  • What does it mean to bio hack skin and body

    What does it mean to bio hack skin and body

    The human body is a wonderful source of regenerative energy, and when we feel our best, we tend to excel in life and function at an optimum level. This invigorates our innate ability to weather the stresses of modern life and the way our bio-systems handle pressure – which ultimately affects the condition of our skin and organs. Empowering this stress-busting capability and making use of its full range of potential is key for ultimate health, which explains why biohacking – lifestyle changes that ‘hack’ your body to be more susceptible to energetic flow, recovery, healing and balance – can be so transformative.

  • Is your skin care free from heavy metals? Our chelation process.

    Is your skin care free from heavy metals? Our chelation process.

    Chelating agents are used in cosmetic formulations to bind metals and to help them pass through the body. Africology uses Sodium Phytate, which is a white, odour-free powder that is easily/readily water soluble. It is used as a chelate/cheating agent to boost the antimicrobial activity of preservatives, improve the efficacy of antioxidants, and stabilize products against the effects of metal contamination.

    We use it as metals can enter a cosmetic formulation from production equipment, as well as unavoidable impurities from ingredients (e.g. extracts, pigments) and from processing water. 

    Our chelation is used in combination with typical antioxidants (tocopherol, ascobyl palmitate) to ensure that metals do not oxidise in the body.

  • Aromatherapy

    Aromatherapy

    Aromatherapy has been used for centuries for spiritual and medicinal purposes by healers, mothers and religious leaders. Essential oils are the fragrant parts of a plant which have properties that can help us physically and emotionally. The most popular way to apply these oils is through massage, and this increases the effects of the oils by greatly relaxing body and mind. Essential oils can also be used in a number of other ways and still produce great benefits, such as in the bath or in a vaporiser. Africology uses this concept and creates formulations that contain natural plant extracts that work in synergy with essential oils in each individual product.

    Celebrating Inner Beauty

    This Women's Day, we're inspired by the words of Audrey Hepburn, who said that a woman's true beauty is reflected in her soul. The wisdom that we gain with age is an immense source of inner stability and for each of us, there comes a time when we team to let go of the ties that bind our souls - when we free ourselves from ego and self-sabotaging notions of right and wrong. It's when we finally step into our own light, and away from external demands that threaten our authenticity.
