Ben & Anna are an all-natural, vegan and organic personal care brand. Ben & Anna also stand for sustainability – avoiding plastic and relying on packaging that doesn’t put an additional strain on our natural world.
Their toothpastes, toothbrushes, deodorants, and shampoo and conditioner soap bars are a perfect addition to the Wellbeing Sisters family and an excellent way for our shoppers to make more eco-friendly choices when it comes to their daily essentials.
We caught up with Leanne Stephenson, co-ordinator at Ben & Anna UK, to find out a little more about the brand.
Where did the idea for Ben & Anna come from?
As a strictly vegan couple, Ben and Anna had always paid close attention to what they consumed, predominantly purchasing products from sustainable and organic sources. They had long been searching for a deodorant that didn’t contain aluminium and that was vegan and not tested on animals, but they couldn’t find anything that fit the bill. So, they decided to develop their own deodorant that contained all-natural ingredients, was free from parabens, synthetic aromas, and alcohol, and that could be used by men and women alike. Finally, after several attempts, and a lot of time and tinkering, Ben and Anna had a product they were hugely proud of and were ready to launch their deodorant.
The great success of the deodorants combined with a demand for more zero-waste products and their desire to extend the vegan lifestyle to other areas of life have since inspired Ben and Anna to extend their range. They have gone on to create and develop their very own plastic-free, sustainable, and effective dental care range for the whole family to use, alongside a toothbrush range and their newest addition – soaps. The entire Ben & Anna range is zero waste, vegan, and certified natural and organic so that you can be as eco-friendly as possible.
What words best describe your brand?
Zero waste, zero worries, plastic-free, cruelty-free, 100% natural.
What sets you apart from other personal care brands out there?
We are an award-winning zero-waste, vegan and cruelty-free brand (absolutely no animal testing). All our ingredients are certified natural and organic and are free from parabens, alcohol, aluminium and synthetic aromas, and in fact, any chemicals at all. Not only that, but all our packaging is environmentally friendly too!
Why did you want to partner with Wellbeing Sisters?
Our ethos and Wellbeing Sisters’ ethos are a very good fit – we both believe in the power of natural ingredients, using products that are free from harsh chemicals, and reducing the environmental impact of packaging.
Choosing to work with Wellbeing Sisters has been the best decision. It allows us to improve the health and wellbeing of those who wish to lead a more eco-lifestyle without the chemicals found in conventional products.
What are your customers looking for when they shop with you?
Effective, natural, and organic products that really work! They’re also eco-conscious shoppers looking for zero-waste options, vegan and cruelty-free products, and green credentials.
Why should our customers make the switch to Ben & Anna?
If you want to change an eco-friendlier way of living, taking small steps can make a big difference. Changing just one item in your personal care routine, such as a deodorant or dental care product, can make a huge difference to the environment. By buying from Ben & Anna, you will switch to a zero-waste glass jar rather than a plastic toothpaste tube, and you can recycle your deodorant and soap packaging. Ben & Anna is the number one natural and organic brand to have in your life – our award-winning toothpaste has been a sell-out!
What’s your greatest accomplishment to date?
The tube deodorants are our best innovative product, while our toothpaste is our award-winning product.
If Ben and Anna hadn’t set up their company, what would they be doing instead?
Probably working as Greta Thunberg’s personal assistant!
