All you need is me for your muscles

Almost everyone has had sore and aching muscles at some time. It’s then easy to reach for the anti-inflammatory warming ointments that are marketed everywhere. They promise to relieve pain. But did you know that some of them contain the poisonous substance Diclofenac. Diclofenac causes a serious threat to fish, aquatic organisms, plants, and mammals. It’s also difficult to break down in wastewater treatment plants so there’s a risk it ends up polluting our waterways. The Swedish medical products agency (Läkemedelsverket) are proposing a ban on these and other products that harm the environment in retail outlets except pharmacies. In my opinion there should be a ban on products that harm the environment everywhere. Check the ingredients in your ointments or tablets and try to avoid using one that contains Diclofenac. All the ingredients in All you need is me balm are anti-inflammatory. 100% of the ingredients are natural and 95% organic so it won’t damage the environment plus it comes in a sustainable tube made out of sugarcane. . Its lovely and soothing on tired, tight muscles, so why not try it next time? Even better if you can convince someone to give you a nice massage ;)

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.

Sunscreen of the future

Our Make my day face cream is featured in the Swedish magazine Damernas Värld ! @damernasvarld

”Sunscreen of the future
We love sunscreen, but many unfortunately have a detrimental effect on the environment.
That’s why we keep our fingers crossed that Algica will soon be approved as a UV-filter by EU
Algica is made of algae shells and is cultivated by the company Swedish Algae Factory @swedishalgaefactory - totally organic, natural and environmentally friendly.
Besides potential UV protection, Algica also moisturises and acts as an anti-pollution barrier.
Make my day by True organic of Sweden is the first face cream with this ingredient.”

As eco nerds, this is so interesting and we are so excited to be at the forefront in this area
Planet friendly ingredients all the way!
