Daily Mail talks Organics and Rosacea

Sarah Brown is the founder of Pai Skincare. Entrepreneur, mum and sensitive-skinned soul.

The Daily Mail has been talking Pai’s language this week with two features on subjects very close to our heart.

Alice Hart-Davies began the week with her exposé piece entitled ‘The organic myth: The label says organic but how ‘natural’ are the products you’re forking out for?’

The article points out that while in the US, big brands such as Jason and Boots are being sued for their false ‘organic’ claims, there remains no labelling regulation on the use of the terms ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ in the European cosmetics industry.

So how do you tell a fake from a true organic product? You guessed it – read the label (as if I haven’t told you enough times!).

I’ll be writing a couple of posts next week on what exactly you should be looking out for in terms of ingredients and certification bodies, but as Alice points out what you really want is a Soil Association symbol – meaning that over 70% of the product is organically farmed and extracted.

The other skin related feature that grabbed our attention in Tuesday’s paper (this time by Laura Tennant), shone a light on Rosacea.

Like many sufferers of this condition, Laura’s Rosacea didn’t develop until her 40s, and for a long time her oily, bumpy and flushed skin was misdiagnosed as adult acne.

Laura’s article points out the sad truth that 13% of Rosacea sufferers avoid socialising because of their flushing.


If that sounds like you then why not try our Skin Confidence-boosting Chamomile & Rosehip Calming Day Cream, which not only reduces redness but also strengthens the skin – making future flushes less likely.
