Choosing the right face cream for aging skin

By News No Comments

essential oils with flowers

Choosing the right face cream for aging skin just got easier. With today’s technological advances, we are able to understand plant nutrients as they relate to supporting the body and improving the skin. In fact, new research on aging skin has given new light on plant-based skin creams that not only improve aging signs on the skin but are completely healthy in every way to the body, which means no adverse chemicals, or synthetics that are present in almost all expensive anti-wrinkle commercial creams on store shelves, be it Paris, Milan, New York or Hong Kong most of their ingredients derived from the synthetic version of plants. So, what if I told you that you can have an all-natural organic plant-based skin cream created for aging skin that not only helps improve extrinsic wrinkles but also will hold off the appearance of intrinsic wrinkles?  A cream that won’t break your budget and will also even out your complexion with nutrients provided by mother nature. Clean, green, and eco-friendly. Interested in something like that?  

Viso di Fiori Rejuvenation Facial Moisturizer was created precisely for aging skin, mature skin, or environmentally damaged skin and it is created with only plant-based ingredients. If you haven’t experienced it already, the skin as we age undergoes several changes such as thinning, dryness, sagging, and wrinkles, why? Well, the skin being the largest organ of the body which reflects the inner health of the other organs within the skin can reveal only that the body is aging. So then we ask, can we hold off the aging of the body or perhaps aid the body in reversing age and improving it?  Science is now revealing that a holistic lifestyle that includes a proper plant-based diet, peaceful meditation, physical exercise emphasizing strength and flexibility, and utilizing plant ingredients in skincare can significantly improve the overall health of the body.  KiVi Organics maintains that working with the right plants can and will improve the skin.  

Like the organs within the skin, it requires hydration, moisturizing, vitamins, proteins,  and minerals to keep it healthy. Viso di Fiori was created with the perfect combination of natural plant nutrients that work with the skin in a symbiotic way. Plant extracts as well as potent plant liquids called essential oils are at the core of Viso’s formula.  

Data conducted on aging skin revealed that certain extracts and essential oils provide Peptides which are short chains of amino acids that can help in stimulating collagen production, reducing inflammation, and improving the skin’s texture. They can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Mushrooms and some essential oils also contain Niacinamide which is a form of Vitamin B3 that can help improve the skin’s texture, reducing hyperpigmentation, and increasing the skin’s hydration levels. It can also strengthen the skin barrier, which can protect the skin from external stressors. Green Tea Extract contains peptides called catechins, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Plant-based carrier oils like jojoba oil and rosehip oil are known to contain high levels of antioxidants and essential fatty acids that can help moisturize the skin, reduce inflammation, and improve the skin’s texture and tone. Essential oils like frankincense and lavender are also known to have anti-aging properties, including reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improving skin elasticity.

Viso di Fiori is our top-selling facial rejuvenation cream because it contains these and other properties derived from plants that improve skin elasticity, even out the complexion, and improve the health of the skin.  In some cases, people have noticed a difference in less than 30 days. 

It’s important to note that many synthetic or chemically produced products can contain harsh chemicals that can irritate or damage the skin, leading to further skin damage and premature aging. Some of these products may also contain ingredients that are potentially harmful to the environment and can have negative impacts on our health and well-being. 

Viso di Fiori contains the right carrier oils, essential oils, and herbs that can help reduce the signs of aging and improve the overall appearance of the skin. This month’s Mother’s Day Special will allow you to purchase Viso di Fiori and receive a sample size of our top-selling Vitamin Rich Body Cream and an essential oil fragrant bee’s wax candle. All for the price of $59.95.  Mom will love you for giving her this special treat!

How to have smooth wrinkle free skin around your eyes with plant based ingredients

By News No Comments

Have you been looking for a product that can minimize wrinkles and sagging skin around the eyes? What if I told you that you can improve the skin around your eyes,  brighten and tighten your skin, and lessen intrinsic and extrinsic wrinkles, all with natural plant-based ingredients and without breaking your bank account?

KiVi Organics Rejuvenation Eye Cream and Flawless Eye’s Rejuvenation Serum contain a synergistic combination of potent essential oils, plant extracts, and the right light cold pressed seed oils that are all loaded with natural sources of vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, essential fatty acids, and proteins. With KiVi Organics Day Rejuvenation Eye Cream in the morning and our Night Time Flawless Eye Serum before bed,  you will notice a surprising improvement in less than 30 days. KiVi products work to increase the cell regeneration time of the skin, aid in collagen production, minimize wrinkles and improve dark spots.

Understanding the chemistry of the skin and the natural chemical constituents of plants as they relate to the body is crucial. The skin is the largest organ of the body and has many functions, including protection from external elements, temperature regulation, and providing sensory input through millions of receptors. It also synthesizes essential vitamin D when exposed to the sun and helps eliminate toxins, heat, and oils through its millions of pores.

During adolescence, the skin has a cell regeneration time of 28 to 30 days. However, as we age, the skin’s cellular regeneration slows down to around 35 days or more, which varies from person to person. Because of this slower turnover of cells, dead skin cells accumulate on the surface of the skin, resulting in a duller complexion compared to the rosy skin of youth. The skin also becomes thinner and more fragile, leading to broken capillaries on the surface. As the skin loses elasticity and moisture, wrinkles, fine lines, and dryness set in. Collagen production decreases with age as well, resulting in less elasticity, sagging skin, and age spots.

Our Clean and Green plant-based eye products will benefit the skin without having adverse or harmful long-term effects on the body. Let me begin by explaining why natural remedies are essential. For starters, using natural remedies is a safe way to improve skin health, unlike commercial products that contain harsh chemicals, additives, synthetics, and unnatural preservatives which can actually contribute to the onset of sagging skin or premature wrinkles. Another benefit of plant-based ingredients is that our bodies have the ability to utilize the most beneficial elements of the plant constituent and what is not needed exits the body easily unlike the counterparts which tax the gut and our immunity system and remain in the lymph nodes. Ingredients which are derived from natural plant sources are free of toxins that can harm your skin and are not likely to cause skin irritation, allergic reactions, or other adverse effects.

Plant-based ingredients are known to be rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and other nutrients that are beneficial for the skin. Several research institutions, including The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), The University of Reading, UK, and The University of California, Davis, have identified specific plants that have benefits for minimizing wrinkles and improving skin health. These plant-based ingredients are as effective as their synthetic counterparts without the harmful chemicals. KiVi Organics specializes in identifying natural ingredients that are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and other nutrients that work symbiotically with the human body and are extremely beneficial for the skin.

KiVi Organics’ Rejuvenation Eye Cream and Flawless Eyes Serum contain essential oils which are potent liquid extracts from plants, plant extracts, which are natural compounds derived from plants, herbal water, which are the byproduct of the extraction process of essential oils, cold-pressed carrier oils, such as coconut and grapeseed as well as super oils which are slightly heavier, such as Evening Primrose, Borage and Rose hips seed oils and offer additional vitamins. Combined together they will improve skin tone by aiding in collagen support, offer anti-inflammatory properties which decrease puffiness, anti-aging properties which reduce wrinkles and fine lines, aid in diminishing scars,  help to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, such as sun spots, and can offer natural sun protection properties from UV damage. Additionally, these beautiful plant properties are rich in natural sources of vitamins and natural essential fatty acids. It’s hard to imagine that with continued use of natural plant-based products, the skin is naturally protected by the antimicrobial properties that even prevent acne and skin infections because they aid the pH balance of the skin as well. If that weren’t enough, KiVi Organics goes the extra mile to infuse healing herbs, such as Calendula, Chamomile, Lavender, Comfrey, and Reishi mushroom, in many of our cold-pressed oils for up to 30 days providing even more skin and body nutrition.

Apart from using KiVi Organics’ natural plant-based products we always recommend several tips for improving skin tone and reducing extrinsic wrinkles around the eyes. Protecting the skin from the sun by wearing sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day, even on cloudy days, and wearing protective clothing such as hats and sunglasses can significantly reduce extrinsic wrinkles. Additionally, drinking plenty of water, eating a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins, and getting enough sleep can help keep the skin hydrated and plump, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and improve skin health. Moreover, practicing stress-reducing activities such as yoga, meditation, or deep breathing exercises, and quitting smoking can help improve skin health.

KiVi Organics is offering a 30% discount on the combination of their Regeneration Cream and Flawless Eyes Serum during the month of April, and customers who purchase both products will receive a complimentary bag containing 10 samples of some of their other top-selling botanical products.

Live life well with KiVi Organics.

Why Facial Toners should be Part of Your Skincare Routine

By News No Comments

Toners are often the most overlooked item in a skincare routine. Toners remove soap and cleansing residue and even clean the dirt off your skin if you don’t use a cleanser.  The pH balance of your skin is crucial to having hydrated and happy skin, and toners provide essential rebalancing of its pH levels.  It’s an excellent hydrator for the skin, and when used before applying moisturizer serums, it helps to seal in a thin layer of water (hydration) which keeps your skin looking younger.

Choosing the right toner is very important. At KiVi, we call it the skin-appropriate toner.  For example, skin that is aging or environmentally damaged and experiencing the onset of wrinkles responds very well to neroli orange blossom flower water.

As the owner of KiVi Organics, I am passionate about providing people with natural and organic skincare products that nourish and enhance the skin. One of our best-selling product lines is our facial toners. I want to share with you why facial toners can benefit your skin and why KiVi Organics’ toners are the best choice.

Facial toners are an essential part of a skincare routine, offering multiple benefits to the skin. Our toners are specially formulated with all-natural, plant-based ingredients and free of synthetic fragrances or harsh chemicals, making them safe for all skin types. At KiVi Organics, we believe in using only the highest quality natural ingredients that provide the best benefits to your skin. KiVi’s toners are derived from liquids left over in the distillation process of extracting essential oils from plants. Extracting oils from flowers requires several hundred pounds of flowers to yield a mere ounce of oil. The amount of plant material used to extract that one ounce of essential oil creates three to four ounces of fragrant water. Our fragrant water toners are natural and loaded with minerals and vitamins. They are free of any synthetics or unnatural fragrances. We also ensure our products are cruelty-free and vegan, and we use eco-friendly packaging materials to minimize our environmental impact.

Our facial toners are specially formulated to meet the different needs of different skin types. Below are the KiVi recommended toners:

Neroli Orange Blossom Facial Toner. This toner is made from the fragrant water of the rare Neroli orange blossom flower. It is excellent for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps improve the skin’s elasticity.

Pure Rose Facial Toner is an excellent choice for non-problematic skin as well as all skin types. This toner is made with pure rose water, known for its hydrating and soothing properties and has a soft, heavenly fragrance. 

Chamomile and Helichrysum Toner is ideal for hypersensitive skin. Great for calming and soothing the skin, with natural and anti-inflammatory benefits.

All three of our toners contain natural sources of antioxidants that protect the skin and help to improve cell regeneration.  Aloe vera water is used in our toners for soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.  Apple cider vinegar is also included in all of our products to help rebalance the pH level of the skin and is a wonderful natural preservative.

The benefit of using a facial toner is an essential element of any skincare routine.

There is a fungus among us and within us!

By News No Comments

forest with light shining through

As it rejuvenates the Earth, it can also rejuvenate our bodies and skin.

In 2020, a friend recommended a Netflix film called Fantastic Fungi.

As I watched, I was transported to another world with mycology expert Paul Stamets. After I finished, I was in awe of the amazing network of eco-intelligence going on beneath and above the Earth’s surface, providing us with substances that give us life and from which we have derived. I’ve always been concerned about the environment and tried to get to the root (no pun intended) of the language of plants and how they relate to the human body and, more specifically, the skin.

In this film, Mr. Stamets states that fungi, as organisms, have intelligence and a language of their own that gives life, and it’s his mission and life’s work to understand this language.

Mr. Stamets gave me another piece of the puzzle in my quest to create skincare that helps the body rejuvenate the skin.

There are over 1.5 million species of fungi, which is six times more than plants, of which about twenty thousand produce mushrooms.

Many people associate mushrooms, fungi, or mold with death, decay, or psychedelics and are afraid of them.

According to food journalist and author Eugenia Bone, mushrooms represent rebirth and rejuvenation. They are not plants or animals, but are a Kingdom of their own.

Some mushrooms decompose dead and dying organisms. Fungi are present at the end and the beginning of life. Fantastic Fungi depicts mushrooms as the digestive tract of the forest.

The decomposers are called saprotrophs. The yeast and molds used in making wine, beer, and cheese are all saprotrophs. For example, penicillin mold contributes to creating Gorgonzola and Roquefort cheeses. Bourbon is made with fungi from fermented corn.

Saprotrophs can break down anything that is hydrocarbon-based. People like Mr. Stamets are harnessing the power of fungi to help us deal with man-made problems such as oil spills using fungi spores, which are mushroom seeds.

The fruiting body of the fungi is called the mushroom. However, the bulk of the organisms is underground, composed of long threads branching out in every direction. The mass of threads is known as mycelium. The network works with electrolytes or electrical pulses similar to our brain, forming massive links like a web. And like the internet, the mycelium allows a communication pathway called the mycorrhizal network, or CMN, through which all plant life communicates. Trees communicate with each other by trading nutrients through carbon, with mycelium acting as a conduit. According to Suzanne Simard, Ph D., University of British Columbia, “there are about 300 miles of fungi mycelium under every footstep we take all over the world.”

The Fungi Kingdom emerged on Earth 4.5 billion years ago, fertilizing the soil that created life.

So how does all this relate to skincare? When we understand how closely related we are to fungi and that we are descendants of mycelium, we can utilize their almost mystical benefits. They correct everything on Earth, helping to support life, convert life, or carry life. The fungi have inherited the Earth and are the most dominant species. We need them to exist. Suppose we learn to understand and respect a species of organism that has been around since the beginning of life, weathered time, and continues to dominate. If we do that, we can better understand how to protect our planet and, of course, our bodies.

Our gut microbiome consists of trillions of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes. The gut microbiome plays a vital role in our health because it helps control digestion, boosts your immune system, and helps in many different ways.

An unhealthy gut can significantly impact your overall health and your skin, including causing breakouts of spots, dry skin, psoriasis, inflammation, atopic dermatitis (eczema), and rosacea. The gut microbiome is the collection of bacteria in your intestines that influences your overall health, especially your skin.

In fact, the skin has a natural microbiome of its own. When we use synthetics or sub-natural products, we challenge the good bacteria, which creates its own issues. Mushrooms carry powerful antioxidant properties that help protect the skin from harmful environmental factors. They also reduce inflammation and soothe the skin, and studies have shown an improvement in pigmentation.

Mushrooms can help restore skin elasticity, increase moisture content, stimulate collagen synthesis, and have a skin-lightening effect; combined, this can make the skin look more healthy and reduce the signs of aging.

Studies have determined that up to 60% of a topical treatment to the skin goes into your bloodstream. That is why using organic, plant-based products on the skin is so important.

KiVi’s entire premise behind our skincare line is the penetration of healthy ingredients that soften and nourish the skin and bring beneficial nutrients into the body via the blood system, which travels through the body’s tissue fibre and organs. The body will not need to work extra hard to rid or equalize toxic substances such as chemical ingredients or the wrong plants or fats that carry lectins.

I have studied fungi ever since I watched Fantastic Fungi. After two years of research, I added mushrooms to some of KiVi’s products. As it is my mission to understand the organ of the skin and the impact of plants, herbs, and fungi on its health, I intend to make the finest products that bring health and beauty outside and in.

I highly recommend that readers watch this Netflix special, and I sincerely hope that it will be added to the curriculum in public and private schools early on in children’s education. We are at a rubicon today, and if we don’t soon understand how vital it is to keep our forest, we will destroy ourselves.

KiVi Organics - Organic Skin Care

Simple Skincare System Keeps You Looking and Feeling Younger

By News No Comments

Looking younger is easier than you think. You don’t need pharmaceutical chemicals or a complicated multistep system.  All you need is three simple steps – 1- Cleanse, 2- Tone, and 3- Moisturize. When you use the right product your skin exfoliates, balances, and rehydrates – all things needed to aid in younger healthier skin.

So how do you know the best solution for your skin? It’s all about the ingredients. The more natural and organic the better with the secret being in the herbs and essential oils.

You can regenerate healthy new skin cells, maintain skin elasticity and strength, help cologne production that makes your skin look full and plump, keep sun spots away, improve the smoothness of your skin, and maintain a vibrant youthful appearance all while keeping wrinkles and sagging skin at bay for years to come. The key is in the perfect balance of natural ingredients. 

The KiVi 3-Step is the most complete formula for just such a task.  Natural ingredients, meaning plant-based as close to their natural state, have a symbiotic relationship with the human body and skin.  When I founded KiVi Organics my mission was to keep my products clean and green, simply put, nutrition for the skin.  We all know that the skin being the largest organ of the body needs to be treated like the important organ that it is.  If we go to the trouble of taking supplements and vitamins, try to eat green products that are organic without GMOs pesticides and other chemicals then why not apply the same logic to what we put on our skin? The key to it all is cleansing, toning, and moisturizing with the right products.

  1. Cleansing – KiVi Organics Moisturizing Cleansing Cream works on all skin types, it is tonic as well as moisturizing. Cleansers for the face should not contain soap or alcohol especially for oil skin complexions, soap is very harsh on the facial skin and will dry out and stress it, increasing the odds of premature aging of the skin.  Soaps or alcohol-based cleansers will cause the sebaceous glands to overproduce oil to compensate for the stripping of the natural skin oils and this is double trouble for acne-prone or oily complexion skin types.  Using a lightweight oil such as jojoba which is the most similar seed oil to our own sebum or grapeseed oil (we use both in our cleanser) is wonderfully lightweight and non-disturbing to the skin. These two oils give the perfect amount of gentle moisturizing without leaving the skin feeling oily or waxy.  The herbs which are infused in our base oils (unique to other commercial bands)are measured to provide tonic and astringent properties which help the pores from getting dirt trapped inside as well as aiding to tighten them.  We combined this beautiful-based blend with a synergistic blend of anti-microbial, antiseptic, and anti viral essential oils and tonic Clary sage water. I’ve been using this cleanser for 20 years and have never once had a breakout, additionally great is that this moisturizer is a wonderful shaving cream for men!
  2. Toning the skin is really hydration of herbal or floral water which helps to close the pores and rehydrate the skin.  KiVi Pure Rose, Neroli, Cooling Chamomile, and Lavender Toners are all excellent at hydrating and aiding re-balance of the skin’s natural pH level.  There are skin types that work better with different toners. Our toners are designed to aid dehydrated or damaged skin types which may include older skin, normal skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, and oily skin complexions.  We have studied that the following toners are very helpful for the following complexions:
    1. Neroli Orange Blossom – Dry, Environmentally damaged, Aging or Older Skin
    2. Pure Rose – All skin types
    3. Chamomile – Sensitive skin types
    4. Lavender Sage – Oily Skin types
  3. KiVi Organics offers Three types of Moisturizers all of them contain varying cold-pressed base oils all being infused with Rosehip seed, Echinacea, Calendula, Comfrey, Horsetail, Melissa, and varying other herbs depending on the skin type all enriching and giving your skin much-needed vitamin support we also add supper oils of borage, evening primrose carrot seed, and rosehip seed. Beautiful combinations of essential oils and herbal extracts and waters top our vitamin fortified moisturizers.  Heaven for the skin.

The Recommended Products:

All of the KiVi skincare line is created with organic ingredients and packed with natural sources of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and healthy fatty acids.

We have bundled the simple skincare system in a 3-Step Bundle and it’s now available at a special price of $74.99, a savings over 10% when purchased individually! 

When you order the KiVi 3-Step you can pick and choose the toners and moisturizer best suited for your skin type.

Minimizing Wrinkles, Improving Skin Tone and Eliminating Skin Discoloration for Women over 45 years

By News No Comments

There exist seed oils and essential oils that can improve and even eliminate intrinsic wrinkles, improve sagging skin around the jawline and eyes, increase cell regeneration, and rebalance skin discoloration. 

The aging of your skin can be discussed as two entities: chronological and environmental.  Your skin is the largest organ of the body and it functions as the necessary interface between the internal and the external environment.  Utilizing specific plant and seed oils both carrier and essential oils will help minimize wrinkles and in some cases eliminate them.  Plant oils can increase the skin cell regeneration time which will improve the appearance of your skin, by making it look younger and more vibrant.  The difference between youthful skin and older skin is the regeneration time of new skin cells and healthy collagen which is the main structural protein in the extracellular matrix found in the body’s various connective tissues.  I’d like to talk about Rosehip seed oil in particular, which is a carrier oil (not to be confused with an essential oil, which it is not), and how rose hips seed oil can help improve your skin.   

As I’ve aged I’ve realized that time stops for no one, and for those who are blessed with growing old enough to see their children’s children, I think finding gratitude for growing old is essential.  That being said, I certainly still have the desire and the ability to stay as healthy and young as possible for as long as I can.  As I mentioned aging is chronological but what of the environmental aging element.  The environment that we surround ourselves in has a great impact on how we age.  Everything from airborne toxins like cigarettes and pollution, clean or not water, healthy and unhealthy food choices as well as alcohol, sugar drinks, caffeine, stress, even being negative can impact your skin, not to mention poor hygiene habits and lack of sleep.  Your skin being the largest organ of your body will reveal the overall health and wellness within your body.  Symptoms can manifest on the skin when there are issues within, symptoms such as acne in teens occur because of the hormonal changes that come with puberty.  When the immune system defends itself to keep microorganisms, such as certain bacteria, viruses, and fungi, out of the body, then we can experience rashes, watering puffy eyes,  skin that itches or may appear blotchy, sometimes hives appear, liver issues can make the skin appear yellow,  my point is that your skin can and does reveal a multitude of things going on within your body.  I have dedicated the last 20 years of my life to studying plants and how they relate to the human body and I have discovered that we can improve the condition of the skin and its appearance with plant oils such as the beautiful rosehip seed oil.  We can help our body and skin first off by living with balance, for example, I still drink coffee and have wine, I eat sweets from time to time, I’ve been known to lose sleep over laughter with family and friends, I for sure won’t give up my side-sleeping knowing full well that my puffy pillow creases my skin nor will I give up on my daily gardening in the sun and outdoor exercise so let’s discuss one of thousands of amazing plants that help slow down and even improve the aging of your skin.    

Beautiful Rose hips seed oil which is a carrier oil not to be confused with an essential oil is considered a super oil by botanists for its high levels of healthy fatty acids. So what exactly is  a Rosehip?  Rosehip seed oil is a pressed seed oil, extracted from the seeds of the wild rose bush Rosa rubiginosa  (Spanish: rosa mosqueta) in the southern Andes.  Rosehip seed oil can also be extracted from Rosa canina, which grows in many regions of the world including South Africa and Europe.  In particular, rosehip seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the wild rose bush  and they are the byproduct of a rose once bloomed.  Fresh rose hips contain a lot of vitamin C, so some people take it as a source of vitamin C in tables to prevent and treat colds, flu, and vitamin C deficiencies.  Rosehip seed oil benefits for your skin, hair, and nails are tremendous,  it is a popular anti-aging substance in the beauty community, though research supporting its benefits is limited.  Rosehip seeds are very high in polyunsaturated fats, which support the healthy skin membrane and protect your skin from inflammatory compounds, such as ultraviolet (UV) rays, cigarette smoke, and pollution.  It is very high in essential fatty acids:  linoleic acid or omega-6, and α-linolenic acid or omega-3.  Commission E research on rosehip oil has shown that it reduces skin pigmentation, discoloration, acne lesions, scars, and stretch marks, and helps retain the moisture of the skin delaying the appearance of wrinkles. It is truly an amazing seed oil and due to its heavy nature, it is suggested that the use of it topically should be up to five (5) percent of any formula.

I love adding  Rosehip seed oil to many of my skincare creations, some of which are, our best selling rejuvenation facial cream Viso di Fiori Facial Moisturizer – Day, which was created specifically for Mature, Aging or Environmentally damaged skin, the Viso Night-Time Cell Regeneration Serum,  the exceptionally healing and cell rejuvenating Anti-Wrinkle Botanical Serum 50+ (for women over 50) and Anti-Wrinkle Botanical Serum 40+ for women over 40.  KiVi Rejuvenating Eye Cream and KiVi Flawless Eye’s Serum also have the beautiful rosehip seed oil and lastly but not the least are KiVi Rejuvenation Mineral Masque and Nourishing Honey Love Facial Masque.  Let us not forget the body, KiVi has created an amazing everyday body serum that nourishes the skin, unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.  Our Everyday After Sun UV Mender will nourish, protect, heal and moisturize your skin leaving it toned, moisturized, and vibrant. In essence, Rosehip seed oil is a big favorite of mine when it comes to formulating my skin creations.   I like to refer to my products as  “topical vitamins for the skin” that help improve your skin and will never ever harm your body with synthetics or preservatives.   Wrinkles will make their appearance even if you choose not to laugh and sleep only on your back, while others may be experiencing that they may appear to look older than you actually are, which is known as premature aging of the skin, usually a symptom of what I referred to earlier as environmental aging caused by lifestyle choices.  I believe that we can always make things better with a little effort, every day is a new day and with each new day, we can make better choices than yesterday.   Small changes that may include eating better, drinking plenty of water, getting adequate sleep, and putting clean healthy plant-based products on your skin will help it recover rapidly.  Rosehip seed oil is just one of the many gifts that this planet has to offer and I’m so happy to include its rejuvenating benefits in our products.
