We are delighted to share with you that not one but THREE of our Pure Living SkinFoods have been both shortlisted AND Commended in the upcoming FreeFrom SkinCare Awards, due to be announced at the Allergy & FreeFrom Show at Olympia in early June!
Well done to Pure Natal Healing Balm, commended in the 'Mums-to-be' category, while Head to Toe Moisturiser for Men and Everybody Every Day Moisturiser have both been shortlisted for awards in the 'Men's Grooming' and 'Problem Skin' Categories.

We're really proud of our latest achievement - we have been licensed to use the 'Leaping Bunny' logo on all our skincare, certifying that ALL Live Native products are 100% cruelty free with no ingredients or products ever having been tested on animals.
The Leaping Bunny is the trusted mark of the only international no-animal-testing certification. Each company is audited for compliance with the Humane Standards. Live Native is the latest of almost 500 companies certified under the Humane Standards. Find out more about it on the Go Cruelty Free website.
While some products carry labels claiming that their brand is ‘not tested on animals’ or is ‘against animal testing’ ONLY the Leaping Bunny can provide peace of mind.
Founder and Isle of Skye native Vicky Ewbank said:
‘We are so pleased to be licensed to use the Leaping Bunny logo. We are passionate about both our unique living skincare and animal welfare, and are delighted to be able to support the work of Cruelty Free International. The Leaping Bunny is a symbol of our commitment to remain cruelty free. Clear skin with a clear conscience, Live Native really is Pure Living Skincare.'
NOW AVAILABLE IN AUSTRALIA
13 DECEMBER 2012
Earlier this year we met with Sam Sample, a lovely woman whose passion and commitment to guiding others towards a healthier way of life led her away from a successful career in journalism to found her own holistic health company: Be Genki, the animal-, environment-, everything-friendly brand, that advocates a holistic approach to beauty and self-care. She is also the author of Be Happy. Be Healthy. Be Genki., and is regularly interviewed for her advice to be featured in the health and beauty pages of Vogue, InStyle, Madison, Marie Claire, Russh, Famous, Better Health, EcoLuxe and Real Living magazines to name just a few.
So we were tremendously excited when Sam recognised the same commitment to health and purity in Live Native that she holds dear throughout the rest of her life, and chose Live Native as one of the select few brands that she is introducing to Australia.
And if you were wondering about the name ‘Be Genki’ it comes from the Japanese word ‘genki’, meaning to be happy, healthy, and in harmony with oneself on all levels. Who wouldn’t wish for a little Genki in their lives!

HILLSIDE ANIMAL SANCTUARY - NEW ADOPTIONS!
9 JANUARY 2012
With your help this Christmas we managed to raise £40 for Hillside Animal Sanctuary! (See story below.) We've decided to give a little more ourselves, so after a quick office whip-around we now have £50... which means that we can adopt 5 of their beautiful guests!
We asked a few of our Facebook friends who they would like this to be, and the favourites were:
- Candlyfloss the Highland Cow
- Dancer and Prancer the donkeys
- Inti and Lupi the Alpacas
- Beauty the Sheep and
- William the Shire Horse
We look forward to hearing all about their adventures over the coming year. Watch this space for updates!

INTRODUCING OUR NEW LUSCIOUS LIP BALM
2 DECEMBER 2011
We all know how winter dries even the prettiest of lips, and living on the Isle of Skye we know that better than most!
So in order to be fully prepared for the coming winter we thought it would be a good idea to get out the trusty blender once again and whizz up a really delicious - and truly effective - raw lip balm! By blending the finest Ecuadorian raw cacao butter with antioxidant rich white tea and rosehip extracts, and adding just a drop of organic orange oil and vanilla (think healthy Terry's chocolate orange) and that's what we got - magic!
We have a few other flavours in mind for later... peppermint, earl grey tea (bergamot). If you have any requests for us to consider then do email us and let us know!
THIS CHRISTMAS IT'S NOT ALL BAA BAA HUMBUG!
20 NOVEMBER 2011
We love to give and up until the 22nd December we're giving £2.50 from every order we receive through our shop to Hillside Animal Sanctuary, to adopt as many of their little critters as we can.
Hillside Animal Sanctuary is based in Norwich and was founded in 1995 by Wendy Valentine. It is now a home to nearly 2000 rescued animals of all shapes and sizes, although most come from the factory farming industry. Many of these animals have experienced terrible cruelty and neglect and it is only with the tremendous love and care they receive from Hillside that they are able to live the remainder of their lives in peace and comfort. As animal lovers ourselves we are filled with admiration and respect for the work that Wendy and her team do and, with your help, are very happy to be able to send them some well needed funds to help feed and care for their many charges this winter.
You can find out more about Hillside on their website: www.hillside.org.uk
20 OCTOBER 2011
The lovely eco warrior-ess Janey Lee Grace gave us a big 'thumbs up' with her new Platinum Awards. She voted our Essential Woman with frangipani as the best natural moisturiser for 2011 - Thanks Janey!
Janey Lee Grace is the writer of the best selling book Imperfectly Natural Woman and is often touring the UK to advice on how to green up your life and home. She also appears frequently on Radio 2 with Steve Wright. Janey champions many organic and natural companies who produce a diverse range of fabulous products, and we fought off some stiff competition to be voted her favourite natural and organic facial moisturiser.
She has just launched her latest book Look Great Naturally... Without Ditching the Lipstick where she also recommends Live Native Love Lube Sex Lubricant as a healthy alternative to the usual petrochemical-derived intimate lubricants.
