Products and Ingredients

Molton Brown’s product philosophy has always been to link the purest plant and mineral extracts with the power of Natural Sciences to unleash their full potency and benefits through our skin, hair and body care products.

We endeavour to use as many naturally derived ingredients as possible, sourced from sustainable sources around the world.

All Molton Brown formulations are biodegradable and 100% Vegan.

We will not mislead our consumers by implying that our naturally derived or natural ingredients equate to a totally natural product and, although many of our ingredients are derived from ‘organic’ sources, our products are not 100% natural or 100% organic.

From 2007, we began reviewing all formulations to utilize more natural preservative systems for all new product development, thus replacing the use of parabens.

Molton Brown only uses preservatives that are safe, mild and legally allowed in cosmetic products worldwide. These preservatives are necessary and included to prevent product deterioration and help ensure that products are safe to use and ultimately deliver on our benefit promise.

New technology has been implemented to separate and recycle materials used in the manufacturing process.

Molton Brown employs a full time position that focuses solely on health and safety with continued focus on addressing environmental concerns and opportunities within our manufacturing facility.

This is accomplished through our participation in the EU’s Green DOT Program which originated in Germany in 1991.This symbol on packaging identifies to consumers that our product packaging is recyclable and is part of the DSD Collection/Sorting Process throughout the EU.

Molton Brown’s iconic bottles are made of PET 1, the most environmentally friendly plastic, and are fully recyclable.
