The natural skincare ingredients we want YOU to know (and love)

 Why natural skincare? Why not more like it!

We’ve taken all the things you can’t get enough of when it comes to quality skincare (we’re talking active ingredients, expert formulations and glowing skin) and taken out the oh so unnecessary things (like confusing ingredients and gross nasties).

Getting started with any skincare routine can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially if you’ve never used professional products before. Thankfully, we’re here to help every step of the way!

It’s time to click your heels and follow us down the natural skincare road as we reveal some of our favourite ingredients, why your skin is going to LOVE them and what The Facial Co. Skincare products you’ll find them in.

The ultimate all-rounder – Kakadu Plum
When you think of Vitamin C, we bet a picture of an orange came right mind, right? Well, we’re here to tell you that it’s got some stiff competition! Derived in the incredible northern Australian outback, Kakadu Plum features the highest source of Vitamin C going around.

Used for generations by indigenous communities for healing, Kakadu Plum is now a hero in many natural skincare products thanks to its skin brightening, anti-ageing and antioxidant benefits.

Kakadu Plum stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which as we know, is the key to reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Thanks to its rich Vitamin C properties, Kakadu Plum is works wonders for reducing the appearance of pigmentation and scarring.

Just when you couldn’t be impressed any longer, Kakadu Plum is packed with antioxidants to fight off free radical damage caused by environment stressors like pollution and UV exposure. Ultraproductive, this botanical powerhouse also works to reduce inflammation and redness. Winner!

Find Kakadu Plum in our Summer Rain Hydrating Mist. Infused with a cocktail of Australian tropical fruits, Summer Rain put your best face forward.

These nutrients mean business – Sea Buckthorn

This tiny berry seriously packs a punch when it comes to vitamin and mineral benefits! Sea Buckthorn boasts 60 (yep!) antioxidants and 20 minerals (whoa) to give your skin some serious glow.

Sea Buckthorn features all the omegas including omega 3, 6, 7 and 9. These essential fatty acids are brilliant anti-inflammatories and work to repair damaged skin and soothe irritation.

In addition to these omegas, Sea Buckthorn is full of antioxidants such as Vitamin B, K, C, A and E known for their ability to cover all bases! These vitamins will boost collagen production, diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, heal blemishes, enhance skin texture and deeply hydrate.

Find Sea Buckthorn in our divine Golden Hour Glow face oil. Supercharged with an abundance of vitamins, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, Golden Hour Glow leaves skin feeling balanced, protected and luminous like the nurturing golden hour sky.

A divine detox – Kaolin Clay 

Kaolin Clay is the gentlest clay you will find for your complexion. Unlike some of its clay cousins, Kaolin Clay does not have a drying effect on your skin which makes it ideal for those experiencing dry or sensitive skin types. It won’t leave your skin feeling dry and irritated but instead, detoxed and calm.

Another bonus is Kaolin Clay doesn’t strip your skin of natural oils but works wonders at cleaning and detoxing your pores! Breakout-prone skin types will love this clay to effectively remove dirt, pollution and bacteria without all the aggravation they’ve experienced from stripping products before.

Kaolin Clay works its magic in our Coconut Smoothie Mask. An enzyme-based mask, Coconut Smoothie has a no harsh scrubbing policy! Enjoy a 10-minute insta scroll whilst fruit enzymes gently dissolve dead skin cells and draw out impurities.

The calmer – Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is bursting at the seams with nutritional benefits! Crafted with an amazing combination of vitamins and antioxidants, Avocado Oil is known for nourishing, regenerating and rebuilding the skin.

One of the hero features of Avocado Oil is its essential fatty acid content which works wonders to restore, hydrate and calm the skin. It acts as a humectant which means it helps to retain your skin’s moisture.

Vitamins A, B, D, and E all feature in Avocado Oil and support redness reduction, management of acne, boosting collagen production and addressing irritation.

That’s why it features in our incredible Orange Crush Cleansing Oil, an invigorating cleansing oil for clean, soft and oh so sweet-smelling skin.
