Hi, I'm Nishty, Owner and Head Formulator of BasiK Organics, and advocate of pure, clean products.
I was that new mama who was frustrated and trying to find safe, clean, and trusted skin care for me and my little one.
Right at the beginning, my journey started when I had two miscarriages and started to look at what I was putting into and on my body including my highly scented skin care products. Once I started using natural organic products, I was blessed with my rainbow baby Brielle.
The Beginning of My Journey
With so much misinformation and claims of being safe, natural and toxin free in the skincare market I was not convinced all these products were “safe” for my skin and feared what unknown chemicals I was absorbing which led me to research ‘trusted’ baby skincare on the market. I was shocked by my findings and knew then this was only the start of my journey.
Brielle suffered a skin reaction at two weeks old after we had been using “safe” baby products on her skin. The doctors mentioned allergies and testing but my mothering instinct was strong and through the process of elimination I removed products one by one and slowly introduced my own formulations made from simple ingredients from my pantry. Her skin became clear and glowing and my confidence in these products was gone.
Following my intuition
As a mum and a professional athlete with the Australasian Natural Bodybuilding Federation (ANB), I understand the importance of good nutrition and how the right foods improve our daily performance, similarly I've adopted that same strategy when it comes to taking care of our skin.
Like any parent I wanted worry free products I could use on my baby which led me to develop my own clean formulations. At the early stages of launching my own range, I acquired BasiK Organics in 2021. As an established Australian organic skincare brand, founded in 2013, the products and philosophy aligned with my mission to give every parent the peace of mind with organic products for them and their little ones— sans the worries.
Through my own experience of becoming a mama, I realised the importance of booking in time for me, even if it's just a 10-minute skincare retreat for myself. Through these practices I started feeling myself again. With that, I was inspired to create our Em-BasiK range- a place to retreat, revive and reconnect. All those loving practices we do with baby but all for you! Am I back to myself yet? I would say it's a practice, and when I do it every day I get better and better. I can’t wait for you to try them for yourself!
Many children around the world don’t have access to life saving care and surgery and this breaks my heart. So, for every BasiK Organics product purchased I will donate $1 to a charity which provides lifesaving surgery especially for those children in need of immediate care.
With love and light
