In recent years, beauty fans have become increasingly aware of the ethical and health benefits of vegan, natural and plant-based skincare products. Despite the fact that people are learning more about the kinds of chemicals that come into contact with their skin, however, a number of harmful misconceptions about plant-based products have started to circulate.
Fortunately, we have made it our business to debunk these myths for you.
Myth # 1: DIY face products work just as well as commercial plant-based versions
Whilst DIY skincare is an admirable pursuit, it is very difficult to come up with a formula as effective as those found on the shelves. Indeed, the ingredients found in your kitchen are not really comparable to the active ingredients found in the formulas lovingly created by natural skincare companies.
Myth # 2: Natural products do not work as well
Many people feel safe buying products that feature lots of stringent chemicals. Whilst you may feel that they offer instant results, however, they usually only offer short-term solutions and can be harmful to your skin in the long term. Natural products are filled with healthy nutrients and minerals that will gently brighten your complexion and leave you feeling fantastic.
Myth # 3: Natural skincare products are easy to spot
Some questionable beauty companies sell their products as natural or plant-based whilst still injecting them with harmful pesticides. To ensure that your products are genuinely plant-based it is a good idea to shop with a trusted company like us!
Myth # 4: Products need to be filled with preservatives in order to prevent bacteria build-up
Whilst water-based products do need a small number of preservatives to prevent bacteria from growing, oil-based products do not.
Myth # 5: You can achieve perfect skin by following a healthy diet
It is indeed true that what you put in your body can affect your outer appearance, diet alone is not always enough to achieve the skin of your dreams. As you’re probably well aware, food cannot help to remove dirt or dead skin like a face scrub.
Myth # 6: Plant-based products are too expensive
This could not be further from the truth. Whilst they may be a little more expensive than the cheapest products on the market, plant-based beauty is usually very affordable.

For first blog for the year and I wanted to keep it fun and summer themed. As the weather has shockingly been turning it on here in Newy over the last week (La Niña who???), indoor activities are out and sunshine, and outdoor fun and in!
However as much as we try our hardest to SLIP, SLOP, SLAP! We can never be too careful with our skin, especially here in Australia with that bloody great big hole in the ozone layer.
Enter Vitamin E.
Vitamin E is a tried and true ingredient in body and face moisturisers and there’s a good reason for that. It works. We traditionally know vitamin E as a treatment for scars, skin discolourations and anti-aging but did you know that it helps prevent and heal sunburn? Here are some Vitamin E tidbits to solidify why it really is the queen of ‘must have’ skin care ingredients.
