MADE FOR EVERYONE
- MADE IN AUSTRALIA
No matter how far and wide we roam, we’ll always call Australia home. No, we’re not an ad for Qantas. We’re a skincare brand that’s devoted to creating Australian-manufactured products, using native and responsibly-sourced ingredients, which significantly helps reduce our transport and shipping impact on the environment. Our manufacturers hold internationally-recognised quality and safety certifications — the highest standards of certifications to make sure our products are the best they can be. They also reduce consumables, waste & carbon emissions in all aspects of their business, and also support community organisations.
The only thing we manufacture internationally is our packaging, which is made by ethical manufacturers in China. They simply do it better than we do down under, and they have the resources to efficiently and sustainably produce our packaging.
We don’t know about you, but we don’t have time for BS products. We’re too busy planning our next vacation. That’s why we make everything in Australia using only the highest quality and responsibly-sourced ingredients. We promise never to use nasties in our formulas or test on animals — just real skincare-using humans.
We also promise to be 100% upfront about our processes, sustainability practices and ongoing commitment to learning and doing better for you, and for our planet. Starting with our plans to implement post-consumer recycled packaging and 100% recyclable cardboard mailer boxes, as well as eliminate unnecessary plastic waste across our supply chain by 2024.
We don’t believe in hiding behind suspicious terminology — you can find our ingredients, INCI lists, and manufacturing information right here on our website, or just ask our customer service team and we’ll happily answer. We’re an open book. (Most likely People We Meet On Vacation.)
WE PUT STABILITY AND SAFETY
FIRST AND SECOND
Preservatives sound scary, but they’re super important — they’re the bouncers that stop gatecrashers (aka bacteria) from showing up in our formulations. We work with a dedicated team of experienced chemists, making sure the preservatives we use aren’t only effective and gentle, but safe and stable. We conduct Preservative Efficacy Testing, which is a microbiological test to make sure our products can cope with microbes from unavoidable external factors, like air and fingers. We also perform Stability Testing to make sure our products maintain their quality, functionality, and aesthetics when stored in certain conditions (think: steamy bathroom).
These tests confirm our formulations won’t cause any nasty reactions on your face, or in our bottles. We also adhere to the strictest cosmetic regulations under the sun and exclude ingredients that have proven to be harmful to your body or leave your skin with a hangover.
Clean can mean a million things, to a million people. It’s most commonly a buzzy keyword to attract consumers. It doesn’t necessarily mean a product is effective, or safe, or better. Applying a DIY mask made out of strawberries and yoghurt is technically “clean” — but you don’t see us walking around with fruit on our face.
We don’t hide behind unregulated terms or vague labels, like “clean” or “natural” — even if our products technically fall into those categories. We’d rather get the formulation, texture, scent and pH right, making sure our products are suitable and non-irritating for all skin types. We’d also rather be specific about the ingredients we use and where we source them from, providing you with transparency and the power to make your own decisions.
WE PLAY NICELY
Our products are like a fruit platter in the breakfast buffet — they’re perfect on their own but are also expertly formulated to work in a routine alongside all of the skincare products that are already on your top shelf.
