When selecting products for Firefly I was in a very privileged position having listened to many companies visiting college to promote and train my students in their various products and machines. I was in no doubt that I would invest in Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion.

For Nail Treatment without hesitation I chose OPI.

About OPI

Aromatherapy Oils

NYO logoThis task was the most difficult for me. So many brands specifically for professional salons and on the high street. While researching what was available it became clear to me that there was a huge area of ethics that I was not providing for at Firefly Beauty & Wellbeing –

  • Organic & Natural
  • Environment Friendly
  • Vegetarian
  • Fairtrade
  • Cruelty Free  

A blast from the past ‘Neal’s Yard Organic’ popped onto my screen. On further investigation they also provided professional salon treatments and ticked all the criteria I was looking for, plus a fantastic retail range.

The first Neal’s Yard Remedies shop was opened in 1981 by Romy Fraser in Covent Garden, London.  This small shop had a passionate belief that beauty should be natural not synthetic.

With a vision ‘to bring the expertise of the apothecary and holistic approach to health and beauty to people and communities.

NYO values:

We pride ourselves on honesty, integrity and transparency.
