February 4th, 2013

Estimated to top $11 billion by 2016, organic products are the fastest growing part of the personal care market segment, according to market research firm Mintel. This segment is projected to outperform the conventional products very soon, and this big trend also presents many opportunities for manufacturers and retailers in the natural and organic skin care channel. Undeterred by the economic slowdown, research indicates that natural products are becoming more affordable as well.

Experiencing double-digit growth since 2005, the natural personal care market will continue to witness double-digit growth to $6 billion in 2015. Manufacturers’ sales in the natural segment are expected to increase by a CAGR of 11.2% to reach USD $6,624 million in 2015, up from USD $3,891 million in 2010. Skin care had 42.1 percent share in the total PC sales in 2010 with the natural hair care product segment at 12.7 percent market share. (Source: 2011 Kline & Company.)

Fresh Organic Goat’s Milk Soap is Latest Skin Care Trend

October 2nd, 2012

Lately there is much news about farm fresh – everything is the latest trend, from organic vegetables and fruit grown on the farm to using fresh goat’s milk soap. Goat’s milk has been used for natural skin care because of its remarkable healing properties. The Egyptians used to bathe in goat’s milk soap.

There are benefitial alpha-hydroxy acids in goat’s milk soap that actually penetrate the top layers of your skin to exfoliate or slough off the dead skin. This exfoliation helps stimulate your skin to regenerate healthy cells,helps lessen fine wrinkles by feeding the ski. It is able to penetrate skin cell walls in a way other soap can. The pH of goat’s milk is very close to your skin’s own pH. Basically this enables skin to absorb the emollients.

Herbalix Cream Bar Soaps are based in farm-fresh Nubian Goat’s Milk, the treatment that is conditions including acne, eczema, psoriasis, and simply itchy skin. The company also uses a combination of sustainable plant based botanicals that to clean and protect without drying out the skin. Goat’s milk features almost three times more beta-casein than cow’s milk, which means it is easily absorbed into the skin for hydration. A natural emollient, goat’s milk can moisturize the skin as it contains Vitamins A, B6, B12 and E vitamins.

The milk of a goat contains alpha-hydroxy and caprylic acids – which naturally cleanse and help slough off dead skin cells, then moisturize and leave smooth new cells. This natural moisturizer has lipoproteins that absorb easily into our skin to seal in moisture, preventing dry skin, and premature aging. It is the caproic, caprylic, and capric acids in goat milk soap that helps maintain the ideal pH for human skin. Goat’s milk also helps neutralize the acid that is sitting on top of the outermost layer of skin which is designed to fight off harmful viruses or bacteria that lead to infections.

Herbalix Restoratives’ Fresh Goat’s Milk Cream Bar Soap is designed for total skin care but it is terrific for sensitive skin types too. The benefits of the Herbalix Nubian Goat’s Milk Soap are as follows: It is great for troublesome skin conditions; is based in non-drying Nubian Goat’s Milk; can be used on the face; moisturizes as it cleans, and it rinses clean, and leaves no soap residue.

The Benefits of Olive Oil in Skin Care Products

June 30th, 2012

Olive oil has been a Mediterranean cosmetic and culinary staple forever. You might have read about it in history books –the ancient Romans used it in their baths to collect dirt and sweat.

Sadly, today we have embraced health and beauty products made from primarily synthetic ingredients. But, olive oil is prized for its lubricating properties for skin and hair because it is brimming with vitamins A and E.  Plus olive oil contains a triterpene called squalene that is highly valuable, which has antioxidant properties and is believed to inhibit UV damage.

Using olive oil based skin care products also help maintain and restore skin’s elasticity, and when used after a bath or shower, can help the skin to retain hydration by inhibiting water loss.  Herbalix Supreme Solution body moisturizers contains high concentrations of not only olive oil, but also skin nourishing emollients including sweet almond oil, avocado oil and rice bran oil (which also contains squalene).

The Herbalix Supreme Solution Intensive Body Moisturizers are quite potent, water-free moisturizers that are formulated for both men and women.  They are free of petroleum products, propylene glycol, parabens and other synthetic ingredients. Herbalix moisturizers deliver a heavy dose of lubrication to parched skin.  They are available in either fragrance-free versions or suffused with fresh and invigorating essential oils including clary sage essential oil, grapefruit essential oil, blood orange essential oil and cinnamon bark essential oil, among others.

Supreme Solution moisturizers are very intense, unlike most commercial lotions. In order to receive the full benefit, one must massage the lotion deeply and thoroughly to allow the nourishing oils to penetrate fully.  Once fully absorbed, Herbalix Supreme Solution Body Lotion will provide continuous skin softening properties for hours on end.

It’s important for your skin to look as radiant as possible.  Before heading out to the beach or any sun-intensive summer destination, try treating your skin to a natural, soothing and luxurious Supreme Solution Intensive Body Moisturizer.

Americans’ Eco-Consciousness is Slow

May 13th, 2011

Sadly, a recent *research survey shows that most Americans have been slow to adopt attitudes focusing on being eco-conscious. The good news is that Herbalix uses packaging that is safe, ingredient-protective, and eco-friendly, and our organic skin care formulas contain no synthetic ingredients or harmful preservatives.

The survey, however, indicates that people in our country seem to be taking baby steps when it comes to conserving energy and protecting our environment. What’s worse, it seems the mature part of the population’s behaviors are very slow when it comes to the environment.

For instance, less than one in four respondents said they buy eco-friendly products (green purchases).

Ultimately, one out of four Americans who are 65+ say they don’t care about climate change and do not perceive that it will have any significant effect during their lifetime. Other key findings include:

– 43% said they would only purchase eco-friendly products if they were offered at the same price as their regular brands.

– 38% would choose the more eco-friendly option.

– 39% don’t believe there is proof that climate change is occurring.

– 45% of those in the 55+ age range are skeptical about climate change.

– 79 percent of 18-34-year-olds believe that new technologies and alternative sources of renewable energy are necessary to reduce global warming.

– 93% Americans are willing to take steps to reduce their individual carbon footprint by reusing and recycling products.

About three quarters of the United States thinks they can reverse the greenhouse gas effects.

All in all people know that it is going to take behavioral changes among people everywhere the globe.

However, only 46 percent of individuals who responded to the survey said they were avid recyclers and 24 percent indicated that they only recycle products in their kitchen, echoing the point that cosmetics packaging is still not a priority when it comes to recycling.

Herbalix Restoratives has been doing our part for years when it comes to eco-friendly products. All of the plastic packaging used in our products has been identified and accepted for recycling, plus it is BPA free and leach-free. Last, Herbalix boxes are fully recyclable.
