We started to making our own skincare products a long time ago! However, if you are quite new to making your own products, or haven’t yet and want to know why you should, here are 8 amazing reasons to inspire you to start!1) TRUSTIt's hard to trust products with long list at the back of the bottle with some you can't even pronounce! Most of the items that claimed to be organic or natural may have one or two ingredients that is organic or maybe a drop of essential oil , so you can't really trust products that are labelled as 'natural' or 'organic'. 2) COSTThe cost of good quality natural and organic products is often high and for good reason; they are quality products, using the best ingredients, which have been carefully formulated and branded. If you choose to make your own products you don’t have to pay business expenses. All you need to pay for are the ingredients you use and something to package the product in. Making your own products is therefore much more cost effective.3) CHEMICAL & SYNTHETIC FREEMany people don't want to use products that are not chemical or synthetic free, which refer back to number 1 point. You cant really easily trust some products that are labelled as "organic' or 'natural'.By making your own, you can make 100% natural products, free from harmful chemical and synthetic ingredients ...read more..
LACC nail polish stands for La Couleur Couture nail polish. Created in 2009, it’s a cruelty free, vegan-friendly lacquer that’s great for a whole bunch of reasons. There’s a whole bunch of stuff not in this line of polish – no parabens, formaldehyde, or any of the other chemicals that go with that whole 5-free thing. There’s also no gluten in it. Is gluten-free polish a thing? Sort of. Lots of polish coats contain hydrolysed wheat protein so if you’re trying to remove all gluten from your personal space and have therefore given up your beloved nail polishes, you can safely sport LACC and be all kinds of gluten-free.LACC Polish = Happy VegansYep, LACC is vegan-friendly. This line was developed without animal testing and without animal by-products. I know, you’re thinking that there might be animals in your polish, right? Well there might be – like maybe the super-finely ground sparkly fish scales of a herring. Or maybe there’s cochineal from which the dye carmine is derived. Yep, sometimes there’s not-vegan-friendly stuff in your cosmetics. Now you know.LACC Polish = Breathability BonusLACC is a breathable polish. Breathable? What? Yes. Apparently, it allows water to penetrate it and reach the nail.We need to keep in mind this isn’t about your nails breathing (FACT: nails don’t have lungs, ergo they do not breathe). This is about the ability of both water and air to penetrate the polish and reach the nail surface.To us, that’s not the definition of “breathable” (it’s more like my definition of air-and-water permeable), this is a big deal for Muslim women. Why? That’s because Islam states that in order to pray properly, you gotta purify yourself by washing every part of your hands and arms – including your nails . If water reaches the nail, you’re good to go. What does that mean? It means Muslim women can now wear this particular line of polish while praying instead of having to remove polish before they pray and reapply it after. It’s wudhu-friendly.It's time to put some colour clothes on your nails! Book you appointment with us :)For more information, visit www.laccbeauty.com....read more..
