Jan Marini Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant

 Everyday when I go running I slather on some sunscreen and I think this one may be my new favorite! I love how light it is and that it feels very hydrating to the point where in the Summer I could just use this as a sunscreen and moisturizer. Definitely my must-have for spring and summer outdoor activities!

 I love a great face mask especially one that is made with natural ingredients and smells amazing! My favorite out of the two was the purifying charcoal mask. It goes on super smooth and feels very hydrating while it sits which is a change from normal masks that I really enjoyed! Best of all, my skin was glowing and very fresh looking after I removed the mask, SO GOOD.

                                                      Learn About the Brand

Neutrogena, headquartered in Los Angeles, California, began its success story when, in 1930, founder Emanuel Stolaroff, started a small specialty cosmetic company called Natone. In the early years, Natone was a supplier to beauty salons usually associated with the glamour of the film industry. By the 1940's, Natone began manufacturing and distributing cosmetics for the retail market.

In 1954 on a business trip to Europe, Stolaroff heard of an unusual soap developed by Dr. Edmond Fromont, a Belgian cosmetic chemist. Fromont's patented formula produced a mild, clear soap that rinsed quickly and easily from the skin, leaving essentially no soap residue. Eleven minutes after washing with this unique soap, the skin was able to return to its normal pH - just one minute more than if it had been washed with only plain water!

Stolaroff believed there was a market for such a high quality soap and arranged to import and distribute the Neutrogena brand product in the United States. Setting the course for future growth, he emphasized the transparency of the soap to clearly communicate its difference. In addition, he targeted sales to new distribution channels-department stores and better drug stores.

By 1962, Neutrogena soap was so synonymous with the company image that the company was officially changed to Neutrogena. Lloyd Cotsen, an Integral member of the Neutrogena family, became president of the company in 1967 and made another key decision that would profoundly influence the future of the company-to promote the benefits of Neutrogena soap to the medical profession. The strong relationship between Neutrogena and dermatologists gave the company an exceptional competitive advantage.

As Neutrogena gained a unique acceptance by the medical profession, a new emphasis was directed toward marketing and research efforts to create a line of safe, mild, premium quality skincare products. In 1973, the company went public and by 1980, Neutrogena entered the haircare market.

Today, Neutrogena manufactures and markets a line of premium priced skin and hair care products which are distributed in more than 70 countries.

Now, more than ever, today's consumers equate health with beauty. Neutrogena stands naturally poised for tremendous future growth and an ever increasing number of satisfied customers.
