New Product - Light Facial Emulsion, Oily skin breakthrough




I have formulated hundreds of products over the years. Being the head formulator for my company The Body Deli, has given me the opportunity to work with some of the most exciting all natural products from around the world. One of my favorite things is to get new product samples and play in my "Cosmetic Kitchen" other wise known as the R&D lab.
I feel like a little kid in a candy store, what gets me going is textures, aromas, new innovative active ingredients to exfoliate, hydrate, reduce wrinkles or whatever the need may be. Quite honestly our latest product, Light Facial Emulsion is one of the most exciting.

My inspiration came from one of my cleanses. I was on a program of ionic minerals and found a very interesting phenomenon, a certain mixture of minerals really made my skin soft topically and even more dramatic was that it also reduced the oiliness of my skin. Then a lightbulb moment happened and I thought maybe I could formulate a product using ionic minerals that would hydrate, soften and smooth the skin while controlling excess oil and breakouts.

Well my dear friends that is exactly what happened. I have worked on this formula longer than any other product, it has been about 2 years in the process and I feel that I have the mineral ratio just right. It is one of the more unique products on the market today.
The unique benefits of this product is that it makes the skin soft, supple and moist while controlling excess oil. Most of the moisturizers today that control oil secretion either contain actives such as salicylic acid or the harsh benzol peroxide. These ingredients do a good job of controlling oiliness, but in many cases horribly dry out the skin and cause a very tight uncomfortable feeling. I have many customers that come to me in tears saying that they have oily skin but most products make it feels so dry and tight. Well no fear a solution is here...Light Facial Emulsion is really an answer to this dilemma. There are very few clean, lightweight moisturizers that do what our Light Emulsion can do.

It really is quite a breakthrough in skin care technology, and the best part is it is totally natural, free of all BPO (Benzyl Peroxide) harsh acids, toxic "oil" free emollients and paraben based preservatives. So I thought I would share this with my readers, I am super excited about it and thought you may be too.

Have a beautiful day

Celebrity Spotlight - Cobie Smulders


Cobie Smulders

I had the pleasure to meet Cobie Smulders. She is so fresh and vibrant it was a real treat. Cobie plays journalist Robin Scherbatsky on the hit show, How I Met you Mother. Cobie visited The Body Deli during her stay in the desert. It is so cool to meet people from Hollywood that are so down to earth and genuine. Sorry for the horrible photo quality, I used my iphone. The darn thing takes horrible pictures, I hope that iphone 2.0 does a better job. Steve Jobs hope you are reading this. LOL. Cobie rocks as another fabulous Hollywood starlet that is beautiful on the inside and out.

Have a beautiful day
