The Benefits of OligoScan Technology and Heavy Metal Skin Purging from Herbalix Restoratives

February 21st, 2018

-Aluminum Toxicity Experts Speak at the 5th Seminar of Minerals and Toxic Metals February 18, 2018 in Akihabara, Tokyo Japan- 

When Michael and Elizabeth (Liz) Fessler, founders of Herbalix Restoratives, started to understand Aluminum (Al) and why it is used in antiperspirants, they discovered there was a lack of clarity on the safety of aluminum in cosmetics.  This led them to the discovery of a new underarm product – Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant® with botanical, osmotic properties, and clinically proven to purge aluminum from the underarm.

“The belief that aluminum is only from antiperspirants, is a myth,” said Michael C. Fessler.  “Researching the many sources of aluminum in air, food, water, cosmetics, and medications, which humans absorb every day, led to the development of an aluminum resource learning center for understanding Al toxicity. We became educational advocates once we realized that it is associated with over thirty diseases and there is no standard of care for the treatment of this health hazard.”

Three and one-half years ago, Herbalix was introduced to a medical device called the OligoScan, designed to measure intracellular heavy metal intoxication via the skin (tissue) using spectrophotometry. Everything the company’s founders had suspected about Al became clear; it can affect every cell in the body and the balance of minerals. In using the OligoScan their greatest discovery was that aluminum storage in the skin is the first stage in detox and that topical purging of aluminum helps to restore the body’s sweat channels.

Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another”. – Einstein

We live in a polluted industrial world and human bodies are subject to absorbing toxins from the air, water,  and food – every day. One of the most dangerous healthwise, Al is the most abundant metal on both the earth and the moon. It is an element that cannot be destroyed and can only be changed from one form to another.

Herbalix first developed the botanical preservative “Herbalix” for cosmetic application, and in the process, the founders discovered a topical formulation for absorbing alum salt. This paved the way to develop specially formulated skin purging products for remediating heavy metals using excretory pathways targeting contaminants in organs and identifying the involvement of aluminum in the lymphatic system.

Today the Fesslers work with aluminum scientists and doctors throughout the world – including at the upcoming prestigious Seminar of Minerals and Toxic Metals on February 18, 2018, in Akihabara, Tokyo, Japan.

Through the years the founders of Herbalix have learned that each person requires individual guidance for the detoxification of heavy metals and maintaining mineral balance. By 2014 the Fesslers partnered with a company known as OligoScan who had developed a revolutionary method to detect the bioavailability of trace minerals and heavy metal intoxication via spectrophotometry. Its OligoScan Spectrophotometer is now used by practitioners to detect heavy metals in patients globally.

The reality is that each and every human being is distinct, and excretes toxins in varying degrees due to the heavy metal toxicity burdening the human excretory system. More and more people are losing the ability to sweat. One of the benefits of using the Oligoscan is that each and every person scanned is distinct.  A practitioner can also see the distinction between an excreter and nonexcreter.  This is important to know before beginning detox treatments.

There are currently several different methods to test for heavy metals including, hair, blood, urine, and tissue.

The OligoScan technology is an invaluable screening tool for obtaining actual intracellular tissue levels of minerals as opposed to other testing methods which are only indicative of what is being pulled out of the extracellular circulatory system. It’s the most innovative testing methodology with the fastest turn around of results available anywhere in the world. OliogScan provides a new approach for practitioners to understand that it is imperative to work with the intracellular heavy metal toxicity before addressing mineral imbalances.

More specifically, for example, a hair analysis shows which metals were present during the last few months, and if a body cannot detoxify well, low amounts of metals will be found in hair, which is known as false-negative results.

Blood, urine or hair analysis results take about two weeks, while the Oligoscan provides results immediately.

Urinalysis shows to what extent the body can excrete metals. In a normal spontaneous urine sample, almost nothing is excreted. Only after the body is provoked reveals increased metal concentrations in the urine. This is done with a challenge test for toxic metals and it is a valuable test that shows specifically what amount metals are present in the extracellular environment.

Blood tests show metals which have circulated recently. Metals are dumped from the bloodstream into the tissues within a few days. Therefore, blood can only be used in acute situations to test for toxic metals. The amounts of minerals and trace elements remain fairly constant in blood.  For instance, many people with muscle cramps often show normal magnesium levels in serum, and also if the magnesium content is measured in red blood cells.

The OligoScan measures intracellularly. The urine challenge test, an extracellular measurement, and OligoScan, complement each other completely in this aspect.

Understanding aluminum’s ability to rob the body of critical minerals and interfere with functions such as mobility, memory, detoxing and digestion, provides a way to show the effects of how Herbalix products work in opening up the lymphatic system, purging heavy metals with ultimate validation measured in the OliogScan.

Topical detoxification (chelation) is an effective, easily controlled, less problematic and convenient approach to removing heavy metals.  Skin purging has the benefit of reaching places where internal cleanses may be restricted or have limited effect (skin, lymph, and dense breast tissue).

Herbalix topical skin purging products include:

Restoratives Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant (NCDD) – formulated to help cleanse and purge away toxic, heavy metals (aluminum) and impurities that have accumulated in the underarm area.  Use as a companion to Herbalix Non-Suppressing Daytime Deodorants.   Ref:  Herbalix Restoratives Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant Clinical Trial – April 13, 2007

Belly Fat Freedom™ (BFF) – a topical liver detoxification and cleansing approach, targets removal of retained toxins and heavy metals, promoting lymphatic drainage.  BFF is a remarkably safe and effective way to alleviate the heavy burden placed on the liver and deep visceral fat of the belly.

Sentinel Breast Crème™ an effective, topical detoxification poultice with the ability to purge and absorb accumulated toxins and heavy metals, in the skin, breast tissue, vaso-constricted lymph nodes and micro-vessels.  Used in conjunction with NCDD.  Ref: WIRB Sponsor Protocol Num: HC-JPD-001.01, WIRB Protocol #20110796.

Upright™ Stick for Men – As males age, they can accumulate toxic heavy metals leading to chronic inflammation in organs, most vulnerable the testes. To maintain a healthy, clean reproductive system, apply a light coat of Upright to the scrotum and perineum area periodically.  This topical crème made with detoxing powders will trap, absorb, and cleanse away (thru osmosis) unwanted aluminum allowing blood flow and natural nitric oxide to return.

Organic Personal Care Market Expected at $15.98 Billion by 2020

November 10th, 2014

In a recent article entitled, Organic personal care market likely to post double-digit annual growth to 2020, by Simon Pitman, we learn that “most global regions are expected to post near double-digit annual growth in organic personal care over the next six years,” according to a new market research report. Grand View Research said the global market is slated to grow from approximately $8.20 billion in 2013 to approximately $15.98 billion by the year 2020, showing annual growth rates between nine and 10 percent across Asia, Europe and North America.Grand View Research believes that most of the growth is being driven primarily by increasing consumer awareness of organic products and product innovation.

Herbalix (www.Herbalix.com) is seeing growth in the organics marketeplace as well. In the past, personal care products for body cleansing primarily included  soap, body washes and  scrubs. Today, modern technologies are more scientific such as the company’s skin purging therapies which are of great interest to the medical community.

Of biggest concern are the commercial deodorants/antiperspirants that contain any type of aluminum, alum, petroleum or propylene glycol, which can lead to the buildup of chemicals under the arms. This can often not only result in irritation, but can also cause hygiene problems, or worse. Antiperspirants may leave a residual of alum salts in the underarm, and over a short period of time undetermined DNA damage might occur under the arms.

There is one unique product from Herbalix that can help eliminate any bad chemicals from our bodies — the Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant™.  It has been formulated to cleanse away buildup of unhealthy chemicals inside the body, and to release waste fluids. This in turn encourages healthy lymphatic flow, and absorbs all types of aluminums.  The bonus is that this process encourages a reduction in daytime odors.

An organic non-aluminum deodorant, the popular Herbalix Nighttime Detox Cleansing Deodorant™ offers an exceptional cleanse while it also deodorizes while you sleep. Daytime deodorants typically work during the day to regulate and absorb odors. Herbalix deodorants are all made with certified organic ingredients and no synthetic chemicals or aluminums.

Herbalix is seeing growth as well, with particular interest among medical practitioners who are purchasing and reselling the company’s skin purging detox products to patients in need.

Herbalix also just introduced a 20 Minute Session with Detox and Lymphatic Cleanfessler sm tn Organic Personal Care Market Expected at $15.98 Billion by 2020sing Coach
Mike Fessler (Right), who will discuss directions, suggestions and protocol instructions for the application of Herbalix topical skin purging products. Review overall wellness and personal status to determine toxic overload. The session is $75.00.

Can Coriander (Cilantro) chelate metals?

July 31st, 2014

This herb is used in many food dishes and found in the Mediterranean Diet.

This herb is used in many food dishes and found in the Mediterranean Diet. A number of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 (Folate), Vitamin C., E & K are found in coriander including traces of minerals such as magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, zinc.

HRCoriander Can Coriander (Cilantro) chelate metals?

Coriander.

contains antioxidants and has amazing antibacterial activity against germ negative and germ positive bacteria by breaking down cell membranes. Besides its antibacterial effect, the use of coriander oil in antibacterial formulations effectively kills pathogenic bacteria related to food borne diseases and hospital infections. It contains biosorbents effect to absorb liquids and solids: According to a study Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) essential oil: “Its antibacterial activity and mode of action evaluated by flow cytometry”. Filomena Silva, Susan Ferreira, Joao A. Queiroz and Fernanda C. Domingues – Journal of Medical Microbiology (2011), 60, 1479-1486 DO1 1Q10.1099/jmm 0.034157-0 034157 @2011 SGM.

While researching information on coriander, sometimes seemingly unrelated subjects can provide new leads such as The Uptake of Fluoride, Aluminum and Molybdenum By Some Vegetables From Irrigation Water by Arjun L. Khandare., G. Shanker Rao – National Institute of Nutrition (ICMR), J.Hum.Ecol., 19(4):283-288(2006). One of the vegetables used in the study for aluminum salt loading, was coriander. In a graph comparing amaranth and coriander from aluminum in irrigation water, the concentration of aluminum in coriander was 4 times greater compared to the control. The bottom line is that coriander absorbs metal ions from aluminum in water.

In 2005 Herbalix Restoratives sponsored a clinical study. The purpose of the study was to see how coriander works in HR topical Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant®. We arranged for two labs to take tape samples of NCDD and a leading antiperspirant for comparison. The first lab used CuDerm Strippings consisting of 3 each of the NCDD, 3 of the antiperspirant and 2 blank strippings. The CuDerm Strippings were then transferred to a black paper and sent off to a second laboratory to be tested for ICP-MS Spectrometer analysis.

After testing the strips the second lab emailed back to the first lab to inform them that because they had applied the strips on a piece of black paper, the test results showed an abnormal reading of elevated alum from the NCDD over the antiperspirant. How could a deodorant contain this much aluminum? The answer is that all NCDD samples showed the ability to draw the black ink (made from aluminum) from the paper thus became a discovery showing the ability of NCDD to chelate aluminum from an inorganic source.

Below are the numbers that established the breakthrough.

1. Antiperspirants 1. 1,800
2. Negative Control 2. 7,000
3. Antiperspirants 3. 1,550
4. Antiperspirants 4. 1,370
5. Detox Deodorant 5. 115,000
6. Detox Deodorant 6. 120,000
7. Negative Control 7. 34,100
8. Detox Deodorant 8. 112,000

That works out to 70 times more aluminum that the NCDD extracted from the black paper.

Back in 2004 while learning from sources how third world countries used certain seeds to filter water, the idea of adding coriander seed to a deodorant, at that time a novel idea, brought forth an amazing discovery.

In 2006 HR sponsored a clinical trial evaluating subjects for levels of aluminum in the underarm, using the CuDerm tape strips. the first week was used as a baseline without applying any antiperspirant, the second week using antiperspirants and the third week, with the NCDD.

Baseline results gave variations of aluminum levels but all individuals showed asymmetrical loading in the non dominant arm (left and right). The second week using antiperspirants showed spiking in one arm vs the other. The third week, with the NCDD, showed reduction of aluminum in the underarms. Subjects returned to symmetrical levels (minimized the effects of antiperspirants) resulting in below baseline levels of aluminum indicating that NCDD was effectively absorbing aluminum.

Special Note: Baseline readings of aluminum variations in the samples demonstrate the human burden caused by aluminum (coming from air, water, food, antiperspirants, medication). Additional testing for metal loading can include skin as indicated in these studies.

In a follow up clinical trial in 2012, also using human subjects, it was clearly apparent in thermography scans that the NCDD and Sentinel Breast Crème® demonstrated symmetrical release of alum salts present in subjects tested. The asymmetrical loading of alum salts from antiperspirants can lead to health issues especially for women whose breast fluids drain thru the underarms.

These tests provide evidence of the ability for a topical detox with coriander to purge metals from the body.

The Impact of Ridding the Body of Aluminum via Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Crème

April 21st, 2014

Did you know that your bloodstream can absorb whatever toxic chemicals you put on your body? If you were to even try to count toxic ingredients in cosmetic and personal care products, it would be overwhelming to find that about one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care and cosmetic products have been listed as hazardous. This includes Aluminum, reproductive toxins, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, and pesticides. Why do people continue to use these products given that they cause such a high risk to our health?

Aluminum The Impact of Ridding the Body of Aluminum via Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Crème

Aluminum.

Aluminum has cancer-causing properties. New research says that Aluminum has cancer-causing properties, even though it is still considered by the so-called health authorities as perfectly acceptable to eat, apply under the arms as an antiperspirant and to inject into the body of a child as a vaccine adjuvant.

However, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry there were increased levels of aluminum in non-invasively collected nipple aspirate fluids from 19 breast cancer patients who were tested against 16 healthy control subjects. New research says that Aluminum has cancer-causing properties, even though it is still considered by the so-called health authorities as perfectly acceptable to eat, apply under the arms as an antiperspirant and to inject into the body of a child as a vaccine adjuvant. According to a recent study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry there were increased levels of aluminum in non-invasively collected nipple aspirate fluids from 19 breast cancer patients who were tested against 16 healthy control subjects.

Herbalix Restoratives (http://www.herbalix.com) has discovered a new insight into the knowledge of breast behavior stemming from the company’s clinical trial (WIRB #IRB00000533) entitled, “Impact of Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant® in Conjunction with Sentinel Breast Crème™ on Obstruent Salt Fluids in Breasts” which was conducted in the United States in 2013. The purpose of this trial was to monitor lymphatic flow patterns in breasts of women with fibrous cystic conditions. and to provide validation in how the Herbalix line of skin chelation detox products cleanse and unclog any lymphatic pathways. The purpose was also to observe emunctory waste, circulation, and lymph flow.

Results were from sequential thermal imaging that recorded, identified and evaluated pattern changes in each breast during the course of the clinical trial. When reviewing thermography images during the study researchers observed what appear to be influences extending from external or seemingly unrelated factors which up to this time had not been linked or associated with breast congestion.

Contributors such as antiperspirants mixed metal earrings, metals in dental work, , crystal style deodorants, and even body piercing, may disrupt and congest the breast’s ability to effectively and efficiently transfer cellular waste thru the underarm or skin in the form of sweat.

The Herbalix Nighttime Detox Cream can be used all over the body. It’s excellent for breast, neck, stomach, groin, as well as the bottom of the feet as a topical detox. HerbalixNighttimeDetoxCreme The Impact of Ridding the Body of Aluminum via Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Crème

Additional features and benefits of the non-aluminum deodorant are as follows:
• Clinically tested
• Made with safe, botanical, chelating herbs
• Safe, effective, convenient
• Weekly maintenance program for cleansing and wellness
• Resolves asymmetric drainage in underarms

How does it work? You will apply the product for 30 nights initially– as most people have lifetime of toxic accumulation built up in their bodies, and it takes time to detox it all. Apply at bedtime. The monthly maintenance program will help counterbalance the alum as it enters the body in the future from multiple sources.

Don’t be surprised if you smell while detoxing. Some users will experience a temporary sensory reaction caused by what is exiting the body but for many sweating simply reveals an odor while the body is cleansing. After the initial 30-night cleanse, odors can be controlled with periodic application of the detox deodorant and use of a non suppressive day time deodorant.

Daily Detox Make Easy: Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant

January 28th, 2014

The dangers of aluminum in our bodies is becoming mainstream. The problem is that people still do not realize how much aluminum is actually present in their everyday lives — from food to prescriptions to personal care products, aluminum, alum or some form of this mineral compound, are in just about everything we touch, breath and eat. Today, many people are trying to follow an Aluminum-Abstinence Therapy (AAT).

If you are really interested in learning about the damage that Aluminum could do to your body, check out our white paper entitled, “The era of Aluminum Overuse.”

Below we list just a few sources that might contain toxic amounts of aluminum.

Any food with aluminized baking powder, which is a mixture of chemicals used as leavening in baking products to make a cake (for example) rise during the baking process. It is typically used in foods like cookies, doughnuts, pie crusts, waffles, as well as prepared cheeses, and meats. READ THE LABELS! Also, watch out for aluminum in creamers for coffee, microwave popcorn, hot cocoa mixes and pickles/relish. Just look for aluminum-free baked goods, and other products such as non-aluminum deodorants.

When it comes to personal care products, read the labels on the following products: Body lotions, face creams, anti-perspirants, crystal style deodorants (alum salts), commercial soaps, most cosmetics, shampoos/conditioners, lip balms, and almost all suntan lotions and sun screen or sunblock products.

Many over-the-counter medications and prescription drugs contain aluminum so again, read the labels and consult your doctor or pharmacist. You can ask your doctor for alternative, aluminum-free medications.

DetoxDeodorant Daily Detox Make Easy: Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant

Use every night for 30 days or longer to detox aluminum from your body.

If you find that most of the products in your home do have aluminum in them, begin a slow and steady detox program by using the aluminum-free Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant. Aluminum of any type, toxic air vapors caused by chem trails or gasoline and environmental toxins are absorbed through the skin and lungs. They enter the blood and are ultimately transported throughout the body, ending up in the lymph system and are stored in our cells as well. The Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant cleanses and deodorizes while you sleep. It is safe, simple, convenient and works to cleanse your body thru the underarms. With frequent use, over time (usually a minimum of 30 nights) your odors and perspiration will become more manageable and less toxic. Here is what one happy customer had to say.

“Thank you so much for your nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant. It has been the only deodorant to help my chronic armpit odor problems. I greatly appreciate the quality product that you offer.” – Melinda S. Stone Lake, WI.

Google’s Calico Aimed to be Data Source for Anti-Aging

December 13th, 2013

Google has started Calico as a data source for anti-aging and other diseases according to the media as described here by CNN. It appears as if Calico will take a ‘big-data’ approach to speed up health care discoveries on cryonics, cloning and nanotechnology — anything that can help extend human life.

The big question is who validates their findings? Harvard is attempting the same thing, so it makes for an interesting conversation.

For the New Year of 2014 Herbalix intends to continue with its mission of educating people about the success of its topical non-aluminum detox products including the Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant as a new scientific way towards better health. The products continue to receive testimonials from customers who rave about the results. Just a few are below:

For anyone who has been using commercial antiperspirants, it is probably a good idea to read the label and see if it contains any type of aluminum, alum, petroleum or propylene glycol. All of these ingredients can lead to the buildup of chemicals under your arms. And if you want to read more about why aluminum in body care products is so bad, then click the link.

Deodorants Can Cause Allergic Contact Dermatitis but not Herbalix Deodorants

October 7th, 2013

According to a study from Researcher MV Heisterberg, the most frequent cause of contact dermatitis allergy is the fragrances in deodorants, and cosmetic products are the main cause of fragrance contact allergy. This study compared deodorants and fragrance mixes, and it led Heisterberg and colleagues to determine that deodorants were the leading causes of fragrance allergy. This is especially true among men.

Fragrance is not absolutely necessary to the function of a deodorant, and in fact, there are plenty of fragrance free deodorants on the market, which can help prevent contact dermatitis, asthma and allergies in general. It is also important to ask if there is a “masking agent” used to disguise the scent as these too are chemicals and do not remove the fragrance simply block the body’s ability to detect it. No Added Fragrance tells you there are no chemicals or fragrances found in the product.

ContactDermatitus Deodorants Can Cause Allergic Contact Dermatitis but not Herbalix Deodorants

Contact Dermatitus of the skin.

Other research has also pointed out the seriousness of aluminum in most commercial deodorants. A percentage of people who are allergic to aluminum may also experience contact dermatitis when exposed to aluminum in deodorants. Non-aluminum deodorants and antiperspirants and deodorants are safer, according to current research.

It has been found that aluminum-based compounds used as active ingredients in antiperspirants form a temporary plug within the sweat duct, stopping the flow of sweat to the skin’s surface. Some research suggests that these aluminum-based compounds, typically applied frequently and also left on the skin near the breast tissue, may be absorbed by the skin and cause estrogen-like (hormonal) effects. As estrogen has the ability to promote the growth of breast cancer cells, some scientists believe that the aluminum-based compounds in antiperspirants may contribute to breast cancer.

Herbalix has formulated its Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant for this reason. For anyone who has been using a commercial deodorant or antiperspirant, simply check the label to see if it contains any type of aluminum, alum, petroleum or propylene glycol. These ingredients can lead to the buildup of chemicals under the arms, resulting in irritation, or worse. Antiperspirants may leave an alum salt residual in the underarm.

Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant cleanses away buildup to release waste fluids, encourages healthy lymphatic flow, and absorbs all types of aluminums, encouraging a reduction in daytime odors.

Non-Aluminum Deodorants are Gaining in Popularity

February 8th, 2013

The New Year always prompts people to begin new regimens and promise new affirmations for better health. There are recent studies about the dangers of some of the various ingredients in our everyday personal care items and household products — causing everything from learning deficits to cancer. In fact there has been recent news about the possible link between aluminum and breast cancer. As a result non-aluminum deodorants are gaining in popularity.

Stop and think it through, and it makes sense. Our underarms feature the lymph node which is in turn linked by lymphatic vessels with fluids that surrounds our cells. The lymphatic system plus the sweat glands drain waste from human tissue. This helps the body fight off infections. Some waste leaves our bodies through the sweat glands, and the liver and our kidneys. However, if our lymph glands become filled up with aluminum from the use of antiperspirants, then our bodies can’t drain the waste effectively.

What really happens? Aluminum typically enters our bodies externally via pores and sweat glands, food, water, air and medications, then it collects in the tissues. Ultimately it ends up in our lymph glands. When aluminum is found in the body, it can be a contributing factor in neurological degeneration which is caused by cellular mutation.

Over the last couple of years, there has been an increase in the the use of non-aluminum deodorants as people have learned more over the Internet about the potential dangers of the ingredients in traditional antiperspirant. As organic and green products become more popular, many manufacturers such as Herbalix Restoratives (http://www.herbalix.com) are eager to market their products as genuinely organic.

There are a number of women, and some medical practitioners who believe that antiperspirants are linked to mammography. They often cite the hazardous health effects of radiation, and there are other studies that prove the dangers of many ingredients used in everyday beauty and personal care products including aluminum. This is why you see more and more aluminum-free deodorants on the market.

Natural Skin Care Trends for 2013

December 2nd, 2012

One fairly odd skin care trend for 2013 is a “Nightingale Poo” treatment which has beneficial enzymes in the bird’s feces. Lovely! This treatment can be used to exfoliate and help rejuvenate the skin, and is just one of the many new concepts surrounding natural skin care products. However, this is probably one we would not recommend. However, there is huge growth in the natural and organic skin care and cosmetic industry, as evidenced below.

Mintel, a market research firm, did a forecast back in 2010 showing that the skin care future would be bright with sales projected to increase from $4.35 billion in 2009 to $4.97 in 2013 after economic recovery in the United States and globally. The firm also said that the biggest year on year growth would take place in 2013 at 4.9 percent.

The latest trends today in cosmetics and skin care involve new projection motion sensor technologies. For example, in the Asia Pacific where space is limited, marketers are using technology to target the consumer and bring them into the buying experience. First they will track to find out if you are a man or a woman, and you may hear and see water, then when you walk away this water turns into a trickle.

New technology in Brazil projects images of real live people in digital form onto a screen featuring products along the side. If you are a customer, you would simply point at the product you wish to try, then use your finger to pretend to apply lipstick, and it will suddenly appear on your lips in the image on the mirror.

When it comes to natural skin care products, in 2013 the trends will continue for pure organic skin creams, and serums that support skin cell regeneration. Detoxification creams will become more and more popular – even those that help target belly fat for weight loss – such as Belly Stripper. One detoxing product is called the Herbalix Cleansing Detox Deodorant, which cleanses and deodorizes while you sleep, removing any buildup of metals like aluminum caused from antiperspirants. This ultimately supports healthy lymphatic flow, and ultimately reduces underarm odors altogether.
