About Stript Cosmetics

Welcome to Stript Cosmetics – 100% plastic-free cosmetics.

The beauty industry is not doing enough to tackle the problem of plastic pollution, and it is our mission to produce ‘stripped’ skincare and make-up that is free from unnecessary plastic packaging.

A huge amount of packaging is produced by make-up and skincare companies – 120 billion units across the globe to be precise. Packaging is the number one contributor to plastic production in the world and in 2015, research found that packaging accounted for 146 million tonnes of plastic every year. Most people don’t think twice when buying make-up products, but did you know that most cosmetics packaging can’t be recycled?

Here at Stript, we produce cosmetics in compostable, biodegradable, 100% recyclable or reusable packaging – it’s never been easier to say goodbye to plastic waste in make-up!


Our History

Hi, I’m Becky and I’m the founder of Stript Cosmetics. My addiction to cosmetics started at the age of 13(ish) when I started making my own lip balms for friends in my Mom’s kitchen. Roll on to my twenties, with a degree, years working for a high street cosmetics retailer and a new job in marketing under my belt, the cosmetics addiction was still strong and I was sampling every product I could.

But a problem soon emerged. I was getting fed up with the ever-growing mountain of plastic bottles I had in my bathroom and, with the new laws about charging for plastic-bags along with emerging media coverage of the plastic pollution problem, I realised that most of this packaging would end up in landfill. I decided to make the change and go for plastic-free beauty products.

It was this active change of lifestyle that led me to discover the shocking number of single-use plastics used in the beauty industry, and how easy it was to fall victim to greenwashing tactics of some leading beauty brands. I had to do something about it. With a mission to create affordable, completely plastic-free cosmetics, Stript Cosmetics was born!

What we’ve achieved so far…

  • Crowdfunded over £2,000 to fund a line of plastic-free colour cosmetics, including lipsticks and eyeshadow.
  • Created a range of bath and body care products that are 100% free of wasteful plastic packaging.
  • We’re planting trees! We pay for a tree to be planted with every order you make.
  • Built a community of planet loving cosmetics addicts!
