Rapid Response Line Filler

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Brazil Bronze Rapid Response Line Filler

I have been working in the beauty industry for eleven years and on the whole I am rather jaded when it comes to beauty products. I believe in Cetaphil, sunscreen and Botox. Maybe Retin A and Latisse. When I see products like Philosophy’s “Hope in a Jar.” I just laugh, because to me, that is pretty much what all these lotions and potions are…. an idea, a hope, a desperate hope we are willing to buy. My partner Joy and I are always looking for skin care products that REALLY work. I was kind of sceptical when Joy came accross a product containing Hyaluronic acid spheres. Hyaluronic acid has the capacity to trap water – so basically this is a product designed to plump wrinkles from within.

The last couple of years I have really noticed the fine lines creeping up around my eyes. It is so depressing. Believe me, when it comes to my eyes, I am ready for hope in a jar, in a tube, in a vat, in a keg…whatever. This cream comes in a nifty tube with a steel roller ball dispenser (some people keep in in the fridge so that when they roll it under the eyes, the cool steel balls give extra anti puff relief.) To be honest, when Joy first gave it to me, I thought it looked cool, but I couldn’t even be bothered to try it. Then about a month ago, I think my kids were out or something and I had time to take a nice relaxing bath and play around a little. I stumbled on the little tube and applied it under my eyes, and on all the lines.

I forgot about it until the next morning, I put in my contact lenses and went to put concealer, I TOTALLY noticed a difference. The lines around my eyes, especially, were so much less noticable. Ever since then I am afraid I have been slathering the stuff on over my whole face and I use it on places I have scratches, scars and mosquito bites. I am kind of like the father in “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” with the Windex. It just seems to work well on a variety of maladies. I have a new puppy, well actually she is more of a small wolverine, she doesn’t know her own strength, when she scratches me, I put on the “Rapid Response Line Filler” and it heals it up almost over night.

Read the facts and see what you think – you can buy it in our salon and on our website. Please let me know what you think – email me at sally@brazilbronze.com

BENEFITS

A non invasive alternative to surgery and wrinkle fillers such as Restylane

The micro-spheres containing Hyaluronic Acid penetrate into the varying depth of the skin folds and trap water in the fine lines and wrinkles.

FACT ABOUT HYALURONIC FILLING SPHERES Hyaluronic Filling Spheres are composed of a mixture of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acids, perfectly accepted by skin tissue. They are incorporated in the oily phase of this formulation in a dehydrated form to better penetrate the skin.

When they are applied, they easily lodge in skin tissue depressions (wrinkles) where they progressively but rapidly rehydrate by taking up water that evaporates from the skin. This physical action leads to a volume change of Hyaluronic Filling Spheres in the epidermis that almost immediately smoothes deep wrinkles such as expression wrinkles, at the same time increasing the long-term hydration of the upper layers of the epidermis.

Clinical test results show a decrease of –7.5%, in forehead expression wrinkles after one hour and 12%.after 6 hours.

KEY INGREDIENTS

Squalene – replenishes moisture loss

Sodium Hyaluronate – traps moisture to the skin

Bambusa Vulgaris Extract – Bamboo Extract rich in minerals

Tetrahexyldecyl AscorbateVitamin C

Ahnfelitia Concinna Extract – Bio-fermentation Red Marine Algae from Hawaiian Islands incorporates enzymes and minerals that are beneficial to the skin and increases hydration.

Spray Tan Safety

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Recent news stories have said that spray tanning “may pose health risks”. We would like to talk about these issues straight up. Brazil Bronze has been a pioneer in the spray tanning industry since 2002. We use our own specific brand of sunless tanner. We have always maintained the highest health and safety standards for our clients. We are listening carefully to all the newest data and we would like to give you our thoughts on the information.

A while back ABC Nightline asked us to be involved on a story about the sudden popularity of spray tanning. We were getting ready to shoot the segment when someone sent us an email telling us that ABC was working on an undercover story about the safety of spray tanning. At that time I immediately called the producer and said to her that I would be happy to speak on camera because I was very familiar with all the reports on DHA and I try to keep abreast of all the latest safety recommendations. At that time my partner Joy and I had gone to great trouble to have our DHA fully tested for importing into Europe. The safety standards are so much higher in Europe we literally had to go through the most rigorous testing and we had the full data on hand, including test results on inhalation, swallowing, DHA as absorbed through various methods of spray tanning (HVLP versus spray booths). We felt comfortable that all the data on our product (which is Eco Cert Approved) showed that the product, even when used for spray tanning is safe. AND FAR SAFER, COMPARITVELY TO THINGS USED FOR BEAUTY EVERYDAY. Despite the fact I told the producer I had really fresh data she never called me back. When I watched the  show it was the typical shots of kids working in salons. ABC just wanted the workers in the salon to look dorky – and kind of presented it like everyone who spray tans is an escapee from The Jersey Shore. ABC say they used ten different studies on which their evidence is based. I am waiting for the producer to specifically reference which studies they are using, because I have all the latest, major studies on my desk and they don’t say the same as the hype I heard on that show. I will give you a great example: in one story I read some “expert” said that when DHA was tested on human cells in a petri dish it caused “mutations.” However – WHAT THEY DID NOT MENTION WAS THAT THERE WAS ALSO A SCIENTIFIC CONTROL PETRI DISH WHERE A NEUTRAL, HARMLESS SOLUTION WAS PUT ON CELLS AND MUTATIONS ALSO OCCURED IN THAT PETRI DISH. To me, that is selective, inflammatory reporting. I mean both sets of cells changed – but by saying one set of cells, the ones treated by DHA mutated – that makes you think something terrible happened. The same thing happened to cells in the control. This kind of reporting is so low brow. It manipulates our minds. It creates hype for hypes sake.

DHA has been approved for sunless tanning since the 1950’s. Once spray tanning evolved, some reports mentioned that DHA could cause sensitivity to the eyes, nose and mucous membranes. DHA had widely been reported not to be carcinogenic.

For the average client who comes in a few times a year, or even once a week, the exposure is so minimal. The average client just closes their eyes and in ten years we have never had a client complain of any eye irritation. However, we do not take any risk lightly, so we do have eye goggles, nose plugs and paper underwear to protect all mucous membranes.

When we receive our sunless tanning solution from our lab, it comes with an MSDS (Manufacturers Safety Data). This is a form that accompanies chemicals when they travel, in case of any spill on the way. On the MSDS for Brazil Bronze DHA it says “no mask or gloves required.” Nevertheless, we have always used common sense. We are spraying a tinted product into the air. We obviously did not want to inhale it on a daily basis. Since our salon opened in 2002, my staff and I have always used masks when spraying. It is a rule that our employees must wear a mask. To me that is just common sense.

Every year we are told that something or other “may” pose risks. A great example is hair dye: where you are putting chemicals right on your scalp and leaving it to soak in for 40 minutes. On my desk as I write I have two tubes of toothpaste – Crest Kids and Colgate, something probably every family uses everyday. On the kids toothpaste it says, and I quote: “Keep out of reach of children 6 and under. If more than used for brushing is swallowed, get medical help or contact a poison control center right away.” Fluoride is highly carcinogenic yet we put it in our mouths at least twice a day. Every time I go to a restaurant I seem to be assaulted by wait staff spraying Windex on tables around me. Ammonia is another highly toxic substance we inhale every day. In life there are risks all around, and I personally think that DHA, which for years has been reported as not carcinogenic, is far less of a hazardous substance than hair dye or toothpaste. Like everything in life, the smart thing is to use moderation and take steps to protect your self.  If you are worried about sensitivity or inhaling, use the goggles, nose plugs and paper underwear. Even if you come in to get sprayed on a weekly basis your risk is so minimal compared to the many environmental hazards you face every day. Using deodorant is also supposed to be a hazard.  I would bet any money that you are more likely to die from a brain tumor using your cell phone and putting radiation against your brain that from being in contact with DHA.

At Brazil Bronze we have always thought carefully about what we put in our product. We have always been cogniscent that we were spraying something into the air that could be inhaled. For that very reason we never offered sprays to prep the skin or to seal the tan. To us, when we heard other salons offered that, we thought it was a bogus way of charging clients more without respect for safety. Our DHA is made for us, we have small batches of very fresh DHA, which is why our product doesn’t smell, and if you look at the ingredient list, which you may see in the salon on request, the ingredient list is simple. We strongly believe that we have a safe product because we have been using it for ten years without incident. We care deeply about the safety of our clients and staff and we listen carefully to all the latest recommendations.  Every day we are told to worry about something new. We stand behind our product; we have used it safely for ten years. We have every safety measure in place so you can have a worry free experience and continue to enjoy a safe tan.
