November 5th-30th, Goodbye Chemicals Event
Bring in any skincare, hair care, or body care product that contains harmful chemicals and preservatives, toss it in our designated trash can and say goodbye! Once you’ve dumped your chemicals, save 20% on our wide selection of holistic and organic products. This promotion includes products such as Eminence Organics, Epicuren, Emani, Miracle Soap, and much more!
The cosmetics, shampoos, lotions and other products we put on our bodies can be just as harmful as anything we put in them. Ingredients found in face washes, sunscreens and more have been linked to everything from hormonal disruptions to cancer, and what’s worse is that they go directly into your bloodstream when applied to the skin or hair. While there are certainly lots of studies with different perspectives on this topic, everyone can agree that using more organic products or—better yet, making your own—is the safest bet for you and the environment.
