Nativo Skincare : simple things and unconventional beauty

Today, my darling readers, I want you to meet the natural skincare brand that I’ve just recently discovered myself – Nativo Skincare. I had this click with this company, that usually wakes my most creative senses. I don’t know what exactly was it – their artisan, hand-crafted, small batch skincare products, their clean black and white gorgeously designed packaging, the fact that all of their creations are cruelty-free or that I am imagining myself somewhere in a tropical Panama scenery while using Nativo. Oh yes, this is the first time I am hosting a company from Panama on TLV Birdie Blog, and I am so glad to make this happen and to share it with all of you!

This post would be a bit different from my usual green beauty posts. I will try to make it shorter (oh, I know, it’s just sometimes I can’t stop talking typing) and to leave you a full freedom to go explore Nativo Skincare yourself. Especially, considering the fact that all US-based green beauty enthusiasts can purchase Nativo skincare products via Urban Outfitters* (which is super convenient!). Oh and, for you, my international birdies, Nativo has a friendly Etsy Store*! Also, we’ve got a giveaway prepared for you, at the end of the post!

But let’s have a cup of coffee first! That one that is actually good for your skin! Nativo Coffee Body Scrub* does an amazing job by waking up your skin, providing proper exfoliation and improving the circulation process that eventually leads to reducing you know what (psst, I can’t say it out loud – cellulite). Mixed with a bunch of amazing oils and natural antioxidant sources, it also nourishes the skin and evens out the tone. Healthy glowing skin with a wonderful morning coffee aroma, is there anything better?!

Among ingredients : Cane sugar, Coffee beans, Honey, Sunflower oil, Safflower oil, Sweet Almond oil, non-GMO Vitamin E, Rosemary leaf extract.

“Pink facial time!” That’s exactly what I said when I opened this Nativo Clay Mask* jar. I LOVE natural clay-based masks, where it’s only me who controls the consistency by adding the right amount of water (yogurt, aloe, milk, honey or another mixing liquid choice). Another reason to love them – their extraordinary ability to clarify, detoxify and exfoliate. This mask has also proved it’s ability to calm and balance the skin into the right complexion (basically, talking every skin type here). Plus, my Sunday home facial has never looked this girly!:)

Among ingredients : Apricot Kernel powder, Oat meal, Bentonite – food grade clay, Cranberry seed powder, Hibiscus flower powder, proprietary blend of organic essential oils.

Now, it’s time to talk about some “unconventional” beauty products and to step up your natural routine! I’ve already introduced you to organic solutions for dental care in this post, here’s another Remineralizing Tooth Powder from Nativo skincare that you can try to make your dental routine way safer! I’ll be honest with you (just as always!), I haven’t completely switched to natural alternatives of a basic tooth paste. Yet. But I am incorporating this tooth powder a few times a week in order to make it into a habit. It’s really easy to use – just tap a small amount of the powder on the palm of your hand, and pick it up with a wet brush. Then go ahead, enjoy your health-conscious self!

Among ingredients : Bentonite – food grade clay, Non-aluminium Baking Soda, Sea salt, Dead Sea Salt, Sage powder, Need oil, Essential oils of Tea Tree and Spearmint.

A little gift to you your other half – this all-natural, Aloe vera based Soothing After Shave lotion*. My other half already has it on his grooming shelf, where all his masculine products are settled. This doesn’t actually mean that I don’t use it when a situation requires (and this is a secret between us!). This lotion has a gorgeous herbal aroma (which I find already soothing enough), but also a couple of super power abilities, i.e. to heal and calm down the skin, reduce irritation and prevent blemishes caused by a razor. Everything for a baby smooth skin as a final result!

Among ingredients : Aloe Vera gel, Witch Hazel extract, Coconut oil, Grape Seed oil, Yarrow extract, Non-GMO Vitamin E, proprietary blend of organic and wild-harvested essential oils.

Probably the most discussed topic in the green and natural beauty community is, tadaaam, safe and aluminium-free deodorant. This Deodorizing Underarm Potion* from Nativo is one of them! It has quite neutral aroma, and a blend of essential oils and natural ingredients to effectively neutralize odor, detoxify and sooth the skin throughout the day. However, it does contain baking soda which I am sometimes reactive to. If you don’t have a suuuper sensitive skin, you won’t feel the difference though. Overall, a great product to try and raise up your natural skincare game!

Among ingredients : Witch Hazel extract, Shea nut butter, Arrowroot powder, Bentonite – food grade clay, Non-aluminium Baking soda, Non-GMO Vitamin E, Neem Oil, Rosemary Leaf extract, proprietary blend of organic essential oils.

    The ingredients in this products are great! I found it interesting that hibiscus flower powder is in the body scrub. I have seen hibiscus been used more on skincare products recently. Funny thing is, we drink it as a tea. Dried hibiscus flower, water, and sugar. Tastes delicious!!

    • I love hibiscus tea! Both for color and for the aroma! I also love the fact Nativo are using the powder of Hibiscus flower for their Clay Mask, I believe it’s one of the sources of the gorgeous pink color of the mask! Thanks for reading, Michell!
