Becoming parents brings many new perspectives on life. We want to do our best for our children, taking care about what they're eating, and what goes onto their skin. We sure you care what is going into your skin too!
What's in your personal body care products? Take a look!
For even simple products like shampoo and soap, most brands seem to contain a long list of ingredients, most of which we aren't familiar with and don’t know where they come from.
Are they natural or synthetic chemicals? Do they pass tests to make sure they're safe: for the people who use them, the people who make them, and the living systems that have to deal with them once we've used them?
I started to think about the personal care products I used, to nourish and repair his skin when climbing, mountaineering or cycling.
What was soaking into his skin?
Why did it need those ingredients he'd never heard of?
Why was it packed in plastic that the local council doesn’t collect for recycling?
What effect did it have on living systems, especially when he was wild camping and washing in a nearby stream or lake?
Could I create something that made me feel good about the product and its ingredients? Something to clean, protect and nourish his skin and hair, and that’s kind to everyone and everything that came into contact with it?
The answer is YES!
We have a small range of super-functional products, designed to help you do your thing, and do your best. Made in Yorkshire: from natural and organic ingredients. Helping people and our planet. FeGoo!

Cold Process Soap with Citronella
As a nation we have finally realised it’s time to change with a huge shift towards sustainable packaging options. We want to see less plastic on our shelves and non-recyclable materials become a thing of the past.
When we began designing our packaging that’s exactly what we kept in mind.
Our packaging is robust and durable and most importantly, easily recyclable! We are using aluminium tins for our packaging, you find plastic in some of our packaging- but it is only used when absolutely nothing else outweighs it’s benefits, and the plastic used is as easily recycled.
How will your investment help us?
Investing in us will help us:
Cover the remaining costs to launch our company
Cover start up promotions / advertisement of our products
This will help us get our products to market and hopefully make people stop and think about what personal care products they are using and the amount of single use plastic is that is been used in body care products. We want people to use natural plant-derived products whilst doing their thing in the great outdoors, from commuter to backpacker or rock climber to weight lifter. We have a product for you.
You can feel good and still do your thing!
