Black Chicken Remedies
Black Chicken Remedies is an Australian award winning brand that harnesses the power of nature to create remedial products. That means all their skincare has a therapeutic benefit. Their story began in 2000, when the founder, Chey Birch was living in Bondi Sydney. For years she suffered from irritated skin and sinus issues but nothing she used healed the symptoms. After seeing a naturopath for some much needed advice it was suggested to her to take a good look at her life and the toxins she was unknowingly consuming. It wasn’t until she looked at her soaps, cleansers and scrubs that she was truly horrified. The ingredients in these products were synthetic and borderline toxic – and yet here she was lathering herself with these chemicals everyday. In hindsight it seems obvious her skin was trying to tell her something.
On her dining room table, in a little bowl with a black chicken painted on it, she began blending essential oils and therapeutic botanical extracts to create a natural remedy for her condition. She had no idea at the time that what she was creating would benefit thousands of people; She was just hoping to help herself. Chey didn’t spare anything when creating this nourishing blend. She used the highest quality natural and organic ingredients she could find and kept her product as an oil – that way she didn’t need to add any preservatives or binding agents. After a while her symptoms disappeared and friends began asking if she could bring ‘the black chicken’ to their homes. That little bowl with a chicken painted on it started her skin care company Black Chicken Remedies. They are now a global brand selling remedial products to people all over the world and helping people reconnect with their bodies.
