New no-touch packaging for creams and serums.

New no-touch packaging for creams and serums.

Theoretically one is always supposed to remove cream from a jar with a spatula. Really now though, who does this except office professionals who work with dozens of clients throughout the day?

Putting fingers into jars has never been ideal as it introduces bacteria and other undesirables into the creams that can alter consistency or shorten shelf life. This is especially troublesome when natural formulations aim to minimize emulsifiers, preservatives, and other aesthetic enhancing chemistry.Pump bottles are limited by smaller diameter delivery tubes and apertures, inhibiting the flow of formulas of higher viscosity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

creams and serums

Enter airless bottles.

Airless bottles solve the problem of fingers in the jar with "no touch" delivery of creams and serums, even those of higher viscosity. We experimented with airless bottles throughout the summer and recently have transferred the packaging of all of our jar creams to airless pump bottles for sanitary "no touch" delivery of product. One additional requirement we had for airless bottles was opacity (except for one or two of the serums) to prevent light from breaking down some of the components, which is why the new bottles are white.

Airless bottles have been available for years, but the initial costs required one to take out a second mortgage. Persistence led us to suppliers who offered opaque bottles in smaller quantities (which in the bottle world means less than 10,000 units) and we are pleased to present our products in this new system. The delivery system allows even thicker creams to flow with ease.

We hope you are as pleased as we are with these. We always welcome your feedback. If you experience difficulty, we want to know. If you like them, well, tell us this too. You continue to be helpful to us, often with detailed emails, so know that we always welcome your comments to help us improve each and every day.

Makeup and Acne: Is Your Makeup Causing Breakouts?

January 12, 2018

We’ve all dealt with breakouts or stubborn acne at some point. Especially with the added stress of the holidays behind us (overindulging in goodies) and dry winter weather, it’s not unusual for skin to go on a spotty rampage this time of year. But for some, acne seems to have taken up a permanent residence year-round, which can signal that skin-irritating beauty products may be to blame.
