In honor of International Women's Week (#IWD2021), the Zabecca Living Girls are celebrating female founders with the hope to increase visibility of those that #choosetochallange the beauty industry in order to provoke discussions and positive change.
Whether it be eco-friendly packaging, sustainable processes, waste reduction, consumer inclusivity or charitable donations, we believe that many of the brands Zabecca Living supports, and in particular the women behind them, have the power to create positive changes be strong role model for future generations.
AL.IVE BODY - Alisa and Lysandra Fraser
Design Duo and The Block All-Stars, Alisa and Lysandra Fraser's personal care brand, al.ive body, is for the conscious consumer who values high-end design and product integrity.
The earth-inspired range, including naturally derived hand and body wash and lotion, is proudly Australian made, developed using the finest natural ingredients, including essential oils and native botanical extracts, and is palm-oil free. The unique interlocking bottles, personally designed by Alisa and Lysandra, are also 100% recyclable.
The name, al.ive body, was inspired by the twins’ passion for environmental causes that help keep our planet ‘alive’. As designers and entrepreneurs, Alisa and Lysandra are committed to positively influencing the personal care landscape, as well as raising awareness and giving back to the planet. The pair have also partnered with environmental charity One Tree Planted, in which they pledge to plant a tree in Australia for every product purchased.
Founder and mum of three, Kim Peirce, believes everyone should have a space to thrive and be well. With the support of her family, Kim said goodbye to her corporate role and took this ethos to launch Babe Australia with the aim to create a range of beauty and lifestyle products that recharge the body, mind and home.
Babe's luxury soy candles and diffusers are made with the finest quality essential oils, essences and the finest grade botanicals. The brand is proudly certified cruelty free - accredited with Choose Cruelty Free Australia and is vegan-friendly. All of the Babe range is made right here in Melbourne using ethical manufacturing processes and ingredients you can trust.
DAN300 - Daniella Rosen
DAN300is the brainchild of designer Dani Rosen. Founded from humble beginnings in her Sydney apartment in 1999, now the instantly recognisable DAN300 palette and patterned packaging has earned the Fine Arts graduate a name in Australian design. Dani continues to innovate across the beauty and retail sector, constantly moving with current trends but always staying true to the essence in which the company was founded on.
The brand's giftware range, including luxury soaps, hand creams and lip balms, are Australian made, free of nasty sulphates and parabens and made with certified sustainable plant palm base.
Huxter - Claudine Welsh
The Huxter story began when Founder, Claudine Welsh, saw a gap in the market for bespoke and meaningful gift products. Claudine wanted to create beautiful skin care products that showcased her passions for quality, fragrance, art and exceptional style.
Huxter's 100% natural range of individually hand wrapped soap barsfeature original artwork by local Australian artists. Proudly made in Australia through environmentally and animal friendly methods, the long-lasting French triple-milled soap is enriched with nourishing shea butter, creating a rich and creamy lather to leave skin beautifully cleansed and moisturised.
