Wild Wild West; from West Africa to West London – We take a look at Ethical Beauty Brand Honey Corn
W11 is perhaps better known for its candy coloured Georgian town houses. Delighted tourists follow ice cream hues to the epi centre of eclectic antiquities and kitsch wonderments. All set within the indomitable surrounds of west-London cool. Famous locals such as the celebrated editor in chief at British Vogue, Edward Enninful are often spotted holding court among the glitterati at local hang out, Pizza East. And many young designers such as Molly Goddard and Shrimps began and continue to flourish within the bounds of the Royal Borough. A new brand on the West London block is ethical beauty line Honey Corn. Founded by local resident Ayesha Ibrahim.
After stumbling across organic skincare brand Honey Corn it seemed to tick a lot of boxes. Who could say no to a handmade in London organic skincare brand made out of Manuka honey, vitamins and anti oxidants . Honey is known for a vast array of qualities full of natural moisturizers, antioxidants, and enhancing the skin.

An article in Vogue France says, “skin is skin! Women have “been slipping on their boyfriend’s shirts and spraying on their cologne, they’ve now started borrowing their after-shave lotion. This gender-bending craze is nothing new; first spotted on the catwalks four or five seasons ago, the idea has recently caught on in the beauty world and it’s a simple one: to sell products suited to everyone male or female.” Skincare for him and for her - check out Honey Corn.
