Yaoh welcomes Lucy!


Hello, I'm Lucy! I've just joined Yaoh and I'm absolutely thrilled to be here - I totally believe in what we do and it's so nice to have the opportunity to work for such an ethical firm. I'm a lifelong vegetarian and Yaoh products are close to my heart. I recently graduated from university with a First in Arts Management and am putting the skills I have learnt to good use by marketing Yaoh and running our social media. I'm also writing the e-bulletins and running the competitions and I look forward to you all getting in touch with me with your competition entries and via our Facebook and Twitter soon!

Product of the month


Yaoh Hemp Lipbalms

When we brought out our first Yaoh lipbalm in 2003, we had little idea that they would become such a big seller and so popular with our customers. Made with organic hemp seed oil, candelilla wax and olive oil with some addition herbs such as comfrey and calendula added, these lipbalms keep your lips in tip top condition and come in five irresistible flavours – mango, spearmint, coconut, strawberries n cream and blueberry. Our lipbalms are vegan and free from petroleum and other additives. They have twice won the award for Best Cruelty Free Non-Animal Product by The Vegan Society and remain our biggest selling item. And as an added bonus, we are currently offering 20% off our lipbalms until October 31st 2011.
