Supporting Australia: We Are One

Like all Australians, our hearts are hurting for the people, communities, wildlife and bushlands affected by the devastating fires raging across our beautiful country. Our thoughts & deepest gratitude are with our amazing firefighters, volunteers and everyone contributing to the ongoing fight & the rebuild ahead.

The Scale of The Devastation

Here are just some of the devastating effects of the bushfires so far:

  • 24 lives lost
  • 12.35 million acres burned
  • 500 million native animals killed
  • 2,000 homes destroyed

Our Support

We would like to thank all our staff, customers, suppliers and the broader beauty community for your support. It’s amazing what we can do when we all come together.

Like the many others we have made a donation to The Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief & Recovery Fund for their support of evacuees, victims and communities affected by the fires and WIRES Wildlife Rescue to support their rescue and care of our native wildlife. We’ve also begun to build a long term, sustainable recovery support program for those affected which we will be sharing in the coming weeks.

We would also like to take this opportunity to raise awareness & encourage our customers all over the world to contribute in any way you can. Here are just some of the ways you can help support, get involved and donate.

The Australian Red Cross

The Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund is helping the bushfire devastation through coordinating and supporting people at evacuation centres and recovery hubs; psychological first aid to reduce trauma; emergency assistance and cash grants to those that have lost homes; longer-term recovery programs in disaster-affected communities and in many more ways.
