We love the fact that Solessence is enjoyed worldwide, but manufactured right in Washington County, Wisconsin. Even better is becoming more of a part of the local scene, especially the fair and festival scene Wisconsin is so well known for! It really is great to be a part of a wonderful community.
Maria has been busy meeting so many of you at various events, and she always pulls a winner out of her hat. For those that participated in the last couple of drawings, here are the winners:
- 30th Annual Spring Gift Show/Milwaukee: Cathie Mistir of Milwaukee – Yuzu Gold Gift Bag
- Brookfield Gift Fair/Sheraton Hotel: Rebecca Stelmack of West Allis – Easter Basket
Congratulations, and keep your eyes out for Maria. Her next stop is tomorrow in Elm Grove , coinciding with the Elm Grove Art Walk. 80 vendors at this event alone! Please stop by and say hello, and enter the drawing.

Lianne at TheMakeUpGirlBlog.com now has an additional gig at HONEY magazine. This former model and current makeup artist has turned blogger extrodinaire, and her blog was recently mentioned at About.com as one of the top recommended beauty sites (many of our other favs were also listed!).
We zoomed over to support her spot and were pleasantly surprised to see she had linked Solessence. Thanks for that, and well wishes on your new endeavour.
I’d like to touch on something that has been around for a while but is not widely known. It is also a subject heavy on my mind (no pun intended, as you will understand later). As this isn’t a board for cosmetic review, I have not been sure of the appropriateness of the topic here. However, I think it is important enough to post for you to read if you choose, and take a minute to reflect on the content.
Nano technology has been one of the ‘trendy’ ingredients in cosmetic manufacturing for some time. Primarily, titanium dioxide for sunscreens, although there are a number of other culprits. And for some time, scientific reports have been coming in that these ingredients that are so small they are able to penetrate the skin, travel to the brain, and…collect in little pools. The end of this first intial report I read (nearly two years ago) stated it was too early to determine if there was any harm to this happening. Does it really sound like a good thing?
Sunscreen addicts, take note: nano technology is found in many types of beauty products, but sunscreen was the primary audience for this development. I urge you to review labels before you buy and to scrutinize what is currently in your stockpile.
A post from Friends of the Earth touches on this subject from the consumer side and gives a good overview in layman terms. Please, take a moment to read the information and come to your own conclusions. http://www.foe.org/camps/comm/nanotech/index.html
