Skin Care Spotlight: Living Nature Charcoal Clay Mask

 

 

Living Nature’s certified natural Charcoal Clay Mask is formulated with natural anti-pollutant, skin detoxifying ingredients to restore skin balance and leave you with a healthy, refreshed, glowing complexion.

Air pollution is one of the main contributing environmental pollution risks to our health and especially our skin. Present in both cities and rural areas, pollutants suffocate your skin by accumulating on the surface; harmful chemicals and toxins can attach themselves to these particulates and penetrate pores. These harmful substances can diffuse into deeper layers and induce skin irritations, skin sensitivity and premature ageing, as well as a dull, dry complexion.

To combat skin pollution, Charcoal Clay Mask has been formulated to detox, purify and strengthen your skin’s protective layer with active Bincho Tan Charcoal and ‘super berry’ Schisandra Chinensis. Halloysite Clay absorbs excess oils and aids in drawing out impurities, and skin superfoods Avocado Oil and Coconut Oil work to feed, nourish and soften skin. Organic Manuka Honey and Shea Butter add moisture while reducing inflammation and anti-oxidant rich Vitamin E helps to fight free radical damage.

Suitable for all skin types
10 x 5ml sachets.

Beauty Spotlight: Two Islands Natural Collagen Beauty Powder

 

 

Natural Collagen Beauty Powder 300gm

At Two Islands we are the first to admit that sometimes, everybody needs a little help to shine. So we have designed a Collagen Beauty Powder to do just that.

Containing the highest quality Type 1 Marine Collagen Peptides, with added Vitamin C for absorption, this supplement helps support hair, skin and nails.

Collagen is the protein that makes up approximately 75% of skin, and is key to its structure and elasticity. After our early 20’s the collagen levels in our skin begin to drop each year. As a result, the skin becomes thinner, dehydrated and more fragile. Feed your skin from the inside out with Two Islands Natural Beauty Powder so you can boost your body’s natural beauty anytime, anywhere.

• Sustainably Sourced
• High dose
• All Natural
• GMO Free
• Tasteless
• Odourless
• Water Soluble

 

Ingredients: Marine Collagen Peptides, Ascorbic Acid

About the company

We’re Grin Natural a 100% natural New Zealand made toothpaste brand. Back in 2013 with the surge of organic food and natural products we started to look at the ingredients in our toothpaste. Unable to find a toothpaste on the market that was 100% natural without any added chemicals we set out to make a new kind of toothpaste to treat our teeth and mouths to something better.

We wanted to create a product different to the rest, one that is 100% natural with NO sodium lauryl sulfate, NO added sugar, NO preservatives, NO artificial colours, NO artificial flavours, NO fragrance and NO harsh abrasives. It was as much about what we were leaving out as what we were putting in. Read More

About ManukaRx

We started the journey in 2016 because we were passionate about New Zealand and New Zealand products that could help the world and in particular the healing powers of our unique plant life. We understood that nature had created its own dispensary here and we wanted to be part of the solution of global health ….. Better, naturally ….. became our mantra.

New Zealand’s isolation meant it was one of the last places on Earth to be inhabited by humans and its plants and animals developed without cross-breeding from imported species. When the resourceful voyaging Polynesian people, known as the Maori, arrived (some time between AD 1100 and 1300) they discovered a unique environment of abundant food and water. Most precious of all, they discovered that the plants of this new land provided effective herbal remedies. A most valued plant was a scrubby looking plant known as manuka (which has the botanical name of leptospermum scoparium). Read More

Key Active Ingredients

Magnolia Bark Extract
Magnolia bark extract works to control oral bacteria growth and prevent the build up of tartar. This active ingredient comes from the magnolia tree which is recognised for containing several natural, compounds that function as anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-allergic agents.
Natural Hydroxyapatite
Don’t let that scientific name fool you - hydroxyapatite is a naturally occuring mineral form of calcium apatite and is actually the main mineral that our dental enamel is made of.

Hydroxyapatite is the best alternative to fluoride and has been proven to provide the necessary minerals to remineralise subsurface areas of the tooth, restoring the enamel to its near natural state, without changing the composition of the enamel.
Organic Sea Salt
Ever wondered why dentists suggest rinsing with saltwater after a dental procedure? The alkaline nature of sea salt increases the pH balance of your mouth, creating an environment that bacteria really, really hate. The sea salt we’ve put in Grin is certified organic, so it retains more of the good stuff such as calcium, magnesium, silicon, phosphorus and iron.

  • Aspartame-free formulation

 

Why Use Healtheries Boost® Energy?
Work, family, fun… staying on top of it all takes a lot of energy. No wonder so many of us hit the 3pm energy slump – let alone struggle to stay alert in the evenings once we’ve made it through the day.

Healtheries Boost® Energy is the fast, fun way to support your energy levels all day long. It combines Guarana (a natural source of caffeine) with high-strength B and C vitamins for a quick hit of good energy.  And the effervescent, aspartame-free tablets dissolve quickly in water to create a fizzy, tropical-flavoured drink that your body immediately absorbs.

 

Recommended for:

  • Revitalising your body and mind when you’re feeling tired, drained or fatigued
  • Supporting your alertness and attention span if you need to study or drive after a long day
  • Recharging your energy levels before you go out in the evenings
  • Using as an alternative to sugary energy drinks if you’re diabetic or watching your weight

 

Contains no:
Wheat, gluten, animal products, dairy products, egg, soy, corn, artificial colours or preservatives.

 

Cautions:

  • If you’re taking prescription medication, consult your healthcare practitioner before you use this product.
  • B-Complex vitamins can turn your urine bright yellow. This is completely normal, and just results from the way your body breaks down the vitamins once you’ve taken them.
  • This product is not recommended if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Each tablet contains 252mg of sodium, 2.5mg of caffeine.
  • If you’re sensitive to any of these ingredients, or are on a low-sodium diet, this product may not be suitable for you.
  • This product is not recommended for children under 16 – keep it out of their reach.

 

 

Ingredient Information

B Complex Vitamins

  • B-Complex vitamins are a group of nutrients that your body uses in a wide variety of ways – several of which are involved in energy production.
  • Your adrenal glands use B-vitamins to support normal function, which in turn helps to maintain healthy energy levels.
  • B-group vitamins also play a role in appetite regulation and digestive system function, as well as helping your body to metabolise fats, proteins and carbohydrates.
  • Your body also uses B-vitamins to help it produce important hormones and immunity-supporting antibodies, as well as to help manufacture red blood cells.
  • Lastly, B-vitamins help your body to maintain healthy skin, mucous membrane and eye tissue.

 

Vitamin C

  • Vitamin C is known as “the immunity vitamin” because it supports your body’s resistance to winter ills and chills; and can help with recovery time.
  • Your white blood cells (part of your immune system) need Vitamin C to function normally and help you maintain health and wellbeing.
  • Your adrenal glands use up Vitamin C when they respond to stressful situations (e.g. sudden temperature changes, changes of season, life stresses, etc).
  • Your body uses Vitamin C to make collagen – a protein that helps to form healthy skin, ligaments, tendons, bones and teeth. That’s why your body needs more Vitamin C when you’re healing from surgery and injury.
  • Vitamin C helps your body to absorb Iron – a mineral you need for healthy red blood cells, which in turn assist with fatigue and support immunity.
  • Finally, Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to guard your cells against free radical damage.

 

Guarana

  • Guarana is a small brownish-red berry that grows in the Amazon basin. It is naturally high in caffeine, which helps to provide immediate energy.
  • Guarana was traditionally used by Brazillian Indians as a stimulating hot drink (much like coffee or tea) to fight tiredness and fatigue
  • Today, people often use Guarana when they want to stay focused and alert, or need help with concentration or energy levels.
