Loved the concept.

I really wanted to love this product. It has so much going for it, it’s well thought out, eco friendly and simplifies a skincare routine. Sadly though, it’s not for me. I do have sensitive dehydrated skin and thought I would give it a good try. Alas, the fragrance was too much. I would suggest an unfragranced version would be wonderful, but it’s too drying for my skin. Ah…..it also broke me out in spots, but that could be because it was so drying or the heavy fragrance, or both. On the plus side, the moisturising balm leaves the most beautiful finish on the skin. I wish the product well. I’m sold on the concept and it will be great for people with more ‘normal’ skin, which to be fair, it does state it is for. Just not for sensitive skin like mine. Sorry.

Great Discovery!

Having tried other solid cleansers in the past and finding them drying, I was wary about trying another but I'm so glad I did! The cleanser is very gentle and not at all drying. It left my skin feeling soft and fresh. As for the moisturising balm, I wasn't too sure what to expect but I found it lovely to use. Went into the skin easily and not greasy. I have temperamental skin that reacts to almost everything and I can honestly say that this is the first time I've tried new skincare products that have actually improved my skin. It's been such a lovely set to use and helped to calm redness and clear my complexion. The fact that the products are plastic free, cruelty free and vegan is such a bonus! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for gentle skincare that's kind to the planet.

Our range of bespoke accessories have been designed using sustainable materials with an emphasis on improving the performance and longevity of our skincare products.

Minimalist and understated, they not only enhance your solid skincare experience but look beautiful within the bathroom space.

We like to think so. We believe that our industry faces three key environmental challenges. Our solid state formulations allows us to tackle these challenges head on and without compromise.

We are zero plastic - our industry is responsible for over 120 billion units of plastic packaging each year. We recognise that we can’t recycle our way out of this problem and take a zero plastic approach to our skincare.

Our formulations are less that 0.5% water - up to 70% of traditional creams and lotions can be water despite 844 million people globally lacking access to clean, safe water. We never add water to our formulations.

Our skincare is palm oil free - over 70% of personal care products contain palm oil derived ingredients and this over reliance is strongly linked to deforestation and destruction of wildlife habitats and ecosystems. We choose to avoid palm oil altogether.

Don't just take our word for it


Thank you for giving me the best skin condition I have ever experienced.....simple to use, ethically sound and such great benefits to my skin.

Having bought the ‘travel/sample size’, as I was unsure as to what this product would be like, after a couple of nights I was ordering the full size!


I am absolutely in love with these products, never has my beauty routine been so simple! The fact that these are all plastic, chemical & cruelty free, plus environmentally safe, as well as being amazing for your skin is something I once thought was a dream. If you haven't tried these products yet, you need to!

I was sceptical about this brand but I thought I would give the discovery pack a go. So glad I did. Together the two products leave my skin clean and hydrated. I can’t recommend this skin care range enough. Love the simplicity!
