Glacier Water Micelles and Other Natural Mysteries
Island Rx Foaming “Glacier Water” Cleanser – All Natural, Chemical-Free Healing Foaming Wash for Skin Disorders, Itching, Allergies & Irritations.
Our micellar abundant cleaning soap was developed for sensitive skin like the face and neck. The micellar technology foaming applicator automatically dilutes the Island Rx formulation so that it can be used directly on wet skin. It is also great for bathing small children and babies.
Island Rx was the first product we developed. With over 100 initial version, the product was developed for Wendy Steele after her bout with Melanoma. The basis for Island Rx is a 300-year-old Castile soap recipe with holistic and naturopathic influences in the form of healing essential oils, a Micelle that resembles the antioxidant properties of natural glacier water and the addition of softening oils like avocado and jojoba. Keys customers have reported the reversal of common skin disorders like eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, acne, and skin allergies after just a few uses.
From 2004 Article: Micelles by Bob Root
There are two distinct places that you find Micelles. One is in Glacier Water and the other is Castile Soaps. They fundamentally trap and hold dirt from the skin and wash off with water. Simple, but a very complex mystery of nature.
A micelle, plural micelles, micella, or micellae) is an aggregate of surfactant molecules dispersed in a liquid colloid. A typical micelle in aqueous solution forms an aggregate with the hydrophilic “head” regions in contact with the surrounding solvent, sequestering the hydrophobic single tail regions in the micelle center. This phase is caused by the insufficient packing issues of single-tailed lipids in a bilayer. The difficulty filling all the volume of the interior of a bilayer, while accommodating the area per head group forced on the molecule by the hydration of the lipid head group leads to the formation of the micelle. This type of micelle is known as a normal phase micelle (oil-in-water micelle). Inverse micelles have the headgroups at the center with the tails extending out (water-in-oil micelle). Micelles are approximately spherical. Other phases, including shapes such as ellipsoids, cylinders, and bilayers, are also possible. The shape and size of a micelle is a function of the molecular geometry of its surfactant molecules and solution conditions such as surfactant concentration, temperature, pH, and ionic strength. The process of forming micellae is known as micellization and forms part of the phase behavior of many lipids according to their polymorphism.
In our studies of ancient remedies, we found that some of the most powerful yet gentle skin agents were Clary sage, blood orange, black cumin (black seed) oil, carrot seed oil, and avocado oil. When using on the skin in lotions or soap, they perform the same as some harsh chemicals in a slow but sure manner.
So, how does all this work to help acne suffers? We have found through our customers that they have developed a sort of regime that makes perfect sense to me.
They get off all the junk(dirt) and go clean, including shampoo, personal care, and home care products. You probably already get this because you are reading this. Then they wash daily with Island Rx foaming wash, rinsing and lightly drying. In the morning (some twice a day) they apply Solar Rx. Yes, the sunblock. Solar Rx contains pharmaceutical grade avocado oil, back cumin oil, carrots seed oil and uncoated zinc oxide. Those powerful essential oils soothe the skin and mimic the skins own sebum restoring good oil levels lost by being exposed to hydrocarbons, pollutants, dryness, and dehydration. The uncoated zinc oxide is at 18.5% by volume. Most zinc oxide based acne and skin prescriptions only contain 5%-6% uncoated zinc oxide. They discovered that they could get the same pharma grade zinc oxide in Solar Rx at much higher levels and a fraction of the price of prescription creams.
