Ingredients that Hawkins & Brimble lovingly use in their products:
Almond Oil is a mild, hypoallergenic oil that can be easily penetrate into the skin, softening and dislodging the dirt and debris accumulated in the skin pores. It also can help prevents blackheads and acne.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice is high in Amino acids and active enzymes, a source of natural vegetable derived keratin and well known for its cooling and conditioning effects.
Argan Oil hydrates and softens the skin. It absorbs easily, is non-greasy and non-irritating, which makes it a great natural moisturiser.
Beeswax contains Vitamin A and provides long-term natural moisturizing properties, that actually lock moisture into the skin. Also has anti-allergenic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can soothe easily irritated skin.
Caffeine is stimulating and can be used to awaken the skin to make it feel energised.
Cacao is an excellent anti-inflammatory, soothes redness and improves the skin’s complexion. Contains healthy omega-6 fatty acids for a healthy dose of skin soothing rejuvenation.
Castor Oil is high in the content of minerals, acids, and nutrients which all contribute to healthy hair growth.
Cocoa Butter makes an excellent skin moisturizer, plus it helps actually heal it from the inside out too preventing skin dryness and pealing.
Coconut Oil restores natural oil balance of hair. It also creates humidity and moisture barrier and protects the hair fibres from uneven swelling, which is the main cause of frizzy hair.
Ginger is stimulating and increases the scalp circulation, resulting in the flow of blood to the scalp. Which leads to stimulation of hair follicles and encourages hair growth. It also contains natural antiseptic properties that make it ideal for tackling dandruff.
Jojoba Oil closely resembles sebum, which is a waxy substance that acts as a natural skin conditioner (without the use of chemicals).
Oat Lipid (Avena Sativa Kernel Oil) absorbs into the skin really well and protects by naturally occurring powerful antioxidants including vitamin E.
Olive Oil will penetrate deep into the skin and provide a long-lasting shield of moisture to keep the skin smooth and supple.
Panthenol (Pro Vitamin B5) penetrates deep into hair cortex, to help swell the hair shaft to give it more body. Conditioning.
Shea Butter is a rich moisturiser that conditions the skin.
Tsubaki Oil is used to soften hair & acts as a conditioner. Gives shine, helps repair split ends and protects hair from external influences.
Tapioca is a natural starch that acts as a thickener and provides a silky-smooth feel on the skin.
Walnut Shells are crushed and added to our facial scrub to add texture that exfoliates gently to gently buff away dead skin cells.
Virgin Poppy Seed Oil has proven hair smoothing, softening and conditioning properties.
Hawkins & Brimble is company which cares to reduce impact on the environment!
Hawkins & Brimble are proud to support British manufacturers and aim to reduce carbon emissions, so the majority of their suppliers are based in the UK. These include filling factories, bottle and tube manufacturers and even cardboard box producer.
They are focused on reducing their impact on the environment in the following ways:
- They are moving all of their cardboard packaging to 100%-made-from-recycled-board.
- This year they will start using PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) plastic in their packaging, which has benefits to virgin material. These plastics have been reprocessed to be re-used in new manufacturing. PCR conserves energy and non-renewable resources, as recycling replaces the need for primary extraction and the manufacture of new plastics.
- They are moving a number of our plastic tubes to 100% aluminium, which is easily recyclable.
- They don’t use any plastic in their transit packaging and are keeping it that way.
- They are using glass in many of our new products like our moisturisers and beard oil, which is easily recyclable
