Unchecked beauty formulas and untrustworthy concoctions can have numerous long term effects on your general health and wellbeing. But if you’re fed up with investing in skin and hair care solutions that don’t work for you, or you’re unsure of the active ingredients in the products you use, now is the time to pause and choose a brand that is completely honest about the ingredients in their products and formulated by people with the qualifications to ensure their products are of the highest quality imaginable.

Starest Natural Skincare is an organic hair and skincare brand founded by Esther Julius, a qualified specialist nurse with a diploma in natural skincare and haircare. We recently caught up with the business owner to hear about the inspirational story that led to the birth of her one of a kind brand.

“My journey started in 2015 when I started researching the ingredients in my skincare products. I discovered a lot of them were full of chemicals and toxic ingredients which are not only harmful to the skin but are also linked to cancer, obesity, infertility, hormonal problems and respiratory issues. I used commercial products containing harmful chemicals which were causing skin irritations and discolouration. I got tired of trying different products and experiencing certain skin issues over and over again. I became really uncomfortable about the ingredients in my skincare products due to their potentially harmful side effects. As a qualified specialist nurse, I knew the long-term significant impact this could have on my health.”
“My quest for safer skincare products soon became an interest that grew steadily and turned to my passion. I started making my own natural skin care products to avoid toxic exposure and to give me control over the ingredients that go on my skin. After completing a diploma course in natural skincare and haircare along with sleepless nights perfecting my formulas, Starest was created to give people a natural and organic alternative to chemical-laden commercial skincare products”.
