Your Raw Ingredients - understand where they are from and how they are grown.

Getting the Paperwork Right - the records you need to keep for your products and your premises.

Making for Market - the claims you can make (and cannot) about your product's benefits.

You are Your Idea - explore how your business aligns with you, your values, your dreams, your ethics.

Plus, we look at your own relationship with nature.

Georgina has created a wonderful balance of practical business advice from her own experiences, grounded with an educated focus on environmental impacts. This has brought be back to 'the roots' of my focus for creating organic skincare formulations. Favourite quote "You can't manage what you don't measure". Thanks Georgina!


I found this course to be extremely helpful as it exactly fitted my ethics + values and how to set up a business so that it also reflected these.


It's so amazing how Georgina shares her experience with the background of her corporate work. Rules and regulations can be a jungle, Georgina was leading the way through this!

Georgina Langdale

Georgina Langdale is the founder of Archeus and the Centre for Nature Connection.

For over thirty years she has been working with the concept of nature inspired wellness of people, places and even economics. She has worked, studied and trained in end-of-life care, environmental science, herbalism, botany and nutrition and continually hones her skill as a coach, doula, reiki master, shamanic practitioner and ecotherapist. 

Georgina created the Beauty Business Nature online course in 2020 to help people build an eco-conscious business and now is running in-person workshops on building a business that works with nature, not against it.

Sharing experience to help you build your Business

In 2013 I launched my artisanal business Archeus and I set out to not only make natural skincare products, but to place nature at the heart of the business. I wanted to be able to give back to nature and to tread as lightly on this earth as I could.

Before establishing Archeus my professional experience included running a communications agency in London, working for the United Nations Environment Programme and for the Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew and I had been a judge for the St Andrews Prize for the Environment. Looking at how we can work with nature, rather than against her was in my veins. And for the past decade or so I had been at the cutting edge of people, organisations and institutions working as hard and as fast as they could to help us reduce our impacts on the environment.

So this workshop draws all that experience and knowledge together.

I don’t teach you HOW to formulate your products in this workshop – but I introduce concepts about sustainability, ecosystems and our impacts on them. I get you to connect deeply to your relationship with nature, and to understand your business’s relationship with the natural world too.

Plus I share information on some the practical aspects of setting up a natural skincare business from record keeping to the things you can (and cannot) say about your product benefits.

Just on the practical business stuff alone, I wish this resource had been there for me when I was starting out – it would have saved me so much time, and so much money. But to also have a course that can help lighten our footprint and be part of the change we want in this world – that is where the magic can really happen.
