Clean beauty, transparency, products that are designed to enrich the spirit as well as the skin, and certified organic ingredients of natural derivation: these are the pillars on which Kora Organics is based, the beauty brand of famous Australian model Miranda Kerr that we will discover today!
Pills of History
Before becoming a model, Miranda Kerr spent 18 months studying nutrition and health psychology at the Academy of Natural Living near Cairns, a passion that, in 2006, triggered the development and research behind Kora Organics; in that same year, she decided to start the development of the company to make a difference to people’s skin and their trust, and offer them a healthier alternative to other brands on the market, self-financing her project. Together with a team of researchers and consultants in microbiology, aromatherapy and organic chemistry specialized in organic and natural formulations, she identified the active ingredients that would have later become the protagonists of the brand, chosen because of their natural healing and protective powers. Kora Organics was launched in 2009 exclusively in Australia and nowadays its products are available globally in 30 countries and since 2017 to date, the company has won 24 awards including the Allure Best of Beauty for three consecutive years, the Elle International Beauty Awards, and the Instyle magazine Best Beauty Awards, becoming famous all over the world for its philosophy.
The Mission of the Brand
Kora Organics is not just a skincare brand aimed at taking care of your skin, but it is also based on the formulation of products that are designed to enrich the spirit: it is to take a moment for yourself, during the hectic daily routine, to nourish the mind, body, and skin. Miranda Kerr’s holistic approach is based on the philosophy that positive thoughts create vibrations of positive energy within the body. In fact, on the back of each product, there is a positive word to inspire and elevate the spirit, reminding us to save some time during the busy days to be present, balanced, and aware of what we do. In addition to that, all products during the production process are filtered through pink quartz crystals to infuse the vibration of love.
Not only that: Miranda Kerr believes in clean beauty and transparency of everything we apply to our skin. For this reason, Kora Organics is certified organic and natural and all its products are free from artificial perfume, GMO-free, artificial dyes, not tested on animals and vegans. The ingredients of the products are chosen personally, and fruits and vegetables are grown organically and free from pesticides and toxic heavy metals. Among the most popular ingredients, the ones that stand out are tropical fruits, special essential oils, the Noni, also known as Indian mulberry – a plant native to Asia rich in antioxidants – Babassu oil, apple seed oil, the Mangosteen – the fruit of the Garcinia mangostana, rich in water and folic acid useful to protect the skin – licorice, peppers, and many more.
Our favorite Kora Organics products: the Shining Stars
Glowing Gua Sha Collection
The combination of Noni Glow Face Oil + gua sha Rose Quartz Heart is the ally that will make your skin brighter than ever – and that you will never want to leave! Noni Glow Face Oil is an oil developed to nourish, smooth, and illuminate skin containing rosehip oil, Noni, pomegranate extract, and sea buckthorn: apply it on the face after cleansing, as the last step of the skincare routine, and with the Rose Quartz Heart gently massage face and neck for about 3-5 minutes a day, stimulating circulation and sculpting some areas of the face.
Why the pink quartz? This stone was chosen by Miranda because it helps relieve tension, stress, and anxiety, increases self-love, and promotes feelings of well-being. What more do we want for our spa-at-home time?
Milky Mushroom Gentle Cleansin
Shake it! This bi-phase cleansing oil turns into a milky cleanser that gently removes excess sebum and makeup. Thanks to certified organic sunflower seed oil, babassu oil, silver ear mushroom (a natural alternative to traditional hyaluronic acid), and apple seed oil – which purifies and nourishes the skin with essential fatty acids – it is perfect for all skin types, especially dry and sensitive, given its soothing action.
Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum
We all know that vitamin C is a must-have ingredient for a skincare routine with flakes: its powerful antioxidant effect makes it suitable to protect the skin that over time has lost the ability to neutralize free radicals (mainly responsible for aging) and to standardize the complexion, attenuating spots and discolorations. The Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum contains the Vitamin C Superfruit Complex, a patented complex that includes Kakadu plum, acerola cherry, orange peel and lemon, noni and ascorbic glucoside to increase the protection of the skin against the harmful effects of free radicals and to standardize skin tone reducing the appearance of pigmentation and dark spots.
Turmeric Brightening & Exfolia
This mask helps clean pores and provides the power of an invigorating facial treatment directly at home, in complete relaxation. The seeds of rosehip and quartz polish the skin, while the enzymes of natural derivation from the papaya and the natural source of BHA and poplar bark free the pores and refine the grain of the skin. Not only that: turmeric brightens, calms, and helps protect against environmental aging, while peppermint essential oil works as an invigorating and refreshing agent. You can use it both as a scrub to polish the skin and as a leave-on mask: in both cases, the result is guaranteed!
Noni Glow Sleeping Mask
Did you say hydration?! This gel mask fights dehydration for smoother and plumped-looking skin, all while we sleep! Coconut milk, rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and known to rebalance the protection of the skin barrier, combines with extracts of caviar, lime, Kakadu plum, and silver ear mushroom, which act in synergy to renew and soothe the skin. Let her act for the whole night and the next morning you will feel reborn, word of honor.
Calming Lavender Mist
A delicate essence for the face that calms mind, body, and skin, formulated with lavender flower water, noni extract, aloe vera, and bergamot water, combined to create a mist relaxant to be used after cleansing to tone and prepare the skin for subsequent treatments. Miranda’s advice? Every time you feel the need to freshen up, pour some on your face and enjoy the feeling. You can also spray some on the pillow to help you sleep, for a deep and restful sleep!
Noni Radiant Eye Oil
Treatment for the eye contour made of organic oil, formulated to smooth, tone, and illuminate the under-eye area: in it, we find noni, tomato extract – known to reduce redness and signs of inflammation – and marine bamboo, which combine with Kahai and coffee oil to awaken and brighten the delicate eye area.
If you have a combination, oily, acne, or even dry skin but with some imperfections, the Purifying Moisturizer is what you need: it is a super light moisturizer to use both morning and evening, formulated to balance and maintain hydration while defeating the much-feared pimples and blackheads. Organic extracts of lemon, green tea, and pomegranate help purify the skin, while aloe vera, hyaluronic sodium, and natural hyaluronic acid soothe, smooth, and moisturize.
