Retailer Marks & Spencer has launched a new own-brand skincare line Fresh Elements, featuring affordable products “charged with science-led ingredients,” its first in seven years.

Fresh Elements has been developed in-house by M&S’ team of expert technologists “to help boost skin confidence without the fuss, cutting down on complicated regimes and focusing on efficacious, science-backed skincare that makes your skin feel good”.

Commenting on the beauty launch, Tara Singleton, head of beauty at M&S, said in a statement: “We’re so excited to introduce Fresh Elements, the first new own-brand skincare brand that we’ve launched in 7 years. After noticing that customer feedback and frequent search terms highlighted the demand for hydration, glow and blemish-tackling solutions, we set out to build a simple, effective and affordable range of products developed to target those specific needs.

“In development by the team for more than three years, this smart skincare range is the latest exciting addition to M&S Beauty – the reviews from the testing panel have been phenomenal, and so we can’t wait to hear what our customers think.”
