Kara Trousdale, Amazon’s Head of Beauty for Private Brands, said the products had been developed with convenience in mind.

She said: "Our goal is to help customers spend less time and money searching for the right skin care solutions.

“We took a simple, no-nonsense approach when creating Belei, developing products with ingredients that are both proven to deliver results and also offer customers great value for the quality.”

The products are said to be free from parabens, phthalates, sulfates and fragrance and have not been tested on animals.

Meanwhile, its packaging is made from post-consumer recycled resin and carton packaging, which is said to be 100% recyclable.
