Why Australian botanicals is a must in your natural skincare routine

The Australian wilderness holds a wealth of skincare secrets found nowhere else in the world. Here at Beeautify, we bring the nourishing and restorative powers of our pristine forests and vibrant deserts to you through our unique natural skincare range. Read on for a closer look at the distinctive Australian botanicals that give our products their extraordinary regenerative powers.

Kakadu plum

Kakadu Plum has amazing benefits for your skin

When you want younger, wrinkle-free skin, look no further than northern Australia’s Kakadu plum. The richest natural source of vitamin C in the world, the Kakadu plum is an all-purpose skincare solution. 

A powerful antioxidant, the vitamin C in the Kakadu plum works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fight ageing and prevent sun damage. Not only does it protect your skin, but it improves skin tone and texture, boosts collagen production, brightens dark spots and soothes acne.

The Kakadu plum is also rich in gallic and ellagic acids, which further protect and restore your skin. Naturally anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, these gentle acids help reduce redness and soothe inflamed skin. Ellagic acid even promotes elasticity, leaving your skin looking supple and youthful. To experience the benefits of the peerless Kakadu plum for yourself, try our Nourishing Night Cream or our Gentle Honey Cleanser. 


Benefits of Quandong Fruit for your skin

Another uniquely Australian ingredient, the quandong fruit, provides a host of health and skincare benefits. Found in the sandy wilderness of central and southern Australia, this tasty fruit is known as the ‘desert peach’ because of its peach and apricot flavour. But while this vibrant red superfood makes a great dessert, the real potential of the quandong lies in its cosmetic powers. 

Second only to the Kakadu plum, quandongs are chock-full of vitamin C. They have the same anti-ageing, sun fighting and skin improving properties, as well as their own unique skincare advantages.

Quandongs contain alpha-amino and phenolic acids, which provide a gentle, enzyme-based exfoliation while keeping your skin hydrated and vibrant.They are also rich in rutin, a powerful anti-inflammatory phytoactive, which helps reduce redness and inflammation from acne, as well as dark circles and puffiness under the eyes.

To top it off, quandongs are an excellent source of vitamin E, an oil-soluble antioxidant that helps hydrate your skin, reduce inflammation, and protect you from free radicals.  For healthier, younger-looking skin, try our quandong-infused Soothing Honey Clay Mask.

Lemon myrtle

Benefits of Lemon Myrtle for you skin

Lemon myrtle is a tall herb found in the wild subtropical rainforests of Queensland. Lemon myrtle has a strong citrus fragrance and flavour and, when it isn’t being used for desserts and marinades, it acts as a powerful antibacterial and antiseptic thanks to the world’s strongest concentration of citral. 

This natural compound has powerful antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal properties, helping to prevent acne breakouts, heal wounds and protect your skin from harmful bacteria.

Lemon myrtle is also naturally anti-inflammatory and a source of antioxidants and vitamin E. Together, they are a powerful anti-ageing combination, keeping your skin looking younger, smoother and hydrated. Experience our range of moisturisers or our Gentle Honey Cleanser for a taste of lemony luxury.

Honey myrtle

Native to the southern regions of Western Australia, the lemon-scented honey myrtle is a potent source of citral. A relative of the lemon myrtle, honey myrtle is also naturally antimicrobial, protecting your skin from acne-causing bacteria.

Rich in β-myrcene, honey myrtle also reduces inflammation, fights free radicals, and nourishes and calms both your skin and your mind. Try our Purifying Oil Cleanser to experience a natural, refreshing cleanse with a citrus twist.
