PURE NATURAL ORGANIC BY NATURE

FAQ & NATURAL BABY SKIN CARE TIPS

 

AUSTRALIAN MADE & OWNED – WHAT DOES THAT REALLY MEAN?

At Bubba Organics, it means just that! We are proud members of the Australian Made & Owned Campaign, guaranteeing that all our products are made to the highest of Australian Standards, right here in Melbourne, Australia.

 

BUBBA ORGANICS IS ANIMAL-FRIENDLY – WHERE DO YOU TEST?

We believe that the best natural baby skin care products should be made cruelty-free. That’s why our premium products are never, ever tested on animals. Instead, our range has been extensively tested on our families, friends, and excited new mums in our local community looking for truly 100% natural skin care.  From babies and toddlers to teens, mums, dads and grandparents, our products have been used on rashes, flaky, dry, eczema-prone and extra-sensitive skin, with amazing results and positive feedback.

 

IS BUBBA ORGANICS PACKAGING RECYCLABLE?

Yes! At Bubba Organics, we make a conscious effort to tread lightly and protect our environment.

We use only recyclable materials for all our bottles, brochures, point of sale material, and packaging.

 

WHAT IS FSC & PEFC?

FSC: The Forest Stewardship Council is an international organisation promoting responsible forest management.

PEFC: The Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes is an international, non-profit organisation that is made up of representatives of the forest products industry.

 

We have worked hard to source and use local FSC and PEFC accredited suppliers to ensure all of our packaging is recyclable, and our range is as Earth-friendly as possible.

 

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SUITABLE FOR GREYWATER SYSTEMS?

At Bubba Organics, the Earth matters! Our baby skin care ingredients are natural and organic by nature, which means they’re biodegradable and suitable for greywater use.

 

MANY BABY SKIN CARE COMPANIES USE WATER AS THEIR BASE INGREDIENT. WHAT DOES BUBBA ORGANICS USE?

Water is a popular filler in skin care. It’s a cheap option which is why you will find that almost all skin care companies use it as their main ingredient or the base for their products. In fact, in some skin care products, water can account for up to 80% of the total contents in the bottle or tube!

 

At Bubba Organics, we promise you premium products that gently and effectively care for your family’s skin. The main ingredient (which is the first item listed under ‘Ingredients’ on the label) occupies the most space in your bottle or tube, so it plays a vital role. For us, water just doesn’t cut it! Instead, we use Aloe vera as our base ingredient because it has soothing, calming and healing properties, helping to moisturise, nourish and reduce skin irritations.

 

ARE YOUR INGREDIENTS ETHICALLY SOURCED AND FAIR TRADE?

Bubba Organics prioritises environmentally and socially conscious practices in all we do, so we ensure all of our ingredients are locally sourced from reputable and ethical suppliers. As the Fair Trade certification is predominantly recognised in the food industry and has only just recently moved into the cosmetic industry, these suppliers don’t offer the fair trade certification for their cosmetic ingredients, but rather hold relevant industry certifications.

 

IS YOUR SHEA BUTTER REFINED OR UNREFINED?

The shea butter we use is refined in order to comply to EU cosmetic standards, which is the most recognised global cosmetic safety authority.

 

DO YOU USE PALM OIL IN YOUR PRODUCTS?

No, Palm Oil is not used in Bubba Organics products.

 

WHAT DOES THE EU COSMETIC STANDARD MEAN?

The standards for consumer safety are governed by the European Union’s (EU) Cosmetics Regulation.  Cosmetic products and their ingredients are safe for consumers to use thanks to the industry’s dedication to safety, and European Union (EU) Cosmetics Regulation’s requirement that cosmetics cause no damage to human health.

The overall objective of the cosmetics industry is to produce safe and effective products which meet the needs of consumers. However, the responsibilities of any industry go beyond the purely regulatory requirements. Society now expects companies to behave in a responsible and ethical manner. Such an approach is no longer optional; rather it is part of industry’s contract with society. The cosmetics industry also recognises these expectations and strives to meet them in all its activities. As a result, the EU places a strong emphasis on ensuring ethical behaviour on social, corporate and environmental responsibility.

 

WHY IS THE BABY BOTTOM CREAM MORE EXPENSIVE IN THE TUBE THAN IT IS IN THE BOTTLE?

Our tube is a more expensive offering due to the packaging costs. All our packaging is made here in Australia and as our baby bottom cream is a premium product, we have sourced the highest quality tube available. We have locally designed and made the product box to ensure the tube is protected in the retail environment, in addition to making this an ideal gift option.

 

WHAT ARE THE USES FOR EACH INGREDIENT?

We’re glad you asked! It’s very important to us to be honest, upfront and transparent in all that we do. Take a look at our Ingredients page to learn about every pure, natural ingredient, and what role each plays in our 100% natural skin care formulations.

 

As our ingredients are ALL sourced from nature and are of high quality, we are proud to list them all for you to see, allowing you to make an informed choice. You will also find an ingredients list on every product in our online store{add link so Shop page}, exactly as they would appear on the label, to assist with your purchase decision.

 

Quick tip: Keep an eye out for products that only list “active ingredients” – this can be a tactic used by skin care companies who want to hide certain ingredients.

 

BUBBA ORGANICS IS KNOWN FOR NO “HIDDEN NASTIES.” WHAT ARE YOUR PRODUCTS FREE FROM?

We promise that Bubba Organics will always be Pure, Natural & Gentle, free from chemical nasties such as: Parabens, Petroleum, Sulphates (SLS), Mineral Oils, Synthetic Colours and Artificial Fragrance.  We also omit known irritants such as cocamidopropyl betaine and polysorbates.

 

WHAT DOES ORGANIC BY NATURE MEAN?

Organic describes things that are natural or related to nature. The word is commonly used to mean ‘healthful’ or ‘close to nature.’ It is also used to describe foods grown without artificial pesticides or fertilisers.

 

Every ingredient in our range has been sourced from nature which is where our byline ‘Pure, Natural, Organic by Nature’ comes from.

 

IS IT SAFE TO USE BABY WRAPS FOR SWADDLING MY BABY?

There are many ways to swaddle babies by using blankets or wraps and doing so can assist with settling your baby. But before swaddling your baby, we highly recommend visiting the Royal Children’s Hospital information page here to learn about safe swaddling practices. It’s important that your baby is wrapped correctly to allow for healthy hip development.

 

Bubba Organics Organic Baby Wraps are light, breathable, stretchy and super soft.  They have been knitted from GOTS certified 100% organic cotton yarn that’s been grown without the use of any pesticides or toxic chemicals. Made with an extra-generous 100cm x 120cm of super-soft fabric, our versatile baby wraps are ideal for swaddling, and also perfect for use in the bassinet, cot or pram.
