Featured Maker: Yvonne Mason - Skin Organics
Posted on 10 April 2017
Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to read our article, I’m Yvonne, Skin Organics formulator and founder. Skin Organics is an Australian owned and operated business located in Woombye on the Sunshine Coast. Our face and body oils are 100% natural plant derived actives designed to nourish, protect and rejuvenate the face, body, hair and nails.
I first became interested in anti-ageing as a young girl. I can remember going up to my grandmother and asking her what all the lines were on her face, she smiled at me and said they were character lines… I remember saying to her at the time that she must have been a real character to have so many lines!... and so started my interest in reducing the signs of ageing.
Fast-forward a few years ... at age 52 I was finding my skin to be very dehydrated with deep forehead wrinkles, pronounced crows feet, eye bags and uneven skin tone and texture ... I was showing the signs of premature ageing. I tried literally hundreds of products but nothing gave me what I was looking for... younger looking skin.
"My skin improves day by day ..."
So, after years of research and formulation I developed my own skin care label... Skin Organics. The products had to be as natural as possible, I am definitely not one for botox, injectables or going under the knife, dermabrasion or laser. Skin Organics Natural Hydrating Oil is just that... NATURAL... no added chemicals or fillers, just 100% plant actives, I refer to it as my "ageless ageing" oil. Invisible Wrinkles Serum is aloe vera based, so very moisturising and the cork oak bark extract lifts and tightens the skin while the hyaluronic acid plumps and hydrates ... Today, at 59 years young, my skin looks softer and more hydrated today than 7 years ago and continues to improve day by day....
We now have a range of 4 very effective anti-ageing products, all of which are produced in small batches and are formulated and bottled by hand, this keeps the oils and serum fresh and activated.
1. Skin Organics Natural Hydrating Oil
This is an intensely moisturising and hydrating oil which leaves the skin feeling soft, moist and nourished while fine lines and wrinkles are visibly smoothed. The oil offers regenerative benefits to the skin, improves skin flexibility and provides anti-oxidant protection. The formula is fast absorbing and suitable for all skin types and can be used on the face, body, hair and nails.
2. Skin Organics For Men Oil
This oil has been specifically designed for men who want to look after their skin, hair and beards but don’t have a lot of time for maintenance. This pure, multi-tasking blend of 100% natural active botanical oils quickly penetrates to deliver intensive moisture and hydration, leaving the skin and hair with a rejuvenated appearance. Skin Organics For Men is a light-weight oil which is easily absorbed into the skin and doesn’t leave any greasy residue. Daily shaving can prematurely age the skin, applying the oil to your face prior to wet shaving will make the blades glide easier therefore reducing the drag on your skin. You can even try shaving without using shaving foam or gel, just allow the oil to penetrate for 30 seconds before wet shaving. Apply the oil as an after shave moisturiser and hydrator. Skin Organics For Men also softens hard to manage beard hairs.
3. Skin Organics Foot And Heel Oil
Skin Organics Foot And Heel Oil brings rough, dry and cracked heels back to life. This highly effective non-greasy, quick absorbing unique formulation re-hydrates and repairs damaged skin with noticeable results within a few days of continuous use. Apply to feet, heels, knees and elbows or wherever flakiness and dryness occurs. The soles of our feet and palms do not contain oil glands unlike the rest of the body, so they need oil applied in order to keep them soft and smooth.
4. Skin Organics Invisible Wrinkles Serum
Our Invisible Wrinkles Serum works like an instant face lift to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles within minutes. It improves skin elasticity and re-energises the skin creating a firmer, smoother and more youthful complexion. The serum also evens skin tone, tightens enlarged pores, hydrates and nourishes the skin to assist in reducing the formation of new wrinkles.
My partner Gary and I work full time in the business attending to internet sales on a daily basis and a market or two on the weekends… I love having customer contact and being able to impart my knowledge of the products to consumers who have ageing concerns. What keeps me motivated are our customers… the many kind comments, testimonials and emails I receive stating how our products have made a positive impact in their lives.
At Skin Organics we use only the highest quality plant derived actives such as Argan oil, Marula oil, Palmarosa oil, Pomegranate seed oil, Raspberry seed oil, Camellia seed oil, Aloe Vera gel and Quercus suber bark extract (Suberin). Even the hyaluronic acid we use is made from a bio-fermentation process using glucose that is corn derived, NOT from the usual animal extraction method using rooster combs.
The products we produce are designed around our customers. We receive many requests to formulate products for particular requirements. We believe that our current 4 products cover these … we listen to our customers and that is an important virtue in today's competitive market and one of the reasons I believe Skin Organics is so successful … we are out in the market and hear first hand what customers want.
In February this year we launched Skin Organics For Men Oil and Skin Organics Foot And Heel Oil, they have filled a niche in the market that customers were looking for… men are becoming more aware of skin care but don’t have a lot of time to fuss and our mens oil provides everything they could want in a product… moisturiser, hydrator, pre-wet shave oil, after shave oil, beard and hair softener. The foot and heel oil fills a big void that was in the market… designed specifically and effectively to bring rough, dry and cracked feet back to life.
