TOTEM ECO ETHOS
We believe that small changes can make a big difference. By changing our habits and making conscious and informed decisions about the products that we use, we can improve our collective mental and physical wellbeing and in doing so, have a positive flow-on effect on our environment. We apply this belief to our brand and all of the products that we make - it’s our Way Of Life!
Founders, husband and wife duo, Toby and Katie Gibson, moved their family from Sydney to Berry in 2019 to live a healthier, more sustainable and eco-friendly way of life. With Toby’s background as a research scientist and Katie working as a hair and makeup artist, they decided to use their collective experience to formulate an award winning range of gentle, nourishing, non-toxic body products packed full of beautiful native Australian ingredients, which are eco-friendly, effective and look & smell amazing. Totem Eco has quickly become recognised as non-toxic, ethical, sustainable and trusted to provide the best natural body care products available.
WHAT MAKES YOU GREEN
We only use clean, all-natural and certified organic ingredients and consciously source Australian native and local raw materials right down to harvesting rainwater for our products and using solar power to run our business.
Our packaging is made from 100% recyclable kraft paper and food grade aluminium. We don’t use plastic and only use eco-friendly postal packaging. We promote sustainability awareness and eco-friendly practices through our social media platforms and believe that having a strong community voice for these values in the presence of our children is one of the most valuable ways to influence our future for the better.
THE TOTEM ECO MAGIC
Totem Eco’s award-winning Australian Natural Deodorant Pastes and Botanical Soaps are infused with Australian native essential oils and formulated with only the best natural and certified organic ingredients. Vegan, cruelty-free and made with love in Australia, our body care products are good for you, good for the planet! Our signature range of natural deodorant pastes are 100% effective and free from aluminium, sweat blockers, artificial fragrances, parabens and other nasties. Suitable for all skin types, we don’t use known irritants such as bicarb, fillers, or anything unnecessary in our formula to keep you feeling great and smelling fresh as a daisy all day long.
