PIONEERING SKINCARE. REGENERATIVE BY DESIGN.

FAQ

WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR?

Quality skincare that gives salvaged natural ingredients a new lease of life. We'll never compromise on our mission to leave the world better than we found it. That's the UpCircle promise.  

WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM?

Back in 2015, we had a thought: 

If we're throwing away a cafetière full of coffee grounds every morning, how much is going to waste from coffee shops all over London?  A lot, as it turns out.  So we decided to do something about it. We needed a way to give those coffee grounds a new lease of life. And UpCircle was born.

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS VEGAN AND CRUELTY-FREE?

We believe all life is sacred. That's why we use only the finest plant-based ingredients, and never test on animals.

WHERE ARE YOUR PRODUCTS MADE?

We're proud to say all our products are made in the UK.

WERE YOU PREVIOUSLY CALLED OPTIAT?

Yes! We started life as Optiat. However, we soon came to outgrow that initial vision and as part of our continuous brand development process, we evolved... Our ambition is to have an UpCircle product in every home and we felt this would be most achievable with a more unified and holistic approach. We took our learnings from Optiat and built on them to create UpCircle.

We stand for all round better skincare by elevating leftover natural ingredients and bringing them back to life as beauty products your skin will love.

IS YOUR PACKAGING RECYCLABLE?

Yes, the packaging for every UpCircle product is fully recyclable.
