Your Guide To Sven's Island
Committed to providing effective, natural skin care and improving the lives of those living in rural poverty, Sven's Island is an amazing New Zealand-based brand new to Nourished Life, so I've put together this quick guide to my top picks from the range.
Created in 1985, Sven's Island Natural Remedies was created after the brand's namesake Sven discovered that many of the native plants on his native Great Barrier Island, in New Zealand, possessed therapeutic properties that hadn't previously been explored. He began experimenting and developing recipes for his family and friends, who then convinced him to share his expertise with the rest of the world, and so Sven's Island natural skin care was born! I love that this brand is committed to creating high quality products while protecting the integrity of the natural environment, but even more impressive is their commitment to improving the lives of those living in rural poverty, with every purchase of a Sven’s Island product giving those in poverty the chance of a better quality of life. If you're new to this brand and not sure where to start, here's a guide to my top picks from the Sven's Island range.
Top 6 Sven's Island Natural Remedies Products
Sven's Island Spot Less Intensive Care Facial Cleanser
I love the Sven's Island Spot Less Intensive Care Facial Cleanser because it doesn't dry out the skin while it cleanses, ensuring the skin isn't stripped of its natural protective oils. This nourishing cleanser contains Lemonwood Extract, which has high antibacterial properties that work to soothe and heal acne outbreaks. It's an amazing natural alternative to the highly drying products out there that are targeted at teenagers suffering from hormonal acne, instead using a New Zealand plant called Kumarahou to create a gentle foam.
Sven's Island Fresh Face Anti-Ageing Face Cream
If you're after a natural alternative to mainstream anti-ageing creams, try the Sven's Island Fresh Face Anti-Ageing Face Cream. As our skin ages, it loses its natural squalene which serves as a built-in moisturiser and antioxidant. Olive Squalene, a key ingredient in this facial moisturiser, is able to mimic the skin's natural squalene to fight against the visible signs of ageing. This cream also uses the power of Black Fern, which has been clinially tested to regenerate skin cells by up to 48%. When you apply the cream you may actually feel a slight tightening effect from the Black Fern working to smooth and reduce fine lines!
Sven's Island Skinny Dip All Body Skin Repair Lotion
The Sven's Island Skinny Dip All Body Skin Repair Lotion is an extremely effective moisturiser for the body, but it also works to soothe skin conditions including the redness, inflammation and irritation associated with eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. Kawakawa Leaf extract is a key ingredient here, known for its natural healing properties.
Sven's Island Lip Balmy Medi-Salve Lip Balm
One of my new handbag and desktop essentials is the Sven's Island Lip Balmy Medi-Salve Lip Balm! This amazing lip balm is super hydrating thanks to Safflower Oil, Shea Butter and Coconut Oil, plus it's antiviral and antibacterial. Organic Manuka Leaf Oil works to help prevent and shorten the duration of cold sores, while organic Manuka Beeswax provides antibacterial protection and help seals in that moisture.
Sven's Island Miracle Manuka Medi-Salve All Body Ointment
As a busy mum, you know how much I love a good multitasker. The Sven's Island Miracle Manuka Medi-Salve All Body Ointment is a medicine cabinet in a tin, treating anything and everything from cuts, bites and burns to eczema and psoriasis. The Sven's Island team had their blend of Manuka and Kanuka oils independently tested and found that they are highly effective in treating hospital grade antibiotic resistant bacteria.
Sven's Island Bubba Calm Super-Sensitive Baby Cream
An absolute essential for young skin is the Sven's Island Bubba Calm Super-Sensitive Baby Cream. This cream has been specifically formulated for delicate baby skin, using Jojoba, Avocado and Sunflower oils to hydrate even the most sensitive and irritated young skin.
