To celebrate February and the month of love, we have written our guide to four beauty and skincare brands that we not only love, but who are also showing some love too and giving back through their donations and foundations.
Made For Life Organics
Made For Life is a Cornish-based brand that believes you should nurture your body both inside and out. Their cruelty-free balms and scrubs leave your skin feeling restored, super soft and nourished. Not only was Made For Life Organics the first UK company to achieve 100% organic certification across its entire collection from the Soil Association, but the Made For Life Foundation supports those diagnosed with, and recovering from, cancer. They organise days filled with holistic complementary treatments, organic makeovers, art therapy, relaxation, mindfulness and meditation and nutritional guidance. The foundation also offers an accredited 3 day Cancer Touch Therapy training course so that therapists in spas can offer holistic therapies.
As Clockface Beauty says, they were born from love – their first product was created by a mother for her daughter. And they continue this love with their natural, vegan skincare that is science led to transform your skin. Importantly, every product is waterless so that each bottle is only packed with nutrient rich ingredients to give you wonderfully healthy skin. Clockface Beauty believes in the protection of our oceans which is why they work alongside the UK’s leading marine charity, The Marine Conservation, and for every order placed they make a donation to help keep the oceans healthy.
Jennifer Young’s Defiant Beauty skincare products are designed for cancer patients and the skin conditions associated with cancer such as itchy or dry skin. The fabulous products are 100% natural and organic and suitable for those who have been through chemotherapy, surgery or radiotherapy. As part of their work they have collaborated with many charities including Cancer Research UK, Mummy’s Star and Yes to Life to help promote the charities and the support they offer.
Skincare brand, Nuddy, is committed to their sustainability mission – providing the community with plastic free bathroom essentials. Their soaps for one, are great, they’re: plastic free, vegan, use sustainably sourced palm oil and have no silicone, paraben or phthalates which damage both your skin and are known to damage coral reefs. Now, they are aiming to completely offset their carbon emissions through planting trees, investing in clean, renewable energy and helping landscapes to recover from deforestation.
