Skin Care that is Clean and Green for Our Planet

by Eve Stahl

We are currently living in an era of people sincerely caring about what they can do to help protect and contribute to the greening of our planet. We are presented with great ideas and food for thought on how we each can contribute to this worthy cause. One area that has a great impact on the health of our planet, yet is not often touted as such, is the skin care and body care products that we use daily.

Awareness of the importance of using non-toxic body care products to protect our personal health has been successfully highlighted by the campaign for safe cosmetics and the environmental working group on their cosmetics database website.

There is growing concern that many of the body care products on the market also have a negative impact on the health of our planet due to the effect that the synthetic chemicals commonly used in their manufacture have on our environment. Many of the ingredients used in commercial body care products are petroleum based synthetically derived chemicals. Those chemicals eventually end up in our streams and rivers from the discharge of wastewater from sewage treatment which does not remove petro-chemical compounds. The good news is that cosmetics that are safe for people are also a healthier choice for our planet.

Green skin care products protect the health of our planet. Garden of Eve produces such green skin care products. Their products are made with natural ingredients free from synthetic chemicals. Their Ingredients are sourced from fair trade and sustainable companies. The company strives to create minimal waste and toxicity by choosing reusable and recyclable packaging materials. They reuse packing materials from all shipments and welcome such materials from local stores that would otherwise send them to land fill. In house and out-sourced printing is on post-consumer waste paper with vegetable base ink. Additionally, their administrative decisions are based on green choices, e.g. using energy star rated equipment. All decisions are made in the interest of minimizing the company’s carbon footprint.

What difference does this translate to for the consumer? Garden of Eve is a green organic hand crafting company producing products that are inspired by a heartfelt desire to produce quality products that are not at all harmful to people and our planet. They go the extra step to ensure the superior quality of each ingredient and the perfection of each finished product. Personal contact with the producer of a product today is only experienced with a small hand crafting company such as Garden of Eve skin care. This interaction creates a personally satisfying experience for both the consumer and the producer resulting in the customers feeling that they are being cared for as individuals.
