Then, we took a look at the really innovative Rockit brand which combines ingenious ideas with the power to bring those ideas to life. They create products which really get babies to sleep including a pram which mimics the sensation of being walked even when the parents are taking a well-earned rest and a pram/cot attachment which simulates the sensation of being driven in a car in order to get the most resistant of sleepers to nod off!
Today, I’m excited to write about Pure Lakes who also have a very unique and inspiring story behind their brand!
ut first of all, let’s look at the awards they took home from the 2022 Bambini Baby Awards:
Best Body Butter for a New Mum
Gold Winner - Pure Lakes Skincare - Mimosa & Petitgrain Shea Body ButterBest Massage
Product for New Mum
Bronze Winner - Pure Lakes Skincare - Mimosa & Petitgrain Shea Body Butter
The history of Pure Lakes begins back in 2006 when Sandra and Iain Blackburn founded the company in pursuit of creating natural skincare products for sensitive skin. Sandra applied her background as a trained chemist and her science knowledge and combined it with a passion for natural, plant-based ingredients and soon Pure Lakes skin care was on the market. Among their earliest customers were Claire, a former actress and Salsa Dance Teacher, and her husband Gareth McKeever. The couple were keen to return to the Lake District and in 2016 bought the company. They continue to work with Sandra and Iain, making sure that the brand’s original values continue to be upheld. The brand has continued to grow, with 12 people now making up the team as Pure Lakes strives to build upon the original foundations laid by Sandra and Iain.
I absolutely love this story, it really shows how much Claire and Gareth believed in the product to make such a big decision to buy the company as well as relocate their family. However, despite it being a big move, clearly the risks were greatly reduced due to all the parties' obvious passion for the products and their shared values. I also love how Sandra and Iain still work closely with Claire and Gareth, even after the sale, adding so much value to the team. Claire, also offers personal and direct responses to any questions people may have about the products. This is a really nice touch, especially since I know many people with sensitive skin need to ask questions about skin care products before they buy.
Do check out Pure Lakes if you haven’t already and congratulations to them on their deserved wins! Thanks again for joining me for a little look at behind the scenes with another one of the winners at the 2022 Bambini Baby Awards, I’ll be back soon!
Ciao for now
