Harry & Rose ingredients

Ingredients Glossary

We strive to use the best natural ingredients possible and we aim to source these with the highest standards of safety and quality in mind. Some of our ingredients are natural and plant-derived. Preservation of natural formulas can be very challenging and we found that some natural preservatives simply aren’t effective in some formulas, so we wanted to ensure the safety and efficacy of our products across our range. We follow all safety assessments and we DO NOT test our products on animals. We share this information transparently as we know this is a key factor in any product purchase decision.
