DIY Sugar Body Scrub

Via the most recent GOOP newsletter, here is the recipe for the Sprout Wellness Sugar Body Scrub that you can make at home: 1 cup organic demerara sugar (or any other coarse sugar will work)1-2 tsp organic unrefined coconut oil2 tsp organic shredded coconut Mix shredded coconut and sugar in a small bowl, stir until blended. Heat coconut oil in a small pot just until melted. Pour coconut oil over sugar and shredded coconut, you'll notice it liquefies some of the sugar. With a fork or spoon, stir oil into the sugar mixture. It will start to spread. Continue until the sugar is all one consistency.
To use: Apply a small amount to areas you want to exfoliate and moisturize.

Seriously. I want to eat this.

StormSister Spatique Simplifies and Reinvents Grooming for Both Men and Women

StormSister Spatique has teamed up with various independent small business entrepreneurs to design a truly green personal grooming creation that saves time and money for both men and women.

shhh. is a natural plant based skin and hair care product developed on the belief that the healthiest solutions for our skin and hair are those that are pure. shhh. is free of synthetics, preservatives, artificial fragrances and coloring. It doesn’t stop there, all packaging is 100% compostable and recyclable.

Consumers are becoming more conscious of those unpronounceable, synthetic ingredients listed on their beauty and personal care products. What are the longterm effects of those ingredients in our bodies and in our environment? They are left out of shhh. entirely.

“I feel very strongly that the beauty industry is not moving quickly enough to remove controversial ingredien…

Brazilian Blowup

Have you been keeping track of the "Brazilian Blowup"?

Last fall the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics helped break the story of the dangers of hair-straightening products like Brazilian Blowout. Product tests have revealed extremely high levels of formaldehyde, a cancer-causing chemical, in some Brazilian Blowout products (even those labeled "formaldehyde-free"), but the company insists its products are safe.

All the salon workers and clients who've reported acute reactions including nose bleeds, dizziness, rashes and hair loss might beg to differ.

Some federal and state agencies are listening to our concerns, though. This week the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a national hazard alert warning that popular hair straighteners may release formaldehyde (California, Oregon and Connecticut have all already issued warnings).

Canada pulled Brazilian Blowout off the market six months ago (followed by…

Jojoba Oil vs. Cyclopentisiloxane

Excerpt from the latest Greenbody Greenplanetnewsletter.

You can pick up just about any hair, skin or body care product lately andfind the ingredient Cyclopentisiloxane lurking within. Sadly, this common ingredient is not only present in traditional (chemical laden) products, but it's also present in those that claim to be more "natural, organic and toxin free". It is extremely popular as a skin emollient used to smooth and fill in wrinkles and fine lines and now its allure has impressed the hair industry.Cyclopentisiloxane smoothes the hair, just as it does the skin, and imparts the shine and silkiness that is so coveted today. You can find it in your shampoo, conditioner, gels, serums, straighteners, balms and even hairsprays. Cyclopentisiloxane, and it's derivatives, has been flagged for further attention by the Canadian Environmental Protection Agency (CEPA) and the European Union (EU) for it's suspected aquatic toxicity, persistence and bioaccumu…

Mint Condition

Excerpt from American Spa magazine, April edition. By:Lisa Bruckensteinand Jessica Lyons
Discover the magic of mint.
Mint is a talented little herb that walks the line between practical (it gets rid of coffee breath) and decadent (think mint chocolate mousse). It serves as an ideal ingredient in many recipes because its aroma activates the salivary glands in the mouth, as well as the glands that secrete digestive enzymes. Naturopathic doctors praise its ability to soothe stomachs and sore throats, provide headache relief, and open up congested noses and lungs. And most of us need look no further than our medicine cabinet to confirm mint’s oral care benefits. It’s a germicidal and breath freshener that works by preventing bacteria growth in the mouth while also cleaning the tongue and teeth without smelling or tasting medicinal. “Mint is such a familiar aroma, and people love familiarity,” says Marc Zollicoffer, global educator of massage and spa for Aveda. “It makes them fee…

How To Get Your Beauty Sleep

Some great tips AND a little StormSister love.

After putting in yet another busy day, there’s the temptation to just fall into bed, as is. Push yourself to resist that temptation -- for beauty’s sake. Experts and real women weigh in on nighttime beauty secrets to keep your skin looking fresh, clean and young. Cleanse skinIt's so important to cleanse your face in the evening before bed, even if you aren't wearing make-up. "A lot of bacteria and dirt has collected on your face during the day," says Becky Sturm, founder of StormSister Spatique. "That's 12+ hours of stuff sitting on your skin that's then collected in your pillowcase for six to eight hours of sleep over how many days until your pillowcase is replaced. Think about it."Cecilia Wong, founder of Soie Aroma Skin Care Salon in NYC, believes simplicity is the key:Use a cleanser and lukewarm water to wash off the make-up, oil and dirt accumulated on the skin.Exfoliate using a warm wet wash…
