10 years with Eminence Organic Skin Care

10 Years with Eminence Organic Skin Care in my Spa

In the beginning of my Spa journey, after taking training in Oakland, California and Santa Fe, New Mexico I needed a skin care line to complement my body treatments which focused on European products from the Dead Sea, Moor in Austria and the sea weed off the shores of Britany.

I travelled to Spa Conferences in Banff, Vegas and Vancouver.

There are many products out there. Many products with interesting ingredients. I was searching for an organic product that delivered the results each person was looking for plus the company needed to provide training as well. I saw Boldijarre of Eminence Organic Skin Care arriving late with his few plastic vegetables and his green tent display in 2006. He had the biggest smile and an energetic vibrancy about him. I would meet him again in Vancouver 2007 at the Esthetics Spa International Conference. I once again visited many booths of skin care. I was convinced that Eminence was the product of choice. Conclusion:

  • Eminence is organic, handpicked grown mostly in Hungary
  • Eminence provides research and new products that deliver the results women and men are looking for
  • Eminence provides training – in house and many opportunities to learn more

Sunrise Wellness Spa was the second spa to bring in Eminence Organic Skin Care into Saskatchewan.

Geraldine is in the forefront of this amazing product that is made from Pure Fruits and Vegetables; cold pressed – so as not to disturb the effectiveness of the product. Made in a controlled environment in small batches to preserve the quality. No water is added to the product so all products contain 98% active ingredients.

Eminence sent two of their trainers to help launch Eminence into Unity in March of 2007. JoLynn Desjarlais (my first regional representative) brought two of her helpers and braved our Saskatchewan winter weather to be here to show Eminence to Unity residents. Geraldine brought in the full line of Eminence. Training was readily available for myself and my staff Lucy Koenig, Stacia Ramsay and Stefanie Rehauser.

Geraldine took all of her staff to Regional Training to have firsthand training from the Best of the Best.

We have reforested in Senegal, Africa

Through our Forest for the Future initiative we help over 284 families in Kongheul, Senegal grow sustainable Forest Garden Projects. Through our Forest for the Future initiative we help over 284 families in Kongheul, Senegal grow sustainable Forest Garden Projects.  Through these projects, participating farmers overcome issues that are common in their communities, grow trees to feed their families, create sustainable incomes and nurture the earth.

FORESTS FOR THE FUTURE: OVER 7 MILLION TREES PLANTED
Did you know that Éminence plants a tree for every single retail product sold? That’s given us the opportunity to plant over SEVEN million trees, providing the world with 1.6 billion pounds of oxygen each year – that’s enough oxygen for over one million people to breathe every year AND to offset the carbon emissions from over 40,000 cars every year! Now, this is a “tree-mendous” success in itself, but we’re doing a lot more than simply planting trees…

 

Our Forests for the Future Program, in partnership with the non-profit organization Trees for the Future, helps train farmers in developing countries around the world on how to build productive and sustainable Forest Gardens. Every tree we plant enables the development of these Forest Gardens in rural communities, empowering local people to restore their environment, grow their own food and build a sustainable income and future for themselves, their families and their communities.

 

 

 

 

We thank all our customers for contributing to this initiative which equals 128.5 acres

 

 

 

 

Éminence Kids Launches New Website & Mascot Name

SEPTEMBER 29, 2016 Written By:  Jessica Timberlake

Since 2013, the Éminence Kids Foundation has donated organic fruits, vegetables and juices to sick children around the world. Today, we’re proud to announce the next steps in our journey: a beautiful new website and a name for our teddy bear mascot.

Registered as a 501(c) (3) non-profit in the U.S., the Éminence Kids Foundation has served over 31,000 organic meals to seriously ill children to aid in their recovery and long-lasting

health. With the launch of our new website, we can now provide more information as well as accept online donations for the Foundation. We are excited to advance this important cause through this new destination online.

 

The Éminence Kids Foundation, founded by company owners Boldijarre and Attila Koronczay, shares the same beliefs in its mission to donate organic fruit, vegetables and juices to sick children around the world. Not only does the Foundation help children through their recovery, it also educates them about the importance of healthy, organic nutrition as an essential part of their treatment.

 

When we shared the vision of the Éminence Kids Foundation with Wellness Warrior, they saw the act of providing organic nutrition to sick children as a giant step towards accomplishing their mission. Damon from Wellness Warrior further explained his support:

“The simple act of giving when someone is in need is such a beautiful thing–and it is also how the world becomes a better place. I particularly appreciate how the Éminence Kids Foundation is supporting children.… the act of giving children nutritious juice during their recovery goes deeper than the importance of nutrition (though that is a vital part of healing). It becomes an emotional uplift–a way of showing up for people and letting them know that they are cared for, that they are loved and that things can and will get better. We need more of that in the world!”

Boldijarre is working very hard to become the number 1 skin care company in the world.

We at Sunrise Wellness Spa are very proud to bring Unity and district the finest of organic skin care that delivers results that the consumer is looking for. We have in house events with Christel who does the presentation and gives a wealth of knowledge. We have had a Pyjama Party, a Couples night as well as several other events. Watch for our advertising on these upcoming events offering door prizes and purchase deals. We thank Boldijarre for believing in rural communities and allowing his trainers to come to Unity to train us. Continue to share your winning smile where ever you go.

Attend our 10th Anniversary Celebration having Eminence Organic Skin Care in Unity!

Watch Facebook as we advertise daily and make time to stop in Thursday February 9th, Friday, February 10th and Saturday February 11th.

To continue in Boldijarre’ s spirit we are donating $1.00 from each product sold to  “UNITE for a Miracle, a local group organized to give back to Telemiracle so another  family will get the help Jeremy and Cherie Wagner received 9 years ago. A way to Share the love.

My Staff, Verlie Deuchar and Ellie Leidl are knowledgeable with the entire Eminence line in order to assist you. Spend time at the spa and enjoy the transformation.

Parabens and Laurel Sulfates

Parabens and Laurel Sulfates

Are parabens and phthalates harmful in makeup and lotions? By Jill U. Adams September 1, 2014

Should you worry about the chemicals in your makeup, lotion, shaving cream, soap and shampoo? The answer is maybe…. Why maybe? Because some critics suspect that chemicals such as phthalates and parabens can interfere with the body’s hormones, most notably reproductive hormones such as estrogen and testosterone. The possible health risks could include chronic diseases, cancers and a host of developmental disorders and fertility problems.

Here’s what’s certain: Phthalates and parabens are not inert substances: They have biological activity. In animal studies, for instance, some phthalates act to counter male hormones and disrupt development of male sex organs. Both phthalates and parabens act on estrogen pathways, which in humans have been associated with such varied effects as decreased sperm count, endometriosis and insulin resistance.

Here’s what’s not certain: the level of chemical exposure that might pose a risk to human health and whether even the highest exposures measured in people are a problem.

Scientists continue to study the effects of these endocrine disruptors and have investigated possible links to miscarriage, premature birth, birth defects, deficient sperm, obesity, metabolic disease, bone density and breast cancer. But how much exposure might lead to these health risks simply isn’t known, and scientists cannot ethically conduct tests to directly show such effects.

If a product’s label says phthalate-free or paraben-free, that provides clarity. Otherwise, there’s no way to be sure, says John Meeker, an associate professor of environmental health sciences at the University of Michigan. “It could be in there under vague names like ‘fragrances.’ ”

“Fragrance can include dozens, hundreds of chemicals,” Brody says. “Avoiding fragrance is one way you can reduce your exposure.”

Several studies have shown that the more toiletries people use, the more phthalates and parabens end up in their bodies. For instance, a recent study asked 177 pregnant women which personal care products they used and analyzed their urine for evidence of phthalates and parabens. The number of products a woman used correlated with the amount of chemicals found in her urine. Of all the products used, lotions, cosmetics, hair gels and perfumes were the biggest contributors.

A similar study of 337 postpartum women found nearly three times the amount of one particular phthalate in the women who used perfume. Hair spray, nail polish and deodorant use were also identified as contributors.

To avoid these chemicals altogether, what should you do? Meeker says that, if given the option, he’ll choose a phthalate-free or paraben-free product. Brody advises using fragrance-free products. “That gets rid of a whole class of chemicals.”
