sustainable palm oil

We know you care about the issue of palm oil – and so do we… We take seriously the environmental concerns of the palm oil industry and endeavour to minimise use of this ingredient in our products. Our company is constantly looking for sustainable alternatives not just for this palm oil, but for all our formulations and packaging. While we are working towards phasing out palm oil entirely, we have taken the best action possible to mitigate against our minimal usage. We are members of the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) and have approval to use their logo. This means that we have calculated the total amount of palm oil used in our formulations, including products where there may be possible palm-oil derivatives, and we offset this with the purchase of RSPO certified credits. These credits incentivise the production of certified sustainable palm oil. You will see this authorisation on our packaging with the following symbol.  

pleasure and pms

Emmie Rae is a Restorative Yoga teacher based in Sydney, Australia. She created her journal emmierae.com to share her relaxation practices and inspiration. We’ve been inspired by this article about pleasure and premenstrual syndrome. “Last month will go down in history as The Month I Suffered Zero Pre-Menstrual Syndrome symptoms. Suffering zero PMS symptoms always seemed to me, a ridiculous goal. A goal that takes an interest in health too far, that strives for perfection, that comes at the sake of having any fun or semblance of a life or personality remain. I have noticed in myself, that PMS symptoms generally appear to be, almost directly related to how stressful the last month of my life was. And while ridding myself of them completely, only to run out into the woods as the full moon rises and bleed directly into the earth wearing a floaty white dress is not really my goal (but cool if it’s yours) to be able to experience less discomfort and more chill (though crying at unrequited love between tv show …

treat your eyes

We all want shiny bright eyes, whites that are super white and not a touch of redness. Tiredness, too much time staring at screens and pollution or wind can make our eyes red and scratchy. As women, another big factor is what we put on our eyes. It can all look okay in the mirror – but who knows the feeling of checking your reflection later in a mirror and seeing those puffy, sore eyes staring back? Luckily – in 2019, there’s a solution! People talk a lot about detoxing from toxins and chemicals, and makeup is so important. Especially the eyes. If you feel your eyes reacting to eyeshadow and stinging when you wear your favourite mascara, it’s a sign that you need to switch to natural makeup. Our eyes tell a lot about our body, so let’s listen to what the information we are giving us…

Do you wear eyeshadow? Do you know that we have three colour palettes you’ll love? Do you know we are so eco-friendly & aware of your wallet – you can buy your favourite shades individually when they run out? Chamomile Eye Palette – gorgeous is much-loved and you should know all about her. She has six eyeshadows in neutral and earthy tones. Including three shimmer shades + three matte shades. Formulated with calming chamomile, so natural & friendly to sensitive eyes. We’ve all looked in the mirror after a few hours of wearing eyeshadow, only to see red, unhappy eyes staring back. Gorgeous will not do this to your precious eyes! The colours in this palette are named after some of Ere’s favourite women: AYLIN – warm sand * FAY – autumn hues * ANA – light terracotta KAT – bronze goddess * VICKY – golden olive * ESTELLE – deep brown

Life is full-on in 2019. We see it every day in the news, there’s poverty, wars, inequality, climate change, deforestation, plastic in our oceans. If I see one more picture of a turtle swimming in plastic bags… we are all suffering from compassion overload! There are so many things wrong with society that we wish we could change, that sometimes it feels easier to just switch off and forget. While things can feel overwhelming, there is also so much hope. We can’t fight every battle single-handedly, but as humans and consumers – we have more power than we know. All around us, our world is changing for the better. Every day people have made new systems, creations, businesses and laws that mean we are treating each other, our planet and animals BETTER. There are so many ways to put our money to good causes, ethical brands, and solutions that HELP.

moringa mornings

For busy mornings, shared mirrors & skin that’s in need of a little lovin’… If you start the day with exercise, a swim, a surf, road-running or wake-up with dry skin, our moringa all-beauty crème will give your skin the pep it needs. This moisturising cream is versatile and designed to care for all skins, men included. Men’s skin can tend to be thicker and in need of a real boost of vitamins and hydration. We’re glad it’s 2019 and men can take care of their skin, spend a little money on products that make them look and feel good, and also – prevent damage from sun exposure, pollution and the weather. Switching to natural skin products can alleviate many common skin complaints, including dryness, redness and breakouts. And we all know that limiting our consumption of chemicals – both internally and externally – is a good thing.

The in-between seasons can affect skin just as much as winter and summer. The only difference is, sometimes we forget this! When it’s not icy cold of blazing hot, we can feel like our skin is taken care of as its not assaulted by the elements in extreme ways. We can relax a little in our skin routine and beauty rituals. We are all about a fuss-free lifestyle, but our skin needs our attention all year round. In spring and autumn/fall, we still need to nourish our skin as it recovers from what has just been and gets ready for the season ahead. In fact, often the prep work we do at these times can see our skin through a snowy winter or a humid summer. You may not need an intensive night cream or lip treatment in these months, but an all-purpose facial oil is perfect for lighter weather.
