Toxins be gone with Activated Charcoal!

When most people think about charcoal, it has to do with the grill – but activated charcoal is so much different than those little briquettes that glow with heat!

340262-5dc76917d88a4f3fb5cde6a89b57294a

Activated Charcoal is derived from many of the same things as charcoal briquettes.  Basically it is carbon that has been oxidized in order to increase its absorption properties.  The oxygen “activates” the charcoal, making it a powerful tool in the absorption of toxins and bacteria in the body, and on the body.

We here at Passion Flower Beauty use activated charcoal in many of our soaps and bath bombs.  Not only is it proven to detoxify, it can also aid in removal of dead skin cells, which allows faster and more efficient production of new ones!  It also can help with the appearance of large pores, acne issues, minor skin irritations and can even help balance oily skin.

Activated charcoal helps draw the toxins and bacteria to the surface, and then binds to it, to pull it out and then simply wash away.  It leaves your skin feeling clean and invigorated!

Buddha-ful Green Tea Goodness

For centuries, Green Tea has been a staple in China.  It has even been used as medicine throughout Asia.  It is no secret that Green Tea contains antioxidants that can benefit aspects of health from weight to diabetes to inflammation and even cardiovascular health.  What some do not know is that the powerful antioxidants found in Green Tea can also do AMAZING things for our skin!

a-cup-of-a-green-tea

In comparison to other teas, Green Tea is special.  Green Tea does not go through the same processing as other teas, like black tea or oolong tea. This difference in processing allow Green Tea to retain the rich antioxidants, amino acids, polyphenols, vitamins and enzymes it possesses naturally.  These antioxidants are what gives it such awesome medicinal qualities – like the power to actually repair DNA – which is great news for our bodies, including our skin.

Passion Flower Beauty is passionate about skin and caring for skin.  We believe in only the best ingredients for our products and we want to help you better your skin – which is why we are so excited about using Green Tea in our products, like our Buddha-ful handmade soap.  Green Tea detoxifies and can help flush out the daily toxins that come in contact with our skin.  It exfoliates and nourishes the skin, and can actually repair DNA, which can reverse sun damage and signs of aging.

A powerful anti-inflammatory, Green Tea can also aid in the appearance of eye puffiness and skin sagging.  It can help with redness and acne.  It has also been known to give relief to those suffering with such skin issues as psoriasis and rosacea.  Green tea can even prevent skin cancer!!

Try our Buddha-ful Handmade soap with Green Tea today, and enjoy all these benefits. Be on the lookout for more Green Tea products in the future!

More and more men are becoming concerned with the care they give themselves.  The truth is that some men have special needs that women do not think of!  Men who have more sensitive skin have to worry even more about the products they use.  Regular shaving can really do a number on skin, and skin care for men is so full of alcohol and chemicals that can contribute to dry, flaky skin, razor burn and even break outs!  Our shaving cream is made with aloe, papaya and pineapple to help soften the coarse hair, and sooth that fresh skin underneath.  Cocoa butter and other essential oils leave the skin moisturized and nourished, naturally – with ZERO chemicals!

BOMBS AWAY! Why we love bath bombs!

There is a craze that has become extremely popular within the last few years.  It is called the Bath Bomb! These magical bath bombs have been around for over 30 years!  The basic ingredient in bath bombs is baking soda. Some have sea salt, therapeutic oils and minerals, healing agents, and even glitter. Some often come with a nice little trinket or treasure inside of it. Many fans of bath bombs love them because of the colorful effect that they have on the water or the more natural ingredients unlike bubble baths that can irritate the skin.

adorable-antique-baby-326592
Everyone seems to have jumped aboard the bath bomb craze and for great reason too!  This craze has gotten a lot of exposure and now everywhere we look, we can find some kind of bath bomb or fizzy.  There are even bath bombs for children with cartoon characters and movie characters. Because they are so incredibly gentle, parents love to buy them for their younger children.

This is a trend that is going to stay around for quite some time. Everyday, it seems more and more people are learning to produce them as well. It’s the perfect time to look around and find the best bath bombs for your interests. You will be surprised at exactly what you find.

For The Love of Soaps!

pexels-photo-235842-2

Have I mentioned how much I love making soaps? Seriously, it’s as if I can’t get enough. Just the past week, I had a custom order for unicorn soaps for one of my favorite three year olds at my preschool! I was so delighted when I talked to her mom about how fun bath time was with these soaps! Things like this make my heart smile so big!

I’m here to talk about the benefits of goat’s milk soap, 98% of the soaps on http://www.passionflowerbeauty.com are made of goat’s milk. Do you know a lot about goat’s milk? Oh, pull up a chair, I can share some information with you.

Goat milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid which help remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. This leaves new cells on the surface of your skin that are smoother and younger looking. The alpha-hydroxy acids are so effective because they break down the bonds that hold the dead skin cells together. Removing dead skin cells will help many skin conditions by removing irritation. Water-based soaps may use harsh chemical acids to accomplish this, frequently with skin-damaging results.

pexels-photo-773252

Goat milk contains many vitamins, but is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin. There have been several medical studies showing that creams made with Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some psoriasis relief. Water-based soaps can be artificially fortified with vitamins, but most aren’t.

Fat molecules are an important part of making good soap. The cream that is present in goat milk helps boost the moisturizing quality of goat milk soaps. Since many people suffer from dry skin, particularly in the winter months, this is an important quality for soap. Goat milk soap will not dry your skin out like many other soaps. This is important because keeping skin naturally moisturized helps keep skin healthy.

Goat milk contains important minerals for the skin such as selenium. Selenium is believed by scientists to have an important role in preventing skin cancer. Selenium can also help prevent damage to the skin from excessive time in the sun. Although the water used in other soaps may contain minerals such as calcium, sodium, or iron (commonly found in tap water), that’s not much help when it comes to your skin.

Unicorns Everywhere!

hands-purple-child-holding

Unicorns… they seem to be everywhere now. I remember when I was a child and I was fascinated with them and now, people of all ages are obsessing over them once again. Why? Why the unicorn? Is it the magical power that they seem to have over us? Television and pop culture? Who knows, but all we know is that unicorns may be fiction, but they are here to stay!

We have had a unicorn horn bath bomb on our website, but the thing we are most excited about is our new…..UNICORN SOAPS!!! Yes, I said it, soaps! They are pink and smell so sweet. The essential oil that we use for them is Strawberry so you can imagine how tasty they smell, although, you cannot eat them, unfortunately.

Here is a quick look at our, new unicorn soaps. With the sweet smell of Strawberry, these Unicorn soaps will make your skin look, feel, and smell amazing! They come in a bag of 3 for only $6! They are made with Goat’s Milk, organic coconut oil, grapeseed oil, soybean oil, olive oil, palm kernel oil, beeswax, sodium hydroxide, all-natural pink mica, and strawberry essential oils.

2017: New Year, New Products

The new year will bring many changes to people’s lives and that means Passion Flower Beauty as well. We have been testing quite a few products since we opened our online store in 2014. As we go into our third year of business, we have had some ups and some downs. We have had amazing reviews and we have had some terrible reviews. We see this as a learning process, and with every new product we make and try, we have seen our company grow and change.

Many of our loyal customers do not want to see us change very  much. Not to worry, we won’t be changing too much. We will be adding some new products and making some of our older products much better. We will be introducing new eyeshadow colors and a lot more mattes for those who have asked and been so patient. We will add more sparkle. We will add new scents in lotions and build more and more stock in the ones that have become incredibly popular.

We will introduce more and more bath bombs and we have teamed up with some great companies to bring goat’s milk soaps and all-natural foundation. The West Farm Goats will deliver us some great soaps at the same great price. The RAW company will be making foundation and concealer for us as well.

Things are really looking up in the future and it is very close. Thank you for sticking with us for all of this. We are so happy to call you all our customers and friends. Check out all of our current products now at http://www.passionflowerbeauty.com

For those who suffer from conditions like eczema and psoriasis, this soap can truly help your skin. There are plenty of other ways that it can help your skin.

Vitamins and Minerals for you skin

Goat’s milk has been used for many years to make soaps and it has recently become very popular once again. Goat’s milk contains lactic acid when added to soap can help to remove the dead skin cells from your face and body. This also will help your skin to look and much younger. You won’t see these results overnight, but the more you use goat’s milk soap, the better it will feel.

Vitamin A is a huge ingredient in goat’s milk soap and it has been shown to have great benefits for your skin as well. Vitamin A can help your skin to repair the cells that are dying. What does this mean for you? Goat’s milk can help get rid of lines and wrinkles when it is used regularly. It is not the cure all, but it will help to make your skin look much younger. Because goat’s milk isn’t harsh on your face like water-based soaps, you will start to feel the difference immediately!
