High street shopping for makeup, hair care or skincare can be tricky if you’re trying to be a responsible consumer.

The majority of companies featured in our mainstream stores commonly use harmful chemicals and continue to engage in animal testing these harmful concoctions. One of the best ways to elicit change is to stop purchasing in these arenas and instead research some lesser known brands who are really trying to do some good with their products! Here is a bit of research that we have done to create a list of UK-based skincare brands that are not frequently heard of but are definitely worth investing in.
