Feel the Perfect Cruelty-Free Power of Love!

By Renata Block, MMS, PA-C

This month's GiGi Approved Column is quite special because it includes three must-have products that I will be bringing into the market. I am proud to introduce the "Immunity Defense Box" that makes a perfect Holiday gift for all people you love. Wink, wink!

Everyone who knows me knows how much I love my GiGi and all animals, so it is an exciting time to introduce my cruelty-free products that will be available on the market in December. You also know how much I love being a Dermatology PA, so giving you ingredients that I am confident will make a difference is very important. Perfect Timing: Now that the winter season is about to start, it is a perfect time to offer you a TRIFECTA Box of goodies that includes products to give you an extra boost of protection during the cold and flu season. So not only will you be introduced to my pure Ocean Rx supplements, but be able to hydrate and protect your skin with my hand sanitizer and balm. Voila!

The Perfect Cruelty-Free POWER of Three: 1. Ocean Rx Supplements: A once-daily blue-spirulina supplement! Ingredients: Phycocyanin-rich Spirulina extract from organic Arthrospira Platensis. Description: This is the purest form of Blue Spirulina Supplement available in the US. Our analysis against others available has shown superb quality in comparison. Blue Spirulina is actually known as Phycocyanin, and this is a protein extracted from Spirulina, a Blue-Green Algae found in the Ocean. This recipe (aka Rx) is the purest form of this protein and benefits the body in many ways. Studies have shown it to be a powerful prebiotic, immunity defense, and antioxidant.* 2. Humectant Hand Sanitizer: Rx Spray, Splash one spray into your hands to help defend against bacterial and viral infections. Ingredients: Ethanol, Glycerin, Hydrogen Peroxide, Purified Water Description: Our vegan, all-natural, and cruelty-free formula is in accordance with WHO and FDC recommendations. Travel friendly and lightly scented Ocean Breeze with a non-drying and glycerin hydrating formula with 80% ethanol. Glycerin is a humectant and works by attracting water and moisture to the skin. 3. Emollient and Occlusive Hydration Balm: Rx Balm Is perfect on the go for the body, lips, and hands. Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Sweet Almond Oil, Avocado Oil Description: A perfect companion to Rx Spray with emollients and an occlusive to nourish and protect your skin with healthy ingredients. This vegan, all-natural, and cruelty-free formula contains emollients such as oils to soften the skin and beeswax, an occlusive to create a physical barrier of extra protection. These products provide you with immune support, prebiotic and antioxidant power from within* and your skin with significant hydration, increased surface lipid levels that contain powerful humectants, emollients, and an occlusive. Most importantly, they are made in the USA, Cruelty-Free, and are with equal safety. Diva Tip: To pre-order your Cruelty-free must-have kit, please message me at info@savvydermdiva.com.
