Byron Bay Skincare
Inspired by the coastline of Southeastern Australia, Byron Bay Skincare have a 100% natural range of body care, skin care & hair care products all made using the very finest, local botanical ingredients. Their plant powered products aren't tested on animals, contain no nasties and are environmentally friendly. If that wasn't enough, with every product sold they plant a tree, meaning they are just as beneficial for you as they are for the environment.
We caught up with the founder, Greg Milham, to find out more about Byron Bay Skincare:
What was it about Byron Bay that was such an inspiration to your brand?
The pristine coastline, lush rainforest and rolling countryside of Byron Bay inspired us to produce a product that is at one with our natural surroundings. We want the world to experience both the purity and beauty of Byron Bay and what can be achieved with a great deal of tender care and affection to our surroundings.
Byron Bay has been and still is a key to an abundance of Marine Life, lush rain forests and land animals. Lord Byron once said of Byron Bay, “To have joy one must share it” and each year it attracts many thousands of tourists who want to experience one of the true wonders of our world. As communities, we need to give back to the land that sustains us, in order to maintain the natural ecological balance and as a socially and environmentally conscious brand, we want to echo this in our ethos.
Why was it so important to you to produce a range that is natural, organic and free from animal testing?
There are so many people in the world who care about what they apply to their skin. Our research into other companies highlighted some very disappointing results in terms of ingredient purity and factory conditions. Each range we produce has therefore been organically certified to the extent it can be traced to the actual processor, supplier and then to the farm gate. Whenever possible the ingredients are locally produced and we make full use of fair trade products.
How does your planting initiative work and why do you do it?
For every item sold a tree is planted, it’s really that simple. We believe in giving back and by supporting Seed The Change this has become a reality. With "One Product One Tree" our customers can actively combat deforestation and climate change all by choosing a bottle of moisturiser or shampoo, we think it’s brilliant!
What Australian ingredients make your products unique?
The tropical climate of Australia, especially the South Easterly regions, allow us to grow a number of unique amazing ingredients. Our home favourites, tea tree oil, aloe vera and eucalyptus are found in all our products along with more luxurious ingredients like raw coconut and argan oil. These ingredients are well known for their nourishing benefits on the skin.
In addition, we use more unique ingredients like the indigenous Davidson Plum which offers strong antioxidant and anti-ageing properties. This native tropical rainforest fruit is one of Mother Nature's most effective antioxidants, with extremely high levels of Vitamin C and other fruit acids.
Likewise, Canaga Odorata (Ylang Ylang) which is native to Northern Australia, is among the most celebrated flowering trees in the world. It is extremely effective in maintaining moisture and oil balance of the skin and keeps the skin looking hydrated, smooth, and young.
These are just some of the ingredients we use in our products, each individually chosen to target specific skincare concerns.
