Ethical beauty company launches own charity

UK-based beauty brand PHB Ethical Beauty has announced the launch of its OneLove Foundation charity to help improve the lives of people and animals in the UK and around the world.

The company, which is dedicated to raising awareness about ethical issues that arise in the cosmetics industry such as the use of animal derived ingredients, animal cruelty, chemical ingredients and palm oil, already donates 20% of its net profits to other charities with a similar goal.

PHB’s range of organic, vegan and Halal cosmetics is handmade in the UK and certified cruelty-free.

Founded 25 years ago by Rose Brown, daughter of UB40 drummer and songwriter James Brown, the company’s aim is to change the way people think about their beauty product choices, and to eventually become a not-for-profit organization.

“We have created the OneLove Foundation based on the belief that it’s vital to share what we have, to give back, to help others and to care for the earth,” says Brown. “All people and creatures living on this earth are interrelated and dependent on each other.

“Through our OneLove Foundation PHB will fund projects to help people, especially children, and animals in the UK and around the world. We will also partner with established charities and projects to donate and raise awareness about their worthy causes.”
