Green still a growing trend in spa, bath, baby and body industries
Still a buzzword in many industries, including the spa, bath, baby and body markets, “green” products are gearing up to make a big splash for 2011. Historically, beauty companies have been criticized for unethical and unsustainable business practices that include animal testing and chemical pollution.
However, market research company Organic Monitor reports that the beauty industry has begun to clean up its image by investing in specific corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability initiatives.
A new infant’s delicate skin is often sensitive to the chemicals found in many skin products. Ilumina Organics’ baby products are carefully designed and manufactured with this sensitivity in mind. The creators of the Ilumina Organics line have made it their mission to educate customers on the chemicals used in many beauty products and to give them viable alternatives. They use only the most natural, sustainable ingredients possible, and take care to explain every ingredient in each product. Even the bottles and packaging are BPA-free.
We’re here at the ABC, ready to greet you all personally and show off our great new products. Visit us in the Naturally Kids section, Booth # 2021. Don’t forget to ask about our great show special in honor of our first time exhibition!

An important aspect of being a responsible children’s retailer is educating customers about modern safety concerns and the related improvements that have been made to products. Bisphenol-A (BPA), a once widely-used plasticizer in baby bottles, plastic bottles, food can linings and microwavable dishes, has recently been linked to serious health problems. Reassure your customers that there are innovative, BPA-free products available, like these from Silikids, Vapur and Base Brands, that they can feel secure about using for their children and themselves. Here’s a toast to good news!
