Discover UK Made Natural and Organic Skin Care

Natural Skincare is one area in which the UK is a hotbed of creativity and innovation, from Jersey to Northern Ireland, Somerset to the Isle of Lewis. More people are discovering the benefits of using naturally sourced ingredients – good for your skin and good for our environment.

The 11 exciting brands below all have one thing in common: they have been scouring their local ecosystems for effective natural ingredients such as seaweed, lavender oil and rosehips, making the most of the UK’s wonderful natural flora. Locally sourcing these kinds of raw materials is far more sustainable and less damaging to the environment than traditional mass-produced synthetic skincare products.

Really natural skincare is just as important for what’s not in it. No synthetic chemicals, parabens or emulsifiers, which are typically added for aesthetic, textural or artificial fragrance purposes, and can irritate the skin. Instead, the plant, fruit and herbal based ingredients used in natural skincare can be metabolised more easily by the skin, and also more naturally exfoliate and nourish. Without animal testing too!
