Organic Skin Care

By Tammera Aranda

Why Choose Organic Skin Care Products?

What we choose to apply on our skin is important, just as what we choose to eat is important to our overall health. Processed foods have most of the nutrients stripped from them so the healthier choice for our bodies is raw, natural, preferably organic food. The same can be said for skin care choices. Our skin is a living, breathing organ, and the largest in the body. Choosing certified organic skin care is important in decreasing the toxic load on our system. Here are some potentially harmful ingredients that are used in manufacturing the most common non-organic skin care and make-up items:

• Mercury

• Dioxane

• Nitrosamines


• Cyclomethicone

• Ammonium Laureth Sulfate

• Alcohol, Isopropyl (SD-40)

• Polyethylene Glycol

How effective is organic skin care? 

As a professional in the skin care industry for over 20 years, it has been found that the best skin care available originated in nature. Organic skin care products work better simply because they are made with superior raw active ingredients. The skin absorbs, recognizes and utilizes pure ingredients better than synthetic materials.

Fish Stocking in Swede Creek Lake

Swede Creek Lake is an outstanding resource and amenity at Cordillera Ranch, and during my 16 years on the Ranch, we have watched the fish populations remain fairly healthy. In 2015, we did a fish survey in Swede Creek Lake to get an estimate of the health and numbers of fish and that report found a very healthy population of bass and several species of sunfish. Over the years, we have caught the following species out of Swede Creek Lake: largemouth or black bass, Guadalupe or spotted bass, rock bass, red breast sun fish, long ear sunfish, green sunfish, bluegill, channel catfish, striped bass and a few turtle species that include the red-ear slider, Texas river cooter and softshell turtle. We have also seen nutra rat and beaver using the lake as home.
