Face Moisturiser with Vitamin E

No reviews

  • The deeply hydrating, fast-absorbing face cream from UpCircle helps to nourish and brighten all skin types. It is formulated mainly with argan powder rich in vitamin E and is combined with moisturising cocoa butter, calming aloe vera and energetic blood orange. This gives the face moisturiser a fresh, light and zesty smell –perfect to take care of your skin in the morning!

    Argan powder
    UpCircle gives ingredients that would otherwise be discarded a second chance. This face cream is produced with finely-ground powder of discarded argan shells, a natural by-product of the argan oil industry. Argan powder is rich in antioxidants, fatty acids and vitamins, especially vitamin E. The powder helps with the absorption of the cream into the skin and helps protect body cells.

    Cacao butter
    Cocoa butter is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids. The properties of cocoa butter make it an excellent ingredient for deeply moisturising dry, itchy skin and maintaining its elasticity.

    Sage oil
    The moisturising and conditioning properties of sage oil help soothe the dryness and irritation of the skin. It also works to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections, large pores and even minor scarring.

    Linseed oil
    Linseed oil is extremely beneficial for chronic skin conditions, such as rosacea, acne, dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. The fatty acids act to balance out the skin’s own oils and reduce inflammation, helping the skin to repair.

    How to use
    Apply the cream on clean and dry skin and massage it in until it is well absorbed. The moisturiser is suitable for all skin types and for daily day and night use.

    Use the UpCircle metal scoops to simply apply the face cream without having to use your fingers.

    Beat the Microbead - Microplastics
    UpCircle's face cream has the 'Look for the Zero - Zero Plastic Inside' logo from Beat the Microbead.

    Packaging
    This moisturiser comes in a glass jar with an aluminium lid. The packaging is fully recyclable. There is a plastic liner in the cap which makes the jar leakproof and airtight. It also helps to preserve the product longer and protect the lid from the essential oils in the cream. Essential oils can cause aluminium to oxidise (meaning it develops a black coating) which can spoil the product. At present, there is no suitable alternative. We recommend reusing the bottles as much as you can and if you do throw them away, recycle the plastic liner separately.

About the brand

UpCircle

In 2016, UpCircle siblings Will and Anna quit their jobs and risked it all to nurture and grow their by-product beauty baby. The circular economy sits at the heart of what UpCircle does. UpCircle hints at ‘upcycling’, the process of making something better from things that already exist. The UpCircle mission is to leave the world better than they found it by transforming ingredients that would otherwise be discarded into natural, organic beauty products.

Each product in UpCircle’s range sources and rescues by-products from other industries – the food and drink industry in particular. The UpCircle story started with the idea of giving used coffee grounds a new lease of life. UpCircle now also gives chai tea spices and fruit stones a new beginning. At UpCircle nothing is safe from being UpCircled! Food ingredients can have powerful effects on the body - inside and out – so there’s an opportunity to create beauty products from food ingredients that are being discarded yet still have much to offer our skin.

UpCircle uses only the finest plant-based ingredients, and never test on animals. The packaging across UpCircle’s range is 99% plastic-free and they offer plastic-free refill options for the 1%.
