MEET THE MAKER: BUDDHA BODY CARE
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Sandra, the visionary and maker of the lovely products from Buddha Body Care. There is so much care and love behind each luxurious product.
How do you start Buddha Body Care?
I started Buddha when I became frustrated that good quality organic skincare brands didn’t seem to have a holistic approach to their business. I didn’t think it was good enough to just be ‘organic’ and ignore environmental impacts of the beauty industry. What’s the point of being organic and good for us if it deprives another species of its environment and possible extinction, how selfish are we! For example the degradation of the Orangutan habitat for Palm oil production just isn’t good enough and at some point we have to make a conscious choice. My other passion in life is hiking, I’m talking serious hiking, like 1000km trails, so I spend a lot of time in nature and enjoying nature all over the world and I’m fiercely protective and passionate about protecting what we have, because unfortunately I’ve travelled to parts of the world that have been devastated by humankind.
What is the brands philosophy?
The Buddha philosophy is best summed up by our Mandala. Mandala’s are intricate and complex and created from the centre outwards, but their message is simple. The Mandala is a metaphor for ourselves and for Buddha it symbolises that true beauty comes from within, our products support and encourage true beauty by being pure, simple and honest.
What is your favourite Buddha Body Care skin care product?
At the moment my favourite Buddha skin care product is Rose Therapy Serum, I absolutely love it!
What are your favourite skincare tips?
Be adventurous with products, use them to multitask. Buddha Rose Therapy Serum contains certified organic Argan Oil as its main ingredient so any residual oil can be run through your hair. Our Fabulous All Over Oil really can be used anywhere and Buddha Pure Organic Rose Mist will hydrate, tone and refresh, you can even use it as a room spray.
What is your current skincare routine?
I always remove my make up with Buddha Divine Cleansing Oil, wash with Organic French Clay Facial Soap (morning and night) finish with either Rose Therapy Serum or Rose hip Replenishing Oil (evening) or Nourishing Rose Moisturiser under make up and exfoliate once a week with Buddha Gentle Exfoliating Powder.
