Triclosan is an antimicrobial agent found in a variety of antibacterial soaps and detergents, as well as in many deodorants, toothpastes, cosmetics, fabrics and plastics. Triclosan was initially developed as a surgical scrub for medical professionals, but in more recent years, it has been added to a host of consumer products in order to kill bacteria and fungus and prevent odors.
Without being aware of the effects of Triclosan, people are being exposed to these dangerous antimicrobial agents that have been linked to hormone disruption and the emergence of bacteria resistant to antibodies and antibacterial products. Triclosan has been identified in the urine of 75% of the people tested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It also impacts the environment, ending up in lakes, rivers and other water sources where it is toxic to aquatic life.
Triclosan consistently proves to be dangerous and unnecessary. In 2005, the FDA found no evidence that anti-bacterial washes containing Triclosan were superior to plain soap and water for protecting from bacteria and in 2013, the FDA announced a draft rulemaking process that would require manufacturers to demonstrate its’ safety and efficacy for use in soaps and body washes. This process will not be finalized until 2015 and does not include hospital-based use of Triclosan.
Triclosan should always be clearly labeled on ingredient lists so it’s relatively easy to avoid. Moral of the story: Stick with plain soap and water… It’s better to be safe than sorry!

SymWhite 377 (Phenylethyl Resorcinol) was developed to serve as a lightening and brightening ingredient and a protective antioxidant. Partially derived from natural lightening compounds found in scotch pine bark, SymWhite 377 is known to be effective without being harsh and non-irritating with extremely low cytotoxicity. Studies have shown SymWhite 377 provides visible brightening effects in 28 days.
How it works: Blocks the enzymatic reaction (Tyrosinase) that triggers melanin (protective dark pigment) when triggered from skin trauma or UV exposure.Tyrosinase delivers tan skin and a natural defense, but it can deposit unevenly causing scarring and hyper-pigmentation.
SymWhite 377 can improve the appearance of dull complexions, promote clarity and brightness and provide a beautiful, uniform skin tone. It delivers bright radiant skin and anti-oxidant protection at the same time.
At SIRCUIT®, we feature this powerfully unique ingredient in our fading serum, Brilliance™. Brilliance™ is formulated with SymWhite 377 and L-Lactic Acid that helps inhibit hyper-pigmentation, lighten discolorations while conditioning and protecting the skin. This enticing serum is also fortified with Neem Leaf extract that has specific abilities to help assist in skin clarity and tone. Enriched with Lemon Peel and Sweet Orange for stimulating refreshment of dull, tired skin to reveal a more illuminating and radiant complexion, fade to flawless with this exquisite serum that will definitely brighten your day.

Just got word that Jersey blogger from Noveau Yuppie Beauty visited our friends over at Thompson Alchemists in New York City where the owners, Jolie and Gary, suggested she go home with their favorite mask, SIRCUIT’s Mocha Loca™+! WIth skin that had recently gotten a little beat up from weather and stress, she was quickly advised by these experts to use this 4% lactic acid peel for a beautiful boost to help her complexion look radiant.
Here’s a peek at her experience. She says, “It has a whipped, airy texture with little bits of coffee bean and smells like chocolate. If I didn’t know any better, I would have mistaken it for chocolate mousse. This thing is intense… and it makes me want a bowl of ice cream. It lived up to its claims of imparting radiance. As I washed it off, the little coffee grinds added additional exfoliation, which was nice. My skin looked glowy for my first day of work.”
Well, Nouveau Yuppie, we couldn’t be happier knowing you walked in to your first day at your new job with dewy, radiant skin and a glowing complexion… Hope your day was just as GORGEOUS as your face!!

Would you voluntarily rinse microscopic synthetic plastic balls down the drain? If you use cosmetics that contain microbeads, that’s what’s happening every time you lather up. A single container of face wash can contain hundreds of thousands of the spheres—which, like every other object made from plastic, aren’t biodegradable.
Imagine a gazillion tiny plastic balls floating through the world’s streams, rivers, lakes, and oceans, adding to the already insane amount of plastic in the water. Scared? You should be. In the future it might be impossible to find water without them. No wonder folks in the Land of Lincoln have had enough of the balls. Illinois, which is adjacent to one of the largest freshwater bodies of water in the world, Lake Michigan, has become the first state in the nation to issue a ban on the manufacture and sale of personal care products containing microbeads.
S.B. 2727, which was sponsored by state Sen. Heather Steans and state Rep. Jaime Andrade Jr., mandates the removal of synthetic microbeads from all face and body wash, toothpaste, and other personal care products.
Over the past decade, face washes and other skin care products have become laden with the beads. Manufacturers tout the balls’ ability to slough away dead skin and, in a direct appeal to our vanity, reveal a youthful-looking appearance. (An exfoliating paste made of baking soda doesn’t make cosmetics companies much money, you see.) The balls are too small to be filtered by waste treatment plants, so they’re poisoning our water and being ingested by marine life. That means they have to go.
“Banning microbeads will help ensure clean waters across Illinois and set an example for our nation to follow,” Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn said in a statement. “Lake Michigan and the many rivers and lakes across our state are among our most important natural resources. We must do everything necessary to safeguard them.”
Pressure is mounting on personal care manufacturers to reduce the negative impact of their products on the lakes and the surrounding environment. In May Minnesota banned the antibacterial chemical triclosan, which has been shown to create a hormonal imbalance in animals that ingest it through drinking water.
New York may soon follow Illinois’ lead in banning microbeads. But the Empire State may see the removal of the balls first. That’s because the Midwestern state is giving companies plenty of time to get rid of the plastic spheres. Manufacturers have until the end of 2018 to stop making products with microbeads and until the end of 2019 to stop selling them in the Illinois. That’s a long time—and potentially millions more of the beads poisoning the Great Lakes.
Cosmetics giants Unilever, Procter & Gamble, and Johnson & Johnson have all agreed to start phasing out microbeads. For the sake of the environment, let’s hope they speed up their time line.
For all you SIRCUIT loyalists out there… Have no fear!! We are CLEAN and GREEN ‘til the end! SIR ACTIV™+ does not contain microbeads! Flaky, dullness, be gone… Sir Activ™+ leaves skin polished and gorgeous while keeping the environment looking the same exact way!
Sir Activ™+ invigorating scrub adds vitality and radiance to dull and lifeless skin. Small spherical Jojoba beads gently exfoliate while Zeolites (silicates from volcanoes) help to remove deep impurities leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft. The intoxicating essence of Cranberry and Apple botanicals will leave your senses wanting more. City dwellers exposed to harmful pollution (from cigarette smoke to urban smog) should make this natural deep cleansing scrub a regular part of their skin care regimen.
• Gently exfoliates and sweeps away dead skin cells.
• Restores a healthy looking complexion and restores radiance.
• Helps to decongest pores and remove impurities.
• Softens and smoothes skin.

We’re feeling the love and couldn’t let another week go by without acknowledging it! Recently, SIRCUIT Loyalist from Atlanta, GA raves about Fixzit™+ in saying, “I love this stuff! When I feel a breakout coming on, I use it several times a day. The breakout is less likely to come out, and if it does, it heals more quickly. But the best thing is that as I’ve aged, these dark marks tend to remain for a very long time. But not with Fixzit!”
WOW! We couldn’t agree more and are so happy to hear it…Thank you! Precisely the results we gear towards, exactly what we’re here for!

Such a phenomenal ingredient… everyone should know what it is and how it works! CHRONOCYCLIN is a powerful, active ingredient that optimizes skin defense and cell regeneration. An anti-aging chrono-peptide that mimics sun exposure activation of the circadian genes which resynchronizes its’ rhythms and optimizes Vitamin D activity. With immediate results, CHRONOCYCLIN provides endless skin awakening benefits, the perfect antidote for stressed, tired, or jet lagged skin.
Living organisms are regulated by an internal clock of 24 hours – the biorhythm – that controls circadian gene expression periodically. Think of this rhythm as an internal alarm clock that signals cells to either wake up and defend or rest and regenerate. Sun exposure is one of the activators that stimulate the circadian genes. CHRONOCYCLIN elicits circadian gene stimulation without UV exposure.
Lots of BIG words with Lots of BIG results…
Enjoy the benefits of CHRONOCYCLIN and more in SIRCUIT®’s, ‘liquid moisture’ Molecular Mist™+, hydrating moisture care. This evaporation resistant, all natural formulation will plump and hydrate your skin while protecting it against dryness, dehydration and damage from environmental factors.

Did you know that one of the fastest growing areas in Plastic Surgery and Dermatology is the hands? That’s right, our hands! We take the time and effort to fight the signs of aging from the neck up. We work out and diet trying to keep our bodies healthy and in shape. But very seldom do we take into consideration the fact the hands are one of the first areas that will show the signs of aging. Not to mention they are constantly being abused!
“Hands not only are susceptible to the first signs of aging, but very often age even faster than the face,” says Ellen Marmur, MD, chief of dermatological and cosmetic surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. That’s because the skin on the back of the hand is much thinner than that on your face.
If you’re like many women (and men), your at-home hand care is limited to using dishwashing detergent with moisturizer and maybe a drugstore hand cream now and then. But experts say with just a bit more effort, you can improve the appearance of your hands right now — and 20 years from now.
So before you need to see the Dr. to have your hands botoxed, filled or a laser treated, see what SIRCUIT® Cosmeceuticals has to offer…
From our hands to yours… you won’t be sorry!
Give them the treat they need with SIRCUIT’s Handsome™+. Skin pampering Handsome™+ lavender moisture hand and body crème is uniquely designed with a luxurious blend of precious ingredients to restore moisture, soften, and strengthen the skin. The intoxicating essence of natural lavender with its extraordinary calming benefits, pampers your senses leaving you feeling rested and relaxed.
