Akamai Essentials Kit Review

PRODUCT: 

Akamai Essentials Kit (https://www.akamaibasics.com)



OVERVIEW:

Akamai Essentials Kit Review  via  www.productreviewmom.com

The whole idea behind the Akamai Essentials Kit is to cleanse and nourish skin, hair, and teeth in the easiest, most natural way possible. These folks take simplicity to a whole new level, saying, “Reality is, the less you mess with your skin and hair, the healthier they will be.” So if you’re a busy mama with 6-day hair and popsicle down your front, this may just be the easy-eco solution you're desperate for.




Each item has been made to be dynamic and multi-purpose. If you’re looking to save the planet a little bit, while paring down your routine, this is the way to go.



The kit costs $33 and consists of three separate products: two 3-in-1 Bars, Mineral Toothpaste, and Skin Fuel oil.



The 3-in-1 Bars are designed to be used as shampoo, shaving soap, and general cleanser.



The Mineral Toothpaste is not only for cleansing, but re-mineralizing teeth to make them stronger (not just numbing sensitivity pain). The medicinal essentials oil content means you can also use it to calm inflamed cold sores and pimples.



The Skin Fuel oil can be used as a hair/beard conditioner, aftersun salve, aftershave, scalp treatment, and soothing serum.

VERDICT:

First off, I love their ethos: “Think medicine, not marketing.” These people are all about caring for people and planet – not pushing products. In fact, the whole idea is that you buy less and use less. How refreshing!



3-in-1 Bars: What an unexpected surprise! While it was strange to rub a bar of soap into my hair, it did make an awesome shampoo – something my crispy, problematic hair isn’t used to. It’s not very foamy, but cleans perfectly, without stripping hair or scalp of naturally protective oils.



I generally avoid soap since it disrupts the acid mantle (bacteria balance of skin) and acts like industrial waste removal agents, hijacking the top 6 layers of my skin—but this stuff is built for long-term relationships, with your overall and lasting wellbeing very much in mind.



As a skin care specialist, I would never recommend using soap on your face (as the packaging suggests you can), but elsewhere it was creamy and nourishing.



Mineral Toothpaste: This is the best natural toothpaste I’ve used. Hands down. Most natural brands end up leaving my gums sore and teeth sensitive, but this was truly tough stuff.



Due to a lack of sweeteners, its clay base, and mineral content, it’s not sweet at all. In fact, it’s salty and packed with a mix of essential oils, that tasted a bit like a Christmas party in my mouth. It’s not at all unpleasant, but I can see how it might put some off.



Akamai’s remineralizing formula actually reinforces the integrity of teeth and gums, remove toxins, and gently fight bacteria (preserving the natural micro-biome for self-regulation – very important!). I’ve had sensitive teeth for years, and this was just the ticket.





Skin Fuel Oil: I love oils for moisturizing, and Skin Fuel was a super good formula. Unlike most elemental oils, it sinks in quickly. Left my face feeling fresh and light; no greasy finish, shine, or under-makeup clumpy weirdness. My dry, acne prone skin remained totally calm and happy. It smells of rosemary, great for sensitive skin.



My partner used it as a post-shave salve, and it seemed to effectively stave off razor burn and ingrown hairs/spots.



And after all that awesome sauce, I get to say I saved the planet a little bit. Cared for the finches. Let the elk drink fresh water from woodland rivers. Enabled farmers to ply their trade without debilitating exposure to chemicals and pesticides. That’s a beautiful thing.



DISCLOSURE: 

These products were given to me to test, but my experience and opinions are genuine.

  1. I haven't heard of this kit before. However, I do love my essential oils so I may have to spoil myself with it.
