About Neal’s Yard Remedies

At Neal's Yard Remedies, we're driven by the passionate belief that health and beauty should be more natural and organic, less synthetic. This passion, and our firm belief that it's down to all of us to protect our precious planet, is at the heart of everything we do.

At Neal’s Yard Remedies, we like to think of ourselves as pioneers. Today, awareness and interest in natural remedies, skin and body care are on the increase and we operate in more than 21 countries across 5 continents. But when we opened our first shop in London in 1981, in a then forgotten corner just minutes from Trafalgar Square, we were one of the few pushing against the synthetic chemical approach to skin and health care that had been adopted by much of the industry. Our vision has always been to bring the expertise of the apothecary and our holistic approach to health and beauty to local communities.

Neal’s Yard Remedies operates independently in Canada and includes 3 channels: our retail boutique in Calgary, an e-commerce shopping experience and coast-to-coast wholesale partnerships.
