Organic Beauty Is Easy

Organic Beauty is truly easy!

Many consumers have made the switch to shopping organic produce and foods. We’re paying attention to what goes into our bodies, so why aren’t we paying attention to what we’re putting on our bodies as well? Organic beauty is easy – we stand by this promise. We’ve done the vetting for you by partnering with brands that derive ingredients from natural sources and are free of harmful parabens, sulfates, and artificial scents. These companies pride themselves on creating non-toxic products to elevate the health and appearance of your skin. Backed by proven research and science, these brands instill trust in the fact that your skincare routine is doing right by your body.
But it’s more than just carrying the titles of “organic “ and “natural”; Organic Nation, Intelligent Nutrients, NATULIQUE and NATURIGIN not only care about what they’re putting on our skin, they care about how these products are produced. We work with these companies for their social responsibility and dedication to protecting the environment we live in by reducing their footprint. Sustainable practices and ethically sourced ingredients are deeply ingrained values that are practiced in every step of production; protecting oceans, farmers, pollinators and ultimately our bodies.

#5For5: Sustainable Wineries of the Okanagan

Summer is the season of wine – whether enjoying on the patio with your friends, having a glass on date night, or making a trip of it and visiting a winery on a weekend away. It is said that a glass of red wine a day is good for your heart, but what if the wine you were drinking was already produced in a sustainable winery and made with all natural ingredients? That one glass could become two or three! Or if you’re not much of a red wine aficionado, switch it out for a crisp white or rosé knowing you have a better-for-you option. As a wine lover myself, I wanted to share five Okanagan naturally-farmed sustainable wineries.  Continue reading “#5For5: Sustainable Wineries of the Okanagan”
