SeabuckWonders Facial Cleanser Awarded Best of Natural Beauty Award from Better Nutrition!

I want to share an award-winning, affordable and all-natural exfoliating cleanser with you, look no more!  SeabuckWonders’ Sea Buckthorn Exfoliating Facial Cleanser was just awarded “Best in Natural Beauty–Face” by Better Nutrition! 

SeabuckWonders’ Sea Buckthorn Exfoliating Cleanser has won the 2019 Better Nutrition Health + Beauty Awards in the “Face” category. Each year in spring, Better Nutrition magazine chooses the top health and beauty products from the natural products industry.  Here’s why SBW’s facial cleanser stands out from the rest.

Formulated for daily use, this cleanser is unlike any other exfoliating wash. Natural jojoba esters exfoliate to revive dull skin without roughness. Exfoliation boosts blood circulation in the skin for a fresh complexion. This deep cleanse washes away daily impurities and dead cells. It’s the perfect daily cleanser for makeup lovers!

  • SeabuckWonders exfoliating cleanser is specifically formulated for daily use, while other exfoliators can only be used a few times per week. ​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​
  • SBW uses natural exfoliating beads made from jojoba esters that provide a very gentle grit. The gentle exfoliation is enough for a daily deep clean but not enough to cause the harsh abrasions that many cleansers do​​​​​​​.
  • Great for all skin types! Every skin type can benefit from exfoliation because it increases health by sloughing away dirt and dead skin cells.    
  • SBW uses a blend of sea buckthorn seed and berry oil, which provides nourishment to the skin. Sea buckthorn oil is incredibly balanced, and it helps bring balance to nearly every skin type.
  • Not only does sea buckthorn oil feed the skin with rich omegas and antioxidants- it helps keep the skin supple and moisturized after exfoliation. ​​​​​​​
  • SeabuckWonders Exfoliating Cleanser is Leaping Bunny Certified Cruelty-Free, Ashley KoffApproved and Vegan.

Be sure to see all the winners on All winners will be announced April 2019.

Garnier Brand Launches New Signature Tagline

Garnier proudly announces the launch of a new signature tagline – By Garnier, Naturally – to serve as a stamp of the brand’s commitment to sustainability and a guarantor of its century of experience in ingredient-focused hair care, color, and skincare formulated with naturally-inspired ingredients. With this new signature launch, Garnier pledges to continue to introduce measures to reduce plastic usage by committing to 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) waste for shampoo, conditioner, and leave in conditioner bottles in its #1 selling hair care collection – Fructis Sleek & Shine – by the end of 2019. Presently, Garnier Fructis hair care products are produced in a zero waste facility and the current packaging contains 50% post-consumer recycled waste, and the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine formula uses sustainably sourced Argan Oil from Southwest Morocco. 

To herald the brand’s news, Garnier is launching an education-based mobile Greenhouse Tour in select retail locations across the United States this spring. Inclusive of sampling, coupons, live product and recycling demonstrations, and interactive ingredient experiences, guests to the Greenhouse Tour will experience the world of By Garnier, Naturally.  The tour launched on Sunday, March 17 at CVS on 5748 SW 40th Street in South Beach, Miami and will end on Earth Day, Monday, April 22, at 10 Hudson Yards in New York City. In total, the Greenhouse will visit 22 locations at six retailers.

“Garnier’s mission is to develop beauty products that are both good for you and good for the planet,” says Anncy Rowe, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Garnier. “The announcement of our new signature, 100% PCR initiative for Fructis Sleek & Shine and the Greenhouse Tour serves as a commitment to our customers that we continue to aspire to bring the highest quality, most efficacious naturally-inspired formulas in the most sustainable quality packaging to the masses at a price point that’s attainable.”

With the insight that nearly half of Americans do not recycle their beauty and personal care products, accounting for 1/3 of all landfill waste, Garnier has been working with TerraCycle since 2011 to educate people on how to recycle responsibly.  Since the partnership inception, the brand has diverted over 11.7 million empties from landfills, providing a comprehensive solution to personal care and beauty packaging waste with its free recycling program for hair care, skin care, and cosmetic product empties. These empties have been upcycled into materials such as raised garden beds, benches, and picnic tables to build 13 parks, gardens and community spaces nationwide.  To kickoff the Greenhouse Tour, Garnier built a garden at the University of Miami on March 17, and will help beautify a garden in New York City in recognition of Earth Day on April 22.  The Greenhouse Tour is another opportunity to encourage reducing personal waste, as guests are invited to bring their beauty empties to the designated TerraCycle bin at the Garnier Greenhouse for recycling.

About Founder – Carmen Milagro 
As a 1st generation San Franciscan and daughter of Salvadorian-immigrants born in the Mission, she learned early on as a young entertainer & patent-owning inventor that she must walk her own path, follow her own journey and to always, in as many ways possible, to pay it forward. Now, she is at the helm as founder of Borbón Skincare, Inc. and she plans to stay rooted in her community. She is working diligently to build the Borbón flagship site in the Bay Area, to help inspire other Women of Color in her own backyard and a major part of her growth plan for Borbón is to be inclusive and hire “locally diverse” people from the community as well as create an in-house “hands-on” training initiative to help people out of their low-income & disenfranchised positions. Borbón Skincare subscribes to the “Training-Skills-Not-Handouts” and “Pay-it-Forward” philosophies. 

Carmen Milagro also sits on the Board of Directors for Heaven’s Door Cancer Foundation because she learned the true value of healthy clean products and how they allow Cancer Warriors feel better in their own skin when she was helping to care for my mother before she passed away. Once the company in is profit mode, Borbón plans to create a BODO (Buy One Donate One) program for the cancer warriors & divas at Heaven’s Door Cancer Foundation. 

Says Carmen Milagro, “Music is my passion but helping others is my purpose!” 


A Quinoa Hair Product that Works Wonders for Hair!

Did you know that the new mother of all grains, Quinoa, if hydrolyzed, does wonders for the hair? The reason being, it penetrates through the cuticles and supplements the protein loss that happens through coloring, bleaching, sun, sea and age. Quinoa’s natural protein content is far more than any other grain. Furthermore the quinoa protein composition is almost identical to the protein composition of the hair. So when the proteins come in contact, they immediately bond together, making the hair stronger and rebuilding it naturally to prevent breakage and split ends. It also protects against hair loss and thinning for both men and women.

You can now use the quinoa protein to add to your chemical color at home (a cap full) or take it the salon to put in 0.25 oz into one application of 2 oz of color or into one scoop of bleach to give back the protein the hair loses. The difference is amazing and could be felt and seen right away.

Introducing Quinoaplex by ONC, made of the new miracle grain “quinoa”, that transforms hair when hydrolyzed and molecules are then small enough to get through the cuticles of the hair to penetrate into the hair shaft. Quinoaplex by ONC is therefore beneficial because hair is made of 85% Protein which also is called Keratin. Washing hair, color/bleach and/or its exposure to sun, causes loss of protein, thinning of hair (men & women), hair loss and hair breakage.

Quinoaplex by ONC provides:

– lasting shine
– manageability without the need of any gels or hairspray.
– shorter time of hair drying
– decreases hair loss, thinning and breakage
– increases the lasting of hair color
– soothing irritated scalp
– it allows the hair to be colored and bleached with much less damage more often as the protein that the hair loses, is given back with the hydrolyzed quinoa protein.

Other great benefits of quinoa hair protein are:

It promotes growth
Helps the pigmentation of your hair color
Its minerals are natural hair strengtheners
Protect your hair from environmental damaging agents like air pollution.

Use: Shampoo hair and towel dry. Spray on evenly all over hair and then massage till it lathers. Leave for 10-15 min. Then rinse and condition (leave on for 3 min). If you don’t have time, you can just leave it on and not bother with the rinsing and conditioner. You can also add a cap full ( 0.25 fl. oz.) into any chemical box color right before coloring at home. Take it to your salon and ask or insist the colorist put in a cap full ( 0.25 fl. oz.) into  your chemical color or bleach solution. It does not interfere with ratios, developeror formula time. You can see its effects after one application. But never use immediately after hair coloring. Wait 3-4 days.

QUINOAPLEX R₃ the organic based bond builder and protein conditioner. Developed for professional use, quinoa protein and the protein composition of hair and nails are almost identical. So when the proteins come together they immediately bond, making the hair stronger, and rebuilding it naturally.
