  • Myth buster!! What does Sodium Laureth Sulphate do?

    You probably did not know but Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES) is a very strong detergent that is commonly used to clean the forecourts of garages and engines of cars!  It is found in shampoo, bubble bath, shower gel, liquid soap and even toothpaste!  It is what causes the BUBBLES.
    As a de-greaser you can imagine how it can badly irritate sensitive skin, and strip away your natural oils to cause dryness and cracked skin. 

    The alternative is to use bio-degradable coconut or almond derived cleansing agents which are great cleansers, gentle on the skin and on the environment. They do not bubble anything like as much, but the downside is that they are more expensive which is why natural products cost more. However the upside is you do not need to use so much and so they last much much longer and save you money in the long run.

  • Product Focus: All-in-One Moisturising Facial Rescue

    Our All-in-One Moisturing Facial Rescue helps regenerate, hydrate, plump, reduce wrinkes, add radiance, revitalise and lift. It has long been one of our best sellers and our customers tell us it gives their skin a new luminosity. It is ultra-rich in anti-oxidants and olive emollients. 

    Key ingredients: Wild Sea Fennel, Anise and Maca Root extracts work together with Avocado, Sweet Almond and Evening Primrose to give it a smooth, silky, serum-style formula. We take a look below in a little more detail at these star ingredients.

    ANISE EXTRACT

    A non-aggressive alternative to 'Botox' in expression lines. It has been shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

    Anise is an aromatic herb native to the Mediterranean area. The extract is made from tincture from star anise or anise. It is also well known for a strong licorice flavour, which comes from its seeds and is used for cooking and baking.

    WILD SEA FENNEL

    A highly effective sea algae proven to regenerate cells. It is rich in minerals and vitamins A, C and E. This gives it much documented anti-oxidant, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.

    MACA ROOT

    A stimulating extract produced by using a special bio-enzymatic process that has been shown to reduce wrinkles and improve skin's radiance and luminosity.

    Native to the Andes of Peru and Bolivia, it is used as a root vegetable as well as a medicinal herb. It has been an extremely important part of South American culture and during Spanish colonisation was even used as currency.

  • Winter Skincare Essentials

    Hopefully we will have a mild Autumn, but when the cold snap finally begins, the heating goes on and it's time re-look at our skincare routine. The change in humidity, the dryness caused by central heating and the extra time we spend indoors all mean that our skin can get chapped and dehydrated. This means it's more important than ever to keep your skin moisturised.

    Here are our Winter Skincare Essentials:

    THE ORIGINAL ORANGE SKIN FOOD

    Our multi-tasking superstar, this lovely subtle moisturiser is brilliant for moisturising and calming dry or stressed skin. It not only hydrates, but also nourishes, softens and soothes.
    Formulated with the fabulous extract of Lupin seed coatings that have been found to boost your collagen production, which diminishes with age. It achieved a 85% clinical trial for sagging jaw line, and 92% for increased elasticity and firmness!

    THE LIP PLUMPER

    Lips are one of the most noticeable victims of the cold weather. Formulated using beeswax it helps protect and hydrate your lips. Unlike a lot of other glosses, it’s not as sticky, so your hair won’t cling to your lips when it’s windy! It has the added bonus of a special protein ingredient that plumps lips naturally where they normally get cracks.

    THE HAND AND NAIL CUTICLE CREAM

    One of our favourites, the Hand Nail and Cuticle Cream not only hydrates the skin, but also softens and nourishes cuticles and dry or brittle nails. It has a non-greasy, clean formula, leaving your hands protected and feeling smooth.
    Also formulated with a special essential oil blend that evens skin tone and reduces age spots.
