Unilever is proud to introduce the UK's number one facial skin care brand* to the US with the launch of Simple, the sensitive skin experts. The brand's debut in the United States and Canada is marked by the unveiling of 13 facial skincare items, making it the only mass facial skin care line specifically for those with sensitive skin.

Simple is a brand with over 50 years of heritage in the UK. Fifty-eight percent of women have sensitive skin, and many who suffer from the condition are not satisfied with their skin care products. Irritants, harsh chemicals and fragrances found in many skincare products can contribute to skin sensitivities. Simple, suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin, understands that what is left out is equally as important as what is put in to the product. The line, including cleansers, moisturizers, eye care products and wipes, delivers effective, yet gentle, skincare with no dyes, artificial perfumes or harsh irritants that can upset the skin, just pure, skin-loving ingredients with added vitamins.

Simple is supporting the launch with a full marketing plan including TV, print, digital, PR and social media -- to ensure a successful introduction and widen the offerings for women with sensitive skin. The brand, in collaboration with Arnold Worldwide, Mindshare, Siren Public Relations and Weber Shandwick, will assert its philosophy through a robust marketing campaign appealing to women in new and breakthrough ways.

"Simple will further strengthen Unilever's skincare portfolio and fill a void that currently exists in the mass skincare market," said Alison Clark, Brand Building Director, Unilever US, Skincare. "Sensitive skin is a concern for so many women, yet somehow an overlooked category within the industry. We are confident that American women will embrace Simple -- this iconic UK brand with years of history, and we look forward to delivering on the promise of effective, yet gentle skincare for sensitive skin." ...........View the original article here

Pantothen is a perfectly natural and safe way to fight acne and is an excellent skin care product. It works wonderfully for the great majority of users, with no side effects whatsoever.

MyReviewsNow Ship At Home showcases the Pantothen skin care acne fighting system. People have been looking for ways to fight acne for centuries. Most of the skin care products used to combat this scourge have been hit-and-miss at best. Creams and lotions are messy, and tend to dry out the skin. Other treatments have side effects, some of them fairly severe. The Pantothen skin care system is a natural way to fight acne without creams and lotions.

What's Acne?
Acne vulgaris, the type that most people have, begins in the pores of the skin, which are usually made up of a hair follicle and the sebaceous glands. These glands produce sebum, which is a mix of oil and waxes that lubricates the skin and prevents it from drying out. Sometimes the skin pores can be blocked by dirt, dead skin cells, bacteria, and sebum, which leads to an inflammation that manifests as a pimple. This, in turn, leads to the growth of more bacteria and more inflammation. If the growth of the bacteria and the resulting inflammation are very severe, this can result in scarring.

Some History
Pantothen is a result of the work of Dr. Hit-Hung Leung, who researched the relationship between pantothenic acid and acne. Using Pantothen is simple. It's a pill taken with water four times a day: in the morning, in the early afternoon, in the late afternoon, and in the evening. Results of this skin care regimen should be seen within one to two weeks, and most acne should be resolved within a month. Some people take Pantothen for a few months, and then never have to take it again. For other people it takes longer, but this system created to fight acne works for about 85 percent of the people who use it.

The customer can continue to use skin care creams or ointments on their acne without any adverse interactions even as they use Pantothen. Because Pantothen is made up of natural substances already found in the body, it doesn't interact with any drugs. This skin care product is also safe for teenagers and adults alike. There's also no need to visit a doctor who might prescribe expensive medications that may or may not work, or cause side effects the customer isn't prepared to live with.

How It Works
Pantothen works by using Co-enzyme A, a substance the body produces naturally. Co-enzyme A works to break down the skin oils that can cause acne, but most people don't produce enough of it to really be able to fight acne. Co-enzyme A is made out of adenine triphosphate and pantothenic acid. Since most people have a lot of adenine triphosphate, the pantothenic acid in the Pantothen binds with it to make Co-enzyme-A, which joins the Co-enzyme A found naturally in the body. This extra Co-enzyme A can then take care of the excess oil that causes acne. Moreover, Pantothen also has L-Carnitine, a compound that's a lot like a vitamin and helps to remove fat from the blood. L-carnitine also helps move oils toward the Coenzyme-A, where they can be broken down.

What's In It
When the customer reads the label on a bottle of Pantothen, they will see that other ingredients include thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12, and biotin. These vitamins are present in quantities that give the customer 100 percent of their daily value. But the formula has 2,200 mcg of pantothenic acid, which is 22,000 percent of its daily value, and 733.3 mg of L-Carnitine, whose daily value has yet to be established. When so much pantothenic acid enters the body and binds with natural adenine triphosphate, the resulting Co-enzyme A is bound to fight acne very thoroughly and satisfyingly!

Pantothen offers a 90-day guarantee that begins on the day they accept the customer's order. If the customer isn't satisfied with the product, they should return the empty bottles and their money is refunded.

Mango Madness Skin Care introduces paraben free microdermabrasion cream for home use.West Palm Beach, FL, July 15, 2011 --( Anti-aging skin care product retailer Mango Madness Skin Care, Inc. has announced a new microdermabrasion face cream for home use formulated without parabens or other harmful ingredients.

Parabens are widely used as preservatives in many consumer products but several studies have implicated them in women's health issues, including breast cancer. Scientists in Japan have also discovered that some parabens can actually accelerate skin aging in the presence of ultraviolet light.

Microdermabrasion is a popular technique used by spas and dermatologists to remove the top layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis using tiny exfoliation crystals to scrub away some of the old skin. The popularity of this technique is due not only to the resulting smoother, softer skin, but also the effects of increasing cell turnover rates. A longer term benefit is that the increased cellular activity invigorates skin cells, thereby improving skin health and helping to create new collagen. It is collagen that provides the structural support and firmness that characterize firm, taut, smooth, youthful skin.

"The benefit of microdermabrasion cream sold at the retail level is that the procedure can be performed at home without the need to schedule an expensive trip to the spa or doctor's office," explained Rob Morrison, spokesman for Mango Madness Skin Care. "The home microdermabrasion user also controls the intensity and frequency of the microdermabrasion procedures, unlike in a clinical setting. Women prefer that," he added.

In addition to being formulated without parabens, the new microdermabrasion cream contains no talc, phthalates, sulfates, formaldehyde, or other harmful ingredients. The company performs no animal testing and all ingredients are animal cruelty free.

Mango Madness Skin Care manufactures a complete line of paraben-free skin care products including hyaluronic acid based moisturizers; peptide and retinol based wrinkle creams; glycolic acid, amber based and microdermabrasion type exfoliators; a vitamin K based under eye cream; gentle skin cleansers; and a new broad spectrum sun screen. The company recently opened its newest retail store at CityPlace in West Palm Beach, Fla.

From Inner Thigh Chafing, Bra Burn and Other Skin Irritations, Athletes Find Relief From Chafing

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - Jun 28, 2011) - Chafing is literally irritating athletes all over the country and it's a subject not often discussed. EverStride, the company that produces high performance skin care products for the athletes, introduced the EverStride Anti Chafing Sports Stick and it has quickly attracted the attention of athletes looking for relief.

Athletes, doctors and athletic trainers are using the EverStride Anti Chafing Sports Stick on a daily basis to prevent chafing and prolong their training sessions. The sports stick helps prevent chafing on body parts that most athletes didn't know could chafe, not just the feet, but inner thighs, underarms and breasts. It also has been developed to prevent blisters, saddle sores, rashes and other irritants that are caused by high motion sporting activities.

"Our Anti Chafing Sports Stick has quickly become our top selling product," said Michael Gustman, President of EverStride. "Chafing is a serious issue in the sporting and fitness world and it no longer has to cut any workouts shorter. People have tried everything to prevent the irritations of chafing, but our scientists have specifically built a formula for the athlete."

The non-greasy anti chafe stick helps men and women protect their skin from the rubbing of socks, sneakers, sandals, clothing that cause red irritations while competing and training. It works in hot and humid conditions as well as extreme cold weather.

All sporting activities can cause friction on your body. A cyclist may have friction in the thigh area, the runner on his or her legs or feet; you just can't avoid this centrifugal force of nature from irritating your skin. Marathon runners, cyclists, triathletes and adventure racers depend on EverStride to help them compete and as another way to help prevent chafing. The anti chafing sports stick has all natural plant-derived triglycerides (waxes) aloe and vitamin E and comes in a convenient no-mess stick.
