Read the latest blog post I've written for Formula Botanica here:
Let's focus on probable and possible carcinogens found in skincare and forget about all other certain pollutants and carcinogens in our everyday life

Ladies and gentlemen: this is the ingredient you have been waiting for for a long time. The ingredient that is going to replace both symbiosolv XC and symbiosolv clear. We've been testing it during the last months and we're proud to announce it is still our favourite among all available "natural" solubilizers on the market.
We're out of Symbiosolv XC and would not re-stock it anymore. We still have a small stock of Symbiosolv clear and have reduced its price for those of you ...who want to practice and make some sample formulations with it.
And here we go (drum roll): meet Symbiosolv clear puls, the new natural solubilizer blend. I'm publishing my first tutorial with this solubilizer in a few hours. Keep an eye on this page:
Just a reminder that our last shipping day would be Thursday the 28th of September before we make a break for two weeks. If there is anything you badly need please make sure your orders are paid till Wednesday noon (CEST)
The mainstream industry still doesn't know what to do with "natural" cosmetics. At one side, they are convinced natural ingredients are useless and good-for-nothing (add this to all other objections such as inherent colour and scent and a much shorter shelf-life compared to synthetic ingredients) and at the other side they want to have a share from this huge market. This happens when an industry expert writes something about "natural" ingredients for readers who are industry experts themselves. A ridiculous and non-cohesive collection of meaningless sentences and research abstracts: http://www.happi.com/…/natural-essential-oils-in-skin-care…/
As much as we love natural ingredients and certain essential oils, there are some endangered species that we keep our hands away from
"The Justice Department announced that Young Living pleaded guilty to illegal trafficking of rosewood oil and spikenard oil in violation of the Lacey Act and th...e Endangered Species Act. They pleaded guilty and were sentenced to “a fine of $500,000, $135,000 in restitution, a community service payment of $125,000 for the conservation of protected species of plants used in essential oils, and a term of five years’ probation with special conditions.”
Customers who have ordered moringa oil before 18th Sept:
The INCI name on the bottle label is wrong (shame on copy & paste). Please swap the label with this one:
Moringa seed oil
Moringa oleifera seed oil (INCI)
Lot: SCLMGB0029 Best Before:11/18
We are sorry for this mistake.
