Here, at Munday Body Care, it is our goal to deliver products with ingredients that are as safe as they are effective. We take pride in choosing ingredients that are beneficial to your physical and mental wellbeing. We want our products to be a reminder to take time out for yourself on a regular basis—to replenish and discover your authentic self beneath the layers.
If there is one thing we have learned through our travels, it’s that we must take care of ourselves before we can take care of others.
We can often get caught up in taking care of everyone around us, forgetting that we deserve just as much love and attention. Fostering a solid relationship with yourself is the foundation of everything else. How can you show up day after day, and be fully present, when you are running on empty?
Self-care shouldn’t be an indulgence—it shouldn’t feel like a luxury reserved for free time. It should be as necessary as brushing your teeth in the morning.
In today’s post, we’re talking about the ingredients we choose. We want to show you what it means to add quality natural ingredients into your skincare ritual.
Every time you use our products, we want you to feel truly pampered and cared for. We take great care in the ingredients we use in our products because we want you to get the most out of the time you’ve devoted to yourself.
Based in self-care traditions
Our signature collections—Moringa, Coffee and Thanaka (with more to come)—are based on what we have encountered throughout our travels. Many of the ingredients we use are inspired by self-care rituals practiced in Southeast Asia and in the Australian bushland because of their holistic healing benefits.
We spent time learning from locals about their self-care traditions and the benefits these ingredients have had on their overall wellbeing. We read countless research papers on different ingredients and the proven effects on your skin and mental wellbeing to complement our key ingredients.
As natural as possible
The majority of the ingredients we use in our self-care products are natural and plant-based. We choose to use goat’s milk, beeswax and emu oil in our products because we just can’t ignore their nourishing and beneficial properties.
You’ll never find parabens, phthalates or sulfates in any of our products because you deserve to feel good about the ingredients you are applying to your body. Parabens are usually found in personal care products to extend their shelf life, but may lead to negative effects on our bodies and environment. Similarly, phthalates are used in body lotions and hair products to increase the longevity of perfumes. We use essential oils and phthalate-free fragrance oils because studies show that parabens and phthalates may affect your endocrine system.
And sulfates give you that long-lasting lather, but it can cause irritation and dry out your skin. No thanks—we’re all about nourishing, hydrating and protecting our skin here!
Plus, what you may not realize is that a percentage of everything you apply externally to your skin may be absorbed into your bloodstream, so choosing safe ingredients is so incredibly important.
We source our ingredients from only reputable suppliers who share our values. Once we select our ingredients and develop our products, we then improve on their effectiveness through personal use and feedback from our friends and family. It is important that we have unwavering belief in our products before we share them with you.
Ultimately, we want you to know that we care about the efficacy of our ingredients and aim to maximize the holistic benefits of our products and their impact on your overall wellbeing. We not only want you to feel like you are taking care of your body when you're using our products, but to feel like you are doing something for your mental health too.
That’s why we encourage you to make your skincare ritual an act of self-care—to take this time to connect with your body and your mind, and to take care of yourself.

As our business grows, our vision is to lead a sustainable endeavour that gives back to our community—through creating employment opportunities for young adults with special needs, finding ways to reduce our environmental impact and packaging wastes, and spreading our message of self-care. Contributing to our community and to social causes is close to our hearts at Munday.
We are also starting a fundraising program to assist people in raising money for their own social causes. We’re excited that this will be kicking off very soon!
