Actions speak louder than words.
We are committed to igniting change within the industry as a pioneer in eco initiatives. These are just some of the ways we’re helping to make a difference.
Plant derived formulations
By sourcing as many ingredients as we can from renewable and sustainable sources, we’re able to continue to improve our formulations and replace synthetically-obtained ingredients as we discover the availability of new plant-based alternatives.
At every opportunity, Natures Organics has maintained its commitment to producing products using recycled materials.
Currently, we use a yearly average of 1483 tonnes of recycled PET plastic and 127 tonnes of recycled HDPE plastic to produce bottles used in our product range. All of our bottles are recyclable after use, which creates an ‘endless bottle’ possibility.
We also use 100% recycled materials for our cartons and 95% recycled materials to produce the cardboard packaging for our dishwasher tablets and laundry powder.
Natures Organics & the Australian Packaging Covenant
Natures Organics is a proud signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant. We are dedicated to being part of the change leading to businesses designing more sustainable packaging while also increasing recycling rates and reducing packaging waste. As part of our partnership, we are committed to the 2025 Australian National Packaging Targets.
These targets include:
- 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging.
- 70% of plastic packaging being recycled or composted.
- 50% of average recycled content included in packaging.
- The phase out of problematic and unnecessary single-use plastic packaging.
Choose Cruelty Free
Natures Organics never tests on animals or uses animal ingredients, and we are adamant that our suppliers also meet these strict standards.
We are certified Choose Cruelty Free (CCF) – an independent, not-for-profit organisation that actively promotes a cruelty-free lifestyle. Choose Cruelty Free certifies companies who are dedicated to producing products that have not been tested on animals and do not contain ingredients that have been tested on animals.
In order to be able to export personal care products to China, it is required that they are tested on animals before being sold. Consequently, Natures Organics has chosen not to export our personal care products to China until this rule is abolished.
Solar Panel installation
Natures Organics has invested in a roof-mounted solar system to source sustainable energy and reduce our impact on the environment. These panels will reduce our carbon emissions by around 1,000 tonnes each year.
The installation of our solar system shows our serious commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and we will continue to develop and implement more solar projects into the business in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions
Natures Organics is accredited Choose Cruelty Free which means that none of our products or their ingredients have been tested on animals and none contain any animal ingredients.
Lately there has been media attention in regards to personal care products which are exported to China. These products are required to be tested on animals before they are allowed to be sold in this market. We have chosen not to export these products to China until this requirement is abolished.
We include preservatives in our products to avoid bacterial and fungal contamination. The growth of these microbes may lead to spoilage of the product but more importantly may expose the user to potential infections, especially those with compromised immune systems. The preservatives we use are included in the smallest amounts possible and we only use preservatives that have been assessed and accepted by European authorities. We regularly review our preservatives in use to ensure any new information that becomes available is taken into account and that we are using the most appropriate preservatives for our products. Until such a time as 100% plant derived technology becomes available, provides an effective result and is affordable, we have no choice but to continue to use these synthetic preservatives. Many scientists believe that although there is a risk of allergic reactions from some of these types of ingredients, the risk to skin and eyes from using a contaminated product is considered to be even greater.
