Skincare is a crowded market, and ‘natural’ is the new “normal”. Each product in Upcircles range sources and rescues by-products from other industries – the food and drink industry in particular. In recent years there has been a dramatic rise of natural, then organic, then vegan and cruelty-free beauty, but Upcircle believe circular / by-product beauty will be the next step.

So, basically Pastificio Carleschi is an artisan dry pasta manufacturer that focuses on quality and sustainability. Their vision is to sustainably produce dry pasta using grains and flour sourced locally. They are the first and only British artisan producer of organic dry pasta made with British stoneground flour from ancient wheat varieties (Spelt, Emmer and Einkorn). As well as quality, they focus on sustainability by powering pasta production with green energy only, packaging pasta in plastic-free bags (certified by APP) suitable for home and industrial composting and marine biodegradability, and supporting the zero waste movement by producing wholegrain pasta and directly supplying bulk shops across the UK. And more.
Iris has exclusively produced organic products from its beginning and have planted many hedges and rows of trees to surround the fields that we cultivate, the irrigation ditches are naturalized, allowing insects and amphibians to breed. Their pasta manufacturing plant is certified eco-friendly. Made with materials such as wood, steel, glass, hemp and clay tiles baked in local kilns. The entire plant is powered by renewable energy; the roof was covered with photovoltaic panels, that together with the Hanging Gardens, contribute to the insulation of the building.
Created by an holistic therapist, reiki master and fully qualified IFPA Clinical Aromatherapist. An individual who is absolutely besotted with all things reiki and aromatherapy. As a reiki practitioner and aromatherapist Gemma continually explore ways in which she can fuse these practices together, to create bespoke experiences for each client that comes through my door. Whilst Gemma has always created bespoke blends, 2020 has given her an opportunity to explore this more deeply. She has been using her skills and knowledge of Aromatherapy and the chakras to create balancing blends aimed to support the mind, body and soul. When clients and customers began to reach out for products for home use, she noticed that three key concerns were arising: tiredness and mental fatigue, irritability and ‘mind fog’ and most commonly of all irregular sleeping patterns which was to be expected considering all of the uncertainty we have been experiencing.
