Why We Rate It: Circumference is well loved in the beauty industry because it gives back to the planet, while still feeling elevated and luxurious. Behind a chic, minimalist aesthetic, it combines powerhouse ingredients with guilt-free processes to nourish and protect your complexion. Inside the products you’ll find plant-derived actives which have been chosen for maximum absorption and speedy results. A fan favourite is the Botanical Face Oil for its silky texture and ability to swiftly hydrate with fatty acids, while the Botanical Refining Toner gets rid of sluggish cells thanks to exfoliating antioxidants. Unlike some toners, it’s never abrasive, thanks to its lack of alcohol and inclusion of skin-plumping omegas. Everything in the range is an investment, but a worthy one given the results the products yield, and the gentle approach they take – all skin types can use without fear of irritation. Eco Credentials: *Circumference uses only natural, plant-based materials from native growing regions. *It minimises waste – from ingredients through to packaging. *All ingredients are sourced consciously with no risk of overharvesting. *Packaging only use recyclable materials such as glass and paper. *Everything is printed with soy-based inks and dyes.

Why We Rate It: Previously only available in the USA, EvolveTogether has finally dropped in the UK. Its popular range – loved by the likes of J-Lo, Rihanna and Bella Hadid – is full of daily essentials that perform with low-impact on the environment. Our favourite product is the natural deodorant. Transparent, it goes on clear with no pasty residue, while the formula itself is gentler than others on the market. Made without aluminium, talc or baking soda, it uses plant-based ingredients that nourish, hydrate and soften skin in this delicate area, while absorbing excess moisture. Look out for the dissolvable hand soap, which is activated by water, as well as the hydrating hand cream that uses vitamins to soften and soothe. We expect to see more launching from this covetable range soon. Eco Credentials: *All packaging is recyclable or biodegradable. *One tree is planted with every online purchase. *Everything is cruelty free. *FSC certified, you can guarantee EvolveTogether is made with forest-based materials for better economic benefits.

Why We Rate It: DedCool is vegan, genderless and sustainably minded. Everything is fully recyclable, while the scents themselves are made with natural ingredients. Traditionally, lots of perfumes have taken their key ingredients from animals, but DedCool uses essential oils and safe synthetics, with zero phthalates (known for causing allergies) or BHT (a chemical preservative). There’s not even any water in these fragrances, because water is ‘simply filler’. Not only does this help in terms of sustainability, it ensures your scent actually lingers on the skin. For a smell that’s clean, fresh and uplifting, look to the brand’s bestseller, Milk. Eco Credentials: *All glass bottles and outer packaging can be recycled. *Samples come in glass vials instead of plastic throwaways. *The fragrances are biodegradable. *Cruelty free and vegan.
