2020 was a year we’ll never forget for many reasons. Amid the world turning upside down, we strived to do what we do best: create freshly made beauty which does good at home and across the globe.
As you may know, Tropic has an Infinite Purpose, to help create a healthier, greener, and more empowered world. For 2021, we want to lay out how we’re continuing to be a force for good beyond beauty.
We’re investing more than ever in our formulations, and throughout the year will be improving the efficacy of fan favourites so they’re greater than ever before, using cutting-edge botanical actives. We’re also set to roll out our first COSMOS certified products – the ultimate certification of sustainable practices!
Building on our CarbonNeutral® initiatives, we’re going to make the UK a greener place, initiating exciting new eco projects. As we also continue to … Read the rest
It’s been quite a year. In a climate of concerning news cycles and a testing tier system, we wanted to focus on a few of the positive outcomes of the last twelve months. From fighting UK poverty with the Trussell Trust to protecting our oceans across the globe, it’s been quite the year for Tropic and its charity partnerships.
We’ve made so much progress on our journey towards achieving our Infinite Purpose – to help create a Healthier, Greener, more Empowered world – which wouldn’t have been possible without your support. In the face of adversity, we will always strive to be a force for good and a beacon of hope.
Each of Tropic’s powerful, natural ingredients is sustainably sourced from tropical destinations around the world such as Australia, Madagascar and Brazil, with people and planet at the forefront of our minds.
All formulations are lovingly created … Read the rest
It’s the little things you do that can ease the weight of the world’s waste. Tread the earth a little lighter with these top tips for going greener.
Phillipa, previously Editor of both Be Kind and Vegan Life magazines, has spread her sustainable wings and flown into freelance journalism with a focus on all things ethical and green.
We’re all aware of the perils of fast fashion, and as tempting as those bargains can seem, the impact of impulse purchases is significant. From the labour behind the label to water waste, microfibre pollution and its huge carbon footprint, it’s time to ditch fast fashion and start shopping smarter. Second-hand clothing is a wonderful way to indulge in some retail therapy while being a little more sustainable – as well as saving the energy used to create a new product, you can find yourself one-off pieces that … Read the rest
When temperatures drop, there are certain ingredients in our skincare routines that should be on the up.
There’s no denying that we Brits are obsessed with summer. We draw it out as long as possible, allowing its presence to impact plans, conversations and moods. From the shy whispers of sunshine on our first jumper-free day in April, all the way up to the final unexpected heatwave of September. It’s an ironic trait, considering we’re world-renowned for having summers that are – at the best of times – unpredictable.
Perhaps that’s exactly why though. A British summer is like the first sip of your favourite drink; delicious, tantalising and it always leaves you wanting more. We enjoy our first taste of heat, the kind that makes you dig out last year’s swimwear (only to wonder why you no longer have a set that matches) and has you pondering whether open water … Read the rest

Nearing the end of a very long twelve months, we look back at why ritual should be revered as the binding thread in the fabric of family and friendship.
The concept of tradition can seem confusing upon reflection. What does our birth date have to do with cake and candles? Why do we dress as vampires and ghouls on Halloween? Does Santa really enjoy those mince pies we leave out every year?
But as strange as tradition may seem to outsiders, we humans have used it to connect since the dawn of our species. Even in the most secular of societies, ceremonies and rituals allow people to communicate and bond over a shared idea, in a shared moment. Tradition means one thing in all of its forms – from coronating royalty to doing the haka before a rugby game, from India’s colourful Holi festival to raising a glass and toasting … Read the rest
The festive season is often a time for overconsumption and excess. Gifts are wrapped in copious amounts of wrapping paper, fancy ribbons tied in neat bows around packages, and this is often all parcelled up in a plastic and paper gift bag.
As many times as we remind friends and family that we’d be happy with some brown paper or an old newspaper, gift givers just can’t seem to get enough of O.T.T. wrapping and glitter galore. Well, thankfully some gift wraps are well within our control to recycle, upcycle and simply make the most of this season – empty Tropic packaging.
We’ve thrown together a few ideas that the HQ team have tried at home to give you a little inspiration for using your empties in 2021.
Use these as mini vases for all of your house plant offcuts or to create a colourful little plant … Read the rest
