Malachite is the it skincare ingredient right now, and it’s no wonder why when you learn of it’s incredible healing and detoxifying benefits for the mind and body. As we’re all about the connection between beauty, health and nature at RAWKANVAS, we couldn’t help but get our hands on this!
What is Malachite, exactly?
Did you know that Malachite is a mineral that can evolve into a beautiful opaque green crystal? Yep – this big skincare ingredient can actually crystallise!
Malachite is the crystal of transformation, of encouraging change and turning over a new leaf. It acts as a spiritual makeover tool to renew energy and increase focus, while cleansing and purifying the chakra centres.
Malachite has long been used as a prized crystal to detoxify the spirit and encourage positive change. It’s healing practices actually date right back to use in the ancient Egyptian times and more recently, it has been used in practice by Native Americans.
So, why is this in my skincare?
As a crystal, Malachite really is quite magical and transformative. Now think about how transformative Malachite can be for your skin as a mineral!
Malachite is an ingredient that is antioxidant rich with a high copper content that stimulates collagen production, ultimately improving skin elasticity and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles (this is where its ‘botox’ tag stems from!). It can also strengthen the skin’s natural defences, fight free radical pollutants (such as smog and UV exposure), and it can also act as a recovery ingredient to sun exposure (read: everyone in the southern hemisphere who has seen the sunshine once in their lifetime!).
Where can I find this holy grail skincare ingredient?
Dubbed, Mother Nature’s answer to botox, we’re pleased to say that this superhero ingredient Malachite plays a vital role in Eternal: Plumping Deep Sea & Malachite Collagen Serum.
