Purchasing organic products is something that is becoming more and more popular, especially as people begin to really look at what what is in the foods we eat and the products we use everyday. From organic bananas to green household cleaners, people are discovering that not only are buying these products an excellent way to reduce their environmental footprint, but that they’re also much healthier for you than many traditional products.
Organic skin care and makeup is another realm that is quickly gaining popularity. Making sure that our skin, especially our delicate facial skin is being treated with soothing and natural ingredients is important when it comes to maintaining a healthy and beautiful complexion. Athena Salon and Spa, a premier Windsor spa understands the importance of natural ingredients on our skin. They have an array of natural salon products and spa services that moisturize and rejuvenate naturally and steer clear of harmful toxins or other ingredients.
According to a recent blog post on Globalhealingcenter.com, Government regulations allow virtually any ingredient to be used in the manufacture of products that we use daily on our skin, hair and nails. The FDA establishes the regulations and standards in the US regarding the manufacture of drugs and food. The problem is that they do not pay as much attention to skin care or makeup products as they should. This has allowed for very harmful chemicals to be used in creating mass-marketed skin and spa products. Some of the harmful ingredients found in traditional products often include mercury, dioxane, ammonium laureth sulfate, isopropyl, polyethylene glycol, etc.
Toxins like these are absorbed easily by the skin, however, the body has no way of ridding itself of them. Therefore, they have the ability of remaining in your body potentially damaging organs throughout your body.
How scary is that? Does it sound like you would want any of those ingredients even close to your delicate skin? This is why it makes complete sense to not only pay attention to ingredients in salon products, but to make the extra effort to only use products that have a healthy and natural ingredient list.
Athena Salon and Spa understands the importance of a healthy and natural ingredient list when it comes to skin care and salon products which is why they offer a number of organic and natural product lines including Eminence Organics, Farm House Fresh (a vegan and gluten free line), Eufora (using certified organic aloevera for it’s base, sulfate and paraben free), and Alfaparf color (with no amonia options).
In this blog series, we will continue to delve deeper into the benefits of organic skin care products and techniques in order to help you make better decisions and product purchases that are not only good for your skin but will also enhance your natural beauty. Stay tuned for our next post that will explain how to read product labels and what to look for in organic skin care and makeup products.
