Upcircle organic eco-friendly skincare

UpCircle craft natural, organic skincare that’s better for you and the planet. Using leftover, natural ingredients, such as used coffee grounds and brewed spices, Upcircle brings them back to life as eco-friendly beauty products that are great for all skin types and smell amazing.

Nature gives us lots of wonderful ingredients that make our skin healthier and more radiant – like used coffee grounds and brewed chai tea spices. They often end up going to landfill, but why should all that good stuff go to waste?

I love the Upcircle have done something about using up these still-valuable, skin-friendly waste ingredients.

More about Upcircle

UpCircle’s journey began by collecting used coffee grounds from coffee shops in London and repurposing them into a skincare range of fully natural, vegan face and body scrubs.

Back in 2015, brother and sister co-founders Anna and Will Brightman began their journey.

‘We had a thought,’ says Anna, ‘That if we’re throwing away a cafetière full of coffee grounds every morning, how much is going to waste from coffee shops all over London?

‘A lot, as it turns out. So we decided to do something about it. We needed a way to give those coffee grounds a new lease of life. And UpCircle was born.

‘We began our journey collecting coffee grounds from one coffee shop, we now collect from hundreds of coffee houses across London – our list is always growing!’

Dragon’s Den

You might remember seeing Will and Anna pitching their business on Dragon’s Den in 2018. They received investment offers from 3 dragons and agreed a deal with Touker Suleyman and Tej Lalvni. 

They now repurpose ten would-be waste ingredients from the argan, tea, juice, coffee, date, apricot, olive and wood industries. This has grown into full planet-kind skincare range of moisturisers, face cleansers, make-up removers, body creams, toners, eye cream, facial serums, antibacterial hand wash and soaps. They now repurpose ten would-be waste ingredients from the argan, tea, juice, coffee, date, apricot, olive and wood industries.

The ethos behind the brand is simple – ‘Reused, repurposed, reloved’. Creating a positive environmental impact is at the heart of what UpCircle do.

They really have left no stone unturned and everything is 100% cruelty-free and made from top quality ingredients and sustainable materials.  We are proud to be a stockist of UpCircle beauty products and their closed-loop, circular economy of skincare.
