Salon Libby on Choosing Hair Products and Cosmetics

Personal Ideas Comments Off on Salon Libby on Choosing Hair Products and Cosmetics

Ever wonder why Salon Libby bills itself as Orlando’s premier organic and traditional hair salon? The reason is partly because we know that permanently altering your hair color or texture requires chemicals that can be harmful to your health. Even the most respected natural and organic brands contain chemicals to make their products work. The difference is in the amount of exposure.

 We strive to educate ourselves about the numerous products on the market so that we can bring you great salon products that give both the results you are looking for while minimizing our guests and employees exposure to harsh chemicals that are absorbed through the skin.

We are committed to growing green. Thus, Salon Libby’s back bar is stocked with Simply Organic products. The results are fabulous and we like the feel and fragrance of their products. We believe that when you leave Salon Libby, your hair should be beautiful and your health uncompromised. For more information about Simply Organic, watch their video here:  http://www.simplyorganicbeauty.com/about/mission

It’s not only your hair, your makeup, moisturizers, soap and lotions contain chemicals too. It’s worth the time to learn which chemicals to avoid. Non-profit organization, Environmental Working Group (EWG) has developed a cosmetic database to help consumers minimize chemical exposure in beauty and skin care products. Here’s a printable chart from EWG for you to take along with you on your next personal care shopping escape: http://www.ewg.org/files/EWG_cosmeticsguide.pdf.

If you would like to do a little research beforehand, check out their cosmetic database: http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/. And, we know that our health is directly related to the environment and our food. For health tips on everything from which produce is grown with the most pesticides to environmental tips check out their main site at www.ewg.org.
