DON’T BE ‘GREEN WASHED’
- 5th January, 2015
You would be horrified if you knew the true ingredients – the cocktail of man made synthetic chemicals and preservatives in your white emulsions!
Over the years I have worked with big beauty houses such as Aveda, Decleor, Clarins, Guinot, Kanebo to name a few. As a beauty therapist skin care is something that I am passionate about. The very creams that are sold to you at a premium are actually ageing your skin and compromising it’s health. Even more alarming is the fact that these chemicals are put in the creams to maximise the cosmetic company’s profits – not to benefit your skin or your health.
There is currently no regulation. They can put 2% ‘natural‘ or ‘organic‘ ingredient in their product and can legally make natural or organic claims throughout their packaging and marketing. Personally – I find this unacceptable and completely unethical on so many levels. They would not be allowed to get away with this deception it it were food – so why skin care??!! Consider this – the skin is the largest organ of the body – it has a very good absorption rate. What we apply to the skin becomes absorbed by the body…..
Here is a link for further reference on the key baddies – become a bottle turner, read the label and look up the ingredients to see what’s actually being sold to you to put on your skin. http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/
I have recently opened a boutique beauty salon with a twist! My salon ‘Sunshine For The Soul’ -situated in Poulton-le-Fylde – is an Ethical Beauty Salon. You won’t find purer products than our luxury, professional skin care brand – Pinks Boutique – completely 100% natural, cruelty free and Vegan friendly. Pinks Boutique is hand blended in England and certified organic by the British Soil Association.
Don’t be fooled by other salon brands which make claims to be natural or have nice packaging. Unless they are endorsed by the Soil Association (UK) or Eco Cert (France) you can’t trust the hype!
If organic skin care is something that you would like to try then don’t hesitate to contact me and book your salon appointment -experience skin care the way nature intended – book your Pinks Boutique Eco Chic Organic facial and you will automatically be upgraded to a Pinks Boutique Signature Facial by quoting BLOG POST.
