Product List

Eyes may be windows to the soul, but the health of our hair, skin and nails is a direct reflection of what we are within.  

Ironically, as skin is our largest organ, absorbing everything we put on it, what may seem great for skin today, could impact on our internal health over long-term use – and often the first warning signs of that are seen in our hair, skin and nails.

Many leading brand have what we call 'skin nasties' in them, such as

Artificial colours – in lipsticks, skin creams and foundations. 
Petroleum by-products – found in tumours and shown to cause premature skin aging and acne. 

Artificial fragrances (parfum) ¬– can cause allergic skin reactions, and often derived from petroleum by-products.
Parabens
– preservatives used to kill bacteria and fungi in body products. 

Sulphates – surfactants foam and clean, but strip natural oils leaving skin and hair dry, and cause irritations.

Methylisothiazolinone (MIT) – biocide shown by some studies to cause damage to brain cells.

Lanolin – moisturising agent from sheep sweat used in skin products, lotions, creams and baby oils. 

Specially Denatured (SD) alcohol – solvent can cause dry skin.

Isopropyl myristate – helps other products absorb, can dry skin and clog pores, causing acne and inflammation.

Formaldehyde – preservative in cosmetics, linked to numerous adverse reactions and classified as a carcinogen. 

Animal derived products – many skin care products contain animal products like ambergris (sperm whale vomit), civet extract (from its musk sac) and tallow (meat waste from slaughterhouses).

When there are safe alternatives available, why bother?
Today’s science and technology, combined with the ancient sciences of nature, create skin care products that are gentle, healing, soothing and more in tune with people; by their very definition, synergetic to our bodies since they are derived from living organisms which are bio-available to our skin cells. This means they are ideal for sensitive skin (inherited, usually in fair skins), and sensitised skin (reacting to cosmetics, environmental aggressors or poor diet).
