ABSOLUTELY PURE & NATURAL SKIN FOOD
IT ALL BEGAN...
After I had suffered from negative reactions to chemicals in common commercial skincare products. The nightmare began when I was 18 and had embarked on a ‘regular skincare routine' using a well-known supermarket brand. Within 2 weeks my skin had erupted. I changed from one brand to the next, cheapest to most expensive. Nothing worked, things got worse. I became very self-conscious, fed-up and irritated with the burning, itching, continual breakouts and redness. Medication appeared to be my last hope. That was where I drew the line.
At the time, I was studying Natural Therapies and discovering the use of additives and preservatives in food, skin and hair care products, hidden NASTIES in plastics, clothing (...just about everything else on the shelf), and their detrimental effects on our body and the environment. Through study and research, I began to experiment with developing a natural moisturizer formulation, that utilized natural plant butters, oils and other plant ingredients, all of which were scientifically proven to be the closest match to the skin’s natural sebum. My theory... "If you gave the skin something it is familiar with, the skin would balance itself. Feeding the skin plant food would nourish, soothe and heal problematic skin."
The results??.....‘Natural Skin Food’. It worked for me and has since helped hundreds of others jump off the chemical rollercoaster and to experience life with less problematic skin conditions. So in 2002, Marina's Ambrosia Products started. Within 5 years, our skincare product range evolved and expanded to satisfy the growth in demand and varying requirements of our customers.
Customers began to say.. “My skin looks great, but I still want to wear makeup. What can you suggest I use that isn’t toxic and as good as the skincare products?” And so, our Absolutely Pure Mineral Makeup range was developed. Effective foundations good for skin, eye makeup catering to sensitive eyes and amazing Vitamin E and mineral-powered lipsticks. Soon more products were flying off the shelves, word-of-mouth spread the news and our products became recognised and synonymous for quality and their benefits.
Today, we are proudly continuing to operate, research, develop and provide a large range of safe, natural, purely plant and mineral based makeup and skincare alternatives, that really work, are trusted by our customers and have them coming back!
