Why Miranda started KORA Organics
For years I tried just about every skincare product (including organic and certified organic) available throughout the world. There were some good products but unfortunately, nothing contained all of the ingredients I personally wanted in a skincare range, almost all contained a lot of the common chemicals found in skincare that I didn't want to put on and eventually in my skin (as everything we put on our skin - soaks in) and the products didn't leave my skin looking and feeling how I wanted it and needed it for my profession to look and feel: healthy and flawless.
So in 2006 I decided that I would work with some of the best organic chemists in the world to see if we could put something together that contained all of the ingredients I personally wanted and a range that actually delivered the results I had been wanting from a skincare line. As I am a perfectionist, after about three years of trialling so many samples we came up with something I was personally thrilled with, and I began sharing the products with family and friends and the results people were getting and the feedback I was receiving was incredible – that is how it all began. I didn't know I could create a skincare line that could make such a difference to people's skin, but I did know that if you give your body (skin included) the healthy, certified organic ingredients it needs, your skin will be supported enough to work its own magic and that's exactly what KORA Organics does – it gives your skin the ability to work its own magic.
KORA Organics has basically grown from nothing but a choice I made as to what I wanted personally for my own skin. Today it has now grown to become a platform for everything organic: an education point where I get to share the benefits of what I am passionate about and that is all things natural, healthy and organic.
People who come to the KORA Organics website and especially the KORA Organics Blog have a choice. They can come, take from the website and the blog whatever they feel serves them and leave whatever doesn't and in the process hopefully be educated as to the benefits of using and consuming all things organic – because there are thousands of benefits.
This is my passion and it is something I never tire of. My industry dictates that I have flawless skin – the only way I can achieve that is through a constant personal commitment to my health and ultimately my skin. You have my personal commitment to always provide you with the highest quality skincare available and I look forward to sharing the benefits with you.
Enjoy and please let us know your thoughts, Love Miranda xxx
Miranda Kerr was born in the small Australian country town of Gunnedah.
Whether it was climbing trees, riding horses or swimming in the river, Miranda spent much of her childhood outdoors and carefree.
Miranda's introduction to modelling came unexpectedly at the age of 13 after a friend entered her in the Dolly magazine modelling competition, which she won.
After completing her studies she was able to focus on modelling full time and it wasn't long before her bags were packed and she embarked on the international modelling scene. Today Miranda is one of the world's most successful models, an international business owner, author and a very proud mother.
Her decade long career as a model has consisted of a mix of high profile runway shows, fashion and beauty shoots and television and print advertising for exclusive brands such as Prada, Jil Sander and Balenciaga. Miranda was the first Australian to be given the coveted title of a "Victoria's Secret Angel" and has graced the covers of international magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, GQ, Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone.
Miranda's passion for charity has seen her donate her time and lend her image to causes such as Kids Helpine, The Koala Foundation and Earth Hour. Miranda is an advocate for all things natural, healthy and organic. She believes that every individual has a role to play in protecting the planet for future generations and adopts sustainability practices in her everyday life.
In 2009 Miranda launched KORA Organics: a range of skincare, 100% Australian made with each product offering a unique blend of essential oils, natural and certified organic ingredients.
KORA Organics is Miranda's own company and her dream come true. In conjunction with some of Australia's most renowned organic chemists and aromatherapists, Miranda created KORA Organics.
All of KORA Organics products are fully Certified Organic through Ecocert. KORA Organics By Miranda Kerr is not just a skincare – it is a lifestyle choice and is fast becoming a community dedicated to the promotion of all things natural, certified organic, sustainable, spiritual and healthy. The range inspires people globally to nurture their bodies, embrace their unique beauty and discover the many benefits of using certified organic skincare.
In September 2010, Miranda released her debut book: Treasure Yourself with an aim to encourage young women to embrace their individuality and listen to their hearts. Treasure Yourself has been consistently on the best sellers list of books in Australia and is now being translated into 9 different languages. In September 2011,Treasure Yourself was selected as one of the top 50 books in Australia under the Australian Governments "Get Reading Initiative" program. This was a huge honour for a first time author.
When asked what her greatest achievement is to date Miranda answers with true certainty "Becoming a mother."
