The idea to create this natural, nurturing skin oil was born as I began planning for motherhood.
I became more focused on maintaining excellent health and wellbeing for myself and my sweet unborn baby. I developed an interest in how the skin worked and became passionate about learning to take the best care of my skin using only the best that nature produced.
After switching to a healthy plant based diet rich in nutrients, that would sustain me well throughout my pregnancy and give my baby the best possible start in life, I gave a great deal of thought to what else I could do to nourish and protect us both and combat the toll that today’s life takes on the skin.
Further research confirmed that many skin and body care products contain toxic ingredients including parabens, synthetic colours and artificial fragrance. And I was definitely not keen in trying the latest beauty fad; snail cream.
It made sense to replace all my potentially harmful skin and body care products with gentle natural products that would infuse my skin with essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fatty acids which would help it grow and adapt to my changing body whilst preventing stretch marks, maintaining soft silky skin and attaining a healthy radiant glow.
My journey of exploration into botanicals, oils and other natural ingredients empowered me to develop a safe, nutrient-dense and ultra-hydrating plant based product which was 100% natural, light and easily absorbed and gave the glowing results of soft, supple and radiant skin.
As the skin on my belly grew and stretched I massaged my highly concentrated oil on it twice daily and within weeks I, along with others, began noticing considerable change.
As others began commenting and noticing my changing skin, I realised that my mission in life was to help not only other moms-to-be to feel confident, and comfortable in their skin, but also all women alike.
My beautiful son Lion's entrance into the world, and my puppy Loki's loyalty and company throughout my pregnancy is what inspired Afterglow to be launched as my gift to all the women in the world concerned about caring for their skin as mother nature intended; safely and naturally. My skin oil removed the need to compromise between health and beauty.
I hope you enjoy the comfort and confidence you will gain from pampering your skin with Afterglow.
