Conscious Crate is made for those whose lifestyle leans toward compassion and conscious living. Each month we’ll share the best in locally sourced beauty products, hand-picked from cruelty-free, earth-conscious South African Brands.
Inside you’ll find a mix of full size and sample products (dependent on which option you pick) for you to try out and find your favourites and the best bit is, with every box ordered;
R10 will be donated to The Animal Anti-Cruelty League!
So not only do you get a box full of surprise guilt-free goodies delivered to your doorstep, you’re also supporting local brands, promoting cruelty-free beauty and treating yourself the way nature intended.
Our mission is to introduce women all over South Africa to our very own local beauty brands as well as change how they see the beauty industry and how products don’t need to be tested on animals or packed with harmful chemicals to be amazing!
Conscious Crate provides the perfect way to try out products you otherwise normally wouldn't go out and buy yourself or that you might not have even known about with a wonderful element of treating yourself every month without the hassle of picking and choosing what you might or might not like.
We also are using this platform to promote some of South Africa's fantastic local conscious beauty brands and small businesses, by purchasing their products, featuring them in our boxes along with a write-up about the brand and where to buy more.
We didn’t just want to stop there though, so after doing some research we decided to donate R10 from every box ordered to the AACL. So if you pick a 6-month subscription for instance, R60 will be donated! With enough subscribers, we’ve worked out that after some time, we could be contributing a good amount to this amazing organisation on a monthly basis.
At Conscious Crate, we are passionate about animal welfare and uplifting local businesses with the same mentality to a point where they become household names and cruelty-free, natural beauty products become the norm.
We have already partnered with some great businesses for our December Conscious Crate and have many more super excited about getting featured in future boxes!
WHY DO WE NEED YOUR HELP?
- We have such a fantastic following just in the last couple of weeks due to some our social media efforts, but we have zero capital. We started this on a whim and after getting the kind of support we’ve already gotten; we ran with it.
- We have opened pre-orders for our December Crate on our website which will give us the funds to purchase products and packaging as needed for our first boxes, regardless of a number of orders. This is working fairly well but as most of you know, there is far more involved in setting up and running a business.
- The money raised on Jumpstarter will be going towards gorgeous branded boxes and inserts, marketing campaigns, the ability to bulk order from our wonderful brands, space to store and package boxes, various other costs such as setting up a speedy/reliable web connection and we are also considering hiring a talented blogger to do write-ups and even more press for the local brands featured!
- If you would like more detail regarding the funding, please feel free to email us at email@example.com, we’re all about honesty so would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
- By contributing, you also get your very own Conscious Crate, check out our rewards to find out more!
- If you would like to contribute, but don’t really want beauty products, we are more than happy to send yours to a friend or family member as a gift, or donate the cost of the crate directly to the Animal Anti-Cruelty League. It’s up to you.
SO, HOW DOES CONSCIOUS CRATE WORK?
The great thing about Conscious Crate, is all you need to do, is pop over to our website, choose your plan, pay and get your box shipped to you between the 5th and 20th of every month.
We have decided to give the option of three different size boxes to choose from, we have realised that nowadays spending money is not as easy as it used to be, especially in South Africa, so even if you’re on a bit of a budget, or just want to test Conscious Crate out, you have the opportunity to do so.
- The Little Box
- R280 a month
- Packed with 4 – 5 deluxe and normal sample size products and 1 or more vouchers for the featured brands.
- The Mix Box
- R380 a month
- Packed with 2 or more full size products and 2 or more sample size products every month with 1 or more vouchers for the featured brands.
- The Big Box
- R490 a month
- Packed with 4 or 5 full size products, an additional gift or two and 1 or more vouchers for the featured brands.
Currently we have 3 options for subscription length, at a later stage we will have the option to have your payment for your box automatically processed each month but for now, you can either choose a once off, or an upfront 3 or 6-month subscription. The longer you subscribe the more of a discount you get on the total amount of boxes you will receive.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME!
I am so excited about Conscious Crate and strongly believe we have the potential to grow into more than just a subscription beauty box!
I would eventually like to do international shipping to promote our local brands outside of South Africa and show the world what we have to offer.
We are also looking at setting up beauty profiles in the near future to allow subscribers to tell us what their skincare needs are, their favourite colours and styles and whether or not they have any allergies so that we can make sure that everyone gets exactly what they want and need out of Conscious Crate.
Thank you again for taking time out of your day to find out more about Conscious Crate, we would absolutely love to hear your feedback so if you have any questions, ideas or critique, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are so excited for you to join the cruelty-free beauty revolution.

How will my box be shipped to me?
- We will be using the Aramex store to door courier service to keep our shipping costs low to always include them in the price of Conscious Crate and to ensure your box is delivered to you in the safest, fastest way.
How can I get featured if I have a cruelty-free lifestyle or beauty brand?
- We have a contact form on our website, where you can submit your application to be featured directly to us. https://www.consciouscrate.co.za/get-featured
What if I have an allergy or only use strictly vegan products?
- We are more than happy to accommodate you. If you would like to subscribe to Conscious Crate, and have special requirements, simply drop us an email and let us know and we will exclude products you may be allergic to or can’t use due to your lifestyle and replace them with additional items from one of the other brands for the month.
- As mentioned above, at a later stage we will implement a beauty profile option to make sure everyone can be accommodated. J
How do we determine which brands are a good fit?
- We look at the type of ingredients used, their cruelty-free status, the size of the business and whether or not the products are produced in South Africa.
- In regards to the cruelty-free status, we have a lot of smaller, home-based brands we would like to feature who may not have gotten official cruelty-free status due to the size of their business or the fact that they are just starting out, so these will on occasion be the exception to the rule. However, we will always ensure that no products featured in Conscious Crate are tested on animals whatsoever.
How much are the boxes actually worth compared to the price?
- This varies depending on the brands featured for the month but we are working hard to keep it at a higher value than what you are paying for with the exception to the shipping costs involved.
