Thinking of buying your Dad aftershave or cologne for a Father’s day gift on Sunday?

Well before you reach for the Old Spice or Calvin Klein, its worth knowing that Men’s products often contain chemicals linked with health problems.

Personal care products are not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or any other government agency. It is actually legal for many men’s cosmetics to contain chemicals with health risks, which have never been tested for safety, and chemicals not to be mentioned on product labels.

The everyday products that your Father may be using could contain ingredients linked to cancer and hormone disruption.

Here at The Organic Salon we believe in providing completely natural and organic products free of any chemicals. Click here to see our natural Men’s beauty products for a perfect Fathers day gift.

Recent research suggests that women are ingesting a shocking amount of chemicals each year just from their beauty routines.

As a result the demand for natural and organic products has increased greatly in the last couple of years. So it is important consumers know that what they are investing in and putting on to their skin is organic or natural.

Authors of The Green Beauty Bible say: ‘The important thing is to look for a certification symbol such as the Soil Association symbol, or the Ecocert symbol.’

They continue: ‘These guarantee that the ingredients are sustainably produced, without pesticides, herbicides or fungicides, and with minimum environmental impact.’

Here at theorganicsalon.com we only retail completely organic and natural beauty products.

Well it’s all organic and natural of course, but there’s a little bit more to it than that!

Spiezia’s ‘Made For Life’ vision means that all their products are created using techniques that are considerate to the environment. They use essential oils and vegetable / seed oils, and only natural organic material that can be returned to the land.

They have developed a unique process which uses solar and lunar energy to make the most of the air-dried herbs and flowers used in their products. 

Spiezia says they take a measured quantity of herbs and flowers, mix with a measured quantity of extra virgin olive oil and allow to stand in a glass jar in their maceration room for four weeks. 

During this time, the heat from the sun and the cooler nights draw the essence from the plant and infuse the oil.  The mixture is then pressed and filtered, and is then used as the base of our formulations.

Cold pressing refers to oils obtained through pressing and grinding fruit or seeds with the use of heavy granite millstones or modern stainless steel presses. 

Due to the temperature sensitivity of essential oils, it is vital to use a steam distillation process.  The process involves taking the part of the plant from which you want to extract the essence.The oil is the condensed or extracted from the remaining water, leaving you with the purest, highest quality essential oil.

Theorganicsalon.com chooses to retail Spiezia Organics because they put so much care in to choosing their ingredients and making their products.

Suki ColorIt is claimed that women who use make-up daily are absorbing nearly 5lb of chemicals a year into their bodies.

Many use more than 20 different beauty products a day to look their best while 9 out of 10 apply make-up which is past its use by date.

Such use of cosmetics and toiletries means that a concoction of 4lb 6oz of chemicals a year is absorbed through the skin.

Richard Bence, an advocate of organic beauty products, believes that absorbing chemicals through the skin in more dangerous than eating them, he said:

‘We really need to start questioning the products we are putting on our skin and not just assume that the chemicals in them are safe.’

‘If lipstick gets into your mouth it is broken down by the enzymes in saliva and in the stomach. But chemicals get straight into your bloodstream, there is no protection.’

Warnings over using out-of-date make-up have also been issued by the Royal College of Optometrists which believes such items are a “hothouse” for harmful bacteria.

Among the chemicals under scrutiny are parabens which are preservatives that have been linked to cancer.

Also sodium lauryl sulphate, used to help create lather in soaps, shampoo, shaving foam and bubble bath, which can cause skin irritation.

Theorganicsalon.com knows how important the products you put on your skin are, that’s why we only retail completely natural and organic ranges.

Pai Organics Through extensive research the founder of Pai found that a lot of the personal care products available today contain harmful ingredients and were causing her to have a bad skin allergy.

It was this that encouraged Sarah Brown to start up Pai, a completely natural range of skincare.

Pai believes because up to 60% of what you put on your skin enters your body, the skin cream you use is as important as the food you eat.

That’s why their products are made from the highest grade, certified organic ingredients – free from artificial colours, fragrances, parabens, petrochemicals and phthalates.

Pai was recently voted Number 1 organic beauty product in Grazia and its really no surprise!

Spiezia OrganicsSpiezia Organics skincare have carried out a very interesting survey, highlighting a huge gap in consumers’ understanding how to ‘read’ the labels on skincare products.

Spiezia Organics commissioned an independent survey of 100 customers.

Over half of those asked, were unaware that the ingredients on skincare products are always listed in % order of constituents.

49% thought pure, organic and natural statements on packaging meant that these products didn’t contain any chemicals and 11% were not sure.

39% did not know what % of natural ingredients must be used to make a ‘natural’ product and a further 24% guessed at 100%.

Fact: Pure or natural products need only contain 2% natural ingredients – the rest can be anything, chemicals included.

71% believed organic meant that no chemicals had been added to the product and 6% believed it meant the product was handmade.

Fact: In skincare there is no legal definition of organic and there are no EU guidelines to be followed.

Spiezia Organics suggest a couple of tips:

• Look for the Soil Association or Ecocert logo on the label- these ensure the ingredients have been sustainably produced and can be traced right back to the farmer and even the field.
• Read the ingredient list – this is a good measure of how natural or botanically based the product is.

Amanda Barlow, Managing Director of Spiezia, says: ‘At Spiezia Organics we produce skincare products which are, where possible, 100% organic – in fact they are so organic you can eat them.’

Speizia Organics products are available to buy at the theorganicsalon.com, for information please click here

Switching from conventional products to organic and natural products can be an important decision for you and your skin. Organic Cosmetics are a totally different ball game compared conventional cosmetics; they differ in almost everything, the way to use them, the amount to use and many other things, so here are 5 tips to get the most out of your Organic Cosmetics:

1 Organic Cosmetics may take longer to get used to in terms of how you use the product. Let the product work for you, going organic means changing the way you use your products.

2 A little goes a long way, organic cosmetics are more concentrated and contain essential oils, which can be very powerful in small amounts.

3 When it comes down to shampoos, using organic shampoos can be a little trickier than using conventional shampoos due to the fact that conventional are full of chemicals and are easier to apply. Start by putting a little amount in your hand, transfer a bit to the other hand and spread through the hair before you start to massage it and use water to help it spread. It might take more time and a bit more effort to use organic shampoos but believe they are as effective as conventional and you hair will thank you.

4 Ditch the cotton wool and get yourself a few face cloths you will not only be helping yourself but the environment too. Take off your organic cleansers with a face cloth, this will give a little bit of exfoliation and better results from your products. Remember to change your face cloth every 2-3 days and your face cloth should be used only by you.

5 If you just switched from conventional to organic cosmetics, your skin could come up with pimples and spots, DON’T PANIC, this happens because your skin was addicted to the chemicals and by stop using them the skin will start to de-tox and cleanse itself, give it a month or so for you skin to settle and get used to natural products.

Hopefully this list will help get the most out your Organic cosmetics and Organic and Natural Skincare Products, if you have any questions feel free to contact us at The Organic Salon.com.

Consumers are becoming increasingly aware about what they put on their bodies as well as what goes inside. So it is no surprise that natural and organic products are the fastest-growing segment of the cosmetics industry.

According to a London consulting company, sales of natural and organic beauty products are soaring, with revenues projected to approach $7 billion this year in the United States, up $1 billion from last year.

Retail sales have climbed from $51.6m in 2004 to $88.6m in 2006. Projected retail sales for 2008 are $120m.

Interest in natural and organic cosmetics can be attributed in part to social responsibility – preserving the environment using sustainable ingredients and biodegradable packaging.

According to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a coalition of women’s public health, and consumer-rights groups founded in 2002, ingredients like parabans, are widely used in the beauty industry. Environmental groups warn of the risks, and manufacturers assure consumers the ingredients are safe in small doses, but now even the big retailers are making changes.

Marketing Insider, of an Ohio firm, Colette Chandler, said:

‘As companies realize this marketplace exists, and that more consumers are gravitating in this direction, all of a sudden they say this is where I need to be, as consumers become more knowledgeable, she added, they want to know what’s in their bodies.’
