Supplement Vitamins I Currently Take

I used to be one of those people who thought vitamins were superfluous and just another thing to stress out about. It wasn’t until I experienced my own health crisis, and during my enrollment at a health coaching school, did I realize the importance of vitamins and how they would soon make an impact on my own personal health when I needed it most. Speaking from my own experiences and after much trial and error throughout my health journey, I found these products to be the constant in my self care routine.

Below are the supplement vitamins I take daily, along with a women’s multivitamin (which is not pictured). I make sure to take a multivitamin everyday, but I don’t take my supplement vitamins everyday. Below I’ll note which days I choose to take my vitamins, why I take them, and where I buy them! Before picking up any of these vitamins, its important to speak to your doctor especially if you are pregnant and nursing! Enjoy!..

The Story Behind Our Organic Tea Soap – Kana Kare Luxury Wellness

Kana Kare’s First Product

Kana Kare started off as a skincare line of non-toxic, affordable, effective organic face & body soap. My sister Riva and I knew that we wanted to create products that supported and showcased some of the beauty and health customs practiced in Asia. And the most practiced, at the top of our list, was the overall wellness drink: Tea.

Tea is the basis of wellness and cure in Asia. Have a cold or fever? Ginger and lemon tea. Feeling exhausted? Green tea. Feeling anxious? Lavender and chamomile tea. One of the first remedies for any sickness in most Asian households is a hot drink, and most commonly that would be some sort of tea mixture.

The Research

When I first started my journey into Kana Kare’s product research, I relied very heavily on the experiences and home remedies of generations of mothers in different households. I interviewed and sat with many women, asked them about their beauty and health secrets and I zoned in on the key ingredients used by most.

Not surprisingly, I found that most Asian women tend to focus intently on the food they consume to compliment their skin care routine for an overall desirable beauty effect on their physique and skin. Tea was number one. Out of the countless women I talked with, most were happy to share with me their cabinet of beauty drink mixtures and selected beauty tea.

White Tea to help with pigmentation, Black Tea to detox from acne, Chamomile Tea to reduce inflammtion, Rooibos Tea to sooth, Green Tea for antioxidants, and Yerba Maté to energize.

To add onto that, I found that many Asian women also consumed collagen drinks, depended greatly on topical Kojic Acid for whitening skin, Malunggay & Coconut Oil for soothing inflamed skin, and crushed seeds, dried fruit and oatmeal for exfoliation.

From Concept to Creation

I took these home beauty remedies back with me and started working on formulations and combinations, with my sister, for the most effective soap blends we could create. We knew right from the beginning that we wanted to create soap bars that are good for the face and body. We wanted our products to be functional, practical and powerful.

After trial and testing for over 6 months, we finally perfected 6 different variants of vegetable glycerin based – tea blended soap bars, each having it’s own specific beautification purpose. All of our soap bars are non toxic and FREE of Parabens, Synthetic Fragrance, and Tetrasodium. Safe for pregnant ladies and children!

I visited Beautizone the other day to get myself some natural looking eyelash extensions. I desperately need to save some time in the morning while we’re in the process of moving to a new home, relocating my nail spa and preparing a new product launch for Kana Kare… not to mention I have a toddler running around. The last thing I want on my mind is to worry about looking like a mess if I have to run out of the house last minute for a meeting…

About Kana Kare Wellness + Giveaway! (Closed)

Welcome to It’s Rene Rose! After launching Kana Kare Wellness, an organic skin care company my sister and I founded in 2016, I received many inquiries asking for a blog that would be devoted to health, beauty and wellness. And because this is a personal blog, I’ve decided to throw in some lifestyle, travel and motherhood topics as per requests! Thank you to everyone who personally messaged me or voted in my Instagram polls regarding the topics you would like to read about!

I wanted to kick off the blog’s launch with a Kana Kare Giveaway and give just a little background about the brand and our mission.

Kana Kare was founded on the need to find a skin care brand that was not only clean, organic, affordable and effective, but also had a powerful ‘Local’ message behind it. All products are handmade in the Philippines, in small batches, mainly using local ingredients sourced from Filipino farmers and others all around Asia. Our products contain many amazing ingredients like organic lavender oil, peppermint oil, mandarin oil, rose hip oil, vitamin E, C and more, but we pride ourselves on our two most precious, and Kana Kare’s key ingredients: Moringa ‘Malunggay’ oil and Virgin Coconut oil.

Kana Kare’s vision is to showcase the beautiful and beneficial qualities of Asian ingredients in skin care products to the rest of the world. All while staying true to our mission of being a clean, non toxic and safe brand for all to use, including pregnant and lactating ladies. We gather our research from generations of Asian women who share with us their trade beauty and nutrition secrets, while applying them to our formulations to perfect our products.

With my sister, a scientist, working on our formulations and product development and myself, a Nutrition & Wellness coach, working to make sure all ingredients are 100% natural and chemical free, we are placing all of our love and knowledge into creating better products for our local farmers and your skin. All products are tested on our family and friends, including ourselves, for 12-24 months before reaching the market, and we do absolutely NO ANIMAL TESTING!
