PRODUCT ETHOS

 

The best things come in smaller, fresher batches

We make everything in our sanitised kitchen space in small batches to ensure freshness. We are not your typical mainstream beauty product that contains heavy synthetic fragrances and preservatives so that it can sit long on the shelf.
Making small batches allows us to make your product with TLC and work with delicate, active ingredients to give them all the attention and care they need. You get the freshest product, delivered direct to you for the very best results. As a small-batch brand, we can easily adapt and refine our products to ensure you always get the best product we can give you. 
 

Full transparency

All our formulations are truly unique as we formulate everything in-house - there is full visibility and transparency on every ingredient that goes into your product. With transparency, we can ensure quality like choosing reliable suppliers whom we have a relationship with and selecting ingredients that have cruelty free testing processes.
*Excluding Dream Cream where the base formulation is not made in-house (True and transparent).
 

Research driven

Well researched ingredients as we delve deep into dermatology journals and scientific studies when selecting ingredients in your product so they can benefit you in the way they claim to do. Ingredients in our facial product are also checked for their comedogenic rating.
  

Only the essentials

You are getting a concentrated, high quality product without cheap fillers to bulk up the product and no unnecessary extras is such as alcohols, synthetic fragrances/preservatives, artificial colours, parabens, sulphates and mineral oils.
 

Eco friendly

All our products are packaged in recyclable and reusable glass. Jar lids, bottle lids and lip balm tubes can be returned to us via our terracycling program.
Currently our lip balm plastic tubes will be phased out (we are working on it ASAP) and replaced with an eco-friendly option. 
Your parcel box is in recyclable cardboard and all the peanuts we use are 100% biodegradable, compostable and water soluble.  
Your satchel bag is also 100% biodegradable and compostable - just rip off the label and pop the satchel in with your food scraps and green waste to start breaking down. The satchel will biodegrade within 90 days in a regular home composting process.
We will be also be replacing all plastic bubble wrap with corrugated cardboard. 
Rest assured your environmental footprint is acknowledged here at Zen Botanics. We will continue to effectively move away from as much plastics in our packaging as possible.
