(NaturalNews) The world of conventional body care products is filled with gimmickry. Products that claim to be "natural" or even "organic" on the front label are often not. And some of the chemical toxins that go into conventional body care products would make your head spin if you really knew what they were. (Yes, even on "baby" products...)
Thank goodness for natural body care products. There are lots of really good natural brands to choose from: Dr Bronner's soaps, Lluvia skin care from the Amazon Herb Company, and even some of the MSM lotions we've offered through our own store in the past. There are many more, too, that you can find in Whole Foods and other natural product retailers. The Organic Consumers Association sponsor page is a pretty good collection of honest companies: http://www.organicconsumers.org/sponsors/ind...
Today, however, I'm going to introduce you to a new line of skin care products that I think will challenge the very best the industry has to offer: Annmarie Gianni's skin care line created by Annmarie Gianni -- yes, the super fit and super healthy partner of Kevin Gianni, one of the top educators in the natural health world and the creator of The Renegade Health Show (www.RenegadeHealth.com).
Annmarie's skin care line is truly one of the most impressively formulated natural product lines I've ever had the joy to discover. Her skin care product line includes:
• Aloe-Herb Cleanser • Ayurvedic Facial Scrub • Neroli Toning Mist • Coconut Honey Mask • Coconut Body & Face Oil • Anti-Aging Serum • Anti-Aging Facial Oil • Herbal Facial Oil for Normal and Combination Skin
Learn more about these products right here: http://www.annmariegianni.com/natural-skin-c.... Below, I list the full ingredients of what's in these products, and I can state with confidence that you are unlikely to ever find a more thoughtful and expertly-blended collection of skin-enhancing ingredients in ANY product line offered by ANY company, anywhere in the world.
Or to state it another way (in my opinion), those high-priced "brand name" skin care products sold at department stores are nothing but junk compared to Annmarie Gianni's line. There's literally no comparison once you look at the ingredients (see below) and what you get for your dollar.
• Herbal Facial Oil for Normal and Combination Skin Herb oil (grapeseed oil, life everlasting, green tea, gotu kola, rosemary, calendula, lavender, milk thistle, lemon balm, licorice root, roobibos, hibiscus, rhodiola, gingko, plantain, amla, ashwaghanda, acai, goji berry, horsetail, comfrey leaves, comfrey root, rose petal, echinacea, ginseng, lotus, boswellia, blue violet), fractionated coconut oil, oleic sunflower oil, olive oil, aloe vera oil, passion fruit oil, tamanu oil, carrot seed oil, vitamin E tocopherols, evening primrose extract, seabuckthorn berry extract, red raspberry seed oil, cranberry seed oil, rosehip extract, calendula extract, buriti fruit oil, sandalwood oil, jasmine sambac oil, bergamot oil, blue chamomile oil, rosemary oleoresin
Why try it?
Since learning about Annmarie's skin care product line, I've been asking women about their skin care products, and I was shocked to learn that most women are quite dissatisfied with their skin care products. They often end up "chasing symptoms" from one product to another. They might, for example, use one product to eliminate acne, but they find it dries their skin too much so they need a moisturizer, but the moisturizer causes some other effect requiring a third product to nourish the skin in the hope of some healing effect.
I personally don't use any skin care products on my skin (other than Dr Bronner's soap) and rely solely on inner nutrition to handle my skin health, so I wasn't aware of all these frustrations with skin care products. Of course, the real problem most women are experiencing with their skin care products is that they're putting toxic chemicals on their skin because they're buying conventional products. Such products are just loaded with nasty fragrance chemicals and sometimes even heavy metals like lead and mercury. We just posted a story recently about the alarming mercury levels discovered in skin whitening creams, to name one example. (http://www.naturalnews.com/029765_skin_white...)
Most skin care and body care products sold in the world today are truly toxic. And because of that, they actually harm your skin and lead to symptoms requiring more "treatment." In this way, the cosmetic and personal care industry works much like Big Pharma, using its products to generate repeat business by keeping people trapped in a cycle of symptoms requiring yet another product to treat.
Truly nourishing skin care products, on the other hand, encourage your skin to heal. They provide nutrients, not synthetic chemicals, and they actually bathe your skin in health-supporting ingredients that result in visibly healthier looking skin. It's no secret that nutrition works for skin health just as it does for total body health.
That's why I have really come to appreciate the care and wisdom that Annmarie and Kevin Gianni put into this truly impressive line of skin care products. It's rare in this industry to find anyone so dedicated to high-integrity product formulations. It's even rarer to find a small company like this led by two people who are, themselves, consistently maintaining their own vibrant health by practicing what they preach. Yep, Kevin and Annmarie Gianni are among the healthiest people you'll ever meet. They juice, they take superfood supplements and they use their own products. No wonder they look so great!
If you appreciate the value of quality products -- and you respect your own skin -- I think you'll really enjoy Annmarie's skin care product line. It's among the very best made anywhere in the world... by anyone! I give it a five-star rating and would openly recommend it to family and friends. It's one of those rare skin care product lines that's definitely "Health Ranger approved."
