You put a lot of time, energy and money into carefully selecting and purchasing the skincare and cosmetics you use. You want them to be effective for as long as possible, right? Making sure you purchase products in airless, opaque packaging is the first step, but you can also protect your most precious potions in an unexpected way: keep your products in the fridge!

  • Keep products in the fridgeYour bathroom is a very volatile environment. It’s constantly filling with steam, clearing out, and changing temperature from cold to hot. For your products, it’s like being in the jungle! Delicate ingredients last longer when kept stable.
  • Your fridge may not have room for your whole beauty regimen, but certain things can benefit from the big chill: natural and organic products, skincare with powerful anti-aging ingredients, and favorite products you may not use very quickly because you stock up on them in case they’re discontinued.
  • Keep a plastic bin just for makeup and skincare products to keep them separate from the food in your fridge.
  • Have a little extra room? Fragrance also benefits from being kept cool. The steamy environment of your bathroom can damage the integrity of the fragrance. Plus, a spritz of body spray that’s been kept in the fridge can be very refreshing!

Hydration

When we think of beautiful skin, we think of skin that is moisturized with a healthy glow.

As we age, our skin naturally looses its ability to keep itself as hydrated as it did when we were younger. You may turn to face creams to help boost this moisture, but first, examine your cleanser. Why strip your skin of its natural oils with harsh soaps and then have to use all those heavy moisturizers?

Our Gentle Cleanser allows skin to maintain its natural moisture while adding the best available hydration:

 

  • Vegetable Glycerin attracts water and hydrates. Naturally found in your skin, this helps to boost those supplies.
  • Vegetable Cetyl Alcohol is derived from vegetable oil and locks moisture into the skin.
  • Aloe Vera has been used for hundreds of years for its abilities as a moisturizer.
  • Hyaluronic Acid is naturally occurring in skin. It’s the glue that holds our skin together and gives it the smoothness of youth. It absorbs 1000 times its weight in water, so it takes water out of the air and puts it into your skin.
  • Methylpropanediol is hydrating and this enhances the penetration of the other ingredients into your skin.
  • Ceramides naturally occur on the skin surface to protect your skin against water loss. The Gentle Cleanser will add additional ceramides to your skin to keep your skin protected all day long.
  • Cholesterol gets a bad name when there’s too much in our blood vessels. But it’s also naturally found on the surface of the skin, and it helps to create a barrier to keep in needed moisture.

 

Gentle Cleanser will remove dirt, oil, toxins, impurities, environmental pollutants and all traces of makeup while enhancing your skin’s natural hydration and moisture balance.
