Clever words and catchy pictures are all too frequently used in magazines or on TV these days, and it seems that they are there to catch us out. Everyday skin-care lotions, hand soaps and shower gels and other ‘cure-alls’ look enticing with pictures of beautiful fruits and herbs extracts on the label.
But all too often the active ingredients emblazoned on the label are in minuscule quantities and as such, they are the last ingredient on the label – usually after a list of chemicals with unpronounceable names that few of us can understands.
The daughter of a customer wrote to us recently. She told us that her elderly mother uses a lot of Joint-Ease and finds it beneficial and she had read through the ingredients that we use in our product and concluded that while the ingredients were in her words ‘nothing that sounded suspicious in the product’, she went on to say that ‘ it seems to do the trick for her Mum’s discomfort’.
She went on to tell us that her mum had tried other products for leg and foot joint pain and cramps that her mum suffered from, but with not much success. We were very pleased to receive the letter.
We are proud of what we make and every day we try to find more customers who will buy what we make. In the years that we have been trading (since 2004) we have been a success but much of this is down to you – the happy customer.
We have nothing to hide, indeed our aim is for SkinLikes to be the best and most-natural skin and health-care product manufacturer to be found anywhere. The efforts that we put into making our products the best they can be, are the benefits that we offer to you.
Recently a doctor phoned the office and asked about the shelf-life and indeed why the lotion that she was using had turned as she described ‘a bit watery’. She told us that it worked just as well as it did when she bought, but it had become a bit thin. Our answer was to let her know that of course all the ingredients are natural. We could if she wished would add a chemical that would keep the lotion firmer, but it would be a chemical – and we just didn’t want to do that. What the doctor did find of interest was the fact that it’s the plant-based therapeutic essential oils that we use as the active ingredients that are the clever bit.
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years and this is where we have good expertise. Indeed, not many years ago in Egypt a tomb was opened and when the scientists did, they found some stone jars with tar-cloth for lids. When they opened the jars in the laboratory, much to their amazement they found that they contained essential oils.
Even more surprising to the scientists, but not to us, was the fact that the oils worked today just as well today as they did when they had been placed in the jars all those years ago – and probably the reason why the mummified bodies embalmed in essential oils have lasted so long. The doctor was satisfied with our explanation and told us that she would just carry on using the product. She has in the last week ordered fresh supplies.

The Skin is Wonderful!
Before we finish this article, we must remind you that our skin is the largest eliminatory organ in the body. It is a two-way membrane. Toxins are eliminated through the skin via perspiration but everything that you put on it absorbed through the skin into the body’s circulation system, and into you. It’s as though every square inch of your skin is like a thousand open mouths, absorbing into the body what is put on it. So that’s why it is important that we sell you products that are clean – and you read the label and have a think about what you put on your skin with everything else that you use. After all, we only get one body, so it’s best to look after it. We hope that you will agree.
