Here at Whistlefish we are immensely proud of our Cornish roots and our passion for the Duchy flows through all aspects of our business. From our art being hand framed in our Redruth workshop to our cards being printed by our friends at St Austell Print, we love to try to keep things as Cornish as possible and support the economy of our unique and wonderful county.
We work with a number of other Cornish brands and thought it would be great to create a collection of blogs that delve into these classic Cornish companies in more detail. Today we are talking skincare with our current competition partners, Organic Trevarno.
Originally established in 1998, Organic Trevarno was based on the stunning Trevarno country estate situated in the South of Cornwall. The estate was already home to the long established craft of traditional soap making, something that was not uncommon on privately owned estates throughout the years, and Trevarno's soaps proved to be very popular and successful. With the estate's stunning gardens proving a constant source of inspiration, Trevarno's honest and simple collection of products soon expanded from soaps into a variety of other skincare products.
Sadly in 2012 the estate gardens were sold and closed to the public. At this point Organic Trevarno re-located to another part of the original Trevarno estate, thereby maintaining their strong links with the area. They are currently based at Trevarno farm, where all of their formulations are designed and made by hand by their small but dedicated team.

The Organic Connection
Organic Trevarno are proud to be the first beauty company to meet The Organic Farmers & Growers strict standards to gain formal Organic Certification. This official recognition with Britain’s longest established organic certifying body guarantees the purity of the Organic Trevarno range and assures customers that products are both ethical and sustainable. With organic certification being the only way to ensure that products are as pure and natural as possible, Organic Trevarno work hard in sourcing the highest quality, socially just and ecologically responsible suppliers of ingredients for their skincare range.
This responsible sourcing is combined with a competitive pricing structure which means customers no longer need to sacrifice or compromise luxury, style or affordability in choosing the natural skincare option.
Quite simply Trevarno think it’s better for them, their families & the environment.
Over the last 10 years just think about how we have changed the way we live and spend – we recycle, use unleaded fuel & energy saving light bulbs, stopped using plastic bags, become more conscious of our individual “carbon footprint” and generally tried to be more “green”.
As people now care more about what is happening around them, we also think more about what we are consuming ourselves & taking into our bodies, and this has fuelled the growth in the organic movement.
Awareness of environmental and water pollution created by poisons & pesticides often used in farming has created a demand for organic food, now widely available & increasingly understood. By buying organic, Trevarno are also promoting more ecological farming practices that encourage the protection of the environment.
Trevarno believe now is the time to re-think what we are putting on our skin each day.
