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.

Love it

I purchased the skin starter kit a month ago. My skin was red, blotchy with small white spots. These products have improved it already, can’t wait to see further improvement as I continue to use it.

collagen c serum
Aleisa Blow
This serum made me look as though I know what sleep is

Wish I had started using this sooner! Been using this serum mostly around my eyes (still have another vit c serum I need to finish) and it has completely brightened my under eye area, I look like a new gal! This with the BB cream is the perfect combo for energised looking skin :)

I’m really happy with this product
I’m an older woman with sensitive skin & this product is just amazing.

Fantastic product and great price

Best nontoxic sunscreen ever!

I LOVE this sunscreen, knowing there’s no harmful ingredients in my sunscreen is a must but it also gives a glowy look and keeps my skin hydrated all day. I wish I could lather my whole body in it. Thank you Sabbia Co, never stop making this please 🤎

Great product.

I love the colour and ease of use however the coverage was barely noticeable. I ended up layering twice more but still had very little coverage and after that many layers the finish on my skin was almost glittery and not flattering. I’m officially giving up on BB creams as they just don’t offer the finish I’m after 😢

Love this moisturiser

This moisture feels so light.
I apply it after the collagen c serum , it makes my face feel hydrated and plump and feels beautiful on the skin . Absolutely love this combination with the vitamin C serum .
Thanks for wonderful skincare Katie and your passion behind it !!! Love !!

Very good!

I wish had this sooner

I can’t believe the difference in my skin after a couple of weeks, wish I farted using this earlier to prevent aging

Absolutely love this serum , use it morning and night , gives a beautiful glow and my skin feels plump after applying! Love !!

Amazing

Love their products, esp. this BB cream.

The very best moisturiser you can buy!

If you’ve been wondering whether to try this or not just do it, you won’t regret it. I’ve been on the hunt for a clean and nontoxic moisturiser and this ticked all my boxes. I thought initially I wouldn’t like it as it’s lightweight and I like a thicker moisturiser at night time but my skin loves this and is more hydrated now than when it was when I would use a thicker moisturiser at night. My breakouts heal quicker when I use it, my skin loves it and so do I. If I could buy this moisturiser to use on my whole body I would!! Thank you Sabbia Co, please never stop making this! X

Love it!

I love being able to use refills with a beautiful, sustainable brand and quality products. Easy to use and amazing for the planet!

Have trouble with the pump a bit

Nice product but have a bit of problems with the pump from time to time

Absolutely obssesed

I cannot believe the difference in my skin only after a few weeks of use. Completely acne free, scaring is reducing and I feel so confident going makeup free. I'm excited to try some other products now.

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

Hi Marta,

I'm sorry you haven't had the experience you were hoping for yet. Our botanical glow cleanser isn't a gel cleanser which is why it feels watery, we use potent plant extracts instead of adding in unnecessary fillers. To use the cleanser correctly you can spray it directly onto damp skin and it will slight foam while using in circle motions, it is recommended to cleanse for 1 minute. You can also spray the cleanser onto the damp konjac sponge that is in the face kit and repeat the steps above.

Please reach out if you have any other questions.

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.

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 🤩

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.
