The Truth in Beauty Starts Here

Proudly Supporting 
The Butterfly Foundation
The feeling that the way we look is a barrier to our success in life is one of the most significant causes of personal concern for young Australians. Over 70% of adolescent girls have body dissatisfaction, while the Mission Australia Youth Survey (2015) identified body dissatisfaction as one of the top ranked issues of concern for young people.
In a society where so much focus is on body shape and size, we are seeing an increase in high risk behaviours in young people and increased rates of reported eating disorders. Butterfly strives to be a catalyst for change: to value people for who they are rather than for their looks, and to provide effective prevention strategies and treatment options for those at risk of eating disorders.
Change is needed at community, health policy and clinical practice levels. Eating disorders are complex, life threatening psychiatric illnesses. The prevalence and impact of eating disorders are significantly underestimated in our society. There is
no immediate cure. While we know recovery is possible, the road is often long and complicated. Butterfly’s mission is to support and help anyone affected by eating disorders. 

Not done with your Christmas shopping and want to help?

We are proudly donating proceeds of every sale of our Jacqueline Evans x Tegan Lloyd Hand Soap to The Butterfly Foundation this December. 

Together we can help change the conversation about beauty, one girl at a time.

We can. We really can.
