What kind of features can we find at Biome’s Eco Store?
Certified Cruelty-Free, Leaping Bunny or PETA: these certifications ensure that there is absolutely no testing on animals of the final product and ingredients, and no palm oil or dairy. An astounding 98% of the products are vegan!
Made in Australia: there are benefits of Biome sourcing locally-made and handcrafted products, such as reducing transportation costs and the carbon footprint involved in this – so Biome is bringing a more sustainable supply chain in the Australian market. Also, by only supplying Aussie-made products, Biome is supporting the local economy; everything is made by a reputable person or business with a story to tell.
Palm Oil Free: as you may already be aware there’s a lot of controversy around this ingredient. Sourcing palm oil is the largest cause of deforestation in Indonesia and other equatorial countries, not just an obvious environmental sacrifice but also it has endangered orangutans population.
Toxin Free: the products at Biome Eco Store have severally ruled out the long list of nasties that compromise your skin, hair and other cleaning products. This means you will not find any synthetic ingredients, preservatives or fragrances.
