Super Sensitive Skin Inspires… Paleo Skincare

Snippet

Crystal Fieldhouse

“I have super sensitive skin and struggled with acne and dermatitis for over 15 years.”

Failing to find a moisturiser that met my personal standards and didn’t irritate my skin or flare up my skin issues, I started making my own, with great results. But knowing the frustration, shame and embarrassment that many people with problem skin go through, I wanted to help others in the same situation as myself.

Which led me to spend 12 months researching and developing our unique range of Ecology moisturising creams.

The Ecology Creams are designed to mimic our skin’s natural oils, they are simple and made by hand with carefully selected high quality and organic ingredients. Our products are definitely outside the box of conventional skincare …and the amazing thing is they work!  We’ve helped hundreds of people all over the world, who report softer, smoother, calmer looking skin.

It started with moisturisers and now at Ecology Skincare we offer a range of simple, natural skincare products that are perfect for people with sensitive skin and skin issues like eczema, dermatitis and premature ageing.

Buy The Change

Srey Oun lives in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

She was the victim of an acid attack 15 years ago that completely blinded her. She keeps her face covered because it is severely disfigured. This tragedy could have stopped her but it didn’t. Using only her sense of touch she crochets beautiful bags. Her niece sews in the linings and zippers. Because of her partnerships with Buy The Change and other social change based companies, she is able to support herself, her daughter and her elderly mother. She is committed to keeping her daughter in school and the Buy The Change Foundation has given her grants to help make that possible.

Srey Oun is seen with her daughter and Buy The Change co-founder, Shanan Bunzendahl in this photo.

Every product we sell is hand crafted by a woman working to empower herself and her family. With income and education for the next generation, everything is possible. Our job is to connect these amazing women with our amazing socially conscious customers who want to use their buying power to change lives.

Dogs In Motion Canine Rehabilitation

Because I believe the bond between a dog and owner is sacred, and  once you have experienced this – itsa love like no other. When our dogs are injured or sick, its soul destroying.  We feel helpless and responsible and just want them to get better

Why do I do what i do? Anything I can do to nurture this bond – by providing physiotherapy to the dogs and helping the owners to get their dogs back on track.

B the Change! Be a B Corp(oration)

The B Corp movement is a systemic solution to address society’s greatest challenges by offering a concrete, market-based and scalable resolution.

Success in business has a new definition and it’s being redefined by a global movement of Certified B(enefit) Corporations. These business leaders are shifting the paradigm to benefit all business stakeholders, not just shareholders. They are voluntarily meeting higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance, distinguishing themselves in a cluttered marketplace.

Avoid Greenwashing – B Authentic.

As the market becomes flooded with pretenders, becoming a B Corporation is a way to stand out and let everyone know that your company has full transparency and has been third party verified. It helps set you apart as a thought leader, distinguishes your business in a crowded market, and helps associate your brand with some of the most socially and environmentally responsible companies on the planet.

The particular benefits that are most attractive to you will vary depending on your industry, your goals and objectives, and where entering a new market, or planning for succession.

Australia and New Zealand

B Lab Australia & NZ had its official launch at the end of August 2014 in both Melbourne and Sydney, building enthusiasm for the movement.  of companies have logged on to check out the assessment and measure where they lie as compared to similar B Corp companies.
To keep the momentum going, B Lab hosts Morning Teas twice a month in both Melbourne and Sydney to give interested people the chance to get to know the movement a bit better and ask any questions they have in person. There is always a Certified B Corp present to give further advice on their certification experience. Check out B Corp at bcorporation.net.au and follow the link to our events page.

These events can be found on our Evenbrite page here: http://www.eventbrite.com.au/o/b-lab-australia-amp-new-zealand-6213342057
