DesertPea Native Australian Skin Care - Natural Australian Skin care and beauty products
I am fussy about the ingredients that I use in our products. I always support local, small and fair trade business suppliers where possible. I use only the highest quality raw and organic ingredients and believe the difference shows in the end product.
I work with Australian natural fruit botanicals and extracts, Australian essential oils, and Australian cold pressed oils; mainly certified macadamia oil from NSW and Jojoba oil. Not only because I am supporting our farmers and other industry but also the amount of resources and carbon used in delivery is more cost effective and better for the environment.
The other key benefits to utilising the power of our native plant species is that botanical fruits and extracts are high in vitamins, anti-oxidants and essential nutrients that are beneficial to the skin and help maintain a beautiful healthy glow.
DesertPea natural beauty and skin care products are safe to use on the sensitive skin. I do not use harmful preservatives, colours or synthetically produced cosmetic ingredients, petro chemicals or mineral oil.
I do use essential oils to increase the skin benefits of each of the products. Each essential oil is chosen for its medicinal properties and beneficial skin care results. If you do have extremely sensitive skin, please keep this in mind and always to a patch test, as you still may be hypersensitive to some essential oils.
Desertpea Skin care and beauty products are a very simple skin care range. I do not want to give any misleading claims or promises. I simply wanted to create a natural and beautiful skin care range that was easy to choose, simple to use in daily maintenance regimes and easily accessible for everyone. I have been using the desertpea natural beauty products in my mobile massage and beauty service for some years now. I am confident that the products excel their intended use for regaining and maintaining healthy skin as well as offering a unique sensory experience for the client both in profession and at home use of the natural beauty products.
