Pai Avocado and Jojoba Moisturizer

 I think I have quite openly declared my love for the UK certified organic brand Pai here, but I wanted to write another post about this lovely moisturizer I have recently started using. I was immediately drawn by its ingredients. What could be better for normal skin than nourishing avocado, and the moisturizing jojoba oil? Avocado oil contains various amino acids needed to keep skin membranes healthy and lock moisture in. Jojoba oil is great for moisturizing the skin and is also said to have great acne-healing properties. 
  The cream comes in a lovely glass bottle and if of beige colour. It absorbs very fast, does not leave any oily or sticky residue and smells divine. When switching to a clean moisturizer I was worried that the cream will be too rich and over-powering for my skin. This was not the case with Pai at all (I have also used and loved their Sensitive skin Rosehip moisturizer). They are incredibly light but very nourishing at the same time, making you feel that your skin is getting everything it needs without being overpowered.
The ingredients list is also super clean, check for yourself:

purified water, geranium water*, avocado oil*, jojoba oil*, coconut and corn derived emulsifier, thistle oil*, shea butter*, natural vitamin e, vegetable glycerine, corn extract, manuka oil*, rosemary antioxidant*, basil extract, lavender oil*, lactic acid, may chang oil*, rosemary oil*

  All Pai products are certified by the UK Soil Association, which is a very strict organization: a product must contain at least 95% organic ingredients to be fully certified organic. A product can still be certified if it contains at least 70% organic ingredients, but the exact percentage has to be stated on the product packaging. It is very important to look for certification of brands, where many call themselves ‘organic’ just because their product contains a couple of organic ingredients. Pai is completely trustworthy in this sense: they have all their products certified. However, apart from certification they also contain some of the most beneficial ingredients for your skin, and are perfect for people with sensitive or allergy-prone skin. I now cannot wait to try their BioAffinity Toners, which seem amazing. I will update you all on those! Has anyone else tried Pai, I would love to hear your thoughts or questions!


  1. Hello,
    i'm so glad to read your sharing of this product,. actually i'm also interesting in this moisturizer for dry skin,..
    btw, do you think it will be rich enough around winter season??

    ** I'm so expecting of your next article of any organic or green skincare ** ...

  2. Hello! Thanks a lot for your kind comments!
    Well I got the Pai moisturizer for dry/mature skin for my mum, and she has a tendency to have dry skin and generally likes rich creams, and she loves it! I think she used like two bottles of it already. So I definitely think it will be nourishing & moisturizing enough for the winter. I hope this helps!
    Definitely more posts to come soon! :)
