Why We Should Support UK Made Beauty

Why We Should Support UK Made Beauty

It seems like there has been a real movement towards buying British products recently, which is lovely to see. We know that some people look to only buy British made skincare products now, which is a real testament to the strength of the British beauty industry. At Nakin we are proud to be a UK Skincare Company and have our products produced in the UK. It is important to us for ethical reasons to produce our products in the UK, but it also has so many wider benefits. We know our products are always made to meet the highest quality standards, and it means a lot for us to support and create jobs in the UK. There are so many reasons to buy British products and some of the main ones are listed below.

  • Buying products made in the UK supports the British economy.
  • When we purchase products made in the UK, we help to create more local jobs.
  • Buying British made products feels good and strengthens the UK community.
  • UK manufacturing seemed to decline a few decades ago which was such a shame. Buying products made here nurtures UK manufacturing, which is lovely to see.
  • UK products have a reputation worldwide to be of extremely high quality. This is due to our innovative products and high-quality manufacturing processes.
  • If you live in Britain and buy British goods, then it is an eco-friendly way to shop. It reduces our carbon footprint with shorter and easier transportation of goods.

Sometimes products made in the UK might be cheaper than those produced abroad, where labour costs might be cheaper. But the quality is really high in the UK, and when we buy something in here, we are not spending our money on high cargo costs. The money we spend mostly goes towards the cost of producing the product. Shopping more locally is also easier to arrange and sort out any after purchase issues, such as faulty products or returns.

One of the obstacles to buying British beauty products is not knowing where a product is made. An easy way to work this out is to look at the product information and the box, where it should usually say if the product is made in the UK. There has also been a rise in blogs and forums set-up that are solely dedicated to promoting products that are made in the UK.  

Supporting UK made beauty products comes with a multitude of benefits that extend beyond the allure of high-quality cosmetics. Firstly, purchasing locally made beauty items helps to boost the British economy by supporting domestic manufacturers and creating jobs within the industry. Secondly, UK beauty standards are among the highest in the world, ensuring that the products meet stringent regulations for safety and efficacy. Furthermore, buying locally reduces the carbon footprint associated with transporting goods from overseas, thereby contributing to environmental sustainability. Many UK beauty brands also prioritise ethical practices, such as cruelty-free testing and the use of natural, responsibly sourced ingredients. By choosing UK made beauty products, you can feel confident that they are investing in high-quality, ethical, and environmentally friendly choices. Additionally, supporting UK beauty brands can also have a positive impact on local communities as most businesses bring lots of economic and community benefits to an area. As consumers become more conscious about the impact of their purchasing decisions, choosing to support UK made beauty products aligns with values of sustainability, ethics, and community support.

In addition to the benefits for the economy and the environment, supporting UK made beauty products can also have a positive impact on personal health and well-being. Many UK brands like ours prioritise using natural ingredients in the products, which can be beneficial for those with sensitive skin or allergies. These locally sourced ingredients are often fresher and of higher quality compared to those imported from other countries. Moreover, by purchasing from local businesses, consumers have the opportunity to directly communicate with the producers and ask about the ingredients used in their products, allowing for greater transparency and trust.
