Model Samantha Harris launches Locako’s first beauty range with native ingredients

Australia’s pioneering keto collagen company Locako has collaborated with model Samantha Harris on the launch of a new beauty range with native Australian ingredients.

The new range features a beauty bar and powders made with Kakadu plum, Davidson plum and finger lime sourced from indigenous communities, as well as an added beauty boost from collagen, hyaluronic acid, bamboo silica and schisandra.

Locako Founder Ally Mellor said Samantha was the perfect ambassador for the new range.

“Sam is beautiful on the inside and out and understands that true beauty comes from within. She embraces a no-fuss approach to her beauty, putting more of an emphasis on what goes inside her body to create a beautiful glow and that’s exactly what we’re about at Locako,” Ms Mellor said.

“Locako is proudly Australian and it has been wonderful to work with someone who is just as passionate as we are about supporting local businesses. In addition to tasting divine, native Australian ingredients pack a powerful punch from Kakadu plum’s high vitamin C content, which supports collagen production, to finger lime, which is high in potassium, antioxidants, folate and vitamin E.”

Samantha, who was a fan of Locako long before becoming the face of the beauty range, said she loves everything the Australian brand stands for.

“Locako uses natural, Australian plant extracts in its beauty collagen range, which taste great, are great for overall health and have been wild harvested in remote communities creating jobs and opportunities for indigenous people such as the women of Wadeye in the Northern Territory,” Ms Harris said.

“I can’t get enough of the collagen beauty range – I add a spoonful of the vanilla and Kakadu plum powder to my morning smoothies and make a refreshing blueberry and finger lime tonic for an afternoon pick-me-up. Collagen and vitamin C are integral to my health and beauty routine and I haven’t found anyone who does it as cleanly or tastily as Locako.”

Products in Locako’s Beauty Collagen range, which is endorsed by Samantha Harris, include:
