What is Beauty Banks?
Superdrug are proud partners of Beauty Banks, the people-powered, grassroots movement empowered by the belief that being clean is a basic human right. The ultimate goal is to make 'hygiene poverty' history in the UK. Beauty Banks supports people living in poverty by providing personal care products and hygiene essentials to those who can't afford to be clean.
This movement is about dignity, self-confidence and mental well-being, but it’s also about change - Beauty Banks support those in need while lobbying the UK government. Together, Superdrug and Beauty Banks are delivering Beauty with Purpose.

“ We cannot praise or thank Superdrug highly enough for the support they have given Beauty Banks over the last 1.5 years. We kicked off our partnership back in 2018 with ‘Beauty Spot’ donation bins in three Superdrug flagship stores in Manchester and five in Scotland. Following the success of these pilots and thanks to Superdrug’s continued an authentic commitment to Beauty Banks we’re thrilled our partnership is evolving and we can reach more charities in need across the UK. Superdrug are pioneers and leaders on the High Street and we couldn’t wish to have a better retail partner.
