  • Easy shopping for popular Elsom Research cosmeceuticals

    Posted on September 1st, 2016 ElsomResearch No comments

    We have a great new option to offer our retail shoppers: a convenient and quick way to shop for a short list of our most popular formulations for skincare and scalpcare.

    We are happy to invite you to visit our new fast-lane shop at

    Our small online shop is hosted by Square, the same people whose easy credit card processing you may have used at food trucks, coffee shops, and craft fairs, where, rather than using a large and complex cash register, a shopkeeper processes your credit card payment through a small mobile device attached to their phone or notebook computer. In our new skincare shop, Square will securely process your payment online just as they would if we met in person. The whole thing should be fast, smooth, and easy.

    On our skincare product information pages, look for this symbol:

    Available in our Quick Shop!

    When you see it, you can expect to find a fresh batch of this cosmeceutical ready for you to purchase in our new skincare shop.

    We hope our new little Square shop will be easy for shoppers to use and easy for us to maintain. Depending on how our early experiences go, we may add a few more products or other options; if you visit the new shop and let us know what you think about, that will help us make those plans.

    We never keep idle inventory in stock: anything we sell to you is freshly made and recently packaged. Depending on what’s been going on with our large batch orders and other special projects, many of the products you can see now at our larger New Equilibrium Skincare shop and our other websites may not be readily available; if we’d have to make a new batch to sell a product, we won’t list that product in the quick Square shop. We may be just about ready to make that batch, though, so don’t give up if you don’t see your favorite in our our Square shop today; contact us, tell us what you wish we had in stock, and we’ll see what we can do.

    A note about international shopping: Today, Square supports credit card processing in the United States and a few other countries. They have said that they plan to expand the list of countries where they work, but credit card processing is not the only complication: international shipping prices have increased substantially in the past year. For now, the best bet for our international shoppers is to contact us and tell us what you are looking for; if what you want to buy is something we want to sell, we can work out a mutually-agreeable plan and, if appropriate, send you an invoice for online payment.

    Happy shopping!

  • Elsom Research Skincare Shops Are Open!

    Posted on November 3rd, 2011 ElsomResearch No comments

    We have completed our processing shutdown and our retail cosmeceuticals and custom micro-batch formulation shops are online again and back to business as usual. Thank you for your patience; we look forward to shipping your orders!

  • We’ll See You in November

    Posted on September 21st, 2011 ElsomResearch No comments

    Elsom Research is not taking orders of any kind during our October 2011 break. We will be back in operation November 5, 2011. We look forward to sending you more great skincare then!

  • This is a Great Time to Re-Order!

    Posted on September 11th, 2011 ElsomResearch No comments

    Elsom Research is planning a much-needed company-wide hiatus for the entire month of October 2011. In the past, as announced in this blog, our Web sites have had some outages but we were always busy here, taking retail orders by other means, formulating and manufacturing custom batches, and generally keeping our equipment, minds, and schedule fully occupied. However, some things just can’t be accomplished while maintaining business as usual; as we prepare to begin 2012 as our 15th year in business, we’ve decided to shut down completely for a few weeks.

    We will accept orders through September 20, 2011; before we begin our October break, we will ship all orders received by that deadline. After that, we will be unavailable until November 5, 2011, when we we will re-activate New Equilibrium Skincare (for retail sales) and The Formulator (for custom micro-batch formulation) and resume our consulting, formulation, and manufacturing processes for custom and private-label batches.

    If you are just about to run out of your favorite skincare or scalpcare cosmeceuticals, right now is the perfect time to order a little more. By the time that order starts to run low in November, we’ll be back and ready to ship your next order with our usual promptness, attention to detail, and innovative touches.

    When we come back from this break, we’ll have renewed energy and great ideas, ready to turn into amazing cosmeceuticals for you. Watch this blog for those announcements!

  • The-Formulator Returns!

    Posted on March 23rd, 2011 ElsomResearch No comments

    After an extended vacation, is back at work and ready to take your orders for custom micro-batch formulations.

    As always, you can use The-Formulator to select from several Elsom Research formulation technologies and choose your favorites from a wide variety of ingredients, including base oils, essential oils, precious oils, botanicals, vitamins, actives, and encapsulates. You control the price of your skincare, as you can see the cost of each available ingredient and decide whether you wish to include it. Using the technology and ingredients of your choice, plus a few tricks of our own, we will create a 2 ounce (55 gram) bottle of your special skincare formulation and ship it to you.

    With this revision, you can do some things with The-Formulator that were never possible before. For example, if you make your choices and decide you would like to buy 10 bottles of your special formulation, you are now able to do that. Also, you can now buy multiple formulations in a single purchase, so if you are interested in trying one custom micro-batch as a nano-emulsion and another as a simple emollient, you can buy them both at the same time. You may find other interesting innovations, too; keep visiting The-Formulator to see our continuous improvements.

    We’ve also changed the way payments are processed for The-Formulator only. When you place your order, you will see the full cost of your formulation(s), including any applicable tax and shipping charges. If that price is acceptable to you, complete the checkout process; you won’t be asked for your credit card information at that time. Instead, after we receive your order we will respond by sending you a Google Checkout invoice, which you can pay online via credit card. If you prefer to pay by mailing us a check or money order, you can do that, too, as always.

    Now that is online again, we invite you to visit the site frequently as we continue to expand the list of available ingredients.

  • Temporary Outage for Retail Skincare and Custom Microbatch Formulation Sites

    Posted on December 24th, 2010 ElsomResearch No comments

    Both Elsom Research shopping sites, and, are currently unavailable. We are working to restore normal operation as soon as possible. Meanwhile, if you know what you would like to order, please contact us and we will be happy to send you a Google Checkout invoice by email.

    As usual, we are ready to ship your orders for stock retail products or to begin planning your custom formulation immediately; only our shopping sites are taking a break, and we’ll make sure that break is as short as possible.

    Thank you for your patience.

  • New Developments in Shampoos and Cleansers

    Posted on January 29th, 2010 ElsomResearch No comments

    We have four announcements that should interest everyone who likes to have the front of their head (also called their face) and the top of the head (also called their scalp) look and feel clean, with great formulations for a great price:

    Double the Size, Same Price

    We are happy to announce that NanoSoft™, our emollient facial cleanser, is now sold in 110gr (4oz) packaging at the same price for which we previously offered it in 55gr (2oz) packaging. We are able to double the quantity for the same price due to our new processing technology, which increases the efficiency and flexibility available to us in making shampoos, cleansers, soaps, and detergents. The new doubled size applies to all future sales of NanoSoft™, whether as a standalone product or as part of our Anti-Wrinkle or Anti-Aging facial care regimen kits. This is the new normal size and price for NanoSoft™, not a short-term offer!

    We are always working to find better, smarter ways to create great skin and scalp formulations. When we find a way to save money, we enjoy passing that along to you.

    New Shampoo:
    Micellarin Fight™ Advanced Shampoo for Extreme Scalp Cleaning

    Micellarin Fight™ Advanced Shampoo offers good foaming and excellent detergency, leaving scalp clean and hair silky soft.
    Botanical ingredients in Micellarin Fight™ are

    • green tea [Camellia sinensis]
      source of polyphenols said to have anti-aging protective effects against free radicals
    • ku shen [Sophora flavescens]
      traditionally used to control inflammation
    • ginseng [Panax ginseng]
      traditionally used to balance skin oil production and improve skin texture
    • horsetail [Equisetum arvense]
      rich source of organic silica
    • essential oil of rosemary [Rosmarinus officinalis]
      traditional remedy for dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis

    The shampoo also features a special combination of very mild surfactants.

    We added no color and no perfume to Micellarin Fight™ shampoo. Its dark color is a direct result of the huge amounts of botanical extracts we add to the shampoo. We don’t use any “botanical color imitators” such as caramel or other darkening agents; we just use pure, honest botanical extracts. The botanicals in Micellarin Fight™  are a unique combination of botanical extracts which have profound roles in the maintenance of healthy-looking and healthy-feeling hair and scalp.

    Micellarin Fight Advanced Shampoo

    New Facial Cleanser:
    Micellarin Dream™ Rich Facial Hybrid Cleanser

    Micellarin Dream™ Facial Cleanser is a revolutionary concept in skincare and maintenance. This gentle and effective, low-foaming cleanser is rich in saponified soy phospholipids and mild surfactants as companion “satellites” around the saponified soy phospholipids, creating the extra mildness, effective cleansing, and fine texture of the cleanser. The revolutionary idea of saponifying phospholipids rather than saponifying oils (which is the traditional method of making soap), then further hybridizing them with extra mild surfactants, yielded a hybrid facial cleanser with great cleansing power which is also light and creamy in texture, low in foaming, and most delicate and gentle for facial cleansing.

    After using this cleanser, it is possible to leave the skin without additional moisturizing agents for a while.

  • Hue-2, companion to Micellarin Hue, now sold separately and in Care Kit for Grey Hair

    Posted on January 13th, 2010 ElsomResearch No comments

    When we introduced Micellarin Hue™ shampoo in June 2009, we expanded our line of scalp and hair care formulations to directly address an important process: hair’s changes in color and texture. In response to stress, illness, aging, or other factors, some people lose their hair; for other people, hair is not lost but becomes brittle and loses its color. Of course, many people experience both kinds of changes, losing some hair and having the remaining hair lose its color, turning grey or white. Our Micellarin™ shampoos provide excellent scalp cleaning and enhanced hair fullness, no matter how your hair may be changing; with added botanical extracts of bhringraj [Eclipta alba], Micellarin Hue™ also provides a hue-enhancing effect for colorless grey hair.

    To strengthen and enhance the effect of Micellarin Hue™ shampoo on white, grey, and greying hair, we are now offering a leave-in lotion, Hue-2™, as a companion product. Like Micellarin Hue™ shampoo, Hue-2™ lotion is rich in bhringraj and other beneficial ingredients; however, while a shampoo is meant to be fully rinsed after brief contact with scalp and hair, Hue-2™ lotion can be applied after shampooing and then left in place for as long as you wish.

    The table below lists the key ingredients of both Micellarin Hue™ shampoo and its companion lotion, Hue-2™.

    • reduce hair greyness
    • increase hair thickness
    • increase hair brightness
    • darken hair color
    • intensify hair hue within the rainge of your natural hair color

    To encourage use of these two formulations as a synergistic pair, we are offering special savings when Micellarin Hue™ and Hue-2™ are purchased together: our Grey Hair Care Kit, containing both the shampoo and the leave-in lotion, saves $7 compared to purchasing those two items separately.

  • NanoReversitol: Beyond Resveratrol!

    Posted on October 21st, 2009 ElsomResearch No comments

    NanoReversitol™, our Skincare of the Month for September 2009, completing our one-year commitment to the SkincareOf TheMonth program, is an anti-aging cream suitable for all kinds of skin and all areas of skin. It can be massaged into facial skin as well as into scalp. The product’s name is a play on the name of one of its key ingredients, resveratrol, which has acquired a strong reputation for anti-aging effects. Combined with our formulation technologies and additional ingredients supporting skin health, NanoReversitol™ is an important new development in anti-aging skincare.

    Reversing the aging process is one of the oldest quests of humanity since the dawn of of civilization. Progress is being made, but slowly, and with relapses along the road. While only a few centuries ago the average life expectancy of people was about 40 years, it has now doubled because of better understanding of the mechanisms of life, better nutrition, better awareness of hygiene, a good arsenal for fighting microbe-mediated diseases, and an ever-expanding solidity of scientifically-backed treatments for many diseases. However, the human life span (as opposed to life expectancy) has not changed. There were always individuals who lived longer than a hundred years and no one was ever documented to live longer than 130 years. Increased life span is not the same as increased life expectancy. While life expectancy aims at increasing the chances for people to live up to their given potential, increasing life span is still an elusive challenge. This is the challenge of pushing the theoretical limitation of life expectancy to a new range. If people can now live up to about a hundred years if they do everything right and are not visited by unexpected disasters, it may be possible in the near future to aim at 200 years of life under optimal conditions.

    It is too early to judge what changes are affecting life expectancy and what can actually affect life span. However, as the largest organ in the body, the skin the the most likely target to affect the entire body in medicinal regimens. Our products are not medicinal but they are based on sound science and in some aspects, including their diversity and ingenuity, are superior to medicinal products.  NanoReversitol™ is now our Skincare Of The Month but it may very well prove to be the skincare of the decade (to keep it modest) and is definitely the most innovative and broad range anti-aging product of its time.

    We have priced this product significantly below its value to allow more people access to its benefits. We encourage you to take this opportunity and try this new and special product: NanoReversitol™ and start all over again.

    The product contains many other unusually luxurious and extremely expensive ingredients, as well as some other important ingredients, which you can see in the list below. NanoReversitol™ is formulated as a light oil-in-water type nano-emulsion. Due to requests by some customers to formulate a product which lasts longer on the skin but does not  compromise our unique edge of fast and deep penetration of active ingredients, this cream will deliver the active ingredients deep into the skin while maintaining a protective fraction on the skin for people who don’t only wish their skin to be moisturized but want to feel the moisturizer at work.

    Featured Ingredients:

    • rice bran oil [Oryza sativa]
    • sodium PCA
    • isosorbide (dimethyl)
    • panthenol [pro-Vitamin B5]
    • cetostearol
    • glyceryl stearate
    • glycerol
    • resveratrol [Polygonum cuspidatum]
    • ascorbyl palmitate [oil-soluble Vitamin C]
    • L-lysine [amino acid, protein building block]
    • isonicotinamide
    • essential oil of cedar [Cedrus atlantica]
    • adenosine
    • essential oil of petitgrain [Citrus aurantium]
    • kinetin [plant growth factor]
    • ethyl pyruvate
    • essential oil of rosemary [Rosmarinus officinalis]
    • zinc sulfate
    • essential oil of clove [Eugenia caryophyllus]
    • essential oil of cinnamon [Cinnamomum cassia]
    • cholecalciferol [Vitamin D3]

    NanoReversitol™ is a glossy, white cream with a fresh aroma that is the natural combination of the essentials oils with which it was formulated.

    NanoReversitol™ is available in two sizes: 55 gr (2.0 oz) and 20 gr (0.7 oz).

    We have big ideas for the future of our Skincare of the Month project now that it has completed its first year. Keep watching the blog for announcements!
