Join Neal's Yard Organic
The History of Neal's Yard Remedies
The first Neal's Yard Remedies shop was opened in 1981 by Romy Fraser in Neal's Yard in Covent Garden. The shop offered dried herbs, homoeopathic products, essential oils, Bach flower remedies, and a range of toiletries based on herbs and essential oils.
- In 1985 a small factory was opened in South London to meet increasing demand. In 1986 they opened two new shops and they have continued to grow. They now have 40 shops, 64 Therapy Rooms and 400 stockists in the UK, including department stores like John Lewis and Fenwicks, and can be found in branches of Boots and Waitrose.
- In 2005 Neal's Yard Remedies head office moved from South London to a new purpose-built eco-factory facility at Peacemarsh, near Gillingham, Dorset. That same year Fraser sold the business to Peter Kindersleyformer publisher and owner of Sheepdrove Organic Farm
- In 2007, Romy Fraser was awarded an OBE in recognition for services to the health and beauty industry
- Neal's Yard Remedies Organic was launched by Kindersley in April 2009, and in the United States in September 2009. Neal's Yard Remedies Organic is the multi-level marketing subsidiary of the company.
Their passionate belief is that beauty should be natural, not synthetic, has been at the heart of our business since they started, over 30 years ago. Neal's Yard believe in nature, honesty and transparency, and the right to know what goes into the products you buy.
Their vision was to bring the expertise of the apothecary and our holistic approach to health and beauty to people and communities.
The skin is the body's largest organ, and an active barrier between our bodies and the environment. It's well known that what you put on your skin ends up in your body - just think of nicotine patches.
Over the last 50 years, tens of thousands of new chemicals have been developed, most of which have never been properly tested on humans. We absorb a huge array of these synthetic chemicals through our food, our toiletries, and our immediate environment, and whilst we may not be able to avoid all of these chemicals, Neal's Yard believe it makes sense to do what we can to minimise contact wherever possible.
What's in our products?
When it comes to ingredients, Neal's Yard pride themselves on honesty, integrity and transparency. They make products with the maximum organic, natural and wild ingredients, and carefully select other functional ingredients (detergents, emulsifiers, surfactants etc) with a view to safety, efficacy and biodegradability. The entire range makes use of high quality organic plant-based ingredients, and they fully disclose their ingredient information with their customers, both online and, where space allows, on their packaging.

- 25% commission or discount on Sale items. For example, if an order costs £100 at normal price and has 20% off, the customer will pay £80 You will still earn 25% commission on the reduced price product of £80 (= £20 commission). Or if you are if the order is for yourself, your 25% discount will be applied to the reduced price of £80 (=£20), which will bring it down to £60.
- If you collect orders (non party) from a number of customers and your orders total £150 or more (gross retail value - i.e the price your customer pays) you will also earn Free Shopping and/or 1/2 Price Shopping.
- If you collect orders from a party i.e at an event hosted by one of your customers, you customer will be elegible for the free and/or 1/2 Price Shopping, not you as the consultant.

- If you collect orders, you will be entitled to the Free Shopping and 1/2 Price Shopping.
- If 1 of your customers hosts a party, they will be entitled to the Free Shopping and 1/2 Price Shopping.
