  • Village Green Demo: Evanhealy Skin Care

    by Paula Gallagher | July 29, 2015

    evanhealyVisit Village Green Apothecary this Friday, July 31, from 2:00 to 5:00 pm to learn more about this radically simple skin care line, Evanhealy.

    Evanhealy skin care was founded in 1999 by Evan Healy, a holistic beauty expert who created and developed her line of lovely, healthy products based on years of experience as a holistic aesthetician, and her refusal to use products that contained petrochemicals, exfoliating acids, 'fake' natural, or toxic, synthetic ingredients.

    Evan's products are handmade with 100% natural and organically sourced ingredients and feature labor-intensive, artisan distilled (in copper) hydrosols sourced both locally and globally from small family farms. Organic herbs and flower infusions are sourced from small, family-owned gardens and use wild crafted or organic, and/or sustainable fruit, seed and berry oils, essential oils (not solvent-extracted isolates) and rhythmically infused botanicals.

  • New Skin Care Products at Village Green Apothecary

    by Paula Gallagher | July 27, 2015

    hugo-naturals_valley-greenIt is always exciting to get new lines into the store. Recently we have brought in some lovely skin care products from Hugo Naturals and Valley Green Naturals.

    Hugo Naturals started out from handcrafted soaps that were made with all-natural ingredients and sold at local farmers' markets. They feel that what you put on your body is equally as important as what you put in your body. Made in the USA, their products are free of petrochemicals, animal fats, parabens, silicones, formaldehyde, hydroquinone, phthalates, propylene glycol, and synthetic surfactants. And they are never tested on animals, are gluten free, and made from sustainable sources that are pure and natural.

    Village Green has brought in bar soaps, liquid soaps and lotions, scented with pure essential oils and plant essences that delight the senses, moisturize, and add protection from the environment while feeling as rich and indulgent as spa treatments.

    Valley Green Naturals is a small company out of Northern Virginia that started in a farmhouse kitchen with natural soap recipes using garden- and locally-sourced botanicals and honey. They were a huge hit at local farmers' markets. Read more

  • EWG's Sunscreen Guide for 2015

    by Paula Gallagher | May 20, 2015

    DSC01707Every year the Environmental Working Group (EWG) puts out a sunscreen guide, rating many brands of sunscreens from 0 to 10. This is known as the ingredient hazard score, and reflects known and suspected hazards of ingredients. The safest, most effective products are rated 0 to 2. Products that are rated 3 to 6 have moderate hazardous to health, and from 7 to 10 are considered high hazards to health.

    When it comes to my children, I am particularly careful about sunscreen. I need it to be safe, effective and easy to put on. And although spray sunscreens seem very convenient, they should be avoided, especially for children as they may pose serious inhalation risks, and they make it too easy to apply too little or miss a spot. It is no secret that I am a fan of the Badger brand for my children. I can clearly see where I have missed a spot, and it keeps the fairest of my children from burning.

    So check out where your sunscreen rates, and visit Village Green Apothecary for more safe sunscreens.

    Enjoy the summer!
