Why Clean Beauty Matters
Taking care of your hair and scalp is as important as any other part of the body.
Hair care products often come toward the end of the clean beauty journey,
but making the switch is important for a number of reasons.
For starters, conventional hair products contain many toxic chemicals that are harmful to people and the planet, such as sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, phthalates, parabens, and petrochemicals, among other toxic ingredients. These ingredients are associated with health impacts including skin and eye irritation; endocrine disruption; possible carcinogens; and developmental, reproductive, and immune toxicity.
The use of toxic chemicals in hair care products is particularly worrisome because the scalp is super absorbent. In fact, the skin on the scalp and forehead is 4 times more absorbing than the skin on our forearms.
As we age, our hair and scalps require gentler treatment and our skin becomes more sensitive.
So it’s important to use cleaner, non-toxic hair products because these don’t just impact our hair.
Eliminating certain ingredients is the first step to using products that are safer for you and the environment.
Here at Glow Salon – our motto is start small! Find out what products work well for you one at a time.
We are always happy to help educate you on your clean low maintenance journey!
Did you know that the average woman uses 12 personal care products each day? Probably more.
If your products are not clean or organic, think about how many chemicals you could be applying to your skin and hair. This chronic low level exposure could be a health detriment over time.
At Glow Salon, we know you deserve better. To us, beauty shouldn’t have to come at a cost to your health. We are passionate about clean ingredients, and salon products are no exception. We want your hair and skin products to be safe, pure, natural, and—of course—beautiful.
Clean beauty isn’t just a trend—it’s here to stay.
What is Clean Beauty?
At its core, clean beauty is beauty without compromising by putting harsh and toxic ingredients on your skin. It requires being informed about what’s on an ingredient label and choosing hair and skin products that are in line with your standards. The difference between regular beauty products and clean beauty products comes down to the ingredients.
Clean beauty products are free from potentially harmful ingredients such as parabens, petrochemicals, and synthetic fragrances just to name a few. They are made with plant-based ingredients, responsibly sourced, and are humanely tested. Clean beauty is natural, toxin-free beauty, plain and simple.
Clean beauty is better for the environment
Sustainable beauty finds innovative ways to reduce their carbon footprint while protecting the formula inside. And let us tell you, it certainly can be done! With advancing technology, sustainable and clean beauty are on the rise for a reason. Beauty doesn’t need to come at the expense of waste, toxic chemicals, and the harm of animals!
