A Family Business 


Pure Lakes was founded by Sandra and Iain Blackburn and has been producing award-winning, natural skincare since 2006. 

In search of a product that worked for sensitive skin Sandra, a trained chemist, combined her knowledge of science with pure, plant-based ingredients to formulate her own skincare products.

Claire & Gareth McKeever were among Pure Lakes's earliest customers and bought the business in 2016.

Previously an Actress and Salsa Dance Teacher Claire, together with her husband Gareth and young family, wanted to return home to the Lake District.

Claire says, " It is a huge privilege for Gareth & I to be able to live & raise our family in such a beautiful part of England, making something we are so passionate about. Pure Lakes Skincare is a family business and, by making everything ourselves, we are able to create well-paid, year-round jobs and support our local economy.”

A manufacturing business

Pure Lakes Skincare is proud to be a manufacturing business. Everything is made by hand in our workshop in the beautiful village of Far Sawrey, located on the western side of Windermere within the UNESCO World Heritage Lake District National Park.

Far Sawrey is a ‘honeypot’ village made famous by Hill Top, the home of Beatrix Potter. Creating well paid jobs in this rural area is incredibly important, not least with scarce affordable housing. We still have a fantastic local village school in Hawkshead, a doctor’s surgery, a chemist and a village shop but these all depend on a strong local economy. 

 As well as creating premium natural & organic skincare we want to play our part in supporting a vibrant local community.
