Durrell Jersey Zoo stocks full range

Gerard Durrell’s conservation centre in Jersey Channel Islands, Jersey Zoo, now stocks a full range of Manomara ethical outdoor skincare products.

Buyers at Durrell’s Trinity gift shop are dedicated to offering palm-free products because deforestation for palm oil market devastates Orangutans’ habitat. Now, Jersey Zoo stocks Manomara’s low impact formulas made from luxury botanical ingredients.

A vegan version of the original best seller Soul Butter is also available at Durrell.

Both teams look forward to collaborative work, launching a refillable jar campaign on the Island as well as continuing to cut out one-use plastic packaging.

Hollywood star Henry Cavill is an ambassador for Durrell and will be in the Island on Sunday 13th May 2018 for the Durrell Dash, a 13 k run raising money for the conservation trust. Manomara will also be there.

Longueville Manor | Reuse and refill programme

Manomara’s collaboration with Longueville Manor Cottage Garden Spa continues to grow; the boutique hotel now stocks hand made candles, organic facial oil, body wash and salt scrub as well as the unique collaborative massage oil inspired by the botanicals in the Manor’s walled garden.

We all commit to reusing glass bottles which are collected from the spa and refilled at Manomara’s micro laboratory.

Manomara in Marrakesh

In September this year Manomara adventured to Marrakesh to explore souks and the community’s Medina streets, learning about time honoured cosmetic ingredients and a traditional Moroccan Hammam.

Back from our travels we brought rose water, black soap, and clay masks and a new love for eucalyptus steam rooms and all over body scrubbing. You can’t be shy – leave your bra and coyness at the door of a hammam – but you will leave feeling re-liberated & contentedly good.

Gift for Gary Barlow

On 16th September this year we were lucky enough to be graced with music from the brilliant and well-loved band Take That.

Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald flew to Jersey to perform a private set organised by Elaine & Chris Fairfax who bid for the gig at a charity auction for Children in Need, then re-donated their prize to raise money for Durrell’s Sumatran Orangutan haven project.

Manomara donated 50 gift bags and three went to particularly special guests:) They each received a jar of hand made Soul Butter and a Rainforest Candle made from eco soy and surplus local beeswax.

The event was attended by Dr Tessa Hartmann CBE, Dr Lee Durrell & ITV local news anchor Jess Dunsdon.

Low-fi cosmetics celebrated

‘In an industry fuelled by technological advances (in products, machines and techniques), it is notable that (one can) simply, and rather magically, used nothing but hands and a selection of serums and oils’ to make yourself look like a lifted and better version of yourself.

‘Who knew that low-fi could be so spectacularly effective?’

Says Sophie Bloomfield in her facial article, Harper’s Bazaar, February 2016.

We agree

london calling

Been in the big smoke to meet a global beauty retailer and the good news is.. one senior beauty insider keeps a Manomara product on her desk.

Being a little brand, on a little Island, with product hand made by the sea, I’m smiling about the fact that she’s recognised the thought and hard work that’s gone into Manomara and she knows she can trust it every day.

Big love xxx Happy new year
