So how does it work?
It works on the like dissolves like theory. Your cleansing oil soaks deep into your pores to naturally & gently dissolve bacteria & dirt that is clogging up your pores. It then replaces this clogged up sebum with natural, soothing & healing plant oils that help to replenish your skin & natural radiance.
It really is magic in a bottle. Best thing of all is that after several weeks of using this method you will notice any blackheads disappearing & your pores diminishing. It is truly that magic if you consistently use the method each evening.
To make the oil cleansing method even more effective I also use our Konjac sponge to remove the oil. It adds a gentle exfoliation factor that helps to take the method to the next level.
Hibiscus flowers have so many great anti-aging, firming, skin lifting benefits that we couldn't wait to slough it all over our bodies.
This scrubs secret weapon is the skin power house Hibiscus which is filled with natural AHA's to slough away old skin cells & anti oxidants called anthocyanocides that fight free radicals & keep your skin youthful.

It’s summer here in Australia & you can’t leave the house without some form of Sun Protection on, or you will be fryed to a crisp within minutes.
But what sun protection is safe?,
It’s not always possible or practical to wear a hat & protective clothing so finding safe ways to protect your skin from the sun is important.
Zinc Oxide is oftentimes referred to as the only safe sun protection available in a tube.
It protects your skin from the full spectrum of UVA and UVB rays making it the most comprehensive natural sunscreen ingredient currently available. It provides the best UVA ray protection of all current physical & chemical sunscreens.
But what makes Zinc Oxide truly safe is that it’s a barrier sun protectant and sits on top of your skin forming a shield between you and the rays of the sun. As long as non-nano particle zinc is used the zinc will not be absorbed by your body & remains on the surface of the skin.
The sun protection occurs through the Zinc Oxide sunscreen particles sitting on the outermost layer of your skin where they reflect and scatter the ultraviolet rays, protecting the living skin layers below. Zinc Oxide is the broadest of all the sunscreen ingredients. It protects against UVA and UVB radiation up to wavelengths of 380mm.
In addition, it is the only active sunscreen ingredient approved by the FDA for babies under six months, making it without a doubt the best and gentlest, natural sun protectant available. Zinc oxide is widely known for its skin benefits and is used as a skin protectant in many different applications because of its soothing, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. Zinc oxide is the active ingredient in many nappy rash creams, which is pretty clear evidence that it is gentle and safe for even the most sensitive of skins.
Zinc oxide occurs in nature as the mineral zincite. The Zinc Oxide we use in our range is mined from the ground and then purified via steam distillation to pharmaceutical grade, which means you could eat it if you wanted to?.
Because of a special manufacturing process, our Zinc Oxide is pH neutral and does not alter the pH of our products, ensuring it is truly gentle on the skin.
In addition to its sun protection properties, zinc as a trace mineral in itself, helps maintain collagen and elastin fibres which provide the skin with its firmness, helping in the prevention of sagging skin and wrinkles. It also links together amino acids that are needed for the formation of collagen which helps to keep our skin’s youthful appearance.
We use Zinc Oxide in our MG Naturals makeup line because it is not only gentle, safe & natural but has the added benefit of soothing anti-inflammatory & anti-microbial properties that help to heal your skin whilst providing complete broad spectrum sun protection from SPF 20 in our BB Creams to SPF 50+ in our Mineral Silk Foundation.
In our opinion you can’t do any better than Zinc Oxide.
For easy Sun Protection you can't go past our Mineral Silk Foundation Powder, its light weight, sweat & water resistant formula makes it the perfect sunscreen, try some today.
