RAO – the Must have Winter Skincare product

Cold, dry, winter weather is coming!  Prepare your skin with products from those who understand winter well – the Swiss!

The high altitude of the Swiss Alps has some of the most frigid and deadly winters in the world but also let skin care innovators to create leading moisturizers and skin care products to protect us from those extremes.  One of these products came from the First Lady of Swiss Skin care, Madame Spillmann, over 60 years ago!

RAO Essential Oil

RAO-New-Packaging-SmallRAO combines anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antifungal, antimicrobial and bactericidal properties of bergamot and lemon peel oil with the strength of orange essential oil to strengthen epidermis, to increase the cell hydration and to support cell regeneration. The composition is also design to obtain a crisp fresh scent.  Together these ingredients relax and restore the skin’s strength and vitality.

Formulated with Sesame Seed Oil, Orange Oil, Lemon Peel Oil, Citrus Fruit Oil, and Vitamin E, R.A.O. promotes moisture retention and acts as a barrier to harmful environmental irritants. The use of botanical, natural essential oils allows R.A.O. to be a non-greasy, fast absorbing formula that will not leave your skin feeling heavy or oily. Individuals with severely dry, mature or damaged skin can begin to see a balanced, moisturizing effect on their skin after just the first application. It also helps to reduce discomfort & redness from sunburn, treatments, or shaving-for men & women! Even great for sensitive skin!

Daily use of the R.A.O. and circular massage can also help to soothe away acne scars, burns, stretch marks and deep cracks in the heels or elbows by sealing in moisture, preventing any further loss of critical hydration necessary for the skin to regenerate itself.

From the GS Archives when RAO was introduced in the late 1940’s:

We needed a replenishing, regenerating oil for the “problem zones” such as the belly and the thighs (cellulite!), an oil to take care of sunburns on any part of the body, to counteract developing stretch marks in pregnant women, and to positively influence the natural healing process of scar tissue (after the wound had closed and healed).

In my youth we only knew of fruits like apples, pears, prunes, plums, apricots and peaches, and although the fantastic scent of oranges, lemon and other tropical fruits were known, we rarely had them on the table, maybe as a dessert on a very special occasion. The aroma of these fruits was truly inspiring to me.

I wanted to build this inspiring scent into the new oil: a combination of orange oil, lemon oil and bergamot oil (bergamot is a pear-shaped orange having a rind which yields an essential oil). My oil should have a natural fragrance like a dainty.

Furthermore, because at that time there were no “light” preparations to be found in any of the leading cosmetic brands, I wanted an oil that would be yielding and “go a long way” for the customer. Remember, these were the years of the 2nd World War, and precious raw materials would not be readily available on the market. The consumer did not have a lot of cash for luxury goods.

While the post-war world was believing more and more in modern technology and its achievement I deliberately turned to the past for answers. I wanted to rediscover the true values for lasting and sustained results. I looked to the Egyptians where natural cosmetics and herbal treatments had been eminently respected, and I found old formulas that gave me the basis for the modern preparation.

Doctors studying Cancer create a New All Natural Essential Oil Blend to alleviate many skin conditions

GS Products, who has brought the industry Gerda Spillmann, and Quintascent LLC will be working together to bring NovaMoist to the Beauty and Skin Care Industry. This All Natural product helps to eliminate dry skin and may help to alleviate many inflammatory skin conditions while soothing and moisturizing the skin.

Developed by two physicians, Dr. Carlton and Dr. Safra, and inspired by centuries-old Tibetan remedies, NovaMoist is a blend of 100% pure essential oils. Made of 8 essential oils, Lavender, Rose, Geranium, Clary Sage, Bergamot, Juniper, Fennel and Sesame Oil, this unique and all natural formulation is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and may provide rapid pain relief while restoring moisture to the skin.  NovaMoist contains no chemical additives, synthetic fragrances, petroleum derivatives or animal products; it is completely natural.

NovaMoist was created eight years ago when Dr. Robert M. Carlton, M.D., board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics joined forces with Dr. Tamar Safra, a medical oncologist on the faculty of University of Southern California. They were searching for a natural solution in bringing relief to skin discomfort experienced by cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments. The doctors extensively reviewed the pathology of many of these skin problems. After completing their research, Dr. Carlton and Dr. Safra created a natural, safe and unique blend of natural essential oils that soothed, moisturized and brought immediate and sustained relief to the skin conditions they set out to alleviate.

With only one to two drops of NovaMoist applied to the skin, the natural oils can provide quick and long-lasting relief to many skin conditions, inflammatory problems and chronic skin issues.

May Benefit The Following Skin Conditions or Symptoms:

 
 
• Itching and Burning

• Pre and Post Menopausal Dry Skin

• Cuticles and Cracked Nail Beds

• Dry Elbows

• Cracked and Flaking Heels

• Parched and Cracked Lips

• Face Peels

• Waxing

• Shaving

• Radiation Dermatitis

• Lichen sclerosis

NovaMoist is designed to be used for many skin conditions and on all parts of the body; because of this people have found relief literally from head-to-toe.  The synergistic blend of these natural essential oils forms a thin, smooth, non-greasy layer of moisture and protection, which is rapidly absorbed into your skin bringing sustained relief to skin discomfort and promoting healthy skin.

For most applications, one to two drops of NovaMoist is all that’s needed, three times a day for three weeks initially. To maintain beneficial results, NovaMoist should then be applied three times a week or as often as needed.
