As we become more and more aware of what we’re putting in our bodies, it is also important to be aware of what we’re putting on our skin, because whatever we do inevitable gets soaked into our system. So it’s no surprise that all natural skincare has become the new must-have in the beauty community over the last year, and local brand Happy Skincare fits right in. Their range of skincare products are 100% natural, organic, vegan and not tested on animals. Run by the wonderful couple Aaron and Phoebe, Happy Skincare was born to the world after Aaron whipped up a homemade, all-natural concoction to help with the stretch marks on Phoebe’s stomach during her pregnancy. Using the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) standard for all their ingredients, you can be sure that anything that is inside is clearly labelled on the outside. Sourcing their ingredients from plants and mineral origins, but not mineral oils, their products can help with a range of skin issues and conditions including aging, irritation, eczema, acne and conditions stemming from diabetes. Their range of deodorants, cleansers, toners, moisturisers and more are recommended by medical professionals, and they were the first brand to create an organic intensive repair oil for those going through cancer treatments.
