Biome develops completely cruelty-free and palm oil free face cream

Australia’s leading eco store, Biome, has expanded its range of cruelty-free beauty products with the launch of its palm oil free Light Face Cream.

Enriched with nourishing plant oils and shea butter, the light face cream formulation features nourishing and beneficial ingredients including aloe vera, hemp seed oil and jojoba oil.

Founder of Biome, Tracey Bailey, said Biome’s Light Face Cream was created especially for conscious consumers.

“The nourishing moisturiser contains 100 per cent natural and organic ingredients, and is palm oil free and vegan making it suitable for consumers conscious of animal cruelty and the environmental issues associated with palm oil,” she said.

“Palm oil free means a product is completely cruelty-free as the production of the product’s ingredients hasn’t contributed to the harming or endangerment of vulnerable species. Palm oil is directly linked to the death of over 6,000 orangutans each year and the decimation of over 300 football fields of rainforest every hour.”

“It took much dedication to create a moisturiser that was free from palm oil, as most contain a palmoil derived emulsifier. “Palm oil is a high yield and low cost versatile ingredient used to manufacture over 200 ingredients many of which are used in the beauty industry to formulate skin care products.”

Biome’s Light Face Cream is available in scented and unscented options with the scented formulation containing an essential oil fragrance of Orange, Ylang Ylang, Cardamom and Jasmine, reminiscent of Morocco.

The natural formulation is non-greasy and fast absorbing making it suitable to wear under makeup, and the product is housed in a zero waste reusable and recyclable glass bottle.

Already making waves in the beauty industry, Biome’s scented Light Face Cream has been selected as a finalist for the Pure Beauty Global Awards 2019 – shortlisted from 500 entries globally.

Biome Light Face Cream retails for $34.95 and is available in Biome’s four Brisbane stores and online at
