Until May 10th, we’re extending Weleda’s current 20% off promotion on the whole Wild Rose face and body care range. Whether you’re thinking of buying something for Mother’s Day or as a gift for yourself, now is the perfect time to experience this remarkable selection of products and help your skin improve and strengthen its natural balance and vitality.
Mother’s Day is around the corner (6 days away to be precise!), but never fear if you haven’t sorted a gift out for your mum yet. We’ve put together a Pinterest board with some great gift ideas that are sure to delight any mum – take a look at our selection and don’t hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions or special requests!
Wotnot baby wipes remain one of our best sellers year over year for good reason: they’re 100% biodegradable and compostable (in other words, brilliant from an environmental perspective!), suitable for the most sensitive skin and Wotnot are completely transparent about their ingredients – the wipes are free from chlorine and other artificial additives, containing only certified organic aloe vera along with pure and mild ingredients to soothe and protect your little one’s skin.
We’re beyond pleased so many people out there are embracing juicing and food dehydrating – and after getting many requests for book recommendations we realised both practices can be a little daunting when you’re just beginning. If you’re lacking overall confidence right now, it won’t be for long if you turn to our book section!
We are big fans of all things rose – we’ve already written about the benefits of rose water and why it should be a part of your daily routine (if it’s not, take a minute to read the post – we’ll wait here).
Aside from smelling heavenly, rose is considered to have calming properties making it an obvious choice to scent DIY bath products or body scrubs and make a pampering ritual feel that much more special and relaxing.
We’ve just joined Pinterest and would love to connect with you there. This is how to find us – you can look forward to boards with our favourite healthy recipes (we have 2 juicers and a blender in our Echolife office kitchen after all!) as well as boards to offer solutions for every skin type and concern, and inspiration from farther and wider corners of the web.
Love will be in the air tomorrow and to show ours we will be running a special offer. All orders above $50 will receive a free A Bit of Burt’s Bees pack which includes a mini Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream and full size Beeswax or Pomegranate lip balm*!
A very fitting alternate title might have been ‘High performance meets precision and delicious results ensue’ – since it arrived a few short weeks ago, the latest addition to the Echolife kitchen has been buzzing daily delivering perfect smoothies to hungry staff mid-afternoon. And smoothies are only the tip of the delicious iceberg: if you’re on the market for an all-around easy-to-use kitchen helper that can do your food prep as well as whip up all sorts of wholesome concoctions effortlessly, we recommend you give the MegaMix a look. Not least because until the end of April it’s on sale, at a stupendous $200 off RRP!
It seems fitting to announce new products and specials in our first post of the new year! If one of your New Year’s Resolutions was switching to sulfate free hair care or helping your skin regain its balance, then you’re in luck.
If you didn’t make any resolutions (or not these 2), read on anyway!
If you are one of the million + viewers of The Story of Cosmetics, you no doubt were a little disconcerted to find out so many synthetic and chemical additives make their way into common skin care products.
Some of the worst offenders are preservatives like parabens or formaldehyde derivatives – they prolong the shelf life of products but can accumulate in our bodies and reach potentially harmful levels. Other ingredients such as mineral oil, petrolatum and fillers don’t in fact hydrate the skin all that much – but act more like cling film that clogs pores and can lead to breakouts or irritation. Not to mention harsh surfactants disrupt skin’s pH and strip its protective acid mantle…
So what can we do to reduce the 100 or more different synthetic chemicals in our daily skin care routine?
