SBTRCT: A Sustainable Skincare Range That Comes In Solid Bars

SBTRCT: solid, sustainable skincare bars. The range includes: cleansers, balms, and serums. Make a difference, WITHOUT compromising on skin, quality, or design.

SBTRCT was born out of Ben Grace’s sustainable drive, as well as his minimalistic desire to create the highest-performing skincare products on the market, – with the lowest environmental waste. This unique range of award-winning solid skincare bars – use the very best proven ingredients, resulting in the very best skin.

SBTRCT addresses the three biggest environmental challenges facing the beauty industry right now:

  1. Plastic pollution,
  2. Water waste, and:
  3. The over-reliance on palm oil.

The products are 100% plastic-free – with domestically compostable packaging, ZERO palm oil, and nominal water content. The range (which is also cruelty-free and vegan-friendly) consists of cleansers, moisturisers, and serums, including two world firsts: the Rejuvenating Night Balm (the first solid retinoid), and the Vitamin C Booster (the first solid vitamin C serum).

SBTRCT was founded by Ben Grace, who possesses twenty+ years of award-winning experience in the skincare and fragrance industries. He was previously the MD of Bulldog Skincare, and he boasts a long legacy of building disruptive brands. His passion lies in sustainability, product innovation, and design.

When I set about creating SBTRCT, it seemed ironic to me that an industry created to cleanse and care – was still making our planet a dirty place, and having such a disastrous impact on the environment,” said Bell.
