Blueberry seed oil- The little miracle worker

Blueberry seed oil- Why do we put it in our products ? You know those tiny, tiny seeds in blueberries? The oil that is pressed from those is like a nourishing miracle worker for your skin. The oil is high in essential fatty acids omega 3, 6 and linolenic acids. These work as a protective barrier for skin, improving overall tone and firmness. Blueberry seed oil also includes Vitamin E which helps to minimize fine lines and prevents loss of elasticity. The blueberry is one of nature’s most potent antioxidant berry which makes it perfect for damaged skin and rejuvenation. It has excellent cell and tissue regeneration properties. It helps slowing down the aging process naturally. You will find blueberry seed oil in our Make my day cream and our multi award winning All you need is me balm 👍

Antipollution means anti-aging

Antipollution = anti-aging

You may have heard the term antipollution being used more frequently about skincare and makeup over the past few years. But what does it actually mean? If you are living or working in a city you can’t help but notice the dust in the street coloring everything grey. You may not notice that the air smells bad if you breathe the polluted air every day. Then when you visit the countryside, the air smells so good you know that you have been in a polluted environment. What is this pollution doing to our skin? There is a great deal of interest in the subject and a lot of emerging scientific research is being done. Toxic air has been linked to premature aging, accelerating wrinkles and age spots. The small particles enter through our pores. If you are not in the city, it doesn’t help being nearby as the particles are spread by the wind. That’s why we see more and more antipollution products on the market. Traffic pollution is emerging as the single most toxic substance for our skin. We were delighted to hear that Algica, an algae that is one of the active ingredients in our Make my day cream has been cleared as an antipollution substance after clinical studies.

Algica, together with Vitamin E, also an antipollution protector in Make my day cream makes it an effective pollution shield.

Oat oil in your body lotion

Oats are amazing! Not just for a healthy breakfast but also in your skincare. Oat oil is rich in vitamins A, E and B as well as loads of calcium, zinc, iron and manganese. A must have ingredient when we created our Body buddy lotion. Oat oil is antimicrobial, anti itch, anti inflammatory and soothing for uncomfortable dry skin conditions. Oat oil has fantastic antioxidant benefits which makes it a great anti-aging ingredient. It’s deeply moisturizing, highly absorbable and acts as a protective barrier. It’s a wonder not all body lotions have oat oil as an ingredient.

Algae in skincare

Treasures under the surface.
Algae is really hot right now, and with good reason.
It’s the food of the future, in supplements, skincare and even an alternative to fossil fuels. Packed with high levels of calcium, iron, potassium, Vitamin A, C, and K, selenium and magnesium. It’s the future superfood that could feed the entire world. It’s already in dairy and nondairy products, food colorings and spices. We have included it in our Sea me mask, a true Cinderella mask that detoxifies and leaves you with clear, radiant skin. We also have Algica in our Make my day cream. Algica is an algae which is currently being registered in EU as the first future totally natural sunscreen. Algica comes from the sea, so it will not harm sea life. Algae can also be found in numerous supplements. Working wonders with enormous benefits for the whole body. I’m especially grateful for the excellent dental health a specific algae supplement brings. The versatile algae is entering an extremely exciting phase in its history and I believe we will see it in all sorts of products and industry.
I’m telling you… algae is the future.

Close Chinese wetmarkets

Spring has sprung in Sweden. What puts a damper on things is that the ban has been lifted on the horrific , disease ridden animal markets in China. Animals cramped in small metal baskets treated with extreme cruelty. If they don’t care about animals, then look at how the world is today and the tragedy the pandemic has caused. I don’t get how these markets are allowed to open again, do you?

Sunscreen of the future

Our Make my day face cream is featured in the Swedish magazine Damernas Värld ! @damernasvarld
Text by the lovely Anja Skeppe Grahn @anjaskeppegrahn
”Sunscreen of the future
We love sunscreen, but many unfortunately have a detrimental effect on the environment.
That’s why we keep our fingers crossed that Algica will soon be approved as a UV-filter by EU
Algica is made of algae shells and is cultivated by the company Swedish Algae Factory @swedishalgaefactory - totally organic, natural and environmentally friendly.
Besides potential UV protection, Algica also moisturises and acts as an anti-pollution barrier.
Make my day by True organic of Sweden is the first face cream with this ingredient.”

As eco nerds, this is so interesting and we are so excited to be at the forefront in this area
Planet friendly ingredients all the way!

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?
