Our Story

Hi, I'm Sue

In 2011 I became unwell and suffered from ill health for several years, I was eventually diagnosed with a lung condition for which steroids were the only treatment, these in turn caused additional problems, as anyone who has taken steroids will appreciate. Continued ailing health impacted on my ability to work at all.

5 years after my initial bout of illness I was lucky to receive lifestyle information which completely transformed my health and outlook, I gave up all processed food and started to cook everything from scratch – a huge transition for me but within days I started to feel the benefits. I also discovered I was allergic to casein in milk (which was responsible for my lung condition) and gluten. Years later I still follow a no processed food diet (though I do find I can cheat a little without too many adverse effects) and I haven’t had steroids for nearly as long. I’m able to work, exercise and run a business!

Being a Chemist I understand in depth the best combinations of ingredients without using unnecessary additives or chemicals. I initially started making face creams, body butters and bath bombs which I shared with friends and from there interest in what I made grew. Our skin, the body’s biggest organ, absorbs almost anything we put on it, I like to make sure I feed mine the best I can.

My passion for making natural skincare products is a very personal one which is why we only use the finest of ingredients and our range continues to expand. I’m always researching and trialling new recipes and formulations to suit various skin types. My ultimate aim is to offer you an enriched experience of nourishing, natural and synthetic free products from bathing to cosmetics, watch this space!

As well as making natural skincare products we also have a passion for using 100% plastic free packaging which is why we only use recyclable glass and aluminium containers, cardboard and wooden boxes.

Here's what people are saying about us

“As a Head teacher, I often need to de-stress and manage my own well-being. The meditation bath bomb was sent to me as a lovely gift. One evening, feeling the need to relax and unwind, I ran a bath and dropped the bomb in...... it fizzed and defused into the water. Knowing that the ingredients are pure and organic made a real difference to me - having sensitive skin and also being aware that so many products these days contain all sorts of unwanted and unnecessary toxins. From the minute I entered the bath, the smell and feel of the softened water swept my cares away. That night, I slept extremely well! I would very much recommend VOS products and will definitely be buying more!” Many thanks Sue! 01.07.20
Perfect post-bath moisturiser

Love putting this on after a bath, it's really moisturising and smells lovely. Makes my skin feel really hydrated.

Better than any salon shampoo!!!

I washed my hair for the first time using your products and they are amazing. I have always bought expensive salon shampoos: Kerase, Joico, Paul Mitchell and trust me when I say this has topped them all. When I washed my hair it felt nourished, no irritation, and no tangles. I have long thick hair and for once it is tamed using Tea Tree & Thyme Shampoo and Conditioner, without the use of any hair serum before drying and straightening! The smell is amazing! and a little goes a long way. Very happy customer!
