Skincare Benefits of Powerhouse Aussie Botanicals

The adage "necessity is the mother of invention" aptly describes the way any indigenous culture uses the plants and animals available to them. Of course, Australian aborigines were no different. 

In addition to eating the highly nutritious Australian native Outback fruits, grains, leaves, nuts, and seeds, they utilized these plant parts plus bark and sap to treat illness and maintain health. It is estimated that the first humans to settle the Australian continent arrived about 50,000 years ago. That means that the ingredients in our products have been field tested and used successfully for about that long! There are no synthetic skincare ingredients with a track record as impressive.

Since the indigenous Australians didn't use written language but passed knowledge down through dance and song, there is probably a lot of information about bush (meaning Outback) foods that has been lost. We do have extensive knowledge about the skin care benefits of Australian superfruits, however, and have incorporated that important knowledge in our products.  Some of these bush fruits have only recently been discovered by modern science, and the consensus is "wow"!

My previous post focused on Kakadu Plum skin benefits, so let's look at some of the other native bush plants we use in our chemical free, botanical, skin care formulations.

Lemon Myrtle

Australian Lemon Myrtle essential oil stars in several of our bestselling products. This botanical will do wonders for your skin as it contains lutein, folate, Vitamins A and E, zinc, magnesium and calcium. If oiliness is a problem, use it to reduce the shine without drying it out. It can lighten sun spots and dark patches for more even skin tone—all while leaving your skin smooth and glowing. We pair it with European Lavender for even more potency and a calming counterpoint scent to Lemon Myrtle's exhilarating citrus fragrance. The combination smells absolutely divine! Lemon Myrtle is a deep cleanser too, with natural anti-bacterial properties that keep your skin clean and healthy.

Quandong

Quandong is another anti-oxidant superstar with a concentration of these free radical fighters exceeded only by the Kakadu Plum. Quandong can be considered a natural alpha-hydroxy acid since it works as an anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory. It's also rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and magnesium. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend that you try our products that contain Quandong. Quandong so rarely irritates that it's used in products created solely for infants. We use Quandong in a proprietary fusion with Kakadu Plum and Lilly Pilly for maximum benefits.

Lilly Pilly

Though it might sound like a plant that grows with its flower floating on a surface of a pond, it is actually a versatile hedge/shrub/tree widely used for ornamental landscaping throughout Australia. It's nutrient cocktail is found in its masses of small red berries. Like so many other Aussie "bush" plants, it is chock full of vitamins and minerals that boost immunity and improve skin firmness and radiance. Used in our Ultimate Eye Rescue eye cream it helps lighten under eye circles, smooth crows feet and hydrates the surrounding skin making it look younger, tighter and smoother.

If you are serious about improving your skin this year, you better get going, since it's almost February. If you order now, you can look younger, feel better, and be healthier by March.
