Why switch over to natural cosmetics from expensive manufactured brands?

natural makeup

By Brian Haupt, Inner Health advocate

We’ve all grown up with expensive and well-known makeup brands. TV, radio, Internet, and fashion magazines have given these brands a lot of exposure without discussing the dark side of these well-known beauty brands.

Cosmetic giants may not care about your health but you should. It’s about your skin after all.  Read on for 4 good reasons why switching to natural cosmetics is a must.

1. Soft and gentle on your skin

Natural makeup contains nutrients which benefit and nourish our skin.
Natural makeup contains minerals such as magnesium, calcium, zinc oxide and mica. Added botanical ingredients like tea tree oil, rosemary extracts, and green tea, protect your skin from dirt and damage.

Other manufactured brands of makeup contain chemicals which are harsh and have a negative impact on skin, especially, sensitive skin. Natural makeup is a better choice for sensitive skin, as it is less irritating and improves the overall condition of your skin.

2. Sun protection

Natural makeup contains three main ingredients – titanium oxide, zinc oxide, and iron oxide. These offer sun protection and reduce premature aging of the skin. This also decreases the risk of skin cancer as it contains fewer chemicals compared to manufactured brands cosmetics. Titanium oxide which is found in natural makeup provides an additional ultraviolet protection with its built-in SPF 15. Natural makeup also provides sun protection against UVA rays and UVB rays as it contains zinc oxide.

3. Provides protection to future generations

Makeup rich in chemicals has been shown to adversely affect the skin. Manufactured brands have even been linked to birth defects. Recently, a well-known household baby brand, mainly manufacturing baby products, was found to be linked to cancer.

Pregnant women using products such as shampoos, fragrances, cosmetics and nail polishes, containing large quantities of chemicals, may be more likely to have children who with disruptive behavior years later.
Children are innocent, and hence shouldn’t be the victims of the adult behavior and habits.

4. Gives a glowing skin

Natural makeup contains components such as oils, plant extracts and other natural ingredients which help in moisturizing and soothing the skin. Natural makeup is formulated without the use of pesticides, synthetics, herbicides and other harmful ingredients.

Our Inner Origin range of natural makeup is available here.

Jennifer Hinds founder of NAS Cosmetics

“Make-up was never living up to my expectations. Tired of wasting money trying countless brands, I decided that my lesson had been learned and I was now prepared to pay a premium price to use the best on the market. The product, I chose to purchase, was marketed as the products for film and television, and desperate for that “flawless” look, I went ahead and purchased a foundation for $90.

The product itself had a pungent odor and after using it for a week or so, I became nauseous whenever I applied it and had constant headaches. Deciding it must be ‘off’, I returned the product for an exchange, learning that this was, in fact, the true product, and I was having an overreaction.

It was at this moment, I decided that I would expose this industry by empowering women to become conscious consumers and make informed choices about choosing their makeup and in turn, other personal care items.
I vowed that I would make my own and I would do it in two weeks. As with small business, the two-part was correct however, I got the weeks and years very mixed up.”

NAS Cosmetics produces NATURAL, AUSTRALIAN & SAFE make-up and is dedicated to educating women on the importance of the motto “Know your Ingredients”

Sanakey - Chemical free pain relief

By Brian Haupt, Inner Health advocate

When you suffer from pain, it becomes a part of your daily life. Over time, you may accept your discomfort as an unavoidable consequence of conditions and injuries.

But the truth is you don’t have to live with pain.

What is pain?

Pain is complex. The International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) defines pain as

an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage. Pain is not just a physical sensation. It is influenced by attitudes, beliefs, personality and social factors, and can affect emotional and mental wellbeing.

It can be dull, aching or sharp and it may come or go. It may be localised in one area of your body, or it could be widespread.

Natural pain relief without chemicals

Using traditional medicines and devices such as TENS devices can help you to relieve pain initially, but as time passes their ability to control pain diminishes and can leave you in discomfort and pain once again. With the advancement of technology and medicine, there are numerous options available for those seeking pain relief.  Nevertheless, painkillers pose many risks and can harm your health. Addiction to these chemicals is also possible.

5 Tips for Environmentally Responsible Giving this Christmas

By Brian Haupt, Inner Health advocate

Christmas, It’s almost that time of the year again, the most celebrated holiday in the calendar year. Along with it comes excitement and joy that pretty much takes off from the first “ember” month to the 25th December. The festivity is vastly celebrated across the world and, unfortunately, as with all large celebrations comes a heavy repercussion to our ecosystem.
With the traditional positive activities associated with Christmas, there are negative side effects leaving their mark on our environment. For example the traditional act of gift giving. Australians spend over 16.2 billion dollars on Christmas celebrations with more than 65% of that amount spent on gifts. One negative result of this is paper gift wrappers/gift bags, paper decorations, Christmas cards, Christmas trees and electronic gadgets.
Let’s try and make a shift! New eco-friendly ideas are plentiful and, investments have been made into recycling in Australia. Here are 5 tips on how to have a healthy and eco-friendly Christmas;

1. Try Eco-packaging

Why not pop your presents in reusable gift boxes or only use recycled paper, reusable plastic boxes or packaging made from recycled materials. Or, use a gift to wrap your gift! Tea towels are great for this. This goes a long way to reduce our annual deforestation. Using durable items also means you can re-use them for years to come.

2. Go Green for the Tree

Christmas trees sold in Australia are usually plantation sources and subjected to sustainable forestry systems. As they reach maturity they help act as a filter to clean the air before being cut down for the festive season. Recycling your Christmas tree into green waste means you’re keeping it out of landfill. This small step will help reduce the production of greenhouse gases, which contributes to climate change.

3. Go digital & send e-cards

E-cards are growing popular in today’s digital era and that can serve as a great alternative to paper greeting/Christmas cards. If you love the paper version and spreading festive cheer by post, consider giving charity cards. Always look for cards made on recycled paper.

4. Make it tasty

A yummy treat is a wonderful gift option. Consider sourcing locally made organic produce. Or, go home-made! Edible gifts, like cookies made into little houses, chocolate bouquets, allow you to be creative and invest your time into your gift-giving.

5. Recycle your giving

Some people will get lucky and get the latest new toy or gadgets this year but there are many who are not as fortunate. So, when you have your annual post-Christmas declutter, instead of throwing the old stuff out, why not give it out to charity or a close friend who you know is going to love it, reducing wastes and spreading the joy.
Happy Christmas!
