Sought after Dartmoor beauty therapist, Tara Leader has launched a brand new organic and natural skincare range.
Tara, of Dartmoor salon Tara’s Treatments began work on the moor as a beauty therapist and reflexologist in 2003.
After launching her own business, Tara’s Treatments in 2014, Leader has seen phenomenal success, and her salon has been booked solid since last summer. Always an entrepreneurial spirit, when looking to develop her business, Leader found herself drawn back to her first love in the beauty sphere: skincare.
She says: “I am very aware of skin sensitivity as both my children suffered from eczema when they were little. I started researching the ingredients in baby care products and discovered that if I avoided sulphates, their flare-ups would disappear. This is how my passion for skincare originally began.”
Much hard work and testing later, the Dartmoor Skincare Company was born. Tara worked with family and friends to create the five products currently available from the brand: a cleanser, toner, moisturiser, hand cream and body cream.
The products are free from sulphates, parabens, synthetic colours and fragrances and are also both suitable for vegans and cruelty-free. All made here in Devon, Tara says the products are inspired by the wild natural beauty of Dartmoor.
Tara works on the basis that although our skin is tough, we should nourish it with enriching organic ingredients instead of the harsh chemicals seen in many skincare brands.

The products are high quality and feel great to use. We particularly like the body cream and hand cream. The body cream glides on smoothly, and leaves skin feeling soft and supple for hours afterward.
Really taking the time to moisturise your whole body after a bath or shower is one of the most luxurious – and easy – treats you can give yourself. The hand cream also became a quick favourite.
Unlike many formulas, it’s nice and thick, which leaves hands feeling hydrated all day, rather than the quick fix so many products offer that has you reaching for it again only hours after its last use. I got into the habit of putting it on last in my evening skincare routine so the cream could do its work overnight.
Research shows that our skin absorbs 60% of the products that we use, so a clean, nourishing ingredients list is an absolute must.
The effective, easy to use Dartmoor Skincare Company products are a worthy edition to any natural skincare routine.
