Reasons to choose organic skincare products

Some of the reasons you should choose organic skincare products. Not only are organic skincare products preferable for the environment as organic farming procedures are better, they are also beneficial to wildlife as well. These practices produce less dangerous waste from fertilizers and pesticides. Up to 100% of organic skincare products contain active ingredients. In synthetic skincare products, active ingredients usually only make up 5-10% of its contents. To further prove this point, natural ingredients work in synergy with each other and become more powerful together.

Holistic approach to beauty and wellness


Those who know me, know that I’m a big believer in a holistic approach to overall beauty and wellness. What we eat, how we move, what we apply to our skin and what we think is all connected. We have all probably heard about the fantastic benefits of meditation. I’ve tried doing it on my own, apps and websites with guided meditations. I stick with it for a few days but then... Now I’ve found something that works for me that I wanted to share. It still took discipline the first week, but now it’s a habit. YouTube 👍
I like the @thehonestguys for meditation and Suzanne Grace for breathing exercises and clearing your chakras. I have to say, I find myself with a more positive mind. Do you have a favorite meditation method you would like to share?

Why you should think about adding anti pollution to your skincare routine

Why you should think about adding anti pollution to your skincare routine. Air pollutants don’t just smell bad, they cause free radical damage to your skin. That means it contributes to breaking down collagen, causing sagging, fine lines and wrinkles. While pollutants are a year around problem, the skin is extra sensitive and susceptible when exposed to cold winds and moisture stripping central heating. You can protect your skin from premature aging by using anti pollution skincare. In our Make my day cream we have the ingredient Algica which has proven anti pollution properties. Last chance this weekend for our January sales. trueorganicofsweden.com

What happens to your skin when you are sleeping 😴

What happens to your skin when you are sleeping? There is a reason it’s called beauty sleep. When you sleep it gives your skin a chance to restore, repair and recover. There is actually a fair amount of research and science done about the concept of beauty sleep. This is when some of the most significant internal and epidermal revival takes place. When you sleep your body produces collagen which keeps your skin healthy, promotes cell reproduction and minimizes fine lines. Personally I use a silk pillowcase to avoid sleeping marks in my face and it’s also better for your hair. Even if the Algica in our Make my day cream has tested to be UV resistant it’s beneficial to use as a night cream for other reasons. It’s rich in antioxidants and a powerhouse of nutrients. Did you know that your skin absorbs a higher level of nutrients while you sleep ? So go ahead, close your eyes and take that nap 😴 😴 😴

The algae-based silica material with unique and powerful properties developed by nature.

  • Cleanses the skin by absorption of impurities, sweat and bacteria
  • Efficient carrier material that enables efficient uptake of vitamins and nutrients by the skin
  • Improved moisture retention by its ability to bind water, similar to hyaluronic acid
  • A future natural, non-toxic and environmentally friendly UV filter
  • COSMOS Certified Organic
  • Transparent on the skin
  • Completely odor-free
  • The dry form is long-lasting and does not require preservatives
  • Rheology modifying properties
  • The material also shows promise for anti-pollution (currently testing)
  • It is available as a dry powder and as a water-based cream. The dry material is preferable for oil-based formulations and serums, while the cream is easy to formulate into lotions and face masks

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!
