When we’re talking Australian Beauty, the terms ‘clean and natural’ are the no-brainers that come up. This is because the ingredients in our locally-produced goods are of the highest quality standards. Of course, this means they’re naturally potent and work intensively on your skin and hair to nourish and care for them. Apart from a few universal ingredients, our products come packed with local goodness that is honestly, a class apart. Read through for our guide to all of the fabulous skin and hair goodness you’ll find in the products in our A-Beauty box.
Australian Pink Clay
An all-round winner, this deep cleansing beauty ingredient comes from Western Australia and right into the Sand & Sky Porefining Face Mask and Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment. It single-handedly detoxifies and brightens skin, leaving it fresh, clean and all kinds of glowy. Plus, if you’re someone dealing with enlarged pores and excess sebum production, the clay will help draw out all impurities and leave them tighter. Both these products also come with other ingredients that work with the pink clay to improve the texture and health of your skin. Think kakadu plum (another Australian favourite), liquorice, pomegranate, macadamia oil and even rosemary leaf. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be using this glow-boosting ingredient as part of your skincare routine.
Undoubtedly beauty gold, coconut oil is that all-in-one beauty ingredient you definitely want in your routine. It hydrates, soothes and calms the skin while also promoting smoother and shinier hair. What’s not to love? Find it in the La’Bang Body Coconut Hair Mask along with an added boost of health thanks to Moroccan Argan, jojoba and macadamia oils. This beautiful oil is also the hero ingredient in the biodegradable BettyFace Cocobetty Coconut Oil Wipes. Clearly, coconut oil is one of our favourite ingredients. The box also contains the Keeko Vegan Coconut Wax Tooth Floss which is super gentle on your gums thanks to the oil.
Another widely-acclaimed skin and hair moisturiser, this thick butter works brilliantly for dryness. No wonder why it’s a popular ingredient in balms, shower gels, lotions and even hair masks. We’ve got it in the form of African Butter Tea Extract in our Grown Alchemist Tinted Age-Repair Lip Treatment. Combined with tri-peptides, antioxidants and Violet Leaf Extract, this lip treatment hydrates and heals your pout.
Come hot summers or chilly winters, your skin always needs that healthy dose of hydration. Red Algae has the ability to enhance the skin’s barrier function and replenish the skin’s natural hydration levels. You’ll find this ingredient in the Dr Roebuck’s Icebergs Hydrating Mask along with other good-for-skin names. We’re talking hyaluronic acid, cucumber, chamomile and organic aloe vera.
