about pennies & feathers
Pennies and Feathers is a new, natural British beauty brand, that was created from a love story.
Our aim is to bring beauty back into our customers lives. Whether it is your skin that needs revitalising, your senses or your spirit.
Our products have been formulated to nourish, soothe and revitalise your skin, promoting a fresh, radiant and healthy glow, and a soft and smooth complexion. All made by hand in small batches in the English countryside,using only the purest quality, and certified organic, botanical oils.
Everything from the beautiful illustrations on the packaging, to the tactile glass containers and the wonderful relaxing scents have been designed to bring you a sense of beauty and calm. The inner tubes of the packaging are illustrated with the ingredients that each bottle holds, and they have been designed especially to be re-used as pretty storage containers for your cotton pads, buds and makeup brushes. A beautiful addition to your dressing table and less waste too.
10% of all profits from the range goes to small, independent charities that provide the invaluable service of support to people who are living with a cancer diagnosis.
a word from our founder, jessica
I’m thrilled that you are interested in my beautiful new award-winning skincare range, and I hope that you will love trying out all of my products. I am a professional makeup artist and I’ve worked across many different genres of the industry for the last 10 years from television, film, fashion magazine shoots, helping brides to look naturally beautiful, and supporting women going through chemo to feel better.
The Pennies and Feathers range was inspired by all my wonderful clients, mostly women (but a few men too) who all wanted a different type of skincare product – natural, certified organic, luxurious and ethical, as well as feeling and smelling great on our skin, and delivering a real escapism ritual.
Pennies and Feathers is dedicated to my mum, who was my main inspiration for the development of the range. She kindled my passion for beauty and skincare and she would have been so excited to use these products. Sadly, she passed away in 2015 from breast cancer. Before she left, she told me that if there was any way that she could let me know that she was still around, then she would do so by leaving pennies and feathers in my path.
There are other special signs which can be found within the illustrations on the packaging. A little touch to let anyone that needs it know that they aren't alone.
A special thank you also must go to some lovely ladies who are patients of The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre, who gave me invaluable feedback to make sure that the final products were gentle, soothing and nourishing even at a time when the skin needs a little more TLC than normal.
the lucky penny...
'See a Penny Pick It Up, Then All Day You Will Have Good Luck'
If you have read our story already, then you may know the importance and significance of the lucky penny to us.
To this day, if Jessica spots one in her path then her whole mood and day can be transformed. It really is the small things in life that count and that can brighten your spirit.
We wanted to share a little of this luck, as we know first hand how helpful it can be, so we have created our own Pennies and Feather's Lucky Pennies.
These are our own 'Golden Tickets' and you may find one crossing your path or accompanying your products one day. Keep hold of them...in your purse, in your jewellery box or wherever you like, but let them bring you comfort when it's needed and a lot of luck from us.
The pennies are pretty exclusive so you can check your number if you receive one to see how many others there are out there. A small token can make the biggest difference.
