Vitamin E — All Natural, GMO And Palm Oil Free

eco-seed-to-skin-care

The Vitamin E we use in our products is GMO-free and vegetable obtained.

Vitamin E Oil is a natural antioxidant. It is very moisturising (particularly helpful due to its close relationship with our Sebum Oil) and has been known to help minimise scars, help improve severe dry skin, and is also noted for its anti-inflammatory, anti-ageing benefits and its success in reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Topical application of Vitamin E has been proven beneficial in many clinical trials. It has also been found to absorb the energy from ultraviolet (UV) light. This means its helpful in photo-protection and preventing UV-induced free radical damage to skin*.

The Vitamin E Oil that we use in Saarinen Organics products is a natural, GMO-free Vitamin E Oil (Tocopherol T-50)—the purest form of natural vitamin E available and is obtained strictly from plant sources only.

So the very best thing you can do is to apply vitamin E nightly and also eat a wide range of food that contains high vitamin E to help you glow from the inside out, what you eat we can definitely see on the skin.

Macadamia Nut Oil — Certified Organic

eco-seed-to-skin-care-macadamia-nuts

When we’re young, we hate when our skin produces excess oil, because it can cause acne. However, this same oil, known as Sebum, becomes our friend as we age because it helps us keep the skin moist and gives a youthful appearance.

Sebum is produced far less as we get older, with a considerable depletion occuring at age 40. This is why our skin dries out and eventually begins to wrinkle. The cosmetics industry encourages us to turn to synthetic moisturisers to help slow the process, but those products are simply not as effective on our skin as Sebum Oil.

Luckily nature is generous and provides multiple solutions. Recent research has found that palmitoleic acid, the omega 7 fatty acid found in Sebum can be sourced from multiple elements of the natural world. One such of these is particularly abundant, helpful, and native to Australia—Macadamia Oil.

Our Sebum supply declines as we age, however, the qualities of Macadamia Oil have been proven to act as a natural anti-aging tool.

When applied to the skin it is absorbed fully and doesn’t leave a greasy feel. Because it’s so close to your skin’s naturally produced oil, it’s able to help soften fine lines and wrinkles, providing a treatment that is both nourishing and grounding.

This is why we use certified organic Macadamia Nut Oil in our all-natural eco skincare range. Handcrafted on our permaculture farm in the Bega Valley, Wyndham, NSW.

A little about the properties of Macadamia Nuts

Macadamia nuts contain over 75% of their weight as oil, the remainder is 9.0% proteins, 9.3% carbohydrates, 1.5% moisture, 1.6% mineral matters, and 2.0% fibre. The kernels of macadamia contain vitamin A1, B1, B2, niacin, and essential elements such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium. The oil is a triglyceride oil and contains primarily monounsaturated fats up to 80–84%. Macadamia oil contains the highest percentage of monounsaturates when compared to both olive and canola oils.[1]

Macadamia nuts are also high in oleic acid (omega 9) and linoleic acid (omega 6) which helps the skin to restore its barrier function and maintain moisture. These fatty acids also boast anti-inflammatory properties, helping your skin to remain healthy and smooth.

What Is Beauty To You?

eco-seed-to-skin-care-Gemma-and-graham

WHAT IS BEAUTY TO YOU?
Beauty to me is:
Clean and healthy skin.
Clean teeth and a smile.
Clean and healthy hair.
Clean and healthy food.
Clean words and thoughts.
Clean clothes.
Clean and healthy on the inside.
I want to teach my daughter that wanting to feel beautiful doesn’t mean to coat your skin with makeup or fear wrinkles, skin that is clean, shiny, and healthy is beautiful.
Health and beauty radiates through clean healthy teeth and smile, so brush them every day and laugh often, there is nothing more beautiful than a face with character, with lines of laughter, love and life.
Clean and shiny hair simply brushed up in a ponytail, neatly trimmed, is far more beautiful than hair sprayed and torched for hours each day.
To eat clean healthy food you will be a nice healthy weight and you will glow with the health of shiny hair, nails and skin, your breath and teeth will naturally be beautiful.
Clean words—there is nothing more ugly than harsh words and anger, stand up for yourself, there is no need to be mean or gossipy, you will be admired and loved.
Clean clothes—don’t worry about the fashions of the now, as long as your clothes are clean and feel comfortable to you, believe me girl when I say to you, a clean potato sack will look good on you when you are clean and healthy.
It is so ok to play in the garden and get covered in dirt.
It is ok to play in the sea, your hair full of salt and sand.
It is ok to cuddle your favorite chicken at the kitchen table.
And go wading in the dam knee-deep in mud to harvest reeds to weave your bags, this is not ugly dirty dirt, this is clean dirt you can wash off.
Ugliness is the dought we carry to needlessly be knee-deep in dept to cover ourselves in fashion and paint. Ugliness is anger and mean words and thoughts, drugs, smoking and fast food are the ugly dirty dirt you cannot wash off.
Glow naturally, age naturally and cleanly, this is the most beautiful and kind thing you can do for yourself.
