14th October, 2021



The maker of award-winning Fit Pit natural deodorant is recognised by the Soil Association

The maker of award-winning Fit Pit natural deodorant - The Green Woman, is celebrating receiving COSMOS Organic certification from The Soil Association.

Founded by sisters Suzanne and Eve Carnall in 2015, The Green Woman handmake 100% natural, organic, plastic-free and vegan skincare products from their base in Ludlow, Shropshire.  Since inception, they have been passionate about creating natural, chemical-free skincare alternatives and running their business in a way that has minimal impact on the environment. Their products come in reusable/recyclable materials and they run a jar refill scheme both directly with customers and through their network of UK stockists. 

Their award-winning Fit Pit Deodorant range is hugely popular and has been described by Which? as ‘effective and long-lasting’. They are also the makers of Green Cream natural moisturisers and have more exciting products on the way, all of which will have the guarantee of being 100% organic.

"My sister and I created Fit Pit natural deodorant 7 years ago in our kitchen because we couldn’t find one that worked for us. Today we are still a 100% family-owned business and are meticulous in our efforts to stick to our core values” -  Suzanne Carnall, Co-founder

There is a cacophony of information and noise in cosmetics about organic, but if you read the labels very few of the products actually contain more than one or two organic ingredients and very few are certified. The Green Woman has gone the extra mile in gaining this certification to show just how different they are as a company.  When you buy from The Green Woman you’ll feel not only reassured, but proud to support a business that has ethics at the forefront of all their decisions. The products you put on your skin are of the highest quality and 100% organic.

“Since we founded The Green Woman we've always known that we wanted everything we use to be organic - and it always has been. Achieving Soil Association certification is a powerful way to really demonstrate that to our customers. Every ingredient we buy is recorded and traced so that we can prove it is certified organic. Every cleaning product we use is environmentally friendly and every product is labelled clearly so that customers can see all the organic ingredients” - Eve Carnall, co-founder of the Green Woman

So why COSMOS Organic Certification? What sets it apart is that it’s so much more than just using organic ingredients - it’s assurance that The Green Woman say NO to:

  • Animal testing

  • GM ingredients

  • Controversial chemicals

  • Parabens and Phthalates

  • Synthetic colours, dyes and fragrances

And they say YES to:

  • Sustainably sourced organic ingredients

  • Using natural colours and fragrances from plants and flowers

  • Transparent manufacturing processes

  • Biodegradable ingredients

  • Minimal packaging with maximum recycled content

  • Protecting wildlife and biodiversity

With this accreditation to their name, we can expect many more exciting things from The Green Woman as they take on the world of natural skincare as a truly sustainable and ethical business.
