Akamai sent me products for review & this post contains affiliate links.
Let me start off this review by saying that I don’t like multi-use products as a rule. I find that in almost all cases, they serve one purpose really well and disappoint in other categories, so my normal beauty/personal care routine contains distinct products for distinct uses (with the exception of my SW Basics Cream, which I use for lots of things).
So when Akamai reached out offering products for review, I planned to find the best use for each item rather than make it work in all the ways described on their site. EcoCult and Temporary-House Wifey reviewed their lineup about a year ago with mixed feelings, but I wanted to test the products myself and see what I could discover.
Akamai’s overarching philosophy is what I would describe as effective simplicity. As their multi-use premise would suggest, they’re interested in making personal care easier, reducing overall steps and products required, and ensuring that products are healthy and nourishing.
The majority of Akamai’s products contain minerals in an effort to support the body’s microbiome, which is vital for total body health, and several contain fulvic acid. I actually had no idea what fulvic acid was before using these products, but it turns out it is used to treat some serious medical conditions, like cancer and Alzheimer’s, and chronic condition like fatigue. According to WebMD:
Fulvic acid might have various effects in the body. Fulvic acid might block reactions in the body that cause allergy symptoms. It might also interrupt steps involved in the worsening of brain disorders such as dementia. Additionally, fulvic acid might reduce inflammation and prevent or slow the growth of cancer. Fulvic acid seems to have immune-stimulating and antioxidant effects.
Note that pregnant and nursing women and people with auto-immune disorders should be cautious, especially when ingesting fulvic acid.
