I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN AND SOMETIMES SUFFER FROM ALLERGIES. ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SUITABLE?

Start with the basics - a cleanser and moisturizer. Make the change gradually

Avoid being overzealous and excited and using too many products all at once

All ingredients are generally safe for all skin types, but some people may still have individual allergies to certain plant botanicals. The same holds true for any cosmetic or food ingredient. If you have sensitive skin, buy samples and test on the inside of your arm by placing a small amount of product on your arm, covering with elastoplast and leaving overnight. If there is no reaction, you are generally good to go!

I HAVE AN ALLERGY TO SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCES AND PERFUMES?

We only use pure essential oils that have been chosen for their medicinal and therapeutic qualities on the skin.

ARE ESSENTIAL OILS CONTRAINDICATED?

Some citrus oils are photosensitising when used in direct sunlight. It is advisable that certain oils are avoided during pregnancy, especially during the 1st trimester. We do not consider our blends to be contraindicated as they are used synergistically and in insufficient quantities. If uncertain, please check with your health practitioner first and read our disclaimer.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE A DIFFERENCE IN MY SKIN?

Herbal beauty care products have a balancing, detoxifying effect which is a long-term program with ongoing results. Within in two weeks you should notice a visible difference and within six weeks you should notice a change in the texture, feel and overall health of your skin.

Plant based ingredient have properties like antioxidants, carotenoids, flavonoids, polyphenols, herbal extracts, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids that encourage the skin to regenerate, hydrate, tone, stimulate, heal, nourish, relax, and tighten.

To reach the optimal goal of clear, radiant skin you'll need to balance your internal system through a well-balanced, nutritional program based on unprocessed, whole foods.

WHY SHOULD I AVOID CHEMICALS IN SKIN CARE PRODUCTS?

Your skin is extremely permeable. It transpires as well as absorbs, especially leave-on products like facial creams, hair dyes and make-up. One scientific study showed that 13% of the cosmetic preservative butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) and 49% of the carcinogenic pesticide, DDT (found in cosmetics containing lanolin) is absorbed through the skin.

Exposure to small amounts of various toxins everyday accumulate in the tissues and organs of your body. Recent scientific studies show that a lot of chemicals are toxic even at very low doses. Some chemicals may be the culprits of the infertility epidemic. If you're concerned about your hormones and infertility, you're better off avoiding unnecessary chemicals.  If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, your baby is more susceptible to the chemicals you place on your body.

DO NATURAL INGREDIENTS REALLY WORK?

Plant based cosmetics work in the same way that nutrients work in food. Our bodies will absorb what they require. Antioxidants, polyphenols, flavonoids and vitamins assist with skin maintenance and cellular regeneration and can act as free radical deterrents creating a sustainable impact upon the entire organism.

The human organism recognises and readily assimilates active ingredients from plant cells in an integrated and proportional way. They are absorbed, rather than treated as synthetic and unrecognisable foreign bodies that end up being stored. The skin cells receive a balanced source of energy from plants so that every component is complementary to the whole improving cell vitality.

PRODUCT VARIATION

Our products are handcrafted as opposed to mass produced. Because the ingredients are organic and natural in origin, just like a good bottle of wine that has seasonal variations, colour and consistency may vary slightly from batch to batch.

WHY SHOULD I MAKE THE SWITCH?

The long term effects of using chemicals and their combinations is unquantifiable and impossible to define. More people are experiencing allergies and sensitivities and terminal illnesses as a direct result of environmental pollutants. It all adds up! The more we can minimise exposure to chemicals and toxins the better it is for our health and wellbeing.

The manufacturing of chemicals that are found in most products create further pollutants and environmental damage. By choosing organic you can help alleviate your impact and environmental footprint.

WHAT OUR UNIQUENESS?

Bioactive native Indian ingredients to increase the potency and viability of the formulas. By enhancing the efficacy of the products maximum benefit and results are ensured.

Indian have been using native herbs and their extracts for thousands of years. Women sustainably harvest the native plant extracts as a communal incentive and they are purchased under a fair trade agreement.
