More Choices

Lora's Beauty now offers two types of Beer Bar Shampoo. You can now select either a bar made with a Porter beer or a bar made with an Amber Ale beer. Both beers are rich in hops and malts. The B vitamins, the proteins found in malt and hops, are said to repair damaged hair and boost overall body. Meanwhile, the maltose and sucrose sugars in beer tighten the hair’s cuticles for enhanced shine. The Porter Beer Bar is darker than the Amber Ale bar but both are excellent for your hair!

Bath Teas and Salts

Another suggestion from a Lora's Beauty customer has resulted in three choices for your bath!

Bath Teas and Salts
Lora's bath teas now come in three varieties. For those who prefer bath salts, you can now get tea bags filled with Dead Sea Salts and Epsom Salts, great for relaxing tired muscles. Also available are teas made of an herbal mixture of chamomile, jasmine, and yucca root, great relaxing and skin softening herbs. Can't make up your mind? Get mixed tea bags, made of salts and herbs! All three varieties come in a relaxing citrus/outdoor scent.

New Idea From a Customer

I just heard a great idea from a regular customer. She has extremely dry skin. She says she uses the Dry Oil Body Spray along with the Body Butter. She puts some Body Butter in her hand then sprays some of the oil on it and rubs it into her skin. It works great for those really dry areas on the body!

Time for Sunscreen

There's a great article in the Oregonian today that reiterates the importance of using sunscreen. Most importantly the article points out the best ingredients a sunscreen should contain and what ingredients it shouldn't.
"Controversial ingredients. Some (not all) researchers have raised red flags about two absorbable sunscreen ingredients: oxybenzone and retinyl palmitate (a form of vitamin A). Both are found in hundreds of sunscreens. The concerns? Oxybenzone, which has been used in sunscreens as a partial UVA/UVB shield since 1978, has been called a hormone disruptor that mimics the effects of estrogen in lab studies. Retinyl palmitate has triggered genetic mutations when exposed to sunlight in the lab.

In other words, one or both might have a cancer connection. The dangers of these ingredients have been disputed by the American Academy of Dermatology and others. We think: Until the research is clear, we're sticking with sunscreens that use nanoparticulated zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to block UVA/UVB rays. "

Lora's Beauty Sunscreen contains zinc oxide and none of the "controversial ingredients". It's also priced tens of dollars less than drugstore or department store sunscreens.
