When it comes to our skin, nature knows how to soothe, smooth, hydrate, refresh, tone and feed us. It probably won't come as any surprise that rose is not only soothing to the skin, but in traditional Chinese medicine it is soothing to our whole being. Seaweeds are packed with antioxidants that are good both to eat and to turn back the clock with our skin. Manuka honey gives hair softness while coffee is an incredible exfoliator (it really wakes up your skin).
Sister & Co teaches that you don't need to spend a fortune on expensive beauty products to feed your skin. All you need is a few ingredients that are available in your local supermarket and the alchemy can begin! Skin Food features 70 nourishing recipes which show you how to make luxurious skincare products from scratch, so you can fill those beautiful glass pots sitting in your bathroom with incredible scrubs, butters and salts. Make your own home into a spa, ease away the stress of the day, and bring yourself back to nature one scoop at a time.

Sophie gave up her career as a lawyer after travelling to India and being given raw coconut oil there to clear up her skin. On returning home she couldn't find the same grade of coconut oil here and decided to source it herself, launching her first product in 2014. Now the range features incredible sounding products including almond milk bath soak with black cardamom and raw coconut lip tonic with lemon myrtle and wild mint.
