Close Chinese wetmarkets

Spring has sprung in Sweden. What puts a damper on things is that the ban has been lifted on the horrific , disease ridden animal markets in China. Animals cramped in small metal baskets treated with extreme cruelty. If they don’t care about animals, then look at how the world is today and the tragedy the pandemic has caused. I don’t get how these markets are allowed to open again, do you?

Jojoba oil in Make my day face cream

When we at True organic of Sweden create new products, every single ingredient is carefully selected. Equally important is what we don’t want in the product. We are much stricter than the profit driven organic certification bodies. In our new Make my day face cream we have jojoba(ho-ho ba) oil. The thought behind it is, that our skin is made up of natural wax esters (called sebum). The sebum locks in moisture to keep skin hydrated and healthy. The sebum production begins to decrease as we age,  which means, fine lines, dry skin and sagging take place . The amazing thing with the jojoba plant is that it  naturally produces wax esters identical to our very own sebum. This means jojoba oil mimics our own skin’s natural oils and can penetrate at deeper levels. Because it is able to penetrate deep into the skin, it may help to ferry down the other active ingredients in Make my day where they can do some great work.

Jojoba oil is a real multitasker and it’s well researched. It has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, hypoallergenic and antibacterial properties. Jojoba oil is loaded with antioxidants, Vitamin B, minerals like chromium, copper and zinc. It also contains both omega 6 and omega 9.

It balances out your complexion, adding more sebum where it’s needed and less where you don’t.

Jojoba oil is for people with acne prone skin, people who want to slow down the aging process, people with sensitive skin, people with dry skin or patches, people with oily skin.

Jojoba oil is simply a star ingredient, wouldn’t you agree?

Organic balm for everything

I often get the question : Why did you start your business.
I developed the idea of All you need is me when my son was born.
He had diaper rash and I had sore nipples from breast feeding.
Having just completed a degree in science of natural health, I was not happy to put any of the existing balms on my son. Even the certified organic ones that had maybe 5% organic ingredients and the rest could be anything.
When I returned to Sweden after many years, I started looking into how to develop a cream. The result was All you need is me. The name came about as it’s really good for everything :)
From diaper rash, cuts, scrapes, minor burns, sore muscles, dry skin, as an overnight face mask, protecting skin from cold weather and wind and so much more. I still today get people telling me new uses.
All you need is me is 95% organic, 100% natural and it comes in a sustainable tube made of sugarcane.
All you need is me ingredients are
Castor oil, beeswax, olive oil, Shea butter, vitamin E, blueberry seed oil and rosemary leaf extract.
Nothing else, not even water. There’s no need for preservatives as there’s vitamin E, blueberry seed oil but no water. I have actually tasted all the ingredients myself . The olive oil is delicious 😋 😉

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!

Gentle rejuvenating treatments for sensitive skin

3 Gentle Rejuvenating Treatments for Sensitive Skin



If you have highly sensitive skin, you have likely avoided rejuvenating treatments like microdermabrasion and chemical peels in the past. You know your skin, and the most sensitive skin simply cannot handle some rejuvenating treatments. Red and flaky skin is not worth the risk.

But sensitive skin also deserves a little rejuvenating love and care every now and then!

Luckily, there are rejuvenating skin treatments out there designed specifically to cater to all skin types, even the most prone to reaction.

If you’re looking for a treatment to rejuvenate your skin without making it angry, you can try HydraFacial, a superficial peel, or an Oxygen Facial to rejuvenate while also soothing your skin.

HydraFacial
If you’re looking for a treatment that will hydrate and rejuvenate your skin simultaneously, HydraFacial is a great option.

Though HydraFacial is a medical grade facial treatment, it is very gentle on your face and is customizable depending on your specific skin needs. Your aesthetician will have the opportunity to perform a skin analysis to make sure the products used in your HydraFacial will be gentle enough for sensitive skin.

When you get a HydraFacial, you will experience a multi-step treatment, including cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and replenishment. During the treatment, your provider will choose serums to replenish the vital nutrients your skin needs to look its very best. 

Since the treatment is customizable, you can make sure you get an organic HydraFacial, by asking your provider to use completely organic serums during your treatment.

You will leave your HydraFacial with your skin feeling replenished and looking instantly healthier and more youthful. This is the perfect skin treatment for regular maintenance or to enjoy right before a major event where you want to make a great impression.

Superficial Peel
Another option for those with sensitive skin to experience skin rejuvenation and/or resurfacing is a superficial peel. Though many people think of skin and chemical peels as extremely irritating to the skin, superficial peels usually only leave mild redness behind without any peeling.

You can find superficial peels at medical spas or purchase them for at-home use.

If you do opt for the DIY route, make sure you do your research and find a peel with gentle ingredients. Some peels are completely organic and will not leave your skin with any redness while still offering resurfacing results.

You can add a superficial peel to facials you might get with most skincare providers, or you can choose to enjoy only a superficial peel. Either way, a superficial peel will keep your skin protected while also giving it a rejuvenated look and feel.

Oxygen Facial
The Oxygen Facial is another great option for those with sensitive skin who want major results. Since the Oxygen Facial combines the use of peels, active oxygen, and customizable serums to rejuvenate the skin, it is perfect for treating issues like acne, dullness, and signs of aging, while also catering to sensitive skin types.

Like HydraFacial, Oxygen Facial is almost completely customizable, so you can choose an Oxygen Facial with products designed specifically for individuals with sensitive skin.

Oxygen Facial is especially great for skin that gets congested easily. After an Oxygen Facial, you will leave feeling completely refreshed, and your skin will be glowing. 

This is another facial perfect for maintenance or for making your skin look extra beautiful for a one-time event. And it’s great for sensitive skin, so you don’t have to worry about too much redness or irritation afterwards.

______

So if you have sensitive skin and always thought you had to stay away from skin rejuvenating treatments, think again. There are definitely options out there for you that will give you amazing results without irritating your skin. 

Imagine skin rejuvenation that is actually gentle! No matter what treatment you try, make sure you choose a provider you trust that uses ingredients you believe in. And enjoy feeling rejuvenated!

Not only are they rich in precious omega-3 fatty acids, but they’re also intensely anti-inflammatory, calming and antioxidant-rich. What does that mean exactly? Chia seed oil is a great bet for restoring vital moisture, diminishing redness and inhibiting the appearance of wrinkles.
