MIT and the Implications on Our Products

Due to a change in EU regulations, all companies with leave on products containing Methylisothiazolinone (MIT) are required to reformulate to eliminate this ingredient.

While we will be facing some stock outages of some of these products temporarily, our teams were able to move quickly with short notice to reformulate these products and minimize the inconvenience to our customers.

Stock Availability

Products such as Firming Day Lotion and Recovering Night Creme from the Fleur range and Gentleman’s Pride should be from later in February, The Redydrating Toner and the Fleur Kit from March and the Heat Lotion (my personal favourite) from April/May. The dates for  Aloe Sunscreen and the Sonya Aloe Deep Moisturizing Cream are still to be confirmed. These dates may change, so keep an eye out for updates.

Discontinued Products

Some products are to be discontinued to make room for new innovation.  Over almost 40 years, Forever has built a wide assortment of products. With so many exciting new developments and reformulations coming your way, Forever has decided to say goodbye to some of our classics in order to make room for new innovations later this year or next year. We will sell these products until stock lasts, but please note that products containing MIT will be unavailable with immediate effect.

These are the Aroma Spa Collection, the Relaxation Massage Lotion, Aloe Sunscreen Spray and the Aloe Body Toning Kit.

Clean 9 – Free Foods Updated

The Clean 9 (C9) from Forever Living is an expertly devised 9 day cleansing plan designed to kick start a healthier way of living.  The programme cleanses your body and helps to adjust your mindset, it is a perfect starting point for transforming your diet and fitness habits. You can read more information about the relaunched Forever F.I.T. programme, which the C9 forms the first part of , in my previous post New Forever F.I.T.

The C9 has benefited from the addition of Free Foods in the plan since it’s previous relaunch in 2014, and now the programme has been improved again with more guidance on Free Foods, what to eat and how often you can have them whilst sticking to the plan.

Fruits Veggies and Free Foods

Free foods are foods which are low in calories and provide vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients and fibre.  The newly designed booklet which comes with the C9 pack splits your free foods between one serving foods, two serving foods, and unlimited foods which are so low in calories that the serving size is not specified.

By reaching for these free foods if you feel peckish on the C9, or even if you just want that feeling of eating something on days 1 and 2 of the programme, you are more likely to succeed and stay on the wagon for the full 9 days.

Sticking to the Plan

The secret to a successful C9 is first proper preparation, which is covered in my post 5 ways to prepare for the Clean 9, keeping focused on your goals and reasons for following the programme,  and don’t beat yourself up if you eat food or have a slip up whilst on the C9, just pick yourself up, refocus, and follow the rest of the plan as best you can.  Proper preparation is the key.  If you have a supply of free foods prepared and ready to dip into during your lowest moments you are less likely to

Love your Summer Skin

It’s no secret that the earth would be a depressing place without the sun.  The sun brings life to our world and it also produces us with a source of vitamin D, as essential vitamin that plays a core role in human development.  Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of many fundamental functions, but this does not warrant an excuse irresponsibly expose your skin to the sun’s rays.

The Skin is our largest organ

The surface of the skin is covered by a coating known as the acid mantle.The acid mantle is made from perspiration and sebum (an oil), and it;s role is to protect the skin from any unwelcome damage.  The acid mantle also inhibits the growth of fungi which can reduce the risk of allergies and blemishes.

However, there are many factors that can impact the acid mantle, which in turn can alter the pH level of the skin’s surface (healthy skin should have a pH of 5.5). Since the skin is our largest organ, and one that protects all out other crucial components it is therefore vital that you show love and care towards your skin, particularly during the summer months.

Avoid Sun Damage

The UK may not be renowned for its sun-infused climate, but sun damage is still possible and something that should be approached seriously.  If you are planning a trip abroad this year, perhaps somewhere a little more tropical, it is crucial that you keep your skin protected; sun damage can cause premature ageing due to the effect UVA rays have on elastin fibers in the skin.  Too much sun exposure can lead to a loss of elasticity and this, ultimately, causes wrinkles.

Make sure you avoid the leather look by following some simple steps:

  • Wear a hat and sunglasses – these will protect the most sensitive areas of your face and neck where your skin tends to be more delicate.
  • Slap on the sunscreen – this will offer your skin the greatest protection.  Both of the Aloe sunscreens will leave skin silky smooth; they are water resistant and they can double up as an after sun lotion.  SPF 30 is also believed to protect the skin from 97% of all the incoming UVB rays – the rays that cause the skin to turn red – and this can make a significant difference to your skin.  Forever’s sunscreens also protect the skin from UVA rays, UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin that UVB, which means skin cells are more susceptible to being damaged.
