Natural sunscreen

UV shield this spring? Make My Day contains the revolutionary ingredient, Algica.
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.

The same study showed that the feeling of Algica on the skin is smoother. Algica is perceived as easier to apply and is absorbed faster than hyaluronic acid. Algica's sensory modifying properties make the feeling of the product smooth and exclusive.

Increase skin elasticity

I think we all know that broccoli is a super healthy food. But did you know that broccoli sprouts are even healthier and have 50-100 times more healing properties than the broccoli plant. The sprouts are three-to-five-day old broccoli plants. They are a great source of vitamins, minerals full of protein, fibres, and phytochemicals.

Broccoli sprouts provide around 100 times more glucoraphanin. Glucoraphanin converts into the phytochemical sulforaphane. Studies show that Sulforaphane may protect against cancer, reduce inflammation, protect against some brain conditions like stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and improve autism conditions. It may improve digestive health, heart health, lower blood sugar levels and improve joint health. Broccoli sprouts protect your skin from sun damage, reduce wrinkles, increase the elasticity in skin and strengthen hair follicles while slowing down the aging process. The sprouts are easy to grow but must be carefully washed as they are prone to bacterial contamination. I prefer to use organic broccoli sprout powder. It has a umami flavour and improves any dish but also great as a topping on popcorn and in smoothies.

Why I created All you need is me balm

All you need is me multi purpose balm was the first product I created. It was supposed to be only for babies 👶 as I got the idea for a clean, effective, organic balm when my son was born and couldn’t find anything else with ingredients I was prepared to put on his skin. Even the certified baby balms had something like only 5% organic levels and questionable ingredients. But then I discovered All you need is me balm was really great for everything. Hence the name. Protective and soothing for dry and irritated skin, no matter your age. I couldn’t just leave it to the babies.
I’ve heard that one of the members of our Swedish royal family loves All you need is me balm. But that’s a secret, so don’t tell anyone 🤫
