Her daughter Sandra suffered multiple skin allergies along with eczema, and although Charlotte tried to find skin care products made with natural ingredients that would be gentle on her daughter’s skin, but it turns out most cosmetics found on the high street contained chemicals – they only needed to have less than 1% of natural or organic ingredients to be labelled ‘natural’.
