healthy winter skinSkincare in the winter can be entirely different from skincare in the summer. Harsh cold, lack of sun and biting winds create the perfect storm for skin to become dry, cracked and worn. It’s a time of year where the heavier moisturizers come out and are used as much for their deep moisturizing properties as for the protective shield they provide on the face. And while there are plenty of pre-made private label skincare options for winter, why not get a little crafty and make a winter proof moisture cream by hand?

Have you ever diffused an essential oil before? Most diffusers use water as the medium for getting the essential oil out into the air for fragrant smells and aroma therapeutic benefits. Diffusing is a great way to utilize essential oils, and they make it so that the entire household can benefit from just a few drops. But did you know that there is another way to get essential oils out into the air? It’s called a nebulizer, and though less commonly used throughout the every day household, a nebulizer is another very effective way of getting the aroma therapeutic benefits essential oils have to offer.

Does Natural Really Matter?

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 9/1/2015 to Soaps
natural productsThough they are not necessarily more expensive than “regular” private label skincare products, the question may still pop up in your head every once in a while: does natural really matter? Is organic that important? What’s the difference anyway, and is it tangible in the products? These are all great questions, and the answer to every single one of them is, yes. Natural does matter. It matters for results, product quality and environmental integrity. It also allows for a wealth of creative material because of the bounty nature produces. In short, it allows for better private label skincare products.

And while making sure you cover up and even apply some natural sunscreen in order to prevent getting sunburned are good practices to have, there are also private label carrier oils you can use to help your skin stay protected from the sun. Though not exactly the same as putting on sunscreen, this is an important part of having healthy skin that knows how to better repair and protect itself. And best of all, you probably already have or use at least one of these oils.
