Creating Skincare With A Conscience
At Alpha-H, we are committed to reducing our environmental impact.
We know we can’t save the world overnight, but collectively we can strive to minimise our footprint and safeguard the environment for the sake of future generations.
Powered By The Sun
We’re making the most of the natural resources here on the sunny Gold Coast, powering our factory and head office with the help of 195 solar panels. Measuring some 325m2, this clean energy solution will reduce our CO2 emissions by almost 67,000 kg per year. Any excess power generated is returned to the grid.
We’re passionate about supporting local producers and suppliers. As such, we formulate our products with local ingredients wherever possible.
Alpha-H currently sources a number of ingredients from local Queensland growers and suppliers such as; Aloe Vera, Avocado Oil, Green Tea, Macadamia Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Olive Leaf.
Our Jojoba Oil, Thyme and Chamomile are sourced from Byron Bay. Our Coffee Extract comes from beans grown in the Byron Bay Hinterland and our Lime Pearl™’s is native to Queensland’s tropical East Coast rainforests but is harvested sustainably.

All of our products are cruelty-free
Our tubes and bottles all contain 30 – 35% Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) material. New technology means that over one third of post-consumer recycled resin (PCR resin) can be used in packaging without compromising the integrity of the product. Beyond this, Alpha-H’s tubes, bottles and cardboard packaging are all 100% recyclable.
We have recently introduced new shipping boxes for all online orders which are made from 70% Post Consumer-Recycled Material, are printed with vegetable dyes and are 100% recyclable.
We are committed to blending the best of science and nature, and so we do not formulate with any questionable ingredients that could cause harm to ourselves or our environment. See here for more information on our Clean Formula Commitment.
We discontinued the use of Polyethylene Beads in 2015, replacing them with environmentally friendly and biodegradable Bamboo Powder and Jojoba Beads.
While some of the raw materials we formulate with are derived from Palm Oil, we do not use Palm Oil itself as an ingredient.
Although many of Alpha-H’s ingredients are sourced from certified sustainable RSPO suppliers, we are working towards formulating exclusively with sustainable sources so that we can continue to minimize our impact on the environment, ecosystems and communities.
Partnering with NuGrow
Our transformative approach revitalises more than just skin. We partner with NuGrow to manage our liquid waste in the most sustainable and circular way we could find. Additionally, and this should go without saying, but non recyclable waste is going to landfill.
Partnering with NuGrow
NuGrow is Queensland’s leader in recycling and revegetation. They convert liquid, solid, food organics, garden organics and green waste into high-grade composts, premium soils and soil conditioners.
These are used for land rehabilitation projects as a growing medium or substitute for synthetic fertilisers. They rejuvenate degraded land by improving ecological and biological integrity through improved soil fertility and micro-life.
