About Life Supplies

We’re on a mission to convert one million households to sustainable consumer goods.

Tired of seeing sustainable brands that don’t move the needle, we’ve decided to do things differently. Leveraging world-leading product design and innovative green chemistry, we’re winning the hearts of the mass market through our plant-based, sustainable supplies for your home.

Our starting point is switching people away from Pantene, Carex, and Colgate, with our range of bathroom essentials – formulated with upcycled fruit and delivered in sustainable refill packs just when you need them.

We’re thinking big and owning the plant-based bathroom is just the start. We’ve got exciting plans for the launch of sub-brands and enter into new categories.

To achieve our mission we’ve raised a pre-seed round of £5m ($6.8m) from some of the best known VCs and direct-to-consumer entrepreneurs and have assembled a highly experienced team from brands including Skin + Me, Innocent Drinks, Seedlip, Fever-Tree, Rapha and The Inkey List.

This is an incredible opportunity to lead our product design strategy to take us from being an emerging brand into a breakthrough success, achieving our mission of converting one million homes to sustainable consumer goods.
