Nature's Touch

In a world increasingly defined by synthetic ingredients and harsh chemicals, there is a growing movement towards embracing nature's offerings. Natural skin care and washing detergent products are gaining significant popularity due to their countless benefits. We explore the advantages of adopting these natural alternatives, which not only promote overall well-being but also safeguard the environment.

At Home Goods Hardware, we only source the good stuff, selecting the most natural products from around Australia and New Zealand. Recently we introduced our latest arrival, Bondi Wash. Founded by Belinda Everingham, her vision was to introduce beautiful Australian scents and ingredients to the world through a range of very natural products. Explore and shop our great selection of Bondi Wash products across skin care, body wash, eco-friendly products for the kitchen and laundry, plus some gorgeous smelling products for your pooch.

Nurturing Skin Health

Natural skin care products, such as moisturisers, cleansers, and serums, boast significant advantages over their synthetic counterparts. They are typically rich in plant-based ingredients, such as aloe vera, coconut oil, and shea butter, which are gentle on the skin and contain healthful nutrients. These natural ingredients nourish and hydrate the skin, leaving it soft, supple, and radiant. Natural products are also less likely to cause irritation, making them suitable for those with sensitive skin or conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

A team favourite, our selection of WØRKS organic sensory products have been created from inspiration through Scandanavian living, with a balanced, minimal approach. Discover and shop our collection of WØRKS products today. Not only that, all WØRKS formulations are housed in reusable glass and recyclable aluminium vessels, which are the most sustainable options for personal care packaging.Avoiding Harmful Chemicals

Unlike conventional skin care products that often contain harmful chemicals like parabens, sulphates, and artificial fragrances, natural alternatives prioritise clean ingredients. This means they exclude harsh chemicals that can disrupt the body's hormonal balance and potentially contribute to long-term health issues. By choosing natural skincare, individuals can reduce exposure to these harmful substances, promoting a healthier lifestyle.

Which take us to one of our new men's skin care brands, Jackson Miles. Free from all the harmful chemicals and additives, and all made here in Australia, Jackson Miles is the new go to male skin care product and makes for a great gift for him or Dad for Father's Day.

Environmental Sustainability

Natural skin care and washing detergent products not only benefit personal well-being but also have a positive impact on the environment. They are usually made from renewable resources, utilising plant-based, biodegradable, and organic ingredients. These ingredients minimise the buildup of pollutants in waterways, contributing to cleaner ecosystems. Additionally, the production of natural products often employs eco-friendly practices that prioritise efficient resource usage and reduce carbon emissions.

One of our favourite long-standing brands, Ashley & Co from New Zealand, has been with us for a while now and continues to create the most wonderful skin care and washing products.

"Being a small company, we’re nimble and can actively seek to improve the sustainability of our packaging. Our focus is on material stability, sustainability of production, ease of reuse and recycling.

We aim to make simple and effective products with the fewest, and cleanest ingredients. We also formulate locally, in Auckland, so we can regularly test and manage quality."

Ethical Considerations

Choosing natural products extends beyond personal advantages and environmental preservation; it is also ethical. Many natural skincare brands are committed to fair trade, ensuring that ingredients are sourced responsibly and workers receive fair wages. Furthermore, these brands often abstain from animal testing, making their products cruelty-free and aligning with the principles of animal welfare.
