What makes our coral range conscious?
Earth-loving, award-winning skin care just got more conscious
As a natural, Aussie-owned skin care brand, we’re conscious of our local surroundings and all the natural wonders that make Australia a unique and magical place to live.
We wanted to release a limited edition coral colour to our range of earth-loving skin care in support of one of the seven natural wonders of the world that’s right on our shores - the Great Barrier Reef.
Why we need to protect the coral reef
Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is iconic and irreplaceable. Visible from space, the Reef is visited by 2 million people every year, contributing $6.4 billion dollars to the Australian economy every year, and it’s under threat.
Human influence is a major threat to the Reef. Fishing, coastal developments, climate change and poor water quality have led to a 50% decline in coral cover since the early 1980s. We must act now if we want to protect the Reef for future generations.
About the Great Barrier Reef Foundation
Some of the brightest minds from around the world are working together to find solutions to help protect and restore the Reef, and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation is at the centre of this.
The Foundation is uniquely placed to lead the collaboration of scientists, reef managers, business, government and philanthropists to develop the knowledge and solutions needed to protect and restore our precious Great Barrier Reef.
Wondering how a skin care solution can make a difference? Introducing Conscious Coral.
5 ways Conscious Coral makes a difference
1. zero waste skin care
Santé’s Conscious Coral is a sustainable skin care range. Made from quality raw materials, our skin care products are made to last and are entirely reusable for up to three years. Reusable skin care helps prevent disposable cotton pads, makeup wipes and packaging ending up in a landfill or our oceans.
2. zero chemicals + no microbeads
Many makeup removers, facial cleansers and exfoliating scrubs contain a mix of natural and manmade ingredients that simply wash down the drain after use. These chemicals can impact the balance of ecosystems and affect local wildlife. With santé you can remove your makeup, cleanse and exfoliate with just water and Santé’s skin-loving fibres.
3. carbon neutral production
The release of carbon is a major contributor to climate change, a change that’s altering the ocean's chemistry and causing the temperature of the ocean surrounding coral reefs to rise, affecting coral and the home to hundreds of marine species. Each Santé skin care product is individually hand sewn in Austria, and since 2015 Santé’s international headquarters has been 100% carbon neutral by offsetting their carbon production with reforestation projects in Nicaragua.
4. upcycling project
Santé does not want to see a single one of their skin care products end up in a landfill or our oceans, which is why we encourage customers to return their old Santé skin care products after their 3-year lifecycle. The products are collected and upcycled into practical solutions such as home insulation or car seats.
5. donation to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation
We’ve released our limited edition Conscious Coral in support of the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. Between 15 April and 31 May 2019 Santé will donate 50 cents from the sale of every Conscious Coral to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.
“The funds we raise are directed to projects with large scale impact – that go to the heart of saving coral reefs and the marine life that depend on them.” – The Great Barrier Reef Foundation.
For every $1 we donate, 80c directly funds projects that help protect and restore the reef.
