Clean & Ethical Skincare

At Herbal Essentials, we believe that powerful natural actives and botanicals are best for our skin. Our Clean Skin promise is that we will always intentionally stay away from chemicals that can cause irritation and dryness, using only those synthetic ingredients which are essential to ensure the efficacy and lifespan of the product.  We are proud to state that our collections are at least 90% natural origin. Why spoil nature’s finest ingredients with chemicals?

As a brand that found its inspiration and hero ingredient within the dramatic Himalayan mountains, the environment is central to Herbal Essential’s ethos. Our collections are vegetarian, with many certified suitable for vegans; and the brand is certified cruelty free, with neither products or ingredients tested on animals. Packaging is recyclable, with bottles made of glass polymer rather than plastic, and we have never used plastic microbeads in our products.

Our inspiration and source

Soaring majestically across Asia, the Himalayas are one of the world’s most spectacular regions. From breathtaking glaciers to the highest mountain on the planet, the natural wonders of the Himalayas are a sight to behold. But for us, the true wonder is to be found at a microscopic level; the mineral-rich soil and rock, the therapeutic plants, and the transformational powers of the water that bubbles from its natural springs.

It is here, in one of the most remote places on the planet, that the Herbal Essential story begins.

The Water

Sourced directly from the foothills of the mountains, our pure Himalayan Spring Water lies at the heart of our collections. This remarkable ingredient’s descent through the peaks has taken it through potent, mineral-rich stones and soil, absorbing a powerful concentration of skin-boosting ingredients such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.

How do these elements help your skin? Through their natural ability to soothe, refresh and hydrate. The minerals within our water are known to support skin repair and regeneration, helping to gently cleanse and calm without stripping away essential oils. Himalayan Spring Water is truly Nature’s gift to your complexion.

Our exceptional formulations

At Herbal Essentials, we are meticulous about our formulations. Unlike many brands, we avoid harsh, soap-based cleansers which disturb the skin’s natural moisture balance, or rough exfoliants which cause damage to the skin cells and cause inflammation. Additionally, our team of experts work every day to develop the best cosmetic products for everyday skin care.

Our award-winning experts specialise in gentle formulas which have the power to transform skin. But don’t take our word for it – our clinical trials speak for themselves.

Our Ethos

Our products are mostly vegan and gluten free, cruelty free, and made with recyclable packaging. Every product we sell contains uses only those synthetic ingredients which are essential to ensure the efficacy and lifespan of the product.
