Our Journey

Fikkerts Limited is a family business, established in 1903. It was originally known as the Chemists and Allied Trades Packing company and specialised in herbal remedies made from botanical ingredients and essential oils, for example; Cherry Slumber Tea, Neoclenz Herbal Laxative and Nutona. They were also very well known for their aptly named, BarkOff (a cough mixture), Thermo-Rub (for aches and pains) and Inferno, a warming balm.


Everard Carter was the original founder of the business which was based in Frizinghall just outside Bradford, Yorkshire. (Pictured here with wife Janet and daughter Marjorie.)


Everard’s nephew, Norman Carter, started to help his uncle develop the business, taking over the reins when his uncle retired and re-naming the company Carter brothers. (Norman Carter)


Following the establishment of free health care in England, there was a decline in the demand for herbal medicines. Carter brothers had to look for new opportunities to grow their business. (Original premises in Frizinghall)


Norman’s daughter Joan joined the business, along with her Dutch husband, Dirk Fikkert and his second son-in-law Barry Taylor. (Norman, Dirk and Barry).


The company began to diversify into bath, body and skin care products. When Norman retired, Dirk Fikkert, became MD and the business was eventually renamed Fikkerts Limited. (The first Fruits of Nature Range with hand-glued labels)

Present day

Today, the business is in the safe hands of Richard Fikkert (Everard's great nephew) and his wife, Julia. (their two daughters learning their craft for a future generation of Fikkerts customers)

Customers say...

I think I have found my favourite hand cream manufacturers, I have a small obsession and buy new hand cream everywhere I go, I found their kitchen garden range at an historical house and haven’t found better anywhere. I’ve now tried several hand creams from Fikkerts and my favourite is the Botanical- its swiftly absorbed, no greasy residue, smells amazing and leaves my hands so soft. I highly recommend."
