WHAT MAKES US BETTER
We are purposeful in the way we make our soaps right from sourcing clean
ingredients all the way through to how we package our soaps.
And to make sure we're consistent, we made up our own Quality Method and called it the 3C's – Curate, Chemistry and Create:
1. CURATE ❧ Clean Ingredients
We carefully select our premium, eco-friendly, palm free, vegan and cruelty free ingredients – from the vitamin-rich organic oils to the natural colours and exquisite scents – that meet our high standards of quality and luxury for your skin and body. We build relationships with our Suppliers and Partners and maintain alignment with our values and high standards of clean beauty. We are authentic, committed to honest labelling and constructively promote clean luxury living such as through our blog where we share research studies and insights.
2. CHEMISTRY ❧ Made The Traditional Way
We skilfully handcraft our soaps the traditional way – small batches, cold-process – the way soap used to be made using clean ingredients like organic coconut and olive oils. We then infuse them with skin-loving natural cleansers like kaolin clays, nutrient-rich elements like spirulina and skin-balancing colloidal oatmeals to gently nourish and protect your skin. We smoothly blend these with aromatic essential oils or carefully selected fragrances with activated charcoals to produce lusciously exquisite scents that we think will give you the ultimate essential and sensual self-care experience. Our creations are then left to cure for a minimum of 4 weeks and, just like fine wine, it gets better with age.
3. CREATE ❧ Centrepiece Designs
Our soaps are purposefully designed to be both beautiful and functional led by our in-house Australian Designer, Amiel Dizon, so that you can proudly display them as modern, luxury art centrepieces in your bathroom and indoor amenities. They are developed to be practically useful for you and your family's skin as well as being friendly to our living Earth. We like to call this Clean Luxury. Our original design soaps are packaged using sustainable materials that are recyclable, eco-friendly or have zero-waste target. Crown And Full Moon soaps are exclusively available here in our online Shop, through our approved Stockists and in select Market Stalls.
WHY WE DON'T USE PALM OIL • PALM OIL FREE
When was the last time you looked at the ingredients label on your supermarket soap?
I know right?! If you're like us, we never used to until we did.
Next time, look at the label of your soap bar, you'll find Palm Oil as one of the main ingredients in almost all of them. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has expressed that many products using palm oil aren't clearly labelled.1
Palm Oil and its derivatives can appear hidden behind many names listed below.2
Look out for these ingredients:
|Sodium Palmate||Stearic Acid||Sodium Lareth Sulfate|
|Sodium Palm Kernalate||Vegetable Oil||Sodium Lauryl Sulfate|
|Palm Kernel||Palmityl alcohol||Sodium lauryl lactylate|
A recent 2021 Research Study, conducted by the Institute for Research in Biomedicine, linked fatty acids found in palm oil encourages the spread of cancer – called metastasis – in the mouth and skin.3 Found in many beauty products,4 there are many arguments about the effects of Palm Oil including not being cruelty free due to production putting vulnerable species at risk of extinction5, sustainability and environmental impacts5,6,7 and serious health concerns8 such as being carcinogenic.
While discussions and debates carry on, we want to do the right thing by our customers and avoid Palm Oil and its potential risks altogether – for your safety, security and peace of mind. We stand by our premium quality products, improve clean beauty standards, protect our living Earth and commit to offering you only the best for your body.
