A Beauty Compass
~the right direction in all things beauty~
Guys!!! This month has been so great! We have been learning a ton of ways to stay hydrated during these wintry months. But GUESS WHAT!!!!! People are hearing Pileated Woodpeckers, you know those stylish red-mowhawked, bad-asses that like to wake you up during your last 30 minutes in bed! Ok, so what does this have to do with anything other than having a feather color that is very hard to attain? Their beautiful drumming is a tell tale sign of SPRING!!! YES!!!! My personal favorite season! Anyways we will talk more spring in later, but today; a recap of what products we should be using until actual spring is here and even better; some Aveda ingredient info!
Product ingredients are so important this day and age. You are what you put on your skin, right? Well here at True North we are strong believers in this and that is why we carry only AVEDA! If you aren't familiar with Avedas long history keep reading, they are such a wonderful company and we cannot wait to share this with you! For more than 40 years (making them one of the first in this space) Aveda has been paving the way in innovative, naturally derived products! Naturally Derived: We define naturally derived ingredients to be those for which more than 50% of the molecule comes from a plant, non-petroleum mineral, water, or some other natural source. Lets be honest saying a product is "All Natural" means nothing, less than nothing really, anyone can say it!. Where did that product come from? Who made that product? What do the farmers who make the product use to fend off pests, heck...what was the farmers name? Aveda actually seeks out the farmers of our ingredients, they grow amazing relationships (pun intended!) with not only them, but the villages that they live in. Aveda practices sustainable sourcing (basically they develop relationships with villages where ingredients are grown and they give back by, for example, helping find clean water sources! How amazing right!) Another interesting thing about all of the Aveda products is that they are tested for 4 years before they are put on the shelf (and not on animals of course!) How amazing is that? Personally, knowing that the product has already been used for 4 years in addition to using the highest quality ingredients puts me at total ease!
Phew! Info overload I know but just think how happy your hair and skin will be that you put the time and effort into caring for it! So now that we know spring is on its way and Aveda is the best, lets watch this little slide show of all the products we talked about in January! Read along to find out the benefits of using them and the main ingredient that makes them special! Also thanks for reading and remember...Head North!!
