National Eczema Week – do you need special skincare and make-up?

September 15th, 2015

If you have eczema on your face or around your eyes, it can be hard to keep on top of dry skin, break outs, irritations and blotches. NATorigin skincare and cosmetics are designed for ultra sensitive skin and can help in a number of ways when compared to hypo-allergenic products;

NATorigin hypo-allergenic natural and organic skincare and cosmetics for sensitive skin
  • the ingredients are chosen for their natural origin and ability to strengthen the skin’s defences from external irritants
  • each formulation is carefully prepared following the principles of bio-inertia to have no adverse effect on skin, eyes or contact lenses
  • the finely milled powders are less likely to block pores and cause spots in oily areas
  • if the beauty products come into contact with broken skin, their fine particle size and allergy-friendly product award status reduces the chance of a reaction

Organic Beauty Week 2015

September 15th, 2015

From 14th-21st September it’s Organic Beauty Week. Organised by The Soil Association who certify organic goods in the UK, they aim to raise awareness of the benefits of switching to an organic lifestyle. By making small changes using their suggestions, they hope to inform and help consumers to achieve this.

This year, they are focusing on the quality of organic goods and their labelling to highlight a practice known as ‘greenwashing’ where items are labelled organic when they only contain a small amount of organic raw material, or in some cases none at all. They are launching a Campaign for Clarity to let consumers know that although Trading Standards laws apply, unlike food, beauty products have no organic legal standard to adhere to.

How NATorigin natural beauty helped my Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.

April 17th, 2015

Hi I’m Michelle, a pharmacist of 22 years and owner of Butterflies Healthcare.

In 1990, having suffered for some time, I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). With little research on PCOS available my GP was limited in what help they could offer so I turned to and successfully treated my illness using natural remedies (which I continue to take to this day) and detoxifying my lifestyle.  I remain passionate about natural beauty since I developed sensitive skin myself as a result of my hormonal imbalance.

Why do consumers switch to natural & organic beauty products?

March 18th, 2015

Everyone switches to natural products for a reason.

For me it was a combination of battling with my sensitive skin, treating my polycystic ovary syndrome, my children’s eczema and weaning my son that first raised my interest in natural and organic products.

Also, through my work as a pharmacist, I saw various illnesses on a daily basis. Short illnesses, chronic and debilitating illnesses and unfortunately fatal ones including cancer.
