As Australia is lacking in ozone protection the need for skin care products that are high in antioxidant value is of utmost importance to our Aussie skins. Whatever skin care range you use, if you are living in Australia, make sure your products contain a decent amount of antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Green Tea, Pomegranate seed extract, Resveratrol and Niacinamide to name a few.

Our cells are bombarded with more cellular damage due to our depleted ozone layer than any other country. We made our Skin Matrix Skin Care Products with the Aussie skin in mind along with other Aussie skin care brands such as ASAP Skin Care Products. The perks of buying Australian Made Skin Care is that only Australians know and understand first hand just how strong our sun is and the damage that this can do to our cells over time.

A European summer just feels different on the skin than an Australian summer sun on the skin. You can feel the intensity of the UV rays, it is relentless and shows no mercy. UV damage causes oxidation in the skin, premature ageing, damage to the DNA of our cells (which is not what we want considering our cells replicate!) and sun spots. No matter your skin type or condition, daily use of antioxidants will assist the skin in preventing UV related skin issues, along with wearing a mineral sunscreen, rain hail or shine, 365 days a year.

Here are my top benefits for buying Australian Made Skin Care:

~ You know the skin care is made by Aussies who have Australian Skins in mind.

~ Buying local you can have a personal interaction with the brand who makes your skin care.

~ Australian Products are not required by law to test on animals. There are still countries such as China that require all imported skin care sold to its consumers must be tested on animals. I believe these laws are slowly changing, some local companies are now able to waive through this requirement.

~ Ingredients are more likely to be locally sourced which also supports our economy.

~ Finding a skin care brand you love to use, and enjoy the benefits of using is a wonderful thing.
