I want to personally welcome you to the Oasis Serene™ Botanicals website – home of anti-aging skin care designed to enhance health in the area of skin care products by using safe, non-toxic and natural anti-aging ingredients.
As a stage three colon cancer survivor of eleven years, I realized early during my recovery the need for skin care products that would not add more toxins to the body. I was surprised to find skin care products in many natural health stores that were full of chemicals yet were being advertised as “safe”. Non-toxic skin care products are especially important for those who are working on their health and/or trying to heal from any type of health concern. Oasis Serene™ Botanical’s came into existence because of my desire to provide skin care products that would not impede the healing process by adding more toxins to the body but would also work to help the skin look healthy and glowing.
All of the product ingredients sourced for the manufacturing of Oasis Serene Botanicals™ products are organically certified, wild crafted or as pure and close to a natural state as we can obtain. Products and ingredients are sourced and made in the USA in GMP compliant facilities.
You will notice that we do carry products from other manufacturers. These products are some of the best in the natural skin care industry and provide ingredients that are recognized as safe and effective by the EWG (Environmental Working Group).
Did you know that according to a 2005 survey of 2,300 adults by the Environmental Working Group, the average woman can encounter as many as 168 chemical ingredients through personal care products and men can encounter an average of 85 chemicals every day? With 90% of the 10,500 different chemicals used in personal care products never evaluated for safety, our skin is a potential sponge for toxic chemicals that might cause cancer, reproductive problems or other health concerns. Not to mention that some of these chemicals can be extremely harmful to the environment.
But should we really be concerned about what we put on our skin? The answer is absolutely! The concern is that we are applying these multi-chemical-laden products daily and creating a build-up of chemicals in our bodies (stored in fat cells) that may only cause harm after years of use. Some preservative chemicals (like parabens) used in many skin care products have been shown to mimic the hormone estrogen, with the very real possibility of creating serious health concerns.
Like it or not, your skin will be with you for the rest of your life. Your skin serves you and your body in a number of ways. It aids in sensory perception, protects you from injuries, provides a barrier against dehydration, assists in temperature maintenance, removes toxic wastes, aids in the manufacture of vitamin D, and provides structure to the organs and tissues within your body. To put it lightly, your skin is an integral part of your life. It’s essential that you care for it and maintain it in a healthy state so that it will continue to function well for you as you age.
Pour yourself a cup of herbal tea, relax and browse our informative articles and product pages. I believe that you will like what you see….safe and effective spa-quality anti-aging products at affordable prices.
