The limited-edition Thankyou Hand Wash will feature renowned Australian artist Sarah Kelk’s exclusive artwork titled ‘Momentum’, inspired by Thankyou’s funding for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programs in Bangladesh. As a Thankyou brand fan and change enthusiast, Kelk is honored to be part of a project that promotes female empowerment and helps people in need.

“I was raised on the mantra that if you can help someone, then you should – simple as that. If it’s in your power or reach to make someone’s life – or even just their day – better in any way, then you should. To do that in my work is a wonderful thing. To spread the good that Thankyou
does and be part of a project that’s inspiring women to have a voice in their community, push gender equality and empowering women to seek change is very important to me and my most favourite thing about this collaboration,” said Kelk.

Thankyou funded WASH programs aim to empower and equip women to be leaders and change makers through training and education that elevates women to a position of influence in their communities. The Earl Grey and Clary Sage hand wash boasts a natural blend of eight botanical essential oils. The Australian made hand wash has no SLS, SLES, EDTA or parabens, is vegan friendly and not tested on animals. The ingredients are naturally derived and gently cleanse the skin. The product will be available exclusively at Coles and retailing at $8.50.

BIOLAGE LAUNCH R.A.W (Real, Authentic, Wholesome)

Luxury haircare brand Biolage has introduced a modern-day hair revolution with the launch of environmentally-conscious Biolage R.A.W. (Real, Authentic, Wholesome). The lab-produced regime is packed full of natural origin ingredients, creating a unique sensorial experience that delivers true professional results, raising the bar for natural and high-performance hair care.

Biolage R.A.W. is a feel-good, look-good, do-good haircare collection that includes cleansing shampoos, restorative conditioners and dense masks. Ingredients are sustainably sourced from some of the world’s most exotic locations, like rich lava clay from Morocco, white beeswax from Africa,
spicy coriander from Bulgaria and American-grown yucca. The formulas are up to 98 percent biodegradable and pared down to the absolute essentials. Reflecting the Biolage R.A.W. core promise to remain deeply committed to sustainability and ethical practices, this new haircare collection comprises between 70 and 98 percent natural-origin formulas, without any typical synthetic elements such as silicones, sulfates, parabens or artificial colorants. Biolage R.A.W. also contains up to 98 percent biodegradable ingredients, which are bottled in 100 percent post-
consumer recycled (PCR) plastic packaging, meaning each R.A.W. product can be recycled. The shampoos are smooth, gel serums that work to a quick and abundant foam leaving the hair feeling natural and cleansed. Light and airy in texture, the conditioners facilitate softness, manageability and shine. The dense masks utilise conditioning clays, absorbing quickly for maximum benefit. The combination of all three delivers visible benefits to the hair including added hydration,shine and increased strength.

The true Biolage R.A.W. experience begins in a salon environment, at the Biolage R.A.W. health bar. A Biolage R.A.W. hair stylist guides clients through an indulgent experience delivering the ultimate hair detox and recharge. A sensorial journey commences with a rinse, followed by a luxurious massage, and the application of an invigorating shampoo, hydrating conditioner or dense Clay Mask or Milk Rinse (products that are applied only in a salon environment). To conclude the experience, the client’s hair is wrapped while they stay seated to enjoy the addictive fragrances of the Biolage R.A.W. collection. The hair will be left feeling nourished and incredibly cleansed. The Biolage R.A.W. healthy regime
continues with at-home care; a Biolage R.A.W. hair stylist completes the in-salon experience by prescribing one of four shampoo and conditioner collections to the client.

Biolage R.A.W. is available exclusively from Matrix salons nationwide. To locate your nearest salon, please visit
