Beautiful Wisdom

Uniquely New Zealand: Living Nature uses  New Zealand’s unique native manuka honey and botanicals healing plants. Over 80% of New Zealand’s plants are found nowhere else in the world. It is these rare plants that form the basis of the exceptional Living Nature skincare, bodycare, haircare and cosmetic collections.

Living Nature is Certified Natural by the German-based BDIH who sets some of the most rigorous standards worldwide for naturalness. BDIH extend far beyond the ingredients, taking into account the environmental impact of sourcing raw materials and production, how the ingredients are handled, genetic modification and consumers’ expectations. The standards also ban the use of radioactive radiation to disinfect the ingredients and end products, hence no harmful radiation residues and protect the potency of botanical ingredients.

True beauty is sustainable, reflecting ones respect for the people and environment. Without this understanding, beauty is only skin deep.

Decode the beautiful claims

We tend to assume that our skincare is hazard free. Almost every skincare product on the market today describes itself as natural or pure. It is today’s marketing buzzword and it sells. Any one of these “natural” products may contain more than 20 types of hazardous chemicals. It may be misleading, but it is not illegal. Man-made chemicals do not care for the skin, they pollute the skin just as they pollute the air and the environment.

Among hundreds and hundreds of skin and body care brands, only a handful is genuinely organic, wild crafted, GE free and preserved without artificial interference. Many products use synthetic enzyme inhibitors such as parabens to preserve; this means that, once applied, skin is effectively inhibited from carrying out normal functions. The symtoms may be temporarily comforted, while the cause marches on.

Our skin is the largest living organ of our body and many cancer-causing chemicals can be absorbed through our skin into the bloodstream. Researches show that twice as much toxic chemicals can enter our body through skin as through the intestines.

Our skin needs nothing artificial.

At justlife, we believe in skincare good enough to eat. Each skincare product at justlife has gone thorough through evaluation to ensure every ingredients used are natural and eco-friendly, free from petrochemical derivatives, artificial fragrances, heavy metal, artificial preservatives and GMO. Our skincare products are carefully blended with precious vegetable oils and botanical extracts of unique medicinal plants with skin healing properties.

WE ban parabens!

It is estimated that 99% of all cosmetic and skincare products including some organic brands, contain some form of the paraben preservatives (methyl paraben, propyl paraben and their derivatives).

There’s no doubt that these preservative system used by most skincare companies are very effective. They stop all enzyme activities happening in the product therefore it doesn’t spoil. Unfortunately, this preservative action continues when the product is applied on your skin. It is then absorbed into your skin, taking up by your blood stream and finishes up in your major organs. The preservative action is so stable that it continues to work while inside your body, limiting the normal enzyme activity of the body and creating cellular problems.

How do we know this? Autopsies done on cancerous tumours have shown residues of methyl-, ethyl-, butyl- and propylparabens, and the only way these could have been introduced is through the use of skincare and cosmetic products.
