FAQs

WHO NEEDS WIND THERAPY?

Active people who love the outdoors and/or are exposed to drying environments. Women and men alike will enjoy the protection and lasting benefits of using the Wind Therapy line. Wind Therapy was formulated to face the challenges of skin and hair care while riding motorcycles.  Sailors, golfers, skiiers, climbers, bicyclists, in-flight personnel, and more experience similar harsh, and/or drying conditions and will appreciate Wind Therapy benefits.

HOW ARE WIND THERAPY PRODUCTS DIFFERENT?

They are cationic. That means that they each have plant-based conditioning ingredients that exhibit a positive charge. (The primary cationic ingredient is derived from the Colza plant.) The positive charge in Wind Therapy products electrostatically bonds the products, and their awesome nutrients, emollients, antioxidants, and moisture to the naturally negative charge of our hair and skin.

Shielding Skin Conditioner: Wind Therapy’s lotion bonds with the top layer of dead cells of the skin, forming a protective layer. This layer helps to retain the skin’s natural moisture and lubricants which are responsible for the skin’s elasticity and integrity. And when applied to wet skin, the additional, valuable moisture is held to the skin’s surface. Wind Therapy includes all-star nutrients like niacinamide and panthenol (Vitamins B5 and B3) that many rigorous studies have found help promote long-term rejuvenation and protection for skin.

Shielding Lip Conditioner: The same plant-based, positively-charged conditioning agents in the Skin Conditioner are also found in the Lip Conditioner. A beeswax base is enriched with natural butters (Kokum and Cupuacu) and oils (Coconut, Red Raspberry and Rice Bran) that form an emollient film on the lips.

Shielding Detangler: Coconut oil, panthenol and marshmallow root condition and separate hair strands. And positively charged, plant-based conditioning agents bond all the goodness to hair to help prevent static and unsnaggle tangles.

ARE WIND THERAPY PRODUCTS NATURAL?

On average, over 90% of the ingredients in Wind Therapy products are derived from natural sources--plants, water, or minerals like zinc oxide, silica (from quartz), and titanium dioxide. Wind Therapy’s advanced formulas use natural oils with superior fatty acid profiles to benefit and protect all skin types.

Every ingredient in each product is carefully chosen as the least irritating and most advanced for shielding performance. Wind Therapy incorporates beneficial botanical extracts into each product to enhance performance and provide light natural scents that diminish quickly so customers can still use their own signature scents or choose to remain fragrance-free.

The other ingredients consist of things we at Wind Therapy consider safe, and very, very important, like preservatives and chelators that help prevent the growth of harmful bacteria rancidity.  Wind Therapy products are free of parabens, artificial colors and fragrance. Products are tested on human volunteers--never on animals.

HOW DO I USE THE SKIN CONDITIONER?

Apply with water! This is important to obtain the best results. Wind Therapy will bind that moisture to skin and give you a head start on the day. Apply immediately after washing, or wet hands and pat face with water just prior to application. Follow-up throughout the day with your favorite sunscreen.

HOW DO I USE THE DETANGLER?

Wind Therapy’s Shielding Detangler can be used on wet or “dry” hair. The absolute best way to untangle knots is in the shower after shampooing. Yes—after shampoo! Apply an amount appropriate to your volume of hair (a quarter-sized dollop for shoulder length hair) and work through from root to ends. Allow about a minute for the product to absorb into strands, then gently work out knots with fingers. Use as a leave-in conditioner to help reduce static charge and future tangles.

Not ready to shower? Wind Therapy Shielding Detangler can be blended in the hands with a small amount of water and allowed to absorb into dry knots. More water, rather than product, can be added to help loosen tough tangles.

HOW DO I USE THE LIP CONDITIONER?

Use Wind Therapy Shielding Lip Conditioner like you would use any other lip balm. Apply as often as needed--which may be much less than your typical balm!. For the longest-lasting luscious lips, apply before bedtime and start the day with soft, hydrated lips.

WHAT ABOUT UVA/B PROTECTION?

Wind Therapy does not contain the chemicals used in sunblock preparations.  These chemicals typically take around 30% of a formula.  Instead of having 30% of the Wind Therapy formula consist of sunblockers, it instead contains more antioxidants and skin-repairing ingredients. Wind Therapy will provide a nutrient-rich base that only needs to be applied twice a day (morning and night).

A sunscreen with the protection level of your choice should be applied every 2-4 hours throughout the day.
