Antipollution means anti-aging

Antipollution = anti-aging

You may have heard the term antipollution being used more frequently about skincare and makeup over the past few years. But what does it actually mean? If you are living or working in a city you can’t help but notice the dust in the street coloring everything grey. You may not notice that the air smells bad if you breathe the polluted air every day. Then when you visit the countryside, the air smells so good you know that you have been in a polluted environment. What is this pollution doing to our skin? There is a great deal of interest in the subject and a lot of emerging scientific research is being done. Toxic air has been linked to premature aging, accelerating wrinkles and age spots. The small particles enter through our pores. If you are not in the city, it doesn’t help being nearby as the particles are spread by the wind. That’s why we see more and more antipollution products on the market. Traffic pollution is emerging as the single most toxic substance for our skin. We were delighted to hear that Algica, an algae that is one of the active ingredients in our Make my day cream has been cleared as an antipollution substance after clinical studies.

Algica, together with Vitamin E, also an antipollution protector in Make my day cream makes it an effective pollution shield.

Anti pollution organic skincare

We can now claim that our Make my day cream protects skin from air pollution damage. A recently conducted study showed that Algica, which is one of the ingredients in Make my day, prevents harmful air pollution from reaching the skin. Exposure of the skin to air pollutants has been associated with skin aging, inflammation, sagging, uneven and dull skin tone. Air pollution may even be as damaging as sun exposure on unprotected skin.
We are very excited about this news! Algica is a real hero ingredient 😀💫✨For more information about Algica check out swedishalgaefactory.com

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 😋 😉

The National institute of health in India (NIH) has published research showing Aloe Vera also has moisturizing and anti-aging benefits that can help decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.

We have added Aloe Vera to our beautiful Body buddy lotion and Sea me mask. Sea me mask is especially good for acne prone skin.
