Wildcrafted organic Australian botanicals and other extraordinary nutraceuticals from around the globe provide us with the ideal natural ingredients for skin care without the concerns of synthetic oestrogen compounds or toxic chemicals found in most commercial products.
You should carefully consider what you put on your skin as absorption into the body does occur. Essentially, it is said that you shouldn’t put on your body what you cannot eat.
Testing by Southern Cross University has revealed the incredible capacity of the bio-active compounds of many Australian Natives. It is believed that the extreme nature of the climate in some parts of Australia are responsible for producing potent levels of these bio-active compounds useful for skin care, hair care, anti-ageing and skin lightening products. These bio-actives vary from antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and photo protection properties as well as skin conditioning and hydrating agents to attain results, previously thought only achievable with synthetic ingredients.
Nature in New Zealand and the Amazon has also supplied us with the power of Manuka and the highly potent antioxidants that exist in Camu Camu. Sea buckthorn, originally thought to come from the Himalayas has been documented as a treatment since 5000BC for all sorts of ailments, contains phenols and glycosides, Vitamins A, E and Omegas 3, 6, 9 and 7.

We do not hold any single range of skin care products as we believe what works for one person may not work for another. We also do not stock commercial products because we have yet to find one that doesn’t contains harmful ingredients. We use those created by nutritionists and naturopaths who hold a passion for health and the incredible powers of nature in their skin rejuvenation products.
