As a natural, Australian-owned skin care brand, we’re conscious of our local surroundings and all the natural wonders that make Australia a beautiful place to live. Regardless of where in Australia you call home, our local beaches and oceans are nothing short of phenomenal.
This April and May, we ask you to think about transferring the same love and care we share with our families, into our relationship with the earth. Especially the quest to protect our oceans. Inspired by the sea’s natural elements, we’ve introduced two new colours to our sustainable skin care range, limited-edition coral and aqua. The perfect gift for Mother's Day.
These additions to our earth-loving skin care are in support of one of the natural wonders of the world (that’s right on our doorstep!) – mother ocean. As with the entire Santé range, conscious coral and aqua are made from quality raw materials, made to last and are entirely reusable for up to three years. Reusable skin care helps prevent disposable cotton pads and makeup wipes ending up in a landfill or our oceans.
It’s not only the disposable products themselves that are the problem. It’s reported that 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the global cosmetics industry. The main culprits being complex lids, multi-layered boxes and cellophane, much of which is superfluous, non-recyclable and ends up in the sea.
Flick through the term ‘unboxing’ on Instagram and you’ll see what we’re talking about. It’s a social media trend that sees our favourite influencers and celebs opening the amazing gifts from beauty brands. If you look beyond the beautiful products within, you’ll see all the plastic packaging.
Santé tackles the beauty industry’s ‘pretty packaging problem’, as our range is shipped in composable bags and contained within their laundry bags. So, whilst facing environmental issues can seem overwhelming, small acts can make a big difference!
That’s why we’re inspiring you to consider the impact of your everyday beauty routine and show some love to our beautiful oceans with sustainable choices. Together, we can reduce packaging and remove irresponsible waste produced by the beauty industry. Help spread the word and share our natural, ocean-friendly skin care range with someone you love - your Mother.
