Lush is paving the way for sustainable cosmetics with the launch of its new solid mascara, made from a blend of butters and waxes.

Read below to find out more.


1. S’Able Labs Skin Care

Idris Elba and his wife, Sabrina, have launched a new gendeless skin care brand as part of their wellness empire S'Able Labs.

The range features a Qasil Cleanser (£28), a Black Seed Toner (£35) and Baobab Moisturiser (£50).

The cleanser’s inclusion of qasil, a Somalian beauty staple harvested from the gob tree, stems from its use in protecting and repairing skin exposed to extreme weather conditions.

Black seed oil, meanwhile, contains vitamin A, amino acids and essential fatty acids, with the toner being designed to help to boost skin regeneration.

The moisturiser’s formula has been blended with bakuchiol, a natural and gentle alternative to retinol, in addition to baobab, which has anti-inflammatory properties.

Product packaging has been made from post-consumer materials.

The products can be purchased on sablelabs.co.

2. Zarkoperfume

Zarkoperfume has released a new EDP called Youth, inspired by the years spent as a teenager.

Top notes include peach, melon and apple, with the mid notes derived from jasmine, rose, white flowers and plum.

The fragrance is rounded off by a base of sandalwood, powdery musk accord and vanilla.

The brand said the perfume is a molecular scent, which combines with the body's own natural scent to create a unique and personal fragrance.

Zarkoperfume’s 100ml Youth EDP is available to purchase from escentual.com for £95.

3. Lush

Lush has launched its new Naked Mascara (RRP £10.00), which uses butters and waxes to create a solid product.

Available in four shades, Orca (black), Earth (brown), Reef (coral) and Ocean (blue), the mascara has been designed to add a subtle tint and lift to the lashes.

Ingredients include organic cocoa butter to help condition the lashes and illipe and cupuaçu butters to soften them.

Japan wax also features which helps to give lashes definition, while rice bran and candelilla wax aid in evenly distributing the colour.

Lush said to use the product, wet the brush and place it into the mascara, then rotate the brush inside to pick up colour and apply to the lashes.

The brand also suggested leaving the brush and the solid mascara to dry separately.

The mascara can be purchased on lush.com.

4. Ancient + Brave

Wellbeing brand Ancient + Brave released its new Wild Collagen powder.

The type I hydrolysed marine collagen is made from the skin of sustainably sourced white fish from the North Atlantic.

The brand added that the powder has a neutral taste, and can be dissolved into hot or cold drinks or sprinkled on food.

Wild Collagen is a source of protein featuring eight essential amino acids.

Ancient + Brave Wild Collagen, RRP £32, is available on ancientandbrave.earth.

5. ONRŪ

ONRŪ is a newly launched sustainable immunity supplement brand.

Their debut range includes three supplements designed and produced with sustainably sourced materials: Essential Immunity, Sleep + Immunity and Travel Immunity.

The brand said the supplements are vegan, adaptogenic and contain zero artificial fillers or additives.

Each dose helps to boost the immune system to aid with travel, low quality sleep, stress, vitamin deficiency and diet.

ONRŪ supplements are priced at RRP $65 on onru.com.

6. Arbonne

Arbonne’s new DermResults Glow Cream and Smoothing Glow Cleanser are now available to buy.

Both products contain vitamin C, which aids in preventing a build-up of dead skin cells.

Brown algae extract also features in the formula for the cleanser, which helps to support the skin's outer layer and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The Glow Cream, meanwhile, uses Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, and white lupine lipopeptides which works to smooth the skin.

The cleaner (RRP £40) and cream (RRP £61) can be purchased on arbonne.com.

7. Olehenriksen

Olehenriksen has updated its Banana Bright Eye Crème with a new formula.

Making use of advances in vitamin C technology, the product now contains three forms of vitamin C, blended with gold, which has been designed to brighten and improve the skin's elasticity.

The updated formula also features hardy orange extract, an antioxidant-rich plant that pairs with the vitamin C to reduce the look of dark spots.

The Banana Bright+ Eye Crème, (£35), is available at select Boots stores and boots.com.

8. Physicians Formula

Cosmetics brand Physicians Formula has launched a new licensed colour cosmetics collection inspired by the iconic 80’s film, The Breakfast Club.

The range includes the Saturday Detention Face Palette, featuring bronzers, highlighters and blushes, and the 12-shade Being Bad Feels Pretty Good Eyeshadow Palette.

A Detention Mascara, featuring essential fatty acids and pro-vitamins that soften, condition and moisturise lashes, also features as a part of the collection.

The Princess Lipstick, meanwhile, offers full coverage colour with a moisturising semi-matte finish,- available in three shades. Each product is infused with murumuru butter, cupuaçu butter and tucuma butter, sourced from the Amazon rainforest region.
