Disciple - @disciplelondon
For those of you who, like the rest of us, have suffered more strain than usual these past couple of years - Disciple is here to help. The London-based brand was founded by Psychotherapist Charlotte Ferguson with the soul intention of treating stressed-out skin. The brand’s chic green glass jars are loaded with adaptogens to balance and restore; and prebiotics and linoleic acid that help tackle breakouts.
Aesop - @aesopskincare
Aesop are arguably the most shelfy-worthy beauty products of all time. If you haven’t owned the hand wash, you haven’t lived. But the Australian-born brand is more than just a pretty face, every product is carefully considered and made from high quality plant-based and lab-made ingredients. And Aseop has everything covered from hands, face, body, fragrance and hair - they smell amazing too.
Medik8 - @officialmedik8
Combining his pharmacology and biochemistry degrees with a new-found love of the planet, fair trade and natural ingredients - having spent five years backpacking around the world; Elliot Isaacs built Medik8 from a tiny lab at the back of his dad’s pharmacy. With a mantra of ‘beautiful skincare for life’ the products focus on achieving glowing youthful completions. Yes please.
Versed - @versed
Colourful packaging, clean ingredients and uncomplicated routines, when it comes to skincare Versed are, um…well-versed. Not only are they vegan and cruelty-free, but committed to reducing waste, lightening their carbon footprint and preserving the earth’s ecosystems. Hardworking skincare for the face includes cleansers, toners and an all-in-one hydrating milk. But our fave is the four-acid brightening solution, which does just that.
Nola Skinsentials @nolaskinsentials
Jane Ormon founded Nola Skinsentials when she found that, as an African American woman, her skin issues were not being catered for. What she required was a completely plant-based product for skin with melanin. Plus she believes in using real models in all campaigns to promote real skin. Products to love are the ultra hydrating moisturisers and serums; as well as the glowing toners and mists.
