It was a passion of ours to incorporate ingredients in our organic range that were Native to Australia to try and showcase the richness of the land while also allowing us to support our local farms as well. This also helped us to be able to give you guys the absolute best and most authentic extracts for your skin, as they haven't travelled far to get to you - really locking in all the antioxidants and vitamins for a truly healthy, glowing complexion.
for vitamin c, collagen, radiance, elasticity & reduction in pigmentation
This amazing extract is currently the worlds highest natural source of Vitamin C and is Native to Australia. As it is extremely high in Vitamin C, it also means that it is a powerhouse when it comes to collagen production as it's pretty much the building block for this essential protein. As it stimulates our natural collagen, it helps our skin to become more youthful, plump, supple and all around glowing. Vitamin C also has the power to significantly reduce pigmentation, which can also help our skin to look more youthful.
for antioxidants, protein, a natural antihistamine & a reduction in fine lines
This beautiful fruit is also known as "Native Peach" and is extremely high in vitamin C, second to that of the kakadu plum. It has been traditionally used in the Aboriginal culture as an incredible food source as it's so rich in nutrients while also being used for its medicinal qualities - helping to heal wounds and skin disorders.
It also contains Vitamin E, folate, magnesium and is super high in antioxidants. It contains one antioxidant in particular called rutin, which works synergistically with Vitamin C, which helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It also has high amounts of proteins which help to strengthen and repair the skin. It is also a natural antihistamine, which helps reduce irritation and redness of the skin.
Our quandong berry was sourced from the Southern regions of Australia and can be found in our multivitamin crème.
for essential fatty acids (3, 6, 7 & 9), moisture, softness & antioxidants
Macadamia oil is so beneficial for the skin as it has an abundance of essential fatty acids, which are vital for our skins function and appearance. As our skin doesn't make these acids on it's own, it needs all the help it can get, which is why this oil is so amazing. It also has a consistency much like the skins own sebum which allows it to penetrate the skin deeper and more effectively. It has the ability to give our skin ample amount of moisture, while also locking it in so it stays hydrated and supple for longer. As it has a very low comedogenic rating and contains an omega 6 called linoleic acid, it helps to naturally balance out oily skin and won't clog the pores which makes it a perfect fit for those with acne prone skin.
Along with sourcing ingredients from the land, we also wanted to create products that were created here in Australia and were so thrilled when we found a small company in Byron Bay to bring our dreams to life. This way we could support another small business and also keep the quality impeccably high. We also designed the labels ourselves and got them produced by another small business in New South Wales who we were so happy to find.
We also source our packaging materials from a small company in Melbourne who creates everything in house and is all usually made to order.
As we continue our small business journey, we're always going to have this approach of keeping everything as close to home as possible to remain as authentic and genuine as can be.
