In the world of luxury skin care, the price tag often overshadows the true value of the product. Many luxury brands charge premium prices for the prestige associated with their name, without offering a significant increase in quality or formula potency.
Common Pitfalls When Shopping For High-End Skin Care
When investing in high-end skin care, it is essential to understand what you are actually paying for.
One common pitfall is associating water with moisturisation and oil with oiliness. Water does not moisturise your skin or provide any tangible benefits. Despite this, you’ll notice water is the most abundant ingredient in virtually all creams and serums, including high-end ones. Water dilutes the formula so that it feels 'light' on the skin. The 'lightness' you experience is the water evaporating from your skin, and comprises up to 80% of the formula - that's expensive water!
Skin care formulated with water must be stabilised with emulsifiers and preservatives. Neither of these chemicals are beneficial to the skin - in fact both have been associated with deterioration of skin health.
High end skin care does not leave out these potentially harmful ingredients. In fact, we believe that the negative effects of emulsifiers and preservatives on skin and overall health potentially outweigh any age-defying benefits of the formula.
Our skin is a living part of our bodies. It interacts with our immune system, and is capable of absorbing some of the components added to skin care products. It makes sense to feed our skin real food, free of the synthetic ingredients added to virtually all skin care.
The Mokosh Formula
We take pride in delivering water-free formulas that are also free of the health-disrupting effects of emulsifiers and preservatives. Instead we include only pure certified organic, botanical ingredients. Our focus is on optimising nutrition, potency and skin health. And because they are concentrated, a small amount goes a long way, which means Mokosh products are also cost-effective.
Our dedication to using 100% certified organic ingredients guarantees that your skin is exposed to only the highest quality botanicals. By standing firmly against the use of palm oil and synthetic ingredients, we offer skin care that’s best for you and your skin, and also treads lightly on the planet.
But don’t just take our word for it, our formulas have been awarded again and again by leaders in the industry.
Beyond Formula: Curating a High-Quality Experience
Like conventional luxury brands, we understand the value of curating an experience. For us, that means personalised customer care, quality packaging and delivery, and beautiful branding.
We go the extra mile to ensure that all orders are delivered with express postage and include cooler packs when necessary (such as for longer distances or hot weather conditions).
We offer complimentary, one-on-one consultations with our founder, Marion. During these conversations, Marion provides tailored product and routine recommendations to address your unique skin concerns, ensuring that you receive the most effective solutions for your specific needs.
We also stand out from the crowd by offering a timeless, minimalist aesthetic. Our products are designed to complement your space rather than clutter it. Instead of trend-based branding and flashy marketing tactics, we aim to make our brand relevant and sustainable for years to come.
The Future of Luxury Skin Care
We are revolutionising the skin care industry by focusing on what truly matters: the quality and potency of formulations. As a brand, we are deeply committed to sustainability and hope that by demystifying skin care we can help to create a new standard of luxury - one that prioritises efficacy, transparency and environmental responsibility.
