Living Sea Therapy / Skincare
Living Sea Therapy, Helston, Cornwall
Living Sea Therapy wanted Blue Scribe to interview its bosses, test its brand and retell its complicated story, full of science, sustainability and mermaids.
The brand — sustainable, Cornish skincare
Living Sea Therapy (LST) is a skincare brand drawing on Cornwall’s geology and the sustainable products of its sister businesses, Cornish Sea Salt Co. and Cornish Seaweed Co. They worked in partnership with marine biologists, environmentalists and spa therapists to develop 12 beauty products for bath, body and hands & feet.
Challenge — testing the brand, retelling stories
The challenge for the marketing team at LST was to test the brand’s authenticity before launch and to create journalist content around the geology, science and ingredients. They wanted a journalist in their corner to pre-empt the toughest questions from the nation’s press pack. Louise Moye, marketing manager for parent company, Provenance Brands, said: “You just don’t know what a journalist will ask when a new product launches. This made us question things we may never have considered.”
Delivery — interviews, research, writing
After eight interviews and some deep research, I created 12 blogs, three web pages and some ingredient descriptions, all under one, tight deadline. I wrote about sea salt, seaweed, Cornish geology, aromatherapy, art and science.
A word from the author
From my side, working with these girls was a dream. Organised, specific, driven, they knew exactly what they wanted. LST’s multiple stories and messages were indeed complex. And I discovered my sweet spot during this project: ‘interview-based writing for complex brands with big stories’. Thanks Lou.
