Mums-to-be have enough on their minds without wondering which beauty products are safe, effective and best for pampering. Thankfully, Unity Beauty Essentials is the latest brand making pre- and post-pregnancy beauty simple. Dedicated to creating luxe pregnancy skincare products that are natural and without any added nasties, this is the label to know...
What sets it apart?
Unlike other pregnancy beauty brands, Unity Beauty Essentials offers luxury, nourishing skincare specially formulated for new and expectant mums. Doctors, scientists, beauty experts and new mums have all had a hand in helping to create the new range, which is 94% natural and built entirely based on what women want and need throughout pregnancy.
Who’s behind it?
The range was created by beauty veteran Parvathi Nair who, since working for luxury beauty houses including Vichy, SK-II, La Mer and Burberry, spotted a gap in the market for luxurious solutions to stretch marks and other things that crop up during pregnancy. Parvathi was inspired by her birthplace – the Indian state of Kerala – to put natural, tropical ingredients at the heart of the brand.
So what’s in the range?
The hot-off-the-press collection comprises three products, with the standout being the Complete Duo: Stretch Mark Cream + Oil, £45, the first-ever stretch mark cream-oil hybrid, which works to reduce the risk of stretch marks as well as improve skin elasticity and banish any dryness or itchiness. The Daily Body Hydrator, £35 – a lightweight yet potent formula designed to instantly rehydrate thirsty skin – and the Intensive Body Nourisher, £35, a rich, buttery cream ideal for overnight, also get top marks.
And what are the ingredients like?
The entire collection is formulated without mineral oils, parabens, petrolatum, sulphates, phthalates or gluten, so it’s good for you and baby. The signature ingredient in all three products is Indian Gooseberry – considered a godsend for expectant mothers, it is one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C and a powerful antioxidant. Nourishing mango seed butter, coconut oil, avocado oil and sweet almond oil as well as shea butter and rosehip oil all feature in the range, too.
Despite only launching a couple of months ago, glowing reviews suggest these products aren’t to be missed. Customers rave about the “luxurious”, “nourishing” and “pampering” formulas, with many saying they’re already going back to make a second order. One customer even said she plans to use the products “once the whole pregnancy period is over” and others wax lyrical about the natural scents, which are relaxing without being too overwhelming.
