Here is a list of just a few of the botanical ingredients we use in Outback Organics skin care products, and an insight into why we love them.

Lemon Myrtle Oil

Antibacterial essential oil from Australia with a fresh citrus fragrance. Used by Indigenous people as a tonic and stimulant. These properties lend the oil to being an excellent active ingredient within skincare products.
