Any recommendations on an organic all natural product? There are so many out there to choose from so I am kind of lost!

Hi, there's a very informative site called Mir skincare, check out giseles quide. Unfortunatly the products didn't work for me but great info! Terralina.com has some beautiful products that works wonders for sensitive skin. Terressentials also has great info and products. A word to the wise -be careful, just because somethings natural doesn't mean its good for your skin. Over powering essential oils drove my skin into an itchy acneic mess. Good luck!

My favorite skincare lines are Pangea Organics and Farmaesthetics. Both very natural, eco-friendly and good for all skin types. Pangea has a great anti-aging mask and Farmaesthetics has a great pore-refining mask, too.

Try to stay away from anything containing mineral oils...mineral oil molecules are too large to penetrate the skins deeper layers, so anything with mineral oil will never make it to a celluar level. (important for anti-aging)

I know I am really careful about what I put on my face too. I don't like to use any harsh ingredients and prefer natural as first choice. I hate chemicals of any kind.

Have you guys ever considered that there are synthetic chemicals that will be alot gentler on the skin than natural ingredients? Natural doesn't always mean better; just food for thought.

I tend to agree on both counts Freddy. Sometimes natural ingredients combined with synthetics are gentler, but there are certain synthetics you do want to avoid.

Aubrey organics is one of my favorites too. I love their masks. One of my favorites products though is their sunscreen. Just keep in mind that often organic products may have a unique smell but you get used to it.

SouthAustinPeople has great organic soaps and lotions. I've been using their soaps for a while now and just love them.

I highly recommend checking out Seina Soap Companies website (**************) for all natural soaps, shampoo bars, lip balms, salves, lotion bars and baby products. Every product is handmade by all natural and organic products. I've been using the products on myself and kids for over a year and have noticed a remarkable difference. Our skin in much softer and moisturized.

Here is a little info from the website:

Natural or pure soap means that you receive all the soapâ€2122s wonderfully moisturizing and rich naturally occurring glycerin. Commercial soap companies take out the glycerin from their soap products and resell it. Glycerinâ€2122s high value is sought after for the manufacturing of lotions and creams.

Additionally, many brand name soaps are full of synthetic additives, petroleum products, or toxic chemicals that are simply unhealthy!

After the use of such brand name products, your skin, the largest organ of your body, is left feeling dry, flaky, and itchy, while it is stripped of its natural oils. Its no wonder, for our skin absorbs between 60 to 70% of all products that it comes in contact with.

Terressentials (google it and you should find their website which you can order from) has an amazing facial care line. I used the cleanser, toner and lotion and my skin cleared up right away. Their "Terrific Tush" is really good as a spot treatment for when you do break out, although I was skeptical when the owner recommended it. Unfortunately I'm broke so I had to give them up. Now I use Kiss My Face bar soap, emu oil, AHA and BP from Paula's Choice.

I have found that my skin does much better on natural non-synthetic products. I cannot use facial lotions even if they are designed for acne prone or sensitive skin. Over Thanksgiving I ran out of my soap and bought something from the drugstore (after reading all the labels) and it STILL made me break out.

Check out Eminence Organics on the web. They are hand made organic holistic skin care line from Hungary. I've been using them for over a year and am getting along just great with them. You'll be able to find a retailer in your area through their web site.
I did try Aubrey Organics before, but didn't like them that much. I found Eminence to be better quality. Good Luck - it seems there are many organic skin care lines to choose from!

Hi All , Im new to this forum and been scouring the internet on a skincare company called eminence . There appears to be a few companies with similar names but apparantly the one I am investigating is a Canadian based company. I have owned my own salons for over ten years and have never seen anything quite like what Ive seen today - and if this would have happened in one of my salons would have been devasted ( and I am for my friend ) . Following a promotion she booked into a salon and received an organic Soothing Rose facial.. The therapist conducted a verbal consultation and performed the facial. Now my friend resembles the elephant man , has attended A+E at the local hospital and has been prescribed steroids following a second visit to her GP. Obviously my friend has had a severe re-action but I am at a loss for words to explain how something organic can cause such disfigurement be it tempory ( hopefully).
Any advice
Thanks

I'd be interested to see a list of ingredients. People often don't understand that some of the things used in natural/organic can be very, very strong. Essential oils for instance, and I'm wondering if they used rose essential oils since it was a rose facial, should never be used on the face and should always be used diluted in a carrier oil on the rest of the body. Also there are certails oils that are very dangerous for pregnant women. I do hope your friend is feeling better but I would try to find out what was in the facial as she needs to know what it is that she is highly allergic to.

I did find http://www.eminenceorganics.com which was a company based in Vancouver I don't know if this is the company you are looking for. I did look at some of their products and notice on their masks it says dilution recommended.
