Skincare Products,”Which Ones Work “













How  many times do we get talked into buying skincare products because some slick talking sales person, or a very good marketing campaign lead us to believe they were the answer to all our skin  concerns.
Whether it is an aging issue, acne or Rosacea,very few skincare and Anti Ageing skincare ranges work, due to a number of factors.
When our diet is poor and our body is toxic due to years of abuse due to chemical laden foods and chemical riddled beauty products, accompanied by too much sun, an impenetrable wall covers our skin and very few ingredient can  reach the lower layers

.Active ingredients in these products cannot penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, doing what they were designed to do.
The other issue we are up against is the quality of the ingredients, along with the synergy of the formula. The right combination along with a few top ingredients can do wonders for our skin.
Finding a handful that change to skins appearance while making a positive  difference  to the skins well being, is  like winning the Lottery .

We are all different and our skin can react, even with the organic ranges, finding one that suits you can take time, I have discovered a few special ranges, all different, but at the same time,all high in quality.
It took me years of researching to find formulas that do work. Some come from our smaller companies. They not only care, but they need to go that one step further to stand out from the larger Skincare brands.

I recently discovered a range from Sydney Australia. The  Life2Skin range by Aldo Virtich, it is of the highest quality, and the ingredients are organic. For those of you whom understand energy and vibration, then this range it at the top of the scale.
There is also a new breed of Anti Ageing skin care ingredients, some come from the ocean and others from the land.
all these are known to activate Stem cells. Fucoidan is one such product, it is extracted from various varieties  of kelp. But like many other poor quality ingredients , very few i found stacked up. those that did were included in my book.

WALA Heilmittel GmbH has been developing natural preparations since 1935. In the early days of its history, it was considered avant-garde and pioneering in a society that was barely even aware of natural preparations. Speedy technical solutions seemed to have ousted coherent thinking.

But this was not the case everywhere. Anthroposophical doctors were one of the main groups to enthusiastically seize upon Rudolf Hauschka’s procedure for producing natural medicines without using alcohol as a preservative. The demand for his preparations encouraged Hauschka to establish WALA in Ludwigsburg in 1935 and open subsidiaries in Vienna and London shortly afterwards. Following a ban by the National Socialists and the imprisonment of Dr. Hauschka and his future wife Dr. Margarethe Stavenhagen, WALA relocated several times before finally establishing itself in Bad Boll/Eckwälden in 1950 – where it still remains today.

Complementary skin care

For many years, Rudolf Hauschka considered launching his own skin care range to complement the medicines range – a kind of extension of the preparations to maintain healthy skin. However, his ideas only became a reality when he met Vienna-born Elisabeth Sigmund, who ordered preparations from WALA for her self-developed skin care products. The cosmetologist, who was at the time living in Stockholm, travelled to Eckwälden and worked with the medicine experts to develop recipes for facial care products that already complied with today’s standards for natural skin care products. They jointly developed solutions for stable cream bases without chemical/synthetic emulsifiers and created fragrance mixes with natural essential oils.
