Most of the cosmetics we consume in Australia is not only being transported long distances but what goes into our products & who actually produces it is hidden from us.
When you buy from a local company, you are supporting someone who is probably following their dreams and doing something that they love with pride. Compare this to the big chains, whose only care is how to make more money.
Australia makes some of the best…
products in the world, and buying locally can be beneficial to both the environment and your health while it’s putting your dollars into supporting local jobs and our economy directly. Australian products that have been manufactured locally meets the high Australian standards, they come with warranties, and the supplier is just a phone call away.
If you ask yourself, “How can we create a cream or foundation that is so much better than the department store brands?” The answer is “it isn’t hard”.
Small cosmetics businesses are more likely to use high quality, natural ingredients than the big chains. Especially because the typical mass-marketed facial cream or foundation is full of petroleum that does nothing for your skin. It is created to look nice and smell nice, but the priority is to keep the cost of goods low so the profits are high.
Research published by the Industry Capability Network shows that for every $1 million of new or retained manufacturing business in Australia, the following effects flow through the economy:
• $333,900 worth of tax revenue generated
• $985,000 worth of value-added generated
• $95,000 worth of welfare benefits saved
• 10 full-time jobs created
Lastly, another big issue that we try to make people have more aware of, is animal testing in the beauty industry issue (as well as all other industries of course) – 99.9% of the time, when you buy Australian cosmetics from a small business, that manufactured here, down under, you will guarantee yourself that that product is animal-friendly:)
Clearly, Alit Cosmetics products made here in Australia:)
Keep it local, It makes sense to buy things that have been made right here in Australia.
Consciously purchase Australian-made and grown products.
It will make you feel better, inside and out.
