We were delighted to be selected as the first US retailer of S5, a line of certified organic cosmeceuticals from the UK. These natural and organic skincare products represent everything that we look for in the products we carry: They truly deliver excellent results, they don’t contain controversial ingredients like parabens and phthalates, and they’ve been crafted with care by a small team of experts – the award-winning development team behind Nude Skincare – whom we greatly admire.

S5 has been designed to address chronic skin stress, which has been identified as the leading cause of premature aging and a common culprit behind redness, sensitivity, and adult acne. S5 addresses all of these stress-related issues with a full lineup of natural, hypoallergenic skincare products that are beautifully made but reasonably priced.

Laura, S5's extraordinary founder, is devoted to finding natural ingredients that really work (with clinical studies to prove it). For S5, she sourced ingredients from the most extreme parts of the planet — such as Antarctica, the Wadi Desert in Egypt, and the Amazonian Rainforest — that have naturally evolved strength and resilience to extreme environmental stress over millions of years. When used on the skin, this resilience helps your skin cope with the stresses of modern living like pollution, UV and EMF radiation, chemical irritation and environmental damage. Reducing stress on the skin helps the skin stay in balance and reduces the likelihood of skin problems such as sensitivity, redness, blemishes and premature ageing.

Shop the entire S5 collection here, or start with our three favorites:

  • Illuminate Serum, featured on Refinery29, which addresses hyperpigmentation and dullness with a unique marine enzyme that sweeps away dead skin cells while leaving healthy ones unharmed
  • Neutralise Cleanser, S5's organic version of Cetaphil, calms fussy skin immediately while it cleanses effectively

But what we might love even more is the stress-reducing fact that all the products are so wonderful, you really can’t go wrong.
