As we launch into 2018, many of us are thinking about how we can improve our lifestyle and wellbeing. We might think of daily exercise, regular, meditation, healthier food, greater consciousness... but many of us overlook our daily beauty routines which include products packed with toxins. So, why not make it a New Year's resolution to be conscious of the products you are using on your skin and hair...? You'll be surprised just how life-changing it will be for you and your family in the immediate and long term. 

Here are a few facts below to support you in your path to purity..

Dermatologists recommend against using fragranced, lathery soap as it's a major cause of dry skin. 

Yep....it's a fact. While more and more of us are experiencing dry skin conditions, we continue to use harmful sulphate based soaps with synthetic fragrances which are proven to be a major cause of dry skin. Look for sulphate free products, rich in natural plant oils, butters and essential oils that can provide gentle natural fragrances.

Surfactants have a multi-fold effects on skin barrier function

 

Sodium Lauryl Sulphates and Sodium Laureth Sulphates...

 

...are damaging to the skin although can be tolerated if thoroughly rinsed off immediately. This is the latest advice from the European Journal of Dermatology, Dec, 2015. As a reminder, this includes sulphate based shampoos that if not rinsed thoroughly, will eventually cause scalp irritation. Vatea's Kind Shampoo is sulphate and paraben free and will not cause irritation; it also smells beautiful and natural!

Surfactants have a multi-fold effects on skin barrier function

Eczema is most common in infants...

  ... and affects around 1 in 5 children under 2 years of age. Doctors advise anyone suffering from eczema or dry skin conditions to avoid using sulphate based washes and detergents including bubble baths. 

I never realised how important it is to rinse all the soapy bubbles off, particularly as the soap often gets caught in babies skin folds, causing irritation and skin damage.  

Vatea's Dreamy Bath Wash has a very mild foaming action which provides just enough wash to remove milk fats following feeding and keeps the bottom clean...most importantly, it's not full of bubbles - hooray!
