Sweet, Healing, Organic Almond Oil- Real Anti-Aging Results! -Part II

As we discussed in our earlier Post, organic Sweet Almond Oil is just one of the best organic, healing ingredients found today in all-natural skin care.  This sometimes-overlooked essential oil can even slow down the skin's aging process and reverse previous damage caused by harmful UV rays. It nourishes the skin and promotes a natural and healthy glow. The oil is also used to reduce dark circles under the eyes - it's truly a warrior against the signs of aging.

Sweet Almond Oil is an excellent skin emollient and moisturizer. It prevents peeling and cracking, which results from over-dry skin and aging.  It also works to relieve minor skin irritations, inflammation and itchiness.  Another of its natural qualities is that it is not absorbed too quickly, and so provides prolonged soothing of the skin. 

This healing oil from Nature's bounty effectively moisturizes the skin, increases skin's elasticity and can prevent the appearance of scars and wrinkles. Almond oil's natural Vitamin E content works to ‘plump’ out the skin in areas likely to develop premature or smaller wrinkles.  It can reduce the ugly appearance of acne and acne scars by balancing the moisture in the skin, softening the scars and evening out skin tone, which noticeably reduces the redness and appearance of the scars.

Do any of these incredible benefits sound appealing? It's easy to get the healing benefits of Organic Sweet Almond Oil -just add the essential oil, or skin care products containing it, to your daily skin care routine today. Then watch your skin change- to younger-looking, more vital & firmer, with better tone, in just 2 weeks!

Anti-Aging Secrets of Organic Sandalwood Oil in Natural Skin Care, Part I

Organic Sandalwood is a precious and relatively expensive essential oil, mostly because the East Indian Sandalwood Tree is practically extinct. However, the wood oil's amazing array of beneficial properties certainly justifies its cost. It's well-known aromatic qualities include calming, centering, relieves exhaustion, grounding, stress-reducing and it's an aphrodisiac.  

In addition, this is an excellent botanical oil to help eliminate wrinkles, fine lines and the visible signs of aging.  Organic Sandalwood oil has the great anti-aging benefit of naturally promoting or encouraging skin hydration and moisture.  It is also very effective for cleansing the skin, and its earthy, rich, sensual fragrance is delightful to add to facial and massage oils, aftershaves, bath oils, moisturizers and creams. 

Perhaps the most important skin benefit organic Sandalwood offers is its wonderfully emollient properties, highly effective in healing dry, chapped, sensitive and inflamed skin.  To revitalize dehydrated, dry skin, simply apply a warm compress to the afflicted area.  Then blend 10 drops of pure East Indian Sandalwood essential oil with 6 drops of Geranium and 30 ml Sweet Almond oil; then use to gently massage into the affected area. 

More to come on the many anti-aging and skin-healing qualities of this sensual, aromatic natural, botanical wood oil in Part II of this Blog- stay tuned!

Organic Sweet Almond Oil is just one of the best organic
healing remedies found today in all-natural skin care.  The essential oil is pale yellow in color and loaded with proteins, glucodide and nourishing vitamins and minerals.  It is extracted from raw sweet almond nut kernels and then pressed, which produces a fine oil that is often used as a “carrier oil” or as an emollient in many  massage oils and skin care products.

This all-natural, botanical oil is non-greasy and well known in natural, organic, green skin and body care for its nutritive content.  The oil is rich in Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, E, D and K, all of which are highly recommended for healthy skin and hair, and it contains Zinc, Magnesium and Potassium as well.  Organic, Sweet Almond Oil has a warming effect when applied to the skin and works to reduce muscle tension as well as to increase blood circulation.

The healing benefits of this all-natural, essential oil include:
In organic beauty and skincare, Sweet Almond Oil is an absolute gem of skin-softening benefits and organic treatment for skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and dry, itchy skin. The oil deeply penetrates skin layers, without leaving a greasy, oily feeling.

In addition to its softening and healing qualities, studies have shown that Organic Sweet Almond Oil protects from the sun's harmful UV rays that cause wrinkling and other signs of aging.  This amazing essential oil can even slow down the skin's aging process and can reverse previous damage caused by harmful UV rays. It nourishes the skin and promotes a natural and healthy glow. 

It is also used to reduce dark circles under the eyes - truly a warrior against the signs of aging. It is truly worth trying all-natural skin care and facial care products that incorporate Organic Sweet Almond Oil as an integral anti-aging ingredient. After all, it is one of the best!

Nature is Giving...

Give a more Beautiful Life to the Children of 
Paraclets Orphanage in Haiti, 
Give Yourself Naturally Beautiful Skin!

Children are all too often the unwitting victims of poverty, political unrest, civil & natural disasters and disease. Following the earthquake disaster in Haiti in 2010, many, many young children have been orphaned, are alone, abused and have been left to try to survive on their own resources in the streets of Kenscoff, Haiti. Kenscoff is a town in the West Department of Haiti, located in the mountainous country, some 10 KM southeast of the capital of Port-au-Prince.

Paraclets Foundation is a Non-profit, charitable, Christian and Humanitarian-based-Organization Orphanage, that provides education and training in their state-of-the-art facilities to poverty-stricken orphans and underprivileged children, who previously lived  on the streets of Kenscoff and had no access to resources or services, and no family. -"We have taken the responsibility of educating them as per our capabilities. Our organization has achieved measurable success during the years, in providing basic education and life skills training, which is vital to their survival. 

-The organization is committed to reducing poverty (of) orphans in Haiti,  by breaking destructive cycles in exchange (for) new, positive opportunities. With a dedicated management team and a diverse group of volunteers, Paraclets Foundation is determined to establish facilities for housing and hosting, educational and training centers, healthcare and social services, feeding programs, and spiritual and cultural activities.  

....before the massive quake (in) 2010, we (cared for) 33 kids; now we have 110 children, plus our school is in 7th grade this year- what a blessing! We are requesting assistance... to expand this program and to help more needy children, so that we can increase the strength of our programs and expand our living facilities and classrooms." -G. Marc, Director 

Paraclets Foundation Facebook Page: 

Our Family at COSMETIQUES LAUDUNTM is very pleased to announce we are joining forces with Paraclets Foundation, in our "Season of Giving," in support of the Orphanage's children in need.

We will contribute 10% of our total sales for November & December 2015 directly to Paraclets Foundation to provide food, clothing, healthcare, education and general support for all programs for the children at the Orphanage. We are very excited to be supporting the Foundation, and we hope many of our customers will join us in this effort. There is no better cause than helping and serving children in need, wherever they are located in our world, and we look forward to being able to give 10% of our sales revenue to Paraclets Foundation to continue to care for orphaned children.

Makeup & Beauty Artistry Tips for Hallowe'e'n

There are so many ideas on the internet and choices available today for looking fabulous for Halloween, that it may be difficult to decide which look you'd prefer to try.  We've come up with several shown here, that particularly impressed us. We hope that you love one of these enough to try it as a new Halloween look, if you're up to the challenge this year!
These beauty & make-up looks for different costumes vary from fairly simple, but stylish, make-up changes to complex, more theatrical-looking costume make-up. Professionally done make-up and hair-styling has become a big business at Hallowe'en, and depending upon what kind of party you may be attending & how impressive you want your look and costume to be, you may decide to go for this more expensive option.

Many beauty salons offer these services for special Halloween make-up and hairstyles, and you can check with your own special salon to see if they do.

Whatever look you decide on for this Halloween, make sure you properly remove the make-up from your face, as soon as you get home from your party.  We recommend a gentle, botanical-based facial cleanser that will easily take off all eye make-up as well. If you haven't yet tried our COQUETTE- Creamy Facial Cleanser, it is perfect for daily, gentle cleansing of your skin as well as for tougher jobs- like removing theatrical Halloween make-up! It is very easy to use & can be applied either with your fingertips, or with a washcloth. Make sure to rinse well with cool water afterward. Follow with our Rose Water Frost Facial Toner for optimum skin conditioning and toning. 

Have a great time this Halloween, and don't forget to take care of your beautiful skin, after the festivities are over. The Cosmetiques LAUDUN TM Family wishes you & yours a very HAPPY & Safe HALLOWE'EN!!

Hallowe'en is a celebration of Autumn, of the Harvest and Tricks or Treats for children dressed up like Spirits -or their favorite Star Wars character!

SAVE 20% OFF all Week on our entire line of Organic & Natural Skin Care.... that's on Everything- Just Use the Code in the picture below!

Now, we thought we'd share a fun bit of Celtic Apple Magic tradition with you, in the spirit of the holiday, Hallowe'en or Samhein (pronounced, Sow' - an):
At the spiritual heart of the Celtic "oldworld," there grows an apple tree whose fruit bears magical powers. Legends of old speak of heroes crossing the sea to the west to locate this magical country, known in 
Britain as Avalonand in Ireland as Emhain Abhlach (Evan Avlach.)  During Samhain, the apple harvest is in, and ancient fireside games, such as apple-bobbing, known as apple-dookin’ in Scotland, are commemorate the heroes voyage across the sea to claim the prize - the magic apple - for themselves. 

The Celtic Tradition of Dookin' for Apples  

Half-fill a large, preferably wooden, tub placed
on the floor, with water. Tumble plenty of freshly harvested apples into the water. Ask one person to stir them vigorously with a long,   rod of hazel wood, ash or any other tree sacred to the Celts, or with a wooden spoon. 

Then each player takes turns kneeling on the floor, bending over the floating apples in the tub, trying to grab the apples with their teeth as they go bobbing around in the tub. Each person gets three attempts before it's the next person's turn. It's lovely to have a roaring fire nearby, either outside in a traditional bonfire or inside at your fireplace, so the players can dry off while eating their prize apple.

The Secret of Anti-Aging with Organic Neroli Oil

What do you know about organic "Neroli"oil? Well, it's actually one in the large family of more common Citrus oils. The Duchess of Bracciano and princess of Nerola, Italy, Anne Marie Orsini, actually introduced the essence of the bitter orange tree as an "haute couture" fragrance, by using it to perfume her gloves and her bath in the late 1600's. The term "Neroli" has been used to describe this all-natural essential oil ever since. 

Neroli has a refreshing, spicy aroma with sweet and flowery notes.  The blossoms are gathered by hand in late April to early May. The organic essential oil is made using water distillation, because the blossom is too fragile for steam distillation.
Essential oil of Neroli is known as one of the best natural oils for anti-aging in organic skin & body care. The relaxing qualities go deep into the skin cells, and this oil is especially beneficial for sensitive skin. It is reported to have a restoring effect on the skin, due to its ability to stimulate the growth of new and healthy cells - Wow- Excellent protection against the visible signs of aging! 

Including organic Neroli oil in your daily skincare routine helps to rejuvenate the cells and improve the look of the skin. It is an excellent way to clean and tone the skin and even helps to heal blemishes. It helps skin to stretch and therefore is commonly used during pregnancy to avoid stretch marks. It can also be used to improve the look of scars.

Organic Neroli oil is ideal to use for people with sensitive skin. It is non-irritating and does not cause many common side effects, whereas other essential oils are more potent and therefore unsuitable for sensitive skin. In addition, the anti-bacterial properties in the oil aid in fighting skin diseases.   One of the biggest benefits of Neroli oil is that it helps maintain moisture balance in the skin and keeps the skin supple and soft.

Other healing qualities of natural Neroli oil include it's use as a sedative and overall tonic for the nervous system, and its benefits for most stress-related disorders of an emotional nature. The oil is reported to treat heart palpitations, to increase circulation, relieve insomnia, reduce anxiety/ nervousness and has even been reported to successfully treat nervous depression and shock. When you consider all the combined amazing health benefits of Neroli oil, it becomes clear that this essential oil is a must-have for your skincare regimen and natural medicine cabinet, as well.

Beauty Secrets of Organic Plaintain Extract- Part II

We are pleased to bring you Part II of this Blog about the many extraordinary healing properties of Organic Plaintain leaf!  To briefly revisit, Organic Plantain leaf is a very healing plant that's usually thought to be a weed.  This herb  is a plentiful source of vitamins C, A, and K, and well over 200 species of organic Plantain are found in the world.  Plaintain Major, a broad-leaved or common plantain (the kind we use in our "Sweet Feet," Botanical Foot Repair Creme), and Plaintain Lanceolata, narrow-leaved plantain, or ribwort, are the two most common species to North America.

The juice of organic Plantain Leaf is, in fact, antibacterial and very soothing when applied to burns. Similar to organic Comfrey, it contains Allantoin, an anti-inflammatory phytochemical that speeds wound healing and stimulates the growth of new skin cells.

This truly healing plant is probably growing in your back yard or along the driveway and is easy to harvest.  Just pick the fresh leaves and macerate them in a high-powered blender or food processor.   Then either apply them directly to the skin irritation, or use them to make a wonderfully healing ointment for all types of common skin rashes.  The picked leaves can also be dried and later steeped in boiling water for five minutes to make a soothing tea for the digestive tract & nerves.  Organic Plaintain's healing qualities include as an anodynea mild astringent, an effective diuretic , and  styptic/ stops bleeding.

Effective remedies for common rashes, poison ivy, allergic reactions, flea and insect bites and diaper rash can easily be created at home and treated with Plaintain leaf.  An ointment made with the leaf will also effectively treat minor burns and speed natural healing.  It's a great organic addition to your in-home First-Aid kit!

Natural, organic skin care remedies and products are far more protective and healing to skin than common store brands or cosmetics.   Purchase organic skin care and beauty products that include Plaintain Leaf, and avoid potentially damaging the skin with harsh chemicals, dyes and additives.  Heal, refresh & rejuvenate your skin instead with this powerful anti-inflammatory gem from nature!

Portland, OR- October 20, 2015Cosmetiques LaudunTM announced on Tuesday that they have entered into a new distribution partnership with Threshold Enterprises, Ltd., a national wholesale distributor of dietary supplements and health care products to the natural foods industry and health care professionals, based in Scotts Valley, California. Threshold has been recognized as one of California’s largest manufacturers and distributors of nutritional supplements and other natural products, offers more than 300 brands and 15,000 products distributed throughout all 50 states, as well as in international markets. The company’s focus is on providing holistic healthcare products to their broad range of customers, to achieve and support optimum wellness. Threshold boasts more than 30 years of experience in the natural foods and natural health care industries and has received multiple awards for the quality of its products, outstanding customer service & educational-based marketing, to name just a few.

The announcement was made by Anna Laudun Beauboeuf, Founder /CEO, of Cosmetiques LaudunTM , a successful crafter & manufacturer of organic and natural skin care / body care products, based in Pembroke Pines, Florida and Portland, Oregon.  Beauboeuf announced that the strategic decision to launch a partnership with Threshold is in direct line with the company’s short-term goals to broaden their market share by creating an international distribution network by 2016.

Anna Laudun Beauboeuf, Founder/CEO, stated that Cosmetiques LaudunTM produces a line of products unlike any in today’s market.  “Both eco- friendly and organic /all-natural, our products have a rich French-Caribbean heritage that pampers the skin with unique botanical ingredients that came from my Grandmother, Jeanne’s, extensive garden.  We provide our customers with skin care solutions that are free of toxic chemicals and eco-friendly, and very healing and effective.  The company’s primary focus is to create basic, fresh products that satisfy the most discerning customer.” 

Cosmetiques LaudunTM was founded by Anna Laudun Beauboeuf, CEO, grand-daughter of Jeanne Gabriel Laudun, whose nearly century-old beauty formulations are the foundation of the company’s skin & body care lines.  Beauboeuf further noted, “the ‘Cosmetiques Laudun TM’ organic & natural skin care line is based on beauty formulations that my grandmother created.  Each product is created with ingredients that came straight from her garden; when I was a child, I would go out with my grandmother each morning into her garden, where we would gather different herbs, flowers, and plants.

Then she would teach me how to hand-craft her incredible ‘beauty crème,’ foot creams, soaps & body scrubs from the plants we had picked that morning. Our products address a variety of common skin problems, such as dry skin, signs of aging, acne & eczema, like skin care products commonly found in stores today. However, unlike our competitors, we use ingredients that are completely free of synthetic chemicals, paraben, dyes, and the like.  They are simple and effective, completely toxin-free and absolutely not harmful to the environment.”

Beauboeuf works in close collaboration with her Director of Sales & Marketing, Nancy S.
