Our Guide to Shopping the SBTRCT Black Friday Deal Mindfully

3 min read

For many ethical businesses like us, particularly those founded on principles of sustainability and mindful consumption, Black Friday poses a conundrum.

Whilst we want to offer our customers the opportunity to benefit from a seasonal sale ahead of the gifting season, we don’t want to add to the frenzy and mindless consumption that Black Friday often creates.

So, this year, we’ll be offering all our customers a simple 25% off across our entire range for an extended duration.

The offer will kick-off on the 14th of November and conclude on the 4th of December - giving you plenty of time to shop the deal with intention.

That means no panicked purchases and no push from us on a particular product. Whether you’re shopping for yourself, or for a loved one, checkout gift the guide below designed to help you make the right choice!

(Remember, we’re here for any questions you may have, whether it is choosing the right skincare for yourself, or for a loved one - just drop us a message over on Instagram!)
