Sun Kissed Skin…without the Sun! Mon, 17 Feb 2014 22:00:22 +0000 Marlene Introducing Natural Sunless Tanning Lotion

When renowned sunbather Jennifer Aniston confesses her skin is starting to show damage from the skin and is moving to sunless alternatives for maintaining a healthy glow to her skin, you know your clientele is not far to follow!

Which is why we are happy to introduce our natural based Sunless Tanning Lotion, a great addition to the Pravada Natural and Organic Private Label Skin Care product line. This high quality Sunless Tanning Lotion includes Vitamin E, Shea Butter and natural oils. It goes on evenly, absorbs quickly, is non-staining and give results in as little as 4 hours. Stays for up to a week with a single application. Feedback on this product has been outstanding!

Just a few tips to remind your clients when using sunless tanning lotions:

Applying self tanning lotions take practice, but if you follow these suggestions and add a little patience, applying the self tanning lotion will be easier and sunless tans will be streak-free.

1. Exfoliate for a few days before application.

This is really the most important prep step for sunless tanning.  Skin needs to be shed of its dead scaly layer of skin so the tanner isn’t trying to work its way through it. In the shower, a gentle body scrub such as Pravada’s Organic Shea Butter Scrub can help exfoliate dry and scaly areas including the knees and elbows.

2. Moisturize every day the week before application.

If not a week, at least a few days prior, body lotion should be applied liberally immediately after shower or bath. In order to get an even application, application should start at the same place. Many times certain areas of the body, knees and ankles for example, are much drier than other areas. These areas soak up the self tanner which leads to blotchy coloring. Keeping skin plumped up with moisture will help.

3. Do not apply the self tanner in your steamy bathroom.

The heat and moisture in the bathroom can cause skin to start to sweat and the self tanner can melt and drip which will cause streaks. Also, wait until body has cooled down after shower. Hot skin will have the same effect.

4. Take your time with application.

Self tanning lotions take a bit of time to dry. Start with one area of the body and work around without rushing. By moving slow and paying attention only to the area being working on, clients will get better results.

5. Dilute by half on the areas prone to dark spots.

Knees, ankles and elbows are usually first to show if not applied correctly. Mix half self tanner and half moisturizer for a more natural look on these areas.

6. Wash your hands multiple times during application

Latex gloves are another option. Use a damp triangle makeup sponge to apply to the backs of hands and top of feet. This will keep the self tanner off palms and right where it should go.

7. Wait 15 minutes to get dressed.

Avoid staining clothes and sheets by allowing lotion to dry.

Vitamin C – Restorative Benefits for Skin Thu, 17 Oct 2013 08:34:26 +0000 Marlene
Summer may have ended but the impacts on skin is lasting -  which is why Vitamin C based skin care products are an important component of any natural and organic private label skin care line that targets clients that spend significant time in the sun.

The cutting edge of skin care research shows that aging skin is the result of more than just years on the calendar. Exposure to environmental elements like sunlight, smoke, and air pollution causes photo-aging in skin. Not only does this lead to the formation of lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation – it can lead to more serious skin conditions, including skin cancer.

A comprehensive Vitamin C program, such as the Pravada Vitamin C Skin Care Line can help prevent photo-aging and the onset of more serious skin conditions. Topical Vitamin C has now been shown to provide up to eight times the skin’s natural protection from UV damage. While sunscreens are also an important part of the prevention process, although they cannot do it alone. Vitamin C protects your skin from the sun in ways that sunscreens can’t. When used together, Vitamin C and sunscreens provide almost complete photo-protection – preventing photo-aging, preventing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promoting vibrant skin health.

Oxidative damage shows up on our faces in the form of sun spots, discoloration, wrinkles, sagging, and loss of elasticity and glow. Vitamin C prevents oxidative damage by neutralizing oxygen-free radicals before they can attack the body. Some Vitamin C is available to the body by oral ingestion, but many individuals do not achieve even the minimum daily requirement through diet or supplements. Furthermore, Vitamin C cannot be stored in the body, and so must be reintroduced into the body AND skin on a daily basis.

Our formulators have refined ways to stabilize and deliver additional amounts of key Vitamin C into the skin. Continued research has demonstrated that, properly formulated, Vitamin C combinations work synergistically to provide enhanced benefit. Recent studies show that topical application of optimized Vitamin C combinations can provide up to eight-fold antioxidant protection, ninety-six percent reduction of sunburn cells, and prevent the formation of free radicals in UV irradiated skin (sun exposed skin).

Vitamin C is necessary for the production of collagen, the major structural protein of the skin and although visible differences will not be seen for approximately two months, you may notice a visible difference in skin texture, color and tone in as early as a few days. Our topical Vitamin C products will start to be absorbed by the skin almost immediately. Because these Vitamin C products were developed as a preventative treatment with the goal of protecting the skin from further environmental damage, the skin will benefit the moment the Vitamin C is applied. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles will become less noticeable within two to six months. Individual results will vary, depending upon the condition of the skin at the time of initial use.

Most individuals find the ideal time to apply Vitamin C is in the morning, because during the day you are more susceptible to sun exposure and L-ascorbic acid provides photo protection from UVA/UVB radiation. You can also safely use it at night, as it stays in the skin for up to 72 hours, and cannot be washed off. Using our Vitamin C products once a day should be perfect for optimal results. Do not let the slight sting upon application scare you. The high acid levels are necessary in order for the Vitamin C to be absorbed. Other products with AHA’s can still very safely be used alongside of our Vitamin C formulations, and will actually be greatly enhanced by the addition of these products.

The Pravada Vitamin C line up includes:

Vitamin C Cleanser

For up to eight-fold anti-oxidant protection this cleanser refines skin texture, reduces wrinkle appearance and helps protect from the abuse of the elements. An organic aloe vera and sugar based sulfate free wash, it is gentle enough for daily use.

Organic Protocol For Acne-Prone Skin Tue, 02 Jul 2013 04:30:42 +0000 Marlene


Most individuals normally associate acne with teenage and menopause, but the truth is that acne strikes everyone at least once in their lives. Acne is the result of your sebaceous glands producing excess sebum. Some amount of sebum is needed to keep our skin and hair hydrated but when there is too much of it, it can trap dead cells and debris, causing clogged pores. Blackheads and whiteheads and scars and discoloration – these are all signature prints of oily and inflamed skin. Whether an adult or a teen, no one wants to experience the world with blemished skin.

But there are solutions. In addition to a focus on lifestyle (drinking lots of water and eating healthily), there are new natural and organic private label skin care products available without the toxins and harsh ingredients that have filled the traditional formulations of anti-blemish skin care. At Pravada, we have pulled together what we feel is the best selection of products designed specifically to address problem skin. Our natural and organic calming and clarifying formulas help to regulate sebum production while battling bacteria.

While it is widely know that a quality skin care regimine can help alleviate the break-out problems associated with acne, most skin care products on the market contain chemicals that can aggravate acne-prone skin. By overloading the skin with harsh chemicals that strip the skin’s natural oils, the skin will produce more oil to compensate — which can lead to more blocked pores and acne! Today, there is an alternative – products that contain natural ingredients such as tea tree, licorice, cayenne, turmeric and clove, which are all known for antibacterial properties.

The best method for dealing with acne-prone skin, along with changes in diet and fitness, is to use a high quality protocol of natural based skin care products designed specifically to cleanse, tone and, yes, moisturize the skin. Our multi-step cleansing system is designed to do just that.

Step 1 – Cleansing
Choose from 3 types of cleansers – all are aloe based, sulphate and paraben-free and are formulated specifically for combination to oily skin types. Choose from the premium Bio-Clear Cleanser, the cost effective but very effective Clear Skin Wash and the Sensitive Skin Face Wash with Vitamin C – perfect for those sun worshippers.

Step 2 – Toning
Our Bio-Clear Toner is a special blend of organic lavender distillate (an antiseptic and helps to heal and treat pimples, wounds, and sores); Witch hazel to help tighten and tone the pores; MSM; and organic willow bark, clove essential oil, organic juniper and cayenne to help control sebaceous glad production. It was formulated for reactive, oily, congested, and blemished skin to heal, relieve, and clarify. What you will not experience is dryness, irritation, redness, and inflammation.

Step 3 – Moisturizing
For soft clear skin, we can’t say enough about our Moisturizing Treatment for Acne-Prone Skin. This luscious cream is chock full of actives which purify skin and provide extreme antioxidant benefits. Turmeric reduces inflammation, gotu kola stimulates cell renewal, licorice lightens discoloration, and sage, goldenseal, propolis, sandalwood, and melissa all kill bacteria while soothing the skin and renewing damaged or irritated tissue. Jojoba oil, which rates zero on the comedogenic scale moisturizes without clogging pores since it is a liquid wax, not a true oil. A high end treatment for the most sensitive of skin – this protective formulation is what we feel absolutely the best on the market!

We also love, love, love our new Bio-Clear Moisturizer – with a unique blend of willow bark, cayenne, juniper and clove, this powerful AND gentle anti-bacterial blend leaves skin fresh, hydrated but never greasy and won’t clog pores.

Step 4 – Deep Cleaning and Treatment
Our Anti-Blemish Clear Skin Treatment is a spot treatment for day and night treatment masque o with 2% salicylic acid. This synergistic blend of scientifically proven blemish banishers keeps troubled skin clean and clear. Non irritating like other spot treatments, this anti-blemish treatment is powerful yet gentle and will not dry out the skin.

And finally our new Bio-Clear Masque is the perfect marriage of anti-aging and skin clearing ingredients. Powerful antiseptic and healing action from Tamanu, Clove, Cayenne and Licorice is enhanced with the anti-aging action of Glycolic Acid, Squalane and Salicylic Acid to calm, clear and brighten the skin.

5 Tips to Successful Skin Care Packaging Sun, 30 Jun 2013 15:17:16 +0000 Marlene One of the cornerstones to the success of any consumer product, especially in the beauty industry, is packaging.  Previously unique, high end and cost effective packaging was limited to the major skin care companies.  This is why we continuously scour the market to find suppliers with innovative and low minimum packaging solutions that will set our client’s products apart.  After attending several North American packaging shows recently, our team has uncovered several new options in plastic, glass, acrylic and airless, all available in low quantities to help give your line of private label skin care the touch of luxury it deserves.  As you browse through our packaging catalogue, we hope you will keep the five key considerations in mind when choosing packaging:

  1. Commercial Appeal and Brand Image
    There is no industry that spends more on packaging design than the beauty industry, as “they” say – “the first time they buy your package, the second time they buy your product”. Make sure you don’t skimp on packaging and label design – as attracting your customers and supporting your brand image is key to success
  2. Product Stability
    Quality containers are important to making sure your products stay as fresh as possible. While it is never advisable to display your products in direct sunlight, if you do have bright light it is recommended to use acrylic, colored glass or colored plastic containers. To keep products as fresh as possible, airless containers are recommended over jars.
  3. Shipping Convenience
    Effective and convenient packaging also helps in reducing shipping costs, more so when the packaging design is light. This also becomes very handy in mail order purchases.
  4. Government Regulations
    There are a great deal of regulations that have to be adhered to by companies, from agencies like the FDA, the FTC and Health Canada. Through the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act and Health Canada there are strict safety and standards that must be followed in terms of information required on cosmetic labels. It is important that the owner of any cosmetic line is aware of and adheres to these standards. As such, consideration must be given to the size of the container and how it will be decorated or labelled to ensure all the required information can be accommodated.
  5. Packaging Availability and Minimums
    While we try to offer as many options as possible with low minimums, some containers are only available in case sizes. If you choose packaging that only comes in case sizes, you do have the option to purchase a case of containers, but have us fill only what you require for your orders. Arrangements can then be made to send the excess packaging to you or to store in our facilities for nominal fee.

We hope you like what you see in our new Pravada Private Label Skin Care Packaging Catalogue.  Need help choosing?  Just call us and one of our product specialists will be happy to discuss your line and the options available.  Don’t see what you are looking for?  Just let us know and we will certainly give a try sourcing alternatives to meet your needs.  We can be found at or by calling 1-877-471-3302!

WHY WE LOVE PHOSPHOLIPIDS! Mon, 24 Jun 2013 01:26:06 +0000 Marlene PHOSPHOLIPIDS – Nature’s Anti-Aging Humectant

Product effectiveness is our number one goal with our natural and organic private label skin care  formulations.  Each of our products is developed  with proven active ingredients that actually make a difference in combating the signs of aging. Phospholipids are a favourite anti-aging skin care ingredient as it is one of the best naturally derived actives to help maximize hydration for all skin types.

One of nature’s most powerful humectants, Phospholipids are naturally occurring in skin as a way of protecting the dermal layer from external stressors including wind, sun and chemicals by locking in moisture. Recent studies have shown that topically applied phospholipids, derived from soy lecithin, are very effective in mimicking and enhancing the skin’s ability to retain moisture and protect it from external factors.

Two key benefits of phospholipids in skin care are that they are:

Hygroscopic – they attract water from the surrounding air and hold water where an increased level of hydration is needed.

Non-occlusive – they form a film to prevent water loss, and preventing normal cellular function.

Several studies have demonstrated the value of phospholipids in skin care – it is found that environmental factors (sun, wind, pollution) and the detergents and solvents, found in many non-natural skin cleansers, actually stripped the natural phospholipid content from the top layer of skin. This loss resulted in a rough feel and a pitted appearance under a microscope. Importantly, the phospholipids in the uppermost skin layers cannot be replaced by natural cell function, as the top layer of cells no longer metabolize; they serve only as a protective barrier.

Remarkably, the study showed that topically applied plant phospholipids restore the barrier function of the skin, protecting it from substances such as bacteria and harmful chemicals.  Natural phospholipids contain relatively high amounts of linoleic acid, which play an important role in the human skin`s own synthesis of Ceramide 1, a lipid that is important for intact barrier function. As a result, skin care products can leave the skin soft, hydrated and protected.

We are proud to feature a terrific lineup of serums, moisturizers, eye treatments and masques with Phospholipds as key components of our natural and organic private label skin care collection – ready for your brand and your skin care protocols.
