Health and beauty go hand in hand, and you can never be too careful with both. But, unfortunately, the beauty industry is filled with products and ingredients that are slowly poisoning our bodies. So, even when you’re eating right, you must ensure you’re using the right products on your body.

Ekspresyon Naturel is a sustainable, cruelty-free natural skincare brand based in the UK, providing toxin-free skincare products for its consumers. The beauty brand was founded by certified organic skincare formulator Myrlande Holborough, who is extremely passionate about natural skincare.

Ekspresyon Naturel products were formulated to provide high-quality, effective products to nourish, protect and rejuvenate the skin.


The Natural Way

The Sustainable Way!

Living sustainably means making choices that have less of an impact on the environment and human livelihoods. For example, sustainable skincare is essentially choosing products that will meet our skin and beauty needs without harshly impacting the environment or the safety of humans.

We all want to make good product choices for the environment and ourselves. It can be overwhelming to think of all the potential impacts, the certifications you should follow and the ingredients lists. But it doesn’t have to be challenging to build a sustainable skincare routine.

With Ekspresyon Naturel, its products are toxin-free, vegan and cruelty-free. Additionally, Myrlande prides herself on making her products naturally.

From the packaging to the carefully selected botanical ingredients, Ekspresyon Naturel is a brand that believes in the power of naturally derived skincare products.


Plant-based Benefits

Vegan products aren’t just kinder to animals; they’re often kinder to hair and skin as well. It’s a little-known fact that much of what we put on the skin is absorbed into the body. So if the idea of rubbing uric acid from cows into your pores doesn’t make you shudder, then know that the alternatives are far softer and especially great for sensitive skin. In addition, vegan skincare products generally contain fewer ingredients that are likely to irritate or aggravate any skin conditions.

Healing Skin the Natural Way

Myrlande and her family are living proof of the excellent benefits derived from plant-based ingredients.

After experiencing skin problems linked to two years of antibiotics due to complications from three heart surgeries and her daughter’s painful eczema, Myrlande was determined to find a natural solution. So she spent several years formulating her plant-based creams to heal her daughter’s skin and tackle some of the skin issues she faced.

Eventually, Myrlande and other parents noticed a significant difference in the condition of her daughter’s skin.


The Start of Something Great

After years of experimentation and official qualifications in organic skincare formulation, Myrlande launched Ekspresyon Naturel. Myrlande adopted the Haitian Creole words Ekspresyon and Naturel, which translates as Natural Expression, to showcase her Haitian roots and the very core of her brand to the world as a proud Haitian.

The brand produces a simple range of clean skincare products, such as the Eklere Facial Serum, that will leave your skin glowing, refreshed, and hydrated. They also produce Nouri Naked, a fragrance-free body butter, Nouri Multipurpose Body Butter and Klèr Exfoliating Cleansing Powder.

All products are made with natural ingredients to soothe and nourish the skin gently.

Aside from making sustainable skincare, Ekspresyon Naturel is on a mission to spread the message of natural skincare and self-care as they continue to formulate high-quality, skin-first, clean solutions to care for, protect and nurture the skin.
