REN Clean Skincare was founded in 2000 by Rob Calcraft and Anthony Buck in East London. The inspiration for REN came after Buck’s wife couldn’t find any clean skincare with natural ingredients to soothe her reactive skin during pregnancy. 22 years later, their natural origin skincare is enjoyed worldwide; REN’s gentle, plant-friendly formulas and their promise to never compromise your skin barrier lie at the heart of their success.
In 2018, REN pledged to become the first Zero Waste beauty brand by the end of 2021; part of this pledge was to only produce recycled, recyclable or reusable packaging. *Spoiler alert!* They accomplished their goal. They’ve now partnered with planet-focused bodies, like Planet Patrol and Surfrider Foundation, to positively impact the planet and reduce their carbon footprint. Their new goal? 100% biodegradability by 2030.
