4 Simple Rituals With Obakki Skincare

January 31, 2024

To find a moment of reconnection with nature’s wisdom, it’s all about simple daily rituals at home; brewing a pot of tea, listening to a song, or practising a skincare routine. This philosophy has guided the Canadian-made, African-sourced Obakki Skincare Collection. A purpose-led lifestyle brand known for their small batch and handcrafted products, Obakki is now bringing their lifestyle-changing mentality to skincare.

Just like their intention in selecting home décor, sustainability is at the heart of each product in this inspiring new collection. We admire Obakki’s commitment in tracing the origin of each plant-based ingredient of their new lotions, facial and bath oils. With single-ingredient concentrations, Obakki Skincare invites us to personalise our results by hand-selecting and layering a unique combination of formulations. And in celebration of the planet and its raw ingredients, all of Obakki’s packaging is made with 100 per cent compostable millboard.

Create the ideal relaxation environment with the power of Obakki’s lavishly scented Organic Bath Oil line. The Earthy, Sensual and Invigorating scents are each rich in vitamins, antioxidants and sunflower seed oil. Experience three distinctly scented spa-escapes, shopping the evocative, intoxicating and vivid Bath Oil Discovery Set ($98).

All it takes is one facial oil for some, while for others the skin benefits from a creative combination. Either way, indulge in the moisturising, nourishing and toning properties of an organic face oil, with a sample of each new product in Obakki’s Facial Oil Discovery Set ($68). As each is made with a single ingredient, notice how the skin becomes dramatically more moisturised, plump, and protected when applying drops of 100% Baobab, Macadamia and Prickly Pear.

With an intoxicating blend of sandalwood, vetiver, and amber, the Obakki Sugar Scrub inspires deep relaxation ($55). Made with natural, skin-replenishing ingredients including naturally occurring AHA, shea butter, cocoa butter, vitamin E, and essential oils, the scrub gently exfoliates to illuminate the skin and lock in hydration.

Made purely with 100 per cent Organic Nilotica, the Obakki Unscented Shea Butter hydrates, brightens, and evens out the skin ($39). In addition to vitamins A, E, K, the incredibly moisturising Nilotica contains 25% more oleic acid than standard shea butter, keeping skin hydrated and plump.
