Our earth is beautiful and powerful and respecting this delicate balance means taking responsibility for the way in which we live in this world.
The demand for products holding certifications identifying them as organic, natural or cruelty free is increasing every year with consumers becoming more savvy about what they buy and how this effects their bodies and the environment.
At Perfect Potion, we’re so proud to hold certifications that mean we use ingredients that support the environment, communities and animals.
Since the beginning, owners and creators Sal Battaglia and Carolyn Stubbin have been passionate about bringing customers products that are natural without compromising the environment.
We often receive questions from customers asking what the benefits of having these certifications means and, why organic is better than non-organic?
To us, having organic, natural and cruelty free ingredients epitomises the Perfect Potion ethos: we want to create beautiful aromatherapy products that adhere to a holistic way of life. A holistic way of life is the belief that all parts of the world are intimately connected.
Often in today’s society we can feel detached from our environment, but we want our customers to feel that connection again, and we believe this can be achieved through knowing what you buy, where it comes from and how it was grown.
Certified organic ingredients mean that we are looking after the environment. Most organic certifications prohibit the use of synthetic chemicals such as pesticides, fungicides and herbicides. This means that farming biodiversity remains and the land will be rich and viable into the future.
Perfect Potion holds two organic certifications: COSMOS and Australian Certified Organic (ACO). COSMOS is the result of five leading European certification bodies working together to develop a worldwide cosmetics certification scheme.
COSMOS recognises certified natural and organic cosmetics have been made using natural and organic ingredients that are sustainable and environmentally friendly. This certification is used in Perfect Potion’s skincare and body care, ensuring what you put on your skin is natural.
When sourcing our ingredients, to comply with COSMOS, each ingredient must be free from GMOs, nanomaterials, irradiation and animals testing. Australian Certified Organic or ACO is the local accredited certification body for the COSMOS standard and requires that products and ingredients are grown and processed without the use of synthetic chemicals, fertiliser or GMOs.
Australian Certified Organic is the strictest organic certifying body in Australia and audits Perfect Potion annually. ACO declares that certified organic products are not only better for your health and well being; they are better for the environment.
To make sure we look after the environment and all its creatures, Perfect Potion has also been accredited by Choose Cruelty Free. This means we hold the licence to bear the bunny logo on all our products. Cruelty Free demonstrates that all of our ingredients have not been tested on animals. For our vegetarian and vegan customers, we’ve got you covered. All of our products are vegetarian, with most being vegan.You can find lists of our products in store and on our website that identify the small number of items which may contain beeswax or honey.
Charlie is a member of the Perfect Potion family and helps out in the office by eating ‘spare’ food and giving us cuddles. We would never test our products on Charlie or any of her fur brothers and sisters, except perhaps our Furry Animal Shampoo on bath day.
Choosing to support certified organic and cruelty free products means supporting organic farmers as well as ethical producers and processors who are doing the right thing for the earth.
We love all of our customers and we thank you all for choosing Perfect Potion. By being part of the Perfect Potion family, you’re ensuring a natural way of living and environmentally conscious way of living is available for all.
