Mom” was recently introduced to Fei’d™, a new skin care line that is revolutionizing the skin care industry! Combining both Eastern Medicine & Western Science, Fei’d™ (pronounced “fade”) uses active botanicals rather than harsh chemicals to treat uneven skin tone, hyper pigmentation, and other skin imbalances by rebalancing the skin function as a whole.

Why use Fei’d™ Skin Care?

99% Natural
10 clinically proven key ingredients
Certified by the Natural Products Association
All natural fragrances
No harsh bleaches
No hydroquinone
No kojic acid
No mineral oil
Paraben free

According to Fei’d™ Skin Care, in traditional Eastern medicine, uneven skin tone is believed to be caused by a lack of qi (pronounced (“chi”) circulation to the skin. To treat uneven skin tone, traditional healers therefore actively target the meridians that govern the function of the skin. Namely the Lung (Fei), Spleen (Pi) and Liver (Gan) meridians, which regulate energy flow to and from the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis.

Mom” has been in the sun quite a bit in her life, and has significant sun damage, so she was excited to try this new product! It glides on easily, like moisturizer, and just one pump of the dispenser was enough to cover her face, neck, and hands – all three areas that show the signs of sagging, aging, and wrinkles as people age. Fei’d™ does not tingle or burn, as some products for treating hyperpigmentation that are more chemical-laden do when placed on the skin, and “Mom” has already noticed a brightening effect on her skin, especially on the backs of her hands!

For postpartum mamas, Fei’d™ may also help to treat the dark melasma that can occur during and after pregnancy. It was these same dark spots that prompted Claire Gutschow, founder of Fei’d™ Skin Care, to develop the unique formulation using both Eastern Medicine and Western Science. To learn more about Claire, check out the interview with this eco-conscious entrepreneur.

If you are interested in trying out Fei’d™ on your own skin, you can enter the Fei’d™ Skin Care Giveaway on Tiny Green Mom through May 25th, 2011!
