Caring about the environment and urging for a change is often considered as something that can be done on a global scale instead of it being perceived from a personal point of view. But in fact, it’s really simple: if you truly are concerned about it, you can make a difference. I’m sure you’ve heard of the quote by now “Be the change you want to see in the world.” – Use this as your inspiration and you’d be doing your share of eco care.
In case you don’t know how to go about it, a mere change in your skincare routine is enough for you to start with sustainability. And you can start doing so by ditching the chemical-based conventional cosmetics and replacing them with clean beauty. If you don’t know much about this kind of beauty or how to implement it in your daily life, the amazing Kora skincare range infused with skin-loving ingredients is a great place to start.
I’m guessing you’re wondering why exactly should you invest in this specific brand out of a world of brands, and the answer is simple: It’s an award-winning certified organic skincare (Ecocert/Cosmos certified to be exact!) that’s created to nourish and revitalise your skin. But that’ not all. Kora can positively affect your mind and soul too. Their philosophy is derived from holistic skincare to get you to increased self-care and mindfulness.
These are the aspects creator and supermodel Miranda Kerr stands by firmly, so much so she works with lab and organic chemists herself, participating in the creation of the products every step of the way. If you still need convincing, take a good look at her and her complexion with a healthy glow as a result of using her own products and you’d get the proof on the efficacy of the cosmetics.
Besides her career in modelling, she’s also had an interest in healthy living. Knowing the skin is the largest organ that protects us, maintains our immune system working 24/7 and as such soaks up whatever you put on it, she’s been searching for cosmetics that allow it to function to the fullest. After not being able to find such skincare that makes a difference in the beauty inside and out, she decided to venture into the industry herself.
Ever since the beginnings back in 2009 before the clean beauty craze became a trend globally, the brand has marked a huge success not only in Australia but worldwide too, given that the Kora organic beauty products are now available in 25 countries. Add to this the many international awards they’ve received over the years, and you’ve got a premium skincare brand.
What Are the Kora Organics Ingredients?
The reasons for the success of this beauty brand lies in the strict organic guidelines they follow as well as the organic ingredients that are sourced from farms with a sustainable and ethical approach without using any pesticides or herbicides. A good example of this is the noni fruit packed with antioxidants which is one of the main components of the brand’s range of facial masks, oils, serums, lotions, cleansers, moisturisers and exfoliators.
Noni has been Miranda’s favourite ever since she implemented it as a juice in her diet as an early teen. Other ingredients include organic lavender, the anti-inflammatory rosehip oil, chamomile, lemon, green tea, sea buckthorn, aloe vera, and jojoba.
In addition, since the supermodel swears by her rose quartz crystals and uses them in her skin routine, during meditation and keeps them under her pillow while sleeping, the Kora skincare is also enriched with them. They’re believed to offer soothing energy, so you get products that have the vibration of love infused in them to add a little magic in your daily life.
The ingredients you can’t expect to have in this top-notch skincare brand are synthetic fragrances, synthetic colours, parabens, sulphates, glycols, silicones, ethoxylate, formaldehyde, T.E.A and D.E.A.
Besides being good for your skin and health, Miranda is proud to say her beauty care is also good for the planet as it’s vegan and cruelty-free. In other words, apart from beating the effects of free radicals that lead to premature ageing, her products protect the environment through eco-friendly and sustainable farming, and animals by not testing on them. You can guess this by the P.E.T.A logo.
What Are the Products That Are Part of Kerr’s Routine?
Since the supermodel and entrepreneur is into leading a healthy lifestyle that does her skin and well-being good, she uses the Kora organics products herself. Though she likes all of what her company makes and sells, she has her own favourites that she uses in her day to day pampering. Here are some of them:
Based on a soap-free gentle formula, it’s created for oily to combination skin and helps to naturally clean the skin of impurities without stripping its natural oils or impacting the natural pH balance. Some of the ingredients it contains are the famous noni extract, sandalwood, aloe vera and green tea, the perfect combination to thoroughly clean the skin while leaving it fresh. It’s the ideal product that Miranda loves to use both during her morning and night skincare routines.
Energising Citrus Mist
This is a great addition to any routine because it’s ideal for toning after cleaning the skin. As its name suggests, it’s energising thanks to ingredients like lemongrass, mandarin, aloe vera and noni, and as such it gives a healthy glow. Feel free to use it before day and night creams.
Noni Glow Face Oil
As a combination of sea buckthorn, pomegranate, rosehip oils and noni, this product from the Kora skincare range is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids that help nourish, smooth and brighten the skin. You can add it over the face, neck and décolletage right after cleansing or in a combination with moisturisers.
to hydrate dry or dull skin, the moisturiser consists of macadamia nut oil, rosehip oil, noni fruit and licorice extract along with sodium hyaluronate and hyaluronic acid that are ideal for softening and boosting hydration. It’s perfect to add after cleansers and mists.
Turmeric Brightening and Exfoliating Mask
Created to help revitalise, brighten and promote skin cell renewal, this mask contains certified organic turmeric, papaya enzymes, rosehip seeds, aspen bark and peppermint which together refine tone and texture, giving off a glowing and healthy skin outcome. As a 2-in-1 formula, it’s great for exfoliating, brightening and resurfacing the skin, removing UV stress effects as well as pollution. Thanks to the ingredients, it’s even ideal for people with irritated and sensitive skin.
Noni Glow Sleeping Mask
If you want to nourish the skin as you sleep, this is the solution. Due to its ingredients, including organic coconut milk, caviar lime, silver ear mushroom, and Kakadu plum extracts, it’s full of antioxidants that provide hydration, soothing for redness, smoothing for fine lines and wrinkles so you can wake up with fresh skin with a more youthful appearance in the morning. Now that’s what’s called beauty sleep!
