Our People



Raised on a farm in the American Midwest, Britt is a marketeer and recipe builder. Inspired by the countless petrolatum-based ointments and creams used to treat her children’s stubborn and severe eczema, she formulated POWER BALM from her kitchen using raw materials from West Africa and the magic of RED PALM. After hundreds of trials, tests and expert opinions, POWER BALM was born, wrapped in our bright and bubbly African print box.



Marion was born in Hong Kong and educated in England. This set up her lifelong love of travel and the Arts. Marion trained at the prestigious fashion school La Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne for two years before becoming a designer in the studio of Gerard Pipard at Nina Ricci. Following a move to London at 21, she started her second career, training as an actor at Webber Douglas Academy then continuing successfully both in Australia and Los Angeles for the next decade, both as an actor and a news presenter.  Marion then met and married her husband Robert raising their two children whilst designing and building, with him, a succession of unusual and creative properties culminating in their present chateau in the south of France, which they run as a business. Marion’s creative spirit now leads her in a new direction and interest in The Kind Planet Company, and she is very excited about being part of this environmentally aware and creative team.
