‘Regenerating beauty with superior results’
Another day, another amazing cruelty free beauty brand for you guys!
A new generation of organic skincare formulations, comprising of natural technologies that have revolutionized the traditional approach to anti-aging skincare, body and hair care, ladies (& gents), I give you the Grown Alchemist.
Grown Alchemist is fab new Australian Brand which proudly fill their products with organic ingredients & make a conscious effort with regards to sustainability & packaging.
The company fully appreciate the benefits of organic products & they explain on the website how chemical packed beauty products can actually have the opposite effect on your skin, such as contributing to the aging process. Grown Alchemist recognize that our bodies love natural stuff – & ends up rejecting a lot of chemical stuff we put onto our skin anyway (something I didn’t know!) These rejected chemicals usually ends up in fat cells or cause oxidation (the production of what we call ‘free radicals’). Long story short, this ultimately prompts an increase in wrinkles – no thanks. It’s pretty scientific stuff – you can read more about it here. Organic ingredients have a much higher anti-oxidant & vitamin level, ensuring all the ingredients used by Grown Alchemist are packed with essential nutrients – yay!
The Grown Alchemist are 100% cruelty free, no products or ingredients are tested on animals. When it comes to packaging, they use the worlds most recycled products to promote sustainability. The packaging is carefully chosen to ensure that the fresh, organic ingredients stay exactly that – organic.
This fab brand has something for everyone & when shopping online, you can search by skin concern/type for a number of product types including;
Exfoliation (you get the idea)
Grown Alchemist also have a body-care & hair-care range too which I can’t wait to try as I am currently obsessed with organic hair products. & they don’t just look after us ladies, they have great stuff for your man too which is also pretty popular.
I have been using the Vanilla & Orange Peel hand cream & what I really noticed about this lotion, is how much my body loves it. My skin literally soaks the stuff up, & after using it before bed (post bath) my skin felt like silk. I really noticed a difference on areas which are usually quite dry too, like my elbows & knees. This stuff really has worked wonders on my hands, my dry cuticles/skin around my fingers have vanished after a few applications.
The smell is simply gorgeous. Very fresh and citrusy & unlike these chemical packed lotions, the products have a very natural smell. Instead of that sticky/overpowering fruit smell, my skin smells like fresh organic peel with gentle vanilla scents, it’s just beaut.
GRAPE SEED, WHEATGERM AND ROSEHIP OIL RICH IN FREE RADICAL FIGHTING ANTIOXIDANTS LEAVE SKIN LOOKING SMOOTH AND RADIANT. COLD PRESSED ORANGE PEEL OIL CONTAINS POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANTS THAT LEAVE SKIN LOOKING SUPPLE AND TONED. ROSEHIP AND CAMELLIA SEED OIL NOTICEABLY IMPROVE SKIN HYDRATION WHILE ALSO HELPING REPAIR THE APPEARANCE OF SKIN DAMAGED BY OXIDATIVE STRESS NOTICEABLY INCREASING SMOOTHNESS. POLYSACCHARIDES FROM ALOE VERA HELP THE SKIN APPEAR DE-STRESSED AND SOOTHED. VANILLIN FROM VANILLA PROVIDES UPLIFTING AND CALMING AROMATIC PROPERTIES WHILE FLAVONOIDS AND OMEGA 3 AND 6 FROM SEA BUCKTHORN BERRY VISIBLY IMPROVE SKIN ELASTICITY AND SOFTNESS.
What a waste of money it seems these chemical packed brands are – no wonder Grown Alchemist have been raved about in the likes of Vogue & Marie Claire mags.
The website is very user-friendly & the products are great value for money considering they are organic. The starting price, for example, for this beautiful hand cream is only 15 USD/ 9 GBP (Christmas shopping anyone?) This cream will last me a long time too, as a little squeeze goes far as it is luxuriously thick.
I have lost count of the times people have asked me ‘does natural stuff actually work?’ & my answer is always ‘yes!’ Now I have all this interesting information too from the Grown Alchemist about the biology behind our skins desire for natural beauty products. This is hands down my fav hand cream & I can’t wait to try out more of their stuff – Have a little browse & let me know if you try anything!
Rose, ginseng & chamomile balancing toner – I’m coming for you! Jess x
