Beauty tip no.1: After-sun care is essential if you’d like your healthy complexion to keep on glowing. 100% pure organic plant oils are a must! They are like ‘food for the skin’, providing vitamins, mineral and essential fatty acids that help to hydrate, nourish and protect your delicate and beautiful body.
Beauty tip no.2: Due to the golden hue of seabuckthorn oil, this skin loving ingredient is ideal as a subtle skin bronzer, whilst also containing a natural SPF component. Furthermore, seabuckthorn is renowned for its ability to prevent the ageing process due to the high levels of vitamins E and A, which are both essential for youthful, supple, healthy skin. These are the vitamins said to destroy free radicals, giving your skin the gleam and glow that it deserves.
Beauty tip no.3: One way to maintain that healthy glow all year round is to apply a self tan. When choosing a “fake tan”, please remember to choose a natural brand, and avoid those with DHA (dihydroxyacetone). Even the naturally-derived DHA has always been questionable. When applied to the skin it has been found to generate high amounts of free radical damage, as well as inhibiting the production of vitamin D. There are studies that link use of DHA with irritation to the skin. DHA is found in various organic and natural self-tanners, and irrespective of whether it sourced from a natural source or not, DHA is still DHA, and with it comes the risks. DHA is also the culprit for causing that orange tone and streaky effect.
Beauty tip no.4: with all that wear and tear over the summer, remember your hair needs a little TLC too. Once a week apply a 100% natural and organic hair treatment to your hair and scalp for a healthy shine, and to counteract the consequences of modern day living.
Maintaining your summer glow all year round is easy when you have these natural, organic, vegan must-haves in your beauty cabinet.

Our brand and product selection is based on thorough research, based on 16+ years of industry experience. If we are not 100% convinced that an ingredient is safe, we won’t stock the product. ‘Natural’ and ‘organic’ products and online shops are becoming more prevalent these days. Whilst this is great, it also is rather confusing, as many ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ brands out there contain toxic and harmful ingredients that sound ‘natural’ or ‘naturally-derived’ but are indeed irritating to the skin and internal organs. If you are unsure about any ingredient, product or brand, please don’t hesitate to get in touch in the comment box below.
