We love nature in all its forms and only purchase organic and sustainably soured natural ingredients. We felt it was only right to give something back to the natural world; We are proud to be supporting Black's Cornish Bees project which protects our local Cornish pollinators. A new colony was added to Godolphin House (about 15 miles from Inlight HQ) during June 2020 -
The project encourages local beekeepers to support local colonies which some years back became almost extinct.
Bob Black founder of the project says: 'Commercial honey producers import thousands of non-native bees every year. The importation of foreign strains has with it pathogens and pests that have helped to devastate the local honey bee population. If we are to maintain genuine biodiversity in the bee population, honey bees that are locally adapted need to proliferate. Beekeepers across the planet can maintain biodiversity by keeping their own stocks in their own native areas. That’s the perfect scenario for maintaining the health of honey bees. Not only are we saving our Cornish bees on a very local basis, we are encouraging beekeepers in Cornwall to take part in our native bee programme.'

We are very happy to be supporting the Cornwall Wildlife Trust who share the same vision as us: To bring people closer to the natural world.
For over a century the trust has helped safeguard wildlife and wild places, looking after 2,300 nature reserves in the UK!
The team of trustees and volunteers work closely with schools, colleges, universities, landowners, fishermen as well as community groups and business to create awareness, policies and educate on ways to respect and look after our beautiful earth and all its inhabitants; together fighting for a wilder and greener future.
There are lots of ways you can get involved with your local trust: Find out more here
Inlight is delighted to be a resident brand at HELLO LOVE 'a cultural movement that speaks to artistic expression, daily practice and positive social change. Personal Sustainability provides a foundation for our ethos, and Narrative Symphony offers a medium for our pursuit.'
50% of sales are donated to the HELLO BEAUTIFUL Foundation which 'explores the issues that arise when we or our loved ones are faced with cancer and the importance that NonToxic Practice has in this reality.'
Inlight Beauty has donated many of their 100% organic ointments to The Treatment Bag. This charity, run entirely by volunteers, puts together eco-luxe goodie bags to 'help brighten the darkest of days' for anyone undergoing cancer treatments: Each product in the bag has been chosen to counteract one of the side-effects of cancer treatment: 'We researched the issues with cancer treatments and collated a list of common problems, plus items which were a luxurious treat'.
