All you need is me balm for skiing

Going skiing this winter? Don’t forget your tube of All you need is me. For one, it protects your face from icy winds, but did I tell you the story from when I last went skiing? After 3 days of skiing, I could barely walk as my leg muscles were so sore. I applied All you need is me balm on my legs in the evening, and in the morning I was good to go again. How can it be, you ask. All ingredients are anti - inflammatory. Castor oil, beeswax, olive oil, Shea butter, vitamin E and blueberry seed oil. On top of this, natural products work in synergy with each other and the beeswax remains biologically “alive” even after it is processed.

Jojoba oil in Make my day face cream

When we at True organic of Sweden create new products, every single ingredient is carefully selected. Equally important is what we don’t want in the product. We are much stricter than the profit driven organic certification bodies. In our new Make my day face cream we have jojoba(ho-ho ba) oil. The thought behind it is, that our skin is made up of natural wax esters (called sebum). The sebum locks in moisture to keep skin hydrated and healthy. The sebum production begins to decrease as we age,  which means, fine lines, dry skin and sagging take place . The amazing thing with the jojoba plant is that it  naturally produces wax esters identical to our very own sebum. This means jojoba oil mimics our own skin’s natural oils and can penetrate at deeper levels. Because it is able to penetrate deep into the skin, it may help to ferry down the other active ingredients in Make my day where they can do some great work.

Jojoba oil is a real multitasker and it’s well researched. It has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, hypoallergenic and antibacterial properties. Jojoba oil is loaded with antioxidants, Vitamin B, minerals like chromium, copper and zinc. It also contains both omega 6 and omega 9.

It balances out your complexion, adding more sebum where it’s needed and less where you don’t.

Jojoba oil is for people with acne prone skin, people who want to slow down the aging process, people with sensitive skin, people with dry skin or patches, people with oily skin.

Jojoba oil is simply a star ingredient, wouldn’t you agree?

Organic balm for everything

I often get the question : Why did you start your business.
I developed the idea of All you need is me when my son was born.
He had diaper rash and I had sore nipples from breast feeding.
Having just completed a degree in science of natural health, I was not happy to put any of the existing balms on my son. Even the certified organic ones that had maybe 5% organic ingredients and the rest could be anything.
When I returned to Sweden after many years, I started looking into how to develop a cream. The result was All you need is me. The name came about as it’s really good for everything :)
From diaper rash, cuts, scrapes, minor burns, sore muscles, dry skin, as an overnight face mask, protecting skin from cold weather and wind and so much more. I still today get people telling me new uses.
All you need is me is 95% organic, 100% natural and it comes in a sustainable tube made of sugarcane.
All you need is me ingredients are
Castor oil, beeswax, olive oil, Shea butter, vitamin E, blueberry seed oil and rosemary leaf extract.
Nothing else, not even water. There’s no need for preservatives as there’s vitamin E, blueberry seed oil but no water. I have actually tasted all the ingredients myself . The olive oil is delicious 😋 😉

Toxic free cosmetics and personal care products products

Planet friendly ingredients are also human skin and body friendly. We have to become 🕵️‍♀️ detectives when it comes to skincare. Many everyday cosmetics and personal care products have 1. Known carcinogenic and 2. Probable carcinogenic ingredients. No warning labels.
Oh, it’s such small amounts one might think, but add all the other products we use every day, year after year.
Just look at the J&J baby powder. Why would you even risk it, and on your baby no less?
It’s scary to me.

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….
