Grown Alchemist

Grown Alchemist

Ok, so maybe I’m a little bias here being Australian and all…
But there really are so many great organic beauty companies hailing for my homeland, and I wanted to introduce you to another one: Grown Alchemist.

Let me preface this with the basic checklist; their products are certified organic, not tested on animals, and their really pretty packaging (who doesn’t love an aluminum tube?) is all earth-friendly. But this is just where the love affair starts.

Their products are really beautiful. 
Lightweight creams that keep skin nourished all day, face masks that are effective but don’t irritate, lip balms that taste like real fruit and absorb softly.

The look simple (and minimalist – just how I like it!), but it’s what’s inside that counts! And everyone in the Studio is kind of falling in love with Grown Alchemist too…

  • I totally agree! Since I got my first hand cream as gift from a friend, I’m a huge fan of Grown Alchemist! (And the packaging makes it even better ;) )

  • Sounds delightful. The packaging is really simple & eye-catching. Love that it’s earth-friendly. :]

  • Love Grown Alchemist’s products and packaging – remind me a bit of Aesop. It would be great to see eco-friendly and minimalist brands like these become more popular!

  • Just forget to recycle the packaging (otherwise the sustainable aspect is lost)

    Aveda! Made from certified organic plants and flower sourced from all over the world!????????????????????

  • Grown is THE best! I have their body wash in my shower permanently, partly because it smells and feels so good, but mainly because the bottle looks so good on my shower ledge (hahah!).

  • Im sold because of the name, I just love it. Being organic sold me too haha.

  • I have to get a good creme!

    En France aussi on peux être fiers de nos fabricants et marques naturels de cosmétique. j’ai trouvé il y à peu de temps un site ou tu peux acheter directement aux fabricants, ça s’appelle Slow Cosmétique et j’avoue que je suis un peu tombée dedans. Tu as un choix importants de produits corps, cheveux…

  • I LOVE their products, especially the presentation and gorgeous glass bottles. Unfortunately, can’t use all of them due to being allergic to certain oils and it just feels so unfair. x

  • I use live! live! organics. they are in the east village. amazing eye + lip balm, amazing face/food lotion. lots of good stuff like bee pollen.

  • love their products! have been using them for awhile now and they really are amazing products…gentle on the skin and super effective at keeping skin clear, soft and beautiful. xx

    This is similar looking to Aesop, no?

  • Ditto to the above comment.. This brand is totally copying Aesop but with lower quality ingredients… I have tried their skin care products and broke out in hives all over my cheeks.

    Merci Myriam pour Slow Cosmétiques, je viens aussi de tomber dedans … Ca nous change de toutes ces marques au marketing mensonger qui nous vendent du bio qui n’en est pas !
    Bonne journée

  • I’m so glad they’ve finally made it to the UK. Australia definitely punches above its weight with ecoluxe skincare….I’ve noticed recently that about half the products I use are Ozzie.

  • this definitely packaging reminds me of aesop but in downgraded sense. plus, not just the packaging but ingredients and similar fragrances. some just needs more efforts to be original.
