In Atlantia we say NO to products tested in animals

More than 100 million animals are treated cruelly each year in laboratories with the objective of testing ingredients whose final product will reach the customer imminently.

Beforehand, since 2009 the sale and manufacture of cosmetic products in the European Union that have been tested on animals is totally prohibited. Four years later, the testing of toxic products was also banned, although there is an extension until the year 2023 for its full and final implementation.

What does it consist of and how does it affect animals?

atlantia2Testing animals involves handling animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits, dogs, cats and even chickens, in most cases,making them try products and see the reaction they produce in them.

Some of the practices that are carried out are those of observing changes in the skin, the hair or seeing the functioning of the organs through practices that range from inhaling hair lacquers to forcibly introducing dentrifics into the stomach of the animals.

Differentiate whether a product is or is not tested on animals is as simple as checking the label of the product and see if it has the “cruelty free” or “not tested on animals” seal. This means that neither the final product nor any of its ingredients have been tested and we will be looking at a product that is respectful and compassionate to animals.

Yes to cruelty free

atlantia3For all those who want to know what products are those that make tests on animals, there are also mobile applications that indicate whether or not they are cruelty free. Although some of these apps are paid, many others are free: Cruelty free, Bunny free, Choose cruelty or Happy bunny, among others.

Nowadays there are still many brands that test, but every time the trend towards makeup and natural cosmetics increases, which makes us tremendously happy, since from Atlantia we advocate the purity and naturalness of the products, without testing in animals and also without parabens.

Is it testing strictly necessary?

atlantia4Definitely not, since there are many other alternative methods to animal testing. An example of this is to do it through the creation of artificial tissues of cultured human cells and bacterial systems or computer simulations, among many other options.

Nowadays there are companies dedicated to the search for alternatives that do not involve tests on animals, but this requires a particular investment to achieve the objective. On the other hand, it is also necessary that the analyses of these “fictitious” experiments be 100% reliable and demonstrable so that they can be applied to the products without harming the public health.

What is the age to start taking care of our skin?

Age is a number and, although each person is a world and ages at a different pace and form, experts agree that the age to start taking care of the skin should not be later than 25 years.

The skin is the most significant organ of the body and the most exposed to external agents, which is why we must take care of it with greater responsibily. Some of these factors are stress, feeding, lack of sleep or continuous exposture to the sun, among others.

By ages

The first thing we need to know is what kind of skin we have. From there, the next step is to adapt your care according to the age range in which we find ourselves.

When your 20

atlantia8We could say that during our twenties the skin of the face is “impeccable”. It is true that there may be outbreaks of acne or other conditions, but it all depends on the type of skin. Therefore, the most important thing during this stage is prevention, especially against the sun´s rays.

When your 30

atlantia9This is the the moment in which the first signs of age on the skin begin to manifest in our skin: spots, loss of elasticity, changes in coloring… In this point is really essential to carry out fibrotensing, moisturizing treatments and include some weekly mask to hydrate and complete the daily routine to reduce wrinkles and maintain perfect skin.

When your 40

atlantia10Irremediably, the skin begins to look flabby and tired especially in the area of the face and neck. After 40 years, the key is cell renewal, as the face begins to blur and the goal is to recover part of thar elasticity, especially in the eye area.

When your 50

atlantia11At this point, the signs of expression and wrinkles are broader, there are spots, and the skin tends to be drier. It is an age of hormonal changes, which manifests itself in the state of the skin.

Whatever the age range you are in, the priority is always to protect yourself against the sun´s rays and carry out a proper hydratation routine.

Daily routine

Skin care should be a mandatory task at least twice a day, following the steps below and without age restrictions.

atlantia12– Cleaning: practically the most important. Face cleaning with a specific product such as our cleansing mousse, for all skin types and without allergens. Its use, at least twice a day and especially at night, since when sleeping is when the skin regenerates.

– Exfoliation: at least one a week, since this way dead skin cells are eliminated at the same time we regenerate it, we provide shine and softness.

atlantia13– Hydration: always adapted to our skin type and with the aim of avoiding dryness and wrinkles, hydration is a priority in skin care.

– Sun protection: Regardless of the time of year, sun protection is always mandatory.

In general terms, the skin will look healthy if, apart from pampering you with the steps mentioned above, we eat healthy food, drink water or exercise, among others.

Can you recognize a quality aloe vera?

On the basis that it does not exist any product that contains 100% aloe vera as a unique ingredient of its composition, problems related to the manufacturing process, commercialization and quality of this plant has risen up over the years.

Aloe vera has been used since Ancient Egypt, but now we have discovered the benefits that this plant provides to our organism and the capacity to palliate lots of its illnesses.

Cultivation of aloe vera in Canary Islands

Fresh leaves of aloe vera. isolated on white background

If we want the product to maintain all its properties, convenient atmospheric conditions must happen during the cultivation of the plant, such as a hot and windy environment, water, pH, and watering frequency.

All of our products are fabricated from the ecological cultivation of the plant, denomination attributed by the C.R.A.E ( Regulatory Board of Ecologial Agriculture).

As a result, we obtain organic aloe vera, non-transgenic and without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or fungicides.

Products made 100% of aloe vera?

Completely wrong. Before putting in our basket a product that indicates a 100% aloe vera composition we should stop to read its label. We must look, in all products, for the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients), since it will be organized depending on the percentage they have on its composition.

18010707_1286232701431525_1855574181895730849_n

It is not impossible to have a product made 100% of aloe vera, but it is impossible to send it to the consumer with the same freshness as the leafs that have been recently cut. Products need to have a small percentage of preservatives to avoid its breakdown and to be able to get to the customer´s home with the best quality possible.

Another consideration would be that containers must always be hermetically closed, avoiding the solar light and wind to enter, and as a consequence, keeping all their properties.

Ethics, professionalism and quality

Slice Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis Mill.Star cactus Aloe Aloin Jafferabad or Barbados) a very useful herbal medicine for skin care and hair care.

In Atlantia we inform ethically and professionally about the real process of canary aloe vera and its quality.

Consequently, we support organisms as AFAVECAN (Association of manufacturers of aloe vera of Canary Islands), created in 2016 and with the aim of driving the commercialization of aloe vera local products outside of the Canary Islands.

This appears due to the fraud that has been generated around products manufactured with powdered extract that simulate being pures and originated in Canary Islands, even announcing it in the packaging.

So, ¿what is the objective of this organism? Boosting canary industry and report the production of aloe vera that does not meet the requirements of quality of the plant.

Contour, the forgotten in facial care

Why should we take care of him?

The contour is considered the most fragile area of the face, as it is at least 10 times thinner than the rest. It is constantly exposed to external agents such as sun, cold or wind and is one of the first areas that ages before, which is more than enough reason to give it special care.

Its fine collagen and elastin fibers cause loss of elasticity over time, resulting in dreaded wrinkles, fine lines and premature fatigue.

Although there is no specific age to start taking care of your skin, experts agree that starting at age 25 is a good moment to do so, because is the moment when the skin star to change.

Perfect contour with aloe vera

Pure Aloe vera  is the perfect ally for the eye contour, since it moisturizes the area while acting as an anti-aging, antioxidant and decongestive agent. It also reduces fatigue and signs of aging, giving the skin radiance and elasticity.

OJO-CONTORNO

It should be borne in mind that sometimes the effectiveness of a product will depend on how we apply them.

It is necessary to know that the product should be applied in the contour with the ring finger (it has the least force) and give brief touches in the fixed eyelids, until its complete absorption.

For men and women

eye-perfect-eye-contour

In Atlantia we have created Eye Perfect, a product for the care of the eye contour. This cream, formulated with aloe vera and Eyeliss, an active ingredient rich in peptides that strengthen capillaries and prevent bags in the eyes.

It also provides minerals, amino acids, vitamins A, B, C and a powerful moisturizing and regenerating action of the tissues.

A small amount twice a day (morning and evening) reduces eye bags by up to 65% for both men and women. Choose the best option, choose Atlantia.

DEPILACION-ALOE

Aloe vera, natural soothing after depilation

Depilation is part of our daily lives whether we like it or not. Regardless of the way in which it is done, a series of recommendations must be taken into account before and after removing hair from the body.

From Atlantia, we recommend a daily skin care, but especially after depilation, because if the skin is not treated properly may appear irritations, redness and in the most extreme cases burns.

Before, during and after depilation

EXFOLIACION

The first step towards healthy, hydrated and, in this case, depilated skin is exfoliation. Ideally, take a hot shower to open the pores and then massage the areas to be shaved with a mane glove and some neutral soap or directly with an exfoliating product.

Once the hair is done, it will come out easily no matter what form it is used to remove it: blade, depilatory cream, electric razor, wax or laser. Ideally, taking a cold shower after depilation will help to soothe the skin and close the pores again, thus avoiding infection.

SUPERDEFENSE

As a last, if not the most important, step, is the hydration of the shaved areas. In this sense, our product Superdefense, enriched with shea butter, pure aloe vera and vitamin E, will help strengthen the skin’s natural systems while nourishing and repairing it.

Immediate Relief

Take care your hair in winter months

Hair is one of the areas of our body in which aspects such as life habits or the attitude we take to it are manifested. Specifically in these winter months, where the cold, wind and excessive humidity are present, we must be specially careful with our scalp and devote more time and care.

One of the most important things is not to abuse tools like iron or dryer, as they release excessive heat and can do more damage to the scalp.

Take care of your hair naturally!

Many factors determine the quality of our hair: number of weekly washes, diet, brushing and care… Whatever your hair routine, from Atlantia we recommend aloe vera as a star ingredient for the care of your hair:

NAVIDAD

This Christmas choose the best option: Atlantia

Every year at Christmas we hear the same thing on the streets: “Seems like Christmas comes early every time.” and later: “What do I buy you? What size do you wear? Will you like it?”

The time of year has come when we forget the healthy and balanced diet, there is a greater consumption of alcohol and lower temperatures, factors that have a direct influence on skin care. This is the reason why we must remedy all these excesses naturally with the best cosmetics in the Canary Islands.

Cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing

EXFOLIATEWith the external factors that affect us this time of year, it is important to thoroughly cleanse the skin and exfoliate at least once a week.

With this last step described, you’ll get your skin to homogenize, retexturize and cleanse quickly and effectively, removing any residue that may have originated during the holiday season.

The exfoliation is a technique that should not miss in the routine of daily care since it eliminates dead cells and impurities, helping to achieve a radiant skin.

Hydration, key point

At Christmas, heavy environments cause the dreaded dehydration of the skin. This is why you should drink enough water and stay hydrated throughout the day.

Another important point is to protect ourselves from the sun’s rays with some natural cosmetics product with a factor of protection because, although more indirectly and at low temperatures, we continue to receive sunlight.

Another important point is to protect ourselves from the sun´s rays with some natural cosmetics product with a factor of protection because,

REGESTIMUL

Rose hip, the ideal choice for wound healing

What is it and why is it beneficial?

Rosehip, s a shrub native to Eastern Europe that has multiple health benefits.

Although rose hip it is usually used to reduce and regenerate skin problems such as scars or stretch marks, it can also be consumed as an infusion or oral route.

Many people know rose hip as the seed of eternal youth and it attracts attention with its pink flowers and reddish fruits with a slightly oval shape. Rather than its appearance, it is a widely used ingredient in natural cosmetic because of its condition as an essential oil rich in unsaturated fatty acids.

Rose hip on the skin

As we have commented throughout this post, rosehip has multiple uses, but the most common is topical use. Due to its positive properties, it repairs damaged skin thanks to the revitalizing action of skin cells, which produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

Its multiple vitamins (A, C, B1, B2 and F) combine with oleic and linolebranch rosehip with leaves isolated on white background.ic fatty acids, beta-carotene, tannins and antioxidant flavonoids, making it a highly beneficial shrub.

It also speeds up the healing of scars or, at least, reduces their appearance and prevents unpleasant and unsightly stretch marks.

Other topical benefits of rose hip are to slow down aging, improve pigmentation or revitalize the skin, providing a healthier appearance.

The fashion superfood wich everyone is looking for: aloe vera

Fashion superfood, that’s how many people define it today. With a total of 19 amino acids in its composition, aloe vera is a strong step and opts to become a superfood. Its minerals, vitamins, proteins, protective resins and polysaccharides make it one of the plants with the greatest benefits for the organism and human health.

Activation of the immune system, effective against diabetes and constipation are some of the benefits of the already considered superfood of the moment. At this point we are talking about superfood, which encompasses all those foods that provide beneficial nutrients and antioxidants for health.

How does aloe vera taste?

bigstock--173961103-min

Once we have removed the bitter part of the plant, called aloin, the taste of aloe vera is virtually imperceptible, perhaps with a bitter touch with a slight herbaceous flavor.

Apart from its nutritional properties, it is also gelifying, stabilizing and emulsifying, allowing to improve the textures of the ingredients without modifying its flavor.

Many people use the plant as a supplement in a balanced diet because it promotes normal cholesterol levels, promotes cardiovascular health, aids digestion and strengthens the immune system.

How to take it?

If you are looking for your own recipes with this superfood, you only have to peel the leaves well, without leaving any traces of green peel, and leave them to soak for at least one night.

Once this is done, aloe vera must be treated like any other vegetable, even if it can consume the flowers of the plant, keeping its properties intact.

At this point, from Atlantia we recommend taking special care when taking aloe vera in children and pregnant women because we do not know 100% of its effects in this band.

Superfood quality

bigstock-Asian-Street-Market-Selling-Fr-138358358-min

In this particular case we must make sure that we are taking aloe vera of quality and that it has been cultivated in the best conditions.

This is the case of Atlantia, products whose main raw material is the aloe vera cultivated in the Canary Islands. The climate of the Canary Islands ensures that the plant grows with 100% natural active ingredients and minerals.

Aloe vera, an ideal plant to combat menstrual cramps

Menstruation is a temporary condition that women experience naturally every 28 days. In most cases, it is a process that causes aches and pains that, although they vary, can be present throughout the entire period. For this type of discomfort, aloe vera is a good ally.

Today, there are specific medicines to combat pain or reduce swelling, but since Atlantia we have always opted for the natural, such as the consumption of infusions or plants such as aloe vera to alleviate these discomforts.

Aloe vera, good for the stomach

bigstock-Aloe-Juice-86405741-min (1)

The purity of aloe vera manages to regulate the hormonal disorder that can cause menstruation, both in the case of dysmenorrhea and amenorrhea.

On the other hand, it is beneficial for the stomach, as it regulates the pH of the stomach and reduces acidity thanks to the vitamins of the B complex, present in the aloe gel.

Other useful uses of aloe make it help reduce inflammation, regenerate gastric mucous membranes or reduce constipation.

Betting on naturalness

During these days, specialists recommend drinking decaffeinated beverages, using heat in the abdomen or exercising, among other recommendations.

In this sense, the use of a thermal bag will reduce muscle spasms and provide relief in the affected area. On the other hand, a good exercise routine will help release endorphins, reducing menstruation symptoms.

Another option may be to take supplements such as calcium, vitamin D and magnesium as part of a healthy diet.

Complete your routine

BIALOESince Atlantia, we believe that Bialoe is the ideal choice to take care of you from the inside and benefit from all the properties of the plant in a fast and easy way.

This product is made from juice extracted from the aloe vera leaves filleted, preserves all the active ingredients of the plant and promotes the body’s well-being, making you feel healthier.
