Women’s Bath Special

Benefits of bathing

Whilst most houses these days are built with only showers, we know that many of you still enjoy a good soak in the tub! I mean, who doesn’t enjoy a long, hot bubble bath? Baths are a wonderful way to relax and release the tension and stress of your day. They help to soothe tired and achy muscles, and help you to reset your clock, and nourish your skin.

Why you should exfoliate your skin

Believe it or not, we shed between 30 000 and 40 000 dead skin cells every minute! This is because our skin is constantly renewing itself. Exfoliation plays an extremely important role in your beauty care as it removes the dead and dry skin cells from the skin’s surface. This increases blood circulation and as a result, and restores your healthy glow. This is especially important after the skin has been exposed to the drying effects of the sun or a harsh, dry winter.

Enter Herbafrique…

Our special offer to you

We love putting together specials for our clients. And when we do so, we pair all-natural products that work well together giving you, and your skin the best care we have to offer.

Our Women’s Bath Special undeniably fits the bill as you get:

  • 1kg Sea Crystals in your choice of fragrance.
  • 250g  Rosemary Body Scrub.
  • 300ml Skin Softener.

Individually these products would cost R347. Here you get all three products for R300, you save R47 (13%)! This special is available whilst stocks last, so get yours now.

Directions on how to use these products together:

  1. Soak in these healing Herbafrique Sea Crystals to soften water and open pores. Your fragrance choices include Rose, Lavender, Calendula, Herbs & Spices, and Rooibos Cinnamon and Honey.
  2. Add water to the Rosemary Body Scrub exfoliator to make a paste and apply to skin. Wait 5 minutes to allow it to penetrate and disinfect the skin, before giving your skin a good polish!
  3. Lastly, your skin with 100% natural Skin Softener Body Lotion. This luxurious Skin Softener body lotion is made of beeswax and olive oil and helps restore your skin’s moisture.

The Dangers of Chemicals in Skincare Products

chemicals-lab-face-products

Using natural products on your skin is your only option to protect yourself from harmful chemicals

In case you don’t already use our all-natural products (if you try them we know you’ll love them) and in case you aren’t aware, we want to highlight the reasons you should be choosing natural when it comes to anything you put into or onto your body.

The dangers of these chemicals are no longer considered controversial topics or even news. Parabens (methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben commonly used as a preservative), petrochemicals, pesticides, glyphosate, are just a few of the harmful chemicals that are found neatly tucked inside your easily available beauty products from well-known cosmetic houses. Even products labelled as ‘herbal’ or natural still contain these chemicals which are toxic to humans.

natural-face-cream-herbafrique

What do these chemicals do?

According to this article on Endocrine Disruptors by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences:

“A wide range of substances, both natural and man-made, are thought to cause endocrine disruption, including pharmaceuticals, dioxin and dioxin-like compounds, polychlorinated biphenyls, DDT and other pesticides, and plasticizers such as bisphenol A. Endocrine disruptors may be found in many everyday products– including plastic bottles, metal food cans, detergents, flame retardants, food, toys, cosmetics, and pesticides. NIEHS supports studies to determine whether exposure to endocrine disruptors may result in human health effects including lowered fertility and an increased incidence of endometriosis and some cancers. Research shows that endocrine disruptors may pose the greatest risk during prenatal and early postnatal development when organ and neural systems are forming.” 

This article “Weedkiller Glyphosate a ‘substantial’ cancer factor” appears on the BBC website and details findings from a lawsuit involving pharmaceutical company Bayer who owns the insecticide in question that contains glyphosate. RoundUp is a commonly used insecticide that is used on food crops throughout the world and these chemicals end up in our skincare products as well by way of the ingredients being tainted.

What can you do to avoid these chemicals?

Taking an interest in your health and what you use on your body is a great place to start. All you need to do is to be conscious of what products you buy by reading the ingredients on the labels thereby learning more about them.

Read your product labels

Don’t buy any product that has these names listed as ingredients:

  • Parabens – methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben (commonly used as a preservative)
  • 4-Methylbenzylidene camphor (4-MBC) (sunscreen lotions)
  • Benzophenone (sunscreen lotions)

Did you know?

Herbafrique has an excellent alternative to the usual sunscreens you find at the shops these days. Our 4 in 1 Sun Resque not only prepares your skin for the sun, but it’s also a sunscreen, after-sun soother and insect repellent all rolled into one.
