The New Age

THE TRUTH ABOUT WELL AGING

New from INtelligent Nutrients - available in May. Pre-order now!
REVITALIZING MOISTURE CRÈMEand DETOXIFYING GLYCOLIC GEL

Older skin is slower skin:
As we age, our skin’s production of key elements slows, leading to signs of “aging”:
• Urea - 7% of skin’s natural moisture factor
• Collagen and elastin - loss of firmness, resilience and contour
• Hyaluronic acid – loss of elasticity and fullness, leading to lines

Conventional anti-aging actually ages skin:
• Aggressive treatments and conventional ingredients can create a vicious aging cycle
• Excessive exfoliation & retinols weaken skin & lower resilience
• Increased sun and environmental sensitivity can create greater damage
• Aggressive ingredients that create an aging inflammatory response under the surface, where aging really happens

Two new super-fuel treatments – Plant Stem Cell Science REVITALIZING MOISTURE CRÈME and DETOXIFYING GLYCOLIC GEL.

Plant Stem Cells, Intellimune, and Plant and Algae Bioac…

Full Circle

We are thrilled to have some of our 3waybeauty products a part of Full Circle Fundraising.

The women of Full Circle Fundraising want to redefine the school fundraising model and we think it is a brilliant concept!

After writing out too many checks for stale chocolates, old cookie dough and plastic kitchen gadgets shipped in from around the country (and mostly manufactured outside the USA), they took their passion for local products and created a smart program that combines supporting non-profits with local business owners.

They are two moms whose passion to improve fundraising marries their personal and professional lives. Pam Hoye, mother of two young boys and sales and event professional and Sara Soli, mother of two young girls and marketing and event professional. Combined, the have more than 39 years of marketing, sales and event experience. They have created products and events in this market for media companies and brought them to life from ideation to implementation.

Tea Time

Excerpt from American Spa Magazine. Written by Nicole Altavilla - highlighted products contain tea.

 There is no doubt about it, tea is a hot commodity. More than 158 million Americans drink tea—the second most consumed drink in the world—on any given day, according to The Tea Association of the USA. What’s more, total sales of tea have increased 16 percent over the last five years and are expected to continue to grow. This growth is due to an increasing interest in the healthy properties of tea and also the availability of new varieties. And tea isn't just for sipping anymore. It’s also gaining popularity in the beauty industry, as tea-based skincare products and spa treatments steam up treatment menus and retail areas alike.

When ingested, the health benefits of the steeped leaves are just about anyone’s cup of tea. According to various studies, tea is anti-aging and can help prevent allergies, lower blood pressure and the risk of breast cancer, and maintain healthy cholesterol…

Making Our Mark

Thanks to Liz Sawyer at the Minneapolis Star Tribune for the interview and featuring the 3rd annual HAMMS Event.

Crowdfunding event in St. Paul helps entrepreneurs find market for local products.

Crysten Nesseth’s father taught her how to weld when she was 8 years old. It was a skill he passed down from his manufacturing business, and one she failed to pick back up until graduating college in 2012. More here.

and made it into a Stormsisters lipstick display.

That black stain? Made from a combo of black tea and vinegar. Yup, that's right!

Now our vegan and sustainably-sourced, pretty little girls have a lovely new home.
