Beauty v conscience: everyone loves being pampered, but the choice for anyone who wants to avoid contributing to animal suffering has always been limited.
It’s easy enough to pick up cruelty-free brands to use at home, but if you’d like to get your nails done or your legs waxed, the chances are that the salon uses brands that have been tested on animals or contain animal ingredients. You either have to check with the salon, or just not bother.
Until now, that is! Margot London is the first (and so far, only) salon in Crouch End N8 area to go cruelty-free. You can luxuriate in all the treatments you want, and your conscience will be as clear as your skin.
Why we went cruelty-free
Our road to being cruelty-free began when our resident pooch Juno became part of our family. Being around Juno every day was such a delight that we began to wonder what else we could do to support animals. The obvious conclusion was to go completely cruelty-free. There are so many amazing products that use no animal ingredients, and that are not tested on animals.
It’s a win-win situation for everyone and means that everything at Margot London – yes, everything from waxing treatments to the skincare products you can take away – have helped to reduce animal suffering.
We’ve sourced some of the top luxury cruelty-free skincare and beauty products to use in our treatments:
This luxury skincare brand is only sold via professional outlets. It’s not your average skincare range; AlumierMD has been designed by a team of biochemists and skincare specialists, and uses the very best cruelty-free ingredients. When you book a facial or a skin peel, you’ll benefit from advanced skincare tailored to your particular needs. And the pampering doesn’t end there. Ask your facialist at Margot London to recommend products to take home with you; we stock a wide selection of products from the range.
Would you even think to wonder if your waxing treatment was tested on animals? No need to ask us. All our waxing treatments use Outback Organics, cruelty-free & vegan and an ethical range using botanical ingredients from… yes, the Australian Outback. Mother Nature offers some wonderful ingredients, now here in Crouch End!
Your struggle to find a cruelty-free tanning product ends here. LDN:SKINS provides professional tanning products that will give you that wonderful sun-kissed glow. If you’ve ever tried (and failed) to use self-tan at home, let our experts skilfully apply LDN:SKINS for that perfect tan.
Does your busy life leave little time to fiddle about with applying mascara? Come in for the LVL Lash Lift. Relax while the technician works her magic with lashes that are cruelty-free, and leave with the most fabulous lashes that make mascara redundant. It’s the timesaving and long-lasting solution to beautiful lashes.
Frustrated at how little time your manicure and nail colour last? Bio Sculpture to the rescue! It’s perfect for the busy professional who needs beautiful nails that last. Your nails will be stronger and healthier, thanks to these revolutionary products. They are revolutionary because there are so few brands of cruelty-free AND vegan nail polishes on the market. Bio Sculpture knows that no two women are alike, so the system can be perfectly customised to suit each client.
So ladies, if you’ve had to choose between taking the ethical path and taking care of your face and body, your worries are over.
You’re all welcome at Margot London, where beauty won’t come at the cost of your conscience. Enjoy a selection of luxury beauty treatments, and leave feeling on top of the world.
