Eat Apply Repeat: a new beauty mantra?
Updated: Mar 29, 2020
We are sure you know this already but emphasising again can really do no harm! Our skin is the largest organ in the body, comprising about 10–15% of body weight. It helps protect the body from dangers such as ultraviolet rays, pollution and infections, and it constantly renews itself (the outermost layer, the epidermis, remakes itself every month). To do all of that your skin requires a constant flow of energy and nutrients.
While there is a growing awareness of the need to use pure and organic ingredients on our skin, at COCOरियल our only standard for purity is an ingredient list that is not only good enough to eat but literally the best thing to eat as well. “It is now becoming more and more understood that skincare is treated both in and out and sometimes by the same ingredients,” Priscilla Tsai, the founder of a natural product brand. The health & appearance of your skin is a direct reflection on your emotional & physical health, your diet, your lifestyle and your environment and we at COCOरियल take this very seriously. We try to do well by our bodies and the environment as much as possible but with it we make allowances for a real life too. A Pizza or a drink aren’t really “indulgences” these are just moments that can make a week more pleasurable, a night out with friends more fun. What we are really getting at is this: We like to have the information that we need to make our own choices. Sometimes those decisions revolve around treating our bodies with super clean meals and sometimes those decisions revolve around fries. But really it’s about choice and controlling what we use and what we chose not to.
So what does this have to do with skin deep beauty? It has everything to do with beauty. Depending on the chemical, 60% to 70% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into your body. Paraben additives sit on top of the skin and don't allow anything to absorb. Our bodies don't know what to do with synthetic chemicals that are absorbed and they end up stored in our fat cells or lymph tissue - potentially causing damage in time. We all deserve to know what’s in our products so we can choose whether to use them or not. We believe in clean, nontoxic skincare at COCOरियल where we make our oil with love, scientific backing & complete transparency which we want to bring out to the larger public with the message of loving yourself for the real you with real and natural ingredients. We speak for complete wellness and we are willing to take this journey with you be it your skin, your hair , your body or your mind, we will be there through out the way. Making this world a better place for everyone!
