14 of the Best Tropic Skincare Products, According to Our Editors
Tropic Skincare — the natural, cruelty-free, and quite affordable direct-to-consumer brand — has changed my mind about vegan beauty. As someone who is all for lasers, acids, and chemical peels, the words "clean" and "natural" haven't really been at the top of my agenda when it comes to skin care. (In fact, sometimes it's even a turnoff for me.) But Tropic, which is made fresh in a rather large Surrey kitchen, is not just good for the environment, it's been really good for my skin as well — shifting my whole mentality on the natural beauty category.
Tropic is based on a direct sales ambassador programme, founded by Susie Ma. The brand lives and breathes by what it refers to as "green science innovation," which is applied to every aspect of the business — from the vegan and sustainably sourced ingredients (which they get from areas like the Amazon rainforest and Australia), to the recyclable packaging (even the packing material in the shipping boxes can be recycled), and on top of that, the actual production of the products. The company is now certified carbon-neutral, which means the carbon emissions caused by Tropic have been balanced out by its efforts in environmental projects elsewhere in the world.
In my opinion, the brand does all of this without compromising on quality. I always see great results with the skin care and thoroughly enjoy using the masks and oils in particular. Tropic is constantly innovating to come up with affordable beauty tools, such as the scalp massager, which doubles as the best shower accessory.
But like a lot of brands, there are a lot of products to choose from, which often aren't super cheap. To take the time and guesswork out of reading reviews (there are hundreds and all are singing the praises of each product), we've rounded up 11 of our editors' absolute favourite Tropic Skincare products that we urge you to try for yourself.
