I wrote recently about the dangers of convetional and OTC (over the counter) hair dyes under the post, 'Your Hair Dye Could Be Killing You'. Since then I've discovered more and more hair care companies who are taking up the challenge to develop botanical alternatives. Most of these vegetable & plant counterparts don't actually infiltrate the hair shaft, they coat it with color resulting in less damage, noticibly more shine and stronger hair - not to mention healthier scalp. But the latest and greatest from Advanced Cosmetic Technologies (ACT) goes even further by using 100% plant based color and a patent pending technique that creates a highly purified end product. The process uses special extraction techniques to physically separate the colors from the plant matter which they then mix with natural mineral salts to make their unique permanent hair color. The molecules of this plant matter are so small that they penetrate the hair shaft naturally and gently, without forcing the hair shaft open through chemical processes. At $29.95 it's hardly a steal, nonetheless it's at least half of what you'd pay to get your hair color done in a salon and you have to ask yourself - at what true cost is that?

The founder of Pravana Natraceuticals, Steve Goddard, is a 30 year veteran of the hair industry and former CEO of Wella. Not content with being a mere hair stylist or business genius, Goddard believes that hairdressing has evolved and transcended the status quo, to encompass what needs to be a holistic approach to hair care that enhances both your inner and outer beauty. Enter Pravana Natraceuticals. A unique fusion of European sophistication, ancient Mayan botanicals and innovative American technology, the entire collection is infused with a proprietary blend of human hair keratin amino acids, silk amino acids, and hydrolyzed wheat protein to strenghten and fortify hair from the inside out. There are still a huge number of conventional hair care brands using sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulphate or sulphate based cleansing agents that are drying to the hair and can strip color.

Like having your cake & eating it too, Shea Terra Bourbon & Vanilla Shea Body Butter is a super rich, uber hyrdating body cream that's akin to indulging in your favorite dessert, without the guilt or calories! Here's the scoop: On the entrancing island of Madagascar grow the richest, most intoxicating vanilla beans in the world. By daybreak vanilla orchids open and by nightfall sigh their last breaths. The choicest beans are impregnated with earthy, warm notes that impart their aroma into this hedonistic blend. Wild-harvested aloe ferox, kigelli and African potato, tone and encourage skin renewal, while 40% organic shea butter delivers extreme moisture and skin repair, penetrating deep beneath the epidermis with rich nutrients. Reduces stretch marks, soothes eczema and sends dry skin running. Besides the fact that I'm hopelessly addicted to this TDF product, the company is amazing. Shea Terra work with local indigenous tribes to sustainably harvest and empower women in theses communities to be self-sufficient, while preserving the continent of Africa. All the fragrance & color comes from the plants & flowers from which they're harvested. In case vanilla isn't your thing, they also have Pink Guava & Pomegranate & Miombo Mango - perfect (& delicious) for summer!

So when FURTHER Hand Soap passed over my desk, I sat up like I'd just seen God. Here's the scoop: Megan, a former event planner for Vogue, meets Marshall a bio-diesel making, reusable shopping bag lover and falls in love. One day Megan walks into their garage to find her grease covered soul mate has accumulated a TON of glycerin, a by-product of the bio-fuel distillation he's been actively engaging in to run their own vehicles, at which point she graciously points out he needs to clean up his act. Given Marshalls mission to find a productive use for everything, he of course was NOT going to throw the glycerin out. The epiphany: To take things one step FURTHER and convert the waste glycerin into a fabulous line of Hand Soap using a signature scent of Bergamot, Olive and exotic grasses. Clean, fresh and sweetly aromatic, the soap ends up in the bathrooms of the very restaurants from which the glycerin originated, creating a perfect, sustainable circle! I love it!! You too can buy their soap at www.furthersoap.com. What a fabulous story and what an inspiration on how to rethink the way we tackle waste.

There was a time when conversations surrounding elasticity, loss of collagen, sagging and lack of tone, were for me like hearing someone speak in a foreign language. Convinced I'd somehow and miraculously been blessed with ever youthful skin, I never paid much attention - until now that is. Whether you're there already or you think this is something that doesn't apply to you, it's never too early or late to start using skincare that addresses these very issues. Now, let it be said I'm a total skeptic (and more than a little jaded) when it comes to product claims, having worked with and tried just about everything. My latest discovery however, more than lives up to its rep and having used it for the last six wks, I can verify that my skin feels noticeably smoother, firmer and more radiant. Sustainable Youth Skincare is comprised of three products in the collection, Revitalizing Serum, Elasticity Cream, and supplement capsules. Each product contains Alasta™, a 100% organic, bioactive ingredient derived from the aloe plant, which in clinical studies has shown to reduce inflammation, and improve skin elasticity and firmness. Lest you think that the product claims are a little grandiose and there's no way a 99% organic & natural product could possibly have the same amazing effects as its chemically engineered counterparts, get this... the clinical studies prove conclusively that you'll see improvement of 61% in only 12 weeks of use when taken orally, and 72% in only 8 weeks of use when used topically.

I'm a self-confessed organic glamazon (in fact, that's my blogging alias) and I looooove all things beauty, but I'm also a trained makeup artist who has used practically every cosmetic brand you can think of over the years, organic & not. As a discerning makeup user I'm extremely picky about quality, efficacy and application, so it was with a wary kind of excitement that I tried the new Organic Glam makeup collection from The Organic Pharmacy. The glossy black packaging is indeed glam (though I can't help be a little disappointed that it isn't more environmentally sensitive), and the makeup... let's just say 'impressive' is a word that springs to mind. The Luminous Antioxidant Foundation has a beautiful, light creamy texture that glides on giving good coverage but not so much that your skin feels 'made-up' and the finish it leaves is not matte, and not dewy either - in fact, it's kind of perfect. The Organic Glam Creamy Lipsticks are super creamy delivering good color pigment; the eyeshadows are luminous, shimmery minerals packaged in containers that have a soft sponge wand inside for controlled application (as opposed to the standard loose pots and brushes that leave your bathroom splattered with powder)... and the entire collection is made from organic and natural ingredients using mineral colors with no nasty preservatives. The price tag is pretty hefty in the US with the foundation costing around $60 for example, but some would argue perfection is worth it.

I'm one of those label-reading, ingredient poring, information seeking obsessives who needs to know everything there is to know before making a purchase, whether it's my beauty products or what I eat. How could I have known that obsession would reach a whole new level of pedantic a while back when I became pregnant with twin boys, but it did with a vengeance! Based on a medley of nine natural ingredients chosen for their gentle effectiveness and scented with the fresh smell of pure mint (which anyone who has been pregnant with that canine sense of smell you develop will tell you does help ease the nausea - or at the very least doesn't add to it!), this Nine Naturals line is a godsend for anyone who is pregnant. Natural plant oils work to hydrate and soften hair, wheat proteins create vibrance and shine, the mint also fights fatigue on sleepy mornings, and no crazy chemicals! Simple, smart and only the best organic & natural ingredients so you don't have to worry about you, or that little bundle growing inside you.

Walgreens are pitching a more beautiful green future with the introduction of The Face Shop, number one selling cosmetic brand in Korea. Believing that nature is the best source of beauty, their products are formulated with natural extracts and are completely free of harmful chemicals. Priced as affordable without sacrificing quality, I haven't personally tried the products but the line includes makeup, skincare etc... I also haven't been able to verify ingredients from their website, but I love that they're making the effort so that's why I bring them up. Just make sure if you swing by to check out the line, that you read the labels.

Never mind all the lewd references to 'junk in your trunk' or visions of trash, Man Junk is actually a man's (and womans), marvel. Designed by men for men, this latest entry into the organic and natural personal hygiene category was developed to address their specific needs. Key to the effectiveness is the combination of Totarol, a potent anti-bacterial, and Malaleuca Tree Extract with antiseptic and anti-fungal action. Add to that some of nature's most emollient and healing organic oils, the two years and more than 30 formulas it took to get to this point, and you can safely declare that Man Junk might indeed be a treasure!
