Our ethics

Biodegradable

Raw materials and plant-based ingredients that are fully biodegradable and will not persist in the environment after the product's end-of-life are at the core of our formulating values. 

Vegan

Our entire product range is vegan and we operate a fully vegan manufacturing facility.

Cruelty-free

Our products are created and manufactured in the United Kingdom. We do not sell our products in any country that requires animal testing. We are not owned by a parent company. 

We believe that beauty should be cruelty free. We are proud to be Leaping Bunny approved. A global programme, Leaping Bunny requires cruelty free standards over and above legal requirements. All of our products are approved under the Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny programme, the internationally recognisable gold standard for cruelty free products. We adhere to a fixed cut-off date policy and proactively monitor our suppliers to ensure that our products continue to adhere to the Leaping Bunny criteria. Our supplier monitoring system is also independently audited.

Organic

Where possible, we always use organic ingredients to help ensure the local ecology and health of people and animals are not put at risk from pesticides and chemical fertilisers. We identify the organic ingredients used in our products with an asterisk on the 'Ingredients' tab of every product page.

Sustainable, Green Chemistry

The emulsifiers and preservatives used in our products are approved by Ecocert and COSMOS - the leading global standards for natural and organic cosmetics. Additionally, our emulsifiers (where relevant) are RSPO-certified.

We operate a green manufacturing facility, which includes only using biodegradable cleaning materials and renewable energy sources. We have also set targets to reduce our annual energy usage. 

We Plant Trees

We are committed to reducing our impact and promoting biodiversity. We donate towards the planting of trees with every online order. These funds support the non-profit Eden Reforestation Projects as they continue to reforest the island of Madagascar. 

Packaging

It's not just about what's inside the bottle. We are fully committed to reducing our waste footprint as much as possible. All our products are housed in glass bottles, and we offer the option for returning customers to order without plastic pumps and pipettes.

Your products arrive in an easily recyclable or reusable cardboard box. To help protect the bottles, we use fully biodegradable and compostable packing peanuts that are made from starch. 

Supply Chain

We consciously maintain a small roster of trusted ingredient and packaging suppliers, each of whom we stringently vet to ensure their certifications and ethics are aligned with our expectations.

Our packaging supplier is ISO4001 accredited, which means they have targets to mitigate any adverse effects on the environment resulting from the business operation. Our organic ingredient supplier is certified by the Soil Association and is the UK's largest producer of cold-pressed oils. 

Community

We want the benefits of our products to extend beyond skincare. We've elected to support Richard House Children's Hospice in East London. See more about our longstanding relationship with Richard House, and why we've donated all profits from hand sanitiser sales to the hospice.
