Age Defying Body Care

Pomegranate, nature’s super fruit, is fast becoming the must have skin care ingredient and is expected to herald in a new era for the Australian skincare industry due to its incredible healing, anti-ageing and transformational qualities.

Leading Australian body care company, Essential Stuff is the producer of Australia’s first dedicated non artificial pomegranate skin care range and is aiming to challenge the established market leaders with its revolutionary unique blend of pomegranate with 100 percent active ingredients.

According to Essential Stuff Director, Marie Otty, the pomegranate is considered by many as the future of the skincare industry due to its very high levels of antioxidants, making it a far better alternative to the widely adopted Aloe Vera products which have dominated the market for many years.

“The pomegranate has antioxidant levels that are so high, they rival the amounts found in green tea,” said Mrs Otty. “When applied to the skin, it helps it to retain moisture, stimulate collagen production as well as cell regeneration which strengthens and brightens the skin.

“When you compare this to the less active effects of Aloe Vera, the benefits of using pomegranate extract on the skin are simply too great to be ignored.”

The Essential Stuff range includes Pomegranate & Rosewood Hand Cream, Pomegranate & Lemon Fusion Body Wash, Pomegranate & Citrus Burst Body Butter and Pomegranate & Peppermint Foot Balm, with prices starting from $23.70.

The products contain many antioxidants, which act in conjunction with vitamins B and C to rejuvenate the skin, reverse the signs of ageing, protect the body from free radicals and improve the immune system.  The products are also fast acting due to their 100 percent active ingredients unlike competitor products that are often made up of over 90 percent water.

According to Mrs Otty, “Essential Stuff is Australian made and owned with no artificial colours, fragrances or animal testing. Australian’s now have a viable natural and effective alternative to the current generation of skin care products which simply aren’t up to the job.”

The Essential Stuff range is available online and from specialist distributors, more information can be found at
