We know our beauty routines and habits can have a huge impact on the environment – from the plastic packaging filling landfills, to cosmetic chemicals washing down the drain and disrupting marine life. This is one of the reasons why sustainability is important to us and why we partner with brands not only for their luxurious wellbeing and beauty rituals, but also for their green and kind-to-nature ethos. We are proud to work with GROUND Wellbeing, a self-care brand devoted to sustaining our planet; ila - a cruelty-free, vegetarian brand who use only natural ingredients to craft their products in the Cotswolds, the 'Queen of Green', Tata Harper, whose products are 100% natural and organic and L'Atelier Green Paris, London's first-ever plant-based and breathable nail bar.
GROUND Wellbeing is a self-care brand, taking pride in the quality, ethics and environmental qualities of their aromatherapy oils. All of their packaging, design and print has been sourced and produced in Ireland. Their collection of balms and oils are 100% natural with an average of 50% of the ingredients being organic and sourced locally as much as possible, ensuring organic quality and lower carbon footprint of their production. The wellbeing brand has also partnered with BMW to deliver their products with 100% electric cars, designed with the environment in mind. From the use of exclusively renewable energy sources during production, to the use of natural materials and recyclates, every detail within the product lifecycle is considered.
A favourite amongst celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow, Tata Harper set up her eponymous beauty brand to develop natural products that were up to her impeccable standards of efficacy, quality and purity, for herself and for women like her who refuse to risk their health for beauty. Sustainability lies at the core of Tata Harper's greater mission, producing 100% natural and organic skincare by hand at her farm in Vermont. Her self-proclaimed green beauty engineers design powerful natural skincare that delivers real results without a drop of synthetic chemicals. In order to continuously enhance their sustainability practices, it has become a part of their nature to think with a planet-first mindset every day, from sourcing maximal performance ingredients, to manufacturing, packaging and shipping.
Celebrating the best in British beauty, founder Denise Leicester's vision was to create a range of highly potent and sacred products, channelling the raw remedial power of nature, using our most ancient and pure sources of energy – plants, flowers and herbs - and proving that results-driven products and spa treatments can go hand-in-hand with the highest standards of natural and ethical integrity. Creating ila’s products takes time, care and commitment and absolutely no short cuts are taken. What makes the brand different is that the products are created in a meditative environment by hand in the Cotswolds, using unsurpassed natural ingredients and minimal processing. Ila’s approach is grounded in a deep respect for humanity, for the earth and for nature at its purest.
L'Atelier Green Paris
Founded by sisters Hamida and Yasmine, L'Atelier Green Paris is driven by a passion for beauty and commitment to natural cosmetics. The duo was inspired to create the nail care brand after witnessing the detrimental effects of conventional nail polishes and harsh chemical formulas found in semi-permanent products. They felt compelled to bridge the gap between trendy beauty products and eco-consciousness, leading to the birth of L'Atelier Green. Their nail polish is manufactured in Paris in an approved eco-friendly laboratory and their bottles and caps are manufactured in Venice by a family run company using 100% recycled glass. Petrochemicals, sourced solvents and plasticizers are replaced by natural, renewable resources from vegetal biomass like sugarcane, cassava, cotton and corn. L’Atelier Green Paris is vegan certified and their formulas are enriched with organic plant extracts and pure organic oils.
