Sustainability Initiatives

NB is formulator and founder led. These formulas have been laboriously poured over, sometimes to over 60 versions, to get the exact perfect effectiveness, texture, scent and after-feel. You can feel the romance in the reviews. There are no repackaged off-the-shelf products here (a common practice in the skincare industry)... where is the love in that!

All our formulas are naturally-derived, made with ECO-CERT ingredients and of course cruelty free and vegan!

We have always been cruelty-free and vegan, but we are working through the long and costly process of becoming officially certified with the corresponding bodies, show we can show those stamps on our packages and provide greater trust and transparency to our customers.

We are a certified Living Wage Employer with the Living Wage Foundation.

All products are manufactured and shipped from our own professional lab in Leyton, east London, wrapped and boxed beautifully and plastic free. 

Even our wholesale trade orders go out with either compostable void fill, or reused packing and bubble wrap we have received from other shipments. Everything we possibly can gets recycled. We use a carbon neutral offset option for our trade orders.

Our main ingredients suppliers are a lovely family-run UK-based distributer, who source their ingredients direct from their farms around the UK, Europe an across the world.
The fact of the matter is that the UK climate cannot grow everything we need for skincare, but the carbon load on the global trade of ingredients sure weighs a bit heavy on us. So until we can make A-grade botanical skincare from potatoes and strawberries... 

We are in the process of becoming a Carbon-Neutral company! Which we are very excited about. More to come about this soon.

Our packaging is all recyclable. To recycle the pumps and pipettes you will need to separate the pieces.

We use glass where possible but it doesn’t make sense for all our products, so we’re always looking for ways to make the plastic we do use more eco. In the future the plastic used in our range will decrease. •

We are working towards a zero-waste refill scheme so we encourage customers to keep their empty bottles for now.

We also support a number of charities and causes with profits from our website sales, including providing crowd-sourced loans for entrepreneurs in developing nations with Lend With Care, monthly donations to Refugee Council and the RSPCA here in the UK, and Soi Dog Foundation in Thailand.
