SkinEthics Modern Formulations by Glo

It’s skin fitness

The best that nature has to offer, enhanced by science. We know more today than we have ever known about how the body works, about how it is made up, and about what it is made of. We know about the building blocks of cells, how they communicate, our unique DNA, and how age, the elements, and stresses cause our bodies to change over time. We have explored the far ends of our planet in more forensic detail than ever before, examining microscopic organisms and cell structures in search of the elusive spark of youth. Where some companies turn first to the laboratory in search of answers, we consult nature to see what she can teach us about health, vitality, and about preserving our beauty. Nature has precious secrets worth unlocking. With a keen eye, an enquiring mind and science as the key, almost anything is possible. Keeping it fundamental and affordable.

Planet Earth, the living, breathing pharmacy…that never closes!

The more we learn, the more we realise what we don’t know and the more we still have to learn. Whereas that may be daunting to some, it’s exciting to us. We love learning, we’re excited about the search for knowledge, the pathways we look down and more importantly the insights we gain that help us develop more gentle, more effective and more beautiful cosmetic products.

Traditionally, whenever we’ve searched for ingredients to treat our ailments, we’ve looked to nature. Natural oils and emollients to moisturise, protect and keep our skin hydrated. Fruits, fruits acids and natural acids to keep exfoliate our skin. Saponifying (soap-like) plant extracts to cleanse our skin and hair. Algae and Seaweed minerals for skin and hair health. Honey, avocado and nutrient-rich oils to nourish, protect and smooth skin and hair.

Each region, and each local ethnic group has health and beauty secrets that have been passed down through the ages, from mother to daughter, from father to son, from generation to generation. That is traditionally, how it has always been…until relatively recently.

New is not always better.

The coming of the industrial age, the industrial revolution, could also be called the scientific revolution, and it dramatically changed the way we thought and acted. Mankind revelled in his new-found mastery of all things, his dominance of the planet, over every part, everything, and everyone on it. This arrogance, caused many to turn their backs on nature, and on natural ways, turning instead to the modern ‘revolutionary’ products emerging from the laboratories and factories at ever alarming rates.

In reality however, often these ‘revolutions’ were merely mass produced, cheap immitations of naturally occuring compounds. Many were ground-breaking, many were very beneficial (even life saving), while others were (and still are) inferior. Many are harsh and some are downright dangerous. Wherever possible SkinEthics chooses the purest, most natural ingredients we can. If we know of a better alternative, we’ll use it. If nature needs a little help from science to deliver a substantial performance enhancement, we’ll take it, but rest assured, we will always do it with respect, we will always do it with care, we will always do it ethically.

CLEANSERS

Uncover your natural beauty.

Developing an effective cleansing regime is perhaps the most undervalued and overlooked routine in the search for beautiful, healthy skin. Every day, natural oils mix with environmental pollutants, make-up and other contaminants to rob the skin of its natural glow, which can leave it lack-lustre, clogged and lethargic. SkinEthic’s (Soap Free) cleansers help correct the problem, gently emulsifying excess oils, helping to unclog pores while removing unwanted dirt, grime and make-up. Gentle pH-balanced cleansers, humectants and emollients help slide away impurities, providing vital moisture and protection, while anti-oxidants, phyto-nutrients; vitamins and minerals help restore healthy skin function.

Free from: Petrochemicals, Parabens, Sulphates, Phthalates, Sodium Chloride, Palm Oil, MEA, DEA, Artificial Colours and Animal Testing.

Exfoliants

Polish your way to perfection.

Every day the body produces around 36,000,000 new skin cells. Some old cells are removed due to abrasion and general wear and tear, however on less exposed areas, and as we age the process of renewal slows down. This can lead to a build up of old cells, clogged pores and a dull appearance. SkinEthics combines gentle emollients, phyto-nutrients, micro-abrasives and natural acids in a rich emulsion that can be safely used to gently remove old skin to uncover newer cells, for a fresher, healthier looking complexion. Exfoliation can be used to prepare the skin for further treatment, such as deep, intense moisturising, and can help to visibly reduce the signs of hyper-pigmentation.

Free from: Petrochemicals, Parabens, Sulphates, Phthalates, Sodium Chloride, Palm Oil, MEA, DEA, Artificial Colours and Animal Testing.
