Oh, how I love a walk through an Australian rainforest, don’t you?
Who would have thought that plants & trees would make such amazing chemists!
I get lost in the immersion of the shady white-washed flooded gums and rainforest gullies, the fresh clean crisp air and wildlife spotting. But did you know that these native trees and plants are not only incredibly picturesque but also contain powerful botanical ingredients such as extracts, seeds, berries and oils which contain a plethora of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and organic compounds which can work wonders for your skin?
That’s why our natural, vegan, rawbeauty naturally body skin care range is infused with potent wild harvested & organic Australian native extracts.
They offer a vast amount of benefits for our skin, including-
- calming & firming skin with its anti-aging properties
- improving lacklustre complexions
- reducing redness and soothing sensitive skin
- clearing acne, reducing itching and dryness associated with eczema.
