Terre Verdi is committed to bringing you ethically-made products, lovingly crafted from organic ingredients. They reflect the respect and care for our own families, our concern for the environment, and the integrity with which we aim to treat our customers and business partners alike. We use organic ingredients because we believe that nature should be respected and not tampered with. We want to make products that heal your skin and soothe your soul and hope you will enjoy using them as much as we enjoy sharing them with you.
Terre Verdi is one of the earliest UK based companies to manufacture COSMOS Organic products, and the first to manufacture a water based face moisturiser to gain COSMOS Organic certification by Soil Association, our NeroliPom Moisturiser.
Most of our products are certified organic by COSMOS, ranging from 84-100% organic. All of the products are 100% natural. COSMOS is an international standard developed at the European and international level by BDIH (Germany), COSMEBIO & ECOCERT (France), ICEA (Italy) and SOIL ASSOCIATION (UK), so approved by each individual standard.
All our products are Vegan and we are not using any animal derived ingredients.
“Terre Verdi believes that beauty and household products should be cruelty free. We are proud to be Leaping Bunny approved. A global programme, Leaping Bunny requires cruelty free standards over and above legal requirements.
All of our own brand cosmetic and personal care products are approved under the Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny programme, the internationally recognisable gold standard for cruelty free products. We adhere to a fixed cut-off date policy and proactively monitor our suppliers to ensure that our products continue to adhere to the Leaping Bunny criteria. Our supplier monitoring system is also independently audited.
For more information about Cruelty Free International, Leaping Bunny and Leaping Bunny criteria, please visit www.crueltyfreeinternational.org”
The Terre Verdi products do not contain any synthetic ingredients either, such as parabens, fragrances/perfumes, or colourings.
We are pioneers in the use of a special biophotonic glass packaging for organic certified products in the UK. The glass is designed to protect the products from the complete spectrum of visible light exposure, with the exception of violet and infra red light, and ensures that they stay fresher and more potent for longer.
We are committed to sourcing the highest quality ingredients for superior botanical formulations. The use of 100% botanical ingredients goes hand-in-hand with the holistic skincare approach that we take. We believe that body, mind, and spirit are interconnected, therefore, when formulating our products, we consider all three as a whole.
We are proud to be a IFA (International Federation of Aromatherapists) Corporate Member.
We were co-winners of the new business Blue Patch award in 2016, in recognition of our high sustainability and ethical standards. Blue Patch is a sustainable marketplace that promotes green, eco, ethical, and organic companies making products in UK.
For Alessandra de Gregorio, founding Terre Verdi represents a powerful way to return to and honour her roots, as well as to share her values with the rest of the world. Growing up in Sicily, Alessandra developed a close affinity with nature and its formidable bounty, learning to love and respect everything it offers us. After living a fast-paced life in both New York and London, Alessandra decided to slow down and relish the joy of bringing up her four children and caring for her family. In the process of doing so, she rediscovered her love of all things natural, and redoubled her homegrown respect for nature and the environment. For her beauty needs, Alessandra turned once again to her native Sicily for inspiration. Using the essential oils from her childhood home, and from elsewhere in the world where nature was equally generous, she set about creating the products you find on this site in order to fight the effects of stress, ageing and yes, motherhood. Her own family uses the products on this site. How about that for a vote of confidence?
Seeing that the essential oils helped her skin retain its elasticity and firmness even while pregnant with twins, Alessandra decided this is a gift she must share with a world that is, all too often, full of chemically-laced concoctions whose claims of helping us are dubious at best. Upon reading a few labels more closely, Alessandra saw that most products are loaded with chemicals whose main role is to prolong shelf-life – not help our skin and our body.
Encouraged from early feedback from friends and family, Alessandra turned her homegrown beauty products into a business. Terre Verdi was born.
The Terre Verdi logo represents the de Gregorio family crest and embodies Alessandra’s commitment to bring to you her closely cherished family values of love and respect for nature, integrity and a desire to share the best that her region can offer with the rest of the world.

Alessandra was a finalist of the Blue Patch Female Business Leader Award in 2017, also for her contribution to the LivingEthically Directory in the UK.
