Making A Mindful choice for your Health – Nurture Salon & Spa
It’s 6 AM. You crawl out of bed and stumble to the coffee machine for a pre-brewed cup of hot Organic Coffee. Only 4% of that coffee needs to be Organic for it to say Organic – Did you know that? You ponder going back to bed for a few minutes, but inevitably you decide to make your first attempt to freshen up.
Pause. I want you to take a short quiz. The products listed below are typically used each and every day by both Men, Women and Children. What products do you use morning and night? (Please Circle)
Body Wash, face Wash, face moisturizer, body and hand moisturizer, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, soap, exfoliants, body scrubs, styling products, foot creams, perfume, lip moisturizer, lipstick, makeup, mascara, deodorant, hair color, hair growth treatments
Most beauty / personal hygiene products contain dangerous hidden ingredients know as Parabens. These additive help to preserve the products shelf life. In the last decade, Parabens have been widely tested and scientifically linked to the development of Cancer at an alarming rate, climbing from 72% in the 90’s to 98% in 2008. These preservatives have similar properties to the Female Hormone Estrogen, and can completely throw off normal hormonal levels, which can in turn lead to cancer. Researchers often find Parabens in Breast Tissue of Cancer patients, as it is often a hormone positive or Negative Cancer. Many specialists in Breast Cancer suggest those diagnosed to completely omit all products made with parabens, especially those for personal hygiene and beauty.
How is this possible? Well, how many of these products did you circle, in which you apply or use on yourself in the run of a single day? Not including smearing it on your children, spouses, or if your profession directly involves the use of these products, like those staff in a Salon & Spa. These products are being absorbed through your respiratory system and the skin, your largest organ in the body.
You may not have realized how many products you use on a day to day basis. You may not have known of Parabens and how harmful they are to our bodies. What do we have if we don’t have our health?
Many households are effected by Cancer. On a personal note; several family members on both my mothers and father’s sides, have either died from cancer, or have been diagnosed and now live cancer free. I started my career as a Stylist in 2004, working with a company who appreciated organic beauty and the earth. Shortly after starting my career at this location, the company announced they were reformulating, and removing these unknown chemicals called parabens from their product as it was deemed harmful by scientists. Shortly after this, a family member was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Today they are healthy and well. After researching ways to incorporate natural elements for health and beauty, including essential oils and natural supplements, I began to wonder: If a Natural and Chemical Free lifestyle could help improve your entire body (skin, hair, nails all included) why are Professional in the Beauty Industry choosing to continue old, unwholesome methods VS a path in Natural Health and Beauty. Health Conscious products and environments benefit not only the Clients, but the entire working staff.
The concept for Nurture Salon & Spa was easy. Chemical Free. We offer Spa services including hand made scrubs and masks made often from fruits, salts or sugars, with natural benefits such as antioxidants, brightening and hydrating properties.
