Summer Time Refreshment

How to stay cool and keep on track?   At Bonne Foi we  know that eating well is just as important as good skin care. But eating well doesn’t  have to mean eating bland. Eating well can be tasty and fun.

Summer is most people’s favorite time of the year, but it can get pretty hot here in Southern California. So in the summer, most of us opt for grilling and eating light. Having to use the stove and oven on an already hot day just doeant appeal to me. We also know that this time of year most of us show our bodies more than we would in the fall or winter, and looking our best makes us feel better about ourselves.

Out on various websites there are great recipes that are fat free and healthy but still cool and tasty for those hot summer nights when cake and cookies are too hot to cook and too fattening for that little swimsuit.

Here is the recipe from

Ingredients Edit and Save

Original recipe makes 6 servingsChange Servings

1 lemon peel, finely diced

1 cup water

½ cup sugar

½ cup of lemon juice

½ cup carbonated mineral water

6 strips of lemon zest for garnish


1.     In a saucepan, stir together the diced lemon peel, 1 cup of water and sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, and allow to cool. 2.     In a pitcher or bowl, stir together the lemon syrup with peel, lemon juice and mineral water. Pour into an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Garnish each serving with a twist of lemon peel. 3.     If you do not have an ice cream maker, you may freeze it in a tall canister. Freeze for 1 1/2 hours. Remove and stir with a whisk. Return to the freezer and stir about once every hour for about 4 hours. The more times you stir, the more air will be incorporated, resulting in a lighter finished product.

Hope you enjoy this tasty, cooling treat. Share this with your friends!!

What Does Bonne Foi Mean?

Comments Off on What Does Bonne Foi Mean?

We have talked about this before, but it’s been a while so let’s address it once more. What does Bonne Foi mean?  It means Good Faith. My team and I thought long and hard about this name. We wanted it to reflect our commitment to our products and our customers. As you can well imagine before we chose the name Bonne Foi we bantered around  plenty of other names, but when this one came up, we chose it.

Our natural skin care products have been developed using the finest ingredients, exhaustive research, and made with the highest of standards.  Although our ingredients are high quality, it was important to us that our natural skin care line be affordable, so we made it our mission to keep our prices reasonable. We wanted a high quality skin care product at a reasonable price and we are proud of what we have made.

Okay, on to the second question, what does it do? In very simple terms, our system of products makes your skin smoother; it tightens pores, and nourishes your skin. It also makes wrinkles disappear, takes away dry, flaky patches of skin and it will eliminate brown sun spots. Bonne Foi’s Seaweed Extract formula helps plump up your skin, while the lactic acid product will gently exfoliate and take away the old, dead skin cells. Our Keratin hair care product infuses the hair shaft with Keratin, and makes your hair stronger and thicker.

Now, on to the last question,  exactly how does BonneFoi work? That answer comes directly off the pages of our website,

“n 2003 Dr. Peter Agre won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his ground-breaking discovery of aquaporins, the water-channel proteins that enable water molecules to pass directly through cell membranes. This work paved the way for Bonne Foi’s innovative natural skin care system, which opens up these water channels to allow even more moisture and nutrition to flow directly into your skin’s cells.

If you’re looking for a natural way to take the best possible care of your skin and hair, then you need to try Bonne Foi’s unique products. Our products are specially formulated to work for people of all ethnicities and on a wide variety of skin and hair types and tones, Bonne Foi has no harsh chemicals and no toxins.

Even though the surface of your skin is normally in a mildly acidic state, during the day your higher activity level increases this acidity. Unfortunately, this lack of pH balance – just at the time when your skin is also being battered by UV rays and exposed to chemicals, toxins and pollutants – helps to accelerate your skin’s aging process.… Read more

Bonne Foi’s mildly alkaline Cell Rejuvenation Tonic balances out your skin’s pH and opens up the molecular water channels into your skin’s cells, allowing the youth-enhancing nutrients of the Bonne Foi Day Serum to flow in. Many sensitive-skinned men also find that the Cell Rejuvenation Tonic helps decrease the irritation caused by daily shaving.”

Bonne Foi is not just a product which has been designed to make your skin look smoother. It is an entire system that will work together to rebuild your skin.  You can use each or the products individually, but for the best possible results, using all , or most of the products in the correct order is the way to go.

From those of us at Bonne Foi, we wish you a bright day, filled with smiles and smooth, glowing skin!!
