They are chemists and they are also business owners. They have their own line of products there. The ladies behind chemist confessions which is an amazing instagram. As well if you don't follow them if you're all if you want to know the ingredients honey they break it down and make it fun and easy to understand and exciting. And that's why they're here. Please welcome Victoria Fu. Glory Lou back to Niche Butte. Oh they're going again and I think we made it obvious but we're just we hit record again. We had so much more to discuss. And we've we're filibustering we have lost. I will not let them miss her flight. There's so much more than last time. Oh who we do this all day. We could do it so can i? So we're just going to get right into it. I'll try not to be so small Taki because we have a lot to discuss and then we'll end up. If we have time then we can like you know. Ask about your hopes and dreams and whatnot. Okay let's get into it so I had the honeys ask questions for. Y'All and of course they came through because they're all geniuses and they are passionate space so they have questions. I have questions and let's get right back into him so this question is from J. Jane. Okay I've heard the chemical exponents make your skin thin and are bad for your skin over time. Is this true. No no okay. So can somebody their face up. What what does that mean? What does fucking of your face? So you can be overex- fully like you ruined your wall. He'll it will absolutely he'll But so cue to answer this question it does temporarily make your skin a little ner breads kind of just. It's getting rid of the top layer. That's already dead. It's already have dislodged. Anyway it's gotTa go and usually the correctly use chemical exfoliating. You get rid of the cells. That's overdue I use. Your skin naturally turns over. But as you age or there's like environmental factors it's slows down and that that's slowness still all problems like dryness and That unwanted skin texture so come Williams dare to help you speed. I'll get back to normal speed and you can absolutely overdo it so if you jump to a concentration that's way too. Let's say you never use any chemical before and you saw the kind of get cheap very tempting fifty percent college on Amazon That sounds terrifying. You might take away not just a self. That's due to be to leave my take away the stuff that should be coming up and protecting you from environmental factors. Yeah and what that means is year angry. Red Very vulnerable skin that it will take time to heal Our GOTO OCCLUSIVE. That we recommend in this case is Petra. Lod Good on mytalk trade of and heard bad things about and yes. That's actually the gold standard. That will help keep skin especially essentially seared very roskin protected. Yeah and I think what people forget is yes concentration matters. But it's not a competition for the highest amount out there. It's about finding and fine. Tuning your specific percentage so absolutely irritation honestly is bigger problem that we see in people's routine and it is such a big problem for people to manage because once you have irritation you spend your routine dealing with irritation focusing on fixing that correctly and no longer about like trying to do age. Prevention or target is concerned. So you really are taking a few steps back. And that's why we really try to emphasize just minimizing irritation as much as possible into give a little bit of contacts. And if you'RE NEW TO H. A. You can't use it every night if it's a around a five to ten percent range But even if you're just starting try every other night I If you're ready to bump it up and tries on the a little bit more efficacious you can use up to thirty percent. But at that rate it's not leave on product. You have to use it as a mask once a week. Moshe Max and Wash it off. Yeah Yeah Interesting Okay. A lot you out. My brain is like catching up slowly. Processed process wheel on the man. Who does every product say on it? Five percent ten percents it implicitly. Or no they don't and you know but I think the good thing and I would like to give us credit on. This is that we are seeing more and more percentages given So yeah I think just like Boris Ed. Aim for five to ten if you're a beginner And then just be wary of the twenty to thirty Percent Mark. Obviously it can be dependent per type of. Aj but we're not gonNA that's a whole rabbit hole other APP. Yeah and unfortunately someone's doing both in an hour. He's coming up at four getting. Tell me okay. Let's keep going. I'll see when they come in. It could be anybody this studio. There's always something going on. I hope it's Mark Office. Who has been in the seat? Yes he has. Oh this is from Denise I love you. She's one of my friends. But she's like the most supportive amazing. Is it okay to use? Nyah cinema ten percent along with retinol one percent. Do you alternate nights with them early. Yeah she's talking about. She sounds like a very experienced. Retinal user One percent is actually the Max that you can get point zero five or something flake. Yes Oh honey. It's it's great but No problems there. We actually do like the pairing of nine a cinema with with retinol simply because it does offer just barrier support So just a great combo sincere skins kind of under fire share shutting right. Wow Denise you're killing me. Yeah Oh my God expert okay. Yeah that is high okay. This is a question from cooking the account Vincent who we love a male honey. Hello my question is about the way. Actives or ingredients of formula can be delivered into the skin. Penetration enhancers like butylene. Glycol propane proponent deal at CETERA. Dial honey you got to brag to deliver the ingredients product into the skin for example can a ten percent nice city mode Sarum. He said mode by was probably an accident. Serum Without Penetration enhancers can be effective. Does it penetrate the skin? I literally? Oh it says sorry. I'm French we love you. We Love You. We love you and that was incredible. Yeah yeah he knows. Okay so true nerd. I'm like I'm going to be honest. My eyes crossed. I don't understand what the hell is a penetration enhancer. So that's a great question. It sounds like a porn to be honest. I can't hear that now. All my run for a pervert Scorpio. In-and-out ruin all right. So so your skin. Is Fatty Fatty there? The better job is to keep stuff out essentially water. And so that's why the top layer of your skin is mostly fatty acids colonials their minds. Which all are all water. We polling ingredients. What that means is water base stuff. Ashley doesn't penetrate your skin while at all so say no cinemas. A water base active. So that's what Vince is referring to is. Sometimes you add these solvents Play better with the fat ingredients to help the help. Your active guest through the skin. So it's a complicated question because you can't formulae without eh but they're there for more than just penetration enhancing purposes anyway so for example the calls they can help preserve your formula. Okay it can also help with With your stability.

"I'm a place to start in my add fresh start and go want you victorious that it's all about for us. It's all about becoming BFS was your skin. Well, you know, so if you can start seeing these symptoms, and will we want to do with the lying as to get you to experiment to understand the, oh, so when my skin does is telling me that missing human that it's in need that extra push for hydration or oh, it's doing this. And by adding this oil, it's helping ceiling in the hydration. You know, it's about trouble-shooting while you're scanning which is what we all do. But in so blindly trying eighteen thousand products. Yeah. Kind of our goal behind the the product line, and we have another unifying theme across a four products, which is the high levels of soothing ingredients. Because we will we will go through so shit every day and pollution and just losing. I it's just it puts a law stress on your skin and a lot of times within the industry ingredients will de-stress on the soothing anti-inflammatory ingredients are extracts, as we mentioned we have been feelings about. So what we did? And part of it comes from. Maybe I should say is. But a lot of brands out there. We suspect might just sprinkle and say, oh, this is a miracle track in it. So we put in these extracts really high levels and a very transparent levels. So, you know, you're definitely getting kick or being taken care of very that's the goal with the first line. We really wanted to solve moisturizers and kind of give users that control back because that's why ask one of the first questions was like what how do we get a cream or moisture has actually works. Crazy. They just don't and also like can we stop micromanaging our team like I that. I sometimes when I think about like the routines. I used to have before I would every day. I might be like, oh, maybe it didn't work or like, you know, you get this feeling of like, I'm not doing. There's there's no way of knowing if you're doing it, right or wrong. Right. So how? How do we get people to realize, oh, this is how my skin is taking to oil 's rises, how my skin is taking too, you know, waxes bombs, right? And they'll maybe they will be pleasantly surprised that oh with oils. Like, maybe it's not that scary, especially for acne people like me. I never thought in a million years. I would use an oil. Why? No. And it's because we grow up everything said oil three hold stay away. And I remember just like probably five six seven years ago. I had a friend who is very chic and cool. And I think she had just gone back from France or something, and she was like I have his Argonauts, and I wrote it all or my face 'cause I told her how good she looked. And I was like what a fucking weird. She's gonna break out so bad. Yeah. And then she looked awesome. And I started doing it. And I remember I told a lady at like, I was like shopping store, and she goes, wow. That's very European of yo. Yeah. Okay. I mean, and now they're everywhere so popular, but it's so crazy like we were told to avoid it for so long. So you have to like reprogram yourself. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. So that's kind of the goal, and you know, the dream of I think for us at least the immediate dream. Yes. To kind of round out. Some of the skin care fundamental. No, we're planning on launching up now. Now. And some AJ's maybe a j yet. Yeah. So we're really excited for that to happen. We so our follow are is extremely knowledgeable. We are blown away by some of the same yet. Right. Creditors. All my goodness. I'm like y'all wanna host because I'm like damn I didn't know that. But I love that. I love the consumers are taking control in educating themselves..

Incredible. It's been crazy name to do a lot of stuff that was out of our comfort zone. Yeah. So. You know, going back to moisture that was actually the first problem we wanted to tackle. So just as we split with the three categories we created three solutions one for each category. And just put in what we consider the best ingredients for that category. And and then we have a all in one moisturizer for people who are like, I don't have time to layer. Yes. So the method behind that is more. We don't want to be that brand.

"Got it. Which is a slightly bigger version of it, and it works, and it's much more. Much more gentle once cool is lactic also has a hydra has shown to help with hydration as well. Right. Your skin actually naturally has some lactic acid already a hydrating system. So that's kind of what it is. We wanna make fun of a little bit though for calling their lactic acid highpoint Z purified. Great lactic acid as opposed to the lactic acid. I found on the streets. All the lactic is going to be here. Works because people pick up the bottle. Ooh. If it's. Expensive product jeans is a hundred and fifty eight dollars for a one point seven ounce bottle. Yes. So again, it is a very popular product a lot of people seem to be happy with him. Oh, we we do say that. It's you don't have to spend that much yet, you know, lactic acid. I believe the ordinary also has a lactic acid product. So if you're you know, there are alternatives than how interesting do you think the nine dollar ordinary one is works? Exactly the same as good genes wouldn't sink xactly the same, but the difference be visible skeptical? Yeah. Right, man. You won't know until you y'all coup. Lords. Maybe I should buy us half my face on my face. See what happens? Interesting. Can we do that cream? Yes. Let's yeah. So the first aid beauty Oltra repair cream intents hydration many worlds so many different versions. Let me make sure pulling up the right one. It's this one. It's like a little job. Yeah. The tab and people love it. And you know, pretty good price. I have friends that go through this like all the time. Yeah. We are. You know 'cause creams are like a whole thing. You know, my say on the Queen creams, I talk about creaming eunuch, crim- crim- crim-. But if I'm being honest, these days, I don't even use much cream. I use oils, you know, interest so and you should cream then oil right to seal an in. Well, we we do recommend Freeman. Then oil you can also mix it independent. So that's okay. So we will say for this brand we're relatively okay with it. We also do like their cleanser as well. Pretty good option. But this one is it's a classic moisturizer. The cool thing about it. We'll point out some good ingredients is the Serra mine. You've also got the colloidal meal, which we brought up early soothing get says FDA designed skin protectant. Right. Exactly. There you go. So they put in the work to get that claim they deserve credit. They're interesting point now that they also have a land on which is actually also an OTC skin protected ingredient is already claimed declared oatmeal. They're like the Lantana just alone for the right? Yeah. Benefit. Yeah. So as a moisturizer? You know, you've got let's see. So you got the shea butter die method cone, those will be your Occlusive. They have squalene which is a wonderful in light emollient oil that really plays nice with everyone skin. So no issues there is. So this is a pretty. Cream? Of course, it's it's heavy on -clusive with the shea butter and all the fatty acids and the oils. So what this means is if your skin's dehydrated, this is where you will Duffin wanna layer hydrating Holleran Gasset underneath it. Okay. Yeah. Interesting. And then is it like I see it says water like what's the deal with like watering products down. No, no. So yeah. No worries there all formulas well, all creams emotions need water. So they're no watering down. And also something we should point out is that you can't pack give you don't wanna give your sin like one hundred percent active because then you have the other issue of like, irritate rights too much. Right. So if the exact concentration that's gonna work, but it doesn't overdo it. Right. So water will always need to be in there. Right for animals. Yeah. Creams to there's also the aspect of the problems of water, you create these droplets, what makes an emotional, and that can actually help your skin absorb these ingredients.

"Okay. We're back. Okay. Can we do the policy choice? Yes, because okay. So screen policy. I want y'all to school choice. I get more emails about policy and people are like why don't you bring up choice. I've heard nothing, but great things I've Hersely never gotten their products for no reason other than just I have a lot of other shit deter. I, and you know, we haven't I haven't met them. They haven't sent me anything, whatever. So the fact that y'all did a policy choice product. I was like, oh, I would love to hear your thoughts. Because like I said people love their products, and I hear so much positive feedback. So it is it's a great brand. We do think it's good. They are more ingredients entry. They definitely use some of the classic ingredients love that. So. Yeah. For this screen. I mean, it's a mineral sunscreen, which I want to ask Cal yet. And it's SPF thirty. So we typically recommend people to choose sunset. Between SPF thirty two fifty. And then also our philosophy is use sunscreen that will force you or that. You'll be okay wearing every day. You know, it's you're on. Right. Don't go for an CFO hundred and try to like force yourself brute force like put this on your face everyday. It's too greasy. Just not or like the texture the sand or see the oil. No worth it. But. Yes. So this one. Yeah. It's it's an antioxidant anti polish choice resist superlight daily wrinkled defense in this post. We the sunscreen self as a fo for its function is fine. What we pointed out. Here was you know, kind of this blend of antioxidants that they use these phenol. So like respectable you got the green tea polyphenol. So these are all great. But it's question was to like how much is in there. And so we just kind of wanted to tell people that if you are one who's trying to incorporate antioxidants, we would not rely on this product for the like stick to the vitamin C that everyone talks about still good. Yeah. At the right levels to interesting, but you do like the Brin general. Yes, they use pretty good ingredients a good selection, and they do share their percentages, which we love, right? Yeah.

"We'll all say though, they have on their websites as a ten percent blend of three acids. So the toll asset contents ten percent, which is not which is not super high. It's probably gentle enough for everyday use. But on the same token, you're not going to see the divisible results is a limited. Okay. And on top of that what we wanted to point out was the sodium hydroxide that being higher up on the the ingredient list. So you know that there are adjusting. So we wanted to kind of like call tension to that. And that they probably the peach for this was a little on the lower end. And they wanted you wanted to be ph balanced. So of was AJ's p it's an. Acid. So he wanted to be acidic. Okay. You want it to stay sit in order for to work. Right. Okay. And AJC in general as low as it goes, it's gonna work better. The lower the ph to better a works the stuff the good the peels again on doctor's offices. They can be as low as ph of one or zero close, right? But obviously a home use a little riskier show, the general recommendations like hovering around three point fives, probably acceptable for all skin types. Is that what this is? I don't know. It doesn't say I can't really tell you. I think we we just wanted to highlight. That don't be alarmed by the sodium hydroxide being so high up on the ingredients. And what is that? It's just a base. Okay, strong. It's a healthy. Just okay. Yes. So everything. What was I gonna talk? I was gonna ask you something. You said something about the interesting data. So because I know this will probably come up with some of the other things, but it's like some things have had extensive research done on them clinical trials icing. I mean, and some haven't at all it's like, you, you know, that that ingredient has been studied. And there's that it actually works and like in some things you don't agree point yet. Yes, exactly what we mean. Yeah. It's really sensitive data, and then also clinical data, that's our favorite type of data. So a lot of law products, especially antioxidants a category. That's bad offender. They'll say, oh, like all these data shows, a reverses timesaver cells, blah, blah, blah, and those are usually just in a Petri dish. So how it does on your face is anyone's guess, right? How interesting it's all in the wording, though. Yes. Read through. I mean, it is hard to like after starting to try to come come out with products are cells, and you start realizing the difficulty behind marketing is right. A regulation in place to kind of control that. But that's cool. Yeah. Like, there's certain claims that, you know, I guess with certain ingredients like, for example, one that we're gonna talk about laters colloidal oatmeal. It you can in order to say, it's a skin protectant. You have to actually do you actually have to. How do I explain this do a study? So it's regulated by the FDA Dyan. But if you don't call us in protecting you can just kinda put in there for funsies, but you can't claim that it's putting your skin so, but that's its purpose. Right. I so it's also vastly. That's how vastly and can are pro atom can be an OTC product. Is you want to file that it's a skin protectant it is but FDA regulated? So you've got to test it to show that. So that's what we mean is like, you know, these ingredients are actually their goods. So how do we find a cheaper way of utilizing these ingredients without stating the claim I just opened Pandora's box. She's gone. I'm telling you. I think you might have to change your flights. I I mean, that's so interesting, and I had no idea like about like they can't just claim things. That's I'm glad we're protected in some ways. Which is why though on the flip side, you also get those like science fiction's lush fantasy story. That's not claim you can Delsing. Ooh. This absorbed energy of mother earth. Stop us. Exactly. Cool. All right. Why don't we take a break when we get back?.

They have I've heard there's there sunscreen. Everybody loves their serum their other. So the product that y'all that y'all decoded is the glossy explicitly aiding skin perfect or solution.

We do end up pointing those people ask us about it too Dems, though, they're the ones who are the only ones capable of really pinpointing diagnosing their skin in like giving them the good stuff.

Not differentiate these moisturizers, you know, they do it by normal combo. But it's not as clear cut as that when you form formulate. So that's why one oily combo product maybe won't act in the same way as the next one from a different brand. So stressful. Like, Woosh, raise ation is. So different.

"Okay. We're back. Okay. So we'll let me see what else. I have here y'all are just blowing my damn mind. Okay. I have two more questions. I have a few more questions. And then we're going to get to breaking down stuff. Okay. What does it mean? Greatness. It will actually moisturised dry skin. I 's okay. Klis certain moisturizers, there's different categories. I've been on. Examples we just name Halloran gassing glycerine are your water based like water grabbers. Right. They go first they hold on the water. But if you don't help along with some sort of something we'll oily and heavier than just gonna evaporate. So for us. It's about finding that balance for everyone skin. So yeah. So what a lot of people don't know is that moisturizing ingredients can actually be organized into three categories. So as gory mentioned, the humidi- that's one then we have a mall lands, which are your light oil all those face oils onto this category. And then you have the Occlusive, which are those hedger Lada, heavy duty, waxes and bombs. Okay. So they also repurpose right? So the Amaleans they they kind of smooths the surface of the skin out a little bit of healthy glow. They can actually even act as like a light Occlusive. But then the Cluses are the real. I guess we're workhorses in that. They, you know, stay on the surface of the skin as a barrier to seal in all of that moisture inside and help from water evaporates, that's actually what hydration is about like moisture station is about is just like preventing the water from your skin Evaporating Allen, causing dry skin. Right. So sometimes it's like, I it's it's a simple concept, but it's a little misrepresented by marketing. So as a lot of times while hear people say, oh, I try to run like acid serum. And it wasn't doing anything for me. So I switched to an oil. But realistically might just be because they're not using oil to seal in the hyrog- acid to do its job. And that's why moisturizers are so hard. It's people you're constantly on the hunt for moisturizers because your skin.

"For and then from the Instagram success is that why y'all decided to start kind of formulating your own products. Also, we need jobs. The cat. Cafe was looking better. Figure out what exactly we wanted to do with our lives. And what do we do with the incident because it actually took up a lot more time than we thought. People underestimate like, oh, look, so you're so easy. Like you. I'm like, no you gotta post regularly. Gotta follow the algorithm. Hashtag. Lee and just writing the captions because I think one of the things for us. It was surprising as we end up writing these law law. We went back to you the first three POS. We're like, oh, vitamin C. Good for you, cool. And now it's like here is three like a wall. Tucks a Tex wall. Mom, word vomit. And just. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And just we look at like man, it's just gets longer and longer we keep saying, oh, we got to like dial it back. And then it just keeps go, right? There's just so much material to know. Okay. Let's talk about like ingredients and shit. Okay. So what's the biggest misconception that you? Hear people say the most about just skincare in general ingredients in general wants something that you feel most people think is true. But y'all know it ain't I think this way see less within our community. But there's definitely a perception that expensive is better. Okay care. That's a big ones. I feel that. I mean, I am a proud boozy Bauge. Something says three hundred dollars one oh shit. I need that. Good as you want the best. Yeah. Exactly. You want to invest in your face, and they get the kind of security from paying them. Right. You know, but is not the cow. Interesting. That's crazy because I've always heard it's like ingredient grade like if you buy target serum. It's not going to be as quote, unquote, good if it's because it's cheaper. So there wasn't hives. The ingredient grade wasn't as high crew technically what's happening is you've got to. Target gives you a plastic simple bottle him. And then you go to maybe Nordstrom, Nordstrom removing sales. And they're in these beautiful. Yes. Is getting fucking extra. Right. And it works like a beautiful jar. And I'm like, oh, I want that. But it's like that's going to end up in the landfill and dolphins going to choke on. It doesn't matter. And that the thing is in the bottle. True. True. You know in the bottle like, you know, probably I wanna say ninety gory can park me if I'm wrong ninety nine point five percent of that bottle. Those ingredients are going to be the same like, they're they're all in the same pool. They're all good all can be used like from target to Bloomingdale's fifteen minutes in y'all ready. Got me shook. Damn really interesting. Okay. What? Okay. Are there any total? No, no ingredients. Then everyone should avoid like, Honey. This is not good for you Ling hazier any definitive. No knows. No, no real. That's that's that's the problem with the current. Stay is throwing greediness under the buzz whole, right along more complicated than there's all this greenwashing and was. Memphis, then we're all like oh shit. Should I not be using sulfates in my shampoo, or like, you know, living in California, everything causes cancer? Yeah. So yeah. Yeah. Especially with that prop prop sixty five. Right, how terrifying NIA et doesn't help. Yeah. Yeah. So, and I think also because people get the sense that the industry is not very well regulated. So, you know, they're like, oh like no one's looking out for me. Right. Get putting being put into this bottle. There are laws that do protect from like, obviously, toxins and poisons from being right into those. You know, so there's that and then for the rest of it. Most of the time skincare ingredients are relatively very vanilla pretty mellow. Yeah. And again, this is shocking. Because everyone's like, your skin is your biggest argon, and you have to have the things on. That's another big misconception. Okay. How much your skin really absorbs and everyone will say everything you go puts on your faith bloodstream. It doesn't is. It's designed to be a shield. So actually, it's very hard to penetrate the skin, which is why you need like very high level active soc- those in great result while head. She's the best damn.

So actually, I we were thinking of leaving the industry. Can open like a used car. Lots just. I've had the like should I just open a florist? Shop dream many times about cafe for a hot second.

You have a philosophy on skin-care science. And what what is that? I think oh gopher okay? I'm victor. I can give her her perspective to for us. When we first started our perspective is we feel like skin-care science should be for everyone. There's I it seems to be a huge mountain or like a veil of mystery around what? And it's intimidated. So yeah, I Google all this shit. I don't have time. Nobody has sparked flock late thirteenth soulful late. I'm like, no. And there's so much noise out there too awful. Yeah. Yeah. So our philosophy is definitely making skincare science, approachable and fun. So everyone can kind of make the best decision. They came for their skin. Yeah. And we're trying to help people kind of filters and like. Kind of navigate through that noise. Yeah. It's so there's just so much and also bring it back to the basics. Yeah.

I've been dealing with acne all my li-. And now that I am approaching thirty. I'm definitely worried about these dark circles, and maybe some of these, you know, frown lines that are coming in. But otherwise. Yeah. Just like managing that combo skin. Just sometimes is difficult because it feels like you have to kind of change it up a little more frequently. Yeah, love it. Oh, Gloria how about you? What's up with that face? Well, my skin is definitely very dry. No, it might teenage years. I was considered the blessed one because I have naturally Predrag skin. So I didn't really have acne. But then bam now that I am thirty definitely seeing some smile lying's and finalize coming early with all the trial. You get dry when I did my Accutane treatment. I was like, oh, I love being dry. And then all of a sudden I started seeing line seeping in. My mom my needs.

I think you're onto something Kickstarter though, I'm telling you, maybe I'll be on shark tank soon. Okay. My first question, and this is a real question. Even though it might seem kind of silly. What does it mean to be a chemist y'all are both chemists? What is giving? Yeah. That's actually agree. Russia. Thank you. So do start off with. I Gordon I and she can also put in her thoughts did not plan on being a chemist think wake up as a little girl. Go I can't wait to go to school or wait to make products only, so dancer question chemists are the people who are in the labs making the formulas that go in the bottles. Okay. That's a very simple state. Yeah. I can understand that on your at my little brain around. No, no. And then after and on top of that will oversee kind of like the quality check in the testing that goes along with that formula. So they will, you know, make sure met it's being put in the right packaging ensures that the formulas going to hold up and really meet that shelf life. You know, they actually can do a lot more than just. Like beyond the bench mixing a lot of ingredients together. Yeah. And paying off the tourist saying there's actually a lot different types of chemist, even just within the skincare feel interesting and even not in the skincare in general. Yeah, exactly everyone so formulation chemists like me and Victoria liked Petrova. We are the people who put together these raw materials into the final product you see.
