Spring has Sprung! What’s new..

Spring has officially sprung here in the Bronx. My lilacs are budding and so are my roses!

Did you know that the ‘Lilac Bush’ (Syringa vulgaris) is the Official bush of New York State.

I would like to give a ‘shout out’ to 2 hardworking and amazing women in the industry:

Marge Clark over at Nature’s Gift (see her blog listed here), has her first published book out.!!
She is an amazing Lady filled with much knowledge.

‘Essential Oils and Aromatics: A Step-by-Step Guide for use in
Massage & Aromatherapy’.

Over at Indie Business Blog, Donna Maria, has been doing these wonderful and informative videos for those in the ‘natural products’ industry. However, I do believe it is a must see for business owners and those just starting out in business. Take a peak at her blog and don’t be afraid to explore as it has tons of valuable information. Oh and what is really cool, if you cannot listen to any of the ‘call in’ shows, you can hear them from the site at your convenience. This is a good thing.! Especially for those of us that have ‘time management’ issues.

HBA Spring Conference & Skin Care Products

Its a frigid day here in the big apple. Yeppers, its still winter and Mother Nature is giving us her Arctic blast for sure. Though the sun is shining bright, the skies are blue not a cloud anywhere.!

The crazy up and down weather .. balmy one day .. frigid the next. My bulbs are already 2 inches high and I really was hoping Spring was around the corner. Well, it is but .. just not yet.

Thought I would share some interesting articles:

* Find Safer Soap, Shampoo, Makeup and More:
Did you know that cosmetics and personal care products aren’t tested by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration before they go on the market? In fact, manufacturers are responsible for testing their own products for safety. Unfortunately this mean sun safe ingredients may be lurking in your favorite soap, shampoo or makeup. http://www.ewg.org/node/26032.

* What NOT to buy:
Major gaps in public health laws allow cosmetics companies to use almost any ingredient they choose in everything from sunscreen and mascara to deodorant and baby shampoo, with no restrictions and no requirement for safety testing. To help you navigate your store’s aisles, Environmental Working Group researchers have scoured thousands of ingredient labels to bring you our top recommendations for what not to buy — products with worrisome or downright dangerous ingredients that don’t belong in your shopping cart or on your skin.

For those interested:
The HBA Spring Conference
Javits Center in Manhattan
March 4 -5, 2008
HBA University SM presents its premier educational symposium, which covers two powerful aspects of the industry: “Achieving Well-Being: The New Paradigm,” and “International Prestige Package & Design”. The dual program, on March 4-5, 2008, will cover high-interest topics that address the growing consumer demand for healthy inner and outer beauty as well as brand marketers’ quest for “Beauty-in-the-Bottle”. http://www.hbaexpo.com/spring-conference.htm

All this brings me to what we do here at SunRose .. the pure and natural way of caring for your skin.
Each season brings different needs, but oh what fun to be able to create your own nurturing and nourishing products for your skin.

Carrier oils are the best way to keep your skin supple, especially the ‘dry flaky winter skin’ that makes us itch. The low temps, low humidity and strong harsh winter winds will deplete the skin of its natural lipid layers which keeps the skin from drying out.

After bath when our skin is still damp is the best time to, as I call it, ‘ oil up’. If you have not ever tried using Carrier oils, i.e.: Apricot Kernel, Sweet Almond, Jojoba (great for hair as well), Rosehip Seed the highest source of Vitamin C, Evening Primrose, etc,
then you should visit our Carrier Oil page: http://sunrosearomatics.com/catalog/carrieroils.asp

Or, try our blended Carrier Oil Professional Formulas: http://sunrosearomatics.com/catalog/shop/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=37&cat=Professional+Formulas

Before we know it .. Spring will be here with the ‘new green’ on the trees and flowers popping up.
Stay cozy and warm,
til next time
