  • The Simple Way Of Telling Whether Something Is “Organic”, “Natural” or “Certified Organic”

    12th March 2015

    There is a huge misrepresentation in relation to the use of the word “organic” and even “natural”. Sadly a company can claim something is “organic” or “natural” if it contains one natural or “organic” ingredient, yet it may contain literally thousands of chemicals.

    The only way a product is free from the TEAs, DEAs, MEA’s, Phthalates, Obesogens (chemicals that make your fat cells multiply) Sulfates, Glycols, Parabens, Synthetic and Artificial ingredients, Ethoxylates, Formaldehyde and Formaldehyde derivatives if is it is “Certified Organic”.

    Research is showing that health issues from these chemicals include infertility, skin rashes, cancer, learning disabilities, birth defects and reproductive problems. According to a report by Dr. Sarah Lantz of the Queensland University, children are capable of absorbing 40-50% more chemicals than adults therefore putting them at greater risk for health issues later in life. Therefore it is vitally important to minimise any exposure for children and babies, even in utero. One of the quickest ways a women detoxes is by having a baby, the second fastest is through breast-feeding. And yes, breast-feeding is the absolute best thing for our babies, but the importance of cleansing and detoxing our bodies prior to conception is becoming increasingly apparent as more and more researchers are speaking out as to their concerns about the impact of our everyday chemicals on our babies and their future. Some have even gone so far as to say we are the only species on this planet actively contributing to our own extinction!

    How do you tell if something is “Certified Organic” – it must contain a recognised certification logo and it will actually say Certified Organic on the label.

    Many people think ‘organic produce’ and believe it is just about the things that are ‘added’ to the process that defines organic, it is not until prompted that the penny drops that it’s also about what is ‘missing’ with certified organic produce – that being pesticides, herbicides and toxic synthetic chemicals. It is only then that organic & certified organic becomes meaningful.

    If we take the cosmetic industry as an example The Australian Certified Organics (ACO) has produced a criteria against which certified organic products are assessed. When you review the criteria or Certified and Natural, it is easy to see the differences. Amongst the difference Natural allows ingredients to be sources from genetically modified plants.

    How To: Use Luxurious Rosehip Oil

    There are three different ways to apply your Luxurious Rosehip Oil with your moisturizer.

    1. Emolliate the two together (oil & moisturiser), this has the effect of a richer application
    2. Apply the oil, then the day & night cream over it to lock in the moisture to protect the skin
    3. Apply the oil neat to get the full benefits of the oil, wait to fully absorb, then apply your moisturizing cream

  • Key Ingredients: Avocado Oil

    Key Ingredients - Avocado Oil

    Avocado oil is deeply absorbed by the skin, making it an ideal moisturizer and skin care ingredient. It relieves dry, itchy skin, and increases the production of collagen, which helps keep the skin plump and decreases the effects of ageing. It is also useful in the treatment of a variety of skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis.

    Avocado oil is found in many of the KORA Organics products such as the Soothing, Hydrating and Purifying Day & Night Creams, Cream Cleanser, Enriched Body Lotion and Daily Hand Cream.

    Take Time To Breathe, Mist & Center

    There are two ways to look at applying your certified organic products multiple times daily: as either "one more thing to do" or "my moment of zen in the middle of my day."

    I choose the latter.

    Eat Your Way To Healthy Skin - Grass-Fed Beef

    Grass-fed beef contains a higher ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids (to reduce inflammation), but it also contains nearly 30 grams of protein per 3.5-ounce serving. Protein is the building block of collagen and elastin tissue, which keeps skin taut and less wrinkled.

    Healing Energy

    You may have read in some press articles that when I'm asked what's in my handbag, along with my KORA Organics mist, lip balm, hand cream, phone, wallet and affirmation cards, I often mention a crystal wand or a Rose Quartz crystal.

  • How To: Make Almond Milk

    How To: Make Almond Milk

    Almond Milk is one of the most popular nondairy milks these days. The light, mildly sweet flavor is just right for everyday uses, such as cooking, pouring on cereal or adding to your cup of tea. Almonds are rich in Vitamin E, an antioxidant that can improve heart, eye, and brain health.

    How to make it: Soak one cup of raw almonds in enough water to cover them and soak for a minimum of four hours, or ideally overnight. Drain almonds and blend in a blender with four cups of water until smooth, about one minute. Strain and serve. You can refrigerate in a covered container for up to three days.

    Love Your Hands

    I've found the most amazing little routine that I just had to share...

    It's been rather dry where I live (we are in the middle of a drought) and I wash my hands a lot (I have a baby and a toddler) and as a result, my hands were starting to get very dry.

    Now, when the skin on my face gets dry, I have learned that the first thing I need to do is exfoliate and then apply my KORA Organics Hydrating Mask. So I adapted that and modified it for my hands!

    Eat Your Way To Healthy Skin - Pumpkin

    Cooked pumpkin is one of the best sources of beta-carotene. The body converts beta-carotene into Vitamin A (half a cup of cooked pumpkin contains nearly 400% of your RDI of Vitamin A), which is essential for the growth of skin cells.

  • Love Yourself, Love Your Body

    Love Yourself, Love Your Body

    I've written on this topic before, but I just can't say enough about it. It's so important that each of us, men and women, learn to really, really love and nurture ourselves and part of that is loving and accepting our bodies as they are.

    I know that many people reading or hearing that statement may automatically (and somewhat reflexively) think "I do love myself and my body." And I also know that some of those people actually don't. They think they do, but they don't.

    Maybe they take time out to exercise... but what I want to know is, do they smile when they do it? Or are they looking at themselves and trying to beat their bodies into a different shape and feeling unhappy and dissatisfied?

    Can you imagine truly loving your body the way it looks right now, and forgiving your body for every way in which it disappoints you?
