It's Our Birthday! We're 5!

Janis Covey

HappyBirthday.png

As I sit down to write this, I am amazed that it has been 5 years since I started Kosmatology.  I never thought I would be the creator and owner of an organic skin care line and part of the clean beauty revolution, but wouldn’t change a moment of my journey.

When my children were born, I was on a mission to live a clean lifestyle for them and our family.  I researched so much and drove my husband crazy (I still drive my husband crazy) with eco-friendly products and habits such as cloth diapers.  However, my real journey didn’t begin until my youngest, Cameron, developed horrible eczema at 3 months old.  Trips to the pediatrician just ended up with prescriptions for steroid creams and no real explanations.  Here is where I was able to put my years of experience as a compounding pharmacist to work.  After lots of research and experimenting, I developed what ended up being Kosmatology’s first product, the Goody-Goody Grapefruit Lotion bar.  By just trying to treat my daughter’s eczema naturally, I ended up inadvertently creating a company and job I love.

Not only do I get to do something I love every day but also I have met so many amazing people along the way; many that I now consider friends.  I have loved being part of the clean beauty community, enjoyed learning so much along the way and look forward to the next 5 years.

Thank you all for supporting me and letting me do something I love!

HAPPY AND ORGANIC FEET

Francesca Falletta

HELLO LADIES!  I'm here with what will be the first in a series of guest posts in collaboration with Kosmatology.  My name is Francesca of the green beauty blog GREEN GLAM GIRL.  If you have been following since I started my blog you will know that Kosmatology has been one of my all time favorites in green beauty since I first was introduced to the products over a year ago.  In case you don't know why check out my interview with founder Janis Covey. Let's talk about what happens when we go from summer to fall and then winter.  If you live in a climate that has drastic changes in weather like Janis and I do, then you know everything goes to bone DRY.  Especially our feet! Am I right or what?!?!  I feel like we women beat our feet up so bad! Between the shoes we wear (i.e. heels, flip flops, pointed toe shoes, etc), being on our feet all day and everything else.  If you are a mom you can relate to the putting everyone else first and not taking time for "self care".  Guilty as charged!

WHAT TO BRING TO A SALON PEDICURE?

This brings me to the topic of when you are able to take the time and go for professional pedicures to care for those puppies!  Recently I took some time and went for a pedicure and brought all of my own stuff.  Alexa took such good care of me and was so sweet.  She was totally ok with using my products and even asked me about all of them.  Good opportunity to spread the "green" beauty word!

First things first! Typical salon pedicure includes a tub filled with warm water and then typically what goes in that bath is green or blue salt.  When have you ever seen green or blue salt in the wild??  Never! Yuck! Who knows what is in that stuff!  However, I do know what is in Kosmatology Mint Your Feet Salt Foot Scrub.  I have you covered!

1) NATURAL FOOT SCRUB

Kosmatology Mint Your Feet Peppermint-Eucalyptus Mineral Salt Foot Scrub

Clean Ingredients are:

  • Sea Salt

  • Organic Safflower oil

  • Organic peppermint essential oil

  • Organic eucalyptus essential oil

That's it! So how about bringing Kosmatology Salt and having the pedicurist add a tablespoon to the water instead of their salt soak.  The mineral soak doubles as a salt scrub.  Then have them use it to scrub the bottom of your feet.  Two for the price of one!  OOOOh how amazing your feet will feel after!

Up next is to moisturize!  So let's talk for a moment about some of the stuff they use.  A particular brand that nail salons commonly use come in the bright colors of pink and lavender.  Pretty?  Let's look at some of the ingredients:

Aqua (Water) (Eau), Isopropyl Palmitate, Stearic Acid, Propylene Glycol, Cetyl Alcohol, Hydrogenated Soy Glyceride, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Dimethicone, Polysorbate 60, Sorbitan Stearate, Talc, Carbomer, Trisodium EDTA, Triethanolamine, Parfum (Fragrance), Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Phenoxyethanol.

Yeah no thanks! Not so pretty at all. Now let's look at your best natural alternative:

2) NATURAL FOOT BALM

Kosmatology Mint Your Feet Peppermint-Eucalyptus Soothing Foot Balm

Here are the clean ingredients in the Kosmatology Soothing Foot Balm:

  • Organic Shea Butter

  • Organic Coconut Oil

  • Organic Olive Oil

  • Candelilla wax

  • Sambucus nigra Fruit Extract

  • Organic Peppermint Essential Oil

  • Organic Eucalyptus Essential Oil

You tell me which one will dry out your feet even more than they already were??  Yes you got it, the conventional lotion.  When I was at the salon for my pedi, Alexa rolled the balm on my feet.  You heard me, rolled! Such a great idea for foot balm.

THE BEST NATURAL PEDICURE AT HOME

You may be wondering about now, "Francesca seriously!!  Ain't no body got time for that."  I hear you girl loud of clear!  Do what I usually do.  Give those tired and dry tootsies some TLC at home.  Janis suggests adding a tablespoon of the Mineral Salt Foot Scrub to your foot bath basin (or sit at the edge of your bathtub) and let your feet soak for pure bliss.  I actually just picked up a bath at Home Goods.  So I took Janis' suggestion and boy was that a treat.  Also I like to bring the salt in the shower and put some of it on a pumice stone and scrub the bottom of my feet.  Finally, the peppermint and eucalyptus cools, soothes and revitalizes my tired pups.

Now girls I'm about to drop a "balm" (yes pun intended LOL) on you...CRACK kills.  I am not talking about my latest visit from the plumber either.

Personally the heels of my feet crack from dryness and everything else I do to my feet during the day.  I am talking about the Mint Foot Balm.  It is a must have for the nightstand.  That's right, the foot balm continues the pampering session with organic peppermint and eucalyptus to cool and soothe.  The organic shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil works to repair and rehydrate those footies!  Yes and yes!!  I use this every night before I get under those covers!  Also, if you want to be a little "extra" put a pair of socks on after you roll the balm on and in the morning your feet will be screaming for joy.

WHERE TO BUY

Try these tips all winter long and come summer you will be flip flop and sandal ready. Because let's be real girls, we are all just counting down until beach season again! :) Grab a Mint Your Feet Gift Set at www.Kosmatology.com for you or your bestie! It's the perfect winter treat!
