Superdrug comes top amongst the health and beauty retailers and ranks no.1 in the pure-play retail sector in UK Customers Satisfaction Index (UKCSI) this year, despite unprecedented impact of Covid-19 on retail industry.
With online trolling an increasingly visible issue, Superdrug is pledging to take a strong stance against negative behaviour online and instead encourage people to use their online platforms to spread kindness and positivity. Working with youth organisation, Ditch the Label, Superdrug is reminding social media users to #BeKind online and create a bully-free zone. Alongside the collaboration with Ditch the Label, Superdrug is joining with influential voices in the social space, content creators Imogenation, Simone Powderly and Georgia Rankin, to spread the word about the campaign.
Superdrug is proud to announce that it has removed all plastic applicators from own brand tampons, and launched its first own brand range of organic menstrual products, Luna, to continue to offer customers more environmentally friendly alternatives.
With over 200,000 tonnes of sanitary product material believed to end up in UK landfill every year, Superdrug is the first health and beauty retailer to discontinue plastic applicators within its own brand sanitary products, which will save over 418kg of plastic each year.

The Superdrug and Savers teams ran an Easter Art drawing competition for the children of employees working from home during the pandemic. This was to keep them engaged and entertained, with the results shared on the Hub, the internal communications portal, and prizes awarded for best entries in different age groups.
Following the first activity’s success, the teams decided to purchase packs of sunflower seeds to send to colleagues and their families. Many participating staff planted the seeds at home in their gardens or in pots in their windows, hoping to see the sunflowers grow in June and July. A competition for the tallest and biggest plants will be held in July with prizes going to the most talented green thumbs.

Working in partnership with the Mekong Club, an independent NGO, A.S. Watson Health and Beauty UK has developed online training modules to raise awareness of modern slavery to all levels of staff in the UK.
A mandatory Modern Slavery eLearning Module was launched in September to all colleagues at Superdrug, Savers and The Perfume Shop. A secondary mandatory module was also launched for colleagues who are directly involved in procurement, since they are the people who would most likely come across situations involving potential modern slavery.
