April 2019 • 49 None of this surprises Shannon McLinden, founder of popular natural skincare brand FarmHouse Fresh. "People are becoming more cognizant about what they're putting in their bodies and what's going on their skin," she says. "Spa-goers are willing to seek out treatments and products that are clean, effective and don't harm the environment—a combination they can feel good about." Emily Sindlinger, cofounder of Sorella Apothecary, agrees. "We're seeing more 'green' beauty because we've grown more aware of how many toxins we're exposed to in our daily lives," she says. "If we can minimize that exposure with cleaner skin care, we may absorb fewer harmful chemicals and ultimately keep ourselves healthier." While beauty trends come and go, this one looks like it's here to stay, adds Orleans, Massachusetts-based holistic esthetician Angela Thornton. "Choosing natural and organic skin care is not a passing trend— it's a lifestyle. My clients want to be more educated about what's in the products I use on their skin, and I'm fi elding every natural- beauty question under the sun." So, what does "natural" skin care or "green" beauty mean? And what should you know about it, so you can offer your clients the products that will keep them coming back for more? We asked manufacturers and spa pros for their take on this booming part of the beauty business.
