This year, the team at Balance Me have been inspired to look back to the original meaning of Mother's Day - celebrating inspirational women.
This year, the team at Balance Me have been inspired to look back to the original meaning of Mother's Day – a celebration created to honour not only our own mothers, but inspirational and supportive women with whom we have built maternal bonds, and heralding the significance of mothers in society. We found that within the Balance Me head office we all have different examples of inspirational women who have touched our lives, and could talk for hours about how these women have impacted our lives. We want to use this opportunity to thank all of those women for the impact they have made.
As we are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year, we thought it was fitting to spend this Mother’s Day looking at all the women that helped to grow Balance Me from our Directors’ kitchen tables to the international, award winning natural beauty brand it is today.
Balance Me Co-Founder Clare Hopkins says, “When she was Brand Director at Topshop Jane Shepherdson touched my life and changed it immeasurably, so if I could touch one life and say a big thank you, it would be hers. Ten years ago my sister, Rebecca and I were blending products in our kitchen when Topshop approached us and purchased 200 body polishes for their VIPs. This led to a ‘pop up’ shop in Topshop’s Oxford Street flagship where we were spotted by Vogue and John Lewis, and Balance Me was born. We were, and we continue to be, eternally grateful for Jane’s initial support.”
Balance Me Co-Founder Rebecca Hopkins remembers how, “Toni Jade, therapist to the stars, touched my life when she fell in love with our products and introduced them to a number of her celebrity clients including Kate Winslet and Claudia Schiffer who subsequently became fans. Toni is a huge advocate of our Super Moisturising range and she has helped us achieve our dream of getting our products directly onto the skin of such influential women which we will always thank her for.”
Balance Me Co-Owner Sian Jones remembers how her mother always encouraged her to chase her dreams, “I grew up with a working mum myself, and she always told me that I could do anything if I put my mind to it. The fact that I never lost out on quality time with her, despite her working hours really empowered me to start my own family alongside Balance Me. My mum has always had a passion for gardening and I remember how she used to help me pick rose petals, lavender and herbs from our garden so I could make my own mini pots of fragrance which I think really sparked my love for essential oils, aromas and natural ingredients from a very young age! Aroma will always be important to me which is why every product we create has a therapeutic, emotive scent that is a joy to use, and I have my mother to thank for this.”
