  • The UpCircle natural hand & body wash cleans and leaves the skin moisturised and soft. It is made with repurposed kiwi water and a blend of lemongrass, mandarin, and peppermint oils, giving a revitalizing feeling to your skin while protecting it. This fresh, gentle cleanser leaves your hands appeased but also protected. It is suitable even for dry skins.

    The hand & body wash is the perfect match for the UpCircle hand & body lotion. The complementary scents have been designed with each other in mind and come in identical luxurious frosted glass bottles that will look great in any bathroom or kitchen.

    Kiwi Water
    UpCircle gives ingredients that would otherwise be discarded a second chance. This vegan hand and body wash is made with residual water of kiwi fruits, a by-product of the juicing industry. Besides its anti-inflammatory properties, kiwi has a high concentration of vitamin C, which helps to lock the moisture into the skin and brightens it.

    Lemongrass Oil
    Lemongrass has antimicrobial, antibacterial, and anti-fungal characteristics. Its antioxidant-rich compounds are one of the factors that make it an anti-inflammatory ingredient too. It is therefore a great oil for cleaning and calming irritated skin.

    Mandarin Oil
    Mandarin oil is a great skincare ingredient due to its antiseptic and calming properties. It is also a very rich source of Vitamin C, a powerful natural antioxidant which has many essential roles such as fighting free radicals and healing wounds.

    Peppermint Oil
    Peppermint is most famous for its cooling effects. It contains menthol for an automatic soothing sensation, perfect for calming irritation. The oil naturally cleanses the skin, is antiviral and is also high in vitamins A and C.

    Packaging
    The handwash comes in a bottle made from glass with a plastic pump. Now, you may be thinking: plastic? Though we are committed to selling plastic-free products, for some products we make a small exception. For your next order keep the pump from your first bottle and select the refill option with aluminium cap.

    There is a plastic liner in the cap which makes the bottle leakproof and airtight. It also helps to preserve the product longer and protect the lid from the essential oils in the hand and body wash. 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. The packaging is fully recyclable.

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%.
