By now a growing number of people are aware that ingredients such as parabens and phthalates should be avoided when choosing skin and body care products. But do we really know why? There’s a company that has been committed to creating efficacious, toxin free products for the last twelve years and they are revolutionizing the beauty and skin care industry. Pangea Organics will undoubtedly one day soon be a common household name.
I became aware of this fantastic line of skin care a year and a half ago and it has completely changed the way I perform facials. Pangea founder, Joshua Scott Onysko, began his company with one bar of soap 13 years ago just before leaving for a backpacking trip around the world. To hear this story of how invested Joshua was in starting a company that empowers and positively inspires the business community is nothing short of amazing. I recommend everyone Googles his bio and gets a taste of why he is so passionate about his mission to help people around the globe support themselves through work that they believe in.
It’s not widely known that 80% of what we put onto our skin is absorbed and processed by our body. Active ingredients such as Dimethicone, Triglycerides, Cetearath-20, Cocamidopropyl Betaine and Propylene Glycol may be effective, but at what price? Joshua has always been committed to producing body and skin care that is packed with organic herbs, plants and fruits that are 30% more full of anti-oxidants than non-organic. 90% of Pangea ingredients are actually anti-oxidants! This is a reassuring fact in a country where the FDA does not require health studies or pre-market testing on ingredients.
The skin care industry had definitely taken notice of Pangea. They currently are the proud winners of over 53 awards for Best Product Performance, Environmental and Social Responsibility and Innovation in Packaging & Design. Equally impressive is Pangea’s stand on sustainability and protecting the planet’s resources. All of their products are bottled in glass which is recyclable, their boxes are origami folding and made of 80% post consumer- FSC certified paper. If Mother Nature could talk she would say “Thanks Pangea!”
If that’s not enough to inspire and impress you, then prepare to be dazzled. Joshua is bringing his Pangea movement to your town! As of now anyone can be a Pangea Beauty Ecologist, host Pangea parties and affect a change in their circle and their community. There are over 250 Pangea Beauty Ecologists in 38 states and that number is growing every day. For anyone in the beauty and wellness industry this is a huge blessing. For Holistic Estheticians life myself, it has been the challenge of my career finding a skin care that is free of harmful chemicals and actually produces results. I’m so happy that Joshua made that bar of soap 13 years ago and I am thrilled to watch the others get on board. This is GOOD!
