Skin care is competitive and consumers are savvy. They are becoming more and more educated thanks to the Internet and the wide array of information, good and bad, that it provides. With so many abundant choices today in the skin care world, multiple reviews online, and sites that dedicate themselves to refuting and supporting their favorite brands, it is important to know what you are really seeking in a skin care line, and even down to a skin care line’s key ingredients. What matters to you….think about it!
One of our star ingredients in our best-selling Hard Night Good Morning Daytime Moisturizer, red algae, is one that you can readily research online to find its features and benefits. There are many types of algaes and red algaes, but in my opinion, and in many other people’s opinion online, ours is the best. We use Alguard®, made by Frutarom. Frutarom has created Alguard® by extracting a polysaccharide from the red algae that protects not only the algae in nature from draught, extremes in temperature and environmental changes and the sun’s harmful UVB rays, but will also protect your skin.
Here is a run-down of what Alguard® is and what is can do for your skin from www.articlearn.com.
And from www.a-read.com:
Benefits of Using Alguard™
“The polysaccharide has multiple uses and benefits for the skin. For instance, it can protect the skin against irritants and prevent it from oxidation. It protects the skin against the damaging rays of the sun and prevents the adhesion of microorganisms on the skin surface. When it comes to beauty, it enhances the texture of the skin by reducing roughness seconds after application. It also reduces the visibility of wrinkles to promote a younger look and gives the skin surface a glossy appearance.”
Alguard® is the perfect ingredient for sensitive and acne prone skin. Believe it or not, at least half of the women that I meet and advise in the skin care business have sensitive skin, rosacea or acne…many times adult onset acne. One of the dermatologists I studied under made a very interesting point when he said, “sensitive skin always is made, not born.” He goes on to point out that “except for those skin conditions associated with an immune problem such as atopic dermatitis and a few others, sensitive skin results from three factors: environmental insults, too much soap and too many cosmetic products.
Our all natural Daytime Moisturizer has been formulated with Alguard® specifically for sensitive skin and skin prone to acne, rosacea or any other irritating conditions. It can be used morning and night, and provides a natural way to get a little sun protection without using an SPF. This is the only moisturizer I pack when I travel, as it covers it all… moisturization, hydration, anti-inflammation and is an anti-oxidant. It is great for rough skin, and is the perfect anti-aging ingredient to combat wrinkles and keep our skin smooth as we age.
Everyone can use Hard Night Good Morning’s Daytime Moisturizer.It is the perfect product to try if you are new to the Hard Night Good Morning all natural skin care line or just a skin care junkie! Trust me…you will become and addict!

There’s busy, and then there is “dashing in heels” busy.
We know our founder, D’Andra Simmons, would agree with Gretchen Bauer, founder of BSWANKY, when she says that every day running your own business is an adventure...an adventure that absolutely requires dashing in heels.
