For this edition of Behind The Label we interviewed Bill Bakho - the founder of BB Lifestyle and he's also a Beyond Bamboo board member!

Tell us a bit about how your business got started and what inspired you?

"I have very sensitive skin. When I was in my late teens/early 20’s I reacted to every sunscreen on the market. So I was forced to create something that I could use - effective yet gentle on sensitive skin. This is the ethos behind all the products we create and what sets BB Lifestyle apart from other luxury skincare brands; dermatological grade products developed with natural, organic and vegan ingredients that work!"

BB Lifestyle utilises innovation, ingredients, and advanced technologies to pioneer and rewrite the rules of skincare.

Intentionally natural, organic and vegan ingredients. It’s what they put in and what they leave out that makes BB Lifestyle the modern skincare essential.

You can count on BB Lifestyle to deliver multi-faceted, benefit driven products with sophisticated formulas and cutting-edge ingredient technology.

Their boxes are manufactured at a facility that has been awarded membership by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to the 2010 Green Power Leadership Club.

Their packaging manufacturer is Certified Green-e aka Green Power, and therefore reducing over 2 Million pounds of C02 emissions & builds green infrastructure for future generations. 

Their boxes are made from certified well-managed forests, and the Box Manufacturing facility is certified by the SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative). 

This philosophy of helping others has been the underlying driving force behind all of BB Lifestyle’s achievements. To that end, since BB Lifestyle UK is based in Sussex, it would like to expand on the helping others mantra by ‘giving back’ to its local community.

They have selected My Sisters’ House Women’s Centre as the first beneficiary of their giving back campaign. BB Lifestyle UK will donate a percentage of the proceeds of each sale to this worthy local charity. My Sisters' House CIO provides a range of support needs to women from all backgrounds facing all kinds of issues where their strengths are recognised, their difficulties acknowledged and where they can achieve positive change.

"We have been following Beyond Bamboo since it was a germ of an idea….  The ethos of our two organisations is aligned. The icing on the cake is both our companies are BB which we think is a good omen!"
