DID YOU KNOW that all skin creams available in shops contain chemical additives which are absorbed through your skin and may harm your health?

Such chemicals include preservatives like parabens, artificial colours, fragrances, humectants, emulsifiers, stabilisers...

If you don’t fancy smearing yourself with potentially toxic, irritant or carcinogenic substances you have two options:

Either make your own skin products with raw materials of your choice, or have them made to order by north London herbalist, Elsa Hamaz.

Order any quantity of creams, ointments or lotions. These skin care products are handmade from organic, high quality herbal extracts and natural preservatives and fragrances.

The creams  may contain the following emulsifiers: vegetable emulsifying wax, bees wax, borax (natural mineral), shea butter and coco butter.

Essential oils, vitamin C, vitamin E or benzoin (a tree gum/resin) are used as natural preservatives. Other ingredients may include beeswax, infused or fixed oils, Cocoa butter, Sheabutter ....

From The Desk Of Michael Sellar BA Dip ION

Although I'm a nutritionist and not a herbalist, I just wanted to make a few remarks about Elsa's herbal skin range.

Firstly, you'll notice that there is no telephone order hotline you can ring. Nor can you pay for these creams online.

There's a reason for this.

Elsa is a health professional. She wants to make sure these products are right for you.

Obviously she prefers to meet clients for individual consultations where she can design a herbal programme for your personal requirements.

She is trained to identify the underlying causes of your ill health and design a safe and effective prescription tailored to your needs. (If you are interested in a personal consultation with north London herbalist Elsa Hamaz please visit
London Herbalist)

But if this is not possible, if you are unable to visit her, she'll still do the very best she can for you. So please don't hesitate to contact her by phone or email. She'd be delighted to hear from you.

Secondly, I must say a word about the price of these skin care products. To be frank I think Elsa is charging far too little.

Recently I was in Fenwicks in Brent Cross, north London. I saw a men's 50ml “moisturising miracle” which costs £120. I've even heard of creams priced at over a THOUSAND pounds! Skin care products are often sold at ridiculous prices which have nothing to do with either their quality or effectiveness.

Please don't imagine the low cost of Elsa's skin creams is a reflection of their quality. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The fact is that Elsa is not in the moneymaking business. She is not prepared to charge the kind of prices the cosmetic industry force you to pay. She is a health professional. Her only incentive is to help you to better health.

So do have a good look over Elsa's skin care products range and if you have any questions or want to place an order, please don't hesitate to give her a ring on 020 8533 0342 or 07939 610 283 or email
