Himalayan Salt

Origin: Pakistan

Type:

Yep, you guessed it. Himalayan sea salt comes all the way from the himalayan mountains (we know that was a real brain teaser). Ancient oceans actually deposited these salts more than 250 million years ago when the mountains were being formed and lucky for you we happened to get our hands on some (so you don’t have to trek all the way to Pakistan to do it yourself).

We can all agree that having any kind of bath is relaxing but by adding some himalayan salt to yours, you can instantly feel like you’ve transported yourself to a sunny beach somewhere thanks to its ability to calm, soothe and relax.

Having a himalayan salt bath can also be good to alleviate all those hard to reach places of their acne (think the back or shoulders). It is because of the antimicrobial properties found in salt that kick butt when it comes to treating skin conditions like acne, or even psoriasis and eczema, helping to reduce scaling, redness and irritation. There’s literally no negatives to test driving this salt when you’re having your next bath with the positives being a relaxed state of mind and a body free of all its acne.

Jojoba

Origin: Israel - Jojoba Desert

Type: Golden Virgin

Simmondsia Chinensis
Jojoba Oil (pronounced ho-ho-ba) is actually a liquid wax rather than an oil, and it closely resembles the natural production of sebum in the skin. Jojoba is chock-full with nutrients such as Vitamin E and B, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that all work their magic to help repair damaged skin cells, fight premature ageing and provide long lasting moisture and hydration for the skin. Permeating deep into the skin, this superhero oil is well suited to all skin types, but particularly sensitive, oily and combination skin.

Kicking signs of ageing, fine lines and wrinkles to the curb, Jojoba oil actually boasts the ability to reduce oiliness as it mimics the skin’s natural sebum production therefore reducing excessive oil production. Jojoba Oil can almost ‘trick’ the skin into thinking it has produced enough oil (sebum), therefore reducing excessive oil production. This, in turn, can also be effective in controlling acne breakouts.

We use virgin Jojoba Oil straight from the Jojoba Desert in Israel. Read more about our supplier and their sustainable practices here: https://buttnakedbody.com.au/pages/suppliers

Mica

Let your skin sparkle thanks to Fluorophlogopite! More commonly known as Mica, this man-made version works just as well as the natural one with the only real difference being one is made in a lab and the other isn't. This means you get glittering skin that even Edward Cullen would be jealous of!

Now normally we're all for including natural ingredients in our products but there's a very good reason why we opt to include a man-made version instead of the natural one. There are a lot of human rights issues involved in the mining process of natural mica (mainly surrounding child labour) so obvs that's a big no-no from us, and despite being man-made, it's friends with the environment and made up of natural minerals. But don't worry, this ingredient isn't produced from the raw material of plastics. No sir.

The Fluorphlogopite within this product is synthetic, meaning it's produced when Magnesium aluminium silicate is bound by Potassium through the use of extreme heat (1500 degrees Celsius). In other words, it's been consciously created with your health in mind. The purity of synthetic mica is also higher so bold colours and dazzling shimmers can be achieved more easily, allowing your skin to sparkle the way it deserves. Yay.
