Halo Skincare was founded in 2007 by Soni Shah, after her own search for natural, unperfumed, paraben-free skincare products revealed that there was very little choice in the UK market at the time. Soni, herself a science graduate from Oxford University, with a career in sustainable development, worked alongside UK skincare experts to exacting EU regulations and vegan and halal specifications, to formulate the high quality Halo Skincare brand.
“As an ethical business, we’re mindful of the benefits of using natural and organic ingredients as much as possible. We want to pay a fair wage to our suppliers, and minimise the impact of our business on the environment – with the ultimate goal of offering our customers great affordable organic skincare!” Founder Soni Shah
Halo Skincare launched it’s first skincare product – the Halo Moisturising Face Cream, light enough for everyday use, and gentle enough for those with sensitive skin. We were delighted when in 2008 our Moisturising Face Cream won the prestigious ‘Best Beauty Product of the Year’ Award from the Vegetarian Society of the UK.
Twelve years on in 2019, Halo Skincare has shifted from using natural active ingredients to organic actives, and producing an organic face and body range that meets the needs of those looking for high quality, yet affordable organic skincare products.
Furthermore at Halo Skincare, we strive to be an ethical business, our products are made in the UK and where possible we seek to source ingredients that have been Fairly Traded such as in our Pure Shea and Shea Heaven balms, where the shea nut butter comes from a women’s cooperative in Ghana. Our products are sold in recyclable packaging, without outer boxed packaging which we think is unnecessarily wasteful.
