The Kerfoot Group are great exhibitionists!

You would be excused for thinking that you are looking at a photograph of a very chic bar in the city – it’s actually a pic of The Kerfoot Group exhibition stand which was rolled out at the very busy In Cosmetics exhibition in Paris earlier this year, where a record number of visitors (nearly 10,000!) attended the 652 exhibitors ‘ stands.

It’s Incredible just how many oils we produce!

From Russia with Love

Greetings from the Speciality Sales Team, writing from Domodedovo Airport, Russia.

The Kerfoot Commercial teams have certainly been busy with recent exhibitions in Warsaw, Frankfurt, Moscow and not forgetting Coventry.

The Smelling Zone

The Kerfoot Group team thought they would get in touch with their senses and learn more about Kerfoot Speciality Oils. We converted one of the Chill-Out areas towards the back of the office at The Olive House into The Smelling Zone!

The tale of the Black Soap in half a coconut

I have been referred to in the last week as the ‘rookie’ of the business and although I am not the latest addition to The Kerfoot Group team one of my colleagues still sees me as the ‘junior’.

The Kerfoot Speciality Oils Division footloose and fancy free en Paris!

Kerfoot’s Heated IBC’s

A perfect solution to temperature control for your precious oils!

Cold mornings are something we all hate, I’m sure you’ll agree?  Oil is no different when it feels the chill – becoming viscous & difficult to manage!

When oils are stored in cold environments the natural waxes present in the oil begin to join together resulting in a cloudy, viscous appearance. The oil will typically whiten but don’t panic… it does not indicate

50 Shades of Shea…..

Well that got your attention – The title was inspired by a recent slip of the tongue during a light hearted office chat on the Sales desk. We really do always have oils, waxes & butters on our mind…
