Our optician and pharmacist answer your top 5 questions about eye sensitivity and hypo-allergenic cosmetics

May 9th, 2014

If you have sensitive eyes, skin, dry eyes, blepharitis, Meibomian gland dysfunction or wear contact lenses, we have the answers and products in our NATorigin range you may be looking for. Compared to regular cosmetics, NATorigin can reduce the rate of appearance of eyelid debris, have a significantly lower impact on the lipid layer of tears and not obstruct the Meibomian glands.

This is achieved by a unique ultra-micronisation production process and an avoidance of ingredients known to cause sensitivity such as parabens, chrome and nickel.

1.) Why does the eye area require specialist care – why can’t you just use a normal cleanser on the eye area?

The skin around the eye is thinnest on the body and therefore more susceptible to minor damage, infection and sensitivity. Also, it is easily clogged by heavy formulations and prone to whiteheads as a result and separate eye make up removers are formulated to avoid this.

Allergy Awareness Week 2014 predicts hayfever hell

April 28th, 2014

It’s National Allergy Awareness Week from Monday 28th April to Sunday 4th May to help raise awareness of common allergies such as hayfever and their treatments.

Allergy UK has published an article about the rising rates of hay fever, its causes and how many people are not using their medication properly. This means they are struggling with symptoms such as sore, watery eyes, blocked and runny noses, sneezing, tiredness and an itchy throat. The article gives some really good advice tips on getting the best out of hayfever treatments. Maureen Jenkins, director of clinical services at Allergy UK, said: “We are urging people to check whether they are using their medication correctly rather than just soldiering on and ­prolonging their suffering.’

April 24th, 2014

On Monday 14th April, we headed down to Olympia, London for the first Natural Health Magazine Beauty Awards hosted by Natural & Organic Products Europe.

At the awards ceremony, we were thrilled to have won both the Best Lipstick  and Best Mascara Awards for our hypo-allergenic NATorigin lipstick and NATorigin mascara.

NATorigin hypo-allergenic natural and organic cosmetics have won Best Lipstick and Best Mascara at Natural Health Beauty Awards 2014

This is why the judging panel loved them so much last year -

‘We love the rich texture this lip colour offers. Gorgeous and creamy it may be, but you won’t need to reapply every five minutes – this fabulous pink stays firmly in place. It is formulated with orchid extract to give an extremely smooth finish you’ll love wearing.’

‘Turning lashes almost glossy is a trick we haven’t seen before! You can also build up without clogging for a more intense look. If you usually find mascara irritating, try this – you won’t feel as if you’re wearing any.’
