A few months back I did a workshop with Clean Beauty Co and it was great. Dominika and Elsie who are behind the brand, showed us that making your own beauty products doesn’t have to be long winded or complicated. If you haven’t heard of Clean Beauty Co yet, here they are in their own words –
‘We are building a modern beauty brand that makes natural and non-toxic beauty accessible. We believe that everyone can be empowered to take control of what they put on their skin.’
Take a look at their Instagram and you will see that they are taking the beauty industry by storm. Not only are they spreading the clean beauty word through their workshops – they have just added the new SuperFood Serum workshop to their offerings – but they have their own product range as well as a soon to be released book. They are also one half of Clean Cult who host brilliant wellbeing events in London.
I am so happy and grateful that they found the time to answer some quick questions for the blog..
What is your definition of clean beauty and why is it so important?
Transparent and conscious beauty that empowers people to take control over what they put on their skin.
What does organic mean to you?
Organic to us is natural that starts right from the soil. It’s about trust and peace of mind. Better for the land, better for the environment, better for our skin and ultimately better for us.
Is organic beauty important?
Absolutely, but there’s a lot of confusion around what to look for when trying to buy organic and unfortunately there is very little regulation around what brands can and can’t claim. Look for a certification such as the Soil Association to have some satisfaction that what you’re buying is actually organic.
Jojoba oil is less well known but a good all-rounder – it’s close in make up to the skin’s natural sebum so it helps to balance oil levels and even out acne prone skin.
Apple cider vinegar is an easy kitchen cupboard essential that you can transition into your skincare routine. Diluted it makes a great hair rinse or skin toner.
Can you give us a quick easy recipe to boost our skin?
We make a rose toner in our workshops that always gets glowing feedback for giving dull or tired skin a boost! It’s super simple – 45ml of organic rose water and 5ml of prickly pear oil, decanted into a handy spritz bottle so that you can carry it around and keep skin hydrated. Obviously water and oil don’t mix but we quite like that – give it a quick shake and it looks like glitter!
What would be your top skincare tip to help us transition into winter?
Invest in a thicker cream or butter to apply at night and keep dry skin at bay. We love using a combination of shea and cocoa butters on hands, lips and drier areas of the face before we go to bed. It has time to absorb and will help your skin adjust to the cooler climate.
Thank you so much Dominika and Elsie for your brilliant answers!
I’ve got that rose toner sitting on my desk and it is lovely! Will anyone give it a try? Do you make any products yourself?
I'm thinking of doing a seasonal newsletter - no spam I promise!
