Creating names for organic skincare products

When creating skincare products, not only do I think about the ingredients being effective and planet friendly. It’s also super fun to think of clever and humorous names to our family of products. Sometimes I know the name years before the product is created 😃 We have an eye cream planned in the near future. What do you think the name will be? 🤔

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

Earthing

Have you heard about the new trend earthing or grounding? This involves walking barefooted 🦶in nature. At the beach, in the park or anywhere else
you feel comfortable taking your shoes off. It’s the
latest wellbeing trend. A study by the University of California Irvine has suggested that
skin-to-earth contact could have many potential benefits, including reduced inflammation and pain and increased blood flow. This is because the earth is loaded with electrons that have an
antioxidant effect. You have to spend at least 30 minutes barefoot to get the benefits 🌿

Maintain eye health with goji berries

For your eyes only.
To maintain eye health, go for goji berries.
Just a handful of goji
berries have been found
to help improve the
density of the protective
pigments in your eyes.
At the University of
California people aged 45-65 participated in a trial that found that those eating
28g (a handful) of goji
berries five days a week
for 90 days had an
improvement in the
protective pigments that
filter out blue light and
act as a sunscreen for
the eyes. Another group
took specific eye health
supplements, but their
levels of this protective
pigment remained
the same by the end
of the study. So go ahead, go for some gojis 🌿

Algica work as an efficient SPF booster. First in vitro studies showed that Algica increase the SPF in a formulation with an average of 23%.
In vivo studies shows that Algica can boost the SPF with an average of 13 % togheter with inorganic UV filters and with an average of 10 % with organic UV filters.

Algica's unique porous structure absorbs between 10-20 times more sweat, oil, bacteria and impurities, and provides three times faster absorption of oil and sweat, compared to other synthetic silica ingredients and diatomaceous earth.
The unique pore structure of Algica can also work as a carrier of other active ingredients such as vitamins and nutrients.

Algica has proven capabilities to regulate moisture levels in the skin. A controlled in vivo, randomized, double-blind study conducted by an external actor showed that Algica’s moisturizing properties fully match those of hyaluronic acid.

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. 💚

Natural sunscreen- good news

Who’s up for some good news?
In Finland they have developed a technique making sustainable “plastic” bottles from citrus 🍊 peels which can replace the fossil based PET plastic. 🤩

The Estonian capital, Tallinn has free public transport and strings of parks with wildflowers as a highway for bees. 🐝The Estonian capital is expected to be voted Green capital of 2023 much for its innovative approach to sustainable solutions. It’s impressive as it used to be home to several heavy polluting industries. It's a great example of how change is possible. 👏

In South Africa solar power bikers 🚴‍♀️ are busting wildlife poachers. The bikes are environmentally friendly and quiet so they have been very successful.

Our own Make my day cream has Algica, an organic algae grown in Sweden. We are waiting for it to be approved as a sunscreen. As it comes naturally from the sea it will not harm water , corals or any sea life 🐠🐟🐡🐬🐙🦀🐳🌊
