Looking to discover a new natural brand? The founders of online marketplace Bare & Beyond reveal their favourite picks of the moment
Bare & Beyond is a celebration of our cultural roots, and is inspired by the traditional markets of Africa, where goods are raw, handmade and 100 percent natural. We partner with niche businesses that provide natural skincare, haircare and eco-stationery, many of whom have won numerous awards. We’re always finding new and interesting brands to feature online.
To help you discover some of these brands, we’ve rounded up five of our favourite picks of the moment – so whether you’re looking for natural skincare or eco-friendly products, we’ve got you covered.
This vegan skincare brand provides a range of luxurious face and body oils all in recyclable glass and cardboard packaging. The Rose & Tamanu Scars & Stretchmark Body Oil won The Beauty Shortlist Mama & Baby Best Stretchmark Product Award in 2016 and 2017 and the organic Camellia & Safflower Hot Cloth Cleansing Oil is a highly-decorated favourite too.
Set up by Scottish aromatherapist, holistic massage therapist and life coach Gail Bryden, JustBe Botanicals sells a wide range of beauty products. The team have won a selection of accolades for their eye make-up remover and their cleansing balm.
Created by a cancer survivor, Etieno (which means ‘good gift’ in the Efik language spoken in parts of South Eastern NIgeria) focuses on luxurious, natural skincare. We love the renew skin balm – it’s a real multi-tasker that can be used to repair nails and smooth cracked heels and is also a brilliant emergency lip balm, make-up remover and body butter.
The team behind this handmade beauty brand creates affordable natural skincare products using beeswax and honey from their own hives. They are ardent supporters of British bees and make a donation from every sale to Friends of the Honey Bee.
