I have been exploring a lot of new products which are gentle on skin and safe for the entire family. I am not the one who will flood her bathroom shelf with 10 different ranges just because one has got a nice packaging or other one has the nice fragrance. For me they should not be harsh on my skin , natural and safe for kids too.
I got this beautiful range of natural products from Olive Oil Skincare company; these products are exclusively distributed in Singapore by Kerygo, which is founded by a local mumpreneur, YY.We all know the health benefits of Olive oil, it is rich in many vitamins, including vitamins A and E. It also contains polyphenols which are vital for the maintenance of healthy skin – improves skin flexibility , have excellent anti-ageing properties, act as antioxidants and hydrate well.
A little bit about this Olive oil skin care company-
The Olive Oil Skin Care Company is committed to making quality 100% Australian products to naturally nourish the skin and hair. We are deeply passionate about the health benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil for the body – both inside and out!
Conditions such as eczema and psoriasis are common today, with up to one in every four Australians suffering symptoms. The additives commonly used in commercial soaps can aggravate such ailments. Our all-natural products contain no palm oil, sodium laurel sulphates (SLS), parabens, artificial fragrances or agents of any kind, and are suitable for all skin types and conditions.
In 2000, our family imported a variety of olive trees from Umbria. We propagated and planted the ‘Mother Trees’ in the rich soil of the Australian Riverina and today have five different species of olives, with 110,000 trees at our farm in Hillston, Central New South Wales. In 2011, we established links with a local soap manufacturer to produce hard bar olive oil soap using our oil. From this beginning we formed the Olive Oil Skin Care Company in 2012.
I was amazed to see the big size bottles for review, that means not just me but the entire family can use it and I can see the difference.
Hand Wash: Lemon Scented Tea Tree- $29.90
Loved this hand wash with a natural touch of lemon which makes it so refreshing. You might not even notice that it has added ingredient of micro-fine bamboo to gently exfoliate your hands leaving them smooth. The bamboo is supposed to remove the dead skin and the olive oil content helps re-generate the skin. I have read that they are eco-friendly too as the micro-fine bamboo readily decomposes naturally.
Face Wash: Juniper Orange- $26.90
You will agree that our face is the most exposed part for which we all love to take care. This face wash is very mild and with a hint of orange makes you feel very refreshing. This bottle is big enough to last for months now. The Extra Virgin Olive Oil content provides nutrients, polyphenols and Vitamins A and E; all vital in fighting free radicals and improving skin flexibility.
Body Wash: Pure – $29.90
I have been using the body wash from last one week to see the difference. First thing, I have noticed that it is free from fragrance and is very mild yet quite moisturising liquid bath. Secondly, even after the shower you will not feel that your skin is dry. It is an ideal wash for the sensitive skin like mine. You will notice that this liquid soap is creamy and very less lather is formed on the skin.
Soothing Balm: Original – $26.90
Their range is not restricted to face wash, body wash etc but they make soothing balm which has healing, calming and soothing properties to nourish and moisturise even the most aggravated and sensitive skin. I have recently started using on my hands before going to sleep it helps to relieve from that itchy and dry skin. It is good for even bites and burn, so you can use for kids too.
Hand Cream: Naturally Nourished- $19.90
This hand cream is perfect to carry everyday in your handbag and you can use this anytime of the day. It absorbs very quickly leaving hands soft & smooth and best part that it is not thick . It helps to prevent age spots with the clinically proven Olive Leaf Extract.
Face Moisturiser: Serenity- $24.90
Face moisturiser is again quite light to use any time of the day and it is rich in nutrients and vitamins and contains emollients derived from olives, jojoba and other botanicals. If you want to nurture your skin and make it radiant, refreshed and hydrated go for it. It is also supported by clinically proven Olive Leaf Extract and other natural ingredients, to smooth wrinkles around the eyes and forehead and to help prevent age spots.
You will be in love with these soaps which are made with natural essential oil and are individually packed. At first, I don’t even want to open them as they look beautiful.
Traditional- Goat’s Milk Olive oil Soap – $ 9.90
Goat’s milk combined with pure extra virgin olive oil produces a very gentle unscented soap suitable for the most sensitive of skins. Goat’s milk contains many nutrients to nourish the skin including essential proteins, amino acids and Vitamin A.
Aboriginal Series – Gumby Gumby with Blue Mallee Eucalyptus Olive Oil Soap – $ 10.90
Gumby Gumby leaves and Blue Mallee Eucalyptus Oil are traditional ingredients used by Aboriginal people to benefit the skin.
Both the soaps are good on the skin though not much lather but again doing their job well not leaving your skin dry. In that Gumby Gumby soap crushed leaves are mixed to add texture.
We have got something special for Mums&Babies readers too, Kerygo will sponsor one surprise gift set worth ($90) for a lucky reader.
