'Fragrance' is listed as one of the ingredients, why don't you use natural essential oils instead?
Essential oils give products a lovely fragrance and are deemed natural. However, many people have severe reactions and allergies to essential oils, even in small amounts. Our Golden 8 range of products is made for people with sensitive skin, therefore we have made the conscious decision to formulate without them. Our products are formulated by one of Australia's best formulators who has extensive expertise in sensitive skin and selected our yuzu fragrance that is not only stable and suitable for all skin types, but particularly sensitive skin. The amount used is minimal and at a level deemed safe for all skin types, including eczema. We get so many compliments on the smell of our products and we have Yuzu to thank - a citrus fruit with undertones of grapefruit and mandarin, originated from Japan.
Are your products tested on animals?
Even though our products are not vegan, we never test on animals! Our line of products developed with safe & natural ingredients that are simple and straightforward without requiring the need to test on animals whatsoever! Simplicity is key in a skincare routine for sensitive skin.
Why do I sometimes see white flecks in my Golden 8 Miracle Oil Serum?
The white flecks are what we call 'white gold', as they are an abundance of the super haling Omega 7. Omega 7 (also known as Palmitoleic Acid) is the most anti-microbial fatty acid in our skin, but it diminishes as the body ages.
Crocodile oil has an abundance of Omega 7, which keeps the skin safe from bacterial infection, changes in pigmentation, and plays an important role in maintenance of healthy skin.

How is your crocodile oil sourced and produced?
Our pure Australian Crocodile oil is sourced from crocodile breeding farms that adhere to strict regulations of the CITES Convention.
The CITES Convention is an international agreement. Under this agreement, the Australian Saltwater Crocodile cannot be traded except from government authorized breeding establishments.
Our pure, refined, premium crocodile oil is handmade and processed through a Molecular Distillation Machine with the latest advancement in technology, insuring a pure and effective oil without compromising any of the benefits.
