Synergie Skin’s mission is to create skin health and confidence through exceptional skincare, harnessing the synergy of science and nature. Founded in 2005, we are a 100% Australian owned and internationally recognised company that is highly regarded by cosmetic medical practitioners and skin clinicians as their preferred cosmeceutical range. All Synergie Skin products are formulated by biological scientist and cosmetic chemist, Terri Vinson (BSc. DipFormChem. DipEd. ASCC).
Our ‘Clean Science’ philosophy is at the heart of the Synergie Skin suite of skincare and intelligent makeup. We take the very best of laboratory synthesised ingredients and the very best naturally derived ingredients and combine the two in synergy to create highly effective, evidence-based, ethical skincare.
All Synergie products are supported by clinical data and are entirely free of questionable ingredients such as parabens, SLS or other sodium sulphates, phthalates, PEGs, propylene glycol, artificial colours, synthetic fragrances, talc, and dimethicone. The long-term health of your skin is always our top priority.
Terri is both managing director and cosmetic chemist, possessing a rich understanding of science with a passion to educate. Her academic background in biological science enables her to formulate with a holistic understanding of all ingredients, their functions, and their efficacy on the skin. From the initial concept to the final product, she oversees the evolution of every product she creates.
Terri is always at the forefront of the cosmetic industry and seeks to formulate only with the latest in active, ethical, and safe ingredients, according to her Clean Science philosophy. Key ingredients in our formulations are verified by clinical data and supported by sound science, not the latest fad.
SUSTAINABILITY & ETHICAL MANUFACTURING
Synergie Skin is dedicated to creating an environmentally positive manufacturing facility. We are committed to a sustainable waste management system and manufacturing processes and are proud to pledge that our Australian facility will be run entirely by solar energy by 2022.
All our labels and boxes are printed with soy inks and our packaging is made from recyclable PET and paper pulp. eCommerce orders are packaged with biodegradable and compostable material that you can take from your box to your garden − no bubble wrap here!
Furthermore, all ingredients used in Synergie Skin formulations are sustainably sourced from suppliers who show full traceability and pass our strict suitability measures. These strict guidelines include no deforestation, eco-friendly manufacturing of all raw ingredients, utilising minimal energy and water in production, using only fair and ethical labour sourcing, and choosing only suppliers that adhere to our animal Cruelty Free platform.
Our sustainable and ethical values will be upheld throughout all levels of manufacturing and packaging to ensure our planet can be as healthy as your skin!
Cruelty free formulations are very important to us. Alternatives to animal testing are not only more ethical, but also generate more accurate research. To achieve and maintain our proudly held CCF Australia certification, Synergie Skin has consistently proven that every product and every ingredient is free from animal testing.
All Synergie Skin products are 100% Australian made and owned, with our head office and laboratory based in Melbourne, Australia. We are a transparent company, welcoming clients through open doors and we are always ready to provide information about our processes.
Our company and its premises are unique by virtue of being 100% vertically integrated. Terri formulates, tests and develops her products in our Melbourne laboratory. Afterwards, they are manufactured, packaged, labelled and dispatched in our warehouse. Having all operations under the one roof allows us to carefully control each element of production, from concept to shipment.
For this reason, we can respond to industry demands and improve our products more swiftly than others, all with the highest degree of excellence. Clients can be assured that they are receiving the finest quality skincare and makeup that Australia can produce, with each order lovingly packaged by the Synergie Skin team.
