Our Story

Hey guys I’m Tenesia and this is our journey so far….

ETEO started because my transition from a South American country (Guyana) with beautiful sunshine to England, a country with much colder weather in 2004 wasn’t going so well (in a nutshell)… fast forward and here we are. I created our signature product ‘Magic Butter’ for myself as a cure for me and my sensitive, dry, itchy skin in the beginning and then accidently, we ended up creating a business out of it. My nephew who suffers with eczema loved it, my friends loved it and so my husband Danny and I created Earth To Earth Organics; I know we thought the name was spot on too. ;-D

We’re now living in Wales and have begun the process of growing as many of our own ingredients as possible. We believe in the ability to heal our skin, our minds and our bodies with nature and this takes us closer to ensure that our ingredients are grown in soil that’s beautifully filled with biodiversity and taken care of so that your skin and our planet can be the best it ever has.

growing ingredients for skincare

Handmade in Wales

We started like any other small business, in our kitchen with Tenesia researching, formulating and testing every product on herself, continuously perfecting it, before ever reaching the light of day for customers because we truly believe if we wouldn't put it on our bodies we wouldn't put it on yours.

We've now upgraded to our own studio and in the process of growing our own ingredients on our land in the Welsh countryside while still taking the time to hand make everything with great care and intentions.

  • Tenesia Pascal (Co-founder and queen bee)

    Tee left a long career in retail as a visual merchandising manager to persue her passion, not just of formulating and crafting beautiful skincare into a business but creating a platform where she could spark joy and help people in the most meaningful ways possible.

  • Danny Pascal (Co-founder and 'ok kinda guy')

    With over 12 years working in the television industry, it came time for a change to live a life we were passionate about. Bringing Tee's original vision for the business to life has been a beautiful journey for us all and gives Dan great purpose.

  • Kymani Pascal (the actual boss)

    In a hostile takover of the business, born in 2021 he officially took charge of every aspect of the business and still has full control over his mum and dad. His current job role is 'tester of patience'. He's recently been promoted.

Packaging

WHAT WE USE

All of our packaging, from product to delivery contains mixtures of: cardboard, paper, glass and aluminium. The only plastic to come out of our packaging are pump caps for washes and oils, partially in the aluminium pouches and bubble wrap that we up cycle from our own supplier deliveries, to give it further usage. This leaves us 95% plastic free.

WHY WE USE IT

As a brand, we try to be as planet friendly as we can by not using packaging that is harmful to the environment and easily recycled or bio degradable.

We have a rule that if we cannot justify it, we don’t do it. Everything we do has a consequence, so we will always do our best to minimise damage and maximise our efforts for a healthy planet.

 

HOW WE DISPOSE OF IT

Everything we use in our studio is either recycled or repurposed. We keep every scrap piece of paper to make notes on that isn’t recycled and our large bottles that we’re not using end up in our garden as planters for our seeds. We love growing food, so whatever we can use we will.
