I created a natural and Vegan shampoo bar called Solibar… 🌿

Sitting at home one afternoon, I was watching my daughter (one) play with her toys, most of which are made from plastic in one way or another. It got me thinking.

The world we live in today is all about the end result. We choose products for the desired outcome without considering the consequences of these products and furthermore their effect on our health or the environment. 🌿

There are chemical additions to everything we eat, we use, we clean and even we wear. These chemicals are the bad guys. And whilst they have allowed us to achieve a higher form of convenience, they are resulting in a lower form of health.

Born out of the need to find a product that doesn’t contain unnecessary chemicals for my toddler, I created a shampoo bar called Solibar.

Solibar is a natural and Vegan shampoo bar that is designed to moisturise your hair whilst giving you the amazing benefits of natural ingredients.

As a baseline, all of my Solibar’s contain coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil and shea butter. Where they differ is the inclusion of super ingredients like zinc, Alkanet Root, French Pink Clay, and French Yellow Clay – which are all incredible ingredients designed to promote hair growth and keep sensitivities at bay.

The best part – they’re all handmade in Melbourne! Which makes them individually unique but loveable at the same time.

I wanted to create a shampoo bar that was going to:

shampoo your hair in the same way as conventional shampoo 🧖🏼‍♀️

be the best option for healthy haircare & not contain any nasties 🌴

decrease the need for conditioner, by creating a bar that is moisturising 💆‍♂️ 

not contribute to the already increasing rubbish created by plastic bottles 🌿

 

So, if you’ve thought about making the switch to a healthy haircare alternative – now is the time to do it. Head to the website and check out my Solibarswww.solibar.co (And the pics below)

Vibradermabrasion – Refresh your skin

Have the effects of a long hot summer have left your skin feeling tired, dry and red? Then it is time for a Vibradermabrasion session at
Vitruvius Divine.

What is Vibraderambrasion?

In short, Vibradermabrasion is a new therapy designed to exfoliate any part of the skin. It works by non-invasively removing the stratum corneum (the skin’s outter most layer). Once exfoliated your skin will become more permeable thus resulting in the restoration of moisture through proceeding with skin hydration therapy.

Vibradermabrasion improves the look of skin by cleaning and the removal of dead skin cells. During treatments therapists will apply a hydrating therapy to continue the dermal infusion of the skin. Vibradermabrasion in combination with the high quality skin care products available at Vitruvius Divine will help you to achieve the skin you want.

VibradermVibradermabrasion can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions:

  • Acne scaring
  • Early signs of ageing  – fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scaring from lesions
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Sun damage and dull skin
  • Poor skin texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Skin discolouration and age spots
  • Keratosis pilaris (arm bumps)

As a painless and quick treatment, no aftercare is required and patients will be able to apply makeup directly after. At Virtruvius Divine, we recommend a series of  30 minute treatments to ensure the best results. Results will also vary.

Poke me, prod me, smooth me

Once I was eighteen, a skinny teenager that was behind the wheel of an 80’s Corolla rocking the streets of Melbourne and becoming an adult. As difficult as high school was, I survived. But there is no amount of money that I would accept to ever go back to being a hormone filled teen.

MeStarting year 7, I weighed in at measly 29kgs. I wasn’t heavy enough to make the adjustable seats in the library go down by myself. Being skinny was more problematic than good. Because I was so tiny, I was forever copping the Anorexic taunts by fuller figure bodies. Psychologically this meant that I was scared to bare my legs for fear of the bullying.

Being extremely skinny and small meant that I lacked the physical development of most of the other girls my age. Alongside this came various hurtful words by males who forever joked that I was a ‘surfboard’, and I looked ‘the same back and front’.

The irony is now, that I grew taller than most of these vicious people. I have the boobs that I forever longed for. And I still remain to be skinny.

googlegenAs I scan my classroom these days, I realize that the percentage of really tiny girls is lessened. The ability to wear age inappropriate clothes is made more accessible by cheap clothing store chains. Moreover, these girls look older than I ever did. Not to mention the access to information via the web is astronomically higher in this Google Generation than it has ever been.

All more skilled and experienced in the adult world, they still suffer the same torment that I experienced myself. Their issues of body consciousness can come on a hell of a lot earlier than it ever did for me.

What is clear that no matter you size or shape, there is always something that we want to fix change and alter. There is always a better version of us. So how to we find it?27-club-1_26217

I remember reading once, that most women feel body satisfaction at the age of 27. Meaning that no longer their struggles to find the best version of themselves exist. In addition, could the increase of cosmetic surgery procedures to this elevated this sense of self content?

In keeping with this theme, and the endless search to find information on procedures that really work. I have decided to start blogging about my experiences with non-surgical cosmetic procedures.

I am to follow the list of procedures outlined at Vitruvius Divine Cosmetic Clinic, and provide my readers will real feedback and results.598676_371024446311318_1181718054_n I am going to take the clinic for a test drive and leave you in the passenger seat.

The clinic will be on hand to answer any questions that you might have about each of the treatments, and the professional clinicians will provide me with medical information.

The first on my list will be Fat Cavitation. The therapy aims to provide localized ultrasound technology to areas of subcutaneous fat. So does it work? I am eager to find out.

In the meantime, stay tuned.
