‘Conscious beauty and wellbeing’ panel discussion

by | Sep 10, 2019

The convergence of beauty, health and wellbeing is a clear industry trend. It’s no longer enough to look good. Consumers want products that make them feel good as well – physically and emotionally.

Finishing an action-packed London Beauty Week, we’ve brought together an inspirational group of women to talk about conscious beauty and wellbeing.

Hosted by Funmi Fetto from Glamour magazine, our panel features Jasmine Hemsley, Sjaniël Turrell, Susie Willis and Rhian Stephenson.

As people become more aware of how our modern lifestyle impacts our health and the world around us, they are increasingly conscious of how they spend their money.

Conscious beauty is about recognising what matters to you – whether it’s organic ingredients, vegan-friendly formulas or zero-waste packaging – then seeking out brands that align with those values.

Book your ticket today to learn more about the future of conscious beauty and wellbeing.

The event takes place on September 15 at the London Beauty Week Hub at 13-14 Floral Street in Covent Garden. Doors at 3:30pm with panel discussion from 4-5pm.

100% of the ticket price will go to Beauty Banks, a non-profit that redistributes personal care and beauty products to help fight hygiene poverty. You will also be able to bring your product donations on the day.
