A new vegan beauty brand has launched products housed in innovative biodegradable seaweed capsules.

Bolt Beauty has launched with four travel-friendly products – a cleanser, moisturizer, retinol serum, and blemish-fighting moisturizing serum.


The products are packaged in travel-friendly singles doses in the seaweed capsules, which, once used, can be dissolved in water or thrown in a compost bin.

All excessive outer packaging has been eliminated and any packaging which is needed, such as postage and packaging, is made with FSC certified and fully recyclable paper and tissue.

Bolt Beauty says its products ‘make overnight stays and taking beauty products to the gym fun, easy and guilt-free. Decanting, heavy bags and excess travel minis are a thing of the past’.

‘Zero compromise’

“I believe beauty should be zero compromise,” Lisa Sexton, founder and creator of Bolt Beauty, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“This means beautiful products made from safe and effective ingredients, that can easily be taken wherever you need them, without any hassle. You should be able to maintain a great skincare regime without your life revolving around your bathroom cabinet.

“We also can’t compromise on the bigger picture: the things we buy shouldn’t harm the planet and must be easy for the consumer to sustainably use and dispose of.”
