When I first found out that, despite being tested for safety, some cosmetic ingredients have been linked to cancer and hormonal imbalances, I was shocked. I pledged never to put on my skin anything that wasn’t 100% natural. However, despite finding natural skincare products, I still wasn’t convinced that they were the best option for my skin. Because, is a cosmetic made out of only 10% active ingredients and 90% water, preservatives, stabilisers and texture enhancers (even if there are of natural origin) really going to be effective?
Looking for 100% plant based alternative to conventional skincare I became fascinated with plant oils and their ability to moisturise, rejuvenate and nourish the skin. I started experimenting with Neem and Tamanu Oils. I was amazed how quickly the oils absorbed. My skin was incredibly soft and first time since at least a decade I did not have to use a face powder every few hours to mattify. This was one of the most exciting times in my life.
