Popping on our radar is a new range from Goodness Natural Beauty Lab. Its point of difference is using certified organic chia seed oil as the main ingredient for its new skin care line: the oil itself is lightweight and has what the company calls a ‘perfect’ three-to-one ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 essential fatty acids.
This ratio is an ideal for skin healthy and goodness, and the chia oil is considered a ‘super-oil’ that can help nourish and hydrate skin, and promote anti-inflammatory support. A few drops, according to Goodness, ‘sorts out the essential fatty acids, minerals, B-vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and general goodness’.
The oil is extracted using a cold pressed method, which means Goodness doesn’t have to use solvents and other artificial ingredients. There’s also no artificial fragrance or colourants.
The range starts at NZ$15·95 for the 75 ml Every Week face scrub; the Every Day cream cleanser and Every Morning moisturizer, both in 75 ml packs, retail at NZ$19·95; while the two flagship products are the certified organic chia seed oil (20 ml) and the Every Evening cream (75 ml) at NZ$23·95.
It is now available in selected Farmers and New World stores in New Zealand; see goodnessproducts.com or call 64 4 473-1286 for more retail information.
