Why use a plant based sun oil – confirmed by a university study

If like me, you’ve taken on board all the advice urging you to apply suncream liberally before going outside, then you’ll be interested to read the article below from John Hamilton, Dermatology Expert at Essentially Yours.

“For 30 years, you’ve been urged to slather on sunscreen before venturing outdoors on yourself and your children, only to discover that it stops you absorbing the most important of vitamins> vitamin D.

We now have for the first time in 100 years seen rickets return and many old people are absolutely petrified to go in the sun. Yet a little sun to an over 60yr old is probably the very best thing they can do for the longitude of life and health. ( I always remember reading about a cancer specialist who said he would rather wheel out a patient into the sun for a short time than give them the most potent cancer drug )… What does that say ?

As if that’s not enough, new data reveals chemicals in sunscreens are absorbed into the human body at levels high enough to raise concerns about potentially toxic effects to internal organs.

Bloodstream levels of sunscreen chemicals increased dramatically after tested subjects applied spray, lotion and cream for four days as directed on the label, according to the report.

The levels far exceed the set threshold which requires topical medications to undergo safety studies, said Dr. Kanade Shinkai, a dermatologist with the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine.

“It’s not like they went a little bit over,” she said. “It’s really quite high, orders of magnitude higher than that.”

Of course, many of you know about using our plant oils instead and a day does not go by without another person saying that they are great – no reaction,( no burn if you follow our advice) and of course a neutralising of the main cause of skin ageing and skin cancer… free radical damage.

And only this month, this study has been confirmed in laboratory testing by Birmingham university, which we will be making a big announcement about shortly.

So if you still believe we may have some sun left to come, or are jetting off then see below for what you should be using and remember you can use it as a body oil after showering or a bath oil etc for keeping skin soft and anti-ageing.

One thing to remember the main source of skin damage is from UVA and that goes through umbrellas, hats, clothes, water and glass. whereas UVB the surface burn is shielded out by shade…. so you still need the oil on in the shade.” John Hamilton, Dermatology Expert

As we looked out of the window at the rain last week, we knew that soon it would be back to baking temps and major UV damage…

Have you got your UVA protection oil?

Check now, because it’s easy to run out of UVA protection oil. Maybe you used it all the last time it got hot.

What’s the latest news on sunblock/SPFs being dangerous? 

Recent action by the FDA  (Food and Drug Administration in the United States) in 2019 has banned many chemical ingredients found in SPF products. Evidence is linking these ingredients to harmful effects on the body. Now is the time to consider natural, safer alternatives.

After all, sunburn is not all the only risk that can happen in summer…

Insects are having a field day biting this year. I  heard recently that someone’s holiday was ruined by insect bites, yet you don’t need to suffer. Healing oil prevents the insects from biting in the first place and repairs / stops itching if they start. It’s the first thing to reach for if you or your family suffer cuts or infection on your skin. Find out more

Most human ailments stem from infections and inflammation. The healthy chemicals in nature can combat these…

“I believe Essentially Yours products are much much more than anti ageing, 100% harsh chemical-free skincare & toiletries…”  Ceri Rundle

247e343d-0cf7-4ddf-b18f-8e129eccbcd2It has just been announced that the most famous brand of baby products (Johnson & Johnson Ltd.) has led to USA courts awarding £4 billion in damages, to 22 women, who suffered ovarian cancer, as a result of using  Johnson’s baby powder. 

Yet Johnson & Johnson  is still the most popular brand used by mums… That might be because at times in our lives, we’re just too busy and weighted in tradition to take on new information. However after suffering cancer of the pituitary gland, I believe it’s really worth taking the time to consider absolutely everything that you put into your body, hair and skin.

Essentially Yours started out 20 years ago

Essentially Yours were the very first company not to use harsh chemicals like parabens, synthetic colours and harsh chemicals. I was delighted when I found I could use natural products on my skin and now recent medical discoveries are proving that natural ingredients are a much safer way to treat your body and your skin.

On 12 July 2018, New Scientist ran a very worrying article about a new superbug  

Mycoplasmas Genitalium has been around since the eighties, however, the main worry is that antibiotics are almost non-effective on Mycoplasma anymore.

Now, certain essential oils have shown in animal studies to be anti-Mycoplasma and 4 out of the 5 named  are used in products like Essentially Yours Number 6 Body Oil and our Peppermint Shower Gel

The Interstitium

This important organ has been newly discovered in the human body and previously missed. The Interstitium is just beneath the top layer of skin and is a body-wide interconnecting meshwork between the blood vessels, Could this be why Essentially Yours products are having such an impact on human health and wellbeing? Because all the good nutrients in Essentially Yours products get in through the skin and are distributed by the interstitium?

So next time you are in the shower or applying our oils etc… be aware that a lot more could be happening from Essentially Yours products than you think. 

It’s the healthy chemicals in nature that prolong health and life, fight infections and combat inflammation – the main cause of human ailments today.

Could that be why so many people who use Essentially Yours products, report back to say just how healthy they are?

Important…. Skin protection from UVA

71829334-244b-4043-ba08-8be63ecc1004With this week prediction that we are going to see 30+c in the UK with even more powerful UVA (Ultra Violet A), I recommend you make sure you look at the Essentially Yours UVA oil. You can even use it under your SPF (Sun Protection Factor). UVA ages the skin and is responsible for much more skin cancers than UVB.

When you’re working outside, UVA bypasses many SPFs. It actually goes through shade, clothes, glass & water and speeds up damaging free radicals. Luckily, natural oils can stop that free radical damage. A further worry is that many chemicals in SPFs have also shown they increase the damage of UVA, so the natural oil can act as a barrier to such nasty chemicals in the SPFs. If you want to know about what’s in SPFs, find out more

Did you know that shampoos, shower gels & deoderants are strong pollutants?

Screen Shot 2018-02-22 at 11.53.52

methodetimesprodwebbin704bae52-1346-11e8-aa39-e7299ff3a5e8By John Hamilton, biogerontologist &  dermatologist.

When this article appeared  in papers this week all over the UK and the USA  it prompted me to remind everyone of our non- toxic shampoos, shower gels and deodorants etc.

It’s interesting that not only do most personal care products pollute the world with harsh chemicals going into the rivers and seas, but now its been proven conclusively that they cause cancers and illness in humans on top to damage to skin and hair daily.

I have been saying this since 1998 when I was one of the first to talk about Dr O’Conners study at Brunel into parabens and breast cancer… it’s not just parabens we need to be concerned with… its lots of personal care product ingredients.

When so many people are said to eat healthily and follow interests like yoga for wellbeing, yet ever morning, the same people cover their whole body with chemicals which not only damage the skin but can go into the body within 30 secs.

I was looking in a department store last weekend and yes many organic products are overpriced  £20+ for a shower gel, so they can be beyond many budgets.. but we are not at all like that … You can get affordable, harsh chemical-free products with the world’s most potent natural health benefiting oils, which are actually good for you and smell great (the best in the industry & not synthetic perfumes the real oils).   AND REMEMBER  you can also use them as a body wash and shampoo.. don’t be misled into thinking you need both… because you don’t.

About Essentially Yours

These days, we dog owners often worry far more about what exactly we are feeding our dogs –  food, treats or supplements, than we do about the products we use ourselves. The desire is to avoid as many chemicals, artificial colours, preservatives as possible. That’s why I was so excited to discover this range of skin care which has been developed by John Hamilton, Cosmetologist, Dermatologist and Skin Anti-Ageing Biogerontologist (the study of the ageing process).

All of the products are completely free of any harsh synthetic petro-chemicals – unlike most well-known brands – and are manufactured to pharmaceutical standards in the UK.

John takes theories, conclusions and results from research compiled by leading universities to develop products at the forefront of innovation and scientific excellence –meaning you will get results using these products which you can’t get with most other brands.
