Skin Bio Part 2

There is so much more information on the anatomy and biology of the skin, but I want to highlight why it is important from a cosmetics point of view. The skin’s natural pH is around 5.5. Thanks to an advertising campaign and brand name of one of the multinationals, most people know this, but that is where the understanding and knowledge ends. Why does it…

What does Freedom mean to you?

We all associate freedom with some political context, but what about a personal context? We have freedom of choice. Choice of whatever we want in whatever way. We can choose who we want to be friends with, what we wear, how we do our make-up and where we go. Those are some simple examples of freedom that we take for granted. It’s always been like…

Palm oil is not the worst

Everyone is up in arms and the “Boycott Palm Oil’ posts are being shared faster than a flu virus. This is so typical of our social media boycotts. Everyone gets into a tizz, shares everything to show that they stand by the cause, point fingers at those that don’t share or do anything….and then…. less than a week later everything is forgotten.

The Good, the Bad and The Ugly of Palm Oil

As the story goes, give me the good news first. What is good about palm oil and why is it used? It is the cheapest of all vegetable oils. So when price wars started and supermarkets and consumers did not want to pay higher for other oils, palm oil started getting used. Cooking oil is probably one of those that uses the most. Palm oil…
