Of all the organs in your body, the skin is the largest. It is also one of the most important.
Your skin covers your entire body and has a surface area of about two square metres. Its depth and texture change from one part of your body to the next, depending on the type of protection and support it needs to provide. For instance, while the skin covering your eyelids is only 0.5mm thick, the skin on the soles of your feet is much sturdier at 4mm.
In total, your skin accounts for around 16 per cent of your body weight.
Many people don’t realise the effects of chemicals found in mass-produced skincare products. Many of today’s skincare complaints and sensitivity can actually be caused, and certainly exacerbated by the chemicals we apply to our skin every day.
Up to 60% of what we put on our skin ends up being absorbed in the body. Some chemicals remain stored in the body for several months or even years before they are completely eliminated. We take the same approach to skin & hair care as we would to a healthy diet. Creating products that are filled with Certified Organics & Natural Ingredients that are almost good enough to eat! You wouldn’t eat harsh chemicals or sulphates, so why put them on to your skin?
