How GREEN is your Cosmetic Bag? The GREEN Team wants to know.....
That is the BIG question - Our cosmetic bag - and what "secrets" are hidden inside. Many of us want to know, and are finding out that most cosmetics that we use aren’t exactly “good” for us, or should I say “green” for us. Organic is a BIG word, Natural and Green are also powerful adjectives when we describe our foods or “food” products. Sorry, boxed or prepared food doesn’t count because it shares in the same combination of chemicals/preservatives that contribute to an unhealthy lifestyle. We should take a closer look at the toxic chemicals that are being used to process cosmetics that are often used on our face, our hair, and our bodies. We should take a look at the bigger picture by reading the packaging and paying more attention to "fine" print. Some examples are hidden inside abbreviated words such as: HFC (high fructose corn syrup) GMO ‘s (genetically modified organisms). These are just some chemicals to look  for and are used by major Big brands. In cosmetic industry, the ingredient labels are a little bit more difficult to decipher. Here are two BIG words to look for: PABA’s “Parabens”, methylparaben, porplyparabens, and Sulfates, just to name a few. If you are worried or confused,…don’t be. As “GREEN” Magazine develops I will be educating readers on these topics and so much more: Without further delay, below is an introduction to the “Green” Team for October. Take a closer look at these small retailers that are making a BIG difference by using natural/organic compounds in beauty for a better and "greener" YOU.

Eye on Beauty Reviews: Mara Kesh Select - Superior Moroccan Oil. "This product fascinated me... maybe because, many lavish essential oils come from this part of the world. I used Superior Moroccan oil on the dry ends of my hair. The oil is super concentrated golden oil. It repaired my hair and turned it into soft spun silk. I got to thinking... if this is what the product can do for my hair, Superior Moroccan oil  will be the next Fountain Of Youth for skincare.  Word out to Salons and Spas -...get your "hands" on this product pronto!" ~  Terry Ruvo

The "Green"Color PayBack$

There is a lot to be said for the color "green." It is a powerful color and word. When I think of green many things come to mind.  Such as, clean,clear, pure, trees, fresh, grass, nature,new, peace and God...yes, that's right. "GOD." Many believe he gave us the universe and all the green that lies beneath our feet.  But we have betrayed the planet and all the "green" in it.  If we want to continue to flourish, we must all invest in "green" to keep growing. It is our job to put it back where it belongs. The "green ideology" starts within ourselves. If we stay on the "righteous" green path, and if we invest in "green" we will become a strong and fruitful planet and "green" will reward us with huge paybacks. Ask yourself today. How will I invest in "green" for tomorrows future?"

My selected poetry from ROBERT FROST

Nothing Gold Can Stay  
by Robert Frost

Nature's first green is gold, 
Her hardest hue to hold. 
Her early leaf's a flower; 
But only so an hour. 
Then leaf subsides to leaf. 
So Eden sank to grief, 
So dawn goes down to day. 
Nothing gold can stay. 


Next EYE on GREEN will feature....more "green" retailers,more reviews, "green" recipes, Bigger and Better GREEN all for you!
