Traceable, accountable, sustainable: Biologi serum from plant to bottle
When you purchase any skincare product, you put your trust in an often-lengthy supply chain.
As a consumer, you’d expect that what you receive in the bottle is ethically sourced and gentle on the skin.
But, do you know the name of the supplier of the active ingredients in your products?
To be honest, we’d expect not.
And, could you pick up the phone and ask the retailer where they came from?
Again, probably not.
For an average product formulated with 20- 30 ingredients, to understand what you’re really putting on your skin, you’d need to trace back the manufacturer and supplier of every single ingredient.
With product labelling often hazy at best, to find out where the ingredients originate from can be an impossible task for consumers.
And this is just one of the many ways Biologi is different.
For every product in our revolutionary range of clean cosmeceuticals, we’re committed to sustainable practices every step of the way.
From sourcing ingredients to recycling used bottles through our TerraCycle program, we are in control allowing us to make the best choices for both the planet and the consumer.
Taking an extra step towards consumer responsibility, we also bridge the gap between our suppliers and our customers. We guarantee direct contact with all our customers through email, social media @Biologiserum, website chat and phone…for anything you need!
Whether it’s for personalised skincare advice, questions about our products or simply to make suggestions on new products and how we can improve, we’ll talk to you directly about it all!
This level of accountability makes Biologi the first skincare product range in the world that’s traceable from plant to bottle. We can tell you exactly where the ingredients in your Biologi bottle come from and how they impact the skin you’re in.
And that will never change.
We don’t have a supply chain. Everyone of our ingredients is sourced directly from the farmer.
Finger lime is the single- plant ingredient used to make Bf Restore Face & Body Serum. We have a close relationship with a grower in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales near the Biologi warehouse.
This robust relationship with a local supplier enables us to boost the local economy and quite literally pick our finger lime for your Bf Serum.
Kakadu plum is the single-plant ingredient extract used in Bk Rejuvenation Eye Serum.
Indigenous Australians have been using Kakadu plum as a source of nutrition and as an antiseptic remedy for thousands of years. We source all our Kakadu plum from growers across the Northern Territory and Western Australia and use farms where the product is harvested by those living in Aboriginal communities.
Our wholesale arrangements are only made with legitimate companies to contribute to agriculture across the Arnhem Land.
Davidson plum is a superior fruit in that it doesn’t lose any of its nutritional content once frozen. We source all our Davidson plum (the single-plant ingredient in Bd Luminosity Serum) from a local grower in the Byron Bay Hinterland. Having a local supplier means the fruit can be frozen as soon as it’s picked and transferred to the Biologi warehouse for extraction and bottling.
Quandong is our hard working extract for the Bqk Radiance Serum night-time ritual. We worked hard to carefully choose a farmer with ethical and sustainable practises to align with all our suppliers.
All quandong is supplied from Broken Hill in New South Wales where we have direct contact with the growers and farmers.
Mountain pepper berry
Mountain pepper berry is our newest single-plant ingredient used in Bm Regenerate Anti-Ageing Serum. The native fruit thrives in cooler climes and is harvested in the foothills of the Blue Tier in the North-East Highlands of Tasmania.
Soapberry is the hero ingredient in our revolutionary, world-first cleanser, Bc Refresh Cleanser. Sourced from the generally arid Himalayan region of Pakistan, soapberry – or soap nuts – thrive in the climatic divide where they have been harvested for thousands of years.
Br Organic Rosehip Oil is extract of rosa canina and appears in your bottle exactly as it’s found in its natural source in Namibia, Africa. Cold pressed and unrefined, we’ve managed to preserve the valuable fats and proteins that protect the plant in nature making ours the most untouched rosehip oil available.
While most skincare products have numerous people and processes in the supply chain, at Biologi, our four-year experience as a retail product and almost 20 years of research into plant extracts, tell us that less is more.
Where possible, we avoid any intermediaries so we can provide consumers with traceable products while maintaining open and honest relationships with our suppliers.
Biologi bottle swap powered by TerraCycle
With a commitment to both sustainability and preserving plant extracts to provide the maximum benefit to the skin, our packaging and bottling practices are continually under review.
As our serum bottles are currently unable to go into household recycling, we utilise TerraCycle Zero Waste Boxes to help us reduce our contribution to landfill.
We invite each of our customers to return their used bottles to us to receive a 15% discount on their following order to encourage them to help us reduce our environmental impact.
Rest assured, our commitment to sustainability means we’re constantly researching new ways to reduce our impact on the environment without compromising our plant extracts.

We hold ourselves wholly accountable to our customers and welcome your feedback, questions and suggestions via email, DM and through online chat.
Biologi was created to help consumers use plant extracts to heal, nourish and protect skin in a way that synthetically-based products cannot.
An important part of this mission is for consumers to understand what’s in the products they use and where they come from. We also want to build relationships with our customers to increase transparency throughout the industry so no one is ever left in any doubt about what they’re applying to their skin.
