Fruit Acid Complex 

Fruit Acid Complex is a concentrated blend of five botanical extracts: bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, orange, and lemon. These extracts contain several naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids. Alpha hydroxy acids have been shown to promote smoother, younger looking skin by increasing the rate of cell renewal.

 

According to the manufacturer: At a 10% dilution, this product produced a 34% in cell renewal when compared to the untreated control side. Accordingly, there was a 143% percent increase in the number of squames generated. Evaluated at 4% in a commercial cream, this product increased cell turnover by 20% relative to the control formulation.

While the manufacturer recommends a use level between 5 - 15%, we advise less experienced formulators to use this product at the lower level. All products made with AHAs should be tested using a pH meter (not pH paper) to ensure products at final formulation have a pH of at least 4.0.

Because products formulated with AHAs can increase sun sensitivity, the FDA requires specific labeling of products which contain AHAs and do not include sunscreens. This information and much more is contained in the FDA document USFDA on Labeling for Topically Applied Cosmetics Containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids as Ingredients. The link to this FDA document is also readily accessible in our Reference Room above (please consider it required reading).

According to the manufacturer, the sugars in this product are produced without the use of bone char and it is therefore a VEGAN product.

A car drove off the Anacortes Ferry Dock about 9:45AM this morning and emergency crews are there in a search and recovery effort. Service to and from Orcas Island is expected to be suspended for many more hours. This will delay UPS and Mail shipments by a day as these services will miss connections on the mainland. We appreciate your understanding of this situation beyond our control. Please keep the occupants of the vehicle in your thoughts and prayers.

Thought that I misplaced my soap bevel when I moved and then could not find the web sight of where the purchase originated. Found the bevel and thank goodness I found the receipt of the purchase!!! Wanted to pass on that it is fantastic and easy to use. It bevels two different sizes and I love it.

Out of all online services that I have used before "Lotioncrafters" is the fastest!! I put my order in and an hour later my stuff was ready for shipment. So impressive :-) For me and my DIY lotions and potions I'll only use Lotioncrafters. I'm very happy with the products I received.
