Today’s way of life presents many challenges for the skin, which serve to accelerate the ageing process. All women will experience skin ageing – it’s normal. As part of this natural process, the skin loses the ability to rebuild and maintain its youthful appearance, demonstrated by a steady decline in average skin thickness and elasticity and resulting in thinner, less elastic and less supple skin.
External influences such as exposure to sunlight, diet and stress contribute to skin-age degradation, lead to lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and age spots, while internal influences – time and genetics – lead to slower cell turnover and the breakdown of collagen, elasticity and moisture retention, causing dryness, wrinkles and dull, rough skin.
Nourella® Active Skin Support System is a unique combination of cream and supplement tablet which stimulates, rebuilds and rejuvenates the skin and has been scientifically researched and developed to provide natural skin protection and improve skin structure, quality and appearance. Comprising of:

Suma Wholefoods, Europe’s largest single pay, worker owned co-operative hosted a visit from Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex on Thursday, September 10th. Founded in 1976, the vegetarian company supply a range of around 7000 natural food products and are market leaders in the wholesale natural grocery market.
Nominated for the visit through local organisation Community Foundation, HRH Prince Wales met workers at their Elland site to find out how a business can flourish under such a unique ethos. The equal management structure means the workers elect the board of directors, and workers have an equal say in the company. All workers, from finance director to receptionist, are paid the same hourly wage no matter how long they have worked at the company. Company-wide decisions are made as a group at quarterly general meetings. Suma Wholefoods was brought to the Prince’s attention because of this very different way of running a business , as well as their recent accolade of Cooperative of the Year, 2014.
HRH Price of Wales discussed the business with workers from the warehouse and office departments, giving him an understanding of how cooperation and egalitarianism can lead a company to great strengths. Suma Wholefoods showed that through group decisions and everyone having an equal voice, can create large profits, sustainability, as well as customer and employee loyalty. Last year Suma turned over £34 million with sales throughout the UK, and to over 50 countries internationally.
HRH Earl of Wessex agreed that this was certainly a very different way of running a business and very successful.

It’s been revealed that grocery prices in August rose by one per cent month-on-month.
That’s according to new data from groceries website, mySupermarket.co.uk, whose Groceries Tracker revealed that an average basket of 35 essential products cost £86.75 in August compared to £86.11 in July. Over the course of a year, the increase would cost shoppers an extra £33 for their favourite grocery products.
The products that increased the most in August compared to July were crisps (up six per cent), mushrooms (up 10 per cent) and onions, up by a massive 16 per cent. Broccoli was down two per cent, while carrots and cucumbers were down three per cent.
However, prices are still lower than a year ago as the same basket in August 2014 would have cost shoppers £91.19, a saving of five per cent.
Gilad Simhony, CEO of mySupermarket.co.uk, commented: “The increase in price for our essential products is worrying and could herald the beginning of a bigger rise in the cost of groceries. The good news is that shoppers do not need to pay more for the products they love as comparing prices and playing the supermarkets off one another can result in huge savings. Shoppers can save around £1,000 a year if they compare prices.”
