  • Irene got into her skincare business after realising that even something as commonly used as baby oil contains chemicals and looked at using olive oil as an alternative.
  • She and her husband decided to create their own Australian skincare line using Australian plants that are sustainably sourced in their ingredients and their packaging.

  • Kadee Botanicals are clean cosmetic, cruelty-free, vegan products, toxin-free and free from harm.
  • Happiness is having about good health and people around you.
  • Irene’s routine is to start with a glass of water and have a look at the weather
  • The sound of children laughing, seeing the light switch on in peoples eyes as she teaches people and hearing good news are things that bring Irene joy.
  • Her last meal would include dark chocolate and any of her Grandmother’s cooking
  • Irene’s non-negotiable is spending time with their kids
  • Paying attention to words, actions and having awareness is the best thing people can do for their health.
  • The top people that have influenced and shaped Irene’s life have been her grandmother, people who have a resilient attitude
  • The things that make Irene laugh are spending time with her sisters and stand up comedy in Netflix.
  • Irene’s gratitude practice is involving that more as a family and listing three things they are grateful for.
