True organic of Sweden is proud to launch Make my day cream
Day creams rarely stand out as unique, but we have formulated Make my day with the future potential planet friendly sunscreen Algica.
This is a revolutionary product, and we are first in the world with a day cream containing Algica. Make my day is a soothing face cream rich in antioxidants and super foods like oat kernel oil, rosehip oil, blueberry seed oil, turmeric, hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E. The revolutionary ingredient is Algica, the shell of an organically grown microalgae. Tests are currently being conducted to approve this algae material by the EU as an environmentally friendly UV-filter for use in sunscreen. Algica shells originate from the sea and are thereby completely safe for oceans and sea life. As we are all aware today, we need to protect our fragile oceans from harmful and unnatural chemical substances that endanger life in our waters. https://swedishalgaefactory.com/lab/personal-care/ Make my day leaves your skin with a revitalized complexion, balanced moisture levels while naturally slowing the signs of aging and protecting against all harsh elements. 100% natural 79% organic Sustainable packaging from sugarcane
To celebrate this exciting launch, we have an introductory offer
25% discount on Make my day cream and all our other products too.
It’s an ideal time to get your sustainable holiday gifts 🎁
An automatic discount of 25% is applied on orders between November 15-27th 2019
As several people who I am close to have discovered malignant skin lesions. Here’s a little reminder to check your skin for suspicious changes and get a screening. Skin cancer is the fastest growing cancer type today and it can spread rapidly. New screening methods are being developed like a “bandaid” that you press on the suspected spot for sometime and then get it analyzed at the pharmacy. Another is being developed by Swedish university @kthuniversity , a device that can analyze the lesion in seconds.
Always use sunscreen with planet friendly ingredients when spending time in the sunshine. Small studies show that taking vitamin C and E supplements may significantly increase the skin’s ability to stand up to UV rays.

Listened to a holistic health specialist yesterday. Had my breathing tested, it turns out that I like most people breathe too shallow. Some of the benefits of deep breathing are
*natural pain killer
*improves blood flow
*increases energy levels
*detoxifies the body
*stimulates lymphatic system
Apparently only people who regularly meditate and practice mindfulness pass this test.
The specialist recommended trying to sleep with a thin piece of surgical tape across the lips so you only breathe through your nose. She said it’s like doing yoga breathing through the night. Maybe something to try ?
Did you hear that a new EU regulation has decided that veggie burgers now have to be called veggie discs?
Makes me think of disc jockey, floppy disk, diskmaskin (for Swedish people)
It’s a little bit funny, no? ..
Like someone ordering a bean burger would get confused and ask “Where is the meat?”
Hmm... is the meat industry behind this maybe?

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.
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.
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.
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!

Have you heard of forest bathing? It’s a health trend originating from Japan. It means simply being in the forest, taking in the atmosphere of the forest through our senses. It’s meant to be enjoyed slowly, not through a sweaty hike or run.
There are many health benefits and it definitely improves the overall feelings of wellbeing.

Don’t forget to leave some of your lawn uncut for our pollinators.
Here’s a list of 10 nectar rich flowers that bees and butterflies love. For planting in pots or in your garden:
Lavender (also keeps mosquitoes away), Dahlia, Wallflower, Borage or Starflower, Foxgloves, Cosmos, Scabious, Verbena, Marigolds (I tried but only got leaves 🙄) and Marjoram or better known as Oregano. Happy planting 🌱

We don’t all have coral reefs but we have lakes, waters, sea life and a beautiful planet that needs our help. If you think about it, these chemicals destroy sea life, imagine what it does to our skin and bodies before we flush it out again in the environment.
Here is a list of the worst offenders in sunscreens: oxybenzone, benzophenone-3, octinoxate, octyl methoxycinnamate, octocrylene, 4-methyl-benzylidene camphor, triclosan and more.
Just because it’s sold in a pharmacy doesn’t render it safe, please check the ingredients.
Take care of our oceans, lakes, rivers, sea life and planet, choose a mineral based sun cream ☀️

Pesticides, lack of food and a changed landscape threaten our little wild gardeners. It means serious consequences for our future. We are totally dependent on the crucial work of bees and other insects. About a third of the food we humans eat is pollinated by them.
What can you and I do to help? The problem seems overwhelming but there are quite a few small things we can do as individuals to help. If you have a lawn, leave some of it to become a flowery meadow and plant bee friendly flowers. Build a bee hotel, it’s not so complicated, watch and learn from a Youtube clip. Plant bee and butterfly friendly flowers on your balcony. All different butterflies have a special host flower of plant where they deposit their eggs and the caterpillars eventually feed. Caterpillars are particular which host plant they will feed off, so you can choose which butterflies you would like to hopefully visit.
Choose and support organic food, skincare, clothes etc.
Don’t use pesticides in your garden or harsh chemical cleaning and washing detergents in your home. For your families health and the health of our planet.
