The skin is the largest organ of the body and, since the skin is porous and will absorb what is applied to it, the ingredients in your skin care regimen and makeup will eventually have an affect on the other organs and tissues in your body when they reach the blood stream (think hormone or nicotine patches).
Studies by Mount Sinai School of Medicine found an average of 91 industrial compounds, pollutants and other chemicals in the blood and urine of volunteers. Some of these dangerous chemicals have been found by pathologists in breast cancer tumors and traced back to beauty products. We believe, for these reasons, that only the finest raw natural materials nature can give us should be acceptable for the care and beautification of our skin.
Along with the build up of toxins in our system, oxidative stress plays a major role in speeding up the aging process. Free radicals eat away at healthy tissue and cause premature aging of the skin, arteries and other systems of the body. An easy way to visualize this is to imagine free radicals like a radical person. Being free, they do whatever they want and cause a lot of trouble, which usually escalates to causing damage. These free radicals attach to cell walls and start to oxidize (picture it as rust). Anti-oxidants stop oxidization and help restore the tissues to healthy state they were in prior to the free radical attack.
Antioxidants can come from the compounds of numerous plants, fruits and vegetables. Scientists have found that an enzyme called Sodium Oxide Dismutase (or S.O.D.) kills free radicals and renews the body’s ability to fight off destruction. Our skin care products contain potent antioxidants, such as Vitamins A, C and E, red Rooibos tea from South Africa, white and green tea, among others. To complete our radically effective formulations, we have infused our products with strategically blended therapeutic grade essential oils to further support the body’s ability to repair and renew skin, as well as improve emotional and mental well-being.
The fact that our skin care products are all natural is not enough for us. Did you know that the word “natural” can be applied to any product as long as 1% of the ingredients are obtained from nature. Even though the ingredients in a skin care regimen may be natural, the ingredients may have been sprayed with chemicals and pesticides when they were grown or irradiated before distribution. Environmental toxins absorb into the skin like any other chemical would.
If the ingredient was treated with one of these toxins, the residue would undoubtedly make it’s way into our skin. The only way to be sure these contaminants and toxins are not making their way into a product is to use organic ingredients (especially for the ingredients known to be contaminated regularly – like soy or corn). That’s why we at Eve Organics feel so strongly about using only the finest organic ingredients in our products.
Instead of masking skin conditions, organic skin care products work with the body’s ability to heal itself. The transition to the organic way of life is a process, not about perfection. Our bodies deserve it.
When you move from a non-organic range to a certified organic one your skin will need to assimilate and process any remaining chemicals remaining from your old skincare. Your body will naturally detoxify itself by getting rid of these toxins.
We recommend that you support your skin during this detoxification by ensuring you drink plenty of water and cleansing, toning and moisturising your face regularly. Keep in mind it may take up to a month for your skin to fully detoxify from your old skincare.
Every ingredient that we include in our products is there for a specific therapeutic reason. We do not use fillers of any kind, meaning that almost every ingredient in our products is an “active” ingredient. This results in pure, highly concentrated, and effective formulas that are a rarity in the skincare and cosmetics world today. All of our products have an emphasis on organic, high quality, RESULTS DRIVEN ingredients.
In addition to creating products that give you noticeable results, we also create our products with personal rejuvenation and a little indulgence in mind. We believe that daily bathing and skincare rituals should be enjoyable to intoxicating scents and luxurious textures, we truly want you to love your skincare and bathing routines.
