Bill Carr & Angela Carr

Bill Carr believes that the rich agricultural Howe o’ the Mearns, Lewis Grassic Gibbon country, is the ideal location for a company which produces high quality personal care products. Family-run Body & Face St Cyrus Ltd was established in the 1980s in a former bakery in the Aberdeenshire village of St Cyrus but now operates in the town of Laurencekirk on the edge of the scenic Grampian mountains. “We have access to beautiful quality water locally and we also use spring water from the Pannanich wells near Ballater.” In the early ‘90s Bill led a management buy out to save the jobs and skills of the staff. Our company produces its own retail range of cruelty-free products from cleansers and conditioners to pampering products. Our core business is manufacturing products which are as natural as possible for niche and specialist private label customers. These customers supply the UK and global markets, selling our products all over Europe and the world.

Expertly crafted and cruelty free personal care


Our core values are central to how we run our business. They reflect the need to promote a positive company internal atmosphere and external image and provision of first-rate customer service.
