Time Control Cream

Vie Collection Time Control Deep Wrinkles Firming EGF Cream
VIE Collection extends its TIME CONTROL anti-aging expertise to skin slackening.

TIME CONTROL Deep Wrinkles Firming EGF Cream draws its inspiration from redensifying EGF* to combat deep wrinkles, devitalization, loss of elasticity, loss of volume and sagging facial contours.
EGFs are proteins that are naturally present in the skin and are able to boost cell growth capability and regeneration by initiating the synthesis of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. With age, the concentration of EGFs in the body decreases and signs of aging appear: devitalized skin, deep wrinkles and slackening of tissues.

VIE Collection visibly reverses all signs of skin slackening with TIME CONTROL Deep Wrinkles - Firming EGF Cream.

*Epidermal Growth Factors.

EGFs:
Considered the most powerful cosmetic active ingredient for reversing the biological signs of aging, EGFs are naturally present
in the skin.

MODE OF ACTION OF EGFs:
- Produced when the body activates tissue repair following a skin "wound"
- Act as intercellular messengers by binding to target receptors
- Transmit instructions for growth, multiplication and regeneration to cells

RESULTS:
Cell activity is accelerated and skin regeneration is set in motion again.
As the number of EGFs decreases with age, the skin is less protected against skin aging: cell degeneration, deep wrinkles, skin slackening, and emaciation of the tissues occurs.
Obtained by chemical synthesis, the EGF-like peptide has the same molecular structure as EGF. It is attracted to EGF receptors and thus strongly activates cell division. Cell regeneration is thus faster and more effective.

Use morning and evening on face and neck. Use in conjunction with Time Control Deep Wrinkles EGF Serum for added benefit.

She Was Warned

5"x5" sticker now.
she was warned...nevertheless,she persisted.
When I was 12 my grandmother gave me a refrigerator magnet that stated, "A closed mouth gathers no foot".
I've always been "shushed" or told to "be still", and I have persisted my entire life.

My grandmother loved me. Even if I didn't keep my mouth shut.

Thanks to Brett Hurlbut for the design work. I'll love you always.

Controlled Chaos

Controlled Chaos Curl Creme
Controlled Chaos was created by a hairstylist with curly hair and developed with feedback from hundreds of her beloved curly clients. As if providing the best frizz-fighting, sun-blocking, curl-smoothing product wasn’t enough, the socially-conscious Controlled Chaos Curl Crème is made with organic U.S.-sourced ingredients and packaged in BPA-free bottles. Plus, one percent of all sales benefit the environment through 1% for the Planet.

No more product layering! Controlled Chaos Curl Crème is the ultimate all-in-one curl product. No need for a detangler, primer, mousse, gel, oil, heat protector, SPF, or shine spray... Curl Crème does it all.

ELIMINATES FRIZZ Locking in moisture and blocking out humidity, the Curl Crème soothes curls with organic chamomile, aloe and lavender extracts
ENHANCES CURLS Revolutionary “product memory” allows the hair to be worn up, moved around...even stretched... and it will return to the curl pattern it dried in with no crispy, flaky or greasy feeling
STRENGTHENS AS IT STYLES pH-balanced formula equalizes porosity, provides color protection and repairs damaged hair over time
ADDS INCREDIBLE SHINE All types of curly hair, even color-treated, damaged and porous textures will look shinier and healthier
PROVIDES UV AND HEAT PROTECTION You won’t need to apply additional primers or protectants
HIGHLY CONCENTRATED You’ll need less product over time, with continued use

THREE STEPS TO THE BEST. CURLS. EVER.

1. APPLY Starting with clean, soaking wet hair, apply to areas most likely to frizz. Begin at the ends and work upward toward the scalp, applying very little at the root.

2. STYLE Rake and scrunch large sections to encourage curl formation. If desired, twist face-framing curls around your finger (about one-inch sections, depending on hair density).

3. DRY Air dry or use a diffuser attachment to blow-dry, finishing with cool air. DO NOT touch the hair until it’s 100% dry! Once dry, if your curls look wet or crispy, just scrunch and shake out.
