Naturally Better



During our busy and stressful lives, many of us are searching for ways to find a more natural balance. Everyday we can take in toxins and chemicals through our skin. Many of us are now concerned by the high use of chemicals and the conflicting media messages surrounding the body care products that have become a part of our daily lives.

The human skin wraps and protects our bodies, and it has the remarkable ability to absorb skincare products, partially or completely, into the bloodstream. Switching to natural products can help you avoid using harmful chemicals, as many skin problems such as acne, dermatitis, irritations etc can actually disappear once petroleum or synthetic ingredients are no longer applied.

We invite you to try our wide range of natural, quality, affordable products. All our products are carefully formulated from natural plant waxes, plant oils, essential oils from flowers, barks and spices, as well as richly coloured mineral pigments, to naturally provide the care you need and deserve.
