Why Product Bundles Rock!

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 2/27/2017 to Skin Care

Have you ever been gifted or purchased a product bundle before? Perhaps they might seem a little unnecessary or excessive to you. For some people, a bundle just seems like too much. Who needs all this stuff? However, usually what happens is that you end up buying all (or most) of the products that were in the bundle to begin with, only you just end up buying them from different brands or at different times. If you don’t think of yourself as a product bundle fan, let us take a minute to show you all the ways that product bundles rock. You just might find yourself to be a convert by the end of the list.

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 2/25/2017 to Skin Care

Blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, pustules, blemishes- what is up with all the different names we have for zits? Are there really that many different kinds? And how do you know which one(s) you have? Also, do different kinds require different care? All of these questions are totally normal and we’re here to answer them for good! Some words are used for everything, while others actually do refer to one specific kind of “zit”.  But first: why is it called a blackhead?

The Best Skincare Products for Men

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 2/16/2017 to Skin Care

When it comes to men, sometimes they get the value of private label skincare products, and sometimes they don’t. One man can have a daily grooming routine complete with his favorite skincare product, while another can barely muster the desire to apply some chapstick. Though culturally it’s more accepted for women to pay attention to the health of their skin, the reality is that men need good skincare too! All of us could use some extra care and protection when it comes to our skin and the aging process. We don’t all have to use the same products or like the same scents, but all of us benefit from regular use of high integrity private label skincare products. Here’s what we recommend for the men folk:

Peppermint Vanilla: The Best Body Scrub Flavor

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 2/13/2017 to Skin Care

Do you use a body scrub? What’s it made out of? Is it thick and hydrating, or extra scrubby and perfect for when you really need a good scrub down? And perhaps most important of all, what does it smell like? See the thing is, when it comes to private label body care products, they either smell terribly artificial, or really really good; it can be hard to find a middle ground. Thankfully, there are products that exist that don’t use strong artificial smells but instead utilize the clear, pure and even beneficial for your skin aromas of essential oils. There are many to choose from, from individual flavors featuring a single oil to a blend that utilizes the various notes of multiple essential oils. While we like the whole array of oils, we will admit that we do have a favorite blend to use in body scrubs.

Essential Oil Quality: Your Nose Knows

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 2/9/2017 to Skin Care
When it comes to essential oils, your nose knows. Your nose knows if the smell is fake. It knows if something has been adulterated. It knows if something has gone off or just isn’t right. And in a world where more and more things are being cut and substituted and faked, it’s a good thing your nose has got your back! But what about if you just don’t know what to look for when you smell an essential oil? Perhaps you’re new to all this, or perhaps there are just so many different brands and companies to choose from that you feel a little overwhelmed. Whatever the case for you, here are a few other pointers to help you determine the quality of an essential oil when you’re not quite sure what your nose is trying to tell you.

The Best Plant Sources of Vitamin C for Your Skin

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 2/7/2017 to Skin Care

Vitamin C is a private label skincare powerhouse that works for young and aging skin alike. It helps to protect against and repair the negative effects of photo aging, which is something we all need to be aware of. Why? Because the causes are everywhere! Pollution, sunlight and even harsh and extreme weather all contribute to photo aging which manifests itself in the skin as fine lines, collagen loss and sagging. Vitamin C combats all of that by protecting against the free radicals generated by exposure to the various sources of photo aging, and by increasing the skin’s production of collagen. You can find vitamin C in your private label skincare in a number of different forms, and basically all of them come from plants. Here are some of the best:

MSM: The Private Label Skincare Staple

Posted by Rainshadow Labs on 9/7/2016 to Private Label Skin Care
There is most definitely a group of private label skincare staples that deliver time and time again, no matter what. These are the ingredients that you will find occurring over and over again in ingredient decks because of their essential nature. Some of them are superstars at keeping formulas properly blended, others are expert natural preservatives, and others still show up time and again because your skin loves them so much. MSM is one of those ingredients. Your skin loves MSM, and MSM loves your skin. The two love each other so much, in fact, that MSM is an essential building block for the very structure of your skin.

The Best Private Label Combos

It’s really nice to have one private label skincare product that does multiple things: a serum that also moisturizes, a cleanser that also exfoliates, a night cream that also has AHA’s- these are all great and make it that much easier to have an effective skincare regimen because you don’t have to worry about having a different product for each one of your needs. Sometimes, however, one product just isn’t enough. And that’s where dynamic private label skincare duos come into play. Think of them as the necessary and effective one-two- punch of your skincare ritual.

Now that it’s the season of sunshine and playing outside, sunburn is something that hopefully all of us are keeping in our awareness as something to prevent and protect against. Depending on your level of regular sun exposure and skin tone you may or may not be particularly worried about getting burned. However, whether or not you actually get a sunburn, your skin can still benefit from post sun exposure care to calm, soothe and nourish. Though you can no doubt go out and buy a pre made private label product to do this, you don’t need to. All you do need is one, or two, high quality ingredients to keep your skin happy post sun exposure.

Culinary Herbs Used in Private Label Skincare

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 5/18/2016 to Private Label Skin Care
When you think of your skincare, do you also think of food? Probably not. Private label skincare is for your face and food is for eating, right? Yes and no. While you can’t necessarily eat all of your private label skincare, there are some culinary herbs that are used in the skincare world because of their benefits. Though the applications are not the same, the actual plants are. And far from being exotic, you may be surprised to learn that these same herbs are ones you use all the time in your cooking.

Are Wild Crafted Plants Better?

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 5/5/2016 to Private Label Skin Care


The most obvious difference between wild crafted and cultivated plants is that one grows in the wild and one does not. Wild crafting usually requires someone to actually go out and collect the plant from outside of a garden, while a cultivated plant is just that- cultivated in a garden. One of the main benefits of choosing to use ethically wild crafted private label skincare ingredients when possible is that plants growing in the wild have to be stronger than plants that are cultivated in a garden. This is because they do not have a gardener to water, fertilize and otherwise protect them from the elements, so they must be strong enough to survive outside of the care of humans. This strength can translate into a higher concentration of beneficial properties within the plant, which can make it more valuable when used in your skincare routine.

colorful raspberriesHave you ever marveled at the vividness of a summer flower? Or the insanely dark pigment of a blackberry? How about the brightness of a lemon, or even the simple yet rich hue of green in sweet spring grass? All of these things have one thing in common: antioxidants. Though color pigments are made up of more than just one thing, one thing they do all contain are antioxidants. In fact, a great way to tell if something, be it a food or private label skincare ingredient, is full of antioxidants is to look at its color. In short, if you want antioxidant rich skincare, then make it colorful.

And along with that outside bite goes the extra dryness you might have been experiencing during the winter.
