Cornish Natural Skincare

The mother of good skin

We started Ma Natural Skincare to naturally improve the long-term skincare of our customers. To achieve ‘personal best skin’ whilst lowering the impact on our environment. Following the principles of slow skincare we incorporate a range of local Cornish hero ingredients including Sea Buckthorn from Lostwithiel, Saffron from the Roseland, Cornish Sea Salt, and Cornish Kaolin.

We have purposely taken a plant-first approach to our skincare, using proven natural ingredients instead of the harmful synthetic compounds found in many shop bought products.

At Ma we believe that getting back in touch with nature is what will help you achieve the happy, healthy and glowing skin you want. You can read our founders story here.

Cornish Hero Ingredient

Sea Buckthorn Oil

Sea buckthorn is packed with over 12 times the amount of Vitamin C than its other citrus cousins. This alone makes it an amazing treatment for reducing inflammation in the skin, boosting collagen and skin firmness, as well as brightening overall complexion. 

Containing over 200 nutrients (including Vitamin A, B1, B2, C, E, K), sea buckthorn oil is also packed full of omega 3, 6 and 9. It’s also the only plant source in the land that contains the much sought after omega 7.

We love this tiny, vibrant little berry, as well as Seth Pascoe just down the road in Lostwithiel who grows and supplies it to us.

Rosehips

The masters of anti-aging, rosehips are jam-packed with vitamins A, C and F, which make them vital ingredients of our balms and serums.

Grown above the sunny River Camel, our Cornish rosehip oil features the signature vibrant, intoxicating scent, which studies have shown can help with overall calming, lowering of blood pressure and enhancing blood oxygen saturation.

Sea Salt

One of the biggest benefits to using sea salt, is the glow that your skin is left with. Just like a dip in the ocean, the natural salt blast on your skin leaves you feeling youthful and soft. 

The salt from our seas is rich in minerals including sodium, calcium, magnesium, sulphur and potassium. All of which are critical for the development and maintenance of healthy and happy skin. 

Used in our body scrubs sea salt is fabulous for increasing circulation as well as gently removing dead skin cells, encouraging regeneration and removing toxins from our pores.

Kaolin Clay

Cornish Kaolin Clay has been mined in Cornwall since the 1700’s. We love it for its versatile properties as a cleanser and face mask, and take advantage of its mild yet mineral rich features. The clay we use has an ultra fine, soft texture that is rich in silica and has a neutral PH. 

Often too much oil on the skin can result in blocked pores or dull looking texture. Since Cornish Kaolin has a very mild texture it works perfectly as a face mask, absorb excess oil, without the downsides of it over drying or stripping out the natural oils that would otherwise cause dryness.
