WHO WE ARE
A Place for PeopleWho Buy Less but Better
We, at Handmaids make natural skin food with love and care.
By hand and in person, we blend carefully selected natural and organic ingredients
and prepare our products in small quantities to preserve maximum
freshness and nutrition.
WHAT WE DO
We take our ingredients from Nature and try to make sure that they come from sustainable, organic or biodynamic produce, to guarantee the wellbeing of all – our customers, the producers and Nature as an ecosystem. We use only the highest quality essential oils, herbal extracts, cold-pressed oils and a range of natural ingredients, rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
We oppose violence. Naturally, our products are not tested on animals and we don’t work with such suppliers. We are now officially a company certified as Cruelty Free by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). All our products however, are tried extensively by us and our friends and then tested and certified according to EU legislation.
Our packaging is minimal because we value Nature.
We are Tania and Maia.
We are both honest, good hearted, hard working and cheerful but each in her own way and at a different pace. Tania is a truly sincere Earth person who gets along very well with kids and animals. She always manages to get the job done and to act adequately thanks to her great patience and high spirit. Maia with her stormy moods is more of a Moon person. She manages her tides with a good sense of humour and infectious laughter inherited from her grandmother. She speaks quietly and therefore prefers to communicate in writing.
HOW WE STARTED
The whole story started as a personal project. To make something valuable with our hands. Lead by the conviction, tied in the city, that everyone has the right of access to Nature. Because we love the city, but we love walking barefoot better. Out of gratitude for life. Or just out of love for Lavender.
We started with the Lavender Balm. And it turned out wonderful. Friends and relatives tried it. And then the nephews – the tribal children, they are important. Then Maggie, who’s allergic to almost anything. And the neighbour, struggling with some skin condition. We started getting orders and blending new recipes.
So we decided to celebrate what we’ve got and to pass on the wellness. Pure, Bulgarian and handmade.
