What Your Face Can Expect in the First 3 Weeks
Most of you are trying real, quality skincare for the first time, so many of the instructions and the results are going to be new to you. It’s kind of like being asked to understand hieroglyphics – and maybe there’s something to that: skincare for men goes back 6,000 years to the Egyptians, who used scented oils and ointments to soften and protect t...4 min reading time

Easing into Retinol
It’s theorized that Retinol helps to promote the growth rate of healthy cells, thus making desquamation (the shedding of dead skin cells) more effective. Remember, as new skin cells grow and push towards the surface of the skin, dead skin cells are shed from the top layer. With healthy cells growing at a faster rate and old skin cells shed in an equ...1 min reading time

These four products do all you need, and then some
First things first, why do you need all four products? Isn’t a cleanser sufficient? Not really, no. Cleansers help remove excess surface oils and aid your skin in desquamation (i.e. the shedding of dead skin cells). Even gentle cleansers, however, may remove too much of your healthy sebum (a mix of oils and amino acids that act like cement between y...1 min reading time

Clean vs. All-Natural
The skincare industry is often guilty of what’s come to be known as “greenwashing,” marketing a product with a clever combination of language and graphics that implies a product is more natural or eco-friendly than it actually is. The worst offenders are often in the “clean” and “all-natural” space. But what do these terms actually mean? What’s the ...1 min reading time
What is Niacinamide? Niacinamide (sometimes referred to as Nicotinamide) is a Vitamin B3 derivative. You may notice that it’s listed low in Geologie’s formulas; it may be present at only a small level, but it packs a real punch. In fact, this small but mighty molecule is key to healthy skin. Bear with us a bit as we dive into Niacinamide’s essential...1 min reading time
Reduce Wrinkles on the Night Shift
Ever been cruising at 75 MPH on a highway late at night and suddenly found yourself stuck in a traffic jam? It’s a mystery until 20 minutes later your car crawls by a road construction crew, three lanes diverted to two. It’s so irritating you need to curb your road rage!

Niacinamide the Anti-Aging Powerhouse
There are several cosmetic claims attached to function of Niacinamide. Some claim anti-inflammatory properties that help mitigate acne and excessive oiliness. Others claim anti-aging properties via the molecule’s role in glucose metabolism and protein synthesis promotion. Still others point to a skin whitening or evening effect, on the basis of Niac...1 min reading time

Activated Charcoal: Effective or Hype?
We think it’s a bit counter-intuitive to include in a one-use rinse-off product an ingredient whose efficacy is time-dependent. Activated Charcoal is one of those ingredients. We think its use in cleansers is just a tad bit silly. Here’s why. Activated by structure, not by reactivity Activated Charcoal is not made “active” by its chemical nature or ...2 min reading time
What "Anti-Aging" Really Means
“Anti-aging” skincare products don't alter DNA, reverse aging, or replace skin. Those that are effective simply help stall the natural processes associated with loss of skin tone and elasticity. More accurately, anti-aging is about minimizing the appearance of skin attributes associated with aging skin, not in altogether stopping or reversing aging....0 min reading time

Shea Butter and Coconut Oil & Alkanes

Benefits of Retinol
While the exact mechanism remains to be clarified and verified, it is generally understood that topical vitamins and antioxidants like Retinol promote the faster growth rate of healthy skin cells while preventing dead skin cells from clogging pores. All told, Retinol helps reduce visible signs of aging by decreasing the incidence of outbreaks and pr...1 min reading time
Vitamins and their many forms

Adjusting to a New Regimen
Skincare routines are often built proactively: you notice something you’d like to change, then attempt to find a product that claims to help. Whether or not that product is eventually effective against the skin condition, you should expect some evidence of a transition period, for better or for worse. Why the transition period? Even those with the t...3 min reading time

Why You Need Two Face Creams
Both the Vital Morning Face Cream and Repairing Night Cream may be “creams,” but they are two distinctly different products.

That’s why you need both. The Vital Morning F...1 min reading time

"All-Natural" Skincare Products Explained
“All-natural” skincare ingredients may not be as green and clean as their label implies.

Aloe Leaf Juice
Aloe Leaf Juice is the first ingredient in both our Everyday Face Wash and Vital Morning Cream.

Truth in Peptides
Peptides: a fancy-sounding ingredient with a mundane (but no less important!) role. Other brands add peptides to the bottom of their ingredient lists, but claim it as a star-player.

Why we don't use jars
The function and stability of a formula is as much dependent on its packaging as it is on the ingredients contained.

Hydrate Your Skin With Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronate is a dream humectant because of its ability to sit on the skin's surface and keep water from evaporating over the course of the day.
