About Us

At Neal's Yard Remedies we're driven by the fundamental belief that health and beauty should be less synthetic and be more natural, organic and environmentally friendly. Awareness and interest in natural remedies as well as in organic skin and body care is on the rise. But when we opened our first shop in London, UK, 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.

Neal’s Yard Remedies Canada is a local, family owned business. We have our flagship store on 4th Street in Calgary, stockists across Canada, and a head office in downtown Calgary.  With a national growth strategy in place, this position offers an amazing opportunity to be an integral part of growing the company across the country.
