Boostball: Grab n’ Go Keto

As a leading expert in holistic health, Steve Bessant was concerned about the sheer number of ingredients used in the high protein snacks available on the market. In 2016, he drew on his 20 years of clinical experience to create a range of tasty, high protein alternatives made from all-natural, healthy ingredients.

So begins the Boostball journey.

Over the next three years, Boostball’s nutritious and delicious snacks reached consumers across 19 countries.

The move into keto

According to Bolst Global, the ketogenic diet market is predicted to reach a global value of 15.6 billion USD by 2027. They also report that keto had overtaken previously popular diets, such as the Atkins Diet and intermittent fasting. So much so that ‘keto’ had 25.4 million Google searches in 2020, making it the most Googled food-related topic in the world. 

Steve and the Boostball team could see the rise of the popular keto diet and lifestyle trend and set out to meet the demand.

The Boostball keto range was officially launched in 2020. The products were not only on trend but also packed with natural and nutritional ingredients. 100% keto friendly and vegan, the products come in eye-catching, recyclable packaging, appealing to consumers and retailers.

Alaffia is Leading the Purpose-Driven Brand Generation

Bold in their approach to making a difference in the community, natural hair, skin and body brand, Alaffia remains steadfastly committed to their values. 

A standout on shelves for their bright packaging, Alaffia continues to capture consumer attention for what the brand stands for and what they’ve been able to achieve.

Purpose drives sales

The consumer trend towards valuing social purpose isn’t a new one. But it’s most certainly a growing one.

As many as 66% of consumers are willing to replace products they currently purchase with an alternative from a company with purpose-driven values. What’s even more interesting, is that 70% of purpose-driven purchasers are willing to pay a premium of as much as 35% for sustainable products.

Alaffia is a clear choice for those consumers that care about the products they buy… and the values of the brands that make them.

From the very beginning, Alaffia has been on a mission to empower sustainable development in African communities. Success isn’t measured in profit but rather the difference and contribution Alaffia makes to the community.

That difference has resulted in the:

  • funding of more than 5,500 maternal births
  • distribution of more than 30,800 eyeglasses and 10,800 bicycles for education
  • planting of more than 99,900 trees in areas impacted by deforestation
  • construction of 16 schools and distribution of school supplies to 37,500 students

The substance behind the story

With all that Alaffia has been able to achieve with their social impact, they also deliver on their fair-trade, cruelty-free and natural promises.

The heroes of the award-winning range are Shea, Coconut and African Black Soap. These are combined with essential oils such as peppermint and lavender as well as other biodegradable Indigenous ingredients to cater to a variety of skin and hair types and concerns.

Informed by ethnobotany and pharmacognosy, the products are safe and effective. Alaffia products contain no sulphates, no parabens, no phthalates, no artificial colour, no synthetic fragrance and no mineral oil. 

Alaffia is a brand that holds its products and the way they do business to the highest standards. 

New innovations

The latest additions to the Alaffia range appeal to parents who want natural and effective products for their children. The Kids Bubble Bath – available in ​​Coconut Chamomile and Lemon Lavender – is gentle and nourishing, made with fair-trade ingredients. 

Alaffia products are a celebration of sustainability, empowerment and creating brighter futures. This social-purpose brand is bringing consumers along for the journey to improve living conditions and end poverty in West Africa.

Ancient Wisdom Delivers Wellbeing and Hormonal Balance to Support Women Worldwide

Created in 1997, Anna’s Wild Yam Cream fills a significant gap in the market for a drug-free solution to manage women’s wellbeing and hormonal balance.

Australian owned and made, this trusted formulation is loved by consumers for its potential to relieve menstrual discomfort, cramps and spasms, as well as many common menopausal symptoms.

So, who is Anna? There actually is no Anna. Co-founders, Carol Hamilton and her husband, Max, chose the name ‘Anna’ for its lovely, old-fashioned, feminine charm. 


Anna’s Wild Yam Cream came into being from an experience that changed Carol’s life. Carol was introduced to an experimental wild yam cream when menopause arrived. And to her surprise, not only did the cream help with her menopausal symptoms, it appeared to resolve her adrenal fatigue, which, at the time, had decimated her health to the point where doctors had told her husband she had only months to live. 

This miracle was the catalyst for Carol and her husband Max to develop a quality wild yam cream that was easily available to all women. Wild Yam has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. The roots contain diosgenin, which Carol explains “triggers the body to produce all of our steroid hormones naturally, beginning with healthy levels of cholesterol, including progesterone – often referred to as the ‘balancing’ hormone.”


Anna’s Wild Yam Cream combines Mexican wild yam and Chastetree which work synergistically together to produce the wonderful results women have enjoyed all over the world for the last 24 years. It is the only wild yam cream produced in Australia using herbal liquid extracts which are more bio-available to the body than dried herbs.  

When the time came to retire in 2020, Carol and Max set out to find the perfect custodian for Anna’s “to ensure that the brand continued to be supported with the same level of integrity and honesty Anna’s customers relied upon.” 


As an avid Anna’s user and a passionate advocate for the brand, Harmony Rutledge was delighted to accept this responsibility and become the new owner and operator of Anna’s Wild Yam Cream. Harmony says;

“I have been using Anna’s for many years and am so inspired by the results women are achieving with their hormonal health. From the discomforts of prepubescent girls to women’s fertility and menopause, and all the other unpleasant feminine issues in between, this product is helping females of all ages.”

So, where to from here? Harmony is committed to educating even more women about the many benefits of Anna’s Wild Yam Cream. Shipping worldwide, Harmony has established an online ‘Anna’s Community’, where women can share their experiences, symptoms and successes. “I believe it is so important for women to feel connected. When feminine functions are causing considerable discomfort, they can wreak havoc with our wellbeing and leave us feeling isolated,” describes Harmony. “I hope it can be a source of support and hope for many women.”

Anna’s Wild Yam Cream offers women around the world an exclusive, natural health alternative.

You can find Anna’s Wild Yam Cream in our online store. You can shop online 24/7, or call our friendly sales team on 1800 787 904. If you don’t yet have an account with us, you can register for one here.

Macro Mike: From Personal Food Intolerance to Protein-powered Domination

Macro Mike is a 100% Australian owned company that’s turning plant-based healthy treats and protein on its head. But it all started with one man’s struggle with food intolerances…

Owner and Founder, Mike Kellett, had battled both gluten and dairy intolerances for many years before he decided to start baking gluten-free, macro and vegan-friendly treats. Frustrated with the lack of options available, Mike took the best quality wholefoods from every corner of the world and relentlessly experimented to create healthy treats.

Mike began sharing his recipes with his online community and the response was incredibly positive. It was then that he realised there was a major gap in the market. Fuelled by an enormous passion for all things natural and tasty, Mike launched Macro Mike in 2016 with one mission in mind:

“…to give back to anyone who feels they have ever had to restrict themselves from food; the most glorious natural resource we have on this planet.”

Macro Mike

At the time, the market was saturated with brands replicating each other, selling almost identical products and fighting for shelf space. It was considered crazy to even attempt something in the health and fitness industry, but Mike trusted his vision, found his tribe and had faith that the product would speak for itself.

Feedback from consumers of existing plant-based/vegan proteins was less than positive with many commenting that they were chalky, sandy and bland. So, Mike took it upon himself to create the smoothest, great-tasting, plant-based protein available.

And if his raving fans are anything to go by, we’d say he did it! The peanut-powered protein powders come in wickedly tempting flavours and have a cult following from people across all walks of life.

But that wasn’t enough for Mike. In staying true to his mission, Mike also produces high-protein, plant-based baking mixes, powdered peanut butters, protein bars, and health and wellness supplements.

And it doesn’t stop there! Never willing to be outdone, the Macro Mike team are continuously innovating and released Australia’s only premium almond protein powder range, almond protein-based baking mixes, and flavoured, powdered almond butters.

Made from Californian almonds, it is the ultimate in smooth, creamy protein with no nutty aftertaste. It’s so neutral in taste that they’ve even created a high protein ‘Nice Cream’, a healthy ice cream alternative that simply requires frozen banana and milk of your choice!

In the first three years of business, Mike transformed his small brownie business that existed in the spare room of his tiny apartment into a fully-fledged food company with a state-of-the-art production facility, onsite storage and shipping warehouse in the heart of the Gold Coast.

His products are now in over 1,000 stores across Australia and the company has an incredibly loyal online following of more than 96K Instagram fans with whom they share endless recipe inspiration and free inspiring content.

We never quite know what will come next from Mike, but one thing is for sure… Mike’s a man on a mission and he’s only just getting started!

CLIF BAR: The #1 energy bar fuelling sales, one bite at a time

The CLIF Bar story started with a bike ride. The epiphany that founder, Gary Erickson, had on that one cycling adventure set the wheels in motion for a product that has since become the leading energy bar across America, Canada and more recently Australia. 

It was 1990. Gary lived in a garage with his dog and pursued his passion for skiing, climbing and cycling. But with minimal options for energy bars on the market at the time, fueling his body for his active lifestyle was unappetizing to say the least.

Gary spent two years, with the help of the best baker he knew, his mum, perfecting the recipe that would become the original CLIF Bar. It ticked all the boxes – taste, sustained energy and wholesome ingredients.

CLIF Bar was an instant hit and soon became the energy bar of choice for cyclists and climbers before quickly hitting mainstream distribution channels.

The high-energy, natural and organic CLIF range now includes Energy Bars, Nut Butter Bars, Bloks Energy Chews, Energy Gel Shots, and the latest addition, Builders Bars. The brand has a loyal following, recognised for providing plant-based, wholesome grab n’ go bars and quick-release energy sources. 

CLIF Bar products

Powering top athletes around the world, including Venus Williams and John John Florence, the brand currently powers more than 11 Australian TEAM CLIF BAR athletes and tens of thousands of event competitors across the nation.

Never veering from its original vision to make a better tasting product, each item is crafted by athletes for athletes and made with real ingredients to energise and nourish. 

Going well beyond fuelling energy for any moment, CLIF is a company with a global purpose. When other energy bar brands were being acquired by multinational food companies, Gary and his wife, Kit Crawford, made the decision to stay private and developed an innovative, values-based business model. And it has paid off. The brand has seen double-digit, compounded annual growth for the past 10 years. 

In the same way Gary started CLIF with a vision to create a better energy bar option, the company vision has always been to do business in a better way. Food is at the centre of everything CLIF does, so organic ingredients and organic farming lead the sustainability efforts of the business. 

They are committed to reaching a goal of 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025. Their business operations are climate neutral and they have wide reaching programs in place to support the people, places and communities they touch including becoming an employee-owned business, paid community volunteer days for staff and operating on 100% green power for electricity at CLIF facilities. 

Over 30 years CLIF has played a leading role in shaping the energy bar industry while remaining true to their sustainability values. It’s no wonder they’re the number one choice to provide energy for any moment.  

Unique Health Products is proud to be part of the CLIF Bar story as the exclusive distributor of CLIF Bar products in Australia. You can shop the CLIF Bar range online with us 24/7, or call our friendly sales team on 1800 787 904. If you don’t have a wholesale account with us yet, you can register for one here.


Four in ten Australians aren’t getting enough sleep. That is 7.4 million people regularly sleeping less than the recommended 7-9 hours a night. Whether it’s caused by stress, kids or a poor sleep environment, the impact lack of sleep has on individuals is staggering.

In an effort to seek answers on how to balance work and family life while nurturing themselves, Shea Morrison and Danielle Knight founded The Goodnight Co. in 2015. They now have a range of products and programs to support holistic sleep wellness for mind, body, heart and spirit.

Celebrity endorsement

So popular is The Goodnight Co. brand that it has captured the attention of model and passionate wellness advocate, Miranda Kerr, who listed the Ceramic Diffuser in her Miranda Loves Collection. 

Miranda is an aromatherapy devotee who has a diffuser in most rooms in her home and loves the calming and relaxation of lavender essential oils, among others. 

In an interview on The Goodnight Co. blog, Miranda said, “My The Goodnight Co Ceramic Diffuser is such a great, chic accessory to any room. It blends in with the decor perfectly and not only scents my home but looks beautiful doing it.”

World Sleep Day

With World Sleep Day just around the corner on Friday 19 March, now is the time to shine a spotlight on sleep and how to get more of it.

World Sleep Day is an annual celebration of sleep and a call to action on important sleep issues. And sleep is a big issue for Australians. Further to the stats on the number of Australians not getting enough sleep, The Goodnight Co. also reported some of the findings from the Parliamentary Inquiry into Sleep Health Awareness in Australia. Some of these findings include:

  • 12% of Australians are getting less than 5.5 hours sleep each night.
  • Every cell in the body is impaired by poor quality sleep. The risk of chronic health conditions rises by 20 to 40 percent because of this. 
  • Sleep quality doesn’t just have an impact on individuals. In 2016-17, the economic and social cost of inadequate sleep had a $66.3 billion impact in Australia.

The Goodnight Co. is proud to be part of the solution, helping people to enhance their sleep environments so they can get more of the good stuff.

All products in The Goodnight Co. range are scientifically formulated in Australia, derived from natural ingredients and are vegan friendly. They focus on building healthy sleep routines that help you fall asleep, stay asleep and wake up feeling refreshed. The secret to better days is a good night’s sleep.

The world’s first organic, hypoallergenic and compostable wound care, PATCH, was born out of personal necessity. When James Dutton (the founder of Nutricare) noticed that common wound coverings would make his son’s skin react and the wound worse, he set on a mission to figure out why. 

Shockingly, James discovered an array of chemicals lurking in common plasters that affected not only his son, but people all over the world. He became incredibly motivated to create a better alternative for both his son and the rising number of people across the globe who can’t wear common wound care coverings. 

When it came to creating a better alternative, James also kept his other son, Xavier, in mind. Xavier hates putting creams on his skin and would throw tantrums no matter what creative ways were tried. And so PATCH was born! A wound care product that doesn’t cause nasty skin reactions and serves as a way to help heal wounds with the infusion of natural ingredients into the gauze. 

Since 2016, James has successfully taken PATCH from just an idea into an award-winning product range that is stocked in thousands of stores globally. Each adhesive strip is made with 100% certified organic bamboo fibre and comes in natural or with added extra goodness in the form of either coconut oil, aloe vera and activated charcoal for various purposes. PATCH adhesive bandages are natural, sustainable alternatives to regular wound care that are effective and durable but won’t ruin the earth.

If every household in Australia purchased one packet of regular plastic adhesive strips, the plastic waste would cover the equivalent of the MCG surface three and a half times over!

They have been engineered to be the most sensitive and natural wound care alternative on the market, appealing to all skin types both young and old. They’re free from latex, paraben, thimerosal, plastic and silicone. Utilising only eco-friendly, biodegradable materials in both the strips and the packaging.

Beyond their sustainable practices, the team behind PATCH are also passionate about giving back, supporting local communities with supplies in East Timor, partnering with Sea Shepherd, and collaborating with Phil Leahy from Retail Global to support children across Haiti with sterile medical resources. 

It’s one thing to create a strong brand that sells well, but it’s a whole other thing to create a company that also changes lives. PATCH is changing the wound care game one natural adhesive strip at a time, and this innovative brand is only just getting started. Watch this space!

Over the years, there have been significant moments that have redirected the natural products industry. One such moment occurred when Olowo-n’djo Tchala and Prairie Rose Hyde met in 1996.


Founder Olowo-n’djo Tchala

No one could have imagined a young man born and raised in Togo, West Africa and a young woman from rural Washington would go on to build one of the most successful fair trade body care organizations in the natural products industry – no one except them, that is.

Today, Alaffia is now operating in a 102,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Olympia, Washington creating intentional formulas with safe ingredients.

The women’s cooperatives in West Africa handcraft indigenous raw ingredients; the Alaffia team in Olympia create the finished products, and then the proceeds are returned to the communities to fund empowerment and gender equality projects.


Alongside the body care business is The Alaffia Foundation. The foundation’s mission is aligned with Alaffia’s core values and facilitates Alaffia’s Empowerment Projects through the advancement of fair trade, education, sustainable living and gender equality.

The Alaffia Foundation is set up as a 501 non-profit that provides a platform for individuals and organizations to donate eyeglasses, bicycles and school supplies; volunteer one’s time at the Olympia facility to break down bicycles and load supplies to be sent to Togo; and make direct monetary contributions to any of their Empowerment Projects: Maternal Care, Education, Vision Correction and Reforestation.


Currently, Alaffia directly impacts over 14,000 lives in West Africa through its women’s cooperatives and Empowerment Projects for sustainable development.


When consumers are searching for products that make them feel good, they’re looking for great value, high quality products that are free from harmful ingredients that don’t ruin the earth.

In fact, according to Nielson consumer research, 66% of shoppers would be willing to pay more for this type of sustainable product. Plus, 87% of consumers said they would be willing to buy a product or service based on a company’s advocacy concerning a social matter because 78% of the research participants wanted companies to address social justice issues.
