VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 18, 2013) - With Earth Day 2013 fast approaching it is time to reflect on the many ways we can play an active part in keeping our planet healthy. Make green thinking a part of everyday life and not just something you engage in once a year. At Éminence every day is Earth Day! By making Éminence your skin care choice you really can green your beauty regime.
Éminence is committed to being the industry leader in organic skin care and also in keeping the planet green. Since its inception in 1958, the company has been using sustainable farming and green practices to create organic products—long before the green movement was hot. Éminence is constantly looking for ways to reduce its carbon footprint, from the harvest and production of products to how they are packaged and, finally, how they reach spa clients. These efforts were rewarded last year when they were named finalists in the sustainability category at the BC Export Awards.
Imagine if your daily skin care regime could contribute to keeping our planet beautiful - with Éminence, you can do just that! In November 2012, Éminence took its commitment to the environment to a whole new level, planting a tree for every product sold! Did you know that one single tree absorbs as much carbon in a year as a car that drives 26,000 miles? By planting trees Éminence is also helping to lower air temperature, stabilize soil and prevent wind and soil erosion, as well as help the fertility of land. With the Forests for the Future initiative Éminence is estimated to plant enough trees to produce over 273,000,000 pounds of oxygen in 2013 alone.
In recent years, Éminence has stepped up the green factor by enlisting wind and solar power energy from the harvesting of products to the head office, using recyclable packaging, vegetable-based inks and post consumer recycled paper for printing. Most Éminence products are concentrated and are more effective when diluted with a little water; each packaged product will give you more applications which means more effective results and less waste! You will not find sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) in Éminence products which is a common ingredient in other facial cleansers. SLS takes many years to biodegrade and can also end up in the ocean harming aquatic wildlife, not to mention its carcinogenic properties that are a known health concern. Think you can't live without retinoids or benzoyl peroxide? Not only can they be harsh on your skin but the way they are produced can be harsh on the planet too. Éminence offers natural alternative solutions to give you the skin care choice that is good for the earth as well as good for the skin.
Éminence relies on Mother Nature's offerings to produce the most effective and natural products on the market. By choosing Éminence as your skin care line you are also helping to save the planet one product and one tree at a time. Choose Éminence for your skin care needs and join the fight against climate change!
