New Scence Actives - Sustainable Skincare Range

Scence is a family business based in Cornwall and headed by sisters, Krista and Mel. We have created a range of vegan certified natural skincare which we formulate and make by hand. We present our beautiful balms in 100% paper packaging so if you care about what you put on your skin, care about our planet and want to join us in living a more sustainable life, please read on!

Eighteen months ago our little skincare business was quietly thriving and gently growing month on month. Our strengths and values along with plastic-free packaging and vegan formulations had ensured our warm welcome by the ethical consumer and our family run business based in Cornwall was ticking along nicely.

Then the pandemic hit and our wholesale income disappeared overnight. As a manufacturer we were not eligible for any government support so we had to think our way forward and consider how we could respond positively to the pandemic. We started by gifting thousands of hand balms to our precious NHS staff to help soothe skin problems emerging from alcohol based sanitisers and frequent washing.

We knew we had to use this time productively and set out to research new ingredients for a complementary cleansing and moisturising range. Our research settled on some excellent natural active ingredients with tested and proven efficacy and a powerful anti-microbial product made from natural salt water, which offers a brilliantly effective clarifying action on the skin.

We have now developed a new range of all natural skincare products that have the added advantage of these new actives. The new range complements and adds to our current Scence balms and includes a micellar cleanser, exfoliating polish, rose toner, a light moisturiser Ectoin face cream and area specific eye and lip serums. This range helps to clarify blemishes and even the complexion, lighten dark eye areas and reduce puffiness as well as reduce fine lines and wrinkles. 

How will funding be used?

Whilst we now have some wonderful new formulations ready to rock there are considerable costs involved to bring a product safely and effectively to market. 

These include:

Independent laboratory testing and safety certification.

EU compliance and registration.

Vegan registration and certification

COSMOS registration and certification.

Packaging design, development and production.

Marketing and spreading the word… Just to name a few!

 As a plastic free, vegan skincare company we are committed to our continued efforts to develop and bring the highest quality products to market without compromise. Our online and retail community fuels our enthusiasm and we see support every day from well-wishers with heartwarming messages and countless likes, reviews and shares online. We know that our customers value our ethos and feel the same way we do about our precious world.

We are now in our fourth year of trading and many of you have been with us from the start… we would love you to continue to be involved in our journey of development, either by donating or choosing a package to match your budget from our current Scence range or advance ordering from our new Actives range of products to be delivered in the Spring. Your support will help us make this next dream a reality!
