Our Story

We created GSB as an easy and inspiring way to shop for the world's best and emerging independent all natural beauty brands. 

There are so many safe, natural and sustainable choices we can make in respect of our beauty habits, without compromising the high standards we expect from luxury brands - but it's not always clear what they are.

So we've done the research, so you don’t have to. All our GSB Approved brands and their products are of 100% natural origin, only ever tested on people, use high quality fair trade and certified organic ingredients where possible - and always toxic free.

Philosophy

Our philosophy at GSB is simple: Love, Cherish, Protect.

We want you to LOVE, and be comfortable in your own skin. We CHERISH life and say no to animal testing and cruelty. We want to PROTECT our planet and support sustainably and ethically sourced and made brands wherever possible.

GSB Approved

Our skin is our largest organ and is highly absorbent, and certainly deserves our utmost attention and care. So take back control of your skin. Start by understanding what you are putting on it, and learning what works for you. This means making informed choices with your beauty products, and paying attention to how your skin reacts. 

Testing and learning about beauty products can be fun, rewarding and safe - and you won’t be alone! Read our product descriptions to learn why an item has been GSB Approved, each ingredient in it, instructions for use, as well as product reviews by GSB Members.

Think of our blog, The Essential, as your natural beauty toolkit.
