The conversation around clean skincare mostly revolves around clean ingredients, but more and more skincare brands work towards nature-related issues, which include the recyclability of their packaging and the traceability of their ingredients.
With a global awareness on wide-ranging issues from skin allergies to the effects of harmful ingredients on human beings and animal, including marine life, this healthy shift is necessary for a cleaner, better future.
Here are some clean brands available on KENS Apothecary and their hero products to get you started on your clean beauty journey.
A crowd favourite for its soothing and calming scent, this delicate blend of botanical extracts gently removes impurities from sensitive facial skin without stripping, allowing skin to breathe freely. It leaves skin thoroughly cleansed, calm and soothed.
This is a skin-resurfacing AHA facial toner that delivers seven benefits in one 100 per cent recycled bottle. It exfoliates, brightens, tightens and hydrates, for a smooth, even and energised complexion, and is gentle enough for daily use.
Formulated with lactic acid (AHA) and salicin (BHA), this cult-status tonic brings energy back to dull or tired-looking skin. Lactic acid effectively exfoliates skin surface, breaking up dead cells and replacing moisture. Salicin from willow bark helps pores appear tighter and skin appears smoother.
The serum instantly illuminates and re-plumps the skin for a fresh and revitalised complexion. Tired skin is instantly rejuvenated and radiant, thanks to its stabilised vitamin C that’s bioavailable and is 100 per cent of natural origin.
This oil-free, vitamin-enriched, water and sweat resistant lotion offers superior broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and absorbs quickly without grease or heavy residue. Formulated for extreme conditions, Sun Guard forms a barrier of protection and stays on during intense physical activity in and out of the water.
A clean deodorant infused with natural eucalyptus and citronellyl, this one helps to neutralise odour. This deodorant is synthesised with refreshing natural eucalyptus extract and is appropriate for all skin types, especially sensitive. It’s formulated without aluminum, alcohol and parabens, with only natural fragrance and colour.
Formulated with rare, sustainably sourced ingredients, this rich, restorative shampoo leaves hair soft, silky, and luminous, and scalp, soothed. Made with omega-9 rich Rahua oil and naturally scented with the fresh, woodsy aroma of Palo Santo oil, this formula is concentrated and will keep scalp in balance—not too oily, and not too dry.
The conditioner delivers lustrous, rich and ultra-hydrated hair. Rahua oil acts as a detangler and exotic extracts maintain strong hair and healthy scalp. It can also be used as a lightweight styling cream to smooth, tame frizz and flyaways, and add hold.
