Sustainability Series Part 1- Content Beauty & Wellbeing, No, Really!

No, this is not advertisement as much as it is pure and utter LOVE and desire to share.  As you may know, I am a “Green Beauty Freak”, but then again who wouldn’t be obsessed with natural, non-toxic ways in which you can care for your body, while looking happy and healthy.  While I’m quite excited to share all of the specific products and beauty methods I have learnt and adapted into my life, I’m here to share with you, an extraordinary place under the name Content Beauty , and for good reason…

What Is Content Beauty?

 

I first discovered “Content Beauty/Wellbeing” through a mutual friend on Instagram and I absolutely fell in love with the concept, the products and the brilliant founder Imelda Burke.  Content Beauty is a London-Based boutique, organic skincare store, naturopathic clinic, beauty salon and website at the forefront of the move towards natural and organic skincare and complementary therapies, which opened in 2008.

“Specialising in emerging results-driven niche brands, Content is regarded as London’s leading organic and natural apothecary.

In the rapidly evolving natural & organic beauty sector Content provides a hand-picked selection of the most advanced, cult natural beauty brands from around the world. Brand selection involves meeting a criteria, which ensures undesirable synthetic chemicals, are edited whilst focusing on results driven high-end beauty brands. Proving that the desire to go natural is no longer a compromise on results or luxury.

With the launch of some of the most advanced organic skincare brands into the UK market, Content has been the first to showcase Absolution Skincare, Amala, Less is More, Rms Beauty, Strange Invisible Perfumes, Ilia Beauty, Vapour, W3LL People, MV Skincare, Hurraw Balms and many more.

Covering product categories such as organic hair care, organic perfume, organic make up and of course organic skincare and supplements means that Content is a one stop shop for all your natural beauty requirements.”

You can close your mouth and take a breath now…..you know, it’s not only completely disconcerting to realize what unnecessary toxins we put on/into our precious bodies, but entirely tragic.  All products sold at Content Beauty are “Content Approved” and you can learn what makes each specific product “approved” at (click here) contentbeautywellbeing.com.  This basically means the product has met all guidelines.

 

 

Our bodies deserve only the best right?  YOU deserve the best.  Simplistic beauty is beautiful and using ingredients derived from our earth is, well, as pure as it gets.

 

From the packaging and products, to the store in itself, Content Beauty is “Green Haven for the inner Green Goddess within you.
