SUSTAINABLE BRANDS ANSWER THE CONSUMER CALL

Regardless of generation or gender, the environment matters to consumers. 

In one study of 2000 Australians, the researchers found that the top three overall social and economic concerns for the respondents were plastic waste, toxic chemicals and our oceans. The same study also found that 56% of people are actively searching for sustainable brands and products that support causes or have environmentally friendly attributes. As many as 6 in 10 will pay more for said products. 

56% of people are actively searching for sustainable brands and products that support causes or have environmentally friendly attributes.

Equally, in another recent study on sustainability in Australia, 46% of people reported that they had stopped buying particular products due to their environmental and societal impact. 48% of people wear their choices with pride, believing that sustainable purchases are a statement of who they are and what they believe in. 

At Unique Health Products, we are proud to distribute products from a large range of sustainable brands that are leaders in providing choices to address the environmental concerns of consumers.

Sustainable brands using recycled packaging

RECYCLED PACKAGING

The statistics on plastic packaging are frightening. In Australia, one million tonnes of our annual plastic consumption is single-use plastic. And it’s not going unnoticed. 83% of people are concerned by plastic waste. 

Ethique is on a mission to #giveupthebottle and revolutionise the beauty industry. To date, Ethique’s solid bars have saved more than 10 million bottles from entering landfill. The commitment from this brand to being plastic free extends right across the business. Not only are the bars plastic free, but they also use compostable packaging.

Acure is another sustainable brand, already firmly committed to sustainable and natural products, now taking further steps by removing unnecessary outer box packaging. 

Similarly, household cleaning brand, Earthwise, has pledged that by 2025, 100% of their packaging will be recyclable, reusable or compostable. They are transparent on their progress and dedicated to making positive environmental change.

Sustainable brands that consider the full product life cycle

THE FULL PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE

The Australian Packaging Covenant has set a target for 100% of product packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025. There are many brands that are going further than that to create products that not only use sustainable packaging, but the product itself is compostable. 

This approach of considering the full product life cycle caters to the growing consumer market that is concerned with their waste footprint.

PATCH is one such sustainable brand with their innovative, compostable Bandages. Not only are the PATCH Bandages made from 100% natural bamboo fibre with the added goodness of activated charcoal, aloe vera and coconut oil, but the Bandages, and their packaging, are also 100% compostable. The result is a product that is good for people and the planet. 

Using bio-plastics, the Biotuff range of Bin Liners, Kitchen Tidy Bags, Nappy Waste Bags, Disposable Gloves, Cling Wrap, Sandwich Bags and Dog Waste Bags are biodegradable and compostable. Plastic bags can take between 20 and 1000 years to decompose, not to mention the other environmental impacts they can have for our oceans and animals. 

Sustainable brands that make reusables

REUSABLES

According to Euromonitor, the Australian ‘throw-away’ culture is being replaced with an increased movement towards reusable and refillable containers and products. 

Ever Eco was an Australian pioneer as the first brand in the country to introduce Stainless Steel Drinking Straws. They have continued to lead the reusables industry and have since expanded their range to include a large number of reusables including Water Bottles, Clothes Pegs, Produce Bags, Kitchen Storage and more.

Also in the reusables market, Honeybee Wrap creates 100% organic cotton, eco alternatives to plastic wrap that can be reused time and time again. 

But it’s not just food and drink related products that are driving the reusables boom. The Hello Cup replaces pads and tampons as a reusable period product alternative. Made from medical grade thermoplastic elastomer, it can be used for years, helping to reduce the 45 billion single-use period products that end up in landfill each year. 

Sustainable brands that use sustainably sourced ingredients

SUSTAINABLY SOURCED INGREDIENTS

In one study conducted by IBM it was found that 73% of the research participants want more than simple sustainability claims from the brands they buy. They want details about sourcing and the traceability of products and ingredients. Of those people, 71% are willing to pay a premium for products that provide that information.

This is the kind of transparency that RXBAR was founded on. Not only does every RXBAR contain clean and responsibly-sourced ingredients, those ingredients are proudly visible, front and centre on the product packaging. 

The Ginger People are also steadfastly committed to sustainably sourced ingredients and have developed strong partnerships with their farmers to ensure this. By working with family farms around the world in locations such as Peru, China, Indonesia and Fiji, they create opportunities for the local people and follow bio-diverse farming practices. 

Ethical sourcing is also a principle that guides the production of Dr Organic Skincare and Hair Care. The natural and plant extracts are sourced from around the world to produce luxury products that don’t cost the earth.  

Sustainable brands with carbon neutral operations

CARBON NEUTRAL OPERATIONS

77% of consumers are concerned about climate change. They are looking for the brands they purchase to take positive action towards reducing their carbon footprint. 

CLIF is a leader in this space, having achieved their goal of carbon neutral business operations, operating on 100% green power for electricity at all CLIF facilities. Not only this, they also sustainably source their ingredients and they are committed to reaching a goal of 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025.

Sustainable brands showing environmental innovation

ENVIRONMENTAL INNOVATION

There are also many sustainable brands that are identifying innovative ways to target environmental issues.

Take People4Ocean as an example. Their range of suncare products were designed by marine biologists to be not only reef safe but also target common skin concerns related to sun exposure. 

Another brand innovating for good is Natural Evolution. What started as an accidental discovery when Natural Evolution founder and second-generation banana farmer, Robert Watkins, drove over a hand of lady finger bananas has turned into a booming brand. Not only do Natural Evolution Banana Flour products have an array of health benefits, using the bananas to produce flour also helps with the issue of farmers discarding excess bananas that were unwanted by the supermarkets. 

CATER TO YOUR ECO CUSTOMERS WITH OUR SUSTAINABLE BRANDS

Whatever the environmental concerns of your customers, at Unique Health Products we have brands to cater to their needs. As a retailer you can make a statement about your sustainability goals and commitments by stocking your shelves with these innovative, eco-friendly brands.

5 NATURAL BEAUTY TRENDS FOR 2021

In their Future of Beauty Report, Nielsen identified natural beauty and skincare as key drivers for the future of the industry. Mintel called it a “Beauty Eco-lution” that is driven by eco-ethical and conscious purchasing decisions.

But the natural beauty market is as diverse as it is fast-growing. It has almost twice the predicted CAGR of the beauty market as a whole! In the plethora of products available, there are key natural beauty trends that are driving the growth.

Here are the five key natural beauty trends you should know to have your finger on the pulse for your eco-conscious customers.

Cruelty-free beauty

1) CRUELTY FREE

According to What’s New in Healthy Products, consumers are starting to consider vegan and cruelty-free credentials as a baseline requirement for skincare brands. 

ACURE is a brand that is leading the market in highly innovative and effective skincare that also adheres to its vegan and cruelty-free values. For ACURE this means no animal-testing, ever, and drawing on powerful super nutrients for skin wellness. 

From Facial Scrubs to Cleansing Gels, Face Masks, Serums, Moisturisers, Treatments, Oils and more, every product in the ACURE range is 100% vegan. 

Zero-waste beauty

2) ZERO WASTE

Plastic packaging – and more specifically plastic packaging winding up in landfill – is an undeniable issue facing our planet. Since 1960, the amount of plastic packaging used in the USA has increased over 120 times. While this figure isn’t limited to the beauty industry, globally, the beauty and personal care industry accounts for more than AUD $30 billion in plastic packaging sales.

Ethique is an impressively-sustainable brand playing an active role in reducing plastic packaging. The brand and products are 100% plastic free. In fact, Ethique has saved more than 6.5 million plastic bottles from entering landfill with their sustainable paper packaging, compostable Storage Containers, Concentrates and Solid Beauty Bars.

While Ethique started with Shampoo Bars, there are now Solid Face Cleansers, Solid Face Scrubs, Solid Face Serums as well as a range of home, pet, hair and body care bars.

Another brand providing zero-waste solutions is Ever Eco. Their passion for eradicating single-use plastics started with the humble drinking straw and has now extended to include a beauty range. Beauty products include Reusable Bamboo Facial Pads to replace single-use cotton pads as well as Muslin Facial Cloths and Konjac Facial Sponges.

Functional and bioactive ingredients - natural beauty trends

3) FUNCTIONAL AND BIOACTIVE INGREDIENTS

As much as functional ingredients are driving food trends, they are also a force in natural beauty trends.

Functional and bioactive ingredients have been used for centuries in traditional medicine, and now the natural beauty industry is embracing the transformational power of nature.

Dr Organic doesn’t just use bioactive ingredients. Their ranges are each built around a powerful bioactive to ensure each product is truly functional. Whether it is Organic Aloe Vera, Activated Charcoal, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Manuka Honey, Organic Reishi or one of the other many bioactives in the range, every product is designed to draw on the power of nature to get serious skin results.

ACURE is another brand that uses functional ingredients such as ashwagandha, reishi, holy basil, cordyceps and melatonin. Despite their use of quality, effective plant-based bioactives and functional ingredients, they are incredibly accessible and affordable for the everyday consumer looking to ‘clean up’ their beauty routine. 

Beauty supplements

4) BEAUTY FROM WITHIN

In line with the food as medicine trend, there are an increasing number of beauty supplements focusing on nourishing skin from within with the idea that beauty starts on the inside.

Supercharged Food, known for their Love Your Gut Powders and Capsules, has recently launched the Earth and Sea Beauty Capsules. The capsules contain a blend of silica, iodine and iron. The 100% Australian-sourced silica may aid in collagen production for healthy hair, skin and nails. The iodine in the blend is sourced from Tasmanian kelp and may help to repair damaged skin cells. 

Natural sheet masks

5) SHEET MASKS

Sheet masks are certainly a trend that is here to stay! The natural beauty trend for sheet masks is in natural and organic ingredients and eco-friendly materials.

Orgaid produced the world’s first organic sheet mask. They use the patented Ecoderma sheet mask fabric along with organic ingredients and scientifically-backed formulations to create highly-effective sheet masks.

The Orgaid sheet mask range includes three varieties – Anti-aging & Moisturizing, Vitamin C & Revitalizing and Greek Yogurt & Nourishing.

5 EMERGING TRENDS IN NATURAL HEALTH!

There’s an overarching theme emerging from this year’s events and it comes as no surprise — it revolves around preventative health, in particular, supporting the immune system. Aside from this, consumers are demanding even more from natural health brands and continue to seek out products developed with both a conscious and a specific purpose. Here are the top 5 emerging trends in natural health today:

SUPPLEMENTS-TREND

1. SUPPLEMENTS

Nutrition Business Journal estimates that sales of cold, flu and immunity supplements alone will reach $5.2 billion this year, with growth of 51.2% over 2019. The new awareness of immunity offers supplements an opportunity to be seen as more of a year-round
regimen than a seasonal response. Star ingredients in hot demand include pre and probiotics thanks to the increasing awareness around gut health and immunity. According to Mintel, the number of internet searches for gut health grew 669% last year!

Emerging-trends-beauty

2. HIGH-PERFORMANCE BEAUTY

The global natural and organic personal care market is expected to grow even faster than food – at a compound annual growth rate of 11.1% by 2026. But consumers are now looking for natural beauty products that go one step further than just “simple” and
“clean”. Technologically advanced, high-performing functional products are becoming more popular. The key to success is stocking a range of brands that are natural, trustworthy, transparent, and offer a point of difference with their chosen functional ingredients ie. vitamin C for anti-ageing and calendula to calm and soothe.

5-Emerging-Trends_Trending

3. PLANET OVER PERSONAL GAIN

More and more consumers are moving from individual-centric to planet-centric decision making. They are increasingly aware of and
concerned about sustainability issues and want the brands they trust to take appropriate actions to help reduce their impact. This spans across ingredient sourcing, packaging materials and actively giving back to charities and organisations making a difference.
The rising demand for locally sourced and Australian made products has also come to the forefront of late as consumers look
to support businesses closer to home. 90% of Australians aged 14+ say they are more likely to buy products made in Australia!

5 Emerging Trends_Trending5

4. FUNCTIONAL BEVERAGES

A growing number of consumers are looking to adjust their drinking habits by seeking out better-for-you options. Conscious
of excessive sugar intake and searching for products that do more than just hydrate, the functional beverage trend is gaining rapid
momentum. 80% of consumers in a recent FMCG survey said they were planning to eat and drink more healthily because of the recent pandemic. In particular, consumers are looking for drinks that will help support their immune system with drinks high in vitamin C, omega 3s and other ingredients for immune health.

5 Emerging Trends_Trending6

5. INGREDIENTS FOR DIY CREATIONS

Stress, anxiety and a strong desire to boost wellbeing and get a ‘feel good’ hit at home, has consumers increasingly eager to create their own home and personal care products such as face masks and cleaning products. Combined with a 44% increase in screen time and the popularity of DIY on social media, this trend offers consumers a triple-whammy ‘feel good’ effect thanks to a feeling of belonging, enjoying a personalised experience, and active participation in more sustainable consumerism.

Unique Health Products is home to many of the world’s biggest health and wellness brands. With more than 3,800 products in our warehouse, you can rest assured, if it’s trending, a top seller, or a product simply worth stocking on your shelves – we’ll have it! Ready to place an order?

SELF-CARE: THE $450 BILLION OPPORTUNITY

The art of self-care has been around for centuries. While the methods may have changed and broadened over the years, the goal of each practice has remained the same – calm the nervous system, feel good and nurture health and wellbeing.  

So many self-care practices that were once considered ‘alternative’ have now infiltrated our daily lives and are widely accepted i.e. yoga and meditation. 

88% of consumers actively practice some form of self-care. 

But thanks to social media and the internet, the self-care industry is a vast space, wide open for individual interpretation and implementation. Even a person’s morning coffee ritual can be considered a form of self-care.

There are more than 25 million posts on Instagram tagged with #selfcare!

Whether it’s a face mask, meditation, breathing technique, home fragrance, diet plan, tea break, bedtime routine or skincare ritual. There’s an option to suit everybody and it’s a retail opportunity, which according to IRi reports, that’s worth a whopping $450 billion! 

MEN’S SELF CARE: Self-care is not only for women either! Allied Market Research projects that the global market for men’s personal care will reach $166 billion by 2022. Skin and body care, in particular, are becoming more socially acceptable thanks to admired celebrities sharing their own routines and innovative marketing campaigns creating discussion.

In order to harness maximum sales growth, brands and retailers must think outside of the traditional, narrowly defined category and take a far broader approach. Taking the time to understand how each retail category can fit within this benefit-based, solution-oriented space is a strategic move that has the potential to totally transform your sales performance.  

Showcase a diverse range of self-care related items instore with some of the Unique team’s top picks: 

Left to right: Wheatbags Love, Amazing Oils, Bach Remedies, Evodia, Lemon Myrtle Fragrances, Harmony’s Ear Candles, Dr Organic Ginseng Men’s range.

NATURALLY GOOD EXPO 2018 – BY THE NUMBERS

Held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Darling Harbour, the Naturally Good Expo is Australia’s largest trade show for all natural, organic and healthy products and services.

Each year we attend as a platinum partner to showcase our top sellers to the most influential people in the industry and work to build mutually beneficial connections with retailers and our suppliers. This year we unveiled our biggest stand yet – the largest at the show!

In case you missed it, here’s how our Naturally Good Expo 2018 experience happened – by the numbers!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-clif-bar1

1. ONE CRITICAL PERSON

It takes a whole lot of planning, coordination and project management to transform our original ideas into a real-life masterpiece at the Naturally Good Expo. Thankfully, we have one incredible team that makes all the late nights, early mornings, last minute hiccups and hours spent on emails and phone calls integrate into a seamless, successful event!

While we couldn’t do it without many hands on deck, there is always one person in particular that plays a pivotal role in our Naturally Good experience – our Marketing Executive extraordinaire, Carol. Thank you for all that you do!

2. TWO MAJOR STALL SPACES

This year the Unique stand took up two of the largest sites at the expo. The updated stand was dotted with sampling booths, decorated with hot new products and buzzing with staff, suppliers and retailers – it was a sight to see and the energy was incredible!

3. THREE HOUR PACK DOWN

With the Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference & Trade Exhibition looming the following weekend, most of the team had already returned to the Sunshine Coast by the time the event ended. The staff and suppliers that remained (thank you, East Bali Cashews and Natural Evolution!) packed down the stall in a record time of 3 hours!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-hot-new-products

4. MY MAGIC MUD, UPTON’S NATURALS & MORE!

This year, when it came to sampling and showcasing our amazing product range, the team had a little extra help…

Award-winning international and local creators, innovators and makers of the hottest, must-have health products joined us as part of our ‘Meet the Makers’ event – including  My Magic Mud, Manitoba Harvest and Upton’s Naturals!

Each supplier that joined our stand had the opportunity to promote and sample their products at their very own sampling booth. This allowed the suppliers to strengthen their retailer relationships and cement their place as a leading brand in the health and wellness space. Something we’re beyond proud to help facilitate!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-clif-bar

5. FIVE HUNDRED HEALTH PRODUCTS AND GOODIE BAGS

The stand was full to the brim with more than 500 natural health and wellness products on display! Plus, we handed out 500+ goodie bags to industry influencers, retail leaders, and key stakeholders filled with:

6. SIX MONTHS PREP TIME

The entire event took our team, Carol in particular, a grand total of six months to prepare for. From supporting the Naturally Good Expo team with our Platinum Partner duties, to coordinating stock, and logistics of the stand set up and staff involved, there was so much to be done and we couldn’t be prouder of our team and what they’ve achieved!

7. SEVEN THOUSAND ATTENDEES

Across two huge days, we served up thousands of product samples to 7000+ health-focused expo attendees – also known as a lot of chopping!

Sampling allowed retailers and industry leaders to gain better insights into the suppliers products, build stronger connections, learn the backstory, and discover what niche the product can fill in their stores. It’s a super important step towards long-term success in stores!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-manitoba-harvest

8. MORE THAN EIGHTY HOT NEW PRODUCTS LAUNCHED

An entire section of our stand was dedicated to over 80 hot new products launched at the expo! Brands included:

9. NINE HOUR SET UP

While the pack down was somewhat of a breeze, Rome wasn’t certainly not built overnight. Our largest stand ever took a whole lot of teamwork and around nine hours to set it all up!

10. TEN HUGE PALLETS DELIVERED

That nine hours of set up involved the unpacking and merchandising of 10 full pallets of product, equipment and stall materials!

Despite the whirlwind nature of the actual event, we put our time and effort into these events to support our suppliers, build and strengthen our retailer relationships and meet new faces along the way. We couldn’t do what we do without their support and for that, we’re always grateful!

If you missed out this time, don’t worry, we can’t wait to do it all again, so we’ll see you next year!

THE NEW SKINCARE RANGE THAT FIGHTS SIDE-EFFECTS OF URBAN POLLUTION

TOP-SELLING UK BRAND, DR ORGANIC, NOW HAS AN ACTIVATED CHARCOAL RANGE THAT HELPS TO FIGHT SKIN DAMAGE FROM URBAN POLLUTION.

The skin is regularly exposed to a range of air pollutants and environmental elements. Although human skin acts as a biological shield against these harmful compounds, a prolonged or repetitive exposure to high levels of these pollutants may contribute to negative effects on the skin.

Skin exposure to air pollutants has been associated with skin aging and inflammatory or allergic skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis or acne, while skin cancer is among the most serious effects.

Dr Organic’s Activated Charcoal range helps to eliminate dirt, oil, and impurities from the body while combating the side-effects of urban stress and pollution.

Using activated charcoal produced from Oak Trees grown in sustainable and regulated forests, and a proprietary blend of organic and bioactive extracts including aloe vera juice, cucumber, and cinnamon, the range is ideal for those with oily and blemish-prone skin.

The most common forms of air pollutants in urban society today include:

1.Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs)

PAHs are among the most widespread organic pollutants. Long term-exposed skin to PAHs either through the hair or skin may lead to oxidative stress, pigmentation and skin ageing. PAHs have also been implicated in the development of skin cancer.

Main sources: Residual wood burning, car exhaust fumes, and smoke.

2.Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

VOCs, with the presence of sunlight and nitrogen oxides, cause the formation of photochemical oxidant products -mainly ozone (O3) – at ground level, also called Summer photochemical smog.

Main sources: Organic solvents in paints, varnishes, vehicle refinishing products, tobacco smoke, stored fuels, car exhaust and emissions from industrial facilities.

3.Oxides

Oxides have been associated with increased prevalence of atopic dermatitis as well as exacerbations of the disease in children.

Main sources: Nitrogen oxides are emitted mainly from mobile and stationary combustion sources. Sulphur dioxide can be formed from both industrial processes and natural sources such as volcanic activity and forest fires.

4.Particulate Matter (PM)

Air pollutants, consisting of complex and varying mixtures of different size and composition particles suspended in the air are called PM. Exposure to PM contributes to external signs of skin aging (wrinkles, pigmented macules or spots).

Main sources: Factories, power plants, refuse incinerators, automobile, construction activities, fires and natural windblown dust are some of the main sources of PM.

5.Ozone

Exposure to O3 has been associated with urticaria, eczema, contact dermatitis, and other nonspecific eruptions.

Main sources: Ozone may be formed as a by-product of various everyday activities combined with the interaction of sunlight (UVR), hydrocarbons, VOCs and nitric oxides, representing a major active component of the pro-oxidant smog.

6.Cigarette Smoke

The combination of smoking and sun exposure may combine to negatively influence skin aging. Cigarette smoking has been associated with skin aging (wrinkles, skin dryness, skin dyschromia), skin cancer (SCC, BCC), psoriasis and acne vulgaris.

By world standards, Australia has very clean air. However, according to the Department of the Environment and Energy, levels of some pollutants, including ground-level ozone and particulate matter, can still exceed current air quality standards.
