Solution to dry itchy skin

Hydration station
     When we develop new products, the ingredients are of utmost importance of course and thoroughly researched and tested. When making a body lotion there were several criteria to consider. It had to keep skin moisturized all day, penetrate skin quickly, sustainable, natural and organic ingredients and a have a lovely scent. This is why we chose oat kernel oil as one of the main ingredients. Oats have incredible antioxidant benefits, which make them pretty amazing as a moisturizer. Oat oil can provide massive relief for anyone suffering from itchy skin. Although it’s an oil, it is highly absorbable by the skin, meaning no greasy residue and all the great benefits sinking straight into the skin and also penetrating deeply.
We included it in our Body buddy lotion because of its ability to nourish and soothe maturing, sensitive and damaged skin, and for its support of the elasticity of skin. This means that when you apply it in the morning, your skin is still soft and supple in the evening. With the uplifting citrus scent it puts a zing! to my morning and makes it easier to face the day

Dry skin? Get beautiful skin from within

Dry skin? Get beautiful skin from within. As the weather is getting colder, many of us are experiencing dryer skin. Taking omega 3 oil internally as a supplement may be as good as or better than applying conventional moisturisers.

The long list of Omega 3 skin benefits make it a real skin hero, it helps skin maintain a smooth, elastic texture.It contains essential fatty acids the body can’t make for itself. These are incorporated into cell membranes in the the top layer of skin, forming a protective web around them, helping to stop moisture being lost, and giving skin a healthy appearance. But Omega 3 oils also work deeper in the dermis to control inflammation. Most people see noted improvement in skin health by supplementing with the equivalent of just one to two tablespoon of Omega-3 each day. Oily fish is one of the best sources of omega-3 essential fats, which act as a natural moisturiser and illuminator for your skin from within. If you have a lack of omega-3 in your diet it can lead to premature wrinkles and dry skin. 

When choosing a fish oil, make sure you’re paying attention to the milligrams of EPA and DHA – the actual omega-3 content which is what replenishes dry skin. For a plant-based option, the omegas are listed as ALA, and can be found from oils such as black currant seeds or sunflower seeds. 

 

Pictured is our delicious super hydrating Body buddy lotion with oat kernel oil. A perfect complement to omegas. When you apply Body buddy lotion in the morning, your skin is still soft in the evening.

Synthetic fragrances

Due to recent new EU legislation we have to mark our products that contain natural essential oils with “parfume”
Before this I have avoided all products with ”parfume” or ”fragrance” as it has meant that there are synthetic perfumes in it. And why would I want to avoid synthetic perfumes?
More than 95 percent of the chemicals in synthetic fragrances are derived from petrochemicals. These chemicals include: benzene derivatives, aldehydes, phthalates, and a slew of other known toxins, some of which are cited on the EPA’s hazardous waste list. Synthetic aromas are known to have many side effects on health.
Manufacturers can legally hide hundreds of synthetic chemicals in the one word.
Synthetic perfumes are really hard to avoid, they are everywhere. In your soap, cleaning products, wipes, laundry detergent, air fresheners, candles and the list goes on.
I find that once you have weened off synthetic fragrances you get more sensitive to synthetic aromas and instead appreciate natural perfumes and scents more, even pick up beautiful subtleties .
Unfortunately this new law makes it even more difficult for consumers. As we had to mark our new Body buddy with the word “parfum” I’ve already had calls asking if we now use synthetic ingredients. The answer is NO, we only use the finest organic essential oils, Bergamot, Sweet orange and lemongrass. The scent is delicious and Body buddy is 100% natural.
