More about Whitfords

A UK family business working in small batches, Whitfords makes truly 100% plastic-free, vegan skincare using the finest botanical ingredients. That means innovative bio-ferments, peptides and liposomes for targeted delivery of active ingredients, resulting in products that produce real results.

Driven by efficacy and sustainability, they use cold processes and minimal or no water-content and they offer alternatives to palm-derived ingredients. Most of their ingredients are also purchased from cooperatives that help local people, in particular women.

To be truly are 100% plastic-free, all their products are housed in fully reusable and endlessly recyclable, stylish aluminium jars - no plastic at all! All of Whitfords' luxurious and gender-neutral products are also certified Cruelty-Free and are formulated with sensitive skin in mind.

For every product they sell, they plant one tree.
