Here is what we've heard. You wash the hair, shave the beard and clean the body with the same shampoo/soap. Whether you like a quickie shower or a lingering one, the soap does the job. You are clean and the hair and skin feels amazing.  The ESP is the favourite, but you also like the fresh clean scent of the Regular Bar. And most interesting, the Basic Bar is the creamiest, the black Charcoal the...

It is time to venture outdoors, safely. We know the new rules: moose distance, mask handy, wash, wash and wash again. We can do that. But do not forget the Zinc. Summer and Zinc are synonymous. Zinc is protection against the sun. I have written often about this important topic and as I do not always agree with the methods of protection offered out there, I do love zinc. An important excerpt from...

Salmon, kale, eggs, tuna. All high in Retinol. Cheese. Liver, Cod, Squash. All high in retinol. Aka Vitamin A, an essential. When consuming fatty acids, we also consume the fat-soluble vitamins, like retinol. Our skin needs it. Today, with Covid precautions that dictate recommended products on the skin, we need all the help we can get. Since time began, oils containing natural retinol, have been...

“Is This Product ‘Dermatologist Tested’?” An understandable query for one who is trying to make sure the product is ‘approved’ by people in the know. BUT, if the true nature of the question was really understood, there would be no question. Because both question and answer mean nothing. Seeing the term ‘dermatologist tested’ on a label or in advertising should actually reduce the product’s...

Covid Hands. Dry, raw, red, cracked, sometimes bleeding. Many people suffering terribly. Sanitizing with alcohol based cleansers and or wearing gloves for hours on end are heroic deeds executed by heroes. I received this testimonial from Danette. I do not know where she lives. I do not know what job it is that requires her husband to wear gloves all day long. Perhaps he is a postal worker, a...

We could all use a breath of fresh air. The other day we received one in the form of an email,  a happy, light spirited, sincere testimonial saying how much she loved us and thanking us for doing what we do. Perhaps Sabrina is at home. Perhaps she is ‘catching up’ on things she had meant to do and never got around to. Whatever the reason she decided to write to us now, it brought many smiles to...

With Covid-19, soap is even more of a necessity. Handwashing for 20 seconds or longer is not an easy feat. One trick is to sing Happy Birthday to yourself twice while enjoying the lather. Choosing what soap to wash with should be a huge consideration. I have taken excerpts from an article I wrote last year.  Soap or detergent? Liquid or Bar?  It is a good time to highlight the pertinent points...

New rules. Stay home when you can. Separate. Sanitize. Wash often, no less that 20 seconds. Not as easy as it sounds, so best to find a repertoire of fav songs to help master the task. Anything less than 20 seconds, not wise..How are your hands BTW?  Raw. Dry. Red. The Purells are deemed necessary, but they are harsh. Our hands are taking a hit. We need more creams, lotions, moisturizing butters...
