EVOHE is a revolution in 100% natural, luxurious, organic skin care. Conceived in the hills of Northern NSW ten years ago by husband and wife team, Meg and Barry Forrester, EVOHE embodies a new generation of business owners – those committed to transforming the beauty industry through innovation, not compromise.

Armed with an innovative spirit and ardent desire to be the change she wanted to see in the beauty industry, Meg designed a skin care range that encourages men and women to self-nurture sustainably.

Barry, an organic chef, encouraged Meg to take her formulations even further. Inspired by his uncompromising passion for ingredients of exemplary quality, Meg scoured the globe for pristine environments where the purest and most prized antioxidants, Australian Bush Flower Essences, Naturopathic Herbs, and skin-restoring actives could be found.

Ethos

“I wanted to create a beautiful skin care range that was as luxurious as top global brands, but wouldn’t harm the environment, was kind to animals and did not use animal products. A skincare range that women with valid ethical concerns, could embrace as a viable alternative to mainstream skincare.

If EVOHE’s decisions had all been financial, instead of personal, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Not only does every product possess incredible purity and efficacy, they offer an indulgent experience and afford us and our much-loved customers, the luxury of radiant skin and a clean conscience.”

— Meg Forrester – CEO and CoFounder

Our No Nasties Guarantee

Ingredients matter a lot to us. And we know they do to you too. It’s our mission is to formulate the highest quality, most nutritious and purest skin care and cosmetics so you can nourish your skin in the safest, healthiest way possible. We do this by vehemently avoiding cheap, harmful ingredients that should never be found on the skin.

All our products are 100% free from palm oil derivatives, palm derived glycerine, synthetic fragrances, colours or preservatives, parabens, animal derivatives, soap, retinol, sulphates, mineral oils, petrochemicals, propylene glycol, lanolin, triethanolamine or phthalates.

Mother Nature is an incredible treasure chest of natural ingredients – in fact, she really has done all the hard work for us.  We deliver complete nutrients from the plant to your skin, meaning our products are real and all natural. The ingredients are formulated with minimal processing so they can remain bioactive – that is, they have an active and potent effect on skin tissue and cells that works to plump, nourish and hydrate.

The skin thrives under natural ingredients like floral, berry, butter and nut extracts, which are synergistic with the skin and deliver essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants that work to positively address many different skin types and issues. Your skin will reap the benefits of densely packed concentrations. They work on the whole family, regardless of gender or age.

“When we began EVOHE, we didn’t want to conform with what every other skin care brand was doing. We observed practices that weren’t ethical. Tricks of the trade that meant you could avoid declaring preservatives, for example, underhanded methods that the consumer would never know about – but we would.”

— Barry Forrester, EVOHE Co-Founder

Our Natural Advantage

EVOHE has pioneered the concept of sustainable luxury in beauty with a determination never to compromise. The result is a skin care range without parallel, one that is now globally recognised – from Japan to Europe, Australasia and the USA – as the benchmark in 100% natural, exclusive and sustainable skincare.

It’s this uncompromising commitment to 100% natural, safe and intensely effective ingredients, that sets EVOHE apart in the beauty industry. Our loyal fans will emphatically report that EVOHE products work and are noticeably more effective than their synthetic counterparts – even in addressing extreme skin imbalances like acne, eczema, psoriasis.

Palm Oil Free Commitment

Our creativity and passion has supported us to uncover luxurious, sustainable alternatives to palm oil (and its by-product glycerine), the cultivation of which is forcing orangutans to the brink of extinction and orphaning their tiny babies. Read more here.

Our Suppliers

It’s important to us that you trust everything about EVOHE – including those we collaborate with. So, for every extract, raw material and essence that goes into an EVOHE product, we conduct an extensive supplier audit, ensuring their ethics, sourcing methods and day-to-day actions in business are aligned with the EVOHE Conscious Living Checklist.

We have abandoned many opportunities that made ‘good business sense’ on paper, for collaborators and suppliers whose main concern was the bigger picture (sustainable, cruelty-free practices) – NOT just the bottom line.

Partnerships

Orangutan Foundation International Australia

If you have yet to hear about wonderful organisations that are directly helping Orangutans on the ground in Indonesia, you may wish to visit www.orangutanfoundation.org.au

Orangutan Foundation International Australia’s (OFIA) mission is to support and continue the orangutan and forest conservation efforts initiated by Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas in Kalimantan, Borneo. Dr Galdikas, who is Patron and a Board Member of OFIA, is an internationally renowned environmentalist, anthropologist and orangutan expert.

OFIA has two core campaigns; caring for orphaned and displaced orangutans at the OFI Care Centre & Quarantine in Pasir Panjang Village, Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo; and, securing habitat for their future release.

OFI currently care for 330+ orangutans at their Care Centre. These orangutans have been orphaned due to the destruction of their habitat for palm oil plantations, illegal logging, & mining. Without the OFI Care Centre, these beautiful, gentle apes would be homeless and more than likely dead. The Care Centre is a half-way house for orangutans, providing them with food, shelter and love along with the skills they will need when they are old enough to be released back into the wild.

If you wish to make a direct difference to this urgent cause, you can support either of these outstanding organisations – even small donations are welcome.

Located in Miami on Queensland’s stunning Gold Coast, EVOHE HQ houses production, despatch, office and management functions. Nearby, one of Queensland’s leading ISO-accredited laboratories tests all EVOHE products, guaranteeing their purity and ensuring your peace of mind when using them on even the most sensitive skin.

EVOHE has pioneered the concept of sustainable luxury in beauty, with a determination never to  compromise. The result is a skincare range without parallel, one that is now globally recognised – from Japan to Europe, Australasia, and the USA – as the benchmark in 100% natural, exclusive and sustainable skincare.

What’s in a name?

EVOHE (pronounced E-VO-HE) is a Greek word of Ancient Egyptian origin, meaning ‘Celebration of Life’. EVOHE embodies our belief that we are not separate to our environment, but intrinsically connected – an equal component of the biosphere.  As such, the name EVOHE acts as a guiding principle and serves as a daily reminder for us, to respect and promote the balance between man, woman and earth.

The EVOHE logo supports this concept of ‘oneness’, depicting Ouroboros – the circular snake. As one of the most ancient symbols on earth, the Ouroboros represents the eternal cycle of renewal and our desire to create indulgent, sustainable skin care.

‘EVOHE’ epitomises the groundbreaking feats that are possible when two or more people of like mind, join together and dedicate themselves to creating a tomorrow more beautiful and radiant than today.

The True Cost Of Beautiful Skin

Today, most skin care brands hide the true toll their products are having on the environment, fauna, laboratory animals and your family’s long-term health. At EVOHE however, we’re passionate about being transparent and honest about what we do, so you can make informed choices.

Rather than focus on the ‘ugly’ side of the beauty industry, we use it to fuel our passion for positive change. Our supporters – the new wave of ‘compassionate consumers’ – are becoming increasingly savvy to the true environmental, social and health costs of mainstream beauty brands – and are looking for viable, luxurious alternatives.

The world now wants powerful, innovative natural skin care – not empty promises. Consumers are tired of airbrushed marketing campaigns and endless lists of unpronounceable chemical ingredients. Finally, there is an exciting, indulgent alternative in EVOHE, where the philosophy of ‘sustainable luxury’ guides everything we do.

At every stage of EVOHE’s evolution, we have steadfastly held to our values. Many times, it would have been easier to go with a cheaper, less effective ingredient. Even when faced with seemingly no option but to compromise, we’ve resolutely held our ground. In the process, we’ve discovered groundbreaking ways to create more efficacious, kinder skincare.

When you use EVOHE, you know unequivocally, that the true cost of your beautiful, glowing skin, really does begin and end with the price tag.

Amazing feats of formulation

We have used creativity and passion, to uncover luxurious, sustainable alternatives to palm oil (and its by-product glycerine), the cultivation of which is forcing orangutans to the brink of extinction and orphaning their tiny babies.
