When the 50 something old delivery man arrived at my door with my Mukti products, bragging about how great the company is and how his wife swears by them, I thought I must have a pretty good package in my hands!
The Mukti Organic Skin Care company, named after it’s founder herself, has been around for over a decade, and has grown from a small organic beauty movement in Australia, to a world renowned company. “Raising awareness of safe skincare skincare practices and creating organic natural products that actually work is a driving force for me every day” Mukti says. “By providing consumers viable and clean beauty alternatives, I am helping them to protect themselves and the environment as organic products are not only safe, they are also biodegradable and the methods to produce them are sustainable.”
On trying the bath and shower gel for the first time (pictured above), I immediately recognised that the smell coming from the bottle was pure and simple Grapefruit juice, as if I were holding the fruit itself up to my nose. Infused with an array of other organic plant extracts, the wash foams lightly, then leaves behind a fresh antiseptic sensation, without the use of harsh chemicals. I love the fact that it is safe to use on both dry mature skin, and on babies, which really proves it’s point of being both natural and gentle.
I’ve also been using the pink grapefruit hand and body lotion for over a week. I once heard a skin specialist talk at a health retreat, and she asked the question, “Would you eat it? If the answer is no, then you shouldn’t be putting it on your skin either!” With key ingredients of shea butter, aloe vera, pink grapefruit, mandarin, and coconut, I feel quite safe that I am not ingesting anything into my pores that I wouldn’t put in my mouth. And this is exactly what this stuff does, it infiltrates through the skin, leaving it soft and nourished, without any greasy oil effect.
To top all the Mukti goodness off, a big plus in my opinion is that their products are cruelty free, Australian made, and have Organic Certification by the Organic Food Chain.
