Our Story

Kissed by Grace

ISUN first appeared as a vision of light and energy, a magnificent tapestry of alchemy, brimming over with life-force energy and inspired by a true intention to help uplift and bring harmony to body, mind and spirit for total well-being. With Grace and in collaboration with nature, exquisite, transforming and skin-awakening ISUN Alive & Ageless skincare creations were born.

ISUN is about honoring all of our connections with the awareness that the Light that exists in us also exists in others and all nature. Understanding our sacred connections, we have sourced organic and wildcrafted ingredients for our products that give back to ourselves, others and nature.

With love, intention and gifts of nature, we have created ‘products with a presence’ beyond the usual.

Our Connection with Nature

There is a feeling of exhilaration when we connect with living nature. A sense of joy and youthful vitality swells in us as we absorb the life-force energies found in the purity and aliveness of nature embracing us.

Our own expressions of vitality and life expand when our bodies and senses are nourished by living light, living water, living plants, living minerals and the unseen elevating and gentle spirit we can feel in the beauty and dance of nature.

Happy Plants, Happy Skin

Living plants are made of biophotons (light), living water, ions and an impressive array of nutrients that create happy plants. In turn, happy plants support happy skin and a feeling of well-being.

Science has explained feelings of well-being that may be experienced when skin is exposed to living plant-life by demonstrating an interaction between a substance applied topically and our nervous system. This interaction occurs via neurotransmitter receptor sites in skin that receive messages from either touch or substances topically applied. When either happens, neurotransmitters are produced in the skin that send signals to the brain that are favorable or unfavorable.

The same as touch can make us feel either pleasure or pain, so can a substance applied to our skin make us feel good or bad, happy or sad due to the neurotransmitter receptor sites in our skin’s surface.

To illustrate, if a substance containing chemicals that are not in harmony with our bodies is applied to our skin, our skin might react by producing a rash or other irritation. In addition, the neurotransmitters produced send stress signals to the brain which responds by altering the way we feel. We may feel irritated, angry or depressed and not know why.

On the other hand, if we apply plant-life substances free of chemicals that are in harmony with our body, the neurotransmitter receptor sites in our skin send signals to the brain to produce neurotransmitters, called endorphins. These are known as happy hormones because of the feelings of well-being and pleasure they produce.

ISUN skincare products are free of chemicals and other toxins, and support the release of ‘wellbeing’ neurotransmitters.

Living light, living plants

Living plants are teeming with superconductive energy and are infused with healing vibrations of light, color and geometries that are in harmony with our bodies and our skin. They contain powerful regenerating nutrients and life-force energy harnessed from the sun as they transmute light into life.

Science calls the light emitted by living cells in our body and in plant life, biophotons. Biophotons (light) are the key to communication between plant cells and our bodies.

This is the most subtle, yet most powerful aspect of energy fields that are within and surrounding all living things. Without light (biophotons), there is no life.

When biophotons are not present in plant life, there is no communication between the cells in plants and the cells in our bodies, including our skin.

Topically applied products that contain chemicals or synthetic ingredients may produce a reaction, but they are not communicating harmoniously with the cells in our skin or bodies and can create physical and even mental imbalances.

The flow of communication between the biophotons (light) in plants and the biophotons (light) in our bodies opens the pathway for effective regeneration and balance and an overall feeling of well-being.

Living light, living water

Light is the life-force of living water that carries all life. It dynamically expands and contracts as it flows and jubilantly dances in spiraling vortexes over rocks and fallen branches. In rapid movement, it gains life-enhancing biophotons (light) and ions and absorbs oxygen to create a molecular structure that powerfully increases its energy.

Living water has an extraordinary ability to retain energy and memory and can be used as a medium of consciousness to help heal, uplift and enhance life. Research scientist, Masaru Emoto proved to the scientific community that intention expressed in words or thoughts are captured and retained in water, including the water in our bodies which is approximately 70% of our physical structure.

Emoto recorded the crystal formations that occurred when a word or thought was spoken or written on a piece of paper and taped on a vessel of water. Positive words or thoughts such as “Love and Gratitude” caused the water to form beautiful crystalline structures. When negative thoughts or words were expressed, the crystalline structures became disorganized.

Living water is life enhancing and can be programmed with intention to carry positive messages with healing energy to our bodies or any life form as Masaru Emoto demonstrated. This occurs by transmission of the subtle energy in the intention of the message that is received by the biophotons (light) in living water and communicated via electromagnetic currents. This is how the power of intention works whether the water is in an ocean, or in a glass, or in plants or our bodies.

In our bodies, a healing intention may be received by the biophotons present in our bodily fluids and carried via electromagnetic currents to our organs and tissues. In our skin, the largest organ in our body, positive healing intentions imparted in living water that is applied topically to our skin, has the potential to facilitate more rapid communication for repair and regeneration.

Wildcrafted & organic plantlife

Wildcrafted plants are harvested from their natural habitats where they grow freely and untouched by humankind. They are ideally supported by compatible plants and eco-systems in soil that is teeming with abundant life and nutrients to enhance their growth. This typically results in plants free of chemicals that are higher in nutrient values than cultivated organic and commercially farmed plants.

Wildcrafted plants most often grow in pristine environments such as forested regions or around bodies of water where there is an unseen life-force energy that can be sensed. This energy contributes in subtle ways to the dynamic properties found in wildcrafted plants. Edible wildcrafted plants are often called “superfoods” because of their higher nutrient and lively energy values.

Higher in superconducting ions and biophotons than cultivated plants, wildcrafted plants are the most in harmony with our skin and our bodies offering optimal benefits and a feeling of overall well-being due to their dynamic properties.

Although wildcrafted plants have no certification regulations and are rare to source, we consider them to be of the highest value and they are our first choice of ingredients for our products. Our second ingredient choice is cultivated organic plant-life, both certified and non-certified organically grown plants from sources we trust. When we cannot source an ingredient that is either wildcrafted or organic, we use a minor selection of natural or naturally-derived ingredients for some products.

Honoring Living Nature

Ancient and indigenous people recognized the intelligence and living spirit of plants and water. In many ancient traditions, people communicated with the spirit of a plant or water, and telepathically received knowledge about its unique uses and benefits to humankind.

In return for the knowledge given them, the people communicated back messages of gratitude and love to the spirit of the plant. With this beautiful exchange of loving energy, both the people and the plant-life thrived.

Some of our ingredients, especially those from the Amazon rainforest, are sourced from indigenous people who today, still honor the gifts of nature bestowed on them in a sacred way.

We believe through the healing intentions, love and gratitude expressed by those who gather the wild plants, the life-force energy of the plant becomes fuller, and a deeper, subtle energy that is beyond the usual, is received.

In our own manufacturing practices, as we make ISUN skin care products, we too, honor the sacred depths of meaning from the gifts of nature we use to create our products. In a sacred space within ourselves, we express our gratitude for the beauty and transmission of the Light of Consciousness nature gives to us.

Golden Principles

Underlying all we do in the creations and outreach of ISUN and our products, is our belief that a true measure for happiness and success in life is living from the heart with a depth of caring expressed by treating ourselves, others and our Earth with loving kindness. This way of living springs naturally from us when we understand that we are all connected as one Light. In this awareness, it is natural to graciously give to ourselves, others and all life with gratitude and without condition.

Do No Harm

Our guiding principle in the creation of ISUN from sourcing our ingredients to our manufacturing practices to the consumer, is that no harm is brought to the land where ingredients are harvested, to the people or the environment where ingredients are sourced, to animals, microorganisms and their eco-systems, and to the individuals who use our products.For those who work with and use our products, this means that we make only safe, beneficial products that use no harmful chemicals and only the purest, highest energy ingredients we can source. The only preservative we use in those products that require extra preservation, is aspen bark, a common tree found in our mountain region.

High Integrity Ingredients

All ISUN products are based on plant ingredients – herbs, base oils and essential oils. Our ingredients are primarily wildcrafted, organic or natural and contain no harmful chemicals. Some of our ingredients have been sourced from indigenous cultures where they are blessed in sacred ceremony before they arrive to us. We believe the intentional blessings increase their energy values and benefits. In our lab, we too, take care to enhance the energy values of our ingredients and finished products with the use of positive intentions (reference Masaru Emoto’s research), placement of geometric symbols on ingredient and bulk product containers, sound & color vibration and gemstone energy.

Processing Awareness

Our products are made with cold-processing techniques when possible. This helps maintain peak activity with high nutrient and energy values. Plant electrons undamaged by heat or chemicals are more in harmony with our skin and bodies. We make the majority of our herb oil and extracts in our lab to insure their integrity and aliveness. Our herb oils are the basis of all our oil-soluble products. They are especially abundant with high nutrient values and lively energy. The herbs infused into our oil blends are kept at a low temperature of 90°-95°F for 14-30 days. This allows the active constituents to diffuse into the oil without damaging the properties of the herbs offering the greatest benefits to skin.

Manufacturing Compliance

All ISUN skincare products are formulated and developed by founder and CEO, Bunnie Gulick. They are made by our talented lab team in our manufacturing facility located in the pristine environment of the San Juan Mountains of Colorado, called the ‘Shining Mountains’ by the Ute Indians who inhabited the area. Every product batch produced is tested both by an independent laboratory and with our own lab testing procedures. We are GMP (good manufacturing practice), ISO and Osha compliant.

High Integrity Packaging

ISUN skincare products are packaged in recyclable dark violet glass manufactured and tested in Switzerland. This unique glass has been shown to better preserve natural products as well as extend shelf life and prevent penetration of radiation from airport xray machines and other sources of radiation. A limited number of products are packaged in black PET plastic.

Giving Back to Our ISUN Team

We keep a sacred space in our ISUN facility for weekly team meditation, higher knowledge discussions, breathing exercises and for individual silent breaks in their workday. This helps our team to hold focus and maintain balance in their personal and working lives.

Giving Back to Others

We donate monthly proceeds to organizations* that foster growth of the spirit in raising conscious awareness and self-discovery in individuals. We believe that if individual consciousness is raised into greater understanding of our inner Light and our connection with others and all life, the world may soon be a better place where understanding, compassion and loving kindness prevails and hatred, anger, fear and wars will cease to be. We also support the development of safe water systems, feeding impoverished children and protection of our worlds rain forests for the preservation of our planet.
