OUR CREAM IS REALLY RICH!
That’s because we don’t adulterate it with the waxes that make up the cream base. As a manufacturer we feel that almost all creams use way more wax than is needed as it is the least expensive ingredient in the product. The problem is that most creams and lotions don’t penetrate through the exterior dead skin into the healthy skin, and worse, they leave a film that traps bacteria and diminishes the ability for skin to breathe. And while being manufactured preservatives are included in the formulations like alcohol that are contradictory to the product in that they contribute to dehydration rather than to hydration. Mathematically we use only as much vegetable emulsifying wax as is needed to create the emulsion and not beyond. Vitamin C & E Hydrating Cream is a 12 ounce jar of cream that is trapped in a 2 ounce jar, no fillers .And we don’t have any ingredients in our factory that are classified as preservatives. We use a combination of the strongest antioxidants we can find and in the right proportions to preserve our products, the best part of which is that they are great for the health of skin and hair and contribute to hydration.
THE TELLURIDE STORY
A few years ago after a long and busy summer we headed to Topsail Island NC for a week of recovery in late August en route to the west coast for marketing, the first stop Telluride Colorado. We had scheduled meetings in early September to avoid having to navigate the difficult roads heading into Telluride with any potential of frozen precipitation but to our surprise it was snowing as we reached our destination. We entered our hotel where I looked in the bathroom mirror as I was placing the toiletry bag on the counter and was more than a little startled at the condition of the skin on my face. I guess it was the contrast of having been in the super hydrated climate of Topsail and then entering the dry conditions of the New Mexico dessert and then the chill in the mountains but my face was covered in flaky dead skin, similar to extreme dandruff. I kept spraying my face with Save Your Skin which for me is all I ever need to maintain hydration but it was doing nothing to alleviate the problem. I was a little concerned with an important meeting scheduled for the next morning and I knew that if I couldn’t fix the problem it wasn’t going to go well. Out of desperation I sprayed one of my cupped hands one inch away with Save Your Skin and a puddle of the solution formed in which I mixed a dab of our cream which dissolved into the puddle instantly and I applied it to my face which responded instantly. I figured it would wear off by morning but at least I had a solution that would get me through the meetings of the day. When I woke the next morning my face was completely healed. We like to use the cream all year on our whole body and by adulterating the cream in the Save Your Skin we can more easily spread it over large areas like arms and legs and also use it where we have more sensitive skin like the eye area. A little goes a long way.
YOU SHOULD KNOW•••Some people with a particular skin type experience heat on their face and even redness when using the cream. This is not an allergic reaction but is more a sensitivity to the natural alpha-hydroxy acids found in Vitamin C which is a component found naturally in Rose Hip extract. If it gets too hot just spray with Save Your Skin to calm it down and dilute the cream with Save Your Skin for future use.
AND•••Since we do not use actual preservatives in our products our cream can’t withstand the assault that actual preservatives can. To that end please only use clean hands when removing cream from the jar and don’t subject the jar to extremes in temperatures or it will begin to fall out of its emulsified state.
