Kadee Botanicals was founded by Nicholas and Irene to provide luxury Australian natural plant based skincare that does no harm.
With a science background, Nicholas had a deep understanding of the benefits and risks of each ingredient. As a user of natural skincare, Irene brought the customer lens to what was needed to remedy her skin complaints.
They focussed on celebrating the benefits of Australian plants like Kakadu Plum, Lilly Pilly and Jojoba Oil. All three ingredients can be found in the Kadee Botanicals range because of their high vitamin and nutrient content, antioxidants and natural anti-aging properties.
Kakadu Plum is only found in northern Australia and sustainably farmed by remote communities. With the highest vitamin C of any natural ingredient, Kakadu Plum aids in the stimulation of collagen, helps fade dark spots, age spot and revitalises dull skin. Best of all, the nourishing plant based formulations smelt relaxing and beautiful. Like a visit to the day spa.
Free of harm
Reading studies and reports about the potential safety risks of some ingredients traditionally found in skincare, and having had family members affected by cancer, they decided early on not to risk it. Where there was doubt about the safety of an ingredient and there were safer natural alternatives, Nicholas and Irene chose the safer natural alternative. As a result, no Kadee Botanical skincare product contains parabens, sulphates, mineral oils (petroleum based), artificial colours or fragrances. They use amber glass jars on their eye cream, hydrating day and night cream and lemon myrtle hand cream to safely lengthen the life of the product.
Having grown up with a love of animals and pets, Nicholas and Irene could not bare to develop products that created animal misery. Especially as there were plant based products that had the same benefit without the cruelty.
Their vision was to create Australian skincare using plants (vegan), that do no harm now (cruelty free) or in the future (toxin free), that work naturally and feel and smell as relaxing as if you’d just left the day spa (luxury).
A luxurious beauty routine that takes care of your skin, without the risk of future harm.
It took some time to find a name that would encapsulate this vision. After going through some potential names, the name became clear one Spring morning. It had to be an Indigenous Australian name.
After all, the Indigenous Australian people knew about the benefits of Australian plant based ingredients for centuries. In their wisdom, they were the first to use the Kakadu Plum for its medicinal and antiseptic benefits.
We chose the name “Kadee” because it was an Indigenous Australian Girl’s name that meant “Mother”.
Like all good mothers, our skincare products instinctively do no harm.
Nicholas worked in FMCG for over 20 years and spent over a decade within the Quality department at Unilever, working on brands such as Dove, Lux, Omo, Lynx, Sunsilk and more. Having spent a childhood with eczema, he is very careful about what products and ingredients he exposes his skin and his family to.
Irene comes from a product and marketing background and has been an avid user of natural skincare for over 20 years. She is passionate about natural beauty without harm.
