21 GRAMS – Hong Kong based company specialised in making natural deodorants.

The company is dedicated to creating all-natural deodorants, and they work with the motto "Do One Thing & Do It Well". 

Diligently formulated and made in Hong Kong with organic and food-grade ingredients, the deodorant cream contains no additives, parabens, Aluminium salt, silicon (or any other toxic junk like that), but still effectively neutralises body odour and absorbs wetness all day long. 

Out of despair, helping a good friend who could not find any natural deodorants that worked, the two co-founders started to make their own deodorant. The goal was to create an all-natural product that REALLY works but is free of chemicals and toxins. It took them over a year to fix the right formula and pick the best ingredients (one founders years at Cambridge University as a chemist and the others hard work on studying essential oils finally paid off). They say:
"I will never forget the radiant smile of my dear friend on her first odor-free day."
Since then the deo cream has become a loving gift for friends and families, and all the positive feedback over the years have encouraged them to find a way to share this gem with others in need - it is just too good to be kept only to themselves!  

 

ALLUVIA – Handmade UTZ certified chocolate from Vietnam.

All cocoa & chocolate products of this brand come from a small village in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam, called Cho Gao, Tien Giang.

The chocolate is hand crafted and the cacoa harvested by very hard-working farmers, continuously innovative and creative while working in their land.

The company mission is to promote their cacao and chocolate of original natural quality, with unique and deep passionate flavour from their region, with sustainable development & professional services.

 

COCONUT TREE – hair and skin products made in Australia from Fair Trade sourced coconut oil from the Salomon Islands.

Coconut Tree Skinfood + Hairfood is a blend of pure, certified organic, ethically sourced oil enriched with botanical extracts, natural oils, butters, vitamins and antioxidants, all selected for their deeply nourishing, restorative and protective qualities. All products are packed with natural goodness, free from toxic ingredients. This range of products have been inspired by the natural powers of coconut oil to promote healthy, radiant skin and hair. Coconut oil is naturally bursting with essential fatty acids, nutrients and antioxidants, which absorb rapidly to moisturise, nourish and protect skin and hair and give a healthy glow.

The organic coconut oil has been sourced from a Fair Trade venture in the Solomon Islands, that provides rural people in the South Pacific communities with meaningful employment, a regular income, and better living standards.

The pure, certified organic coconut oil in all products has been cold pressed from mature fresh coconuts harvested in the South Pacific. It is untouched by heat or chemical treatment before, during or after pressing, leaving all nutrients intact to nourish skin and hair.
