Wrinkles, beware – there’s a new protocol in town.
Skinn Cosmetics introduces a dynamic trio of active ingredients and cutting edge technology to treat those deep-set, stubborn wrinkles: Deep Wrinkle Protocol System.CEO, Founder and the man behind all things Skinn Cosmetics, Dimitri James, says the Deep Wrinkle Protocol trio is the result of Skinn’s deepest research into dermal anti-aging technology, proven to dramatically reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles.
Collagenesis Deep Wrinkle Protocol Line Peel Solution
This resurfacing solution boasts a multi-fruit acid complex, cocktailed with Mandelic Acid, White Tea Extract and Vitamin C, to exfoliate, resurface and help obliterate the appearance of deep lines. The solution also features Luremin, a more effective, next generation non-retinoid ingredient that is more effective than retinol at line reducing, yet non-irritating and non-inflaming. This controlled-release peel is designed for concentrated areas on the face to gently resurface and exfoliate lined areas, stimulating the appearance of smoother, softer, younger-looking skin while protecting against environmental damage.
Collagenesis Deep Wrinkle Protocol Deep Line Erasing Serum:
An advanced anti-wrinkle treatment packed with new innovative peptides that visibly plump deep lines and wrinkles. Utilizing a unique patented amino acid encapsulation technology to provide a lipo-filling effect, the serum will effectively help to stimulate and rebuild the lost suppleness that occurs as skin ages - skin will appear plump and more lifted. The serum also features Syn-ake peptide, a synthetic tri-peptide that mimics the effects of reduced muscle contractions resulting in a Botox-like effect, leading to a reduction in wrinkles and smoother skin. Additionally, this concentrated serum is packed with firming, regenerative peptides, HA spheres and 3D intensors for an emblematic Collagenesis® global approach.
Sonic Infuser Deep Resonating Tool
Skinn’s Deep Resonating Sonic Infuser amplifies the overall effectiveness of the Collagenesis® Deep Wrinkle Protocol Deep Line Erasing Serum or any of Skinn’s advanced serum formulations. Apply any serum directly onto problem-lined areas, then activate the Infuser to penetrate treatment to the deepest levels with the power of ultrasonic induction. Be assured that this gentle Infuser is safe to use around the delicate eye area without risk of breaking capillaries.Use daily (morning and night) for most dramatic results.

A while I go I made a life overhaul. Vegan. (Almost) Gluten Free. Plant Based and almost raw.
Over 15 years ago I was way into being RAW, way before it was trendy. People thought I was NUTS. I was raw for two years. Then, life changed and I was back to high protein meat eating.
Anyway, after reading Rich Roll's book, I made a life change. And there is no looking back. I am in HEAVEN. And so are my kids because I am making so many awesome new recipes for treats, and I let them have them whenever. They are healthy and if they want them for breakfast - then cool. Treat that nourish. How happy was I to discover yet another option to meet my requirements - but that my kids can chow down on too.

Susan O'Brien’s story started on the island of Maui where she fell in love with Superfoods and the Raw Foods lifestyle. For the devoted daughter, wife & mother of three boys, this new way of living seemed like a natural progression from her decade long yoga practice.
The origin of food is in her DNA given that her grandparents were farmers growing heirloom vegetables and fruits in the small East Texas town of Grand Saline. Her uncle (whom she adored) would continue the family farming tradition growing citrus fruits near the Mexican border town of McAllen Texas where she frequently visited as a child and has fond memories of picking fresh fruits from the trees.
College would take her to UT Austin where she studied design and was a regular customer at Whole Foods Market at the original location on Lamar. Her design skills and professional career of designing clinical laboratories would serve her well as the owner of a food company specializing in the unique techniques of food dehydration rather than typical baking.
Upon turning 40 years old, Susan wanted to explore ways in which she could look and feel better as a sort of birthday present to herself, so she adopted the raw foods lifestyle entirely for 9 months and as a result, never felt better. She studied the popular raw food chefs of the time and even trained with the famed raw foods chef, Juliano Brotman, of Santa Monica.
In Dallas, she would later turn her home and back cabana into a test kitchen for these raw creations vowing to make them taste better than what she could find on the market. She wanted her Hail Merry snacks to not only be functional but they had to taste good as well. She sold her products into a few local health food stores and quickly gained a devoted following of people who were also seeking better for you good tasting snacks made with pure ingredients. Susan trained her children’s nanny Lorraine (who is now Hail Merry’s Chief Mixologist), how to prepare the food and package it all so that she could spend her time selling and marketing the brand.
Susan would then be introduced to Sarah Chapin now her partner and CEO at Hail Merry while still producing in her home Cabana. Sarah was literally a dream come true for Susan and her husband Steve, who serves as Hail Merry’s Chairman. Sarah brought 30 years of big food company thinking & expertise in investment banking to Hail Merry while allowing Susan to continue pursuing her passion for creating great tasting recipes and marketing the brand to consumers and retailers.
Also joining the Hail Merry team as partner and CPO in the early cabana days was Alison Brushaber. Alison a food scientist and culinary trained chef, is also a food industry leader with 30 years experience in commercializing food for large brands. The movie Food, Inc. had a very profound effect on Sarah, Alison and Susan. Together they would vow to use their big company experience and skills to help bring about vast industry wide change to the food supply.
This powerful trifecta of women now leads Hail Merry with Conscious Capitalism as the core of their mission and value system for the company. They also bring their innate skills as intuitive and passionate females who excel at nurturing the company culture to help their own employees find a healthier path in life.
Susan, Sarah and Alison continue to grow Hail Merry so that more people have access to their unique and great tasting products that do not exclude anyone.
WHY: Hail Merry exists to help people achieve higher health.
HOW: By creating truly great tasting snacks using our award winning recipes. Our pure ingredients are consciously sourced and prepared in innovative ways that protect the integrity of the plant based beneficial oils, while also meeting the needs of those with special dietary restrictions.
WHAT: Hail Merry is a category redefining snack-food company born out of the yoga culture that is owned and led by women who seek to nurture each other, our employees, our partners, our families and our customers.
Hail Merry® is a symbol of purity and the Hail Merry Queen is an artful & cheerful expression of the power that the female holds within to nurture and express love.
When I was first developing the idea of the company and brand, my three boys were playing chess often. I have always loved how much power the queen possesses in the game of chess, thus the Hail Merry Queen is a wink and a nod to the power that all women possess. The Hail Merry Queen icon was designed to resemble a chess piece in the vein of the wooden doll series created by the great American born architect, Alexander Girard.
The name ‘Hail Merry’ is hopefully both memorable and thought provoking. It is meant to be a delicate play on words, evoking a feeling of merriment. Yet also an important reminder to be grateful for the beautiful foods this planet has to offer so that we may live and love longer.
There is of course the Catholic connotation, and being Catholic myself, I respect and admire my faith very deeply. Building any business can be challenging at times, thus the name ‘Hail Merry’ sparks daily inspiration for me.
Hail Merry is ultimately about the journey to higher health and the unique path we each must take to achieve our goals for a happier healthier life with friends and family.

The ONE Fudge Chocolate Bar believes in integrity and quality and go to great means to make sure they provide customers with the highest quality raw organic chocolate fudge bar.
Every batch is made by hand in a small traditional copper pot Bain-Marie. The temperature of our cacao is always kept under 118 degrees so as to be able to melt all the fats all the while keeping the integrity of the nutritional benefits of their cacao and superfood ingredients.
While the cacao is melting it is continuously stirred, creating a silky smooth texture; they slowly add each of our dry ingredients always stirring to ensure the most rich and creamy texture when finished.They allow the chocolate to cool to temperatures in the 90’s and then hand pour raw organic heirloom chocolate into each mold. Once the chocolate sets, every bar is wrapped by hand.
ARRIBA NACIONAL CACAO | The raw cacao bean is one of nature's most fantastic superfoods due to its mineral content and wide array of unique and varied properties. Cacao is the number one source of magnesium of any food on the planet, contains 314% of the US RDA of iron per serving, contains the highest concentration of antioxidants of any food in the world, and is also exceptionally rich in chromium, anandamide (the bliss chemical), theobromine, manganese, zinc, copper, vitamin C, omega-6 fatty acids, PEA, tryptophan, serotonin, and more.
Due to its extraordinary concentration of PEA and magnesium, cacao is likely the single greatest weight loss food out there because cacao contains more minerals and molecules that actually shut off the appetite than any other food. Contrary to popular opinion, cacao contains very little, if any, caffeine. It has been clinically demonstrated that cacao does not elevate blood sugar in the same way as a caffeine containing food or beverage. Cacao is also a highly effective natural energy enhancer and aphrodisiac.
There are three major species ofTheobroma Cacao currently in wide cultivation around the world: Criollo, Forastero, and Trinitario (a cross of the other two). Criollo is the most highly prized. Criollo varieties are very rare, comprising less than 1% of the worldwide cacao market.
The ONE FUDGE Chocolate Bar is derived from pure Criollo Ecuador Arriba Nacional Cacao beans. This cacao is grown in high-elevation volcanic soil that is brought down from the mountainous regions via donkey back. The Arriba Cacao trees are a minimum of 30 years old, and some have been growing for more than 80 years and only nourished from rain water or deep mountain spring water. They are never irrigated from potentially contaminated rivers and streams.
We guarantee the purity of our chocolate as 100% Arriba cacao by selecting the pods personally by hand and we never acquire product from aggregators. We only harvest the beans when they are fully mature and ripe. The cacao beans procured for The ONE FUDGE Chocolate Bar are processed in our own state-of-the-art facility on custom artisan equipment that has never seen any other cacao but our own, so there is no possible integration with lesser quality cacao. The cacao beans are always sun-dried and are never gas dried. The cacao remains 100% raw from start to finish. This is a true from "Pod to Paste" facility! Our Cacao Paste is created by stone-grinding the nibs into a smooth liquid state. The product remains liquid only as long as it is being ground and then solidifies at room temperature. There is no heat used in the process. We then have this paste shipped to our facility in NY where we then make the ONE FUDGE Chocolate Bar by hand in the old traditional style Copper Pot Bain-Marie.
Because we use such a pure quality cacao bean in the production of The ONE FUDGE Chocolate Bar, you will have zero jitters from this product. There is a complete lack of mycotoxins, mold, yeast, and fungus, which are what cause the adrenal response of jitteriness that is similar to caffeine stimulation in many cacao products. Instead, our chocolate helps to create a cosmic conscious connection and cause pineal gland expansion. The ONE FUDGE Chocolate Bar has a deep, rich, raw chocolate flavor yet is wonderfully sweet and creamy.

CACAO BUTTER | pressed from our criollo cacao beans.
MESQUITE | Our Mesquite powder is ground from the seed pods of the mesquite plant, also known as Algorroba (Prosopis juliflora), a leguminous plant found in arid areas around the world, including parts of South America and the southwestern U.S.
The Traditional Use of Mesquite
Mesquite seed pods have long been used in desert areas as a food source by the indigenous peoples, who traditionally ground them into a powder to be used as a flour or processed them into a sweetener, a sweet beverage, or a fermented alcoholic drink. For thousands of years, Native Americans in the Southwest and Mexico relied on mesquite as a food staple. Today, mesquite powder is a versatile food with a high nutritional and flavor value.
The Nutritional Value of Mesquite
Because mesquite powder is ground from the entire pod, including the seed, it is high in:
Mesquite's sugar is in the form of fructose, which does not require insulin for metabolism. With a glycemic index of 25 and a high percentage (25%) of dietary fiber, it digests more slowly than many grains, preventing sharp rises and falls in blood sugar.
MACA | A Powerful Adaptogen
Maca, like the goji berry, reishi mushroom, asparagus root, rhodiola, ginseng, AFA algae, and others, is a powerful adaptogen.
Maca has been used medicinally for centuries in South America as it contains biologically active aromatic isothiocyanates, especially p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate. Anyone who is interested in the long history and health-giving properties of this herb is urged to do your own research into its many extraordinary benefits.
MACA: A Nutritional Powerhouse
Maca has a higher lipid (fat) content than other root crops, of which linolenic acid, palmitic acid, and oleic acid are the primary fatty acids respectively.
Maca is a rich source of sterols including sitosterol, campesterol, ergosterol, brassicasterol, and ergostadienol.
Maca is rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur, sodium, and iron.
It contains trace minerals including zinc, iodine, copper, selenium, bismuth, manganese, tin, and silicon.
It is also high in vitamins B1, B2, C, and E.
CINNAMON | The word cinnamon, the genus name, probably came from either the Arabic or the Hebrew language, but the species name cassia is from the Greek kassia, meaning to strip off the bark. Its use in Chinese medicine goes back to at least 2700 B.C.E. where it is referred to in several herbal formularies. It is, however, primarily known for the familiar flavor it imparts to any dish that it comes in contact with.
Health Benefits of Cinnamon
According to the US National Library of Medicine, Cinnamon is used to help treat muscle spasms, vomiting, diahreah, infections, the common cold, loss of appetite, and erectile disfunction (ED). Cinnamon may lower blood sugar in people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and help improve glucose and lipid levels. Cinnamon has also been known to help fight against bacterial and fungal infections because of the a chemical found in Cassia cinnamon called cinnamaldehyde.
ORGANIC RAW GROUND VANILLA BEANS | The Vanilla Planifolia, or Vanilla Orchid, is grown on the islands of the South Pacific, where the Vanilla “bean” is harvest from the flower by hand. After curing in the sun for days, the vanilla is ground into a fine powder and packaged in a Certified Organic facility. This Dark Tahitian Vanilla will enhance the taste of almost any food. For more than 6 centuries, natural vanilla has provided spectacular flavoring and aroma to foods and beverages.
CELTIC SEA SALT | Celtic Sea Salt® Brand Celtic Sea Salt® Brand - The Original Brand - is authentic, unprocessed whole salt from one of the most pristine coastal regions of France. Since 1976, Celtic Sea Salt® Brand has been harvested by the paludiers (salt farmers) of Brittany using a farming method that preserves the purity and balance of ocean minerals. Celtic Sea Salt® Brand is doctor recommended, more nutritious than table salt, quality certified and has exquisite taste.
COCONUT SUGAR | Helps Prevent Obesity by speeding up metabolism, providing an immediatesource of energy with fewer calories than other fats. People whoconsistently use coconut products, report a stronger ability to go without eating for several hours with no affects of hypoglycemia.
Improves Heart Health by providing healthy short chain and medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) that are essential to good health. Close to 98% of all fatty acids consumed are composed of long-chain fatty acids (LCFA), which are very different from MCFA that have no negative effect on cholesterol ratios and help to lower the risk of atherosclerosis and protect against heart disease. Studies have shown that populations in Polynesia and Sri Lanka, where coconuts are a dietary staple, do not suffer from high serum cholesterol or heart disease. Unlike other fats, the unique properties of coconut also contain a large amount of lauric acid, which is the predominant fatty acid found in mother’s milk.
High in Dietary Fiber rivaling other fiber sources such as psyllium, wheat bran, oat bran, and rice bran. Coconut supplies an impressive 61% dietary fiber! Foods contain two types of carbohydrates - digestible and nondigestible.
Digestible carbohydrates (soluble fiber) consists of starch and sugar and promote calories. Non-digestible carbohydrates (insoluble fiber) contains NO calories. Since the body cannot digest the dietary fiber in coconut, no calories are derived from it and it has no effect on blood sugar.
Low Glycemic Index (GI) measures how fast available carbohydrates in food raise blood sugar levels. Coconut fiber slows down the release of glucose, therefore requiring less insulin to utilize the glucose and transport it into the cell where it is converted into energy. Coconut also assists in relieving stress on the pancreas and enzyme systems of the body, in turn, reducing the risks associated with Diabetes. Coconut Nectar and Crystals have a very low GI of only 35 (compared to honey with a GI of 55-83, and sugar with a GI of 65-100.)
Reduces Sweet Cravings and improves insulin secretion and utilization of blood glucose. The healthy fat in coconut slowsdown any rise in blood sugar and helps to reduce hypoglycemic cravings.
Improves Digestion and many of the symptoms and inflammatory conditions associatedwith digestive and bowel disorders, by supporting absorption of other nutrients including vitamins, minerals, and amino acids while also providing beneficial dietary fiber.
Quick Energy Boost that provides a super nutritious source of extra energy. Coconut is utilized by the body to actually produce energy, rather than to store it as body fat. It supports improved endurance during physical and athletic performance. As well, it promotes healthy thyroid function and helps to relieve the symptoms of chronic fatigue.
In addition, coconut contains No Trans-Fats, is Gluten-Free, Non-Toxic, Hypoallergenic, and also contains Antibacterial, Antiviral, Antifungal, and Anti-parasitic healing properties. Coconut helps to aid and support overall Immune System functions.
