Going Green with Labeling

Monday, March 11th, 2013
Natural vs. Naturally Derived
At one time or another, you’ve all tried to decipher the labeling of your favorite   cosmetic product, only to leave scratching your head and wondering what it all means. By not giving us clear guidelines on what Natural and Naturally Derived means, I think this industry likes to fool us into thinking we are getting something we are not. So here’s the scoop for those of you who are still confused.
Natural products are raw ingredients from nature that have been expressed or extracted from their natural source. Some good examples of these ingredients are vegetable oils, butters, essential oils, hydrosols, clays, and herbs.
Naturally Derived ingredients begin their journey as a natural substance, but then are altered by a chemical reaction created by using synthetics or other natural ingredients.
Two good examples of this process are sodium lauryl sulfate (known to cause irritation) and castile soap. As you can see, Naturally Derived products include a wide range of substances, some harmful to your skin and others that are much more gentle.

The key here is to care what you are using on your body and to know your ingredients. Choosing the purity of a product is certainly a personal one, however my rule of thumb says, if it’s not good enough to eat, I don’t want it on my skin either. That is why all of the creams and oils I sell are always made from organic, Natural ingredients.

Scrubbing Can Be Dangerous for the Environment

Sunday, December 2nd, 2012

I’m sure at one time or another we’ve all used a commercial scrub in the shower or bath, but did you know that most scrubs contain micro-plastics (smaller than 1 millimeter) that are dangerous to our waterways?

Because plastics are not biodegradable, are not filtered out in water treatment plants, and only broken down into smaller pieces by the sun, they wind up in our rivers, creeks and eventually flow out to sea becoming toxic food for life living there.

Does your present product have micro-plastics included in its ingredients? If the ingredients list polyethylene or polystyrene it does.

The good news though, is that there are environmentally friendly scrubs on the market that contain natural materials like walnut hulls, rice, ground fruit pits, and oatmeal that can get the job done just as efficiently.
