Disclaimer: Information we Post

The Severn Weigh make no representations or warranties in relation to this website or the information and materials provided on this website. 

It must be understood that any informative content that we publish on our website, should not be relied upon as any definitive factual account. Whilst we have sought hard to provide accurate, up to date information, we are aware that our articles, ingredient descriptions, and any other written content, will inevitably be incomplete, will not always represent every perspective and may inadvertently contain some errors. 

Our articles are not written in a scholarly, referenced fashion. We prefer to consider our posts as a collage of information and ideas which will be partial, perhaps controversial, but written to challenge and stimulate thinking. We, therefore, wholeheartedly encourage our visitors to investigate our musings, ideas and topics further. 

We do not accept liability for loss or damage caused by inaccurate information. If you think that you may have identified some incorrect or misleading information, please do send us an email and we will investigate the issue: hello@severnweigh.co.uk

We therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by any visitor to our Site, or by anyone who may become informed by its contents.

Furthermore, our content is never written with the intention to offer any medical advice or to recommend how visitors might treat various skin conditions for themselves. 

For our visitors' interest, we have offered a brief synopsis of the various protective / active qualities commonly attributed to each of our ingredients, to help outline their function in our formulas. The active qualities of the Essential Oils, highlighted in our summaries, are NOT intended to identify treatment or home remedies for common skin conditions. 

We suggest that visitors who have an interest in discovering more about essential oils, herbal, natural and cosmetic ingredients read widely from a diverse source. We have included some ideas for further reading and exploration of other sites in our references, following our articles. We cannot accept any liability, however, for any misinformation or incorrect advice perhaps given on any of these linked or suggested sites. 

* Nothing on this website constitutes, or is meant to constitute, advice of any kind. For all skin and other medical conditions, please consult your doctor or for alternative treatments, seek a qualified and experienced naturopath / aromatherapist.

Disclaimer: Information about our Nooma Organics' Skincare Products

Legally in the UK, anyone manufacturing a product to sell, specifically with a purpose to offer a remedy to heal a medical (skin / body) condition must have a medical license (private practitioners working with individual clients may have slightly different regulations). The line between cosmetics and medications can be very fuzzy: an emollient balm enriched with certain actives may help to soothe a condition such as eczema - but if it is advertised as a cure or a remedy for this skin condition - it will need laboratory testing and a medical license.

Nooma Organics’ skincare products are essentially artisan ‘cosmetics’and whilst they all do contain active ingredients, which can soothe, soften and protect the condition of the skin - and many are suitable for use on skin prone to certain skin conditions - they are not intended to be sold as ‘medical treatments’ for these conditions. 

* For all skin and other medical conditions, please consult your doctor or for alternative treatments, seek a qualified and experienced naturopath / aromatherapist.
