Happy New Year Everybody!  With a new year often comes resolutions and goals (go to the gym more, eat less chocolate, stop smoking...any of these sound familiar?!), but have you considered a resolution relating to your skin care?  Fun Fact (we love 'em): your skin is the largest organ in your body and absorbs a whopping 60% of what you put onto it into your bloodstream, so a good skincare routine is not only beneficial externally, but internally - if naturally-derived products are used - too!  Skincare is not a modern phenomenon: there are documented accounts from ancient Egypt of...

Ingredient Focus: Vegetable Glycerine

Ingredient Focus: Vegetable Glycerine

Vegetable Glycerine Historically made as a by-product of soap production from animal fats, rest assured we only use vegetable-derived glycerine - a compound of fatty acids - from coconut oil (it can also be extracted from other vegetable origin including palm oil, rapeseed and soy).  Often found in a variety of skincare products, glycerine is an excellent multi-purpose ingredient (in food, cosmetic products and more!) and makes the ideal substitute for alcohol in order to extract botanicals, stops skin drying out when used in moisturisers (as it is a natural humectant, which means it attracts moisture to itself) and helps...

Product Focus: It's All About M.E. Night Cream

Do I really need a night cream? What's the difference? Using a specific night cream should be an integral part of your skincare routine once you reach your 30's - if not before (prevention is better than cure, after all!). Your skin begins to show the first signs of ageing around this age: fine lines, dull patches, and the skin becomes drier and less elastic, and night creams are specifically designed to nourish your skin and help combat these problems.  Moreover, it has been proven that skin loses more essential moisture at night, and it's ability to absorb key nutrients peaks...

To Beard, or not to Beard?

Calling all Men Folk! To Beard or Not to Beard? Harry from Beardsmen.com talks all things facial fuzz... There might be moret o a beard than you first thought.  Hey, we all know they look great (and even better with a good dosage of daily beard oil  and tender loving care) and will keep your face warm for this upcoming winter.   However, did you know that it can potentially “slash your risk of infection” sort of acting like a big bushy filter system ­ and it even works to help maintain youthfulness by blocking out up to 95% of the sun's harmful UV rays? It doesn’t just help your health either it can potentially even give you a lift in your social status too. Studies show that bearded men are not only deemed more attractive and more masculine but general first impressions are deemed ‘more positive’ than beardless men too ( especially when properly cared for ).  They have even been shown to in fact boost your career, not harm it ­ like most have you believe.   Check out 15 more of these little known benefits of growing out a beard below:

White Rabbit Turns Two - Thanks To You!

  White Rabbit Skincare is two years old today! When Melanie started out making products (largely for herself) in her kitchen at home some years ago, she could never have imaged that White Rabbit Skincare would progress to where it is today - with so much more to come! The past two years have been a whirlwind of building good foundations and an amazing customer base.  We have attended vegan events such as the Edinburgh Vegan Festival and Vegfest, and have really enjoyed meeting all of you in person and introducing you to the range.  Key highlights include having three products entered into...
