Who Are We
We’re a young couple from Dorrigo NSW. Our journey started when we began making our own skincare products to avoid purchasing lotions and balms wrapped in excessive plastic and to steer clear of the harmful chemicals they contain. Once we perfected our recipes with the help of an experienced aromatherapist, it was time to package them up. But, there was a problem. We already knew that plastic wasn’t an option, and we quickly found that glass and aluminium were not much better due to the large amounts of energy it takes to produce them. We found our solution in wood. A renewable resource that we could source sustainably and, above all, it is completely natural and compostable. A win for our products and for the earth. Avirida came to life through a Kickstarter campaign in 2018, which was when our factory in Dorrigo, NSW was born. Our skincare products and compostable wooden jars are made right here in rural NSW, and have made us Sustainable Innovators Award Winners at the Tamworth Sustainability Expo.
What to Expect
Uncomplicated skincare that’s kind to your skin and the earth. We harness only the best natural Australian ingredients for incredible results. Our innovative, one-of-a-kind timber jars are completely compostable and contain zero plastic.
Visit us Because
We’re hugely passionate about the environment and we believe it’s our job to protect it. We started Avirida to create non-toxic products that don’t contribute to the world’s plastic problem. Our all-natural skincare range packaged in our handmade & sustainable wooden jars do just that. We use only sustainably sourced timber from salvaged, storm damaged logs, recycled timber or sustainable local plantations. Plus, we plant a tree for every purchase!
