We are extremely proud to feature in Harper’s Bazaar clean make up line up, “The Best Organic, Natural, and Non-Toxic Makeup”. Our best-selling Oat Milk Foundation is included in the top non-toxic products Harper’s Bazaar listed, that you need to build the ultimate natural makeup kit. “One of the things people don’t realize about clean makeup is that it is an extension of skincare,” says Tara Foley, founder of clean skincare retailer Follain. “A truly clean makeup product is going to nourish your skin.”

building a sustainable store

Nurturing the community through healthy organic products, one of Melbourne’s favourite organic supermarkets and holistic health centers, Terra Madre are thoughtfully adapting their business to better the earth. Co-owner of Terra Madre, Ryan talks about how they reduce waste, energy and greenhouse gas emissions across all areas of their business. “Organic food and sustainability go hand in hand. Organic food isn’t just about pesticide free produce, it’s about also looking after our plant and the world we live in.” From trading food scraps for chicken eggs, to investing in biodegradable packaging, Terra Madre truly practice what they preach.     “We are always looking to reduce our packaging.” Ryan explains, “Our main fruit and veg grower packages our orders in reusable foldable crates, polystyrene gets sorted and sent back to the farmers, along with the plastic shrink wrap used to protect the palettes.”
