product of the week: sukin hydrating body lotion

Sukin is an Australian skin and haircare company with a commitment to creating products that are natural, effective and environmentally sustainable (and a personal favourite brand of mine).  In stores now is a limited edition range of their Hydrating Body Lotion; for each bottle sold Sukin will donate $1.00 to Keep Australia Beautiful.

This deliciously moisturising lotion is filled with aloe vera, rosehip oil, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, shea butter and avocado oil, and is just the thing for my dry winter skin.

I think Sukin will always hold a special place in my heart because I discovered them when I was first becoming a greenie. One day I was searching for a new shampoo in the chemist, clutching my 'ingredients to avoid' list from Gorgeously Green, and stumbled upon this brand that seemed to answer all my eco-prayers.

Sukin products do not contain:
  • Sulphates
  • Animal derivatives
  • Petrochemicals
  • Artificial colours
  • Synthetic fragrances
  • Triethanolamine
  • Mineral oils
  • Parabens
The products are all made in Australia and, best of all, the company is certified carbon neutral.

I've been using their shampoo, conditioner and body lotion for a couple of years now and couldn't be happier with the results.  Sukin is widely stocked in chemists across the country (totally affordable - another bonus!), and in 2010 they extended into overseas markets.  So keep your peepers peeled for Sukin - you'll love how healthy your hair and skin feel after being pampered with naturally beautiful ingredients.
