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.

Improvements with everything I needed

I've had consistent skin issues for a year. I changed my diet, my skin care, got a filter for my water, light therapy. You name it I tried it. I had eczema, dermatitis, constant acne on my forehead and around my mouth. I've been using sabbia co for over a month and have seen great improvement! I love the bb cream so much!! It's the cherry on top! It's so worth the money because my stress is lower, the products have worked great, and I love knowing it's coming from such a good brand! Thank you sabbia Co for helping me love my skin again and helping me resolve my acne problems!

Poor gel

I bought the starter kit
The moisturiser is good but the glowing gel is not cleaning properly as it feels that it is just water. Sunscreen was amazing but I won't be buying any more porducts apart from the sunscreen

Great sunscreen

Lovely mineral sunscreen, not too thick doesnt leave a white cast.
Luxe packaging, with quality pump.
Tube option would be also handy for travel etc.

Fades as the day goes on

This applies really well when you first put it on. However, as the day goes on it starts to fade & you have zero coverage left after about 4-5 hours.

LOVE IT

Wow I am loving this sunscreen! I live in North Queensland and like to wear sunscreen on my face everyday. I love that this one doesn’t leave me feeling sticky, greasy, and smelling like sunscreen. It’s really light feeling on my face too. I have really sensitive skin too and just like all the other sabbia co products I use, my skin loves their sunscreen too 🤩

The perfect glow!!

I don’t love wearing make so bb creams are my best friend when I want to feel a little more put together! I love how this evens out my skin tone without hiding my natural skin & gives a warm luminous glow! It’s perfect for that everyday no makeup look!!

BEAUTIFUL BB CREAM!

This Sabia BB Cream is absolutely beautiful! The cream feels so soft and gentle on your skin. The coverage is perfect for an everyday look. The bronzing shimmer/glow that it leaves on your face is STUNNING! And all natural!! The absolute best BB cream I have ever used.

Best BB cream ever!

I’m someone who doesn’t wear much make up at all and this BB cream gives me the perfect light coverage I like AND it gives me a beautiful glow! There’s a slight shimmer in this BB cream and I’m OBSESSED! By far the best BB cream I’ve used.

BB cream of my dreams!

Yes it’s me, Katie! And of course I have to review this gorgeous product! I am so proud of this formulation and hope you all love it as much as the Sabbia team and I do! 💚

Best Mineral BB cream I’ve ever used!

The Sabbia Co mineral BB cream gives me a natural finish with a beautiful glow, it’s honestly the best I’ve tried. It blends really easily, and wears so well all day. I apply two layers if I want more coverage for an event or date night and it’s perfect. The best part though, is that it’s actually doing great things for my skin, other then other synthetic foundations or bb creams on the market.

Refilling= satisfaction!!

I receive a great sense of satisfaction being able to use my Sabbia co refills. I will continue to use my bottles as long as I can. Bonus is that I get to help reduce waste for the planted.

Loved!

I have been trialling this BB cream for at least a month or two now. It has been something I reach for consistently when I’m having a lazy no makeup makeup day and just want to neutralise my skin and add some glow. If that’s what you’re looking for you’ll absolutely love it. My favourite part is that it dries down and sets soon after applied which I found quite rare in a BB cream. Nice work SabbiaCo x

Best BB cream I’ve ever used!

Honesty my favourite BB cream! It blends really easily, gives you the most amazing glow and a natural finish. I love that it hydrates your skin but it doesn’t leave it oily. A must have in my makeup bag!

Love!!

I love the BB creme. I wear little makeup day to day and I find it’s the perfect cover. I love the smell and how smooth it is. Brightens up my face so nicely. The confidence I need!

Wonderful BB Cream!!

Firstly, the smell is amazing! Citrusy and such a delight.
Second, the application is smooth and creamy. Pat it on for best results!
It dries amazingly after application and leaves your skin feeling hydrated and glowing with a matte finish.
My favourite go to no make up look. You won’t be sorry you bought this!!

Incredible Prodcuct

Wow! Talk about an incredible product and formulation. My skin was instantly blurred, bright and happy after my first application with the BB Cream. Not only did it make me look and feel absolutely flawless, my super sensitive skin did NOT react and that means my skin was happy too.
I Love this product and the collagen serum to death! Awesome job guys! Xx

THE BEST.

Honestly it really is the best! Feels really nice and lightweight on skin and super nourishing! Love it ❤️‍🔥

Best BB Cream I have ever used!

I’m absolutely obsessed with this product! I have been wearing it when I need to go out somewhere and also to work. Firstly I LOVE how lightweight it is but is also still buildable if you’re wanting a more full coverage look. It lasts all day, leaves my skin with the most beautiful looking glow and super hydrated. Definitely my go to, you’ve done it again! Well done Sabbia Co 🥰

Insane product!!

My skin has never felt so good after using the bb cream, insane product!!

Morning skin

I bought the sunscreen to try it out and I love it. I'm thinking about getting the starter kit as this product feels quite amazing on my face.

The best

I have worn possibly every BB cream ever made...okay maybe that's a slight over exaggeration but I wear a BB cream every day and I have tried a lot. I can say hands down this is the best. The coverage is sheer but buildable. It goes on really easy but dries down like skin. I applied with finger tips. No sticky film, no balling, just skin that looks more airbrushed. It smells really nice as well. I was a little worried because it looks a little shimmery before applying, but once it's actually on your face there's no obvious shimmer at all. It's wears well, it's amazing! Worth every cent!!! The finish is a natural Matte, just like skin as well. Love love love it!

Best BB cream I have used

Love the texture, glow and everything about this BB cream. Have already have multiple comments on how nice my skin looks when I’m wearing it!
