Marrying the Metaphysical with Green Beauty
How do you marry the metaphysical with green beauty? The first step requires a deeper understanding of what we mean when we say, “metaphysical.” Generally speaking, metaphysics is a type of philosophy that utilizes broad concepts that help elucidate our understanding of reality. When it comes to marrying the metaphysical with the concept of “green beauty,” the end result is an innovative solution that helps to reinvent the way we used to do things.
Before we dive in further, what exactly IS green beauty?
"Going green” is the practice of making lifestyle choices that are more environmentally conscious and ecologically responsible. But how does one become environmentally friendly (and ecologically responsible) when it comes to hair care? How can we treat the environment as kindly as we do ourselves? How can we create a culture of sustainable beauty in today’s society?
It’s questions like these that help to marry the metaphysical with green beauty and ultimately, our partnership with Green Circle Salons. They are the leading source in cultivating a community of like-minded individuals who want to create a more eco-friendly solution when it comes to salon waste. At its core, green beauty encompasses products that are created with natural ingredients, all the while being packaged in an eco-friendly manner to help minimize our environmental impact. The decision to reuse, recycle and develop ecologically friendly packaging solutions is how we marry the metaphysical with green beauty. It all starts with analyzing our current reality and thinking of ways to make it better for the environment.
According to a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, approximately 75% of U.S. adults believe that we should do whatever it takes to protect the environment. This highlights a growing concern for (and desire to) keep the environment in the forefront of our decision making. Many things that ordinarily would be considered waste - paper, plastic, even human hair - can be repurposed to leave a healthier impact on the environment. The human hair we repurpose helps clean up oil spills in the ocean!
At Artemis Salon, we believe in an eco-conscious beauty regime that connects the individual and the environment.
We believe that making the conscious choice to utilize green beauty products helps bridge a connection between the mind, body and spirit. When you put good into the world, good is returned back to you.
This is why we are so proud to use products that are gentle enough to use on cancer patients, pregnant women and individuals who are prone to eczema, psoriasis or other types of allergies. Our products - exclusively Oway and Original Mineral - use only natural ingredients like lavender, rosemary and native plants. When you know what your products are made of, you can feel better about putting them on your body. And when you know how they are sourced and how they can give back to the environment, you feel even better.
We pride ourselves on being an education hub for other stylists who are interested in green chemistry and how they can go about getting started. We are continually educating ourselves on the latest green beauty products and trends. It is our hope and desire to share this knowledge with the world in an effort to cultivate a community who can continue forward with this ecologically-friendly initiative.
We’d love to introduce you to our products. Schedule an appointment with us today and connect with the goddess within.
