Our Charities

User Rating:  / 0

Today I would like to bring your attention to an amazing charity we are involved in supporting at 1Skin Solution. Not because I want to brag or craft an image but because I feel such an important charity deserves some recognition and hope that some of my readers may also may be able to help. Those who know me know that I feel very strongly about animal welfare. I started my journey from Vegetarian to vegan this year and 1Skin Solution received its cruelty free accreditation. We also make monthly donations to PETA and Animals Australia.

A few weeks ago I was introduced to another charity, Foster Care Angels by a business colleague who knew how I felt about violence and abuse against innocent and vulnerable beings. They are a unique charity in that no other charity does what they do. Foster Care Angels was founded by Kelly and her husband after first hand experience as crisis foster carers gave them some insight into the trauma faced by children and young people entering foster care.

They are unfunded, 100% volunteer run and rely solely on donations and fundraising to continue their service.

They run several program lines … Care Packages, providing respite for foster cares at risk of placement breakdown, fund placements for foster children to attend self esteem / self care camps and help out residential care facilities (group homes) . They are always looking for gaps so that THEY can expand and fill them!

Care Packages are their main program and the reason they founded FCA. They make 4 different age groups and they are age and gender specific. Each Care Package is a backpack containing comfort items, toiletries and self care items, school supplies, something to read, and something to play with. They cost us between $16 and $36 to make and distribute.

FCA is fully registered and tax deductible and donations can be made via a secure online facility on the website website.

There are currently more than 17,000 kids living in ?out of home’ care in NSW and they need our help!

They need HEAPS of stuff!!!!  The care packages are made for newborns up to 17 years old. There is a full list on the website  but this is an overview.  It is easier for the volenteers at FCA to buy toys and reading books for consistency but most other items are consistent. They need soft toys, torches, sanitary pads, roll on deodorant, journal, hair brush, hair ties, face washer, tooth brush, tooth paste, combs, school supplies, red, blue and black pens, lead pencils, erasers, sharpeners, glue sticks, rulers, coloured pencils, textas, highlighters, crayons, colouring books, baby blanket, baby bottle, sipper cup, baby dummy, … and the list goes on! They make up about 1600 care packs per year, 400 for each age bracket, but will accept any amounts of the above items. It all helps!

They also fund camp placements for kids, designed to increase self esteem and self worth for kids that would otherwise not be able to attend. These camps are usually aimed at 12 years plus. Another program is providing respite for foster carers who are at risk of placement breakdown. As foster carers, they know first hand how difficult this role is and “sometimes you just need to step away for a weekend and reconnect as a couple to be better able to care for the kids in your care.”

Remember these children have been neglected and/or abused. Nothing upsets me more than innocent beings being treated this way. Too often we see on the news young lives ending tragically after long periods of neglect and violence. This is a very important charity in my opinion and I am humbled by Foster Care Angels. If you would like to help this charity please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or FCA directly on the website here No donation is too small – they need all the help they can get!

FCA are fully registered and tax deductible if you or anyone you know is looking to support a local worthy cause, and being 100% volunteer run means that the money received goes towards our programs not to salaries :)  Their status can be verified at

New - Custom Candles

User Rating:  / 0

Since we bought out the 2 1Skin Solution candles I have had a lot of enquiries for private label candles. Since we are already set up for lip balm manufacturing adding candles seemed like the obvious next step. So I contacted David at Jellyweb (my web guy) and told him to add a custom candle section on the website just like the custom lip balm. I have started with 2 different packaging options, selected some gorgeous fragrances and also options for colours. There is a low minimum order quantity so the candles can be available not only for business but anyone who would like to personalize candles for gifts. We have a gorgeous Christmas fragrance!!

You can create your own customized candle right here online. Custom branded candles are the perfect lifestyle gift. Perfect for trade show giveaways, client gifts for Christmas, charity event freebies and more, promo candles are an affordable way to get your business the exposure it deserves.

We hand make our candles  with highest quality eco friendly soy wax. You choose how your candle will look from packaging to colours and fragrance. Spoil your recipients with fresh and gorgeous scented promotional candles from 1Skin Solution.

Available in votive jars and tins 1Skin Solution offers a range of colours and fragrances to suit your personality and essence. Go through each step starting with packaging and quantity, and then add the colour and fragrance you want in your personalised candle in 3 easy steps.

Once you have filled your shopping cart up with everything you want including your label artwork go to checkout. Select free check out mode. Amount will be zero as your order will be sent through to one of friendly staff who will then quickly respond to you with your quote. It is as easy as that.

Hello! I hope you are all well. I have some great news to share with you. I am so happy to announce that 1Skin Solution has received our choose cruelty free accreditation and is a 100% cruelty free brand. cruelty_free_cert.pdf This is a big deal to me as animal welfare is something I feel strongly about. All of 1Skin Solution Body products are Vegan. Our lip balms at present contain beeswax so are not considered to be vegan. All new lip balms in the future will be vegan though. Accreditation criteria at Choose cruelty Free is probably the most stringent in the world today.

Raylene BartonAlong with our luxury Bath & Body products we wanted to offer a service that can help others so we came up with custom promo lip balms for you to promote your business.

Promotional lip balm is a great way to promote your business as client gifts (especially with Christmas coming up), trade show giveaways, show bags and charity event giveaways. For businesses that may not have sufficient money for advertising, promotional lip balm will get the job done without spending too much. In this way, any product or business that uses promo lip balm is guaranteed that its name will spread far and wide.

What sets us apart form other promotional lip balms is that you can create your own balm from start to finish and you can do that all on this site. From packaging to ingredients to colours and flavours. Every body has a different idea about what makes a great beauty product and this is your chance to have complete control over what goes into your product and put your name to it!

I will be posting regularly about what ingredient goes well with what and all the benefits of the choices we offer. We will also be giving health and beauty tips. I have been a personal trainer in the past and have certificates in nutrition so we will also be giving advice on healthy eating for great skin and well being.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask – we are here to help.

We hope you enjoy our site and have fun creating beautiful lip balms!

Zinc Oxide and your custom lip balms

User Rating:  / 0

Benefits of Zinc Oxide in your natural lip balm

We offer zinc oxide as an extra benefit in our customised lip balms. Zinc Oxide has many skin care uses including being a very effective broad-spectrum sun filter, anti-bacterial properties and the ability to help soothe and protect irritated skin. It provides an excellent barrier to the sun and other irritants. Zinc oxide is included in the FDA and TGA’s list of approved sunscreens.

This physical sunscreen works by reflecting the suns rays away from the skin. UV Agent for UV protective moisturisers, sun care, skin conditioning and colour cosmetics. This ingredient has no limitation on percentage permitted in a leave-on product. Along with titanium dioxide, zinc oxide is considered to have no risk of skin irritation. It can also be an anti-irritant and potentially an antioxidant. It is somewhat astringent, antiseptic and antibacterial. It also can have anti-acne benefits and when taken orally, zinc may have positive effects for wound healing and other health benefits.

When used in sunscreens preparations it provides both UVA and UVB protection. At the appropriate particle size zinc is transparent in the visible light spectrum but opaque in the UVC ranges, thereby avoiding a whitening effect when incorporated into sunscreen preparations. Zinc oxide is also used when a white colour is desired for a product. In a lip balm this can help deliver a nice opaque tint when using mica. It is relatively non allergenic. It is also used as a thickening and lubricating ingredient.

1Skin Solution custom lip balm

It can be very difficult to formulate with as it tends to clump together making creams thick and lumpy and can leave the skin looking white and feeling chalky. Here at 1Skin Solution we use Zinc and MCT oil dispersion in our custom lip balms. This grade avoids that and makes it easy to create products with up to 20% Zinc Oxide as active due to the fine and regular particle size found in this liquid dispersion.

MCT oil is another name for caprylic Capric Triglyceride, a natural emollient extracted from vegetable oil that aids in the dispersion of the zinc particles. It has a very light and non-greasy skin feel making it great for sunscreens, anti-ageing formulations and lip balms.

XOXO to EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

User Rating:  / 1

Most people are familiar with Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the kitchen. However, did you know that it is great for your skin also?

Here are our Top 10 uses for EVOO for your skin:

  1. OCM, or Oil Cleaning Method, is a widely-popular way of cleaning and moisturizing the face using EVOO or other essential oils. Utilizing naturally-healthy oils allows the skin to absorb the nutrients found in these oils, as a deep conditioning moisturizer.
  2. EVOO is great for treating minor burns or wounds, given its antiseptic properties.
  3. For post-pregnancy, EVOO can help the skin regenerate, in order to treat unwanted stretch marks. In fact, many women use it during pregnancy as a preventative measure.
  4. EVOO’s natural UltraViolet spectrum protection is great for the skin, while at the same time not utilizing harsh chemicals. Studies on mice show that it prevents formation of tumours and skin cancer!
  5. Instead of purchasing expensive chemically-heavy shaving creams, EVOO also doubles as a shaving oil, while moisturizing the skin (Point 1!)
  6. Popularly used in cosmetics and soaps, EVOO is beneficial for these because it adds smoothness to dry scaly skin, especially in cold weather.
  7. EVOO also contains Vitamin E, which as we previously blogged about is a great antioxidant, again promoting anti-cancer properties (Point 4!)
  8. EVOO contains monounsaturated fatty acids, which are less easily damaged by exposure to oxygen in the air. Therefore, less free radicals and again less damage to skin cell membranes.
  9. To promote stronger nails and soften cuticles, add a teaspoon of EVOO to your hands, then put on some gloves. Leaving them overnight, you will eventually notice a difference in your nails – less cracking, breaking or chipping.
  10. The same can be done for your hair. Apply EVOO to your hair and wear a cap and towel. he next day’s shower may result in heavy flat hair, because it is still being absorbed into the hair. However, eventually, you will notice that your hair is silkier, stronger and smoother.

You can either go out and purchase a bottle of cold-compressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, or you can be efficient and purchase naturally-made high-quality skin care products that already have EVOO in them, like our custom-made lip balm, where EVOO is one of the oils we use!

Titanium Dioxide: Friend or Foe?

User Rating:  / 0

The benefits of Titanium Dioxide are widely known. It is found in almost every sunscreen produced, because of its high refractive index and its ability to absorb UV light. Most sunscreens designed for infants or those with sensitive skin are based on Titanium Dioxide as it is believed to cause less irritation.

Despite its harsh chemical-sounding name, Titanium Dioxide is actually very much naturally-occurring. It is the oxidized version of the element Titanium. It is a substance that occurs in nature and is as old as the earth.

However, in recent years, the debate about its toxicity prevails. Much like many things, the safety of Titanium Dioxide depends on how it is manufactured. The particles used in sunscreen have to be coated by silica or alumina, because in a photocatalytic reaction (exposure to light), titanium dioxide can create radicals that are carcinogenic and can damage the skin. Moreover, avoid Titanium Dioxide that is produced into the ultra-fine particle size (smaller than coarse or fine particle size), as some studies show this size allows it to penetrate the body better and may cause some damage.

What does this mean for you? This is the definitely the case of Caveat Emptor … Let the buyer beware!

You can use Titanium Dioxide safely, but you have to do your research. As buyers and users of products, we have the responsibility of researching what materials go into your products, especially those are absorbed through our largest organ, our skin.

Here at 1 Skin, we use Titanium Dioxide, but only as an option for those that choose to add it to our custom-made lip balms. You will be glad to note that the Titanium Dioxide we use is listed as a safe pigment, with no known adverse effects. It is not listed as a carcinogen, mutagen or toxin in any safety regulatory publication.

This does not end the debate, but rest assured, 1 Skin supports beauty that is “good for you”, and we endeavour to do our research prior to including ingredients into our line. 1 Skin absolutely insists on making pure, natural and simple choices to protect your health.

Tips for creating great lip balm – part 1.

User Rating:  / 0

When you are creating a lip balm to promote your business you first need to look at your customer. Are they male or female? Outdoors types? Health conscious? Are they fashion and style conscious?

So firstly you will need to decide if your customer will want their lip balms to be tinted with colour or not. Obviously men will not have a need for deep red tinted lip balm (my favourite). If your main customer is male and spends a lot of his time outdoors then you will opt instead for a sunscreen such as titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. The added sunscreen also gives a nice opaque white colour to the balm. If using either of the sunscreens you would not need to add pearl white mica. If you add any of the coloured mica’s to either of the sunscreen it then creates a gorgeous pastel effect to the colour.

Woman love a tinted lip balm and we have a great selection of mica’s that can either be used in a low percentage that will just tint the balm and not stain the lips or we can use a high percentage so you get a gorgeous tinted lip balm. When ordering your balms and choosing a tint make sure you put a comment in the comments box stating what your desired outcome is.

The Buzz about Beeswax

User Rating:  / 0

Bees are hard workers, but did you know they even work hard to give you great skin? Bees have to ingest as much as 8 pounds of honey to produce one measly pound of beeswax! They even travel the equivalent of 6 early orbits to produce that 1 pound, according to the eHow article on beeswax.

For this, we should be grateful! We at 1 Skin use beeswax as one of the available wax bases for customized lip balms. We do so knowing all the great properties it provides.

Beeswax acts as a great moisturizer, because its natural properties act as a water repellent. It is even naturally sun-protecting. Finally, it combines other ingredients well and adheres more permanently to the skin surface, thus providing protection against harsh environmental damage. Think about it: bees use this wax for their home; it must provide superb protection!

Not only does it soften the skin, beeswax is also anti-inflammatory. It remains “biologically active” and thus remains anti-germicidal. The normal vitamin A it contains is retained even after it is processed; this is vital for cellular development. In fact, the world-renowned Mayo Clinic recommends lip balm made from beeswax for chapped lips.

We want to also clarify the misconception that beeswax clogs pores and encourages acne formation. This is simply not true! When beeswax is used properly in a natural fashion, beeswax should not irritate the skin OR clog pores, so make sure you do proper research into the quality of your skin care products!

Finally, if you suffer from allergic reactions to bee stings, you should err on the side of safety and avoid beeswax-based products. At 1 Skin, we offer 2 other wax bases (candelilia wax and petroleum jelly) and 2 butter bases (shea and cocoa) to allow you to customize your product. Keep reading our blog and we will feature these other wax / butter bases and their benefits, in the future, so you can select the one that fits YOU the most!

When a skin care product claims to be ?all natura’ what they/we mean to say (at best) is ?nature identical’ or ?nature derived’.

?All natural’ should be the way it exists in nature or that it is extracted from nature without any chemical modification.

Here are a few of my favourite all natural products that can be great for you skin.

Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate) – is a great skin exfoliator. I use it a lot, either mixed into my cleanser of just mixed into a paste with water. Gently massage into your skin and rinse with luke warm water. Very effective! Sodium bicarbonate also has mild antiseptic properties so can be great for acne prone skin. It is also great in the bath to sooth itchy skin.

bakinf soda

Natural Yogurt - I heard of this one when I took a cosmetic chemistry workshop. The chemist who was taking the class told us that he was involved in a test where the panel was given a tray of different face creams and they were to choose what was most effective as a moisturiser. I can’t remember the exact numbers as it was a while ago, but a majority of them chose the yogurt over the other creams. The other creams in the trial were a selection of the creams you buy in stores. I have tried the yogurt as a night cream and woke in the morning to nice smooth skin! I have since looked into it and have found a lot of people also use it as a mask. It is high is lactic acid and beneficial bacteria which can be great for soothing cooling and hydrating inflamed and irritated skin.


Pure Honey – has anti septic, anti-bacterial and healing properties. It can be applied directly to help heal sores. Honey’s natural antioxidant and anti-microbe properties and ability to absorb and retain moisture make it great to treat acne, either dabbed directly on spots or as a face mask, and has been used successfully to treat diabetic foot ulcers.


Aloe Vera – serves as a water-binding agent for the skin and has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial qualities. The Aloe Vera plant is readily available to purchase in a lot of plant shops and is nice and easy to break off the succulent stem where the gel can be squeezed out. It is good for wound healing but the effectiveness is a little limited.


Sea salt and Epsom Salt – are both great wound healing salts when used in the bath. They also make great body exfoliators and aid in detoxifying and relaxing aching muscles. I love salt baths!!



Personally I love beautifully packaged skin care. I like the whole indulgent experience of it. But I also like to use these natural ingredients as part of my routine. Do you use any naturally occurring ingredients in your routine?

Petroleum gets a lot of bad press and this bad press is based on fiction.


I like to promote health and well-being. My products are tested on me and not on animals. I do not wish to harm anyone with toxic products – that would not be good business!! I take pride in the fact that I take the time and care enough to research ingredients and produce high quality products. I want my customers to enjoy my products!

The following facts on Petroleum are based on Science, meaning there is scientific evidence to back up these facts.


FACT: Cosmetic-grade mineral oil and petrolatum are considered the safest most nonirritating moisturising ingredients ever found (Sources: Cosmetics & Toiletries, Jan 2001, pg 79; and Cosmetic Dermatology, Sept 200 pg 44-46)


FACT: Petroleum is a natural ingredient derived from the earth.

FACT: Petroleum can help the skin’s outer layer recover from damage, reduce inflammation, and generally heal the skin (Source: Acta Dermato-Venero-logica, Nov-Dec 2000, pg 412-415)

FACT: The confusion around petroleum is also caused by some cosmetics companies and misinformed people who use the information about non-purified mineral oil as a scare tactic. This is considered “fear mongering” and “junk science”!

FACT: Mineral oil and petroleum jelly used in cosmetic formulas is highly refined and purified.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and we all have the freedom to make our own choices. Personally when making a choice I like to know I have all my facts right. I love petroleum jelly. When I had fraxal laser on my face it was the only product I was allowed to use on my skin for an entire week. I am quite sure my doctor was not out to poison me!

Thank you for reading. You can also follow my personal blog where you can add comments and ask questions.

We are pleased to present to you our new range of tinted lip butters.



  • Creamy texture with sufficient moisture.
  • Soft sheer colour that can be built up to vibrant glossy finish.
  • Delicious sweet flavours.
  • Easy to use for a casual look right through to a polished sophisticated look.



I have been working hard to create something that is easy to use. I love the look of lip stick but it is so hard to wear for me. I find it is drying and often cakes around the edges and corners of my mouth. Not very appealing. Gloss is great but can tend to be a little gooey and I can’t stand it when my hair drags it around my face – Yuk! It also does not quite have enough staying power. So I needed to create something in between with a little bit of something different and I have searched this earth high and low to find these flavours that I wanted in my 1Skin tinted lip butters.

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Petroleum, Shea Butter, Capric/Caprylic Triglyceride, Beeswax, Candelilla wax, F & C G Colour, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Flavour, Sweetener, Vitamin E, Grapefruit Seed Extract.

These tinted lip butters will retail for $14.50 but for a limited time we are offering an introductory offer of $11.50. That is a 20% discount. Please use the code 1skindiscount when checking out. We are still waiting for the images – the tinted lip butters are with our photographer at the moment and as soon as we have the images we will load them on the site.


From left to right: Almond Biscotti, Guava Lemonade, Strawberry Rose Champagne and Coconut Plum. For a detailed description go to the the lip products section on OUR PRODUCTS page.
