Our five FAV ingredients and what they can do for you!
Australian pink clay
Clay based skin care has been used for hundreds of years as one of the best ways to draw out impurities from the skin. Australian Pink Clay is an excellent choice for providing hydration to your skin whilst helping to improve your skin’s texture, fine lines, redness, and inflammation... And because it’s Australian, duh!
The minerals that give this clay its gorgeous natural pink colour include copper, selenium, manganese magnesium and zinc... It typically has a pH level that is closest to human skin, which means it is perfect for just about every skin type J
Australian Pink Clay is an essential skin care ingredient if you want to reduce irritation and inflammation from those aggravating skin conditions such as acne. Australian Pink Clay is rich in Silica, which may help to improve skin elasticity and cell renewal for supple, younger looking skin (and who doesn’t want that?!)
This superstar ingredient delivers moisture and energy to tired, dull complexions and helps to soothe inflammation whilst lightly exfoliating skin; leaving your skin soft, smooth, refreshed and supple. It can even help to minimise blackheads and promotes a radiant and balanced complexion!
So babes… Australian Pink Clay is an excellent choice for providing hydration to your skin while helping improve your skin’s texture, fine lines and much, much more!

Kaolin clay has been used for centuries to absorb excess oil from the skin, even preventing breakouts before they begin (wait whhhaaatt?!).
For cosmetics and skincare uses, Kaolin Clay has some important detoxifying and stimulating effects. It's perfect for helping to restore skin that's been damaged by frequent outbreaks. Some babes have found that regular use helps to balance their skin’s oil production, reducing oily skin symptoms.
Kaolin Clay becomes a smooth paste when combined with water, and its tiny crystals gently exfoliate and refresh your skin. It’s super fine (and so are you!), which makes Kaolin Clay a fantastic cleanser and detoxifying treatment for your sensitive skin. But don’t you worry, it’s perfect for any skin type, working hard extracting impurities and absorbing excess oils without causing inflammation or redness.
Kaolin Clay can make your skin to appear more toned and tightened (YAS PLS!) by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and improving elasticity and firmness.
So if you want to gently cleanse and exfoliate, reduce oiliness, purify and detoxify, sooth sensitive skin, treat acne, improve elasticity and delaying the signs of aging… Kaolin is your to-go gurl!
𝄞 Do you like Piña Coladas?! 𝄞 OMG We do!! Because Pineapple. Not only is pineapple delicious… this stellar fruit is rich in Vitamins C & E which are the two things you need to pep up your skin when it's looking a bit meh. They’re going to brighten and even out your skin tone whilst being an antioxidant and protecting skin from pollution damage during the day.
Pineapple extracts contain Bromelain, which is a mix of enzymes that helps to gently exfoliate the skin. Bromelain also has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial benefits… Win. Win. Win.
This spikey babe fruit is a total overachiever of an ingredient because on top of all the above, this banger is also a gentle exfoliator! The enzymes found in pineapple can slough away dead skin cells and reduce the appearance of blackheads, which means it’s ideal for anyone struggling with persistent spots... Speaking of blemishes, pineapple is also a natural anti-inflammatory so when unwanted spots do appear, the fruit will help reduce redness and swelling. Basically, it’s the answer to all our skincare dreams.

Goldilocks was onto something when she snuck in and snacked on that oatmeal. But the babe should have smeared that goodness all over her face… oh the things Oats can do!
Where do we start?! Oatmeal can soak up the excess oil on your skin and help treat acne. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties help to treat dry skin and remove dead skin cells. Oats also contain compounds called saponins, which are natural cleansers. They remove the dirt and oil that clog the pores and exfoliate the skin.
Oats can remove the dead skin cells and act as a natural moisturiser. Its anti-inflammatory properties help to keep the skin exfoliated. Oatmeal's mild pH can help to cool down the inflamed skin that may have caused due to some rash or infection, causing dry skin.
Oatmeal contains zinc that is said to reduce inflammation and kill the acne-causing bacterial action. It helps to soak up the excess oil from the skin that may trigger acne. It also helps to declog the pores and gives you a smooth and clear skin.
Inflammation? You bet. Oatmeal helps to normalise your skin's pH levels, which helps to restore your skin's natural pH and soften the dry skin. It also protects the skin from external irritants, by lending moisture to the skin.
Now you already know that Oatmeal's Saponins have intense exfoliating properties. It helps in removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface, and gives you (and Goldilocks) a fresh, glowing and youthful skin.
Oats are a major ingredient in our Enzyme Exfoliating Mask!
