Pawpaw to the rescue!
Did you know not all pawpaw ointments are created equal? They may appear to be all-natural but some actually contain petroleum-based ingredients. Not so with Qsilica Paw Paw Rescue Ointment ($8.95), which combines fermented pawpaw extract in a soothing base made from shea butter, beeswax, macadamia oil, calendula extract and the brand’s signature ingredient, colloidal mineral silica. Using only naturally derived ingredients, this beauty essential is proudly petrochemical-free – your dry skin and chapped lips will love it. www.qsilica.com.au
One for the boys
Natural skincare shouldn’t just be for women – which is why we’re so excited to see this stylish new Aussie skincare range especially for the gents! Made from all-natural ingredients, Gentleman’s Brand Co is the brainchild of three young Australians who wanted to create a simple, natural approach to men’s skincare. Free from harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances, the products are based on organic oils, bush botanicals and premium plant-based extracts. The range starts from $27.95 and consists of a Foaming Face Wash, Coconut Body Wash and Daily Moisturiser – or try all three products in The Daily Regime 3 Pack ($79.95). gentlemansbrand.co
Do you suffer from dry hair or an irritated scalp? If you’ve tried every product under the sun, you might want to get back to basics with a simple oil. Jojoba is one of the best for scalp and hair conditions, being non-greasy, antibacterial and closest to our skin’s own sebum. Try gently massaging a small amount of jojoba into your scalp before washing. Alternatively, you can add a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner for a healthy shine. We like The Jojoba Company’s 100% Natural Australian Jojoba (from $19.95). www.thejojobacompany.com.au.
