Why Harmony Works?
“60% of external skincare products are absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin. They should be enjoyed with the same care as our breakfast cereal.”
Women’s Health Magazine, issue of April 2006
Cosmetic products contain a wide variety of toxic chemicals that, clinically proven, can cause cancer, tumors, skin irritation and many different skin conditions. With approximately two square meters of skin, it is important that you have no synthetic chemical substances, preservatives, aggressive cleaning substances or other harmful toxic content in what you put on your skin. My personal goal is to provide you with the most natural and freshly produced skin and body care products.
How fresh is “fresh”, and are your cosmetic products truly handmade?
Production takes place on a semi-weekly basis. I also do not outsource my production, everything is made by hand in our production facility.
Is there really no animal testing regarding your skin and body care?
I love animals and do not want to support anything that causes suffering to animals. For this reason, none of my formulas are tested on animals (all ingredients used are food grade and do not require testing while chemical ingredients need to be tested). My organic raw materials are sourced from suppliers with the same philosophy.
Why are antioxidants so important?
Every second, the condition of our body slowly deteriorates. Free radicals caused by the sun, smog, radiation, nicotine and more attack our bodies and may be responsible for signs of aging, wrinkles, and sometimes even cancer. Only antioxidants protect us and ward off these harmful free radicals. Our skin needs antioxidants to protect it from premature aging.
There are no synthetic preservatives included in your handmade body and skincare. How long do your products last when they are open?
On each product, you will see a symbol with an hourglass and an expiry date when used under normal conditions. The number tells you how long you can use this product. However, if you place your product in extreme temperatures or direct sunlight, I assume no liability or guarantees. Instead of chemical preservatives, I use natural plant-based preservatives, and antibacterial herbs such as Thyme, Oregano, Goldenseal, Rosemary, Lavender, and highly concentrated Vitamins and Antioxidants to ensure the preservation of all my products.
As with any product, check the scent on a regular basis – if it smells bad, toss it out immediately!
What does Harmony Works mean and are your cosmetics good for sensitive skin?
Cosmetic products contain many toxic chemicals that, clinically proven, can cause cancer, tumors, skin irritation and many different skin conditions. The products of Harmony Works are kept as natural as possible. Meaning I don’t use aggressive cleansing substances or other harmful toxins making them ideal for sensitive skin. Truly “harmony” for your skin.
What about warm temperatures?
Extreme temperatures can take place during the summer months. The conditions inside a transport vehicle can reach over 40°C while in transit which can result in a discoloration of oils, butters, and waxes. This has no negative effect on the ingredients or efficacy.
There are some products that are more delicate and cannot withstand these shipping conditions and are not shipped during the summer months. These products are excluded from our selection.
I have previously ordered a product that is not showing up in your current product selection– what can I do?
Should you wish to receive a body or skincare product that has temporarily been excluded due to the summer heat, arrangements can be made. Please email me at [email protected] and I will do my best to find a solution for you.
