They recently held their first eco-beauty market where you could sample and shop green cosmetic, skincare and hair care products as well as bring in your old toxic products for safe disposal.
More than 12 companies and retailers participated - some of which I already knew about and loved - Consonant and Green Beaver come to mind as well as a bunch that were new to me and I enjoyed discovering! Proceeds went to support Environmental Denfence's Just Beautiful campaign - which aims to eliminate the toxic ten worst ingredients found in personal care products - for more info check out the website at: www.justbeautiful.ca
Now enjoy some of my new finds from the market:
worldPRODUCT Hair & Body Pomade - 56.7g - $19 - is made of Beeswax which provides hold to the hair and organic Jojoba oil which offers shine. As well, it can also be used for deep reaching relief of severely dried out skin.
