The past two decades has seen an explosion in international demand for natural goods of all sorts, including natural spa products. As part of a growing trend away from unnecessary and damaging synthetic chemicals, consumers in the United States and abroad are demanding more and more frequently that companies offer a natural option, and many people are choosing to "go natural" all together!
The results of this trend can be seen in products ranging from potato chips (in which high-fat synthetic cooking oils are being replaced with healthier canola and olive oils) to gift candles (where soy wax and beeswax have begun to replace traditional petroleum wax). And in what realm of product is naturalness more important than the soaps and lotions we rub onto and into our skin?
The skin is the largest organ of the body and is constantly absorbing those things that touch it and even elements in the air around the body. On the one hand, this means that if you have a lot of synthetic chemicals in your bath products, you will be absorbing those things through your skin. However, on the upside of this, if you choose to put natural, healing products onto your skin, those things will be absorbed and will help to support your whole body system. So, when it comes to bath products, as with food, we are lucky enough in the present day to be able to select products that help and heal us, even during those few moments a day when we are in the shower or applying lotions!
Credit for the recent trend toward natural spa products in the modern market must be at least somewhat attributed to Anita Roddick, who was deeply inspired after visiting a natural body care shop on Berkeley's Telegraph Avenue. The couple who ran the store, sold lotions, shampoos, and body creams, and cared deeply about environmental issues. They brought this care and sensitivity to the human body and the natural world in to their products. Roddick then took their idea to her home in Brighton, England, where she opened what would become the a massive international phenomenon of natural spa products, known as "The Body Shop."
