A picture is worth a thousand words. Two weeks ago while selling our products at the Folsom Blvd Flea Market, a young girl, who is also a vendor there, asked if we had anything to help her hands. She said her hands itched terribly and were breaking out in bumps, rashes and dry spots. She went to a Dr. who said she had eczema. He prescribed her a cream but after a couple weeks of using it she said her hands had not healed and seemed to be getting worse and the itching more intense. She then showed us her hands. Now at that time we didn't think to take pictures of her hands because we felt so bad for her, the last thing on our mind was to take pictures . Her hands were completely raw from scratching, the backs and palms of her hands were covered with bumps and blisters traveling up past her wrist. They looked terrible. 

We recommended our sugar scrub for her to use gently on her hands every other day and to rub in a small amount of our body butter to her hands and writst once or twice a day or as needed. 

We seen her 5 days later. This time we took pictures. Her hands were looking better but still had some problem areas. She said the scrubs 

   and butter gave her hands so much relief from the itching. She picked up one more small jar of the scrub.

We seen her again in 5 days and this is what her hands looked like. Completely cleared up. She says she loves the way her hands feel now and she was so proud of her hands she got her nails done, which she said,  is something she hadn't done in a long time because she was always to embarrassed.

The skin is the largest organ on the body. It responds to what we put on it.

If we put chemicals, dyes, preservatives and other harmful man made ingredients on our skin, then the skin will respond accordingly, it will provide us with eczema, psoriasis, cancer, wrinkles, brown spots, constant itch, dry patches, red blotches, it will become dull, flaky, it will loose it's elasticity and make us look older.

If we treat our skin to all natural vitamin enriched butters and oils and pamper ourselves to a regular skin care routine, then our skin will respond and provide us with a smooth soft feeling, it will maintain elasticity keeping us looking young and help soften wrinkles. It will reduce the risk of skin cancers and other skin disorders. Our skin will replace itself with fresh new skin making it vibrant and healthy making us look good.

 


Chemicals & Skin Care June 19, 2015 14:58 4 Comments

People are looking for safer, more natural skin care products, but there is a lot of confusion about what "natural" actually means.  The word "natural" is on labels everywhere, yet there is no regulated definition. The U.S. government does not require health studies or pre-market testing for personal care products so there are many non-natural components and processes in most U.S. body care products. Even those labeled "natural" may contain harsh preservatives or ingredients.

Preservatives are necessary in most body and skin care products, especially products that contain water, and we know that preservatives and chemicals such as parabens, polypropylene and polyethylene glycols, sodium lauryl and laureth sulfates are not only bad for our body but also for our environment because the body care products that everyone uses eventually go down the drain and into our environment.

Fragrance is a word found on many products that claim to be natural, the fact is most fragrance is man made to mimic the the smell of something else.  Fragrance oils should be naturally derived, if it is not, it shouldn't be used on your body. When looking for a special scent or aroma it's best to use products that contain  Essential Oils. Essential oils are not only good for the skin but may have aromatherapy benefits, as well.

All of our products are made with ingredients that actually nourish your skin and body. We use no water in any of our skin care products so we don't need preservatives. All of our products have a shelf life of approximately 8 months to a year.

Our goal is to be the go-to place for the highest-quality, natural skin care products.
