Mon Naturals - a balmy success story!
Summer 2018 saw the launch of a new product by business start-up, Mon Naturals. Eliawen traditional balm has been developed from a 200 year old family recipe used to treat skin conditions, including burns and wounds for generations, using ingredients found locally in North Wales.
Initial scoping discussions about potential product applications began in 2017 between BEACON Business Development Manager, Selwyn Owen, and Ianto Jones, CEO of Mon Naturals. Work to investigate the anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties of the natural remedy was then undertaken at the BioComposites Centre, Bangor University, with the aid of SMART Partnership funding from the Welsh Government. The company received further assistance in the form of product testing, package design and product registration. Now the healing cream has been trademarked and brought to market, and the company has taken on additional staff to help fulfil anticipated orders.
