It is our belief at River Veda that high quality and organic can be synonymous; that skin care products should not only help you look good, they should be good for you. Too many of today's beauty products are filled with chemicals that we know little about and which we might want to avoid putting on our bodies.
The core element of the River Veda range is that our ingredients must be organic. They must derive from the natural world; from plants, herbs and flowers, rather than a laboratory. They must be natural and clean, easily recognized and accepted by the body.
In Ayurveda, there is an expression, "Every plant is a medicine". All of them carry ingredients which have powerful therapeutic benefits. Recent studies have shown that humans possess natural receptors for medicinal plants. Our bodies respond instinctively to them, welcoming the restorative, regenerative powers they possess.
Of course, different ingredients will bring different benefits. For example, Jojoba Seed Oil is very close in its molecular make-up to our natural skin sebum (an important component in the natural oil that coats the skin and protects it from bacterial infection). This resemblance means it is readily absorbed and gives it innate healing properties, helping to minimise fine lines and wrinkles, promote skin suppleness and assist in the rejuvenation of the skin.
On the other hand, something like Sweet Orange Essential Oil serves as a great mood enhancer; in fact, its often referred to as 'the happy essential oil'. It is wonderfully fragrant and has a calming effect when used topically, relieving stress and uplifting emotions. Sweet Orange also has strong anti-inflammatory properties, making it an excellent complement to an ingredient like Rosehip Oil when it comes to managing delicate skin.
The list of organic ingredients and the therapeutic benefits they possess is huge. We're fortunate we get to work with them and are acutely conscious of our responsibility to combine them in a way that delivers maximum satisfaction and therapeutic benefit.
