Here’s the story behind the Badger range: Badger is the best stuff for your skin. The products are also a healing.. Healing as in: fresh air, sunlight, a cooling breeze and the kind thoughts of a good friend. Those are simple ways of restoring balance. And that’s the way Badger products work. Simple blends that safely and gently restore balance by supporting your body’s innate ability to heal itself.
Three things you should know about Badger products:
- Badger products are 100% Natural. 98% “Natural” isn’t good enough. They never use chemicals, synthetics, GMO’s, parabins, toxic preservatives or any of the other bad stuff that you’ve read so much about. (Badger Balms Co also like animals, so, obviously, no animal testing either.)
- Almost every product uses from 70%-100% certified organic ingredients. This is exceptional natural quality.
- The ingredients are always naturally processed. This is very important, as chemical processing can rob the life from a natural botanical that was originally designed by nature to be whole and good.
That’s the Badger story. Soothing & smoothing blends of powerfully pure ingredients that you can count on.

Dr Bronner’s product range is based on traditional liquid and solid Castile soaps. Unlike most commercial soap-makers who distill the glycerin out of their soaps to sell separately, Dr Bronner’s retain it in their soaps for its superb moisturizing qualities.
Dr Bronner’s superfat their soaps with hemp and jojoba oils for a milder, smoother lather and use natural plant-derived vitamin E and citric acid to protect freshness. Their liquid soaps are 3 to 4 times more concentrated than most "liquid soaps" on the market, and are only a few percent away from being a solid, which ecologically saves on packaging materials. Dr Bronner’s do not add any chelating agents, dyes, whiteners or synthetic fragrances and use pure and powerful high-quality essential oils.
The Peppermint Pure-Castile Soap from Dr Bronner’s is a must-have in any bathroom. The peppermint essential oil creates an exhilarating tingly-cool body space. Because therapeutically peppermint oil is a mild stimulant, it increases vitality and clarity.
For Dr Bronner's 60th anniversary, they are pleased to announce that the classic
unsurpassed liquid are now certified not only under the
USDA National Organic Program but also Fair Trade under IMO’s “Fair for
Haven Scent is a family business that came into being through our increasing awareness of the harm chemical additives have on our bodies and the environment and the lack of genuine, healthy skin care products available on retail shelves.
With the increase of consumer awareness and the turn towards a more natural product the terms “Natural & Organic” have become nothing more than marketing tools.
In Australia, there are no Standards for Skincare & Cosmetics, allowing for differing opinions of what “Pure & Natural” could mean. For this reason, we believe products falling under the banner of “All Natural” are misleading to consumers.
To make the Pure, Natural & even Organic claim, you only need to add one complying ingredient. As a result, we are seeing products labeled Pure, Natural & even Organic with a major content of non-toxic, but lifeless ‘plant-derived’ emollients, fillers & modifiers, to which Natural Botanical ingredients are added, minimally. We are seeing products labeled “Pure, Natural & Organic” containing ingredients that research has shown to be accumulatively toxic.
To ensure that the product you are purchasing is of the quality you are expecting it is imperative that you read the full ingredient listing to determine the product’s true worth. You can be sure that Haven Scent products contain 100% natural ingredients and a very large proportion of organic ingredients. What you read on the label is what you get in the product

EVERY Pure & Green Organics product is ACO Certified Organic; face, body, dental and hair care. No loopholes, no compromises! In June 2009 we became the first and only company in the world to achieve this.
Some important things we discovered about the cosmetics industry:
- Many companies call themselves 'certified organic' when in reality only 'some' of their products are certified organic; their remaining products fail certification.
- There is more than one certifying body you can approach to certify your product but only a select few have the high standards we all assume the words 'certified organic' stand for.
- Prior to June '09, not one cosmetics company in the world had succeeded in achieving real high-level certification for every product in a range including face, body, dental and hair care; they all made unhealthy compromises.
Real certification you can trust:
Australian Certified Organic is the gold standard for real high-level cosmetics certification; there is no higher standard in Australia. Here are 3 examples:
- Real certification requires at least 95% of ingredients by mass be certified organic. Other certifiers accept as little as 20% or less.
- Real certification won’t allow use of synthetic vitamins (eg.
pro-vitamin B5) or synthetic surfactants (eg. coco glucoside, coco
betaine) while other Australian certifiers will allow these and other harmful synthetics.
- Real certifiers like ACO not only prohibit toxic solvents being
used as ingredients, they check if these toxins were used in the
extraction of any other ingredients. Other Australian certifiers do not check; a loophole for toxins to silently enter products which still get labelled 'certified organic'.
So next time you see a company or product range claiming to be
'certified organic', take a closer look and see if their claim is real.
- Are all the products certified, each one bearing the logo of a reputable certifier like ACO?
- Do they use synthetic ingredients?
(eg. vitamins, surfactants, proteins etc)
We are 100% cruelty free. Neither our products nor our ingredients have been tested on animals. Some companies still employ this cruel practice.
We are 100% vegan. Using animal parts for products or packaging is cruel, unhealthy and unnecessary.
We are 100% palm oil free. Look for palm oil, palmitate or simply "vegetable" oil on labels. Some things like glycerine can be derived from palm oil
without mentioning it on the label. We investigate our suppliers and
their ingredients before purchasing.

Third Stone Botanicals Holistic Body Care has been created by qualified naturopath and homeopath, Tess Dingle. Tess supports the philosophy that we are holistic beings and our skin must be cared for with our whole body, mind and psyche in consideration. Therefore, Third Stone Botanicals products are formulated to support the healthy functioning of our skin, from within and without.
Only whole and unrefined skin foods are used including medicinal herbs, cold-pressed plant oils and Australian mineral clays. As these ingredients are used in their purest, naturally-occurring state, they provide essential nutrients like anti-oxidants, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, all of which support and nourish the skin. With the addition of pure essential oils and Australian Bush Flower Essences, these nutrients are more effectively absorbed and utilized by our own holistic constitution.
Third Stone Botanicals contains no toxic, synthetic, petrochemical, genetically modified or animal ingredients and is not animal tested. Over 90% of the product range contains at least 50% certified organic ingredients. All packaging is recyclable or reusable – good for us and good for the planet – and all ingredients including certified organic content are listed on each label for your informed choice.
Five Key Points of Difference about TSB:
1) 100% Natural Preservative System: Most natural product ranges are considered to have a short shelf
life without the use of synthetic stabilisers and preservatives (which have
been shown to harm health). TSB guarantees 18 months shelf life from packaging
date by combining the following formulation principles:
- Antioxidants preserve oil
phase/components from rancidity and instability (generation of free radicals).
A (beta-carotene from certified organic carrot root oil), vitamin C (ascorbic
acid and citrus seed extract), vitamin E (natural tocopherol derived from
wheatgerm oil), zinc (from pumpkin seed oil), certified organic green tea,
rosemary and ginkgo biloba extract.
- Antimicrobials prevent the
growth of bacteria, mould and fungus, primarily attracted to the water
phase/component of the product. These include:Certified
organic olive leaf, echinacea, citrus seed extract; naticide (almond extract in
Refining Mist and Cleansing Mask), colloidal silver, essential oils including a
tea tree/lemon preservative mix (not listed in ingredients due to very low
concentration – and lack of space on already crowded label!)
- Certified organic manuka honey in all emulsions contributes potent antibacterial properties
- Packaging minimises
opportunity for oxygen and microorganisms to spoil product – all emulsions are
in pump packs rather than open jars (which are vulnerable to oxidising and
bacteria from fingers).
component of TSB’s natural preservative system is also the next unique point of
2) TSB Contain no water. Most moisturisers and emulsions
contain 75-90% water, partly because it is a moisturiser’s job to deliver
hydration to the skin and partly because this is a very cheap ingredient!
we use certified organic lavender distillate (hydrosol) which is highly
soothing, suitable for all skin types, naturally antibacterial and counters the
need for stronger preservatives to stop the growth of microorganisms in
oil-in-water emulsons (products with a higher water-to-oil ratio). Certified
organic lavender hydrosol makes up 100% of the water phase of TSB moisturisers
(apart from Rosehip Eye Balm which uses the super expensive certified organic
damask rosewater instead).
3) TSB does not use detergent cleansers - even the touted mild ones such as polyglucose. The surfactant
(active cleansing agent) in all TSB cleansers, including shampoos, is certified
organic liquid castile
(a liquid potassium soap of olive and coconut oils, labelled as saponified
olive and coconut oils).
are extremely effective dissolvers of grease which were invented for industrial
use. The sulfates (think SLS) have received the worst reputation in skin care
and shampoos to date. Detergents are powerful enough to dissolve the lipids in
our cell membranes which also stick our epidermal cells together and form the
water-proof barrier that protects us from becoming soggy sponges in damp
conditions and dried prunes in dry conditions, amongst other essential
physiological purposes. Gradual destruction and drying of the skin results from
repeated or prolonged use of detergent cleansers (just think of your hands
after washing up without gloves for too long – first they wrinkle up, then the
skin starts to fray and peel).
Castile is a very traditional gentle soap cleanser originating from the Castile region
where olives have been grown for centuries. Castile is effective at dissolving
surface dirt and oil but is not powerful enough to dissolve the lipids in your
skin. This enables the protective acid mantle and beneficial infection-fighting
microbes to return rapidly after cleansing.
4) The unique combination of certified organic herbal
extracts in TSB products performs multiple roles:
- Antioxidant and antimicrobial herbs preserve the product and counteract oxidative skin damage (ageing)
and skin infections such as acne and fungal overgrowth like candida (olive
leaf, echinacea, citrus seed, rosemary, green tea)
- Emollient herbs sooth the
skin via mucilage (jelly-like) production (marshmallow, aloe vera, slippery
- Anti-inflammatory herbs soothe the body’s hypersensitive immune response that causes inflammation
- Cell repairing and renewing herbs help to heal damaged skin from UV, scarring, wounds, drugs and
poisons (gotu kola, horsetail, ginseng, comfrey, aloe vera, pomegranate)
- Astringent herbs help to
tighten and tone skin (cucumber, sage)
5) Australian Bush Flower Essences have a unique affinity with our physiology, working in a truly
holistic way on our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. TSB uses the
following in various products:
- She Oak
– helps retain moisture and vitality
- Green –
used for healing disturbances of the mucous membrane, internally and externally
– for cleansing, of course!
mulla – for protection from UV radiation and EMR
Corners – for confidence, optimism and self-esteem – can’t hurt in products
made with love!
others such as macrocarpa (exhaustion) and bottlebrush (in this case for
maternal bonding) in the Birthing Refresher Mist
point about all this: why keep repeating “certified
organic” and what is the point anyway? Yes, there are many brands throwing
the organic buzzword around now and it is easy to become complacent about it.
However, there is a world of difference between using the word organic in a
product title or description and including perhaps 1% organic content
(sometimes nil) and the integrity needed to use a majority of agriculturally
certified organic ingredients, which are vastly more expensive and less
polluting to both the environment and our bodies and hence promote very real
sustainability. This is an issue which does NOT deserve our complacency. Inform
your friends and customers and be passionate about the huge potential of the
organics industry. Look for products which clearly indicate which ingredients
and what percentage are certified organic (as TSB does) or are entirely certified
(requiring 95% certified organic content excluding water )– but be wary, if 90%
of the product is water, only 5% of the entire product need be of
agriculturally certified organic origin to gain certified organic status – look
for substance in the ingredients.
