Refill: Here’s our ‘why’.

Since the day we opened our doors in 1991, Perfect Potion has actively promoted reusing before recycling. As part of our ecoBiz 3-Star rating, in the past 24 months we have reduced our energy by 53%, our water intensity by 75% and our waste to landfill by 65%. More recently, Perfect Potion became solar powered, making our Head Office and labs close to being completely self-sufficient, often putting energy back into the grid. Since we began generating solar power, Perfect Potion has saved over 48,000kg of C02 emission, the equivalent of 162 trees planted.

To continue on our mission to save the environment and reduce pressure on recycling companies, we have recently reintroduced Deodorant Refill Stations in store, allowing you to reuse your glass bottles and save money at the same time. Based on our deodorant sales from 2018, if we were ALL to utilise the refill service, we would save approximately 16,000 deodorant bottles per year! Imagine the positive impact this would have on our environment and Australia’s recycling

companies. You can now take your clean, empty glass deodorant bottles with the label intact to selected stores to refill, and receive $5 off. To check refill locations and for terms and conditions, head over to our Customer Service page.  

We are so thrilled to be fully transitioning to glass and aluminium packaging for our products. Not only is glass 100% reusable and recyclable, 80% of the glass that is recovered after recycling is made into new glass products. A glass container can also go from a recycling bin to a store shelf in as little as 30 days, making it the best choice for our packaging and refill service.

Thank you for supporting us in our mission to reduce plastic and landfill, and save the environment, one bottle at a time.

A Simple Guide to Serums

Are serums sitting on a pedestal in your skincare cabinet? Or are you a member of the ‘wondering what a serum is and why you need one’ club?

While cleansers, toners and moisturisers form the foundation of a quality skincare ritual, serums are fast-catching up with them as the new must-have for a radiant complexion. Serums are currently boasting royal status in the skincare world. Their potent, complexion-enhancing powers have earned them a flower crown-worthy reputation. But rest assured they are worth the hype! Although they are still less famous than their foundational counterparts, their ability to help you reach your skincare goals make them worth exploring. Here’s an overview of what you need to know about these potent skin-lovers.

So, What is a Serum?

Serums are fast-absorbing, nutrient-rich skin treatments. They feature a concentrated dose of botanical actives made up of tiny molecules. What’s the benefit of tiny molecules? Their size allows them to easily penetrate the outer layer of your complexion and move much deeper into your skin to than many other skincare products. This ability to deliver intensive doses of active ingredients deep into your skin makes serums perfect for targeting specific skin concerns!

What Benefits Can You Expect?

Depending on their ingredients, serums can offer you a wide range of skin-enhancing benefits, including:

  • Shielding your skin from the effects of pollution and environmental stressors
  • Preventing and treating dehydration
  • Skin brightening
  • Improving elasticity and tone
  • Smoothing, plumping, firming and refreshing
  • Supporting concerns like rosacea, sun damage, dehydration and acne
  • Evening skin tone
  • Neutralising free radical damage
  • Stimulating skincell turnover

How to Use Your Serum

Your serum can be worn day and night underneath your moisturiser after cleansing and toning. When applying use gentle, upward motions to massage into your face, neck and décolletage then press into your skin to aid absorption.

Inside Sharon Woods’ Meditation Space

“I was finding my head was always busy and I was getting overwhelmed easily”.

We recently sat down with our General Manager of Sales and Marketing, Sharon, to peer inside her daily meditation practice (featuring her puppy Archer) which she says she can’t imagine going a day without. We also got a sneak peek into her beautiful meditation space!

We’re curious, can you walk us through your journey with meditation?

I started meditating about 10 months ago and I have experienced an amazing difference. My practice differs depending on the time I have. I try to meditate first thing in the morning when I wake up, but if I miss it, I do it just before I go to bed. I try to spend 20 minutes with a guided meditation, but if I haven’t got the time, I will just do a shorter 10 minute one. I begin by lighting some incense or putting a drop of essential oil in my diffuser and breathe deeply. I finish with a short journaling session.

Why is a meditation practice important to you?

I, like many people, have a really busy life. I was finding my head was always busy and I was getting overwhelmed easily. I also recognised I didn’t have a lot of time for me. My time was spent giving out to everyone else. So I started doing an online meditation course, and I really enjoyed the practice and now I can’t imagine not doing it daily.

What are the must-haves that make your meditation space special?

I love my little space, it has my essential oils, my diffuser, a few candles, incense, and crystals. I also have some of my books about meditation and a book to record my journaling in, and of course a comfy seat!

What advice would you give to people struggling to start a meditation practice?

I am no expert, but my advice would be to just stick with it. Find an online course or some free guided meditations to start and then you can progress from there (or stay where you are – because that’s perfect too!) Just allow you some time for yourself and enjoy!
