Zero is the new launch from Manchester-based Skin Academy, positioned as the ‘first mass-market, 100% natural, 100% recyclable/recycled packaging, sustainable skincare range’.

The six-strong Skin Academy Zero offer features a Night Cream, Day Cream, Eye Cream, Face Scrub, Face Wash and Hand & Nail Cream, produced using natural ingredients such as sweet almond oil, coconut oil, shea butter, green tea extract and sacha inchi seed oil.

The brands says it is setting a new environmental standard in the beauty industry by creating a range which champions green, ethical practices while not compromising on quality and efficacy.

“Zero is a huge step forward for the industry as there are no synthetic elements in the product, so the ingredients are all natural, sustainably sourced, plant-based materials,” explains Antony Wagman, CEO of brand owner Quest Personal Care. “Most noticeably we have removed all artificial preservatives, which really sets the product apart from competitors and which will be welcome relief to consumers too, as we believe we really have ticked all the green credential boxes, whilst offering an effective, affordable range of beauty products.”

Where palm oil or its derivatives are included, these are responsibly sourced from growers with RSPO accreditation.

The products are packaged in fully recyclable glass jars with natural bamboo lids or bioplastic tubes made with sustainably sourced sugar cane. The full range is delivered in recyclable card, with a 15% recycled content and shipping cartons are made from 100% recycled card.
