Naturally Good Skincare
Go with natural and organic products where possible.
What you put on your skin is absorbed by the body - if you read through the ingredients and you can't pronounce most of the ingredients, let alone know what they are, do you really want to layer it all over your skin?
Antipodes has no artificial colours or fragrances, no mineral oils, no petrochemicals, and they don't test on animals. Natural ingredients in their products include New Zealand’s world-famous manuka, totara, kowhai and mamaku black fern, avocado oil, deeply moisturising Australian macadamia nut oil and China's Reishi mushroom of immortality. I use their Grace Gentle Cleanser and Rejoice Light Day cream (smells like sweet almond, delicious!)
The Jojoba Company use 100% natural Australian jojoba oil, in addition to Quandong and Kakadu plum extracts to nourish and moisturise skin. Like Antipodes, their products are gentle, naturally derived and smell divine. The Jojoba Company was founded in 2008 by Ian Turner, who planted his first crop of jojoba on the family estate in New South Wales.
I added to my haul of BB and CC creams with the latest Jojoba Company cleansing product, The EE Cream (a jojoba oil-based exfoliant that isn't harsh and drying!)
