  • Positive Updates on our Ingredients Policy

    Aurelia Probiotic Skincare prides itself on only using the best ingredients that benefit your skin. We also believe in letting you know exactly what ingredients we use in our products and the reasons why we avoid certain commonly used ingredients.

    Our range is free from a number of harmful and unethical ingredients which include: synthetic fragrances, colorants, parabens, mineral oils, silicones, sulphates, propylene glycol, phthalates, GMO, PEGs, TEA, DEA, MI, formaldehyde, urea, mercury, lead and bee venom. We have recently updated our website to include even more information on the ingredients you won't find in Aurelia Probiotic Skincare - something we're really proud of.

    free from MI

    One question we're often asked is whether we include the ingredient Methylisothiazolinone (MI). Used as a preservative in cosmetics, MI is a colourless liquid that's also used to preserve paint and can cause severe itching, burning, redness and swelling.

    We can all agree that it sounds like a pretty nasty ingredient, and one that should definitely not be present in skincare products. Yet, MI can be found in many well known brands even though it is widely recognised that it can cause instant skin irritation. We never use MI and are one of the few brands highlighting this to our customers. A frightening fact is that many of the high-end manufacturers seem unwilling to change the formulas containing MI. So always remember to check the ingredients list, steering clear of any product containing the chemical as one in ten people are allergic today.

    Here at Aurelia, our Free From promise is an integral part of the brand philosophy. We are passionate about the removal of harmful and unnecessary chemicals from our probiotic skincare line. Our formulations are naturally sourced and organic where possible and we never test on animals. We have created a new film which highlights Aurelia Probiotic Skincare's ethical philosophy and our focus on pure and sustainably-sourced botanicals. Watch it below!

    If you have any questions please contact us at customerservices@aureliaskincare.com, we'd love to hear from you!

  • Natural Ingredient Focus: Argan Oil

    Here at Aurelia Probiotic Skincare we are all about shedding light on exciting natural ingredients that are extremely beneficial for the skin. Not only do our products contain our powerful signature probiotics and peptides but nourishing and rich botanicals that offer a whole host of skincare benefits.argan-treeWe wanted to focus on the hugely popular and wonderfully effective Moroccan Argan oil - a centuries-old remedy for a wide variety of skin complaints. Known as 'Moroccan Gold' this rich, smoothing emollient is extracted from the fruit of the Argan tree and has been used for centuries by Moroccan women to help moisturise and revitalise their skin. Found in the south-western corner of Morocco, the Argan tree's oil is produced by cold-pressing the seeds inside the nut of the Argan fruit. It is very rich in Vitamin E and linolenic acid (an essential fatty acid) and Omega 6, which helps keep skin healthy and supple.

    Argan oil features in our Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser to soften, smooth and moisturise your skin. The oil has also been traditionally used as a treatment for acne-prone skin, so, along with the balancing probiotics and soothing aloe vera present in the Day Moisturiser, you'll be helping to treat breakouts and to help reduce acne scars. The Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser is non-comedogenic so won't clog pores, leading to healthy, hydrated, clear skin.

  • One Year On Since Our Success in the Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible!

    When we entered our core range of Aurelia Probiotic Skincare products in to the Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible to be tested only a few weeks after our launch in January 2013, we could only dream of seeing one of our products in the final published book. You can imagine how delighted we were when all five of the products we entered made it on to the winning pages, with our Cell Revitalise Night Moisturiser winning the Night Treatment category! Not only did our gorgeous night cream come top, but it achieved one of the highest scores in 18 years of Beauty Bible history with an astonishing 9.5/10!

    We can hardly believe it has been a year since the Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible was published and we wanted to celebrate by revisiting the wonderful interview we filmed with the Beauty Bible founders Jo Fairley and Sarah Stacey when the unprecedented results were announced.

    The Beauty Bible is the result of the largest independent cosmetic trials worldwide with a total of 2,400 women trialling thousands of products.  The testers give an unbiased opinion on all aspects of the products ensuring that everything from texture, fragrance, overall look and efficacy of the product is taken in to consideration. Watch our latest series of films to find out more about this wonderful beauty institution!

    We loved hearing the fascinating story of the first ever Beauty Bible and the way in which the series has evolved in its 18-year history.

    Jo Fairley discusses the incredible success we had in submitting five products, all of which made it in to the book!

    So much so, we were awarded the first ever Beauty Bible Best New Brand award for 2014 as described by Sarah!

    Aurelia Probiotic Skincare is the perfect mix of science, nature and luxury and Sarah Stacey, co-founder and You Magazine Health Editor sees the future of skincare mirroring this...

  • Get Sunshine Ready with our Body Oil

    When the sun starts to shine, like it has been this glorious week in London, we inevitably start to think about baring a little more flesh and maybe, just maybe, foregoing the black tights or jeans in place of bare legs and skirts! For this you need confidence in your skin, so nourishing and hydrating your body every day is key when the temperatures start to rise. Apply our Firm & Revitalise Dry Body Oil daily, to wet or dry skin for supple, firm and deeply nourished legs and arms. The 'dry' nature of the body oil means it takes no time at all to absorb and the non-greasy texture means a little goes a long way. Fragranced with neroli, lavender, rose and mandarin and containing rich oils like macadamia, borage and Hawaiian kukui, the Firm & Revitalise Dry Body Oil is a firm favourite among top beauty journalists and has been featured in some gorgeous publications - most recently in Psychologies and You Magazine.

  • Claire Vero on her Fun & Stylish Wardrobe - as Featured in Psychologies

    We loved seeing Psychologies Magazine's piece on our founder Claire Vero who was featured not for her impressive skincare expertise, but for her fashionable office wardrobe! Not only is Claire an award winning business owner, but she has high fashion credentials with a floral, bright style after "shedding her corporate uniform" of monochrome shades and plain suits.

    Psychologies_April2015

    "Yes I have a serious business to run but I still want to look fun and stylish too" - Claire

    In an office full of women who adore their clothes, we love to take inspiration from designers' seasonal trends and are always inspired by catwalk make-up looks which are more and more centred around skin. It's great working in skincare as we are always coming up with ways to update dewiness and glow and trying to fit the trend to the Aurelia Probiotic Skincare product!

    We couldn't be more proud to see Claire featured in such a gorgeous fashion-centred piece, as her style is so fresh, and really sets the tone for a young, British company that's focusing on next-generation technology in a classic, natural format.

    Love, Aurelia x

  • Aurelia Probiotic Skincare - the path to clearer, healthier skin

    Here at Aurelia Probiotic Skincare we’re often asked about the causes of acne, and how some of our products can help to soothe and prevent breakouts. We wanted to focus on some tips and techniques you can use that will help to alleviate breakouts and to help you tailor your skincare routine to suit your needs.

    Why do we get acne?
    Acne and breakouts can start to affect skin from our teens onwards. Sometimes acne can begin well into adulthood and is normally caused by hormonal imbalances and changes or emotional stress. The blemishes themselves are caused by an inflammation of the sebum gland in a hair follicle and once this occurs, dead skin, oil build-up and dirt can get trapped in the pore, causing swelling, redness and sometimes a whitehead. It’s important to look for skincare products that are non-pore blocking (non-comedogenic) like the products in the Aurelia Probiotic Skincare range. The important thing about treating acne and breakouts is not to let it panic you or cause you stress. It can be difficult not to pick or squeeze blemishes but this will make them worse, or cause longer lasting scarring.

    Common mistakes
    There are a lot of ways you can help to alleviate the symptoms, but by nourishing your skin rather than drying it out, you’ll have a better chance of reducing breakouts. It is really important to keep acne prone skin clean, but the type of cleanser you are using can sometimes make things worse. A common mistake people make is to use a foaming cleanser, to get that squeaky-clean, tight feeling. However this can cause an upset in skin’s balance of natural oils. The skin’s acid mantel is integral to overall hydration, and stripping your skin using products containing harsh sulfates will make matters worse. Another common mistake is to use facial wipes which often contain methylisothiazolinone (MI), a preservative that can cause major irritation and is also used to preserve domestic cleaning products and paint! Try not to overload the skin with products, but pare your routine back and use nourishing, gentle and calming products. Sufferers of acne are often nervous of exfoliating, as damaging breakouts with abrasive scrubs can spread bacteria and lengthen the healing process. It is however very important to exfoliate acne-prone skin, and by using a gentle yet effective exfoliating mask once a week you will reduce dead skin build up and soften skin texture.

    Our recommended routine:
    Here at Aurelia we have a strict free-from ingredients policy, so you won’t find any of the harsher chemicals in our products. We advocate a twice daily cleanse with our Miracle Cleanser, a cream based, soothing product that leaves skin feeling hydrated, supple and soft, but above all clean. Containing decongesting eucalyptus and calming probiotics and chamomile, the Miracle Cleanser works well on acne-prone skin to soothe and nourish from step one. The soft antibacterial bamboo muslin is perfect for removal as it will gently buff the skin, resulting in a radiant, glowing complexion that won’t feel stripped or tight but balanced, clean and fresh.

    MiracleCleanser_OpenTop_3609

    Follow the cleanser with our Revitalise & Glow Serum in the morning for non-greasy yet nourishing hydration. The Revitalise & Glow Serum is wonderful because you will get the benefits of the hydrating peptide complex, the soothing probiotics and the antioxidant-rich botanics but in a very lightweight texture. This fluid serum absorbs very easily and deposits the luxury ingredients where they are most needed. Follow with the Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser for supple, smooth and nourished skin with an even texture. This silicone-free moisturiser creates the perfect base for makeup and contains aloe vera to soothe breakouts and vitamin E to reduce the appearance of acne scars.

    Exfoliation with the Refine & Polish Miracle Balm can be hugely beneficial for congested, acne prone and oily skins. Gentle exfoliation is key, as the build-up of dead skin leads to daily impurities and make-up settling in pores and causing breakouts or blackheads. Using the Miracle Balm twice a week as a mask will result in smoother skin to the touch, a clearer complexion and a reduction in pore size. Instead of massaging the product into the skin, press the balm over the face, avoiding the eye area and leave for 5-10 minutes to let the enzymes work. The beauty of the Miracle Balm is that it helps to rebalance the sebum levels in your skin, as it does not leave you feeling dry, tight or stripped of oils. As an oil-based texture which emulsifies on contact with water, the Refine & Polish Miracle Balm helps to alleviate the signs of dryness by addressing flakiness and leaving the skin supple. Exfoliation in this way will also increase the effectiveness of subsequent skincare products, as serums and creams can then penetrate beyond the top layer of dead skin, depositing the ingredients and probiotic technology where they are most needed.
