Australia’s 10 Best Organic and Natural Products

best organic products

So what the hell is propylene glycol, formaldehyde, parabens, dioxane, ethylene oxide and acetaldehyde?! They are chemicals you won’t find in my bathroom cupboard, but are they in yours? It is now time to treat your skin, body and home the same way you make choices about the food you eat.

There is a common misconception in relation to the use of the word ‘Organic’. Currently in Australia and across the world there is little regulation surrounding the use of the word ‘Organic’ as companies can, and do mislead customers. The everyday Organic products commonly found on the supermarket shelves are far from organic, natural, safe pure and pesticide and chemical-free.

Ok ok, I will stop scaring you. You get the idea. It’s just time to make informed choices.

The best thing about only using certified organic skincare, supplements, cleaning products and homewares is the superior quality compared to conventional products. Bonus! Safer and better quality! Win-Win!

I have deeply researched Australia’s best organic and natural products and put them to the test! I love these products as part of my daily health and beauty routine and so will you! I also teach my A-list models and actresses about the dangers of constant exposure to chemical laden makeup and skincare and they just love how much better their skin and wellbeing is after switching.

I must mention that I have NOT been paid for recommending these products, the winners of each category have won me over for a reason:

They ALL pass my strict criteria:

 
1. They must smell, feel and/or taste amazing
2. Must be Certified Organic (they don’t just have one organic ingredient and 10 other toxic ones which can happen!)
3. Must come from a renewable, sustainable source and be environmentally friendly
4. Must not be tested on animals
5. Must be good for your health and provide clear benefits to your body
6. Are made in Australia with high-quality local ingredients and/or have fair worker ethics internationally.

 

So here are the winners!

Best Body Moisturiser

The Divine Company Moisturising Hand & Body Lotion

 
The Divine By Therese Kerr Certified Moisturising Hand & Body Lotion feels and smells amazing! It contains the highest quality certified organic and natural ingredients. Rooibos Tea, Macadamia, Rosehip and Aloe Vera are combined with the pure essential oils of Lemon Myrtle, Cedarwood and Rose Geranium. Free from the phthalates, fragrances, endocrine disrupting and other synthetic chemicals commonly found in hand lotions.

Why I Love It:
I keep the beautifully designed bottle by my bathroom sink. This product is a lotion rather than a cream so it leaves my skin silky smooth, non-greasy, replenished and literally smelling divine!

Best Coconut Oil Product

Coconut Magic Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil

 
Based in Kingscliff, Northern NSW, Jenni Madison’s collection of not only pure coconut oil but coconut oil products are hands down the best quality I have found. Her coconut oil is made amongst high quality soil, from her certified organic farmed coconuts in the tropics of Thailand. Her fair trade process is complete from raw materials to the pure oil in a jar within just a few hours. The unique extraction method uses no heat and no chemicals.

Why I Love It:
I use Coconut Magic coconut oil for cooking as well as moisturiser if I have accidentally been in the sun too long. The Coconut Magic Raw Energy Bars are also a great go-to when i’m busy. They taste great and are made all natural with only whole food and superfood ingredients with nothing added and definitley pass my criteria testing. They are non-GMO, gluten, dairy and sugar-free. Yum! I might go have one now, just the thought is making me hungry!

Best Chocolate

Pana Chocolate

 
Pana Chocolate is a raw, certified organic, fair trade, vegan chocolate handmade in Melbourne. Made with organic nuts, goji berries, coconut flakes and pure 100% essential oils. A guilty pleasure that’s not so guilty after all.

Why I Love It:
The mint flavour of Pana Chocolate is just heaven really. You need 1-2 squares of this chocolate to fully satisfy any chocolate craving. I tried the Rose flavour in Melbourne which was amazing but can’t seem to find it in Queensland. Probably for the best though! I would definitely recommend the Mint or Orange flavour. You’re welcome.

Everescents Organic Remedy Treatment

 
Made in Coolum on the Sunshine Coast, Everescents is high in healing protein and certified organic ingredients and formulas that address your hair needs and providing you clean, safe, salon quality good hair days!

Why I love it:
I had a lot of hair damage from my straightener and curling wand but after just a few days of using the Everescents Organic Sweet Orange Blossom Remedy Treatment, my hair was so much stronger and healthier! The whole collection smells great, is great for you, enhances the manageability of your hair and is full of natural goodness.

Best Organic Skincare Range

KORA Organics by Miranda Kerr

 
Ok so probably my favourite beauty product I own is the Kora Organics Balancing Rose Mist. Spritzing this mist over your face after a shower makes your skin feel amazing and is a must have while travelling. I used to dread aeroplanes just because of how my skin would be after a long flight – but this moisturises your face and keeps you feeling so fresh.

Why I Love It:
The beautiful Miranda’s whole skincare range is stunning and definitely ticks all my above essential criteria. I’m now using the anti aging products which are more designed for us over-30s women and my skin has never been better!

Best Organic Spray Tan

Eco Tan

 
The Eco Tan range was developed by the beautiful Sonya Driver on the Gold Coast. The Eco Tan range of self-tanners and spray tans are the only tanning products which are certified organics and completely safe of any nasty chemicals.

Why I Love It:
My beauty therapist Frida gives me regular Eco Tan Spray Tans and the colour is just perfect. They are not sticky and the colour is bronzed and brown, definitely not orange – it is actually made from organic cacao. It doesn’t smell and I am rest easy knowing that I am not covering myself in any chemicals.

Best Superfood Supplement

 
best organic and natural products

Yoga Food. Organic Complete Superfood

 
Aussie Dr Sean Kirke developed Yoga Food out of an unfulfilled desire to find one product that had all the ingredients he was searching for in one certified organic superfood product.

Why I Love It:
I came across Yoga Food from a friend’s recommendation and I’m now so glad I tried it. It is my go-to all in one addition to my smoothies. It saves me having to buy all my nutritional supplements separately so it’s great while I’m travelling. It tastes great and with the proteins, super greens, antioxidant blend, omegas, pre & probiotics, trace minerals and digestive enzymes in one easy product I add it to my coconut water after a hot yoga class when I need a quick nutrition replenish.

The Best Coconut Water

 
best organic and natural products RawC-Celebrity-Trainer
 

Natural Raw C Coconut Water

 
So many people see me drinking Natural Raw C coconut water and ask if it tastes good. They are always apprehensive to try it and I admit a few years ago when I was introduced to it in New York, I was too. I have tried dozens of brands and I always come back to liking the taste of this one the best. Luckily co-Founder and Chef Pete Evans does not compromise on quality and it shows with the best tasting coconut water also easily passing my strict criteria.

Why I Love It:
As well as the great taste I also love their new Vegan Protein and Cacao coconut water, it is a fantastic after-workout drink high in protein and electrolytes.

Best Organic Lip Balm

 
suvana-paw-paw

Suvana Organic Paw Paw & Honey Balm

 
I used to just go for any lip balm like chapstick or the red tube paw paw, but I now know that the most popular lip balms on the market are petroleum jelly based. Would you use your cars petrol or oil on your skin? We all know what the answer to that is… NO! It’s not safe. Petroleum is a by-product of the oil industry and is in many beauty products because it’s a cheap thickening ingredient.

Why I Love It
This Australian made Certified Organic lip balm works like a charm and has a great subtle taste. Made from blissful coconut oil, paw paw, cocoa butter and Vitamin E I can use it regularly without worrying about eating chemicals.

Best Organic Linen

Ecolinen Bamboo Sheets

 
Ecolinen provide organic Bamboo bedding, with the bamboo grown organically on sustainable farms without any chemicals, pesticides and fertilisers. Bamboo sheets are silky smooth due the long natural threads which assist people with skin conditions by reducing the annoyance of rough fabric against irritated skin.

Why I Love It:
These sheets are so soft! Ecolinen bamboo sheets are sustainable, environmentally friendly and have an amazing ability to pull moisture away from your body, making it a great choice when I am home in Australia in Summer. Also, less chemicals are used in the production of bamboo sheets than conventional cotton and with its soft and gentle feel, bamboo is much better for people with sensitive skin.
