Our Charity

 “For it is in giving that we receive...” St Francis of Assisi

The OneLove Foundation...

The OneLove Foundation is the philanthropic arm of PHB Ethical Beauty, which contributes a large portion of its profits to the Foundation.

We have created the OneLove Foundation based on the belief that it’s vital to share what we have, to help others and to care for the Earth. All people and creatures living on this earth are interrelated and dependant on each other. We all have the power to make a difference in the lives of others, and no act of kindness - no matter how small - ever goes to waste.

As a family we have been fortunate to establish a business that is enjoying success and we are realising a dream in being able to share that success with those who are less fortunate or who cannot defend themselves. Unlike many companies who give to charity merely as a PR exercise, we live and breathe this philosophy. We are motivated by making a difference in the world we live in.


 “The world has enough for everyone’s need but not everyone’s greed” Mahatma Gandhi


In April 2015 we decided to expand our vision as a compassionate company and announced that PHB Ethical Beauty would be donating 15% of net profits to charity to help improve the lives of people and animals in the UK and around the world. As of January 2016 we were able to increase this amount to 20% of our net profits.


“Our OneLove Foundation has started supporting the following wonderful charities since 2015. Each donation is made on behalf of Iris & Frank Gibbins and Irene March (Mom, Dad and Super Aunty Rene). We are forever grateful and you are always in our hearts… One Love.”
Sally Gibbins, Co-Founder of PHB Ethical Beauty.


Vision for Zambia 

Orbis/Vision for Zambia is an international charity that transforms lives by preventing and treating avoidable blindness. They have been working to save sight in Zambia since 2011, when they established the country’s first children’s eye care centre in Kitwe.

Sense 

Sense are a national charity that supports and campaigns for children and adults who are deaf-blind or have sensory impairments. Their ‘TouchBase’ project has been built in the heart of Selly Oak, Birmingham. The TouchBase centre will serve the nation as a location where Sense can deliver its support services for people who are deaf-blind, and for those with other complex needs. We can’t wait to see the space during their open days in Auguest and can’t wait to see it open to the public in September 2017. Visit www.letsbuildtouchbase.org or www.sense.org.uk to donate.

FARS

The Farming Animal Rescue Sanctuary (FARS) is doing incredible things for animals in need. Their mission, as a non-profit organisation, is to continue to rescue, nurture and provide safe shelter and refuge for animals that have been subject to violent cruelty, badly injured from poorly designed transporters, saved from the horrendous Live Export Trade or simply brought in by owners who can no longer care for them. We’re asking you to join us in supporting this amazing place and help give a future of love and life to these innocent, conscious and beautiful animals! These guys are on the front line fighting the battle that defenceless animals can’t! Visit www.farmanimalrescuesanctuary.org.uk/ways-to-help

How PHB is making a difference! 

"We want to show that successful businesses can be run in an ethical way. At the heart of our business is a desire to serve and benefit people and the planet, rather than a desire to make profit."  Rose Brown, CEO of PHB Ethical Beauty.


We are so pleased to have the opportunity to spread Love and Consciousness in the following ways through our business PHB Ethical Beauty:

Our products are Cruelty free:

Animal testing by cosmetics companies is ugly business. Worldwide millions of innocent animals suffer from these cruel and deadly testing procedures. In some countries like China and America animal testing is rife and is big business. Some companies claim not to test on animals in Europe and yet are happy to sell their products in China where legally products must be tested on animals before they can be sold there. There are also some companies, such as The Body Shop, who claim not to test on animals but fail to mention they are owned by L’Oreal who still test on thousands of helpless animals each year.


By choosing our cruelty free beauty products you are helping put an end to Animal Testing and the unnecessary suffering this causes. There is nothing beautiful about taking part in the torture and caging of animals. By supporting companies that fight against testing on animals and refusing to purchase from companies that do you will help put an end to this awful practice.

Our products are Vegan:


As a compassionate company, we strongly oppose the use of any animal derived ingredients in beauty products. Animal fats and crushed insects are commonly found in mainstream beauty products and in lots of natural and organic beauty products too. Many 'cruelty free' companies still use animal derived ingredients, and many companies who provide some vegan certified products still use animal ingredients in their ranges.


It’s important to show companies that continue to use these kinds of ingredients that we’re aware of these practices and don’t find it acceptable. By vocally demanding they stop and by choosing to purchase products from companies that only use ethical ingredients we can power a change that will encourage compassion and make a huge difference to the world we live in.

Natural and Conscious Ingredients:


We love hand making products using only the safest, purest and ethically harvested natural ingredients. Just like our bodies need healthy natural food, we know skin loves to be nourished by natures purest ingredients, which restore balance and harmony to get skin looking its best. Our products contain no alcohols and no harmful chemicals.


Many of the ingredients knowingly used in the cosmetics industry have a detrimental effect on our skin and our overall health & wellbeing. Many commonly used ingredients are well documented for their links to causing cancer and other major health problems.

Up to 60% of what goes on to skin goes into skin. Therefore, all products made by PHB are handmade using 100% naturally derived ingredients that are proven to be safe and effectiveClick here to view our ingredients policy, and find out more about the ingredients we do & don't use.  


People over machinery!

All our products are made by hand. They are blended, filled and labelled by hand. Most companies would use machinery for this. We feel the fact that these processes are done by hand means that each product is made with extra loving care and with greater attention to detail ensuring the highest quality product result. Many companies like to use machinery to get costs as low as possible. As we continue to grow, we want to create more and more job opportunities, therefore creating employment for people to help assist us in these unique hand-made processes.


No Palm Oil!

Palm oil is a type of edible vegetable oil produced in Africa, Asia and South America. It is used prolifically in the food and cosmetics industries. An astounding 85% of the Palm oil produced globally comes from Indonesia and Malaysia. This industry causes devastation and deforestation, habitat degradation, climate change, animal cruelty and indigenous rights abuses in the places it’s produced. It’s simply WRONG. All PHB products are free from Palm Oil and we are raising awareness about this issue as we want to encourage others to stop using this harmful ingredient.

Eco Friendly:

We care about the beautiful Earth we inhabit! We use eco-friendly packaging that comes from post-consumer recycled sources. Much of our packaging is 100% recyclable, including our Aluminium lids and bottles, PET Bottles and Glass Jars. We ask that you recycle your PHB packaging and do your bit to help the planet


Protecting our Oceans:

We are against the use of plastic micro-beads found in most body scrubs and facial exfoliators. These micro-plastics are non-biodegradable and contaminate the waters of our oceans. They are also often mistaken for food by marine life who are poisoned when they eat them. Also, we do not use harmful detergents in our body and hair care products which pollute the environment when washed down our drains. 


Ethical Sourcing & Supporting Fair Trade:

We research endlessly the finest and most beneficial natural ingredients to blend with our organic produce and creating effective and ethical beauty products is our passion. 

Some of our Ethically Harvested Ingredients: The Minerals in our cosmetics are sourced from India where they are mined ethically. The owners of the mine help to fund schools and daycare centers to help improve the quality of life for their employees. The Organic Shea Butter in our cosmetics comes from a women's Co-op in West Africa.
