Why do we need to take care of our skin?
The skin is a phenomenal part of our bodies that work’s hard at taking care of us. The skin has natural oils and healing properties to ensure that your skin is kept healthy. However it is very vulnerable to the outside environment. Unfortunately our skin is exposed daily to pollutants in the air and in our water, which often contains harsh chemicals such as chlorine, fluoride and various carbons. These pollutants dry out the skin of its natural oils and block up our pores of which our skin needs to breathe and to release unwanted toxins in the body. Even activities such as drinking alcohol and smoking dehydrate and age the skin. Sun exposure too can damage the skin, however only if the exposure is excessive. Our skin does require a certain amount of sunlight each day to receive its dose of Vitamin D.
Considering that our skin does already have amazing healing properties and its own natural oils, Back2Nature’s products are perfectly designed to encourage our natural oils and healing properties to get back to work, also giving it a great head start through all the nourishing and healing properties of the natural ingredients in our products.
Our skin is the largest most exposed organ on or body and therefore deserves just as much love and care for what we put into our bodies. Where we consider our products healthy food for the skin.
Who can use Back 2 Nature products?
Being a range of natural, simplistic products, Back2Nature's range is suitable for all skin types, ages, male or female. Considering that there are no chemical preservatives in any of our products, there is no major concern for any chemical sensitivity, unless you are allergic to nuts or soy?
Why NO Plastic?
I think we all know the answer to this.. Plastic is one of the worst things that ever happened to our environment. It's a toxic pollutant, resource exploiter and a major threat to our oceans, soil and all wildlife. So Back 2 Nature is doing our best to avoid using plastic packaging where ever possible. So that is why you see that all products are in glass jars or metal tins, even our toothpaste! Unfortunately some of our lids to the glass jars are plastic, however the search is on for a better alternative. Great news is too, that most of our glass jars are actually made locally through Consol, reducing our carbon footprint that one step further.
Why do we not allow for international orders?
If you are with us on our Back 2 Nature store, yet you are elsewhere in the world other than South Africa, it is not that we do not want your support to purchase our products, it is rather that Back 2 Nature would like to encourage LOCAL shopping. It is one of the most important things to being a conscious consumer, ensuring you support talented local businesses, most importantly reducing your carbon footprint by avoiding jet setting products around the world.
