Natural, vegan skin care stocking fillers and beauty brands have been on the rise over the past couple of years with more and more people choosing to purchase from brands that naturally source their ingredients and do not test on animals.
These brands are also very environmentally conscious and create their products and packaging sustainably and ensure that the materials that they use are environmentally friendly and can be recycled or reused.
Here, we’ve rounded up some of the best natural beauty and skincare products the UK has to offer – not to mention they are also all under £10, so make fantastic Christmas stocking fillers!
They are also a sound choice for those wanting a unique Secret Santa or Christmas gifts for someone who loves quality skin care products.
NOODSkin is a Berkshire-based company that make and package their products by hand in their studio in Caversham.
They began their business from their kitchen table creating natural soaps and now they have four different soap collections and a whole range of other natural, sustainable products, including bamboo bathroom accessories, lip balms, moisturiser and konjac sponges.
Rest assured, each product is vegan, made from the highest quality natural ingredients and is sustainable.
One of their best-sellers is their shower steamers. Pop the steamer in your shower, somewhere where it won’t get directly hit by water, and allow it to do its thing.
Each steamer is packed full of essential oils which will be released whilst you shower.
You’ll leave feeling like you’ve just had a spa treatment!
