While ingredients might be the same, the effectiveness of products can be dramatically different. At Avec, we've worked really hard to develop relationships and source directly with organic and sustainable Australian farms to source the best ingredients in Australia. This allows us to receive the freshest, most potent and high-quality ingredients on the market.
Why is freshness in skincare so important?
We really want to know the processes involved in the growing and producing of each of our ingredients. With most products sold online from bulk stores, these skincare brands don’t know when the plant it came from was harvested, who grew it and what the environment was like. Many of these natural ingredients are mass produced and stored in warm warehouses for what can be many years. This means the nutritional value of the natural product can deplete over time and by the time it gets to your skin, it's sometimes been lost altogether.
Other countries which claim to use certified organic can be unmonitored, or use unsustainable farming practices, and the workers on their farms are sometimes exploited. This is why we work directly with multiple small farmers for our Bioactive Nutrient Serum- most of them family owned - so every ingredient is potent and will bring nutritious benefits for your skin, and knowing they have sustainable practices. Our farmers offer superior quality ingredients that have been meticulously sourced with botanicals delivered at their peak freshness to preserve the integrity of each flower, leaf and stem.

In-house plant extracts
We prepare all of our herbal extracts in house for every batch. This is rare in the beauty industry. Most bulk suppliers and commercial plant extracts can have low nutrients and be heavily refined where it has little to no benefit from the original source.
