Acid doesn't necessarily scream "beneficial for the skin", or "au naturale" right?! Hyaluronic acid is an ingredient you may have heard of or seen listed on your natural skincare products, but what exactly is it and is it natural? Read on to find out why this acid might actually be a game changer for your skincare regime!

WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that can be found in the connective tissues of the body. It is thick and gel like and, when used in skincare products, usually comes from plants or through organic fermentation. As we age the hyaluronic acid decreases in the body which means having this acid in your skincare regime can really boost the appearance and hydration of your skin! Pretty cool right?!

BENEFITS?
  • Can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water so amazing for moisturising the skin
  • Provides a protective barrier for the skin
  • Due its natural occurrence in the body is unlikely to cause any irritation or allergic reaction
  • Brightens complexion by boosting moisture in the skin
  • Can help to improve skin texture and tone by plumping skin with hydration
  • Promotes collagen synthesis

Salt is an incredibly rich source of minerals and an ingredient that has probably snuck into many of your favourite au naturale skincare products.  But why? There a number of different types of salts, each with their own unique benefits which can support skin health in a variety of ways. Here are some of the ways salt can support healthy skin and the best ways to soak up the salty benefits.

What Salts Are We Referring To?

Mineral salts such as Dead Sea salt or Pink Himalayan salts are rich in magnesium and other minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium, zinc, selenium and iodine.  Magnesium is a mineral many people are deficient in and it is essential for nervous system health and relaxation. Water molecules are attracted to sodium and chloride meaning these salts can support skin hydration by binding with water and delivering moisture to skin cells.

Benefits?
  • Sea salt is naturally anti-inflammatory and antibiotic so great for use on inflamed skin conditions, cuts or blemishes.
  • Salt can also promote detoxification in the body by attracting toxins and drawing them out of the skin and from deeper in the body (a reason Epsom salt baths are so highly touted!)
  • Exfoliation to promote circulation, skin regeneration and to improve the overall appearance of skin
  • Supports hydration of skin cells
  • Rich in magnesium to promote relaxation and decrease tension, aches and pains in the body
  • Salt can also help to cleanse and deeply clean the skin to balance sebum production and help reduce breakouts
  • As a natural disinfectant, salt is often used in au naturale toothpastes as well to kill any bugs in the mouth and as a gentle abrasive to clean teeth
 Our Salty Favourites... Eco Tan Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub

$34.95

This scrub uses Pink Himalayan Salt to gently buff away dead skin cells while also using Coconut Oil and Macadamia Oil to leave skin moisturised and hydrated.

As we mature, our bodies become less efficient in producing collagen meaning its ability to bounce back and regenerate lessens and the prominence of lifelines and free radical damage increases. We think there is nothing more beautiful (or more a privilege) than growing to a ripe old age, however we also believe that we can slow the "signs" of ageing by choosing to live a healthy holistic lifestyle, including the products we allow our skin to absorb!

We’ve come to find some beautiful natural makeup products that dry and/or maturing skin will love! These products focus on bringing a radiant glow to the face and avoid any heavy powders or drying ingredients that may settle into fine lines on the face while working to cover, rather than enhance, the skin.

In ancient Indian Ayurvedic practice copper water vessels are used to maintain optimal health. Copper drink bottles and homewares are becoming quite the trend not only for looking amazing but for the health benefits they can bring.

Why Copper?

Ayurveda focuses on the balancing of doshas within the body. Each person has a distinct combination of vata, kapha and pitta doshas, which must be kept in balance to experience optimum health. Copper drink bottles allow copper to leach into the water leaving it positively charged and dosha balancing. Copper is an essential trace mineral that cannot be produced by the body and which has some seriously great health benefits. 

Benefits...
  • Cleanse and detox the liver
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Supports digestive health
  • Improves skin health
  • Boosts melanin production
  • Kills harmful bacteria
  • Slows down ageing
  • Supports cardiovascular health

Organic certification is something increasingly important to look out for with many mainstream brands and products using words like “natural” and “organic” to jump on the green bandwagon. But can they make those claims without actually being organic? The sad truth is, yes they can. The beauty industry remains unregulated meaning brands can put whatever ingredients they like into a product and say anything about the product as there is NO GOVERNING BODY to question these claims. This is why organic certification is SO important.

Australian Certified Organic is a certification board that trace all ingredients back to their place of origin. This means checking that ingredients and products contain no:

  • Synthetic colouring agents
  • Synthetic fragrances/parfums
  • Ethoxylated ingredients
  • Silicones
  • Paraffin
  • Petroleum derived products
  • GMO
  • Petrochemicals
  • Animal testing
  • Preservatives not derived from natural sources

The ACO’s process for certification is extensive and rigorous explained in detail here to ensure that any product with an ACO certification is truly organic.

September is Organic Awareness Month with the mission of educating and raising awareness about the importance of certification and truly understanding what ingredients are in our products and where they come from.

TRUSTED PRODUCTS

Here is a list of all ACO Certified Organic cosmetics brands that you can trust, we highly recommend supporting these brands for their commitment to only producing the highest quality, genuinely organic products.

It’s that time of the year again when pesky colds and flu start spreading and our immune systems might need an extra hand in protecting us against these nasties to ensure we are feeling our best throughout the winter season. There are a number of steps I take year round to support my body's immune and detoxification systems, depending on what I personally need at any given time, but here are just a few of my staples that I find are an amazing support, especially throughout winter.

 

HerbsTurmeric

It’s no secret that Turmeric is a favourite of mine, we have a whole blog post on its wonderful benefits HERE Turmeric is anti-inflammatory and rich in antioxidants to support your body in preventing and overcoming infection. Simply make a tea from freshly chopped Turmeric or use Turmeric powder in your morning bulletproof or smoothie or soups and curries for an added immunity boost. 

Ginger

Ginger aids digestion, relieves nausea, is anti-inflammatory and great for the immune system.  I love chopping fresh, organic ginger in boiling water for a morning boost in the winter.

Essential OilsOregano

IMAGE SOURCE: PINTEREST

Oil of Oregano can greatly support respiratory illness and is also anti-fungal and rich in antioxidants to support immunity. A few drops of this oil taken daily throughout the winter will do your immune system a world of good.
