Try not to let it sink in…..

I have talked a lot about the skin and how it is the largest organ of our body. It is subjected to a vast array of environmental substances all day and night- exposed to the elements, pollution, sunlight and drying effects of central heating in the Winter months as well as to toxic chemicals that hide in our skin care and beauty products. It is a staggering fact that it only takes 20 seconds for a substance to get absorbed into the skin and into the blood stream, so potentially this can have insurmountable beneficial effects to our health or devastatingly damaging ones. That is why I only use Organic Oils and High Grade Essential Oils in all my Eveksia Products- carefully researched and selected for their proven abilities to nurture, soothe, heal and protect as well as enhance our moods and emotional well-being.
So, what are these toxic chemicals present in everyday ‘beauty’ and skin care products? Why are they used? What can we look for as alternatives?
 
 
1. Formaldehyde
This is a common preservative, listed in many forms as seen in the image above. It is used to prevent bacterial growth, but it is a known carcinogenic- which means it has been linked to cancer, skin allergy reactions, and damage to the immune system.
Natural preservatives include Vitamin E which, as well as protecting skin cells from environmental damage such as UV and pollutants, also helps sustain the shelf life of skin and beauty products.
Eveksia creams contain Organic Coconut, Sunflower, Jojoba and Rosehip oils which are all great sources of Vitamin E. My Cleansers all contain Lemon Essential Oil which is known to be an very effective natural preservative.
2. SLSs and SLESs
These nasties are put into 80% of our personal care products, used primarily for their foaming properties. They are also known carcinogenics proven to be associated with issues such as kidney and respiratory damage. Far from being healing to the skin, they have been known to cause irritations and in some cases to even slow down the healing process of damaged skin cells.
It is not necessary to make a product foam up in order to be an effective cleanser.
 
3. Parabens
Again, these are used as preservatives which prevent the growth of bacteria. However, they contain oestrogen mimicking properties which has been thought to cause breast cancer. They have been identified in biopsy samples from women’s breast tumours. They are also thought to cause premature ageing and DNA damage.
 
4. Petroleum, Parafin and Mineral Oil
These are used to make products stay firm, such as nail polishes and conditioners. But when you consider they are able to dissolve paint, it brings it home how dangerous they are. They have been linked to respiratory issues, skin irritations and immune system damage as well as premature ageing.
 
5. Synthetic Fragrance
The ingredient listing of ‘fragrance’ can actually contain a myriad of unsavoury substances that by law, do not have to be listed. They are associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress, hormone disruption and skin irritations.
There is no need at all to be using these chemicals. Essential Oils, distilled from herbs and flowers, give us the best natural fragrances we could ask for!
So, here is my list of top 5, but of course there are so many others. Please keep visiting my Blogwhere I am posting recipe ideas for beauty and cosmetic products that you can make at home which do not contain any chemicals or nasties.
Here at Eveksia, it’s all 100% natural!

Introduction to my Eveksia Skin Care Products~ Part 1: Geranium & Bergamot Night Cream (with Harmonising Mood Food Blend)

27459471_10156135215674711_3589482542515832896_n

This series of Blogs will talk about my products one-by-one- giving you a deep insight into what ingredients I use, why I use them, and what they do for your skin and mood.

Geranium & Bergamot’s base recipe contains Organic Oils of Coconut, Safflower, Jojoba, Sunflower and Rose hip which are known to offer long-lasting holistic health benefits including skin cell repair, wrinkle reduction, easing of inflammations & irritations, deep hydration and the removal of toxins.

The Essential Oil fusion deeply hydrates dry skin while refreshing, toning and encouraging elasticity. Bergamot is renowned for increasing blood circulation to the skin and Geranium is known for easing the signs of wrinkles and ageing. Lavender is very widely used for the skin as it is thought to quickly heal skin issues such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, cold sores and blemishes. Other essential oils are used for their anti-septic properties which prevent bacteria build-up that causes infections. Vanilla and Frankincense are proven to have properties that work to prevent further damage to the skin.

This cream is especially effective for use at night as it contains a unique blend of essential oils that I call ‘mood food’. As you can see in the informative product description below, the essential oils used in this cream are known to help balance the emotion, ease stress and tension, and soothe the senses. Perfect to apply before bed! I would describe the aroma as ‘comfortingly floral with a hint of clean citrus’.

This fusion has been created after many months of my research into the aroma therapeutic qualities of essential oils and how they can help us to relax, induce feelings of happiness, calm anxiety and even energise our minds. Those are only a few natural mood enhancements we can enjoy! My range reflects a variety of these mood enhancing qualities and I will be posting more blogs covering my whole range, so please subscribe and get my latest blogs as they are posted.

Here is a review I received yesterday:

“I would like to recommend the geranium and bergamot night cream. It has a beautiful scent and makes your skin feel energised, fresh and healthy. It also gives a healthy balance to my skin which is beginning to need that extra care due to the inevitable aging process. The fact that all this comes naturally and ethically is essential for me.”

Introducing my new Eveksia Skin Care brand

~How it all began~

Have you ever really thought how important our skin is? It is the largest organ in the body and performs so many vital roles for our well-being both physically and emotionally. It wasn’t until I became a Vegan that I really started to think about what we absorb through our skin. It’s the same as eating food- we consume through our skin pores. What we apply, rub or massage in directly enters our bloodstream. When knowledge is gained into what the long ingredients lists on jars and bottles mean you realise it’s just a list of chemicals and more chemicals! Alarmingly, skin absorption allows ten times more chemicals to be consumed than in an oral dose, so our daily use of Cleansers, Body Washes, Shampoo and other products could potentially be very dangerous. 

I started by researching natural, organic oils that cleanse and moisturise the skin~ free of such chemicals as Parabens, Phythalates and synthetic fragrances that can cause cancer, irritations and even damage to the immune system. There are so many. Through my passion for Aromatherapy, I decided to then enhance the base carrier oils blend by adding special fusions of Essential Oils for specific skin issues such as eczema, wrinkles, irritations and very tired skin. As well as also smelling yummy, I have created synergies to feed emotions and mood~ those for energising, uplifting and relieving anxiety, as well as for relaxation, mental focus and clear thinking. So the Eveksia collection (‘wellness’ in Greek) is here; a holistic approach to healthy skin & mind. In the shop you will find Cleansers and Moisturisers for a range of skin issues which at the same time allow you to feel empowered and in control of your mood and emotions. 

There are NO Preservatives, Parabens, Animal Ingredients or Synthetic Chemicals in any of my products. I use Organic ingredients and High Grade Essential Oils. It is truly an Alchemy of Love for Humans, Animals and our Planet.

None of the ingredients (or end products) are tested on animals

All ingredients are Vegan 

It is truly an alchemy of love for Humans, Animals and our Planet.
