Pink Energy

The Wendy Christina Premium Skincare team hope this update finds you well, and full of energy during these fine spring days! We have been delighting in spring, with the cleansing rains and radiating sunny days. Wendy has some exciting new products dropping soon for this summer 2021 (more about that later). Meanwhile, we are elated to be spending our days creating eco-loving goodness for your skin and soul. As our energy rises, we wanted to take some time to talk about one of our energetically active ingredients: Pink Himalayan Salt, our bundle of pink energy!

Pink Himalayan Salt

This natural compound contains a plethora of over 80 minerals and elements to nourish us internally and externally. Wendy sources only high quality Pink Himalayan salt with absolutely no chemical interference to the naturally nourishing state of the salt. Our skin is our largest organ and is responsible for absorbing in beneficial nutrients and expelling or storing toxins and pollutants to avoid allowing them to enter into our bodies. This provides us skin with loving goodness, fortifying our bodies  protect us from the nasties we come into contact with. Our bodies are also energetic beings that can be filled with bountiful life-feeling energy but can also become weighed down with toxins and negative energy.

Pink Energy

This is where Pink Himalayan salt becomes our greatest asset. The purest form of salt found in the earth, it contains high levels of healing energy. It has the ability to draw out toxins thus detoxifying the body energetically and restoring the reservoirs with high energy and peace. One study found that bathing in warm water with Pink Himalayan salt for just 10 minutes can reduce fatigue, stress, pain, and increase levels of contentment and emotional health. This pink crystal is multifaceted and contains more than just detoxification as a facet. Due to its PH balancing properties and mineral rich profile, Himalayan salt also balances skin tones and prevents and treats acne. It exfoliates skin and hydrates at the same time leaving a healthy, youthful glow. The healing energy of this goddess salt offers endless benefits to those who indulge in her purity.

We have the perfect active ingredient body product to easily brighten and energise you.  It’s time to incorporate some Pink Himalayan salt into your care routine. Pink Himalayan Salt Body scrub will help you feel as free and energised as the Wendy Christina team has been feeling this spring.

kakadu plums in Indigenous hands

Welcome Spring with Kakadu Plum.

Spring is a special time of preparation and rebirth. It is a time to purify and clean, a time to venture out from hibernation and a time for excited deliberation. The dark and heavy winter is behind us. With full anticipation we can look forward to the coming days of summer. Before Summer, we welcome Spring with some help from Kakadu Plum.

Over the darker winter months, the team at Wendy Christina Premium Skincare engaged in a much needed hibernation. It was a time to heal and refocus. Perhaps you, yourself experienced something similar with the detours the world has experienced this year?

As the summer approaches and spring has us feeling fresh, we present to you vivifying Kakadu Plum!

Kakadu Plum

Native to Australia, Kakadu Plum is a key ingredient in almost all products across the Wendy Christina range. Kakadu Plum is a subtropical, deciduous tree native to Western Australia and the Northern Territory. By now, most people have heard of the superfood nature of the Kakadu Plum and its renown in natural beauty products.

The small green plum from the Kakadu contains the highest concentration of active vitamin C in the world for fruits and vegetables. If you have heard the Wendy Christina team talk to anything within the product range, you have heard about the importance of vitamin C in skin repair, regeneration, anti-aging, and all it’s wonderful benefits.

Vitamin C does not naturally occur in the body. Therefore, our bodies need to absorb it via external sources and diet. Combined with vitamin E, it is a powerful prevention elixir against free radicals and aids creation of healthy, young cells.  Free radicals are the result of damaged cells that go rogue. They continually destroy as they set off a chain reaction attacking other healthy cells.

Vitamin C reverses this reaction and instead aids to produce the following desired effects:

  • Tighter skin as collagen and elastin are rebuilt 
  • Brightened complexion
  • Reduction of pigmentation
  • Decreasing wrinkles and fine lines 

Truly potent vitamin C must have its active capacity intact.

What is active vitamin C?

Active vitamin C is naturally occurring vitamin C with its full antioxidant capacity. In its natural environment (within the plant) it is in an active state. Unfortunately, this active state is very unstable and generally loses it’s antioxidant capacity due to compound degradation when extracted from plants. Due to this, most vitamin C found in serums, supplements, and other products are actually a synthetic form of vitamin C called ascorbic acid. This synthetic form is much more stable, easier, and cheaper to harness for products. However, its antioxidant capacity is far inferior to naturally occurring vitamin C.

The quality of the extract is truly the difference between a potent anti-ageing serum or an inactive superfood listed on the ingredients label. The bottom line: not all Kakadu Plum extracts are equal.

Our owner, founder, and product formulator, Wendy Christina, sought after an ethically sourced, unique and unparalleled high quality extract.

Our natural active ingredients are extracted using a trademarked method which is superior to traditional methods. This process involves higher levels of antioxidant compounds being filtered through the cell wall without damaging the plant’s biomatrix. Our wild Kakadu Plum is harvested by hand in the Northern Territory by Indigenous communities under fair-trade work conditions.

Welcome Spring with Kakadu Plum.

Now that you are jumping out of your seat for premium capacity vitamin C, we gift you a special offer for spring 2020! Full of Kakadu Plum’s active vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and nourishing macadamia oil.  Honey and Hyaluronic acid Day and Night Moisturiser is 25% OFF when you use the code Kakadu until October 25th 2020.

wild in winter with Palmarosa

Wild in Winter: Intentionality with Palmarosa

The cold days of winter make our ocean swims colder. Our coffee seems hotter and our skin drier. The Wendy Christina Premium Skincare team loves chilly weather! To be wild in winter, we turn to the beautifully scented essential oil, Palmarosa. This is the season of bundling up, warm drinks, fireplaces and welcomed cuddles with loved ones. The late sunrises of winter inspire us to intentionally start our days in the first morning rays.

Awakenings of the body in the form of cold ocean swims, surfs, beach walks, grounding yoga or hitting the ski slopes all accompany our early morning reflections of the mind. So we encourage you, our lovely customers, to take advantage of these colder mornings and late sunrises. Wendy Christina Skincare is the nourishment for your skin. Mornings started off with gratitude, hope, and rejuvenation are the nourishment of our soul. We hope you enjoy the season.

Intentionality with Palmarosa

So why Palmarosa? During cold days, our skin needs protection from everyday elements. While we love winter, the cold air and lack of humidity often dries out skin leaving it dull and dehydrated. The chill in temperatures causes our natural occurring sebum levels to decrease. Sebum – in correct balance – protects our skin and locks moisture in. Without the nourishment it needs, skin is open to irritants and may become itchy due to dryness. Skin often develops minor bacterial infections due to the loss of protective layer and weakness in the skin barrier. Common problems from poorly nourished skin in winter include: itchy dry skin, cracked lips, exacerbation of pre-existing inflammatory skin diseases such as rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema.

Proper care is a necessity for mature or dry skin, especially during winter. This is why our highlighted essential oil ingredient of the week is Palmarosa.

Wild in Winter with Palmarosa

Palmarosa (also known as Rose Geranium) comes from a grass species native to India. The properties of Palmarosa include antiseptic, bactericide, digestive, hydrating and anti-fungal. When our skin is vulnerable in winter, using Palmarosa is the ideal tonic to protect against harmful microorganisms. This killer essential oil stimulates the regeneration of cells resulting in stronger skin on the cellular level and increased healing of scars and infections. The perfect ingredient for going wild in winter, Palmarosa is also hydrating to the skin and balances the levels of sebum.

Palmarosa is ideal for all skincare types, particularly problematic and sensitive skin. It aids conditions such as acne, dermatitis, minor skin infections, malnourished and dry skin. Our recommended winter products containing Palmarosa are:

POMEGRANATE & WHITE WILLOW BARK FACIAL EXFOLIANT

This gentle exfoliation for the face is gently detoxifying and nourishing to the skin. Sweet almond, camellia and jojoba oils are rich in omega fatty acids which can aid to nourish and assist healthy cell growth, while white willow bark and lavender oil can work to draw out impurities from the pores. Rose Geranium provides hydration and added antiseptic protection.

Currently available in 100ml & 230 ml**

MEDITATION BLEND – FACIAL MASSAGE OIL

The Meditation Blend is a facial massage oil intended to soothe and relax. It targets skin, mind, and emotions for a luxury unwind.

embrace nature's calm with chamomile

Embrace Nature’s Calm with Chamomile

Thank you to all of our customers who embrace Nature’s Calm and have supported us in these times. It is a huge blessing, and we are so very grateful! Wendy Christina Premium Skincare continues to strive for excellence in our task of developing an economical, eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and effective product. But more than that, we are striving to use our resources and our influence through this brand to move our world forward in ways that honor our planet, people, and fellow creatures. You, our customer, are the power behind us in the practical sense of providing us with our resources and by sharing us with others you contribute to our influence. So thank you, sincerely and lovingly from Wendy Christina and her team.

Today we cerebrate a herb that has been known for its healing properties for centuries:

Chamomile

While Chamomile may be “outdated” meaning it is not chatted about like the “hot”, “new”, or “trendy” skincare elements out there today, do not be fooled into believing it has lost any capacity of effectivity. Chamomile has stood the test of time and still remains known for its therapeutic properties. The most potent aspect of chamomile is that it is a relaxant. This effect corrects many different ailments.

For instance, chamomile is well known as a before bed tea to aid those in their sleep. It is a potent remedy for insomnia. In addition chamomile relieves migraines, headaches, menstrual pain, PMS, stomach pain, digestive issues, colic, even being used to relieve asthma attacks. Chamomile also prevents the growth of disease causing microorganisms and kills bacteria.

Perhaps old-fashioned, yet still a powerful therapeutic substance, chamomile applies to your skincare routine as well.

Chamomile relieves stress from the skin, reduces inflammation, and calms burns and irritations. It features in many of the Wendy Christina ranges because of its anti-inflammatory properties that soothe as well as its role to increase moisture and elasticity in the skin.

Embrace natures calm with Roman Chamomile:

Both a calming and revitalising experience, the Kakadu Plum and Green Tea Toning and Hydration mist has been formulated with many different facets in mind. A toner is a great way to rebalance pH in your skin and to replenish nutrients after cleansing . While many of us have been breathing all sorts of cleaners, sanitisers, and chemicals lately, try the inverse with this vitamin powered skin tonic. Chamomile and lavender de-stress and soothe while peppermint and witch-hazel wake up and refresh. This product is very economical and versatile. Besides its beautiful aromatherapy, this anti-oxidant rich mist also provides a dose of hydration and is an excellent setting spray for make up.

Currently available in 100ml  (or a sample size of 30ml)

Green tea and Hyaluronic Acid Eye Treatment is an essential for the delicate skin around the eye. The skin around the eye area is very thin and sensitive, often the place that is first to be damaged without adequate protection and nurturing.

Hyaluronic Acid rapidly brings hydration into this area smoothing wrinkles while Green Tea, Aloe Vera, and Pomegranate implant high levels of antioxidant rich vitamin C for collagen synthesis and relieve damage caused by free-radicals. As well as brightening the under eye area.

Anti-inflammation, calming, and improved texture are attributed to the Roman Chamomile that plays an important role in this product.

Currently available in 25ml & 45ml (or sample size of 4ml)

Feminine Fresh Fiery Ylang Ylang

Feminine Fresh Ylang Ylang

Welcoming our feminine, fresh, fiery, flirty aroma and potent antibacterial ingredient: Ylang Ylang. 

Another week has come and gone and we are full of hope. Wendy Christina Premium Skincare has spent the last few weeks presenting potent, calming, and reviving ingredients and products with antimicrobial and disinfectant properties. Now waking from our meditative healing, we anticipate a passionate re-entry into the world with Ylang Ylang.

Feminine and fresh, Ylang Ylang is an essential oil that comes from the flower of a tropical tree. It has a renowned effect on the nervous system to release tension from anger, nervous depression, and anxiety. Inhaling it may reduce the heart rate and lower blood pressure. 

Due to its passionate and feminine aroma and warming sense of security, Ylang Ylang is generally classified as an aphrodisiac. This essential oil creates a seemingly paradoxical reaction in that it removes frustration and relaxes yet invigorates passion and a fiery persona. Ylang Ylang leaves you feeling beautiful, assertive, and ready again to take on the world.

In the skincare realm, Ylang Ylang balances and softens. Ideal for both dry and oily complexions, it balances the flow of sebum production. As it contains antibacterial properties, it also seals and protects against daily pollutants in the skin. 

Here are some of our favourite Ylang Ylang infused products:

A pure & potent serum, the Kakadu Plum & Hyaluronic Acid Anti-Ageing Serum contains concentrated anti-ageing ingredients to naturally draw vitamin C into the cells. Hyaluronic Acid rapidly hydrates for reduction of wrinkles providing a plumping effect. Ylang Ylang is part of both the aroma therapy and softening and balancing moisture in the skin. The high levels of kakadu plum increases hydration, smooths wrinkles, reduces pigmentation, and acts as a free radical scavenger. Kakadu plum contains the most concentrated form of natural vitamin C in the world. Due to being an active rather than passive (synthetic) vitamin C, it maintains its antioxidant capacity.

Currently available in 45ml & 100ml

The Anti-ageing Honey and Hyaluronic Acid Day and Night Cream is an active hydrating cream that is formulated to be light on the skin, absorb quickly, and contains no photosensitive ingredients. It contains high levels of active vitamin C from Kakadu plum, aloe vera, green tea, and pomegranate which act as scavengers of free radicals, reverse sun damage, and promotes collagen synthesis. The hyaluronic acid and honey hydrate and plump the skin and hydrate on the cellular level. Ylang Ylang lends its properties to soften and balance moisture in the skin. Macadamia oil adds conditioning while being light and easily absorbable. It also aids in the healing of the skin and does not clog pores.

Currently available in 90ml & 500ml
