They go together. Flowers and bees. As you may have heard, bees have been dying in the millions. The commonly held scientific opinion is that neonicotinoids (pesticides) are to blame. Using organic flowers supports organic farmers and bees. Bees that are vital to our lives and our economy as pollinators of our food supply. Besides who wants chemicals on their flowers or on their skin?
Sweet almond oil is used in high quality skin care and is a nice, light oil suitable for all skin types.** It's high in vitamin E, zinc and is an anti-inflammatory. It also softens and helps skin retain it's natural moisture. However, it has to be organic. Since 2007, all almonds, including raw almonds, must be pasteurized. All non organic almonds are now sprayed with a chemical called PPO (propylene oxide). PPO is a suspected carcinogen. In fact, most countries, including the EU, ban imported nuts treated with PPO. It is so nasty that it was banned by the National Hot Rod and American Motorcycle Racing Associations, where it had been used as a fuel additive. Certified organic sweet almond oil is from steam pasteurized almonds. No engine fuel, and no other chemicals, pesticides, GMO, or similar poisons. Certified organic was the only way to go.
Beeswax protects and moisturizes the skin. It also has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral benefits. Also, almonds are also 100% dependent on bees for pollination. Hardly makes sense to kill off vital partners in creating Satya Skin Care does it? No to neonicotinoids!
Jojoba closely resembles our skin's own natural oils and is also high in antioxidants. Jojoba is also an anti inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal and great moisturizer. Although I could not find a specific reason for going organic with the jojoba, I believe it is better to be safe and go 100% organic and all natural.
Oatmeal has been used for centuries as a soothing agent to relieve itch and irritation. Oats are rich in beta-glucans, which can reduce skin inflammation, activate immune cells and stimulate your skins collagen. They are also rich in saponins, which are chemical compounds found in plants These saponins give oatmeal cleansing, moisturizing and soothing qualities that are wonderfully nourishing.
