Our Ingredients, Our Mission Part 2
In our last blog we talked about our values and what they are but now we’d like to let you know why our values are so important to us, specifically our natural ingredients. Any chemist can slap a cosmetic product together and sell it in the health and beauty aisle, but is it really healthy for you? When a consumer chooses to purchase a conventional beauty product, do they really know what is going into their body and what effects these products have on them? Probably not. And to make matters worse, the health risks of some chemicals used in non- natural products cannot be determined except after years of use in a man or woman’s daily regime.
Alma Natural Quick Spa strives to make a difference in a massive industry that is filled to the brim with unsanitary salons and questionable unnatural products. Our ingredients are taken straight from the earth without man made substances or filler so that our customers can feel confident that their spa experience is a truly healthy one. The large majority of our ingredients are also organic, fair trade, sustainably grown and harvested and all around eco and people friendly. This ensures that we feel just as good about buying them as you will when you try them!
On average, a woman uses 12 products on her skin, lips and hair per day which contain a grand total of about 150 different chemicals.
‘That’s about 13 chemicals per product. How many chemicals do you put on your body every morning? Think makeup, soaps, lotions and deodorant’
These chemicals leach into our bodies through our skin and cause harm to our system. So many of the products we use without a second thought contain chemicals that are either carcinogens, reproductive toxins, irritants or all three. We want to change the idea that beauty must be manufactured in a plant and our bodies altered by man-made chemicals in order to achieve perfection. We believe that a daily routine full of the products that mother nature intended can make even the dullest skin glow and anyone a natural beauty!
Oils are a wonderful ingredient that can be harvested from just about any plant and used in all types of treatments and remedies. The list of benefits that can be gained from different oils is about a mile long; this week we’ll be talking about non-essential oils.
