Natural hair and skin products by Anita Grant

Sustainable beauty products
Sustainable beauty is all about going back to the fundamentals of nature, back to our roots as it were. As a child my mother used pure cocoa butter on our skin as well as coconut oil she made herself. So I grew up using natural products and am always on the look for pure wholesome products for my skin and hair. So I’m quite excited to share my latest find –Anita Grant’s natural hair and skincare range mixed by hand just for you.

When I discovered Anita’s hair and skincare range I was like a kid in a candy store and wanted to try everything. There are hair and body butters, organic fruit oils, organic brazilian oils, organic Kelp + Ylang Babassu Shampoo Bars etc. Anita's products are fresh, nutritious and made from plant-based ingredients ethically sourced from farming communities and/or partnerships with fair trade and organic suppliers throughout the world.

Unrefined Shea Butter
I have used pure unrefined shea butter on my hair, face and body for years and can attest to how silky soft it leaves my skin and hair. I don’t know of any off the shelve hair and skin product that moisturises my skin and hair as well especially in the winter. It is also an amazing foot cream. The best thing is that shea butter is naturally enriched with vitamins A & E which are vital for hair and skin. What better way to nourish our skin and hair than with naturally enriched products?

We are what we eat

The old adage “we are what we eat” does not only apply to what we put in our months but also applies to what we ingest through the pores in our skin and scalps. Because up to 60% of what we apply on our skin can be absorbed into our blood stream, it stands to reason that any product you are using on your face and hands and hair should be safe enough to eat.

This amaretto di cupuacu looks absolutely good enough to eat. Made from Organic Cupuaçu butter and Organic Andiroba oil, this body butter is bursting with essential nutrients needed for the development of healthy skin and cell membranes. Our bodies derive little benefit from synthetic concoctions but will flourish from nutritional hair and skin products such as Anita’s.

Very importantly Anita keeps it natural and uses no synthetic chemicals in her hair and skincare range. For instance this Organic Kelp + Ylang Babassu Shampoo Bar contains no contaminants such as Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), phthalate, artificial colours, sodium polyacrylate, petroleum based detergents, propylene glycols or any added vegetable glycerine or animal products. Each shampoo bars is handmade from scratch, individually cut & wrapped.
