SPOTLIGHT ON: Spirit Beauty Lounge

If doing your part to save the world means buying organic, fair trade or all-natural beauty products, here’s a byte for you.

SpiritBeautyLounge is the brain-child of artist, activist and self-proclaimed “beauty warrior,” Spirit Demerson, who after spending years searching for effective organic beauty products, grew frustrated by the less-than-luxurious selection available at natural foods markets and decided to launch her own healthy hub this past fall.

The one-stop, carbon-neutral shop carries products from companies like Jurlique, All the Better to Kiss You With, and Patyka with clearly defined humane, ethical, and environmental policies. Spirit also hawks recycled and vintage jewelry and accessories (see: Mad Imports), non-toxic household cleaning products, and organic cocktail mixers…hello!

But, getting back to business: Spirit Beauty Lounge discusses all aspects of manufacturing and production with its vendors to ensure that no sweatshop labor or animal testing (gross!) is ever used and that fair trade claims are always certified. Plus, the solar energy-powered site’s shipping and office facilities run on wind and hydro energy.

How’s that for leading by example? We say: SpiritBeautyLounge is a good thing – for you and for Mother Earth.
