Our Story

How We’ve Begun: Our Story

Hello Everyone,

Hazelberry Skinfood is a Lithuanian/Jamaican family shop. My Lithuanian husband, Tomas and I, moved to Vilnius with our little daughter, Hazel, two years ago. As a Jamaican, living away from home, I wanted a way to connect with the people from our local community in Vilnius; but also other people from the surrounding European countries. We adore meeting people—we love their personal stories, the history of their countries, and we want to have a fair cultural exchange. Hazelberry Skinfood, named for Hazel, is a way to encourage a warm exchange of our passions and cultures.

Jamaicans are quite sociable; and, through our products, we wanted to also introduce the warmth, colour, fun and sun, of the Caribbean to the pretty, ecological and family-oriented city of Vilnius, and the neighbouring cities in Europe. So, we started the Hazelberry Skinfood shop which produces handmade-in-Vilnius bath and body products and accessories --our products combine the colour and warmth of the Caribbean, and the organic and ecological goodness of the incredibly skin-nourishing oils and other raw materials of Lithuania.

At our shop you can buy skin treatments like, wellness soaps,  body scrubs, body muds and pastes, body oils, skin detoxifying salts and masks, rejuvenating skin balms, and moisture-rich treatments for the skin.  You can also visit the Hazelberry Skinfood shop in Vilnius’ Old Town for a fun learning experience or a workshop on how to make your own skin remedy or perfume.

We look forward to meeting 

Warmly yours,

KL Menns
