Our skin is our largest organ and absorbs a lot of what we put on it. Just think of nicotine patches or hormone patches.
Did you know that the majority of skincare products available in stores contain harmful ingredients which are absorbed into our blood stream within SECONDS?
I was horrified to read that in 2005, the Environmental Working Group published two studies that found toxic chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of newborn babies. 'They screened for more than 400 chemicals, and incredibly 287 toxins were detected within the umbilical cord blood of these newborns. Of these 287 chemicals, 217 were neurotoxins, and 208 are known to damage growth development or cause birth defects.'
Other tests reveal that adolescent girls are being contaminated with harmful chemicals that are commonly used in skincare and cosmetics. In blood and urine samples taken from girls between the ages of 14-19 EWG detected 16 chemicals which have potential health effects including cancer and hormone disruption.
I don't know about you, but I find this rather worrying.
Which is why I began searching for a SAFE and toxin-free brand. I watch what I eat, so why not pay the same attention to what I put on my skin?
If you're looking for a non-toxic, award-winning, planet-friendly, vegan skincare brand, that REALLY DOESACTUALLY WORK, look no further, because this is special! I've honestly never come across skincare and haircare quite like this! I'm so happy to be associated with this certified CarbonNeutral® and ethically accredited company because the products do what they say, without harming us, our animals, or our planet.
The skincare and haircare range is made freshly every day by the 'Beauty Chefs' in Surrey, England, using fresh, premium, natural ingredients like nourishing seed butters, juicy fruit extracts and aromatic essential oils. The creams and serums are truly gorgeous!
Always striving to be at the forefront of natural ingredient research, the formulations are supercharged with innovative ingredients such as bio-retinol and plant ceramides, embracing the latest green technologies! (The Skin Dream night cream is simply amaaazing! And the Smoothing Cleanser...and the Super Greens...I could go on and on!) They have also won over 100 prestigious awards to date!
Before discovering Tropic, I had always tried to use 'natural' products, but either reacted badly to them or they simply didn't make any difference whatsoever to my skin. After a while you soon get tired of throwing money down the drain, don't you?! As for natural hair products, I couldn't find anything toxin-free that freed me of 'bad hair days' and thanks to apps such as THINK DIRTY I soon realised that the word 'natural' can be very vague indeed!
Then I met Tropic. Hello younger looking skin and better hair!
I've been using these products for a while now and have noticed definite improvements in my skin and hair. For this reason, plus the aforementioned above (I really do care about our planet and our animals), I decided to become a Tropic Skincare Ambassador and have my own shop. People are always asking me what I use on my skin and now I can show them!
