our simple promise

We believe in clean and kind skincare that works. We say no to harsh ingredients that could upset your skin and we make positive changes to reduce our environmental impact.






kind to skin

 

Simple works with your skin. We know that good skin starts with good ingredients: so, we use only skin loving ingredients & vitamins your skin needs to function properly.

Harsh chemicals irritate skin and can have a negative impact on our overall health and the planet.  So, we don’t use them!  Our products don’t over-strip, over-irritate or over-complicate your skincare routine.

Our NOs list

Young Woman Blowing Feathers

We say no to harsh chemicals that can upset your skin, because we believe what we leave out of our products is just as important as what we put in them. That is why we have developed and shared our NOs list, so you can always trust that our skincare will be the most gentle and effective even on the most sensitive skin. 

  • Because they can upset your skin. Any light odour smell is coming from an active ingredient.

  • Makes products look flashy, but can overload your skin. We don't believe in adding anything that doesn't benefit the skin.

  • Yep, we keep all our products free from alcohol* since it can dry out your skin, weakening your skin’s natural barrier.

  • Of course! We never use harsh chemicals that could upset your skin.

  • Soap is a drying agent that will get rid of the essential natural oil on the surface of your skin. Our products contain mild/gentle cleansing agents instead.

  • Ingredients not kind to skin: Salicylic Acid, SLS, Peroxide, Retinol, Glycolic Acid

    Simple also have NO: Parbens, Phthalates, MIT, Animal Derived Ingredients, Petrolatum, Formaldehyde Donors, cyclopentasiloxane (D5), Fragrance, Triclosan

skin-loving ingredients

Your skin is your body’s largest and most hardworking organ, it helps control body temperature and protects you from bacteria and pollution. That’s why it’s our Simple promise to keep it healthy with effective yet gentle ingredients that work in harmony with your skin, because skin is alive.

Circular Economy 

Where we are not only using less packaging but designing our packaging to be reused, recycled, or composted. Keeping this valuable material where it should be – in the circular economy.  When it comes to plastic, less, better or no plastic is our motto! All Simple bottles and tubes are fully recyclable AND our bottles are made with recycled plastic. We have also moved away from any green bottles as we know clear bottles are easier to be recycled and reused. 

Range of Simple products

GHG Reduction

Our company aims to have no carbon emissions from our own operations and to halve GHG footprint of our products across the value chain by 2030.  With the launch of our biodegradable wipes we have decreased our GHG by 19.8% per wipe. By doing a life cycle analysis we are fully aware of the areas of focus.

Around 29% of our GHG footprint comes from raw materials for ingredients and packaging.  Which is why we’re continuously evaluating alternative raw material for our key formats and remain committed to sustainable sourcing of our ingredients to decrease GHG.  We’re committed to becoming carbon positive AND are well on our way.

our partnerships

woodland

 

The Woodland Trust, the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity, brings damaged ancient woodland back to life, safeguarding the carbon stores of the future and giving thousands of threatened wildlife species a home.

Simple’s support to date will help the Woodland Trust restore 116 hectares of ancient woodland. Ancient woods store carbon in their trees and their soil, offer priceless cultural and heritage value and have an irreplaceable impact on biodiversity.

“Ancient woodlands are some of our most biodiverse habitats and per hectare one of the best carbon stores in the country, but at least 60% of our existing ancient woodland is under threat. You can’t create ancient woodland, it takes centuries to develop its unique characteristics, so once it’s gone, it’s gone forever. But thanks to our partnership with Simple we can bring some of these precious habitats back from the brink, and make sure they’re still there for future generations of people and wildlife.” Dr Dean Kirkland, Ancient Woodland Restoration Project Manager at the Woodland Trust.

Thames21

Thames 21 logo

An environmental charity that mobilises thousands of volunteers every year to clean up the foreshore of the Thames and works on conservation projects for wetlands. 

Simple sponsors two major public “Big Wet Wipe Counts” removing  312 bags equivalent of 7tonnes of wipes and other waste that ends up on the foreshore when not disposed of properly. Simple will also help to support Thames21’s bespoke accredited training program for volunteers. Training them to run their own river litter-picks/river restoration activities and reach 1k+ people in London’s communities.

Remember to recycle packaging waste.  But if you do see waste in the river . . . . help us pick it up!

There’s a lot of kindness in the world but it can’t always be heard. We’re turning up the volume by partnering with Positive News magazine to share stories of kindness. The Simple team have selected the most inspiring Positive News articles that uncover kindness in action, and together we’re sharing these stories to help you choose kindness, too.
