FIVE Amazing Organic Products for Organic September
As part of our support and appreciation for organic September; an annual campaign ran by the British Soil Association we thought we’d choose five of our favourite organic products from the Jersey shelves!
Why should we choose organic? Aside from being kinder to the environment (a big aside), organic beauty products are miracle workers that offer a cleaner side to beauty. Opting for organic products means fewer pesticides, more wildlife and more animal raised under the highest standards. According to the Soil Association, switching to just one organic item ‘can really help contribute to changing our food system for the better…” and in turn, our environment.
As the beauty industry and consumers choices in general move more towards ‘cleaner beauty’ featuring organic, sustainably sourced ingredients and kinder processes for the environment, organic product choices begin to widen. Many consumers are no longer happy to eat chemical laden foods so it’s important to note the ingredients we put on our bodies as well as in them.
Natural skincare offers an alternative source of powerfully active ingredients. Plant power is harnessed to create natural, sustainable products that are formulated to work and to work well. We chose five of our favourite organic products to replace or add to your routine....
Formulated for all skin types and using Hyaluronic Acid, Pomegrante and Rose, micellar micro molecules lift and remove dirt whilst hyaluronic acid locks water into the skin and organic pomegranate softens and protects. This micellic cleanser is delicately fragranced with organic rose water and leaves skin sparklingly clean and glowing.
Pomegranate extract helps to regulate cell turnover and strengthen the cell membrane, limiting water loss and free radical damage. The hyaluronic acid within helps to reduce wrinkles because of it’s hydration properties and also gives a youthful and improved skin tone appearance. Apply Liquid Crystal Micellic Cleanser to the face and neck using a cotton pad to remove light makeup or as a 2 in 1 cleanser and toner quick fix.
Not only does Evolve Organic Beauty offer natural, organic, hand blended products but they’ve also been created with 100% transparency. That means that every product has an individual label that tells you what is in the product and why, when the product was made and when it expires as well as who made the individual product. Freshness is guaranteed. Another Evolve Organic Beauty favourite is…
For those with normal to dry skin featuring a mix of organic Baobab and Vanilla, this luxurious cleansing balm nourishes, soothes and hydrates. Natural sugar extracts gently combine with water to turn into a creamy milk that rinses away clean leaving skin cleansed, calm and hydrated.
Baobab is well known for it’s amazing skin benefits - it has an extremely high concentration of Calcium and Vitamin C and also carries high levels of Protein and Vitamin A. Organic Baobab Oil nourishes, improves skin elasticity and helps to rejuvenate new skin cells and promote healing. It’s rich in antioxidants and protects the skin from free radical damage and therefore is a fantastic organic anti-ageing ingredient. The Vanilla also offers strong antioxidant properties and a sweet and soothing aroma to relax.
Gently massage onto dry face and neck, add warm water to form a light milk and rinse. A really nice organic option for cleansers.
CocoRoo Natural Skincare prides itself on their organic ingredients. Not only are their products 100% organic but they also feature extra-virgin, cold-pressed nut oils such as Coconut Oil (the main foundation) and pressed Macadamia Nut Oil. Total rejuvenation has five ingredients in total. Each works together to exfoliate, smooth, moisturise and rejuvenate. Ground Coffee Beans have been found to be one of the most effective exfoliators nature can provide and CocoRoo uses organic Arabica Coffee Beans - great for targeting cellulite, eczema, stretch marks and other skin concerns. Added to organic Sweet Almond Oil for a wonderful body scrub aroma, we think this is one organic product you can’t miss out of your bathroom repertoire.
Apply to face and body using circular motions and scrub as desired. Concentrating longer on problem areas and best left on skin for the duration of a shower and rinsed thoroughly at the end. Simple, radiant results and a delicious smelling organic must-have.
A brand new product perfect for those of you that exercise regularly. This one can be used in the bath, as a body oil or for a massage. A gentle but effective blend of organic Safflower, Jojoba and Rosehip oils nourish and replenish tired skin.
