Since our launch last year, Mukti Organics has quickly emerged as one of our most trusted brands for holistic skincare that achieves results. Part organic botanicals, native Australian extracts and well-researched actives, Mukti’s formulas seem to strike the perfect balance of green beauty paired with peptides, retinol, niacinamide and Vitamin C in all the right places. The X factor is Founder Mukti, the author of my favorite book on skincare, Truth In Beauty. Mukti does her research, and lands on ingredient formulas and combinations that are science supported and couples that with the wisdom inherent in plants. Mukti launched her skincare line 20 years ago in her homeland of Australia. A student of integrative medicine and botany, Mukti discovered and embraced green chemistry early on and was the very first to formulate skincare leveraging native Australian cellular extracts, a process that maintains the plants molecular structure as it was in nature.
Over the years, this artisan vegan skincare, body and hair care brand has evolved to its current status: a certified COSMOS-ORGANIC range that meets the gold standard in international global organic certifications. After 20 years, Mukti still has her hand in every aspect of the brand including sourcing, formulation and production.
Today, with the launch of our sophomore Mukti Organics Discovery, we announce a new Hero product, one that addresses a wide variety of skin issues, at once. Introducing Mukti’s Deep Cleanse Antioxidant Masque, April’s Hero product and perhaps the most perfect treatment to help our skin navigate the change of seasons.
As spring blooms, our skin also seeks a fresh start. This wintergreen whipped masque delicately detoxifies with an enzyme exfoliating complex and bioactive cellular extracts including Kakadu plum, banksia and silky oil grass. But, unlike many clay-based treatments, this mask doesn’t dry up to draw out impurities, leaving skin purified but parched. Quite the contrary. This emollient masque stays wet like a pudding on the skin, imparting essential antioxidants, phytonutrients, essential fatty acids and minerals, thanks to pawpaw, coconut, macadamia nut and jojoba oils. Matcha and chlorophyll give skin a potent boost of radiance while the small spherical jojoba esters are responsible for your softest skin.
And, if I’m being honest, this month it was very difficult to name the Hero product, as our official Sidekick is Mukti Organics Age Defiance Eye Serum. This one-of-a-kind eye treatments was created for results. Mukti researched peptides specifically suited to benefit the eye area and landed on a quad of potent, clinically tested peptides, Argireline, Eyeseyl, Hydasine and Serilesine. In this formula she pairs them with native Australian extracts of emu apple and quandong to diminish darkness and reduce puffiness that can settle under the eye.
A base of certified organic aloe vera and shea butter gives this lightweight treatment its creamy gel texture, while deeply moisturizing plant oils, cooling cucumber and calming chamomile blur fine lines for a soft-focus effect. It’s called a serum, but feels like a light sheer eye cream, which makes it the perfect weight to wear under makeup.

DISCOVER IT YOURSELF. HERE’S HOW:
Polish damp skin with the 2-in-1 Resurfacing Exfoliant. Apply a thin layer to face, neck, and décolleté with your fingertips. Leave on for just a few minutes while the Australian flora derived AHA’s gently dissolve buildup. Add a splash of water to your hands and massage the jojoba beads and soft bamboo fibers under the fingertips in circular motions, taking your time to polish face, neck and chest. Rinse and pat dry.
Spritz freshly exfoliated skin with Orange Blossom Mist. Holding the sprayer about 12 inches away from your face, close your eyes and generously mist face, hair and aura. Deeply inhale and exhale the day.
Scoop and spread a thick layer of Deep Cleanse Antioxidant Masque across skin, using your finger pads to evenly cover your cheeks, chin and forehead with the whipped, emollient masque. Wait 15 minutes, then massage briefly with wet hands, feeling the small jojoba beads roll under your fingertips. Rinse with warm water and pat skin dry.
Press 3-4 pumps of Hyaluronic Marine Serum into face, neck and décolleté until evenly distributed. Using the Micro Dermal Roller, gently roll the tool upward from the jawline to optimize absorption and inspire microcirculation.
Pat 2 pumps of Age Defiance Eye Serum into the delicate skin around the eye, starting with the inside corner, down and around the orbital bone, where dark circles and puffiness may settle, to the outside corner where crow’s feet form. Continue up towards the lid and brow bone, patting lightly until absorbed.
Massage a small scoop of Marigold Hydrating Creme into dewy skin to help the serums penetrate even deeper, sealing in nourishment and imparting intense moisture.
