Dr Maria McGee qualified as a medical doctor from Manchester University in 1979. She gained a very broad experience in both medicine and surgery. Having retired and returned to her husband’s family farm in Co Donegal in 2001 she took up her life-long interest in crafts and began experimenting with soap-making. A natural spring located on the farm, dating back to 1850s, encouraged her to explore how it could be used within her soaps. With a family history of skin conditions and her medical background including experience in dermatology, she experimented with plant oils from around the world including Shea Butter and Neem Oil. This has resulted in her Marble Hill range of 100% natural, edible skin creams and two unique, detergent-free soaps and has now led to an ever expanding range of skincare and wellness products for all the family and the home.
