Heat and Skin Care

Published on by

When the temperatures begin to rise, we often have concerned customers calling in about their products arriving hot to the touch and how this may or may not affect their efficacy.

All products undergo a heat/cool and freeze/thaw test in order to make it to the consumer market. Products are tested under extreme temperature changes for extended periods of time. These tests ensure that the active ingredients and overall product composition are not compromised even under extreme temperatures.

Rest assured that if your products are exposed to heat while on the delivery truck or left on the porch, the efficacy of the product is not compromised. Simply, bring the product inside and let the product go back to room temperature by storing it in a cool, dark place. Make sure to let the product go back to room temperature before using it. Some products have to be shaken or stirred before use if the ingredients separated. Natural products may also change in color, but the efficacy will remain the same.

We hope this information is helpful, enjoy your summer!

StriVectin-SH Age Protect SPF30/PA+++

Published on by

We all know that when it comes to skin health, wearing sunscreen on a daily basis is as essential as drinking plenty of water, taking our vitamins, and getting ample sleep. In fact, we know that sunscreen is the single most important step in our skincare regimen. What many of us don’t know if that most conventional sunscreen products only protect against UVB rays, but UVA rays, which are invisible, are just as damaging to our skin. UVB rays are known as the burning rays, the ones that force melanocytes into overdrive to produce color to protect our cells, and thus a tan line is an indicator of skin damage. UVA rays are the aging rays, the ones that makes our skin crinkly and wrinkly – but don’t always produce a burn. Both UVA and UVB rays are ever present, even on cloudy days. That’s why it’s of the utmost importance to wear sunscreen on a daily basis to protect your skin from both UVA and UVB damage.

The new StriVectin-SH Age Protect SPF 30 is an ultra sheer yet highly potent oil-free treatment sunscreen that delivers the highest grade UVA protection available while shielding from UVB rays with sun protection factor of 30. This elegant formula also contains the patented NIA-144 molecule, which is clinically proven to repair sun damage while strengthening the skin’s barrier. The StriVectin-SH formula also contains a potent berry antioxidant blend to protect the cells and collagen against degradation and free radicals. And the product not only smells like delicious cucumber but also soothes the skin with cucumber and rose extracts.

Do you like StriVectin? We love the line, too! And we’re planning a very special giveaway surprise for you!!! Make sure to enter into our current giveaway on our Facebook page!
