Naissance

Dave Perez
Senior Portfolio Executive

“Plants and people are at the heart of everything we do. This fantastic location will not only be a source of some of our natural ingredients but also a place for you to get hands-on and experience what makes Naissance different.”

Jem Skelding, Managing Director and Founder of Naissance

Naissance, the ethically-sourced vegan healthy living company, is expanding with a new mid Wales HQ after a seven-figure loan from the Development Bank of Wales.

The company, who employs over 100 people at their manufacturing and warehouse space in Neath, has purchased a new corporate headquarters in Powys. Marketing, strategy and other management functions will be based at their new corporate offices at Glansevern Hall in Montgomeryshire. The availability of capital through the Development Bank secured Wales as the corporate home of Naissance.

Glansevern Hall is a Grade II Regency Greek Revival style house that was built between 1801 and 1806.

With sustainability being a priority for Naissance, the new HQ will see goods grown onsite used in their café and the creation of products, as well as establishing sustainable energy to provide power onsite. Customers will be able to visit Glansevern to experience Naissance and learn about the sustainable sourcing and manufacturing process of products and ingredients.

Founded in 2005, the company creates cruelty-free and fair trade essential oils, carrier oils, soaps, salts and clays, as well as massage products. Underpinning their do-good, feel-good values, Naissance uses only natural ingredients and concentrate on sourcing responsibly with Fairtrade and other cooperatives across the globe.

Funding for the deal came from the Wales Flexible Investment Fund.
