Embalm: “To Preserve”

Embalm: “To Preserve”

Our Philosophy

The value of preserving our youth, our precious genes, and our health is priceless. 

Embalm was created to help you cultivate beautiful skin, and to preserve it in its best possible condition. 

Similarly, the ingredients are resilient and reliable, because they have managed to preserve themselves in the harsh Australian outback. Many of the plants in our skincare have withstood extreme environmental conditions as well as sun exposure. Renowned for their high levels of antioxidants and super nutrients, the Australian Botanicals in our range are second to none.

Our range continues to be manufactured and designed under the strict supervision of our founder, Mel Driver, in Australia

Our key ingredients are ethically-sourced from their best known country of origin to ensure the highest quality available. They are uniquely-powerful and include:

  • Kakadu Plum 
  • Quandong
  • Tasmanian Pepper Berry
  • Sandalwood Seed Oil
  • Lilly Pilly
  • Lemon Myrtle
  • Finger Lime Caviar

Press Coverage & Awards

Embalm Skincare has won several product awards and is regularly featured in leading online and offline publications.

Embalm Backstory: Creating a Hypo-allergenic & “NO BS” range

Embalm Backstory: Creating a Hypo-allergenic & “NO BS” range

It all began with our founder, Mel Driver, suffering a severe allergic reaction to synthetic products. 

Mel was shocked to discover that the ingredients she had been using on her skin were also used in commercial garage degreaser, and brake fluid. To her dismay, her research further led her to discover that products targeted at families with sensitive skin do not contain any ingredients that genuinely benefit, protect and preserve their skin.

She then decided to create a range that was honest, transparent, and 100% natural and hypoallergenic. A range that women could trust – especially women with sensitive skin, allergies, and those that had repeatedly been misled by false advertising and confusing ingredient lists. 

Armed with a Diploma in Organic Skincare Science, and a passion for the environment and its furry inhabitants, Mel launched a 100% natural, cruelty-free, vegan (and now multi-award winning and PETA certified) range in 2013.

Besides being an award-winning skincare formulator, Mel is passionate about educating and empowering women to make intelligent and ethical choices when it comes to their health. In terms of skincare, this means being aware of and avoiding the health risks associated with harmful synthetic ingredients. 

“I believe in holistic living – and in the power of nature. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your health for beautiful skin, it’s that simple. I want women to look AND feel good.” says Mel, “Our range is founded on intense scientific research and deep love and care, so it never fails to deliver skin-loving benefits to so many women globally. We are proud to have created a range that can truly help generate, restore, and maintain a healthy glow.”

Embalm: Brand Values & Education

Embalm: Brand Values & Education



Many skincare brands on the market are now claiming to be “natural”, “organic”, “paraben-free” and “safe for sensitive skin”, as consumers become increasingly conscious about ingredients. Even though green beauty is on the rise globally, the average consumer is under-protected from false marketing due to a lack of industry regulation. A brand can have 1-5% of non-natural, non-organic, chemical or substitute ingredients and still claim certified organic status.

At Embalm, we have a 100% honesty and transparency policy, which has earned us numerous awards and certifications to date. Our consumers can be assured that we are strict, honest and transparent about the efficacy of our products and how we advertise and promote them.

We do not approve of green-washing, animal testing, synthetic preservatives, or anything else that will compromise the quality or results of our products, or cause harm to our clients, the environment, or to animals.

As a compassionate and ethical brand, our range is entirely vegan and cruelty-free, and contains no animal-derived ingredients whatsoever. 

Educating and empowering our consumers on a regular basis is also a priority for us. We regularly release beauty content curated by our founder on the Embalm Blog.

We regularly collaborate with high-quality contributions from beauty educators, skin experts, makeup artists, and beauty bloggers, to ensure that our consumers and subscribers are always well-informed of important industry-related topics, and the latest in beauty.

OMG Embalm Skincare is the bomb!!!

I used to be a beauty therapist and have used a lot of the so-called “top” beauty products on the market and i can assure you that the embalm skincare products are better than some of the biggest brands.

My skin looks and feels amazing and I highly recommend Embalm Skincare.

Love, love, love these products.

They smell divine and to know that they are all natural and no nasties are going onto my skin is a huge bonus.

I am a major fan of the body scrub, heavenly.
