As the years go on, our skin tends to wrinkle – it’s just a fact of life and it’s not necessarily a bad thing. Many of the lines on our face tell of our experience and our wisdom.

When I was creating my range of skincare products, looking after the health of my customers came first and foremost. So when I thought about what I would use to create healthy skincare, I thought of clean, pesticide and chemical free ingredients, and absolutely no added nasties. And there is no better standard of healthy skincare than certified organic. With September being Australian Organic Awareness Month, I wanted to take a closer look at certified organic skincare and what makes is so special.

The formulation of any certified organic skincare product is based on a blend of organic oils, butters, waxes and extracts. These must come from certified organic origins and make up at least 95% of the formulation. This is what makes certified organic skincare products so good as most commercial skincare products are primarily water and non-active fillers.

Living in the NSW Blue Mountains, I’m surrounded by people who love the outdoors, and nearly everyone you meet is a rock climber.  But there are rock climbers and there are rock climbers, and Amanda Watts has got to be the most impressive female climber I’ve ever met, representing Australia in World Cups and competing at an elite level for over 20 years. Not only does she excel at this sport but she is also a nutritionist and dietitian, helping other sportspeople reach optimum results in their chosen field.

Whether they’re caused by rapid weight gain, pregnancy, or growth spurts, stretch marks are very common. Caused by a tearing of the dermis, they’re considered a type of scar because the composition of the damaged skin in stretch marks is the same in other types of scars.

Though stretch marks are unlikely to fade to an extent where they can’t be seen, there are plenty of natural ways to reduce their visibility and support skin health in the process. Ranging from rosehip oil to lemon juice, there is no shortage of options to choose from. Here are 6 natural ways to help reduce their appearance or prevent them in the first place.

Rosehip Oil
Holding a unique combination of fatty acids, it’s no wonder rosehip oil is a favoured component of many natural skincare products. The ingredient helps to hydrate, protect, lessen inflammation and reduce hyper-pigmentation on the skin. These effects work to lighten stretch marks and scars to reduce their visibility.

Natural skincare is an ever-growing movement, free of toxic ingredients that poorly influence our skin and general health. Luckily, consumers are gifted with plenty of healthier alternatives, containing organic ingredients with anti-inflammatory, rejuvenation, and hydration effects – and this only scratches the surface. Ranging from bearberry to camellia oil, here are 10 natural ingredients to boost the health and glow of your skin.

Though the bearberry plant may be easily recognised by its bright, red berries, the leaves of the plant actually hold the skin-promoting nutrients – most notably the compound Arbutin. This key component is often integrated into skincare products to help brighten the skin by lessening the appearance of age and dark spots. You can find bearberry in our Refining Cleanser and the Men’s After Shave + Moisturiser.

When Founding Editor of The Grace Tales, Georgie Abay, agreed to be a part of our “On Beauty” interview series I was chuffed. I’m a huge fan of Georgie’s writing and her passion for storytelling shines through in the numerous features that fill the website’s pages. Georgie regularly interviews women from around the globe, sharing their journeys through motherhood and recently published her first book, Grace Mothers.

Once deputy editor of Vogue, Georgie left to find balance in her life, raise her daughters and pursue a career outside of print media. Launching The Grace Tales seemed like a bit of risk at the time but Georgie’s hard work and passion ensured its success.

In this interview, we talk to Georgie about her career, her take on beauty and how hard it is to make time for yourself as a working mum.
