Hives from McDonalds soft serve ice cream

My son recently started randomly breaking out in hives. There was no pattern or logic to the reaction only that these giant hives looked like mosquito bites that were swollen, red and very itchy.   We started documenting everything he did, touched, and eat in an attempt to find the culprit.  It was a challenge for a 10 year old to keep track,thus I would drill him every day about his reactions and activities. Key Facts that I learned.  Anaphylactic reactions are usually to food, insect stings, and medications.   If you are allergic to something your immune system overreacts to the...

Thanks For The Feedback

The Rejuvenate lotion is the most amazing product I have ever used. I have been trying all sorts of products for a few dry patches on my face with no success, and this has been the only product that has worked.

We...

We would have considered it as a test if we could pick and choose some of the geographies to try and not have to commit to all the 2000 + stores.  They would also credit a percentage...

Sun Screen Development

Sun Screen Development - for the past 2 years we have tried to develop a natural sun screen with a minimum SPF 30 and h ave been unsuccessful in finding a consistency that I am happy with and would use on my own kids. The net is either the screen is too greasy and feels like a coat on the skin or too zinc link and not natural and organic enough to meet our quality standards. I have decided to put that project on hold as the technology in plant extracts advances and hopefully we find other natural elements that have...
