Toilet talk

Keep a lid on it.
Here comes a bit of 🚽toilet talk and etiquette. Engineers at Boulder university recently conducted a scientific study that shows that particles from flushing the toilet with an open lid can fly up to 1,5 meters. It sprays on the walls, can zoom straight onto your face, land on your skin, and any objects we have in the bathroom.
While being meticulous keeping our skin fresh and clean, I don’t think anyone wants germs and bacteria sprayed on it. Sorry about this disgusting 🤢topic

How to apply face oil

When a face oil is applied to dry skin, it just sits on top. Make sure your skin is a slightly damp before you apply oils. The skin is more receptive when it’s damp, absorbs better and secures hydration and moisture.

How fit is your face?

How fit is your face? Try this for a more defined jaw line.

Facial exercising helps improve muscle tone in the face. It enhances flow of oxygen and circulation which increases skin elasticity. It may improve posture with the result of fewer headaches and less teeth grinding.

1. Tilt your head back until you can see the ceiling

2. Lift your lower lip over your upper lip as much as possible

3. While doing the second step, you should feel the jaw muscles near your ear

4. Rest in this position for 10 seconds

5. Release and repeat 12-15 times

Shallow breathing

Are you a shallow breather like me? Most people are shallow breathers or upper chest breathers. We usually don’t consciously think about breathing as it happens naturally. Shallow breathing prevents the body’s ability to take in oxygen and may lead to overall diminished health. It tricks the body into thinking you are always stressed. Shallow breathing may impair your thinking, increase blood pressure and heart rate. It keeps you from utilizing the respiratory muscles which can lead to reduced physical ability, lower endurance and becoming winded faster. Shallow breathing may cause sleeping issues and headaches. So what can we do? The techniques to breathing deeply are easy to learn but remembering to practice a few times a day might be harder. There are breathing apps that send you alerts, when you meditate, when you go to sleep. Anything that you do on a regular basis throughout your day can act as a reminder. I do it when I walk my dog. Even if it may feel unnatural to breathe deeply, it comes with many benefits. It allows your body to fully exchange incoming oxygen with outgoing carbon dioxide, slowing heartbeat, stabilize blood pressure and lower stress. Now take a deep breath and enjoy a lovely day 💚💚💚💚C

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 🤩

Sea me mask - skin and scalp

When I create my skincare products I’m adamant that the ingredients are natural and have as high organic levels as possible while being effective. This is why we included a whopping 5% of organic chlorella in Sea me mask. Chlorella is a single-celled, green freshwater algae.
Chlorella is nutrient-dense and containing a surplus of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6 B12 and C. Additionally, Chlorella has high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fibre, iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus and calcium. These vitamins and minerals are key benefactors in maintaining the health of your hair and skin.
For skin, Sea me mask hydrates, calms inflammation and draws out impurities leaving your skin firmer and glowing. Chlorella, compared to spirulina which might be more known, contains even higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which provide proteins and nutrients to hair follicles and skin. It’s also higher in antioxidants. Chlorella is a fantastic water plant that treats your hair on so many levels. It prevents hair loss by strengthening your hair strands and follicles. Chlorella keeps strands smooth, silky and shiny and increasing their elasticity. It nourishes and restores hair and scalp from the roots to the tips. If your hair gets greasy fast, Sea me mask lets you skip additional days of hair washing as it keeps hair clean longer. 👍
