Aroma & Therapy
The story behind Aroma & Therapy.
The idea of creating the Aroma & Therapy online natural & organic handmade soap stemmed from a fulfilling nursing career working with Dermatologists. Many of the clients we treated suffered from a range of skin irritations and conditions that may have been avoided if chemical soaps and detergents were not used. Our skin is considerably porious and absorption of unwanted chemicals can be reduced with knowledge and care.
A study published in the American Journal of Public Health looked into the skin’s absorption rates of chemicals found in drinking water. It showed that the skin absorbed an average of 64% of total contaminant dosage. Other studies found the face to be several times more permeable than broad body surfaces and an absorption rate of 100% for underarms and genitalia.
It is easy to see that what we use on our skin ends up inside our bodies. So it is important to pay close attention to the ingredients in our skin care products. If the products you use contain harmful ingredients such as harsh, toxic chemicals, colors, and fragrances, those ingredients make their way into your body, your blood and lymphatic system. The majority of mainstream body care products contain a cocktail of carcinogenic chemicals, allergens, and irritants.
Taken from Down to Earth Organic & Natural.
Since we launched our website we have noticed a shift in the way people are becoming more conscious and concerned about the everyday chemicals that clever marketing hides in product labels. Greedy money driven companies have for years take advantage of the fact that most consumers don’t take the time to read the tiny print on labels that are often written in a language too hard to pronounce let alone understand. However, the consumer is becoming more aware and demand quality skincare products with more transparency towards their ingredients. Aroma & Therapy makes an eco skincare range of soaps that are free from artificial soap hardeners, artificial lathering agents, artificial colours, nasty preservatives, phalates and a host of other chemicals that need Googling to understand.
In particular, we do not use animal milk which contains animal fat. Animal milk contain bacteria. To reduce the bacteria, the milk is pasturized and in the process, nutritional value is reduced or destroyed. Aroma & Therapy only uses natural, extra virgin olive oils, plantation palm oils that are RSPO Certified, (does not impact on Orangutan communities) natural oils and vegetable butters, Kaoilin clays for colour and essential oils for fragrance. Some of our high end soaps may contain synthetic fragrance that has been fully tested and approved by the International Fragrance Association.
Unaware of the damage manifesting over continued use, people continued to smother their skin with a glut of skin damaging chemicals that they are being misled to believe are safe medicated skincare cleaner, cream or moisturiser. My family could see a need for a quality skincare soap that contains only the freshest natural and organic ingredients.
