The zero-mile concept is going beauty. Just like the farm-to-table concept relating to food, beauty is adopting the ethos and ensuring every step of the supply chain is local. This means growing, formulating, manufacturing and packaging all in one place, wherever possible. Lyonsleaf, The Republic of Natural Skincare, has employed the concept since opening, growing some of its ingredients on its Somerset-based family farm. Founders Ben and Vicky Lyons are committed to creating affordable, natural and active skincare with sustainability at the forefront of their minds. Vicky says, "Our products are 100% recyclable – we've even switched to using paper packing tape. We try to produce as little waste as possible and any we do produce is virtually all recycled. We're proud that nothing from the business goes into landfill."

Somerset recently saw the launch of Transformations, a new luxury day spa, based in the idyllic Dillington Estate on the outskirts of Illminster. Making the most of the Covid lockdown break for the beauty industry, owner Kerry Hole-Stuart relocated and rebranded from her previous location in Illminster town, launching the luxurious Transformations and opening its doors to those seeking hair, beauty and aesthetics treatments. Kerry's goal from the outset of owning her own salon was to provide her clients with a relaxing environment perfectly suited to pure indulgence. Utilising the new location she was able to take this to the next level with the new day spa – somewhere her clients can receive superior treatments and top to toe relaxation for both men and women alike.

Katie Robotham is the owner of Say Yes Bridal Stylist, a cruelty free and vegan-friendly bridal and event hair styling service in and around the Cotswolds. We catch up with her about making sustainable choices when it comes to big-day beauty. She tells us, "If sustainability is important to you, there are many bridal hair and make-up businesses who, like myself, have chosen to try and reduce their environmental impact. By making simple changes like using disposable and biodegradable towels, recyclable products including face masks and recycled packaging, it's the small things that have a bigger impact."
