Hands up – who finds it downright irritating when you can’t work out if the ingredients in a beauty product are suitable for your skin type (or even understand the ingredients!?) For everyone who has their hands raised high right now – you’ll be pleased to know that there are some skincare and beauty brands that get it, and at Safety in Beauty we like discovering them and presenting them to you.
This month we met Evolve Organic Beauty: They totally understand that no two skins are the same, in a society constantly fuelled by allergies and intolerances, many consumers are now seeking out the ingredients in food, drinks and no less: skincare and beauty ingredients, it’s a simple right to be able to know what on earth is in the products we are using.
Understanding ingredients in skin and beauty products does not mean you have to have a degree in science or be a skincare formulator or beauty therapist, you just need a simple kind of transparency that will make you feel confident about the natural beauty choices you are making especially if you have sensitive skin, or you have made lifestyle choices that merge into your skin and beauty products too.
The brand Evolve launched in 2015, but they’ve recently enjoyed press attention and wonderful awards:
- Evolve Organic Beauty won the 2018 Beauty Shortlist Award for best natural/organic skincare brand in the United Kingdom.
- Evolve Organic Beauty Daily Renew Facial Cream won the best moisturiser for normal skin in the 2018 Beauty Shortlist Award.
- Evolve Organic Radiant Glow Mask also won the best face mask for all skin types, at the same 2018 Beauty Shortlist Awards.
- The brand also won best cleanser for their Evolve Organic Beauty Gentle Cleansing melt.
- And finally Evolve’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum was runner up for best daily serum age 30+ at the 2018 Beauty Shortlist Awards.
We like to describe Evolve as a grown up, sleeker alternative to LUSH fresh beauty products. The ethos of the brand prides itself on hand made, hand blended beauty product with fresh ingredients, Evolve Organic Beauty products last for 12-18 months and every label tells you when the expiry date is. Freshness guaranteed.
Each bottle, pot or container is hand made and you’ll find out which special human someone actually hand-blended the product for you. It doesn’t get more lovingly personal that that!
Evolve Organic Beauty prints the name of the person that created your one-of-a-kind product on the label. Speaking of packaging… as an artisan brand Evolve Organic Beauty are big on recycling. All plastic bottles are 75% post consumer plastic bottles. This PET plastic, unlike PVC is fully recyclable. You can reuse your bottle at home or simply remove the pump, clean the bottle and pop it in the recycling bin – once you are all out of product of course! Evolve bottles come in plain, brown cardboard that is also recycled.
(We know it’s not a deal-breaker – but these products look great on any bathroom shelf!)
Is Evolve Organic Beauty cruelty free and vegan friendly?
All Evolve Organic Beauty products are cruelty free and vegan friendly, not only to animals but also to our incredible planet to reduce pollution and waste, and that can’t be a bad thing, right? Here’s a quote from the brand:
“We [Evolve Organic Beauty] care about our world and this reflects in all our principles: we use recyclable glass and card packaging, our PET bottles are made of 75% recycled plastic and are recyclable, our products are 100% vegan, our ingredients are 100% cruelty-free and we buy natural and organic ingredients from as close to home as possible and from fair-trade and sustainable sources.”
How does Evolve Organic Beauty compare to brands like Dermalogica?
There’s been a lot of debate over the years about natural skincare. Evolve Organic Beauty believe that healthy skin must be nourished in the exact same way as a healthy body – and with exact same ingredients. Whereas Dermalogica have partnered with scientists over the years and do produce synthetic ingredients, noting that these are safe.
Simply put – Evolve Organic Beauty have a passion for creating hand-blended products with organic ingredients.
Dermalogica have a passion for using the best of both science and nature – so they will develop formulas in a lab.
It’s as simple as this – if you like to know exactly what is in your products Evolve Organic Beauty can help, Of course, as this brand is a lower price point you will be able to make a happy saving, too
Is this brand for a specific age group?
Evolve Organic Beauty is for all ages – in truth, it seems vegans, activists and those who know nothing about skincare feel totally at ease using this brand, regardless of age.
Will Evolve Organic Beauty suit my skin type?
After reading through stellar reviews, we’ve concluded that mature and sensitive skin types are particularly in love with Evolve Organic Beauty. But there’s a little something for everyone.
