Oat based skincare soothing itching skin

Oats are not just great for breakfast. 🥣Oat based creams 🧴are often recommended by skin therapists for various skin conditions. The antioxidant, anti inflammatory ingredient found only in oats, called avenanthramides is why oat based skincare is so good at soothing itching and irritated skin. We have added the finest oat kernel oil to Body buddy lotion. It’s sure to keep your dry and itchy skin smooth and supple. Bonus is the delicious citrus scent 😋
We still have our autumn SALE on trueorganicofsweden.com!

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!

Sustainable innovations

Since there is a vast reduction of plastic bags and single use plastic items, do you ever think about the people in the plastic business? Were (are) they forward thinking and started to source new raw materials? Did they simply close the factory or looked for new customers in other countries? Fortunately, the doors for plastic are closing everywhere in the world.

I’m really looking forward to seeing and hearing about all new sustainable innovations and ideas that are buzzing out there in the world.

We were fortunate to find sugarcane tubes from the start, so we never had to use plastic tubes for our organic skincare.

When I lived in Thailand many years ago, my neighbors were an American/Thai family. The husband, a freelancer working from home, was sourcing plastic straws for Starbucks. This is how he supported his family. I wonder what he is doing now….

Hope for 2017

Yes, 2016 was rough, for many people, a year to forget.
From the continued war in Syria, terror attacks, political turmoil and we lost some amazing people.
But, amid that darkness, there were also many wonderful things that happened in 2016.

My top favorites are:

Humpback whales were removed from the endangered species list

Green sea turtles in Florida and Mexico were taken off the endangered list

Gambia and Tanzania banned child marriage

Norway became the first country in the world to commit to zero deforestation

In 2016 Costa Rica ran solely on renewable energy for over 100 days. Now it's aiming for an entire year with no fossil fuels

Plastic bag use dropped massively in UK thanks to charging for them

The US finalized new regulations to shut down commercial elephant ivory trade within its borders

In September, giant pandas became the latest species to be taken off the endangered list.

The first round-the-world flight by a solar powered plane was completed by Solar impulse 2 in Abu Dhabi

What were your favorite things that happened in 2016?
Wishing you a fantastic 2017 ! Love, happiness, health, prosperity, joy and lots of laughter
