Many of you have probably thought I cannot use that product, it contains alcohol and will dry, irritate my skin. This is not true and is a very common misconception. The most commonly used type of alcohol in skincare are fatty alcohols, such as cetyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol, stearyl or behenyl alcohol. These alcohols are typically derived from coconut or palm and are solids at room temperature, therefore must be melted for use in cosmetic formulations. These alcohols do not dry out the skin and are used to thicken a formulation, emulsify oils into water and to condition the skin. The opposite of what many people think. The amount of alcohol used is so minimal that it will have NO IMPACT on your skin.

One of the most damaging skin care fallacies pertains to exfoliation. Most people under exfoliate because the skin care fallacy says that exfoliation will dry and thin out the skin. This could not be further from the truth. The skin is a dynamic organ, the more you wear it down the more it grows. You can take a dull, lifeless, ashen looking skin and turn it into radiant skin by exfoliation. If you take off old, dry skin cells on a daily basis, you open up the skin so moisture can permeate your skin better. So if your skin is dry, you have to start with something a bit counter-intuitive: you have to exfoliate first.

While other brands focus on one or two key ingredients, we think it is best to use as many scientifically proven ingredients as can fit in the formulation because they can all contribute to the skin in different ways. The key is to use the RIGHT ingredients in the RIGHT percentages, because with skin care everything is in the percentages. Our most important goal is to give you an exceptionally high percentage of the key ingredients. Our products are one of the most expensively made products in the industry as far as the ingredients are concerned. Not packaging and not marketing.
