1. We said G’day to Sephora around the world
Building on the strong partnership we already had with Sephora in Australia, 2019 saw Alpha-H launch into Sephora in new locations right around the world! These include the USA, France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Russia, Portugal, Sweden, New Zealand and India, just to name a few. Find more on our online stockists page.
2. We supported courageous women
We are proud to have supported the amazing work done by RizeUp Australia this year, providing them with welcome packs for the courageous women they help to leave violent households. We’ll also be topping off the year by taking part in TVSN Cares Day and will donate 5% of our total sales to RizeUp.
3. We launched new-look more sustainable packaging
Have you seen our new packaging? Not only does it look pretty, but it’s also better for the planet as it contains up to 40% post consumer recycled materials. To top it off, 100% of our tubes, bottle and cardboard packaging is 100% recyclable.
4. We reduced our CO2 emissions by nearly 67,000kg
Thanks to being located on Queensland’s Gold Coast, we have an abundance of sunshine. That’s why we covered the roof of our head office and manufacturing plant with over 350m2 of solar panels. This allows us to manufacture up to 10,000 bottles of Liquid Gold in a day using nothing but solar power, and also means we’ve reduced our CO2 emissions by almost 67,000kg for the year. Read more about our sustainability efforts.
5. We encouraged conversations on what ageing authentically really means
Ageing is inevitable; you may as well do it authentically! To celebrate the launch of our Hyaluronic 8 serum this year we chatted to a few of our lovely friends about what ageing authentically meant to them. Check out their responses here.
6. We championed Women in Business
For the fifth year in a row, Alpha-H was proud to support the Queensland Women in Business Awards as a State Major Partner across Brisbane, the Gold Coast and The Downs, which includes Central and Northern Queensland.
These awards recognise and honour exceptional women who are making a difference right across Queensland and provides a platform to honour outstanding and successful businesswomen and industry achievers. These awards encourage ambition, empower confidence and inspire new female leaders both now and into the future.
