For years I struggled with my skin. Each time I tried a new product, which promised to do miracles for my skin, I was disappointed. I literally spent thousands of dollars on skin care products and none of them worked. When I met the man who is our chemist, and tried the products, I was amazed at how much better my skin looked over just a short time using the products. That is when I started to entertain the idea of bringing these natural skin care products to market. The idea was born from necessity, not from a need to make money.
Our product line will quite simply make your skin smoother, it tightens pores, and nourishes your skin. Bonne Foi’s Face Cream will make wrinkles disappear and take away those dry, flaky patches of skin. Our Seaweed Extract formula helps plump up your skin, while the lactic acid in our night time product will gently exfoliate and take away the old, dead skin cells. The Keratin hair care product infuses the hair shaft with Keratin, and makes your hair stronger and thicker.
“In 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 are reluctant to take us at our word, then order some free samples, try us out, and if you like the results, go ahead and place an order.
At Bonne Foi we understand there is more to gaining health than simply eating and exercising. Water for hydration, green tea for helping to keep away impurities, massage to break up impurities in the system, and a little Tai Chi to strengthen our muscles and make us flexible. All of these are now widely practice in our part of the world as beneficial to our health.
In the western world, many of us associate spices with food and cooking which is normal but very limiting. While spices add color and flavor to the foods we eat, most spices actually have a medicinal properties which make them ever more valuable.
For years I have told my clients who have been suffering with stomach ailments to eat a little ginger; Ginger has the ability to aid with digestion disorders and nausea. Studies also support Ginger as an excellent way to decrease inflammation and inhibit pain. In fact, a most recent study regarding the pain relief of migraines shows ginger powder to be just as effective, in relieving migraine pain than the most prescribed pharmaceuticals. While the ginger powder has virtually no negative side effect, most pharmaceuticals have many unfavorable side effects.
Also in the Ginger family are Turmeric and Cardamom. Cardamom has a unique peppery citrus flavor. This makes it an intriguing spice to use with desserts as well as main dishes. Rich in fiber, Cardamom also has been shown to aid in digestion and has been found effective in silencing ‘hiccups’. The seeds of the Cardamom plant have many uses as well. Chewing the seeds are an excellent aid with the cessation of smoking and in India, it is common practice to chew on a couple cardamom seeds after a meal as a ‘breath mint’. An anti-inflammatory, Cardamom has been shown to lower blood pressure and is especially effective in healing issues of the mouth. If you are not inspired to add Cardamom to your diet yet, the fact that it is high in antioxidants makes it a must.
Another amazing spice coming from India, is Turmeric. As an anti inflammatory agent, Turmeric can be used topically, as well as internally. In the healing of rashes, bites and bruises use Turmeric topically. As does cousin Cardamom, Turmeric ranks high on the list for antioxidants. As well, studies suggest that both, Cardamom and Turmeric, are vital players in fighting cancer and both are instrumental in the role of brain health.
Good health is one of the best ways to keep yourself looking and feeling attractive and strong. Our natural skin care products work on a cellular level to correct damage to your face. With good food, spices and exercise you can help the rest of your body as well.

Comments Off on 8 Ways to a Healthy Summer
Summer is one of my favorite times of the year, the next most favorite being the fall. I know we all complain about the heat, but here in Huntington Beach it’s usually fairly cool in the morning, hot in the afternoon and it cools down again in the evening.
For those of us with children, summer is our main vacation time. It’s a time to travel, to go to amusement parks, to head to the mountains or beaches. This is family time.
So what can we do to help make certain we stay strong and healthy for what is left of the summer?Eat fresh fruits and vegetables Take a multivitamin Stay hydrated Wash up thoroughly after spending time in public places, and when we are in the large crowd at amusement parks, use sanitizer wipes to keep hands clean Use sunscreen, sunburns are a big cause of pain and discomfort in the immediate, and in the long run set us up for skin cancer STAY Hydrated!! Don’t wait until you are thirsty to drink water. And if you plan on being out in the sun for the entire day, make up some water bottles with plenty of ice and maybe even some lemonade. Children will only drink so much water, but some lemonade that has plenty of ice in it is better than becoming dehydrated. Try to keep stress levels low. It can be difficult with working parents to coordinate day care for children during the summer. Network with other working parents and see if you can help each other out. Instead of each of you having to miss work, perhaps each person takes one day off and takes the others children. Let your children play. Don’t try to make the perfect summer, just have some days where there isn’t a grand plan. Trying too hard to fill every minute with activity can be overwhelming for you and your children
At Bonne Foi, we are lucky to be located in Huntington Beach. Our company is in a location that other’s come to for a vacation, and sometimes a walk along the beach, snow cone in hand, can be the perfect way to spend the afternoon.
Don’t forget your sunscreen, your Keratin Hair treatment, and your Bonne Foi moisture cream.
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, https://bonnefoi.com
“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.

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.

One of the best ways to get more antioxidants is to eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.
“I recommend going for as much variety and color as possible in your diet,” Day says. “Try snacking on blueberries, strawberries, grapefruit, kale, spinach, and different kinds of peppers.” She also suggests adding a little tomato paste, which contains an antioxidant called lycopene, to stir-fried vegetables, brown rice, or quinoa.
Another good idea is to stock your grocery cart with foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, including wild salmon, sardines, fortified eggs, and walnuts.
“Omega-3 fatty acids help keep the top outer layer of the skin strong and intact so that external toxins and pollutants are kept out,” says dermatologist David E. Bank, MD, director of the Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery in Mount Kisco, N.Y.”
We have also read studies that show as you eat more of the brightly colored fruits and veggies, your skin tone will actually change. Eating more fruits and veggies with deep red colors, like red peppers, cherries, strawberries will help make your skin tone appear warmer and a little rosier.
What it really boils down to is letting some of the processed foods fade out of your diets and bringing in more fresh foods. That not only helps your heart and body, but it keeps your skin looking healthier and stronger as well.
Comments Off on Bonne Foi Cell Rejuvenation Tonic
Bonne Foi Cell Rejuvenation Tonic was formulated by our lab chemist based on a 2003 Nobel Prize winning discovery. Peter Agre’s research focused the ability to re-hydrate our skin, even on the cellular level. His award winning research proved that using the right formula, one that could deliver water-channel proteins thus enabling water molecules to pass directly through the cell’s membranes. This formula allows even more moisture and nutrition to flow directly into your skin’s cells.
When we are younger, the cells that our skin is made up of are full of moisture. They are at their prime and full of that moisture, so our skin looks smooth and unlined. As we age, the sun, stress, poor food choices, they all add up and our cells don’t have as much moisture so our skin will sag. It is kind of like wearing a certain size of clothes for years and then losing a ton of weight. The clothes, or in this case our skin, maintain their size has lost its mass, so the clothes will hang loosely on their frame. The same thing happens with our skin. Now, usually we would just toss the old clothes aside and buy something that fits better but this is our skin, so what do we do?
We have learned that eating healthy, colorful fruits and veggies, staying out of the sun, or at least well protected with a good quality sunscreen, and keeping ourselves well hydrated all help to keep our skin looking good longer. It’s not always easy to remember sunscreen and healthy food in a busy lifestyle, but not impossible. When you have some free time, make a list of your favorite healthy foods and drinks, then keep them on your morning path. Take an orange to work, a veggie salad to school and have a vegan burrito for dinner. It will keep your body stocked up on those vitamins you miss with a burger and fries.

Comments Off on The Best Natural Skin Care, Made in the USA
Our lab chemist has been doing skin care and anti-aging research for over a decade. In fact, his unique 24 hour pH balance theory has been inspiring his colleagues in the anti-aging research field for many years. He based our formulas on three scientific principles:Your skin care shouldn’t just make your face feel soft, it should nourish your skin. Our Bonne Foi products heal and protect your skin from the inside out by “opening up the molecular water-channel pathways (the ones discovered by Dr. Peter Agre in his Nobel Prize-winning research) and deliver rejuvenating nutrients all the way into the heart of your skin’s cells.” Our Products are formulated to work WITH your skin’s natural pH, balancing it out during the day and intensifying it at night. Click here to learn more. Brown seaweed extract is beneficial for your skin: Scientists have found that marine plant extracts exhibit hydrating, collagen boosting, cell renewal enhancement, and antioxidant properties. Bonne Foi uses a unique formulation of highly concentrated brown seaweed extracts. These extracts come from special brown seaweed that grows deep in the ocean where the plants are exposed to far fewer contaminants than other seaweeds and therefore contain a more concentrated supply of skin nutrients.
We named our company Bonne Foi because it means Good Faith. For us good faith represents how we feel about our products, and how we want our customers to feel as well. Our company was founded because we saw a need in the market for high quality skin care products that are not only natural and earth-friendly, but that also successfully work to help reduce the aging process.
At Bonne Foi we wish you and yours a very happy holiday season, and we hope that you go into the new year with health and hope.

Comments Off on Protect Your Skin From Signs of Aging
Wrinkles and age spots have long been assumed to be inevitable signs of growing older. Bonne Foi’s skin care proves that it’s simply not true. We now know that some of these signs of aging can be prevented simply by using sunscreen when you go outside. If you do get brown spots and wrinkles, you can reverse those simply by faithfully using our products.
At Bonne Foi, we developed our product line based on Nobel Prize-winning research which proved that the formulation in a skin care product can be effective right down at the cellular level. We have seen firsthand how after using our skin care products for less than a month, our customers have seen their brown age spots disappear completely. Our other products work together to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, and our Keratin Hair treatment has helped people with dry, brittle hair to have soft, shiny hair once again.
The Bonne Foi skin care line also helps restore that youthful glow and it plumps up your skin cells so they appear fuller and your skin looks soft, not dried out. But skin care can’t do the whole job alone. Studies show that good nutrition plays a major role in how your skin looks and how you feel. Eating these types of foods will aid in keeping your skin and mind healthy. Check out this list from WebMd:“Fish. Follow the guidelines of the American Heart Association and eat twice weekly, especially the fatty kind that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. This is a powerful anti-inflammatory food that offers a multitude of health benefits. Fruits and vegetables are powerhouses of antioxidants. Aim for a variety of colorful produce. Enjoy at least 5 servings per day for the maximum benefits. Whole grains provide soluble fiber to help lower blood cholesterol levels, and also have phytonutrient content equal to any fruit or vegetable. Strive for at least 3 daily servings. Legumes are unsung heroes, packed with nutrients similar to fruits and vegetables and with very few calories. Add them to your diet 3 to 4 times a week. Yogurt has all the benefits of dairy foods, plus probiotics that help add healthy bacteria to the intestines. Moores recommends eating a yogurt with active cultures as one of your 3 dairy servings each day. Nuts are a great source of B vitamins that are good for your heart and your brain. The healthy fats in nuts benefit the elastin and collagen in skin, helping to maintaining skin’s structure and keep it resilient. Small portions are advised, as nuts are high in calories. Water is essential for hydration of the skin, muscles, circulation, and all organs in the body. Enjoy 3-4 glasses of pure water in addition to other liquids and watery foods.”
Bonne Foi loves helping people look and feel good. That is the whole reason we developed and brought this product line to market. If you want better looking skin, whether you are 25 or 65, go to our site: www.bonne-foi and order some today.
Anti-aging and looking younger is not just about Anti-aging skin care lines–it’s also about how you take care of yourself. We hope you take the best of care, and stay around a good long time.
