The Royal Horticultural Society has launched a new range of toiletries in partnership with its licensing partner Heathcote & Ivory, a leading name in British beauty and fine toiletries.
Called Home Grown, the vegan-friendly beauty and wellness collection takes inspiration from the wellbeing benefits of growing vegetables, herbs, and flowers at home and includes a 100ml Hand Cream and Twist Key, a Care For Hands Gift Set, Scented Soothing Oat Soap on a Dish, Hand Essentials with two 30ml Handcreams and more.
The Heathcote & Ivory RHS Home Grown range will be available from March 10th at RHS shops, online, and via leading garden centres across the UK.
Not only are the ingredients in the range inspired by nature’s home-grown gifts such as carrot seed oil, beetroot extract and pumpkin extract, but both the ingredients and the packaging reflect the focus of the partners in this agreement on sustainability and environmentally friendly messaging.
For the packaging, environmentally friendly glass bottle and aluminium tubes and post-consumer recycled plastic tubes are used. All products are cruelty-free and vegan-friendly.
The items – and the packaging – also make use of designs inspired by artwork from the RHS Lindley Collections, the world’s largest collection of botanical art. The designs were also inspired by the ingredients – carrot seed oil, snow mushroom, and beetroot and pumpkin extract – used in the formulations.
Established in London in 2000 by Denis Aaronson, Heathcote & Ivory has grown into a lifestyle brand exporting around the world to over 35 countries. Heathcote & Ivory collections are stocked in renowned department stores across the UK as well as independent boutiques and speciality retailers.
The RHS Home Grown collection is the latest range in the very successful RHS partnership with Heathcote & Ivory that launched in spring 2019 with the Flower Blooms Daisy Garland and Tender Palm toiletry ranges. Trellis, the third release in the RHS Flower Blooms series, launched in the autumn of the same year, while the most recent in the series was RHS Flower Blooms Lavender Garden, which launched in the spring of 2020.
Denis Aaronson, managing director, Heathcote & Ivory, said: “We are delighted to be continuing our wonderful partnership with the RHS, whose tireless support of gardeners and gardening has encouraged us to produce a range inspired by the joys of growing vegetables, herbs and flowers at home.”
Lesley Aaronson, creative director, Heathcote & Ivory, added: “The design of the RHS Home Grown range celebrates the joy of growing vegetables and flowers, their vibrant colours and beautiful shapes – a delightful series of images and products inspired by a lasting and valuable partnership.”
Shereen Llewellin, licensing executive, RHS, added: “Wellbeing has long been one of the major benefits of growing vegetables, herbs and flowers, and this collection perfectly captures the mental and physical rewards of home growing. It’s a collection designed to nurture frequently washed hands, soothe tired limbs and uplift the spirits.”
