is a holistic, nutritionally packed Range - each product contains high concentrations of precious certified Organic and or Wildcrafted Botanicals. We do not use cheap fillers or any questionable chemicals instead each ingredient is chosen for its ability to nourish, rebuild and protect your skin.
Created by Herbalist and Nutritionist Nicole O'Sullivan this range is a culmination of love and respect for the incredible healing power of plants and a desire to harness in particular the unique essence of Australia's unique wild harvested botanicals.
plants have grown wildly without any interference, they develop differently as they must survive in the harshest of environments - it is here that they dont just survive - they thrive where other plants could not exist. Incredibly high levels of anti oxidants are produced to enable survival, an example of this is Terminalia Ferdinandiana or kakadu plum which is an Australian native plant that has been used extensively by indiginous Australians as both a source of food and traditional medicine. Kakadu plum contains the worlds highest levels of vitamin C -studies show the concentration of vitamin C in kakadu plum to be as high as 3700mg/100g (compared with rosehip 2000mg/100g or 50mg/100g for oranges). As we know, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and an essential nutrient to help slow the ageing process. Kakadu plum’s medicinal properties are exceptional. It contains phytochemicals such as gallic and ellagic acids. Gallic acid has anti-inflammatory , antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal activities, as an anti oxidant it protects skin cells from free radical damage. Ellagic acid encourages elasticity & suppleness in aged skin.
Organically cultivated plants are nutritionally superior to conventionally grown plants and contain no harmful chemical pesticide residues. In some cases organically grown botanicals are the appropriate choice when there is any risk of losing a species.
Unique to Australia Botanicals
The Unique Australian Botanicals we use are acquired through a network of leading Australian bio-prospectors, organic/bio-ethically established growers and/or wild harvested within communities in remote locations.
Australian plants survive extreme climates and conditions that influence the concentration of potent bio-actives they store as stated above in the example of wild harvested kakadu plum.
The Company that provides our extracts uses a unique and superior "cellular - level" extraction that is fresh, clean, and does not compromise the bio-matrix integrity of the fruit or plant; unlike older methods where the raw material is often left fermenting and breaking down.
Independant analysis by Southern Cross University shows unprecedented levels of potent bio actives and ORAC results (International Anti-oxidant rating) on their Australian native extracts that are astounding, with results out performing industry standards like Vitamin E, Orange Juice, Green Tea, Goji berry etc by 6 – 1000 times in some cases.
Kakadu Plum contains extremely high levels of Vitamin C and is used in skincare for this reason, however Vitamin C is notoriously unstable and dissipates rapidly in solution questioning whether the full benefits can actually be delivered in many products. Independent scientific analysis reports that the advanced extraction process used by our supplier delivers a natural source of highly stable Vitamin C so that our products can deliver the full benefits of this superior antioxidant.
Wildcrafted Organics use these innovative, science backed, nutritionally superior extracts in high concentrations so that our products deliver the skin loving bio actives needed for healthy, radiantly beautiful skin.
is the sustainable harvesting of plants from their natural or wild habitat for food or medicinal purposes. It applys to uncultivated plants where ever they might be found and is not necessarily limited to wilderness areas. Ethical considerations are often involved such as protecting endangered species with care taken to only remove a few plants, flowers, or branches, to maintain its existence in the natural environment.
As a herbalist living in the beautiful countryside of Mudgee I wild harvest both dandelions and St Johns Wort from pristine fields that are free from pesticides and pollution, I then infuse them into organic, nutritive, skin loving oils like rice bran or grapeseed oil. I use these infusions along with other precious botanical ingredients to wildcraft my skincare range. It is also very important to me that the products feel and smell as beautiful as the flowers do, that they are addictive and pleasurable as they nourish your skin.
