We've Discovered a New Place to Buy Beauty, and It Has All the Best Niche Brands


Neighbourhood Botanicals

Wolf & Badger is a treasure trove of independent fashion, jewellery and homeware, but its beauty brands really has us excited. You might not have heard of some of these labels, but trust us when we say that should change immediately.

We head to this unique store for a stellar selection of curated products that are stylish and ethically and environmentally conscious. Wolf & Badger carries over 100 beauty brands—all of which value the importance of being 100% organic, sustainably made, non-toxic and cruelty-free. Henry Graham, creative director and co-founder of Wolf & Badger told Byrdie, "All our products are organic, free from nasty chemicals and free from cruelty wherever possible. Despite this restrictive selection criteria, we have still been able to work with great, forward-thinking brands that make wonderful, effective and beautifully packaged products that our customers love."

We don’t know about you, but there’s a certain gratification we feel from supporting small brands and knowing all the products aren’t harming animals or the planet.

Better yet, you will soon be able to shop the unique, indie brands at the luxe new (three-story, no less) flagship store at Coal Drops Yard in King’s Cross. Opening on 26 October, the store will offer beauty, vintage, fashion, floristry, antiques and a cafe (because shopping is thirsty work).

The dedicated beauty counter will house all the best beauty brands. You will also be able to acquire beauty tips, expert advice and complimentary skin treatments. There'll be "Meet the Maker" events, in which the brands offer discounts and exclusive treatments. Keeping with the environmentally friendly theme, once a month, Wolf & Badger will host "Sustainability Sunday" panel discussions within the store, which are open to the public.
