The Lux List: 6 Australian-Made Wellness Favourites
After what feels like decades of rain (for those of us who live on Australia’s east coast, at least), summer has arrived in the Southern Hemisphere. The first silly season post-pandemic calls for fuller social schedules than usual, so in this week’s Lux List, we’ve put together a round-up of Australian-made wellness favourites to help you balance out the busy.
Health-enhancing tonics from JIVA
These potent tonics have been carefully formulated with naturally health-enhancing ingredients, concentrated into (beautifully branded) 100ml bottles to help you start your day with a kick of plant-derived goodness. Each tonic combines a nutritionist-backed selection of raw superfood ingredients, with specific benefits in mind – from improved gut health to glowing skin.
A gentle, natural glow from Sol Native
Limiting your skin’s exposure to the summer sun is easier when you’re not depending on it for a natural glow – enter Sol Native. A welcome break from the self-tanning products that are packed with parabens and chemicals, this new tanning serum is specifically designed for all skin types. The vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, paraben-free formula combines organic ingredients and naturally derived oils – making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin. Add a few drops to your moisturiser for a suntan sans the skin damage.
Organic Greens Superpowder from Ora Health
Sydney-born wellness brand Ora Health takes a holistic approach to health, based on the understanding that wellness is co-created, not achieved by taking one magic pill. If you were to incorporate just one thing into your daily routine though, Ora’s Organic Greens Superpowder would be a good option: a certified organic blend of superfood ingredients formulated to provide holistic nutrition. For the summer days that involve more spritzes than salads, view this as your nutritional insurance.
Bio-enhanced medicinal mushroom powders from TAKe Bio Actives
On a mission to share the myriad benefits of medicinal mushrooms with health-conscious Australians, TAKe Bio Actives has created a premium range of bio-enhanced mushroom powders, beautifully packaged in custom-made, recycled, and recyclable refillable jars. The Reishi, Lions Mane, Cordyceps, and Chaga blends have various wellness benefits – from regulating energy levels to increasing libido – so choose your fighter and add to your summer smoothie for an adaptogenic boost.
Immune-boosting collagen cleanse from Kiyomee Blends
Party season can take its toll on our skin as well as our immune system, which is why Kiyomee Blends Collagen Cleanse is such a godsend: a nutrient-rich supplement that supports both. The Australian-made formula uses high-grade hydrolysed collagen and a variety of plant extracts – including Curcumin, Green Tea, and Rosehip – to increase the body’s antioxidant capacity and protect against oxidative stress, thus boosting our natural immune system.
Inner Beauty Support from The Beauty Chef
The Beauty Chef’s range of plant-based, probiotic-rich supplements are created from the ethos that beauty begins in the gut. You can shop according to concern – be that eczema or low energy – on their website, but one product worth considering for overall well-being through the summer months is their Inner Beauty Support Gut Primer. The restorative powder is formulated with herbs that have been traditionally used to support digestive health – with the aim of repairing the gut lining and restoring gut health.
