Why 9Tribes

9Tribes, primal, unique, distinctive.

In the early 1900s cosmetics innovators started using the terms oily, dry and combination to categorise skin type. 9Tribes was inspired by the knowledge that skin is more than just oily, dry, combination or sensitive and ageing. Skin has roots and origins, a primal instinct, and an eons-old adaptation to its environment and culture. Daring to be the most tailored skin care brand ever created, 9Tribes draws from skin's tribal instinct, seeking to inspire, enthuse and transform the world of skin care.

UNDERSTANDING SKIN TONES

While no rule is true for all, in the majority of cases, certain skin tones are more likely to be oily, dry, or combination.

The majority of people with fairer skin tones will usually have a drier skin type. The majority of people with olive skin tones will usually have an oilier, combination skin type. The majority of people with dark skin tones will usually have a very oily skin type, particularly in the face but often with quite dry body skin.

Different skin tones also age differently. Some age earlier than others; some show ageing with wrinkling, others through spotting or pigmentation. Some skin tones are more likely to show scarring and blemishing and others more likely to be sensitive.

Fair skin tones originating from Europe usually have the least natural sun protection and more likekly to show early wrinkling and fine lines.

Skin tones originating in Asia usually spot first with age with fine lines and wrinkles appearing later; they're also more likely to have a weaker skin barrier and can be quite sensitive.

Darker skin tones originating from Africa have quite a high natural SPF (between 12 - 15) but are more likely to have ongoing blemishing or acne, scarring and pigmentation. Of all the skins tones, African skin tones will usually age last.

Skin is also inescapably linked to its social culture and skin care practices and perceptions differ across the globe. Certain cultures stay away from the sun, others love to achieve a 'healthy glow', others still use cosmetic products to keep skin bright and luminous.

CREATING THE 9TRIBES RANGE

9Tribes has been uniquely formulated to address each Tribal Group's concerns; creating specific products for those tribes that need extra sun protection, moisture, anti-ageing, age spot or antiblemishing control while replenishing skin barrier elements in skin care tribes with lower levels of ceramides or weaker barrier function.

9Tribes extracts have been chosen on the eons-old adaptation of skin alongside nature. Natural plant extracts, plant oils and sea extracts from the geographical origin of the skin tone have been used in each Tribe's product range.

ABOUT THE 9TRIBES RANGE

9Tribes extends across a broader age group than most skin care brands as a result of incorporating anti-ageing, spot control and blemish and scar control in relevant Tribal Groups from the outset.

9Tribes is formulated with 85 per cent to 90 per cent natural ingredients with the inclusion of sunscreen.

Without inclusion of sunscreen, 9Tribes is at least 90 per cent natural, sodium lauryl sulphate, paraben, and mineral oil free.

9Tribes is presented in natural wood, a package that embodies the qualities, value and the personality of the brand and symbolises the brand's primal routes.

Packaging is currently being redesigned to provide refillable options as a reflection of the company's commitment to sustainability.

We know there's no other brand out there like us; we hope once you Discover your Tribe, you'll agree!
