Five Dot Botanics are a radical skincare company that make minimal ingredient plant-based skincare for those who want fewer and better ingredients in their skincare products.

There are only five ingredients in each product – all are natural extracts from plants, seeds, nuts, flowers and select botanical extracts that have proven benefits for the skin.

Five Dot Botanics is based in London and was created by Zaffrin and Brian to offer proof that effective skincare can be formulated with minimal ingredients. Their aim is to offer total transparency, clarity and control over the ingredients that go on your skin. Their entire range is certified vegan.

Additionally, the packing peanuts they use to protect your Five Dot Botanics order are made from starch and 100% biodegradable. They can be reused or added to your compost heap (wet or dry) safe in the knowledge that they will break down. If you want to test it yourself, place them in a bowl of water and see how quickly they disintegrate!
