Actually, most plant-based skincare products are made or organic ingredients. Plantbased skincare products are made entirely from ingredients that are derived from plants such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, seeds, nuts, and herbs. So a good brand will want to use those plant-based ingredients from organic sources.

The organic plant extracts that we use to make our natural skincare products are grown in a controlled environment where they are not exposed to synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers.

To be sure that the plants used in your skincare are organic always check the label for an indication that the product contains a high percentage of ingredients derived from organic farming. We mark this percentage on many of our certified organic products and we are proud to say that some of our plant-based products are made with 100% organic ingredients.

The rise of plant based skincare brands is alive and well. In fact, the green beauty market is growing at an unbelievable pace – currently forecasted to be worth well over $48 billion by the year 2025.

  •     Antioxidant-rich plant-based skincare products work to restore and strengthen your body’s cells by combating free radicals (oxidants).
  •     The vitamins featured in plant-based skincare products are vital to maintaining the health of your skin. They also support cell repair and can help decrease signs of aging.
  •     Essential fats and acids offer a number of skin benefits such as helping to calm acne, fight dryness, combat oiliness, smooth scars, and increase skin elasticity.
  •     The word hydrocolloids may sound a little foreign, but these naturally occurring polymers give plant-based skincare products a natural texture without the need for harmful petrochemicals or other synthesized polymers.
  •     Naturally occurring lipids and esters help support the skin’s natural defense barrier to smooth, protect, and repair.  Such substances are often used as emollients and conditioning agents to keep skin healthy and hydrated.

Our skin is our largest organ. What we put on it plays a big role in our overall health and well-being. It’s important to seek out products that are clean and healthy for your body. This is where reading labels, understanding ingredients, and doing as much research as possible to know what’s inside the plant-based beauty products your purchasing and using on your skin is so important.

Raw vegan skincare goes even another step further. Raw vegan means a product doesn’t contain any vegan ingredient that has been processed, cooked or altered from its natural state. Basically, raw vegan enthusiasts believe ingredients lose their nutrients and enzymes if they are altered in any way. So that’s another thing to consider.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics create skincare and cosmetics products that use raw organic and vegan plants. High-quality, plant-sourced skincare ingredients can contribute to a clearer, healthier complexion. Whether you have a plant-sourced skincare routine or would like to transition to one, it’s important to understand what plant ingredients can do for you. Formulated to assist the body in calming the nervous system and enhancing the skin. This also assists in the regulation of the immune system. Plants heal. Phyto-Medicine is the future of health and skincare.

Each plant is like a natural pharmacy in its own right: plants are made up of thousands of different types of molecules that evolved right alongside us in nature, and for thousands of years they literally were our medicine.  The difference between a plant and a pharmaceutical used as medicine is this: plants have those thousands of chemicals available to our bodies, so the active components are generally available in relatively lower doses and are provided along with many other synergistic chemicals that balance out the effects of the active components and provide additional benefits.  In contrast, a pharmaceutical drug contains a higher dose of one active constituent without the benefit of other synergistic chemicals, which is why pharmaceutical drugs tend to have lots of side effects.

Did you know that Your skin is the manifestation of what is going on internally in your body + mind. Our plant allies support us on our journey toward the evolution of realizing we have the potential to heal ourselves. It starts by making choices that support our health and balance.

What is Niacinamide?

Also known as vitamin B3 and nicotinamide, niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that works with the natural substances in your skin to help visibly minimize enlarged pores, tighten lax pores, improve uneven skin tone, soften fine lines and wrinkles, diminish dullness, and strengthen a weakened surface.

Niacinamide, also called nicotinamide, is a form of vitamin B-3, an essential nutrient. A B-3 deficiency can lead to disorders of the skin, kidneys, and brain. Taking niacinamide can help prevent B-3 deficiency.

What are the benefits of using niacinamide?

  • Immunity. Niacinamide helps build keratinTrusted Source, a type of protein that keeps your skin firm and healthy.
  • Lipid barrier. Niacinamide can help your skin grow a ceramide (lipid) barrierTrusted Source, which can, in turn, helps retain moisture. This is beneficial for all skin types, especially if you have eczema or mature skin.
  • Minimizes redness and blotchiness. Niacinamide reduces inflammationTrusted Source, which may help ease redness from eczemaacne, and other inflammatory skin conditions.
  • Minimizes pore appearance. Keeping skin smooth and moisturized Trusted Source may have a secondary benefit — a natural reduction in pore size over time.
  • Regulates oil. The benefits of moisture retention aren’t just for those with dry skin types. Niacinimide can also help regulate the amount of oil the sebaceous glands produce and prevent your glands from going into overdrive.
  • Protects against sun damage. Niacinamide can concurrently rebuild healthy skin cells while also protecting them from damage caused by ultraviolet rays.
  • Treats hyperpigmentationSome research has found 5 percent niacinamide concentrations can be helpful in lightening dark spots. Benefits were seen after four weeks, but not beyond two months. This benefit may be due to increased collagen production.
  • Minimizes fine lines and wrinklesResearch has also found that the same concentration was helpful in reducing some signs of sun damage that come with aging. This includes fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Protects against oxidative stress. Niacinamide helps build cells in the skin while also protecting them from environmental stresses, such as sunlight, pollution, and toxins.
  • Treats acne. Niacinamide may be helpful for severe acne, especially inflammatory forms like papules and pustules. Over time, you may see fewer lesions and improved skin texture.

How long does it take for niacinamide to work? 

You’ll notice some effects immediately although most of the studies on niacinamide showed results after 8-12 weeks. Look for products containing 5% niacinamide. That’s the percentage that’s been proven to visibly make a difference without causing any irritation.

Can Niacinamide be used on all skin types?

For sure. “Niacinamide is a brilliant all-rounder that the vast majority of people – of all ages and skin types – have no problem tolerating. I rarely see someone who doesn’t get on with it,” comments Dr Klaus.

Dry skins will benefit from its help with ceramide production and if you’re dehydrated, it’ll strengthen your barrier which in turn will minimize that all-important water loss. It’s safe to use when pregnant and breastfeeding, too. Make sure to choose a niacinamide product that is organic and free of nasty preservatives and silicone. Some serum are more concentrated then others the strongest found so far is the I’m Fabulous Cosmetics 20% Niacinamide organic serum.

Niacinamide is more frequently studied in combination with other topical medications—not on its own, which makes it difficult to know how effective it would be by itself. Based on the available evidence, well-studied options like prescription retinoids (and sunscreen!) or other antioxidants, like vitamin C, will probably do more for you than niacinamide if hyperpigmentation, fine lines, or wrinkles are your primary concerns. But if your skin is too sensitive to handle those other options, or you’re just looking for a gentler treatment for whatever reason, niacinamide might be a helpful alternative.

Can Niacinamide be used by men and women?

Absolutely, everyone. It is not too old, too young, too fancy, too feminine, too masculine, and certainly not too expensive. 

You can use niacinamide-containing products around your eyes, too. Some might find applying a moisturizer or eye cream with niacinamide helps improve the look of under eye circles, helps soften the appearance of crow’s feet, not to mention enables this delicate area to retain skin-smoothing moisture and resist loss of firmness.

For best results, use leave-on niacinamide products and apply them to cleansed skin twice daily. Those with stubborn concerns around advanced signs of sun damage, orange peel texture, lax pores, and oil-related bumps should consider trying an advanced strength 20% niacinamide serum for use once or twice daily.

What is Snap 8 Peptide?

Snap 8 is an elongation of the hexapeptide, acetyl hexapeptide-3, otherwise known as Argireline. It’s been nicknamed the “anti-wrinkle peptide”. Argireline is a peptide that prevents the formation of wrinkles around the eyes, brow, nose, and mouth – all of the areas of the face that allow us to make expressions and display emotion. How does it prevent wrinkles and lines? Argireline inhibits muscle movement, and has earned the name “Botox in a jar” as a result – but Botox and Argireline work differently.

Botox boosts collagen and helps repair skin to reduce lines and wrinkles. Argireline and Snap 8 work by mimicking the proteins found in the SNARE complex and destabilizing it to prevent muscle movement. If you can’t frown, you won’t have wrinkles from frowning.

Purposes of Snap 8 Peptide

Like Argireline, Snap 8 is meant to give skin fewer wrinkles. By limiting the ability of the face to squint, grin, or glare, the skin is relaxed and expression lines are reduced. Snap 8 is added to many cosmetics in order to give provide:

  • Anti-aging properties
  • Fewer wrinkles
  • Fewer expression lines
  • Reduced crow’s feet around the eyes

Scientific Studies of Snap 8 Peptide

Kinerase studies of Snap 8 conducted by their researchers will reduce the appearance and depth of wrinkles by more than 34%. It is considered a safer method of reducing wrinkles than Botox by most.

In scientific studies involving animal test subjects, Snap 8 operates as a muscle contraction inhibitor. The muscles provide a more consistent method of achieving homeostasis when they are given Snap 8.

Studies also show that Snap 8 works alongside protein Snap 25, which is a T-Snare protein that can regulate the contraction of muscles. When Snap 25 becomes destabilized, wrinkles and lines formed on animal test subjects.

With Snap 8 used in conjunction with Snap 25, the Snap 25 protein remained stabilized for much longer periods of time which provides a more stabilized method of contracting muscles and hypothetically could remove more wrinkles and offer anti-aging properties.

The Power of Herbal Medicine

Herbs are considered food for the body. Throughout history extracts from herb plants, roots, tree bark, leaves and flowers have proven effective in restoring and maintaining health. FOR EVERY DISEASE WE KNOW, GOD PROVIDES A HERB TO GROW!

Extracts are one of the simplest ways to enjoy the goodness of herbs.

What Are Herbal Tinctures?

Tinctures are concentrated herbal extracts that have alcohol as the solvent. An acetum is sometimes defined as “a vinegar tincture” in the tomes, but this is a pretty rare exception.

WHAT DEFINES A TINCTURE?

  • Tinctures are concentrated herbal extracts.
  • All tinctures are extracts, but not all extracts are tinctures! Alcohol must be the solvent used to extract the herbal properties. If you are using vinegar, glycerine, only water (water used to dilute alcohol is fine), or any menstruum (solvent) other than alcohol, your preparation is an extract, but it is not a tincture. Any spirit may be used, but many herbalists prefer something neutral like vodka so the taste of the herb comes through.
  • They can be made with fresh or dried flowers, leaves, roots, barks, or berries. Examples include: dried stevia leaf, vanilla beans, and dried mushrooms.

Herbalists spend from 30 months to three years studying the pharmacology, therapeutics and physio medicine of Western herbal medicine. Constituents found in plants include alkaloids, tannins, astringent properties, glycosides, anthraquinones, resin, volatile oil, mucilage, saponins, triterpenoids, berberine, asparigin, phytosterol and bitter principles just to name a few.

Herbs are metabolised easily by the body, especially the liver, unlike pharmaceutical drugs which interfere with digestion and liver function, creating toxicity and stress on many organs.

The entire physiology is affected by pharmaceutical drugs. Even one tiny drop can create a systemic reaction. I know this from personal experience!

 

Types of herbal medicine philosophies

  • Traditional Western herbal medicine (WHM)
  • Traditional Chinese herbal medicine (TCM)
  • Traditional Ayurvedic herbal medicine (AHM)

There are many other cultures which have their traditional ways of using herbs but these three philosophies are the best known in our society.

PREVENT SKIN DAMAGE FROM THE INSIDE OUT

UV rays, infrared radiation, pollution, and lifestyle factors generate damaging free radicals that prematurely age skin. Antioxidants provide advanced environmental protection and are clinically proven to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and promote a naturally even skin tone by neutralizing free radicals.

Skin is the body’s largest organ and one of the most important. In order to achieve optimal skin health, understanding the various skin types and concerns as well as factors that potentially cause the appearance of damage is essential.

The skin is the largest organ of the body with multiple layers, structural proteins, and vital components responsible for its health and appearance. The key to optimal skin improvement is understanding this dynamic organ.

Every skin is different, and the combination of each skin type and particular skin concern presents a unique set of characteristics.

Atmospheric skin aging is caused by a broad and growing range of environmental aggressors on skin, including UV, infrared radiation (IRA), and pollution.

A skin care formulation is only as good as its ingredients. Explore an alphabetical skin care ingredients dictionary featuring key ingredients, their source, and their benefits on skin.

Atmospheric skin aging refers to visible signs of skin aging caused by exposure to atmospheric aggressors. These aggressors include, but are not limited to UVA/UVB, infrared-A (IR-A), and ozone (O3) pollution.

FACING THE FACTS

Atmospheric aggressors surround us on a daily basis, posing a constant threat to healthy-looking skin, because they induce free radical formation that may damage cells.

THE EFFECTS ON SKIN

Superficially, this damage visibly manifests as premature lines, wrinkles, sagging, and unwanted discoloration.

We all need good antioxidant skin care products and organic is best!

What is vitamin C? Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is probably the best-known vitamin. It is most often associated with citrus fruit and is known for its ability to boost the immune system, increasing the body’s resistance to infections like cold and flu in winter. But what many people don’t know is that vitamin C is an antioxidant that performs a variety of roles in the body. It helps to promote healthy gum and teeth, aids in mineral absorption, and helps heal wounds.
What vitamin C does for you?
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that reacts with free radicals. Through this mechanism, the vitamin protects the body from the onslaught of cancer and other diseases of lifestyle. The vitamin plays an important role in the formation of connective tissue, cartilage, bone matrix, tooth dentin, skin and tendons – making it one of the cornerstones of the wound healing process. Vitamin C is best known for its mechanism of increasing the body’s resistance to infection. It also helps to keep the mucous membranes intact.
I’m Fabulous Cosmetics Vitamin C serum is a stable form of L-Ascorbic Acid. Since the amount of Vitamin C that penetrates into your skin is directly correlated with the acidity of the C, we have set ours appropriately low (2.5pH). You will find that our C Serum will deliver the maximum amount of vitamin into the skin with just a slight amount of irritation/tingling. Our serum will help to protect your skin from UVA & UVB rays damaging effects.
*Ultraviolet light exposure depletes up to two-thirds of your skin’s Vitamin C stores. These levels cannot be re-obtained by ingestion of Vitamin C! They can only be reached by a topical application. Topical Vitamin C provides more than twenty times the amount of Vitamin C found in normal skin, so extremely high percentages are quite wasteful and will not be absorbed and utilized.

More and more people are spending money on collagen, seeking out fillers or buying special creams in the hopes of minimizing wrinkles and achieving more supple skin.

But what’s actually the best way to make sure you’re getting all of the added collagen you want?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, especially type 1 collagen. It’s found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system and tendons. It’s what helps give our skin strength and elasticity, along with replacing dead skin cells. When it comes to our joints and tendons, in simplest terms, it’s the “glue” that helps hold the body together.

Our body’s collagen production naturally begins to slow down as we age. We can thank this degenerative process for signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sagging skin and joint pains due to weaker or decreased cartilage. Other lifestyle factors — like eating a diet high in sugar, smoking and high amounts of sun exposure — also contribute to depleting collagen levels. It’s been found that collagen-related diseases most commonly arise from a combination of either genetic defects, poor intake of collagen-rich foods, nutritional deficiencies and digestive problems affecting production (synthesis) of collagen.

Collagen Production as We Age

When we get older, the production of collagen begins to slow down. As a result, skin can become fragile and less elastic. In addition, hair starts losing its color, joints aren’t as flexible and bone may lose their density.  Supplementing with collagen may help you improve your body’s collagen levels.

The benefits of peptides in this fabulous matte formulation cream are the stimulation of collagen 1, collagen 111, and elastin fibroblasts.

  • Type I collagen forms striated fibers between 80 and 160 nm in diameter in blood vessel walls, tendon, bone, skin and meat. It may be synthesized by fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells.
  • Type III collagen forms reticular fibers in tissues with some degree of elasticity, such as spleen, aorta and muscle. It is synthesized by fibroblasts and smooth muscle cells, contributes substantially to the endomysial connective tissues around individual muscle fibers, provides a small fraction of the collagen found in skin and occurs in the large collagen fibers dominated by Type I collagen. It may have some function in regulating collagen fiber growth.

With efficient moisturization via Hyaluronic acid, as well as non-comedogenic jojoba oil and half a dozen unique botanical actives, this fabulous peptide cream is absolutely fabulous.

“I love using the I’m Fabulous Cosmetics Magic exfoliating mask daily and the Bio Gorgeous peel twice a week”. Said Anis the I’m Fabulous Cosmetics founder.

 

The pores in your skin can get clogged with oil, dirt, debris, dead skin cells, and when skin is inflamed due to excess white blood cells. … Oily and acne-prone skin types produce more oil, which can lead to clogged pores, turning into blackheads, pimples, or even cysts due to inflammation.

A skin pore is an opening that allows oil produced by the sebaceous glands underneath the skin to emerge. The oil, called sebum, can act like a glue, binding with dead skin cells to block the opening. As the gland continues to produce oil, this can build up and eventually form a pimple. Watch this animation to see how pores can get clogged.

Clogged pores are a harmless but annoying cosmetic condition that is particularly common in adolescents. Although for decades the dermatological community has insisted that there was no link between diet and acne, recent research has indicated that the foods you eat can indeed give rise to clogged pores, which in turn gives rise to acne.

You may not love the scent of your coworker’s hand cream, or the perfume wafting across the aisle on the train. But for some people, fragrances like those can trigger a range of very real symptoms, according to a new Australian study, from migraines to difficulties with breathing.

Perfumes contain a mix of several ingredients that include a complex blend of natural essences as well as synthetic chemicals. The average perfume or cologne contains about 14 secret chemical ingredients that are capable of triggering mild to severe allergic reactions in fragrance-sensitive individuals.

Fragrance sensitivity can be defined as an irritation or an adverse reaction to chemicals in a perfume or other scented products such as air fresheners and cosmetics. Sensitivity to strong odors can make allergic people severely ill. People with asthma or other respiratory illness can be more susceptible to fragrance allergies compared to healthy individuals.

Some common symptoms of perfume allergy include the following:

  • mild to severe headache
  • skin irritation, itching, and rashes
  • sneezing, coughing and runny nose, also called allergic rhinitis
  • breathing difficulties, dizziness, and fatigue
  • muscle aches
  • watery, red, and itchy eyes
  • wheezing
  • inability to concentrate
  • swelling – or angioedema
  • nausea and vomiting
