Deeper Than Skin Deep: The Next Generation in Advanced Biodynamic Skincare
by Kiki Athanas
September 17, 2018
For the most potent, concentrated, energized skincare you’ll ever experience - on not only a physical but also emotional and spiritual level, there’s one brand worth paying attention to (& paying the premium price tag for).
Some variation of: "My skin has never felt so hydrated," is by far the most common response to those who try AEOS energised organics - and once you discover the science & intention behind it, it’s really no wonder.
I sat down with the Marketing Manager, Sam Sargent, to get the full story on the line of products that are literally making light waves in the skincare world - and beyond.
So what makes this skincare brand so different? It’s the transformational experience of using products that go skin-deep...to those that tap into not only the subtle bodily energies and auras, but also infuse our body’s largest organ (the skin) with rich living energies. These “energies” I’m referring to are not the ‘woo woo’ kind you may be thinking - they are consciously extracted and enriched through the most progressive technologies known to science. From turning crystals into liquids, purifying water in a torroidal vortex, and extracting the oil from spelt - grown following biodynamic farming practices on their very own land. AEOS is your next level skincare system.
The 3 Skincare Upgrades You Won’t Find in Any Other Products
1. Crystal Tinctures
Nourish your skin with the power of crystals and let it penetrate deep into your body for emotional and spiritual wellbeing. AEOS products have a direct beneficial effect on the human energy field due to the inclusion of spagyric essences, which are literally liquid gems and crystals prepared using ancient alchemical techniques. These crystal vibrations allow for delivery of therapeutic effects for body, mind and soul alike.
I love how Sam mentioned that AEOS is unlike any other brand in that choosing which products to use isn’t based on the usual: normal, dry, or oily and combination skin type. Instead, AEOS empowers you to choose based on intuition - after all, as they say at Aura-Soma, “You are the colours you choose.”
Of course, your particular circumstances will shape which colours are of most benefit to you at that current period in your life.
For instance, feeling drawn to pink is a gentle reminder to make the time to look after yourself with kindness and caring, just as you care for your loved ones. On the other hand, to choose blue is to invite peace and calm within, to find acceptance and serenity with our circumstances, soothing away the effects of stress from the skin.
2. Purified & Enhanced Water
One of the main secrets behind why AEOS products are so hydrating is in the water used, drawn from a natural artesian ground source - thus avoiding the chance of any potential physical or energetic contaminants like in tap water. To further elevate the process, water is purified and bacteria eradicated by passing it through vortex pipes so it flows in spirals – just as it would in natural rivers.
To rid the water of any earth-derived metals that may be present, it’s filtered by a three-stage process, then released through special chambers, stabilized and imbued with the positive energy of crystals. Lastly, the water passes through vortex pipes again into a tank for electrostatic induction (ESI), causing vibrations in the water - helping to maximize the skin-hydrating powers of their formulas.
3. Biodynamic Spelt Oil
When I asked Malcolm Robinson, the farm manager at their very own Demeter-certified Shire Farm, how he explains biodynamic farming to ‘newbies’, he put it quite simply; “The whole farm is a living organism.” Biodynamic methods ensure maximum vitality of the soil, and therefore, maximum life-force and optimum qualities within each plant that ingredients are extracted from.
Their farm truly follows a “soil to soul” system in which the fullest potential of the plants and herbs can be reached.
One of the spotlight ingredients used in AEOS and grown in this living organism that is Shire Farm is spelt oil - harnessed using supercritical CO2 extraction methods to preserve its full properties.
What makes spelt oil so special?
Well, it’s a saviour for very dry, prematurely aging, environmentally-sensitized or eczema-prone skin. In fact, it’s actually how Sam first fell in love and was introduced to AEOS herself! She was recommended to try the spelt oil while at a beauty show, and - whilst skeptical at first - it was the first and only thing that worked to heal the dry patches on her body. Needless to say, Sam knew she had found something extraordinary.
Spelt oil is nature’s answer to regenerating the skin and giving it the moisture it craves - thanks to its extremely rich Vitamin E content, proteins and essential fatty acids.
The Two Golden Rules for Using AEOS Products
1. A Little Goes a Long Way
All you need is a pea-sized amount as the formulas are incredibly concentrated and potent, with no fillers. Sam described it perfectly: the products are SO energized and very active that more is not necessarily better...let their power transform you drop by drop.
2. Always Use on Damp Skin
Rather than flooding a drought - an analogy Sam jokingly used to describe when people make the mistake of applying AEOS products to dry skin - it's best to take a gently hydrating approach, enriching layer upon layer. It's as simple as splashing your face with a little water before starting the first step, and spritzing the skin with the Refreshing Hydrating Mist before applying the Realive Serum or Enriching Moisturizer.
Depending on your lifestyle and your most suited routine, you may choose to follow the Optimal Radiance or Time Saver Ritual.
Best way to dive into your highest level of skincare potential - physically, emotionally, spiritually - is through discovering the luminous hydrating results of organic and biodynamic beauty and the wellbeing powers of crystals for yourself. I suggest you begin with their Starter Kit, so that you can fall in love with the products and feel and see just how much it’s worth it.
