What Makes Sukin a Reliable Brand – Australian skincare has gained popularity worldwide and is often considered to be of high quality. Several factors contribute to the perception of Australian skincare as being effective and beneficial. These include the use of natural ingredients sourced from the country’s diverse landscape as many of these ingredients are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that can nourish and rejuvenate the skin.
They are also known for their sustainability, ethical practices, and eco-friendly formulations as well as their strong focus on research and innovation.
With this in mind, Women Talking looks at the Australian brand Sukin, a brand that offers a perfect balance of naturalness and affordability and try a selection of products ranging from their Botanical Body Wash to their Illuminating Eye Gel.
Company values are important too:
Sukin is Leaping Bunny Approved by Cruelty-Free International, committed to creating products that are free from all animal testing and has been dedicated to cruelty-free practices and products from day one. Their manufacturing and testing processes are completely free from animal testing, and they only source from suppliers who do not test on animals.
Sukin is a 100% Vegan brand. This means they do not use any animal derivatives, of any kind in their products. This includes things like lanolin, as well as animal by-products like honey and beeswax.
Aroma: Bergamot has a refreshing, citrusy scent that is known to have mood-enhancing properties. Its pleasant aroma can uplift the senses and provide a soothing experience during skincare routines. It also has natural antiseptic properties, making it useful in cleansing and disinfecting the skin. It can help prevent infections and reduce the risk of breakouts.
Astringent: Bergamot oil can act as an astringent, helping to tighten and tone the skin. This can be particularly beneficial for oily or combination skin types.
Fragrance: Patchouli has a distinct, earthy, and slightly sweet scent that many people find appealing. It’s often used in aromatherapy for relaxation and stress relief. Patchouli oil is also believed to have skin-balancing properties, making it suitable for both dry and oily skin types.
Anti-Inflammatory: Patchouli is sometimes used for its potential anti-inflammatory properties. It might help calm irritated skin and reduce redness.
The Body Wash cleanses and stimulates the skin leaving it clean and fresh. Jojoba, Avocado and Rosehip Oils are combined to purify, hydrate, and soften the skin while cleansing. With calming Aloe Vera, skin is left feeling soothed and lightly hydrated.
The Body Lotion is a nourishing combination of Rosehip, Avocado and Jojoba Oils, along with Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter to hydrate and smooth skin. An infusion of Aloe Vera, Nettle, Horsetail and Burdock restores the skin’s moisture barrier and helps to nourish dry skin.
Certified Organic Rosehip Oil – Just like liquid gold! Their Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is their holy grail, multi-use product! It contains no less than 70% essential fatty acids (amazing for maintaining the healthy building blocks of the skin) and has vitamins to help soothe, soften, and hydrate the skin. These nourishing properties help to reduce the appearance of scars and combat the signs of ageing.
This unique oil feeds the skin nutrients and can be used regularly to help relieve redness due to dry/itchy skin and help maintain optimal skin health. It is also perfect for dehydrated, mature skin types as well as skin types with scarring.
How to Use – Apply 2-3 drops to the palm of your hand. Use fingers to massage into cleansed face, neck and/or body morning and night, or as desired. This fast-absorbing oil leaves your skin looking and feeling radiant and healthy.
Illuminating Eye Gel – A wonderful product to refresh and illuminate the eye area. Formulated with Green coffee and Kakadu Plum it helps to reduce the appearance of dark circles and brighten the eye area.
How to Use – Use the tip of the tube to gently apply to the eye area, and glide from under the eye toward the outer corner and across the brow bone. Gently pat around the eye area using a ring finger.
