Treatment Tuesday!

By Megan Vick

 

Welcome to our new series of posts! Treatment Tuesday is designed to help you coordinate Shorganics products into your very own at-home spa treatment. With the cold winter weather getting worse, it’s important to take care of your skin and ensure it’s properly hydrated.  Using products made with organic ingredients help keep your skin pure and free of pesticide residue and other weird synthetic chemicals.

 

For your body care treatment, you’ll need the oh-so-gentle Lemon Salt Scrub and your choice of either vegan Body Lotion or organic, vegan Body Butter – for the winter, we recommend the Lavender Lemon Body Butter.

 

Glowing Body Treatment

  1. Hop into the shower (actually, step gingerly – no need to get hurt)
  2. Take a 2 fingers and scoop a bit of salt scrub onto your hand.
  3. Massage scrub all over your body – you’ll notice the salt begin to melt
  4. Repeat step 2 and 3 if you need more for your body 🙂
  5. Rinse scrub from your skin (feel free to sing a song while you do this – what’s life without whimsy)
  6. Turn off water (duh) and step out of the shower and pat dry your skin

 

It’s important you pat down your skin with a towel to dry it instead of rubbing it. By rubbing a towel over your skin, you can actually exacerbate dry and flaky skin. Patting allows your skin to absorb the moisture from the water and removing the excess.

 

Follow up your drying immediately with a vegan body lotion or vegan body butter of your choice. If you’re using the Lavender Lemon Body Butter, remember a little goes a long, long way.

 

Enjoy your glowing, rejuvenated skin! Namaste

Product Feature Friday: Moisturizing Joint Cream

By Megan Vick

 

As the weather continues to get cold for most of us, your joints will be worse for the weather. It doesn’t matter if you spend a lot of time inside or outside in the winter, the constant dry air, whether from heat or from a cold wind, will suck the moisture right out of your skin. Most people notice this happening on the hands and wrists first. Our hands are most often exposed to the elements first and our knuckles and wrists will suffer the most. After that, your joints, since they bend and move so frequently (typing, writing, sitting, standing, walking) will take the brunt of the dry air and they can become painful and sometimes the skin can crack!

 

Organic Vegan Moisturizing Cream

Our Moisturizing Joint Cream solves those problems. It’s specifically formulated with heavier oils to moisturize even the driest skin. With Tamanu and Borage oils, your skin will soak up this cream and thank you. Farmers, potters, swimmers, nurses, and teachers all love our Moisturizing Joint Cream, especially in the winter months. The Hemp oil and Tamanu give the cream a beautiful light green color, making it a little extra fun to use. If you like that sort of thing, that is…

 

Try our Moisturizing Joint Cream today and you’ll see what you’ve been missing! As always, it’s made with organic ingredients and Verified Vegan by Vegan Action!

2013: Year in Review

By Megan Vick

 

2013 was a wonderfully good year for Shorganics. We spent many a Saturday at The South Durham Farmers Market and met great people. Matt and I spent many nights developing our plan to take over the world new formulas and testing new products for your enjoyment.

 

New Products this year:

  • Lavender Lemon Body Butter
  • Soap (10 types)
  • Berries & Citrus soy candle/wax melt
  • Lavender Lemon soy candle/wax melt
  • Oakmoss soy candle/wax melt
  • Tulip soy candle/wax melt

 

We also changed some of our packaging to make it prettier, safer, and easier to work with. Even with all that, we are still ready and raring to go in 2014. You’ll see us in more stores in more cities across the United States throughout the year. Want to see Shorganics in your town?

We’ve got more big and exciting news coming soon, so stay tuned! Namaste.

Product Feature: Eucalyptus Tea Tree Soap

By Megan Vick

 

Eucalyptus Tea Tree is probably our favorite soap at Shorganics. It’s hard to pick just one favorite, but if I had to, it would be Eucalyptus Tea Tree. There is something undeniably fresh and tingly about this combination of essential oils that leaves your body and your mind refreshed and feeling clean. Both eucalyptus and tea tree oils were used by Australian military troops in World War II for treatment of minor wounds on the battlefield. Tea tree oil was so highly desired during this time, tea tree farmers and distillers were exempt from the draft!

 

Organic Vegan Soap Eucalyptus Tea Tree

 

The best part about this tingly soap, besides all the organic butters and plant oils, is how the oils don’t overpower you. Both eucalyptus and tea tree can be overpowering individually, but together, in this soap, the scent is pleasant, fresh, and invigorating. Try some today, or check out our 3 pack of soap or 5 pack of soap for an even better value!!

 

Namaste, y’all!

Product Feature Friday: Lavender Lemon Body Butter

By Megan Vick

As we head into the dry months of the year, you’ll certainly want to stock up on Lavender Lemon body butter. It’s super rich and made from pure, organic plant butters and oils. Even though it’s solid, it will melt on contact with your skin – just like real (or vegan) butter!

 

Our beautiful body butter contains no water, giving it a creamier and richer feel than traditional body lotions. It’s great for people who spend a lot of time in the sun and for those with ultra-dry skin. Many of our beach customers swear by our body butter because it helps keep those summer tans from looking too matte. And yes, gentlemen, if you are spending a lot of time outside, you can benefit from this body butter too. And I promise this: you won’t end up smelling like a girl (unless you really want to). It’s time for men, both indoorsy and outdoorsy, to keep their skin moisturized and hydrated.

 

Just remember, a little body butter goes a long way! Enjoy!

The Truth About Anti-Aging

By Megan Vick

 

Owning a business in the cosmetics industry has been an eye-opening experience. One thing that is so prevalent in the industry is the phrase “anti-aging.”  It’s almost a guarantee that you’ve heard it, seen it, or read it on packaging, but that phrase is a misnomer.  You might even use these products, but they are not anti-aging products. This is because anti-aging products don’t exist!

 

No one is immune to aging. No one can reverse the signs or effects – no matter what those commercials say. Here’s the truth: The only thing you should look for in a cosmetic product as you get older is the phrase, “reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.” That’s the truth about anti-aging.

 

We are all getting older everyday and the best thing you can is take care of yourself by eating well, exercising, and protecting your skin from the sun’s damaging rays.

Product Feature: Sweet Mint Lip Scrub

By Megan Vick

 

Today, we’re featuring our beloved Sweet Mint Lip Scrub. Now, this little jar of joy doesn’t get a lot of attention at festivals, or at The South Durham Farmers Market, but when our customers find it, it’s like finding a long-lost love.

 

Organic Vegan Sugar Lip Scrub

 

 

Packaged in an adorable little jar (perfect for cars, purses, gym bags, desks – anywhere really), this lip scrub makes exfoliating your lips fun. Using 100% organic, vegan, and fairly traded sugar, all you have to do is take a little pinch of it, massage it onto and into  your lips, and lick off the sugar! It’s that easy! We also use organic peppermint and spearmint essential oils to give you a little kick in your kisser. After you’ve licked that excess sugar, your lips will be silky soft. For an even better result, follow up with any of our delightful lip balms!

 

 

 

The lip scrub will also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines on and around the lips. No, it won’t get rid of those pesky wrinkles or laugh lines, but it will help to freshen your lips, giving them a plump, juicy, and kissable pucker. It’s recommended that you incorporate lip exfoliation at least once per week, but you can certainly do it daily! Now, go over to our website and pick up some Sweet Mint Lip Scrub!

 

 

Namaste y’all!
