Safe and effective, Topricin® Junior uses no volatile oils such as camphor or menthol or irritating chemicals.

Tired of whisker burns?

Give Dad a smooth shave with a professional shave brush and a shaving soap suited to his skin's needs and he'll be irresistibly kissable.  Not only is this a traditional shave method, it is also a natural way to shave--no harsh chemicals!  Bringing a shave brush across the skin produces a mild exfoliation; and those who use a shave brush are less likely to get ingrown hairs.

According to Wikipedia:  "The greatest benefit from shave brush use is the tendency to soften and lift facial hair before a shave. Applying shaving cream by hand mats hair or raises it unevenly. Shave brush use, however, requires agitation of the soap or cream in a mug to form a lather suitable for a shave, before application of the lather to the face in a gentle circular motion. Therefore, a razor does not need to be pressed to the skin in order to provide a close shave."

At Radiance, you can find a Kala style natural bristle shaving brush and three varieties of shaving soap: Bay Rhum Shaving Soap (a classic) and a moisturizing Goat's Milk Shaving Soap from Camamu, plus Morning Compass Shaving Soap by Ballard Organics, which is formulated for sensitive skin.

Tell Dad to turn the other cheek--cuz here come all the extra kisses

New Dosage Offering of Vitamin D

Check out the newest offering in our line of Vitamin D products—5,000 IUs of highly absorbable liquid D in a single softgel, from NOW Foods.

Vitamin D dosing levels are highly individualized, depending on age, skin type, diet, residential latitude, and overall health status. A simple blood test can allow you to determine your personal needs for supplementation with clarity, ideally in collaboration with a trusted holistic-minded healthcare professional.

Fat-soluble Vitamin D actually acts as a hormone, with vitamin D receptors found within many types of tissue throughout the body—including neurons, osteoblasts, muscle, intestines, immune, skin, liver, and a variety of endocrine organs. It is known to help regulate appropriate levels of both calcium and insulin in the bloodstream. Low levels of D have been associated with incidences of cancer, low bone density, degenerative nerve conditions, heart disease, and immune compromise. It is an area ripe for further research.

This new product joins the shelf with liquid D in dropper bottles, and vitamin D in capsules and tablets. All vitamin D sold at Radiance is D3 [cholecalciferol], sourced from lanolin. Again, we strongly recommend that you do not self-diagnose your need for high levels of supplemental D—please work with a practitioner to determine your current body stores and potential need for supplementation.
