Good Body Products Solid Scents were featured in Gift Shop Magazine along with an interview with formulator and founder Trish Naudon Thomas.
Industry analysts predict the natural and organic personal care market will be valued at $19 billion by 2015. "It's smart business to make safe cosmetics," says Margie Kelly, media relations manager for Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is a coalition working to clean up the beauty aisle through public advocacy and market campaigns designed to eliminate dangerous chemicals linked to cancer, reproductive harm and other adverse health impacts from cosmetics and personal care products.
Trish Naudon-Thomas, co-founder and Chief Formulator of Vermont-based Good Body Products, attributes the increase in demand for green body care products to be largely the result of Internet social media spreading awareness of holistic, homeopathic and organic alternatives to unsafe products.
"More and more people are learning about the often-unsafe chemicals many of us are exposed to every day," Naudon-Thomas says. "In addition, the increase of modern maladies has left people cautious and more aware of what they put in and on their bodies. People are starting to move away from the quick fix, 'take a pill' mentality to a more natural, 'take more pure' mindset."
Good Body Products use the therapeutic qualities of herbs, essential oils and other natural ingredients to create 100 percent organic, healing body care products, adds Naudon-Thomas.
