How do you use a serum?

How do you use a serum?

You apply serum after cleansing, before your face cream twice a day.

Serums have powerful concentrated ingredients that go deeper into the skin than creams do. Serums have active elements that often work to prevent wrinkles, hydrate skin add  glow and or reduce pigments on skin. Protects your skin from free radicals and future damage. Has the potential to provide visible results.

For an oil blend serum to be able to be called serum, it needs to have only active ingredients like our Face it serum.

It is usually not enough to only use a serum; you need a facial cream on top to create a barrier to protect your skin. Just let the serum sink into your skin for a few minutes before you cover with your face cream. Always apply oily serum on moist skin, because if you apply oil on top of dry skin, it will just sit on top.

Have a lovely weekend

Blueberry seed oil- The little miracle worker

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?

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 😋 😉
