oil twice a day is an essential anti-aging
treatment. It also prevents split ends.

your cosmetics

RECIPE
Mix the argan oil with the carrot oil. Next add the mica until your mixture is uniform. Pour it into the empty and clean vial. Shelf life: 6 months.

Shake well before each use and apply to wet skin after the shower. Warm up the product between your hands and then massage into your skin. Store in a cool, dark place, and vial must be air-tight. You can also add an antioxidant like vitamin E.

Why you should use natural products

Short lists of ingredients that you can actually understand.
Encrypting and understanding the ingredients of your day cream or shampoo requires a certain amount of knowledge… and we don’t all have PhDs in pharmacology. With natural products, everything is simple: no preservatives or dyes. We can get everything we need from the plants themselves.

 

 

To treat the skin and hair with respect
Most “standard” cosmetics contain chemical substances that progressively damage the skin after years of use. On the other hand, natural cosmetics are made of 90% natural ingredients. Their effects are known and so there’s
zero risk. They act gently to nourish and clean the skin and hair because they are free of harmful and dangerous products.

 

 

A (good) deed for the planet
Think of the future generations! The ingredients used are biodegradable and do not pollute the earth. In addition to the new brands available in the niche market, most wellknown
brands are now trying to limit the use of plastic packaging or offer products in bulk to limit waste.

 

 

 

Quality you can feel
The trend to “go green” has also spread to the perfume industry. Natural perfumes are made only of natural ingredients, leaving behind a fragrance that is both light and authentic. They are stripped of synthetic ingredients, and are produced with organic alcohol made from the fermentation of wheat and essential oils.

 

 

Widely accessible
Over the years, these products have become more accessible. We can now find them in major stores, drug stores or even in small local businesses. You can even make your own beauty products (On Feb. 13th, will be poublished a DYI for you to make your own oil !)

Everything you need to know about banana !

Bananas are good for mental and physical health, and they provide energy… but they also contribute largely to the island’s economy! Focus on a fruit of many virtues.

History

The banana was brought to Martinique by the Portuguese in the 16th century. But it was of little importance in Guadeloupe until the 20th century. In 1928, a cyclone ravaged the coffee and cocoa plantations. That is when the first banana trees were planted, but it was in the sixties that banana production developed significantly.

Distinctive features

The banana “tree” is in fact a giant herbaceous plant. Once plant – ed, the young banana plant takes nine months to reach full fruit-producing maturity. When it does, the banana flower, or “popotte” emerges, followed by a bunch of bananas which will be picked nine weeks later. In the meantime, biodegradable plastic bags are used to protect the bananas from birds and insects. The fruit becomes ripe for consumption three to four weeks after being harvested.

Cooking

Bananas are used in numerous West Indian dishes, such as chicken colombo (plantain) and pâtés, or incorporat – ed into cheese-topped dishes cooked in the oven, made into crisps or Spanish-style fritters, or even blended into cocktails.

Organic cultivation

Nowadays, banana growers are taking care to limit the use of pesticides. More and more, they are committing to organic and sustainable methods. Good to know: banana skins make an excellent fertilizer.
