Delphio Creator and Founder

Delphio facial oil is light, easily absorbed, deeply hydrating and nourishing. It's packed full of vitamins and anti-oxidants from the nine100% organic plant oils in this unique blend. We all live busy lives and I want to offer you a moment of self-care that uplifts your spirits and calms your senses. As well as the anti-aging properties, this facial oil has emotional, grounding benefits too. That’s the special blend of beautiful, ethically-sourced, therapeutic grade essential oils I use, which includes lavender - known to lower cortisol levels, turmeric - a miracle healer, and frankincense - the benefits of which are so far reaching it's known as the King oil. Essential oils penetrate the epidermis on a deep level to help the healthy regeneration of skin cells. You’ll feel the benefits immediately and continue to be happy with the results over the coming weeks and months.

 

So a bit about me! I’m of mixed heritage, my father is Welsh and my mother is Indian. My mum, Ranjeet, grew up in Nairobi, Kenya and her mother, my Muma, would vigorously rub all manner of herb-infused oily concoctions to soothe all their ailments. When I discovered plant and essential oils a few years ago and introduced them to my mother she said she was immediately transported back to her childhood. 

 

Something deeply connected me to these potent plant-based oils, it feels very much part of my Indian roots to be attracted to natural oils and remedies. My learning curve has been exponential. I immediately wanted to know as much as I could about their benefits and uses. I soon understood more about the toxic load we’re absorbing with the products we use, so I began making my own products for my family. I wanted to be in control of what we're all putting on our skin, especially as I have young children. Hitting my 40s made me want to up my beauty game and that’s how this facial oil was created. It’s 100% pure ingredients of the highest quality. I have been using it twice daily ever since, playing around with the formula along the way and giving it to friends, who have all told me how much they love it. Finally the idea of making it more widely available was put to me by my dear friend, Beauty Editor Vishaka Robinson. Her glowing feedback convinced me and so here we are!

Although I believe self-care should be entirely guilt-free, for anyone feeling that niggle that they shouldn't put themselves first, here’s another incentive; I pledge to donate 3% of each sale to Ocean Generation. We are an oceanic planet and we all want a safe future for our children - taking care of the environment is crucial in that.

 

Special thanks goes to skincare guru Jen Auerbach, CEO of Clary Collection, for her support and guidance. Thanks to Shaks, Sammy, Lizzie & Nattas for being my sounding boards and testers, and to Claire Alexander Moore for her vision and photography. Heartfelt thanks also goes to my husband, Darren, and my mum for being as excited about this venture as I am. Mum ran her own business for 20 years, named Kiron Soft Furnishings which used my middle name, so it’s been a thrill to discuss this with her. I feel I’m channeling my Muma too with this and that couldn't make me happier. Finally, following in the family tradition of naming our businesses after our children, a big thank you to Delphine and Theo whose names I combined to create 'Delphio'.
