I am excited to offer an expertly crafted natural skincare brand featuring unique bioactive Australian native botanical ingredients. Skincare and helping people with their skin concerns is my absolute passion and I’m really excited about the incredible benefits that these native plants are able to provide to our skin.
Australia is home to a diverse range of amazing and unique botanical species. Scientists have discovered potent phyto-active compounds within these native plants that have powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. The Kakadu Plum in particular is the richest natural source of Vitamin C on the planet - up to 100 times the Vitamin C content of an orange! The amazing phyto-active compounds of these native plants have been extracted via breakthrough cellular technology that does not damage the plant or its precious phyto-compounds. These world first Australian native extracts are the key ingredients in the Karinda products.
I have been fortunate to have travelled to the Kimberley region of North Western Australia a number of times to visit the indigenous community that wild harvest the precious Kakadu Plum (traditionally known as Gubinge or Mudoor) that we use in our skincare. I also regularly attend personal care and cosmetics industry events and conferences and I am a member of the Australian Society of Cosmetic Chemists.
Each formulation in the Karinda range is original and unique and carefully designed to help improve the appearance and condition of your skin so you look great and feel amazing!

Traditional methods of plant extraction destroy the precious phyto-active compounds as plant cells are subjected to stressful conditions such as excessive heat and long periods of time soaked in solutions. The resulting plant extract has very little or zero activity and therefore minimal or zero benefit for the skin.
The certified organic Australian native botanical extracts used in our formulations are obtained via new advanced cellular extraction technology ensuring maximum potency and phyto-activity. World first cellular extraction technology is a rapid process that diffuses the phyto-active compounds through the cell wall into a liquid medium that mimics the cells natural environment. The plant's biomatrix is not damaged or stressed during the process resulting in an extract containing the full plant profile of phyto-active compounds as they exist in nature.
