    We would love to add Nakin to this list as our British skincare has been developed to be the best available. Our stunning natural skincare is formulated with highly effective plant actives, like Hyaluronic Acid, Hibiscus and Pomegranate. Find out more at http://www.nakinskincare.com

    • Wendy Gardner on July 15, 2021 at 3:32 pm

      I am a big fan of Hyaluronic Acid, Hibiscus and Pomegranate too ! Also Sea Fennel and Argan. My skin drinks them up.

  2. Barbara Remmers on August 11, 2019 at 7:50 am

    Lovely products but are they easy to buy, I’ve only seen Neals Yard. I’ve used Clarins for years now time to buy British for sure. Don’t get into City centres much so probably why I haven’t seen them

  3. Rachel on April 14, 2020 at 4:44 pm

    Wouldn’t it b lovely to donate some products especially hand & face creams to our wonderful NHS staff & hospitals? X

    • Make it British Make it British on April 21, 2020 at 7:21 am

      Agreed. We will contact some of these brands and see if they can help

  4. P Lockwood on June 2, 2020 at 9:16 am

    I love Mayka products. They are all natural, made in the UK and cost half less than the other brands.

  5. Sharon English on July 9, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    I have been using shampoo bars and soaps from the excellent ‘The Good Soap – Back to the Bar’,based in Llandudno.

    Also Dajan beautiful beauty products, from Bolton.

    You may like to contact them and add them to your list.

  6. Julia Watsica on September 21, 2020 at 9:00 am

    You are providing here some very helpful and informative information about beauty care. Thank you so much for your post.

  7. Lesley Jones on December 12, 2020 at 11:11 am

    So very happy that this website exists. Like a lot of people in UK we will all want to buy British, if we can, from now on! Thank you

  8. Doris Rainford on January 26, 2021 at 10:39 am

    Will look at buying from “British-made” companies from now on to help our country and the inventive people . Lets hope more companies will take on apprentices to help the unemployed.

  9. Judi Paxton on February 14, 2021 at 4:28 pm

    It’s great that so many of us now want to Buy British. Hopefully, we can help our economy and support our own business by buying things that are better than their overseas competitors AND save the environment

  10. Mrs H O'Ryan on March 12, 2021 at 7:59 pm

    Hi 🙂

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can we have some British make up brands ( I don’t mean skin care & fragrances) I mean make as in lipsticks,foundations,blusher etc etc.That fonts into middle of Rd prices without compromise on quality both in the product & its packaging This doesn’t have to be ostentatious or pretentious but honest excellent quality at fair prices.I use The Ordinary skincare & bare minerals cosmetics as an example.
    Im desperately trying g to buy & use British make up but it seems impossible to source any.This is a MASSIVE MASSIVE gap in the British market & it needs pushing & marketing & without anything political attached to its market.Thank you

    • Helen Snell on July 29, 2021 at 3:15 pm

      Barry M products are made in the UK. Just up the road from me in Mill Hill North London!

      • Make it British Make it British on August 2, 2021 at 12:34 pm

        Hi Helen
        Well I never knew that! and I used to be a big Barry M fan when I was a teenager in the ’80s

  11. Mrs Susan Graves on March 17, 2021 at 10:21 am

    Many thanks for compiling such a list, please add as many as possible. So tired of picking things up and seeing “made in china” label. Some products from there have been proven to either animal test or contain dubious ingredients. Alot of countries don’t have the same standards as ours. Just ordered my first purchase from Evolve. Post Brexit/pandemic we need to support as many homegrown companies and jobs as possible.

  12. Pam Land on July 29, 2021 at 12:52 pm

    Thank you for featuring our Natural Soap and Skincare brand on your page. I’m literally doing a little dance! I set up our business in April 2020 under lockdown so every like, comment or share really does make our day! x

  13. Cathy McCloud on September 20, 2021 at 1:36 pm

    After receiving some as a gift a year ago, my family has been using the natural hair and body products from the The Solid Bar Company based in Oxfordshire – like many other of your readers we had become increasingly frustrated at the chemical ridden an/or made in China options found in shops.

    From our point of view the best things about these, apart from being made here in the UK, is that they are all-natural, 100% vegan, palm oil free and cruelty free and they do what they say!

    You have a great initiative here as people are gradually realising that home-grown is best in so many ways. So well worth adding this company to your listings, over to you.
