Your knowledge is your single best tool to improve your wellbeing and live a longer, healthier & happier life (true story!). We believe that being selective is necessary to feel in line with your identity.
We may all have different skin types, but we can all claim that our skin (along with hair, nails, glands and nerves) is our largest organ. In adults, skin accounts for about 16 percent of total body weight and covers a surface area of approximately 22 square feet (2 square meters). And what is more astonishing is that in 28 days your skin completely renews itself, which is why a correct diet and good body care products can have a HUGE impact on your skin’s wellbeing.
Any clue what Caprylic Triglyceride on your beauty label means? Yup, we thought so.
Don’t fret, our newly launched blog series Beyond Labels will take you through a variety of information found on your labels and reveal their main purpose & relevant facts.
Let’s start with our bestselling and beloved ingredient Lavandula.
The word Lavandula is the scientific name for Lavender and comes from the Latin word of “lavare”, meaning “to wash”. We know that the scent of Lavender and its oil are perfect for soothing aching muscles and joints, and even help us get better sleep.
But, did you know that…
- Lavender comes from the same family as mint
- It is a commonly used ingredient in potpourri
- Despite our belief that Lavender is purple, it also comes in different colors (pink and yellow)
- More than 2500 years ago, the ancient Egyptians used Lavender during their mummification process
- Most active constituents of Lavender are Linalyl acetate and Linalool (more about these in our next posts!)
- It can reduce mental stress and anxiety
