Manuka OIl - the new darling of the beauty world...

So what does it do?
Manuka is a relatively new essential oil in western Aromatherapy, but the natives of New Zealand have known about its health properties for ages. It comes from the same family of trees as Tea Tree, Eucalyptus and Myrtle. According to folklore, Captain Cook used Manuka leaves in a tea to cure himself and his crew of scurvy.

Manuka Oil, not to be confused with Manuka Honey, is obtained from sustainably harvesting the leaves from the Manuka trees and extracting the oil through steam distillation. According to research, Manuka Oil is actually 100 times stronger than Manuka honey when compared gram for gram! It's also 30 times stronger than Tea Tree Oil! This incredible oil is an effective antibacterial, anti-fungal, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory ingredient. It is also completely vegan, as the production of this oil doesn't involve the use of bees.

As Manuka Oil is filled with antibacterial properties, it's perfect for keeping the skin clear and fighting off any bacterial growth. This bacteria is often the cause behind unpleasant skin conditions such as blemishes and breakouts! Manuka Oil also can be used as an effective way to treat damaged skin and scarring caused by acne, as it works to promote the regeneration of new skin.

Manuka oil is full of powerful cleansing properties which make it great for helping to keep the skin clean and clear. It can help to soothe skin and protect against the redness and irritation that comes with blemishes and breakouts.

If you have oily skin, you might be under the impression that you need to stay away from topical oils. That’s just not true! It’s a common misconception that you shouldn’t use oils on oil-prone skin. But really, if your skin is too dry it can cause your skin to overproduce oil, and that could actually lead to an overproduction of oil. Manuka essential oil helps balances the oil levels in your skin while it moisturises.

So what happens when you have a skin care product that contains
Manuka Oil AND Tea Tree Oil?
You get an incredibly powerful product to fight off and prevent bacteria, breakouts, balance and hydrate the skin and so much more.
This lightweight cleansing oil sweeps away impurities and lifts makeup while strengthening the skin’s delicate barrier. It harnesses antioxidant-rich manuka oil and the restorative properties of organic golden jojoba oil, clarifying tea tree oil, and nourishing castor oil for dewy, conditioned skin. Finished with uplifting notes of lemongrass, lavender, and geranium.
For all skin types including dry & sensitive.

Decoding the Cosmetic Ingredients Jargon

A clever marketing game is played in every skincare and cosmetics aisle in standard and in health stores. Phrases like "Active Ingredients", "Key Ingredients" and "Natural" are emblazoned across labels in bold print to distract us from investigating the small print of what is really in the product.

Autophagy... what is it?
Autophagy... what is it?

Autophagy, meaning “self-eating,” is an intracellular degradation process that allows cells to recycle damaged intracellular components to generate energy and provide building blocks to create new cellular structures. 
In simpler terms, it is a process that keeps your body's cells in proper balance by taking old or damaged parts of a cell and recycling them. These recycled bits and bobs are turned into amino acids that can be used for fuel and more.
