We love working with brands and helping them to collaborate with our bloggers – so much so that we are always on the lookout for exciting people to talk about and share with our bloggers. During our extensive research to find the hottest trends and coolest products, we come across up-and-coming brands that we just have to introduce you to! Some of the brands below you’ll find in our opportunity board, others are simply companies our detectives found online. Let’s take a look at what’s trending in the HBC Edit this week.

8 GreensScreenshot (12)

These powders are packed with every green vegetable you can think of, and then some. Bursting with antioxidant rich kale, alkalising spinach and barley grass, and immune boosting blue green algae, this is the ultimate re-energising green boost. Unlike most green powders, 8 greens tablets actually tastes good – simply add to water, watch the tablet dissolve, and drink. It’s time to say goodbye to the sugar-laden shop-bought green smoothies, there’s a new green energy booster in  town.

Jacobsen’s Gold Label Cacao Salt

KURE_Calisch_WEB-28Putting the core values of craftmanship and community first, we love Jacobsen Salt Co’s kosher sea salt. With a pure, pristine taste (thanks to being sourced from the icy cold waters of Netarts Bay, Oregon Coast) Himalayan sea salt has got some competition. Although they offer a range of sea salts to try, our favourite has to be the unique gold label cacao sea salt. Who’d ever have thought that cacao and salt go together so well?! A match made in foodie heaven.
