New Product. Eternal Serenity Face Oil Debuts

EternalSerenity005Wahoo!!! Eternal Serenity Face Oil finally makes its debut.  I’ve been using it for awhile and have to admit am completely loving it (I know I say this with all my products, and while it could be a sales pitch, it’s not!  If I test something and it’s not working, and I don’t love it – I make it again and certainly don’t keep using it or make it sell.  If I don’t love it then don’t expect anyone else to either – so I am both the critic and guinea pig of all testing :)).

While I was moving I ran out and didn’t have it with me for over a month and the difference was significant –  so glad to have settled in, finishing my first new batch and having my skin is back to its natural healthy glowing, soft self – which is why I am so thrilled to now have the opportunity to share it with you all.

It’s made up of the same  Comfrey Infused Blend that is also used in my other products, however the difference is in the additional oils which are just heaven for the skin;

Hemp oil is pure food for the skin, Regenerates and Rejuvenates the skin’s protective layer, thanks to its high levels of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, it has a composition similar to skin lipids, which makes it an great natural emollient and moisturiser.

Argan oil is extremely rich in nutrients including fatty acids and vitamin E.  It softens, hydrates, reducing wrinkles by restoring elasticity and has an anti-oxidant effect. On top of that it also helps to heal acne and reduce inflammation

Red Raspberry Seed oil is especially protective of the skin, shielding it from UV-B and UV-C rays as well as infrared. It is also anti-inflammatory due to high content of alpha linolenic acid and phytosterols therefore helpful for eczema and psoriasis and has anti-ageing benefits thanks to it’s anti-oxidant properties.

And the essential oils used are also particularly great for the skin in how the tone, embalm, even out the skin tone, calm and EternalSerenity006smooth out the skin too.  Our skin is our first contact point to the world, it’s important what we put on it, and these ingredients are pure nutrients for the skin.

Anyone interested in trying some, to celebrate it’s debut feel free to use the discount code SERENE  for a 20% off, valid for the next 2 weeks. Find it in my shop here.

Being Sustainable, as a Small Business

Being sustainable can mean a lot of things, so I just wanted to cover what it means for us at Soulsong Avalon, as it is a fundamental part of our philosophy:

Conscious living is to look after what we have.  We have one body/ mind/ spirit/ planet – and it merits our Care, Love and Appreciation.”

And for us, at Soulsong Avalon being sustainable means: Making sure all decisions made have a positive impact on the earth, community, customers and self, by using;

  • Recycled labels, brochures, paper
  • Glass jars/ bottles which is better for the products, and can be reused or recycled
  • Quality Organic to local ingredients
  • Smaller local suppliers

Being Financially sustainable, providing;

  • Prices are affordable for customers
  • Prices that are sustainable for us as a small business

So these are what we keep it in mind with all the everyday decisions we make.

Recently I had to choose whether to go with vinyl labels for my oils as they are more durable, and yet we went for the paper – as it’s more biodegradable. Such small decisions, and yet each decision big or small can have a lasting impact.

All of us make these decisions everyday, and they help and do have an impact, we have the choice to cut down on plastic, packaging, organic food, recycling and so much more.  The more we can support our values with the choices we make, the more we can support a larger overall change in the way things are done, for ourselves, the community and the world we live in.

CocoPureAnd on that note would also like to introduce two new local suppliers, with top quality products:

Cocopure for the delicious Coconut oil, which can be found in Bedouin’s Charm: Body Oil.
Made in Hemp, for the rich Organic Hemp Oil, found in our soon to be released Eternal Serenity.
