Learning more about: organic Pai Skincare

I recently made a very exciting skincare discovery – often few and far between – in the form of the rather gorgeous UK-based Pai Skincare. Rated the number one organic skincare brand by Grazia UK – definitely no mean feat – it was developed by founder Sarah Brown after years of battling skin allergies with seemingly no solution in sight. “I couldn’t find anything on the market that was truly natural and worked for me,” she says, “and I was also exasperated by the number of beauty products claiming to be ‘organic’ that weren’t certified and contained a list of chemicals as long as your arm.” It was only natural (pardon the pun) therefore that the Pai organic range was designed with sensitive and allergy-prone skin in mind, and all of the products on offer are made from only the purest plant extracts and are free from chemical irritants such as Alcohol, Propylene Glycol and Phenoxyethanol. They are also all certified organic by the Soil Association, and all ingredients are listed in plain English on the label so you know exactly what is in the bottle – a huge relief after years of being blinded by science by many a skincare brand!
My first foray into the world of Pai is via their long-awaited new Fragonia & Sea Buckthorn Instant Hand Therapy Cream, which is a right treat for the mitts if ever there was one. I’m hugely fussy when it comes to hand creams – there are far too many smelly, greasy, runny ones on the market IMHO – and this one is an absolute winner on all fronts. Perfect for those in the Northern Hemisphere battling cold weather and central heating, it is suitable for all skin types, but particularly effective for dry, chapped and sensitive skin. Fragonia is famed for its anti-inflammatory properties, while Seabuckthorn, Rosehip and Grape Seed extracts promote cell regeneration and skin restructure over time. Your hands will be soothed, hydrated and conditioned after just one application, and I loved the way that it also hydrated my cuticles and was fast absorbing with zero greasy residue. Oh and did I mention the beautiful packaging? Adore this stuff! Check out more about this wonderful brand by visiting
