How many products do you use on your body in a day? Here are our top tips to simplify your beauty regime – keeping it simple!
Let’s face it, there’s not enough hours in the day so we multi-task all day, every day. Here’s some tips to multi-task your daily beauty regime with products in our range and save time and money on products.
How many personal care products do you use in a day?
According to a reported survey by EWG of 2300 people, on average, respondents use nine products daily. These contain 126 unique ingredients. One man in 100 and fully 25 percent of women surveyed apply 15 or more products each day.
Your grooming ritual probably includes shampoo, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, hair conditioner, lip balm, sunscreen, body lotion, shaving products if you’re a man, and makeup if you are a woman.
And what about your children? Sunscreen, nappy cream, shampoo and lotion are common kids’ products.
According to EWG, Personal care products are manufactured with 10,500 unique chemical ingredients, some of which are known or suspected carcinogens, toxic to the reproductive system or known to disrupt the endocrine system. Though some companies make products that are safe to eat, others choose to use dangerous ingredients like coal tar and formaldehyde, both human carcinogens, and lead acetate, a developmental toxin.
“Cosmetic ingredients do not remain on the surface of the skin. They are designed to penetrate, and they do. Scientists have found many common cosmetic ingredients in human tissues, including phthalates in urine, preservatives called parabens in breast tumor tissue and persistent fragrance components in human fat. Do the concentrations at which they are typically found pose risks? For the most part, those studies have not been done. But a small but growing number of studies serve as scientific red flags (Swan 2005, Sathyanarayana 2008, Swan 2010).”

With this in mind, we are committed to producing products that do not contain any known nasties and using ingredients that are natural or naturally derived and certified for use in natural cosmetics.
We believe in keeping your regime as simple and as natural as possible…by using clean products or simple ingredients on their own – for instance coconut oil and multi-tasking your products where possible.
Some of our products are perfect for multi-use including our Coconut Body Balm which can be used as an all over skin treatment to soften and nourish. It can also be used for:
-adding glow to cheeks and lips
-removing make-up, and
-taming frizzy hair ends
