Argan

This oil is affectionately known as “liquid gold” in its native Morocco.  On my annual trips to Morocco I’ve been lucky enough to watch the process of extracting the oil from the nut by Moroccan women who do this by hand.  Each nut is cracked between two stones. The kernels are then removed, crushed with a pestle and mortar and then ground into a thick paste by hand with a stone. The paste is then squeezed by hand to produce the oil.  It’s fascinating to watch!  This beautiful golden oil is packed with vitamin E and is anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory and wonderfully healing.

Our founders, Wendy and Kelly, are the heart and soul of Husk & Seed. Wendy was a massage therapist and knows how stress shows up on your skin, and Kelly was a psychotherapist and now a qualified skincare formulator who understands how emotions affect your complexion. Together, they've created products that do more than just make your skin look good – they make you feel amazing inside and out.

Why Handcrafted?

We've been making our skincare by hand for over six years, and we're not stopping now. We use small batches to ensure everything's super fresh and top quality. Plus, we're all about natural ingredients that are good for you and the planet. When you choose Husk & Seed, you're not just getting great skincare, you're getting a little bit of love in every bottle.

About Kelly - From Kitchen Creations to Crafted Skincare: My Passion Journey

Skincare has always held a special place in my heart, even from a young age. I remember being captivated by the lotions and potions on my mum's dressing table, eagerly experimenting with them all. My childhood curiosity extended to the kitchen, where I'd concoct DIY masks from honey, yogurt, avocado, and even porridge oats!

While my career path initially led me to become a qualified psychotherapist with over 10 years of experience, the pull towards skincare never truly faded. Perhaps it was always meant to be.

Today, as a qualified skincare formulator, my passion remains as vibrant as ever, albeit with a touch more sophistication. Some of those same childhood ingredients, like the ones in our facial exfoliant, have come full circle, finding their way into our meticulously crafted products.

Husk & Seed is a culmination of my lifelong fascination with skincare, and I'm thrilled to share it with you. Every product is formulated with the same love and dedication I felt as a child, ensuring you experience the joy of natural, effective skincare.

About Wendy - From Healing Touch to Holistic Skincare.

My journey with Husk & Seed began through my massage and reflexology practice. Witnessing the concerns of pregnant women and cancer patients seeking natural, gentle skincare options sparked a desire to create something more than just typical massage oils.

Furthermore, I encountered individuals overwhelmed by stress, yearning for self-care solutions beyond temporary fixes. This experience ignited a passion to develop a skincare approach that goes beyond the surface, offering a moment of respite and self-connection.

Husk & Seed embodies this philosophy. Our products are formulated with 100% natural ingredients, offering gentle yet effective care. More importantly, we encourage our customers to embrace a mindful skincare ritual – a few precious moments each day to de-stress, soothe the skin, and unwind the mind.

Husk & Seed is not just about skincare; it's about creating a space for self-care and mindful connection. We invite you to join us on this journey to discover the power of natural ingredients and the transformative potential of a dedicated skincare ritual.
