Whether you’re poolside, beach-bound or city slicking, beautifying in the summer heat is an ordeal. In an effort to keep themselves matte, dry and smooth, many resort to a bevy of beauty products full of chemicals and unpronounceable preservatives. Toss the toxins and make summer sweeter (and sweat-proof!) with green products at JuJu Salon & Organics.
Philadelphia’s go-to resource for organic beauty supplies and treatments since opening in 2005, JuJu’s new expanded location on Fabric Row is full of products Mother Nature would be into. Combat underarm nastiness without the harmful aluminum oxide with Bubble & Bee Organic’s Pit Putty. Banish burn and retain a healthful glow with Keys Solar Rx Moisturizing Sunblock. Or create perfect straight-from-the-shore waves with vegan brand Sevi’s Blue Yarrow Hair Texturizer with Sea Salt. You’ll be looking good and doing good all in one gorgeous move.
JuJu has you covered when it comes to salon and spa services, too. The shampoo is sulfate-free, the cleansers clean of parabens. Hair dyes are free of ammonia and paraphenylene diamine. The holistic spa offers massages, scrubs, facials and waxes with all organic products. Even a simple manicure gets eco-friendly with non-toxic nail polish by Zoya.
Owner Julie Ebner has even taken her green approach to her locations, with both the salon and spa sporting Earth-lovin’ elements like recycled furniture, non-VOC paints, local artwork and utilities powered by wind.
