Going all natural is one of the best things you can do for your body this summer! You watch what you eat, work out, and are sure not to forget to wear sunscreen but products you apply directly to your skin go straight into your blood stream. Many companies claim to be organic and all natural but you can’t believe everything you read.
We decided to make it really simple by carrying only lines that are actually organic and made from pure, natural ingredients. Another way to keep it simple is by using products with simple ingredients that are 100% non-toxic. We’ve put together a list of the five ingredients that will dramatically change your skin for better, the natural way.
The first ingredient we chose was honey. The medicinal use of honey goes back as far as the Egyptians. It is most celebrated for its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It has also been known to repair tissue damaged by infection and it’s just as healing on the outside as it is on the inside. Honey-based moisture serum seals in moisture and brings rich color back to tired feet. It’s been called the Instant Pedicure. The finest of moisturizing elements have been incorporated from genuine honey, and aloe leaf juice to pineapple and papaya fruit extracts. It even includes the cutest little application brush!
Paraben & Sulfate Free
The next ingredient is brown sugar. While most of us are used to putting this in our oatmeal, it actually makes a fantastic scrub! This scrub eliminates dry, flaky skin to leave lips ridiculously soft and supple. It is paired with jojoba and grape seed oil, creating the perfect conditioner and the softest set of lips.
Lavender is the most delicious smelling herb and beautiful to look at. 80 Acres Lavender body care line includes a body balm, olive oil soap, body oil, salt scrub, lotion, and soy candle. The main component of the product line is olive oil derived from the McEvoy Ranch’s acres of olive orchards which yield an organic, extra virgin olive oil of unparalleled quality. The rich, luxurious and moisturizing products are infused with vitamin-rich plant extracts and botanicals, scented with the essential oils of lavender, ylang ylang, lemon and lime, evoking the colorful hillsides in full bloom around the ranch.
Their entire body care line is free of parabens and phthalates and is never tested on animals.
Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant that prevents premature aging. This lightweight oil contains a potent combination of natural, organic ingredients, containing only the finest exotic oils and rare herbal extracts. Buriti oil has recently been found to filter and absorb cancer-causing UV rays from the sun. All the herbal extracts are made in-house exclusively for RMS beauty. Simply apply to clean skin once per day and you will feel the difference in your skin.
Vitamin E oil prevents the formation of wrinkles by blocking free radical damage. It treats wrinkles by boosting collagen production, a connective tissue that keeps skin elastic. Vitamin E oil also treats wrinkles by supporting new skin cell growth and speeding up cell regeneration. It is also a fantastic remedy for brown spots, dry cuticles, and can even lessen the appearance of scars.
This product is certified organic.
Olive Oil Scrub
What is important is what we do not put into our scrubs. This charcoal scrub contains no preservatives, dyes, unnecessary fillers or chemicals of any kind leaving you with a pure, all natural cleanser. Made right here in Charleston, this scrub is the one to beat.
