The Slo road to a cleaner world

Slo Natural Beauty was founded in 2016 by two women driven to be part of a movement of mindful natural beauty companies, who seek sustainable practices and provide slower more conscious alternatives to fast beauty.

Vanessa and Monica's journey into body-care started in 2016 from the simple need to find a natural deodorant that was affordable and worked all day from one application.

It needed to be high performing, with a low environmental footprint. 

Once we had created an award winning deodorant, it made sense to add more beauty essentials, in need of a shake up to the collection. Slo's range now includes: deodorants, lip balm, stick moisturisers, dry shampoo, hair clay and have just launched oral care with tooth tablets.
