In this enlightening episode of Skincare Social, we dive into ethics, transparency and ingredients with Lisa Carroll, the driving force behind Native Extracts.

With her profound insight into the phyto-tech world and a staunch advocate for transparency, Lisa shares insights on the complexities of the industry, the importance of traceability and transparency as well as the innovative work being done at Native Extracts.

We close the loop on the Biologi court case and its aftermath, then move onto thought-provoking discussions on:

  • The importance of clear, honest communication about ingredients
  • Navigating the selection of ethical ingredient suppliers
  • Uncovering the hidden gems among Australia’s native ingredients and their sourcing
  • Future directions for Native Extracts and the broader beauty industry

Lisa and I are in total agreement: cutting through the noise with genuine, clear information is essential for guiding consumers toward conscious skincare choices.

Join us as Lisa Carroll unravels the layers of marketing, myths and the path to maintaining true brand values amidst the evolving landscape of the beauty industry.

It’s a deep dive into how integrity, combined with a passion for nature’s offerings, can redefine skincare and wellness for the better.
