• 5 Skincare Ingredients to Avoid: Paraphenylenediamine, silicone-derived emollients and parabens … Oh MY!

    Ingredients to AVOId like the wicked witch herself!

    Cheating your skin out of using the good, organic stuff has serious consequences. The list of health issues linked to common skincare chemicals goes a little like this: cancer, skin allergies, infertility, birth defects, reproductive problems, and learning disabilities.

    That may seem absurd, but so is today’s world. The further we get from the more natural lifestyle of our great grandparents, the more crap and crud we have to deal with. Yep, it sucks.

    But it’s not too late to turn things around for you and yours. Paying attention to the products you’re using means your skin doesn’t have to absorb all the evil chemicals that can literally kill you.

    Here are just five ingredients you should steer clear from the next time you shop for skincare. You won’t find any of these guys in the products at Organaca, by the way.

    1. Paraphenylenediamine

    This stuff is often found in hair dye and dark-colored cosmetics, among other things, but it doesn’t just blacken your hair. Since it’s been associated with rhabdomyolysis, renal failure, angioneurotic edema, and respiratory failure, we’d say it also blackens your insides. Don’t go there.

    2. Silicone-derived emollients

    You can recognize silicone-derived emollients by looking for names like cyclomethicone and dimethicone, which are found in many hair and beauty products. Their occlusive qualities mean that although they coat the hair to make it glossy and fill in skin wrinkles, they also seal in impurities and interfere with the skin’s ability to breathe already. That can cause skin irritation and, worse, promote tumors in the liver and lymph nodes. Stay far, far away, OK?

    3. Parabens

    Parabens, like methyl and ethyl, are used as preservatives in deodorants and skin care products — and they aren’t always labeled. So when it comes to smelling good, stick with organic products to ensure you don’t wind up with a breast cancer tumor full of parabens, because that’s where they’ve been found — seriously.

    4. Propylene glycol

    You can find this on the label of skin-conditioning products, like moisturizers and conditioners. But even with as little as two percent of propylene glycol in a product, it flares its ugly head and acts as an irritant. This chemical monster has been associated with causing hives and dermatitis.

    5. Phthalates

    Hair spray? More like, ‘scare spray.’ Good luck in finding an over-the-counter, everyday, traditional product that doesn’t contain this group of chemicals used to increase the flexibility of and softness of plastics. From nail polish to lotions to hair spray, you  can bet your bottom dolla that within those, you’ll find a trace of these chemicals, which are known to be linked to an increased risk of breast cancer and reproductive birth defects in males and females. Phthalates are also not often labeled, since it’s added to fragrances, so be sure to stay natural when you buy deodorants, perfumes, moisturizers, and hair sprays.

    Whatever you do, remember that just because it’s FDA-approved, that doesn’t mean it’s good for you!

    FDA Approved isn;t always a good thing people!

    If the FDA gave a flying fig about your health, cigarettes would be illegal. So start reading labels the same way you do when buying foods — Trust us, your body will thank you!

  • 5 Post-Halloween Masks You’ll be Needing this Week

    Chances are, you spent last weekend either painting your face shades of gray, green, and red or scrubbing all that gook back off. That’s cool, but now you need a different kind of mask to refresh your skin and remind your face that you don’t totally hate it.

    face mask

     

    Despite the fun of having witch face, zombie eyes, or Joker lips, it’s no picnic for your skin. But it’s not too late to be kind again, and with a different kind of mask than the one you spent all Saturday conjuring up. Here are 5 post-Halloween masks that should get your face feeling healthy again in no time. And you don’t have to do all five — choose one, and have fun!

    You know how your skin looks super blotchy after you’ve abused it with a long weekend of partying and applying face paint? Well this stuff evens you out without toxic bleaching and will have you looking radiant and feeling nourished (because you are). It’ll hydrate your skin, and it’s particularly designed for those rosacea, hyperpigmentation, red spots and redness. This rich, lux masque is meant to be used twice a week.

     

    After caking layers of goo on your face, it could use something to make you feel lighter than ever. This mask uses grape stem cells and resveratrol to boost cell regeneration, while botanicals reduce and prevent signs of aging. Best of all, the lightweight texture will leave you feeling like you never mistreated your skin in the first place.

     

    This one isn’t just for special occasions — it’s made to be gentle enough for everyday use on both your face and body. A popular staff pick, this One Love mask exfoliates, ridding you of dead skin cells so you can look more alive. It also formulated with sweet pea flour and fresh pineapple enzymes — sounds good enough to eat, right?

     

    Another way to rejuvenate post-Halloween parties is to use a cool facial peel like this one from Suki. It non-abrasively ditches the damaged skin cells, unclogging and detoxing the pores you piled full of makeup just the other day. Say goodbye to blemishes, dullness, inflammation, and regrets and hello to a face full of clarity.

     

    You’d think you were making a cozy cup of tea, but no, this hibiscus mask just has you mixing up the ingredients to a fresh face. It’s already made of hibiscus, French green clay, and lavender, but you’ll be combining that at home with a teaspoon of water, yoghurt, or honey. Not only does it smell good, but you’ll look really cool wearing it. Seriously, this is the cliched mask meant for slumber parties with trashy magazines, ice cream, and gossip. You can come clean with your girlfriends about what you got into on Halloween while also making your face, you know, come clean.

    Relax and get you Face Mask on! Relax and put your healing face mask on!
  • 5 Cold Weather Warnings: How to Keep from Cracking

    [or How to Say No to Crack]

    Just Say No to Cracked Skin

    As the air gets cooler, you’re probably only thinking good thoughts: pumpkin-flavored everything, autumn leaves, and the absence of bugs — well, maybe not all of them but at least you can say goodbye to bastard mosquitoes. After all, they only want to leave your skin looking like an incurable disease. Good riddance to those guys, for real.

    But for every reason to raise a glass of pumpkin ale, there’s another reason to beware, like the effects cold weather can have on your skin. Cracked lips are grossly unkissable, and no one wants to feel your rough, flaky feet rubbing up against them in the middle of the night — maybe appropriate for freaking someone out on Halloween, but otherwise? Nope, nope, nope.

    So here are a few ways you can change up your routine this season so that you can go back to thinking about things like spiked apple cider and pumpkin pancakes. Mmmm. Pancakes.

    Pan-Yeah!

    1
    New Moisturizer
    While a moisturizer may already be a part of your regular routine, you’re dealing with different elements now, OK? Water-based moisturizers may have served you just fine when you needed that extra hydration for all those margaritas in the sun you sucked down last summer, but your body needs a different treatment this time of year. One to Try: One Love Skin Savior Waterless Multi-Balm: This super moisturizer is made of pure, cold-pressed plant oils, rich mango butter, and three super-critical extracts and promises to be kind to your face.

    2
    Body Oil
    Better yet, add a body oil to your routine to help say no to crack before it takes over! A good body oil not only sounds kind of kinky, it’s also intensely moisturizing, hydrating, and absorbent, leaving you with skin that glows.
    One to Try: 80 Acres of McEvoy Ranch Verde Body Oil: This lightweight blend is made of olive, jojoba, sweet almond oils, and botanical extracts, making it perfect for a full-body treatment you should try first thing in the morning.

    3
    Body Lotion
    If a no-nonsense routine is better for your busy body, try something that kills all the birds with just the one stone. Maintain all-over moisture balance with something that’s designed to do you good from head to toe, like an organic body milk.
    One to Try: Dr. Hauschka Quince Hydrating Body Milk: Using quince seed, blackthorn, and sage extracts, this hydrating body milk prevents moisture loss and stabilizes your skin year round.

    4
    Hands, Feet, and More
    The thirstiest parts of you body during cold-weather season are arguably the hands, feet, elbows, and knees. Don’t be that girl or guy whose feet are more startling than smooth. Apply some therapy to those knees, please!
    One to Try: Intelligent Nutrients Destress Express Dry Skin Therapy: This formula blends organic butters to give you skin that’s smooth like buttah.

    5
    Humidifier
    Baby it’s cold outside, but those cozy indoor quarters can also take a toll on your skin. A big reason why your skin gets all bent out of shape during the winter is because of all that hot air that’s keeping you warm inside. To combat that without freezing your assets off, try getting a humidifier that’ll get more moisture in the air and help prevent your skin from drying out. If you have a big house, consider placing several throughout.
    One to try: Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier: This guy gives off 95 percent bacteria-free warm moisture that not only protects your skin but also helps relieve cough and congestion.

  • Breakups and Breakouts

    A friend of mine recently went through a pretty dramatic breakup. And by pretty dramatic, I mean there was cheating. And by cheating, I mean he was sleeping with the city. But that’s neither here nor there.

    While her heart and head were left to make sense of it all, her body had a different way of dealing. As if she really needed more on her plate, her formerly healthy skin turned against her and left my beautiful friend feeling inadequate and worse for wear.

    Not only does a bad breakup affect your ability to do a number of things — like 1. get out of bed and 2. not drink wine for breakfast — it also does a number on your nerves, stomach, and face. And while you may not be able to control some things in life, you can certainly make strides to control the health of your skin.

    Finding a good nightly regimen and sticking with it is one way to combat the ol’ breakup breakout. The key to getting your glow back is to go natural and stay consistent. Because, like my mother told me, the best revenge is always, always a better life.

    Here are a few suggestions on what you can do to save face despite the drama:

    • Facial Cleanser: No matter how tired you are, you gotta wash your face. Use a gentle, organic soap that’s also strong enough to get rid of all the nasties. Rinse, repeat, and dry. Make sure you use a product that will be kinder to your skin type than that jerk was to your heart.

    One to try: Dr. Hauschka Soothing Cleansing Milk: This guy here uses Bentonite clay and fermented grain extract to clear out dirt, makeup, and oil while anthyllis extract nourishes, tones, and soothes.

    • Night Cream: Nurture your skin every night with an organic night cream that’ll make you feel like the kind of person who can take care of their own damn self. It also helps reduce discoloration, hyperpigmentation, post-acne spots, and dark spots. By the time you begin to see the difference — four to six weeks — you may even have your appetite back. Goals.

    One to try: Kahina Night Cream: This stuff is serious grown-up stuff, guys, and falling asleep cloaked in a cream that smells of the lilies and Japanese wakame seaweed it’s made from will assure you everything’s gonna be just fine.

    • Eye Gel: Whether your eyes are puffy from crying or your dark circles are due to lack of sleep, a good eye gel will set you straight so you can grieve as you wish and still look lovely. Firming the skin around your eyes, eye gels are excellent combatants against fatigued, tired, and run-down skin.

    One to try: Skin Owl Eye Gel Aloe + Cucumber: This super lightweight miracle worker uses hyaluronic acid, periwinkle, and licorice to transform translucent skin into a thing of radiant resilience. 

    • Night Conditioner: While this isn’t something you have to worry about 365 days a year, it’s an excellent addition to the life of your skin every few months. Begin now, use for 28 days, and the next time you have to break it out, your breakup will be a distant memory.

    One to try: Dr. Hauschka Renewing Night Conditioner: This 28-day regime uses oil-free ampules to encourage proper hydration and revitalize pale and lifeless mature skin. Condition once per decade of life: So, if you’re 30, use three times a year. If you’re 40, use four times every year, and so forth.

    • Night Serum: The job of night serums is to protect your skin from environmental stress and accelerated aging — read: helps you stay young despite life’s bull.

    One to try:  Sevani Advanced Omega Night Repair Serum: This serum is packed with vitamin C, A, CoQ10, and Kukui oil to fight the bad stuff, while rosewood, sea buckthorn, and neroli essential oils help hydrate and regenerate so you can get your glow back!

    Get Your Glow Back! Get Your Glow Back!

    My basic daily skincare regime in the morning is Dr. Haushka 3 step: Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize.

    • CLEANSE: Hauschka’s Milk Cleanser is velvety smooth going on and great for the most sensitive skins, it doubles as a make up remover. You only need one or two pumps and it lasts around 6 months. 
    • TONE: The Clarifying Toner tones, balances pH, and calms skin- it contains Calendula, Wound Wort, Horse Chestnut, Echinacea, Daisy, and Witch Hazel- it is powerful and light all at once.  A few spritzes is super refreshing and the skin ADORES it.
    • MOISTURIZE: Hauschka has many great moisturizers for all skin types. I switch between the Rose Day Cream and the super effective Melissa Day Cream. I LOVE the Melissa Day Cream! The scent alone is so uplifting it is impossible to be in a bad mood when you apply it to your face. YUM. It contains sunflower, apricot, and jojoba oils, Melissa (Lemon Balm), Carrot, Daisy, among other pure delicious plant ingredients.

    BONUS MASK- 1-2xs a week I mix the Hydrating Mask in with the Melissa Day Cream. It is soothing and quenches thirsty skin with Almond, Avocado, Olive oil, Shea Butter and Beeswax.

  • 5 Reasons to Use Organic Skincare & Makeup

     

    Dr. Hauschka Organic Skin Care

    For most women, makeup isn’t a mask: it’s an essential part of everyday life, something that beautifies the face as well as the general attitude. From ladies who love to get artsy with eye makeup to those who simply need some lip gloss and mascara to face the day, makeup isn’t something most are willing to give up. But as more natural beauty products hit the market, women are left wondering what’s so dangerous about their conventional beauty products. Should they should stop wearing makeup or switch to something more natural? Well, no, you don’t have to stop wearing makeup at all. In fact, we’ve come up with five reasons why you should use organic skincare and beauty products, along with five natural items you may not know about.

    1. Eco-smart
    Beauty products that you’re probably used to rely on a long list of chemicals and petroleum-based ingredients. Due to the extensive mining required to produce some of the harsh substances in makeup —like aluminum and petroleum — there is a profound effect on the areas with such resources. Acres of land and essential wildlife in places Amazon Rainforest, for example, are destroyed for the sake of many common personal care products — like antiperspirants.

    One to try: Schmidt’s Ylang-Ylang + Calendula Deodorant

    Schmidt's Deodorant Ylang-Ylang

     

    2. Nutrients aplenty
    While the general rule for eating whole foods is, If you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it, the same can apply to beauty products. They also say, if you can’t eat it, don’t use it on your body! Instead, go for products with nutrients like cocoa butter and nutrient-rich oils.

    One to try: 80 Acres of McEvoy Ranch Olive Oil Lip Balm.80 Acres Verde Lip Balm

     

    3. Chemical free = A healthy body
    Products that use harsh chemicals can be irritable on your skin or cause allergic reactions, but worse than that, they can poison your endocrine system. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, two of the most common substances in conventional makeup — parabens and phthalates — have been linked to cancer as well as type-II diabetes. But go natural, and you’ll look good AND feel good because you’re healthy.

    4. Natural is gentler
    Of course, once you’re rid of products with no harsh chemicals, you’re naturally already being kinder to your skin. But did you know that an organic product means your skin should be more naturally moisturized and not looking so dry, dull, and cracked?

    One to try: Dr. Hauschka Rouge Powder

    Dr Hauschka Rouge Powder

     

    5. Helps prevent premature aging
    Many natural skincare products contain some level of sun protection. Since your face is so vulnerable to UV-related aging, it’s important to choose a beauty product with minerals and vitamins that can enrich and protect your skin, leaving you with a glow instead of a wrinkle.

    One to try: 100% Pure Healthy Flawless Skin Foundation Powder w/ SPF20

  • Here Comes the Sun: Sun Protection End-of-Summer Tips

    Late summer early fall sun protection

    At the end of the season, it’s easy to throw caution to the wind while trying to soak in the last days and rays of the summer sun. But as you’re holding onto that summer spirit, even into the early Fall, you could be damaging your skin. Don’t be fooled: there’s still reason to take precautions against possible sun damage.

    Here’s four sun protection tips you should consider for summer’s last hurrah.


    1. Non-mineral sunscreens: When using a preventative sun care product, it’s important to know the difference between mineral and non-mineral products. Classic/traditional/non-mineral sunscreens use chemical-active ingredients that absorb and dissipate UVA and UVB rays. These should be applied half an hour before you park yourself on the beach — it needs time to soak into your skin before the sun gets there first. One to try: This Coola Full Body cream is a perfect example of a great non-mineral sunscreen.

    2. Mineral sunscreens: While classic sunscreens dissipate rays, mineral suncare products use mineral-active ingredients like Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide to scatter then reflect UVA and UVB rays. That means that they can stop UVA rays before they even reach the skin rather than absorbing then filtering the rays independently. Another cool thing about mineral sunscreens is that they go into effect immediately upon application. So if you’re forget all about lathering on your lotion until you’ve been in the pool for ten minutes, you can still do some major damage control/protection before it’s too late. One to try: This Coola Mineral Baby Organic SPF 50 is all-natural, organic, hypoallergenic, and created specifically to give safe protection to kids six months old or older.

    3. The right regime: Don’t forget to protect yourself all over. That means paying attention to your face, lips, as well as your full body. There are products made to specifically care for particular parts, like your tender lips. One to try: This Coola travel kit will have you prepared for it all.

    4. Repairing is caring: Even if you can’t feel the burn, like in the cooler days of early Fall, your skin still needs some TLC after a long day in the sun. Using products with natural ingredients — like rose water A and rye seed extract A —  is the best way to repair and care for your skin.  One to try: Remember when we said you should pay attention to all of your body? This Coola Environmental Repair Plus Calm Glow Eye Gel makes sure your eyes are in good shape with its lightweight and oil-free gel that keeps moisture in and pollutants out.


    HELP! What if I have sun damaged skin?

    We all forget our sunscreen once in a while. What then? No worries, you can reverse sun spot damage the natural way by using one of our skin brighteners. Using natural botanicals and vitamins and avoiding non-synthetic skin bleachers, these brighteners can reverse and correct redness and post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation from sun exposure.  Here are three of our favorites:

    Suki Targeted Bio-Brightening Face Serum

  • Organaca Presents Natural Teen Beauty Tips - Chemicals to Avoid

    Amelia and Claira discuss toxic chemicals to avoid

    In this weeks video installment of "Natural Teen Beauty" our two teen vloggers discover some of the toxic chemicals found in every day beauty products. Look under your sink or in your medicine cabinet and see what fun toxins you can come up with. In small doses these toxins seem benign but when they build up in our body and in our environment they can do some real damage.

    Chemicals to avoid in your Shampoo...

    Parabens - These nasty little guys can do a lot of harm but are found in almost all non organic/natural shampoos and conditioners. They are a preservative but can cause elevated levels of estrogen, which causes breast cancer. Here is a great article from the Breast Cancer fund.

    Sulfates (sodium lauryl sulfate) -  A skin irritant sounds like a great thing to put on your head...no? This little guy can not only damage your skin and eyes but has ironically been linked to hair loss and thinning. LIVESTRONG.COM had a nice article on that horrible side effect.

    Our shampoo brands don't use Parabens and Sulfates!
