There is a lot of assuming that goes on when people buy vegan products. But just because it's vegan, doesn't mean its healthy. Or safe. Or environmentally friendly. We give you the lowdown on what factors to consider when looking for safe and healthy vegan cosmetics and fragrance.
This year, we’re swapping unnecessary stuff for commitments - to ourselves and the planet - and making the magic of Christmas mindful again. We're pledging to prioritise presence over presents by spending more time with loved ones... and when it comes to gifting, we're committing to asking people what they really need, supporting local businesses, and investing in natural, ethically sourced presents where possible.
In the interest of keeping our commitment to you of 100% transparency, always, we want to help you choose a truly natural fragrance this Christmas - whether it’s for a loved one or for your own wish list. To help you look for the right information and ask the right questions, here's our simple guide on how to identify a 100% natural fragrance for your home or body, and not fall into the “clean” trap.
There’s no universal or official definition for "clean" when it comes to beauty, so any brand can make this claim without the need for certification.

Fragrance has an enormous impact on our health, so why aren’t brands more willing to disclose what goes into their formulas? Here, we talk about Trade Secret laws and why it’s so important consumers demand answers.
Despite environmental issues becoming increasingly more obvious, brands are talking the talk without walking the walk – especially when it comes to what we’re loading into our washing machine. Learn about the impact this is having on your health and the wellbeing of the world, and how to know which laundry products you should love or lose.
It's the catch-phrase of the year: clean.But what if clean is not as pure as you think? We explore what clean really means, and how to find perfume and cosmetics that are truly natural, healthy and safe.
Conscious living is active, deliberate and intentional. Conscious consuming is the same. It requires us to thinkabout the things we buy and why we buy them, to consider the things we use, and those we discard.
Have we become desensitised to cancer because of its prevalence (recent stats show almost 1 in 2 of us will have cancer before we hit 85 years of age), or is more a case of apathy because cancer has been casually linked to almost every conceivable thing in the modern world?
