How Did the Name INSTINKS Come About.
Instinks is not a spelling error, it’s a play on words… Trust your instincts “INSTINKS” and enjoy the latest IN Stinks! Great essential oil blends and great products.
INSTINKS method of soap-making is using the cold-press method. This method creates a biodegradable soap and is not harmful to the environment. There is literally no waste. Everything gets used and turned into beautiful soaps which assists the skin and in turn our feeling of well-being. Every bar of INSTINKS is poured, cut, stamped and packed by hand, here in the the Snowy Mountains of NSW.
We make natural and quality products. In addition there are no nasties in our products as we are extremely diligent in using as many natural ingredients as possible. We do not use Parabens or SLS. The flow-on effect when water is going into our drains and then into our waterways is my way of contributing to our beautiful natural wildlife and waterways. We are against the use of microbeads in products. We use natural exfoliants such as coconut, loofah, beans and other natural items.
Ourpackaging, where possible, is 100% recycled and recyclable or compostable. we continue to research and search for packaging/bottling/labeling solutions that will be fully eco-friendly. We are constantly researching and seeking more efficient methods of production and in turn creating a greater impact in our work practices. Packaging suppliers are coming out with better products daily and as we find better options we switch to them.
We use as many ethically natural and organic ingredients as possible.
Some of these ingredients include, but are not limited to, naturally-occuring glycerine, natural plant-based oils such as coconut oil, olive oil, caster oil, shea, cocoa butters, hemp oil, Apricot kernel oil, and Sweet almond oil. All of these ingredients produce naturally nourishing and moisturizing elements to the skin.
Additionally we use natural essential oils, flowers and spices to add colour and perfume to the products. This allows INSTINKS products to feel absolutely gorgeous, gentle and healing to the skin.
