Beyond Organic – What to look for in a truly “Green” skin care line

RVB's Holistic Beauty - organic and natural skin care 

As the green movement has gained popularity, the terms behind it seem to have become little more than marketing buzzwords. How can the truly environmentally-concerned spa owner tell what is an authentically eco-friendly line?

No Heavy Metals

Environmental advocacy groups are now lobbying Health Canada to impose stricter regulations on heavy metals in cosmetics. Unfortunately, many cosmetics contain trace amounts of toxic heavy metals such as lead or mercury. Look for cosmetic lines that take extra care to ensure that the heavy metal content is low. For example, RVB cosmetics has developed a revolutionary heavy metal test that ensures heavy metal levels are below 0.0001 ppm – making it safe for the most sensitive skins and our water systems.
