W.S. Badger Company launched sunscreens for kids with an SPF of 30. The easy-to-apply, non-greasy lotion and cream smell like Tangerine & Vanilla. Both formulas are non-nano, hypoallergenic, 100% certified natural, and contain certified organic ingredients (86% for the lotion and 95% for the cream). The cream is water resistant for 40 minutes.

DeVita Natural Skin Care’s all-natural mineral makeup line, ab-so-lute minerals, was designed to enhance natural beauty without harsh or toxic chemicals. Two new products join the PETA-certified vegan and paraben-free line: Prime Corrective (a lightweight non-greasy makeup primer that refracts light instead of absorbing it) and definedLINES (a fast-drying liquid eyeliner that comes in black, brown and blue).

Joining the five-product Very Clear line is derma e’s Very Clear Astringent. With an Anti-Blemish Complex that combines salicylic acid, tea tree, willow bark, rosewood, lavender and chamomile, this astringent helps clear and prevent blemishes, reduce the look of pores, remove impurities and restore skin’s pH balance, leaving it healthy, balanced and smooth.

SoapBox Soaps LLC’s organic bar soaps come in three scents and balance hardness, lather quality and moisturizing properties. Scents include lavender, oatmeal clove and lemongrass. For every bar of SoapBox soap purchased, the company donates a bar to a person in need.

For some, growing old gracefully means proudly sporting strands of gray and championing laugh lines as signs of a life well lived. Others, however, take a “turn back the clock” approach. For this group, products that support healthy skin and hair are must-haves in their lives. While they won’t stop the hands of time, natural age-support products can help keep an age-conscious customer looking and feeling great.

Whether your customers come in with Shirley Temple curls, a slicked-back pompadour or a multicolored mohawk, how their hair looks and feels says a lot about who they are. When it comes to hair loss, thinning and damage, both men and women depend on all-natural ingredients to put the personality and life back into their hair.

Badger has created three certified organic varieties of oil to repair, balance and restore dry and damaged hair and scalp. Try jojoba oil for dry scalp, argan oil for dry and damaged hair or the seabuckthorn oil for all hair types. The oils come packaged in a 2-ounce glass bottle with a pump top. All of the products are USDA-certified organic and not tested on animals.

New from Mill Creek Botanicals is Novacell, a line of anti-aging products that uses plant stem cell rejuvenating solutions. All the products in this line—smoothing eye balm, brightening facial serum, restoring night cream, refreshing facial cleanser and moisturizing day lotion—contain Mung Bean stem cell extract, peptides and antioxidants.

Dr. Willard’s introduces Dr. Willard’s Aloe Gel, a daily moisturizer, sun burn reliever and after or pre-shave conditioner. This product incorporates Dr. Willard’s original nutrient-rich water and pulp of the aloe plant to make a rehydrating moisturizer.
