We now know a lot of the component ingredients of these long
un-pronounceable products are made up of animal derived ingredients
(bones tendons and other parts that are thrown away by the butcher),
sulfurs, sea weeds (with all sorts of pollutants), chemicals,
silicones, Phthalates, artificial soaps, and only God knows what
This, we have come to believe is our reason for being. Bringing
quality products at affordable prices directly to our customers. We
hope you continue to enjoy them.
Below are the details about how we came up with this:
Solving skin problems is what we do. And for the longest time it has
perplexed us to solve the riddle of dry feet. Every moisturizer we
came up with, no matter how thick, didn’t seem to do much for those
suffering from these dry cracked feet problems. I have family
members who just didn’t understand with all we’ve been able to
accomplish, why couldn’t we fix their feet?
As everyone with problem feet knows the skin there is different than
anywhere else on your body. It really doesn’t respond very well to
moisturizers. It takes a special combination of oils and butters and
waxes, without water to get the skin there to soften.
We test all of our products on humans only. I’ve been trying for
years to help my sister’s feet. After my sister with the super dry
feet gave us two enthusiastic thumbs up for this version, next we
thought the perfect person to run this by would be a pedicurist in a
salon. We found a good one who was willing to try something new. She
already is using our products for herself. She took a couple of
tubes and was surprised to find her clients comment on how it was a
remarkable feeling for their feet. Sort of a warming feeling. Hard
to describe. Anyway the next thing she said was: how can I get more?
I personally don’t have dry feet or even thought about using such a
product, but when I tried it I was amazed at how sensual it felt.
Almost erotic. OK I don’t have a foot fetish, but it really felt
good after it was left on the foot for 15 minutes or so. Then I just
massaged it in and went to bed. Woke up the next day with dewy soft
skin on the bottom of my feet.
How do you recommend using this? You can just rub it on anytime you
have a few minutes to allow it to absorb. When I started testing
this on my feet I exfoliated first. Which removes dead skin cells.
Any of our exfoliants (scrubs) work perfectly for this. Just make
sure to wash afterwards with the natural soap and rinse well. Dry
off your feet. Then go sit in front of the TV with a foot stool.
This comes in a push up stick. Just rub on. Use your fingers if you
like to make sure all areas are covered. Then let your feet dangle
over the foot rest as long as you can. At least 15 minutes. Most
will absorb into your feet. Massage the rest in. Enjoy.
You foot fetish people out there, I’ll leave you to figure this all
out as far as a routine. I’m pretty certain you will know what to
We’ve actually had this product finished for a few months and just
haven’t got around to getting it in production and out to our
customers. But now we are getting people who have tried it bugging
us to get it out there.
We believe an informed consumer is going to make better decisions
about products they buy.
ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS WE USE: We don’t use cheap ingredients. Many
companies talk about the natural ingredients they use. The question
is how natural are they?
What is ‘LABEL CANDY’? Label candy is a term used for an ingredient
in a product in the skin care industry or supplement industry used
to sell a product. Often weak (inexpensive, watered down) extracts
are put on the label to encourage a person to buy something that
contains what turns out to be very little of the ingredient they are
boasting about. You see them, extracts of: valerian root, white
willow, horse tail, licorice root, calendula, comfrey, rosemary and
it goes on and on (sounds like potions from a Harry Potter movie).
If you could find any significant amounts of these ingredients (and
I doubt you will) they still wouldn’t do anything for your skin
other than to get you to buy the product. In other words they are
label candy. They perform no useful function to helping the skin.
ALL they do is to get you to buy a product filled with sulfurs,
artificial soaps and un-pronounceable ingredients.
All of the ingredients in our products are real, in significant
quantities and really do something good for the skin. Contrary to
what Madison Avenue is selling us, oils are good. Each variety
contains important nutrients our skin can use.
We use the finest quality ingredients. Many commonly used oils and
butters by companies who call themselves natural, are so highly
processed at such high temperatures that they are virtually
worthless. All the goodness has been processed out of them. You see
a lot of inexpensive oils, like grape seed oils and sweet almond
oils. Most of our ingredients we use are raw or at least not
processed with high temperatures. The difference is evident in the
quality of our products.
What about so called ‘organic’ ingredients? Not so sure about eating
organic products. Probably a good idea. As far as skin care? At this
point they mostly fall into the label candy category. You can get
seed oils organic from traditionally harvested seeds like sunflower.
But most of the high quality oils are harvested from plants that
grow wild (Wild-crafted). Often grown in third world countries where
the natives rely on this as income. For an ingredient to be organic,
it has to be able, if challenged, to prove it’s provenance. In other
words what was used to fertilize it and any pesticides that were
used. This is hard if not impossible to do from a plant growing wild
in a far away country. I am therefore skeptical when a product
starts throwing around the organic label. We use organic sunflower
oil in one of our products, but it tests absolutely the same as
non-organic. It’s a good selling term and a lot of people are
getting rich using it, just not certain it means anything right now
in the skin care industry.
FORMULATION? What is the secret? No magic, just a lot of hard work
getting this formulation exactly right. Some of these ingredients
are super absorbing and some are less so. We believe the super
absorbing ingredients when paired with the less absorbing ones help
the less absorbing ones go deeper in the skin to get more benefit to
your skin. For example, Mango butter is a surface oil. Jojoba for
example is a highly absorbing oil. Just pairing the two seems to
move the mango deeper into the skin where it can do more good. This
product has many such combinations.
