With a total area of around 20 feet, skin is the largest organ in the human body. It does an incredible job of protecting the body’s interior from outside elements, and helps regulate body temperature.
In spite of all these vital functions, most people treat their skin very poorly, particularly when it comes to using personal care products: soap, shampoo, deodorant, moisturizer, and cleanser. Mass marketing has tricked people into assuming harsh chemicals are the solution, but more research and a movement to organic products
Mass marketing has tricked people into assuming harsh chemicals are the solution, but more research and a movement to organic products has given rise to Keeva Organics, a 100% organic solution to skin and hair health – primarily anti-acne treatment.

The Dangers of Toxic Skin Care
Unless it states on the label of a personal care product, “cruelty-free” or made from organic ingredients, then it is not. Chances are one or more of the ingredients have been tested on animals, and one or more of them are, in some way, harmful to humans. A glance at the list of ingredients will be shocking and disconcerting:
- Sulfates: used as foaming agents, these chemicals can cause damage to kidneys, lungs and airways.
- Phthalates: used to prevent lotions from solidifying, these chemicals can cause a high risk for breast cancer and birth defects in men and women.
- Parabens: used to prevent mold and bacterial growth, these chemicals may increase the risk of breast cancer.
- Formaldehyde: used as a preservative, this chemical can cause skin reactions and some types of cancer.
- Propylene glycol: used to bind other ingredients, this chemical may cause a wide range of skin conditions including dermatitis and hives.
- Fragrances: a single fragrance blend may contain more than a hundred different chemicals. These concoctions may cause respiratory problems, skin reactions and reproductive damage.
- Artificial coloring: because they are derived from petroleum they may contain cancer causing agents.
There are alternatives to these dangerous products in the form of essential oils; products made from natural, affordable, organic ingredients such as tree tree oil and argan, the two biggest staples in the Keeva collection.

Acne is a National Problem
Affecting around 50 million Americans every year, acne is the most common skin condition throughout the Nation. There are three different types of acne: pimples, which develop on the surface of the skin, blackheads and whiteheads, which develop on or just below the skin’s surface.
People desperately spend millions of dollars on over-the-counter acne medications, but what many of them don’t realize is these products contain harmful chemicals, which attempt to recreate nature’s remedies. One of the chemicals is resorcinol, commonly used in acne medication, and hair dyes.
According to the World Health Organization, when tested on animals, resorcinol caused disruption of the central nervous system, thyroid dysfunction, and adrenal gland dysfunction. Resorcinol may also cause sensitization, meaning the skin becomes increasingly sensitive to it the more it is used, revealing why many artificial creams and lotions work at first, but sinisterly become an attack to one’s skin, not a solution.

The New Face of Anti-Aging
As the body matures, skin gradually undergoes a number of age-related changes. These changes, though subtle at first, become the body’s most visible signs of aging. The skin’s connective tissue loses some of its original elasticity and the skin becomes thinner, showing lines and wrinkles.
Aging gracefully can be accomplished through daily exercise, eating habits, and utilizing what nature has already given us – natural remedies and antioxidants. Keeva’s answer to retaining a youthful look is simple and once again, natural; an anti-aging, anti-wrinkle night cream infused with lavender.

The Benefits of Lavender
Lavender is a perennial herb native to Mediterranean countries but is cultivated throughout Europe and North America. Its medicinal use dates back to ancient Egypt, where it was used in the mummification process. In Rome, Persia and Greece it was used for bathing.
It was also used in ancient times for its tonic and antiseptic properties. These days, leaves and oil from the lavender plant are used to treat many ailments including headaches, depression, insomnia, anxiety and digestive disorders. The essential oil also has numerous uses in aromatherapy.
For skin, lavender has a number of beneficial properties. Not only can the essential oil help to treat and reduce the risk of acne, it can help to reduce the appearance of blemishes and age spots; it also deeply hydrates the skin, lowering the appearance of wrinkles.
