The OSKIA Teams New Years Resolutions.

11 January 2019 14:49

 


Now the entire OSKIA team is back in the office after the New Year, we are going full steam into 2019, refreshed, motivated and excited for the year ahead! We have all agreed it's not about going into the New Year and giving everything up, or restricting yourself, instead we are all trying to take on a healthier, more balanced way of life; drinking plenty of water, eating our five day and learning new things. We are all trying to put our general wellbeing at the forefront this year, whether that be our mental or physical wellbeing. We think it's really important to set yourself achievable goals and thought we would share some of ours with you, as a little inspiration.

GEORGIE CLEEVE: Founder

“I strongly don’t believe in giving things up, but rather taking things up. So, this year, I’m taking up something manual and therapeutic.... sewing. We’ve just moved to a new house, so there must be something I can try and make...perhaps a curtain or two.”

VICTORIA: New Product Development Manager

“I started de-cluttering last year (clearing out cupboards at home etc) and although it’s a bit of a bore to start with, you feel good getting rid of stuff, taking unwanted things to charity and they say a de-cluttered house is a de-cluttered mind. I think the New Year is a time when you naturally reflect on the year gone by and I always try and set goals for myself in the areas of health, finance, career etc.”

LOUISE: Operations Manager

“Spurred on by my daughter who has continued to enjoy her art and painted all of her own Christmas cards this year, I am going back to something which I enjoyed so much when I was at school. I have enrolled on a silver smithing course, and after just one session I’m already planning to have a little work bench at home. It’s totally me time!”

NEW! ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR NEW MSM BIO-PLUS

4 January 2019 14:06

Posted in: Ingredient Focus, Product Focus


Georgie Cleeve founded OSKIA and the concept of nutritional skincare in 2009 after witnessing first-hand the skincare benefits of MSM, a sulphur derivative more commonly known as the 'Beauty Mineral'. She was initially introduced to MSM by her father who introduced MSM to the market as a joint supplement for race horses over 30 years ago. Taking it to repair serious cartilage damage in her own knees she experienced a phenomenal response to the MSM and her joints repaired more than any surgeon had thought possible. But what had been less expected was the major improvement in the symptoms of her acne, eczema and generally poor skin, together with striking benefits to her complexion and the condition of her hair and nails. OSKIA has spent over 10 years perfecting the bio-availability of all our nutrients.
MSM, a naturally-occurring organic sulphur compound, supports the efficiency of healthy skin cells, helping to improve skin structure, elasticity and condition for a healthy-looking complexion, as well as helping to maintain the strong condition of hair and nails. These benefits have now been increased by blending MSM with an extract from black pepper fruits.


WHAT MADE YOU CREATE THIS PRODUCT?
“I’m always looking ways to improve the bio-availability of our nutrients, which is what OSKIA specialises in. MSM had such a profound effect on my life, my mobility, my skin and my confidence, that it is cornerstone of our brand’s ethos. So when I discovered a method of how to make our MSM even more potent, then I jumped at it. This combination is entirely unique to OSKIA.” Georgie 


HOW WILL THE SUPPLEMENT AFFECT MY SKIN?
MSM is known for a number of properties, including its ability to support the body’s production of collagen, keratin and glutathione (the body’s own key cellular anti-oxidant). It also has an amazing history of helping reduce inflammation, together with an ability to improve cellular function by making the cell walls work more efficiently which supports detoxification. Improving collagen levels, reducing inflammation and detoxifying skin cells are all major contributors to improved skin condition. It has been clinically proven to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation but also help calm skin conditions such as acne and eczema.


HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM OSKIA’S PURE MSM SUPPLEMENT?
Our Pure MSM has been a hero product since we launched OSKIA and we have so many devoted fans across the world who have seen amazing benefits to their skin condition since taking it. MSM and it’s remarkable benefits was the founding story behind the brand and OSKIA was the first to bring it to the cosmetics market. It would have been easy to keep it as it is, but we are always looking at how to improve our products, as science can move so quickly, so with MSM Bio-Plus we’ve seen an opportunity to enhance those results even further – to super-charge the benefits of Pure MSM – and in a more easily digestible capsule too, so we have jumped at the chance to keep on evolving and improving what we do.


WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE BLACK PEPPER INGREDIENT IN THE SUPPLEMENT?
MSM Bio-Plus still contains our pure, quadruple-distilled MSM, the purest available on the market. The Black Pepper extract has been incorporated to further increase the bio-availability of MSM, meaning the body is capable of absorbing even more of this amazing mineral. This specific patented extract has been proven in trials to increase the bio-availability of nutrients by up to 220%.

HOW LONG WAS THE PROCESS OF MAKING IT?
We have been looking for the right technology to super-charge our MSM for some time. Having found it, we then spent well over a year testing the inclusion levels and ensuring we had the perfect delivery system.


WHEN WILL WE SEE THE RESULTS?
Our advice to anyone taking supplements for skin health and condition is to wait for two skin cycles before judging the results, typically a minimum of 8 weeks. We do however have a whole host of feedback from people who have seen the benefits in a much, much shorter time frame.


HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TAKE IT?
We recommend you start with two capsules, twice a day, before reducing to two capsules every day. The design of these capsules makes them much easier to swallow. Is it pregnancy safe? Our founder continues to take MSM throughout all her pregnancies. However, it is always recommended to speak to your doctor. Often the advice is to only take a pregnancy supplement.


HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO TAKE IT?
The benefits that MSM Bio-Plus brings, are appreciated by all ages. There are lots of customers who take it as part of a general routine to support visibly healthy skin, others who look to its more ‘anti-ageing’ benefits. We also receive incredible feedback from people with problem skin, including acne, rosacea and eczema. MSM BioPlus’s ability to boost collagen and keratin production, but particularly its anti-inflammatory and detoxifying benefits, really help reduce the symptoms of these conditions, improving skin condition and with it, people’s confidence, which is the goal of all our products.


IS IT VEGAN? Yes

How to survive this party season

30 November 2018 16:11

 


The holiday season is finally upon us and as much as we’re excited to see close friends and family while hopping from one cocktails & canapes event to another, it’s also a time when we tend to overindulge. During busy social periods our skin will be one of the first to tell us when we’ve gone a step too far. One to many mulled wines, big meals and late nights and the festivities can start taking their toll, leaving us looking lacklustre and tired. There are however ways to contain some of the more obvious effects without compromising too much on the festive cheer.

Toxins found in food and drinks enter our body through digestion and then directly into our blood stream to be excreted by the liver, kidneys and skin. An easy way to balance all of Christmas’s delicious offerings and revelries is with a diet rich of brightly coloured fruits and vegetables, which are high in anti-oxidants. Foods high in anti-oxidants stimulate the liver which helps detoxify our blood, giving our liver a little more support and keeping it healthier. This will help reduce the amount of toxins reaching the skin and boost that holiday glow.


THE FOODS WE LOVE:


BEETROOTS AND CARROTS.
Both of these vivid root vegetables are power houses of beta-carotene, which is known to stimulate liver function.
LEAFY GREENS
You’ll have heard it before, and you will hear it again, but if you want to detox, try and get leafy greens in as many meals as possible, and they are packed with minerals and vitamins.
GRAPEFRUIT
Rich in glutathione, grapefruit works wonders to aid the liver detox. Also rich in Vitamin C, it helps the liver to produce the detoxifying enzymes that flush out pollutants.
WALNUTS
High in glutathione and omega-3 fatty acids, which all provide support to natural liver cleansing.
GARLIC
Garlic is rich in sulphur, which is essential for supporting the liver and activating liver enzymes that are responsible for flushing out toxins and waste from your body.
TUMERIC
If you know, you know. An incredible spice, bursting with anti-inflammatory anti-oxidants that will help repair liver cells, aid detoxification andprevent against cellular damage.


For an extra boost combine a healthy diet with supplements that are both specifically targeted at boosting skin health and anti-inflammatory, along with topical products that feed skin is vital for optimum skin health.

PURE MSM SUPPLEMENTS
Our Pure MSM Supplements have fantastic collagen-boosting, anti-inflammatory and skin strengthening benefits whilst also improving hair and nail condition to keep you looking tip top, and always party ready.
EYE WONDER
Our Eye Wonder is the perfect pick me up for tired looking eyes, it reduces dark circles, puffiness and increase radiance. As well as being ideal for under eye makeup die to the little oil content.
- Vitamin P strengthens the capillary walls to help reduce the appearance of dark circles.
- Arnica and Laminaria complex rich in decongestive Vitamin P strengthens capillary walls to reduce puffiness and dark circles by 24% and skin redness and irritation by 64.6%
RENAISSANCE MASK
For immediate spa facial results apply our Renaissance Mask for 10-20 minutes for and to instantly plump, brighten and illuminate.
- Natural Fruit Acids (AHA’s), exfoliate by gently unbinding cells in the top layer of the skin to activate renewal. Enzymes from papaya remove excess and tired skin, cleansing thoroughly and clearing congested pores.
- Ribose increases cell respiration and reloads the skin with new energy by stimulating ATP (cell energy) levels to revitalise and illuminate.
GET UP AND GLOW
The ultimate lightweight energising and anti-fatigue serum, that increases cell consumption and ATP energy to brighten and enliven your skin.
- Natural light reflecting pigments add lustre to tired skin.
- Riboxil™, known as The Beauty Sugar, energizes, revitalizes and brightens by boosting oxygen intake to recharge cell energy to benefit all cell processes.


Last but not least - stay hydrated. Hydration is not only key for good overall health but also for keeping your complexion supple, healthy and glowing. Make sure to drink at least 2 litres per day and try to avoid too many caffeinated drinks. We also recommend starting the day with a cup of hot water & lemon to help alkalise the body and neutralise acids caused by alcohol and unhealthy food.
