Make it as simple as possible but no simpler — Albert Einstein
In the spirit of supporting close friends realize their dreams, I wanted to share once again some information on Akamai Basics, a line of personal care products which I helped design and art direct.
After 2 years in development, Akamai is the Boulder, Colorado based brainchild of, Vincent Cobb and his family. I would ask that you please consider reviewing the website to see if the ideas and mission behind Akamai resonate with your lifestyles and wellness goals. Akamai (a Hawaiian word meaning wise or intelligent) believes clean and healthy skin, hair and teeth can be achieved with far few products, chemicals and complexity. They’ve taken a radically simplified, back to basics, truly natural approach.
Akamai is Personal Care, Radically Simplified.
We make 100% natural, multipurpose, nutrient rich personal care essentials and deliver them to your door every 2 months. We believe clean and healthy teeth, skin and hair can be achieved with a back to basics, truly natural, healthy approach that is reasonably priced. Their approach is rooted in 10 principles:
Use the transdermal affect to improve health.
Avoid synthetic chemicals. Sometimes even naturally derived ones can be harmful.
Design highly effective products that are multipurpose. Not as a tricky marketing move, rather as a sensible, practical thing to do.
Support our body's ecologies and skin/oral microbiomes. No overuse of anything (including essential oils). Leverage and support our body’s abilities to regulate and heal itself.
Only use time tested, nourishing ingredients made by nature. Ideally in its whole form.
Use the fewest number of ingredients possible. While still being highly effective.
Every ingredient has a real purpose and impact. No hype, no fillers.
Offer fewer products. Versus an array of single purpose and nonessential.
Question authority, marketing and current advice. Use the wisdom of the past and get back to basics. Read labels, question ingredients. Use common sense and trust your gut.
Simplify protocols and routines.
Thank you very much for reviewing and sharing with your friends and family who may feel this line of products resinates with their lifestyle.
