First time users & those with drier skin types may want to use Plantscription™ Retinol Night Moisturizer every other night for more than 2 weeks to give skin additional time to adjust. For added comfort, use a mild cleanser & layer an additional moisturizer over Plantscription™ Retinol Night Moisturizer.

Limit sun exposure in general. Be sure to apply a sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher during the day while using & one week after stopping use of Plantscription™ Retinol Night Moisturizer. Note that extreme weather conditions such as wind or cold may be more irritating, so take the proper precautions to protect your face.

Carbon (wood, coconut shells and wood) burnt at a specific high temperature removes oxygen and its consumption removes toxic constants from the body. Consequently, it improves the digestive system as neurotoxins, pesticides and breathing molds are removed. Ironically, it is not a new discovery as activated charcoal was previously consumed but indirectly through Brita water. Moreover, the beauty products are loathed with the usage of activated charcoal but its cleanest form is latest entrant to the health drinks list.

Obesity, gas, bad breath, body odor and skin ailments are all tackled by activate charcoal as it battles the bad health and improves the functionality of body for better living.

To access the benefits of charcoal, there is a drink named as Black Magic produced by Project Juice.

Luli BLACK MAGIC: Activated Charcoal Elixir

Come on over to the dark side and meet Black Magic: Our (completely addictive) Activated Charcoal based zesty lemon detox and purification elixir.Activated Charcoal is one of the most badass absorptive and adsorptive agents known, able to extract and neutralize thousands of times it’s own weight in gases, heavy metals, toxins, poisons and other chemicals that we don't want loitering around inside us.

It's a great agent for detox, cleansing and assisting the healing process of the body, preventing/helping hangovers,helping with intestinal issues/food poisoning/gases, and (for us), we feel like it makes us feel sharp and focused, and really helps when we feel sluggish.

Serious YUM:

This zesty lemon tonic tastes like summer, with a twist. Refreshing, energizing, alkalizing, not too sweet but just sweet enough. Detox has never been so fun.

It’s delicious, zesty, refreshing, alkalizing, a definite conversation starter, and the sexiest looking tall drink-of-anything we’ve seen in quite some time.

So jump on in, the water's fine...

ZEW FOR MEN

Brief is a series of natural cosmetics based on a charcoal from Bieszczady mountains.

Currently the series contains of four soaps and a soap stick with a characteristic grey colour coming from the main component. Our task was to design the packaging so that it would communicate: strength, naturalness, masculinity and active life.

We decided to use black and characteristic typography, which makes for an impactful packaging. Letter 'W' in the brand’s logo refers to a mountain shape - another interpratation can also be a canine giving the mark some edge. An important element for the line is also a signet with a feather element and geographical coordinates showing where the important ingredient - Bieszczady charcoal - comes from.

shampoo

Sort of Coal Kuro Shampoo

Sort of Coal is a pioneering Danish company that specializes in producing beautiful and functional White Charcoal products that naturally purify the air, water and body. With White Charcoal as a central element in all of their products, they combine traditional Japanese craftsmanship with functional Danish design. - White Charcoal contains more than 90 percent pure carbon and has a powerful ability to absorb due to its extremely porous surface. It is at the heart of centuries old Asian traditions surrounding well-being and purification. - Sort Of Coal products have an efficient, waste-free lifecycle. Cross-cutting the wood to make White Charcoal is done in a thoughtful way such that the forests are restored rather than destroyed. And when you need to dispose of it, White Charcoal can be used as an excellent fertilizer. White Charcoal is made from wood, but differs from regular charcoal in just about every other way. To produce the white charcoal used, the highest quality branches are individually selected from slow growing, hard wood trees in the mountain forests of Japan and Korea. These forests are maintained by craftsmen who harvest from them in such a way that new branches are encouraged to grow. These new branches absorb higher levels of CO2 than their predecessors, giving greater benefit to the surrounding environment and providing a plentiful harvest for the craftsmen. The natural minerals that the trees absorb as they grow are captured inside the White Charcoal, imparting it with its purifying/detoxifying effects. Formulated WITHOUT: - Parabens - Sulfates - Synthetic Fragrances - Synthetic Dyes - Petrochemicals - Animal Testing - GMOs

Origins: Whole Grain Oatmeal Cookies by Marian

Summary
Marian, Mexican manufacturer of gourmet cookies has launched Origins, a healthy oatmeal cookie snack line. This current line is a deviation for Marian who is known for their gourmet style cookies.  Origins is a healthy alternative snack line currently offering four flavor varieties.  The packaging is simple focusing on the products rather than slick marketing.  The catch line ´back to basics´implies a return to natural ingredients.  Each box contains eight individually packaged cookies ensuring freshness and longer shelf life.

Analysis & Impact
Healthy snack launches in Mexico are few and far between however their numbers are on the rise.  Focus on natural ingredients and health benefits is a global trend that is slowly making its way into Mexico.  While price is still king when making purchases, Origins cookies are very competitively priced, made for the most part with natural ingredients and full of health benefits.  Marian has made a strategic move to enter the healthy snacks market that will position their brand very favorably in the future.  The cookies themselves are very flavorful and as close to natural as making them at home.  Wrapping each cookie individually is a smart packaging move as well to ensure freshness as opposed to one large bag.  Choosing a name in english appeals to a more global consumer and most likely means this product line is aimed at exportation as well.
