Let’s face it. The cosmetic industry is brimming with preservatives and chemicals, many of which are known to be harmful to your health.
The not-so-pretty truth is that, according to the not-for-profit Environmental Working Group, the average woman applies up to 168 chemicals to their face and bodies every day, and as we all know skin is one of our main organs.
The good news is that Mother Nature has a cure for almost everything. One of which, in my humble, yet first-hand opinion is Eco Diva – it’s organic, eco-friendly, vegan, cruelty-free, it’s luxurious, it’s high-performance and it’s made locally.
So, make space in your makeup bags girls, this one’s going to leave a lasting impression (and make you feel beautiful).
Why it works
According to founder and face of the brand Nicole Sherwin, “The reason Eco Diva Natural Skincare works so well is purely a matter of biology. The body and cells recognise the synergistic molecular structure of their uniquely natural formulae and then utilises it instead of rejecting it.”
It makes sense and is substantiated by their increased amounts of antioxidants, vitamins, mineral salts, essential fatty and amino acids – all crucial for skin-cell repair.
Age with beauty!
Although the brand is formulated for all skin types across a spectrum of age, race and gender barriers, Eco-Diva has recently developed a new generation of organic skincare formulations with natural ingredients that have revolutionised the traditional approach to anti-aging skincare.
All products in the Anti-Aging range contain anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and deeply moisturizing (perfect for dry winter skin) properties that feed the skin with the nutrients it needs to assist in rejuvenating collagen production, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, plumping the skin and allowing that fresh, youthful glow to shine through. Yes, please!
Examples of their multi-function products are their hero elixir Face Serum which works well as a nourishing beard oil; their highly nutritious Body Oil for shaving and their Crème Brûlée Body Butter which acts as a brilliant barrier to prevent nappy rash in babies, and scarring or stretch marks during pregnancy.
I’m approaching 40 fast (eek), and can personally vouch for their Anti-Aging Face Wash and Face Cream; both of which I find to be silky smooth and instantly glowy. And I love that their products are all lightly perfumed in a kind of wholesome way. Not to mention ‘green’, which for a nature lover and wanna be health freak like me is comforting, to say the least.
According to Nicole, my next investment needs to be their Exfoliant Skin Polish and their anti-aging Face Serum to maintain a hydrated, healthy and super-model glowing skin – I’m holding her to the latter!
