We love to hear from our customers.  Sometimes we get feedback on how the products they ordered are working out for them.  Other times, we get questions about what might best suit their specific needs.  Here are a few we thought we'd share with you:

1.       What's the best sunscreen for vitiligo?

If you have vitiligo, your skin may be extra sensitive. For this reason, a physical sunscreen, like [Link Removed] , which are made for sensitive skin. The best way is to try them and see which suits your skin.

2.       What is a barrier cream?

As the body's largest organ, one of the skin's primary functions is to act as a barrier against the constant assaults by external irritants and bacteria.  When the skin is dry and cracked, the body is vulnerable to contaminants, irritants, viruses and other harmful substances.  A barrier cream helps the skin maintain its strong protective capability by repairing and healing the skin.  Look for creams containing ceramides and fatty acids like [Link Removed]  to replenish the skin's natural barrier function.

3.       Can I use AHA every day?

Gentle [Link Removed] .

4.       Your website lists the ingredients in the sunscreen, but I was wondering about specific amounts.

Thanks for your question. When concentrations of active ingredients are listed by the manufacturer, we are able to pass this on to our customers. However, not all manufacturers list concentrations as it is not always a legal necessity. Additionally, some companies safeguard concentrations of their active ingredients as they like to keep their formulations a 'secret recipe' to make it more difficult for competitors to copy the formula.

5.       The [Link Removed] is a bit darker than I expected.  Can I mix it with the non-tinted one to lighten the color a bit? Please advise.

Yes, absolutely, you can mix the [Link Removed]  Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Fluide Extreme with the tinted version and blend it to best match your skin tone. We would not, however, recommend mixing a sunscreen product with liquid makeup as this could change the effectiveness of your sunscreen.

Got a question?  Give us a call;  we'd be happy to help.
