Regimes to maximise skin and hair health
- Soften 1-2 tsp (depending on the length of your hair) of solid oil in the palm of your hands by rubbing them together.
- Massage oil through your hair evenly while gently rubbing the scalp to stimulate blood circulation.
- Leave on hair for 30-60 minutes or overnight for a very deep conditioning treatment.
- Rise thoroughly in the shower with warm water and then wash as normal.
- Wash hair with extra Replenishing Shampoo (as described in tip number one) and then condition with Extra Replenishing Conditioner, leave conditioner in for several minutes for duration of shower of bath for maximum effect.
- For an even more intense conditioning treatment apply conditioner and leave on hair for 15 - 30 minutes before rinsing off.
- Finish with Vision Hair shaper- both of our vision hair finishing products (Styler and Shaper) also act as excellent leave in conditioners-containing a host of natural hair nutrients. Vision Hair Shaper is especially formulated and textured with extra richness for hair softness and health. Notice your hair softness particularly the next time you shower.
4. How to use Vision Olive Oil cleanser
Again this is natural cleanser which will not lather like commercial products do, you will experience a super fine texture ideal for gentle cleansing on a daily basis. As the cleanser is solid you will need to apply wet finger tips or sponge 2-3 times to get a flow happening. You do not need much to cleanse the face, a little will go a long way due to its silkiness. Gently rub in circular motions avoiding direct contact with the eyes. This is not a heavy duty make up remover, it's more of an every day cleanser ideal for re-balancing the skin after a harsher cleanser has been used. Excellent on all skin types. Ideal for both men and women.
5. How to perform an especially sublime night skin treatment
For a sublime skin care treatment before bed that will enliven and replenish the skin by using a combination of the Vision Products in the following way.
- Gently wash face with Vision Pure Olive Oil cleanser to remove excess sebum and the dirt from the day.
- Exfoliate with Vision Face and Body Exfoliant to take away old skin cells, rinse with warm water and pat dry.
- Apply Vision Eye Gel patting around the eye area, and then apply the Vision Citrus Lotion elsewhere around the face and neck area to begin the nourishment of new cells.
- Wait 2-3 minutes for the skin to breathe and absorb the ingredients of these products.
- Finish by applying Vision Face Super Food to face and neck as an extra layer of nutrients for skin nourishment to work through the night.
You may notice the strong nutty scent of the Youth Serum. This is normal, and comes from the Tamanu Oil in this product. This particular oil also gives the Serum its brown colour. Some people like the scent and others find it a little over powering. Either way, use it sparingly as a little goes a long way and if you apply the Serum on top of the Citrus Lotion the citrus scent of the lotion mellows the nutty intensity of the Tamanu oil a little. We use the Tamanu oil as it is reputed to support natural healing, and may help to reduce inflammation (eczema and psoriasis) and the visibility of scars.
Visionaire Actions: reuse, refill, recycle, re-purpose, bio-degrade
As a Visionaire use these handy hints to look after our planet. Share with us your Visionaire Actions and think of creative ways to 're-purpose' and be potentially rewarded through our Visionaire rewards program.
1. How to use our pumps for the first time: 150ml glass bottle and 750ml PLA bottle
- Gently push down on the pump and turn it anti clockwise to release pump from the ‘off’ position.
- If tightly wound down you may have to hold (with the opposite hand) the small white circular component close to the neck to stop this from rotating for the pump to release.
- Pump the pump several times to allow product to ‘rise’ up the tubing inside the container.
- Clean the pump each time you refill the bottle.
- Wash in a sink of warm water using a little of the Vision hand wash as a natural cleansing agent.
- Remove tubing, wash and then rinse under tap.
- Remove any dried residue from around the tip of the pump dispenser.
- Rinse well, then dry tubing and dispenser.
- Reassemble the pump and twist securely to the bottle top.
- Pump several times to enable contents of bottle to ‘rise’ up the tubing.
3. How to refill 200ml and 50ml tottles from 750ml PLA bottle.
- Unscrew the lid and remove the stopper or 'nib' from the 200ml or 50ml plastic tottle.
- Place the pump end of a 750ml bottle into the neck of the tottle and press down on the pump. The product will flow into the tottle as you continue to pump.
- When tottle is full, replace the stopper/ nib and screw on the tottle lid.
- Immerse 150ml glass bottle or 750ml PLA bottle in very warm, but not hot, water (gradually warm glass bottle first under the tap to avoid breakage).
- Wait several minutes for a little melting to occur for use. To melt the full contents of the 750ml bottle you may have to leave for 15 minutes depending on temperature and repeat with freshly warmed water if need be. This will not damage the oil in any way, however very hot or recently boiled water will buckle the 750ml bottle making it non-reusable.
- All glass jars and bottles can be either reused or re-purposed prior to recycling through normal kerb side recycling collection. Re-purpose our glass jars washing off the label and use for dried herbs, seeds, nuts, powders, vitamins, buttons, etc, be creative and re-purpose. Re-purpose our 150ml bottles by washing well before using them for tonics, a small vase, home made dressings, etc. As a extra incentive return 10 x 150ml bottles to us for a free product, we will wash, sterilize and reuse. Bottles must be prior washed and in good condition free of chips. As a Visionaire show us other ways to re-purpose these jars and bottles.
750ml PP bottles - return for re-use, commercially compost
- The larger 750ml PLA bottles can be commercially composted where and when facilities are/become available. Alternatively disposed of in normal rubbish collection if the first options are not available. As a Visionaire incentive, return 10 to us for a free product, we will wash, sterilize and reuse. Bottles must be prior washed and in good condition free of deformity or damage.
PP plastic tottles - refill before recycling
- At the end of life (multiple refills) the PP plastic 50ml and 200ml tottles can be recycled through the normal kerb side recycling collection. These tottles are fit for purpose meaning they should last years before needing to be recycled.
Labels and packaging - composting and recycling
- All paper labels and cardboard packaging are printed with vegetables inks, plus our filler from potato starch, can be suitable for home composting or recycling through normal paper collection methods. Use compost for non- food crops if wanting organic food standards.
- All stick on labels (excluding our PP tottles) are made from wood cellulose or corn and are designed for both home (non - food) and commercial composting.
Apparel - re-using, re-purposing, composting
- Our 70% Bamboo and 30% organic cotton apparel, if in reasonable condition, can be re-used by being gifted through clothing bins. If in fully worn condition this fabric can be re-purposed into effective cleaning cloths. Home compost at the end of the fabrics durability. Alternatively as a Visionaire show us other ways to re-purpose this material.
