Healthy Environment

Did you know Paradise Skin Products is eco friendly beauty from the inside out.  Our products are chemical free with no parabens or fillers that can cause a diverse affect on our eco system.  We even practice selective harvesting in our ingredients.  If a natural ingredient that we use is being over harvested we then find another source to ensure our next generation of children will be able to enjoy that particular natural element.

We have recently switch to more environmentally friendly packaging.  We previously used blue glass, which was more difficult for our customers to find recycling facilities for.  Now we utilize white recyclable materials that are not only much easier to recycle, but are also rated by the FDA to have 0% chemical leakage.

All these steps that we have taken allow for a more effective product on the skin as well as being more environmentally conscience.

Effective Ingredient Delivery

Spin Trap™ is an effective delivery system transporting nutrients throughout the skin, as well as an anti-oxidant derived from nitrogen.  Instead of destroying the rogue oxygen, it creates a barrier (a trap) that captures the spinning free radicals and escorts them back into the respiratory cycle where they can be utilized. "Researchers have found the traps prevent free radicals from moving place to place and damaging cells"(American Academy of Dermatology).  Patricia Farris, MD, a Dermatologist and Clinical Assistant Professor at Tulane University School of Medicine states "Spin Traps will be emerging as a new technology in the war on aging." It increases the benefits and concentration levels of Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) and compliments other anti-aging treatments such as alpha hydroxy acids.   Independent Scientific Studies show Spin Trap™ as being used in anti-aging products to target free radical damage and it protects skin cells from oxidant cell injury.

This ingredient can be found in Conditioning Toner, Sugar N Spice Toner, Peaches N Cream Moisturizer, Marine EGF, Soothing Serum, and Soothing Lotion.

Benefits of Fullersomes Delivery System

Fullersomes™ is a transport system that helps nutrients absorb into the skin.  This ingredient allows other beneficial ingredients to successfully reach their destination.  It doesn't matter how amazing an ingredient is; if it cannot get to the area it needs to be to correct then it will be useless.  This ingredient is a high-powered antioxidant that forms the only natural carbon the body can use.  This carbon forms a spherical cage around rogue oxygen species and reinstalls them on their proper pathways.  More importantly, natural carbon feeds the whole carbon infrastructure of the body and these are the all-important pathways along which oxygen moves and within which the body safely utilizes oxygen.  A healthy carbon network means oxygen will not turn into free radicals!

In 1996 The Space Division, NASA, at Ames Research Center in Science conducted studies on Fullersomes™.  NASA concluded the Fullersomes™ transport system is one million to ten million times smaller than Liposomes, resulting in their delivery system being more efficient and the penetration more effective.

This ingredient can be found in Beautiful Eyes, Marine EGF, and Peaches N Cream Moisturizer.

Extra Boost of Hydration for Dry Winter Months

One of the most effective approaches to banishing dry skin is by including a particular ingredient called Hyaluronic Acid (scientifically known as L-sodium Hyaluronate) into your skin care regimen.  This ingredient naturally resides in the body and can pull in over 1,000 times it’s weight in water.  This allows your skin to naturally and effectively hydrate continuously throughout the day as opposed to just when you apply your moisturizer.  As an added bonus, Hyaluronic Acid is known to help fill fine lines and wrinkles, which will give your skin a more smooth texture.

A Natural Balance of Oil – Moisturize!

There are many who walk amongst us that have oily skin, but also have an underlying issue with dryness.  How can this be possible?  There are several reasons, but one of the most common problems we see are people using strong products on their skin in hopes to reduce oil.  These stronger products can range from acne type regimens all the way to the anti-aging variety (benzyol peroxide, Retin A, hydroquinone; just to name a few) .  When these forms of skin care are used people must always use a moisturizer in order to stabilize a healthy balance of oil production and reduce inflammation.  When skin receives constant oil stripping ingredients, it naturally tells the oily production cells that it needs to increase production of oil thus causing more oil on the face.  It is a vicious cycle that will continue until a moisturizer is used.  A good balance of the skin can take a few weeks to reach it’s normal, healthy state of oil control.  If you think you have oily and dry skin look for moisturizers that are extra light and are specifically made for oily skin.

The Difficulties of Avoiding Chemicals

There are many different chemical preservatives called parabens and are often seen listed as methylparaben, propylparaben, isoparaben, and butylparaben.

All U.S. cosmetics and personal care products are required to have a list of ingredients placed in order of their relative quantity.  However, any ingredient used in fragrances or mixtures that are considered trade secrets are exempt from these requirements. Phthalates are frequently components of fragrance, which often contain dozens of chemicals.  The entire mixture simply appears as “fragrance” on the ingredients list. Thus, reading labels cannot assure there are no phthalates in a product.

In May 2002, a coalition of environmental and public health organizations contracted with a major national laboratory to test 72 brand-name, off-the-shelf beauty products for the presence of phthalates. The majority of the products tested contained phthalates, yet none of them included phthalates on their ingredients list.

This fragrance and trade secret loophole gives consumers little power to avoid phthalates when purchasing their personal care products.

What's the Big Deal?

What’s the big deal about having something Chiral Correct? In the 1950s, many pregnant women taking the drug Thalidomide for “morning sickness” gave birth to babies with severe birth defects. It was later discovered that while the chiral version of this drug curbed the morning sickness and did no harm the to the babies, whereas the non-chiral version of the drug actually caused devastating birth defects.  Another example is the more commonly known drug Allegra.  It’s manufacturer decided to cut costs making Allegra’s sibling Seldane.  This product was introduced in 1985 and by 1990 the FDA began seeing a dramatic increase of toxicity in the heart causing fatal reactions.  Seldane was pulled from shelves while the chiral correct Allegra made it's final and permanent appearance.  When this technology is used in skin care a person can receive a stronger dosage of an ingredient without the irritation.  For example, someone who gets irritated from a 5% Vitamin C will most likely not have issues with Paradise Skin Product’s 20% Vitamin C product.  This allows customers to receive optimal benefits of vitamins and peptides without negative side effects.
