New Instore - [A'kin] Natural Hair Care

The [A’kin] natural shampoo range works differently from most other shampoos. Their sophisticated combinations of cleansers leave your hair feeling beautiful and extra clean, whilst retaining the essential natural oils and moisture.

[A'kin] natural conditioners feature a new generation GMO free rapeseed oil derived detangler that has proven superior detangling ability and is unequalled in its mildness to both your skin and eyes.

Nourishing ingredients are vitally important in any quality conditioner. [A’kin] conditioners feature generous amounts of natural nourishing ingredients - including cold pressed certified organic Australian grown avocado oil, Australian macadamia oil, Australian jojoba oil and hydrolysed wheat protein (GMO free) - all of which are rapidly absorbed to penetrate, nourish and re-moisturise each shaft of hair very effectively.

New Arrival - Green People Make Up Range

Green People has cleverly combined the minerals with plant oils and natural ingredients like Beeswax and CupuaƧu Butter to create a highly effective natural make-up range.

Mineral make-up is perfect for every skin type, even those with skin conditions like rosacea. The minerals' silky lightness provides natural, full coverage without clogging pores. Minerals reflect light off the skin, giving the illusion that it’s smoother and flawless by minimising pores and evening out wrinkles and fine lines - for a softer, more youthful and radiant appearance.

Beware! Many high street "mineral makeup" brands add tons of chemical ingredients, so it’s no longer pure, no less potentially irritating and no closer to improving your skin than any other foundation you pull off the shelf.

Why use Green People’s Eco Mineral Make-up?

• 3 in 1 - our mineral pressed powders work as a foundation, powder and sunscreen all in one!

• Matching the shade with your skin is easy – it blends seamlessly and the minerals reflect and diffuse light to allow your natural colour to shine through

• There’s no chemical ‘nasties’ - free from Parabens, Synthetic Fragrances, Petrochemicals, Silicones, Phthalates, Artificial Colours, Not Tested on Animals

Application Tips:
– Concealer – Apply using your ring finger. Pat on the skin and gently blend moving from the outside corner to the inside corner of the under eye area. Take special care not to stretch the skin!

Mineral Powders - Apply with a brush for a natural coverage and remember to build the base up rather than putting lots on at once. Apply in a buffing motion starting at the outer edges of your cheeks moving inwards, across your forehead and then down over your nose and chin.

Eyes – Smokey Eyes – Apply Fondant shadow starting at the lash line and extending just over the crease. Use Cream shadow to highlight under the eyebrow. Blend Espresso shadow from the outer corner of your lid, blend half way across the eye and up to the crease. For a more dramatic effect use the thin applicator to apply Espresso under the lower lashes. To finish the look apply Volumising mascara to both the upper and lower lashes for full, voluminous lashes.

Lips - starting at the center of the upper lip glide lipstick outward towards one corner. Bring the lipstick back to the center and run it outward to the other corner. Repeat with the lower lip. Blot with tissue to remove excess colour and even out the texture.

New Arrival - [A'kin] Natural Skin, Hair & Body Care

In 1987, Will Evans began manufacturing personal hair and skin care products. Will’s vision was to develop pure, effective, luxurious hair and skin care products from natural ingredients.

One year later Will launched the ‘Ultra Natural’ hair care range into health food stores in WA and NSW. In response to customer demand for a more effective pure range of haircare products, [Al’chemy] was developed and test marketed in Western Australia. The new brand quickly grew from loyal customers who wanted less chemicals in their life and in 1994 [Al’chemy] was launched Australia-wide.

Will then moved from Perth to Sydney and established The Purist Company in 1997 from a small factory in Katoomba in the heart of the Blue Mountains. During this time, Will experimented and refined his formulations until he was satisfied that The Purist Company products combined the latest in scientific knowledge with the best ingredients nature can supply.

In 1998, body washes were launched into the Australian marketplace. Easy to use and gentle to the skin, the body wash was developed to replace soap and to be versatile enough to be used as a shower gel, bubble bath and a gentle wash for delicate clothing.

In 2002 the [A’kin] brand was launched and a variety of [A’kin] skin care products were sold in pharmacies and health food stores. With the ever increasing demand for natural and safe products, The Purist Company expanded its distribution base to include TVSN (Australia’s Television Shopping Network), spa retreats, online stores, complementary medical practices and beauty and hairdressing salons.

In 2004, The Purist Company spread to international markets and today exports to the UK, Hong Kong, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, Ireland, Dubai, Malaysia and the USA with a view to expanding to new markets in the future.

In 2006 The Purist Company launched in selected David Jones stores Australia-wide.

[A’kin] products are made free from sulfates, ethoxylates, parabens, propylene glycol, petrochemical cleansers, silicones, phthalates, mineral oils, DEA and artificial colours.

[A’kin] products are ingredient-rich, vegan, using certified organic ingredients where possible, 100% natural botanical aromatherapy and formulated without animal ingredients or animal testing.
