Conscious Living Checklist


Conscious-Living-Checklist-300817

The EVOHE Conscious Living Checklist has evolved out of personal lifestyle choices to live consciously in relationship with local and global community and with the natural environment of our earth. Our commitment to the Checklist creates our strong foundation.

Director, Meg Forrester, provides an insight into the who, what and why’s that are behind EVOHE.

Naturally preserved and free from synthetics

Our preservation system varies with each product but in general, the preservation system is a blend of herbal extracts and essential oils, that are well know for their antibacterial, yeast and mould properties.

EVOHE Seriously Supports Orangutan Protection

EVOHE Seriously Orangutan Friendly

We have done extensive research to ensure that none of our ingredients include, promote or support the use of palm in any way!

Help us support orangutans. Here are a few organisations that can give you some practical steps that will make a difference.

 

Certified organic, fair trade ingredients

We are clear about the percentage of Certified Organic ingredients we use throughout the EVOHE product range. However, we do not choose an ingredient simply because it has a “certified organic” stamp on it. Our investigation of ingredients goes beyond this. There are some ingredients in our range which we consciously chose in favour of a Certified Organic option. For example, our White Clay is Australian however not Certified Organic. We preferred in this instance to use an Australian ingredient. Our herbs are Naturopathic Grade NOT the certified organic cosmetic grade versions. This is because we believe that the naturopathic herbs are a lot more potent and beneficial in our topical treatments. We also use Colloidal Silver which is not available Certified. We did not want to omit a fantastic ingredient such as this simply because it didn’t have Certified Organic status.
Fair-Sourcing of ingredients, is an important value. Our Brazilian ingredients, for example, are from a company who has been involved with the local communities in Brazil for over 50 years. They have assisted 1000’s of families out of poverty and provided alternative income sources to cutting down the forest for money.

When it comes to rare botanicals in delicate environments like the Arctic Cloudberry seed, we honour the yearly restrictions and we actively support the preservation of these areas. Our Cloudberry seed is hand harvested and produced in a ZERO effluent manufacturing facility.

The Swiss Edelweiss is being organically farmed in order to bring it off the endangered species list. BIOSWISS monitor this process with diligence that is ensuring the protection of alpine heritage. We enjoy being part of this global community and supporting initiatives such as these

Vegan Tick and Cruelty Free

Vegan TickEVOHE products have the Vegan tick. Not only for the fact that we do not use animal derived ingredients or ingredients which have been tested on animals but for the element of compassion which is associated with the Vegan philosophy. EVOHE is an Accredited Cruelty-Free Company.

Minimised, comprehensive range

Happy BabyOur simple logic is that different sets of products for you, your partner and the kids is simply not sustainable. It’s expensive and it adds unnecessary clutter to your life. We believe that you don’t need a separate product for this, that and the other thing. We actually think that this is just another marketing tactic to make you buy more products. Not only that, you are encouraged to use plenty so that you have to come back more frequently.

EVOHE products are safe for everyone: men, women and children of all ages. EVOHE products are potent and have multiple applications. You really can use them sparingly and for many skin types and conditions.

Feel free to connect with us if you have queries or concerns. We are happy to help.

Recyclable Packaging

recyclable-packagingWe have found there is a lot of confusion around what is recyclable in Australia and to make it more confusing it changes from council to council. We suggest it’s best to get in contact with your local council to find out what can and can’t be recycled. Most of EVOHE’s containers are made from either glass or recyclable PET. Our pumps whilst made of recyclable materials are unlikely to be recycled through the regular curbside recycling system due to their size and shape, we believe the same goes with our small makeup containers.  All of our boxes are printed on sustainably sourced recyclable cardboard and we use vegetable oil (soy based) inks for printing. This issue is important to us as we have deep respect for our environment and are enthusiastic about new finding ways to minimise wastage and ensure we are using materials that support our goal in keeping our footprint as small as possible.

Australian Made and Australian Owned

EVOHE Australia Owned MadeEVOHE is proudly Australian owned and made.
We manufacture and process all our products under one roof in Burleigh Heads, QLD.
We use as many native Australian extracts as possible and we are so proud of this.

 

 

Ethical and sustainable business practises

Earth friendly

EVOHE joins a new generation of independent businesses that are serious about an evolution in ethical and sustainable business practices and the production of quality, natural products.

We are not a corporate company with a million dollar marketing campaign. We rely on our products to do what we say they are going to do. In order to achieve these results, we focus on providing value for money NOT on the bottom line. Finding a balance between the “mainstream business world”and running a business based on ethics has its challenges. But wherever we have sought alternatives we have found them. Standards in all industries are on the rise and we enjoy surrounding ourselves with other ethical and genuine business people who are offering products of true value.

Not tested on animals

Not Tested On Animals

EVOHE is serious about being cruelty-free and we will never test our products on animals.

We test our products on willing participants and staff members.
