Pinks Boutique Products at Natural Body Cafe

Monday, March 02, 2020

In the holistic, beauty & skin care industry, many ‘natural’ products aren’t as pure as you might expect. Natural Body Café is always striving to find the best products to use in all areas from our cleaning products to treatments such as massages, facials, nails, waxing and pedicures. We are proud to announce the introduction of our new range of eco luxury products from Pinks Boutique. They use a combination of evocative natural fragrances with active rich ingredients; resulting in a luxurious feel and fabulous results on the skin.

PURE

Every product contains 100% active ingredients with little or no water content, so a little goes a long way! Pinks Boutique only use organic ingredients, which are certified by the Soil Association. Attention to detail is vital, ensuring the right quantity of each plant extract and essential oil to deliver a genuine therapeutic benefit – not just to spice up the ingredients list.

SAFE

All Pinks Boutique formulations are free from skin irritants, hormone disrupting chemicals, harmful preservatives, artificial colours and fragrances, and genetically modified or animal-derived ingredients. Every product conforms to European safety regulations.

KIND & ANIMAL FRIENDLY

All ingredients come from sustainable sources and are fully biodegradable, while packaging is minimised to prevent excessive waste, and only PET plastics and recyclable glass is used. All products or ingredient parts are never tested on animals and are suitable for vegetarians.

MADE IN ENGLAND

Plus all their organic products are 100% blended and formulated in the heart of England.

HERE ARE A FEW THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR AND AVOID WHEN BUYING PRODUCTS TO USE ON YOUR SKIN

Petroleum - paraffinum liqudum, mineral oils, petroleum oils.
These are cheap base products used in nearly every non-organic cleanser, body lotion or moisturiser. By-products of making petrol; they are used because they are cheap, not because they are good for your skin. These chemicals block pores, interfere with the skin's ability to eliminate toxins and they also slow down skin function and cell development, which can result in premature ageing. Oddly, they are used in many non-organic anti-ageing creams.

Polyethylene Glycol (PEG).
This is a potentially carcinogenic petroleum ingredient that can alter and reduce the skin’s natural moisture factor. It can increase the appearance of ageing and leave your skin more vulnerable to bacteria. PEG is used in non-organic cleansers to dissolve oil and grease, and also used in spray-on oven cleaners so definitely one to avoid!

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS).
SLS is used in industrial detergents and surfactants that can pose serious health risks, for example car washes, garage floor cleaners and engine degreasers – it is also found in 90% of non-organic products that foam. Go and check your foam face wash, shampoo or children's bubble bath.
