Short on ingredients, but long on ethics and love, Akamuti use 100% organic, natural, botanical ingredients to make their award-winning products. Vegan-friendly and cruelty free, their products smell delicious and do exactly what they claim. Their Cuticle Moon Hand and Nail Butter won our Best Buy prize in last year’s Natural Beauty Awards, while their yummy Chocolate Marshmallow Face Mask scooped this year’s gold in the face mask category. We’re also huge fans of their calming and soothing Flower Power Aromatic Roll On - perfect for a fresh pick-me-up on long, hot and sticky days.
The healing and moisturising properties of honey and beeswax are harnessed in BeeInspired’s luxurious range of skin care products, all lovingly made a short buzz away from Hampton Court. Combined with plant and essential oils, the company have created creams, balms and soaps that nourish and restore. We adore their Calendula Cream with Honey and Beeswax – it’s gentle and petrochemical free and super-soothing, so perfect for both little skin and mums who’ve spent a few too many minutes in the sun. Those with sensitive skin will love the fragrance-free range, and their products make lovely presents – choose to have them gift-wrapped in a gorgeous Liberty bag with ribbon and gift tags for only £1.
The super-modern and stylish packaging of Conscious Skincare looks as good as the products feel. Rigorously organic, the freshly made products use only the highest quality ingredients, and are designed to be incredibly rich and effective. Handmade in Wales, and cruelty free, try tester sizes of their products before you splash out on full-sized versions. We’re fans of their super-slick, incredible smelling men’s products – their Fuzz Off Shave Gel has rightly scooped many awards. Their Lavender Flower Hydrolat is brilliant for summer nappy rash, and their Green Parent Beauty Award-winning Rosehip Seed Oil will reduce redness and nourish parched skin.
Stocking carefully selected products from Prima Spremitura made from organic extra virgin olive oil, and natural seaweed products made by the Cornish Seaweed Bath Company, Simply Naturale’s products smell like a summer holiday. Add shine back to sun-dried hair with their Prima Spremitura Restoring Hair Conditioner, which won silver in The Green Parent Beauty Awards Conditioner category, or calm cross skin with seaweed-based Organic Rejuvenation Facial Oil. Many of their products come in neat travel sizes – perfect for taking on a summer holiday – and each order comes with free samples. You’ll be hooked!
As the company name suggests, every product here is certified organic, cruelty free, and vegan or vegetarian. Your mind will be set at ease with their exacting standards, and your skin calmed – no matter how sensitive it is. Find old favourite brands such as Odylique or Dr Bronner here, or try new heroes such as Urtekram for Men. We love their Eco by Sonya Organic Face Tanner which will keep your sun-kissed face into Autumn, and their delicious Mandarin and Chamomile Hydrating mist to calm post-beach redness.
