NeoCell Biotin Bursts is one of my go to products. The high potency chews have 10,000 MCG Biotin in every bite. The Brazilian Acai Berry flavor makes it taste just like candy, so I always look forward to eating one. It promotes hair, skin and nail health, and are low in sugar, free of gluten soy and artificial flavors.
During the media event, I was introduced to NeoCell's Derma Matrix Collagen Skin Complex and Keratin Matrix Advanced Hair Repair.
Aura Cacia essential oils is another one of my go to products, for using when I make DIY products like exfoliating scrubs and bug spray. Aura Cacia provides many DIY skincare recipes, including one they had given out for a hair protecting mist. Aura Cacia also introduced their Essential Oil Aromatherapy Mist Diffuser, Skin Care Oils (Soft & Smooth, Renew & Recover, and Shield & Hydrate), and Essential Oil Discovery Kits.
