So it's one thing having a bathroom cabinet filled with shelfie-worthy skincare, or a beauty bag bursting with make-up must-haves in gorgeous, glossy packaging, but how important is it for your products to have principles? Do we want what we buy to have an ethical heartbeat too?
Well, we say yes. Embracing beauty brands with a strong moral backbone will see you showing love for the planet as well as your face and body, and what’s not great about that? It’s cool to be kind, after all.
And to prove our point that compassion really does rule, enter Dr Botanicals. Here’s a natural skincare brand that’s forever flexing its kindness muscles to show that it cares about the world, and we can’t get enough of the gorgeous products because of it.
Considering the chemically-loaded nasties that can sly their way into skincare via the small print, a range that guarantees zero chemicals is a beauty no-brainer. Dr Botanicals offers a cleaner, greener approach to skincare with luxury, apothecary products created only from oils, plants and natural ingredients. Whether you pick the Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask for an overnight skin treat, or try the Coconut Oil Rejuvenating Exfoliating Bar in May’s Pink Parcel, you can trust that what you’re putting on your face and body is paraben and preservative free.
We’re firm believers of both style and substance; just because something’s sustainable or recyclable, doesn’t mean that it can’t look cool on your bathroom shelf. For fellow fans of simple, pared-back packaging, the Dr Botanicals range is created from cardboard, amber glass and bamboo that reflects the brand’s passion for natural, plant-based ingredients.
V is for vegan
Veganism isn’t just a beauty industry buzzword. For millennials switching to an animal-free way of life, finding a trusted vegan-friendly range is essential. Dr Botanicals can be relied on to deliver effective skincare solutions that are 100% cruelty-free and created without any animal ingredients or animal by-products.
Best of botanicals
We know that a skincare product can quickly switch from being a try-it-once wonder to a firm skincare staple, thanks to its dreamy ingredients. If you’ve ever fallen in love with a moisturiser because it contains sumptuous, nourishing shea butter or game-changing anti-ageing oils, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about. The Dr Botanicals range is packed with natural, active ingredients and uses the pure properties of plants, flowers, leaves and herbs to look after skin – doing everything from gently cleansing and deeply hydrating, to treating acne and soothing irritation. This clever combo of innovation and environmental consideration results in super-kind formulations that can bring the skin back into balance.
