What does toxin and cruelty free mean?

Motivation Monday

Happy Monday, everyone! We have received customer feedback regarding confusion during the shopping process. You may shop online or at the supermarket, but a common theme is that there are products filled with vague terminology. Today, we will talk about what two of these terms mean: toxin free and cruelty free.

Toxin Free

A product is considered toxin free if its ingredients do not cause harm or health hazard according to scientific research. The ingredients have been delicately selected and are not known to be in any "black list".

Cruelty Free

In plain terms, cruelty free verifies that a product  was not tested on animals. In the United States, PETA is the main organization in charge of verifying this fact. A bunny logo with the text cruelty free underneath is the authentication from PETA. 

Have an amazing day!

Beauty sleep to vibrant skin


Motivation Monday

A good night's sleep is well recognized as a key to general health. It is also essential to healthy skin. Below are some key takeaways to this topic. 

  • Lack of sleep worsens skin conditions since the body re balances its hydration during this time. Therefore, getting between 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night is important to your skin care routine.  
  • A proper sleep cycle reduces the aging process and maintains your skin glowing. 
  • Be sure to maintain your sheets clean to avoid skin irritation. 

Keep rocking your Monday!

Benefits of olive oil


Olive oil has been used for centuries as a crucial culinary ingredient in different parts of the world. However, it also contains benefits for a radiant skin. Olive oil contains anti-oxidants and vitamins that promote healthier skin. Its anti-inflammatory property minimizes redness and helps remove acne scars. 

Be sure to use extra virgin olive olive oil in your skin care uses. This type of oil does not contain chemicals and is not pasteurized in production. 

 Keep using olive oil in your foods and incorporate it in your skin care routine!
