Raw Gaia Review and Giveaway Ends Aug 19, 2010

Raw Gaia is the world's first range of living organic skin care products and organic beauty products, hand-made using only cold-pressed, organic, vegan, cruelty- and chemical-free ingredients.
Their natural & organic skincare products have outstanding skin moisturising and uplifting qualities because they are absolutely pure, alive and made with the Earth's most nourishing and beautifying skin care ingredients, which are far more effective than any chemical or artificial moisturisers.
Through a special low temperature process, Raw Gaia's organic skin care products retain all the life energy, antoioxidants, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids in the ingredients, which help to moisturise, heal and revitalise all kinds of skin.
Raw Gaia is one of the most ethical companies you'll find anywhere in the world. All their ingredients are organic, vegan, cruelty-free and free from any chemicals.
What makes Raw Gaia stand out is that we use only 100% organic, living and vegan ingredients such as cold-pressed butters and oils as well as high-grade essential oils. Moreover, their products are made following a process that avoids temperatures beyond 40°C. In this way, the life force of the ingredients and all their antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, etc., are retained. All these nutrients are then available to nourish your skin, without leaving any surface residues.

The importance of raw, living skin care
Simply put, the main benefit of a raw, living skin care product is that your body nourishes from the existing life force of the ingredients. In contrast, subjecting to high temperatures destroy most of this living energy.
Raw ingredients provide additional benefits to the skin through their:
  • Antioxidants: Antioxidants help to keep the skin supple and beautiful by neutralizing free radicals. Free radical exposure eventually leads to hidden inflammation and eventually, wrinkles and ageing skin. 
  • Minerals: These occur naturally in our bodies and are found in our most common foods. Sulphur for example is essential to make the skin soft and elastic since it is an essential component of all connective tissues.
  • Vitamins: They are beneficial to damaged and distressed skin. Vitamin C for example, is especially useful for the skin under the eyes.
  • Omega 6 Fatty Acids: Present in oils such as primrose and borage seed oils, they have been shown to gradually improve eczema and moisturise dry, cracking and/or scaling skin.
I really like that Raw Gaia's products do not contain any nasty petrochemicals, artificial colourants and parfums, glycols, lauryl sulphates, parabens, preservatives, synthetic additives, bulking agents or hidden ingredients and 
A magical cream that helps to promote a vibrant and smooth complexion. Especially good for mature skin, the MSM within acts as ‘the beauty mineral’ combining perfectly with frankincense and myrrh essential oils.  I love how little you need to use of this cream.  It absorbes very well into your skin leaving it really soft.  This left my  skin very Bright looking. But not greasy.   I really like this little treasure. 
Raw Gaia's MSM Beauty Cream is made with:
  • Organic cacao butter* which helps to regenerate skin cells and restore elasticity. 
  • Organic apricot kernel oil*, a non-greasy emollient which is perfect for tired, mature and sensitive skin.
  • Organic jojoba oil*: a natural humectant, jojoba is known for its soothing and healing properties in cases of inflamed skin, psoriases, eczema and acne.
  • Wildcrafted frankincense essential oil which helps to nourish and revitalise mature skin.
  • Wildcrafted myrrh essential oil, well-known for its cooling and healing properties
(* denotes cold-pressed)
Suitable for all skin types, especially good for mature, tired or damaged skin.
For Best Results: Use a very small amount at first. You will gradually find the amount that works best for you. To give your face a nice silky feel you can either apply the moisturiser to a wet face or mist one of our floral waters after applying.
This is a gorgeous face pack that helps to promote a smooth and toned complexion. Made with nourishing and beautifying ingredients including Raw Chocolate Powder, which has the highest known source of antioxidants in the world. 
   It is made with four natural ingredients carefully chosen for their nourishing and beautifying properties: Raw Chocolate Powder which has the highest known source of antioxidants in the world-, Red clay, organic turmeric and organic amla fruit powder.
Raw Gaia’s rich and exotic Raw Chocolate Face Pack will gently cleanse your skin and help to draw out toxins. It is suitable for all skin types and for both men and women.
This was alot of fun to try out.  It did leave a little tingle when I applied this to my face but when I washed it off it really left my skin clean and soft.  To use  Simply Blend 1 teaspoon of Raw Chocolate Face Pack with water to form a thick cream. Apply onto washed face, leave for 5-10 minutes and then rinse off.
Shikakai means "fruit for hair" and is a 100% natural shampoo powder. It is an excellent cleanser but doesn’t strip the hair of its natural oils. Moreover, it detangles the hair and works wonders as a natural conditioner.
This has a very natural, earthy smell and it really left my hair soft and shiny. This was fairly easy to use. I did have to use a bit more as my hair is super long.  To use create a thick paste by mixing a small amount of Shikakai powder with water. Gently massage the paste into the scalp and hair using your fingertips. Wait 2 to 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with water.  Because of its stringent qualities, Shikakai naturally removes the dirt and excess oil accumulated on the scalp.
  • Shikakai promotes strong, beautiful hair in several ways:
  • Provides new life to hair strands
  • Strengthens hair roots
  • Increases bounciness and silkiness of hair
  • Promotes hair growth.
Containing no dye content Shikakai powder is great for hair preperation before using natural hair dyes. Cleaner and better conditioned hair will absorb more of the natural dyes giving you a better colour result.
Shikakai is made from “Acacia Concinna”, a small shrub-like tree which grows in the warm, dry plains of central India. Raw Gaia’s Shikakai is wildcrafted and free from chemicals. Once the plant is harvested the fruit pods, leaves and bark of the plant are sun-dried and powdered.
Ingredients: Wildcrafted, sun-dried Shikakai powder
