Huni Skin Care

Huni Skincare is finally here! This week Naturisimo launches Huni skin care, from the Paengaroa-based company Comvita which used its Manuka honey expertise to develop Huni natural skincare range.

UMF® (Unique Manuka Factor) is a scientific measure of the special properties found in active Manuka honey. This type of honey was chosen for moisturising properties. Huni offers women a natural skincare range that utilises the strong natural benefits of UMF® Manuka honey to minimise the first visible signs of aging. Huni is not just good for your skin, but good for the environment too. The natural ingredients we use are from sustainable sources and free from parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate detergents, artificial colours and genetically-modified plant materials. I tried the Huni Every Day Moisturiser and Huni Every Night Moisturiser. Both have a similar sweet aroma but the night cream is a bit richer. There is no doubt that Manuka Honey does work wonders, my skin was left very soft. I can’t wait to try the Huni soap and Huni body lotion next week!

Watch out for Huni sample sachets, they will be available very shortly. The Huni skin care line is now available at Naturisimo The Organic Skincare Company.

Suncoat Nail Care

Suncoat Natural Nail Care is launching this week at Naturisimo. It’s so exciting to add a new collection of natural nail care products and a new range of natural mineral cosmetics. Suncoat was founded by Liu Yingchun, an organic chemistry/biochemistry doctor and it offers a complete line of water-based nail polish products as well as natural mineral cosmetics. I have tested the Natural Nail Polish in Sienna using the Suncoat Natural Nail Top Coat to protect the polish. It claims to be the best water-based nail polish available today and it certainly does the job, no chipping at all after a few days. The Suncoat nail polish remover did a good job and amazingly contains no artificial chemicals. I also tried the Suncoat Natural Mascara and it certainly did not smudge for me, a concern that I always have with natural and organic mascaras. The Suncoat cosmetics range is available at Naturisimo now for dispatch on 22nd May.

Natural Sun Protection

The potential risks of conventional sun creams - the release of harmful compounds which could possibly cause skin cancer and premature ageing, according to a recent study by the University of California - are making a growing number of people turn to 'natural' sunscreens, which work by reflecting UV radiation off the skin like a mirror.

These past days have been idea to put some of our natural and organic sun creams to test. I used the Weleda SPF20 Edelweiss Sun Cream (£5.85). It contains Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide (natural minerals), plus extracts of edelweiss (an Alpine flower that 'thrives under the intense mountain sun and protects against the effects of UV radiation'). This Weleda sun cream has a good texture, is not too greasy or cloying, and has a light, pleasant fragrance. If you want a more sophisticated organic sun protection for body, the Juice Beauty Body Lotion SPF20 smells divine with organic green apple and lemongrass extract and it is a fabulous body cream, too.

For my face is used Juice Beauty SPF30 Sheer Moisturiser (£24.95) because I wanted a higher SPF factor. The Juice Beauty cream offers antiageing organic ingredients and it does not give the ‘white’ look that some natural sun creams do. Finally the Lavera Sun Lip Balm SPF15 (£3.95) was perfect with organic jojoba it protects against UVA, UVB and UVC rays.

A wide choice of facial natural sun cream and body natural sun creams are available at Naturisimo The Organic Skincare Company.

Natural Nail Care

Discover Elysambre natural nail care. From the company that brought you the first Ecocert certified organic make up, Elysambre offers a nail care solution formulated with natural minerals and free from toxic chemicals. Elysambre nail varnish and bases are paraben free, toluene free, formaldehyde free and rosin free.

I have tried Elysambre nail varnish in Pearly Burgundy. I then applied the Elysambre Double Action Base for a hard, durable, chip-free finish. The results were similar to those of a conventional nail polish but with no foul odors, no toxic chemicals, and no damage to my nails or to the environment. Stay tuned for the upcoming Suncoat natural nail products, claiming to be the most natural nail care available today.

Elysambre organic cosmetics are available from Naturisimo The Organic Skincare Company.

Madara Skin Care

MADARA is a completely natural flower and herb skincare for facial and body care launching this month at Naturisimo. MADARA is the Latvian name of the most fragile, most delicate and also the most fragrant flower of the Baltic meadows. Made in Latvia, a country with pristine and pure natural resources with potent natural active plant ingredients and no artificial chemicals, these products have a delicate texture and aroma. I am loving the Madara Moon Flower Tinted Moisturiser. It is light and blends well, it has a slight simmer so it leaves my skin with a natural glow. Its aroma is floral and delicate and natural minerals for some SPF protection, too. I also enjoyed the Madara Deep Moisture Cream and Madara Flower Dust Body Lotion which is simmery and adds a golden layer of shimmer to your skin, ideal for Spring.

Juice Beauty Offers

The Juice Beauty Green Apple Hydrating mask has just landed in the UK so I could not wait to try it. I applied a generous layer to my entire face and neck after cleanser. Left it for up 10 minutes, then rinsed. The brightening and replenishing effect was inmediate in my complexion but the question was: would it last? I followed with Juice Beauty Green Apple serum and Juice Beauty Green Apple SPF15 moisturizer for a full treatment. After a day of meetings in London, I could still see the effects when I was back home. I will definitely be using again as a bi-weekly treatment.
The Juice Beauty Green Apple Hydrating mask and Juice Beauty organic skincare range is available from Naturisimo The Organ
ic Skincare Company.

SPECIAL OFFER: Naturisimo is offering a FREE Juice Beauty SPF15 Tinted Lip Moisturiser (Delighful Raspberry colour) valued £5.95 with all purchases of any two Juice Beauty products (excluding samples). Enter voucher code 'NATJUICE08' at checkout to receive your free product.

Offer closes 15th June 2008 at midnight or until stock ends.
