The Badger sunscreen doesn't say one way or the other for faces. I've used it for three days now and I do like it. It goes on rather white from the zinc, but that goes away after awhile. So far I have had no break-outs from it  .

I made some eye cream from coconut oil, coco butter, walnut oil, bee's wax and a little water, I'm enjoying it very much, thanks!

So glad you are liking the eye cream.

I went and looked on Badgers site, to find a local retailer, because I really want to try their sunscreen.  Their sunscreens, both the SPF 15 and the SPF 30, are formulated for the face and body.  What was most impressive was this.....

"We're also proud to tell you that both our SPF 30 and SPF 15 products block both UVA as well as UVB sun rays! A "Critical Wavelength" measurement of 370 nm is considered to be outstanding - Badger SPF30 is 377nm and Badger SPF15 is 376nm."
AND....
"According to the Environmental Working Group's Safe Cosmetics Database, Badger makes one of the world's safest and most effective sunscreens. Most recently, we were recently rated in the top 1% out of over 900 commonly available products."

So, tomorrow I am off to buy some of their sunscreen!

I do find that the Badger sunscreen is a bit lumpy when it comes out of the tube, if you rub it between your fingers the lumps eventually go away.

Frosty,

I saw that you and I are the same blood type.  Do you use facial products that contain coconut oil??  I am very new to this blood type way of life.

I found this wonderful face cream that the Greek nuns make and have been using it since November of last year.  I love the fact that it only has natural ingredients.  The ingredient list is:Jojoba, Coconut, Apricot and Gylcerin Oils, Distilled Water, Aloe Vera Juice and mild lilac essential oil.

Both aloe vera and coconut are on my avoid lists, so I stopped using this cream, even though I LOVE IT.  The price of this face cream was great, only $9.00 for a big jar.

hleva,

Yes I use products that contain coconut oil.  I am not eating it, I just use it topically.  I also make my own body scrubs and use sugar in them.

I think we are ok as long as we are not ingesting it.   If I am wrong, someone here will let us know... They are good here about keeping us on track.

Frosty,

I thought whatever you put on your skin goes into the bloodstream also.

The topical vs the stomach has always been confusing to me.  Some things are avoids because of the way they react going through your digestive system, but wont affect you adversely entering through the skin into your bloodstream.  Why is very complicated.  But if you are concerned, then try a small amount and take note of what happens and how you feel.

I hope this isn't to confusing, I have tried to make this simple, but if you have questions please ask.

I believe the reason is because only about 3% of what we put topically on our skin is absorbed.  The skin is made up of many layers both lipid or non-water soluble layers and water soluble layers. One of the principal functions of skin is to provide a barrier to the transportation of water and other substances. Basically, the non water soluble layers are not letting water in and the water soluble layers are not letting lipids, fats and oils in. This barrier also helps prevent the entry of harmful substances into the body. Some materials, such as acetone, ethyl alcohol, nickel ions and poison ivy, can penetrate the barrier, but most substances cannot.

Until the craze of Alpha Hydroxy Acids most topical creams didn't penetrate much through the Stratum Corneum our outer later of skin.  Alpha Hydroxy Acids will penetrate the skin more because of their molecular makeup.  The smaller the molecule the better the absorption etc.   That is why we are seeing them in skin care.  They are very effective in penetrating and exfoliating the skin allowing better absorption of our products.  

The latest on the scene in skin care are peptides.  Peptides function as messengers in the skin, allowing the epidermis and dermis to communicate more efficiently. Research is showing their effect to be quite measurable. As we age, communication diminishes within the skin, resulting in decreased collagen production and an accumulation of degraded elastin fibers.  Regular use of AHA's and Peptides can reduce wrinkle volume and decrease wrinkle depths.

You will also hear about liposomes in skin care.  They are very confusing to explain, very medical and there is some controversy as to their efficacy.  So I will pass on the explanation of them.

Oils or topical creams won't conflict with the BTD or the GTD unless you are eating them.  If you are in doubt about being sensitive to an oil or cream, do a patch test on your skin with it.

I missed a vital part of the explanation on the layers of the skin.  So, I edited my above post and added to it.

Frosty, I cannot believe the difference the eye cream is making, I'm so happy with it! I just found some Neroli oil in Durango and I'm adding that too it, hope that is OK. As work picks up ($$) I'm going to order some of the other oils as I haven't found Kului nut oil except on line. I can't thank you enough   !

Hej samy,
I am always n the look out fpr THE eyecream, so which one are you talking about? I am mostly inneed of something that doe snot upset my eyes (I am still struggeling with a swollen and ichy read eye from time to time) but also helps smothening wrinkles.
For the skincare I am a bit reluctant to try the Germona Skin Care as I just switched to another skoncare (made by skindoctors-a US brand) and my skin is fantasti, so I do not wantto risk it to make it worse again

I really love the Genoma Skin line I think it is very soothing, but I am not overly sensitive. The eye cream I'm talking about is the home made one that Frosty posted in this thread, just go back a age or two until you find it .

Dear samy, she posted 3, Walnut Oil,m Aproct+Aloe Vera and Cooa Butter. Which one did you try? And did it help against wrinkles (not that they disappear of course, but getting smoother).
So the Genoma you did not get any breakout and it did improve your skin how?
Thanks

This is the one I have been using and YES, the wrinkles are less

Walnut Oil eye cream
Walnut oil is used to treat dry skin and is a key ingredient in many anti-wrinkle and anti-aging products. Use a small amount of this eye cream to protect and nourish the delicate under-eye area.

1 tablespoon grated beeswax
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons walnut oil
1 tablespoon rosewater or distilled water

1. Mix together beeswax and oils in a small container or saucepan and heat gently until the wax is melted. Stir well and slowly stir in the rosewater.  

2.  Allow the mixture to cool and continue to stir so that the oil and water mixtures remain mixed. Spoon the cream into a small container.

Genoma skin care leaves my skin soft and clean, not dried out and I DO break out easily, but no problems.

Yea!!  I finally found this wonderful string.  

My issue is the following:  I have oily face, no acne, and am 34 years old.  I have been hearing all the raving reports about Genome Skincare, but they are all the same.  "My skin is so soft."  Well, for us oily skin gals, skin softness or dryness is not an issue.  

Has anyone yet tried these products that has oily skin?  

And has anyone with oily skin, found a sun-screen that does not make your face feel like an oil slick by noon?  Presently, I have been using a mineral foundation with sunscreen in the mix by Colour ID. It's talc free, and mica free...as I have enough shine.  Is this good enough?

Can you tweak those recipes Frosty for oily skin?

Thanks!

carolinagirl,
Can you get away without using sunscreen? I have oily skin too but it's fair and very sensitive. Sunscreens for my skintype are irritating and the mineral sunscreens for sensitive skin merely clog my skin. I only use zinc oxide sunscreens when I'm body surfing as it stays on which is essential in the Australian surf but it's just too heavy and suffocating in humid conditions.

Your mineral foundation is better than nothing but you need to apply it thickly in order to achieve a high SPF. Does it have an SPF rating? If not, it may still provide some protection (often up to about 8 SPF). But it's not enough for extended periods in the sun.

I wear a hat with a brim rated at 50SPF - it's the best thing as it also protects your eyes and scalp. (My scalp burns easily.) I also happen to love hats - I know many people don't which is a shame as they do the best job in the sun in my opinion.

Samy,

I am so glad to hear that you are enjoying the recipes.  You will love the kukui nut oil.  Spendy but worth it.

eh,

Actually, this company does not state the spf.   I ordered through Raesin Images.  I did find this on their site though:
RAESIN IMAGES Cosmetics does not incorporate harsh chemicals, or synthetic/chemical dyes such as FD&C Colorants, Lake Blended Mica, Bismuth Chloride, (also known as Bismuth Oyxchloride, and Biron) that can and do irritate skin causing rosacea, redness, and cystic acne lesions.  RAESIN IMAGES does not ad chemical fillers, additives, or irritating preservatives. (Ingredients that may not enhance any cosmetic product performance though can/may be potentially harmful.  (***See MSDS website for more information)

I tried some from L'Oreal (I think), and in the summertime it made my skin burn and ITCH!!  I've used this over a year now and had no issues with this foundation. It does great to combat shine.

From what you've shared, as well as reading what Frosty has posted, has made me think twice about the sunscreen issue though.  I used to purchase liquid foundations and would not purchase one with anything less than an spf of 15.  That way I was not applying two products.  I just like the ease of the mineral foundations though so...decisions, decisions.  

I'm hoping, that with the change in my diet, I'm going to see the oily face calm down.  I live in a region where just last week we were at 100% humidity! Ugh.  That brings out the oil.

Thanks

Carolinagirl,
Your mineral foundation sounds very good. (No bismuth is especially good!) If the foundation is doing the job, I'd stick with it as it's so difficult to find products for oily and sensitive skin like ours. The diet may help your oiliness. In my case, however, the diet made me oily. But hey, I look twenty years younger, so this is no longer a complaint in my aging mind

I haven't used it that much due to having oily skin, but I've started now and it's working well.  My skin gets a little red (ruddy?) sometimes, and it helps with that.  It feels oily when I put it on, but seems to open my pores and really helps with inflammation from all sources.
