Diversity of Fitness correlation to healthy skin benefits

1.png

 

Did you know that the largest organ for the human body is the skin? Crazy to think about, right? Since the first thing that people see about you is your skin, you do want to make sure that you treat your skin right.  The skin is responsible for many activities with your body, including creation of vitamin D, protecting your body from bacteria, viruses, and in general just protecting your body from light injury. The epidermis, or outside of your skin, is the part of the skin that you see.

Research has shown that being physically fit can correlate to being healthy, which can potentially translate to healthier skin. Also, what you eat on an everyday basis influences how your skin looks – but paired with a good fitness regiment, your skin will love you even more!

Biodegradable Skincare Products and Impact on Environment

3.png

Many types of cosmetics exist in the US that are environmentally sound, biodegradable, and/or non-toxic to the environment. It is generally noted that organic certified products are often biodegradable and non-toxic to the environment. Many new types of facial scrubs are utilizing biodegradable ingredients such as organic coconut oil and organic olive oil as prime ingredients, both of which are biodegradable.  

What does “biodegradable” really mean? The term biodegradable means any materials or ingredients that have the ability to decompose in the environment naturally.  For skincare, there is not a strict legal definition in the US for how biodegradability applies as a “measurement”. So, this can actually be a subjective term! 

A great example is that recently plastic microbeads – small plastic balls for exfoliation in shampoos and body scrubs or soaps – were ruled illegal in the US because of negative environmental impact. Billions of these small beads could be found in the sewer systems and were contaminating water systems as well as the environment. So much so that the US made them illegal in July of 2017. These plastic microbeads were NOT biodegradable and would remain in the environment for potentially hundreds of years.

We advise all of our customers to read the ingredients to find ingredients that are not environmentally friendly or non-biodegradable.  If you want to be “green” and “organic friendly” with your skincare, avoid plastics and try to find more ingredients that are as natural as possible.  For Fivesso soap, as an example, the lye, vegetable oils, essential oils, coffee, and distilled water used are all environmentally biodegradable.

What does Fair Trade mean for coffee?

What does Fair Trade mean for coffee?

Fair Trade is a popular term used lately in coffee production and selling bags of coffee in the United States. Many products can be certified “Fair Trade”, but coffee is one of the standout products that has the popularity of the Fair Trade certification increasing every year. 

What is Fair Trade? Fair Trade USA is the most popular non-profit organization that evaluates brands of coffee and looks at the sourcing of the coffee. There are many strict standards that are followed by Fair Trade USA from looking at environmental sustainability, fair compensation on employees, and promotes businesses that help protect the environment.  Fair Trade means that companies will pay a fair, market price to all workers along the supply chain from the origin of the coffee all the way to when the coffee sits on the store shelf.

Many Fair Trade Organizations require for their stamp of approval that the coffee roaster invest 25% of their premium of the coffee to improving productivity and quality. As of this writing, there are over 1.5 million companies registered with Fair Trade Organizations to certify their products.  Do not confuse “Direct Trade” with “Fair Trade” as these are still two different terms. Direct Trade means to have a direct relationship with a coffee farm or roaster – but it doesn’t mean they adhere to the rigorous Fair Trade rules.

What is organic?!

Our soaps are certified organic with Oregon Tilth. However, since the soaps are made out of lye, they can't be characterized as fully organic. There are many requirements to meet these qualifications and we've carefully gone through this process.
