We provided you with many facts that many bath and body
companies don't want you to know.
|THE SINGLE INGREDIENT FACT
SKIN CARE COMPANIES DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT
In the US, some companies
alter their Shea Butter in an attempt to give it a better fragrance and
texture. Unaltered Shea Butter has a natural, pungent aroma. Others
alter Shea Butter for economic reasons. These alterations may disturb or
in some cases destroy the natural integrity of the product. While
altered Shea Butter may smell nicely, or when mixed with less expensive
ingredients may cost much less, in many of such cases the altered Shea
Butter has lost significant properties. Another problem the buyer must
watch for is the age of the product. Shea Butter could be as much as two
to three years old or older by the time it reaches the buyer's hand.
This is why our shea butter is sold in small quantities.
100% Pure & Natural Shea
Butter is an all-natural vitamin A cream. Shea Butter has shown to be a
superb moisturizer, with exceptional healing properties for the skin.
There now is a growing list of skin conditions where 100% Premium Shea
Butter has been shown to be effective. Vitamin A in Shea Butter is
important for improving a number of skins conditions, including
blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, and dermatitis. Additionally, Premium Shea
Butter cream has properties that treat skin allergies, insect bites,
sunburns, frostbites, and a number of other conditions of the skin. Shea
Butter’s unparalleled moisturizing property is due to several natural
moisturizers present in the cream. The moisturizers in Shea Butter are
the same moisturizers produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin.
| Dead Sea Salt
Dead Sea is known not only for the saltiest water, but also is the
lowest point on Earth. It has a higher concentration of salts and
minerals (approximately 9 times the amount) with a smaller proportion of
sodium chloride (regular salt) than other salt water. The salt from the
Dead Sea consists of sodium chloride, magnesium, potassium and calcium
chlorides and a comparatively high concentration of bromides. It is
believed that the therapeutic properties of these salts are due to the
presence of these and other components. The salts are composed of
natural hygroscopic minerals found in the Dead Sea. Magnesium is
important for combating stress and fluid retention, slowing skin aging
and calming the nervous system. Calcium is effective at preventing water
retention, increasing circulation and strengthening bones and nails.
Potassium energizes the body, helps to balance skin moisture and is a
crucial mineral to replenish following intense exercise. Bromides act to
ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles. Sodium is important for the
lymphatic fluid balance (this in turn is important for immune system
function). So we can see that bathing in high quality sea salt could
replenish the minerals which are critical to our skin metabolism. These
minerals assist in cleansing, de-toxing and restoring a healthy body,
especially the skin and muscles. Throughout the ages, dating as far back
as the reign of Cleopatra, the Dead Sea has been renowned and revered
for its power to heal, rejuvenate, and beautify. Physiological benefits
from using these salts include; helps detoxify the body and ward off
viruses, stimulates natural circulation for improved health, helps
relieve athlete's foot, corns, calluses, relaxes tense, aching muscles
and joints, helps relieve arthritis and rheumatism, and helps relieve
chronic lower back pain. Skin benefits are; draws out impurities in
skin, soothes skin irritations such as psoriasis and eczema, soothes
itching, burning and bites, smoothes and softens skin, encourages skin
to renew itself, helps scars to heal, restores moisture balance to the
skin. Psycho-physical relief includes; provides deep relaxation, helps
relieve stress and tension, promotes restfulness. Occupational benefits
are; relieves tired, aching feet and leg muscles, eases tension in hands
and wrists, helps relieve sports injuries.
is oddly enough the main ingredient in most commercially available baby
oils. One well known manufacture of baby products has been forced by
legislation to make their bottles tamper resistant after a 18 month old
baby died from baby oil. The baby opened the bottle and the oil ended up
all over the baby. The bad news was, they only had to make the bottle
tamper resistant but it's still mineral oil!! Mineral Oil coats
the skin and hair just like plastic wrap. The skin's natural barrier is
disrupted as this plastic coating inhibits its ability to breathe and
absorb the Natural Moisture Factor (moisture and nutrition). The skin's
ability to release toxins and wastes is impossible through this "plastic
wrap," which can promote acne and other disorders. It further hinders
normal skin respiration/transpiration by keeping oxygen out. This
process slows down skin function and normal cell development causing the
skin to prematurely age. Holding in large a mounts of moisture in the
skin can "flood" the biology and may result in immature, unhealthy,
sensitive skin that dries out easily. Petrolatum exhibits many of the
same potentially harmful properties as mineral oil.
|Crèma Fiorè Bath & Body
products are made with both essential oils and fragrance oils.
Essential Oils - A
liquid that is generally distilled (most frequently by steam or water)
from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a
plant. Most essential oils are clear, but some oils such as patchouli
and sweet orange are amber or yellow in color. Essential oils contain
the true essence of the plant it was derived from and offer therapeutic
benefits. Essential oils are highly concentrated and a little goes a
long way. Many essential oils, such as Rose and Jasmine, can cost $1000
or more for a pound of oil.
Always check the
individual oils for adverse reactions from a reputable source,
especially if pregnant, epileptic, have kidney or liver disease, asthma,
high blood pressure, or sensitive skin. Not all oils are safe for
children and babies.
Oils - Fragrance oils are synthetically created fragrances and do
not offer the therapeutic benefits that essential oils offer. There are
thousands of raw ingredients that can be used to make up fragrance
oils. Any scent in nature can often be mimicked or an entirely new
scent can be developed. Fragrance oils provide a much wider range of
scent selection than essential oils and a much more affordable price.
Crèma Fiorè Bath & Body
offers ½ ounce bottles of pure essential oils and fragrances oils for
use in oil warmers and refreshing smelly jelly’s. Customers purchasing
these oils need to know about oil safety and use:
- Always keep the container clearly
- Keep out of the reach
of pets and children
- Store in cool dark places
- Essential Oils are highly
- Never use undiluted oils on
- Be careful
with all oils on fabric, carpet or furniture
Fiorè Bath and Body makes no claim to be hypoallergenic. The following
information is from the FDA website: Hypoallergenic cosmetics are
products that manufacturers claim produce fewer allergic reactions than
other cosmetic products. Consumers with hypersensitive skin, and even
those with "normal" skin, may be led to believe that these products will
be gentler to their skin than non-hypoallergenic cosmetics”.
are no Federal standards or definitions that govern the use of the term
"hypoallergenic." The term means whatever a particular company wants it
to mean. Manufacturers of cosmetics labeled as hypoallergenic are not
required to submit substantiation of their hypoallergenic claims to FDA.
"hypoallergenic" may have considerable market value in promoting
cosmetic products to consumers on a retail basis, but dermatologists say
it has very little meaning.
years, companies have been producing products which they claim are
"hypoallergenic" or "safe for sensitive skin" or "allergy tested." These
statements imply that the products making the claims are less likely to
cause allergic reactions than competing products. But there has been no
assurance to consumers that this actually was the case.
Consumers concerned about allergic reactions from cosmetics should
understand one basic fact: there is no such thing as a "nonallergenic"
cosmetic--that is, a cosmetic that can be guaranteed never to produce an
By and large, the basic ingredients in
so-called "hypoallergenic" cosmetics are the same as those used in other
cosmetics sold for the same purposes. Years ago, some cosmetics
contained harsh ingredients that had a high potential for causing
adverse reactions. But these ingredients are no longer used. The FDA
knows of no scientific studies which shows that "hypoallergenic"
cosmetics or products making similar claims actually cause fewer adverse
reactions than competing conventional products.
Bath & Body uses many natural ingredients in our products but we do not
claim to have a complete line of “All Natural” products. Crèma Fiorè
Bath & Body does not want to mislead our customers, we want to educate
skincare product manufacturer seems to have their OWN definition of the
word “Natural” and it's generally misleading. "Natural" is a powerful
marketing word, but may indeed be a word that cannot be totally
defined. Just because something is "natural", does not necessarily mean
that it is safe or recommended for use. Many “Natural” essential oils
carry risks and dangers and should never be used. Some should be
avoided during pregnancy, some by those who suffer epilepsy, and some
can be harsh skin-irritants if used in excess. Any skin care product
that contains both oils and water (i.e. lotions & creams) MUST contain
a preservative to eliminate the risk of bacteria growth. Any product
containing a preservative is not a “Natural” product due to the fact
that there is no such thing as a “Natural” preservative regardless of
what you’ve heard. Many companies advertise that they preserve their
products with Grapefruit Seed Extract but no documented evidence has
ever been proven that Grapefruit Seed Extract will kill bacteria.
Anyone using “natural” oil and water products (i.e. lotions and creams)
must consider the consequences of a potentially unsafe product. These
can be remedied by the inclusion of necessary ingredients for
preservation. Any products that contain fragrance oils are not “All
Natural”. Fragrance oils are man made synthetic oils.
100 years ago people died from simple illnesses that today we have
medicine for through chemical research and un-natural products.
This leaves consumers in the position
of needing to read and understand labels, and choose for themselves what
they determine is a level of "naturalness" or otherwise that they feel
most comfortable with.
Crèma Fiorè Bath and Body Products are
labeled in accordance to FDA rules. Ingredients are listed in
descending order of predominance, that is, with the ingredient in the
greatest amount listed at the beginning and those in the smallest
amounts listed at the end. A lotion with an ingredient close to the
beginning of the list, for example, would have more of that ingredient
than any other ingredient. An ingredient listed close to the end
suggests that a smaller amount of that ingredient is present.
A highly used marketing technique by many
manufacturers is to advertise a product by a particular ingredient
regardless of the amount of the ingredient in the product. For
example, a major manufacturers advertise a Shea Butter Cream, but if the
customer looks at the ingredient list, shea butter is one of the last
ingredients listed. Typically there is not enough of the ingredient to
benefit the skin. This is a completely legal marketing strategy that is
widely used and many consumers fall for this marketing trap. Most
consumers don’t pay attention to the ingredient label but base their
purchases on company advertising. Crèma Fiorè Bath and Body doesn’t use
this marketing technique. If we advertise a product based on an
ingredient, the customer is going to get a huge amount of that
ingredient in the product.
Ingredients are written in the language
of chemistry, not common names to provide consistency in the cosmetic
industry. For example, Baking Soda would be listed as Sodium
Bicarbonate. This can be very confusing for consumer trying to figure
out what is in a product.
