The Salt + Glow Skin Soufflé is a luxuriously nourishing moisturiser; its texture resembling that of a soufflé. It’s made by certified organic ingredients working to soothe and comfort dryer skin while the essential oils work to invigorate. The formula hero’s ingredients such as Kakadu Plum, Pomegranate, Olive Leaf, Sea Buckthorn Oil and Shea Butter for an antioxidant packed hydrating cream, working to repair skin cells and fight the signs of ageing.

 

The product is packed with so many ingredients, it’s almost got you covered for the seasons changes and the in-between months. The nourishing Omega-7 and essential fatty acid ingredients for the harsher winter months, and the more antioxidant fruits to brighten and repair from the suns damage. Depending on your skin type, you can go between the Normal – Dry Skin moisturiser to the Normal – Oily moisturiser throughout the year to balance out your skins needs. This product is made in Australia and handcrafted in small batches for freshness.

First impressions

Fragrance: 
A unique blend of essential oils, the Skin Souffle has an uplifting scent of Jasmine and Sweet Orange extract. It’s quite a subtle scent due the blend across many essential oils. 

Texture: 
Silky to touch, this moisturiser leaves skin feeling soft and nourished. The soufflé has been whipped, so it has a creamy mousse texture, and sinks into the skin creating a healthy barrier to replenish surface level dryness.

Efficacy:
Its consistency means you don’t need a lot – meaning this little jar will last you a long while. Its gentle ingredients are great for skin conditions that have surface level dryness, such as eczema, although we recommend to patch test prior to use, as essential oils can be temperamental depending on the individual. The result: a dewy, hydrated complexion.

Packaging review

Anything packed in glass is our favourite type of packaging. It’s an environmentally friendly alternative to plastics as it can be reused, recycled and repurposed. Made from all-natural raw materials, and long lasting in its structural integrity.

 


Formulation full analysis

The Good

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter is a thick skin conditioning agent that helps retain moisture into the skin by creating a barrier on the skin’s surface. It also works to deeply moisturise the skin and heal any dry flakes on the surface. This ingredient has a high content unsaponifiable fats - where unlike other fatty oils such as coconut oil it has a higher ability to retain its moisturising abilities. It is a certified organic ingredient in this product.

Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil is noncomedogenic, meaning it doesn’t clog pores, a common misconception about applying oil on skin. It’s rich in iodine, which fights harmful bacteria that commonly leads to breakouts, working as a protectant and a cleanser in one. Jojoba oil accelerates wound-healing processes and has an extremely low toxic effect on skin, making it a perfect carrier oil in blends, and an easy multi-purpose oil day or night. It is a certified organic ingredient in this product.

Rose Eglanteria (Rosehip) Seed Oil is a rich source of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, penetrating the skin on a cellular level to provide its healing properties. Rosehip oil is particularly suitable for dryer, more mature skin types, or for someone looking to treat scarring and/or redness associated with inflammation. Through its penetrative action, its properties infiltrate the skin and work to delay skin ageing, promoting collagen and elastin levels – these benefits making it a great option for more mature types looking to fight wrinkles and fine lines, and those who have sun damaged skin, or in need of balancing skin tone due to scars. It is a certified organic ingredient in this product.

Kakadu Plum is a hero ingredient in the Skin Souffle. This ingredient is the single natural food source with the highest vitamin C content on the planet. It’s added to natural skin care products for this reason, assisting in the production of collagen within skin cells and treating sun-damaged and ageing skin.

The Questionable

There’s actually no questionable ingredients here. None to the naked eye, anyway. We’d be interested to find out the purity and the source of the ingredients and the extraction methods used to create the product. This will tell us about the level of therapeutic benefits we’re receiving through each ingredient.
