Spring into a New You with BeauCle.

Spring is here and that’s reason enough to celebrate!

And although you may notice smoother and glowing skin almost overnight, my reformulated skin care line, BeauCle (“key to beauty”) has been in the making for over 40 years. For many, this may be another reason to rejoice!

The Story Begins With My Ultra Sensitive Skin…

Truth be told, my ultra sensitive skin was the real reason I became so passionate about nutrition in the first place—even as a teenager. I realized early on that my complexion was a barometer—it reacted to what I ate (and didn’t eat) as well as what I put on my face topically.

Although I didn’t know it back then, I was really beginning my skin care research at the tender age of 14—ever since I saw my first dermatologist in West Hartford, Connecticut. Dr. Miller would prescribe A, C, and E vitamins (even back then), as well as antibiotics like tetracycline to quell the breakouts.  He also recommended that I wash with a liquid, albeit highly drying soap called Phisohex—which was highly touted before it was banned—due to the hexachlorophene antibacterial agent.

To this day, my skin—like so many others—will severely react to chemicals, fillers, mineral oil, detergents, and artificial fragrances and colors of any kind.

Jheri Redding, the developer of the famed Redken products, was one of my favorite early skin care pioneers. He extolled the virtues of the skin’s protective acid mantle and proper acidity—not alkalinity—when it came to cosmetics and hair care preparations.

For decades I remembered Redding’s research. When the skin is acid, it appears to attract blood, giving a rosy glow to the complexion. Pale skin is really a sign of overly alkaline skin making it more paper thin and fragile. All cosmetics and hair preparations should have an acid pH, ideally about 5.5.

Still plagued by red and blotchy skin which was worse during certain times of the month, I became a regular at the mid-town Georgette Klinger salons in New York City—the harbinger of today’s day spas. I became very interested in the calming properties of topical botanicals like chamomile for the skin (the European-style facials at Klinger’s used hot towels soaked with chamomile tea to open the pores).

By the 1980s while serving as the Director of Nutrition for the Pritikin Longevity Center, another piece of the skin care puzzle fell into place. Through many of our A-list clientele, I was introduced to the products of Dr. Erno Laszlo who firmly believed in the topical application of lipids (oils) as an unqualified beautifying agent. It has long been recognized by scientists, dermatologists, and biochemists that the skin is composed largely of protein and lipids.

Since I was seeing so many clients who were following the low-to-no-fat diet model of the 80s and early 90s, I began noting how the lack of the right kind of fats took its toll on the skin first—leaving it more susceptible to redness, extreme dryness, and significant moisture loss. Fats were beginning to emerge as an essential nutrient for the body for internal health—why not include them topically from the outside as well?

In the ensuing decades, I expanded my beauty search to include anti-aging ingredients that would work in harmony with the most hydrating, soothing, and toning beauty-full ingredients I could find. Ingredients with both science and tangible results on their side. Ingredients which were deeply penetrating and non-irritating that would deliver the most cherished essential oils, skinceuticals,  hydrators, stable fatty acids, super charged antioxidants, and marine, herb, fruit, and flower extracts.

The result is BeauCle—a three-formula product line which contains a stunning array of the most well researched and time-tested ingredients based upon my lifetime experience and research. I have taken exquisite care to select each ingredient, not just based upon my own background, but to make sure that they meet Whole Foods Market’s Quality Standards and the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database.

Part of my philosophy with the line is to continually improve the product line to stay in sync with the most current beautifying elements on the planet. Many of the signature ingredients have been a part of the line since day one, while other compounds have been added as we discover the most effective, pure and stable ingredients nature has to offer!

Your Daily Skin Solution

Used daily, BeauCle will help restore and strengthen the intracellular moisture barrier of skin from environmental assaults and chronic dryness. The cleanser, moisturizer and corrective creme are pH balanced and suitable for all skin types. I made sure that all three now contain the optimum skin hydrator Camelina sativa oil which helps to improve elasticity, moisturize, and rejuvenate the skin while providing the most stable combination of Omega fatty acids and copious amounts of Vitamin E to prevent oxidation.

The products also contain the omega-rich sea buckthorn which contains more than 60 antioxidants, especially carotenoids like beta carotene, lycopene, and zeaxanthim—particularly nourishing for skin health. Sea buckthorn also provides the rare omega-7 known for its ability to support collagen production.

BeauCle Purifying CleanserBeauCle Purifying Cleanser

My daily soap-free formula gently supports the skin’s natural cell turnover while actively refining and protecting the skin’s delicate balance in a base of healing and hydrating organic aloe leaf juice. The probiotics complex (alpha glucan oligosaccharides) insures the ideal 5.5 pH (to match the skin’s natural acid mantle) and protects against irritants.

With this silky cleanser, you might even notice a slight reddening of the complexion. And that is a good thing; it’s your body’s sign that blood flow is increasing to the complexion with a fresh oxygen supply. As in the other two formulas, jojoba seed oil, apricot kernel oil, calendula, arnica, and cucumber fruit extracts provide additional skin healing, toning and antiseptic properties. More info >>

BeauCle Ultra Hydrating MoistureBeauCle Ultra Hydrating Moisture

A luxurious non-greasy moisturizer that infuses your skin with dewy freshness for daytime. I use this all over my body, too. Along with Camelina, the concentration of hydrolyzed silk and jojoba oil (along with other synergistic botanicals) provide immediate hydration. Pure jojoba oil—an ancient skin salve that unclogs the pores and preserves natural oils—is most like your skin’s own natural secretions and simulates collagen for a firm and plump appearance.

To add to the anti-aging lineup, you will find a new sensitive-skin friendly vitamin c compound for added collagen synthesis. Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate has a unique ability to be deeply absorbed into the skin and has a skin lightening effect which helps with age spots and discoloration as well as UV protection.

In addition, the Ultra Hydrating Moisture contains high performance marine extracts for sensitive skin. But the crown jewel in this formula—which I have also added in varying amounts to the cleanser and corrective crème—is the legendary Centipeda cunninghammi extract. Used for centuries by the Aborigines in Australia, this extract is highly anti-inflammatory with anti-fungal as well as anti-bacterial properties and provides natural sun damage protection. According to studies, it is the herb of choice for the topical treatment of psoriasis. There are over 30 patents for the therapeutic use of plants from the Centipeda species for various skin disorders. For supple cell renewal, envelop your skin daily in this youth-restoring moisture bath. More info >>

BeauCle Corrective CremeBeauCle Corrective Creme

A deeply nourishing creme with 20 beautifying ingredients, the corrective creme features a targeted anti-wrinkle and muscle relaxing ingredient—extracted from the acmella oleracea plant—which can help diminish the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet, and expression lines—rapidly. In one clinical study I reviewed, 75% of the participants reported a dramatic smoothing effect the next day after the initial application due to the myorelaxing mechanism.

To optimize the Corrective Creme’s anti-wrinkle effects, I’ve also updated the special blend of peptides to a new, more effective compound. It not only stimulates the synthesis of collagen, but also six other major constituents of the skin matrix and the dermal-epidermal junction and ensures optimal architecture of the tissue. It fills in wrinkles from the inside—both on the forehead and crow’s feet—for visibly smoother and plumper skin. One of the most exciting things about this new compound is its effectiveness for forehead wrinkles…users found a 31% decrease in the volume of forehead wrinkles after just two months! More info >>

It’s time to unlock the key to ageless beauty. A perfect spring gift for your friends, your family, and for yourself.

  1. Karen Anderson

    Is this skin care line gluten free?

  2. Roxanne

    Karen Anderson–I just looked at the ingredients list to see what was in the products and noticed that she also has a list of what is NOT in the items. Gluten was one of them!

  3. Mary Ellen

    My face gets red and feels hot for different reasons but I am looking for something that will have a calming – cooling effect on my skin. Would this product work for that? I know that I can’t use products that contain cucumber which causes my eyes to water non stop. Thanks

    • Team ALG

      These products have proved to be very beneficial to those who have even the most sensitive skin. In addition, a spritz of rose and glycerin water after using the trio will give you that cooling and calming sensation without cucumber.

  4. Mary Ellen

    That sounds great. I am excited about using this. I am going to order the TRIO set. How can I find or make the rose and glycerin water?

    • Team ALG

      It is widely available in health food stores via many different brands. You can make your own, but it is sort of a lengthy distillation process. Please “Google” the details if you are interested in going that route 🙂

  5. Susie

    I have some sun damaged skin on my neckline and was wondering if you have any suggestions of things to take internally and maybe use externally, to help prevent this area from maybe developing skin cancer in the future.

    Can you turn back to clock with sun damaged skin???

    Look forward to hearing you reply.


    • Team ALG

      Susie, You would benefit from looking into Ultra H3 by Uni Key Health! Also GLA from black currant seed oil, and pure gelatin from grass-fed cows.
