First and foremost, toil + trouble® is an elemental skincare brand providing simple, conscious remedies + preventatives to the skin-based ailments that can cause many of us so much toil + trouble. From irritated + parched complexions to loss of luminance + pore pollution, exposure to the elements on a daily basis can ravage the skin.
Our ethos takes the five elements of life: earth, fire, water, air + aether, infusing them into our products and using them for good, to rebalance the effects of the elements on your skin. A process we like like to call ‘elemental equilibrium’.
Earth nourishes, water sustains, fire energises, air provides oxygen + aether - the space in which all molecules and atoms roam free - is where these elements interact. You are earth, you are water, you are fire, you are air + you are aether, so why wouldn’t your skincare be too?
We keep our ingredients clean, honest, cruelty-free + naturally-derived so that your cosmetic rituals can stay that way too. Our products are fragrance-free, only ever scented by naturally occurring aromas.
We’re not just a skincare brand though. What we are is much bigger than us.
We're a female-founded company, championing gender-neutral skincare. We also promise to leave as little trace on the planet as possible, educating our customers on how they can make more sustainable choices when nurturing their skin. When we take from the earth and its elements, we must also give back.
