The Importance of Choosing Natural Skin Care

While we love creating skin care products, we love helping people make healthy choices even more!  We are in the midst of what we see to be the green revolution- a time in which consumers are becoming more and more mindful of their purchasing choices.  The move toward a more natural and organic-based diet was the first part of this revolution. We are now in a new phase in which consumers are realizing that the same scrutiny needs to be applied to that which we put on our bodies as in our bodies. In many countries, such as Canada and the EU, products undergo...

Does the pH of a Cleanser Matter?

Guest post by Mad Hippie co-founder, Dana Stewart   Most of us begin our day by splashing some water onto our face. Some of us just grab whatever is handy and lather up. I remember as a teenager washing my face with whatever was in arms reach, which was often hand soap sitting right by the sink. “What’s the difference?” I thought, “soap is soap, right?”.     I was incorrect about many of the assumptions of my youth, and it turns out that this assumption about proper skin care was also not quite true. Hand soap, as well as...

Because many of Mad Hippie's products are designed specifically to help curb sun damage, and build the skin's natural resilience to photoaging, having a surfer representing Mad Hippie out in the water seemed logical....not to mention a lot of fun! Here's a great shot of the current sole member of the Mad Hippie Surf Team, Oz Merrell, ripping the central Californian coast!  Photo Credit: Jonathon Reis   We are excited to partner with Oz to help keep his skin protected while he's out there on the water!

Have Skin Discoloration? - Try our Exfoliating Serum

Skin discoloration is most often caused by sun damage.  When one spends too much time out in the sun, it can damage our melanin producing skin cells, melanocytes.  These melanocytes can then become overactive and start overproducing melanin in specific spots.  This leads to small, discolored areas of the skin.   Mad Hippie makes a variety of products that can help with sun damage and discoloration.  One of the best though is our Exfoliating Serum, which has gigawhite, a blend of organically grown alpine plants.  Gigawhite works to inhibit tyrosinase, a precursor to melanin, and by doing so, inhibits the overproduction of melanin...
