KELITA BIGNALL’S ORGANIC PRODUCTS ‘CHANGE THE SKIN’

Having experienced mild acne as a teenager – and severe acne scarring in her early 20s – Kelita Bignall couldn’t leave the house without makeup. She decided that enough was enough and turned to prescription strength skincare remedies.

For the first time in over six years, Kelita started going outside without makeup – but after two months off the products the acne and the resulting scars came back.

Fed up and wanting to follow a healthier lifestyle, Kelita started to look into the science of the skin and attended courses on how to make skincare products. Before long she was mixing her own lotions and potions and soon became known for her knowledge about skin and hair care, giving advice to friends and family.

Change your skin

It was during this time that Kelita decided to use all of the the knowledge she’d amassed and create a line of organic skincare products that actually create a change in the skin, rather than just being free from certain ingredients. And so Yours Truly Organics was born.

‘Every last drop of every product is representative of the struggles I have had with my skin and how badly it affected my self-esteem’, says Kelita. The skincare products that she has developed are Ecocert natural and organic certified and have all been formulated to improve the overall condition and appearance of the skin. Ingredients include Argan oil, peach kernel oil, patchouli oil, pomegranate seed oil, blood orange oil, Gatuline® Skin-Repair BIO and OSILIFT® BIO.

Getting into the shops

Yours Truly Organics launched at the Natural & Organic Products Show at Olympia in mid-April. ‘The show went really well and we had the opportunity to meet many retailers, bloggers and press’, said Kelita. ‘I don’t think I’ve talked that much about myself ever! But it was great to see so much interest in the products. We will continue to build on that over the coming weeks and months and have been sending our products to retailers for further review and hope to have some good news about retail stockists soon.’

The philosophy behind Yours Truly Organics is that you can get beautiful skin by using products packed with ingredients that are good for your health. So while the products are beautiful on the outside, they are also beautiful on the inside.

The Yours Truly Organics range includes Take it away! Gel Cleanser, Balancing Toner, Fix Me! Repairing Serum and Face Base Face Balm. You can get the whole lot in a beautiful premium gift box through the Yours Truly Organics website.
