Natural ingredients work in synergy for potent results
Natural ingredients work in synergy for more potent results.
How's your skin-care routine looking these days? If you're like many of us, you're probably stocking up on the latest products and trends—but have you considered how your ingredients are working together to give you your best skin ever?
You may have heard about the power of natural skincare ingredients, but what you may not know is that when these ingredients come together in synergy, they can make all the difference in giving you radiant skin. Natural ingredients offer a range of benefits that synthetic options simply cannot compete with, and they are also more eco-friendly. In this article, we'll dive into the power of natural skincare ingredients and how they work together for gorgeous results. True organic of Sweden only use natural ingredients that are working in synergy to make the products more powerful.
Why Natural Skincare Ingredients Are Better for Your Skin and the Planet
Here at True organic of Sweden we believe using natural ingredients to nourish and heal your skin can be more beneficial than opting for synthetic ones. Natural ingredients contain antioxidants, minerals, proteins, and vitamins that can soothe your skin and provide essential nutrition. Plants-based ingredients have also been found to help improve collagen production and reduce the signs of aging. Natural ingredients such as aloe vera, olive oil, and shea butter are some of the most common examples that are used in skincare products as they are known to be effective in calming inflamed skin. All those are in our multi award winning All you need is me balm.
As well as being better for your skin, natural skincare products are better for the planet too. The use of natural ingredients helps to reduce environmental pollution by avoiding unnecessary chemicals not only from our products but also from the production processes. Natural skincare also allows us to return to the basics, focusing on what we already have in nature instead of creating new synthetic alternatives. This allows us to prioritize natural ingredients and harness their power in synergy with each other rather than relying on artificial chemicals which may be potentially harmful.
How Natural Ingredients Work in Synergy for Potent Results
Ever wonder what makes a natural skincare formulation so powerful? The answer: synergy. When natural ingredients are combined correctly, they can create a positive reaction that is more effective than the sum of the parts.
For example, essential oils in combination with other natural extracts can create healing powers that one oil couldn't do alone. Natural oils and extracts have different components that react with each other to garner potent results.
Our formulators at True organic of Sweden use synergetic blends of natural ingredients, they can create a product with better results or faster impact—without relying on synthetic ingredients or chemicals to achieve those effects. Combining potent natural extracts not only helps address skin issues, it also builds the skin's immunity and improves overall health and well-being in the long run.
The Power of Antioxidants: Vitamin C and Vitamin E
It's no secret that Vitamin C is an important antioxidant for healthy skin. It helps to increase the production of collagen and prevent oxidative stress from environmental damage. But when it comes to natural skincare products, the power of Vitamin C is amplified when combined with other antioxidants like Vitamin E.
When these ingredients come together in synergy, they can protect lipid peroxidation, which makes them ideal for a range of skincare products. In fact, studies show that Vitamin C is believed to play an important role in the prevention of lifestyle-related diseases such as cancer.
At True organic of Sweden, we use antioxidants in all our products.
Hydrating and Soothing: Aloe Vera, Castor oil and Shea Butter
These days, you know it's important to take care of your skin, and when it comes to doing so naturally, there are some special ingredients that work together fantastically. Aloe Vera, Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter are three key wonders that have moisture-sealing, barrier-repairing properties and will keep your skin looking beautiful. These ingredients are in our All you need is me balm, the first product of True organic of Sweden.
Aloe Vera is an all-natural ingredient that can be used for sunburn relief and after sun repair. It’s packed with antioxidants like Vitamins A & C that help revitalize skin and make it more supple.
Castor Oil is a natural replacement for the oil our skin produces. We want to help keep our skin hydrated and this oil can do just that—it penetrates deep into the layers of the dermis and gives us an added protection against irritants.
Shea Butter is another natural ingredient which deeply hydrates and moisturizes skin. It also acts as a soothing agent for sensitive or inflamed skin—perfect if you often suffer from dryness or irritation!

Essential Oils for Radiance: Bergamot, Geranium and Rosehip Oil
We can’t talk about natural skincare ingredients without talking about essential oils! Essential oils are incredibly powerful and have been used for centuries as part of skincare regimens. On the top of the list are lavender and frankincense oil, both have some wonderful benefits for your skin. These are all in our Face it serum at True organic of Sweden
Bergamot is acclaimed for its calming and soothing properties, which make it great for treating acne-prone skin. It also helps reduce wrinkles, promote even toned complexion and has anti-inflammatory properties. Plus, Bergamot smells lovely!
Geranium is anti-inflammatory and is great if you have aging skin. It helps reduce puffiness, while providing a firming, nourishing and radiant effect on your skin.
And another one that deserves a mention is rosehip oil—it’s often referred to as “the oil of youth” because it’s packed with antioxidants that help with fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots.
Using natural ingredients like essential oils in facial serums magnifies each ingredient’s power in synergy with one another. Not to mention that these natural ingredients are better for the planet too!
All of these are in our Face it serum at True organic of Sweden.
How to Choose Natural Skincare Products with Ingredients in Synergy
When choosing natural skincare products, it’s important to make sure that the ingredients work together in synergy. At True organic of Sweden selection of ingredients in our skincare products is as paramount, as combining ingredients that complement each other can create a more powerful and effective product.
For instance, Vitamin C and Vitamin E can protect against free radicals and improve collagen production when combined. Other natural ingredients like amino acids, peptides, and plant-derived oils can be helpful in nourishing your skin from the inside out.
When picking out products for your skincare routine, look for ingredients that enhance, balance, and support each other to truly maximize their efficacy. Consider how the combination of natural compounds will work together to help your skin achieve its optimum radiance. After all, the combination of certain active natural ingredients is what makes real magic happen!

What to do about puffy eyes
Most of us probably know that cucumber 🥒 slices are great to place on puffy eyes. But did you know that raw potato 🥔 slices can work wonders for swollen puffy eyes? There are enzymes in potatoes that are astringent and reduce inflammation. It’s best if the potato is cold, cut thin slices and place them on your eyes. Lie down and relax for 20 minutes. Happy Sunday 🤩

True organic of Sweden
True organic of Sweden
Organic and natural skincare products made in Sweden in sustainable packaging. True Organic of Sweden is a multi award winning brand for people who want effective skincare that is kind to the skin and the planet.
When my son was born I had just finished a degree in science of natural health. My son had diaper rash and I had sore breasts from breastfeeding. I searched for any ointment relief, even the organic certified ones had ingredients that I would never use on my son. They could have as little as 5 percent organic ingredients and the rest could be anything. How can this be?
I was living in Switzerland at that time, and when I moved back to Sweden, my home country a few years later, I started looking around for how to actually produce skin care. I found a wonderful organic and natural skin care guru. Together we created the first product: All you need is me balm. Two weeks after launch, All you need is me balm won its first award of many. It’s 100% natural and 95% organic in a compostable tube made of sugarcane. I was very happy and content with my accomplishment of such a unique, pure and effective balm but then people started to ask me “What is your next product “? Next product ?! I asked. After this I followed by producing my own wish list of my dream skincare products. True organic of Sweden skincare brand was born. True organic of Sweden skincare products are with as few ingredients as possible, as high in organic content as possible and ingredients that you recognize, at the same time very effective products that bring results. We have 7 products today and developing more.Our customers are loyal, we have a 60% return rate. http://trueorganicofsweden.com
Now we sell all over the world, to distributors, retailers and directly to consumers.
Starting as a one person company has been a challenge. Both financially and time wise. I have never wanted to employ lots of people but instead used freelancers and distributors responsible for their areas. The distributors have bought in bulk, have exclusive rights to their country but in return also been responsible for getting the products into retailers and conduct marketing, sales and PR. Some distributors have been better than others but as a small unknown brand it’s even difficult to get a distributor to look at your products. So if the distributors ignore their obligations there’s not much you can do other than remove the brand from them but then you might not fin anyone else willing to take your brand in that market.
Another challenge has been in the sourcing of ingredients and creating products that are efficient, as high in organic ingredients as possible, 100% natural using only planet friendly ingredients in sustainable packaging. Not all ingredients can be found grown organically. Most products have water and water can never be organic. This brings the organic level down. Organic produce is grown without synthetic fertilizers, genetic engineering, irradiation or pesticides. The plants need to grow at a certain distance from any farm that is not organic so the bees cannot fly in between. Our mission statement is to create top quality skincare products with the highest levels of organic ingredients. We are committed to protect the planet, its resources and all those who populate it.
The skincare business is big and competition is fierce but the more of us organic and natural skincare producer there are, the better it is for our environment.If natural, organic products in sustainable packaging become the norm, the better it is for all of us, our children and the planet.
Looking towards future opportunities there is a very positive awareness that there is no planet B and everyone needs to do their bit.
With so many natural disasters around the world it’s difficult for even the most climate change deniers to ignore facts. People are looking for ways to do their bit to help our planet. More are turning to organic and natural products. We are becoming aware of sustainable packaging and getting upset when an item is packaged in far more plastic than needed. Luckily we see that innovation is buzzing and sustainable solutions are presented in every field.
With the pandemic we had to rethink like everyone else and concentrate our efforts more to the online business instead of retail stores. Our distributors who had mainly retail stores were suffering while the ones with online businesses were thriving. http://trueorganicofsweden.com
A business is a living thing and one needs to nurture it and be flexible because change is constant. Wether it’s a pandemic, war or inflation. Being a small business it may be easier to make a quick change. We for example had Rosewood essential oil in our deodorant Undercover agent. I found out that rosewood is endangered so we could quickly change to ho leaf essential oil instead with a similar scent.
Talking about being flexible and change, I have decided to take on a partner in the business. It’s one of our distributors who has more economical muscle and is an established skincare distributor. Together we will be able to create new products faster and more cost effective. If you take on a partner it’s important that you have the same vision and values. For me it’s not an unknown partner, I know and have worked with this company for several years.
The advice I can give anyone wanting to start a business is just do. You can have market research, plans and preparations for years but I say just start. Take a first step and then the next one. I have to say, everything takes much longer than you think and more expensive than you thought.
If you go ahead, do something you are passionate and interested in, feel the excitement and have fun! That’s what I always have said, I will do it as long as it’s fun
