Back to Nature Made Skin
BY DR. JAMEEL DENNIS
As the earth reflects the damage we have caused the environment, so does our skin.
Ona moisturizing cream is a formula designed to nourish, balance, soothe, and rejuvenate the skin by replenishing oils and other nutrients that are stripped away with harsh soaps or gradually decline with age.
As an adolescent growing up in New York City, environmentalists and government entities alike were urgently explaining the significant and potentially life threatening damage being done to the environment by industrial pollution as well as deforestation. I experienced how impactful exposure to chemicals and toxins can be after an allergic reaction to laundry detergent as a child. I became acutely aware of how the composition of products that come in contact with our bodies can impact our quality of life. Dyes, chemicals and fragrances found in detergents, soaps, and moisturizing creams can cause major skin irritation and general feelings of discomfort. This experience reinforced my growing curiosities about the environment, pollution and its impact on living organisms.
I have learned through a growing body of information available not only about the health benefits of natural products but also scientific analyses to determine how those benefits are achieved.
As a scientist, my interest in science and specifically plants are an integral part of my life. I have always sought opportunities to unite my western training with my passion for traditional/natural medical practices. This passion has allowed me to create quality personal and beauty care products that embody the principles of healthy living free of harmful chemicals and toxins.
