Switching from conventional products to organic and natural products can be an important decision for you and your skin. Organic Cosmetics are a totally different ball game compared conventional cosmetics; they differ in almost everything, the way to use them, the amount to use and many other things, so here are 5 tips to get the most out of your Organic Cosmetics:

1 Organic Cosmetics may take longer to get used to in terms of how you use the product. Let the product work for you, going organic means changing the way you use your products.

2 A little goes a long way, organic cosmetics are more concentrated and contain essential oils, which can be very powerful in small amounts.

3 When it comes down to shampoos, using organic shampoos can be a little trickier than using conventional shampoos due to the fact that conventional are full of chemicals and are easier to apply. Start by putting a little amount in your hand, transfer a bit to the other hand and spread through the hair before you start to massage it and use water to help it spread. It might take more time and a bit more effort to use organic shampoos but believe they are as effective as conventional and you hair will thank you.

4 Ditch the cotton wool and get yourself a few face cloths you will not only be helping yourself but the environment too. Take off your organic cleansers with a face cloth, this will give a little bit of exfoliation and better results from your products. Remember to change your face cloth every 2-3 days and your face cloth should be used only by you.

5 If you just switched from conventional to organic cosmetics, your skin could come up with pimples and spots, DON’T PANIC, this happens because your skin was addicted to the chemicals and by stop using them the skin will start to de-tox and cleanse itself, give it a month or so for you skin to settle and get used to natural products.

Hopefully this list will help get the most out your Organic cosmetics and Organic and Natural Skincare Products, if you have any questions feel free to contact us at The Organic

Ever wondered what acne is and what causes it? Well we have the answers
for you:

Acne is a common inflammatory disorder of sebaceous glands.  These glands produce oil, which can get trapped as it travels to the skin’s surface, this is where the problem begins as the pores then become clogged.

The areas most often affected are the chest, shoulders, back and the face. It tends to be in these areas because they have larger oil producing glands than other areas of the body.

The hallmarks of Acne are spots and skin eruptions such as blackheads (with
papules), white heads (pustules), raised red blemishes with semi-solid centres and localised bacterial infection beneath the skin’s surface.

So what causes you to have acne?

- Acne can be triggered by a response of the skin to levels of male hormones ‘androgens’ (masculinising hormones present in men and women). These hormones control how much oil or sebum is secreted from the sebaceous glands.
- In women menstrual periods or pregnancy can create acne-producing hormonal imbalances.
- Emotional stress can make the problem worse by triggering the body’s adrenal glands to become overactive which in turn boosts sebum production.
- Certain medications can affect hormonal levels like contraceptives and steroids.
- Bad digestion due to lack of friendly bacteria because of a disturbance to the natural balance of flora in the gut.
- Toxins in the body, caused by a variety of things including constipation, bacterial or yeast over growth (candida in the gut) or food sensitivity.

To help prevent acne you should keep your skin clean and maintain a level of moisture and free from bacteria that might get into a clogged pore. only retails brands that are all natural, please see our
Acne info page for our recommended products. also retails two totally natural make-up brands Living Nature and suki color.

It is a fact that the FDA does not require companies to get products tested for safety, and doesn’t review or approve cosmetics before you buy them. The company is in fact the decider when it comes to the safety of a beauty product.

Although companies are not forced to test beauty products, they do have to list ingredients on product labels. On many beauty products you’ll find the ingredient ‘squalene’ which is oil used to soften hair and skin.

The ingredient ‘squalene’ can be sourced in two ways, either squeezed out of livers of deep-sea sharks or made naturally from rice or wheat.

You’d think the obvious choice would be to go natural, but that wasn’t the thinking of Unilever, who were taking the ingredient from Sharks.

Thanks to public pressure on the company, Unilever have announced that they are going to switch to the natural source of ‘squalene’ that it adds to Dove and other Unilever brands.

The even more disturbing thing is that Unilever’s choices are in full compliance with federal cosmetic standards, who allow companies to use ingredients synthesized from pretty much anything.

Research has found that companies even use chemicals in their products that can be very harmful to its consumers. doesn’t believe in putting anything other than pure, natural, non-harmful and organic ingredients into cosmetics and beauty products.  Thats why we only retail brands that follow this strict criteria.

Nobody wants to go around smelling like a compost heap (or be around someone who does), but what price do you pay for keeping shower-fresh all day long?

This old question was recently resurrected when UK researchers highlighted the potential risks associated with the preservatives parahydroxybenzoic acids, or parabens, in deodorants. (more…)

The epidermis is about 0.1 to 0.2 mm thick and comprises four distinct layers. (more…)
