Schmoo Skincare

Many of you will have seen over the last few weeks that I have decided to team up with a new company called Schmoo to offer you all some wonderful new luxury facial and body treatments and skin care products. After some fab training with Schmoo a couple of weeks ago I thought it was about time I filled you all in on a little bit more about the brand and what’s on offer!

Who are Schmoo?schmoo

Schmoo skincare was set up by a lady called Fiona Otley who is a trained therapist and wanted to find a product range for her own spas that was organic, affordable and which also provided something new and different to other products on offer.

She decided to make her own exciting products with high quality natural extracts at the core. The products have been stripped back to only include high quality organic ingredients that give dramatic results without harmful chemicals, removing all of the confusion over what actually goes into the products on offer.

What’s in the Schmoo products?

Fruit extracts were chosen as the core of the range as they offer incredible benefits to the skin. Fruits have been used in skincare products for centuries because they offer such wonderful benefits and have been proven to help with the anti-aging process as well as having protective properties for the skin. Fruits are:

  • Rich in antioxidants
  • Full of essential vitamins
  • Crucial in preventing premature aging
  • Effective in fighting congestion, dryness and dehydration
  • Highly protective against environmental damage

Fruit ingredients can be sourced organically and all of the fruit extracts used in Schmoo’s products are organic.

What’s not in the products?

All Schmoo skincare products are free of the following:

  • Parabens

Chemical preservatives which are used to maintain the shelf life of a product. Generally used by companies as they are effective and inexpensive however they are said to be carcinogenic and have been linked to cancer.

  • Sulphates (SLS and SLES)

A sulphate is an inexpensive chemical used in cosmetics as an effective foaming agent and is used in anything from shampoo, facial wash, washing up liquid, detergents and even car cleaners! These can strip the skin completely, not only of excess oil but also of our skins natural protective oils.

  • Lanolin

Lanolin is known as wool wax or wool fat and is a waxy substance secreted from sebaceous glands of sheep and is extracted from their wool. It is used in a lot of cosmetic products as it has moisturising properties and will bulk out the product. It is however a relatively common allergen that can cause irritation and allergies in many consumers.  This is because pesticides and fertilisers are used on the faming land and the chemicals are ingested when the sheep eat the grass, and therefore are secreted into the lanolin.

What treatments are available?
