What prompted you to create the INLIGHT range and why did a medical doctor decide to formulate and produce a line of skin care?
Having been trained in homeopathy and clinical phytotherapy as well as in medicine and surgery, I’ve been able to observe the functions of the human body from different angles. My observations have totally confirmed Dr Hering’s law (doctor & homeopath who introduced homeopathy into the USA in the 1800s) ‘‘The vital energy within the body works from the inside to the outside in order to clear inner toxicity”.
The skin, then, is the last layer and represents an important detox organ in a holistic medical approach. When in Italy I ran a detox center for many years and during that fascinating time I have seen how the skin participates in the detox action as it releases inner waste; the emunctory function. After all this you can understand how fascinating this large organ is for someone interested in the wellbeing of the whole person.
What can you define as a core feature of your formulations?
The power of INLIGHT lies most importantly in the synergy between the individual ingredients. Other key factors are my medical expertise and our carefully designed manual production, including our herbal oil, the base of all INLIGHT products, obtained by infusing the selected herbs in oils. The resultant herbal oil is extremely rich in beta carotene, antioxidants, pigments such as chlorophyll, as well as being packed full of vital energy. A special device I have designed myself gives the raw ingredients an extra energy spin too! It goes without saying that the final product is pure concentrated goodness.
Why the organic choice?
Organic is what nature intended in the first place. Being in touch with pain due to the nature of my work I have seen the strong connection between environment and health and so the impact of the choices we make. Organic food for both inside and outside our body is the answer for a better and healthier body and planet. After all our body is our planet too isn’t it? We can’t pollute the planet without taking into consideration that we are polluting our own lives. In fact anything we do to nature comes back to us sooner or later.
Why oils with no water?
Why would you dilute nature? We don’t use any water in our products because water can only dilute the other ingredients and immediately evaporate. In all worldwide ancient traditions, oils have been used to protect, moisten and nourish the skin, the reason being that oils are very similar to the skin sebum, one of the components of the skin’s hydrolipidic layer whose function is to protect the skin from the outside. Therefore oils are recognized both chemically and energetically by our body and interact positively with the other chemical compounds on our skin. The oils we choose – very rich in omega 3 & 6 – also have the ability to transport the beneficial ingredients of the herbs we use in our products and make them available for our skin.
