SILVER WINNER + EDITOR’S CHOICE
Safe – Formulated from excellent, non-toxic, organic ingredients. Contains 98% certified organic ingredients including flower nectars of rose, ylang ylang and neroli, as well as chia seed, acai, argan and raspberry oils.
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.
Absolutely love this oil, nectar is the perfect description as it is so smoothing, yet absorbs beautifully. The perfect last step of your daily routine.
Nectar really is the right word as this oil is so so lightweight and absorbs so quickly. Perfect for my combination skin, there’s no oily layer on my skin when I wake up and I think my fine lines look less prominent in the morning after using it. I love that it is made from only organic ingredients and the scent of the rose and ylang ylang is divine.
This truly is a “nectar”, made up of eight bio-active flower nectars: it smells divine, feels incredible between the fingertips and my maturing, dehydrated skin drinks it up. Skin feels super hydrated and soft the next day.
