Since the pandemic started a few months ago we have seen an increase in many customers who wanted to purchase Australian made and owned products.

Whether it is grocery items, skincare or other goods there seems to be the desire to support local business to kick start the economy and save jobs.

This move is admirable and so true to the Aussie spirit.

At botanicES we have always supported local business and being a registered Australian Made and Owned company, proudly displaying the triangle with the kangaroo, this value fits in well with our clean beauty brand.

Supporting local business means jobs are safe and provide revenue for growth to so many local businesses.

We do not export our products as we also only market in Australia giving Australians the benefit of an affordable, well tested product that works.

I'm so glad to have found an Australian product that is actually Australian owned and sourced etc. I will be passing this on to friends of mine who are also trying to do the right thing!.

SAFE

At botanicES we make sure we deliver a safe and tested Australian Made and owned product to our customers.

Testing

  • All our formulations and clinical tests are done by local Australian companies e.g. The Institute of Personal Care Science who conducted clinical tests on our products and found an increase in hydration up to 59% and skin elasticity up to 50%.
  • Before a product is released to the market it has to pass a strict test to assure it is free from contamination – this is done by a local laboratory in Brisbane

Packaging

  • Sourced from an Australian company in Sydney
  • We take care to package our products in airless pump bottles ensuring that no air can contaminate the product while in use

ETHICAL

Ingredients

  • We choose just the best local ingredients for our brand

Natural coffee extract

  • the upcycled coffee beans for our natural coffee extract (the signature ingredient of all our clean green skincare) comes from the beautiful Kahawa Coffee Estate in the Byron Bay Hinterland
  • Manufacturing of the coffee extract takes place at Southern Cross University in Lismore providing jobs at this facility

Certified Kakadu Plum Extract and Jojoba Oil

  • Certified Kakadu Plum Extract and Jojoba Oil are 2 more examples of locally sourced ingredients. These are found in most of our products.

TRANSPARENT

  • We are transparent to our customers about what we use in our formulations – to be quite exact we use few ingredients in our formulations and are always willing to look at any queries or suggestions from our Australian customers.
  • All our manufacturing of our skincare takes place at a GMP manufacturer north of Brisbane or by a certified organic manufacturer in Sydney.

SUSTAINABLE

  • As being proudly Australian we care deeply about the Australian environment and its diverse wild life
  • We believe that for the sake of our country we should reduce plastic waste. We only use recyclable packaging and as a customer you even have the option to return your empty bottles to us to be responsibly recycled
  • Every shipment is carefully packed to be plastic free in sturdy cardboard mailing box that is sealed with paper craft tape (yes you heard correctly we do not even use plastic packaging tape)

Let us keep doing the right thing by our beautiful country and keep on buying Australian Made and Owned.

Aussie Aussie oi oi oi!!
