Packaging

Why is your packaging so special?

Our skincare is primarily packaged in 100% recyclable dark violet MIRON glass bottles, made in Switzerland. MIRON glass blocks the complete spectrum of visible light (aside from non-threatening violet light), which would otherwise accelerate molecular decay among preservative-free and toxin-free ingredients. This luxury glass also protects the energy of the products and adds to the vitality of the ingredients contained within. The glass is shatter resistant and provides the ideal cool, dark storage environment for natural products. Interestingly, while the violet glass is relatively new to the beauty market, it has been used since ancient times. Records show that it was used in ancient Egypt to store valuable essences and remedies.

Is your packaging recyclable?

Our glass bottles are 100% recyclable and the rest of our packaging is too- even the protective material within your delivery box! While it may look similar to Styrofoam, we use BioFill environmentally friendly alternative. Bio-Fill is made from 100% natural starch making it compostable- simply apply water to break down. 

Am I able to send back my glass bottles to you to be refilled?

All of our glass bottles are recyclable and our black rice paper tea refill bags are biodegradable. We are working on finding a way to provide refills to customers in a sustainable way, unfortunately, we haven’t been able to find a resource efficient way to transport bottles back to us and efficiently sterilise and refill the bottles. We have a few ideas on upcycling here.

Product information

Are you certified organic?

Our products are made with certified organic ingredients along with wildcrafted ingredients. Wildcrafted ingredients are found growing in arid and regions of Australia in their natural habitat. This means that they cannot be certified organic as they are not grown in a controlled environment. From a purity standpoint, however, we consider wildcrafted botanicals to be even more therapeutic than organic ingredients as they grow in an untouched and pristine environment. Ingredients which are organic are noted in the ingredients list of each product with an asterisk. Our teas are made with 90% certified organic ingredients.

What is the shelf life of your products?

Our products naturally last two years without being opened. Once opened the products will last for approximately 12 months although we recommend using them within six months. That’s what the little open jar symbol on the packaging means.

Are your products tested on animals?

We completely believe in the ethical treatment of all animals. Including humans. None of our ingredients or products are tested on animals.

Are your products vegan?

Yes, our entire product line is vegan. We are certified PETA vegan and cruelty free.

Are your products suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women?

Our entire skincare line was originally formulated by our founder Anna Mitsios, specifically for pregnant women and women wishing to conceive hence every skincare product is safe for pregnant women. Our Native Collagen Powder is also safe for pregnant women. Our tea line has been created using traditional herbs, many of which have not been tested on pregnant women. For this reason, we recommend that you consult your medical practitioner for specific advice regarding which teas are appropriate for you. All of our teas and skincare are suitable for breastfeeding women.

Are your products palm-oil free?

Whilst we are currently not using any palm oil in our products, our olive-oil based emulsifier may occasionally contain sustainable palm oil as derivative. We are in the process of transitioning away from this supplier to reformulate products with an alternative palm oil free emulsifier.  Products which are 100% palm-oil free include:

  • Pure Enchantress Makeup Remover Oil 
  • No.2 Citrus Rhapsody Toner Mist
  • No.3 Exotic Goddess Ageless Serum
  • & Snowflower Illuminating Face Oil
  • & Exotic Seed of Youth Anti-Ageing Oil
  • Bloom of Youth Infusion Mask
  • Goddess on the Go Lip Balm
  • Booster Serums — Turmeric Beauty Latte, Probiotic Radiance Tonic, Deep Sea Collagen Elixir, Glowing Skin Smoothie

The texture of my No.3 Exotic Goddess Ageless Serum has changed. Is this normal?

Yes, this is a product that can vary with every batch. This is specifically a result of the interaction between the Hyaluronic Acid and the Australian native ingredients rich in vitamin C that is within the product. The serum may vary from cloudy to clear in colour, however, the therapeutic efficacy of the product is the same. 

The scent and colour of my product seems to vary from the last product I purchased?

This is normal and is a reflection of the natural ingredients we use. We batch make all of our natural skincare and use pure Australian wildcrafted extracts that may differ in colour and texture based on season and region they are harvested from. As a result, this product may vary in colour, texture and fragrance from batch to batch. This does not impact the efficacy of the product and each contains the same amount of active ingredients.

Do your products contain Parabens or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate?

No. All of our products are entirely free of all Parabens, Alcohol, Phthalates, Preservatives and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.
