• Danish Water in Our Skincare

    2015-06-15 17:08:00

    Country with the cleanest water.

    Denmark has some of the cleanest water in the world. Quite uniquely, all its water is pumped up from deep below ground, and passed through a sand filter before it comes out of the taps. It does not have any substances like chlorine added to it, which says a lot about its purity coming out of the ground!

    danish water in natural skincare

    The high quality of the Danish drinking water is not only vital to health and hygiene, but also to the quality of Danish products. Denmark’s exports of food and cosmetics products are sustained by the pureness of the Danish groundwater.

    When it comes to skincare water forms a great proportion of content in most of the skincare. In the EU, the ingredients on your cosmetic labels have to be listed in descending order of weight until they reach the ingredients that are present in quantities of 1% or less. That means the first ingredient on the list generally makes up about 30%-100% of the product.

    Water is used in the formulation of virtually every type of cosmetic and personal care product. It can be found in lotions, creams, bath products, cleansing products, deodorants, makeup, moisturisers, oral hygiene products, personal cleanliness products, skin care products, shampoo, hair conditioners, shaving products, and suntan products. The quality and origin of the water used can, however, vary. At Aviendo Natural, we believe that no artificial substance can replace what nature gives us in all its purity, and we therefore guarantee that our products are 100% natural. Furthermore, all ingredients in Aviendo Natural skin care products have been carefully selected for their ability to provide proven benefits to the skin. Our over-riding aim is to complement the skin’s natural functions instead of disabling them.

    denmark country with the cleanest water

    Apart from our Make-Up Remover (which is purely of apricot kernel oil) all our skincare products contain Danish water. Danish water is known worldwide for its unique clarity and mineral contents and is one of Denmark's biggest treasures. After being pumped from deep below the surface the water does not have to travel far as all our skincare products are produced in Denmark. This means we minimise any threat of it being compromised and losing its famous purity.

    Natural SKincare and Clean Water

    Our skincare contains only water that is free of toxins, pollutants and microbes is used in the formulation of cosmetics and personal care products. Water used for this purpose is also referred to as distilled water, purified water and aqua, the name used in the European Union.

    Aviendo Aloe Vera Restorative Gel

    Our focus on high quality natural ingredients includes the water used in our products and production processes. Produced in Denmark, Aviendo Natural uses exclusively Danish water, which is well known for its high quality.

  • Natural Ingredient: Bergamot Orange

    2015-05-17 13:00:00

    Bergamot Essential Oil


    Bergamot is a citrus fruit whose rind is used for extracting the Bergamot Essential Oil. The scientific name of bergamot is Citrus Aurantium var. or Citrus Bergamia. It is a tropical plant, but thrives in Europe as well.

    europe nature skincare ingredients by Aviendo

    Traditional Use


    It has traditionally been used for oily and troubled skin. Certain components of the essential oil of Bergamot are antibiotic and disinfectant in nature. They inhibit the growth of germs, virus and fungi. They also effectively prohibit infections, including those of the skin. If regularly used with bath- ing water or in soaps the skin and hair remains protected from infections and become shiny. It also cures infections of the colon, intestines, urinary tract and kidneys. he same disinfectant and antibiotic properties of berga- mot oil make it a good antiseptic and vulnerary agent. It not only promotes fast healing of wounds, cracks on the skin and heels, ulcers, eczema, and itching, but it also protects wounds from becoming septic and developing deadly tetanus. It not only treats and heals the effects of other infections, but inhibits the formation of new infections.

    Some people treat a skin condition called psoriasis by applying bergamot oil directly to the skin and then shining long-wave ultraviolet (UV) light on the affected area. Bergamot oil is also applied to the skin (used topically) for a tumor caused by a fungal infection (mycosis fungoides) and for pigment loss (vitiligo). It is also used as an insecticide to protect the body against lice and other parasites.

  • Our Skincare Ingredient: Avocado

    2015-04-29 13:00:00

    avocado 100% natural rejuvenating eye care

    Wonder from the kitchen

    Avocado is a tree native to Mexico and Central America which bears little egg-like fruits. We use them to make guacamole or as a base for avo-egg open face sandwich... hmmm sounds amazing! But you know what else is great about avocados? They are a truly great natural moisturiser and face cream base!

    Why so amazing?

    Avocados are a great source of antioxidant carotenoids like alpha carotene, beta carotene, beta cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin and lutein. These free radical quenching compounds provide significant protection for your skin from the environmental damage that leads to fine lines, wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. High amounts of carotenoids in your diet have been shown in scientific studies to improve your skin’s density, thickness, tone and general appearance. Many people are surprised to find out that avocado contains good amounts of vitamin C for healthy skin. One of the other main avocado skin benefits comes from their high oleic acid content. This monounsaturated fatty acid maintains moisture in the epidermal layer of your skin, helping to make it soft and hydrated. Omega-9 fatty acids are one of the building blocks of healthy skin and main contents of avocados. An omega-9 fat, oleic acid is also involved in regenerating damaged skin cells and reducing facial redness and irritation. The monounsaturated fats in avocado are also beneficial for improving your skin tone.

    They are vital for maintaining good moisture levels in the epidermal layer of your skin that make it look and feel soft and healthy. Omega-9 fats can additionally help reduce skin redness and irritation and are involved in repairing damaged skin cells. Avocado benefits also include protecting your skin from wrinkles and other visible signs of aging with its antioxidant carotenoids, vitamin E which helps guard against photo-aging from sun exposure and vitamin C which is involved in the creation of elastin and collagen for maintaining your skin’s elasticity and firmness. Does not this sound like overwhelming amount of greatness for such a small plant? You can find avocado in several of our most potent products: Rejuvenating Eye Care Revitalising Face Cream

  • The most important person: Mother's Day

    2015-04-15 14:30:00

    Where did it start?


    It all goes back as far as the ancient Greece and Roman Empire but history of Mother's day can also be traced to UK, where a Mothering Sunday was celebrated annually and children gifted their mothers with flowers and small gifts for several centuries now. Today, it is all about tradition but also so much more!

    mother's day celebration skincare presents

    100 Years of saying thank you!

    Some dates may vary, but the year 2015 is by many considered the 100th “birthday” of this very special celebration and we better start thinking of it early! Today the festival of Mother’s day is celebrated across 46 countries (though on different dates) and it is a hugely popular affair. Millions of people across the globe take the day as an opportunity to honour their mothers, thank them for their efforts in giving them life, raising them and being their constant support and well wisher.

    Today, Mother's Day is always celebrated on the second Sunday in May (this year it is the 10th of May!) when spring flowers are in bloom, the weather is warm and our thoughts happy.  Join us to honour the women who raised the us—and all the mothers who sacrificed for their children.

    mothers day presents natural skincare produced in denmark

    Although here is probably no way we can ever really thank our mother for all she does for us nevertheless we must make it a habit to keep reminding ourselves of the various sacrifices she made while raising us. Mothers' Day is the best time to say in words how much you love and care for your mum, although the bast practice is to do so every day of course :).

  • Why Are Parabens Bad?

    2015-04-11 14:24:00

    What are parabens and why are they bad?

    We go on a lot about our products being ‘paraben free’, but then it occurred to us that you may not be entirely sure exactly what parabens are. So now comes the time for an explanation!

    History

    Since the 1950’s, parabens have been used as a common preservative in countless beauty and body care products. They are a relatively inexpensive agents that prevent growth of bacteria and mould and have since become a staple in the beauty industry.

    Dangers

    Parabens are a form of synthetic estrogen-mimicking agents that have received a lot of negative attention in the press and in medical circles because there is evidence that they disrupt the hormone system. Furthermore, their remains were found in breast cancer tissue. It is currently unclear how much of the body exposure to these chemicals can really pose a threat on human health, as no long term results are available Unless the product is labelled ‘paraben free’, there is a potential risk. Parabens often hide under vague names such as fragrances, which can represent hundreds of chemicals. There are many arguments against the use of parabens and in a world where your body is continuously exposed to harmful chemicals, limiting your skin’s exposure to harmful chemicals in any way you can is a welcome relief.

    paraben free natural skincare aviendo

    Pregnancy and children

    Anything with parabens in should be avoided particularly when you are pregnant or if you have a small child. Parabens are connected to reproductive hormones (estrogen) and pose a health risk to both your own health and that of your baby. Switching to all natural products is one of the easiest yet most effective steps to take in order to remain healthy.

    De-paraben your life

    paraben free aviendo aloe vera soothing face tonner There are reasons to be mindful of parabens, especially if the products of use cover larger areas of skin or if you use them regularly. To begin "de-parabening" your life, firstly, look out for paraben free make up removers and body lotions, and follow with paraben-free face and hand cream. We alway make sure to use only all natural preservatives in all our products and avoid parabens and chemicals like them. Yes, it decreases the shelf life of our skincare, but it’s a price we’re willing to pay for high quality and health.
