About GAIA

Inspired by Gaia, the ancient Greek goddess known as mother nature, GAIA Skincare products are handmade in Britain using traditional production methods.

Founded by Diane Nettleton in 2016, the vision was clear, to develop a brand which was built on friendships, connections, experiences, open hearts and consideration for others. A natural product and wellness brand, that would bring a higher level of wellness to the spa industry. 

The roots of GAIA Skincare go back to Greek mythology and their natural approach to medicine. Gaia, also known as Mother Nature, was the first Greek goddess and considered the very soul of the earth. Mother Nature is always working to maintain harmony, wholeness, and balance within the environment and GAIA Skincare connects deeply with these energies.  

The skincare range is made from natural ingredients, with certified organic plant extracts, many of which are fair trade and sourced from small farms and producers. Our formulations have been created using traditional artisan methods, blending the finest ingredients, plant actives, and essential oils, to produce a range of products with intention and integrity. Each ingredient has been thoughtfully selected for its beneficial properties for the body and mind, how it will make you feel and what the ingredient will achieve.
