by kelly / November, 4 2015 01:30
I think my title sounds like the name of a kids song - hmm, maybe it's time for a second career for me? Nah, then I'd have to give up sharing all these skin care truths. Ok, so in keeping with our Ingredient Truths series, I'm going to take you behind how our products (and others) are formulated. This week I'm talking about emulsifiers and how they keep all personal care, cosmetic and food products literally held together. [More]

Skincare News: Microbead Ban Gains Momentum

by Will / October, 28 2015 01:30
Did you know the skin care, hair care and dental products in your bathroom cupboard may be filled with tiny plastic beads? Did you know these beads are a major environmental problem? It's true, plastic microbeads are commonly added to personal care products such as face scrubs, exfoliators and even toothpaste. One bottle of face scrub can contain up to 300,000 beads according to the non-profit 5Gyres and these beads end up in our water ways where they are toxic to marine life and add to the general pollution.

Men's Skin Care: The Value of a Good Cleanser

by Will / September, 23 2015 01:30
Men often think of skin care as a women's thing or, at best, something to begrudgingly slap on after a shave. We don't dispute that after a shave a moisturizer is a real skin saver. We'd just add that a complete men's skin care routine (women's too) doesn't need to be complicated. A cleanser, some moisturizer and sunscreen are really all a guy (or gal) needs. So why a cleanser? Let's take a look. [More]

by kelly / September, 16 2015 01:30
Summer is officially over - I know it's sad. But don't worry fall is here and that means the return of pumpkin scones at Starbucks (a personal favorite of mine), football, beautiful foliage and some cooler temps. The transition from one season to another also brings about some changes in skin care. Of course some things should always remain consistent year-round (like wearing sunscreen). Below are five fall skin care tips [More]

Black Ink Tattoos, Skin Cancer and the Need for Sunscreen

by kelly / September, 9 2015 01:30
Yes my title is a lot and I'll get to explaining everything and how it all works together. Recently I happened upon some articles related to blackwork tattoos and the prevention of skin cancer that stemmed from a study completed earlier in the summer. Blackwork tattoos are tattoos that use black ink. I guess that's good about the study's findings but I don't want people to interpret this study to think it precludes you from sun protection or using sunscreen if you have blackwork tattoos. [More]

by Will / September, 2 2015 01:30
Block Island is a small place, it's just 7 miles long and 3 miles wide. Despite this it does have a bustling town with many restaurants (over 50), bars and shops. Of course, at such a small size it can't cover every cuisine and that's where New England Airline's take-out food delivery comes in. Yup, they'll deliver your take-out order via plane. Whether it's Chinese food, sushi, pizza or something else entirely, New England Airlines is game. [More]
