Organic Facial Skin Care

Organic Facial Skin Care

The Rejuvenate range is designed for those women like ourselves, who have mature or dry skin. We spent a long time deciding on the very purest and most effective ingredients for our "women of wisdom". This range is jam packed with nourishing, replenishing ingredients and we have been thrilled with the results we have experienced ourselves. So what are these ingredients?

  • Eco Cert (France) approved olive emulse wax, gentle and plant based
  • Pure organic carrier oils – camellia, jojoba, evening primrose oil and rosehip, all chosen for their skin nurturing properties
  • Pure organic hydrosols – the pure fragrant water from the distillation of essential oils Rose and Roman chamomile, skin loving and heart nourishing
  • Organic plant extracts which are anti ageing, strengthening, elasticising, and anti oxidant – Ginseng,    Gotu Kola, Gingko biloba, Olive leaf and Rice
  • Soothing emollients & cleansers – organic shea butter, olive squalane, Lamesoft (coco glucoside & glyceryl oleate), sucrose fatty acid esters, hydrolyzed oat protein and yucca extract to enhance cleansing and to support the lipid layer of skin, keeping it supple. We use no harsh or foaming surfactants. 
  • Vitamins A (elasticity and age lines), B (moisturising and soothing), C (anti ageing, soothing and protective), & E ( soothing, healing, regenerating)
  • CoEnzymeQ10 – anti oxidant which protects the cell membrane against environmental damage caused by free radicals , thus helping to prevent wrinkles and sagging
  • Bush Flower essences selected especially to balance and nurture the feminine
  • Plant based gelling agents hydroxypropyl starch phosphate & dehydroxanthan gum

Our natural preservative system is something we are pleased with as we can avoid the dangers associated with many other systems for preserving the quality of products.

Ubtan Herbal Powder Cleansers

Ubtan Herbal Powder Cleansers

These cleansers have evolved through our interest in both ancient Aryurvedic beauty care and Western herbs and essential oils. Ubtan are carefully blended for the different Aryurvedic skin types from very finely ground organic grains with herbs, flowers, spices and essential oils. When mixed to a paste with appropriate liquids, they resemble very fine scrubs, suitable for daily use. Each cleanser comes packaged in a PET fully recyclable plastic jar with an instruction pamphlet.

There are 3 types - Ubtan Vata (normal to dry skin), Ubtan Pitta (blemished or troubled skin including acne) and Ubtan Kapha (normal to oily or sluggish skin which may have large pores).

Hydrosols & Mists

Hydrosols & Mists

Both these are lovely toning sprays to use after cleansing and also to freshen up in hot or dry weather. Many people ask what is the difference?

Hydrosols are watery by-products of the steam distillation process used to extract pure essential oils. They are very pure - can actually be ingested safely - and contain some of the essential oil extracted. Our hydrosols are Certified Organic.

Moisturisers

Moisturisers

Hidden Valley make 3 different classic moisturising creams which are lovely but inexpensive. These are Avocado Cream (the best for dry skin), Rose Cream (normal to dry) and Almond & Calendula (normal or troubled). We have offered these for many years. They contain lovely carrier oils and essential oils, and use a vegetable derived safe emulsifying wax which we make ourselves from a special recipe, to join the oil and water phases together. The preservative used in these is reliable Phenonip, which does contain paraben preservatives. If you have any concerns about this, either choose one of our other options below, or phone for more information.

For those who really want no synthetic additives whatsoever (that is, in the main, no emulsifiers or preservatives) we offer 4 different Precious Facial Oils in 50ml glass bottles. These are mixtures of beautiful cold pressed base oils with Vitamin E and pure essential oils. We offer Vata (normal to dry skin), matching our Ubtan Vata cleanser, Pitta (blemished/troubled skin) matching our Ubtan Pitta cleanser. Also, we offer Precious Facial Oil for Succulent Women of Wisdom (mature skin) and Rose Hip Regenerative Oil Blend, which is wonderful for cell regeneration to treat scarring or just facial wrinkles.

Precious Facial Oils

Precious Facial Oils

Our precious facial oils replace moisturisers for those who want nothing but beautiful pure cold pressed plant oils, essential oils and Vitamin E on their faces. They come in 50 ml glass bottles with dripolators. Because these are waterless products, they do not require preservatives or emulsifiers.

Always apply to damp face after cleansing with an ubtan paste and toning with a hydrosol or mist. In effect, you make an emulsion on your face by adding oil to the water already present, locking in that moisture. You only need a few drops of precious oil, so these last a long time.

Lip Balms

Lip Balms

Our luscious lip products come in both 15 ml glass pots, which last a very long time, or in convenient lipsticks. After having some problems with graininess developing over time in our shea butter lip balms, we have now deleted shea from them all, substituting mango butter and other lovely emollients.

Baby & Mother Products

Baby & Mother Products

We take special care to produce extremely safe products for babies and pregnant or breastfeeding mothers - when in doubt we always take a conservative view, choosing only ingredients which are completely harmless. Ingredients are also organic where possible.

The Bonny Bum ointment is extremely popular with Broome mothers to avoid and treat nappy rash. It is also an ideal soother for Mum's post partum tender areas. We take care to infuse organic herbs in organic olive oil over time and add safe anti-oxidants and low dosages of appropriate essential oils.
