Frequently Asked Questions
The majority of our products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. As much as possible, we use natural ingredients and scents in our products and try to reduce our single-use packaging.
Are all of your products vegan and cruelty-free?
The majority of our products are 100% vegan, with the exception of our goats milk soap. We never test our products on animals or use ingredients where others have tested on animals.
Where are your products made?
All our soap and skin products are made in Australia, with the majority of our products are made in Creswick in regional Victoria.
Are your products natural?
Many of our products are 100% natural. As much as possible we use 100% natural essential oils for our scents and natural colours. We occasionally, in selected products, use cosmetic grade synthetic ingredients which may make up up to 2% of a product to create vibrant colours or longer lasting scents.
Are your products suitable for pregnant women?
Any of our products that do not contain essential oils can be used during pregnancy. We offer products that are either unscented or some of our ‘limited-edition’ products may include cosmetic grade fragrances which are suitable during pregnancy.
Do you products use nuts or nut-based ingredients?
Many of our products contain nut-based oils such as Macadamia oil and Sweet Almond Oil or nut-products such as Walnut shell. While nut-based products are not included in all our products, our manufacturing equipment is used to manufacture nut-based products. Please see the ingredients list that can be found with each product listing.
