Baylis and Harding always seem to pop up around those special times of the year; birthdays, Christmas, or when I visit my posh aunt with the porcelain bathroom.
While the brand is the epitome of handwashing and hosting luxury, many product sellers and users are unaware of how Baylis & Harding combine classic luxury with a forward-thinking and caring mentality.
I’m going to show you why Baylis & Harding is worthy of a spot on your shelves, explain their philosophy and show you some of their best products.
Plus, you’ll improve your brand and product knowledge, which makes selling the products a lot easier!
The company was founded in 1970 as Midlands Cosmetic Sales by David Slater and Marcia Simmons. Initially, it operated as a cosmetics business under the infamous Spaghetti Junction in Birmingham.
When the current owners Adrian Slater and Tania Fossey took over the business, they rebranded as Baylis & Harding and developed it into the successful business it is today. The Baylis & Harding name pays homage to the current owners’ grandparents, which adds a historical connection to the brand.
When you buy from another business, you want to feel connected to their values, regardless of whether you stock 50 or 500 brands.
That could be anything from getting good cheaply to trusting them because of their heritage. Connection breeds connection, and the more you connect to your customers, the more likely they are to return.
When you look at a Baylis and Harding product, you’d be surprised to know how cheap it is (you can get a bottle of handwash from as little as £2). The company always look at what you should pay for a product, and then work around that price, as opposed to working the price into a product. Their philosophy is ‘why should you pay more for luxury when luxury is affordable?’.
Many businesses are changing due to new consumer demands for more environmentally-friendly products, and Baylis and Harding is a company that has its ears and mind open to these suggestions. The company has initiatives for sustainable luxury, animal cruelty, sustainable packaging and high-quality ingredients.
If you embrace these principles; Baylis & Harding will add a little bit of sustainable luxury to your business.
Baylis & Harding packaging is created with their two principles in mind; they want to create packaging that has a luxury feel without compromising the environment. They adopt principles from the Plastic Pact 2018, which means they:
The company also announced its commitment to a more sustainable future with the Baylis & Harding Recycling Scheme in partnership with TerraCycle. Every year pumps, caps and tubes end up in landfill and are never recycled, which is a problem.
TerraCycle is a specialist company that recycle these product parts, as government recycling schemes often don’t have the equipment to do it. By partnering with TerraCycle, the linear recycling scheme is replaced by a circular one.
Baylis & Harding customers can either send their waste to TerraCycle, or they can drop it off at the nearest recycling centre.
Baylis & Harding are committed to protecting the welfare of animals and support the work of PETA. All their company policies support:
With the increasing demand for vegan-friendly products, Baylis & Harding offer ranges that are suitable for vegans, except for the Oatmeal, Milk & Honey handwash which contains extracts of milk and honey. They also successfully registered their fabulous Beauticology range with the Vegan Society who display the logo on their packaging.
Customers are more aware of the ingredients that come in their toiletries and gift sets, so Baylis and Harding commit to creating paraben-free products to protect individuals and avoid microplastics to protect the environment.
