Why We Choose To Use Australian Ingredients

Why We Choose To Use Australian Ingredients

At Sukin, we consider ourselves champions of the A-Beauty movement. There is so much to love about this country, which is why we choose to formulate our natural skin remedies with hand selected Australian flora and fauna. Australian beauty is truly having its moment in the sun, with global brands turning to Australia to seek clean beauty inspiration and to source natural, skin loving ingredients.

Clean beauty is something we’re deeply passionate about. Nature, specifically the Australian landscape, is such a rich source of all that we need to really give back to our skin and maintain its health. By sourcing local, Australian botanicals, we’re empowering you to make a skincare choice that is as effective as it is clean, without having to compromise on either element.

As the rest of the world begins to look to Australia for its beauty cues, we’re celebrating all there is to love about clean, natural, native ingredients. Here are a few of our Sukin favourites.

The Australia Ingredients Your Skin Will Love

Kakadu Plum Extract

Kakadu Plum is a potent source of both Vitamin C and antioxidants, the former boasting the ability to naturally brighten and even out the skin tone and the latter working overtime to protect the skin from damage and environmental stressors. Kakadu Plum extract is also deeply hydrating, restoring moisture to dry, dull skin.

The Sukin Rosehip Range is rich in Kakadu Plum Extract, making the collection ideal for those who wish to restore moisture and vitality to the complexion and reinforce the skin’s natural protective barrier.

Lemon Myrtle

Lemon Myrtle is both antibacterial and antiviral with the natural ability to balance the skin’s natural oil production. It also delivers a fresh, uplifting scent, making it a popular ingredient for those who love aromatherapy.

Given its antibacterial, antiviral and oil balancing qualities, Lemon Myrtle is the perfect natural remedy for those wishing to balance an oily skin type. An overproduction of oil can lead to blocked pores and, in turn, blemishes, so you’ll find Lemon Myrtle at the core of the Sukin Oil Balancing range.

Oil Balancing

Pineapple Extract

Pineapple Extract is a natural, effective exfoliant given its rich enzyme content. Enzymes work to dissolve the dry and dead skin cells that can lead to flaking, congestion and overall dull skin, rather than physically scrubbing them off.

You can reap the benefits of Pineapple Extract in the Sukin Hydrating Facial Masque. The Pineapple found within the masque works to sweep the skin of any dry skin, allowing the masque’s natural hydrating properties to effectively sink into the skin to leave you with a soft, supple, deeply hydrated complexion.
