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.

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.’
