Australian Native Ingredients: The Beauty Multitaskers

Home Grown Beauty Products Made with

Australian Native Flora

Support Australian Made and Owned

Australian native plants have been used for centuries by the Indigenous communities as medicinal remedies, nutritional support and to promote wellbeing and all for good reason. A land of drought, floods, fires and famously known as the land of plenty, our native Australian plants are unique and potent. Over the centuries our remarkable flora has adapted to the extremes of a beautiful but harsh climate, resulting in resilient botanicals bountiful in active Phyto-nutrients ideal for use in skincare and cosmetics.

This week we celebrate just 3 of our favourite hardworking native ingredients that nourish and support the skin, hair and body, providing so many wonderful benefits!

Join us explore the exquisite formulations of Australian-owned independent beauty brands, harnessing the power of native Australian botanicals that bring true efficacy to skincare formulations.

Wattle Seed

One of the most iconic Australian Native flowers, wattle has beautiful golden blooms and its’ unique grey-green foliage is often used to dress the most refined rooms or found adorning the pages of Vogue Living.

Representing the resilience of the Australian spirit, the Wattle and its delicate little flower is known to survive years of drought and raging fires. So it is little surprise that this wonder botanical is brimming with skin loving compounds and used in formulations for its multitasking benefits. It is a great allrounder for great skin health.

Why we love Wattle seed in Skincare

Rich in Gallic acid, a naturally occurring phenolic acid touted for its anti-ageing and protective benefits, Wattle seed helps to build and promote healthy and resilient skin. Phenolic acids are also powerful antioxidants warding off environmental aggressors like pollution and UV damage, while being non-comedogenic, meaning they won’t clog your pores – perfect for acne prone skin.

Wattle seed purifies and cleanses the skin for clear even complexions while the Phenolic acid works in unison with other key ingredients to boost the moist levels in the skin. This can be experienced first-hand when using the Wattle Seed extract rich La Fervance Eclat Extraordinaire.

Australian owned skincare brand LA FERVANCE brings science and nature to the forefront with this clinically proven multi-functional balm. If you are looking for a decadent anti-ageing balm that delivers on its skin firming and skin calming promises than this is it.  Used daily Eclat Extraordinaire revives and restores the complexion. Used as an overnight mask thrice weekly to awake with even calm and plump skin or apply as a hydrating treatment before an event, to plump and reduce fine lines and revitalise the complexion.  

Kakadu Plum 

The Kakadu Plum is a fruit bearing tree prolific throughout the Northern parts of Australia and used by Indigenous communities for its nutritional and antiseptic benefits. It’s a natural healer, hydrator, and the world’s richest source of Vitamin C!

Why we love Kakadu Plum in Skincare

Kakadu plum contains more than 50 times the Vitamin C of oranges giving this super-fruit an incredible ability to repair and regenerate damaged skin and hair cells by stimulating collagen synthesis and assisting in antioxidant protection against UV damage.

Boasting more than 13 times the antioxidants of blueberries, Kakadu Plum is your anti-ageing bestie.  Antioxidants help to neutralise unstable molecules known as free radicals that cause oxidative stress to both skin and hair cells resulting in premature ageing that appears as fine lines and wrinkles and age spots.

Kakadu Plum is beneficial in treating pigmentation and redness due to the presence of ellagic acid, which has been proven to reduce inflammation in the skin. Ideal in your daily skincare regime to treat and protect the complexion, while the hydrating benefits of Kakadu Plum leave the skin supple and firm.

We especially love the self-tanning product line by Wot Not Naturals for inducing a healthy summer glow without the UV damage! The Wot Not Tanning Water Mist is super easy to use and leaves the skin hydrated and plump. Best of all, the spray mist evenly dispenses just the right amount of product without staining the hands. For a rich golden glow without the drying effects of synthetic self-tanning formulations, Wot Not Naturals glides on easily leaving skin hydrated and protected with a deep natural looking tan.

Looking for a daily anti-ageing skin saver The Jojoba Company’s Ultimate Serum is a lightweight serum formulated with Kakadu Plum and two weights of Hyaluronic acid, to deeply hydrate and boost collagen production. This miracle serum is clinically proven to increase skin firmness and decrease frown lines and if that’s not enough…… it’s 100% natural Australian made and owned.

Australian Wadi-Wadi Jojoba

Jojoba is the only plant known to store liquid wax in its seeds. It is widely used in natural skincare as it is well tolerated by all skin types due to its unique molecular structure – it is very similar to that of healthy human skin. If you love Jojoba oil, Australian Wadi-Wadi Jojoba is a must!

Why we love Australian Wadi-Wadi Jojoba

Noted for having higher levels of Omega 9 and 6 compared to other Jojoba Oil, the Australian Wadi-Wadi Jojoba is an excellent all-rounder that is readily adsorbed by the skin restoring the skin’s natural pH level.

High in antioxidants, vitamins A, B, D, and E this amazing active can be used to smooth and revive the skin, hair and nails, while calming skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema. The Jojoba Company promotes Australian Wadi-Wadi Jojoba as their hero product due to its effectiveness and unique healing properties.
