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.

Anti pollution organic skincare

We can now claim that our Make my day cream protects skin from air pollution damage. A recently conducted study showed that Algica, which is one of the ingredients in Make my day, prevents harmful air pollution from reaching the skin. Exposure of the skin to air pollutants has been associated with skin aging, inflammation, sagging, uneven and dull skin tone. Air pollution may even be as damaging as sun exposure on unprotected skin.
We are very excited about this news! Algica is a real hero ingredient 😀💫✨For more information about Algica check out swedishalgaefactory.com

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.

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!

Squalane in our Make my day cream and Body buddy lotion

What is squalane?
It’s an oil that is increasingly common in skincare.
We have squalane in our face cream Make my day and in our body lotion Body buddy.
The reason is that it is a phenomenal multitasking moisturizing oil
that leaves skin visibly plump, hydrated and minimizes signs of redness and irritation.
Squalane reduces the look of fine line and wrinkles, locks in moisture, improves skin
elasticity, helps protect skin and assists with oil control while it doesn’t block pores.
The squalane we use is naturally derived from olives.
Watch out though, there is also squalene with an e.
This is either unethically derived from shark liver or a synthetic material.
Squalane -yes! Squalene -no!
