Skyn Food is the original Skyn & Ko skin care product that inspired the Skyn & Ko skin care range. It was initially developed in a kitchen by the founders Jo and Cara who sought to create a product that was natural enough to be used on Jo's young son & daughter who suffered with re-occurring skin allergies and juvenile eczema as well as Cara who had long-term re-occurring adult acne flare-ups. After many months of trial and error, an all natural organic formula was created – with no synthetic ingredients or preservatives – that was suitable for all skin types including problematic skin. The purpose of this product was not to cure the skin ailments, but to nourish this skin and provide all of the essential nutrients that the skin required, so that it could heel itself naturally, as mother nature intended.
From the creation of Skyn Food, Finger Food was born. On using the formula daily, both Jo and Cara noticed a change in the length and strength of their nails. Whereas Jo had thin and brittle nails and Cara, dry and split, after using Skyn Food daily on their face and necks and by applying it with the hands, both founders had long, strong, healthy nails. After much investigation and via an adjustment and increase in relevant ingredients, maximum strength was developed and Finger Food was launched.
SKYN & KO Finger Food is suitable for all skin types and contains only pure, natural organic food grade ingredients. Skin food is so natural that you can ingest it, however given that there are no artificial flavours, we would certainly not suggest nor recommend this!
Please be aware that Finger Food contains Tree Nut Oils, therefore it is NOT suitable for anyone suffering with nut allergies.
Owing to its all-natural active ingredients, Skyn Food has a limited shelf life of 12-months and should be stored in the refrigerator and used within 4-weeks of opening. The properties in the active ingredients reduce over time and factors such as light and heat speed up this process. It is for this reason that the majority of our products are sold in small darkened glass containers, developed to last 4-weeks and come packaged in a box that we recommend you keep for storage. We suggest storing your products at the back of the refrigerator furthest from the inside lighting device. Finger food is developed to give you a 2-3 week daily treatment course.
Finger Food should be applied liberally to clean, natural, varnish free nails and cuticles twice daily; preferably morning and night. Apply Finger food AFTER lightly buffing the nails. Allow the oil to fully soak into the nail before applying varnish. Do not apply varnish of a night time – keep the nails natural.
Finger Food has been developed to be a 2-week treatment course. Noticeable results are usually seen within 7-days of continual usage. We recommend taking a week or two break after completing the Finger Food course and recommencing as and when you feel your nails are in need of nourishment. For maintenance we recommend using Finger Food 2x daily every 3-4 days OR once a day on alternate days.
