This female-founded, cruelty-free, vegan-friendly range offers a wide selection of multi-tasking mineral make-up products, including foundations, blushers and bronzers. The brand uses only ethically sourced, all-natural ingredients to create their formulations, with compostable packaging refills, to help eliminate product waste. All of the products in Honeypie Minerals line are handmade in small batches in the UK and are created with 100% natural ingredients.
The brainchild of Claudia Keogh, the company was founded in 2012, after she got tired of the toxic ingredients that were irritating her own skin. Today, Honeypie Minerals is on a mission to create nature-based, skin-kind mineral cosmetics, that are free of GMO ingredients. The company has now become a multi-award winning brand, thanks to stand-out products such as their signature mineral foundation, which scooped Gold in the Green Parent Beauty Awards 2020 and is free from talc, preservatives, nano-particles and fragrance.
Using only biodegradable packaging, including vegan paper tape, acid-free paper and forest certified boxes, Honeypie Minerals manufacture all their products using 100% green renewable electricity from renewable sources. Impressively, the brand claims that even their website is CO2 neutral, with every visit offset by their partnership with the initiative Tree Nation, to plant more trees!
Honeypie Minerals demonstrate a serious commitment to sustainability but they are also dedicated to social and animal welfare. The company claims that it’s strongly anti-slavery, trafficking, and child exploitation, aims to develop partnerships to improve gender and race equality in local communities, does not use ingredients that have been tested on animals at any point, and only partners with suppliers who’ve committed to the safety and wellbeing of all employees.
As their impressively stocked cosmetic line also comes in a huge choice of shades to suit every skin colour and preference, plus the brand promises to plant 1 tree for every single product purchased – we think that Honeypie Minerals is ideal for anyone who wants to fill their make-up bag with sustainable, skin-kind products.
