My name is Sara and I am the owner of Calla Lane Clean Beauty Bar.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved discovering and experiencing products that make me look and feel good. Taking a quiet moment to experience the texture, colour or fragrance of a beauty product brings me an immense amount of joy.
My relationship with beauty products, and the beauty and personal care industry, started to change when a life altering health issue made me more mindful about my wellness. And so, 15 years ago, my clean beauty journey began.
I found that swapping out my personal and skincare products for cleaner versions was possible but when it came to makeup up, there were very few options. The few that were available weren’t nearly as effective or as luxurious as their “conventional” counterparts. The products didn’t last as long, weren’t as easy to apply and weren’t as richly pigmented.
After 15 years of researching, studying and trialling clean makeup products, I’m happy to be able to say that this has changed. Thanks to technology, there’s no compromise to be made anymore.
So, high-performing clean makeup products exist. Great! Still, there wasn’t one local destination where curious women like you and I could come together in seeking out beautiful makeup brands and products made by people who are driven by a respect for both humanity and the planet.
If I couldn’t find a place for us to come together, I would create one.
And so, Calla Lane was born.
The Calla Lane philosophy is simple:
To inspire clean, conscious beauty and authentic wellbeing from the inside out.
