Glycation is this year’s buzzword according to an article by Nicole Altavilla in American Spa Magazine.
Glycation is the process in which a sugar molecule (fructose or glucose) bonds to a protein or lipid molecule. This bond forms a HARMFUL new molecule called Advanced Glycation End Products or AGEs.
As AGEs accumulate they cause permanent damage to other surrounding proteins. The more sugar we ingest, the more AGEs develop. AGEs don’t just cause damage to the protein in your blood stream though, they also cause damage and inflammation of collagen and elastin in your skin.
Elliot Milstein, president and CEO of Biopelle, was quoted in the article stating, “Some new skincare products actually now include sugar in the list of ingredients. Nothing could be worse for the skin.”
That is why many skincare brands are jumping on the anti-sugar bandwagon and focusing on ingredients that help to reverse the damage caused by Glycation and AGEs. According to the American Spa Magazine article, some of these reversing ingredients include kombucha black tea ferment, omega-6 essential fatty acids, peptides, and tumeric.
Anti-glycation services are still hard to find on treatment menus as it is a growing area of research. SkinCatering’s esthetics expert, Kimberly, offers an all-natural White Willow Bark Facial treatment which is excellent in combating and reversing the effects of AGEs. You can find more information on this specific service here.

Last week we introduced you to STORY TELLER™ Sports Gel. This week we present to you a new member of our Sports Line, BODY STICK for Body Sweat and Chafing.
Sweat builds in places you wouldn’t even think of. Especially if you’re a woman over 30, or a man of any age. This sweating is such a nuisance when you are hitting it hard at the gym, doing any physical activity or even sitting in that intense board meeting for an extended period of time. That is why we created the BODY STICK! SkinCatering’s new BODY STICK for areas that sweat and chaff is seriously so cool it doesn’t even need a name. We just call it like it is -BODY STICK – because you can use it ALL OVER your body.
First hand experience from the formulators–
Our amazing Esthetician, Kim, uses the body stick as an all over deodorant.
“I have been using it every day. I used it in the 90 degree heat this past week on my vacation to South Carolina. I love that I can use it as an effective deodorant WITH OUT clogging my sweat glands like regular deodorants do!”
Dori, our Office Goddess, was starting to notice her husband complain of sweating and chafing while working at the lumber yard. She gave him the BODY STICK to help relieve the chafing and rash he experienced between his thighs from standing and walking in a hot warehouse all night. He was elated that the chafing lessened and the rash diminished after just one night using the BODY STICK. She herself uses the BODY STICK to help relieve under-boob sweat through out the day.
Thats right ladies! The BODY STICK can be used for that pesky under-boob sweat that we all hate!
These are just a few examples of the many areas you can use SkinCatering’s BODY STICK. It also comes in a convenient TRAVEL SIZE. Pop it in your purse or your backpack to have it with you whenever you need it.
Made with only all-natural ingredients, BODY STICK warms to your skin and glides on for a lasting, SOFT finish. Because the BODY STICK isn’t a regular deodorant, it may need a few seconds to warm to your skin before gliding on like butter. With only 7 pronounceable ingredients that will help save your skin from the torture that is sweating and chafing in those odd places!

STORY TELLER™ GEL is a Sports Gel for Sore Bodies. It differs from STORY TELLER™ cream in that it is a fast drying concentrated gel, it is easy to transport, and it doesn’t melt! Perfect for those who love to hike or work outdoors! This gel comes in a full 8oz bottle or a travel 2oz bottle, perfect for tossing in your bag.
This concentrated sports gel uses an Aloe base that we make on site so there are NO PRESERVATIVES. When you use this gel you get all of the inflammation and soreness relieving benefits of STORY TELLER™ cream in a cooling, fast drying gel.
