This blog is short, sweet and colourful. Yes it’s all about the colours of natural creams, lotions and potions. If you are using a white cream, a white lotion or a clear wash, the chances are there are only refined oils and synthetic ingredients in your products. You WANT colourful cosmetics, read why…

Most cold pressed natural oils and botanicals have deep, rich, colours which is an indication of their nutritive value and naturally impart a pale or strong colour to the end product.

JINJA Skin Care proudly embraces these beautiful ingredients from mother nature in their natural, unrefined form. Here are some examples in our range.

The deep magenta colour of Hibiscus and Pomegranate Gel Cleanser is from the deep red hibiscus flowers which are infused into the water and forms part of the glycerite as well. Hibiscus (also called the botox plant) contains natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids which gently exfoliate the skin, increases skin elasticity and fights skin damage by eliminating free radicals.

The happy sunshine colours of Mandarin Sugar Scrub and Orange Blossom Face and Body Wash  come from the goodness of Sea Buckthorn oil, cold-pressed from the deep, dark antioxidant rich orange berries, well known for their anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating properties.

Moringa powder, Cold-pressed Avocado and Hempseed oils give Minted Sugar Scrub and Avocado and Hempseed oil handcrafted soap their lovely hues of green.

Gentle Blue Chamomile handcrafted soap is a pretty shade of aquamarine which comes from the high content of healing, antioxidant Chamazulene in the Blue Chamomile essential oil enhanced by a touch of blue mica which accentuates the blue/green colour.

Healing Calendula and Turmeric Balm and Soap is bright yellow (no surprises there) and is brimming with antioxidants as is the Calendula flowers, proudly and organically grown by me.

Velvet Touch Day Cream and Regenerative Night Cream vary constantly in colour from pale peach to dark apricot depending on the colour of the Organic Rosehip Seed Oil and of course the other oils influence the colour as well.

Believe me it is hard to make a white cream if you are using authentic, natural oils with all the goodness of their beta-carotene, antioxidants and polyphenols still intact. Shea Souffle Body Butter and Luscious Body Cream is as white as it gets in the JINJA range since they are mostly composed of shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil and almond oil, all of which are pale cream or white in colour.

So embrace your coloured, natural cosmetics and know that you are benefiting from their secret goodness.
