Sophic is inspired by Australia.
Our culture. Our environment. Our community.
Do these bottles look familiar? Perhaps like a popular beer?
Our Cleansers are packaged in recycled stubbies and made from at least 70% recycled Australian glass.
We source our recycled glass from Vissy.
Glass is one of the world’s most sustainable packaging options, made from natural ingredients and recyclable again and again.
In the 1960s, most Aussies drank wine solely on special occasions. But in April 1965, South Australian winemaker, Thomas Angove, patented the first ever bag-in-box, intending to create a modern-day half-gallon wine jug, or flagon (from which it has been suggested the term “goon” is derived).
Our salon's offer refills for our cleansers in this unique Aussie invention.
We source a number of Australian native botanical extracts from Native Extracts including; Quandong, Kakadu Plum, Kangaroo Apple, Lilly Pilly, Coffee Seed and Desert Lime.
We chose to work with Native Extracts because they strive for continual improvement and better solutions for people and planet - aiming for net positive impacts with regard to water, energy, waste and biomass. They support the growth of sustainable primary industries with greater inclusion and Indigenous engagement throughout the supply chain. Learn more about their impact here.
COLOUR DISC STAND
Our Colour Discs are presented on a timber stand that has been handmade near Byron Bay from Camphor Laurel wood.
Native to Taiwan, Japan and parts of China, camphor laurel was introduced to Australia in 1822 as a garden ornamental. Since then, feral populations have established from the Atherton Tableland in north Queensland to Victoria.
Camphor laurel is an attractive shade tree but can be very invasive, replacing pasture and native vegetation such as blue gums which are koalas' preferred food.
Our stands help to remove this weed from our environment, making room for natives to flourish.
