One of the things that make us unique is the way we use our ingredients and preservative mix.
For one, we let the natural acids produced by oxidation act as a preservative to keep the bio-active function of the formula working. This means the product can keep for years – making it far more sustainable than your average skincare product.
Anyway, here is the gist about what you need to know about our key ingredients.
This stuff has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties though this is not why we use it. Honey has natural moisturising (humectant) and exfoliating properties which help skin to remain more resistant to damage.
This stuff does everything.
It forms a fine protective film which both protects, moisturises and gently exfoliates skin. Not only is it anti inflammatory ; it calms and softens skin too.
Hibiscus contains its weight in gold of vitamin C. This in addition to its toning effect helps it work with all the other ingredients to balance and keep skin and hair smooth and shiny.
Doesn’t sound like a wonder ingredient, but a little certainly goes a long way. The lactic acid in milk works together with the proteins to exfoliate and soften skin. Fermented style formulations work to break down complex proteins into easier absorbed poly peptides and simpler amines to help restructure damaged skin.
Herbs like thyme, oregano, wormwood and mint boosts skin immunity, giving it well deserved protection and reducing inflammation.
The holy grail of PH balanced skincare. Citric acid helps to reduce alkalinity and acts as both an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and an antioxidant.
What’s not to like.
Who doesn’t want to see Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae portray groundbreaking women who worked as mathematicians and engineers for NASA in the 1960s? Spencer told the New York Times, “This is a female-driven movie about contributions that women really made, to our world, not just our society. That’s a big statement.” Check out the […]
I love the idea.
Michael Babwahsingh embraces crappy drawings: “And if you’re afraid your drawings don’t look like the stuff you see online or in fancy books or that people will make fun if they see them, who cares? All that matters is that your drawings make sense to you….”
While not a skincare concern, AI is topical right now.
Skincare devices like Wayskin may or may not be compatible with Artificial Intelligence in the way that Big Data firms use it right now. This story cuts to right to the heart of some of the issues raised over the years about its use.
Can AI be humane, or will we run the risk of being over run by bots?
Roman’s bot offers us a clue.
When Roman Mazurenko died, his friend Eugenia Kuyda created a digital monument to him: an artificially intelligent bot that could “speak” as Roman using thousands of lines of texts sent to friends and family.
