Vegans unite: there are more options for us than ever before in the natural skincare world. We would still love to see even more choice, and luckily, because of the increasing number of people who are asking for eco-friendly, non-animal tested and organic skin care, brands are starting to sit up and take notice. But while this has meant there are plenty of amazing products now available for us as companies clamour to fill the demand, some recent releases are not what they seem. Unfortunately, there has been a lot of 'greenwashing' in the beauty industry, where brands call themselves natural and organic when they still include ingredients that are harmful to our skin, not to mention the environment. It can also sometimes be tricky to ascertain whether the items listed as 'natural' truly are what they say they are. This is because there are plenty of buzz words and marketing jargon being used to focus your attention on, which distract from the ingredient list filled with a mashup of natural and chemical ingredients. And, perhaps not surprisingly, some of the larger companies with big enough budgets to ensure all their items are eco-friendly can be the worst culprits!
This is where Floral & Fauna comes in. We curate a collection of vegan skincare that contains toxin-free ingredients and refuse to stock products that test on animals. We love finding new brands, whether large or small, that have the same ethos as us.
That is why at Flora & Fauna, you can trust the natural skincare products we stock. We group together a range of items for your face and body that will make yourself and the planet healthier. You can even filter the products depending on what’s most important to you: our categories include eco friendly, palm oil free, Australian (lessening the impact of shipping on the environment), certified organic, organic ingredients and cruelty-free accredited.
You can also trust that the items we choose truly do abide by these standards: we have won awards proving our dedication, from being a finalist in 2015 for ‘Best New Online Retailer' in the Australian Online Retail Awards to bring shortlisted as a finalist in February 2017 at the World Retail Awards in the Responsible Retailing Category. Very importantly we are also now a Certified BCorp. You will find beautiful skincare at Flora & Fauna, from lip balms to body oils, that don't make you feel guilty.
Some of the other benefits you receive when you purchase our skincare include access to a huge selection to choose from, we have over 4000 products on our site and keep adding more based on your recommendations. We even offer gorgeous gift boxes so you can treat others as well as yourself.
What's more, all our products are fully vegan: we choose botanical rather than animal derived skincare every time. We also send out our items in zero waste packaging, and offer a minimal packaging option, to ensure we aren't leaving any carbon footprint. Plus, everything is recyclable!
If you have an account you will earn loyalty points with everything you buy, which you can later redeem with us just by logging into your account.
We also support several charities with the profits we make from sourcing and selling skincare. Where Pigs Fly Farm Sanctuary is one excellent organisation we send 10% of our revenue from certain products to each month. We also give 50 cents from select items sold to Sea Shepherd Australia, which helps to look after the seas. You can find both brands’ merchandise on Flora & Fauna, too.
