Natural ingredients work in synergy for potent results

Natural ingredients work in synergy for more potent results.

How's your skin-care routine looking these days? If you're like many of us, you're probably stocking up on the latest products and trends—but have you considered how your ingredients are working together to give you your best skin ever?

You may have heard about the power of natural skincare ingredients, but what you may not know is that when these ingredients come together in synergy, they can make all the difference in giving you radiant skin. Natural ingredients offer a range of benefits that synthetic options simply cannot compete with, and they are also more eco-friendly. In this article, we'll dive into the power of natural skincare ingredients and how they work together for gorgeous results. True organic of Sweden only use natural ingredients that are working in synergy to make the products more powerful.

Why Natural Skincare Ingredients Are Better for Your Skin and the Planet

Here at True organic of Sweden we believe using natural ingredients to nourish and heal your skin can be more beneficial than opting for synthetic ones. Natural ingredients contain antioxidants, minerals, proteins, and vitamins that can soothe your skin and provide essential nutrition. Plants-based ingredients have also been found to help improve collagen production and reduce the signs of aging. Natural ingredients such as aloe vera, olive oil, and shea butter are some of the most common examples that are used in skincare products as they are known to be effective in calming inflamed skin. All those are in our multi award winning All you need is me balm.

As well as being better for your skin, natural skincare products are better for the planet too. The use of natural ingredients helps to reduce environmental pollution by avoiding unnecessary chemicals not only from our products but also from the production processes. Natural skincare also allows us to return to the basics, focusing on what we already have in nature instead of creating new synthetic alternatives. This allows us to prioritize natural ingredients and harness their power in synergy with each other rather than relying on artificial chemicals which may be potentially harmful.

How Natural Ingredients Work in Synergy for Potent Results

Ever wonder what makes a natural skincare formulation so powerful? The answer: synergy. When natural ingredients are combined correctly, they can create a positive reaction that is more effective than the sum of the parts.

For example, essential oils in combination with other natural extracts can create healing powers that one oil couldn't do alone. Natural oils and extracts have different components that react with each other to garner potent results.

Our formulators at True organic of Sweden use synergetic blends of natural ingredients, they can create a product with better results or faster impact—without relying on synthetic ingredients or chemicals to achieve those effects. Combining potent natural extracts not only helps address skin issues, it also builds the skin's immunity and improves overall health and well-being in the long run.

The Power of Antioxidants: Vitamin C and Vitamin E

It's no secret that Vitamin C is an important antioxidant for healthy skin. It helps to increase the production of collagen and prevent oxidative stress from environmental damage. But when it comes to natural skincare products, the power of Vitamin C is amplified when combined with other antioxidants like Vitamin E.

When these ingredients come together in synergy, they can protect lipid peroxidation, which makes them ideal for a range of skincare products. In fact, studies show that Vitamin C is believed to play an important role in the prevention of lifestyle-related diseases such as cancer.

At True organic of Sweden, we use antioxidants in all our products.

 

Hydrating and Soothing: Aloe Vera, Castor oil and Shea Butter

These days, you know it's important to take care of your skin, and when it comes to doing so naturally, there are some special ingredients that work together fantastically. Aloe Vera, Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter are three key wonders that have moisture-sealing, barrier-repairing properties and will keep your skin looking beautiful. These ingredients are in our All you need is me balm, the first product of True organic of Sweden.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is an all-natural ingredient that can be used for sunburn relief and after sun repair. It’s packed with antioxidants like Vitamins A & C that help revitalize skin and make it more supple.

Castor Oil

Castor Oil is a natural replacement for the oil our skin produces. We want to help keep our skin hydrated and this oil can do just that—it penetrates deep into the layers of the dermis and gives us an added protection against irritants.

Shea Butter

Shea Butter is another natural ingredient which deeply hydrates and moisturizes skin. It also acts as a soothing agent for sensitive or inflamed skin—perfect if you often suffer from dryness or irritation!

Essential Oils for Radiance: Bergamot, Geranium and Rosehip Oil

We can’t talk about natural skincare ingredients without talking about essential oils! Essential oils are incredibly powerful and have been used for centuries as part of skincare regimens. On the top of the list are lavender and frankincense oil, both have some wonderful benefits for your skin. These are all in our Face it serum at True organic of Sweden

Bergamot is acclaimed for its calming and soothing properties, which make it great for treating acne-prone skin. It also helps reduce wrinkles, promote even toned complexion and has anti-inflammatory properties. Plus, Bergamot smells lovely!

Geranium is anti-inflammatory and is great if you have aging skin. It helps reduce puffiness, while providing a firming, nourishing and radiant effect on your skin.

And another one that deserves a mention is rosehip oil—it’s often referred to as “the oil of youth” because it’s packed with antioxidants that help with fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots.

Using natural ingredients like essential oils in facial serums magnifies each ingredient’s power in synergy with one another. Not to mention that these natural ingredients are better for the planet too!

All of these are in our Face it serum at True organic of Sweden.

How to Choose Natural Skincare Products with Ingredients in Synergy

When choosing natural skincare products, it’s important to make sure that the ingredients work together in synergy. At True organic of Sweden selection of ingredients in our skincare products is as paramount, as combining ingredients that complement each other can create a more powerful and effective product.

For instance, Vitamin C and Vitamin E can protect against free radicals and improve collagen production when combined. Other natural ingredients like amino acids, peptides, and plant-derived oils can be helpful in nourishing your skin from the inside out.

When picking out products for your skincare routine, look for ingredients that enhance, balance, and support each other to truly maximize their efficacy. Consider how the combination of natural compounds will work together to help your skin achieve its optimum radiance. After all, the combination of certain active natural ingredients is what makes real magic happen!

You find Vitamin C and E in the ingredients in our Make my day cream at True organic of Sweden.

Conclusion

Now you know that natural ingredients in skincare work in synergy with each other to make these products more powerful than anything synthetic. Additionally, using natural and organic products protects the environment in addition to providing you with better results. For a truly radiant and healthy complexion, natural and organic skincare products are the way to go—they are better for you and the planet.

Think of the ingredients used in skincare products not as separate entities, but rather as a holistic, natural powerhouse that works to give you the best results possible. This means that it’s likely that a combination of natural ingredients is going to work more effectively than just one or two single ingredients. So, do your research on the natural skincare ingredients out there, and find the perfect combination that works for you.

At True organic of Sweden, we are so proud of our natural organic products that have ingredients that work in synergy with each other.

The lymphatic system and skin health

When your lymphatic system is stagnant, it can show up on your skin. The lymphatic system assists with the expelling of toxins. It lies just beneath your skin. If it is not working as it should or clogged, your skin may suffer from acne, loss of elasticity, premature aging and other skin conditions. The lower body gets a head start in the morning as we get up to walk around and move. To get the circulation going for the upper body try this: clasp your hands behind your head so your elbows stick out. Now in a pumping motion put the elbows together in front of you for a count of 30-50 times. Other ways you can kickstart the system is to dry brush your skin and jump on a trampoline or maybe doing the chicken dance 😉

True organic of Sweden

True organic of Sweden

Organic and natural skincare products made in Sweden in sustainable packaging. True Organic of Sweden is a multi award winning brand for people who want effective skincare that is kind to the skin and the planet.

 

When my son was born I had just finished a degree in science of natural health. My son had diaper rash and I had sore breasts from breastfeeding. I searched for any ointment relief, even the organic certified ones had ingredients that I would never use on my son. They could have as little as 5 percent organic ingredients and the rest could be anything. How can this be?

I was living in Switzerland at that time, and when I moved back to Sweden, my home country a few years later, I started looking around for how to actually produce skin care. I found a wonderful organic and natural skin care guru.  Together we created the first product:  All you need is me balm. Two weeks after launch, All you need is me balm won its first award of many. It’s 100% natural and 95% organic in a compostable tube made of sugarcane. I was very happy and content with my accomplishment of such a unique, pure and effective balm but then people started to ask me “What is your next product “? Next product ?! I asked. After this I followed by  producing my own wish list of my dream skincare products. True organic of Sweden skincare brand was born.  True organic of Sweden skincare products are with as few ingredients as possible, as high in organic content as possible and ingredients that you recognize, at the same time very effective products that bring results. We have 7 products today and developing more.Our customers are loyal, we have a 60% return rate. http://trueorganicofsweden.com

Now we sell all over the world, to distributors, retailers and directly to consumers.

 

Starting as a one person company has been a challenge. Both financially and time wise. I have never wanted to employ lots of people but instead used freelancers and distributors responsible for their areas. The distributors have bought in bulk, have exclusive rights to their country but in return also been responsible for getting the products into retailers and conduct marketing, sales and PR. Some distributors have been better than others but as a small unknown brand it’s even difficult to get a distributor to look at your products. So if the distributors ignore their obligations there’s not much you can do other than remove the brand from them but then you might not fin anyone else willing to take your brand in that market.

 

Another challenge has been in the sourcing of ingredients and creating products that are efficient, as high in organic ingredients as possible, 100% natural using only planet friendly ingredients in sustainable packaging. Not all ingredients can be found grown organically. Most products have water and water can never be organic. This brings the organic level down. Organic produce is grown without synthetic fertilizers, genetic engineering, irradiation or pesticides. The plants need to grow at a certain distance from any farm that is not organic so the bees cannot fly in between. Our mission statement is  to create top quality skincare products with the highest levels of organic ingredients. We are committed to protect the planet, its resources and all those who populate it.

 

The skincare business is big and competition is fierce but the more of us organic and natural skincare producer there are, the better it is for our environment.If natural, organic products in sustainable packaging become the norm, the better it is for all of us, our children and the planet.

 

Looking towards future opportunities there is a very positive awareness that there is no planet B and everyone needs to do their bit.

 

With so many natural disasters around the world it’s difficult for even the most climate change deniers to ignore facts. People are looking for ways to do their bit to help our planet. More are turning to organic and natural products. We are becoming aware of sustainable packaging and getting upset when an item is packaged in far more plastic than needed. Luckily we see that innovation is buzzing and sustainable solutions are presented in every field.

 

With the pandemic we had to rethink like everyone else and concentrate our efforts more to the online business instead of retail stores. Our distributors who had mainly retail stores were suffering while the ones with online businesses were thriving. http://trueorganicofsweden.com

 

A business is a living thing and one needs to nurture it and be flexible because change is constant. Wether it’s a pandemic, war or inflation. Being a small business it may be easier to make a quick change. We for example had Rosewood essential oil in our deodorant Undercover agent. I found out that rosewood is endangered so we could quickly change to ho leaf essential oil instead with a similar scent.

 

Talking about being flexible and change, I have decided to take on a partner in the business. It’s one of our distributors who has more economical muscle and is an established skincare distributor. Together we will be able to create new products faster and more cost effective. If you take on a partner it’s important that you have the same vision and values. For me it’s not an unknown partner, I know and have worked with this company for several years.

 

The advice I can give anyone wanting to start a business is just do. You can have market research, plans and preparations for years but I say just start. Take a first step and then the next one. I have to say, everything takes much longer than you think and more expensive than you thought.

If you go ahead, do something you are passionate and interested in, feel the excitement and have fun! That’s what I always have said, I will do it as long as it’s fun

Why use a serum

Maybe you are doing all the right things: cleansing, exfoliating, masking, moisturizing and spf’ing and your skin is still not glowing. A serum could be exactly what your skin needs. Serums are thinner than traditional moisturizers and contain higher concentrations of active ingredients. They absorb quickly, are soothing and nourishing for sensitive skin, hydrate skin, prevent scars and blemishes, minimize breakouts, protect your skin from free radicals, boost collagen and the ingredients in Face it serum are all anti inflammatory.
Start with Sea me mask and make sure you leave your skin damp after washing off the mask, so the serum can be absorbed deeply into your skin. Follow with a moisturizer like Make my day cream to seal in the serum. Our award winning Face it serum is high performing with pure organic oils.

Ps. right now we have a 50% discount on Sea me mask for a limited time

Chlorella mask Sea me mask for healthy skin

We love to use face masks because they allow ingredients to penetrate into the skin in a short amount of time. It also reminds us of taking a little break in our busy day,  and who does not need that?  A face mask can deliver a more concentrated dose and more intense version than a moisturizer which is often water based. Sea me mask is based on aloe vera and chlorella, giving skin an extra boost. It can help refine skin pores for clearer skin, increase hydration, diminish fine lines, even skin tone and firm skin. Chlorella contains a nutrient called chlorella growth factor, this nutrient can help promote rapid tissue repair and cellular renewal. A great way to get healthy, bright looking skin.

Chlorella restores the production of skin’s collagen, calms unwanted redness, fights Inflammation and permanent sun damage. With these fantastic antioxidant properties, I don’t limit the benefits to my face. Sea me mask is equally beneficial as a scalp and hair mask.  You may look like a green monster for a few minutes when you have applied the mask (great to scare your family😆) But when you wash it off, you will shine 🤩

Humidity impact on skin

Be aware of the humidity changes in the climate because that has an impact on your skin’s needs. The colder the temperature, the dryer the air. This means that during cold weather the skin tends to loose moisture when it evaporates into the cold air. To prevent this moisture  loss it's important to use an oil, that locks in moist into the outer layers of the skin. When weather goes into spring, or warmer climate, the humidity levels increases in the air. This is why our skin feels less dry in warmer, more humid climates. Then adapt your routine to decrease the amount oil used. In daytime our soft Make My Day. This cream is excellent during sunnier times as the Algica in it acts as a uv filter. This one does the trick by itself, in warmer climate.
Many of you choose to use the cream during the day and the oil over night.
Just keep some attention to what your skin is telling you it needs and adapt the amount of oil contra cream according to what feels is giving you the most comfort. 💚

How to choose a Face oil that actually improves your skin

A top tip is to apply face oil to damp skin. If the skin is dry the oil just sits on top. Only a few drops are needed. The oil will spread itself so no need to slather loads. Another option is to add a few drops to your face cream. With face oils you usually get what you pay for. The finest organic oils are very expensive. But they are also active ingredients and can actually improve your skin. Our beautiful Face it is a blend of high performance pure organic oils. Chia seed oil packed with antioxidants, safflower oil to reduce the size of the pores and re-balance skin, rosehip oil helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, Vitamin E prevents premature aging, bergamot essential oil uplifts and promotes clear skin, geranium essential oil tightens and increases skin circulation.

Sea me mask for radiant , bright and clear skin

I often get the question, which is my favorite product. It’s a hard one to answer because I love all of them in a different way. But nothing gives me such radiant and clear skin as Sea me mask. It’s a real Cinderella mask. One of the reasons  Sea me mask is one of my favorite products is because we added a whopping 5% Chlorella in the recipe which really makes a difference.

 

Chlorella is a single cell green algae that grows wild in fresh waters. It’s packed with nutrients so great in your smoothie but did you know that when applied topically, it works through the layers of skin. It battles free radicals, plumps the skin’s appearance, fights photo damage from over exposure to skin and reduces inflammation.

 

Chlorella is great for all types of skin, it balances oily skin, detoxifies acne prone skin, keeps moisture for dry skin and calms unwanted redness. It’s packed with antioxidants for healthy glowing skin.

 

Chlorella fights against aging, promotes skin elasticity and visibly firms skin. When dead and dying cells remain on the face we get a dull and gray complexion. With regular use of Sea me mask the Chlorella encourages new cell turnover to reveal brighter younger looking skin.

 

Sea me mask is also the best acne treatment I have tried. It reduces the breakouts and improves skin quality. The lipids in Chlorella kill the microorganisms that are the cause of breakouts. Additionally the fatty acids disrupt the pro inflammatory cytokine activity that leads to more breakouts.

 

To sum it up Chlorella detoxifies your skin, it moisturizes and refreshes dry skin, nourishes skin, slowing the aging process, promotes clear skin
