Neighbourhood Botanicals

Born from a need to balance the dulling effects that a fast-paced rock’n’roll life has on our peachy skin! Get your glow back with this oil based natural skincare from London. No synthetics, no silicones, no alcohol. Cruelty free, small batch, made fresh in the UK.

Micaela Nisbet discovered the magic of natural oils at an early age. Born and raised on the serene beaches of Australia, Micaela moved to England to pursue her music career, bringing the natural ethos of her homeland to the smoggy streets of London. By her mid-twenties, the touring lifestyle began taking its toll, with the late nights and constant travel making her skin dull and lacklustre. Keen to regain her aussie glow, she frittered away her pay checks on mainstream skincare, irked to find many products packed with plastic fillers or carrying eye- watering price tags. Intent on finding an affordable solution, Micaela returned to blending her own raw oils and extracts, and the results were immediate.

She took an Advanced Diploma of Organic Skincare Formulation to complement her home-grown techniques, and founded Neighbourhood Botanicals - a range of no-BS natural oil-based skincare with solid results. A life-long perfume devotee, Micaela carefully designs each blend to incorporate aromatherapeutic properties alongside a harmonious scent profile. A sound engineer and oil alchemist, her career in live music sees her mixing skincare by day and hits by night. Combining her expertise, 2018 will also see more ‘NBx’ artist collaborations, following the success of Rejjie Snow’s 2017 sellout skincare collab “Young Luv”.

What’s more, all the handsome packaging is fully recyclable, the range is vegan and natural, and there’s no animal testing, no big-pharma, no crazy markups, and no dicey ingredients.
