We’re Carbon Theory. We create affordable, effective, anti-breakout skincare solutions for humans.
We’re not here to pretend breakouts don’t exist
And we’re not here to promise you a quick fix. But we are here to have honest conversations about skincare, create products that keep breakouts at bay, and help you feel better about your skin, one day at a time.
Ingredients that are kind to the skin
Our formulations give your skin what it really needs. Naturally powerful, never artificial.
We started life in a North London kitchen
It all began back in 2018. A handful of ingredients, our founder Phil’s kitchen sink, and a bold vision to reinvent spot-fighting skincare. Fast forward a few years, we’ve sold over 1 million products. But our philosophy remains the same. 100% vegan, cruelty-free skincare for real skin that actually works.
Tried and tested on humans
You’ll find thousands of transparent reviews from real people alongside each of our products.
Formulated for everyone
We are here to give everyone access to affordable anti-breakout skincare - that just works.
Our customers tell our story best
with products that just work.
Amazing products with great results
My daughter swears by these products. She will not use any other soap now. Her acne has definitely improved since using it. She calls it her miracle soap. We highly recommend Carbon Theory. She has grown in confidence and we will continue to purchase Carbon Theory.Cath R Verified Buyer
This is my second time purchasing the soap and really is the only one to work with my skin! I have skin prone to breakouts and it’s the only thing that keeps it under control! If I don’t use this for a couple of days I start to get another flare up so it’s a must now! Such a good price I wouldn’t use anything else.Emily H Verified Buyer
So so pleased, finally found something that works for spotty skin!
I have been looking for something for my spots for a while, I have tried so many different products that haven’t worked. I came across this and thought, for the price, it was worth giving it a go. I am not disappointed! It has worked wonders. I’ve been using it along with Olay regenerist twice a day and my skin finally looks healthy!Anna S Verified Buyer
