From Field to Face | Natural Beauty from the Farm

Sussex-based The Linseed Farm is launching a capsule range of skin care products, which showcase its principal ingredient farm fresh English linseed.

The new range comprises two face and body creams; Natural Linseed Cream Unscented and Natural Linseed Cream Lavender and Chamomile as well as a Natural Linseed Soap Bar.  The range is supremely hydrating and antibacterial to boot. The products are unisex and suitable for all ages (with the exception of children under 3) and all skin types.

These innovative new products will be launched at Olympia Beauty 29 – 30 September, which is autumn’s biggest event for beauty professionals. The range promises glowing, fresh skin with the potential to address a range of skin issues such as pigmentation and fine lines.

Cleopatra was famed for her flawless beauty and reputed to bathe in asses’ milk. The reason it kept her skin looking so peachy-perfect was because of its high Omega 3 content. Modern-day beauties can get the same result from the benefits of linseed oil, which is naturally high in Omega 3 too.

Natural Linseed Cream Unscented and Natural Linseed Cream Lavender and Chamomile.

Rich in ALA and Omega 3, both Natural Linseed Creams are powerfully hydrating, soothing, nourishing and calming.  They represent gentle care for face and body. Lavender and Chamomile offer an extra layer of evocative, comforting scent reminiscent of nature, while the unscented version ensures there’s something for everyone.  The Creams will be packaged in airless pumps and retail at £35.

Natural Linseed Soap Bar

Gentle, hydrating and cleansing this 100% natural soap is a dream to use for all areas of the face and body. The Soap will retail at £6.90.  Packaged in tissue with a paper label it’s planet-friendly and ideal for anyone looking to reduce plastic.

Linseed has many different health benefits being one of the richest sources of omega 3 poly-unsaturated fatty acids, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and containing over 50% omega 3. Also, being plant based, it’s a great vegetarian and vegan skin ingredient. Here, it’s been put to exceedingly good use to extend the benefits of linseed oil to the outside as well as the inside!

Farmer and producer Durwin Banks commented, “I always believed our linseed oil would make a marvellous skin cream as it is so deeply hydrating. In fact, I’ve been experimenting with different versions over the years and this is the culmination of all our research and experience. At The Linseed Farm, we all believe passionately in our products and their health benefits.”

The range will be available to buy from the website: and selected retailers.

More products are planned for 2020 including an innovative ‘bar shampoo’, which will further reduce the amount of plastic packaging.


Note to Editors:

Siblings Durwin Banks and Wendy Dorkings run The Linseed Farm as a family partnership in Barns Green near Horsham, West Sussex.  They are actively involved in the day to day running of the farm and love working together as a team producing the finest cold-pressed linseed oil and ground linseed for their customers across the UK and beyond.

They come from a long tradition of farmers and started growing and pressing Linseed (flax seed) in the year 2000.  The siblings believe they are the only farm growing, pressing or milling their seed and selling it direct to the public. Their Unique Selling Point is freshness. And, customers have told them that no other oil they have tried comes close.

The new range is also antimicrobial and antifungal.
