The turmeric packed skincare product your face needs

We’re always on the hunt for the latest revolutionary ingredient that will transform our complexion. This summer, we’ve discovered tumeric. It turns that the aromatic orange spice usually used to add colour and flavour to curry can also work wonders on the skin.

What is turmeric?

Turmeric is a natural ingredient mainly grown in the tropics. With a very similar look and feel to ginger, it has a peppery, warm flavour when eaten. For many years’ turmeric has played a key role in Eastern cultures and Ayurvedic medicines and is known for its calming therapeutic qualities.

What is turmeric good for?

Aside from adding flavour to food, turmeric also has many healing and cosmetic properties. A stalwart ingredient when it comes to skincare, turmeric contains many properties that contribute to revealing a natural glow. Naturally packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components, the powerful ingredient works hard to brighten and revive skin.
