The report named Australian skincare company Golden 8 as a brand to watch in 2019, with their hero product Anti-Ageing Face Serum shortlisted at the Cosmoprof Asia 2018 Awards.

Golden 8 was created out of research into the use of crocodile oil and its powerful effects on the skin.

The oil is full of Omega 3,6,7, and 9, which all add to the skin’s vitality and integrity.

Crocodile Oil is one of the rare sources of Omega 7, an Omega that naturally decreases in the body with age, resulting in dull, lifeless and lined skin.

The oil is anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and is packed with vitamins, peptides and naturally occurring antioxidants to help counteract the visible signs of ageing, treat skin conditions and improve the overall health of skin.

Josephine Robson, Golden 8 founder, said: “We’re thrilled to have Golden 8’s Anti-Ageing Face Serum (RRP $39.95, 30ml) shortlisted for Cosmoprof Trends curated by BEAUTYSTREAMS and to hear that Australian native ingredients are set to be the next big thing in skincare!”

“We didn’t need to scour the globe for the world’s best skincare ingredients, we discovered them right here in the Australian outback and it’s great to see the benefits of native ingredients such as Crocodile Oil being recognised on a global scale,” she added.

Golden 8 brand ambassador, Kaia Wright, wife of Matt Wright – the star of international adventure television series Outback Wrangler — echoes Josephine’s sentiments. “Living in the Australian outback, I have been exposed to the benefits of native ingredients from Kakadu Plum, to Lemon Myrtle and now Crocodile Oil,” she said. “It’s exciting to know that the popularity of a brand like Golden 8, that harnesses native Australian ingredients is set to rise!”

The hero product in the range, Golden 8’s Anti-Ageing Face Serum, is Kaia’s go-to skincare product. “I have always been a fan of face oils and when I discovered Golden 8’s Anti-Ageing Face Serum and experienced first-hand how hydrated it made my skin, without leaving it greasy, I was sold! This product is known as a ‘miracle oil’ and for good reason! My skin drinks it, it doesn’t clog pores and makes me look fresh, reducing fine lines and plumping my skin,” said Kaia.

Alongside the Anti-Ageing Face Serum, Golden 8 skincare includes Body Lotion (RRP $24.95, 300ml), Body Balm (RRP $22.95, 100g), Soothing Cream (RRP $22.95, 100ml) and Hand Cream (RRP $19.95, 125ml).
