ARCADE SKINCARE - OUR STORY

Arcade Skincare was born in the Victorian Market Arcade in the South Wales city of Newport. Nestled between the Wye Valley in the East, the Ebbw Valley to the north, the Severn Estuary to the south and the capital city of Wales, Cardiff, to the West.

We are a small, family-run business with big ideas. Our aim is to provide natural, vegan skincare products made with the best-quality, ethically sourced ingredients that won’t break the bank. We believe that good quality, ethical skincare shouldn’t cost the Earth, and we believe that it should be available to and accessible by everyone.

 

We promise to provide products that are always free from:

  • Animal products.

  • Animal testing.

  • Mineral oils, petrolatum and petroleum products and by-products.

  • Palm oil and palm-oil by products.

  • Sulphates, parabens, and harsh, synthetic preservatives.

  • Artificial, lab-made colourants and fragrances.

  • Silicones.

  • Talc and animal-derived charcoal, or any artificial or unnecessary bulking agents.

 

 We are dedicated to being open, honest, and transparent; we will tell you why each of the ingredients have been included, what the benefits are of the ingredients, and we will never sell you a false promise. We don’t believe in making false promises of a miracle cure; we will help you make sensible choices based on your needs and any skincare concerns you may have.

​Our resident Biochemist and Formulator Mike has crafted every single formulation to contain ingredients that are skin loving, kind, non-irritating and has ensured that we only put things in our products if they have a purpose – we never include anything in our products unless it has a purpose. We don’t bulk them out with filler material, artificial fragrances or colours or silicones or mineral oils.

Our products are lovingly crafted by our Maker Supreme Sioux and Maker Alex in our purpose-built lab-come-factory in the historic Market Arcade. None of our packaging contains plastic; even the paper and adhesive of our labels is plant-based and completely biodegradable. 

The team is finished up by Emma who is our creative whizz who manages our social media and makes everything look nice for you all.

We have created a range of skincare products which can help with a specific concern, enhance your skincare routine or to just indulge in some serious pampering

 

​We are excited to invite you to be part of the Arcade Skincare journey. Informative skincare: Natural Choice.
