Hydration and Moisturization: We Need Both for Healthy Skin…

Our skin is composed of 64% water, so keeping it hydrated is necessary for Active Wellness. The word “hydration” is connected to water. Hydrating the skin therefore means increasing its water content. Hydrated skin is smooth, glowing and has an even tone. When skin is dehydrated, it can appear flaky, dull and dry. However, people often tend to confuse dehydrated skin with dry skin. Although used synonymously, there is an underlying difference between the two. Dehydrated skin lacks water, whereas dry skin lacks a fair amount of sebum, which is the oil secreted by the sebaceous glands present in the skin.

How can we tell the difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin? The two have notably different indicators. Dry skin may present as itchy, red, flaky and irritated, while dehydrated skin may show up as dull, wrinkly, lined, puffiness and shadows around the eyes, dry mouth and increased sensitivity.1

There are ways to hydrate the skin but there are also ways to moisturize it. Hydration and moisturization actually involve two separate processes. Hydration of the skin occurs when we add water to it. It temporarily fills skin cells to give it a fuller feel. It’s temporary because skin releases water when there is nothing to help retain it – the most obvious way is through perspiration but exposure to wind, sun and other elements expedite the discharge of water.

Drinking a lot of water, in and of itself, cannot help hydrate skin unless you are actually dehydrated. Those who stay hydrated cannot drink copious amounts to help improve skin’s texture or radiance. Skin is actually the last part of the body that water reaches, as it flows to all the other organs first. However, drinking ample amounts of water does help rid the body and skin of toxins.

Moisturization is a necessary partner for hydration, because it involves adding ingredients into the skin to help prevent water loss. When moisture is retained by the skin, it enables skin’s natural ability to renew and repair to occur, improving texture and overall skin health.

Retaining the moisture in the skin is a complex science, but dermatologists generally agree that hyaluronic acid, glycerine, urea, ceramides and antioxidant vitamins A, C and E are among the most beneficial ingredients to add into creams and serums. These ingredients come in many variations and may be known by other “INCI”(International Nomenclature Cosmetic Ingredient) names; for example, tocopherol, sodium hyaluronate, ascorbic acid, lipids from oils and seaweeds and so forth.

The TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare range takes moisturization to a high level with its emphasis on sustainably farmed seaweeds that contain naturally-occurring antioxidants, beneficial acids, salts and oils. You can feel secure knowing that all TRUE elements® skincare products are COSMOS Organic certified by EcoCert, pH balanced and naturally fragranced. The range does not contain parabens, phenoxyethanol, PEGs, phthalates, EDTA, GMO ingredients or synthetic colouring.

Combining hydration, by drinking enough PiMag® water, and moisturization, by using TRUE elements® Marine Organic skincare, is a bona fide way to maintain high energy levels and vibrant-looking skin.

Groundwater: Making the Invisible Visible…

World Water Day is celebrated globally once a year to consciously recognize the importance of providing affordable, lasting access to safe water. It became a United Nations observance day in 1993 to focus attention on the global water crisis. Now World Water Day takes place on the 22nd March every year.

The theme for World Water Day 2022 is “Groundwater: Making the Invisible Visible.” World Water Day draws attention to water scarcity globally and every year, the theme is based on an important aspect of water. Groundwater is important around the world because it is the most abundant source of freshwater on earth.1 It is water that is located beneath the earth’s surface in the pores and crevices of rocks and soil. These layers of soil, sand, rock and gravel that contain usable quantities of groundwater are called aquifers.

Groundwater is invisible, but its impact is visible everywhere. Out of sight, under our feet, groundwater is a hidden treasure that enriches our lives. In the driest parts of the world, it may be the only water people have. Almost all of the freshwater in the world is groundwater, supporting drinking water supplies, sanitation systems, farming, industry and ecosystems. In many places, human activities over-use and pollute groundwater. In other places, we simply do not know how much water is down there, which means we could be failing to harness a potentially vital water resource.2

Accounting for about 97% of non-frozen fresh water on earth, groundwater is an important natural resource that contributes to human development. Approximately 50% of the world’s population drinks ground water daily, and it is critical for sustaining rural populations that are located away from surface water and infrastructure with manmade plumbing.3

Groundwater is a vital resource that provides almost half of all drinking water worldwide, about 40% of water for irrigated agriculture and about one third of water required for industry. Despite these impressive facts and figures, invisible groundwater is out of sight and out of mind for most people. Human activities, including population and economic growth, as well as climate variability, are rapidly increasing the pressure on groundwater resources. Serious depletion and pollution problems are reported for many parts of the world.4

The assessment of global groundwater resources is one of the core activities of The International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre. (IGRAC) is a United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) center that works under the auspices of World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and is supported by the Government of The Netherlands. IGRAC facilitates and promotes global sharing of information and knowledge. about groundwater.

Exploring, protecting and sustainably using groundwater will be central to surviving and adapting to climate change and meeting the needs of a growing population. The 2022 World Water Day spotlights groundwater as an invisible yet valuable resource, and strives to enhance knowledge exchange and collaboration to increase awareness of the importance of taking care of our groundwater.

Water is Life and Nikken is doing its part to help people access clean water for Active Wellness – not only for drinking, but also for bathing. From the 17th March, we are focusing on celebrating World Water Day by offering you state-of-the-art PiMag® products at great prices!

Health Trends for 2022…

It’s no surprise that staying as healthy as possible will continue to be top priority this year. That priority has been the premise for each Nikken product in every category, whether it’s nutrition, magnetic support or PiMag® water, since the company began more than 46 years ago. 

What are some of the health areas that people are focusing on in the year 2022? 

  • According to the international health insurance company BUPA, Google searches for “gut health” are up by 83% and they predict more people will focus on it in 2022.One of the Nikken organic nutritional supplements that addresses this is Kenzen Lactoferrin 2.0®, containing prebiotics and/or probiotics that enhance gut health. 
  • Some health experts predict that people will pay closer attention to their mental health in 2022. Mental health affects how the brain functions, and is also a by-product of our individual ways of responding to stress. Relaxing strategies such as spending more time in green spaces or practicing self-care to reduce stress will continue to be a priority in 2022.
  • Plant-based-eating articles and meal plans were up 31% in 2021 and it is expected to grow even more as more people choose to eat healthier and more sustainably.4
  • Perennial (as opposed to annual) grains like kernza (a new type of wheat) will explode. That is a good thing when it comes to fighting climate change, because perennial grains develop deeper root systems than annuals, and these deep roots help prevent soil erosion and trap harmful greenhouse gases underground, keeping them out of the atmosphere.5
  • Kelp and seaweed will make their way into all kinds of products, not just food. Although common to many cultures, farming kelp has been found to pull carbon out of the atmosphere.Known as a great source of minerals, such as potassium, iron, calcium, and magnesium, seaweed is also rich in antioxidants and vitamins. A great example of using seaweed not just as food is the improved line of TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skin Care. A variety of seaweeds are ingredients in these advanced formulations.
  • A “new school” of vitamins and supplements will evolve in 2022. Known as “smart” and “forward-thinking” supplements, they not only effectively address nutritional sufficiency but also nurture specific areas of health, from our cells to the whole body. The advancements range from delivery format and options that consider our personalized genetic makeup to strategic ingredient combinations, environmental sustainability, and more.7 Nikken began using this smart, forward-thinking approach in formulating nutritional supplements years ago. One example is the Kenzen® BDZ® for optimal calcium absorption.
  • The “green generation” of healthcare is growing. Green health professionals blend healthcare with an understanding of the environmental changes that affect people’s health in different parts of the world. They provide healthcare while advocating for the environment.3 Everyone understands the need for clean water for optimal health and Nikken provides the PiMag Waterfall® and PiMag® Water Bottle that help us decrease our carbon footprint by minimizing plastic waste. Replacing filters in a timely way prolongs the lifespan of your Nikken PiMag® water product!

Why We Wear Jewellery…

Jewellery was an early form of decorative art. The study of some primitive cultures shows that organic materials were used in the past. It was not until a later stage of human development that people chose precious and possibly scarce materials from far away to create jewelry.1

In many cases, jewellery was used as personal adornment, and also to convey the wearer’s social roles. Jewellery was also used to ward off disease and other evils, and sometimes even to work “magic” against opponents. In religious rituals, jewellery enhanced acts and signs of prayer and devotion to divinities.2

Jewellery that was made out of precious materials surfaced 5,000 years ago. In Mesopotamia, jewellery was fashioned from metals designed as leaves, spirals, and bunches of grapes and inlaid with brightly coloured stones. The Ancient Chinese had high regard for jade and silver. Brooches made of precious metals were used in Ancient Greece and Rome to clasp clothes together. Mayan jewellery was generally made from jade, gold, bronze, silver, and copper. Gold was highly coveted in Ancient Egypt such as was displayed in artifacts from King Tut’s tomb. These ancient cultures considered jewellery as a status symbol and only the affluent wore it. In the Middle Ages, royalty and nobility wore jewellery made from gold, silver, and precious gems, while those from the lower classes wore ornaments made from base metals like copper and pewter.3

As times and traditions changed, the mindset about jewellery has also transformed. It has become a mode of self-expression and creativity that’s not limited to costly metals and stones. Jewellery can now also be made from textiles, leather, plastic, glass, or crystal. Fashionable and luxury jewellery is worn by people from all walks of life. These days, people wear jewellery to reflect their mood, style, and individuality.

Kenko Jewellery is the Nikken line, and whether it’s a pair of earrings, a necklace or a bracelet, each piece incorporates magnetic technology, comfort and style. Kenko means health or healthy in Japanese, and as with every Nikken product, our jewellery is made with the purpose of enhancing the Active Wellness lifestyle. Through the end of the year, discover the special festive season jewellery, ideal for gifting, in addition to our regular year-round items. 

Check out the Festive Season Gift Guide and get them while they last!

Introducing KENZEN TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare…

Good for You and Sustainable for Nature

Sometimes it’s possible to make a good thing better. That’s what we’ve done with the KENZEN TRUE elements® skin care product range. Not only have we upgraded the already advanced formulas, but we have also added a higher level of organic certification and changed our packaging to be more eco-friendly.

Why KENZEN… We’ve added ‘KENZEN’ to the brand – Kenzen means “healthy” in Japanese – we are tying together our nutritional products with our skin care ones. In fact, you’ll notice the new KENZEN TRUE elements® contains an even higher level of natural and organic ingredients – making it a great nutritional addition for your skin.  

Organic Certification… TRUE elements® was always certified organic by EcoCert®, but now we’ve added COSMOS ORGANIC to our certifications. Adding this gold standard in international certification, COSMOS Organic means the KENZEN TRUE elements® range must comply with even more stringent guidelines. Complying with COSMOS Organic certification ensures responsible usage of natural resources and responsibility towards biodiversity and eco-friendly production with high-quality natural and organic ingredients via processes that respect people and the environment.

We take our commitment to the environment and to natural organic skin care seriously.  

Our KENZEN TRUE elements® formulations are formulated along the same ingredient guidelines as our nutritionals. That means no GMOS, pesticides, parabens, polyethylene glycol (PEG), silicone, dyes, aroma, controversial ingredients, gluten, alcohol or aluminum salts. 

Because we respect the ocean and its’ precious inhabitants, the seaweeds used in KENZEN TRUE elements® are harvested by hand and by boat from the Iroise Sea in Brittany – France, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Just as it’s important to fish sustainably, it’s equally crucial to harvest seaweed and other marine plants respectfully. Harvesting by hand and boat helps to preserve resources and maintain a low carbon footprint. Another step towards our mission to be ‘in harmony with nature’ and sharing Active Wellness with the Global Wellness Community.

The products… The first products relaunched are the Moisturizing Face Cream (# 2044) and the Youth Activ Serum (# 2042) with the addition of the brand NEW Revitalizing Face Serum (# 2062). 

The two serums are formulated to complement the Moisturizing Face Cream. To be applied on a clean face before applying the Moisturizing Face Cream, the Youth Activ Serum targets anti-aging and dark pigmentation spots. The Revitalizing Serum is formulated to energize dull, tired-looking skin with marine minerals. Both serums help decrease the appearance of fine lines and boost the hydration of the Moisturizing Face Cream. Depending on the needs of your skin, you can choose which serum best suits you; however, you can also use one in the morning and the other at night. 

Key Ingredients… The key ingredients in these advanced formulas include three different types of seaweed extracts: Organic Chondrus, Organic Laminaria, Organic Ulva Lactuca and sea plant: Organic Sea Fennel. Along with High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, Organic Shea Butter and Marine Magnesium Concentrate. 

Nikken is committed to working in tandem with nature and Planet Earth, so the KENZEN TRUE elements® products are Good for You and Sustainable for Nature.

Healthy Feet and Active Wellness…

Do you ever think about how important your feet are for your health? Good foot health is essential for an active life especially now Spring is here bringing better weather and more outside activities.

Feet may seem quite small compared to the rest of our bodies, but they account for more than a quarter of all the bones in the entire body. With 26 bones and 33 joints, our feet provide us with a solid foundation of balance, posture and support. They also have connections to our limbs, our heart and other vital organs. Because of these connections, they are pretty accurate indicators of our overall health and wellbeing. So paying attention to your feet and making sure they’re always pain free and healthy, means you are also helping to ensure the rest of your body is as healthy as possible too. 

The importance of feet also serves as the foundation for reflexology – which studies how one part of the body relates to another. Practitioners of reflexology rely on a “map” of the foot, where each part of our feet corresponds to another body part, notably the internal organs. Pressure applied to different parts of the foot is believed to stimulate or activate corresponding parts of the body.1

Stretching the feet, ankles and lower legs every day and before exercising helps keep the muscles strong and avoid injury. Two of the Nikken flagship products are the insoles. Nikken’s founder Isamu Masuda developed the magnetic insoles to simulate the therapeutic pebbles in the Japanese public hot baths. The Kenko mStrides® and Kenko mSteps® can both be cut to size to fit right into your shoes. The magnetic nodules massage the soles of the feet and act similarly to the acupressure practiced as part of reflexology. People who work while standing find Kenko insoles particularly helpful in keeping their feet energized and stable.

We know that keeping a healthy weight is beneficial for the whole body but in particular for our feet. Excess weight puts pressure on the feet, leading to foot pain, stress fractures and other health issues.  

Clean, dry and moisturised feet… Healthy feet start with good hygiene. Thoroughly clean and scrub your feet with soap and water when you bathe. Afterward make sure you dry them well. Fungal organisms love moisture, so depriving them of any wetness will make it more difficult for them to thrive. Nikken’s TRUE elements® Hand & Foot Cream helps soothe dry hands and feet with Shea butter – known to nourish skin whilst the seaweed extract Chondrus, has moisturising properties.

Feet and ankle support… It’s important to make sure that shoes fit properly and are in good condition. Some of us have a favorite pair that are especially comfortable; however, if they are worn out inside or outside, they can cause foot strain. Along with the feet, the ankles need protecting too. The Nikken KenkoTherm® Ankle Wrap is great for use during exercise or just daily activities providing comfort and support. Another great support is the KenkoTherm Duk® Tape.  Flexible enough to be applied to most joint areas Duk Tape helps support joints and comfort stressed muscles with its Far Infrared and Negative Ion technologies.

This spring, let’s keep out feet healthy and moving towards Active Wellness…

What’s on your bathroom shelf?

When it comes to what products we keep in our bathrooms, a lot has changed. If someone asked “What organic products do you have in the house?”, you might have said “fruit and veg”. But over the years, organic products have made their way from the kitchen, into other rooms of the house such as the bathroom. 

What does Organic mean?

Well, the products have been produced in a way that limits the use of synthetic materials or avoids them altogether. Organic products also promote balance in nature and conserve biodiversity. For example, restricted or no use at all of pesticides, antibiotics and growth hormones.

Why buy Organic?

The production process is less damaging to the environment and as a Global Wellness Community, we all like to do our bit and support it. Beside this, the products are more likely to contain better quality ingredients, which means they can work better too. 

What to look for?

Look out for products that are Organic Certified.  This means that the item has been through a rigorous application process in which the efficacy of its organic status has been tested at all points in its manufacture, effectively from the soil up. ECOCERT1 for example, is a European organic certification organisation based in France which besides food products, also certifies cosmetics, detergents, perfumes and textiles. The company inspects about 70% of the organic food industry in France and about 30% worldwide. ECOCERT is also a leading certifier of fair-trade food, cosmetics and textiles as per ECOCERT Fair Trade standards.

Try organic in your bathroom…

You’ll make a great impact not only on the environment but also on your skin by switching to organic. When you choose Nikken’s TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare range, you are choosing products with certified natural ingredients without the added chemicals or synthetic fragrances that may upset the skin’s delicate natural balance. 

This product range represents a synergistic blend of organic seaweeds and coastline plants sustainably harvested from the Brittany coastline of France, making its ingredients formulas completely unique. And of course, it has been certified Organic by ECOCERT. The TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare range is suitable for all skin types including sensitive due to its gentle marine organic ingredients.2

To celebrate International Women’s Day on the 8th of March 2021, we are offering savings of 50% on selected TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare*!

The Best Winter Skincare…

The colder, winter season is fast approaching; which is when our skin needs some extra tender loving care. As temperatures drop, so do the moisture levels in our skin, which can cause our skin to become dry and dehydrated, losing its natural, healthy-looking glow. 

There are just so many factors that can contribute to changes in our skin during the winter. Our skin is also less exposed to sunlight, which means less opportunity for our body to make vitamin D.  

So, we can see just how important it is to take extra care of our skin at this time. Here are our best winter skincare tips and routines to help you look after your precious skin:

– stay hydrated… when skin loses moisture and becomes dehydrated it means it’s lacking the water levels needed to function effectively. Make sure you keep hydrated from the inside, which means drinking plenty of water every day.

– exercise… it might be difficult to leave the warmth of the blanket behind and get your body moving on a cold morning. But if you love your skin, do it! Exercise will pump up your heart rate, which in turn, pumps more blood and oxygen to your skin, keeping it looking healthy and glowing naturally.

– adjust your skincare routine… skin tends to produce fewer oils in the winter months, so include a heavier face and body moisturiser or include a moisture boosting hydrating face serum. Use gentle, natural skincare formulas that work with your skin’s natural barriers. 

– get back tobasics… keep skin in optimum condition by cleansing thoroughly twice a day; once in the morning and once in the evening to remove make-up and airborne dirt particles. TRUE elements® Velvet Cleansing Milk, is made from organic seaweeds that work in synergy with skins natural barriers. TRUE elements® Fresh Tonic Lotion clears away any last traces of cleanser, whilst Aloe Vera helps keep skin feeling fresh and moisturised.

– give your skin a moisture boost… serums are packed with powerful ingredients that penetrate deeper than a moisturising cream and deliver more targeted results due to their smaller molecule size – serums are the unsung heroes of the skincare world! Nikken’s TRUE elements® Youth Activ Serum contains Hyaluronic Acid; well-known to help increase skins moisture levels by attracting and retaining moisture. Apply before your moisturiser. 

– don’t forget your hands and feet! Hands and feet get dry too so it’s important to cream them up in order to keep them baby softApply hand cream after washing your hands now more than ever. TRUE elements® Hand and Foot Cream contains seaweed extracts and Shea Butter to help keep skin well hydrated. Apply a layer of Hand and Foot Cream under socks before bed and wake up with super soft feet.

The TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare range is formulated using organic seaweeds harvested off the French Brittany Coast and are certified organic by ECOCERT1. Find out more about the range here…

The surprising benefits of taking a shower…

Shower Benefits Blog Banner

Whether you use your shower to kick-start your morning and get yourself feeling ready for the day ahead or to unwind in the evening, it can bring feelings of refreshment and relaxation.

Your daily shower can do more for your wellbeing than simply make you feel better. Different water temperatures are thought to bring us slightly different benefits too:

Benefits of hot showers –

– Can help reduce cold symptoms. A nice warm shower could help your cold, as the steam vapours help moisturise and decongest your nasal passages when inhaled.

– Good for muscles. A hot shower can be beneficial to your muscles after a tough long workout. It helps with your recovery as it relieves tension in stiff muscles.

 – Help to relieve aches and pains. The warmth of a hot shower stimulates circulation, loosening joints and tissues.

– Help cleanse your pores. Blocked pores are the leading cause of spots, particularly on the face. When you have a hot shower, these are opened up, giving you the chance to wipe away any blockages when you cleanse.

Benefits of cold showers –

– Cold showers can help improve facial complexion. Cold water helps to constrict blood vessels to temporarily tighten pores and reduce redness. According to the National Sleep Foundation1, washing your face before bed helps reduce breakouts improving your moisturiser’s efficiency and helps to prevent wrinkles. This may not be exclusive to showering but doing them together is much easier.

– May help to reduce stress levels. If you find yourself stressing about the overwhelming number of things you have to do that day, then taking a morning shower could be a great way to alleviate that feeling.

– Help improve circulation. One study has found that taking a cold shower after exercise may improve general hydration by cooling down the body. As blood travels away from the skin, blood vessels in deeper body tissues dilate. This improves circulation in the deeper tissues2.

Whichever temperature you choose to take your shower in, choose the right shower system for you. With Nikken’s PiMag® MicroJet Shower System (#1466) water passes through a filter – showering down clean, chlorine free PiMag® water to refresh and reenergise your whole body whilst helping to reduce water-born dirt, sediments and odours.

Vitamins and Minerals from the sea, to your skin…

v4 TE Blog Banner

Vitamins and minerals are considered essential nutrients. Working together, they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help maintain bones, heal wounds and bolster the immune system. They also convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage. Eating a healthy diet is the best way to get the vitamins and minerals you need, however applying them topically can also give your skin a boost too.

The skincare industry is constantly evolving, but one thing remains the same: we continue to make use of ingredients around us, more often using plants that our ancestors have turned to for centuries including marine plants and seaweed.

Seaweed naturally absorbs its nourishment from the sea. Just like plants that grow on land, seaweed is chock-full of natural nutrients. Vitamin C, potassium, iron, vitamin B12 (niacin) and choline are only a few of the star players found in seaweed. It’s also known to aid in the natural cleansing and purifying of the skin, helping to improve suppleness and elasticity. With the abundance of vitamins and minerals, the benefits of using seaweed in skincare products are vast.

Nikken’s TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare range includes seaweed, marine plants and seawater, making the products rich in natural minerals that are easily absorbed by the skin.
At the heart of the TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare range is organic algae Chondrus Crispus, Crithmum Maritimum, Ulva Lactuca and Laminaria Digitata. All of which help maintain the skin’s natural moisture level promoting natural regeneration, improving hydration and promoting a healthy glow.

TE HeartCertified ORGANIC
Natural and genuine, respectful of the environment, providing all the richness of algae and sea water to your skin with an eco-responsible and sustainable approach. The TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare range is certified organic by EcoCert.1
