We’ve Found The Best Thing To Happen To Your Skin Barrier

Pure, potent and proven. This is the promise behind True Botanicals – the latest skin care brand to launch here at Cult Beauty. 


A label on a mission to protect both our planet and skin, True Botanicals exclusively formulates ingredients that strengthen your protective barrier to help you achieve your glowiest complexion yet. It’s known for ethically sourcing the highest quality ingredients, without any toxins or fillers – ever. Powered by natural or nature-identical ingredients, the brand’s collections fuse everything from plant-derived peptides (known for their nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids) and antioxidant-rich oils to soothing ceramides and a myriad of other natural extracts. They’re also made up of small molecules, so that the skin can easily absorb and use them. What does this mean exactly? For starters, each formula is hypoallergenic and non-irritating (sensitive skin types, we’re looking at you) and every scoop, spritz and slather is a sensorial, indulgent experience that will transport you to natural landscapes.  


Another fun fact? We’re extremely excited to announce that True Botanicals is launching with Cult Conscious Proof Points! As part of our long-term commitment to encourage transparency in the beauty industry, our third-party partner Provenance has performed extensive due diligence on the brand’s impact claims. With that, we can now confirm that the brand is Leaping Bunny-approved and PETA Cruelty-Free and Vegan. So, you can rest assured that True Botanicals treats our planet's inhabitants with equal respect, going above and beyond the UK's minimum standards to lead beauty into a more ethical, kind space. Furthermore, each product passes rigorous testing to ensure it’s 100% cruelty-free and doesn't encounter any animal products during its manufacturing process.   


If you’re looking to strengthen your skin barrier, look no further than this five-step routine courtesy of True Botanicals: 



Free from sulfates, perfumes and synthetic fragrances (the most common skin barrier offenders), the CALM Ginger Turmeric Cleansing Balm is a nourishing and supportive cleanser. Laced with a refreshing blend of yucca extract, turmeric, and avocado butters, it’s primed to effectively remove make up, sunscreen, dirt, and other impurities, whilst lactic acid and azelaic acid gently exfoliate to reveal a brighter glow. Oh, and it’s also naturally scented with ginger root, mandarin, and neroli oils – if we close our eyes, we can almost smell the freshness. 


After cleansing, use the RENEW Microbiome Enzyme Essence. Powered by active prebiotics, this formula nourishes your skin’s good bacteria to reveal a baby soft, illuminated complexion. It also feeds your complexion with the highest quality hydrating botanicals, while providing resurfacing benefits with nature’s most gentle yet effective AHAs and enzymes – we're talking wild-sourced finger lime, biocompatible papaya and pineapple. Plus, with a refreshingly light ginger scent, it will feel like a spa experience.

Designed to support your skin barrier and fight outside aggressors, RENEW Chebula Active Serum leaves skin feeling hydrated and radiant. As its name suggests, it’s infused with chebula – an ayurvedic fruit that features the most bioactive antioxidants in nature – to help minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even your skin tone and smooth roughness, while enhancing firmer and brighter skin. 


The brand’s bestselling, award-winning face oil, RENEW Pure Radiance Oil, works to strengthen your skin barrier. Boasting a potent blend of Omega 3 fatty acids (set to replenish your skin barrier), 14 easily absorbable seed oils, algae extract and astaxanthin, it helps to deliver hydrated, visibly plump - skin. Oh, and did we mention, it’s naturally scented with sweet jasmine, neroli, and rose, too?

Finally, slather on the Chebula Extreme Cream, a first-of-its-kind formula that deeply moisturises. Utilising chebula, a breakthrough, bioactive antioxidant, this supercharged cream delivers an extreme burst of hydration. Not to mention, it’s formulated without pore-clogging waxes, allowing its ingredients to sink deep into the skin to nourish, moisturise and help strengthen your protective barrier.
