Olivia Newton-John creates skincare range
There are 10 products in the Retreatment Botanics collection
Australian singer Olivia Newton-John has launched an all-natural skincare range which is available online and at Gaia, the Byron Bay retreat and spa she co-founded in 2005 (see SB10/3 p46). Retreatment Botanics comprises 10 products which blend extracts from native plants, such as banksia flower and kakadu plum, with antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamins A, C & E to target ageing and skincare concerns. Newton-John says that as Gaia successfully grew into “a place of beauty that was nurturing and gentle on the soul, I dreamt of an equally beautiful, nurturing skincare range that really worked”.
