Feeling a little dry and dehydrated? Why we love Pure Fiji!

Pure fiji uses 4  organic certified nut oils that leaves your skin feeling nourished, hydrated, and smelling divine.

This oil is extracted within a few hours of harvesting the coconut, maintaining its naturally high nutrient content of vitamins A.B.C. and E. as well as antioxidants. This oil has a small molecular chain that makes it easy for our skin to accept and drink in the benefits. It has a non-greasy and light consistency

Note: Virgin coconut oil has the highest percentage of fatty acids (anti oxidants) of any oil and due to this will solidify at temperatures below 76 degrees.

SIKECI OIL (SEE KE THEE) – ALEURITES MOLUCCANA

A proven barrier oil that is readily absorbed into by the skin. Particularly good for dry skin, psoriasis and eczema. It is very emollient, very moisturizing. High in Vitamins A, E & F, it revitalizes, assists in rejuvenating and softening the skin.

DILO OIL (DEE LOW) – CALOPHYLLUM INOPHYLLUM

It is known to possess a unique capacity to enhance the skinʼs own repair mechanism, soothe pain and irritation as well as promote the growth of healthy skin. For this reason, dilo oil is widely used as a traditional topical aid in the Islands.

Did you know stress can effect the skin?

Did you know that stress can effect the skin? The mind and skin connect on many different levels. Nerve endings connect to the skin, and wraps around organs, so as emotions are played out neurologically, they can be expressed through the skin. Acne, eczema, hives, rosacea, psoriasis, alopecia (hair loss), vitiligo (de-pigmented white spots on the skin), trichotillomania (hair pulling) and self-mutilation disorders, many skin disorders take their roots from or place their roots in the psyche. Take acne, for example. When you are tense, your body releases stress hormones including cortisol, which may increase the skin’s oil production, making you prone to pimples. stress

Why do you need a professional skin therapist?

Just like you need to see a doctor, dentist or optometrist to help with your health and make sure your body parts are working at it’s optimum level.

Skin is in fact the largest living organ on the human body. It is used to defends against the external environmental and regulates the body’s temperature. It helps eliminate toxins from the body. It heals from cuts, abrasions and scratches, and it is continually renewing and protecting.
 Your skin needs as much personal attention as it does other organs of the body. A professional skin therapist can help with your queries or concerns. Better looking skin starts with healthy skin.
