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 🌿

7 best organic and natural deodorants for men

It’s not every day we talk or even think about our armpit health. But how could we not!?  These awkward little scoops of space beneath our arms are home to some very important lymph nodes that function to detoxify your body. Unfortunately, many of us are clogging the pores that release these toxins that are meant to be removed from the body. It’s time to replace the toxic mess you may be applying to your sensitive areas with one of the best natural deodorants for men in our list. But first, we must assess the damage.

Stop reaching for your scent-laden sport stick, clear antiperspirant gel, or spray canister,  if they contain any of the following carcinogenic ingredients that are keeping your armpits from doing their job.

Toxins in Conventional Deodorant

Did you know there are ingredients lingering in your current deodorant that could be slowly making you sick?

Checking labels usually means discovering there’s no actual Sandalwood in your “Sandalwood-scented sports stick” and instead you’ll be bombarded with hyphenated words that are impossible to pronounce. Even if there are only a few ingredients on the list, it doesn’t make it safe or natural. Here’s a list of the most common active ingredients found in deodorant, how the body responds to them, and why it’s best to replace them with one from our list of the best natural deodorants for men.

Aluminum

Aluminum-based compounds are the most common active ingredient in and perhaps the most dangerous. Acting as an antiperspirant, aluminum blocks sweat glands trapping the body’s natural waste from escaping. If absorbed (and it often is depending on how long you wear your deodorant), aluminum will alter the structure of estrogen receptors in breast cells (because of proximity) and increase the likelihood of breast cancer--yes, men get this too. Additional estrogen in men can also create other symptoms like enlarged breasts, infertility, and ED.

Triclosan

Triclosan serves as a preservative and powerful antibacterial in things like deodorant, antiperspirant, hand sanitizer, and other cosmetics. It seems natural to want to kill the bacteria on your pits but at what cost? The FDA labels Triclosan as a pesticide while the EPA calls it a probable carcinogen. The use of these ingredients creates toxic buildup in the body and deteriorates our environment, especially aquatic life.

Parabens

Prosecuting parabens isn’t new for this blog but unfortunately, they continue to be used in 75-90 percent of men’s body care products. The most common include methylparaben, propylparaben, ethylparaben, and butylparaben. Parabens are used as a preservative but what they actually do is alter hormones. Yet another risk for men to experience spikes in estrogen levels.

Parfum/Fragrances

Most men seek a strong, masculine scented deodorant. But you may be exposing yourself to a synthetic chemical soup that can damage your lungs, irritate your armpits, and cause allergic reactions.

Toxins in Conventional Deodorant

Unfortunately, the danger of these deodorants don’t manifest themselves immediately but over time can result in asthma, kidney damage, allergies, and even cancer. Beyond the long-term damage, the use of products that contain these toxins can cause you to be tired, unfocused, and can affect your appetite and mood.

Have you discovered any of these perpetrating ingredients in your current deodorant? If so, toss it out!. Your armpits deserve better, your health is too important, plus we’ve got stellar alternatives for you. Here are the best natural deodorants for men.

What makes Scandinavian beauty different


1. What is it that make Scandinavian beauty regimes different from those from other area of the world?

Many Scandinavians embrace a holistic approach to great skin. It’s not just what you apply onto your skin, it’s also what you eat, mental wellbeing and how you exercise. Scandinavian women are knowledgeable on how strong fatty acids can increase the barrier functions of cells. Most people want to keep it simple and avoid long complicated routines.


2. Which product in your in your range do you consider the most Scandinavian and why?

They are all very Scandinavian as I like to use natural, pure, simple but effective ingredients, but if I would have to pick one it would be our multi award winning balm All you need is me. I have actually tasted all ingredients, that’s how pure it is. There are only 5 ingredient but as they are natural they work in synergy and become even more effective together.


3. How do you define Scandinavian beauty?
Pure, natural, organic, clean ingredients. Products that stimulate the skin and provide great results, without any damage and side effects to the skin or the planet. Stylistically pure packaging often made of recycled or sustainable materials.
