Are you going through your facial cleanser a bit too fast? Perhaps you have extremely sensitive and dry skin and find your cleanser slightly too concentrated or rich. Here are a few easy tips to make the most of your cleanser and to ensure that your skin ends up looking and feeling supple, soft and hydrated - in 5 simple steps.


Beauty Tip: Make The Most Of Your Cleanser

1. Wet your face. Do not apply your cleanser to dry skin - they usually works best on wet skin.

2. Use only one pump or squirt of cleanser per wash.

3. Rub the cleanser between your hands and gently massage into your face using your fingertips, avoiding the eyes. Do not rub or pull.

4. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water, making sure to remove any cleanser residue from your face. This step is really important, as invisible soap or detergent residue can cause dryness, irritation and redness.

5. Apply your moisturiser right after cleansing, and while your skin is still slightly wet, to lock in moisture.

When choosing your cleanser, carefully read the ingredient list, avoiding products that contain harsh ingredients that can irritate sensitive skin types. Ingredients to look out for include SLS (Sodium Laureth Sulfate), artificial colour and fragrance and preservatives like MI/MCI (Methylisothiazolinone/Methylchloroisothiazolinone).

To keep it ethical, stay away from palm oil and its derivatives like Sodium Palmate and Sodium Palm Kernelate, and check that your product is cruelty-free by looking for the Leaping Bunny certification logo.

Hemp Is Good

28/03/2015 13:53

Hemp [Cannabis sativa] is an amazing plant. In addition to over 10,000 years of manufacture for textiles, it has also been used for making paper, and in modern times for biodegradable plastics. Hemp grows abundantly without the need for pesticides. It helps detoxify and purify the soil and nourish it with nutrients. Furthermore, hemp also works as a natural weed control agent.


Hemp [Cannabis sativa] is an amazing plant. In addition to over 10,000 years of manufacture for textiles, it has also been used for making paper, and in modern times for biodegradable plastics. Hemp grows abundantly without the need for pesticides. It helps detoxify and purify the soil and nourish it with nutrients. Furthermore, hemp also works as a natural weed control agent.

All parts of the plant can be used for industrial purposes, and the seed is a magical reservoir of pure health. Some of the wonderful, healthy products that hemp provides us with include hemp protein and hemp seed oil.

A great alternative to whey or soya, hemp protein is a tasty nutritional supplement which is also rich in fibre. I have found that hemp is much easier to mix with liquids than other protein powders. Try it on its own in soya or almond milk, or in a yummy protein shake with banana or other fruit - great as a post-workout treat! Whether you want to avoid using whey because you are vegan, you are not a fan of soya because you are allergic to it, or you want some variety, give hemp protein a go.


Hemp seed oil is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFAs).

Hemp seed oil is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFAs). When buying hemp seed oil, make sure that it is unrefined, to get the most benefits from it. Unrefined oil will be deep green in colour and have a characteristic nutty aroma and fragrance. You can apply the oil directly on your skin, or use it as a dietary supplement. Because of its low smoking point, hemp seed oil is not recommended for cooking. Try it instead as a salad dressing - it goes great with lemon or yuzu juice.

Raw hemp seeds are delicious as a morning cereal or porridge topper. To make them taste even nicer, dry-roast hemp seeds in a pan over low heat for a few minutes. Add tamari or shoyu sauce at the very end to create an absolutely finger-licking salad sprinkle.


Research has shown that hemp seed oil can be useful in treating symptoms of atopic dermatitis and eczema.

There are many medicinal uses for hemp: from pain management to appetite stimulant, and as potential treatment for symptoms of MS, cancer and Parkinson's Disease.

Research has shown that hemp seed oil can be useful in treating symptoms of atopic dermatitis and eczema. MuLondon Organic Hemp moisturiser contains a high percentage of certified organic, cold-pressed hemp seed oil. Combined with rosemary antioxidant and essential oils of cedarwood, vetivert and black spruce, this green and woody-smelling healing balm helps with issues like oily, acne-prone and problem skin, as confirmed by many happy customers.

By signing The Hemp Industries Association's Test Pledge, MuLondon commits to implement quality control measures which limit the amount of trace residual THC in shelled hemp seed and oil, thus eliminating the risk of a confirmed positive drug test.

The Organic Hemp Moisturiser is one of MuLondon's best selling products. Fresh, woody, smoky, green and mystical – this moisturiser heals and protects with organic ingredients – shea butter, golden jojoba and a high percentage of pure cold-pressed hemp seed oil. Added oils of black spruce and vetivert root create a uniquely fragranced cream that appeals to both men and women.



MuLondon Signs Test Pledge For Hemp Products


The Test Pledge program was created to ensure customers that hemp seed oil is safe and can not cause a false positive on a drug test. We commend MuLondon for their participation and for their use of hemp seed oil in their product.”, commented Eric Steenstra, Executive Director of The Hemp Industries Association.

Despite the EU laws severely limiting the amount of allowed THC in hemp, there's still some confusion regarding the effects that hemp products can have on drug tests. By signing the Test Pledge, customers enjoying MuLondon's organic skincare products that contain hemp can keep doing so without any concerns, while still benefiting from the amazing healing properties of this unique plant.

Be Politically Compassionate

28/02/2015 17:51

 

With the UK General Election approaching, it's time to re-evaluate our political affiliations. Animals are counting on our support. Those vulnerable and without a voice need us to take a stance and cast our votes in the most compassionate way possible.


Union Jack

The two parties with the biggest focus on animal rights in the UK are:

The Animal Welfare Party, which aims to take animal issues to the top of the political agenda. They do this by setting the best policies for animals, encouraging existing political parties to become more animal friendly and contesting elections.

The Green Party, which has some of strongest policies on animal protection of all the parliamentary political parties and a proven track record of action in Europe.

Animal Aid's dedicated website "Vote for Animals" allows you to review many political parties' manifestos on animal issues and see how your MP feels about key animal topics. By simply entering your postcode, you'll be able to see how your MP has voted on the Hunting Act, the badger cull, use of wild animals in circuses and other important motions. You can also send your own message to thank your MP for their ethical stance or to encourage them to support animal protection measures that matter most to you. How amazing is that?

Make sure to also check out "Vote Cruelty Free", set up by the BUAV. The website helps you find out which of your candidates will take action to reverse the rise in animal tests, so you can make a decision if you want to support them. It's as easy as entering your postcode and choosing which of your local politicians to tweet.

However you decide to vote, make sure that you are an informed, compassionately passionate voter. Your animals need you!
