MY STORY

I believe the secret to healthy beautiful skin is to live life as naturally as possible.

With a background in the health and fitness industry leading a healthy lifestyle has always been important to me. Living well, exercising regularly and eating nourishing, fresh, wholesome meals made from scratch. Has naturally translated to the type of skincare I like to use.

' I’ve always believed that what you put ON your body is just as important as what you put IN your body.'

To me this means using skincare products that are also completely natural and unprocessed like the wholesome foods I like to eat. However, finding wholesome ‘natural’ skincare on the market that has not been mixed with chemical synthetics, preservatives, fillers or added fragrance is nearly impossible to find. Except for the ubiquitous single ingredient rosehip or almond oil.

This lead me on a journey to start experimenting with making my own skincare. Using only fresh plant ingredients that would feed and nourish my skin in a truly natural and healthy way. Of course without a man-made chemical in sight! After a very brief time of trying out my formulations, I began to have and positive results taking place. My skin began to become the best it had ever been! When my dermatologist asked me what products I had been using on my skin because it was looking so good. I knew I was on the right track.

During this time I spent time researching skincare ingredients and looking at what skincare companies were putting into their products. What surprised me the most that there was very little difference to the way a ‘natural’ product was made to how a ‘conventional’ was made  – just swap outs for gentler plant based preservatives or synthetic fragrance for essential oils and maybe a shorter ingredient list. But other that a natural moisturiser was still made mostly with water, synthetic chemicals, emulsifiers, fillers, preservatives and fragrance.

The health and beauty of skin depends on the delicate balance between the cells of which it is made up of, and the microbiome that live on its surface. 

I questioned the use of ‘preservatives’ and 'essential oils' in skincare. I asked myself the big question "if the bacteria on our skin is responsible and important component of skin health. Then why are we potentially destroying or disrupting our valuable microbiome with products full of synthetic preservatives. Or including antimicrobial, antibacterial, antiseptic ingredients such as therapeutic essential oils to our skincare?" It didn't make any sense at all????

This was the big catalyst leading up to the development of the NUN Botanical Skincare collection. It spurred me on to create a product without any questionable ingredients that would work with and not against the delicate microbiota that lives on our skin. Nurturing and enhancing the skin ecology and its bacterial diversity. Which would lead to and ultimately produce healthy vibrant skin. 

I simply embraced the concept of purity and brought it to you in the form of NUN.

WHO WE ARE

We believe that the skincare that you use should be a true reflection of who you are, what you believe and what you value most in life.

We have adopted an effortlessly cool minimalist, pared back approach to natural beauty. We are modern day purist's that gravitate to pure natural products that have authentic integrity. We believe the skincare that you use should be a true reflection of who you are, what you believe and what you value most in life. We value the good things in life that give us the results that we crave, without compromising or posing a threat to our health, well being or to our earth. We know more is not better and when enough is enough. To reduce the clutter in our lives we look to fewer but harder working items to place on our shelves. We choose high performance products that contain clean, pure, safe ingredients. We have a mutual respect for both our bodies and for our precious planet. We are mindful of product pollution and all its negative effects on the environment. We take a mindful and considered approach to life and place high value on meaningful connection with others. We have a preference to life experiences over material items and collecting more things. We never stop striving for the best in ourselves and always looks for the best in others. NUN is in all of us and is one of us.

THOUGHTS  

The skincare industry is an un-level playing field full of misleading claims, misinformation and hype.

The skincare industry is an un-level playing field full of misleading claims, misinformation and hype. Full of green washing and fairy dusting. In today’s modern world the truth is that not all skincare is created equal. Conventional skincare is made mostly of water, loaded with chemical synthetics, and contains virtually zero nutrients. Mass skincare advertising campaigns have cleverly convinced us that synthetic based skincare is far better for us and will produce better results than say an all-natural product. This is simply not the truth. We have been taught from an early age that chemicals will do no harm to our bodies when used in small amounts. This is of great concern with the average women using up to six to eight products a day, approximately containing up to 200 different chemicals. Synthetic cleansers, toners, moisturisers, shampoo, conditioners, hair products, deodorants, sunblock, makeup, nail polish, the list goes on. Now is the time to take a step back and think about and ask ourselves the enormous question. What is the long term impact of all of this unnatural consumption, actually doing to both our personal health, well being and precious planet?
