The February 2011 Proto-col National Conference

Product Display At Protocol Business Conference

On Sunday 6 February 2011, the Proto-col health and beauty company held it’s twice a year national conference and everyone from the company and a good representation of the consultants attended. Also there were some fascinating guest speakers.

The even was held at the Stareton Hall on the Royal Showground near Stoneleigh, Warwickshire, in the UK.

Snacks and beverages were available as were a range of product displays, staffed by knowledgeable staff and distributors ready to answer any questions asked. Proto-col staff ran an efficient product purchase system with a discount available for items bought at the event.

The introduction to the day was by National Trainer Dave Butler, followed by a quick welcome from Managing Director James Greenwell.

The first speaker was celebrity makeup expert Tally Bookbinder who did a demonstration of the Proto-col all natural makeup using as a model Louise Helyer. Apart from helping at the event and being a very professional model, Louise is also representing Great Britain in the Modern Pentathlon: just one of the athletes supporting the conference.

Tally shared her opinions of the all natural makeup produced by Proto-col as well as hints and tips on application and the features of the products. Having recently worked on the television show ‘Snog, Marry, Avoid,’ Tally was particularly interesting on the abuse teenagers and young women generally give their skin and how the all natural makeup from Proto-col is a better choice.

James Greenwell Talking At Protocol Business Conference

Next James Greenwell introduced nutrition expert Professor Greg Whyte who produced his usual blend of entertainment and fascinating insights into the world of sports nutrition. Of course Professor Whyte’s information was related to the nutritional health supplements supplied by Proto-col and this and other knowledge from the day will appear in future posts on BeRavishing.com.

Particularly of interest was Professor Whyte’s explanation of the problems experienced by athletes: this was particularly well illustrated by a video of triathletes losing the use of their limbs as a result of poor nutritional preparation. Equally interesting was the understanding that sports nutrition can be relevant in everyday situations, including the struggle some people have simply to get up stairs.

James Greenwell returned to introduce three new products, Skin Plus, Calcium Complex and L-Carnitine, which will also appear on the pages of this website shortly. During his launch of these nutritional health supplements, James provided the audience with further fascinating insights into the working of the human body.

Following a short break, James returned to explain some administrative changes, including improvements to the sales websites (such as LookRavishing.com) and monthly meetings. He also announced Proto-col nutritional health supplements are now available in a Harley Street health centre.

At the event those attending had brought along children’s books in response to an appeal from James to provide them for the children of St Lucia following damage to the island’s schools in a recent hurricane. James explained how the idea had come about and the success of the programme so far (if you would like to find out more about the Proto-col St Lucia appeal, you can visit the company’s Facebook page).

James then introduced motivational speaker Andy T. Hansen. Andy gave an entertaining but hard-hitting talk explaining how the present financial problems within the economy represented a great opportunity for the company and how we could set goals to achieve what we want.

Dave Butler returned to the stage to introduce a group of exciting incentives for consultants during 2011: these range from vouchers to a theatre break and a holiday to Barcelona. Dave then went on to give tips to the audience as the best ways to expand their individual businesses.

Everyone left the event better informed as to the immediate future of the company and a useful goody-bag laden with CDs, DVDs, new product information, details of the new incentives and other useful items. Many of us also left with a bag of products purchased at the event and a new confidence in both the products and the Proto-col company.

The next such conference is on Sunday 25 September, although there are also monthly meetings held around the country. If you would like to attend any of these events, please use the contact form on this page. Further details can be found on the ‘Events’ tab on LookRavishing.com .

The Benefits Of Zinc Oxide To Natural Skincare

Girl with beautiful blonde hair

Zinc oxide has many applications in several fields, including in the production of rubber and concrete and as a food additive. However this adaptable substance, probably used in India around 500BC and by the Romans too, is particularly useful in medicine and as a constituent of mineral cosmetics.

This additive to natural beauty products is a key ingredient of the traditional skin treatment calamine lotion. It is anti-inflammatory and is used in sunscreens as a result of its natural skincare property of adhering to the skin and reducing the amount of potentially dangerous ultra violet rays absorbed.

This feature of non-absorption means zinc oxide is nonirritating and nonallergenic. There is some evidence it may well be an anti-oxidant too.

Some cheaper sunscreens use a nano zinc oxide but this is absorbed by the skin and is less effective and may even cause health problems (although studies are yet to establish this).

This natural skincare ingredient also features in cream designed to prevent nappy (or diaper) rash due to its abilities to combat skin irritations through its adherence to the skins surface. Zinc oxide also has antibacterial properties, which help its abilities in natural skincare.

Acne can also be controlled as a result of zinc oxides anti-inflammatory properties and it ability to also control excessive skin oil. Through its promotion of healthy skin, this substance also helps scars heal more quickly.

As a result of these advantages, this useful substance can also be found in rectal suppositories and in treatments (such as calamine lotion) for chapped, dry or itching skin and minor burns.

Zinc oxide is also used in nutritional supplements as a source of zinc, which is useful for DNA and immune system maintenance.

With all its benefits to healthy skin, it is clear that zinc oxide is a useful ingredient in natural beauty products, especially natural skin products.

The Strongest Foundation For Your Makeup Programme

Mineral makeup powder is fast becoming the makeup of choice for beauty professionals and the Proto-col range is one brand that is leading the revolution.

The Proto-col range of natural mineral cosmetics blends absolutely pure, top quality minerals with the latest skincare technology producing hypoallergenic mineral makeup powder that is good for your skin.

The range is free of fragrances, dyes, waxes, oils, parabens and talcs and is stuffed full with vitamins A, C and E. If you have problem skin you will be pleased to hear that the non-comedogenic nature of the range means it will not clog pores and it is fine to sleep with the makeup on.

The Proto-col foundation has bioactive minerals to heal problems in the skin and prevent breakouts. Restoring the skins vitality, the foundation also includes naturally coloured pigment iron oxides, mica to reflect the light naturally, the natural sunscreen (of SPF 20) titanium dioxide and the anti-inflammatory zinc oxide.

The goal has been to produce quality at an affordable price.

To match all shades of skin, this foundation comes in four colours: ranging from the lightest ‘ivory’ to ‘iroko.’

How To Apply Proto-col Foundation

Having poured a small amount of the foundation into the lid, use a Kabuki brush (there is an excellent one in the Proto-col range), and swirl it around the lid to work the mineral makeup powder into the bristles.

Apply the powder to the skin in a circular, buffing action until the desired coverage has been achieved. Make sure you blend it the area under the line of the jaw.

It is always better to apply the mineral powder makeup in thin layers, using smaller amounts of powder than apply too much in one go.

Interestingly, as with many of the Proto-col natural mineral cosmetics, the nature of the product means the colours can be mixed to achieve the perfect shade for your complexion.

Proto-cols foundation mineral makeup powder is included in the Cosmetics Starter Pack for your skin colour. Find out more at LookRavishing.com.

Proto-col Lip Gloss Range

The Proto-col range of lip glosses come in five different colours: Coconut Ice, Copper Kiss, Pretty In Pink, Strawberry Crush and Crystal Clear.

All the range have an amazing lightweight effect on your lips thanks to a gel formulation. Each one is non-sticky and gives a long-lasting shine that will give you a new glamour. The mineral oil found in each one will also hydrate your lips nicely.

For a bit of fun – and also practicality – each shade includes a LED light and a mirror in the top as well as an application brush to give a better finish, of course. This means you can apply the gloss wherever and whenever you need it.

Crystal Clear can be used to give a wonderful shine to your lips or to give extra gloss to one of the other shades. If you are more imaginative you can even mix the Crystal Clear with one of the Proto-col mineral makeup powders to create your own lip colour.

How do you apply the Proto-col Lip Glosses?

Use the brush to apply the gloss to the centre of your lower lip then press your lips together and this will evenly distribute the gloss. On their own they will give a soft sheen but a gorgeous high gloss can be achieved by building up layers.

For a limited time, all five lip glosses in the range can be bought together for the price of four, packed in a silver clutch bag.

Please visit LookRavishing.com for more details on this offer and all the other natural mineral cosmetics in the wonderful Proto-col range.
