Lately, I’ve gotten into a bit of an obsessive habit. First it started in my bathroom cabinet, then it spread its way into my kitchen pantry. Now, every time I go to my local shopping centre, I can’t stop…
It’s checking labels.
Scrawled in tiny little letters usually hidden right at the bottom, if I squint my eyes slightly enough I can usually make it out. No, I’m not talking about how many calories in ‘this’ or the amount of sugar in ‘that’. I’m talking about where the product I’m using, or about to purchase, came from.
With so many different items on the market, I want to make sure my hard earned cashola is being used to support Australian-made products. There’s something extra special about products that have been made on our own shores.
Aussies get Aussies and they take pride in their products. When you buy something that is Australian made you know the quality is going to be on point and supporting local producers gives you that extra feel-great tingle.
You’re doing something good when you buy Aussie products. At least that’s how I justify my
excessive and impulsive moderate and thoughtful purchases. Here are some of the Australian made products that the Mamamia team can’t get enough of:
1. Organic Care.
Organic Care are my latest obsession I came across in the aisle of my local Woolies. They do a range of shampoos, conditioners, body washes and hand washes that I’ve fallen head over heels for. Their products contain certified organic oils and plant extracts which not only leave your hair and skin feeling amazing, they smell delicious.
My go-to product in their range is their Heat Protect Shampoo and Conditioner, $3.55 each. This product has left my hair silky and soft even though I’m not too kind to it by blasting it with the hairdryer then straightening it with an iron… These products are well and truly your best friend and make you feel like you’ve got nature right there next to you.
