Welcome to our kitchen
Here’s how our founder Anna Mitsios – a naturopath and nutritionist – harnesses the healing power of nature, thinks about your beauty concerns holistically and addresses the underlying cause of a condition – rather than simply offering symptomatic relief.
Understanding your ailment
My approach differs from conventional skincare formulation. Instead of working on the combination of emulsifiers, emollients, preservatives and fragrances, I first consider the therapeutic actions I want the product to have. For example, antimicrobial, astringent or anti-inflammatory.
Sourcing pure botanicals
I then consider the wildcrafted botanicals that give the action needed and where to source them. Using Australian natives means supporting local indigenous communities that wild harvest these plants. While, botanicals grown in arid, mountainous or challenging terrain inherently contain a greater antioxidant capacity than traditionally farmed plants.
Blending art and natural medicine
This step requires understanding the traditional use of a botanical as well as the results of clinical studies about each ingredient. I also examine the nutritional profile of the ingredients because – just like your body – your skin needs a varied diet of omegas, vitamins and minerals.
The scientific formulation ensures there are active doses of the key botanicals in your skincare and wellness products to achieve the desired results. For this step, we work closely with a specialised Australian organic chemist.
Considered finishing touches
Finally, I tweak scent and texture to achieve a beautiful, highly-effective skincare or ingestible option that’s safe for you – and the planet. We use Miron violet glass packaging, which preserves and activates the products inside. And then, when you run out, our global recycling partner TerraCycle collects and recycles your Edible Beauty packaging.
