We're delighted to share the news that we've been awarded the Eco Age Brandmark for recognition of sustainable excellence and, in their words, "natural beauty at its best"!
Founded by Livia Firth, Eco Age champions positive change in business and the wider sustainability conversation. Each selected brand must meet rigorous criteria and is assessed on their commitment to supply chain, environmental impact, transparency and innovation. Discover the areas of our brand Eco Age really loved the most.
Organic, plant-based ingredients
First up was the high-quality, natural and Soil Association-certified organic, plant based ingredients used across our collection. Each one has been carefully chosen by Sarah (they're her formulations!) for a specific purpose to benefit your skin: from the anti-inflammatory and deeply hydrating qualities of the GLA content of the organic primrose oil in the Organic Facial Oil to the anti-oxidant rich matcha green tea in the Green Clay Face Mask.
Transparency of ingredients
Transparency and empowerment is at the heart of BY SARAH and it's why we provide a full ingredient list on the front label across our skincare collection. It's only with full knowledge of what you're putting on your skin that you can make the best choices for you and your family. Knowing that every ingredient has been chosen to support your skin's health and has come from organic farming communities who are working hard to safeguard our soils, waterways and ecosystems for future generations is a very empowering and uplifting feeling. More than this, taking a moment to really be present when you apply the Organic Body Oil after your bath or shower, you can feel truly connected as you appreciate the high quality, ethically sourced ingredients and the positive impact you are having on your wellbeing and the planet.

Vegan, natural and organic skincare
The vegan products in our collection are registered with The Vegan Society; you'll spot the recognisable logo on the product pages of our website and their labels too. This is an independent assessment of our vegan products by The Vegan Society and gives you complete confidence that each one conforms to the strict requirements maintained by The Vegan Society of being free from animal-derived ingredients and animal testing. Read more about our vegan skincare.
Certified cruelty free
Our entire collection is certified cruelty free with Cruelty Free International. This is the only internationally recognized symbol guaranteeing that no animal testing has been used in the development of any of our products - this includes both the ingredient level (where the majority of animal testing typically occurs) and the finished skincare products. We are proudly transparent about the ingredients we use and this extends to our ban on animal testing - you'll spot the leaping bunny logo across our collection.
Eco Age commended our commitment to minimising our environmental footprint and choosing the most sustainable and eco-friendly packaging options. Here's just two ways we're achieving this:
- Bottles and Jars. We only use amber glass bottles and clear glass jars for our skincare which can be upcycled into a single stem vase or as a home for kitchen nuts and seeds or jewellery. And when recycled, the glass breaks down and returns to its original state, mainly silica sand.
- Packaging. We don't use external cartons for any of our products to reduce excess packaging. The note cards with every order are made from recycled 100% cotton t-shirts and the tissue paper used to wrap the products is acid free and fully recyclable. And absolutely no single-use plastic wrapping is used.
They also loved our bold and empowering mission of bringing greater clarity, authenticity and simplicity to skincare (read more about our story). By detailing a full ingredient list on the front label, you know exactly what you're putting on your skin. And by using only natural and organic, plant-based ingredients, you're nourishing your skin with the finest cold-pressed ingredients, rich in vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids to keep your skin healthy, soft and radiant.
