From the EDITOR
It’s hard to believe that just over Five years ago, I was still lathering my skin with toxin filled products.
While working in a corporate job, I was constantly feeling exhausted. It wasn’t until I found myself struggling up a single flight of stairs, that I knew something was wrong! As I was rubbing body lotion onto my sore legs, I began to wonder… what exactly was in this product? Could it be making the problem worse?! With some extensive research, I discovered that I had been applying around 500 chemicals to my body each day! It was time to make a change.
With so many misconceptions about toxin free products, there’s nothing more rewarding than changing a person’s mindset. Every day we dispel the myth that living toxin free is expensive and ineffective!
For so long I have felt frustrated by mainstream magazines that promote products filled with nasty chemicals. Creating this Nourished Life Magazine has given me the opportunity to share expert advice and information about natural products, without having to compete with big brand advertising. I have always dreamt about a magazine filled with products that you can buy off the page. I truly hope you enjoy this first issue.
“I have always dreamt about a magazine filled with products that you can buy off the page.
“The colours in this eyeshadow palette work for day and night, and you can mix and match them to create so many looks which means it saves a tonne of room in your makeup bag!”
“This has a bit of a cult reputation, and with good reason. This mascara is pigmented using black tea and berries, so rather than damaging your eyelashes it actually really hydrates them and keeps them healthy- plus it smells amazing!”
“I like to look really natural and sun kissed in the spring, but the weather hasn’t been warm for long enough for me to develop a glow! This bronzer feels beautiful and silky and the colour looks so natural, so it can be built up as you ease into the warmer weather.”
“I love bright lips but during the day, especially in the spring, I’m just after a subtle wash of colour. This is the perfect peachy, rosy shade and it really does work for all skin tones.”
“Multi-tasking products are always a must-have for me, so this 100% Pure BB Cream is great because it gives me a really natural looking glow, evens out my complexion and keeps my skin hydrated during the day. It is available in 3 shades and also has the added benefit of SPF 15”
“As a busy mum, I’m a big fan of beauty products that can ‘do it all’, and this serum refines pores, smoothes the skin, supports cell renewal and strengthen’s the skin’s natural barrier. It’s glowing skin in a bottle.”
“The change in the season can really throw off the way the skin functions, so a lightweight moisturiser that can balance the skin and control oil is a must.”
“I love it when a product can make me look like I’ve had hours of uninterrupted, restful sleep! This eye cream has been clinically proven to calm puffiness and reduce the appearance of dark circles and fine lines and improve elasticity. If it’s good enough for Kate Hudson, it’s good enough for me!”
“I really like my skin to feel fresh in the spring, and the best way to achieve that is with fresh ingredients. Mint and white tea are an amazing combination because they’re able to hydrate dry skin as well as keeping oily skin types under control. This product also has an amazing mattifying effect- perfect for warmer weather.”
“This product is a new favourite of mine, and it’s worked wonders for my eyelashes. It uses pure Castor oil to encourage thick, long eyelashes and it can be used to help grow new eyebrow hairs in areas that have been over-tweezed- something I think we’re all a bit guilty of!”
One of the biggest challenges I’ve encountered when it comes to natural-skincare-sceptics is that they believe that toxin free beauty products simply won’t work. This couldn’t be further from the truth, and one of my new favourite skincare brands is going to get rid of that stigma for good.
Juniper is a skincare range that is both therapeutic-grade and practitioner-only, which ensures that the medicinal levels of the ingredients in their products perform at their very best. Their products are high performing, yet they contain absolutely no synthetic preservatives or chemicals!
Australian made in their own facility in Sydney’s Northern beaches, Juniper are also committed to the prevention of animal cruelty.
Juniper’s range is particularly beneficial for those prone to common skin issues including psoriasis, these beautiful skincare products are effective as well as being really gentle. Their Sensitive Cleansing Lotion is one we often recommend because it uses gentle ingredients including Rosehip and Avocado to cleanse the skin. Follow it up with their Calming Rose-Otto Mist to reduce inflammation and erase redness!
Their teen range is just as fabulous as their sensitive skin range, as it makes it super simple to ease tweens and teens into a great skincare routine, as well as making sure they aren’t packing any nasty toxins onto their beautiful young skin!
@wynterwolfe “I’ve developed acne as an adult. Can you offer some tips on getting my skin under control? I want to look young, but this is ridiculous!”
When it comes to hormonal breakouts, it’s always best to use a combination of prevention and treatment together. To help prevent breakouts it’s important to start with a good cleanser for acne prone skin. I love the
@bhuviyer “What is the correct way to apply face oils and serums for maximum absorption by the skin?”
Facial serums and oils are a wonderful addition to your skin care routine and are best used to target specific skin issues such as pigmentation, oil control, fine lines and hydration. After cleansing, a toner swept over the skin on an organic cotton pad is the best way to remove any dead skin cells that can block the serums from absorbing. Choose a serum or oil to suit your skin’s needs. For example, the
@that_house_on_the_hill “Products for hyper pigmentation? I know it’s common and nothing to be ashamed of, but it embarrasses me terribly!”
When looking for natural products to reduce the appearance of pigmentation, ingredients like Vitamin E and Trans-Retonic Acid are great!
“Quillaja Bark is a clinically tested sebum control active shown to help reduce acne lesions by up to 62%*”
@jmac_attack “What are the best eco buys for THAT time of the month? Especially to combat breakouts, bloating and cramps!”
There’s nothing worse than menstrual bloating and hormonal breakouts! When it comes to that time of the month, I recommend using a natural tea that helps aid digestion and reduce bloating.is perfect for this as is contains Dandelion and Juniper Berry to reduce water retention and alleviate digestive issues. Cramps are another uncomfortable symptom that can be relieved with the help of Magnesium Salts! I recommend taking a soothing bath using . Made with pure Magnesium Chloride flakes, these salts help to relieve aches, pains and muscle cramping. For more tips on combating bloating .
hormone disruption and other health issues and very easily avoided by swapping to natural and organic alternatives.
@kazcorco “What is a great organic ‘do all product’ for travelling? I have a big trip planned next year and I want to pack light!”
I have so many multi purpose products that I absolutely love for travelling! One of these is the
@kirdyjane “What’s the best way to deal with congested skin? Since my second pregnancy, my skin has changed a lot and my pores are driving me crazy!”
Congested skin is a common problem that can often be made worse by overuse of physical exfoliants! For a gentle exfoliating cleanse I recommend using AHAs which remove clogged, dead skin without leaving it damaged! While clearing out congested skin, AHAs also help to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pigmentation and brighten the complexion. One of my favourites is
@kateannereid “We hear about how we should avoid parabens, but why exactly?”
Parabens are just one of thousands of chemicals used in beauty and skincare products. They are added to preserve products so they can stay on department store shelves for up to 10 years. Parabens have been linked to

lipstick I realised they really were just ‘oils, butters and waxes, colours and flavours’ and there were much healthier alternatives to use.
I am not makeup junky who came to creating a natural beauty business, I am someone passionate about making beauty products that feed your whole body... from the outside in and inside out! And I love the transformational power of a lipstick, how multisensory it is. In one little moment it takes you to swipes your lips you feel and look like a new woman. That’s pretty powerful stuff!
How did you make the switch to an organic lifestyle, in not only your beauty routine but your home life?
I grew up with an organic lifestyle ....except for beauty products so that tells us something about the natural beauty revolution we are
Could you begin by telling us a bit about your background? How did you make your way into the beauty industry and where did that passion for beauty and for natural products come from?
Food has been my passion since I was a little girl stirring the porridge pot. I wanted to be a chef but also wanted to go to university, so I combined the two and studied food and nutrition. In the late 80’s I worked with an extraordinary businesswoman and caterer Norma Willis who pioneered fine food catering in Sydney, it was at the time when Sydney was making its mark in food with the likes of Neil Perry and Tetsuya Wakuda. We’d cook for kings and queens and wealthy people – I saw a life I never knew existed. I was a country girl with a big heart and love of the outdoors.
Putting 100% of my energy into doing something has always been a trait of mine so having kids was no different. I threw myself into motherhood and became a stay at home mum, the desire to ‘stay in touch’ meant I helped a friend out who was building a beauty business around 2006. It was then that I saw how lipstick was made. I was fascinated – the ingredients that were used were ‘unrecognisable’ yet we ‘ate lipstick’, this was one of my main motivators!
The seed was planted for a new business..... I could make makeup from real food as it was crazy we were putting crap on our skin – we were totally unaware of the consequences. When I researched the ridiculously long sounding chemical ingredients used to make

I have a very simple beauty routine, driven by the demands of my business and private life – I just do not have time to use lots of products and prefer to spend time travelling and getting outdoors than in the bathroom!
I just love your beautiful home in particular your amazing kitchen! Can you tell us about your home? What inspired you during the decorating process?
Our home is our haven, our retreat and a place we as a family like to spend as much time as possible in. It was architecturally de
going thru now! Living in harmony with nature and keeping things real is what I believe has enabled me to do what I do: build a success businesses, be content whilst taking time out to raise my family, stay calm, healthy and energised whilst I juggle all my hats wife, mother, daughter, businesswoman and friend.
25 years ago my husband introduced me to yoga and I have applied the philosophy ever since. My week day ritual, no matter what or where is to start the day with a walk (with hand weights) and stretching. It clears my mind and charges my metabolism so I stay in shape. I am lucky because I can cook and have an excellent understand on what is in food and what it can do for your body, this combined with cooking skills meant I didn’t cut corners with eating processed food – it was easy to eat well, simply. The same applied when I was out and about – I knew what to look for. We are so lucky now as healthy food and advise is available everywhere. The trick is to work out what is important to you and establish a repertoire and routine that works for you and your family.
And my beauty routine. This is going to sound strange but again my approach to makeup has been unpinned my husbands opinion. He loves me for who I am – he loves my energy and vitality and the real me not someone who is overly made up so he can’t recognise them. So my philosophy on a ‘healthy natural glow’ is not a fashion statement – it’s real life. And that does not mean I don’t like a bright lipstick – it just means I take care and use one that is 100% natural.

signed and built in 1950’s and is still original. We have been here for 23 years – no one wanted it back then as it had a flat roof with pebbles and was perched on a cliff without the standard pool and grassed backyard.
My philosophy is about creating a space that is as simple, beautiful and inspiring with as little effort as possible so it you can enjoy living in it. All of our floors are wood and everything is built in, in wood. That means we don’t need much other furniture. Over time we have collected ‘things’ like paintings, sculpture, decorations, a chair from our travels so everything has a meaning. It gives soul to our space.
My kitchen – the heart of our home where I spend so much time cooking food, developing beauty and food recipes and supervising kids homework! We lovingly redesigned it over 20 years ago and still today it is in keep with the house and design styles of today. I think this is because I spent a lot of time working out what I needed and how it would flow and how to keep it in keeping with a 1950’s feel – contemporary not retro. By combining the original wood with stainless steel and having lots of bench space and storage it has stood the test of time. A central bench means everyone gathers round and can pause for a natter or help out without getting in the way.
Do you have a favourite room in the house? Can you tell us about the space and what is it about that space that you love so much?
Yes – I love our lounge room. So much thought must have gone into the design, I
think the architect must have approached the space with a single question ‘how do I want someone to feel when they enter’. And the feeling you get is mix of inspiration, soaring high, a creative energy but then at the same time there is something really solid and calm. It is like the room changes with your mood. The space has not changed in um 23 years. The coffee table was made by my husband, and the leather lounge and chairs and are still the original furniture we moved in here with. It pays to take your time to the right piece and to think long term with what you require so we are not contributing to landfill and wasting earth’s precious resources. It also gives you a sense of serenity by being happy with what you have.
What are some changes that our readers can make to lead a more organic lifestyle?
It is so important to get your mindset right first and not treat the change as a simple swap but as an exciting adventure that will continue for life.
Start with decluttering and simplifying your life. That in itself is a massive psychological break thru; the serenity that comes with stopping and looking at what you have accumulated and automatically buy or do is rewarding. It is a biggy tho – so look at what areas you need to address such as consumables (kitchen, bathroom, laundry, garden shed) and what everyone does with their time and see where you can cut back.
Finally, could you please sum up your philosophy on beauty in just a few sentences?
There is nothing more beautiful than a woman who is herself; who has discovered what she loves in life and in doing so effortlessly pours her heart and soul into what she chooses to do. When a woman is happy with who she is, she is empowered with courage and confidence to highlight not hide her true self with too much makeup.

You have two young children how have you incorporate natural products into their lives?
First and more most with what they eat – we have always eaten breakfast and dinner together so they have a good understanding of what real food and good eating habits are. If you don’t buy it then it can’t get eaten. They eat clean, real food, minimally processed so high in fibre, low in added sugars and definitely no artificial colours flavours or preservatives but I don’t make a fuss of it if they are out and about with friends.

Could you begin by telling us a bit about your background? How did you make your way into the beauty industry and where did that passion come from?
My background is in traditional and natural medicine. I’ve always had a particular fascination with botany and plant medicine with a belief and philosophy steeply rooted in their history of feeding, nurturing healing. Essentially as human beings, our biology is the same.
I married a hairdresser in my twenties. We owned a couple of successful salons in Brisbane and I was looking to diversify the business and offer additional services so I studied beauty therapy.
You were practicing as a natural therapist before you launched your own line. What inspired you to create your own range?
This sounds so clichéd but I was looking for a range that I could use on myself and my clientele. At that time, as opposed to now, there wasn’t organic certification for skincare or cosmetics. I decided to study cosmetic chemistry to understand more. Looking back I guess I was a bit of a pioneer. I recognised a niche and created one of Australia’s first certified organic brands. There wasn’t anyone to turn to for assistance with green chemistry and certified organic raw materials were very limited so it was arduous and challenging to say the least.
One of the reasons I recently rebranded recently was so that I could incorporate some of the amazing ingredients that have since become available.
As savvy women and men are (finally!) making the shift towards organic products, we are seeing more and more “organic” beauty brands pop up. Can you tell us a bit about what makes Mukti Organics unique?
Because the brand has been established since 2000, we have a loyal and dedicated customer base. Every one of our clients is valuable and important to me. I personally respond to emails and concerns. I love that what I do is making a positive difference in someone’s life. There’s nothing more fulfilling than that.
We have a three pronged approach or SEO as I like to call it. Sustainable, Ethical and Organic.
Our philosophy is Inspired by Nature™ and has evolved from sourcing certified organic native Australian extracts with exceptional

Fusing her fascination with botany with an affinity for the beauty industry, Mukti leapt into the beauty business and her eponymous brand was born. With no corporate background, Mukti’s learning has evolved with her company. A firm believer in hard work as well as trial and error, Mukti’s holistic approach to business and passion for toxin-free beauty make her a powerful force in the ever-growing natural beauty industry. I chatted to Mukti about her beauty background and what sets Mukti Organics apart!
I had my daughters in my early twenties when I started this business. As a single mother, it was challenging keeping all the balls in the air. Youthful energy, tenacity and resilience plus an innate belief that I would succeed kept me driving my dream and passion forward. I didn’t have anyone to fall back on financially so there wasn’t an option.
Sometimes there’s an emotional price to pay for being busy and not always available but I have a very real and open relationship with both my daughters. They’re old enough to reason with now and they appreciate what it takes to create something from scratch.
Can you sum up your philosophy on beauty and skincare for us in just a few sentences? What would be your advice to anyone thinking of making the switch to organic products?
What goes in your body and on in your mind and body is equally as important as what you put on your skin. Eat clean and healthy, meditate, exercise, have a nature connection and laugh every single day especially at yourself.
I believe organics is the key to a sustainable future. If you want to be an eco-activist and make a difference, the first step is to set a rule of only buying organic for your household. Yes, it’s more expensive but you can’t put a price on the earth or your health and the economies of scale will shift when the balance shifts.
characteristics. Our indigenous plants are potent receptacles brimming with an abundance of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and bioactive constituents. Each product contains its own unique synergy that addresses a particular skin type or concern and delivers superior results and functionality.
I refuse to make label claims and be misleading with marketing so all the ingredients in each formulation have a purpose and are in the products at viable percentages. I am hands on with all the formulating. Each one of my “babies” has to be the best it can be. I want the products to work and make a difference.
We use biophotonic glass for all our facial care packaging. Its technology dating back to the ancient Egyptians. It’s the safest and most optimal vessel for skin care products as it energises, protects and preserves the products. It actually has the ability to change the resonance of what is inside so that it’s the same hertz as the human nervous system.
You have a beautiful family of your own. What have they taught you and how do you balance having a family with running Mukti Organics?
I make sure I have a balanced lifestyle. I begin my day with mediation and exercise. I’m addicted to both. It’s not an effort or a have to, it just makes me feel better and operate more effectively. I eat fresh, organic, healthy produce and surround myself with supportive friends.

Golikidis - Little Innoscents
Frustration and desire for completely chemical free skin care for children, is what drove Antonette Golikidis to create her certified organic children’s skincare range, Little Innoscents. Aiming to provide their customers with healthy and environmentally friendly products, Little Innoscents is hydrating, nourishing and soothing for you children. Following her AusMumpreneur of the year win in 2010, Antonette’s love for organic skincare continues to flourish. We caught up with the founder of Little Innoscents to share with you her top tips for keeping your children’s skin healthy.
What are some of the most common skincare misconceptions that you have come across?
The one that stands out for me is when companies label their products as “pure, natural and organic”, when they may in fact only contain a few essential oils that are organic. The remaining are harsh synthetic chemicals or preservatives that they promote as organic. These formulations often have less than 2% organic content! This really frustrates me.
What is one piece of parenting advice that you value most?
My mum told me once that it’s not worth worrying about the little things, as you will spend your life making mistakes and screwing up. As long as your intentions are always true, that’s what counts.
Why is using natural skincare products so important for children?
I often try to explain that while the symptoms of some skin irritations can be cleared up quite quickly with creams that are riddled with synthetic active ingredients (such as cortisone), they cannot be controlled unless suitable skincare products are continuously used to maintain good, healthy skin. This means that unless the skin is healthy, the symptoms will always reappear! Our products prevent the symptoms by making the skin healthier rather than trying to cure the problem! We believe that the true essence of why our range works is our combination of certified organic ingredients.
What are some of Little Innoscents’ star products?
My absolute favorite product would have to be our winter Blues Balm, which has no mineral oil, turpentine or petroleum in it. It’s filled with nourishing beeswax and essential oils! You can put this dynamite product over the chest, back and soles of the feet to help littlies breathe easier and feel more comfortable. Best of all, the entire family can use it!
During the Summer months we are constantly giving bubs their drinking cups, but as the weather cools down we often think it’s not as important to keep them hydrated. However, this is the time that their bodies need more hydration than ever!
The skin needs extra nourishment and protection at this time, as the skin retains less moisture because of the cooler, drier air. The same happens indoors as the heater goes on and begins to dehydrate the skin further! So lots of hydrating with beautiful organic nourishing oil will be just the treat that the body is looking for!
A moisturiser that is applied when the body is slightly damp after bathing, is one of the main things we can do to improve the condition and feel of our skin. Body milk should be applied over the whole body, concentrating on rough spots including the elbows, knees and feet!
While, moisturising and protecting our skin topically can help prevent dehydration, hydrating from the inside out is also excellent. Nourishing soups and stews are both warming, making them ideal meals for your bubs!
This Summer, how can parents protect their children’s delicate skin?
Before we move into Summer, the air can still be cold, windy and dry and all of this is reflected in our skin! This dryness gives way to dehydrated skin and inflammation, which is why eczema, redness, dry patches and psoriasis can also flare up at this time of year. With a few simple steps you can improve your baby’s skin in winter by getting them to.
