Grown Alchemist - Which products are best for my skin type?

Introducing Grown Alchemist. Certified Organic Skincare.

Grown Alchemist are an Australian skin care brand based in Melbourne. They have created an advanced range of skin care products using certified natural botanical ingredients and powerful natural formulations to provide ultimate skincare results without the damaging effects of artificial ingredients found in many skin care products. 

Their products work in synchronicity with the body; restoring skin function, detoxing the skin then activating skin function using potent natural ingredients. 

Their packaging is all recyclable. And it’s beautiful; apothecary style bottles and non-leeching lined aluminium tubes. 

They’re also certified cruelty free by PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies Program. They don’t test on animals at any stage of their product development all the way through to production.

Skincare Routine... which products to use and in which order?

With so many products, knowing which products to use when can be confusing. Let’s talk skincare routine steps. Grown Alchemist recommend a daily AM and PM skincare routine, to Cleanse, Detox and Activate your skin, and take it one step further by using an Exfoliator and Masque 2 to 3 times per week. 

Ageing of our skin starts at a cellular level when we are 25! Our bodies start to slow down, including producing less collagen at a rate of about once percent less per year. In our 50's almost no new collagen is produced in our bodies. When you enter into your late 20's, consider changing to an anti-ageing skincare routine to help fine lines, skin firmness and radiance.

Follow our skincare routine to maximise the benefits of the Grown Alchemist Range:


1. CLEANSE - Daily AM & PM

Single Cleanse recommended in the AM with the Gentle Gel Cleanser.  

 In the PM, double cleanse to get rid of the day’s grime, dirt, oil and makeup. Use the Hydra Restore Cream Cleanser or the Hydra + Oil Gel Facial Cleaner (depending on your skin type) for your first cleanse, followed by a second cleanse with the Gentle Gel Cleanser.

After double-cleansing and gentle exfoliation your skin is primped to receive nourishing actives from specialty treatment masques 2-3 times per week.

Following cleansing, it is critical to nurture the process of dermal detoxification. Our ‘Detox’ phase fights the release of damaging free-radicals, improving the oxidative state of the skin, restoring cellular function and overall skin health. This restoration of skin health results, in turn, maximizes the absorption, benefits, and results of topical actives that follow. Apply daily in the AM and PM.



Detox Serum

• Antioxidant+3 to neutralise free radicals •  Tri-peptides to repair DNA •  Aloe Vera to heal

    (I read halfway into the comments…couldn’t finish them all – over 300 of them sitting smugly, dropped by wonderful and pleasant people).
    I don’t know how you did it, but I’ve fallen in love with you (no homo pls!) especially your personality and diligence as a blogger.

    Is there a format bloggers should follow when replying to comments on their blogs?
    Calling me a son of a gun is certainly the most interesting greeting I’ve received in a while!
