When considering sustainable skincare, an often overlooked aspect is the provenance and impact of the ingredients themselves.
We choose botanical ingredients and prioritise those that are either waste by-products of other clean companies, obtained via fermentation processes or lab-grown like micro-algae.
100% Plastic-Free Skincare
Our packaging is 100% plastic-free. You won’t find a small plastic cap, insert, label, lid or dropper. When we say no plastic, we mean it. Our aluminium containers are reusable and endlessly recyclable.
Vegan Friendly & Cruelty-Free
All our botanical ingredients are vegan-friendly and we are proud to be approved as cruelty-free under the Leaping Bunny Programme, the best global cruelty-free assurance.
100% Petroleum-free Skincare
Petroleum is not renewable, therefore not sustainable. This includes mineral oil, PEGs (polyethylene glycols), SLS/SLES (sodium lauryl sulfate / sodium laureth sulfate) and parabens. Thousands of plant-derived cosmetic ingredients exist, and there is absolutely no good reason to incorporate petroleum into our skincare routines.
We use either alternatives to palm-oil or Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certified derivatives that have not been farmed through deforestation. At present, all our products are palm-free, with the exception of our Fruit AHAs Exfoliating Mask which contains a very small percentage of a RSPO certified palm derivative.

Whenever possible or available, we prioritise organic ingredients.
One Product, One Tree
As a way to give back and help reduce the amount of carbon out there, we have partnered with One Tree Planted. For every product we sell, we will plant one tree with them. This tangible act will have lasting effect beyond your product and hopefully beyond all of us!
We pledge to always tell it like it is. No exaggerations, distorted information, convenient omissions, concealed facts, baffling marketing gibberish or superstition.
Our London studio was designed and built in-house and all our products are made there: we don’t use external manufacturers. It’s an FSC-certified timber-frame unit complete with green roof to catch all rain water. The electricity used is 100% certified renewable and UK generated, adding to the goal of conserving resources whenever possible.
