About Our Natural Ingredients

Naturally rich in anti-oxidants and omega oils, Plant Essentials is just what your skin needs.  No synthetic ingredients, just pure plant therapy.

Plant Essentials is the creation of Toni McMahon, a local of Townsville since 1989. In 2003 Toni purchased 2 existing Aromatherapy stores called Perfect Potion in Townsville & began the journey of research & experimentation to create the Plant Essentials range.  

As a former heavy vehicle mechanic Toni knew the dangers of many chemicals used in the industry, which shockingly are used in many conventional & “natural” skin care brands. Her experiences as a scuba diver on the Great Barrier Reef gives Toni a passion to protect our precious environment. As an aromatherapist, Toni has a strong focus on the careful selection of pure essential oils to boost the powerful effectiveness of every product.

You’ll find nothing in Plant Essentials eco skin care to harm you, your family or the environment. The Plant Essentials range has been developed to specifically suit our harsh local environment, rich in key ingredients such as Rosehips, Avocado, Sandalwood, Shea Butter,  Beeswax, Walnut Oil & Cocoa Butter to soothe, hydrate, nourish and repair, delicate & damaged skin. 

Plant Essentials is one of the few skin care ranges in North Queensland not made in a factory, it is still hand made in small batches right here in the North. Even the packaging used to contain Plant Essentials is minimal and recyclable. Plant Essentials is constantly sourcing ingredients as locally as possible to support our local economy and to minimize the negative impact on the environment through transportation of goods.  You’ll find Plant Essentials Eco Skin Care in a variety of earth friendly outlets, health food stores, natural beauty salons, & locally owned community minded businesses.
