Natural Skin Care Product Active Ingredients And What They Do

Posted on November 24, 2018 in Uncategorized

The active ingredients you will find in commercial skincare products can also be found in many foods and ingredients you have at home. Here are what they do for your skin and how they are used in skincare products.

ALPHA HYDROXY ACIDS (AHA’S)

These are fruit acids naturally derived from fruit extracts. They slough off dead skin cells to reveal younger more youthful looking skin. As we age our skins renewal process slows down and these help to replace that process giving your skin a younger appearance.

ANTIOXIDANTS

Ingredients that contain vitamin A, C end E, green tea, copper, grapeseed, and kinetin help skin by neutralizing or scavenging free radicals which are molecules that destroy skin cells.

BETA-HYDROXY ACIDS

These work in a similar way as AHA’s but are less potent so therefore less irritating to skin. The most common and well known one is Salicylic acid which is used in acne treatments and dandruff shampoos.

BOTANICALS

Ingredients from a naturally derived source (usually plants) believed for centuries to have healing or regenerating powers for the skin. Examples are Aloe vera, ginkgo and ginseng.

COENZYME Q10

This is a nutrient found in every cell of our body known to be a powerful wrinkle buster.

ESSENTIAL OILS

INFUSIONS OR TEAS

Infusions are herbs or other parts of plants, fruits, skins and barks or teas. They make great toners with soothing, calming & many other properties that are very beneficial for skin.

Top 4 Tips to Create An Online Product Training Material

Posted on November 22, 2018 in Uncategorized

Product knowledge training is essentially aimed at training employees of organizations to share and update useful information about its products, their features and benefits. However, many a times, learners are overwhelmed with the amount of knowledge they need to grasp all at once. Thus, online product training material needs to be customized accordingly so that learners can absorb the required amount of knowledge as well as apply the same practically. Here are some tips that can help you to develop effective online product training courses.

Set the learning goals beforehand

Charting out the learning goals well in advance allows you to create a product training course, which is effective as well as functional. For this purpose, you need to define your target audience at the very onset in order to confirm their requirements. Normally, the target learners of product training course are usually, the sales team, service team or customer service representatives.

However, a course designer needs to know that the training material for a sales team would be different from the one intended for customer care representatives. For example, a salesperson needs to know the value proposition of the product so that they can effectively convey it to the prospective customer. On the contrary, a customer care executive should be aware about troubleshooting techniques so that he can help customers when faced with service issues. The online training program should be able to address these individual learning goals.

Determining how much information is required

Depending on the requirements of the individual group of learners, the training material needs to be tailored. Thus, determining the quantity of information required for catering to a particular group is extremely important. While a sales person might need a particular level of knowledge about products, a service engineer or technician might require an in-depth technical knowledge of the product. Therefore, organizing training material according to the learner’s profile makes it more relevant and productive.

Focus on the motivation levels of learners

Considering the motivational levels of learners is extremely important when designing a course. Unless you know what motivates your target audience to take up a particular course, you won’t be able to provide anything relevant to them. For example, a salesperson is likely to be interested in knowing the benefits of a particular product, while an engineer will be keen on learning about the technical aspects of a particular product. Designing course materials according to multiple choices is likely to trigger interest in joining online training programs.

Create a brief structure for long product line

Many a times, the training course has to deal with long product lines of the company. In such cases, the instructional designers should focus on creating a brief structure that is relevant to a majority of the products. You can furnish information with the help of info-graphics, where you can focus on individual features, benefits, cost and their USP.

Follow these tips to create a product training course that yields value-added results in terms of employee training.
