There is no doubt many of us are focused on eating healthily and being aware of avoiding foods which are detrimental to our health. More and more we are also becoming aware of the importance of avoiding chemicals, not only in our food but also our haircare and skincare. Because of this the Inika Organic Skincare and Cosmetic Range has become an extremely popular range in our store. Inika Organic is committed to certified organic, cruelty-free, halal and vegan values with only sustainably sourced ingredients.
We find Inika’s face moisturisers are extremely popular with quite unique ingredients. The Maca Root Day Creams are interesting formulas. I have written previously about the health benefits of maca root powder, particularly in relation to libido, menopause symptoms and energy. It may be surprising therefore to find maca root has been included in the Inika skin care range. Maca is a powerful ingredient which is believed to assist in increasing collagen production and deter free radical damage. Maca root has been found to be not only high in Vitamin C but also other fatty acids, amino acids and essential minerals. There has also been an early study indicating maca root extract when applied topically to the skin may protect our skin from UV radiation and skin damage (1).
Resveratrol is another product I have written about previously because of its health benefits especially as an antioxidant. Because of these antioxidant qualities, Inika have included Resveratrol in their Resveratrol Night Cream as well as their Resveratrol Eye Cream and Resveratrol Serum. Resveratrol is extracted from grapes and is rich in polyphenols. It is also believed to assist in slowing down the signs of ageing. These antioxidant properties help to neutralise free radicals to retain skin structure and increase collagen production.
Another unique ingredient included in the Inika range is the Australian native plant extract known as Caviar Lime. Because it is abundant in natural AHA’s, Caviar Lime is included in the Inika Exfoliator. AHA’s are water-soluble acids made from sugary fruits which assist in peeling away the surface of our skin so that new skin cells can generate to replace old cells.
Inika also have an extensive range of makeup for face, eyes and lips. Whilst we often wish to embrace natural makeup, sometimes it may be a challenge to find natural cosmetics which perform. Inika Organic has won over 40 awards for product excellence and innovation. They are also the only Natural makeup brand used on Fashion Show runways globally which is a big accolade.
The other challenge also arises when we are confused as to the best colours etc to choose for our skin. If you want advice on your makeup and skincare, our qualified Beauty Therapist, Rosie Gillies is available on Fridays between 10am – 3pm to advise customers on the best choices of makeup and skincare.
