Organic skincare has quickly gotten “under our skin” and we simply can’t get enough of it. It is becoming more and more popular every day and I decided to take a deeper look into some amazing luxurious beauty brands, and the best part, they are all local!
What makes organic skincare so popular and sought after? Beauty fanatics all around the globe have discovered this new trend a few years ago already. The trend emerged in 2015 and is still creating headlines daily. The more people are becoming aware of the effects of free radicals, environmental factors, parabens, silicones, minerals and many more on the skin, the more they are turning towards the earth for their solutions.
I have discovered a few amazing local brands that will leave you breathless.
This beautiful brand is based in Cape Town and started in 2007. Their goal is to produce an affordable, quality natural skincare range and we can see that they are doing just that! They have a wide range of products from hair care, to body care, and even a children’s range! The best part of it is that even though we consider it to be luxurious, it is still affordable. Have a look at their website for stockists and to order your products directly naturalsbeauty.co.za
Everything about this brand is just RIGHT. The mindset, the intention, the branding, and the beautiful end result, an amazing, luxury, natural skincare brand. This
brand screams luxury. They are based in Pretoria. Treat yourself to some “Skinfood” by Fontis and take the first step towards beautiful skin from the inside out. For your new skin routine, have a look at www.fontisskin.co.za
The name says it all! Doesn’t it just make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? Conscious about your skin, and what goes on it, as well as keeping the environment in mind, what more can you ask for? My personal favourite product from this brand is Natural Hair Oil. Every time I put that on my hair, it not only feels amazing, and leaves my hair feeling soft and silky, but I get complimented on how good I smell!
