That's the current hype among youths. I mean, people always aspire to be healthy, obviously, but it's like that desires have been multiplied tenfold in recent years.
Smoothie bowl, acai, quinoa, almond milk, gluten-free diet, low-carb diet, vegan-anything, etc, you name it. The whole nine. BUT the most pronounced of all would probably be the desire to keep our consumption ORGANIC.

It's the first step people usually make when they intend to have a healthier lifestyle, keeping things organic. It's like the gateway drug to all those healthier substitutes (e.g. almond milk instead of cow milk, nutritional yeast instead of cheese, etc). 
If you've read my blog, you know I love my food. I love fried food, meat, and fat-and-carb-laden creamy pasta. I'd rather have to workout harder than give up my gluten, carbs, and fat. I do, however, try to eat healthier in another way, like adding vegetables to my meal AND buying organic ingredients when I can afford it.

I'm sure there are a lot of you who don't just stop at your food intake when it comes to keeping it organic but going as far as your make-up and skin care as well, especially for those of you who have sensitive skin.
Thus, in this post, I'm gonna introduce to you a local ORGANIC CERTIFIED SKIN CARE RANGE.
Yes, it's an actual CERTIFIED organic skin care. There are a lot of local brands that promote their products as "natural" and "organic", but SOLUSI is actually the FIRST Indonesian brand to have a certification of organic cosmetics from ECOCERT.

And rest assured, it's brought to you by a trusted veteran in Indonesia's beauty scene, Martha Tilaar.

Aren't you proud of the rapidly growing local beauty brands in Indonesia nowadays?
As for the time being, they offer an anti-aging skin care range that uses GREEN GRAPESEED OIL and LICORICE EXTRACT as the main ingredient.
Green grapeseed oil contains a powerful anti-oxidant that is 20x stronger than Vitamin E and 50x stronger than Vitamin C. It preserves collagen structure in your skin to keep it youthful and elastic. 
Licorice extract contains Glabridin and Licochalcone that acts as anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory.
I personally think that you should start your anti-aging skin care in your 20s, so this skincare range is not just targetted towards women in their 30s and 40s, but also young adults.

Moreover, if you're in your early 20s and just starting to get serious about your skincare, SOLUSI provides simple and rounded products that can get you started.
There are no million products that you have to consider, just the essentials that you NEED, which are Face Cleanser, Face Wash, Face Toner, Moisture Lotion, and Night Cream. Yup, just 5 (they're adding a scrub in the near future, so look out for that. I think the only thing missing from the current line-up imo is eye cream). Easy and simple. From there, you can easily add serum, mask, and other things if you want to because you already have the basic covered by SOLUSI.
It's also worth mentioning that their packagings are degradable and environmentally-friendly. AND AND I absolutely love their Face Toner and Face Cleanser bottles. They have a gorgeous jade sheen.

Now, I'm not the most health-conscious person out there, so I don't actually actively looking for a natural skincare, but if you are, you'd be happy to know that they contain no Paraben, no SLS, no Mineral Oil, and no Propylene Glycol. And because of this, they only last for about 6 months after you've opened them.

That's a wrap on this post, hope you guys find it informational if you're looking for an organic skincare range and looking to support a local brand.

Take care,
