Organic Beauty Brands To Add To Your Routine Now

You might recognise UpCircle from its stint on Dragon’s Den back in 2018 (where it received offers from three dragons), but these days it’s more common to see the B Corp brand lining the shelves of your local shop. UpCircle is known primarily for giving salvaged ingredients a new lease of life in skincare – think used coffee grounds from local cafes, leftover fruit waters from the juicing industry and chamomile stems saved from the tea industry – but it’s also worth noting that (as part of its promise) all products are certified organic, dermatologically approved, 100 percent natural, vegan, sustainable and cruelty-free.


Neal's Yard Remedies

Neal’s Yard Remedies

Any product from Neal’s Yard Remedies feels like an indulgent treat – and knowing that much of the ingredients used are organic makes it feel all the more guilt-free. Whether it’s serums, creams or body oils, the brand is committed to creating its products without genetically modified ingredients. Instead, it opts for all things natural and organic, with 92 percent of its physically processed agricultural ingredients certified organic via the COSMOS standard by weight.

B Corp-certified lifestyle brand Bamford has spent the last few years making the switch to certified organic sources where possible, basing its signature skincare formulations on natural ingredients. Working with the Soil Association, Bamford has pledged that all new products in its Bath & Body collection will aim to meet COSMOS standards to become certified organic.

Wild Beauty

Founded back in 2020 by Lord Newborough, owner of Rhug Estate, Wild Beauty is an organic skincare brand inspired by the unspoilt nature of the North Wales countryside. The beauty of Rhug is that it can oversee much of its supply chain firsthand, with ingredients sourced from its estate and locally to create non-genetically modified products that are certified organic by the Soil Association. In our interview with Lord Newborough, he said: ‘We have been organic at Rhug for over 20 years and it is in our DNA and across everything we do… We use ingredients from local sources and use as many organic and wild foraged ingredients as we can that we have sourced from the estate, so that our products are as ‘local’ as possible.’

Tata Harper

Skincare brand Tata Harper was founded on a 1,200 acre organic farm in Vermont, back in 2010. The brand, which is known for its organic skincare lines, makes its products in-house at its farm and beauty lab in Vermont with no outsourced manufacturing. This has enabled the brand to oversee the majority of the process itself, with the result being a line of products that are cruelty, artificial fragrance and GM-free.

Juice Beauty

US-born brand Juice Beauty was founded with a Californian lifestyle in mind, with an emphasis on luxury organic formulations that could perform better than conventional beauty products. The brand is a big supporter of organic farming, limited synthetic pesticides and fertilisers (the brand has estimated that over the last decade it has avoided three tonnes of pesticides by utilising organic ingredients), creating high antioxidant levels in its cosmetics.
