We are beyond grateful to be sharing this interview for our Power Of Magic series with the Founder & CEO of Kora Organics, Super Model & busy Mother of 3 , Wife & fellow believer of Magic, Miranda Kerr.
What we love so much about Kora Organics is that not only are all of her products natural; but through the manufacturing process, all of their formulas are touched upon by Rose Quartz - infusing the vibrations of self love into all of their products.
Sitting along side an endless offering of natural & organic skincare at Kora, you can also shop two of our favourite KKJ necklaces in the stone of love, Rose Quartz; our Lunar Quartz Necklace & Keep Me Calm Necklace.
We hope you enjoy this very special interview,
With love & gratitude,
All of your products are infused with Rose Quartz- this truly makes your products magic. Why Rose Quartz? Has this been a crystal you have always been drawn to?
I love crystals, and especially Rose Quartz. When I was a child, my Grandfather was a house mover and he would find these big geode crystals where they were digging and bring them home for my Grandmother. I was always so fascinated by them, but it wasn’t until a trip to Byron Bay when I was 13 years old that I found a crystal store that explained crystals and all their different meanings - how they can help balance certain aspects of a person’s life, bring positive energy into a space, etc.
I was immediately drawn to the Rose Quartz! Rose Quartz supports love, happiness and intuition; nurtures the heart energy and brings about giving and receiving love in your life. I have crystals all throughout my home, I carry them with me everywhere I go, I use them for meditation and love the energy and magic they bring to my life. This is why I also incorporated crystals into my KORA Organics range. All KORA products are filtered through rose quartz during the manufacturing process, which means that every single product gets touched upon and energized by Rose Quartz to infuse the vibration of love into the products & onto our customers
Do you have go-to KORA product & why?
All of KORA Organics products are amazing for healthy, glowing skin, so I rely on all of them. But if I had to choose, I’d say my most go-to products are the Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask, Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum and Noni Glow Face Oil – these 3 items are like an instant at-home facial. I use the Turmeric Mask in the shower every morning as a facial scrub and leave on 1-2 times a week as a mask. It brightens, deeply cleanses, evens skin tone and leaves my skin super smooth, polished and bright.
Why skincare? What drew you to creating KORA Organics?
KORA was created from a really authentic place. It is my baby that I’ve built from the ground up. Having had a passion for health & wellness since a young age, I have always been interested in finding healthy, organic alternatives where possible. I was looking for skincare products that were certified organic and delivered the results I needed, but I was unable to find anything that really worked. This is what led me to begin creating my own range. I thought if I had a need for these products, so would others. My goal when first developing KORA was to create products that were healthy to use and delivered super powerful results. I wanted the products to contain organic ingredients of the highest quality and integrity. There is often a misconception that organic skincare isn't as powerful as mainstream skincare, but organic ingredients can contain up to 60% higher antioxidant levels — therefore, they produce more potent results than non-organic skincare, or even “clean” skincare for that matter.
What makes KORA products certified organic?
All KORA Organics products are certified organic by COSMOS/Ecocert. Being Certified Organic takes clean beauty to a whole new level. Not only are our products healthy and safe to use and contain no nasty chemicals but the certified organic ingredients used are much more powerful. Being truly ‘certified organic’ is what sets us apart from other brands that claim to be clean or organic. This requires a lot of work and annual auditing, but it ensures our brand has integrity and transparency. Our customers can trust what they are putting on their skin is what it claims to be. They can have confidence in the products they are using and the results they are getting.
Being a busy mum, wife & businesswomen, what are your self-care non-negotiable for each day?
My skincare routine is a big part of my self-care and a non-negotiable. It is a moment I look forward to morning and night, they are my self-care bookends of each day. If you take care of yourself, you can give so much more in all that you do. I also find if I take 20 minutes or so to myself to either meditate, exercise, read or just step out into the grass each day for a little self-care I am much more balanced.
Finally, why do you believe in the power of magic?
I believe that all crystals have a little magic in them, and I like having that magic in my life. It's not about what you can see but what you can feel... When I hold crystals and feel their energy, it’s so unique and special - it’s magical. I also believe there is a little bit of magic in everyone.
