What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Ingredient focus: A guide to Neem for hair and skin

It brings us a certain amount of pride to state that ayurvedic skincare has, and will be passed on for generations. Now more than ever, eastern formulations are having a major impact on beauty, whether it is K- or J-beauty, and the ancient science of ayurveda from closer to home.

Every once in a while, the beauty industry renews its kinship with an herbal, ayurvedic skincare ingredient that shows such promise in elevating beauty, that even derms might recommend it.

And then there is Neem, an ingredient known for its many benefits: anti-ageing, acne-fighting, immune system healing and growth stimulation.

The essential oil and extract that comes from the neem plant is rich in minerals, vitamins and fatty acids. This might be why it has been used for centuries to treat various conditions, and is even referred to in Sanskrit as sarva rogi nivarini, meaning “the cure of all ailments.”  Originating in India, the neem tree is now cultivated in more than 50 countries globally, its therapeutic properties being utilised worldwide.
