Super Foods in Skincare: Reishi Mushroom Hydrates Dry, Sensitive Skin

Reishi Mushrooms

Known as the “Mushroom of Immortality”, reishi has been embraced for its potent medicinal qualities for the last 2,000 years. 

Reishi contains a powerful supply of Beta-glucans, which can help  to calm dry, itchy skin. Beta-glucans are special sugars from mushrooms that have the ability to modulate the immune system. They are also capable of penetrating deeply through multiple layers of skin which means healing results in places other ingredients may not reach. 

Provide your dry, stressed and inflamed skin with penetrating hydration; add reishi mushrooms into your skincare routine.  Click to keep reading about the benefits of Reishi mushrooms.

The Truth About Animal Testing

The Truth about Animal Testing 


Estée Lauder, Mary Kay, M.A.C. Cosmetics, Aveeno, Kiehl’s and Covergirl are just a few of the popular, mainstream brands that still test their products on animals. 

Household products & cosmetics are regularly tested for their efficacy and safety. Unfortunately, bunnies, guinea pigs, and rats are commonly abused in order to complete these tests. Testing on animals is not only cruel, but it is also ineffective and unnecessary. Alternative methods of testing, such as testing on cell cultures or digital models, are often cheaper, quicker,  and more accurate. 

The needless violence of animal testing can be avoided. Hundreds of companies produce safe and effective products without harming animals in the process. As consumers, we can eliminate animal testing by choosing to buy only cruelty free products.

Are your cosmetics messing with your hormones?

You can find hormone altering chemicals littered throughout your home. The most common endocrine disruptors found in your cosmetics and perfumes are phthalates, which can absorb into the skin and move into the bloodstream. Phthalate exposure has been linked to various health concerns including thyroid issues, hormone changes, obesity, diabetes and lower sperm count. 

With the influx of research regarding endocrine disruptors, the need for conscious consumerism is crucial. By simply reading your cosmetic labels, you can help to limit your exposure to phthalates. 

Protect your health and enhance your skin by investing in clean, phthalate free beauty products.
