Kiss The Moon was founded by Jo in 2014 when she realised that her career in advertising, with its wall-to-wall deadlines and constant jetlag, was having a huge impact on her health and wellbeing as a direct result of it affecting her ability to get a good night’s sleep. Driven by the need to get her own sleep back on track, Jo learned that the same part of our brain that controls sleep also manages our sense of smell and realised that aromatherapy held the key – Kiss The Moon was born.
Originally launching as a range of face and body oils, the brand has grown to include bath and body treats and home fragrance, all in Kiss The Moon’s four unique aromatherapy blends. This growth can be put down to Jo and her business partner Anna’s philosophy of ‘dreaming audaciously’ – making sure that they aren’t putting any limits on the brand and that they are aiming big and bold enough. It seems to be working – in their first five years, Kiss The Moon picked up over 30 awards, including the prestigious Best British Beauty Brands at the 2016 Pure Beauty Awards, and things don’t seem to be slowing down – in the 12 months to March 2020 the brand picked up a further 33 awards, including 7 for their Night Cream for Hands alone. They clearly know what they are doing!
Based in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside, Kiss The Moon is against all animal testing. Their products are 100% natural and made in the UK with the best ingredients they can get their hands on – no parabens, no harsh chemicals, no artificial perfumes, no compromise. For them, those things are vital. They are also the only company specialising in products that are specifically designed to help improve our night time wellness, both in terms of sleep and skin repair. In Jo’s words, “We come to life after dark and that’s where we want to focus because we feel people are not paying enough attention to sleep”.
