Luxe Botanics

Inspired by founder Jené Roestorf’s roots in Africa, the creation of Luxe Botanics was spurred on further by her training in science and her passion for innovation. The brand’s skincare ranges revolve around three high-performing and organically grown key botanical ingredients with their own proven therapeutic and cosmetics perks:

  • Marula nut oil from Kenya which hydrates and nourishes the skin
  • Camu camu berry from Brazil that firms and brightens the skin
  • Kigelia Africana to clarify, repair and protect the skin

Manufactured in the USA under stringent international standards, Luxe Botanics only uses eco-friendly, certified organic ingredients. In addition, Luxe Botanics also gives back – with every purchase made, Luxe Botanics supports communities in Africa and South America through various literacy and hunger relief programs.

Burt's Bees

Burt’s Bee is popularly known for using beeswax as their primary ingredient in their best-selling lip balms, which has proved to be an effective natural moisturiser. Burt’s Bee also excludes harmful and unnecessary synthetic ingredients like parabens, petrolatum and chemical sunscreens (oxybenzone). Apart than their iconic lip balms, the brand’s skincare line ranges from cleansers to toners, moisturisers, and lip scrubs infused with all-natural, nourishing ingredients such as sunflower oil, willow bark extract, shea butter, royal jelly, cocoa butter, and lemon. 

Our top picks from Burt’s Bees? We can never do without the Tinted Lip Balm in Red Dahlia, which adds a tinge of colour to the pale lips. The Peach and Willow Bark Deep Pore Scrub has finely milled peach stone grains to exfoliate the skin and willow bark extract to unclog pores.

Josie Maran Cosmetics

Given its multitude of uses as a miracle oil for your face, body, and hair, it's no surprise why argan oil is the hero product of model-turned-entrepreneur Josie Maran's cosmetics line. Her passion for natural, eco-friendly skincare spans far beyond her beauty regimen – apart from using environmentally-friendly and recyclable production materials, the argan oil used in Josie Maran line of skincare products is also sustainably harvested and pressed by women’s co-ops in Morocco.

There's no need to explain why the 100% Pure Argan Oil – a personal favourite of Josie's – is at the top of our list. To top off the entire argan oil experience, seal in your body’s moisture and hydration with the light-as-air Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter.
