A New Attitude to Skincare
When we focus our attention on leading healthy lifestyles, we fuel our bodies with nutrients and food products that are as fresh, organic and as sustainably produced as possible. Eating for the health and sustainable-conscious is becoming far more readily accessible. But how do we approach our skincare? Just what are we putting onto our bodies and how many synthetic chemicals are sneaking into our beauty products? We cut out additives and processed foods, but how many of us are conscious of the unnatural substances in our skincare? With the rise of veganism and sustainability, there has been more of a drive towards organic, non-toxic and natural beauty products, but to what extent are we buying into this and how effective actually are they?
As a nutritionist and herbalist, I have always been shocked by the number of toxic and unnatural ingredients in so many of our go-to skincare products and brands (no naming names!). Yet I was struggling with where to turn for natural skincare products that actually worked for my skin. Until I discovered Ringana!
Founded in 1996 by Andreas Wilfinger, Ringana provide sustainable, ethical, natural skincare and whole food supplements. They have developed a completely new departure in the area of skin care: skin care that is fresh. How do they achieve this? Their products have an expiry date - proof of absolute freshness. To ensure this, they use highly sensitive secondary plant protection substances, with absolutely no artificial preservatives or genetically modified raw materials. These standardised raw materials (whose high levels of active substances are verified) are intensive and therefore extremely effective.
Something that is also very important to me is that Ringana always act in an environmentally-friendly and ethical manner; from their purchasing of raw materials through to their vegan production and packaging return concept. I love the fact I can return the bottles once I am finished with them instead of throwing them away and feeling wasteful.
