Thus, the Penny Price Academy of Aromatherapy is situated across the UK and beyond, offering courses in aromatherapy, reflexology and more, in order to share their extensive expertise. Not only does this allow clients to make the most of their products, it creates valuable employment opportunities for those within the beauty industry, establishing Penny Price as a leader of the sector. The positive impact of Penny Price is not only social, but environmental. As one of the biggest contributors to pollution and climate change, the beauty and cosmetics industry has raised concerns about the ethical and sustainable sourcing of natural materials, with many companies being slow to act. Penny Price is different, having held the value to source only the finest natural ingredients as its central ethos since the brand’s inception. All Penny Price essential oils are naturally farmed without pesticides or insecticides and sourced only from independent UK or Europe- based growers and small farming cooperatives. The company prides itself on its refusal to stock synthetic products or to use lanolin, synthetic perfumes, animal products or essential oils from threatened species in their natural Aromatherapy skincare ranges. The adamant belief in only sourcing natural and organic ingredients has paid off, with all Penny Price essential oils, carrier, base products, hydrolats and many more products besides being certified by the SOIL Association. The company also invests time and effort into ensuring their packaging does not cause avoidable harm to the planet, using minimal packaging, recycling as much as possible and reusing packaging materials, as well as using recyclable jars and bottles. This award-winning small business is truly establishing itself as a superior of sustainable, natural wellbeing and beauty products. This reputation is only being strengthened, as the Penny Price team are constantly learning and researching the latest ingredients and treatments, in order to incorporate their knowledge in products and teaching. In an industry that is continually evolving, Penny Price understands how important it is to stay up to date with every development. This enables the growth that is a key element of the Penny Price culture, as the team work tirelessly on product development, producing new ranges to answer demands of clients and the industry. Most recently, this included supplying hand gels, creams and antiviral oils to help customers stave off Covid-19 and enabling business activity to continue even amidst the UK lockdown. As consumers become more aware of the importance of self-care and holistic wellness, there is growing interest in complementary therapy to aid lifestyles. Penny Price are thriving as a result of this interest, establishing themselves as a high-quality manufacturer and expert formulations resource. The company will soon be expanding into a second site to facilitate their success and extend their global outreach, removing all limits on their ambitions. We are excited to see what’s next for Penny Price Aromatherapy. Contact: Kayleigh Surman Web Address:
