Aromatherapy essential oils should be avoided for the first four months & thereafter can be extremely helpful & provide relief to symptoms (fluid retention, stress, muscle aches), especially in pregnancy massage performed by a certified practitioner or therapist. Do not use essential oils directly on the skin during pregnancy. Essential oils to be avoided during pregnancy are: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme. It is always advisable to consult your medical, health or certified aromatherapy practitioner for advice on product use in pregnancy.
ECO.Vitamin C Serum contains 2% Vitamin C in the form of Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate. An oil soluble form of Vitamin C, able to penetrate oils (or lipids) as well as water for deeper penetration into the skins layers. It also does not sting on application, as it does not require a low pH to penetrate. It is also a stable form of Vitamin C, therefore works as antioxidant long after you apply & has a longer shelf life. Even though the percentage seems low at 2% this form of Vitamin C is active & combines with other effective ingredients in the serum to deliver results.
ECO. Vitamin A serum contains .5% Retinol. Retinol is a whole form of the Vitamin A molecule. This is one of the most active forms of Vitamin A obtainable over the counter & a potent antioxidant. Vitamin A is naturally found in our body & contributes to healthy vision, bones, immune function & healthy functioning skin. It is a direct skin cell communicator, so vital to “normalize” cell function. It communicates to a skin cell to behave like a young, healthy functioning cell & therefore addresses many skin conditions & concerns; pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity & acne. The overall appearance of the skin is improved. It is not advisable to use Retinol in pregnancy.
We are unable to recommend essential oils for ingestion due to Australian Consumer Law. Their many benefits for health & well being may be enjoyed by vaporizing, adding to massage oil or bath, or sprinkled on the floor of the shower.
Our essential oils are sourced from countries where the plant material grows best climatically & seasonally and that contain the best active constituents to perform accordingly to the high standards we set.
