What’s New? Primal Pit Paste

Filed Under: Baby and Child Health,Personal Care at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Most deodorants still contain harmful ingredients like parabens or aluminum. These chemical ingredients have been linked to Alzheimer’s and Cancer but, for some strange reason, multiple personal care products containing parabens and aluminum are still available.

Why taking a chance on these products? You can use natural and organic deodorants that can work just as well. Lucky Vitamin is happy to introduce another top choice of natural deodorants to our customers: Primal Pit Paste.

Primal Pit Paste provides truly natural and organic deodorants that not only work but are actually good for you. All products are handcrafted from organic and natural ingredients and contain no harmful ingredients. The company’s motto says it best “Killing the odor without killing your body”. Most deodorants not only keep the toxins in by preventing you from sweating, but they are designed to absorb into the skin. And what are you absorbing? Aluminum, parabens, fragrances, and a bunch of other harmful chemicals.

Primal Pit Paste’s effectiveness is amazing.  These deodorants really last even for extreme athletes in extreme heat. Primal Pit Paste products will withstand all sports, endurance races, mud events, and basically any physical activity. Primal Pit Paste is available in Pit Paste Strong and Kids varieties. Finally, you can shop a healthy, organic deodorant that actually works for everyone: moms, dads, kids and athletes.

Plant-Based Ceramides For Healthy Skin

Filed Under: Personal Care at 3:19 pm | By: Kim McCorkell, Senior Editor

Cold, dry winter months leave our skin longing for extra protection and moisture. It’s easy enough to slather the nearest lotion on hands and body to provide temporary relief. But for long-lasting results, we need a product that builds healthy skin, from the inside out.

Knowing what to look for is key. The essential building blocks of healthy skin include plant ceramides, lecithin and essential fatty acids. Ceramides serve many important roles for skin health. Most importantly, they’re an essential component of the skin’s primary barrier, known as the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum’s protective role keeps foreign substances out of the body and locks moisture in.

Healthy skin has the right balance of three types of lipids, located in the stratum corneum: ceramides, cholesterol and free fatty acids. Together, these three lipids form glycophospholipids. When looking for effective skin care lotions that can protect, soothe and heal dry winter skin, you’ll want to look for a lotion that contains the right proportion of glycophospholipids.

When out of balance, low ceramide levels make it difficult for the skin to retain moisture. They’re also linked to skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. One of our newest products from Earth Science is formulated with this balance in mind.

With regular use, Multi-Therapy Ceramide Healthy Skin Lotion can help restore your skin to its optimum state by improving your skin’s moisture-retaining capacity. It uses some of the best natural ingredients to enhance its effectiveness and texture. It contains shea butter, safflower oil, sunflower seed oil and hemp oil. It’s a non-greasy, fragrance-free healing lotion with no artificial colors or parabens.

Does your lotion work to restore and sooth dry skin with natural ingredients? If not, stop reaching for temporary relief. Check out Multi-Therapy Ceramide Healthy Skin Lotion by Earth Science today, at 30% off retail prices at Your winter skin will thank you!

Frizzy Hair Rescue – Learn The Secret Kitchen Ingredient To Moisturize Hair Naturally

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Personal Care at 9:30 am | By: admin


For years I fancied myself a “Long/Frizzy Hair Guru” of sorts. As a cosmetologist, I know about the structure of hair and how to take care of it; as an employee of LuckyVitamin I have access to all of the best, natural hair care products. So, I was pretty confident I had all the answers.

Six months ago, however, I was humbled. While I was visiting a good friend of mine I mentioned to her that I was having a hard time keeping the ends of my hair hydrated and healthy. I believe my exact words to her were, “I can’t stand my hair anymore! I look like a frizzy poodle!” … but I digress.

Her response, “Here, put some Coconut Oil in your hair.”

Like it was nothing. Like she didn’t just reveal to me the best possible solution for dry, frizzy hair – a solution that is cheap, easy to use, smells great, and is a staple in my kitchen.

If your hair is frizzy, it’s dry. Period. A lot of people think frizzy is just how their hair is, and that there is very little they can do about it. Not true. The answer is hydration. If you look at many of the products on the market targeting frizzy hair, they all strive to add moisture through oils or other oil-based creams. Based on my personal experience I believe they have the general idea correct, but the delivery falls short. Let me explain…

Typically, most hair products just coat the hair cuticle and do not fully penetrate it.  This prevents the hair from getting the moisture it needs. Luckily, I have been introduced to a solution, that through much experimenting, I have fine-tuned to perfection. I know you’re jealous, but really there’s no need to be. I am more than willing to share.

Hydrating Coconut Hair Mask


1.            Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of Coconut Oil.

2.            Rub your palms together (the heat from your hands will melt the oil)

3.            Apply the oil to the ends of your hair and sparingly on your scalp and roots

4.            Repeat the steps above until Coconut Oil is distributed through all of your hair

5.            Allow to sit for at least 20min. Length of time may vary depending on hair type.

6.            Apply a generous amount of shampoo to scalp and massage vigorously

7.            Rinse and apply conditioner

**Note – You can alter the amount of Coconut Oil you depending on hair type**

So there you go! My wisdom has been bestowed to you.  Let us know how it works!

Lucky Vitamin Presents: Deep Steep

Filed Under: Announcements & News,Personal Care at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Deep Steep offers a unique line of all-natural personal care products manufactured to the highest standards of quality. Deep Steep products are unique in their ability to smell and feel just like popular luxury products, only without the use of harmful chemical ingredients. All products are guaranteed free of chemical preservatives, parabens, artificial fragrances, petroleum, mineral oil, sodium lauryl sulfate, and other questionable ingredients.

Deep Steep’s vision involves two concepts: luxury and integrity. The company promises you a retreat from the ordinary, and a refreshing level of quality with products that feel good, and smell good. Originally founded by earth-conscious entrepreneurs in 2002, Deep Steep is dedicated to producing all natural luxury bath & body care products that benefit both the consumer and the planet. Today, Deep Steep is operated by leading natural personal care manufacturer, Royal Labs Natural Cosmetics, Inc.

In cosmetics manufacturing, “preservatives” are used to combat the growth of bacteria and mold, which may grow in any product containing water such as lotions, liquid soaps, body washes, etc. Unfortunately, these preservatives are used frequently in personal care products because they are easy to obtain and cost very little. Synthetic preservatives are considered by leading dermatological associations to be the number one cause of contact dermatitis, and have been scientifically linked to breast cancer and other adverse conditions of the skin and body.

With over 25 years of research, Deep Steep’s chemists have developed the technology to create a 100% natural preservative system that omits all synthetic ingredients. Using this system, all Deep Steep products pass standardized microbial challenge tests for killing bacteria and mold, and honor all FDA standards.

Healthy Skin During Winter Weather

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Personal Care at 11:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Winter weather can be pretty harsh on your skin. So, don’t wait until February to start protecting and treating your skin now.

Exposure to cold or dry weather can cause dry, flaky skin. Most people normally notice the first signs of dryness in hands and facial areas as they are most exposed to winter conditions. Shopping for lotions and moisturizing creams is the first step but you need to remember to apply it often to maintain your skin fully hydrated. Lucky Vitamin offers an extensive selection of skin care products from top quality brands including, all-natural, organic, eco-friendly, paraben-free, and hypoallergenic products.

Additionally, dry skin can be the result of inappropriate nutrition. For example, deficiency of essential fatty acids (EFA) can result in dry and scaling skin. EFA supplements can be easily added to your diet providing additional benefits to your health. Essential fatty acids regulate blood pressure, immune responses and liver function, as well as help with blood clotting and breaking down cholesterol. Flaxseed oil and sunflower oil are also excellent sources of essential fatty acids.

Winter weather may also increase the risk for dry, cracked lips. So, check out Lucky Vitamin’s great selection of lip care products available at our discounted prices.

Smooth After Shaving!

Filed Under: Men's Health,Personal Care at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Aftershave products are one of the best ways to keep you skin smooth and soft. Some men may have to shave every day and the skin often gets rough and dry. That’s the perfect situation to add aftershave products to your shopping list.

Aftershave lotions and gels have long been a popular product among men as these specially developed products have the ability of soothing, nourishing and healing skin after shaving is completed. Aftershave products can offer additional benefits other than moisturize your skin and minimize the harm of shaving. Regular use of aftershave products can be very helpful to keep the skin pores clean and prevents them from getting blocked with bacteria. Blockage of tiny pores is the main reason for acnes and other skin irritations.

Today, several aftershave products are created with important ingredients such as vitamins, minerals and enzymes that nourish and soothe razor burn. Some products also offer antiseptic and astringent properties that calm small shaving wounds.

Lastly, pleasant fragrance is another great reason to benefit from using aftershave gels. Many products are created with wonderful perfumes and can provide a mild to significant fragrance which can be very nice for several occasions. It’s important to remember that a good number of aftershave lotions and gels contain alcohol which may be an issue for sensitive skin and can cause irritation. You should consider your skin type in order to know best aftershave for your face.

Give it a try. Start using aftershaves and your face will feel soft, smooth and relaxed.

Tips for Healing Dry Skin

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Personal Care at 2:38 pm | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

Dry, flaky or scaly skin is a common problem. Factors that contribute to the development of dry skin include exposure to cold or dry weather, and bathing frequently with harsh soaps. With winter season quickly approaching, the number of people with dry skin will increase. LuckyVitamin carries many nutritional supplements that can help combat this.

Dry and scaling skin can be an indication of an essential fatty acid (EFA) deficiency. Many people with chronically dry skin see an improvement after 3-6 weeks of supplementation with 15ml (1 tablespoon) per day of flaxseed oil, sunflower oil or other sources of essential fatty acids.  Long-term supplementation with EFA’s should be accompanied by Vitamin E supplements.

Another supplement deficiency that can cause dry skin is Vitamin A. Vitamin A deficiency usually causes skin with follicular hyperkeratosis. This manifests as small, rough, cone shaped and raised papules on the back and sides of the arms and thighs. A typical adult dose of Vitamin A is 25,000 IU/day for few months. There are many precautions using Vitamin A supplementation so make sure you consult with your doctor before starting any supplementation.

Some clinical information suggests dry skin can be associated with dietary factors.  Avoiding refined sugar, white flour, food additives, processed foods and allergenic foods have shown to improve dry skin conditions.

Winter weather also increases the risk for dry, cracked lips. Organic honey is a cheap and great way to remedy dry skin including cracked elbows and lips.  Just rub organic honey on the affected area at night and enjoy the benefits.

Multi Health Benefits of Coconut Oil

Filed Under: Personal Care,Supplements at 2:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Coconut oil has been a wonderful product in many different ways. Used as a natural supplement, cooking oil, skin moisturizer, and cosmetic lotions, a recent study has added another potential health benefit to this incredible product.

Researchers at the University of South Florida (USF) Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute enrolled 65 individuals with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s to measure the effects of coconut oil versus placebo on the disease. The research was sparked by the five-year efforts of Dr. Mary Newport, who hopes to have results of the study within a year. While there is currently no clinical data showing the benefits of coconut oil on the prevention and treatment of dementia, Newport, whose husband Steve was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at age 51, said she began to see improvements after starting him on four teaspoons of coconut oil per day.

Additionally, according to some scientists, coconut oil is a source of food that the body can easily convert into ketones. The USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute has already tackled other, out of the box ideas for stalling the mental decline of Alzheimer’s — like Ginkgo biloba, Vitamin E or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. “Mary has been very persistent in asking us to move forward with this and as a scientist I like to find out if there is any real scientific basis,” said Dave Morgan, CEO of the Institute and professor of the study.

Coconut oil is cholesterol free and multiple studies have found that regular intake of coconut oil may help with lowering bad cholesterol, boosting good cholesterol, and may also help with weight loss.
