Brand Focus: Ausganica – Plus INTERNATINAL GIVEAWAY

As a beauty blogger and lover of all beauty products, I love it when I come across new brands, and hence I was quite excited when I was recently contacted by Ausganica.

Ausganica is an Australian maker of certified organic skincare, haircare, and cosmetics. The story began in 1997 with group of aroma-therapists, organic farmers, and cosmeceutical experts who all shared the dream of healthy natural personal care.






Grown from one of the world’s largest certified organic farms, with nearly 500 acres, certified Grade A by OGA (Organic Growers Australia), and also certified by HACCP. The manufacturing is certified by both ACO (Australian Certified Organic), and the OFC (Organic Food Chain).

Organic botanical essences form the core of Ausganica, where they follow the ancient methods of hand picking fresh plants, infusing them with organic grain alcohol, allowing them to steep for 28-30 days, then extracting. This is to ensure a complete and diverse nutrient content in the actives and preserve their ultimate vitality.


In order to achieve premium quality, Ausganica insists on only organic, natural and expressly allowed ingredients according to certified organic and eco/green standards. We don’t use synthetic fragrances, synthetic minerals, synthetic colours, sulphates, parabens and other harsh ingredients.. And we never do any animal testing, or use animal-tested source ingredients, or animal-derived ingredients.


I was lucky to be able to try a couple of products, including the lavender range, which includes shampoo, conditioner, body & hand wash and body lotion. The products are exceptionally gentle, and all have gorgeous, yet subtle lavender scent. Personally, when I think of the lavender scent, it reminds me of something I’d smell at my grandma’s place, and a bit of an old person’s scent, but that is far from the case, it is so fresh, natural and lovely that I might have to revise my thoughts on the lavender scent!


The shampoo, which contains gentle botanical cleansers soap nut, and coconut water blended in a ph neutral formula to calm and soothe a sensitive scalp, really does cleanse the hair very gently, and in just one wash removing all build up from styling products.





I follow with the conditioner, which is enriched with pure active botanicals including calendula, chamomile, argan, and Australian daisy flower to lock in moisture and soothes sensitive scalps. The conditioner is easy to rinse out without feeling there is residue left behind, and it leaves my hair easy to comb. Once my hair has dried naturally it feels so light, and is so soft and smooth.





The hand and body wash is 100% plant based foaming wash and enriched with valeriana, comfrey, and Australian daisy flower to deliver the ultimate calming effect to the skin while English chamomile, blue German chamomile, and calendula oils help skin to regain its comfortness. And it cleanses the skin so gently, leaving it feeling silky soft and without drying out the skin.


Regardless, I still follow with the Body lotion which is made with calendula, chamomile, frankincense oils, and nourishing shea nut butter, coconut and argan oils. The lotion is quite runny in formula, but don’t be fooled, it still instantly provides intense moisture to the skin, absorbing immediately without leaving the skin feeling greasy or tacky. It even manages to provide sufficient moisture to those very dry ares such as my shins and elbows, with no need to reapply during the day.


All in all, I really love the fact that these products are of such high quality. They smell amazing thanks to the essential oils and best of all, they are certified organic! This gorgeous travel pack with Lavender products, is the perfect to trial several products from Ausganica, and of course, it is perfect for both travelling and for popping into the gym bag. And trialling these lovely lavender products has definitely made me want to try more from Ausganica.


If you want to know more about Ausganica or purchase some of their products, check out the Ausganica website and make sure to follow them on facebook too.
