The KELSEY Farm lies in the very heart of Kent, the Garden of England. I am the fourth generation of family farmers at Kelsey, my son will be the fifth. Each generation has chosen to listen to their heart, to listen to the land and to develop the Kelsey family farm by enhancing nature with crops of their choice. I chose berries. Raspberries particularly are packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Through cutting-edge scientific research, we have discovered and developed the benefits of our raspberries for the outside – our skin. Working with hand-picked experts, we have formulated an exclusive ‘raspberry first’ skincare range.

We care for our environment because we know how precious it is. Hence our commitments to sustainability and upcycling.
We upcycle our seeds, fruit pulp and leaves. We source everything as locally and as conscientiously as possible. Our packaging is recyclable and all of our cardboard comes from an FSC certified supplier. We also opted for nitrile bulbs for our pipettes as an alternative to the more commonly used PVC, which has a negative environmental profile.
We are committed to changing the way that skincare is produced for the better.
The History of the Raspberry
Two Greek legends recount tales of the gods. The first tells of Zeus’ nursemaid who pricked her finger when picking snow-white berries, thus staining them red for eternity. The second has the Olympian gods searching for berries on Mount Ida, which thereby gave the Latin name Rubus Idaeus: ”the bramble bush of Ida”. More prosaically, there is archaeological proof that raspberries were eaten by cave dwellers and have been part of our diet ever since.
Raspberries, due to their beautifully bite-sized sweetness have long been one of the most popular fruits on the dining room table. They are rich in fibre, contain more vitamin C than oranges and can actually lower cholesterol levels. Raspberries really are a superfruit.
Today, we herald in a new cosmetic chapter thanks to the magic of the raspberry.
From our customers
“I love the Full Bloom concentrate! Even from first use my skin looked plumped up and super dewy! I like to use it in the morning as it is really pretty under makeup. It’s also great before night cream and when I use it at bed time I wake up really rested-looking"@reallyree
“Full Bloom Plumping Concentrate is my favourite, not only is it the perfect base under make-up - giving a hydrated and smooth finish, but it has reduced the rosacea on my cheeks and healed my dry irritated skin around my eyes! It sinks in so quickly and beautifully. It really is the best thing I’ve found for my skin.”Customer
"I'm obsessed with Kelsey Concentrates. Each Concentrate has scientifically proven potent actives that have a wonderful skin enhancing, nurturing and protective effect on the skin. I find the Concentrates give skin an instant boost upon application, and impressively improve the appearance, tone and clarity when used long term. The fine textures absorb rapidly and the beautiful packaging and gentle scent also make it a luxurious treat to use. I have been using it on my clients ahead of red carpet events, as well as part of my personal regime, and I can't recommend it enough."@nathalieeleni_beauty
"I love the smell of Full Bloom and the feel on my skin is amazing. It immediately feels softer and plumper and stays soft all day long. The texture of my skin looks better after just a few days of using it."
"I use Morn to Eve in the morning, Full Bloom in the afternoon before I put my "work makeup" on as I work a late shift and the Three Moons before bed. When I first received them and was reading up about them, I must admit I was most excited about the Full Bloom as I liked the idea of it plumping my skin up. They are all lovely and feel nice on the skin. After trying them for a few weeks I absolutely love the Morn to Eve, that is my firm favourite of all three. It seems to wake my skin up in the morning and give it a sort of glow, I will certainly be buying this one for sure."Competition winner
