Welcome to Fabula Botanical Skincare - I'm Pip Dean and I create in small batches and by hand, a range of 100% pure botanical skincare products from my base at Waikanae beach. I produce beautiful skincare products - moisturisers, healing balms, handcreams, a cancer care kit, cleanser, cooling facial toner mist, face masks and more which are soothing and nourishing for your skin. I also make bespoke products for people to help their individual conditions.
Besides using only plant-based oils and butters, I infuse organic plant extracts (many of which I grow) into vegetable oils and tinctures and use these in my products to take them to another level. I also use therapeutic grade pure essential oils and healing crystals and I infuse everything I make with healing reiki energy. There are no parabens, sulphates, 'fake' colours or known irritants and testing is only done on human guinea pigs. My packaging is 95% glass and I have a re-fill option for most products.
I have a Natural Skincare Diploma and a Certificate in Aromascience and have completed Rongoa 1. I'm constantly researching healing the natural way, using the incredible power of botanicals that have been used on the skin for millennia. I make products that are kind to skin and don't have any of the chemical nasties that most mass produced soaps and skincare have - and which I believe are contributing to the phenomenal increase in allergies and rashes. My range is great for 'normal' skins and a relief to 'sensitive' types and for skin issues such as eczema, acne and allergies.
