The journey began whilst I was a student studying a Bachelor of Health science: majoring in Naturopathy. I was in a herbal manufacturing class and was asked to create a cream using chickweed to treat eczema. The prerequisite for the assignment was that I had to source chickweed and learn to make the cream myself.
I instantly fell in love with the process, there was a moment where I was like- this is it, this is the start of something big! I continued to study and in my spare time I was developing the said cream and selling to my close friends as an everyday moisturiser. The cream had significant results for people with severe eczema, which led me to defer my uni course and put my heart and soul into a luxury unisex range that was multipurpose, eco-friendly and made using the highest quality organic ingredients. My mission become clear. I was here to create a product that could be on par with the leading brands currently on the market and set a new bar within the cosmetic and beauty world in regards to sustainable and ethical practices. dope has never and will never test our products on animals or purchase any ingredients that are. Our approach is to adhere to our core principles which includes well-sourced, sustainable, high quality, organic, ethically made and fair trade ingredients.
Hemp Seed Oil mimics our natural sebum (oil) regulation, balancing, hydrating, and nourishing your skin. It also reverses the effects of oil loss, making it a superior moisturiser for dry, or dehydrated skin. If your skin is acne prone hemp seed oil effectively moisturises your skin without clogging pores or leaving a heavy, oily residue. It’s the ultimate blend for all your skins conditions. Clinical studies have shown hemp seed oil to be an effective treatment for dermatitis and eczema.
Yes indeed, I hand-make all my own products and I actually do grow one of our hero ingredients in my garden at home. It's called chickweed and it's native to Europe, it's a herb that's well known in traditional medicine. Famous for it’s soothing and healing qualities. Once the chickweed has bloomed I hand pick and infuse the herb with an Australian award winning organic olive oil from Northern Grampians. The olives are grown and processed using sustainable, certified organic farming practices and the olive oil combined with the chickweed is incredible ingredient for my products.
The rest of the ingredients are sourced within Australia and are certified organic. The one ingredient that is outsourced is the Shea Butter, which nutrient rich ingredient and hand-crafted from all natural, ethically sourced Shea nuts of the highest quality from women’s co-operatives that operate within Gumo – Kumbungu district in Tamale located in the Northern part of Ghana, West Africa.

This campaign runs parallel to our philosophy, alchemy within. It is inspired by my personal development and growth practices, acting as a catalyst for discovering self love, acceptance and empowerment.
I personally believe that our thoughts provide a glimpse into our core beliefs and that our beliefs play a major role in creating our realities and identities, including how we perceive ourselves. I'm a believer that everyone is their own alchemist, and that in engaging in our own internal dialogue affirming “I am”, you can enhance your feelings of self-love and worth, leading to a more positive relationship within yourself. I basically want to encourage the “I am” mantra as a powerful mindfulness tool that can easily integrated into your life.
I see dope as one of the leading eco brand in the green beauty and organic skincare market within Australia and worldwide. The range will transition to a be cannabis based, and all the products will be infused with CBD oil. I’m waiting for Australian laws to change because CBD is currently illegal. I also have every intention to make CBD oil elixirs that can be taken orally for optimum health, treatment of anxiety and many body ailments.
