Home / Alter/native

We’re all natives of this little blue planet. As the climate crisis becomes more apparent, it’s clear we need to practice new, sustainable alternatives in our everyday lifestyle choices.

Here at Suma we’ve always done things a bit differently. Vegetarianism, sustainability and co-operation are at our heart, so we like to put these values in practice. When we talk about ethics, we mean business.

ALTER/NATIVE by Suma, our new body care range, offers an alternative to the highly processed soaps and shampoos you find on the high street. By harnessing the power of plants, we’ve created some gorgeous products that are great for your hair and your skin, as well as the planet.

Everything in our range is vegan and cruelty free, made with essential oils and free from nasties. What’s more, they’re made in the UK, and by local, small craft makers wherever possible.

ALTER/NATIVE by Suma loves your skin and respects our planet.
