At Wild Leaf Botanicals, we feel strongly about our beliefs and values and keep these in mind in whatever we do. Read on to find out more about our philosophy.
We truly believe that less is more, and in the beauty of handmade goods. Our products contain all the goodness you need, without any unnecessary ingredients.
We believe in transparency, and will always be open and honest about what is (and isn’t) in our products, and strongly oppose “greenwashing”. We will never make unrealistic claims about the benefits of our products.
Our product range contains only natural ingredients, which are mostly botanical (i.e. from a plant). This means we use high-quality cold-pressed botanical oils to nurture the skin, pure essential oils to scent our products and natural exfoliants such as pink lake salt, and that our products are free from harsh chemicals such as parabens, synthetic fragrances, PEGs, SLSs and other sulphates.
We are proud of the fact all our ingredients are native and/or locally grown, with the only exception being ingredients required for the performance or preservation of a product (currently only Vitamin E as an antioxidant in our Hair and Body Oil). We will use organic products where available locally, but where unavailable, choose to purchase locally produced ingredients instead of using imported organic products. By doing so you can be assured of a high quality product and one that supports local farmers and businesses while reducing our carbon footprint. Also, our plastic packaging is manufactured in Sydney by an Australian-owned company.
All our current skincare products are anhydrous (i.e. they do not contain water) so they don’t require a preservative. We do include natural Vitamin E in our Hair and Body Oil to prevent oil rancidity. If we decide to introduce any products that contain water, we will be sure to balance the need for safe and effective preservation with our philosophy of using natural ingredients.
We will never test on animals, only family and friends. Our products do not contain palm oil or any palm oil derivatives. Most of our products are vegan, except for the Lavender and Calendula All Over Balm which contains beeswax.
We aim to minimise our environmental impact wherever possible. All our products are ocean-friendly as we use natural exfoliants rather than plastic microbeads. Our packaging is recyclable (PET plastic, made in Sydney, and glass) and we use recyclable and/or recycled packing materials when mailing products. We encourage customers to re-use or recycle our packaging and packing materials.
We value education highly, and aim to educate you so you can feel empowered to make your own informed decisions about what you put on your skin. We will provide information based on fact, without the use of fear-mongering.
Above all, we want to feel good when using our products, knowing they are beneficial for you without harming the earth.
