About Us

Beauty Banks exists to end hygiene poverty in the UK.

How Beauty Banks works

Beauty Banks receive surplus products from the beauty industry’s supply chain, donations from corporate brand partners, small businesses and members of the public. The products are then redistributed to frontline charities and community groups. You don’t need to be a charity to receive products.

Many of Beauty Banks’ partnerships come via referrals from registered foodbanks, domestic abuse charities, homelessness shelters, NHS trusts and care leaver associations. Organisations sign up, free of charge, to receive products from Beauty Banks. Organisations provide us with information regarding the items that they need, and this information is used to make the orders. In 2022 Beauty Banks supported over 450 partnerships right across the UK. It should be noted that Beauty Banks is unable to support individuals at this time.


We redistribute surplus personal care products to those who need it.
