Our products are 100% not tested on animals. We comply with the relevant Industrial Chemical laws in sale/use of cosmetic ingredients across Australia and New Zealand and we have all the relevant safety ingredient information / MSDS certificates. We’re manufactured according to GMP standards. Our products are formulated and manufactured in Australia, but we source our active ingredients from Europe because there is a ban on animal testing there.
Yes we use sustainable natural ingredients. For example, our dragon’s blood (croton lecheri sap) is ethically sourced and no harm comes to the trees. No parabens or sulphates are used in our formulations either.
No harm comes to the trees – we obtain our dragon’s blood by cutting the bark in a diagonal manner and bleeding the latex. This method is employed by native locals, which helps preserve the trees, allowing it to be a renewable and sustainable resource. It also supports local communities and fair trade.
No dragon’s or animals are harmed in the making of our Dragon’s Blood Facial Sculpting Gel. The hero ingredient is the rich red sap of the Croton Lecheri Tree in the Amazon rainforest. It’s called Dragon’s Blood because when the bark is cut the sap oozes red. It has been used for centuries by native tribes and has all kinds of incredible rejuvenating abilities.

If you have adult acne – or skin that’s both dry and oily in patches, then Dragon’s Blood is definitely worth a try. It will not aggravate breakouts in any way. Dragon’s Blood (croton lecheri) itself is renowned for its healing and soothing properties. The formula is very gentle especially on sensitive skin. Remember you’ll notice a difference in firmness immediately – make sure you use morning and night for fasted results.
Our sculpting gel needs to be applied to skin free of impurities such as excess oils, dead skin cells, make-up and pollution. A facial cleansing brush will give you the deepest clean for maximum results. Any product infused with retinol or hyaluronic acid will compliment the hydrating and rejuvenating effect of this gel.
For maximum lifting and firming results, apply a very generous layer to clean skin before layering your daily moisturiser, sunscreen and make-up. Massage into face, neck, hands and décolletage. At night, use over your regular night cream, or directly onto clean, dry skin. Our formula is non-greasy, super absorbent and soaks in instantly, so make sure you use liberally for best results.
The rich red sap from the Croton Lechleri tree (i.e. Dragon’s Blood), has historically been used for Centuries for medicinal and healing purposes. It’s ideal for sensitive or stressed skin to plump- out lines and counter-act visible sagging, while protecting from the elements while also hydrating the deepest layers of the skin.
If you’re worried about sagging skin, then either range is a really fantastic choice. It all depends on your skin type and lifestyle – but we would usually recommend the SUPERLIFT range for very fragile, maturing skin and crepiness. It addresses the signs of ageing, but also works especially on sagging neck skin and reducing the look of double chin fat. So if you’re worried about drooping skin on the neck or creping skin and want to see a more toned and strengthened look, SUPERLIFT could be the right fit for you. You’ll see a difference within 3 weeks.
Dragon’s Blood has the same lifting and anti-sag benefits, but you’ll notice more of an immediate rejuvenation effect. This range definitely focuses more on wrinkle reduction and facial contouring. So if you’re worried about skin firmness but maybe not quite as worried about the skin from the chin down, or crepey looking skin, then Dragon’s Blood is probably a better choice for you.
Serums are a lot more concentrated and packed with active ingredients designed to penetrate your skin to work effectively and fast. OXYGEN-C is designed to layer under either your Dragon’s Blood or SUPERLIFT® products. OXYGEN-C will prevent your skin from loosing additional collagen through skin stressors such as pollution and UV rays. Both SUPERLIFT® and Dragon’s Blood are packed with powerful actives to increase collagen which makes them ideal to work hand in hand.
Serums aren’t a replacement for your everyday moisturiser, moisturisers are richer & designed create a barrier on top of your skin to moisturise the outer layer and keep all of the good stuff in! So always make sure you layer your daily moisturisers and nights cream on top of your serum.
