The cult products to know from three female-founded botanical beauty brands

Tata Harper


Columbian-born Tata Harper launched her plant-based skincare line long before ‘natural’ and ‘non-toxic’ became phrases of note in the beauty industry. Each product is formulated at Tata’s organic farm in Vermont using plants grown there, as well as other natural ingredients sourced from around the world, before being bottled and packaged onsite. You can even trace how fresh a product is by entering the batch number on the label’s site. A luxury approach sets the company apart, but it is the skin-changing results from the science-driven formulas that have seen the brand develop a global following. 

The cult buys:

The reviews for the bestselling Elixir Vitae Eye Serum are proof alone that this wonder product actually works. If you are in need of glowing skin fast you’ll love the award-winning Resurfacing Mask.



Vanderohe founder Olivia Thorpe’s exacting standards carry through to every aspect of her organic skincare brand. From sourcing ingredients on organic farms in their country of origin to printing her recyclable and biodegradable packing with a Carbon Balanced Printer, every detail of her hand-blended range has been carefully considered. Olivia was driven to create her beauty line after failing to find a way to treat a case of severe allergic dermatitis she contracted in her twenties. Two years of research into the chemistry of plant oils resulted in the formula for the award-winning No. 1 Nourishing Face Serum, which has been picked up by NET-A-PORTER as one of their cult beauty finds. 

The cult buys: 

The Sasawashi exfoliating face cloth is a game changer when it comes to cleansing while the scent and glowing results of the original No 1. Nourishing Face Serum will have you purchasing it on repeat.

 De Mamiel


A cancer diagnosis was the catalyst behind acupuncturist and healing facialist Annee De Mamiel creating her holistic skincare line. Whilst undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy she found that her usual beauty products severely dried out her skin, so set out to create her own nourishing formulas. Drawing on her knowledge of both aromatherapy and chinese medicine (which she went on to study following her recovery) every De Mamiel product is created to rejuvenate skin from the inside and out. Her range of oils and balms are all produced in the British countryside using flower essences and pure essential oils. 

The cult buys: 

We love the limited-edition seasonal facial oils which are designed to enhance the skin and support emotional well-being at different points of the year. Don’t just take our word for it - there is often a waiting list well in advance of release. Meanwhile, the beautiful scent of the Restorative Cleansing Balm makes the simple process of washing your face an almost sensory experience.
