    Care Skincare: A Consumer-Direct Clean Beauty Brand Formulated with High Quality Ingredients

    After a year of intensive research and development, Digital Brands LLC announced the official launch of CareSkincare. The brand was developed by a team of world-class experts who formulated five key highly effective multi-functional products that would address the skin’s most important needs in a straightforward, simple way using high-quality ingredients.

    A clean beauty brand, all formulas were developed using only safe, proven ingredients that are fragrance-free. Additionally, no products in the line are ever animal-tested. Care Skincare sells directly to consumers—avoiding retail markups and costs. These savings are passed along to the consumer in the brand’s pricing.

    “After having spent many years leading product launches globally for Estee Lauder Companies, Inc., I came to the conclusion that what works in skincare is actually very simple,” said Care Skincare Co-Founder, Ricardo Quintero.“We felt we really owed it to the marketplace to launch a brand that offered a straightforward approach with quality product at a better price.”

    The Care Skincare launch includes essential products designed to deliver outstanding results, with minimal daily effort. The collection is straightforward, clean and honest. The brand strives to be easy to understand, having stripped away any unnecessary jargon from its marketing. Packaging is simple, legible, functional, and always recyclable.

    “Having tried out skincare regimens throughout my pregnancies, seasonal changes, and travels, I was very much in touch with the challenges of committing to products that weren’t flexible enough to fit my needs at different stages in my life,” said Care Skincare Co-Founder Pilar Quintero. “Careoffers safe, highly effective products that work for all skin types. We knew it was possible to achieve that.”

    All products in the Care Skincare line were developed by a team of world-class experts using high quality ingredients that strictly adhere to the brand’s clearly communicated standards for “Clean Beauty.” Everything offered from the brand is fragrance-free, alcohol-free, mineral oil-free, paraben-free, phthalates-free, and cruelty-free.

    “The most important lesson I have learned in my 35 years of developing prestige skincare products is that it’s not just about a singular ingredient—it’s how each formula has been independently and expertly curated to work at its maximum potential,” said Debbie D’Aquino, Head of Product Innovation for Care Skincare. “The comfort and elegance of a skincareproduct is equally important to performance and safety.  That’s why each Careproduct has also been designed to be extremely pleasurable to use. This way, you enjoy using them each and every day.” 

    The Care Skincare launch collection features five key products:

    Soft Sweep Micellar Cleanser + Toner—This gentle, rinse-free formula cleanses effectively without stripping the skin. Its microscopic micelles act as dirt and oil magnets. Soft Sweep Micellar Cleanser + Toner is available in 8 oz. at a retail price of $24.

    Deep Moisture Fix Hydrating Water Cream—This gel-cream moisturizer has a soothing texture. The hyaluronic acid in the cream absorbs deeply to provide multi-level hydration and support skin elasticity. The product was designed for use as a daily moisturizer and can be applied under or over make-up and as a quick rehydrating mask. Deep Moisture Fix Hydrating Water Cream is available in 1.7 oz. at a retail price of $35.

    Tireless, Retinoid Night Serum—This transformative serum renews and repairs skin overnight. Granactive Retinoid™ provides unparalleled anti-aging benefits without irritation. The product was designed to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation for a visibly brighter, smoother complexion. Tireless, Retinoid Night Serum is offered in two sizes: 1 oz. at a retail price of $45, and 2 oz. at a retail price of $68.

    Eye + Lip Nourishing Cream—Formulated to treat and repair the delicate area around the eyes and around the lips, this dense cream with a light-diffusing finish softens the look of fine lines and dark circles. It absorbs quickly and won’t drift into eyes or interfere with makeup. Eye + Lip Nourishing Cream is available in 0.5 oz. at a retail price of $30.

    The Everything Multi-Level Moisturizer—This multi-functional formula nourishes, hydrates and repairs the skin and includes powerful antioxidants, turmeric and black tea ferment. Additionally, peptides provide the benefits of a serum in the comfort of a cream. The Everything Multi-Level Moisturizer is available in 1.7 oz. at a retail price of $40.

    Desert Harvest Aloe Vera Gele for the Family

    This is our 3rd summer in Las Vegas! We are still acclimating to the desert heat and how to be summer smart, so I am always on the hunt for new products. As you know, we are expecting and with all the baby stuff coming into the house, I have been really overwhelmed. Babies can’t use certain products, pregnant mama’s can’t use products with Salicylic Acid, and dad just wants something simple and doesn’t smell girly!  But finally, there is a product that is good for the whole family.

    Image result for desert harvest

    I am a huge fan of Aloe Vera and have been using it for ages but the Desert Harvest Aloe Vera Gele is in a league of its own! First of all, it comes in the green bottle, which protects the integrity of the product. This is optimum for UV protection for light-sensitive contents.  The easy pump makes sure the perfect amount of product comes out every time. Using Aloe has helped my super dry shins!

    5 Reasons why men can benefit from Aloe Vera Gele:

    • Tattoo Healing
    • Acne
    • Sun Burn
    • After Shave antiseptic
    • All-natural intimacy moisturizer

    5 Reasons why women can benefit from Aloe Vera Gele:

    • Skincare
    • Moisturizing legs and arms
    • After sun/After tanning
    • Stretching skin on the growing belly
    • Bottom of my feet and after washing my hands

    + Pets!

    Cami’s paws get very dry and I put the Aloe Vera Gele on her paws to restore her paws.

    + Baby!

    I will be using this product on baby once he or she is here as it is quite safe. … Eczema can inflame the skin with itchy and red patches. Allergies and a weak immune system can also lead to eczema and worsen the condition. You can use natural remedies like aloe vera gel on your baby’s skin without any side effects!

    If you are interested in getting pure Aloe Vera, I recommend checking out Desert Harvest for their quality products: http://www.desertharvest.com/

    Unlock Your Youth in 15 Minutes: a Science-Backed “Lipomask” Offers the Right Amount of Everything

    The sensitive skin population is most likely to remain loyal to a particular product for
    a long time, and also has the highest demands with regard to product quality. When
    changes occur in an external environment, corresponding changes will occur in
    delicate skin, such as dehydration, peeling, redness, swelling, and pruritus. If proper care is not administered, these changes may result in accelerated aging. TCI’s cosmet-
    ics facility is the only facility that has received OECD Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) accreditation for the execution of cell and skin irritation tests to confirm non-toxicity. Hence,TCI products are 100% safe and non-irritating. TCI product range is guaran-
    teed to be free from 7 major types of additives: artificial fragrances, artificial colors, alcohol, parabens, petroleum-based surfactants, mineral oil and biological hormones.
    Therefore, your additive-free masks are just like another layer of skin, and can be
    applied at any time!

    For several years now, Asian beauty has been the trend to follow in the cosmetics world. In particular, sheet masks have become a new beauty phenomenon, popping up all over celebrities’ social media accounts and big brands’ fashion campaigns. There’s good reason for this, since these masks brighten, tighten, and hydrate the skin, leaving users looking beautiful in a flash. Plus, consumers do not have to change their skin care routine to receive the benefits from these masks.


    The rare wild orchid species of Taiwan’s East Coast are delicate yet tenacious. Experiments have proven that the Young® Orchid stem cell extract can increase the expression of genes related to hyaluronic acid synthesis in the human body, and possesses excellent antioxidant properties. These features facilitate skin protection, preserve the skin’s moisture content, and enhances skin defense. In addition, it provides long-lasting hydration and regulates the water content of the skin surface.


    Abandon all inhibitions in the accepting caress of the coastal wonders; discover your enthusiasm for life with the scent of the infinite ocean! The tranquility of a smooth sandy beach can change the molecular chemistry of our body. The motion of the ocean waves yields negative ions; negative ions speeds up our body’s absorption of oxygen. Negative ions also balance serotonin levels, and serotonin is the body’s mood and stress display substance. This is why scientists have associated the beach experience with mental wellbeing and overall energy, health and happiness; it may even improve the troubles of irregular sleepers.


    Osmotic pressure is the force that drives the balance in intracellular and extracellular fluid concentrations. Thus, direct absorption can occur in cells, as the osmotic pressure prevents cell damage due to excessively high or low pressures. Nutrients required by the skin can be replenished instantly, and the skin’s normal circulation can be maintained.


    Instant relief for dryness and itching due to skin dehydration! Every day, people are exposed to severe air pollution and omni- present irritants in the environment. Thus, it is important to care for the skin by soothing the tightness and discomfort caused by irritants. Camellia sinensis extract provides a soothing and calming effect. Glycosyl trehalose forms a special protective membrane on cell surfaces, which protects skin structures from damage and insulates the skin against external irritants. It gives you instant relief through rapid anti inflammatory and anti-itching effects.

    Scientific tests have shown that the moisturizing effect of Lipomask™ is not only better than that of a general mask (by 18 percent) but also long-lasting.

    Indeed, sheet masks boost skin-care and give immediate, visible results. According to Google, “masking” is currently the top skin-care trend on the Internet. A 2015 Transparency Market Research report on the evolution of the sheetmask market stated that this market has reached US$160.4 million, with growth expected to reach US$336.7 million by 2024. In short, the sheetmask market represents a huge opportunity for cosmetics brands.

    Some distinguishing factors of sheet masks include their feel, fit, and functions. For those looking to give this latest skin-care craze a try, it’s important that they know the latest information when choosing the best sheet mask for the skin. Recently, TCI, a core partner of over 350 brands in 42 countries in the nutraceutical and cosmeceutical industries, introduced a campaign called “Unlock Your Youth,” which illustrates in detail the newest trends and most important facts in choosing the right sheet mask.

    Backed by science and proven results, “Unlock Your Youth” focuses on 2 key topics:

    1. The ingredients your skin really needs.
    2. The extent your skin really does absorb ingredients.

    It must be remembered that a mask is a vehicle that delivers active ingredients to the skin to improve skin quality. Our skin really does absorb ingredients, but only to a certain extent. Now, however, the use of occlusive dressings, which are air- and water-tight trauma medical dressings used in first aid, have led to an advanced breakthrough in the penetration and absorption of active ingredients by the skin. When implemented in sheet masks, these masksbecome more conductive and help the skin to fully absorb the effective ingredients more efficiently. Although in recent years a “less is more” philosophy has often been advised for beauty routines, TCI has delivered proven results that speak for themselves: “more is more,” and your skin will glow!

    Implementing occlusive dressings is only the beginning. TCI has also developed Lipomask™, a technology that uses microemulsion to form a spherical vesicle with a phospholipid bilayer, creating a structure that is similar to a cell membrane. The lipophilic ability of the outer layer of the liposome enables it to quickly penetrate the skin and effectively release the active ingredients. Scientific tests have shown that the moisturizing effect of Lipomask™ is not only better than that of a general mask (by 18 percent) but also long-lasting. In vitro test results have also shown that Lipomask™ serum quickly penetrates within 5 minutes, which is far better than general mask essence. After using Lipomask™ for 8 hours, the moisture effect is 20 percent higher than that of a general mask.

    According to TCI, Lipomask™ is the result of various consumer-driven initiatives. Thanks to scientific and technical improvements, Lipomask™ delivers the right amount of actives for effective absorption by the skin. In addition, all Lipomask™ series are produced in TCI‘s S11 environmentally-friendly factory, which has been certified with LEED Gold Certification.

    In this dynamic industry where people are longing for new products that make a provable difference, planning and evaluating for consumer-brand challenges has enabled OEM/ODM manufacturers like TCI to develop more effective products and bring them to market successfully.
