Why You Should Add Some Charcoal to Your Skincare

Simply put, activated charcoal acts as a mega sponge for impurities and toxins including bacteria… chemicals… dirt… and poisons. It leaves your skin detoxed and refreshed.

In fact, activated charcoal powder can hold 1,000 times it’s weight in toxins. It’s no wonder charcoal has made its way into skincare products, especially masks.

All skin types can benefit from charcoal for a good detox, particularly those with oily skin to really absorb and detox all that extra oil and sebum. Normal skin types can certainly benefit as well, but shouldn’t overuse.

Here are two of our charcoal products in our MUAC line that you won’t want to miss:

Provide Your Skin with A Good Detoxing
Our MUAC Glow Mask is just the product to detox and decongest your pores. Great for ANY SKIN TYPE. The thermal charcoal formula within this mask activates with water to create a warming sensation, while helping to melt away debris.

The Best Face Mask for My Very Sensitive Skin
The mask effectively does what it is designed for: it unclogs the pores, without irritating the skin. I could see my face looking healthier and “glow” right from the first application of the mask. I also love the warming sensation of the activated thermal charcoal on my face. Thank you dear MUAC team for this very good product – Anissa from Mauritius
Keep Oil and Sebum at Bay
Our MUAC Blemish Busters Cleanser uses activated charcoal, along with Tea Tree oil and other fabulous ingredients, to absorb excess oil and sebum. Use it two – three times a week rotating with a gentle cleanser to maintain your skin’s natural hydration. You won’t want to over dry your skin even if it’s “oily”, as too much drying can produce more oil. A great cleanser to use in between our Blemish Busters is our Wild Oat and Honey Cleanser.  Those with oily and acneac skin should absolutely order their sample bottle asap if they haven’t tried it already.

WOW!!
I am an African-American woman with a chocolate brown complexion and combination skin. I have to say that I am so thankful that I found this website. I have been using the blemish buster cleanser and toner for the past few weeks and I have to say that my breakouts have been kept at a minimum especially in my t-zone area. This product leaves my skin feeling clean without feeling too dry. I will definitely be continuing to use this product. – Megan W from Washington DC

The “Phytic Acid Buzz” is Growing

The “Phytic Acid Buzz” is Growing

Best known for skin lightening, phytic acid serves many beneficial purposes within the skincare industry. Although the name may sound foreign compared to the more popular acids, such as glycolic and hyaluronic, the “phytic buzz” is growing.

The most popular use for phytic acid is for skin lightening. For instance, it’s extremely effective at reducing the appearance of discoloration, sun spots, and or micro-pigmentation. All the while being one of the most gentle of the acids.

This antioxidant derives from rice, grains, and bran – scientifically known as a “phytate.” When used within peels and toners, the strength varies from product to product; however, one variable remains constant… and that’s the reduction of melanin. How so? By impeding the entrance of iron and copper into the skin.

When used in conjunction with glycolic acid for instance, a phytic acid peel serves as an excellent exfoliant and skin lightener.

The NEW MUAC PhytX Peel uses the combination of phytic, glycolic, mandelic, lactic and hyaluronic acids to serve as an exfoliating, skin-tone evening, brightening, wrinkle reducing, and hydrating peel.

BellEvolve Vitamin C 20% Professional Serum

Our BellEvolve Vitamin C 20% Professional Serum is a *potent* anti aging product. This advanced formulation contains L-ascorbic acid enhanced with Vitamin E, Hyaluronic and Phytic acids. Phytic acid, derived from natural plants, is an antioxidant that helps to block new formation of melanin.

Benefits:

–Stimulate collagen synthesis
–Fades age spots
–Reduces acne and acne scars
–Defends skin against free radicals and environment damage
–Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles
–Reduces general skin discolorations
–Excellent for sun damaged skin
–This product should be a staple in your anti aging regime.

Concentration:

Maximum tissue levels are obtained at 20% L-ascorbic acid. Any amount higher or lower than 20% is not an optimal concentration. You will see some companies market their serums at 20%, however they may be using other acid combinations to achieve this level. The L-ascorbic acid in our serum is exactly 20%. Additional ingredients are enhancements to maximize effectiveness and stability.

This product does *not* need to be refrigerated. Store in a cool, dry place and away from light.

pH: Many Vitamin C preparations are not pH adjusted for optimal biologic activity and penetration. The optimal pH of an L-ascorbic acid formula is between 2.5 – 3.0. Anything higher than pH 3 can reduce the ability to penetrate efficiently and lose overall effectiveness of the vitamin. Anything lower than pH 2.5 can cause irritations and very dry skin.

Compare to Cellex C, Skinceuticals and CRX.

40% Mandelic Acid Peel

This NEW Peel Packs a Results-Punch!

NEW: 40% Mandelic Acid Peel

For those of you who’ve needed a stronger line of mandelic acid attack, we’ve got you covered. Our new 40% Mandelic Acid Peel packs a punch… so it’s NOT FOR BEGINNERS.

Mandelic Acid penetrates skin slower than other alpha hydroxides, due to a larger molecular structure… meaning a less irritating experience. Derived from bitter almonds, Mandelic acid goes to work doing the following:

–Loosens blackheads…
–Rapidly exfoliates the skin…
–Deeply cleanses and decongests pores…
–Brings antimicrobial and antibacterial properties…
–Super effective for acne sufferers…
–Inhibits the growth of melanin, meaning discoloration reappears more slowly…
–Reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles…
and can reverse sun damage upon continued use.

Additionally, those with darker skin tones don’t have to worry about this acid bleaching their natural skin tones, as other AHA’s might.

NOTE:
Only those who’ve successfully used our 25% Mandelic Acid Peel for 6-8 weeks should consider using the 40% Mandelic Acid. A beginner “peeler” must always start at the lowest strength and work up the chain slowly. We take this matter quite seriously, so always read our instructions within your peel packet.

.50 Retinol Lotion – Our Strongest Retinol Product

Our Most Powerful Strength… Yet Gentle Enough for 80 Year Olds!

A research study at the University of Michigan tested retinol lotions on 36 elderly, healthy people… most around the age of 80. After six months of applying retinol lotion on a small area on their upper arms, results showed considerable decrease in fine lines and wrinkles. However, even more interesting is how quickly effects decreased upon discontinuing use of the lotions.

Now consider the skin of the elderly for a minute…
It’s thinner. Looser. Usually dryer. If these retinol lotions can effect and improve the skin of 80 year olds, imagine what it can do for younger skin…

Mind you, our .50 retinol lotion is an advanced strength and only for those who have worked up to that level. Any “retinol rookies” need to begin with a .10% strength to ensure skin safety and minimal irritation.
