Our Vision, Purpose and Story
We began with a concept to offer quality products that are palm oil free, cruelty-free, ethical, sustainable, environmentally-friendly and plastic-free. We had a goal to make sure our business operations were doing more good than harm, and so we have made it our top priority to source quality products, from our ingredients down to our packaging. In sourcing our supplies, we support other local Australian businesses that offer quality products.
But more than just operating an environmentally friendly business, we wanted to take it a step further and really try to contribute to something meaningful that aligned with our vision and values. We researched for the best way we might be able to do this, and that's when we found Carbon Neutral.
We have partnered with Carbon Neutral to create a program that allows us to fund tree planting in a meaningful way. We have pledged to plant one tree for every item sold. That means every time you shop with us you are planting trees! There is no limit to how many trees we will fund - 1 item = 1 tree, 10 items = 10 trees, etc, etc! More detailed information about our Plant-A-Tree Program can be found here.
Our products are handmade with quality ingredients. We will never use any ingredients that are tested on animals, and our products will always be cruelty-free, vegan and palm-free.
Many candles, soaps and other beauty products on the market today are made with palm oil containing ingredients, and sadly palm oil deforestation is a leading cause to the destruction of forests in Borneo and Sumatra, which is the main reason orangutans are threatened with extinction. Although there are claims that some palm oil is produced sustainably, we believe that it is not easy to verify the standards of these claims and therefore it is best to avoid it altogether. For this reason, our products will never contain any palm oil.
Another important goal for us was to avoid plastic packaging and make our products zero-waste. Sustainability is something we take very seriously. We are all about 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle'. All our items packaging will either be reusable and recyclable, or biodegradable and compostable. We send all of our parcels in recycled cardboard boxes, and we always try to give a second life to any boxes we receive.
And finally, we are totally on board with being a bit extra sometimes, so we wanted to create a product range that is perfect for spoiling yourself and your loved ones, a pampering night in, or much deserved self-care. We wanted to be able to offer a luxury range without costing the earth (pun intended🤓).
We are a small family business located in Grafton, in the Northern Rivers area of NSW, Australia. We offer Australia Wide shipping!
