The 7-star ingredients your go-to beauty products most likely don't include.

Have you ever scrutinised the ingredients in your daily beauty products?

Most of us have no idea what the ingredients in our beauty products are. And most likely have no idea why the product consists of each ingredient. 

How do you know if your beauty products' ingredients are good or bad for you?


It is a big word. 

It is a word that became a lifestyle with a positive outcome for Carla.

Carla has fibromyalgia. She started scrutinising every food label. Many contain ingredients that are not beneficial to her body. So she decided to apply the same scrutiny to her body products.

What followed?

Amazement to see all the unpronounceable ingredients. Carla started reading and realised that the ingredients didn't make sense. She felt like an uneducated consumer of skin products. Why don't products include natural ingredients beneficial for our skin? Today scrutiny comes natural.

The next step

She started to educate herself on what is beneficial for our skin. After all, our body absorbs everything we apply to it.

The mission was born. 

Carla and her Mom started searching for natural ingredients to produce a new range. A range of body products containing botanical ingredients. A product range not tested on animals and not detrimental to the planet. 

The road to an exciting new product production began. Scrutiny kickstarted the creation of a unique natural product range. 

A product range without fillers or harmful chemicals. Today Harvest Moon Skin consists of natural botanical ingredients.

Harvest Moon Skin Product Range

Scrutinising ingredients in beauty products led to finding wholesome natural ingredients. Natural ingredients that today form part of a new range of beauty products.

We all enjoy products that make us feel invigorated, hydrated and beautiful. We love products that are friendly to our gorgeous planet. 

These principles are the idea behind Harvest Moon Skin. Harvest Moon Skin created its products with a few must-haves and ideologies in mind.
