Introducing Terre Verdi: a pioneering organic skincare company based in the UK. Founded by Alessandra de Gregorio, Terre Verdi is committed to crafting ethical, natural products that heal both skin and soul.
Alessandra grew up in Sicily, developing a deep love of, and respect for nature. After living in the fast-paced environments of the cities of New York and London as an adult, she decided to slow her life right down here in the UK, and enjoy the experience of raising her family. Because of this time with her children and family, Alessandra was led to rediscover her love of all things natural, reconnecting her to nature and the environment.
Longing to find clean, non-toxic beauty products, Alessandra returned to the essential oils of her native Sicily and realised this was something she could (and should) share with more people. With newly-found inspiration, she set about creating her own organic skincare line.
Today, Terre Verdi's products range from cleansers and toners to moisturisers, serums, and masks. Top sellers include the NeroliPom moisturiser, one of the first water-based face creams to achieve COSMOS organic certification and winner of 2023's 'Best of Organic Innovations' at the Soil Association BOOM Awards. There is something for everyone as the collection caters to all skin types.
Ingredients are ethically sourced and organic whenever possible - the majority of the range is 84-100% certified organic. ALL of the products are natural, using 100% natural botanical ingredients.
Terre Verdi's product range is vegan, and as members of the Soil Association and Leaping Bunny, Terre Verdi adheres to strict standards around sustainability and animal welfare.
The business is pioneering in their use of biophotonic glass packaging for organically certified products. This glass protects the products from visible light exposure (excluding violet and infra-red light) to maintain the potency of natural formulations, and keep the products fresher for longer.
On organic certification, Alessandra says "I really embrace everything that the certification is for, from the choice of packaging used to make sure it can be recycled; the choice of ingredients and exclusions of harmful ones; the making sure that there is a trace of ingredient provenance, as they need to be traced back to the source; and so on. We want for our skin to stay healthy, and that logo represents an opportunity we all have to keep safe from harmful products."
Terre Verdi won the Blue Patch Award in 2016 for their commitment to sustainability. The company and its products reflect a holistic vision of interconnected body, mind, and spirit. Their products aim not just to nourish skin, but soothe the soul through the integrity and care put into each formula.
