We all now the damage bad lotions and do...Banana Boat, LA Express right?

We just found a article called Mineral Oil Facts and also researched whitening and bleaching agents.

Mineral Oil or another name is petolium is a by-product of gasoline. So if using this it is just drying out your skin. When we tell our clients to check their products they use at home, soaps, mosturizers, shower gels etc...this is a very common ingredient found in almost every product. This is found in even very well known products. Our mosturizer sales have recently sky rocketed!!

We also researched ingredients of whitening and/or bleaching agents. Search the web for this and you will be amazed how many of these ingredients there are. Then look at your own products at home, you will be amazed. Did you know Banana Boat has a whitening agent in it? So what do you think a person tanning is doing when using a product that contains these ingredients?

When we pass out this information to our clients they check their products and if they have that lotion with them ask us to throw it away for them, totally disgusted. They go home check all their products and return to purchase our products totally disgusted with what they found and how it was found in almost everything they use.

Homework is the key! If customers knows this information do you think they will continue to purchase lotions from Walmart, Shopko and forth? Our clients no longer do...

For those client who can not get a tan or hold a tan and they assume it is the tanning beds. 9 out of 10 of them when we tell them to check their products...it is because of the products they use at home.

Yes, I am curious too as to what kind of "whitening" ingredients too look out for if you wouldn't mind sharing with us.
