Cult beauty brand Nécessaire has launched in the UK: Here’s what to buy

Bodycare that’s as effective as skincare has been a rising trend in the world of beauty for some time now.

‘In the past couple of years there has been an increasing focus on the skincare we apply from the neck down and a movement to ensure that these creams also come packed with some of the powerful and efficacious ingredients that we usually associate with our face products,’ said YOU’s beauty director Edwina Ings-Chambers recently.

One such brand that has honed in on this new area of bodycare is Nécessaire, the US brand that set out to revolutionise they way we think about and use bodycare products.

After founders Nick Axelrod and Randi Christiansen launched the brand in 2018, Nécessaire quickly because a cult name, known and loved for it high-quality formulas that use ingredients usually reserved for facial skincare.

Nécessaire’s vast range of fragrance-free formulas mean the products are suitable for those with sensitive skin, while the minimalist packaging makes a chic addition to any bathroom shelf.

As a climate- and plastic-neutral brand, Nécessaire also racked up positive environmental credentials, making it extremely popular in the USA. Now, the wait is finally over and it’s available to shop here in the UK, exclusively at Space NK.


Due to the brand’s immense popularity, here’s the Nécessaire products we recommend you stock up on now while stocks last – which probably won’t be long, the fragrance-free body lotion is already a trending product on Space NK’s website.
