Thank you so much for all of the feedback last fortnight when we asked you what you wanted – glass or plastic packaging.
It’s a tough call but basically the majority told us you loved the luxury of glass, that you prefer to avoid plastics for health reasons, and that you like being able to get every last drop out of our glass jars of Anti-Ageing and Repair Cream, which you can’t do with a plastic tube.
We searched far and wide for the perfect plastic solution but nothing is 100% guaranteed to be safe of chemicals leeching into products, so for now we’re taking the high road and Happy Skincare will continue to minimise use of plastic.
Yes glass can break and although our products get delivered safely in their bubble wrap, we have heard a few stories about bottles smashing on bathroom floors.
Something we’re considering is a reusable silicone sleeve for glass bottles so that you can stop worrying about being so careful in the bathroom and when you travel.
It might look similar to the picture on the right, which is a silicone sleeve for a baby’s milk bottle.
If this is something you’d be interested in buying, comment below to let us know. We’ll only do it if we get a fair bit of interest because although the individual sleeves aren’t expensive, the startup costs are astronomical.
Last year Aaron visited a few cancer support groups in our local area (Newcastle) to talk to them about healthy skincare choices (things like what to look out for on a skincare label and natural alternatives to the chemical-laden products).
These talks have been really popular and we have now realised that Aaron’s talks can be beneficial to everyone, not just cancer patients. He’ll be visiting a couple of diabetic support groups and retirement villiages in the next month.
Do you have a group that would be interested in having Aaron come along as a guest speaker to talk about skincare? He’s open to travel as far south as Sydney and as far North as Taree at the moment. Just contact us if you’re interested.
Don’t forget to leave us a comment below if you’re interested in silicone sleeves for your lovely glass skin care products!
Unfortunately we can’t control the damage caused by external aggressors (like wind, UV rays and pollution), but we can make conscious choices about the products we choose to slather on our strands. Here are just a few reasons why making the switch to natural might be the best treat you can give your cheesed-off tresses – and your conscience.
The secret to a routine that’s going to make your skin happy can often come down to a “less is more” approach. If you over-do it your skin will feel ho-hum. Here’s our guide to how often you should be doing all your skin things - from exfoliating to facials - to make your skin strong, clear and bright.
Getting older is an interesting thing. We've been brainwashed to fear the slightest changes in our complexions: a wrinkle here, a laugh line there, a smattering of sun spots.
And yet with age comes sooooo much good stuff: wisdom, comfort in your own skin, and the oh-so-coveted ability to give fewer damns. If you ask us, that sounds pretty great.
