RSPCA Good Business Awards - Winner in 2009

Exciting news! The Gamrie Goat was the winner
of the RSPCA Good Business Award 2009
(Small Cosmetics Company).
The goats and I are over the moon! It was especially
touching to receive this award, as due to recent
changes in animal testing legislation, there will be
no future RSPCA awards in the cosmetics category.

You can read about this on page 14 of the
RSPCA 's ethical consumer magazine ~ Good Things.

GOATS OF THE YEAR

2010

I think that all of the Gamrie Goats should be recognised for their tireless work in promoting good skin care!

 

 


NEWS

Time passes so quickly! It is now very much like Autumn at Christmas Croft. The lambs look
like sheep now and spend more time grazing than playing, and the ewes have regained their
nicely rounded figures! The hens are still laying plenty of eggs, and I am hoping to harvest
some honey very soon from the beehives (of course the honey will be used in
Balmy's Bee Good soap!)

Early summer is a very busy time on the croft - now the goats are grazing in the fields a
lot the weaknesses in the fencing become apparent, The goats are so clever at finding
them and much time is spent trying to outwit them and stop them eating the 6000 hedge
plants I put in a few winters ago. The sheep also need a lot of watching at this time of
year - they can get ill so quickly. Fortunately goats are very robust and have a strong
will to live!

Seven of the Jacob ewes have produced 14 lambs between them and it is one of the
great joys of this time of year to take a time out to watch the young ones playing
together, forming gangs to run madly around the fields together, and cuddling up together
in the shelter at night.

Sunny, our lovely Billy goat has moved on to an excellent new home nearby. It was
necessary to re-home him to avoid in-breeding, and I was lucky enough to be
approached by someone looking for a Billy who has an obvious love of goats.

JUST A REMINDER : please do remember that if you would like to try any of
the products - including the Skin Cream - before you buy, please do just ask and
I will be delighted to send samples free of charge. As someone with sensitive skin
myself, I do understand that it can be difficult (and expensive!) to find products to suit
.

I have had some excellent feedback recently about my products (see further down the page).
Laura emailed to tell me that she tried Balmy's Bee Good Honey soap on her hair and it worked
brilliantly as a shampoo! Of course I then tried it and have to agree. I think it would be useful to take
on holiday to use as a soap and shampoo bar combined.

I have had some great write-ups in the press in 2008/9, including a recommendation from 'The Lady'
magazine, a mention in the shopfront section of 'Gardens Illustrated' magazine as a product for the
eco-conscious (kindly recommended by Alys Fowler, head gardener of BBC's Gardeners' World),
and a 2 page article in Amelia's Magazine, which was accompanied by a superb, specially commissioned
illustration. I have also been interviewed by Scottish Farmer for an article coming soon.

You will notice that the new products are now available on the site! Goosey Lucy's Egg Shampoo
is selling as fast as I can make it, and there is an encouraging flow of orders for all the products.
The last few weeks have been very busy for me. As well as making the products, I have been selling
at various Farmer's Markets, and have been giving lots of talks about my products and goats. I have
had a wonderful time at many Scottish Women's Rural Institute meetings, where I not only got a
warm welcome, but also got to judge the baking competitions - what a brilliant perk!

I recently had a brainwave about the packaging in my gift baskets. Up until now I had been recycling
the various materials that come as packaging in the parcels that I order. With the increasing volume of
orders that I am now getting, this was no longer enough, so I looked out the fleeces from our Jacob
sheep that were awaiting the great day when I would learn to make felt. I put them in a pillowcase,
washed them, and hey presto had some natural,compostable packing material! I've put a note on the
gift baskets with suggestions for how to re-use it (bird nesting material, packaging, composting, spinning,
felting etc etc...)

Don't forget that I can make up lovely gift baskets to order, and send them gift wrapped diract to
the recipient together with a unique 'Gamrie Goat' gift card with your own personal message.

 

 

CUSTOMER COMMENTS

I have been getting some lovely comments from customers about my products, and I
thought it might be helpful to people who are thinking of buying to read  some of them:


I just wanted to tell you that I got my soap yesterday. It arrived perfectly on my anniversary! The gift basket
is fabulous and I know that I am going to just love the soap. I used it last night on my face and it was so
mild and gentle on my horrible winter/hard water skin. It left it very soft and I almost felt that I didn't need
any moisturizer.

A fellow American expat recommended your soap to a forum for us expats and I suspect that you will be
getting many orders from us. Thank you for such a great product and great service. I will be returning for
more when I run out.

Thanks again,

Kelly

I just want to thank you for making soap that I can actually use without my skin itching.
My hands are very grateful!

I'm currently restocking my supply: I won't use anything else since I made my first order, because they're
the only soaps I've found that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. Thank you for a perfect (inexpensive!)
product, and great service. I've recommended you to all my family and friends.

Yours,
Rebecca

P.S. My mum really liked the shampoo bar. She hates conventional shampoos and wants to save the
environment, so it was a good all-round solution.

............................................................................................................................................................

I am delighted to order more soap and cream as my friend has found them so helpful. She needed to
remove all the ointment prescribed by the hospital before surgery and found the soap both helpful and
soothing. She has asked me to send for more cream as that too has been so beneficial. She is making
good progress after surgery so your help in making her more comfortable has been much appreciated.
Again, many thanks

Thank you for confirming my order. Firstly I would like to say how fantastic your product is, I suffer quite
badly with Psorisis and your soaps and creme has helped my skin condition greatly!! A family member
recently purchased some of your products for me and I have also passed on my recommendations to
others.

Hello Christine,

Just wanted to tell you that your soap, skin cream, and shampoo are the best
I have ever used! I have skin and other allergies and have been overjoyed with the
way your products have soothed all that was ailing me.

I am so glad I found you, and can't thank you enough for all you do. I am your
customer for life!

I have to tell you that your cream is the first thing that has given my husband relief in years from his
cracked hands.

We have tried everything medical - skin patch tests the lot, but nothing ( even the prescribed creams he
was given had something in them that iritated his hands further) seemed to help, then we tried the herbal
route and again not much relief. They cannot tell him what is causing the problem and it only started in the
last 5 years.

He jokes that it must be me that he's alergic too as that's not long after we got together!

Since you can't stop using your hands it has been a constant source of pain and irritation for him and
often gets him down.

My father saw the article on your cream in the Sunday Post and came to see you to get some soaps &
cream and we have never looked back!

It is the only thing that softens his hands at the end of his working day and seems to have stopped the
skin from cracking too which is just great as they are not nearly so sore.

I doubt we will now ever find a cure but as long as we can keep the problem to a minimum, it helps greatly.

Please don't stop making your fabulous soaps & creams!!

Thank you.
Kind Regards
Beth & Steve
