It is important to recognize local products entering the market in order for it to grow and create more opportunities for people who know the skill of making quality beauty and skincare products. Local products are usually over-shadowed by big, multinational companies operating within Pakistan and big companies even outside of Pakistan because many think that whatever is imported will have some kind of magical formula— nope, THAT is not true at all. In fact some contain harmful chemicals and ingredients that if we were to see them in their natural form spread out on a table, we would never use them.
Moving on, a few local start-ups have managed to make it big with the quality of their products, most of them even use natural and organic ingredients, and we find all that very impressive. That’s why today we want to share with you some fantastic local skincare products made to give you fabulous skin and keep it free from a good number of problems!
1. Conatural Daily Essential Face Wash with Lavender and Chamomile
Formulated with organic oils and for all skin types, this face wash is the real deal! It’s SLS free, meaning free of Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, which is a foaming agent used by many of the big brands. It’s free of artificial fragrances and parabens, thus very gentle on the skin. The creamy face wash aims to remove dirt and impurities from your skin without disturbing your skin’s pH balance! It leaves your skin feeling clean and moisturized (YAYYY) since many face wash formulas leave our skins dry and flaky. This one’s a keeper if you want your skin to stay hydrated and smell oh-so-lavender all the time!
2. Aura Restore Neroli and Tea Tree Face Oil (for sensitive and oily skin)
This face oil should be your go-to-solution for getting rid of acne. Whilst using it you will also be able to say good bye to annoying acne marks and spots that are left behind. This oil is rich and loaded with antioxidants and antibacterial qualities that will restore (see what I did there? Hehehe) your skin back to its former, clear, glowing magnificence! Your skin will feel much softer and healthier once you get hooked onto this all-natural face oil!

3. Harvest Tree Tea Tree Anti Acne Handmade Soap
We love all things local, organic and natural, which is why there’s another wonderful product on this list to eliminate all your acne problems! Harvest Tree’s products are free from preservatives and artificial ingredients, which is great news to improve the condition of your skin as it will get less irritated.

4. Inqalab Organic Shop Sugar Scrubs- Tea Tree and Almond Oil & Cocoa
These two (BRACE YOURSELVES) are so so so good! They smell good, they are refreshing and they most certainly do their work! Made from organic (DUH) ingredients, the tea tree scrub has its own minty smell whereas the cocoa scrub is yum… how do I even explain it? Both of these local skincare products work wonders to exfoliate and your skin is just left feeling feather-soft. These scrubs give off the most satisfying feeling when you rub them against your skin. My point being… just go grab these. Use once to twice a week for exfoliation and you’re good to go!

5. Honey, Love, Etc.’s Anti-Aging Bee Venom Oil
Yes, you read that right. Bee VENOM. Scary? Wait till I tell you what it does! Once you apply this oil to your skin, the skin reacts to the bee venom found in the oil as if it’s been lightly stung, triggering an increase in your body’s production of wrinkle-smoothing collagen and elastin to lift, plump and tighten the skin. (NO MORE SAGGY SKIN, LADIES!!!) Don’t worry; this does not hurt at all. In fact, you may feel a mild tingling and the result is an anti-aging and rejuvenating effect that makes your skin more radiant and youthful by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. If you don’t believe this, go read about it! 😀 also do NOTE that some people may be allergic to this so it’s advisable that you check if you have a bee allergy. ALSO do take instructions from the lady on how long to apply it and so on so forth.
