Heyland & Whittle Ltd
Paddy & Ursula - bought a fledgling natural handmade soap business 18 years ago from a friend. By joining our two surnames - Heyland & Whittle was born, with Paddy's family crest as our logo.
Our vision was to make natural soap, filled with essential oils herbs and spices. We use only the very best natural ingredients.
Our home fragrance candles and diffusers are inspired by and true to those found in Nature.
We use traditional recipes to create our candles. We blend responsibly sourced, premium grade soy wax with natural botanicals. This blend is then hand poured with precision into our glass containers.
Our diffusers are filled with a responsibly sourced, eco-friendly carrier oil blended to create our unique layered fragrance notes with traces of aromatic essential oils. The glass containers are decorative, etched and sprayed as well as functional.

Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plansSustainability plays a huge role in the Company as a whole... and we intend to move more toward a more eco and ethical product collection using 100% recycled glass for our vessels and 100% recycled card for our packaging which is also recyclable. Our soap products are now Palm Free, although we previously used Palm Oil from a sustainable source we decided to reformulate our recipes and are now Palm Free.Sustainability initiativesWe redeveloped our hand wash & body wash formula to become suitable for an all over hand and body washing experience rather than two separate products, there by reducing our plastics by half. We use bottles which can be recycled. We have implemented the idea of the shops buying "bricks" of raw soap which have no packaging at all, where the customer can purchase a piece of soap simply popped into a brown paper bag or piece pf greaseproof paper... We are launching a collection of 100% recycled glass vessels for Candles and Diffusers. We have offered suggestions of how these lovely vessels can be re used and re purposed. Our packaging is now being printed by a local UK based business in 100% recycled card which is 100% recyclable.Pledges for the yearWe next need to invest in "bags for life" for when we attend retail events or are selling to shops our carrier bags are currently paper and we aspire to a bag for life!Sustainable ProductsPalm Free Soap.We have changed our core product ingredient listing from a sustainable Palm oil, to having no Palm oil at all without compromising the quality of our lovely product. Palm Free is the ultimate way ahead and we are proud to have made the decision for change, to meet the consumer demands.Soy Wax Candle100% Recycled glass vessels for our "Eco Candle Collection" to house the natural soy wax blend we use. Minimal cardboard packaging with a "wrap" rather than a box, and made from 100% recycled card which is 100% recyclable.
