Our skin is exposed to many personal care products that contain potentially harmful ingredients such as parabens, synthetic colours, fragrance, phthalates, triclosan, SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate), formaldehyde, and toulene, to name but a few.
These chemicals when absorbed into the skin are thought to lead to premature ageing, allergic reactions, hormone disruption, as well as being linked to cancer.

Around 60% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream.
The older I get the more aware of what I’m putting on my skin, as well as what goes into it, so a couple of years ago I found out about a new skincare company called Tropic Skincare and decided to become one of their Ambassadors. Since then I’ve become obsessed with reading the ingredients labels on any skincare and makeup products I buy.
Tropic Skincare was founded by Susan Ma, a runner-up on BBC1’s The Apprentice in 2011. She has a passion for natural beauty and skincare and was given the opportunity to present her vision to Lord Alan Sugar, who was so impressed, that he became a 50/50 partner in the Tropic Skincare business. It has since become one of the fastest growing natural, cruelty-free, and vegan brands in the UK, winning numerous beauty awards, and going from strength to strength.
Tropic Skincare uses only naturally derived ingredients, that are free from harmful toxic chemicals, is Vegan Society approved, and all products carry the Leaping Bunny logo.
