Inspired by Coraline
Father’s first organic skincare shop, Coraline Skincare and Giftware, opens in Topsham, Devon, on 1st November 2021
The inspiration behind the shop
Local owner and brand founder Kevin’s four-year-old daughter Coraline was diagnosed at birth with Down’s syndrome and two holes in her heart. Coraline’s sensitive skin reacted badly to many products which claimed to be natural and organic. Kevin, and his wife Liz, decided to create their own range of the purest organic skincare to help Coraline to have happy skin.
Kevin Troy, 44, who moved to Topsham in August 2021 from Surrey says,
“I worked as a chef in high-end restaurants and hotels around the world for over fifteen years and my approach and philosophy in ingredient-led simplicity underpins everything we do at Coraline Skincare.”
“I knew that if our products could help Coraline, they could help others too, and the feedback has been incredible since we launched online last year – with countless people suffering from sensitive skin saying it’s the first product they’ve tried that’s actually worked.”
“Coraline has taught us the meaning of pure and unfiltered love, and we apply this same love to all our products, which I handcraft at the shop in small batches using all-natural and organic ingredients.”
Over the past four years of tireless development using his impressive chef’s knowledge of natural ingredients, Kevin has perfected the range.
