Rhug Wild Beauty: Inspired By Lord Newborough’s Rhug Estate.
Lord Newborough (the Rhug Estate’s owner) has launched a new skincare brand called Rhug Wild Beauty, inspired by the natural, organic ingredients on his estate.
The range includes nine products: a day cream, a night cream, a lip balm, and more.
Rhug Wild Beauty’s products are made with organic, natural, and wild-foraged ingredients from the Rhug Estate, and they’re encased in fully-recyclable packaging. The range is certified by the Soil Association COSMOS, and the products are cruelty-free, vegan, halal, and gluten free. Also, they’re free from sulfates, GM ingredients, artificial fragrances, artificial colours, parabens, and harsh chemicals.
An early pioneer of organic farming, Lord Newborough is passionate about sustainability, and his estate produces it’s own energy across various hydro, geothermal, solar, and wind turbine projects, which has resulted in a carbon negative status for the Rhug farm.
Although Rhug Wild Beauty launched in 2020, the Newborough family has had a presence in North Wales since the 11th Century, and today, Lord Robert Newborough, the 8th Baron Newborough, is committed to an environmentally sustainable way of caring for the Rhug estate land, under the new organic system he put in place 20+ years ago.
In the past, Lord Robert Newborough attended Agricultural college to study farm management, and he travelled to Australia to gain some work experience. When he returned, he took over the estate from his father. “I always believed in sustainable organic farming, and when I had a chance to do my own thing, this is what I followed,” said Lord Newborough.
And that’s exactly what he did. He converted the farm into an organic system, throughout a two-year process, turning it into a thriving business, which spans two farms across nearly 8,000 acres, employing 120 local people across retail, wholesale, green energy, and leisure. Also, Lord Newborough’s organic farm is the ONLY farm in the UK to hold a Royal Warrant.
“Everything we make is built on our respect for the environment, and our heartfelt wish to create something truly exceptional, with the support of our passionate and dedicated team. Inspired by our beautiful surroundings, we call our new collection “Wild Beauty,” concluded Lord Newborough.
Some of Rhug Wild Beauty’s products have won Beauty Bible awards, in 2021, and in 2022.
