Miranda Kerr launches a new skin-care line, Kora Organics!

Supermodel Miranda Kerr has launched her own line of skincare products! The Victoria’s Secret Angel said “I was looking for an organic product that really worked for me, but I couldn’t find one.” The 28-year-old model grew up rolling around her grandfather’s vegetable garden in rural Australia, and studied nutrition before taking up modeling full-time.

Kerr has gone back to her roots, with a new skin-care line, Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr, inspired by her family’s own health and beauty remedies. A play on the word core, the concept for Kora ties into Kerr’s holistic approach to well-being—nourishing the body “from the inside and outside,” as she puts it. Along with natural ingredients like rose-hip oil, olive oil, and pomegranate, the secret to her line is Noni juice, an elixir said to aid cell renewal, which is made from a fruit indigenous to Tahiti, that Kerr has been drinking daily since she was a teenager. “I used to put it on my skin if I had a pimple or sunburn. It’s like food for the skin,” she says. Indeed, it is featured throughout the range of the line, in products from her Blemish Gel and Hydrating Day and Night Cream, to a gentle, paraben-free Essential Body Wash, which she uses to bathe her eleven-month-old son, Flynn.

Kora has been a huge hit since debuting in Australia in 2009, and stateside, fans like Gwyneth Paltrow will soon be able to shop her Ecocert–certified products locally as well as online. Manhattan dermatologist Dr. David Colbert will stock her range in his sleek Flatiron office, and Kerr is in talks with several department stores as well.

“I was really the guinea pig for Kora; I tested everything,” says Kerr, who had each formula flown to her from the organic laboratory in Melbourne where it was developed. The Rejuvenating Foot Balm proved exceptionally fun to try out. “Being on my heels all the time, I wanted to create a cream to put on after a long day,” she says. “And it doesn’t hurt that my husband, Orlando, is very good at massaging it into my feet.”

Two to Tango with LUSH.

The Pantone Color Institute just named “Tangerine Tango,” a radiant red-orange hue, as the top color for 2012. In fashion, this amped up color is sure to lift spirits and give an energy boost, but if wearing the color is too much for you, give one of LUSH’s tempting tangerine-colored concoctions a try. Karma soap and perfume, which have been cult favorites long before this Pantone announcement, are bold beautifiers, with even spicier scents!

Up your Karma quotient as we head into 2012 with Karma soap, sure to turn a boring shower into a truly groovy experience. The spicy orange, lemongrass, pine and patchouli essential oils will balance a tired mood and transport you back to the days of flower power! The scent lingers long after you’ve washed and is sure to reward you with love and kindness, and if not, at least a lovely smell. One whiff and you’ll be hooked – for this life and the next (sold by weight $7.95 for 3.5 oz).

Karma perfume is an ageless classic. This signature LUSH scent, like its tangerine color, will evoke a sense of euphoria, and peaceful well-being. Karma contains Patchouli, which will make you more objective, orange oil to help revive, lemongrass to lifts spirits and elemi to make you feel joyful when you’ve fallen onto some bad karma. Some fall for it without realizing what’s happening, while others love it from the first sniff (available in 3 sizes: $42.95 1 oz/$14.95 .3 oz/$10.95 solid).

Other Karma favorites include the Karma bubble bar, Karma Kream, Karma Komba solid shampoo, and Karma bath melt. Visit www.lushusa.com to learn more.
