Reishi helps to fight lines and wrinkles and promotes cellular rejuvenation, while coconut water and oil are deeply hydrating and moisturizing. Shea and aloe are added for their superior moisturizing properties. If you’re looking for face-care products that cleanse and detoxify, protect against environmental toxins, fight aging, and help you put your best face forward, this is the one to try.
Matcha Made in Heaven
BioChem100% Whey Protein Matcha Tea is made with grass-fed whey protein processed using a special heat-free, chemical-free method. The result is a pure, undenatured whey protein that retains important branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), while removing unwanted lactose, cholesterol, and fat. This is combined with matcha tea, naturally rich in calming L-theanine, EGCG (known to help reduce appetite), and antioxidant polyphenols. Sweetened only with stevia, it mixes easily for a smooth and creamy shake. BioChem’s 100% Whey Protein is also available in four other flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, Coconut, and Cocoa Coconut. It’s gluten-free, non-GMO, and contains no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners.
Style Meets Eco-Friendly Innovation
There’s no doubt that disposable tableware made from plastic and paper is convenient. But plastic contributes to toxic pollution, clutters landfills, and never degrades, while paper products contribute to deforestation. Enter EcoSouLife Husk Reusable tableware. These plates, bowls, utensils, and drinkware are made from rice husks in a process that repurposes the organic waste from manufacturing rice-waste that would otherwise be burned, creating harmful CO2 gas. They’re elegant and durable, yet they biodegrade within three years if tossed out. And you can use them in the dishwasher and microwave. Try the company’s other, equally chic tableware lines too, including Bamboo Reusable and Cornstarch Disposable.
