Our Founders’ Story
A Journey of Transformation
Back in 1997 when we got married in the Dominican Republic. When our weddings photos were being taken on the beach it soon became apparent that it was a bit too windy for a true Scotsman wearing a kilt!!!
Mama Nature is the natural skin care division of SinuSoothe Ltd which was formed in the UK in 2009 by James and Jacqueline Shearer after they both suffered terribly from sinusitis.
THE EUREKA MOMENT
Jacqueline had suffered from sinusitis for over twenty years and James, due to significant stress in the workplace, also developed it.
They had been to various doctors and ENT specialists and had tried everything under the sun to try and rid themselves of this dreadful condition but to no avail.
As James got out of the car a cold wind hit him straight in the face and numbed his pain for the first time in almost three years.
At that moment he knew if he was to rid himself and his wife of this horrible medical condition he would have to take matters into his own hands.
Holding a Science Degree and being naturally creative, James, with the help of his wife, set about formulating a natural alternative to the pharmaceutical nasal sprays.
They not only cured their own sinusitis, giving them a new lease on life, but family and friends were also using it with great success.
THE RECESSION WAS HITTING HARD
The recession was hitting hard and like a lot of families they were really struggling to pay their bills. They were even contemplating selling the family home that they had worked so hard for.
The stress of this was starting to take its toll on James’ health and they desperately needed additional income.
After much deliberation and many sleepless nights they decided to set up a business and share the success of their ground-breaking nasal spray to the general public.
At that time banks were very nervous of lending to startup businesses and they were told they would have to fund it themselves. The situation was quite bleak, but James and Jacqueline were determined. They managed to scrape together enough money to set up their business.
SUCCESS IN THE STATES
Their natural nasal spray SinuSoothe has proved a huge success, particularly in the United States.
It is getting rave reviews, even being called a ‘Godsend’ and is being prescribed by doctors in the United States for all types of sinus conditions such as sinusitis, sinus allergies, rhinitis and nasal spray addiction.
INNOVATIVE SKIN CARE PRODUCTS
James and Jacqueline are innovators, a fact that is even more evident in their natural skin care range, Mama Nature. Together with their team of skin care experts and research and development team they have created a wide range of unique natural skin care products that are transforming people’s lives for the better.
Despite facing stiff competition from the more well known, purely profit driven, synthetic, mass produced skin care brands that are available on the High Street, Mama Nature is flourishing – proving that you can have a successful business and still operate with heart.
