Why We Carry Osmosis
You may be wondering why a chiropractic clinic would carry a skincare and makeup line. It sounds odd until you understand that we are more than just a chiropractic clinic. We service a wide range of patients, but our specialty is working with those that have complex health issues. With any lack of wellness always comes with a lack of proper detoxification in the body. There are many reasons why detox pathways become overburdened; one thing that can contribute to this is toxic skincare and makeup products. Often, these products have known carcinogens, heavy metals and toxic chemicals. It is common thought that products placed topically do not cross our skin barrier, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Anything we place on our skin bypasses the liver (the liver helps breakdown toxicants into safer forms for the body to process and excrete) and goes directly into the bloodstream. Once inside the body, the toxic products have the ability to wreck havoc on our hormones and can even contribute to weight gain. Not to mention, as this toxic burden builds overtime, systems can start to malfunction contributing to many forms of illness. One important component of healing is detoxification. After years of working with patients, we know the importance of removing sources of toxicity and utilizing safer versions of products previously used.
What is osmosis?
Osmosis is a holistic skincare line developed and formulated by Dr. Ben Johnson, with the goal of changing the direction of skin care. Moving away from excessive exfoliation and renewing the focus of dermal remodeling. It works on every skin condition, on every skin type.
The product range has created a great deal of excitement in the beauty industry, thanks to its unique action and outstanding results. Osmosis provides the tools needed to create the ideal environment to encourage permanent change and overall radiance. Their unique philosophy is based on analyzing the skin and body as a whole to treat skin conditions at their source, restoring beauty and wellness.
The Osmosis Colour line is an extension of the skincare line. It features beautiful long-wearing colors. The multiple base colors can be found in various shades ranging from cool, neutral or warm tones. It's makeup that doesn't feel like makeup and gives a wide range of coverage. The line consists of safely developed, triple-milled minerals. They do not include minerals that give a chalky look on the skin, but rather a soft dewy look. The line is complete with blushes, eye shadow, liners, brow gels, lip color, high-quality brushes, etc. Each product is formulated with skin-nourishing ingredients, including goji berry, vitamins, antioxidants, peptides, as well as zinc oxide for built-in UV sun protection.. All products are free from: titanium oxide, bismuth, gluten, fillers, phthalates, parabens, colorants, and fragrance.
How we personally started using Osmosis
We are always looking for great products that fit our personal philosophy about health. After previously being an eczema sufferer for years when I (Dr. Abby) was sick. After years of stress and battling an autoimmunity, my skin was not the same. I had aged rapidly and my once smooth and even complected skin was no more. When I was deep in the trenches of illness, I had barely thought about what I looked like. Now, with a new found energy and no more rashes (yay!). I knew I needed more than just my coconut oil to heal the damage my skin had endured. I needed something that worked to heal the cells not only on the surface of my skin, but deep within the epidermis. I was looking for a healing line that could turn my skin around.
One day, while listening to a favorite podcast, heard Dr. Ben Johnson being interviewed. The science behind the line and the formulations all seemed quite amazing. Shortly after this, I started experimenting with Osmosis Skincare for myself. Every product I used worked beautifully and left my skin looking younger and better. My dry skin became balanced and I no longer needed to even moisturize my face since it had become so healthy and balanced. My personal stash grew and I began using Osmosis Colour. I had not worn makeup in years because, in the past, I had often reacted to it. Not to mention, most of the natural products I had used on special occasions basically disappeared after a couple hours of wear. Again, I was shocked how well the colour looked. It stayed on my skin all day and did not feel like makeup at all.
It was after we saw how great Osmosis was at home that we decided to carry the line on our office. The rest is history and we now have a lot of Osmosis lovers within our staff and clientele!
Osmosis products focus on being highly effective by utilizing all-natural and alternative methods to improve skin conditions. Many well-known skin care manufacturers develop products that contain chemical ingredients, meant to promote deep penetration, in their goal to correct difficult skin conditions. These products, though, can cause unwanted inflammation and irritation. Unlike most other manufacturers, Osmosis attempts to avoid ingredients that weaken and inflame the skin to make progress. It believes in achieving results without causing potential problems or negative side effects. It achieves this by infusing its products with nutrients that are natural and non-inflammatory.
Osmosis stresses and achieves adequate skin penetration with products that feed the skin in the repair process. It uses 17 patented ingredients that work naturally to improve numerous problem skin conditions. The ingredients specifically address tough skin damage issues such as scar tissue buildup, lack of elastin/collagen production, DNA damage and skin-growth deficiencies. Its methods and products are unique, but effective. Osmosis is a member of www.safecosmetics.org, so a high level of care is taken in avoiding unsafe chemical products and preservatives.
