Hi, and thanks for visiting our blog.
The eponymous brand Mukti (mooktee) is a luxurious Australian certified organic spa and retail range. Established since 2000, we have a loyal and dedicated following. Unlike the present day saturation of pseudo-natural and organic products, the development of the range came about as a response to the limited product ranges that were available in the marketplace at that time.
Having successfully owned and operated several salons in Brisbane, Australia, I relocated to the Sunshine Coast hinterland to raise my children and began my business when I recognised a niche gap in the skincare industry, as well as a need for consumer education.
My interest in herbalism and natural therapies is steeped in family tradition and was passed down by my Swedish great grandfather, who was a pharmacist and owned an apothecary in Germany.
For well over a decade, I have independently created and formulated my own chemical-free beauty products (through tenacious trial and testing), from quality certified organic ingredients that have been carefully selected to work synergistically with the skin.
Mukti Organic Skincare has won numerous awards, as well as awards for my product formulations.
My passion is to formulate and I have created personalised ranges for clients (OEM). I love to study and have qualifications in cosmetic chemistry, natural and beauty therapy and business management, and I am an accredited educational trainer.
I’m so glad I stayed true to my vision, because after much work and research, Mukti Organic Skincare was granted certified organic status by the OFC in 2006.
We are 100% Australian owned and our products are manufactured as well as marketed by the same company.
The latest development in spa destinations is to create a centre for healing, wellness and natural aesthetics while consciously reducing the environmental footprint. Our products are right on trend with the current consumer demand. They nourish the body, enhance ecological harmony, and have been produced with minimal impact.
The green spa movement incorporates a sense of responsibility to reduce exposure to toxic hazardous substances and to minimise waste generation. It shares a concern for the wellbeing of its guests as well as the planet.
Our range has been accepted into high-end department stores such as Harvey Nichols Hong Kong and Takashimaya Singapore. We export internationally and are currently producing an exclusive certified organic premium age defence range.
My team and I are passionate about bringing you the purest skincare products available, handcrafted in small batches on a daily basis to maintain absolute freshness. We make Mukti Organic Skincare in the clean, green, rolling hills of Maleny in Australia’s Sunshine Coast hinterland, an eco-conscious community where people value organic lifestyles and environmental sustainability.
I began this blog to get the word out that it’s not necessary to poison your body in order to have beautiful skin, and to advocate for truth in labelling.
Organic skincare is part of the wider organics movement, so I also blog about issues relating to environmental sustainability, conservation, organic health and beauty and spirituality — all of which combine to create happy, balanced people and a healthy planet.
Happy reading — please share your comments and suggestions about the blog or my products with me.

The 5 Guiding Principles of Mukti Organic Skincare
1. We believe in our products
The Mukti Organic Skincare team believe we make the best skincare products on the planet. We stringently uphold our commitment to quality and purity and we are so confident that you will love our products as much as we do, that we offer a full money back guarantee.
2. We trade in fairness and kindness
We do our utmost to support fair trade. We always source ingredients that are produced using methods that are sustainable for farmers, their local communities and the environment. It is our mission to help communities grow and prosper, rather than exploit them. We believe all beings have the right to a humane life, so we have never and will never test on animals. We proudly display the Choose Cruelty Free ‘Not Tested On Animals’ logo on all our products.
3. We think it’s easy being green
We obtained organic certification from the Organic Food Chain (OFC) in 2006 (OK it wasn’t that easy!), which ensures our skincare products are produced in an environmentally responsible way. Our product ingredients are GMO-free sourced sustainably. We reduce, reuse and recycle, and all our packaging is recyclable (and pretty too).

4. We educate consumers
Via the Mukti blog we educate consumers about organic health and beauty, environmental sustainability and achieving balance and harmony of body, mind and spirit. Mukti is a determined eco-activist and an advocate of truth in labelling. If you don’t know how to read and interpret skincare and cosmetics labels, then you’re placing trust in someone else, who may not always have your best interests at heart.
5. We are here to be of service
This is one of our core principles — we are here to help you. Please let us know what we can do for you to make your Mukti Organic Skincare experience even more memorable and enjoyable. We are always open to feedback. Any ideas or suggestions on how we can improve our products are most appreciated.
Mukti Organic Skincare is proudly Australian Made and Owned.
