What Are Antioxidants?

Antioxidants fight the good fight for our cells against oxidative damage spurred on by free radical damage.

Think of antioxidants as the ‘good guys’—and free radicals as the ‘baddies’. For true wellness, we need to balance out free radical exposure by upping our antioxidant intake.

It’s important to note that free radicals are a pesky part of life. They’re found in many unavoidable aspects of our day: UV rays and everyday pollution. They’re also plentiful when indulging in processed foods, sugars, tobacco smoke and alcohol.

The chain reaction of oxidiative stress happens innately. Out of our control. 

Yet our ability to nourish ourselves is always within reach.

Enter the vitality of potent antioxidants to balance out + slow down this natural process of skin aging.

Why Use Antioxidant Skincare Products?

Fuelling your body, both internally and with topical antioxidants, can help to counter, or slow down the aging process. This is major when it comes to our skin.

More specifically, antioxidants offer protection against UVA and UVB solar rays. And help to minimize the sun’s plight to accelerate our rate of aging. 

Not only that, daily antioxidant application helps stimulate collagen production + improve hydration. Boost skin health to naturally remedy sun damage. Reduce inflammation, while softening the skin to thrive with youthful looks. 

As certified organic skincare enthusiasts, we agree that an antioxidant skin care product is:

Healthier For You

Organic ingredients are not exposed to pesticides in the harvesting process. This means we go beyond clean to deliver formulas without exposure to toxins or potential carcinogens. 

And you can feel safe knowing that they penetrate deep into the skin—and bloodstream.

More Effective

Organic ingredients produce up to 60% more antioxidants than non-organic ingredients.*

This means you’re getting skin-loving gentler formulas with even more powerful results.

Better For The Planet

Organic farming involves less pollution, less soil erosion, and less energy than non-organic harvesting practices. Learn more from our partners at the Organic Farming Research Foundation here

In a nutshell: We are #1 for skin health, more effective than non-organic skincare, and good for the Earth.

Let that sink in.

Our Favorite Antioxidants

Turmeric | Glow + Tone

As a Certified Health Coach, Miranda believes in bringing the benefits of superfoods she’s researched in nutrition into her products to benefit the skin. Turmeric is one of her favorites for its anti-inflammatory + antioxidant properties when consumed and applied topically on the skin.

Turmeric is a known antioxidant to protect against environmental stressors that cause oxidative damage. All helping to delay the signs of aging. It’s also well known for its ability to brighten and even skin tone while reducing the appearance of pigmentation.

We also love it to improve skin texture + providing a natural, warm glow. Which is why it features in so often in our range.

Noni Fruit | Nourish + Replenish

Growing up on an organic farm, Miranda’s grandmother introduced her to the benefits of Noni Fruit at age 13, and she has been both drinking it and using it on her skin every day since. As she believes it’s the key to her health and vitality as a model, entrepreneur, and mother, it is a featured ingredient in every single KORA Organics product.

Native to the South Pacific Islands, noni is rich in powerful antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that nourish, soften, and improve the overall appearance of your complexion, support your natural radiance, and help strengthen the skin’s barrier while minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

That’s a lot from one little fruit renowned for its anti-aging and anti-inflammatory skin benefits. 

Kakadu Plum | Brighten + Protect

We revere the skin-loving qualities of this antioxidant. Most know topical Vitamin C to be the antidote to collagen loss. That is certainly why we adore it + reach for it daily in a skincare routine.

Yet it’s also a powerful force to neutralize free radicals. The environmental factors that spur oxidative stress—and your best friend when it comes to aging protection. 

Enter Kakadu Plum, the richest source of Vitamin C—Ascorbic Acid—to boost collagen production and improve skin elasticity. Not forgetting the power it has to remedy dark spots and uneven skin tone at the same time. 

We cannot forget its gift of glow: it’s one of our favorite topically applied antioxidants.

Bakuchiol | Firm + Smooth

The famed Bakuchiol is the #1 natural ingredient of the clean anti aging movement; often referred to as the most abundant antioxidant for skin aging.

It’s noted for its purity in playing the treasured anti aging role that it does for our skin—alleviating the irritation, sun-sensitivity and health contraindications of Vitamin A-laden retinol products.

We call on the proven power of certified organic Bakuchiol in our range of natural alternatives to aid in visually levelling out fine line and wrinkles while packing a punch of antioxidant protection for our skin!

Acai Stem Cells | Power Up Ferulic Acid

Acai Stem Cells contain Ferulic Acid which, unlike retinol, is a relatively unknown skincare term. However, it’s your friend for aging protection; potent with antioxidant benefits for skin.

When Ferulic Acid is further infused with Vitamins C & E—like when Acai and Rosehip meet in our blends—they become an even more powerful and protective force against environmentally-created free radical damage which is the precursor to premature aging. 

Dr. Simone Laubscher knows Acai to be “high in antioxidants to help protect cells from damage, aging and swelling.” Nutritionally, she adds that Acai Berries “have more antioxidant content than cranberry, raspberry, blackberry and strawberry.” Which is why she says they’re a “powerhouse for the immune system!

We harvest plant-powered stem cells from Acai Berries—and call on their potent antioxidant power in our retinol alternative moisturizer—and it’s sister—our retinol alternative serum.

Our Lifestyle Glowing Skin Tips

To match a high-vibing + wellness-filled skin care routine, here are our glow tips for healthy + organic living:

Protect Your Skin Cells

In addition to protecting your skin from dangers of UV radiation. You also need to protect your skin from free radicals. These pesky + unseen factors don’t allay just being out of the sun. They’re part of life.

The good news: we can firstly wear sunscreen and sun-protective clothing to keep the noticeable hazards away from our skin. We can also indulge in antioxidant-rich skincare and a healthy diet to fight the good fight for healthy cells, against excess free radicals

Nourish Your Body

With unending knowledge of what we should eat + at what time. We like to keep it simple.

Eat the colours of the rainbow. Try to reach 30 different types of vegetables each week for a thriving microbiome. Swap out sugar with bitter foods; reach for spices rather than packaged foods—and eat organic.

To help your body combat free radicals, load up on antioxidants, minerals, nutrients, vitamins + watch your skin glow with wellness.


Plenty of purified water per day is key—for internal health and for topped-up bouncy skin.

You can pimp your water for more hydration. We love this recipe from Dr. Simone Laubscher to get more-than-hydration from our daily water intake. 

+ Add a face oil to your routine, to lock hydration into your skin!

Beauty Sleep

Rest is your best friend for reducing inflammation in your body—and your skin!

The body goes into skin repair and rejuvenation mode overnight. We also make most of our collagen then too.

Maximise this beauty opportunity before you head off for slumber. Reduce screen time after sunset; read to fall into deeper zen-filled rest. Ensure the room is dark and the temperature is slightly cool.

Layer up with a PM skincare ritual: serums, moisturizer, face oil and finish with our replenishing Sleeping Mask. Dry skin be gone; wake with dewy skin goodness.

Sweat It Out

Toxins find their way in our bodies through a number of ways; even if you eat perfectly certified organic food. Air pollution is a hard one to avoid.

We love sweating to release what we don’t want in our bodies. This also extends to stress!

A daily fast walk can help to balance the good hormones with the bad. AKA, the stress hormone, cortisol. Dance does this too.

Stay fit to stay well—and to glow!

Stay Calm

We aptly named our holiday campaign this year: Stay Calm + Holiday On.

Our nervous systems have taken a hit—collectively—for a few years now. Finding a practice to curate calm, no matter is going on around you, is the way of our times.

Miranda is the self-care queen of our team inspiring us to reach for daily zen-led activities.

If meditation, yoga, or breathwork isn’t your thing. Get into nature and lay your bare feet on the ground. It’s an instant and achievable ritual to get in touch with your inner self. And find your balance.

Why Certified Organic?

Every one of our products is made with ingredients sourced from organic harvesting practices. Which means less waste for our planet, fewer toxins on your skin, and as we often say: Up to 60% more antioxidants than non-organic formulas—for even better results. 

The beauty industry is not regulated worldwide, which can lead to brands marketing their products as clean, natural, and organic without oversight. That’s why we’ve chosen to certify our products through Ecocert/ COSMOS, the most heavily regulated ingredient system in the world.

Every part of the process—from the ingredients to the manufacturing facilities to the packaging materials—must be approved, guaranteeing no synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or toxic chemicals are used in growing or harvesting our botanicals.

As an EU-based certifying body, this review is in addition to the over 1,328 ingredients banned within the EU. 

If you have sensitive skin, and a sensitive system, certified organic is a must.
