About Sansaar

Thank you for visiting Sansaar’s website. Sansaar means “World” in Nepalese and my aim is to bring you every day basics that won’t damage your World.

I’ve enjoyed spending time researching and sourcing eco-friendly products to bring to you. I’ve also tried to source my products as ethically as possible. This means sourcing as many products from UK based businesses that also manufacture their products in the UK. For products sourced from abroad, I’ve tried to make sure that the environmental impact they have is minimal.

In addition to this I’m passionate about sourcing SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate), SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulphate) and Paraben free health and beauty products.

My aim is to reduce packaging and single use plastic waste as much as possible and to create zero waste in the future.

My hope for this shop is to help you to easily make eco-friendly consumer choices.

About me

I’ve not always been concerned about what effects my choices have on the environment or what I put on my skin.

My first degree was Aeronautical Engineering and I love flying, however, I now know that flying has the biggest environmental impact compared to other modes of public transport.

After my first degree I studied Swedish Massage and Sports and Remedial Massage, and this is where my awareness about the benefits of using good quality, paraben, SLS and SLES free skincare products came from.

A number of years ago it was very difficult for me to easily find these products. This is when the seed of my business idea was planted.

I wanted to source skincare products, free from “harsh” ingredients and bring them into one place making it easy for others to find. I also wanted to raise awareness of the negative effects parabens, SLS and SLES can have on the body. Unfortunately, I was not in a position to start a shop back then and decided to go back to University to study for a Masters in Energy Systems and the Environment. The aim was to use my first degree to help the environment.

During my time working as a sustainability consultant I made friends with many environmentally aware people, who fuelled me with ideas and inspiration.
It is only now, a few years after my original idea, that I’m in a position to be able to set up my shop and bring you natural skincare products and eco-friendly products.

I really hope that you enjoy using my products and if you have ideas for other products that you’d like to see more readily available, please let me know.
