We select products with ethics and wellness in mind, and we prioritise featuring products in Little-Known Box that are natural, organic, vegan and/or cruelty free. As consumers, we are all becoming more aware of what we’re putting on our bodies (as well as in) and we want you to discover some of the brands that offer safer, kinder, ethical cosmetics. We’re especially passionate about promoting homegrown, British, handmade and ‘small batch’ brands. Some of these upcoming and emerging brands are hidden gems that you won’t easily find on the high street (many sell their products at independent gift fairs, online or in carefully selected boutiques). We’ve also even discovered a few ethical brands that go one step further and donate a percentage of their sales to charity, including PHB Ethical Beauty!
PHB Ethical Beauty lives up to it’s name, and it has so many good points, you’d feel guilty for not supporting their work and investing in a few of their beautifully designed and super effective products. PHB is a family run business, their products are handmade with love in the UK, not tested on animals, halal certified, palm oil free, paraben free and 100% vegan. What’s more, they are created using safe, natural and organic ingredients. PHB donate 20% of profits to charities in the UK and around the world, to help improve the lives of people, children and animals. Find our more about PHB’s charity ‘The OneLove Foundation’ here. This makes PHB one of our all-time favourite brands, they tick every single ethical box and we need more companies in the world with their ethos of ‘people over profit’!
The young founder of PHB Ethical Beauty is Rose Brown, a vegan who wanted people to enjoy truly ethical beauty products. Rose knew from an early age that harmful ingredients commonly found in beauty products can irritate skin and have long term effects on health. We think she’s succeeded in creating a fantastic ethical range in the short time since PHB’s launch in 2012.
The award winning brand has over 200 products in it’s range (there’s something for absolutely everyone!) and includes skin care, hair care, cosmetics, makeup brushes, bath & body and men’s products. Our June subscribers have received a travel size Anti-Aging serum, we selected this product because it’s suitable for all skin types, perfect to take away on holiday (small enough to carry in your hand luggage liquids) and makes a great introduction to the PHB brand! This handcrafted serum has a deep penetrating blend of oils, to provide the lower layers of skin with essential omegas, antioxidants and nutrients to help fight the signs of ageing. The Organic Sea Buckthorn oil and Rose help to smooth wrinkles, reduce dark spots, rejuvenate the skin and promote a radiant complexion.
To use your serum; Use before applying your moisturiser, and massage into your skin in small circles until the product is completely absorbed.
“PHB organic Anti-aging serum is a delicious smelling, lightweight yet deeply penetrating gel formula that makes skin feel younger and healthier. Rose and Sea Buckthorn are known for their soothing, healing and rejuvenating properties and the formulation is derived from organic aloe vera leaf. This product ticks all the boxes for me, it’s made in the UK, organic, vegan and halal, cruelty free, great for any skin type and it’s a perfect base for makeup. What more could you ask for?”
