Why Beard Oil is the New Cologne

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 5/26/2017 to Oils

You’ve probably seen it by now: beard oil. Your barber or salon might have it. You might see it in the wellness or beauty sections of your local supermarket. Maybe you’ve smelled it on someone during a hug. And maybe you or a man you know wears it already. But what’s all the hype about? Why would facial hair need or benefit from scented oils in it? And why not just use a cologne if you’re trying to smell good? These are all great questions, and their answers are pretty straightforward.


The Best Essential Oils for Spring Time

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 5/20/2017 to Aromatherapy

It’s finally spring! If you live in the Pacific Northwest like we do, the sun shining in a blue sky is something you look forward to for months and months. It’s the ultimate gift after enduring so much gray and rain. But even if you live somewhere where spring comes sooner than rainy Oregon, the sound of birds chirping and the sight of flowers poking through the soil to greet the warmer temperatures is still exciting. And just like those flowers are seasonal, so too can your skincare be. For some people that means switching to a lighter moisturizer while others start adding an SPF to their routine. In the midst of your seasonal private label skincare adaptations, remember that essential oils can be seasonal too!


Argan Oil vs Jojoba Oil

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 5/12/2017 to Oils

Two of the most popular oils in the private label skincare industry today are Jojoba and Argan. You can find them in everything from hair care products to body lotions and face oils. Both are touted as moisturizing oils that won’t clog pores and help keep the skin smooth and hair frizz free. We’ll admit, we like them both, and include both of them in our various private label skincare offerings. When sourced responsibly and used appropriately, each oil provides noticeable benefits. But are these two oils actually equal? Or does one come out on top?

Indeed, the two go hand in hand as the hair mask works towards the happiness of your hair while you kick back and relax for 20 minutes.

The Five Best Ingredients For Hair Masks

Posted by Rainshadow Labs on 9/22/2016 to Hair Care
Hair masks are so fun. They’re a great way to spend a night at home, or as a do ahead treatment before a special event when you want your hair to really shine. You can buy many good ones that have been pre-made for you, or you can make your own in the comfort of your own home. Many times not only is this a more fun and creative way to do a hair mask, but it actually can turn out to be cheaper, too. While there are no rules for making a hair mask and plenty of good private label skincare ingredients to choose from, here are five of what we consider to be the best ingredients for making a hair mask:

Flaky Scalp Fixes

And wearing black? Forget it. While it can feel frustrating and like you’re constantly searching for a solution, there are some simple things you can do right now to try and minimize the itching and flaking on your scalp. Everyone is different and as a result what works for you might not work for someone else.

Does Natural Really Matter?

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 9/1/2015 to Cosmetics
Though 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.

You also probably know the value of doing regular masks to deliver some extra skin loving nutrition into your well cared for face. But did you know that these same principles apply to your hair?

Best Natural Hair Care Ingredients

Many personal hygiene and cleaning products can be sources of harmful chemicals in our environment, and hair care products are some of the worst offenders. The harsh chemicals found in many commercial hair care products can cause skin irritations and allergic reactions in addition to stripping the hair of its natural nutrients and oils. Sulfates, parabens, alcohol and synthetic fragrances are just a few of the damaging ingredients commonly found in hair care products. Instead of relying on these synthetic ingredients, look for hair care products that contain natural and organic ingredients to care for your hair in a natural way, leaving it as healthy and beautiful as possible.
