Love this rub eases my pain every time

New to essential oils and diffusers

I came across Moonhaven while researching essential oils. I wasn't sure what to get and Gillian called me and gave me some tips. I ended up getting the ultrasonic mist diffuser and am very happy with it. It's very easy to use and I love the oils that I got as well.

My skin loves it

I am so enjoying using this skin care pack

Microbeads – Finally Banned by Coles & Woolworths

microbeads are killing wildlife and polluting our waterways

microbeads are killing wildlife and polluting our waterways

Coles & Woolworths Ban Microbeads

So they’re finally banning microbeads in the products they put on their shelves!
About time Coles and Woolies…

But what about the big brand cosmetic companies like Unilever, Johnson & Johnson, L’Oreal, Nutrogena and even The Body Shop etc?

They’re still making products with these wildlife killing particles in them .. and while looking for alternatives may not make the change to less damaging solutions until the end of 2017!!!

Big Brand Companies Should Be Proactive Not Reactive

Isn’t it time theses huge companies were proactive and not just reactive..waiting until public and scientific opinion force them to change their ways?

There is just no need to use polluting, wildlife-killing plastic microbeads in skin care products.

Jojoba Beads -A  Safe, Natural Alternative

Moistursing-Facial-Scrub

Moon Haven’s Moisturising Facial Scrub is made with environment and skin friendly natural Jojoba Beads

There are safe, natural alternatives available … but of course they cost more!

For the record at Moon Haven we use gorgeous, natural and totally biodegradable jojoba oil beads as our exfoliant in our Moisturising Facail Scrub with Australian Clays.

They’re beautiful spherical, skin friendly, nutrient rich balls of wax that gently exfoliate your skin… the right way.

We’re not perfect…but we do work at being the best we can be

Admittedly in the early days of Moon Haven we used the polyethylene micro beads (we didn’t want to use harsh irregular shaped exfoliants like almond kernels or walnut shells) but we switched over to jojpba beads as soon as we understood the issues that microbeads were creating.

We know we’re not perfect…but we consciously strive to formulate the very best products for our clients.
So when we find out something is not ethical, effective or best practice we’ll make the changes as fast as we possible can.
