Miranda Kerr spills on Kora Organics' newest additions
Aussie model Miranda Kerr has had the whole radiance thing on lockdown for years. And even though genetics, diet and taking care of herself has a lot to do with her lit-from-within glow, she's also a huge advocate of organic beauty products, a passion which she has funnelled into her own range KORA Organics.
We speak to the model and newlywed about the three newest additions to the line: an aromatherapy oil, body oil and face oil.
We've seen a huge resurgence of oils in beauty in the last couple of years. What do you love about them?
The Noni Glow Face Oil is a super nourishing treatment oil that is great for all skin types and especially good for sensitive skin. It contains certified Organic Noni Extract, Rosehip Oil, Pomegranate Oil and Sea Buckthorn Oil to create a rich source of antioxidants and essential fatty acids to smooth, nourish and brighten your skin. Noni Glow Body Oil is a luxurious lightweight, multi-purpose body treatment oil that softens and replenishes skin's moisture levels leaving it healthier and more radiant.
What sets KORA Organics oils apart from the rest?
We use only the highest quality oils available and our products are all certified natural and organic through a certification body called COSMOS, so you know exactly what you are putting on your skin and where it has come from. COSMOS also ensures the ingredients have all been ethically grown, harvested and manufactured in accordance to their strict guidelines.
In addition to the oils used in KORA Organics, Noni Extract is one of the other unique points of difference. My grandmother introduced me to Noni when I was about 13 and I've been using it daily since. Noni is a superfood that supports wellness of your body both inside and out. It is high in antioxidants and contains over 100 vitamins and minerals, including high amounts of vitamins C and E. These powerful antioxidants protect your skin from environmental damage caused by free radicals, which are constantly stressing our skin and can lead to the signs of premature aging. Noni Extract is anti-ageing, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and can also help to enhance immune performance.
Another unique element that sets KORA Organics apart is that our products are all energized with Rose Quartz, a crystal believed to carry a soothing energy to encourage love and acceptance of ourselves and others. By energising our products with Rose Quartz crystal, our hope is that we infuse the vibration of love into KORA Organics and then onto our customers.
We love that you included a Heart Chakra aromatherapy oil in your range. What inspired this?
I was going through a tough time and I had this oil specially blended for me and I feel it really helped, it's like getting a warm hug. Heart Chakra Aromatherapy Oil is an aromatic wellness blend of the finest supercharged essential oils such as Rose Otto, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang and Cedarwood to invoke, nurture and empower the energies of your heart chakra.
How do you like to use the Heart Chakra aromatherapy oil?
I like to roll it onto my pressure points, on my wrists and behind my ears. The Rose Otto in it helps open the heart and mind and boosts self-esteem. Ylang Ylang aids in reducing stress while the sandalwood induces a sense of calmness. It is perfect to carry in your handbag and use throughout the day.
What's next for KORA Organics the brand? Are you developing any more categories you can talk about?
I have developed my first supplement, the Noni Glow Skin Food that is formulated to enhance the health of your skin from the inside out. It contains powerful ingredients such as Noni Extract, Acai, Blueberry, Mangosteen, Pomegranate, Matcha Green Tea, Rosehip, Chlorella and Elderberry Flower. And it comes in single serve sachets so you can easily add it to water and drink it on the go - it really restores my energy and vitality. This just launched into the US and will launch in Australia this October. In terms of retail we just launched into Sephora stores nationally in the US, which is something I am extremely proud of and we have some exciting announcements in the Australian market.
We have also elevated the packaging to properly reflect the premium, effective formulas that are inside and refine the brand messaging to better communicate our story and key points of difference. When KORA Organics first launched in 2009, Ecocert/COSMOS approved packaging options were limited so our first generation of packaging was pretty simple. With the growth of the organic and eco-conscious market and advancements in technology, there are now many more recyclable and biodegradable packaging options available so I'm excited to see the new packaging roll out.
KORA Organics Noni Glow Body Oil, Noni Glow Face Oil And Heart Chakra Aromatherapy Oil are available now from David Jones stores and koraorganics.com
