Developing an organic, cruelty-free beauty product from scratch is no easy feat as local businesswoman and animal lover Gemma Garrett has found out.

The former beauty queen has navigated a minefield of red tape and the challenges of lockdown to create her first own-brand, ethically sourced, environmentally friendly body cream.

The launch of her luxury lotion this week was not exactly the champagne celebration she has planned, thanks to Covid-19 restrictions, but Gemma (39) is still thrilled to finally see over two years of hard work come to fruition.
