The UK’s most loved natural & organic skin care brand

The original organic beauty brand, Green People came to life in 1997 and has championed clean beauty ever since. Green People has never wavered from its eco-friendly ethos and here we reveal what you can expect from its pioneering range of planet-friendly products.


Green People is an organic beauty brand that was established in 1997 and was one of the first UK beauty brands to achieve certified organic status. This guarantees that their products are made with pure, organically farmed ingredients that nurture the skin without spoiling the soil for future generations.

To maintain its special certified organic status, every ingredient and packaging material used by Green People is checked and verified as being ethical, eco and naturally effective.


Green People is an organic skin care brand with an exceptional eco-friendly ethos. It is dedicated to creating products that are:

· Certified organic or natural · Certified vegetarian or vegan · Cruelty free · Sustainably sourced


Whilst Green People is a UK brand, its founder, Charlotte Vøhtz, is Danish. Her Nordic upbringing is reflected in the product’s pure formulations and the brand’s minimalist, eco-friendly packaging.


As an organic skin care brand Green People is committed to preserving the soil and the planet for future generations. Green People refuses to compromise its ethics for profit and many of its sustainably-sourced ingredients are fairly traded. Green People’s packaging materials are low waste and when it is not practical to use glass packaging, they use either recyclable plastic or squeezy tubes made from sustainable sugar cane.

Green People’s use of by-product ingredients further ensures that their skin care solutions are low waste. Staunchly opposed to microbeads, Green People successfully campaigned to have microbeads removed from rinse-off beauty products and does not use microbeads in its Volumising Mascara. Instead it uses cellulose microspheres that lengthens lashes.

As for its natural sun care collection, only reef-safe ingredients are used and each time a full size bottle of its flagship SPF30 (£24) sun cream is sold, Green People donates to its long-standing marine conservation charity partner.


With 23 years of skin care expertise under its belts, Green People has an impressive portfolio of more than 150 products including skin care for teens, men’s grooming products and a signature Age Defy+ range.

Experts in sensitive skin, many of its eczema-friendly products are scent free and all are made without skin-drying alcohols and harsh SLS foaming actives.

Its commitment to clinically proven actives and plant-based extracts has ensured its trusted products have stood the test of time. Discover Green People’s greatest hits and shop the full range.


Their Nordic Roots range plays homage to their founder’s Danish heritage. This scent-free skin care collection is packed with Scandinavian-sourced plant actives and has a biodegradable grass pulp outer packaging which reflects Denmark’s status as one of the greenest countries on earth.

Actives used in this Scandi-inspired skin care range work in tandem to protect against skin-drying northerly winds and the 4-piece collection is ideal for layering during the colder months of the year. Green People’s Nordic Roots range includes:

Nordic Roots Hyaluronic Booster Serum

This scent-free, non-sticky facial serum blends intensely hydrating Hyaluronic acid with Hop Flowers which target hyper-pigmentation. A true hydration hero, this silky serum helps skin to retain the moisture it needs to stay plump and pillowy.

Nordic Roots Marine Facial Oil

The Atlantic Seaweed used in this scent-free facial oil gently envelops the skin in collagen-boosting nutrients.

Nordic Roots Cranberry Micellar Foam Cleanser

This clever cleansing innovation is free from SLS and enriched with make-up dissolving Micelles. Just a few pumps of this fluffy foam is enough to cleanse make-up and dirt away with a water-like touch that won’t cause skin irritation.

Nordic Roots Apple Complex Moisturiser

The skin-calming moisturiser is bursting with natural fruit goodness and delivers a burst of hydrating, vitamin-rich fruit water to skin that’s dry or showing the first signs of ageing.
