Anti-aging skin care – what does it mean and when should you start using it?

We know a lot about looking after our skin- how to cleanse it, and why it’s so important; when to moisturise and when to nourish. Those matters will always be discussed every now and again. The real trick is to know, when to enrich your daily skincare ritual with anti-aging products. What does ‘anti-aging’ even mean? It is crucial to fully understand the answer to this question, as it allows you to have realistic expectations towards such skin care products, and not be disappointed. Some believe that our skin begins aging slowly, from birth onwards. It’s not necessarily...

The use of preservatives in natural cosmetics

This is an interesting subject. It certainly pays off to have a base of knowledge about preservatives, to always choose a better-quality product and be sure of the effects it will have on your health. These days, a lot of brands advertise as “preservative free”. Personally, I recommend a careful assessment before believing such claims, unless it is in fact a wax or oil based product (in which case preservatives truly are unnecessary; microorganisms are unlikely to thrive in such). Proceed with caution when faced with empty marketing promises or plain false advertising: often, the...

Case study: Allergy

My girlfriends suggested I should write an article about allergies, as this topic is often discussed by our blog readers and users of Resibo cosmetics. I used to be allergic to all sorts of things most of my life. However, for a couple of years now I don’t suffer from any allergy symptoms anymore, despite never trying to get rid of them consciously. I must clearly state that I am not a doctor, and this entry is not medical advice. Also, it is not a scientific elaborate; nor is it a recipe for getting rid of...

Hyaluronic Acid – the main performer

An ingredient that is well known to almost every woman and even to some men, Hyaluronic Acid is no longer just a chemical compound used by specialists, doctors, chemists or pharmacists. But is it really worth its fame and reputation? It surely is! If I were to pinpoint a substance that is closest to a youth elixir, it would certainly be Hyaluronic Acid! Despite it’s name, it shouldn’t be mistaken with fruit derived acids that can irritate and exfoliate the skin. It’s a Polysaccharide that is naturally found in the human body in the form of...

More is not better

I’ve been planning to make this entry for a long time… actually it’s been years since I started thinking about it, but one of yesterday‘s comments at Resibo’s fan page finally encouraged me to do it. One of our fans, Anne, commented on an article at livingnatural.pl about the Resibo Ultra Moisturising Face Cream. She wrote, “It’s so hard to believe that a drop is enough, because I have never stinted on a cream.” So here is the topic… is a drop enough or not? When I ponder on such dilemmas as Anne’s, I remember myself from...

Let’s talk about care during pregnancy, also in cosmetic salons!

In emails, you often ask whether our cosmetics can be used in pregnancy. My answer is yes! Our products are safe for pregnant women and above all for the baby. Natural mixtures are well protected against the development of microbes, mould and mildew with delicate preservatives, approved by ECOCERT for use in natural cosmetic products. Simultaneously, these ingredients are used in the food industry (although this comparative is not as reliable as ECOCERT, considering what manufacturers want us to put on our plates). I greatly recommend paying attention to what we apply on our skin. Most...

Avoid oil? No way!

Today I am going to talk about oil… again! It’s not my usual area of expertise but I want to tell you how I fell in love with Resibo Cleansing Oil. Yes, the oil that started the Resibo brand. I am the owner of skin with visible capillaries. If you are too, then you know that its better than sensitive skin (as you can always cover it with tones of foundation) but also how problematic life is because of it. Sun? Avoid! Winter temperatures changes? Tragedy! Sauna? Don’t even think about stepping in! Alcohol? Better not!...

What Is Designed For Everything It Is Actually For Nothing 

I wrote this article after being inspired by one of the internet users who posted on our fan page: "All great and beautiful and I would even order some, but when I see products suitable for ‘all skin types’, I say: no, thank you". Why do versatile products cause such aversion? Is it really true, that if there is something for everything then it is for nothing? Why Resibo products are designed for all skin types? Our products will work for the great majority of the population. I know it is hard to agree with this. For example,...
