Inspired by the ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda, Delhicious Body harnesses the power of Black Assam Tea to create healing skincare products that help your skin to thrive. Husband and wife team Zak & Zara created the company while Zara was pregnant with their first child, during which time Zara suffered with extremely dry and painful skin, driving her to create her own natural solution. After a lot of research and digging into their Indian heritage, they created the Black Tea Body Scrub.
Available in three luxurious variations, Original, Mint & Coconut, their scrubs have proved to be a massive hit, along with their gorgeous body balms.
Made with natural ingredients, Delhicious Body products are formulated to banish dry skin and leave it softer, smoother and glowing. All products are vegan, cruelty free, and come in recyclable packaging. And on top of that they donate 10% of profits to ‘Stop the Traffik’, a wonderful charity committed to preventing and ending human trafficking.
Born from a passion for making natural skincare products, Soapology was created by owner Emma in 2011, and since then has become a huge success. From selling beautiful Handcrafted Artisan Soaps, to running soap-making workshops at their studio in Nottinghamshire, Soapology offers extensive soap knowledge and experience to their customers.
Their eclectic range of soaps includes something for everyone, with stunning designs and scents to match. All of their soaps are 100% natural, palm oil free, cruelty free, and come in recyclable packaging.
Made in small quality-controlled batches to the best standards, each bar is unique in shape and colour patterns, meaning you’ll always get one of a kind. With only natural ingredients, these soaps are kind to the skin and contain nourishing oils that work together to create a long lasting, moisturising, gorgeous bar of soap.
For every 10 bars of soap that Soapology sell, they donate 1 bar to homeless charity ‘Framework’, who support vulnerable and homeless people in the Nottinghamshire area.
This family-run business has lovingly created beautiful, award-winning skincare products, after suffering from eczema and dermatitis as a family. After trying numerous other products and treatments, Victoria set out to create their own solution and started off with a course in aromatherapy. With an abundance of knowledge in skincare, the creation of Butterwhips followed and they now have a wonderful selection of skin-loving products that not only smell divine but do wonders for the skin as well, having been made exclusively from sustainable plant or mineral-based ingredients.
With strong ethical values, the family behind Butterwhips has ensured that these values are translated into the company. Each of their products is organic, vegan, cruelty-free, and hand made in small batches to the highest standards, meeting all necessary regulatory requirements, and packaged in recyclable packaging.
They also ensure that their products meet their core principles:

An independent company run by married couple Veronika & Dimitar in the town of Wokingham, Clarity Blend has a mission to make aromatherapy accessible for everyone to enjoy.
After having their own struggles with the stress of their busy day-to-day lives, Veronika & Dimitar created Clarity Blend with a passion for aromatherapy that stemmed from their fond memories of growing up in the Bulgarian countryside, surrounded by nature’s aromatic plants.
Through their own research, and working with clinical aromatherapists, they created their own unique blends, while also drawing inspiration from their personal interests in yoga and meditation. Produced in-line with stringent standards, their products are all 100% natural, vegan and cruelty-free, and their packaging is fully recyclable.
Proud to provide their customers with beautiful high-quality scents, they’ve deemed their products “Nature in a bottle” and if you’ve tried any, it’s not hard to see why.
Their range of products include pulse point roll-ons, bath & body oils, bath salts, diffuser blends and eye pillows. These come in different ranges of gorgeous scents, which are all sure to improve your well-being.
Founded by James Cadbury, the great-great-great grandson of John Cadbury, Love Cocoa was created with an aim to make delicious, planet-friendly chocolate, inspired by the great ethical grounds on which Cadbury was originally built nearly 20 years ago.
They sustainably source the best tasting chocolate by working with small family run businesses, guaranteeing fair prices for the cocoa farmers and everyone else involved in the production process.
In an effort to offset their carbon footprint, Love Cocoa works with farmers in Kenya to plant 1 tree for every product they sell, through charity ‘Trees for the Future’. Not only does this help the environment, but also provides opportunities for the local communities and cocoa farmers, helping them to move away from unsustainable farming methods.
When it comes to their finished products, their chocolate tastes just as divine as it looks, and is beautifully packaged in recyclable or biodegradable packaging.
