Pacific Shaving Co. develops line of caffeinated shaving products

BY Antoinette Alexander

NEW YORK — Pacific Shaving Co., a manufacturer of natural, eco-friendly shaving products, has just launched its new caffeinated shaving cream and aftershave for men and women. 

Caffeine is already a "go-to" ingredient in everything from eye creams to anti-aging lotions to concealers to moisturizers and now it has found its way into the shaving segment.
 
Caffeine is a vasoconstrictor and antioxidant that helps reduce the appearance of redness and keeps your skin looking and feeling healthy. Pacific Shaving Co.’s products utilize the benefits of naturally derived caffeine from coffee beans to help liven up the morning shave routine. 
 

"Caffeine is a versatile ingredient with many health benefits," said Stan Ades, founder of Pacific Shaving Co. "When topically applied, the benefits of caffeine can take effect quickly. With 50 mg of naturally derived caffeine (an espresso contains approximately 60 mg), Pacific Shaving Company’s new products are not yet likely to replace your morning coffee routine, but they will help get you going in the morning — while providing an exceptional shaving experience."

Boulder Canyon introduces ‘on-trend’ chip

BY Ryan Chavis

PHOENIX — Boulder Canyon Foods, a snack food manufacturer, on Tuesday introduced Ancient Grains, a whole-grain snack chip that combines grains and seeds to create a healthy snacking experience, the company said.

Ancient Grains blends together quinoa, millet, chia, amaranth, brown rice, brown teff and sorghum to create a chip that is thin, but hearty, the company said. The chip is then seasoned with garlic, red pepper, cumin and topped with sea salt.

"Quinoa is on-trend these days, but truthfully, it has been celebrated for centuries for its nutritional benefits," said Steve Sklar, SVP and general manager of Inventure Foods. "When formulating the recipe for Ancient Grains, we sought out ingredients that, when combined, offered a rare combination of taste and nutritional value. We believe snack food fans will rave about this new snack experience."

Ancient Grains Sea Salt can be found in grocery stores starting this month with a retail price of $3.49 to $3.99 for a 5.5-oz. bag. The chips are certified gluten-free, Kosher certified and contain no genetically modified organisms (i.e., non-GMO).

AP: Minnesota bans use of anti-bacterial ingredient triclosan beginning in 2017

BY Michael Johnsen

MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton last week signed a bill that will prohibit the use of the antibacterial ingredient triclosan in consumer hygiene products beginning Jan. 1, 2017, according to an Associated Press report published Monday. The ingredient is widely used as a germ-killing ingredient in soaps, deodorants and toothpaste. 

It will make the state the first to ban the ingredient, according to the report. The Food and Drug Administration is currently reviewing the ingredient’s safety profile. Sponsor Sen. John Marty on Monday predicted that "the odds are good that most manufacturers will phase out triclosan by [Jan. 1, 2017]," the AP reported.

Citing FDA estimates, the AP reported that triclosan is used in an estimated 75% of antibacterial liquid soaps and body washes. While triclosan hasn’t been shown to be hazardous to humans, studies have raised concerns that it can disrupt hormones critical for reproduction and development, at least in lab animals, and contribute to the development of resistant bacteria.

"Some manufacturers have announced plans over the last couple years to at least partially phase out triclosan," the AP reported. "Procter & Gamble plans to finish dropping the chemical from its products this year. Johnson & Johnson plans to eliminate it from all its consumer products by 2015."
