  • What does it mean to bio hack skin and body

    What does it mean to bio hack skin and body

    The human body is a wonderful source of regenerative energy, and when we feel our best, we tend to excel in life and function at an optimum level. This invigorates our innate ability to weather the stresses of modern life and the way our bio-systems handle pressure – which ultimately affects the condition of our skin and organs. Empowering this stress-busting capability and making use of its full range of potential is key for ultimate health, which explains why biohacking – lifestyle changes that ‘hack’ your body to be more susceptible to energetic flow, recovery, healing and balance – can be so transformative.

    WHO technical document of the use of non-pharmaceutical forms of Artemisia

    Research on the herbal remedies used in the past has led to the discovery of malaria treatments that have saved millions of lives. The powdered bark of the cinchona tree was used to treat malaria, initially in South America and later across the globe. Quinine was first isolated from cinchona tree bark in 1820, and the pure compound quickly demonstrated greater potency than the hot infusions of the bark. With the availability of the pure compound, appropriate dosage could be established and the first modern chemotherapeutic agent against malaria was born (1,2).

    Use Alcohol Hand Sanitisers Responsibly

    Africology is deeply committed to the health and wellbeing of the entire body, not just the skin, and my extensive research of the best possible protocols to prevent the spread of the coronavirus required understanding exactly what we need to protect ourselves from – and how. From considering the air we breathe to every surface that we touch, it's vitally important to understand how this virus makes its way into our bodies, and to choose a sanitising formulation that contains the most effective actives to help stop the outbreak in its tracks.

    Celebrating Inner Beauty

    This Women's Day, we're inspired by the words of Audrey Hepburn, who said that a woman's true beauty is reflected in her soul. The wisdom that we gain with age is an immense source of inner stability and for each of us, there comes a time when we team to let go of the ties that bind our souls - when we free ourselves from ego and self-sabotaging notions of right and wrong. It's when we finally step into our own light, and away from external demands that threaten our authenticity.

    Preservatives and How to Avoid Them

    In a world that values cheap and fast, that values the destructive over the beautiful, there is a desperate need for companies to modify their ethos and behaviour in order to fight against the ruin of the planet by the selfish. One only has to look at the blatant disregard for consumer health by many multinationals to be aware of the great potential companies have to change the situation.

    The Beauty and Necessity in Caring For Ourselves and the Earth

    It is hard not to be overwhelmed by the constant and frightening revelations of what is happening to our beautiful Earth. Daily we are met with new facts and images of rising temperatures, accelerated natural disasters, deforestation, food scarcity, extreme weather conditions and more. It is obvious to us all that our selfish and short-sighted treatment of this planet and its once-abundant resources is now costing us dearly.

    Our sense of smell is the first we gain, and the last we lose. Through scent we recognise family, and through fragrance we are uplifted. Important moments are marked by scent – of a baby’s skin, of a beloved’s aftershave, of granny’s baking. It’s the warmth of a family dinner, the jacket of a father hanging in a cupboard. Smells have warned us, guided us and reminded us.

    Is your skin care free from heavy metals? Our chelation process.

    Chelating agents are used in cosmetic formulations to bind metals and to help them pass through the body. Africology uses Sodium Phytate, which is a white, odour-free powder that is easily/readily water soluble. It is used as a chelate/cheating agent to boost the antimicrobial activity of preservatives, improve the efficacy of antioxidants, and stabilize products against the effects of metal contamination.

    Natural Formulations in our Africology products

    Nature possesses intelligence that can never be replicated by humans, ever-changing yet constant in its effects. The tomato that grew yesterday may not be the same colour and texture as the one of tomorrow, but the benefits of the tomato stay the same. In this modern age humans, with the help of laboratory science, can engineer colours, textures and aromas to create products that are called ‘nature-identical’.
