Ethical brand ratings and accreditation since 2001


How ethical is Purscents?

Purscents, a sustainable brand offering a range of scented products for the home, is one of The Good Shopping Guide’s leading Ethical Accreditation members and is featured on our list of the Top 200 Ethical Businesses.

Purscents launched in September 2022 to create nature-inspired, luxurious, and welcoming scents to refresh the home, boost well-being and awaken senses all while prioritising sustainability. The Purscents collection includes scented candles, sustainable candle refills and reed diffusers, all available through its online store and select retailers.

The company’s ethical achievements are truly commendable. We therefore encourage other brands within the scents industry to follow Purscents’ example and adopt more ethical policies and practices.

What makes Purscents so sustainable?

Purscents’ commitment to reducing its environmental impact and addressing the issue of waste in the candle industry is at the heart of every decision the company makes. From responsibly sourcing plant-based ingredients, to opting for reusable and compostable packaging materials, to developing new products, Purscents strives to make a positive difference.

Purscents’ scents are derived from 100% essential oils and plant extracts, and because the brand believes that quality should not be compromised, each product is carefully handcrafted in small batches, ensuring nothing short of a luxurious experience for its customers.

Additionally, Purscents products are free from synthetic fragrances, paraffin, phthalates, dyes, and any hidden ingredients. The company is also committed to being a socially responsible business by donating 10% of its annual profits to charity both in its local borough of Lewisham and Ghana, where its founder grew up.

How did Purscents attain Ethical Accreditation?
