We fiercely believe in:
Body Positivity & Self Love
Self love is not just for one body type, or skin colour, or sexual orientation, or gender. We are all amazing, beautiful, and have something to offer the world. We are all worthy. There's no wrong way to have a body, all bodies are good and valid, and all bodies deserve to be loved.
Empowering & Supporting Women
We support, and strive to empower women. Women are our community, not our competition. Everyday we are inspired by the amazing women we come across. These women include our wonderful Soda Babes, as well as other women makers being absolute QUEENS and running their own businesses. All women deserve to be lifted by their sisters, including trans women, women of colour, sex workers, women with disabilities, and women from other marginalised groups - ALL women.
One of the co-founders of SCS is a queer woman, and our other co-founder is an ally to the community. We hold LGBTQIA rights dear. So much so, that we've created products celebrating the LGBTQIA community and have donated proceeds to charities assisting Aussie LGBTQIA youth.
Using animal-free cosmetics and bath products is a great way to reduce our impact on the lives of our animal friends, and the environment. All of our products are vegan and cruelty free and never tested on animals. Our raw materials are also purchased from suppliers who also reject animal testing. We've selected vegan substitutes for ingredients which deliver cosmetic benefits that match, or even exceed, those of their animal-derived counterparts.
We can proudly state that, from the day SCS was born, we've put Mother Earth first. We have always used biodegradable glitter (never micro-plastics) in our products, which are made entirely from other readily biodegradable ingredients. Biodegradable cellophane is our first choice for packaging, and we use cardboard and
plastic packaging for the rest. Our parcels are padded out with biodegradable packing peanuts too. Sadly, these measures aren't the standard in the cosmetics industry, though we hope one day they will be. We are small, and we are not perfect, but we're trying our best to make sure we minimise our impact on our planet. If there's something we can be doing better, please let us know!
