Meet the Founders
Having been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001, Pippa decided to give herself the very best chance of survival by embracing a more natural and organic lifestyle.
With her cancer now in remission, and as a firm believer in the benefits of using natural products, Pippa became increasingly interested in what is applied to the skin and its impact. As a result she left her job as an HR consultant to follow her heart and create a luxury bath and body care range.
Having used essential oils throughout her recovery, Pippa makes sure that only the best quality oils are used for maximum therapeutic effect. These, together with each blend’s other pure and natural ingredients, are key to the brand’s formulations and to Pippa’s personal journey.
Clive has been at the forefront of the organic beauty industry since the early ‘90s when he held the position of Marketing Director for Tisserand, pioneers in affordable essential oil-based products.
Working alongside renowned aromatherapist Robert Tisserand, Clive developed a passion for essential oils and other natural ingredients and how to incorporate them in skincare products without compromising on quality. It is this in-depth industry knowledge, as well as his drive to bring a new lifestyle bath and body care concept to the market, which has led him to partner with his friend Pippa to set up the Blend collective brand.
“I wanted to create an experience people can really enjoy and cherish. I am passionate about combining natural actives at meaningful levels with pure essential oil blends to create outstanding products. Excellence and integrity in all aspects of our brand are important to us from the truly natural ingredients that we insist on through to the design and quality of our packaging.”
