Luxury Oils Made For Your Skin

Oils have gained recent popularity in skin care, and for good reason. There’s something wonderfully luxurious about smoothing on a nourishing facial or body oil and the healthy glow it imparts. The use of a facial oil is no longer reserved for very dry or mature skin types. Even those with oily or blemish prone skin can benefit from the unique oil blends Pravada now has to offer your private label collection. We have specially formulated two luxury facial dry oils to target dry to mature skin types, and normal to oily/blemish prone skin. These new dry oils are fast absorbing, not heavy or greasy like other formulas. Our custom blends are supremely effective, delivering a potent dose of anti-oxidants and omega fatty acids to strengthen and refine the skin.

Our new Complexion Renewal Facial Dry Oil targets Dry to Mature Skin types. This radiance boosting formula contains Seabuckthorn Berry, Argan, and Rosehip oils. This blend of antioxidants and moisturizers deeply nourish the skin, revealing a firmer, brighter complexion with each use. Seabuckthorn Berry Oil contains Omega 7 fatty acids that treat free radical damage, act as an anti-inflammatory, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Rose hip oil is light weight on the skin and composed of powerful antioxidants and fatty acids that are known to improve the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Argan oil is healing and nutritious as it promotes skin elasticity.

The new Complexion Balancing Facial Dry Oil formula contains Black Currant, Evening Primrose, Jojoba oils. While applying facial oil to an already oily or blemish-prone face may seem counterintuitive, this light formulation actually has the power to balance excess sebum production and calm the skin. Rich in Linoleic acid, these oils hydrate without clogging pores. Black Currant oil contains antioxidants and Vitamin C that brighten the complexion and boost cell turnover. Evening Primrose Oil calms inflammation, redness, and irritation. Jojoba oil deeply hydrates and smooths the skin, regulating the skin’s natural sebum production.

Bottle a touch of pure luxury for your private label skin care collection with the addition of the new Complexion Renewal and Complexion Balancing Facial Dry Oils. Clients of all skin types will benefit from these new products and won’t be able to get enough of your unique skin care offering. Samples are available for purchase on our website.

New at Pravada! Activated Charcoal Organic Skincare

ACTIVATED CHARCOAL: The Ancient Secret to Clearer, Brighter Skin

At Pravada, we are dedicated to using the best natural ingredients that Mother Nature has to offer. As we unfold the answers to beautiful skin, we shine the spotlight on our newest products for you and your private label skin care collection.

Used for centuries for medicinal purposes, Charcoal has gained immense popularity for its skin purifying benefits. After trying it for ourselves, we can’t get enough. Our new, exclusively designed Activated Charcoal products are guaranteed to heat up your private label skin care collection.

In our products, we work with activated charcoal – this is carbon intensely heated with oxygen and treated to increase its attraction and absorption abilities. This process results in charcoal with a porous surface area able to attract up to 1000 times its weight in pore-clogging, complexion- dulling impurities. Dead skin cells, excess sebum, and lingering make up are snapped up like a magnet, then rinsed away leaving skin remarkably clean.

Our new products, Bamboo Charcoal Pore Minimizing Cleanser and Bamboo Charcoal Pore Minimizing Masque, bring the hottest multitasking ingredient to your skin care collection. These products are specially formulated to deliver a deep-down clean to leave skin soft and luminous.

The Bamboo Charcoal Pore Minimizing Cleanser is a sulfate free gel cleanser providing a gentle and effective lather, dissolving oil and makeup, rinsing away pore-clogging impurities, and excess oil. With the help of natural oils, including Olive, Rosehip, Borage, Tea Tree, and Oregano, plus botanical extracts from Calendula, Burdock Root, and Red Clover, combined with a kick of Activated Bamboo Charcoal, this cleanser refines skin texture, brightens skin clarity, and minimizes the look of pores over time. Perfect for all skin types. Can be used on face or body. Men love this product, too!

Our Bamboo Charcoal Pore Minimizing Masque deeply cleanses and gently exfoliates away impurities to reveal smoother skin. Perfect for all skin types, this masque starts with a base of gentle white Kaolin Clay.  To this, Bamboo charcoal has the added skin benefit of brightening- helping reduce the appearance of age spots, sun spots, and hyper-pigmentation.   Vitamin C, Spirulina and Kelp provide anti-oxidant protection to the skin.  Soothing benefits come from Camomile, Clove, Cayenne, Tamanu Oil and Arnica helping the complexion look clearer and more radiant.  Botanical Jojoba, Coconut, Rosehip and Evening Primrose Oils, along with Cocoa Butter and Beeswax leave the skin soft and supple.

Tan Lines Optional

By now, we’ve all heard about how damaging the sun’s rays can be for unprotected skin. Melanoma, dark spots, and premature aging are the risks you put yourself at while baking in the sun, or worse, using tanning beds. But how can you achieve the bronze without the burn?

Luckily, today’s sunless tanners are better than ever, and Pravada Private Label Skincare offers one of the of the best in the market. No more unnatural orange color, telltale streaking, or patchiness. Our Sunless Tanning Lotion is a  luxurious formula is packed with Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Aloe, and Vitamin E to retain elasticity and keep skin deeply moisturized. The active ingredient, DHA (dihydroxyacitone) is derived from sugar, and when applied, reacts with the amino acids on the surface of the skin to temporarily darken it. This “sweet” alternative ingredient that facilitates sunbathing without the sun is FDA and Health Canada approved and safe for regular use.

Pravada Sunless Tanning Lotion is the perfect addition to your private label skincare line, especially now with the summer quickly approaching.  We are also happy to provide you with a few tips for your customers on how to best achieve that coveted, back-from-the-beach glow without any harmful side effects of UV ray tanning-

• Always prep for sunless tanning by taking a few minutes in the shower to gently exfoliate from head to toe, especially around the knees and elbows. Smooth skin helps ensure that your application comes out even!

• Before applying the sunless tanning lotion, apply a small amount of body butter to the tops of the feet, around the ankles, knees, elbows, and fingernails. This prevents excess sunless tanning lotion to be absorbed and creating an uneven tan.

• Apply the sunless tanning lotion in light, circular motions. Go section by section to be sure you don’t miss any spots.

• Remember to wash hands very thoroughly after your application. Use a small amount of sunless tanning lotion on a makeup sponge and apply sparingly to the back of the hands.

• Wait a few minutes for the lotion to absorb well before dressing, and a couple hours before bathing or swimming to allow your sunless tan time to develop.

Vitamin C – Restorative Benefits for Skin


Summer may have ended but the impacts on skin is lasting –  which is why Vitamin C based skin care products are an important component of any natural and organic private label skin care line that targets clients that spend significant time in the sun.

The cutting edge of skin care research shows that aging skin is the result of more than just years on the calendar. Exposure to environmental elements like sunlight, smoke, and air pollution causes photo-aging in skin. Not only does this lead to the formation of lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation – it can lead to more serious skin conditions, including skin cancer.

A comprehensive Vitamin C program, such as the Pravada Vitamin C Skin Care Line can help prevent photo-aging and the onset of more serious skin conditions. Topical Vitamin C has now been shown to provide up to eight times the skin’s natural protection from UV damage. While sunscreens are also an important part of the prevention process, although they cannot do it alone. Vitamin C protects your skin from the sun in ways that sunscreens can’t. When used together, Vitamin C and sunscreens provide almost complete photo-protection – preventing photo-aging, preventing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promoting vibrant skin health.

Oxidative damage shows up on our faces in the form of sun spots, discoloration, wrinkles, sagging, and loss of elasticity and glow. Vitamin C prevents oxidative damage by neutralizing oxygen-free radicals before they can attack the body. Some Vitamin C is available to the body by oral ingestion, but many individuals do not achieve even the minimum daily requirement through diet or supplements. Furthermore, Vitamin C cannot be stored in the body, and so must be reintroduced into the body AND skin on a daily basis.

Our formulators have refined ways to stabilize and deliver additional amounts of key Vitamin C into the skin. Continued research has demonstrated that, properly formulated, Vitamin C combinations work synergistically to provide enhanced benefit. Recent studies show that topical application of optimized Vitamin C combinations can provide up to eight-fold antioxidant protection, ninety-six percent reduction of sunburn cells, and prevent the formation of free radicals in UV irradiated skin (sun exposed skin).

Vitamin C is necessary for the production of collagen, the major structural protein of the skin and although visible differences will not be seen for approximately two months, you may notice a visible difference in skin texture, color and tone in as early as a few days. Our topical Vitamin C products will start to be absorbed by the skin almost immediately. Because these Vitamin C products were developed as a preventative treatment with the goal of protecting the skin from further environmental damage, the skin will benefit the moment the Vitamin C is applied. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles will become less noticeable within two to six months. Individual results will vary, depending upon the condition of the skin at the time of initial use.

Most individuals find the ideal time to apply Vitamin C is in the morning, because during the day you are more susceptible to sun exposure and L-ascorbic acid provides photo protection from UVA/UVB radiation. You can also safely use it at night, as it stays in the skin for up to 72 hours, and cannot be washed off. Using our Vitamin C products once a day should be perfect for optimal results. Do not let the slight sting upon application scare you. The high acid levels are necessary in order for the Vitamin C to be absorbed. Other products with AHA’s can still very safely be used alongside of our Vitamin C formulations, and will actually be greatly enhanced by the addition of these products.

The Pravada Vitamin C line up includes:

Vitamin C Cleanser

For up to eight-fold anti-oxidant protection this cleanser refines skin texture, reduces wrinkle appearance and helps protect from the abuse of the elements. An organic aloe vera and sugar based sulfate free wash, it is gentle enough for daily use.

Organic Protocol For Acne-Prone Skin

NEW EFFECTIVE ORGANIC TREATMENTS FOR ACNE-PRONE SKIN

Most individuals normally associate acne with teenage and menopause, but the truth is that acne strikes everyone at least once in their lives. Acne is the result of your sebaceous glands producing excess sebum. Some amount of sebum is needed to keep our skin and hair hydrated but when there is too much of it, it can trap dead cells and debris, causing clogged pores. Blackheads and whiteheads and scars and discoloration – these are all signature prints of oily and inflamed skin. Whether an adult or a teen, no one wants to experience the world with blemished skin.

But there are solutions. In addition to a focus on lifestyle (drinking lots of water and eating healthily), there are new natural and organic private label skin care products available without the toxins and harsh ingredients that have filled the traditional formulations of anti-blemish skin care. At Pravada, we have pulled together what we feel is the best selection of products designed specifically to address problem skin. Our natural and organic calming and clarifying formulas help to regulate sebum production while battling bacteria.

While it is widely know that a quality skin care regimine can help alleviate the break-out problems associated with acne, most skin care products on the market contain chemicals that can aggravate acne-prone skin. By overloading the skin with harsh chemicals that strip the skin’s natural oils, the skin will produce more oil to compensate — which can lead to more blocked pores and acne! Today, there is an alternative – products that contain natural ingredients such as tea tree, licorice, cayenne, turmeric and clove, which are all known for antibacterial properties.

The best method for dealing with acne-prone skin, along with changes in diet and fitness, is to use a high quality protocol of natural based skin care products designed specifically to cleanse, tone and, yes, moisturize the skin. Our multi-step cleansing system is designed to do just that.

Step 1 – Cleansing
Choose from 3 types of cleansers – all are aloe based, sulphate and paraben-free and are formulated specifically for combination to oily skin types. Choose from the premium Bio-Clear Cleanser, the cost effective but very effective Clear Skin Wash and the Sensitive Skin Face Wash with Vitamin C – perfect for those sun worshippers.

Step 2 – Toning
Our Bio-Clear Toner is a special blend of organic lavender distillate (an antiseptic and helps to heal and treat pimples, wounds, and sores); Witch hazel to help tighten and tone the pores; MSM; and organic willow bark, clove essential oil, organic juniper and cayenne to help control sebaceous glad production. It was formulated for reactive, oily, congested, and blemished skin to heal, relieve, and clarify. What you will not experience is dryness, irritation, redness, and inflammation.

Step 3 – Moisturizing
For soft clear skin, we can’t say enough about our Moisturizing Treatment for Acne-Prone Skin. This luscious cream is chock full of actives which purify skin and provide extreme antioxidant benefits. Turmeric reduces inflammation, gotu kola stimulates cell renewal, licorice lightens discoloration, and sage, goldenseal, propolis, sandalwood, and melissa all kill bacteria while soothing the skin and renewing damaged or irritated tissue. Jojoba oil, which rates zero on the comedogenic scale moisturizes without clogging pores since it is a liquid wax, not a true oil. A high end treatment for the most sensitive of skin – this protective formulation is what we feel absolutely the best on the market!

We also love, love, love our new Bio-Clear Moisturizer – with a unique blend of willow bark, cayenne, juniper and clove, this powerful AND gentle anti-bacterial blend leaves skin fresh, hydrated but never greasy and won’t clog pores.

Step 4 – Deep Cleaning and Treatment
Our Anti-Blemish Clear Skin Treatment is a spot treatment for day and night treatment masque o with 2% salicylic acid. This synergistic blend of scientifically proven blemish banishers keeps troubled skin clean and clear. Non irritating like other spot treatments, this anti-blemish treatment is powerful yet gentle and will not dry out the skin.

And finally our new Bio-Clear Masque is the perfect marriage of anti-aging and skin clearing ingredients. Powerful antiseptic and healing action from Tamanu, Clove, Cayenne and Licorice is enhanced with the anti-aging action of Glycolic Acid, Squalane and Salicylic Acid to calm, clear and brighten the skin.
