It is no secret that we have all become more conscious of what we put in our bodies and on our skin, which is why I was so excited to discover Australia’s newest beauty brand Asriq, which launched in December last year.

Founded by Ashleigh Sims, Asriq offers vitamin-rich perfume oils with naturally derived ingredients designed to nourish the body.

Asriq’s vegan friendly formula is a refined combination of premium hero oils paired with the most beautiful aromas. Enriched with high levels of antioxidants, vitamins A, B, C and E, as well as omegas, this body oil not only provides nutrients for the skin, but also promotes hair and nail growth – the ultimate all-in-one fragrance and moisturiser.

“I was travelling through Egypt and all the souks were lined with these incredible perfume oils. I wanted to bring this concept back to Australia but infuse them with truly nourishing ingredients for the skin. That’s how Asriq was born.”

The cruelty free range currently boasts two beautiful fragrances: Bondi and Luxor. Bondi is a blend of salty seas and succulent summer blooms, inspired by Bondi Beach itself. Luxor on the other hand exudes a seductive scent worthy of the Pharaohs (gods and goddesses of Ancient Egypt), smelling effortlessly luxurious.

Daily use of Asriq body oils will assist in overall hydration, skin tone and elasticity, whilst scenting the skin. Unlike perfume, which is made with alcohol that dries the skin, Asriq is designed to replenish the skin’s nutrients.

Asriq body oils contain an array of hero oils including Rosehip oil contains provitamin A and is packed with essential fatty acids like omega 3 and omega 6. This beauty ingredient hydrates, moisturises and brightens your skin, boosts collagen formation and protects against sun damage. Other benefits include the reduction of scars, hyperpigmentation and skin inflammation.

In addition, Argan oil moisturises your skin, keeping it hydrated and assisting with anti-ageing. Asriq also features Vitamin E and fatty acid packed Grape Seed Oil.

Another hero oil in Asriq is coconut oil. It’s no secret that this oil is full of goodness. Specifically, coconut oil helps protect the skin from microorganisms as it contains lauric acid. Studies have shown that lauric acid is most effective at blocking the growth of bacteria. This means that Asriq’s coconut oil doesn’t only keep your skin hydrated and youthful, it also assists in protecting your skin and keeping it healthy.

Furthermore, Asriq boasts hydrating sunflower and Aloe Vera oils. Apricot kernel oil is also included for rich vitamin E and resembles the natural sebum produced in human skin. Thus smoothing out blemishes, wrinkles and fine lines. Finally, evening primrose oil soothes and moisturises the skin while enhancing its elasticity. This natural ingredient helps promote a healthy, clear and rejuvenated complexion while addressing roughness, wrinkles, redness and dryness.

Vitamin E is of course the skincare vitamin staple, which exists in most of these natural oils that Asriq is made up of. Vitamin E is known to reduce inflammation, skin-ageing and protects against environmental pollution and UV radiation. Coming into summer, this is a must for all sun worshipers around Australia out there, as Asriq body oils assist with sun damage and pigmentation.
