Sukin, a skincare brand from down under that could be big up here !

Sukin Only Natural

Sukin was launched in 2007 by a Melbourne based family on a mission to provide high quality, affordable and effective natural skin and hair care.  We’ve stocked some Sukin products for many years now but, in line with our new drive to support products which truly love the environment as well offering quality and value, we’ve just increased the range. As to quality I have no doubts, you don’t get to be Australia’s No. 1 selling natural skin and haircare range without being a brand that works, especially in a comparatively harsh environment like down under.

As for eco credentials Sukin have chosen to make that the core of their ethos from the start. As their website puts it : “Skincare that doesn’t cost the earth” is our tagline which reflects our affordable price positioning and also touches on Sukin’s natural formulations and earth friendly brand ethos, these elements have resonated well with our customers.

Product of the Month – Viridian Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3

Product of the Month Viridian Vitamin D

In my opinion Vitamin D3 is one of the most important nutrients, especially in winter. In fact the UK Government advises that people who are housebound or cover their skin for long periods, all pregnant and breastfeeding women, people over 65 years of age and infants from 6 months to aged 5 should take vitamin D supplements. While we can get some vitamin D from dietary sources such as fish, cheese, eggs and fortified foods, we mostly make it through sun exposure (and opportunity can be limited in Ireland). As we get almost no sun exposure in winter, supplementation is the only way to go. Apart completely from its role in maintaining good bone and muscle health it can be particularly beneficial in winter for two reasons.

Firstly it’s a direct stimulus for immunity. In particular it triggers and arms the body’s T cells, the cells in the body that seek out and destroy any invading bacteria and viruses. Secondly SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder (commonly called Winter Blues) seems to be more prevalent when vitamin D levels are low and research shows that supplementation can be an effective treatment for it. 
With this in mind we’ve taken on Viridian’s full Vitamin D range for the following reasons. Unlike many ranges Viridian supplements contain no fillers or excipients, every ingredient has a therapeutic value. They’re all vegan (Viridian use mushrooms and lichens as sources)  unlike many vitamin D supplements which derive from lanolin. They offer options in drops and capsule form which are suitable for all ages and needs. No other supplement company stands for ethics, sustainability and highest quality like Viridian does.
