Could we be more excited to hear that London’s famous salon URBAN RETREAT has recently launched a unique luxury make-up collection?

URBAN RETREAT’S vegan Skin-Sync Mineral Makeup range is designed to not only make your skin look good but actually do good to the skin too. It contains no nasties and boasts a wealth of botanical and good-for-skin ingredients in each product. Make-up so pure, you’ll forget you’re wearing any at all!

The company uses ethically sourced active ingredients from plants, algae, and the sea, which are all carefully selected not only for their efficacy but also for their origin and safety.

The brand new product packaging and postal boxes are now made from recycled kraft paper. Recycled kraft paper is made from recycled materials. Cardboard boxes, books and other materials are broken down back into pulp and turned back into recyclable brown paper.

The brand also offers an eco-refill on a large selection of our products. Meaning that all Urban Retreat’s packaging can be safely washed and either recycled, composted or refilled.

Founded in 1993 by Hair and Beauty entrepreneur George Hammer, URBAN RETREAT started as a Spa, Hair and Beauty service provider within the UK Aveda business. Following the sale of Aveda to the Estée Lauder Companies, Hammer relocated URBAN RETREAT into the Harrods department store in 2000, as the store’s exclusive spa operator. 20 years later URBAN RETREAT has found a new home at The White House 2-4 Hans Crescent, a former aristocrats mansion in the heart of Knightsbridge.

Acti-Labs has now acquired the product trademark URBAN RETREAT and entered a collaboration partnership with ‘The White House London’ who specialise in Professional Beauty and Wellness services, located just 50 metres from Harrods. URBAN RETREAT is the company’s first flagship location where the products are used by professional aestheticians, MUA’s, dermatologists, and doctors whilst the online shop and network of Beauty Consultants ‘bring the Spa directly to customer’s homes’.
