NEW BRAND ALERT: KIIKA SKIN


Last week we created a bond with another Australian skincare brand - Kiika Skin. Being an Australian business ourselves, we love helping our fellow neighbours. There’s no better feeling than supporting another small Melbourne business. We’re so pleased and proud to introduce Kiika Skin to you all! 

 

Kiika Skin currently have two awesome products: 


They are natural powdered skin products that were created with the environment in mind. The founders wanted to create something waterless, in a resealable and recyclable  pouch, in order to reduce their carbon footprint. The Kiika Skin products contain the all natural Australian Kaolin with mineral Calcium Carbonate with no nasty additives. They are 100% Australian made and owned. 

Let's learn more about the products! 

Kiika White Australian Clay - Deep Pore Detox 

A purifying/detoxifying mask that removes all nasties, impurities and toxins. Suitable for all skin types, especially acne-prone and oily.

She’s made with the following key ingredients: 

  • 100% natural Australian Kaolin Clay - Also known as white clay, is a very fine, soft and light powder which is primarily made up of the mineral kaolinite. Compared to other clays, like Bentonite clay, Kaolin clay is not as effective as an absorbent but it can still remove excess sebum from the face. This actually means that it’s not as drying as the other clays, it can clear the skin pores and draw out impurities without stripping your skin’s natural oils - win win! Kaolin is great for oily/acne-prone skin as it can dry up blackheads, minimise the appearance of pores, mattify the complexion and leave the skin soft and smooth. 
  • Lilly Pilly Fruit Extract - Also known as Riberry, is a summer flowering shrub, native to Australia. It’s considered a super fruit due to its incredible potency of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, fruit acids, phytosterols and essential fatty acids. Lilly Pilly was traditionally used by Indigenous people for its great healing and antibacterial properties. This extract has good astringent properties and is a natural source of gentle AHA. It also contains a high concentration of vitamin C and other fruit acids which can help keep the skin looking radiant and youthful. 
  • Lemon Aspen Fruit Extract - Lemon Aspen is a small rainforest tree that produces small and cylindrical fruits. It has higher antioxidant capacity than blueberries and is a great source of folate, zinc and iron. In skincare, Lemon Aspen Fruit Extract is used to protect the skin against free radicals and also help with cell regeneration and collagen, elastin and keratin synthesis. 
  • Davidson’s Plum Fruit Extract - This fruit is loaded with phytonutrients including tartaric acid, anthocyanin and many more. Tartaric acid is a type of AHA and can help with exfoliation, strengthening the skin, clear pores and reduce pigmentation. Anthocyanin, which gives the plum its red colour, is a potent anti-aging active that can help reduce DNA damage. 

How to use: 

In a small bowl, mix with a little water to form a thick paste. Apply to face to get an event coverage avoiding the area around the eyes. Allow the product to dry and once fry wash off with water. Use 1-2 times per week. Kiika Skin suggests that for super intense treatment use a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water. It’s normal to get a tightening and tingling feeling. 

Brightening Exfoliant Powder - Intense Microderm 

You can consider this product your very own at home microdermabrasion. It helps remove dirt, dead skin cells and pollution. Leaves skin smooth and soft. Suitable for all skin types, 

She’s made with the following key ingredients: 

  • Oryza Sativa Powder - Fine rice powder that buffs away dead skin cells from the surface of the skin to achieve a smoother and brighter apperance. 
  • Papaya Fruit Extract - Is well known for containing the enzyme papain which is a popular natural exfoliant. The papain helps to break down the bonds between dead skin cells to help remove the old layer of skin. 
  • Pineapple Fruit Extract - Contains a mixture of enzymes, bromelain, that can chemically exfoliate the skin for a luminous glow and a smooth complexion. It’s also rich in antioxidants and vitamin C. 

How to use: 

In a small bowl, mix with a little water to form a paste. Add extra water or powder to customise the consistency. Gently rub into your face and neck avoiding the eye area. Rinse thoroughly to reveal a smooth healthy glow.
