Future potential environmentally friendly sunscreen

 

True organic of Sweden is proud to launch  Make my day cream

Day creams rarely stand out as unique, but we have formulated Make my day with the future potential planet friendly sunscreen Algica.

This is a revolutionary product, and we are first in the world with a day cream containing Algica. Make my day is a soothing face cream rich in antioxidants and super foods like oat kernel oil, rosehip oil, blueberry seed oil, turmeric, hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E. The revolutionary ingredient is Algica, the shell of an organically grown microalgae. Tests are currently being conducted to approve this algae material by the EU as an environmentally friendly UV-filter for use in sunscreen. Algica shells originate from the sea and are thereby completely safe for oceans and sea life. As we are all aware today, we need to protect our fragile oceans from harmful and unnatural chemical substances that endanger life in our waters. https://swedishalgaefactory.com/lab/personal-care/      Make my day leaves your skin with a revitalized complexion, balanced moisture levels while naturally slowing the signs of aging and protecting against all harsh elements.                            100% natural          79% organic            Sustainable packaging from sugarcane

3 day happiness challenge

When it’s gray and gloomy outside it’s sometimes hard not to feel the same on the inside.  Here comes a 3 day happiness challenge: For the next 72 hours take note whenever you experience a moment that brings a smile to your face. It can be small things like seeing a happy dog playing, a beautiful tree with colorful autumn leaves or a yummy dessert 🧁 

Before you fall asleep, summarize the small or big happy things. Who knows, after 3 days it might become a habit? Here it’s about quantity, not quality 😉

Turmeric as a teeth whitener

Turmeric is such a versatile spice, used in Indian cooking, coloring fabric, a very strong anti-inflammatory antioxidant etc. Did you know that it also whitens teeth? Take a separate toothbrush from your normal one (because it will be yellow) Wet the toothbrush and dip it in organic turmeric powder. The brush your front teeth, rinse. Already after the first time brushing with turmeric you can see a difference. Much better than the harsh chemical teeth whiteners in my opinion. You need to clean your sink afterwards 😉 it will be yellow 

Turmeric is also an ingredient in our “Make my day” facial cream coming soon!

New world record in tree planting

A new world record was recently set in tree planting in Addis Abeba in Ethiopia. During one day 350 million trees were planted in 12 hours. The aim is to increase the forest areas and in this way help to prevent the climate change. They are planning to plant a total of 4 billion trees before October. 

Go, go Ethiopia! 🌱🌳🌿 Source @svdjunior

Sustainable innovations

Since there is a vast reduction of plastic bags and single use plastic items, do you ever think about the people in the plastic business? Were (are) they forward thinking and started to source new raw materials? Did they simply close the factory or looked for new customers in other countries? Fortunately, the doors for plastic are closing everywhere in the world.

I’m really looking forward to seeing and hearing about all new sustainable innovations and ideas that are buzzing out there in the world.

We were fortunate to find sugarcane tubes from the start, so we never had to use plastic tubes for our organic skincare.

When I lived in Thailand many years ago, my neighbors were an American/Thai family. The husband, a freelancer working from home, was sourcing plastic straws for Starbucks. This is how he supported his family. I wonder what he is doing now….

A little reminder

As several people who I am close to have discovered malignant skin lesions. Here’s a little reminder to check your skin for suspicious changes and get a screening. Skin cancer is the fastest growing cancer type today and it can spread rapidly. New screening methods are being developed like a “bandaid” that you press on the suspected spot for sometime and then get it analyzed at the pharmacy. Another is being developed by Swedish university @kthuniversity , a device that can analyze the lesion in seconds. 

Always use sunscreen with planet friendly ingredients when spending time in the sunshine. Small studies show that taking vitamin C and E supplements may significantly increase the skin’s ability to stand up to UV rays.

Benefits of deep breathing

Listened to a holistic health specialist yesterday. Had my breathing tested, it turns out that I like most people breathe too shallow. Some of the benefits of deep breathing are 

*natural pain killer 

*improves blood flow 

*increases energy levels 

*improves posture 

*reduces inflammation 

*detoxifies the body 

*stimulates lymphatic system 

*improves digestion 

Apparently only people who regularly meditate and practice mindfulness pass this test.

The specialist recommended trying to sleep with a thin piece of surgical tape across the lips so you only breathe through your nose. She said it’s like doing yoga breathing through the night. Maybe something to try ?

Sourcing organic product ingredients

When creating our new products, for True organic of Sweden, the ingredients are very carefully considered. They have to be effective, clean, not too expensive and always planet friendly. When I discovered that rosewood is endangered, I immediately changed to ho-leaf essential oil in our Undercover agent deodorant. Unfortunately it puts a lot of pressure on the consumer to check ingredients before buying. I’m there myself, googling ingredients before buying something new. But, I think we have to. The profit driven organic certification organizations are no guarantee, they let through a lot of ingredients that are not planet friendly at all.

Trick your mind into stressing less

Many of us have returned to work part or full time after a hopefully restful summer.
Maybe stress has already started knocking on the door. Here is a technique I recently learned about to re-wiring your thought patterns:
When you are feeling stressed, imagine that your mind is like a snow globe that has been shaken. The “snow” is whizzing around like a massive huge snowstorm.
Now stop the storm, imagine the “snow” starting to settle on the bottom and be still.
Once the “snow” has reached the bottom, your head will be clear like the water in the snow globe.
This has worked for me, hope it can help you too.
