Although we are a skin care business that specialises in botanical cosmetology, that's the technical term for creating useful pure plant-based skin care. We also appreciate that treating skin starts from the inside and for the best skin we recommend a holistic approach. That includes what you put into your body, as it's directly reflected on the outside. I have a fantastic supercharged strawberry smoothie recipe that is perfect for feeding your skin. I also love this smoothie because my kids love it too, it's all about the strawberry. And any time I can sneak some more veggies into my kid's diets, it's a winner in books.
