Ausganica - Before founding her company, Moreen spent a decade working for an Australian multinational cosmetics supplier and contract manufacturer. 

Moreen was aware of the reputation of natural products at the time as they were seen as ineffective or not great quality.

Moreen was determined to prove it could be done and done well. Moreen was among the early innovators of organic regulations in Australia, and she committed to follow them with Ausganica.

In 2008, when she was ready to begin, she drew on her extensive network of skincare experts, herbalists, hair specialists, growers, and suppliers of quality organic and natural ingredients, to transform her vision into reality.

The entire Ausganica product range is all natural, cruelty-free, vegan, free from synthetics, chemicals, artificial preservatives, petro chemicals, synthetics, masking agents, and fillers

Ausganica is manufactured in a Certified Organic Facility that they own and operate. Their Organic and Safety Certifications far exceed those established by the USA’s FDA.

Australia's Manuka Honey company is family owned and operated since it was established in 1996. They have been supplying authentic Australia’s Manuka Honey locally and abroad.

This honey is sourced from Manuka flowers located on the pristine North Coast of New South Wales in Australia. The harvest takes place usually during the flowering of our Leptospermum plants in a narrow window of three to four weeks per year.

Counter Culture began when founder Michelle Perkins wanted to eliminate all toxins from her home. Her journey began more ten years ago when her 3-year-old daughter managed to lock herself in the bathroom. She was found safe, but with bleach cleaner spotted down the front of her dress.

At that point she began searching for a way to clean without the stuff that can poison children or damage the environment.

Along the way she found some scientists who had been doing groundbreaking work with bacteria. They created a probiotic cleaner for a livestock farmer who wanted to reduce the chemicals his animals were exposed to. It turns out his pigs were healthier and his cows had less infections once he ditched the chemicals. She thought, if it can clean an actual pigsty, surely it can clean a countertop!

Counter Culture have been working with these guys ever since, road testing formulas in Australia, and creating Counter Culture products that are completely safe, work great, and smell ten times better than grandma's potpourri.

What do you do when you can’t find a healthy, pleasant tasting, all natural toothpaste, suitable for the whole family? You make your own. That’s exactly what Michael and Michelle Aronson did over 30 years ago when they were looking for a great tasting family friendly toothpaste that was free from SLS, parabens, preservatives and also fluoride free.

With no natural toothpastes on the market that tasted great,  or were family friendly and free from SLS, parabens, preservatives and fluoride-free, they set out to make their own.

The name ‘Grants’  comes from the street in which they lived at the time.  Their daughter Tammy has since joined them and together they are committed to producing affordable, natural products for the next generation of health conscious families.

Wheatbags Love was founded in 2014 by Kim Stark. Back in the day when she was a remedial massage therapist she got a little frustrated by how ugly your standard wheatbag was.

What was with all the corduroy in bad colours? Determined not to sell those in her clinic she started making her own. Then she started screen printing her own fabric and selling to other similarly minded clinics and gift stores… 6 years later her love of such a wonderful, helpful product that brings such joy to people hasn’t dimmed.
