Carolyn

SweetLife® is Australia’s original and most recognised creator of sugar free products using nature’s finest sugar free alternative sweetness ingredient - xylitol. By being the first to bring the all-natural, health-enhancing xylitol products to the market, we are recognised as the #1 leading Australian distributor of xylitol based products that can help you with quitting sugar. Our products can also positively impact on weight loss, healthy lifestyle choices, diabetes and gluten intolerant symptoms.

When our founder Carolyn Hartz was diagnosed with pre-diabetes, her doctor suggested controlling her blood sugar levels with drugs, but she adamantly refused to take this path. Soon afterwards on a trip to the USA in 2000, she discovered the joys of xylitol and found she could eat sweet things without putting her health at risk. She brought this amazing natural sugar free sweetener back to Australia and began to spread the word.

We started in 2002 and as a family run, 100% Australian owned business, we are passionate about making sure Australians have a healthy alternative to sugar and we are committed to promoting that natural and healthy alternative that will improve our customers’ lifestyles. We help people quit sugar while still enjoying the sweet things in life.

Today, our all natural, sugar free product range includes:

  • Perfect Sweet® Xylitol: A granulated natural sugar free alternative to sugar that also has the benefit of being gluten free.
  • Perfect Sweet Bake Mixes: These allow you to create a wide array of delicious easy home baked cakes with natural ingredients that are also sugar free and gluten free.
  • Spry® Chewing Gum and Spry® Gems Mints: These offer a lolly treat for adults and kids alike, while also having the added benefit of creating amazing oral hygiene. Recommended by dentists worldwide.
  • Xlear® Nasal Sinus Care range (our newest addition): The only natural saline nasal spray with the added benfits of xylitol. 

The cornerstone of our family company SweetLife® is our dedication to providing scientifically researched, nature-based healthy solutions. We ensure we only bring superior products to the market and we work closely with teams of doctors, dental hygienists and scientists who advocate the use of xylitol through clinical research.

  • Weight Loss

    Most of us want to lose weight at some point in our lives, and get fitter. Xylitol products make it much easier for you to whittle down your waistline because the natural sweetener has approximately 75% less carbohydrates and 40% less calories than sugar.

  • Healthy Living

    Xylitol is a perfect sugar free alternative for anyone who wants to lead a healthy lifestyle and feel good every day. It is one of the best presents Mother Nature can give our bodies and can be used in place of sugar and artificial sweeteners.

  • Diabetes

    Xylitol is diabetic friendly. The natural sweetener is metabolized without insulin, thereby creating a lower glycaemic effect. In fact it has a glycaemic index of just 7. Now compare that to sugar, which has a glycaemic index of 65.

  • Gluten Intolerant

    Don’t worry if you follow a gluten-free diet and still want to enjoy cakes, desserts, chewing gum and sweets. Just because you have a sensitivity to gluten doesn’t mean you have to miss out.
