Compatibility of Ingredients for Healthy Skin

by Susan Parker July 22, 2015

 Compatibility defined, two things that are compatible. They exist or perform together without interfering with the other or causing conflict. They function in the same environment without negatively impacting each other. I’m all for compatibility!

Modern definitions focus on the compatibility of computers, digital programs and equipment but we are interested in the compatibility of ingredients and the human body as the pathway to healthy skin. Same idea, different application but similar desired outcome; everything works together.

It wasn’t long ago, that the idea that what was put on the skin would stay on the outside of the body. This is why cosmetics are so loosely regulated where just about any combination of ingredients, whether natural or synthetic can be sold for external use.

Even if the skin doesn’t react immediately, are all of the ingredients used in fact beneficial for the skin and body. Do they nourish? Do they protect and do they not cause harm over the long run?

These are the criteria we use when formulating and assembling out products and we encourage you to read labels on all your food and skin care purchases. Governmental agencies that are in the business to protect us are not always focused on the same criteria that you may be when it comes to your health and well-being.

SOLUM&HERBE products contain so many food grade ingredients because we see skin care as skin nourishment. The products could be eaten, but they are designed to taste good to your skin only! We are kitchen inspired as a chef is, not so much laboratory allied as scientists. We are most comfortable aligning with Mother Nature’s organization of chemicals than with a cosmetic’s lab.

It all begins and ends in the Natural world. Respecting the wisdom and organization of Nature’s compounds that nourish us from both inside in the form of natural foods and which we put on our skin is our basis for being.
