At Self Bloom Co we only stock brands and products that align with our carefully considered benchmarks and priorities. We are committed to taking responsibility and being transparent as we meet and step up to the standards we have set. Allowing you peace of mind as you go on your self-care journey.
You will find details on where each product is made on the individual product pages in the shop along with details of the ingredients and materials used to create each product.
Australian Owned & Made
All of our brands and products are 100% Australian owned. As a starting point, this means reduced freight emissions and carbon footprint, and increased visibility in our vetting process. It also opens the door for closer relationships with our brands. While the majority of our stocked products are Australian made, increasing this number is a strong priority.
Natural, Ethical & Cruelty-Free
We are comprehensive in our sourcing and vetting of natural, non-toxic and conscious products that are cruelty-free and meet our ethical standards.
The products we stock are:
- 100% Natural

Sustainable & Environmentally Conscious
The brands we stock are focused on and committed to neutralising or creating a positive impact on the climate and our environment. By reducing their emissions and constantly evolving their supply chain practices.
Once the products we have sourced are in our care, we use sustainable packaging made from recyclable materials that on delivery can be mindfully recycled or composted in your home. We strive towards 100% carbon neutral shipping and seek to find ways to work with brands, so that we can reduce the number of products that end up in landfill.
As an online brand, packaging and shipping our products is our way of getting them to you. And because you deserve to be treated, we want the unboxing experience to be a real moment. But in line with our values, it is important that we deliver your moment with care. With the greatest consideration for the lowest impact on the environment and our planet as possible.
We suspect that as a Self Bloom Co customer, you feel the same way. So we are delighted to share with you, how we have invested in sustainability and taking care of the planet.
It all starts with the incredible local Australian businesses that we work with. Each of these conscious businesses are ethical and operate in an environmentally friendly manner.
And before we offer you a breakdown of how each element of our sustainable packaging is made, know this. All our packaging is 100% recyclable and compostable. Self-care for you can still mean care for the planet.

Debunking the terminology
Compostable and recyclable packaging
Compostable packaging is typically made from renewable plant-based materials and/or bio-polymers. To be certified home compostable, a product must break down in a home compost within 180 days. In commercial composting conditions, 90 days.
NoIssue’s Recycle framework includes packaging made from recycled materials. Or materials that can be recycled at the end of their use. This gives materials already in circulation, a second life! The materials are usually processed at a recycling facility. And put back into circulation for use in other products.
The paper is made from cellulose fibre, meaning the active acid pulp is eliminated during processing.
Lignin and sulphur free
Meaning the ink won't transfer from stickers and the paper won't leave chemicals when decomposing.
Self Bloom Co is part of the noissue Eco-Alliance. A growing community of businesses, makers, and brands who choose to utilise sustainable packaging. And who are committed to being better together.
For every order placed, noissue plants trees in areas in need of reforestation.
