Our Story & Sustainable Beauty
Our philosophy is simple; blend the power of nature with ancient wisdom, to create 100% natural, cruelty-free, skin and oral care products, that really work.
KOHLE was born after a lack of gentle natural skincare and teeth whitening treatments on the market lead us to discover ancient remedies and two of the most powerful ingredients in nature; Coconut and Charcoal.

As a beauty brand, we’re incredibly conscious of our impact on the environment, we're aware that our products have a lot of packaging and so we're looking at how we can reduce this and use more eco-friendly options.
The initiatives we’ve introduced so far:
We’ve steered away from standard shipping satchels and instead now use at bio-degradable satchels. They are Bio-based ie.partly made from PLANTS.
They feel and behave exactly like plastic, EXCEPT they are biodegradable with no toxic residues (or micro-plastics!) They’re made from corn starch with a binding agent/resin added for flexibility. They can be composted at home! Once you’ve finished using it, just put it in with your food scraps and garden waste.
We also no longer using bubble wrap when shipping goods, instead we use an eco-friendly alternative. The paper we use is 100% recyclable, compostable, biodegradable and is either Sustainable Forestry (SFI) certified or made using recycled content.
The mouthwash bottle, toothpaste tube and facemask jar are made from PET, Polyethylene Terephthalate, known commonly as PET or PETE. As a raw material, PET is globally recognized as a safe, non-toxic, strong, lightweight, flexible material that is 100% recyclable.
We moved away from using plastic in our toothbrush, we launched the biodegradable charcoal toothbrush. The handle of the toothbrush and window of the box is made from corn starch which is biodegradable and compostable. If that wasn't enough, the cardboard box is recyclable, made from Kraft paper, FFC certified.
Our Konjac sponge comes from a porous, potato-like plant which is 100% Biodegradable.
We are constantly researching and looking at new initiatives on the market.
