All about: Savar natural New Zealand skincare


A few weeks ago I came across Savar, a New Zealand made 99 per cent natural premium skincare range that is pretty impressive… and I’m a hard one to impress!
It was launched by a rather clever woman called Vicky Woolford late last year, and since then has gone great guns both in New Zealand and farther afield. Sold through leading retailers and online, the still-young company ship worldwide and now have loyal customers in the UK, US and Australia as well, of course, as New Zealand.
Vicky told me that Savar has been a labour of love for her. A huge fan of natural beauty products, “I started developing it because I felt there was a gap in the market for a natural range that was the whole sensory experience. From the stylish packaging to the beautifully fragranced, well-absorbed formulations…” The end result is a range that combines nature, style and sustainability, and I was super impressed by the beautiful packaging before I’d even popped the caps! Vicky is also a contemporary artist, “and it was important to me that the high end packaging suited my modern aesthetic as well as being kind to the planet.”
The twelve product-strong collection boasts an ingredient list that pretty much encompasses an entire plant catalogue, and sounds good enough to eat. You’ll find in there New Zealand blackcurrant oil, organic bilberry, marshmallow extract, organic fig, lime flower, lemon balm and organic goji berries – and much more.
I’ve just started using their Essential Cleansing Lotion, which is a real beauty and perfect for dry and sensitive skin over the winter months in particular. Super luxurious and yummy to use, its ingredients include New Zealand calendula to soothe the skin, organic sunflower (moisturising, conditioning and great for dry and sensitive skin) and sweet orange to refine pores and remove excess oil.
 As well as smelling like heaven it actually works hard, removing most mascara in  afew swipes. Their Instant Boost Multi Toner is perfect for popping on after or just spritzing on throughout the day, and works at refining pores, reducing shine and setting make up.

Savar are also consciously committed to sustainability, with low carbon-emission practices, recyclable packaging, and 10 per cent of our profits going straight to charitable organisations, “making us one of the most generous donors of any skin care company in the world.” Now THAT is something to be proud of!
