what i'm made from
Finger lime - Aussie native
Bursting with tiny pearls and found in the rainforest, this finger-shaped fruit is loaded with natural tryptophan, amino acids, and ferulic acid. That means hella hydration at the skin barrier and calm, even skin.
Lilli Pilli - Aussie native
Kinda like botox, without the botox. Excels at producing collagen and elastin in the skin and creates firmness. Fine lines and wrinkles are so 2003! Originally eaten by Aboriginal Australians on the daily, for its anti-ageing powers.
Quandong extract - Aussie native
Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, aka your new BFF. She’s got more vitamin C than an orange and is known as the ‘native peach’. Rutin reduces dark circles, and vitamin E helps to reduce signs of ageing.
Waratah flower extract - Aussie native
The most iconic flower in Australia (we’ll take 12 of them on Valentine’s Day), with strong anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Calms and renews the skin’s natural barrier, giving you that youthful glow.

How to use
Dab or pat a few drops of your serum to your face morning and/or night, before any creams or oils. For best results follow up with an oil serum while the skin is still damp.
can be used daily in the AM + PM
Our native extracts are produced using rainwater that is filtered and deionised to hospital standards. Using rainwater not only helps combat water scarcity but is also an effective way to limit the environmental damage that can be caused by stormwater runoff.
Water-based formulas mean a preserving system is required to maintain the highest quality and stability so you can use it safely on your skin. We use a COSMOS and ECOCERT certified preservative which focuses on safety from the production of raw materials to the distribution of finished products. They also promote the use of ingredients derived from renewable resources and production and manufacturing processes that are environmentally safe.
With the planet, and its plants, animals and people front of mind, our native extracts supplier has always placed a strong focus on empowering Indigenous communities and the continual advancement and improvement of sustainable and ethical practices. Through circular economies which intentionally design waste out of the consumer cycle, our supplier is able to keep products and materials in use whilst regenerating natural systems. Find out more.
The production of palm oil contributes to destroying the habitats of endangered animals through rapid deforestation and we're just not about that. This large-scale destruction of rainforests is also releasing significant quantities of carbon pollution into the atmosphere, making palm oil a major global driver of human-induced climate change.

When should I use Hydrating serum?
Hydrate Hero Thirsty Skin Serum is best used after cleansing and toning, and before moisturising, this allows for maximum absorption of the active ingredients. Apply before bed to maximize efficacy because, while you snooze your skin checks off all of its restorative tasks.
Should I rub pat or serum?
Light pressure works to increase blood circulation, which is beneficial for the skin cells. However, if you have sensitive skin which already has redness use the patting technique.
What are the benefits of the lighten up brightening serum?
Our hydrating serum works to enhance your skin's hydration, prevent it from drying out and improve its moisture retention.
