I STOPPED PUTTING TOXIC CHEMICALS ON MY SKIN, HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED

 

Just say no to propylparabens.

 

Michelle_Persad_Portrait-3

Take a look in your medicine cabinet, and think about it—can you name a single ingredient in any of the products you use every day? It turns out that the average woman puts 515 synthetic chemicals on her skin every day, without even knowing.

A little over a month ago I spoke with beauty activist Jessica Assaf about the lack of transparency in the beauty industry. She told me a few upsetting facts, among them that the FDA doesn’t require any pre-market testing or approval before beauty products hit shelves. She also explained how the European Union has banned over 1,300 chemicals found in cosmetics, as scientific studies suggest that they could be linked to cancer, reproductive harm and neurotoxicity. However, the FDA has only banned eight and restricted three.

It got me thinking seriously about the products that I put on my body every day. So I decided to do a complete overhaul of my cosmetics and only use products that contain non-toxic ingredients that I can pronounce.

Organic Spa Magazine – Best Natural Deodorants

It’s a tall order. We want our deodorant to keep us smelling fresh, but most traditional formulations contain aluminum-based compounds, which block the sweat glands. Some studies have linked aluminum, as well as other common ingredients like parabens, triclosan and phthalates, to hormone disruption and even breast cancer. read more...

There was a time when the only scent that wafted through NewBeauty’s hallways was the occasional burnt microwave popcorn smell. But ever since Editor-in-Chief Yolanda Yoh discovered a brand called Ambre Blends at a beauty industry trade show, their organic fragrance oils can be detected throughout the office.

It wasn’t long after Yolanda started wearing Ambre Essence that Managing Editor Liz Ritter took notice and began rolling on Invoke Essence almost every morning. When Senior Online Editor Marci Robin realized her office smelled better every time Liz came by, she starting using Solace Essence.

All three scents are subtle variations of an almost indescribably warm, clean, sensual base oil, which vary further with each wearer’s body chemistry. The addictive aromas become almost undetectable to the person wearing them, but those around her (or him—they’re unisex) are gently aware of a soft, sexy scent.

And once someone smells one of the essences on a friend or coworker, it’s only a matter of time before she tries them herself.

After Marci, Marketing Manager Erin Foy got on the Ambre Blends bandwagon, followed by Receptionist Nicole Battaglini, and Copy Chief Chelsea Greenwood.

No one’s bothered by the popularity, because it smells a little different—and totally lovely—on each person.

What’s that smell?
Leslie Bailey

Is it just me, or do all great things seem to come from basements? The vacuum cleaner was invented in a basement, and who could forget the sexy moves from “Dirty Dancing?” The kids were all doing them in the basements back home.

Cue the latest life-changing concoction, Ambre Blends. Ambre (pronounced Amber) Blends is a line of natural fragrance and beauty products that has taken the city by scented storm and risen to national recognition.

It’s hard to go anywhere in Indianapolis without getting a whiff, which Ambre Blends owner and creator Ambre Ashley-Crockett says she really enjoys.

“I can walk into a restaurant and say to Adam (her husband), ‘someone in here is wearing Ambre Blends,'” she said, smiling proudly. <br />Ashley-Crockett started the Ambre Blends line with one scent, Ambre Essence, which she used on her massage-therapy clients. Her interest in aromatherapy began in 1997 with an apprenticeship with an herbalist in Colorado.

Today, there are more than 12 products in the line, all based around three scents: Ambre Essence, Invoke Essence and Solace Essence. A new scent will be released in April.

The scents have been described as comforting and clean, sexy and sensual. Many wearers (which 8include teenagers to women in their 90s, Ashley-Crockett says), claim the products have a stimulating quality. Ambre oil, the common ingredient in the unisex scents, is said to have both medical and aphrodisiac qualities.

Wearing a sample of Solace, I wonder if it isn’t true. People stopped me on the street to ask what I was wearing – even though I no longer smelled it on my own body. Ashley-Crockett explained that as with any natural fragrance, your sense of smell becomes accustomed to it. And the longer you keep it the better. “It’s like a fine wine, they get stronger with age,” she said.

Since 2009, everything in the Ambre Blends line has been made in the 3,000-square-foot Broad Ripple facility except for soy candles, which are made by local artisan Meggan Delong. Before then, Ashley-Crockett said she and part-owner Stephanie Harris and production manager Rebecca Fox were busting at the seams in 300 square feet of basement.

Today, Ambre Blends is available at 44 locations in Indiana and about 170 locations in the United States and Canada. So call it clean, call it sensual – or just call it a success.

Sweet and Healthy Fragrance
I’ve always been aware of those things that I put on and in my body, but even more so now that I’m growing a little bun in the oven.

Which is why, though I love the romantic thought and smell of perfumes, I steer clear of nearly 100% of the perfumes sold in any traditional beauty or department store.

Thankfully, there are makers of beautifully smelling and wonderfully healthy natural “perfumes”.

AMBRE BLENDS

This was one of the first all-natural, essential oil perfumes I tried because the company is local to me.  And though it initially only launched regionally, Ambre Blends quickly rose to national acclaim.
