Sourcing organic product ingredients

When creating our new products, for True organic of Sweden, the ingredients are very carefully considered. They have to be effective, clean, not too expensive and always planet friendly. When I discovered that rosewood is endangered, I immediately changed to ho-leaf essential oil in our Undercover agent deodorant. Unfortunately it puts a lot of pressure on the consumer to check ingredients before buying. I’m there myself, googling ingredients before buying something new. But, I think we have to. The profit driven organic certification organizations are no guarantee, they let through a lot of ingredients that are not planet friendly at all.

What the press is saying about Body buddy lotion

Love it when the beauty editors also love our products. This is what beauty editor, the lovely 💚@susannebarnekow from @plazakvinna magazine has to say about our Body buddy lotion:

“Aloe vera, oat kernel oil, squalane, vitamin E and lactic acid are some of the fantastic main ingredients in True Organic’s new Body buddy. The cream is light but long lasting and has a wonderful refreshing scent of citrus. An essential and natural product to enjoy this winter.”

 

As my products are like my babies, it really warms my heart, hearing that other people like them too. From the idea to ingredient sourcing to finished product takes a long time and you get attached to your “kids” hoping that the world will receive them well 😉 so thank you 😊

Solution to dry itchy skin

Hydration station
     When we develop new products, the ingredients are of utmost importance of course and thoroughly researched and tested. When making a body lotion there were several criteria to consider. It had to keep skin moisturized all day, penetrate skin quickly, sustainable, natural and organic ingredients and a have a lovely scent. This is why we chose oat kernel oil as one of the main ingredients. Oats have incredible antioxidant benefits, which make them pretty amazing as a moisturizer. Oat oil can provide massive relief for anyone suffering from itchy skin. Although it’s an oil, it is highly absorbable by the skin, meaning no greasy residue and all the great benefits sinking straight into the skin and also penetrating deeply.
We included it in our Body buddy lotion because of its ability to nourish and soothe maturing, sensitive and damaged skin, and for its support of the elasticity of skin. This means that when you apply it in the morning, your skin is still soft and supple in the evening. With the uplifting citrus scent it puts a zing! to my morning and makes it easier to face the day

Great things happening 2019

Great things happening 2019. It’s not only gloom and doom. Even if we have a long way to go. Here are some small steps in the right direction.
Many countries and states are banning elephants and other animals from performing at the circus.
A ban on microbeads in personal care products such as shower gels, toothpaste, cleaning products, etc takes effect 2019. These microbeads are so small, they pass through the filters in the water treatment plants and end up in our waters where they absorb toxins and are eaten by marine life and eventually ending up on our plates. Microbeads are not biodegradable so they stay around forever.
There has been a nonsmoking policy in enclosed areas in the EU for several years and from 2019 in Sweden you can no longer smoke in outside cafés, train platforms and outside public buildings. Yay!
Next year 2020 EU is restricting the use of antibiotics in farm animals. Now all farm animals routinely get antibiotics even if they are not sick with the exception on organic farms . Next year only sick animals will get antibiotics. Doesn’t sound very appetizing to me. Livestock farming contributes 18% of human produced greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. This is more than all emissions from ships, planes, trucks, cars and all other transport put together.
We can all contribute by eating less or no meat at all.
Feel good result from a study made 2018 by fishing trawlers in the North Sea, previously they picked up 40% plastic bags, now it’s 16%
It shows that the little things you and me are doing makes a difference.

Steps for a Healthier Skin

Steps for a Healthier Skin

 

Everybody wants healthy, natural looking skin.  There are many things you can do to obtain a healthier looking skin.  Sometimes it can be confusing knowing what steps to take to improve your skin.  That's why we created this simple guide to help lead you in the right direction.  

 

Stay Hydrated

 

Our skin reflects how we treat our body.  If we don't drink enough water, our skin will look dehydrated.  Dehydration can cause our skin to look dry and dull.  Our body requires 8 cups of water daily to remove unwanted toxins and help achieve a glowing skin.

 

Wash Your face before going to bed

 

After a long day, the last thing a woman wants to do is wash her face.  Cleansing your skin before bed is more important than cleansing in the morning because your skin is exposed to the sun, dirt, makeup, debris, and pollution. Don’t forget to wash your face before bed!

 

Protection

 

One of the most important ways to protect the skin is by protecting it from the sun.  Extensive sun exposure can cause a variety of symptoms, some of which include wrinkles, age spots and more.  Use an SPF daily which has at least 10-15 SPF.  When outside for an extended period, look for shade or wear a hat. When swimming, apply sunscreen more often.  

 

Moisturizer

 

Daily Moisturizer is a great defense against dehydrated skin.  Apply a cream or moisturizer after showering to help seal the moisture that your skin has just absorbed in the shower.  Depending on your climate your skin may get dry throughout the day.  Apply moisturizer throughout the day to prevent skin from getting dry

 

Facial Mask

 

Using a facial mask is one of the easiest ways to get healthy glowing skin in just a few minutes.  Some of the benefits of using face masks include:

 

increases hydration: Face masks can bring moisture and hydration to dry and dehydrated skin types.  The water from the mask penetrates deep into the skin to soften the skin and improve its elasticity. When skin is hydrated it becomes firmer and obtains a more youthful appearance.  

 

 

reduces fine lines: Regular use of a face mask can reduce the signs of aging such as fin lines, brown spots, and wrinkles.  In addition, you can enjoy softer and smoother skin.  

 

improves skin firmness. Loose skin can make you look older than you are. There are many types of treatments to help firm skin.  Using a face mask is at the top of the list to help increase skin firmness.

 

Serum

 

Serum is being implemented into skin care routines is on the rise.  Serums have the highest concentration of active ingredients that you can get without a prescription. Cleansers and moisturizers usually contain 5-10% active ingredients whereas serums contain up to 70% active ingredients. Additional active ingredients mean you are getting more results when looking to reduce fine lines, brighten and firm skin.
