Toxic free cosmetics and personal care products products

Planet friendly ingredients are also human skin and body friendly. We have to become 🕵️‍♀️ detectives when it comes to skincare. Many everyday cosmetics and personal care products have 1. Known carcinogenic and 2. Probable carcinogenic ingredients. No warning labels.
Oh, it’s such small amounts one might think, but add all the other products we use every day, year after year.
Just look at the J&J baby powder. Why would you even risk it, and on your baby no less?
It’s scary to me.

Squalane in our Make my day cream and Body buddy lotion

What is squalane?
It’s an oil that is increasingly common in skincare.
We have squalane in our face cream Make my day and in our body lotion Body buddy.
The reason is that it is a phenomenal multitasking moisturizing oil
that leaves skin visibly plump, hydrated and minimizes signs of redness and irritation.
Squalane reduces the look of fine line and wrinkles, locks in moisture, improves skin
elasticity, helps protect skin and assists with oil control while it doesn’t block pores.
The squalane we use is naturally derived from olives.
Watch out though, there is also squalene with an e.
This is either unethically derived from shark liver or a synthetic material.
Squalane -yes! Squalene -no!

Creating the best face cream ever made

What goes into the process of creating a new skincare product?

I knew I wanted to add a face cream to my line of organic skincare products.

Then I had to ask myself. What do I want from a face cream, other than 100% natural and as high organic content as possible in sustainable packaging?

I knew I wanted plenty of hydration, to prevent loss of moisture, reduce appearance of acne and wrinkles, anti-inflammatory benefits, increase cell regeneration and enhance collagen levels.

I really wanted to use a UV filter as I know how damaging UV rays are to the skin, whether its summer or a cloudy winter day. But the existing UV filters are still not the best for the planet, I hesitated. Like a sign from the universe, I was contacted by Sofie Allert, the CEO of Swedish algae factory. She informed me they are growing organic Algica, an algae shell that has shown promise to be a future sunscreen and antipollution protection for the skin.

We launched Make my day last month with carefully selected active organic ingredients that tick off the points on my wish list. A soothing day cream rich in antioxidants and superfoods like Algica, Squalane, Jojoba seed oil, Cocoa seed butter, Oat kernel oil, Rosehip oil, Blueberry seed oil, Turmeric, Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E.

Make my day leaves you with a revitalized complexion and balanced moisture

Sustainable innovations

Since there is a vast reduction of plastic bags and single use plastic items, do you ever think about the people in the plastic business? Were (are) they forward thinking and started to source new raw materials? Did they simply close the factory or looked for new customers in other countries? Fortunately, the doors for plastic are closing everywhere in the world.

I’m really looking forward to seeing and hearing about all new sustainable innovations and ideas that are buzzing out there in the world.

We were fortunate to find sugarcane tubes from the start, so we never had to use plastic tubes for our organic skincare.

When I lived in Thailand many years ago, my neighbors were an American/Thai family. The husband, a freelancer working from home, was sourcing plastic straws for Starbucks. This is how he supported his family. I wonder what he is doing now….

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.

Veggie burgers

Did you hear that a new EU regulation has decided that veggie burgers now have to be called veggie discs? 

Makes me think of disc jockey, floppy disk, diskmaskin (for Swedish people) 

It’s a little bit funny, no? ..

Like someone ordering a bean burger would get confused and ask “Where is the meat?” 

Hmm... is the meat industry behind this maybe?
