Fresh off the heels of Lilac Festival, we thought this would be the perfect time to launch our inaugural Neal’s Yard Remedies blog post! Days like today make us buzz, with amazing energy around the store and us being able to share our passion for award-winning, ethical organic skincare with Calgary.
Why are we passionate about award-winning, ethical organic skincare? It is well known that what you put on your skin ends up in your body (think: the nicotine patch). Your skin is your body’s largest organ and an active barrier between your body and the environment. Almost every day we are exposed to thousands of new chemicals, the majority of which have never been properly tested for their impact to our health. At Neal’s Yard Remedies, we work hard to minimize your contact with these chemicals.
We are proud to say that we follow the precautionary principle, which means that if there is ever a doubt about the safety of an ingredient, we simply leave it out. This means you will not find any silicone, mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, GMO ingredients or nano technologies in our products. We are proud to say that we do this while creating award-winning products. No compromising the quality of your experience here.
Organic skincare is not only about the ingredients that we do or do not use but equally about minimizing our impact on the planet. Organic farming respects the power of natural processes, ensures animal welfare standards and is safer for the farmers. These are just some of the many reasons why wherever it is possible for us to use an organic ingredient to formulate our products, we do.
Choosing organic is one of the most important choices we can make as a consumer. Every decision counts, whether you decide to eat organic food, purchase organic clothing or use organic skincare.
We would love to hear, why is purchasing organic important to you?
