Aluminum and Paraben Free Deodorant

by BlackBox Cosmetics!

A remarkable new innovation in personal care and deodorant protection!

Our developers set out to create a unique and powerful personal care product unlike any other in the industry and that is exactly what they did. 

"We took an otherwise unhealthy personal care product and made it a good source of valuable nutrients. It is packed with a combination of Vitamin E, Beta Carotene, energy-stimulating B-Complex Vitamins, and our proprietary combination of antioxidant-rich Botanical Extracts."

Developed in the form of a smooth and rich cream, it is packaged in our airless pump jar and can be quickly applied directly to your under arms. It's as easy as applying a luxurious lotion or cream to any other part of your body. However, this wonderful cream is packed with our proprietary combination of deodorizers and bacteria killers that offer protection for days, not hours. There is no white residue and is available in several scents loved by both women and men!

Most antiperspirant/deodorants contain harmful aluminum, parabens, and other toxic chemicals possibly linked to cancer and Alzheimer, but not Splash. We took out all the bad and added all the good in a way that no one else has ever done before.

BlackBox Cosmetics to Launch New Products in June

BlackBox Cosmetics is set to launch some amazing new products in the next month! Here are some previews of these fantastic products from our founder Kevin Evans. As always, our products are sulfate free, paraben free, cruelty free, Non GMO, and gluten free. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I'm incredibly excited about all of our new products. These products have been in development for quite some time due to repeated customer requests for them. I believe every single one is of the highest quality and better than any similar product on the market. Otherwise, they would still be in development. In comparison, we created products that are much higher in nutrient value and active ingredients, aloe-based, not water-based, and are toxin free. I can't say enough about our 11 new market entries, but for the sake of time, I have listed each with a short description. We will roll out each new product in 10-15 days.

In addition, I would like to introduce our new Product Line... Splash Bath Products. I think you will agree, it is a very fitting and fun addition to our family. This product line will focus on replacing toxic personal-use bath items that our customers use every day. Artisan Bath Bars are now part of the Splash Bath Products lineup. Blackbox Cosmetics SPLASH

One of the most requested products, since I started the company has been a sulfate & paraben-free body wash that is high foaming, skin-softening, and smells fantastic! JamaicaMeCrazy and Black Vanilla Body Washes are just that. Of course we didn't stop there. We packed our body washes with nourishing vitamins, anti-oxidant rich botanicals, and luxurious oils.

 

 

BlackBox Cosmetics Antiperspirant-deodorantJamaicaMeCrazy Antiperspirant/Deodorant

Black Vanilla Antiperspirant/Deodorant

More than anything, I love to create a product that takes on some of the worst toxic offenders in their respective categories. It has long been believed that antiperspirants containing aluminum could be linked to Alzheimer's disease and breast cancer. So it is very gratifying to introduce our twist-up solid antiperspirant/deodorant that works as well or better than the competitor's aluminum products, yet is natural and safe.

 

 

 

 

 

BlackBox Cosmetics Pink Lemonade exfoliating barPink Lemonade Exfoliating Body Bar

Our exhilarating Pink Lemonade scented exfoliating bath body bar fits perfectly into your hand and scrubs away dead skin cells, while moisturizing with thousands of tiny Jojoba beads, and Shea Butter. Like all of our products, it is sulfate & paraben-free. Although round, it is a large bar and weighs approximately 5 ounces. I have to say, it is my favorite of all the bath bars and we will be adding more choices of exfoliating body bars in coming months.

 

 

 

BlackBox Cosmetics Balance TonerBalance Face Prep/Toner in our large 9.25 ounce airless bottle is a wonderful combination of the finest ingredients and a multitude of potent nutrients (including advanced Vitamin C) and botanicals. I developed this product to be far and above better than any product available and I think our customers will be amazed at the results they will see from a face prep/toner. While our competitor's toners may leave your skin feeling greasy or even sticky, Balance contains special ingredients to reduce pore size, improve skin tone, and give your skin a wonderful soft satiny feel. Just one use and you will feel the difference. Over the course of a week or two, you will see a dramatic difference in pore size.

 

 

 

DEET free insect repellant

 

As mentioned in our last newsletter, we have created what we believe to be the best insect repellant available. Nature has provided us with some very powerful botanicals. In the proper combination they can be more effective than more toxic forms of repellants that contain DEET and parabens. Unlike other insect repellants (natural or otherwise) that smell awful, I can honestly say our insect repellant smells incredible. Knowing the botanicals I combined and what they smell like individually, it's almost hard to believe. Somehow the combination worked out better than I could have imagined and the scent is natural and amazing!

 

 

 

 

BlackBox Cosmetics JamaicaMeCrazy Body Lotion

Like our Black Vanilla Body Lotion, JamaicaMeCrazy body lotion is a combination of luxurious oils & nutrients. However, where Black Vanilla was created to be a light daily body lotion, JamaicaMeCrazy is perfect for after-sun and dry skin. Of course it was created on a base of aloe vera, which in itself is great for after-sun, but it also contains Shea Butter and other botanicals/nutrients to assist in recovering from sun exposure. For many years Shea Butter has been used in very hot climates to combat the effects of the sun and aging. I predict this product will be as popular as any in our product lines.

 

 

 

BlackBox Cosmetics Geniskin tonerGeniSkin Face Prep/Astringent is the perfect addition to our acne & problem skin product line. It will remove any oil and dirt missed after washing your face, in addition to infusing your skin with acne & bacteria-fighting Salicylic Acid and a host of vitamins and botanical extracts. Like all of our products, it is created on a base of aloe, not water. Special attention was given to developing a product that will even out skin tone and help reduce the size of your pores. Wintergreen and other essential oils will leave your skin feeling fresh and cool, while other nutrients give your skin a soft, satiny feel.

 

 

 

 

BlackBox Cosmetics Geniskin carbon scrubGeniSkin Black Coconut Carbon Scrub Coconut Carbon has been prized for centuries for its natural healing properties and gentle exfoliation. It can be used as part of a daily regimen to combat acne and problem skin such as eczema and minor skin rashes. It has an exotic coconut scent that we are sure customers will love. Many that have tested the product have expressed it is their favorite of our facial scrubs.

 

 

 

 

 

BlackBox Cosmetics Before and after Pro-5VuDu Hair Pro-5 Hair Reconstructor is an intensive hair-repair masque that utilizes our proprietary combination of 5 incredible proteins (including Keratin Amino Acids) and in high quantities. We developed the product without hydrolyzed wheat or soy protein and used richer/more luxurious forms of proteins. Also, this keeps the product gluten and GMO free. Our 5 protein blend, Moroccan Argan Oil, our botanical blend extracts, and hair-healthy nutrients will repair even the most damaged and over-processed hair. It is designed to penetrate the cuticle and add moisture to the cortex where it is needed most. Take a look at the Before/After below! This was after only two treatments using VuDu Hair Pro-5. The subject did not receive a new color treatment or cut before taking the after shot. Her hair was styled as normal.

  BlackBox Cosmetics Review - GeniSkin Acne System

by Khanh, see the full review and comments here!

Special thanks to Ms. Laura Mader!

Few days ago, I got a package of samples from BLACKBOX COSMETICS. I was excited to try it out.

Geni Skin from BLACKBOX COMESTICSis a system that treat problem skin and acne. Integrating 4 products including Facial Wash, Facial Scrub, Masque and Spot Treatment and Treatment Serum, the system can get rid of bacteria on face which makes acne and skin, as well as heal the skin.

The reason for the great success of GENISKIN is the combination of science and nature to create efficiency.

I strictly followed all the steps printed on the brochure. Not so hard but you should follow it right to get the best result in a short period.

I have used it for 3 days. Let me tell you, I can’t believe how much better my skin is now. Since I live in a tropic country where is too sunny, hot and humid, acne is a problem that haunts not only me but also a lot of people. From the day I started using GENISKIN, there is no new acne, the blackhead and whitehead disappeared a lot. GENISKINalso helps to minimize pores. This is incredibly amazing! I love my skin pretty much right now.

So if you guys are dealing with skin and acne problem, don’t hesitate to check out BLACKBOX COSMETICS. Read more: HTTP://MAIPHDKHANH.TUMBLR.COM/POST/47360331042/SPECIAL-THANKS-TO-MS-LAURA-MADER-FEW-DAYS-AGO#IXZZ2ILXO9SFL

SuperFruit Coconut Natural Cleansing Conditioner Available!

In addition to our other VuDu Hair Care Products, we are excited tointroduce our entry into the Cleansing Conditioner market made popular by Wen products. Once again, when you compare labels and try our product, we believe that those who prefer a one-step process to washing and conditioning their hair will be amazed with VuDu. Similar to Argan-Fig and Cupuacu-Mint... SuperFruit-Coconut is created on a base of aloe and botanical extracts (including Goldenseal, Calendula, Ho Shou Wu, and Saw Palmetto), and loaded with vitamins and superfruit nutrients (Acai, Goji, Mangosteen, Noni, and Pomegranate). Our cleansing agents are botanical and our conditioning elements start with extra virgin coconut oil. I have to say, this is another product that smells incredible.  Get yours October 6th when it is available!

BlackBox Cosmetics Launches Jojoba Tan Sunless Tanner

Jojoba Tan is NOW AVAILABLE and utilizes multiple tanning ingredients to give you the most natural looking and even tan possible without the sun. Created on a base of Aloe Juice and botanical extracts... this luxurious tanning lotion contains the highest quality jojoba, coconut, grapeseed, and avocado Oils to feed your skin. Unlike most sunless tanners that smell like strange chemicals or just plain awful. JojobaTan smells absolutely incredible!

BlackBox Cosmetics Commission Structure

BlackBox Cosmetics has done it again......they have found a way to increase their Independent Sales Associates commissions!  Due to the fact that after thousands of sales it was found our return rate is around 0.0008% (compared to 30-35% for many companies), they have made the following changes:

These bonus percentages are paid on your entire shopping cart sales...in addition to 20% commission already being paid. Now ISAs can earn a very achievable 45% commission/bonus on their shopping cart, while their sales organization commissions can grow down to the 8th level.  The BlackBox Cosmetics Commission Structure was already fantastic.....now it is unbeatable!

SuperFruit-Coconut vs. Wen

New Product Alert!!!!!  From BlackBox Cosmetics: "In addition to Cupuacu-Mint Shampoo & Conditioner, we are excited to introduce our entry into the Cleansing Conditioner market made popular by Wen products. Once again, when you compare labels and try our product, we believe that those who prefer a one-step process to washing and conditioning their hair will be amazed with VuDu.

BlackBox Cosmetics Ingredients: Awful Ingredients.....Not Used in BlackBox Cosmetics Products

Prune Pic
Prune Pic

BlackBox Cosmetics Ingredients-Or Lack Of (this is a good thing)

 Here is a list of ingredients that are NOT included in BlackBox Cosmetics products.  Remember, aloe vera is our #1 ingredient in ALL products.

***Note: This does not include the extensive list of toxic chemical preservatives used in most other products.

1. Sodium Laurel Sulfate - Also known as SLS, this popular ingredient is used in over a thousand cosmetic products. SLS's are used to create lather and suds, and are often needed to fill up the bottle of most skin care and hair care products. It's a strong degreaser that dries skin and hair and can cause contact eczema in some individuals. SLS's have been known to cause severe inflammation of the derma and epidermal tissue. This is probably the hardest skin care ingredient to avoid because it's so widely used in such high concentrations.

2. Mineral Oil - A liquid mixture of hydrocarbons obtained from petroleum, mineral oil can attract dirt and causes blackheads and eruptions. When you put mineral oil on your skin, it's like you're wrapping yourself in plastic wrap.

Your skin can't breathe! To be healthy, oxygen must be able to freely pass through the layers of your skin, expelling toxins, wastes, and sweat. By allowing toxins to build up in the skin, mineral oil contributes to free radical damage and speeds up the aging process.

Above top left is a photo comparison of a prune kept in mineral oil and another preserved in Aloe oil. The prune in mineral oil is still shriveled and wrinkled. The oil obviously cannot penetrate and is just sitting on the surface of the prune. The aloe prune is plump and hydrated because aloe is actually able to penetrate and moisturize.

3. Waxes - Paraffin, Beeswax, Candelilla Wax, Carnauba Wax - Waxes are widely used in cleansing creams, eye creams and moisturizers. Waxes clog pores, creating blackheads and white heads; they also smother the skin, which over a period of time creates an enlarged pore problem. Just think for a moment about these waxes. In solid form, waxes are thick, hard and waterproof. Yum!

4. Lanolin - A yellow, semisolid, fatty secretion from sheep’s wool is widely used in skin and beauty care products. It can cause an allergic reaction in some people, as well as enlarged pores. Lanolin is also used for moist wound healing, especially for breastfeeding mothers, and in this application I think lanolin is very effective. As an ingredient in skin cleansers or moisturizers, lanolin is very bad for the skin.

5. Petrolatum - This familiar, semisolid mixture of hydrocarbons is derived from petroleum. Literally, "paraffin jelly" or "petroleum jelly" -- it is not absorbed by the skin and suffocates the pores. All petrochemicals pollute our water and destroy marine life -- avoiding them is essential for humans, animals, fish, water, land and the air.

6. Acetone - Gas additive and harsh solvent used to dissolve Superglue. Found in significant amounts in nail polish remover, toners and astringents. Some side effects include kidney, liver, nerve damage and death.

7. Borax - Sodium Borate, Boric acid - Used in baby powders, bath powders, eye creams, skin fresheners, and protective creams as a preservative. Borax is rapidly absorbed by the skin, and despite repeated warnings from the American Medical Association, it's still widely used in skin care products.

8. Alcohol - Isopropyl Alcohol, SD Alcohol 40, Ethyl Alcohol - Alcohols dissolve the body’s natural moisture and strips the skin of its natural protection, leaving it vulnerable to infection. Alcohols also destroy the skin's natural pH balance and since they absorb water rapidly, alcohols speed up wrinkling of the skin. Drying alcohols can also cause the skin to lose its contour (similar to a balloon losing air). Once applied, these alcohols make your eyes water and your skin turn red, not very good selling points.

9. FD&C Dyes and Pigments - When this abbreviation precedes the name of a color, it means that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has certified it as safe for use in drugs and cosmetics, but not food. FD&C colors are usually synthetic, coal tar colors; they’re toxic and should be avoided completely. The worst is Red #4, a color pigment proven to be dangerous to the bladder and adrenal glands.

10. Synthetic Fragrance - This is a blanket term used by many manufactures to hide thousands of dangerous ingredients at once. Because so many chemicals can be hidden under the label, most are toxic, cancer-causing substances

BlackBox Cosmetics Product Size

Where do I find the product size for BlackBox Cosmetics Products? I have had a lot of people ask me lately where to find BlackBox Cosmetics product size information on the website.  The size of products is on the very bottom of the information section once you click the product in the shopping cart, however it is not listed on the Kits section.  This is illustrated below.

BlackBox Cosmetics Product Size

Also on average my products last about 6-8 weeks with daily use.  The facewash tends to last me a bit longer and always at least 8 weeks.

New astringent coming soon! BlackBox Cosmetics New Products

Under the Restoration Cosmeceutical line, we have an anti-oxidant astringent called "Splash" near development completion. This product will be packaged in a unique airless jar that will dispense product when a cotton ball is pressing in the center. We believe our BlackBox Cosmetics customers will love this product!  Keep an eye on this blog to learn about BlackBox Cosmetics New Products that are being launched.

Here's to 2013!

I always love this time of year and the excitement of hope and possibilities it brings!!! It's been a crazy last 6 weeks and I am looking forward to getting back on a schedule and refocusing on my goals with BlackBox Cosmetics. With the VuDu hair care line set to lauch this month (was delayed due to Hurricane Sandy) the possibilities are endless! Samples will be available from me soon for this great organic hair care line, so don't forget to make your request on my home page. As I sat down to do my taxes for my business today, it took me a total of 1.5 hours due to the ease of the way the company's structure is set up compared to another company I had been with. I don't have to keep track of credit card processing fees, no order forms that I manually had to enter (it's all done on the internet by the customer), no host rewards to keep track of, etc. I was reenergized after finishing this task because it reminded me of how I LOVE BlackBox Cosmetics and the simplicity of the business structure. I did not reach my goal of Independent Sales Director like I orginally set out for in 2012, but I was very close and will definitely achieve it in 2013. Goals are not set to make you feel like a failure if you don't reach them, they are set to keep you reaching forward. An original quote by me!

Happy New Year's to all and best to you in 2013!!

VuDu Hair Care

Blackbox is launching our new hair care line-VuDu-in just weeks!  Beautiful hair begins with vibrant, healthy hair follicles that are being fed a rich diet of vitamins, minerals, and botanicals. Unlike most hair-care products, we are placing great emphasis on the nutrient content of our hair-care line. Of course there are so many more factors that go into making an incredible hair-care product and treating the hair itself is a huge part of the equation. Nonetheless, BlackBox Cosmetics' products are unique. We will not create a product like every other manufacturer. We believe long-term use should make an impact at the cellular level... resulting in thicker, fuller, and healthier hair.  Contact me if you are interested in learning more laurmader@blackboxcosmetics.com.  Samples will be available!

VuDu Hair Care Coming Soon

VuDu Hair Care will be coming soon. The first of this line will be the Argan-Fig Shampoo and Conditioner. Watch for the official launch soon! Argan-Fig Shampoo Containing large quantities of the highest quality hair-care ingredients, vitamins, minerals, botanicals, and Argan oil... Argan Fig Shampoo is the most luxurious shampooing experience ever developed. Unlike every shampoo on the market that contains over 50% water, Argan Fig was created on a base foundation of hair and scalp-healthy aloe juice and botanical extracts. This creates dense, concentrated, luxurious foam that cannot be experienced with any other shampoo available. Hair color is protected and shine is vitalized with Golden Seal and other rare ingredients, while Moroccan Argan oil gives your hair a noticeable healthy and manageable feel. Beautiful hair starts with a healthy scalp. Considerable attention was given to feeding the scalp with large quantities of Vitamins and Minerals found in all BlackBox Cosmetics' products. Argan-Fig Shampoo is a a proprietary blend of ingredients and a development process that utilizes the conditioning benefits of Moroccan Argan oil without weighing your hair down.

Argan-Fig Conditioner A super silky conditioner designed to make your hair soft and manageable with excellent comb through ability... without weighing it down. Like Argan-Fig Shampoo, our conditioner contains large quantities of the highest quality hair-care ingredients, vitamins, minerals, botanicals, amino acids, and Argan oil. Argan-Fig Conditioner was created on a base foundation of hair and scalp-healthy aloe juice and botanical extracts. Over 10 different botanical extracts were used to create this amazing conditioner, so your hair will be repaired, revitalized, and incredibly soft and healthy. Hair color is protected and shine is vitalized with Golden Seal and other rare ingredients, while Moroccan Argan oil gives your hair a noticeable healthy and manageable feel. Beautiful hair starts with a healthy scalp. Considerable attention was given to feeding the scalp with large quantities of Vitamins and Minerals found in all BlackBox Cosmetics' products.

GeniSkin Acne Treatment System

GeniSkin Acne Treatment SystemGeniSkin Acne Treatment System is here! This line is great for those with acne prone and problem skin. Beautiful packaging, natural and organic products, and effective as can be! The GeniSkin Acne Kit is the most complete & advanced acne and problem skin fighting system ever created. It is a combination of four treatments that use a synergistic approach to help users obtain beautiful clear skin. The system is designed to eliminate the bacteria that causes skin problems and heal the skin with advanced nutrients and botanicals. Like all BlackBox Cosmetics' extraordinary products, science was merged with nature to develop the most effective products in the world. The GeniSkin System includes: Face Wash: The GeniSkin face wash is loaded with bacteria killers, salicylic acid, vitamins, and botanicals. It is packaged in airless light-blocking pump bottles to protect these vital compounds for the highest effectiveness. It removes oil and bacteria buildup while leaving your face feeling cool, clean, and refreshed. Our face wash is scented with hints of peppermint, spearmint, & tea tree oil.

Treatment Serum: Our treatment serum is unlike any poduct you have ever seen or used before. Based on the same skin-healing technology and nutrients that made our Infusion AM age-reversing serum so popular, we dramatically raised the bar in the acne and problem skin category. GeniSkin serum is loaded with various forms of bacteria killers that are designed to reach deep into skin tissue to kill the bacteria where it develops. During this process, GeniSkin serum infuses the skin with high levels of Vitamin C and other healing nutrients... including the new advanced Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate and our super anti-oxidant formula. Users report seeing an almost immediate reduction in breakouts and an improvement in their skin condition.

Facial Scrub: At BlackBox Cosmetics, we have always believed that exfoliating your skin is vital to good skin tone and quality. In regard to problem skin, exfoliating helps keep pores clear of dirt and oil that can create blockage, which in turn creates bacteria and breakouts. Mild daily exfoliation with our organic grain microdermabrasion scrub is perfect for keeping your pores free and clear, yet gentle enough for those with an active breakout. Our daily scrub was designed to be the most effective exfoliator ever developed. Using microdermabrasion ingredients and techniques, you will be amazed at how soft your skin feels after only one application. Each treatment will assist in reducing visible scar tissue and large pores, while healing and regenerating new healthy skin tissue.

Face Masque & Spot Treatment: Face masques are often overlooked by many problem skin product manufacturers. Yet regular use of toxin and bacteria removing masques can be extremely beneficial in your effort to achieve clear skin. GeniSkin Face Masque contains three forms of special sea algae harvested from pristine waters. These algaes are known for their ability to remove and eliminate toxins and bacteria. It contains vitamins, aloe, bacteria eliminating botanicals, the finest calcium-bentonite clay, and other special compounds. GeniSkin Masque dramatically reduces inflamation and leaves skin smooth and soft. This is an important benefit for those individuals that wear makeup or use a cover stick.

Glycolic Acid vs Hydroquinone to Reverse Sun Damage and Decrease Hyperpigmentation

BlackBox Cosmetics Revive gx

Glycolic Acid vs Hydroquinone to Reverse Sun Damage and Decrease Hyperpigmentation

Glycolic Acid and Hydroquinone have both been regarded as effective ingredients to help lighten hyperpigmentation and reverse sun damage.  But which is most effective while still being safe?

Glycolic acid is a natural ingredient derived from sugar cane, though it is now often made synthetically. It falls into the set of ingredients called AHA's, or alpha hydroxy acids. Glycolic acid is probably the most common alpha hydroxy acid and has the reputation of being one of the safest forms of alpha hydroxy acid.  Glycolic acid is a common peeling agent used in chemical peels and used at a strength of 30-70%, while over the counter strengths are generally less than 10%.  Since glycolic acid is an exfoliator, it safely removes the outer layer of dead skin cells on the surface your skin, bringing fresh new skin to the surface.  Perhaps the biggest danger of a glycolic peel is burning the skin at high concentrations.

Hydroquinone is a strong inhibitor of melanin production, meaning that it prevents skin from making the substance responsible for skin color. Hydroquinone does not bleach the skin but lightens it, and can only disrupt the synthesis and production of melanin hyperpigmentation.  Despite its effectiveness, it has been banned in some countries (e.g. Europe) because of cancer risk fears.

BlackBox Cosmetics, a natural skin care company that creates toxin free personal care products, recently released Revive Gx which is a glycolic acid product that contains a total of 5 AHAs in a proprietary combination and concentration of 10%.  Founder of BlackBox Cosmetics, Kevin Evans, says the most common skin condition improvements with Revive Gx have been:

1) A drastic reduction in fine lines, scars, sun damage related dark spots and pigmentation, and pore size.

2) Improved skin tone, clarity, evenness, and reduction in acne related breakouts. Many customers have reported noticing a difference in how their skin looks upon wakening.

So, while hydroquinone is highly effective, the cons may outweigh the pros and there are other safe alternatives available.
