UPDATE - New Reward Added
Hi, I’m Kirsty Terry, a Functional Medicine Nutritionist and I specialise in digestive health. A few years ago, I founded Equilibrium Health with a simple idea: to help people achieve optimum health and vitality naturally, using the ancient arts of healing and a non-invasive, pain and drug-free approach.
WHAT IS MY WHY?
One of the biggest challenges I’ve noticed in my practice is, my clients are using a number of personal and skincare products that contain harmful or even toxic ingredients. Many of the products we buy to take care of our skin, end up doing far more harm than good. In my line of work, I see the effects of toxins from harsh environmental factors along with personal skincare products as contributing to many of the modern-day skin complaints. The effects are not only uncomfortable for my clients, they can also be unsightly, and affect confidence and self-esteem.
The role of the skin in protecting the body against the dangers of the outside world cannot be overemphasized. It is one of the most important organs in our bodies and therefore, it deserves ultimate care. Having luscious, beautiful and healthy skin is attractive and a sign of greater health, and something every single one of us should desire. However, due to many environmental factors that are toxic to our skin on a daily basis coupled with harmful ingredients in use in the cosmetics industry, this is weakening the immune system within our skin and the signs of this are showing externally.
I've had the privilege to have worked with some of the world's leading-edge researchers, scientists and manufacturer's and it was a dream come true when I was asked if I would like to customise my own range of products. My aim was to develop the perfect skincare solution that will not only provide the crucial nourishment the skin needs to thrive, but will also enhance its immune protection without any harmful side effects. Many months, courses, and tons of skincare products later, and I am so proud and excited to introduce; Armorvida Skincare.
Armorvida is an innovative and luxurious brand of skincare products that combine high-quality nutrition for the skin with a unique proprietary nano protein blend. My research on this blend has shown that it is designed to encourage an appropriate immune response in order to improve the appearance of minor skin blemishes, giving a smoother and healthier-looking skin.
The skin is usually the body's first line of defence against harmful invasions as it repels and destroys pathogens, using our own internal army of biological weapons such as the Langerhans cells, macrophages and other immune cells that are present in the epidermis. With the nanotechnology in Armorvida’s protein processes, these products are designed to nourish the immune cells so they can work to improve overall skin health and reduce aging at the cellular level.
"What you put ON your body is just as important as what you put IN your body"
Additionally, Armorvida’s products source the best ingredients we can find to ensure they are natural and chemical free.
Our products are:
- Paraben free
- Sulphate free
- Not tested on animals,
They cater to the needs of all skin types like silky smooth skin, dry skin, and so many others. Every product works like it is magically-infused with universal healing power of nature. They use the safest and nutritious ingredients to provide skin support and provide the full benefits to the skin by protecting the life within the skin. The unique essential fatty acids and glycoproteins encourage the removal of senescent cells in the layers of the skin by the targeted nutrition of the immune cells, ensuring the skin is left looking radiant and feeling softer and smoother.
Among the full range of products that I am planning to launch. There are two products, FRANK and ROSE which are important to start introducing to your daily skincare routine. Rose, is an anti-aging face cream and Frank is an intensive massage cream.
ROSE is an anti-aging formula using advanced plant stem cell technology and nano proteins for targeted nutrition of the underlying immune cells. With a gently corrective multi-action formula, this beautifully textured cream is allergen-free, paraben-free, GMO-free, vegan, nut-free and it has been never tested on animals. It also contains the widest range of fatty acids of ANY skin cream available today, these combine with the select nano proteins and amino acids to form the basis of essential building blocks for repair and renewal at a deep cellular level.
With other natural ingredients like; Apricot kernel oil, Aloe Vera juice, Organic oils of sunflower seed, olive, coconut, camelina, jojoba, and rosehip, Aloe Vera butter, Hibiscus flower extract, Papaya fruit extract - helps even out skin tone, Stem cell extracts of apple and Gotu Kola, Grapeseed extract, and Glycoprotein, and many more, you can rest assured that ROSE will keep your skin healthy, and you will never want to use a chemical-based beauty product again.
Intensive Massage Cream
FRANK is an intense frankincense cream which benefits from the well-documented healing properties of the sacred frankincense tree. We use the purest white frankincense, known as frankincense sacra (this was the type said to be gifted to baby Jesus) - it uplifts the spirit as well as the body. Naturally, Frankincense already has well documented healing benefits like the ability to strengthen skin, improve tone, elasticity, defence mechanisms against bacteria and blemishes, improve appearance during aging, reduce the appearance of scars and acne, and heals wounds faster. Frank is combined with Armorvida’s proprietary Nano protein blend and is four times the strength of the Rose formula to offer a full spectrum of mind, body and spirit rejuvenation as a massage cream with almost super natural qualities.
WHERE WE’RE AT
As it stands, I have already raised £500 each for product formulation, registration, stress testing, brand design, label design, and print. I have a small stock of 10 units of each product available. Raising enough funding from this campaign will help in the purchasing of the following:
- Bulk order for each product
- Product filling machine
- Labelling machine
In return for your financial support and as our own little way of saying 'Thank you', we’re willing to offer some amazing rewards to everyone that supports this project, either by sharing our campaign or donating any amount. Kindly check the rewards section on the right for more information. If none of the rewards seem to pique your interest personally, they would make excellent gifts for friends and family members.
Who wouldn't want to look younger with our ROSE, anti-aging skincare?
With Christmas approaching, who do you know who deserves 'Frank', containing Frankincense - gift of kings.
If this project is successful, not only will you be able to use our products to protect your health and have amazing skin, but we would also be able to work on the development of the other products planned within the range.

RISKS AND CHALLENGES
As of now the only major risk we are likely to face on this campaign is a delay in delivering the rewards for backers. Nevertheless, there is an amazing team of people at the local post office, who already do an amazing job on a daily basis supporting my existing business, and with the threat of local post office closures, it's a Win:Win, as an increase in business will help to secure our local post office services. I have their assurance they will make sure the rewards get to our contributors as soon as possible. I will keep you, our valued contributors, appraised of any and all updates, especially any delays that may occur.
