With more and more beauty brands making a pledge to become ‘cleaner’, there’s no denying it is a positive move for both your skin and the environment. Naturally-derived ingredients such as vitamins, minerals and botanical extracts provide great benefits to your skin’s overall health and can be less irritating and harmful to sensitive skin than their synthetic counterparts. Other than consciously crafted formulas, many brands are also making a determined effort to use more sustainable packaging and manufacturing methods in a bid to become more eco-friendly. Here are five products from brands driving this movement…
With grapeseed and avocado oil to hydrate, lavender and eucalyptus to calm and chamomile and vitamins A and E to soften, this multi-tasking cleanser suits all skin types – even the most sensitive.
A vegan-friendly exfoliating toner that uses a natural blend of lactic acid, azelaic acid and willow bark to stimulate the skin’s natural resurfacing whilst also unclogging pores to help lines appear reduced and pores smaller.
Tackle wrinkles, dark spots and fine lines with this potent formula which harnesses the power of 16 super nutrients and bio-actives such as bakuchiol (hailed as nature’s equivalent of retinol), vitamins A, B and C and other essential antioxidants.
Formulated with 14 sources of natural hydration (such as chia seed water, tremella mushroom and marsh samphire) and 10 antioxidants, this lightweight moisturiser is easily absorbed leaving skin noticeably softer, plumper and more even.
Renowned for their no-nasties approach to skincare, this daily sunscreen balm with SPF30 contains sunflower shoot extract, grape juice, marula and raspberry seed oil to deliver moisture as well as protecting skin from UVA and UVB rays.
