Pure & Natural Handcrafted Naturopathic Skin Care

Environmental Care

We live in a consumer world bombarded with marketing slogans & artificially created fashion trends, to keep us desiring the latest material possession that we don’t really need, & spending our hard earned cash.  We all get sucked in to this pervasive strong hold on our psyche, but at some point, hopefully, we pull ourselves in to being & start to shed the illusion of the outer image & the altered ego!

One of the biggest reasons for starting the Skin Kiss range was to make a truly positive impact, one person at a time & quoting Mahatma Gandhi, you must be the change you wish to see in the world, honestly captivates our sentiments perfectly. We are trying to help people understand that the sun is a natural health property & we don’t need to fear it, only respect it.  In doing so, people won’t be so quick to use chemical fake tans & sunscreens; which when washed off, also end up in our land fill.  Multiply personal use by millions of users & we have a problem.

  • Each and every second 310 Kg of toxic chemicals are released into our air, land, and water by industrial facilities around the world.
  • This amounts to approximately 10 million tons (over 21 billion pounds) of toxic chemicals released into our environment by industries each year.
  • Of these, over 2 million tons (over 4.5 billion pounds) per year are recognised carcinogens. This amounts to about 65 Kg each second.

No one person is perfect, we are all trying (hopefully) to care for this planet that sustains our life.  Despite environmental policies, government is controlled by huge corporations who fund agendas not privy to public scrutiny.  So it is really up to us to search within ourselves for the answers & to be mindful in our daily lives; mindfully doing what is right for our co-existence; here, right now.  What we consume & wear has miles attached to its creation; did you buy or consume something locally or from 1000’s of miles away?  Is the production of what you consume harming the planet & using humans slaves to produce it???  These are the questions that are coming out of mindfullness & is the painful inconvenient truth of the matter.  This is the start of someone waking up to their own part in the collective footprint.

The first & most vital point is that chemicals are killing us & the planet.  The earth, the sun, the air & the rain/water, has provided for organic existence for millions of years.  What can we do about this?  We dictate, by what we spend our money on, consumer demand.  If we stop buying & using chemicals, the money hungry corporations will divert production to more natural lines; because we demanded so!

Skin Kiss products are chemical free.  The use of plastic bottles is a decision we did not make lightly.  The SUN CARE range in particular, for practicle reasons, needed to be in a plastic form, as many public pools don’t allow glass & for the beach, plastic works better.  All our plastics used are PET which is fully recycled & environentally more sound.  In a perfect world there would also be no plastic.  We prefer to make what is contained in the packaging ethical & pure for you.

PURE & ACTIVE products: don’t waste a drop!

I grew up being reminded that there are starving humans in the world.  I had to eat everything on my plate with gratitude, even if I coudn’t stand the food in front of me & was as full as a goog!!!  Despite me hating this as a child, I am grateful to my parents who instilled this mindfulness in me!

With this habit I can’t waste anything.  The Skin Kiss range is no different.  The products are so full of active ingredients you can extend the product & save money doing so!

TIP on how to-Extend the life & increase the value of your lovely lotion/oil

When you can’t squeeze anymore SKIN KISS out of the bottle, add a little pure water & shake well. Even at this dilution you will get lovely hydration from the emulsion you’ve just created out of mindfulness. It works because of the high concentration of active ingredients abundant in each product. It is a shame to waste the goodness clinging to the sides of the bottle.

The KISS principle of keeping it simply sublime, is also about the old tradition of waste not want not!  Be in the moment and be mindful that whatever we throw away may still be of value.

The act of GRACE is to love even the last drop of your crème & to reuse a container or thoughtfully recycle it.

Everything is a cycle – let’s be part of the natural rhythm of life by also dedicating time in reflection to the moments when things apparently have not further use. Nothing ends, but everything moves on to the next phase.

Thank you

The gift of graciousness is a rare and beautiful quality that has a profound effect on everyone it touches. Graciousness means that whatever you do in life, you always consider the feelings of others.  Graciousness means that you act with GRACE and consideration in everything you do.
