Not All Skin Care Products are Made the Same
Kiwiglow is very different to lotion ( It is SO much better :)
We use absolutely NO synthetic ingredients in the creation of our products.
There is a small transition switching from lotion to oil, our oils absorb immediately, a little goes a long way so not only will your skin stay hydrated ALL day, Kiwiglow will last twice as long as any lotion.
All our moisturizing oils are great for tattoos, keeping them hydrated and bright, however 'kavai' our tattoo care moisturizer is infused with vetiver essential oil which has profound benefits for the skin and reduces fading of the inks.
The average person consumes four pounds of toxins each year through their skin. Much of these toxins come from commercially produced skin care products. Our bodies are basically a big sponge with no filters, absorbing the elements around us. Most topical applications go directly into the blood stream. I’m sure you wouldn’t consciously eat poison. So, why would you put it on your skin?
Modern industrial methods process seeds into oil by employing hexane, a powerful and nasty solvent that is used along with extreme heat of 450F degrees to fully extract the oils from nuts and seeds. These results are used commercially as the base for skincare lotions, creams and oils. Trace amounts of hexane are often left in the extracted oil. To make matters worse, the heating process removes the natural micronutrients from the seeds and changes the molecules of the oils to an abnormal configuration–one that happens to be poisonous! This is before they add all the synthetic ingredients.
kiwi glow is Sesame Seasoned to Perfection
This divine oil has been derived from sesame seeds since before recorded history, and is renowned for its healing properties and benefits for the body and mind.
Continuing scientific research shows that the antioxidants and polyunsaturated fats present in sesame oil contribute to controlling blood pressure.
Sesame oil is a natural antioxidant, as it actually removes harmful toxins from the skin as it’s absorbed. It neutralizes 'oxygen radicals' which are thought to be a major factor in the aging of the skin. How fantastic is that? Sesame oil also has an abundance of natural vitamin E, B-complex and vitamin A, which helps nourish and rejuvenate skin. Along with all this, Kiwiglow moisturizing body and tattoo oils feel so lovely on your skin they are addictive. What more could you ask for in a natural skin moisturizer?
Getting Pressed For a Better Solution
Along with using only organic seeds we cold-press them the old-fashioned way. The downside to this method is that it takes 10x longer, making it more costly and we end up with less oil. The plus side is that the oils retain their natural aroma, and more importantly, their nutritional value, which is the main point of using skin oils in the first place! And, it is so worth the wait. We love it as we are left with nature’s goodness! Moisturizing oils that leave you luminous and hydrated with silky smooth skin :)
A message from Ana, creator of kiwi gloW
Hello, my name is Ana and I was born in the most magnificent country in the South Pacific called New Zealand.
Some of the most hard core tree huggers are born on this land and I am proud to be one of them.
I am the 'kiwi' in Kiwiglow, there is no fruit. (New Zealanders are fondly referred to as 'kiwi's')
I now reside in the mountains of NC , I love it here and feel so blessed to have 2 homes.
There is so much information and contradictions in the world right now, these are some very interesting times we are living in.
We must take control of our own health and educate ourselves. Read labels and ingredients, google those long words.
What goes on your body, goes IN your body. Studies are only just discovering all the negative health issues related to topical lotions and sunscreens. Thankfully, people are waking up to this and there is such a wonderful selection of natural products on the market.
Do your body and health a favor and start making more natural skincare choices.
When you use Kiwiglow moisturizing oils, know that you are putting only goodness onto your precious skin.
Thanks so much for visiting and I trust you love your Kiwiglow. With love — Ana Robinson
