About Sabbia Co

Sabbia Co was born after ocean loving Burleigh Heads Founders Katie and Dave found themselves on a remote beach in Sri Lanka and devastated over the amount of single-use personal items they were surrounded by.

Katie has a huge passion for skin health and well-being, while Dave is a surfer duuude and green-thumb. They both do their bit in their home to reduce their footprint, but wanted to do more. And that’s why they launched Sabbia Co in September 2019.

An ethical brand with minimal impact on the environment, that creates unique facial kits out of sustainable, biodegradable, reusable and chemical free tools. These kits cleanse, exfoliate and remove makeup with just WATER!

Along with sustainably sourced and packaged skincare that is formulated by Katie herself. Katie then works with 3 Australian labs to bring her formulations to life.

Sri Lanka 2018

we found ourselves on a remote beach and devastated over the amount of single-use personal items we were surrounded by. When we arrived home we decided to minimise all single-use items in our home. As we started to research and test reusable products we fell in love with many amazing sustainable swaps. Our mission was no longer to overhaul our home but everyone else’s.

Meet The Maker (Katie)

Hello #sabbiasquad ! I’m Katie, I am the Founder and Formulator here at Sabbia Co. For as long as I can remember I have been passionate about skincare and ‘making potions’ as my 5-year-old self would say.

I grew up in Port Douglas, Queensland with an Italian Mum and Australian Dad. I would say that my Mum taught me about self love/care and to choose fresh healthy produce to help my body flourish. My Dad is an eager adventurer and was the one that helped me fall in love with the planet, almost every weekend and holiday was spent on the reef or out west looking at the star. Every Sunday was spent at my Nonna’s enjoying fresh homemade meals from produce sourced in her backyard. My family and upbringing are where I found my passion for the planet and the importance of paddock to plate or more so seed to skin (I did just make that term up). 

Throughout my late teens and early twenties, I had many friends struggle with hormonal acne and even experienced a little myself when coming off contraception. I saw friends using products on their faces that were bleaching their towels and thought this cannot be safe! The redness and inflammation of their skin showed that in fact, the products were striping and harmful, not to mention what was happening once the products were washed down the drain and into our waterways. 

This began a little hobby ‘Katie’s Essentials’ where I would make scrubs, facial oils, and balms for friends to help heal their skin. I had just turned 20 and Europe was calling, so I up and left my life with a backpack and no plan. 

My Journey

I have studied Cosmetic Chemistry and Traditional Chinese Medicine to be able to infuse scientific chemistry with natural plant medicine to create sustainable skincare that is results driven (with over 950, 5 star reviews to prove it).

Formulation Process

2 of our core values are ‘Authenticity’ and ‘Quality Products’ I love sharing the formulation process because we pride ourselves in the level of education, quality and testing that we put into every single product.

My Commitment

I am forever grateful to have the opportunity to work in a role that lights my soul up every single day, to connect and help customers reach their skin health goals, and most importantly to educate, create change and help our planet.

When I returned home in 2017 I met my now Husband Dave, who convinced me that a surf trip to Sri Lanka would be the perfect first trip together. Through long travel transfers, a few horrible hostels, hidden gems, and many samosas we hit it off. The trip was amazing until we arrived at the surf break that Dave hadn’t stop talking about. Not only were there no waves but the beach was littered with single-use personal care items (makeup wipes, toothbrushes, Qtips), my heart sunk.

When we arrived home we decided to minimise all single-use items in our home. As we started to research and test reusable products we fell in love with many amazing sustainable swaps. Our mission was no longer to overhaul our home but everyone else’s. And this is when Sabbia Co was born. 

We launched in September 2019, with 3 products. Our hero ‘face it face kit’, cleanse kit and tone kit, 3 kits that remove makeup/zinc, cleanse and exfoliate with just water. This was essential for us as we love to travel and pack light. 

As our community grew the need for sustainable skincare was a daily request, so for our first birthday, we launched sustainably sourced and packaged skincare. Something I had always dreamt of. Over the years I have studied Cosmetic Chemistry, Traditional Chinese Medicine (Gua Sha, Facial Massage, etc), and many other ‘alternative’ (as my Mum might say) practices.

I am forever grateful to have the opportunity to work in a role that lights my soul up every single day, to connect and help customers reach their skin health goals, and most importantly to educate, create change and help our planet.

Amazing!

I have oily/combination skin and this bb cream is the best I’ve tried! It layers so easily and gives me the perfect no make up makeup look! It has a lovely natural finish and gives me the nicest natural glow. I love that there’s minimal ingredients and cruelty free, will absolutely repurchase!

Smells amazing!

This mist is so refreshing and it smells so so good! It makes your skin feel hydrated and it's perfect to spray on during the day and before you begin layering your products!

My skin feels so smooth!

I've been having issues with my skin for a while, with both acne/congestion and sensitivity in form of perioral dertmatitis. I use the Multi-vitamin moisturiser day and night with the occasional nights as a face mask as well. It has made such a difference to my skin! I have less breakouts and my sensitivity is pretty much gone!! I am so happy with this product and it really does repair your skin barrier! Love it

Beautiful cream

Love the natural coverage this cream gives me leaving my skin feeling soft and moisturised. Best BB Cream that I've used.

My favourite part of my self care routine :)

I've recently started using the Gua Sha and the antioxidant repair oil to go with it. I absolutely love it! It's one of the best parts of my weekly skincare routine as I really feel like I'm nourishing my skin with pure goodness. I have very acne prone skin so I tend to use this before I wash my face so there's not too much oil that remains on the skin.

Can't get enough!

When I first bought this I thought it was a bit of a luxury, buy but since I've added it into my skin routine it's become a must have! Living in hot and humid Brisbane this helps me wake up in the morning and feel fresh for the day. I can't get enough of it.

Loving the moisturiser!

I have skin that's very prone to acne and I went through so many treatments and different products growing up, so whenever I try a new product I'm a bit worried it will cause me to breakout. This one has not disappointed! I love the silky smooth feel to it and how it hydrates my skin without blocking pores or making the skin feel really sticky. LOVE IT!

Great course, exactly what I was looking for

Just WOW!!

I was lucky enough to be a test bunny for this course and it is something else! I have learnt so much and feel empowered to launch and grow my business through social media. Thank you Katie for sharing so much knowledge and personal lessons. I can't wait to see what else you create to help others.

Another stunner!

Yes yes yes! This moisturiser is wonderful. Just as other reviews described; miraculously light yet super nourishing. A small pump goes a long way which also makes it seem like it is quite economical. I already use the BB cream and love that. Very impressed to have a duo that makes my skin routine so clean and simple. Well done Sabbia Co!

Super lightweight & hydrating

The perfect everyday moisturiser. Lightweight but also super hydrating.

Second time purchasing

This is the second time I have purchased. It lasted me awhile. Keeps my skin refreshed and look healthy.

My best friend

I cannot leave the house without using this BB cream. It makes my skin glow all day long. Super lightweight and feels nice on my skin.

Removes all makeup!

The makeup remover pads are magical! They remove all makeup and spf, including eye makeup. Super easy to use and you just need water!

The best duo!

I love being able to swap between both masks depending on how my skin feels. After the holidays there's been a lot of drinks involved and using the charcoal mask to detoxify my skin was definitely needed! The matcha helps calm down my breakouts and makes my skin feel soft and hydrated.

Brightening my acne scars!

I began using this serum 3 weeks ago and it has definitely brightened up my skin and my dark spots from acne. I can't wait to see how my skin looks in a few weeks again after using SabbiaCo for a bit longer! :)

My skin loves it!

At first, I was a bit sceptical towards the fact that you use it as a spray since I was so used to oil cleansers. But after using it together with the Matcha cleanse kit, it all made sense! My skin loves it and it makes it feel fully clean but still hydrated and not dry like some other cleansers make my skin feel. It also smells wonderful!

Beautiful oil!

This oil is amazing and it really does repair your skin. I've struggled with acne and scars and have found that my skin has calmed down and repaired itself a lot quicker after I began using this oil. I put it on when I do my skincare night routine and wake up feeling soft with a more even skin tone. Love it!

Didn’t know I needed this

I thought mists were just for fun really but my serums seem to be so much more effective and hydrating when I use this. Also great for during the day

The best

Hands down the best bb cream / foundation I have ever used. Love that you can layer it for a fuller look

Perfect mask

Literally transforms my skin after every use

Just wow

I brought this after seeing an ad for dark circles and was a little hesitant but it lives up!

Results

Can’t believe how quickly this and the cleanse kit has transformed my skin

The best

Has changed and healed my skin like nothing I’ve ever used before

Love

I love the niacinamide serum so much, it gives my skin a fresh glowing look
