Plastic is a hot-topic this year. Following the ban on micro-beads, the government has made it clear that reducing plastic pollution in our oceans is at the forefront of their agenda when it comes to environmental policy. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that beauty brands have adapted accordingly. With many now introducing organic, plant-based, ethically-sourced products to their skincare range and make-up lines.
But with many ingredients in these supposedly ‘natural’ products seemingly foreign or overly-scientific for the average customer, can we really trust that they’ll nurture our skin as promised? Maybe it’s time we incorporated some plant-based goodness into our skincare routine – with ingredients that we know will feed our skin and make it look flawless!
Leading the way in organic plant-based cosmetics, Leafology is an inspirational one-woman company based in Oxford-shire. Inspired by an interest in natural, pure beauty, Ella, the company’s founder, incorporates her knowledge of the health-promoting properties of herbs and plants, and uses them to produce handmade cosmetic products that soothe and nurture skin and hair.
And with a list of ingredients that you can understand and recognise (everything Ella uses in her products is plant-based), you feel in safe hands when it comes to caring for your body with Leafology’s organic products.
A kind of transparency I think many of us can agree is a rare experience when it comes to skincare. I for one have no idea about half of the ‘stuff’ put into most of my creams and serums! Nonetheless, it is a transparency that we all deserve, and Leafology, I am thankful to say, is here to provide it.
And if you haven’t fallen in love with the idea of Ella’s products just yet, then you’re bound to love the idea of her ‘Not-So-Secret-Oh-So-British’ secret ingredient; tea. Ella has quite an obsession with the stuff – as do we all! But for good reason. “Tea is a nutritional powerhouse”, she comments, “packed full of vitamins, fatty acids, omega oils, and nourishing micro-nutrients”. Meaning that the ‘Camellia Seed Oil’ incorporated in each of her creams, serums, oils and exfoliators will not only hydrate, but nourish and heal the skin too. An added bonus for those of us who are prone to blemishes, or who have existing facial scars (so, basically everyone!).
