Eminence Organic Skin Care: Now at Citrine Salon

We can barely contain our excitement right now- the hugely popular skin care line, Eminence, is coming to Citrine Salon! Founded in Hungary in 1958, Eminence strives to craft the highest quality organic skin and beauty products. The principles that Eminence was founded on align perfectly with ours- those of sustainability and a responsibility to the Earth. All Eminence products are USDA and Hungarian Certified Organic, and are "proudly free of parabens, animal by-products, propylene-glycol, sodium lauryl-sulfates, harmful colorants and fragrances, mineral oils, petroleum, and other harsh cosmetic chemicals."

Our aesthetician, Bhavna, will be using exclusive Eminence skin care products for all of her facial and skincare services. She is knowledgeable and up-to-date on the entirety of the line and is our go-to Eminence guru. If you love any of the products Bhavna uses during your visit with her, or already use Eminence products, they will be available for purchase in the salon as well!

If you haven't tried Eminence before, you're in for a treat. Everything is handmade, produced "without any severe heating or hydrogenating processes that can affect the nutritional content and potency of natural ingredients. Vitamins are captured in their all-natural fresh base, offering dramatic results as actual seeds, pulps and peels impart regenerative and healing powers that only nature can produce." Eminence crafts cleansers, toniques, exfoliants, masques, moisturizers, sun care, and lip & eye care that is customized and catered directly to your skin type and needs. Premium ingredients are sourced from around the world, however the majority of them are grown and hand-picked in Hungary and North America.

Eminence is involved in numerous charities and contributes to multiple foundations around the world. We love their commitment to the environment, and look forward to building a relationship with them in the coming years. Eminence is regularly praised and sworn by celebrities, and has received attention and numerous awards from global magazines and networks. Call us if you have any questions about the line, we'd love to hear from you. And as always, call, email, or stop in to schedule a facial with Bhavna.

April is Beauty Sustainability Month!

Citrine was founded on sustainable and eco-friendly principles back in 2009. We love the planet we call home!, and we do everything we can to reduce our impact on the environment. Our location here at East 54 in Chapel Hill is an environmentally-friendly LEED certified development. The salon relies on low-energy lighting and tons of natural sunlight. We follow procedures that involve all earth-friendly cleaning products, maintain a completely paperless booking and transaction system, and recycle goods and waste wherever and whenever we can. We believe that living a green lifestyle does not have to entail going without!

Aside from the larger measures taken to reduce our carbon footprint, we wondered what else we could do to promote an eco-friendly hair regimen and lifestyle. What ways could our staff and clientele take advantage of the perks of sustainable beauty? After all, it is the smaller, more gradual changes in life that have substantial, lasting impacts.

We are a proud carrier of Davines hair and Comfort Zone skincare products. Davines (and Comfort Zone) is an Italian-based hair care brand focusing on customized hair products that are eco-friendly in as many ways possible. The unique packaging Davines has designed is a case in point! Their shampoo and conditioner containers are reusable, and serve multiple purposes other than holding your favorite hair product.

These containers are produced using as little already-recycled plastic as possible! After the product inside is gone, and the container is cleaned, it is food-safe! A popular use for conditioner containers is to store and carry food and snacks.

Our personal favorite use of these empty Davines containers is repurposing them as planters. They serve as the perfect sized planter for smaller seedlings and plants. Our succulents here at the salon have a great home in their repurposed conditioner containers and are thriving!

Not all of us have a green thumb, though. For those that still love the sustainable concept of Davines, we're offering a promotion when you bring in your clean (full size!) shampoo and conditioner containers. We'll refill your product and top it off with a 10% discount. It's just another way to achieve beautiful hair in the most sustainable way possible.

If you love a Davines shampoo and/or conditioner, also consider ordering a liter size of your favorite product. Shopping in bulk greatly reduces the amount of waste created, and you save money! We can order many of our best-selling Davines products in larger sizes, and they're shipped to us immediately.

Often times, it's the small efforts and changes we make in our day-to-day lives that have the biggest impact. Striking a balance between beauty and sustainability can be challenging, but the results improve our lives and the world around us. As we celebrate Beauty Sustainability Month and Earth Day in April, consider what ways you can reduce your impact on the planet and how your health and beauty habits affect yourself and the world we live in.

Stop in this month to check out our Davines line and get inspiration on how you can be sustainably beautiful!

Davines hair products stand head and shoulders above the rest

There seems to be a pretty strong consensus among the group that trying new hair products is the most fun we've had in awhile! For weeks now, we've been sharing, swapping, and raving about the Davines hair products and soon, we'll be able to share that excitement with you. There are a TON of really fabulous hair products out there. (We know, we've tried a lot of them!) Davines, however, stands out for its amazing products (ask us how much we love their pomade), their cute nicknames (momo, solu, love), and also their commitment to our environment and making as small a footprint as possible.

Over the next few months, we look forward to sharing our passion and love for this amazing Italian hair line. In the meantime, feel free to drop us a line or ask us a question!
