Mitchell and Peach Amenities Now Distributed Exclusively By Gilchrist & Soames® 

Indianapolis, November 11, 2013 - Gilchrist & Soames® and Mitchell and Peach® today announced their exclusive partnership to bring the prestigious Mitchell and Peach range to the hospitality market. Mitchell and Peach amenity formulas use the finest natural ingredients derived from the family farm and precious botanical extracts from around the world. Combined with the Mitchell and Peach signature fragrance, the body and hair care collection provides guests with an uplifting, sensuous and satisfyingly complex experience.

A leading bath and body brand, Mitchell and Peach is found in the finest retailers – from Harvey Nichols and Fortnum & Mason, to boutique perfumeries across the world. 

“We are extremely pleased to be associated with the Mitchell and Peach brand as they are the epitome of luxury and English heritage,” said Emma Johnstone, vice president of EMEA sales and marketing, Gilchrist & Soames. “The fragrance is created from the lavender grown on their family farm and you don’t find many brands with that level of commitment to their products and sustainability of small family farms.”

The fragrance’s top note invigorates with ylang-ylang petals and Palmarosa. At its heart, roses mingle with pure English lavender, while the base note is warm and sensuous with sweet vanilla and violet. The oils used in the fragrance have been aged for a minimum of nine months to ensure a full aroma.

"We strive for perfection at every stage of our production process—from growing the plants in the field to blending the final formulations—and we wanted to find an amenities provider with a similar ethos,” said Jod Mitchell, founder of Mitchell and Peach. “I found Gilchrist & Soames to be the best—the best reputation, the best capability and the best customer service. I think we're going to be a great team."

The four Mitchell and Peach liquid products--Shampoo, Conditioner, Shower Gel and Body Cream--are available in a 1.7 fl. oz. (50 ml) size. The collection also features a 1 .4 oz. (40 g) pleat wrap soap.

The collection features the highest-quality formulations and contains no parabens, phthalates, petrol-derived ingredients, mineral oil, urea, DEA, TEA or propylene glycol. The collection also features pure, hand blended essential oils from the Mitchell estate. The Mitchell and Peach collection embraces cruelty-free development and manufacturing practices, ensuring that the products are never tested on animals, nor contain animal-derived ingredients.

About Mitchell and Peach
The Mitchells have been farming the same land in Kent, England, for five generations. The family has cultivated everything from strawberries and apples to hops and cobnuts. From 1923 to 1972, the Mitchells ran a thriving market stand on the south-west corner of old Covent Garden in London. In 2009 the family celebrated 100 years at Foxbury Farm, which remains the centre of the estate to this day.

Continuing in the family’s tradition, Ian and Jod Mitchell planted fine lavender on the estate. The quality of the essences distilled from the plantation inspired them to create a bath and body range of uncompromising quality. Mitchell and Peach was born.
