SKINCARE FOR EVERY LIFE “STYLE” & EVERY LIFE “STAGE”

Young, fierce & fabulous!

You like what you see in the mirror so it’s time to get serious about skincare. Yes, you look good today but that doesn’t mean your gorgeous skin will last forever. In your 20’s, hormones change, and oil production slows. Your skin needs protection and nurturing. Age and genetics are a factor, but your habits play a role too. Do you stay up late? Drink alcohol? Smoke? Eat junk food? Do you skip sunscreen or sleep with makeup on? If you do any of these things now’s the time for prevention. Whim is exactly what you need to protect the look you love. Your future self will appreciate it.

Super Moms!

They happily make sacrifices for the family, including all “me time”. Always on the go, school, soccer games, and fueling up on caffeine. Many factors can affect how fast skin ages. In the 30’s is when you notice those first signs of aging, usually around the eyes. Some women develop melasma, resulting in dark patches. And now is when skin becomes dull and fullness is lost. Antioxidant protection and hydration is critical. And, if you’re outdoors for even a short time, sunscreen is a must. Enjoy some “me time” and spoil yourself with Whim skincare. The other moms will wonder what you’ve been up to.

You’re a Boss & there’s not time for much else!

Late hours, deadlines, and endless Zoom calls take a toll. Many times, a glass of wine (or 2) replaces a healthy meal. And none of this is good for your skin. In your 40’s, oil production continues to slow, skin gets dry & rough, and uneven skin tone, and age spots appear. Pre-menopause and an increased need to exfoliate make you wonder where your vibrant skin went. Peptides, hyaluronic acid, and alpha hydroxy acids are key in re-energizing your skin. Whim’s skincare with multi-actives for multi-benefits is the only choice for you!

GLAM-MA is the new Grandma!

Young at heart and looking good. In your 50’s+ you must be diligent, yet gentle, with your skin care. Collagen & elastin production decline, skin sags, and dark spots are prominent. Treat your neck & decolletage as an extension of your face and apply skincare products here too. Serum, Eye Cream, and Moisturizer are essential in diminishing crow’s feet and wrinkles. And, daily exercise gives you a refreshed, youthful appearance. With Whim’s multi-active ingredients you can age beautifully. Your beauty will shine through. No matter what your age!

MULTI-ACTIVES FOR MULTI-BENEFITS

Antioxidants protect the body from free radicals that compromise collagen and elastin, leaving skin looking older. Antioxidants provide many benefits including, diminishing the look of fine lines & wrinkles and tightening & toning the skin.

Deep ocean marine extracts, like algae and kelp, offer extraordinary antioxidant power. Their benefits are incredible and include providing intense hydration and skin-friendly minerals to enhance a youthful appearance.

With AHA’s, hyaluronic acids, and non-inflammatory retinoids, your skin is in great hands. These gentle acids play a role in regulating and increasing cellular turnover and the formation of healthy-looking skin. They help firm, plump, diminish the look of fine lines & wrinkles, and soften & smooth the skin.

Your skin needs a healthy environment to properly function. By infusing the skin with an abundance of skin-friendly vitamins & minerals, you provide cells with the nutrition needed to protect & correct the signs of damage and pre-mature aging.

These uniquely specialized botanicals help fend off free radicals and hyperpigmentation while comforting and smoothing the skin. Fruits, flowers, and herbs provide moisture as well as crucial, environmental protection.

Natural pigment correctors help regulate and restore natural melanin production for an even, radiant skin tone. Hormones, sun damage, and inflammation contribute to skin aging. These antagonists increase melanin levels, resulting in uneven skin tone and dark patches.

Skin loses its ability to retain moisture as we age, resulting in skin that’s dry, rough, and flaky. By drenching the skin with hydration and skin barrier protectors, we can restore and seal in hydration for plumper, moisture-rich skin.

The chains of amino acid proteins send signals to collagen and elastin fibers, telling them how to function, reproduce, and repair themselves. This formation of new collagen & elastin networks helps restore skin’s volume & elasticity.

SKINCARE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Whim’s passion is to explore Multi-Actives for Multi-Benefits. Due to both chronological & environmental aging, our skin ageS faster than any other organ of the body. As time passes, the way our body functions tends to slow down. This includes how our skin performs, how it regenerates, and how it repairs itself. When this happens, we can experience many different effects including loss of collagen, elasticity, uneven tone and texture, fine lines & wrinkles, sun damage, and even loose skin. The closest thing we have to a fountain of youth is a good skincare regimen, a nutritious diet, and a healthy lifestyle. To help reverse this damage and improve our appearance it’s important to use skincare products like WHIM that utilize higher concentrations of quality active ingredients, advanced skincare technologies and, mother nature’s finest botanical ingredients that really perform. This is what helps to stimulate collagen production, replace lost moisture, speed up cellular turnover and so much more. It’s the only skincare line you’ll ever need!

Whim skincare is formulated, developed, and manufactured in the good old USA.

Our products are not organic or all-natural, but we have selected an abundance of skin-friendly, natural ingredients that provide amazing benefits as part of our formulations. These include powerful plant botanicals – fruits, flowers, and herbs. There are incredible marine extracts, including algae & kelp and, of course, the latest in scientific innovation. We do not include parabens, animal by-products, gluten, synthetic colors or dyes, sodium lauryl sulfates (SLS), petrochemicals, phthalates, formaldehyde, mineral oil, or oxybenzone. (See our ingredient page for more info.)

We wish we could formulate “all-natural” but we value product efficacy and results. To formulate products that can deliver anti-aging benefits we need to go a few steps further with our formulations. And because of this, we include superior active ingredients at higher concentrations. Ingredients like peptides, hyaluronic acid, amino acids, AHA’s and more. Unfortunately, based on age and lifestyle choices, for most of us, all-natural products simply aren’t enough.

You can find the product ingredients on the individual product pages by clicking on the “Ingredients we Love” tab or in the Skincare ingredient section. They can also be found on the product packaging.

No, No, a thousand times No! Our products are cruelty-free as well as vegan friendly. They don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products and we would never test on fur babies.

No, our products do not contain parabens.

A preservation system is essential in any skincare formula. It helps to prevent the dangerous growth and spread of harmful bacteria. At Whim we only formulate using paraben-free preservative systems. And we’re always researching new ingredients and stabilizing alternatives to create only those formulas that are safe, powerful, potent, and results-driven. And, of course, non-irritating and non-toxic as well.

Each product has a shelf life of up to 18 months when unopened, and up to 6 months after the product has been opened. The Whim products are made with many natural ingredients, so they may react to extreme heat or cold. It’s best to store your products at room temperature and out of direct sunlight to maximize product integrity and efficacy.

Yes, there is. See our Skincare Guide for details about applying your skincare products in the correct order. It definitely makes a difference!

Some of the Whim products may contain ingredients that aren’t suitable for sensitive skin. If you generally experience skin sensitivity, we suggest you do a patch test first. Try the products on a small section of the skin on the inside of your wrist. Keep an eye open for any skin reactions for 24 hours before applying to your face. And, if you have a known allergy to specific ingredients, please check the individual ingredient panels. Generally, we have very few issues with sensitive skin, but everyone’s skin is different. It’s always best to err on the side of caution.

This is what makes the Whim products so incredible! Results vary from person to person but, you will have a combination of amazing results after just one use that get better and better over time. Depending on the condition of your skin, you should notice softer, smoother, brighter skin in just a few days. However, many report seeing and feeling results after their very first use. The skin’s normal regenerative cycle takes about a month to 6 weeks so many people report their most significant anti-aging results during this time period.

We challenge you to take the ½ face challenge when you first try your Whim products. Just cleanse and apply your products to half of your face only. We are confident you will notice a significant difference right away!

The skin around the eyes is different than the skin elsewhere on the body. This area lacks both sweat and oil glands making it highly susceptible to dehydration and usually the first place we notice the signs of aging. Because of this, this delicate skin must be treated differently. In many cases, your other skincare products are just too heavy for this unique area resulting in negative results like puffiness, irritated skin and sometimes little white bumps called milia. Eye treatment products are light-weight, moisturizing, and absorb easily. Apply your eye treatment by gently patting in and around the eye area using your ring finger. Never rub or tug this delicate skin as it may cause irreparable damage over time.

No it does not. This was a deliberate choice during formulation as we believe that the healthiest sunscreens for the skin are physical, not chemical. Physical sunblocks, like Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, physically block the sun’s damaging rays by sitting on top of the skin. Chemical sunscreens, like Oxybenzone, are known to penetrate the skin.  Many health experts believe this is an unhealthy practice with long term adverse effects brought on by these chemicals entering the bloodstream. By combining sunscreens into your moisturizer you can lose the true benefits expected from both products. Because we take safety and efficacy very seriously, our Moisture Shield SPF 30 has been formulated with only physical sunblocks that will never enter the bloodstream.. It also contains moisturizing botanicals, protective antioxidants, peptides, and more. The Whim Moisture Shield SPF 30 should be the last step in your skincare regimen, or you can apply as needed.

The Whim™ products are put through a series of tests to ensure purity and potency. We strictly abide by FDA-mandated Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). And, we adhere to all quality assurance guidelines. The products are tested to ensure purity, potency, and safety. Before any product is approved for sale; toxicity, temperature, stability, compatibility, and microbiological tests are diligently performed.

Yes! With the exception of the Multi-Action Exfoliating Scrub, all of the Whim products are developed to be used both AM and PM for optimal results. Our multi-active ingredients provide both protection and correction benefits to the skin and are designed to gently nurture the skin during the daytime and while you sleep.
