Pamper by Nature is based in Monbulk, in Victoria’s Dandenong Ranges, and in our store you will find lots of certified organic, natural and non-toxic products from Australia and beyond, including some from our local region.
Pamper by Nature was founded by me, Pam Northey in 2015. I’m a mum of four lovely children and I am committed to adjusting my life so that I am living a much healthier lifestyle for the benefit of not only my partner, my children, my future grandchildren and myself but also to this beautiful planet that we have the privilege to live on.
It all started years ago when my son returned home after serving 9 months in Afghanistan with the Australian Defence Force. He wanted me to buy lots of these more expensive organic products, everything from food to cleaning products. To be honest, at the time, it just seemed like a waste of money to me. I mean I could buy all of the common household products at a much cheaper price. My parents used them, almost everyone I knew had them in their house, and now so did I. It wasn’t something I ever gave much thought to.
It was only after his very persistant attitude that I actually started researching what he was saying. I couldn’t believe the amount of products in every room of my house; kitchen, bathroom, laundry, so many bottles that contained toxic chemicals! Everyday I was using beauty and cleaning products that were being absorbed into my skin, as well as into the environment. Hmmm I thought, maybe he is right!!
What also astounded me was the fact that a lot of these chemicals were being tested on millions of laboratory animals worldwide. By boycotting these products that have been tested on animals we could all help make the government and big multi-million dollar companies adopt humane non-animal testing methods.
I also learnt more about Fair Trade. Before Fair Trade was established, 3rd world farmers were working for nothing when they actually had nothing themselves. By choosing Fair Trade products we can all help make a difference to the lives of the people that grow the food we eat and the goods we use.
The more I read, the more I thought organic living means so much more than I had initially thought. If each and everyone of us can make a little difference, then that adds up to a huge difference to our environment.
Mother Nature has everything we could possibly need to pamper our lives! So this is how "Pamper by Nature" came alive. I resigned from my job and designed an online store. Now lies ahead, months of sourcing natural and organic products hopefully to make it easier for others to start living an organic lifestyle too. Some brands you may be familiar with and some you may not, as I will also be sourcing from local and small Australian businesses to help support the Australian organic industry.
We also understand that we are all different and each have a different lifestyle. We wish to cater for all customers, both those looking for fully organic products, and also those who may just be looking for healthier options than they would find in the mainstream. Therefore a limited number of our products do contain a small amount of engineered fragrance and/or preservative. Please check the ingredients list for each product if you are wishing to avoid certain ingredients. We are proud of the fact that we have nothing to hide and will provide all the information you need to make your shopping experience with us a happy and healthy one.
To all you passionate lovers of all things natural and organic, please be patient, as it may take a while for me to build up this store until it is as I imagine it can be, a treasure chest full of natural and organic goodies!!
Please feel free to get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.
