Most of the time, we avoid artificial colours, additives, preservatives and stabilisers in our food, but when it comes to beauty products, we tend to overlook the (chemical) ingredients that are added into them. So, why cover your face with unnatural substances?
Harness the power of Mother Nature instead with these new and highly effective natural skincare products:
The Water Cream by Tatcha
Japanese wild rose tightens pores and smoothes skin texture while an anti-aging combo of green tea, rice and algae restores a radiant glow.

Complete Cleanser by Pure Lano
This two-in-one makeup remover and cleanser has a natural, alcohol free base topped up with Tea Tree and Rosemary Leaf essential oils. Combining the unique disinfecting and soothing properties of these two natural antiseptics with the ultra pure medical grade lanolin creates a protective barrier to provide the most sensitive skin with long lasting hydration from within.
