Safe – Formulated from excellent, non-toxic ingredients. Contains 89% certified organic ingredients including organic rose flower water, jojoba oil, orange oil and chlorella.
Responsible – Inspired by Dr Tarj Mavi’s unsuccessful search for a natural and organic skincare product to correct the severe melasma (pigmentation) she suffered following the birth of her first child, La Mav was created over 10 years ago. It was the very first 100% natural skincare range of products launched in Australia to use bio-actives (naturally occurring molecules derived from plants) in certified organic products.
All of the ingredients sourced and used in La Mav’s formulations are biodegradable and certified organic. The tubes, jars and boxes are all recyclable and they are in the process of moving to clear lids that will make the entire packaging recyclable.
Their policy of recycle, reduce and reuse is at the forefront of not only how they produce their products, but what comes in and out of the office. There are strict guidelines around recycling all packaging from deliveries through to only using keepcups and no PET water bottles in the office.
A lovely light, not-too-sticky gel that cools and refreshes the eye area. The scent is also enjoyable. Great to learn that Dr Mavi has been instrumental in creating the standards and requirements for bio-active ingredients to be incorporated in certified organic products.
As someone with constant dark rings under the eyes, I love that this gel works to revive and lighten the under-eye area. The gel is cooling and hydrating, reducing morning puffiness. After one week’s use, the lines around my eyes are smoother and less noticeable. Big fan.
I have thoroughly enjoyed using this lightweight and fast absorbing eye gel. It helps nourish the delicate area around your eyes and is absorbed quickly. After a few weeks of using the product, I noticed an improvement with hydration around my eyes. The brand’s commitment to organic and natural ingredients also resonates with my values and ethics as a green beauty blogger.
With an aloe base rather than an oil one, I love that this doesn’t mess with my eye makeup like the creamy ones do. Very hydrating, cooling and great for de-puffing my eyes in the morning.
