From time to time we receive emails that note slight changes in our products, so we thought we’d do a blog post on why our products change slightly from batch to batch.
Sometimes our products melt, or vary in colour and scent, so we wanted to assure you that Sunset follows strict recipes, and that variation in our products is not an indication of quality changes in ingredients; it's the beauty of a truly natural product.
We expect the ultimate consistency in high street skincare products. We expect the cosmetic products we buy from well-known high street brands to be exactly the same every time we buy them, and would probably be confused if we bought a product that we regularly used to find it was a different colour or had a slightly different smell, even when buying a “natural” product. Whilst we maybe wouldn’t leave a product out in the sun, we also wouldn’t expect it to melt or change consistency.

Should we question this attitude to cosmetics and expectation of consistency?
Did you know that 60% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into the bloodstream?
The skin is not an impenetrable barrier, which is why some medication can be delivered through patches and gels. In fact, the skin is the body’s largest organ - so it’s paramount that we take care of what we put on it!
Not only are many chemicals in cosmetics small enough to be absorbed by the skin, some are designed to penetrate quickly and easily, like nanoparticles and ‘penetration enhancers’ found in many deodorants.
Shockingly, these penetration enhancers found in...
Hi! This Sunday I'm going to go through the products that I picked up from the workshop recently to keep me going during quarantine. Some new and old favourites here!
⬩ Organic Bamboo Toothbrush
It is recommended to change toothbrushes every few months, for hygiene reasons. It is shocking to think of how much environmental damage has been caused all the years we have been buying plastic toothbrushes in plastic packaging.
Our bamboo toothbrushes were one of our first zero waste accessories that we stock as an alternative to plastic toothbrushes and remain one of my favourites. All the family use these toothbrushes and they are a staple in our house.
I topped up my Eye Cream in this workshop haul, because it is amazing for reducing the appearance of fine lines and stress under the eyes, which is...
