Question: Many cosmetic manufacturers
use special ingredients which require knowledge and, therefore, education
along with their lines. By comparison, Golden Sunshine’s skin care
line seems simple and basic. Why is that?
Answer: Golden Sunshine
has been dealing with the medical community since its inception and has
obtained NDC (National Drug Code) numbers for its pain management products
from the FDA. All of Golden Sunshine’s product offerings, including
our skin care line, are natural and proven effective. We believe that
a healthy approach to skin care includes using a basic regimen of natural
products that keep the skin healthy and radiant. Golden Sunshine’s
Skin Care Essentials include our Collagen Peptide Facial Mask, Collagen
Peptide Extract, Aloe/Reishi Skin Dew, and Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing
Question: Some of your product from Taiwan contain methyl paraben. Is this harmful?
Answer: In the 1990's there were studies published showing accumulation of parabens in breast cancer tissues. However, no conclusive evidence indicating that parabens cause cancer has been presented. Golden Sunshine uses only very minute amounts to avoid microbial contamination of its botanical products produced in Taiwan. The risk of microbial contamination is far greater than any risk from the methyl paraben and the concentration is far less than you would find in a tube of lipstick.
Methyl paraben is a water-soluble anti-microbial and anti-irritant agent. It is derived from the benzoic acid found in benzoin tree gum and is one of the most commonly used preservatives in cosmetics over the past 50 years. Methyl paraben is also used in a variety of health and beauty products as an ingredient to preserve and rejuvenate the skin.

Hyaluronic Acid Questions
Question: What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Answer: Hyaluronic Acid is the most plentiful carbohydrate in the body
and is used to lubricate and moisturize its tissues. It is the body’s
natural moisturizer and has become a popular ingredient in many skin care
products. Golden Sunshine’s Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Serum is
a natural, concentrated form that is the ideal moisturizer for your skin.
