Sage Beauty is a Greenwave accredited Business – Waverley Council
The following outlines our business practises in order to help protect our planet from Global Warming and over-pollution.
We want to make a difference, and we hope that you do too!
We purchase 100% of Pure Green Energy with Energy Australia, which means that we pay into the energy grid sourced from wind and solar power, not coal. We are also on 100% pure energy at home where the towels are laundered in Tri Nature phosphate free laundry powder and Sonett Laundry Liquid. We have water savers on our taps and our lights are low wattage.
We use corn made bio-degradable, compostable “non-plastic” bags throughout the salon for all our waste. Made in Australia and Norway. Our bins are made from sustainable timber. Our t-shirts are made from organic cotton.
We Recycle everything we possibly can and all our skincare suppliers use recyclable containers for their products.
We use unbleached calico strips for our waxing, so that we know that bleach and similar chemicals are not involved in the production process and as well, the calico breaks down more easily and naturally into the earth, without polluting it with more synthetic chemical waste.
Our Wax for our treatments is petroleum free and resin based. Our lash and brow tints are not tested on animals.
Our Talcum powders are petroleum free and made from organic cornstarch.
Our Nail polishes are ButterLondon, and are 3 -7 free – formaldehyde, toluene and Dibutyl Phthalate free, thus containing no carcinogenic chemicals – often in nail polish to prevent it from chipping.
We use pure essential oils in our oil burners.
We use Tri Nature (made in Australia) and Sonett (made in Germany) products to clean our salon every day, all phosphate free, biodegradable, safe for kids and the waterways. These are also very efficient and price competitive.
We also offer these to you to use in your homes and businesses.
We provide Australian made MV Organic Skincare and body care products, which are a highly regarded skincare system in the Natural Skincare industry.
We provide Dr.Hauschka Skincare, Body care and Bath care products which are 100% certified natural as recognised by BDIH, a federal association of German made products whose “Guidelines for Natural” are the most selective in the world. These ingredients are sourced from communities all around the world and helps them to thrive.
We also stock Eminence Organic Skincare from Hungary, and we love the fact that they belong to a Co-Op which they support to plant a tree each time you buy each one of their products.
We stock Rohr Natural Skincare, which is also made in Australia from indigeneous wild-crafted ingredients and full of locally grown anti-oxidants – superb for teenagers and adults alike.
We offer Weleda Products for babies and mothers, as these contain natural and organic ingredients and are BDIH rated (see above).
Our core Make Up range is Australian made and much loved Inika Cosmetics – these natural halal and vegan certified mineral liquid and powder foundations are beautiful on the skin, dewy and hydrating and their eye make up is sensational, with colours you can play with and blend into your own unique palette. They have many more products which are all cruelty free.
We also provide Make-up from Dr Hauschka which is chemical free and allergy-free.
We have plant wax candles made from Palm Oil, sourced from Plantation Forests, not Old growth forests. Their fragrances contain 85-100% essential oil. We have brands such as Voluspa and Living Light.
We offer Nesti Dante Botanical Soaps and a whole lot more, all sourced from ethical companies with thought for the environment.
