HOW ECO DIVA PRODUCTS WORK & BENEFIT YOU
Eco Diva products are formulated with superfood nutritional ingredients for skin health. Our face & body ranges have been carefully formulated to balance, calm, soothe, smooth and awaken your skin’s natural healthy glow, every day. Our products are made with the highest quality ingredients found in nature. All products are vegan, 100% natural, organic, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulphate-free, eco-friendly, locally-made.
Our skin is naturally designed to fight infection and environmental stresses and its ability to do so is affected by its pH level. The pH level of the skin refers to how acidic or alkaline it is. On a scale of 1-14, with 1 being the most acidic to 14 being the most alkaline, 5.5-7 is considered to be the optimal reading for your skin’s pH.
We strongly recommend only using 100% natural products for optimal results. Using astringent soaps and products that contain potentially harmful ingredients like sodium laurel sulphate, parabens, chemical stabilizers, chemical preservatives can remove the acid mantle and can leave the skin vulnerable to fungal or bacterial infections, pigmentation and other skin.
At Eco Diva Natural, we don’t believe in skin types (like dry, oily or combination skin). We believe that skin ‘types’ only exist when the skin’s pH levels are out of balance and in an acid state. This can be caused by the following:
1. The use of products that contain certain chemicals like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Petrochemicals, Cocoamide, Methylparaben or Propylparaben. According to numerous studies, there are more than 800 chemicals commonly used in commercial skin care products, 44 of which are potentially harmful. The body lotions, hand creams and moisturizers that you are using to soften your skin could actually be the cause of dry, cracked, oily, combination, pigmentation and other skin irritations. Those same chemicals, when applied are absorbed through the skin and into your body. Once in the body, the chemicals have to be processed by your liver. So it’s very important to understand the ingredients in the products that you use
2. Combining different brands in your skincare routine. (a Face Wash from one brand, a scrub from another brand, a cream from another brand). The use of multi-brand products could be sending too many confusing messages to your skin all at once and can disrupt the natural eco-system of the dermis and epidermis
An acid forming diet can also cause your skin’s pH levels to go out of balance. Ensure you are eating 70% plant based foods and much less meat, dairy, alcohol, gluten. Your body and your skin will love you for this. We also recommend drinking plenty of fresh water with freshly squeezed lemon (Please note: We strongly recommend NOT drinking water from our taps as the tap water can contain chemicals, including chlorine and in some areas even bacteria and faeces that can be harmful to your health and your skin).
The answer is yes, it’s a good idea to protect from UVA & UVB rays, but – and it’s a big BUT, we urge you to please research the ingredients in your sunscreen as most brands (if they are not natural) contain very harmful chemicals that are known carcinogens and can also throw your skin’s pH out of balance and create pigmentation and other irritation issues. Eco Diva products contains naturally occurring UVA & UVB protection, so it is not necessary to apply a separate sunscreen to your skin after your Eco Diva skincare routine. We are also in the process of developing our own 100% natural Sunscreen for face and body that will complement the range and have no harmful effects on your skin, only healthy protection. (Please keep an eye out for the launch).
Our recommendation for maximum results, is to only use Eco Diva products as mixing various brands can definitely cause the skin to go out of balance. With Eco Diva, a little goes a long way, so you can use sparingly and allow your skin to let you know how much it needs. This is particularly important with our Face Cream as too much can feel greasy. Your skin will only absorb what is needs at any given time, so over use can cause a greasy film. It’s best to start off slowly and feel your way to the perfect amount to use for you.
The Eco Diva range is designed specifically for SKIN. That means anyone and everyone that has skin. Babies, children, teenagers, adults and seniors. No matter your colour, race or gender, Eco Diva works to provide skin with the nutrients it needs to heal itself, naturally.
Our products are proudly made in an eco-certified laboratory in South Africa. That means our products are made locally, allowing you to experience luxury skincare at affordable prices. We have worked out that the full face range will last up to 3 months and will cost about R28 per day (that’s the price of a Cappuccino) for a gorgeously glowing complexion every day.
The traditional toners can strip the skin of its natural oils. This is because of the alcohol or chemical content – which in turn, puts the skin’s pH out of balance and can cause various skin conditions. Instead, we have replaced the ‘toner’ ritual with our luxury Liquid Vitamin Hydra Mist that offers hydration and a burst of vitamins to your skin every time you spray.
Natural efficacy is being tested and proving successful every single day with our customers. Our holistic approach is 3 fold. 1. Gut health 2. Wellness 3. Skin health. Natural efficacy differs from lab efficacy – Eco Diva offers a lifestyle shift, not only an applied cure. The more disciplined the individual, when it comes to diet, self-love and skin regime the sooner the benefits will show, and last. The Eco Diva PerpHect Solution Kits now offer FREE gut health & wellness tips to truly treat causes not just address symptoms. Our aim is balanced skin and gut pH – everyday care and proper nutrition results in the body healing itself inside and out.
