Why Organic Skincare?

November 6, 2019

If you are in pursuit of a healthy lifestyle, choosing organic skincare is a priority. Why?  Professional organic skincare products work better, and are better for you.

When you choose organic skincare, you are choosing products whose ingredients work with the natural systems of your skin and body. Given the right nutrients, our skin has the ability to care for and mend itself. Our bodies use nutrients absorbed not only through food, but also through the skin. It is medically understood that what goes on your skin absorbs into your bloodstream and is carried through your body.(Think of Lidocaine patches or the stop smoking patches)  Why is it that we examine what we put IN our body and not what we put ON it? Did you know that after eight seconds of putting something on your skin, it is as though you have eaten it?  Actually, 60% of what you put on your skin makes its way into your body…only 30% gets in through the food you eat (stomach acids destroy some of what we eat). You have probably thought about the benefits of eating a healthy diet. What about the effects of all the chemicals in the skin products that you are slathering on and rubbing in?

Increasing studies show the connection between illness and chemicals. We need to eliminate or reduce our exposure. Synthetics are simply not necessary in skincare and in many cases they’re just scary. Sometimes they are causing harm we cannot see.   This exposure rears its ugly head as skin irritation, chronic headaches, hormone disruption, and more serious issues over the long term. The range of symptoms is vast.

Why do companies use synthetics? First and foremost: money. Cheap ingredients make more of a profit. Many commercial products will give you instant gratification. Most of these products are designed to do a simple job… Smoother skin, less visible wrinkles, tighter skin, sun spots disappear, and they can deliver. All too often there is a high price… asphyxiation of the skin, accelerated dehydration, photosensitivity. Cutting oxygen exchange to the skin, premature aging, increased risk of sun spots. Yes, the very things we were fighting….

Organic Skincare has come a long way from when I started using them in the mid 80’s. They are more elegant and they work. Plant stem cell technology, acids and anti-oxidants are paving the way in the anti-aging arena. Have you detoxified your skincare routine?

what people are saying

“I love this place. I have seen Joanne for both massage and facial's and she is incredible. I was an LMT for 16 years so it can be challenging for me to find someone I like for bodywork. She's excellent. The feel of the space is so comforting and light. The products used are all organic and smell wonderful. Highly recommend.”

“How to get away from it all? Have a massage or facial or both from Julie! I had both and my experience was total relaxation. She intuitively knew where to work out the stress in my body. No words needed to be spoken. Amazing! At the last minute, I decided to get my brows waxed. PERFECT and no pain! Might have been a ride from Templeton but well worth going to this little heaven on Earth.”

- Colleen F.

“We're so lucky to have a high-end spa in our neighborhood and not have to pay the high-end prices. I've been going here for years. They use products I've seen at resort spas. They've educated me on the right products to take care of my face. They know what they're talking about!”
