As a green beauty advocate, my favourite time of the year is here – Soil Association’s Organic September.
Organic September is a month-long campaign to raise awareness of the many benefits of organic food and farming, which include:
- Supporting biodiversity and wildlife
- Helping to combat climate change
- The highest standards of animal welfare
- Reduced exposure to pesticides
- Food as it should be, and food you can trust
This year’s campaign’s key message is
“NATURE HAS THE ANSWER… and the answer is certified organic.”
As part of the month-long campaign, this week is Organic Beauty and Wellbeing Week (6-12 September). If you are new to organic beauty then choosing certified organic beauty and wellbeing products is one way to join the movement.
UK sales of organic beauty and wellbeing products have increased from £30.1m per year in 2011, to £120m per year in 2020. This is a 299 % increase in sales over 10 years. (Source: Soil Association 2021 Organic Beauty & Wellbeing Market Report).
When you buy a certified organic beauty product, you can be sure it contains:
- No GM (genetically modified) ingredients
- No controversial chemicals
- No parabens or phthalates
- No synthetic colours, dyes or fragrances
- No nanoparticles
- Certified sustainable palm oil ingredients
- Recycled and recyclable packaging where possible
- …And that no animal testing has been done in the making of the product
I’m really excited to share that award winning, organic and vegan skincare brand, Nourish London is celebrating its 10th Birthday this Organic September.
Founded in 2011 by Dr Pauline Hili, a renowned organic skincare expert with over 30 years experience, Nourish London is a British organic skincare company that offers scientifically developed, highly effective, certified organic, vegan and cruelty-free skincare powered by ingredients from nature that are kind to the skin and our planet.
Commenting on reaching their 10th anniversary, Dr Pauline Hili, says:
“It’s quite astonishing how much has changed in the organic and vegan formulation world in 10 years. Things that seemed impossible to achieve have become inevitable. The development and availability of more and more suitable ingredients and increasingly sophisticated formulations is great to see and probably explains why more and more consumers are looking for the Soil Association and the Vegan Trademark logo on the products they support.”
To mark their 10th Birthday, Nourish London have launched a Limited Edition Celebrating 10 years of Green Beauty Collection.
Celebrate our 10th Birthday with a limited edition collection of five of our best selling products of the decade..
