Social Impact

The Group aims for inclusivity with our products and encourages and promotes diversity, equality of pay and opportunity across the business. The health, safety and wellbeing of employees is of paramount importance and the Group seeks to support and benefit the wider community where possible.

Products and Inclusivity

The Group recognises the importance of its products to consumers whatever their gender, sexuality or racial background, and seeks to ensure they are inclusive for all. Its cosmetic and skincare products are developed for every skin tone, with a wide range of shades and The Group aims to make them as inclusive and affordable as possible.

The Group recognises its products are gender neutral, for example its Brow King palette was created in collaboration with celebrity brow stylist, Salih Cikikcioglu. The Group also has other product and marketing collaborations with male influencers, with its ‘Here Come the Boys’ campaign showcasing W7’s makeup products with ten male-identified bloggers and makeup artists.

The Group is committed to ethical and responsible sourcing practices aligned with international standards and protocols for human rights, worker rights, environmental and human health and safety. In support of this commitment, The Group is seeking to enhance its responsible and ethical sourcing practices to better address the risks and challenges in an increasingly complex global supply chain.

The Group seeks to ensure no product is wasted and for example in conjunction with Tesco, any W7 products remaining in store after short-term promotions are donated to be placed in food bank collection points which are positioned at the front of all large Tesco stores.

In addition, any Technic and Body Collection excess stock that can no longer be traded is donated to local hospital staff and charities such as the “Look Good Feel Better” cancer charity, having a positive social impact on our community as well as supporting our waste reduction.

Our People and Communities

The Group has a diverse workforce and promotes equality of pay and opportunity throughout. Employees are encouraged and nurtured to attain positions best suited to their ability, and the business promotes from within wherever possible.

The health and wellbeing of employees is paramount. Warpaint operates an open-door policy that encourages communication and engagement at all levels of the business with daily interaction and regular departmental meetings where input from colleagues is welcomed in any area.

In addition to supporting a number of local and national charities and events each year, the Group has aligned with and made long-term commitments to several chosen charities working with young people and people living with cancer.  

•          “iHeart” – Warpaint has made along-term commitment to support a young person’s mental health charity, “iHeart”, with a donation of funds and visits to schools in Greater London. This charity supports young people by providing a range of courses and programmes on mental health education, resilience and wellbeing.

•          “Look Good Feel Better” – We have aligned our Body Collection England brand with the Look Good Feel Better charity who run wellbeing workshops and classes for people living with cancer.  As part of British Beauty Week 2022, we hosted a Wellbeing Event at our offices in Silsden to raise awareness and funds for the charity and will continue to fundraise and sponsor their ongoing agenda across 2023.  

•          In 2022 our Technic Brand became official sponsor of Farsley Celtic U16s, a girls netball team in our local community. We have supported the team with the purchase of their kit, donated products for local fundraising and provided work experience at our Silsden HQ, helping the girls to develop self-confidence, image positivity and commercial understanding.  

•          Current primary school education and the wider market is limited in sustainability content that ignites an interest in children and sparks an appetite for further learning. UK based company Anniemals have created a book that helps children to understand the impact of plastic on the environment through the magic of storytelling.  In 2022 Warpaint became an established corporate partner of Anniemals.
