Careers at UpCircle Beauty

At UpCircle, we make sustainable skincare products from ingredients that would otherwise be discarded. We're doing things differently and are now known as the pioneers of "by-product beauty" or "circular skincare". When we discovered that more than 500,000 tonnes of coffee grounds that are consumed each year in the UK alone are sent to landfill, we decided to start collecting coffee from cafes across London and transforming them into skincare products. Since launching UpCircle has saved over 400 tonnes of used coffee. We also repurpose more than ten other by-product ingredients from varied industries, including the argan, tea, juice, date, olive and wood industries. We're backed by dermatologists and celebrities and are certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny. We also remove more ocean-bound plastic than we create as a business, paying the wages of waste-workers in India. We're proud to be the UK's #1 upcycled skincare brand.

Escape's take on UpCircle Beauty

UpCircle Beauty are the only brand to scale up repurposing wasted ingredients which can make our skin healthier and more radiant – like used coffee grounds, fruit stones and brewed chai tea spices - into skincare formulations. Why should all that good stuff go to waste? It shouldn’t. That’s why UpCircle elevate leftover natural ingredients, bringing them back to life as beauty products your skin will love. There are so few beauty brands really making an impact on the planet, this is what makes UpCirlce really stand out. One employee review said 'Working at UpCircle Beauty is truly amazing. It's a workplace that values inclusivity, has a young and energetic team, and offers a lot of flexibility.' Need we say more?
