As the largest organ of the body, everything we put on our skin is absorbed into the bloodstream — so naturally, what we put on our skin should be good enough to eat. If you’re making the transition to an all-natural skincare regime or looking to try some new brands, we’ve put together the best organic and eco-friendly makeup brands and where to find them in Perth:
What to buy:
With a belief that clean, conscious and cruelty free beauty is better for us and for the earth, founder of TMF Jill Chambers trail blazed her own range of 100% Australian made products. All her products are free from chemicals, packaged sustainably and lovingly concocted to be nurturing and effective alternatives for the skin. You’ll find her stuff all over WA, from Generics at Enex Perth, The Archive Home in Fremantle and The Face Bar in Kings St, find out where else you can get it here.
Launched in Sydney in 2006, Inika is 100% Australian owned and since became globally recognized as a trusted source for organic and all-natural makeup. Emerging in response to the lack of options available for chemical-free makeup, Inika filled the gap in the market with a full range of all your makeup needs, that’s just as effective if not better than the chemical ridden brands you’ve used over the years.
Founded by Australian mother Sonya Driver when her sister was diagnosed with a melanoma, the two sisters began a ritual of using fake tan together as an alternative to UV rays and soon became inquisitive about the ingredients that they were putting on their skin. She found brands claiming to be natural to contain harmful ingredients and in response to this, she began mixing batches of cacao, flower essence and chamomile to create what is known today as the the first certified Organic tanning manufacturer under the Australian Government.
Launching the first environmental nappy in Australia, founding friends Sinead Roberts and Sioned Guard now make everything from natural sun blocks, facial wipes, makeup and baby products. With many of their proceeds being donated to women’s charities and an NSW children’s hospice, by buying Wotnot you’re supporting both your environment and your community.
