We are often asked what makes our Scrub so special. So we thought we would share a little bit of our Why
The OrganiQ Scrub was created to solve a problem. The founder wanted a luxury skincare product that would not just suit her sensitive skin, but improve it.
Every ingredient needed to have a purpose, and the formula must contain ingredients pure enough to eat. Your skin is your largest organ - it actually breathes and absorbs what you put on it.
Would you put something on your skin that you wouldn’t feel safe eating?
The founder grew up on Kangaroo Island - one of the most pristine environments in the world so it made sense to source as many ingredients as possible direct from the land and ocean.
OrganiQ scrubs are designed for daily use and are safe for even the most sensitive skin. You don’t even need to moisturise after.
Unlike a lot of brands on the market we only use one oil, because we like to keep things simple and pure and reduce our impact on the environment.
Everything else is either Australian grown, farmed or imported from sustainable suppliers, such as:
Primarily composed of saturated fats, CO is great for repairing your skin’s natural barrier and trapping in moisture. Plus, it’s naturally antimicrobial which means it will kill off any surface bacteria you may have picked up during the day.
Sugar is a natural humectant which draws moisture from the environment into the skin. This helps hydrate your skin and keep moisture within. Secondly, sugar is a natural source of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that penetrates the skin and breaks down the "glue" that bonds skin cells, encouraging cell turnover and generating fresher, younger-looking skin.
Our Salt is hand harvested from the pristine coastline of Kangaroo Island. Sea salt has up to 82 essential trace nutrients and has a higher PH than himalayan salt.
Then we add delicious ingredients from the Island such as pure Ligurian Bee Honey and Melaleuca Eucalyptus Oil.
Our mission is to Create a cycle of value from the earth to the skin, from the producer to the consumer.
It is our pledge to not just empower beauty but lives and have build a brand that can scale locally. Keeping employment and profit in SA. It is our mission to show that everyone has value and will work closely with organisations in disability and women in crisis to ensure that we can provide opportunities for those who would not otherwise.
To date we have not sought external funding because we believe in building from the ground up. It has made the process longer, but we have learned so much that we would not have otherwise.
You can find our products in Foodland and the Adelaide Central markets, and I encourage you to give them a go - there is something for everyone Men, Babies, Women and every skin type. Trust me, once you try the Honey Scrub you will understand why OrganiQ is Natural Skincare - Pure enough to Eat.
